"pouria" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist
"Thanks to Chris Sherman for that report, while listening to that with me, is Agnes pouria, whose journalist and an author most recently of Notre-Dame the soul of France. And as we're going to have a flick through the French papers, but I just wondered what your feelings off the back of that piece are in terms of Macron and his relationship with Europe. Well, I mean, I completely agree that is the young ambitious optimistic voice for Europe. And with the departure of Angela Merkel, having been in power for 5 years, he sounds and behave as if he might be the optimistic leader of the EU. I slightly disagree with what was said about his. Relationship with Vladimir Putin, especially compared to his challenges for the presidential elections. If you look at Marin le pen, of course, on the far right, even further where on the far right, and on the far left, or admires, almost psycho fans, really, have Vladimir Putin. Emmanuel Macron is not at all appropriate in any way. Also, what he said about NATO a few years back when he said it was Brenda actually was the fact and the events have vindicated him not that NATO was Brenda, but that a European common policy in terms of defense and security was something that Europe really needed. And it's something that he was almost a voice in the desert when he was saying this 5 years ago and now it seems something that is self evident Europe needs to be able to have its own security and defense policies and not always rely on the U.S. for this. Let's have a look at what the French papers are saying today. So the Parisian and express both have articles about the far left leader. Yes, well, John is this very interesting figure of French politics is really changed. He's 70 and he's been with us, at least politically active for 45 years. I've always known that John McMillan also, he was part of the Socialist Party once, is now much more on the left than he used to be. He's also in the last few years, had embraced some dodgy pauses and controversial views, but still the French really likes only been on perhaps because I would say one of the best, if not the best, the raider of the National Assembly. When he speaks people listen, even if the disagree with him, he's got something with the French language. And also he can be extremely funny. So he's very, very popular. And he's got 5 days to actually overthrow if you'd like my parents that the president's challenger. So both the Parisian express are looking at what they call the last battle of the lion. And it might be the eldest candidate, but is also lost technology. And just imagine that, tonight, he will be in 11 different French cities at once and how does he achieve this by hologram? And something he started 5 years ago. So in 11 different French cities in France, it will be present. It will be, I think, in little in the flesh and in hologram in ten other cities. So that will be interesting. And there's also something on SnapChat. I used it yesterday. I tried it. And you can have genre men on show in your living room. By hologram. It works. And it's quite funny. So yeah, extraordinary. And so really manage to get to the second round. We'll know on Sunday, certainly believes it is possible, and it has that fire in him, which is extraordinary to see, but you know, he's got 5 days left. Yeah. LeMond is looking at what happens the day after Macron's were almost certain reelection on April 25th, tell us more about that. Well, I wouldn't say it's certain. Let's say it looks probable. So very interestingly, that it won't be the end of the affair, the end of the story on April the 25th, Macron is elected, fine. But then the battle for his succession will start straight away because he will be he won't be able to seek a third mandate because that's the law and also remember his party is very young. His party is not very well implemented and present on the whole of France. And he completely depends on a coalition of allies of alliances. And so it is interesting now that you have the figure of edouard Philippe, his p.m. prime minister for a few years. Who comes from the right from le Republican Party. And he set up his own little party called horizons, and you will be seeking, I think, to unseat his former political family. Just and to support president Macron's new majority, the National Assembly. So that's the right wing of Macron's party and on the left. Former heavyweights of the Socialist Party, like Jean Pierre Chauvin, they've just set up their own little movement, let's say, the name is the federation progresses, the progresses federation, and they will represent the left wing of immersion party or grand coalition if you'd like to reprise a German. Term. So that will be very interesting because it's coming the legislative elections are taking place early June. And just finally before we go and yes, I know that your apartment looks out over Notre-Dame and in fact your last book released during lockdown was Notre-Dame that the soul of the soul of France, and I know that you monitoring what's happening there very closely. How is that rebuild going? Well, it's going well, but archeologists are making discoveries almost every week. So two weeks ago they undoubted sarcophagi. In lead and extremely well preserved and also some remnants, very beautiful remnants of praying hands, the head of a sculptor, man. And also vegetables with traces of color paints, and so of course that will slow down the process and they will need to excavate all those fines and discoveries. And it's extraordinary that 9 years, 900 years after it was built, you still find things. So yeah, you should check out the Instagram account of Notre-Dame de Paris. And you will see all this. And it's really extraordinary. Excellent. And yes, thank you very much indeed. That's Agnes Poirier there. And if you'd like to hear Anya's talk about her book, not to damn the soul of France, just to check out our archives, we had a long conversation about this overlooking Notre-Dame in Paris and you can hear that conversation on meet the writers.

"pouria" Discussed on Equity
"I just. I love a big deal because they're fun to write about and they're exciting. And you get us on Twitter spaces to talk and hang out with people. But I struggle. I wouldn't do it. I wouldn't do the deal. One potential route that has kind of convinced me the best so far is one that today de pouria mentioned on Twitter. He said he does really great work. His self suck is great. Everyone should read it. He was saying that people CEO Dan schulman has talked about PayPal want to become a super app in the past. Basically quoting that PayPal has claimed that they were going to create a digital wallet that will bring together disparate capabilities that range from payments to shopping, content to financial services into one super app. And so some people think that as PayPal starts to become a super up and needs to have content as part of that. So maybe Pinterest is like a content play. Meh. No. We hate it. I mean, the only thing Pinterest has done from a content perspective as far as I can tell is ruined Google image search. Because whenever you search for an image now, it's just Pinterest. Then it takes you to pinch us. And once you log in, I'm like, no, I just want to see the images. Stop, stop SEO in me. That is something though, you know? I feel like the fact that they are showing up that much, probably a force to be reckoned with on a force you want on your team. I mean, to be clear there are public company. They're big. Pinterest has passed the doesn't matter threshold. It's certainly does. But in a PayPal context, that's when I'm just a little more skeptical. On the super app point, I love it. I think we're also seeing square, go that route. They're trying to work on both a business facing payment service, and also a suite of consumer services to leverage the fact that they have this wide user base. And from that end cool. Maybe maybe the idea is that PayPal can bring instead of Pinterest bringing ecommerce to PayPal, maybe PayPal can bring ecommerce to Pinterest. And if that's the case, it's ironic because do you recall the very messy divorce between eBay and PayPal? I don't. I don't remember it at all, actually. Also, we just were about to get kicked out of our zoom. So that's good. Love that. So I just want to point out that you're not allowed to make me feel that old when I'm working late. That's not a lot..
"pouria" Discussed on UFC Unfiltered with Jim Norton and Matt Serra
"Saw. I question my friend. What is the fast. Ufc fight you remember. What should i. The first time i saw the. Ufc was way back in nineteen ninety six. I worked in a video cassette rental store. This is how people used to buy. I used to rent movies. And we had a whole section for ufc fights and this is pretty fascinating and and promised to be very violent. I watched it. It was one round for twenty five minutes. They're kind of locked up for like the whole time. And i thought well this isn't very violent So side i did become a really die hard fan when i really fell in love with it was when there was all the hype surrounding ronda. Rousey yeah met. Ronda rousey should. She had Her training facility in glendale california and it was attached to the little office where you would go to apply for your Tsa pre check. Which would allow you to get through the airport without taking off your shoes. I was just trying to get my pre check clearance and next thing you know. I'm talking to ronda rousey. And and and i really got it got into it so i wanted to watch all all of her stuff. I and then that wow you know. This is actually really really exciting. So it's it's been five or six years that i've been pretty die hard and i've become such a maniac for it like i watch. I watch every fight. What would you most called. I was watching. I'm your tweet. Came up and then they gave you a saw. I don't know if you if you had two saw but they will us tvos watching. I thought very gus for you but thank you saw mid fight. I appreciate that. Yeah brendan fitzgerald said. Stephen likes what he sees and i did. I don't think there's anything i've been in a shot mid fight. You know the tweet coming up on the screen is good but getting the i. That's that's the next level right question. He's favorite ufc fight overtime man. That's such a tough one. My girl and i are both rabid fans we sit down we watch you know for six hours from the fight. Pass prelims on and there's only one fighter who when this fighter fights we can almost not stand the anxiety because if anything bad happens rose nominee unions. It's going to destroy dog. Rose thug rose. We love her so much that we almost like can't stand the anxiety of watching her fight because we so don't want anything bad to happen to her. When thug rose. I knocked out. You wanna nj check like we were jumping up and down on the sofa like tom. Cruise doing an oprah interview was it was it. I mean she likes her so much was it. Wasn't he love about you. Know i would have to say that it is her humility. You know. I of the belief that it's possible to be a star in the ufc and have humility and respect and integrity in all of this Trash talk and being the villain and being disrespectful of your opponents like it a little bit rubs me the wrong way you know i. I don't care for it as much as fighter with with real class like destined pouria. And i'm speaking with dustin pori a after the last mcgregor fight and i told him i said you know what man not only happy for you. But i'm happy with the idea that we could usher in a new era. Where the stars of the us the you have seen can be like really classy. Have humility be good people. And what dustin said was he said man. That's what i want for the whole world. You know what. I want people in the all the people in the world to be like what a great guy. I understand that the fight game is show business. It's entertainment and so you've gotta get attention you've got to create a story line. You know there is value in being disliked. I mean take kobe. Covington for example. I love watching that guy fight. I feel so invested in disliking colby. Covington that i could almost say he's my favorite fighter. You know so. I understand the you know the dynamics of fight promotion but i also just wish that That there is a real reward for being a classy guy with humility. You know like rob rob whitaker. He was saying. Hey man. I know that. The title shot. I should be talking trash and this and that was. That's just not me and that kind of hurt me in my heart. I want like. I want that for the good guys question. What is your favorite. Yes he fight that you have attended or watched you know. I gotta i gotta say it's a toss up between this last one between dustin and connor because i mean i was sitting right next to donald trump and justin bieber. You know the celebrity firepower at you have to sixty four was really off the charts. Man always mcgregor fight as far as actual fights go being in the very front row watching whitaker romero to in chicago. This happened and June of twenty eighteen and god. It was incredible fight. That hall event was was unbelievable. And si- right up close in person from the front row a love. That was incredibly. You call go room. I mean i mean i.

Portia when cook when mcgraw pouria a and he says good will always prevail and then You know conner. Conner's crazy as he. He rose man is good versus evil with been about along the lines. That kind of covert kind of took your dad in that sense like going below the belt. You know what i'm saying. Why completely but something. That i will say about that. Your dad has always said that at one time at one point he would invite conor mcgregor to a barbecue. Like my my my was like different level about like this situation. He always like his heart was like so like clean. You know and the like when he talked about this in all only evil can talk about your father like y kids religion like if you normal like human the you never gonna talk about this stuff you know like for me is like show. I think he posted this tweet. Like drunk too much or do something you and the next day i think and he always deleted his and i think when he become a normal life in his would. I did like he did. This is my opinion. What do like all the time. Yeah how would you take that mike. How would you take that for you know. Obviously we gotta sell the fight. But there's a limit man there's a hey man you you know a listen Talking about people's dads and co woods. Listen the perishing is no In this business everything else. Everything goes komo in the fight. Everything goes no. I agree when you if you wanna promote the fight by a lake when when someone is not with us you know he's not even i think this is like come on. This is showing what you have inside. This is show your like how dirty you are like. This is show like when you come when you when one of the best in the world and you'll come in you punch someone like seventy seven years old. Go like old man. This is show your heart. This is show who you are inside. How dirty you are you know. And you know like When you have parents innuendo you have kids how you can show yourself like this. I don't understand why his clothes people don't tell him. Hey can i give you. I just want to know from your perspective. Obviously there's something about mike that i will say that. He's you've reconciled with everybody. Mike from lennox lewis over. Couldn't another theft of kill me. Having to greg not like informatics a lot of energy the energy everybody. My kids grandparents white cousins estimates people. I loved the with ends of fucking scumbag. Wanna do a couple of years. They got me in that. Ibm jaylen should not today. Yeah so he he said could be beat. Mike doesn't hold grudges. It's too much into hold grudges are you are you out. That grudge a stage with mcgregor. That's okay man. We're all human dude. It's okay to fill a little animosity towards somebody but you think you'll ever let it go You know. I think i think I think lake one of the biggest reason why i become champion. I think this is about my mental How i can come pull my emotional you know. I think i can control anything. Anything happened with me in the world. I can control this. I can handle this. You know and i know a lot of people like i remember when of when i'm supposed to fight with him like like coach. Tell me hey you you have to focus. You know like and i was like coach. I'm focused you say. Oh you call home mukul. France said no. i'm good. This is normal for me useful after like thirty minutes. You'll biggest fight in your life because fight near. He's sort of become your call. Your friends on form. Like i said coach. Don't worry everything is good. I'm good i'm relaxed. And when time comes. I'm gonna show you what do you what do you think. What do you think. Conor mcgregor is missing in his life. Lee what do you think is You say if you had to pinpoint one thing when you become rich winning become famous Some people they lose real real people around him they lose them because Because real people who love you they're gonna tell you true but fake people they always say. Oh you good you good you good you like. They never satan say to nothing because they don't want to upset you because they know they're going to lose this comfortable but but but real people. They don't care about this they was. They was with you before you become famous and rich and they don't care about your money they don't care about your fame they just love you and they when they say to you through. You don't like this because of your ego. You know and i think he loses a lot of people in team. Yeah just my opinion. I don't think he have like people who was with him before when he become champion and the everybody needs someone who remind you. Hey you're doing this. This is bad. This is good. This is bad this is life. You don't need yes men. You don't need people they just to just by. Obviously you've been there mike. What's your take on what he just said. Mike i people are men who like monkeys high. We get the more we show. Ads said again a monkey. The high we get the more we show. I asked people like this with most of the people like this is not everybody but most most most of the people i have like. I'm i'm i'm liking this life. Honestly i think i think Blake old people who own me. They was like when beginning. When i was like nobody they was was made like right now. They still with me know. I am very happy about this brotherhood. Max i know these guys like my you talk about our brotherhood. I learned a lot of that from ali. Man like you know like the do.

"pouria" Discussed on GSMC Movie Podcast
"It is creativity in youthfulness trying to find its way into this conflicted young adult who is on this bridge to adulthood trying to remember. Hey you can work. You need to make sure that you work and take take your life seriously but also that you need to remember to have faith in yourself and always remember that you need to be able to have a little fun and be creative because that is how you're going to get through life and i think it's a very beautiful message Especially when when put that way and I think that there's something else that i need to talk about. Two which is the title When you look at the title what can we see well while it is in fact. So it's mr magouras wonder emporium while it is in fact. Run by mr magoo. I would say that's not the important part here. That's not the important part of the title. What is an emporium. Has anyone ever thought about this simply put. It's a retail store that provides something i. It's a store. It's something that you that you go in you get something from it. Well what is important What's important about this is that never. Has this building ever claimed to be a toy store. Isn't that interesting. How we see this and it appears to be a toy store but the title of the movie doesn't say toy store it says wonder emporium the character. Mr mcguigan doesn't ever refer to it as a toy store. The only person that refers to it as a toy store is henry and in mali. But that's the adult hood. Part of mali. Talking when she's talking to eric and she's like oh i can't keep working at the The toy story that that's the only time they refer to as a toy store and emporium. I think it's important to note that emporium is not a toy store. Those aren't synonymous a an emporium. An emporium what that pokemon was gone. am am pouria. Must forget what the word wise emporium is essentially. Just that it's a store that's all it is. It's a place it's a retail place where you can go and buy stuff. So is it a toy store. No now mr mma him even explicitly states it is in fact not a toy store but instead he says oh. It's so much more that's what he says. These these are quotes now. I'll say this to it. Provides wonder to its customers. That is what it's selling a quote unquote on selling. It provides wonder to its customers which speaks volumes based on everything else that we've discussed so far so the point of mr magori wonder emporium is to help. Kids stay in tune with their own youthfulness into let's say even strengthen their youthfulness and create some kind of foundation there it is to reinforce young adults to go into their adulthood with this level of creativity and youthfulness and it is. It's the responsibility of this emporium to bring people like henry that do all work and no play and remind them that even though they aren't adult that they they should remember to stay the at heart. Our kids that they are. They are a kid at heart. I say a bold theory that i have is that mr memoriam is the wonder emporium so this is a slightly different conversation here. There's not a lot of backup. This idea That mr mugabe is actually the emporium itself But it certainly does mir his same sense of humor in its playfulness and when mr Mr goria seems to be sick in a little bit..
"pouria" Discussed on You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen
"Champion now but he got dominated in round one and two out of three judges gave chandler eight before oliver went on to win the belt. How can we not give mcgregor the same benefit of the doubt. Here he might have had a chance to win the fight. Thanks joe hoisted by my own baton. That is an interesting point by you. It really is an interesting point. Now the charlie olvera fight versus chandler was significantly different in all fairness. If we're only going to turn to the ten eight as our reasoning you got legs to your argument. You have legs. They're using some word play but it's still well done. I'm going to give you full credit. That was a different fight. If you'll recall all of our head knocked chandler down had sworn him made the fight eligible for tko which is what makes it eligible for ten eight but chandler came back. do you remember that route. Chandler had his own moments within that fight. Conor just didn't have any. He just did it. I'm not crazy about continuing to speak about this fight. I was just on. Espn doing the tail. Senate show by the way. What appreciate if you all gave that. Watch over on plus. But i want to tell you this. I'm finding myself every time. I talk about this fight putting connor doubt. I just don't like that. I don't like to kick a guy when he's down. I like to offer a hand up. If i want to knock him down later two different story but not once. He's already down. No part of me is looking to do that. And i hope that my words aren't coming out that way. There's also no other way for me to talk about and reflect on that fight and find a positive outlook. It was a beating eating. There was nothing that went great for connor not to mention the i q man i really gotta turn to that and i feel that i'm the only one that's talking about it to poll a guillotine on dustin pouria right with high risk high reward but to pull a guillotine up against the fence. There was simply no chance of that working and he never recovered from that position. So i gotta give him a not. I don't. I don't fault for trying to win the fight and trying to finish it. You gotta go do those things. You've gotta take those risks but to come to that position not realize that it was as soon as dustin cleared the legs instantly get to an under can use that wall to get yourself to her feet. It's just not what con would have done in any other fight so there was some slipping. They're not just what the hands not just with the feet. Not just with the lack of offense from the bottom or the inability to stand up but also with the i q that puts you in that position to start with now. That doesn't totally pertain to what you're asking you're asking. How can we count connor out just because it was a ten eight we can't we simply can't i also don't know that i've heard that argument made. I know that. I certainly haven't made it. I have made one argument which is for the fight that did take place. It was a domination. It was a beating to prove my thesis that it was dominant beating is where i bring in the ten eight rounds. It wasn't three tenths. By the way it was to sal d'amato had at ten nine so i only bring that you because for what did take place under the unified rules. The fighter in the corner did not stop at. The referee considered but did not in a higher power stepped in. That's not great and karna really wanted to be doctor stoppage. He thought that was a good reason. That was a good reason to explain away a defeat while the doctor stopped at as though brushing it off. I'm correcting that. That has never been told accurately and boxing's guilty to when a doctor has to step in. Think about it. A boxing right. You've seen guys get cuts. You sit. Were so bad or as is closed them in some really tough stuff where the referee stops. It brings doctrine. Everybody's breathing everybody's rest. Everybody's getting recovery time and the doctor waves it off. The refs should have made that call in all fairness. That's the way the story should be told. The doctor has to come.

"Connors post by poor reaction and response. I don't mean in the ring. I don't mean right. They're caught in that moment. You could bring that in. I'll take anything after the fight but it's still going on to this day right messages that are put out there and then messages have been deleted. Most recently today was two different things. First off refusing to admit that he lost the fight he lost the fight because it was a doctor stoppage not that he was losing that round not that he was dominated. Not that herbon will stop the fight to different times and then adding in also today that he entered that fight hurt. You can ask anyone. You can ask dana. you can ask dr davidson. I stress factors going into that fight. I'm just saying how. Do we interpret that congress. Not wrong for doing any of these things. This is very in line. With what fighter say after they lose a fight and they get embarrassed. It's very very. It's just not in line with the way. Connor has done it before. Connors been very gracious. Always even if you go back to the second fight. Conor got cleaned up. Says i gotta make some adjustments. That guy's got a hell of a weapon. I wasn't familiar with that calf kick. I gotta change some stuff on my history. Says that i've pretty good it make adjustments. Let's do it a third time. But he was a real gentleman. I could say that about every connor defeats hat. I could even say about a couple of victories right. In the moment he still marketing. He grabs that microphone. He'd lines up. What's next tinos the deal. But i think of the night that he beat pouring aerial goes into the locker room interviews him and connor right. You remember. I don't mean poor. Yeah i mean Cowboy but you guys remember that fight with cowboy a real pr tour. He did what he needed to do. Right in the moment right after the fight when everybody's watching but he goes in the back he's a little calmer it's gonna dot com. It's gonna pop up a few hours later. He knew his market and he was a real gentleman again. So how do we juxtaposed that. Connor with this connor. And do we need to be judged. And that's where. I get a hard time guys. I'm a bit of a connor defender. In this first off he was broken in half. That's a totally different loss than anything. I can relate to in few things that i've ever even seen. I've only seen that injury four times. I could name them. Corey hill anderson silva chris wiedeman conor mcgregor. I remember those nights that they happen though because they hurt me they hurt. I saw it hurt. It hurt me physically to see that in a demon happened to me one of those things. Just a weird reaction. But i remember them all very well. Connor was the only one of those four that was spoken to in that moment. Whatever comes out of his mouth for me as a human. This is the human talk not the fight fan. He's gonna get a pass could batter indifferent he gets a pass. That's not normal. Him comes out after the fact he puts out some things on twitter when we have every reason to believe that. he's on a assortment of painkillers. More likely than not morphine. Who let him have his phone in his hand in. The first place is a great much greater question that we should all be looking at pointing the finger to then what connor tweeted out and pushed a button that then got the sense in deleted. Come on am only asking you in this moment. How do we take these. Two polar opposites. Because there's a very opposite thing happening here we're seeing opposite. Preparations that admittedly is through rumor. We never knew how he was training back when things were going well. We don't fully know how he's training out when things aren't but the rumors in the reports are different very very different. The performances are very very different. It looks like a different guy in there. Some of the speed is gone. Some of the ability to withstand gone ikea. Keep pointing those things apple. Why i'm not looking to kick a guy just sharing its opposite. It's different for this specific. Fight the lead up particularly forty eight hours before the lid came off right. Connor was doing no media. He lifted a live on that same eight hours before bell time. Do we chalk that up to. Let's squeeze every last dollar we can get out of it. Pay per view identity. I thought that was connor. Trying to put himself in a position that old car used to be in. It's a very real thing we've done that. As athletes i when i grew up and got out of the nest certified myself some big opportunities. I used to go back to my childhood club now. I don't think there was a whole lot in fairness that i could gain working out with nine fourteen seventeen year old kids but it was a mindset. Is trying to take yourself back trying to remember some of that hunger. Gotcha there in the first place. So i just thought i recognized. Connor was doing. I thought i recognized what connor started going at a little harder than usual that he was trying to get that brash. Hungry self back. That's what i saw. How do we interpret what he's doing now by running things back because he's not lying. Did he have stress factors shore. Maybe did maybe let's just say he did. I got stress factors right now. I haven't traded x. Amount of time share with you. Connor did not have any stress fractures. That pouria did it have the fact that he admitted it and used as an excuse very in line with what other fighters do just unique for mcgregor. He's never done that before right. He's never made himself look weak. He's always sold power. He'd has none. he's never had power but he's given the perception he does and he sold that very well. He's now doing the opposite. We're not used to it. He's not wrong. I've heard people come down and talk about what a poor is. Connor is doing right now. Trying to explain a way in embarrassing loss is perfectly in line. With how every other fighters ever acted he just hasn't done it. I think that part of the story should be told. He's not doing anything. That's that's people giving him a hard time right now like he's being some kind of a jerk okay. Grant within that goes for everybody else. That's ever got a loss ever. They all do that. Same thing all of them he never heard so and so doesn't have a boys believe me. He did do it in his small circle of ten people want to hear from him. Connor just happens to have ten billion people that want to hear from them right. It's it's a different thing. It's the same message. I'm sharing with you even as i'm attempting to defend connor. I'm sharing with you. I've never seen him sell weakness or appear. We asked dr davidson. Ask dana. you know there was times in my life that i had to bring a note from my mother if i was sick one day. Miss school then. I got to college. I was a grown ass man. All i had to do is show up. Ask you know. Ask dr davidson day. It was one of these things. You can also get a stress fracture. How would you know a stress fracture. It's a little bit of them right now. I don't share that with you in belly who it's nothing to. Connor had some kind of a pain and he went to a doctor and the doctor. X ray them. I mean this whippy stuff. This is whippy stuff to the highest degree. That is also very normal. Anyone else that had a pain go ask daca dachshunds extra. There's nothing out of line here. Just very out of line for connor. I'm never seen him. Try to look weak. I've never seen him not very conscious. Oh looking powerful. As opposed to looking. Week i'm surprised by it. I don't know how to interpret it. Charles olivera came out today and said that he believes connors. Going to be out for six weeks. And i'm sure when he returns he will buy fight. Dustin pori now charles was trying to be very nice charles even in that same statement said we should give connor a standing ovation. I don't like the way he promotes fights. I don't like that brashness. But he's done a great job for himself and that's who is first obligations to. I tip my hat to charles was. It was very beautiful with charles. Had to say charles.

"Fields vegas july twenty twenty one half to give a report on vegas so much going on the positive. I think this was the most crowded july day. That i've ever seen on the las vegas strip since i have lived here. Confluence of events had a bruno. Mars concert had a garth brooks concert. Us olympic basketball team playing here. And there's going to be a w. nba all star game. All right. maybe that's not so important. But the first three certainly the first to mackenzie driving into the strip. I'm going in the back way again. I don't get on. I fifteen but some driving along adjacent to hide way. I'm passing mandalay bay. And i'm hearing seeing the signs. You ge- delays parking event parking eighty dollars on the strip. So forget about free parking by the way if you do come to vegas a lot or you live in vegas The way out of paying for parking his sign up for the mgm resorts credit card. That will get you pearl status on your players card pearl status people park for free. So that's the best bet that you absolutely have to take advantage of. But just walking around pandemic sham democ. There is no pandemic in terms of the perception of those attending all these events. Because it was as crowded as i've ever seen in vegas. Why is that significant while one. I think that vegas is going absolutely boom here in the rest of the the year this year in terms of sports betting in terms of all aspects of gambling because the crowd. The pent-up demand is so huge. How does that help us as sports bettors. Why think it certainly helps us with more public money entering into the pool. And you'll start to see things where you'll get line moves that will go contrary to what they should examples this past weekend. I really think you got to go ahead and take a look at the mcgregor pouria fights where despite every pro that i spoke to saying boy was had tremendous value and that conor mcgregor is best days for the notorious one are behind him that You could really get bargains on a specifically wynn. Las vegas when as low as minus one twenty when the market was minus one forty. I saw some other shops at minus one twenty five. I know what some folks are saying. Says your pass posting this easy to pick the winner after the fact well my ac- fight of the year. Wasn't he'd poor. So i was on him before the fight. And certainly lots of value going against conor mcgregor similar to the mayweather mcgregor fight where literally every pro better. I know did bet on mayweather in a boxing match. If you have a undefeated boxer against a pretty good yes see fighter. And they're in a boxing match mckenzie. Who you bet on the undefeated boxer. There you go you know. I did want to mention also that the limits though in town have not been going up by what. I've been observing so oftentimes hard to make a whole lot of money but this is really an exception to the rule where you can go ahead and get down big on things like a big. Ufc fight. and. I can attest last week last wednesday when you came in you had the exact same. We had the exact same conversation about roy mcgregor. The question was is one hundred ten degrees outside in vegas. Will there be enough public bedding to get that number down in the win. That's a place where a lot of you know. International clientele likes to arrive at five star resort. I'm wondering if all the international money maybe some irishmen For some good crack some grand time came to the win and cut that number down and you let me know about that minus one twenty. Thank you because. I did take advantage yet. I think that this was a perfect storm. It was so crowded. The pros know about the wind but like on the app. I bet it on the appaling mice when twenty two hundred dollar limit on my app and that's nice and i was thinking no you really should drive over the win and get down and i thought to myself. How much are they going to give me. If i actually go there in person and make this bet maybe to win five hundred they have not barred me but they've certainly backed me off in terms of taking large wagers. And so was it worth my time to go over there and lay that minus twenty to get another nickel when i could just bet minus one thirty effortlessly at several other shops. Pretty much whatever. I wanted to bet and i gotta be honest the bruno mars concert and the garth brooks concert and all that traffic. And i said it's gonna be a good hour and a half to get across town to the win and back and it just wasn't worth my time given. I didn't think that they would take a really big bat. And i think there's other pros who thought that way and because of that there just wasn't enough pro money to balance the public money coming in on the notorious one last thing for me on las vegas coming back to life. You've mentioned frank daily. Not exactly the best vegas player. The us olympic team. They lost two huge upsets. A thirty point favorite. A nineteen point favorite back to back losses you. We've never seen in college basketball. We looked it up. Wonder if that's something to do with it. I think that's a sage piece of advice there. By the way you said frank daily you want to John daly their way..

"Not and Yeah that's been spent a good thing you know we went on. We went out on a saturday night and we had a little stuffed. Shouldn't have fucking eight. But i've been good all week but then and then me and my wife went to this place. I got the hiccups. Now and watch the conor mcgregor verse. Dustin pouria fight Which it sucked away and did. I was rooting for conor mcgregor. Because i really wanted Hate when oh on an older only thirty two but when an older great fighter loses hate that thing where all of these people on twitter who haven't had a fight since like fucking high like me over so you can ask me start talking shift to somebody like that. I just hate that or they. You know i always just feel like you know. Certain people seem like certain announces. You know they enjoy when the champ gets knocked off his throne. Because i think this is a lot of people that just can't handle like how bad ass like it's the most bad ass thing ever man or woman you just walk into a fucking arena to fight and you come out victorious. I don't give a fuck what anybody in the crowd did. Nobody is cooler than that. You know you gotta go to like somebody was like a war hero to beat that so you know. I don't know that was probably wasn't woke Said something about women there. I don't know anyway. So i was room for conor mcgregor. Plus i'm an old guy you know so i wanna see the older guy win. I'd like us emporia and figure this kid's got his whole career ahead of him. And then i realized oh fuck. He's thirty two also. It's kind of weird. So so then i bet with my wife i just i'll tell you right now. If you wanna fuck in sports system. I used to be able to call games for. I had kids. I could call. I just can't watch enough now. And i can't pick a i haven't i haven't picked up fucking the mush in bronx tale. I haven't picked a fucking winners i. I don't. I don't know when just right left. So i bet conor mcgregor. She bread dusted pori. And my wife hilarious when she watches the ufc. She is out when it starts getting signing. She gets out of her seat. And it's fucking walking around the room screaming at the tv like she fucking loses it. She's like nays knees elbows. Yes yes she just fucking she fucking goes crazy so we were in public places. She was doing that people laughing. It's just funny to see a woman do that if i do it. I'm just allow s. o. But she does. It's just like jesus christ sleep with one. Eye open their freckles. So anyway just sucked away. The fight ended the head end on like injury. I was kind of hoping. I wanted to see that second round to see what would have happened. Everybody seems like know what was going to happen. Whatever but all khanna was coming back or know. Dustin wood knocked him out. We don't know so actually felt bad for when he was sitting there. I know he's yellen all kinds of fucked up shit at dustin but it was just like you know what that's like to bitches is like how i can be a comedian until i fucking keel over with these guys have a window and it must feel as great to them to do what they do is it does for what i do and i can't imagine if my whole fucking stand up. Career was over thirty two now. What the fuck. I'm gonna do so. I felt like it was a little bit nad. Plus i think he was still trying to sell sell like the next fight. But she says christ. Your wife is in my. Tm's jay's at dustin said he was grabbing my gloves. he's a dirt bag. I mean that's the first time. I felt like i saw like because they usually say all kinds of crazy shit and then afterwards. They're so nice. That's the only time. I can remember where it sounded like prefight hype now either. The two of them are the greatest. You know promoters ever but I like people going. He went too far. You don't say things about his wife it's fucking talking about. They say all kinds of crazy like you know. He said he was going to murder me. We didn't say it was going to eat your children. He didn't say he was gonna fuck you until you love me. You know there's a lot much crazy. Shit has been set the nat we sell in the fight. A cell in the fight and he's conor mcgregor and if you fight you make up my fucking record. Crapped out on me to charge. What the hell was they talking about. Had to sit here and watch fucking i. Don't what the fuck. I was watching grizzly bears murderer and other animals. Those dumb fucks. I was talking about. How come barest you guys like. What the fuck we talk about now. Sorry like a half hour went by in my life. I just don't understand why bears don't know how to kill something quickly. Inefficiently fucking morons. This fucking just clampdown. They clamped down on the back.

"I can't even begin to tell you how many people jumped into my dm's after that pick and they're like that is a bridge too far. Mike why would you throw them in there with andrea. Feely that quickly. So i'm i'm just gonna go ahead and not do that this time. Gonna throw him in there with andrea feely and said i'm gonna i'm gonna shoot them up even higher ak i'm ready to give iliad pouria a tough fifteen fighter and i want to see him in there with somebody that can do it. All a guy who's big for the way class powerful technical can strike can wrestle and grapple and it just be a really interesting fight. I'm all in onto porsche. Shane burgos aka. That is the fight. That's what i wanna see. I know burgos had a tough stoppage loss to edson barboza. Things got a little hairy. But you know. I talked to him not long after that he was cleared to compete pretty much so i think we will see shane. Burgos by the end of the year. And i think that is the fi- we should do. In december final pay per view of the year either feature pre limb main card. Opener burgos versus. Hello hello mike mike. Sorry i got my. I got my. I think my headphones are back. I caught the last bit of that. You said to perea. So you're not rebooking the to hall fight that didn't happen you just want to move on and just give up shane burgers instead. Yes you heard. That's obviously watched something different than i did. So you obviously that listen. That makes sense to pray. Again is a great prospect. I never thought the ryan hall matchup made a lot of sense in the first place that you're right maybe just maybe we just don't book that one It just you know. We'll just have to live without being lost fight one that's never happened and i love the Shane burgers matchup. Could call my good call. Okay support for this. Podcast comes from invent together. According to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation in innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple..

"I don't have much more of an explanation. Ak that's just what's going to happen. Do you agree with me. I can't even complain about it. Because if you're if you're it is still the most lucrative bite you can make. It should be the charles all the verified of course of course it should be poor brazil. Lavera if we're just talking about sport of it. The sport of the sporting aspect mike. It should be able to deliver. The i think the best fight you can make at one hundred fifty five pounds right now. It's just an awesome match i will. I don't want this matchup that they miss out on. I don't. I don't want this to bill. Could become hubby ferguson. Thing where and again hard to blame the afc in the metric that they booked it multiple times and it just fell through. But i think if you have a chance to book now you just can't risk anything bad happen to in the future so should it fall through. Obviously then you have mcgregor rating the wings to fight other guy but depending on the nature of the injury. Of course. But i just i don't want it i don't wanna see. I did not enjoy the hype leading up to it i agree. It's an awesome match up where in and mcgregor. It's an awesome matchup anytime there in there. So it's hard to arrogance that again if he wants the money. He said it himself after he didn't like a lot of trash. That mcgregor was talking after. So there's still personal aspect it's not just about the money the it is but you can also sell the personal aspect of it. It's just it's just escalated so much. It's become so deeply personal that it can certainly happen but cost. I don't want it. I do not want that. Next for mcgregor reporter i want. I want rob how this on us. I would like to see that fight. It's crazy that connor loses and it was an unfortunate ending. But it was a clear like i know. I think two of the judges. Gay ten eight round emma first round. It's amazing that even after getting ten aided in the one round of the fight you have more options than you had heading into it like you. Still have the nate fight. That's always there now at this point fight. That's always there. You could do the fight if you want. You can still do mas at all. You could still do a million different things and like it's fine. Like connor still has plenty of options in very lucrative options. Mike can i be unprofessional for a moment. You sure can't. We have introduced ache as unprofessional minute. We're just you know it's it's it's we don't make as a permanent segment. Just give me a minute. Starting now mcgregor all his post by talking. What a petulant ass. What a petulant ass. I mean it just like. I said i mean when i say i hope he gets home safely to his family or and all that and i hope You know it says this isn't a you know an injury that has to has to deleterious effect on his career. But i just i didn't like the stuff you're saying up to it. I had a feeling No matter what happens we warrants going to get that sort of post fight. You know because we gregor generally immediately after the fight is pretty cordial with most of his opponent. The you know all the bad stuff comes out later. This time i was like no matter what happens. It's gonna be bad. And then when he got injured i understand. He's frustrated in the moment. Blood is running. Joe rogan sticking a microphone in his face So you know a emotions are high but man you got to have a little more you got to have a little more compulsion that i felt like we saw the real man there. We saw not someone selling a fight or future fight. Someone who really is just a bad dude And was saying stuff about against still saying stuff about as wife and this wrestlemania has gone way too long. But i just all this nastiness left a really bitter taste in my mouth and i. I don't wanna see them again. Even though i think you're it's It's probably option one on the ucla uc matchmaker schedule right now. Yeah i mean let's let me just be clear for those listening who want to take a shot. Poor as next fight is all there. Because i think we're not gonna see connor fight again this year if we do it'll be a miracle and if he does fight again this year he won't be against us emporia but we have to just sort of assume just the way his the bottom of his leg looked in that moment which is nasty and by the way i blame my older brother bob who literally every time. He's ordered a ufc. Pay per view. Or i've washy of paper you with them a leg snaps every single one. Like it's under his undefeated. He texted me last night. It was like i cannot believe another leg snapped. Every pay per view actually goes out and buys something like that happens. It's just it's just crazy. So yeah i'm with you i i blame mcgregor for sure. You are responsible for your own actions but i blame the ufc just as much. Why even interview him in that moment. Come on now like i. I understand everything like you. Got enough sizzle and spice from emporia. You didn't need interview. Mcgregor get his ass out of the cage and bring him to the hospital. Let's just enough. We don't need a post fight interview in that moment. Connor will go on social media and say everything he has to say did not need to hear from connor in that moment. But that's just my opinion. We got what we got. There's an ugly moment now. We a promo for the next. You know the. Us is going to take that entire promo and build the fourth fight with what connor said in that octagon. It's crazy speaking of social media. My he actually did to post a few hours ago. You need it was like you. Yeah simply an image of him on the stretcher. Outraged looking looking very upset. And saying you need people like me jolie. Pouria is the mvp of the night. Though by the way was flipping him off or whoever took the screen shot and put it on social media. Social is just on its undefeated unbeatable. I know it's i'm michael. Keyes twitter account. I think it's everywhere but you guys haven't seen it in one place. You went definitely find it. Michael cases twitter account. He definitely has a put the screen out there and called her thug wife so good. So that's the main event..

"Podcast. Thank you guys for sticking around on this podcast or get into here as we're just got done talking about the euro twenty twenty final on between england italy in how both teams will approaches game. What the key. Matchups are for this game and strategies for both teams Than before that we talked about mcgregor vers pouria and their third fight and talked about how the first five one second fight went and how mcgregor's fights went in between the first and second fight and then it was the first segment today. I talked about no sons going up to the nba finals when a game to when eighteen to one zero eight so with that let's get into the final segment. Today's podcast since you know. We talked about all that stuff might as well get into predictions now So was this. Let's start with the euro twenty twenty cup final so with the euro twenty twenty cup final. Like i said you have england versus italy Harry kane The best player for england going against to premier And legendary centreback duos and shouldn't leany in ghanouchi so with this and my prediction of this game is that i think that england will and i think that england just has a low bit too much firepower to go against this italy team Italy you know they like. I said i dare them to play aggressive and You know they played like this the whole year so i'll be surprised if they come out and they don't play aggressive. Don't come out with a very hard press. But with us i think england will Recognize that I think they'll try to work around the present try to Find hurricane obviously an open field to try to Create opportunities for rehim sterling sokha sancho. Marcus rochford etcetera. So that's my producer for on the are twenty twenty final I hope. I hope. I pray that this game will go into extra-time as it's extra time Is something that our wanted said civic spoiled but at the end of day you get what you want but with this I just think. England will When this is not only based off of that but this to see The teams they played against san Defeat in this final Some interesting to look at Obviously they beat Germany first to know in the on the ukraine for no and then to get to the final They played against denmark and one that to one but What's that into look at Woo hoo england has played here only in the Quarterfinals semifinals the cetera but group stages as well They be cratia one now They be our the tie with. Scotland's zero zero The czech republic one. Now like i said it'd be germany and whatnot but attend today. I think harry canes show why he's a great player and I just have england winning. This i i just don't see for some reason i just don't see italy Keeping with their press. I think fatigue will fall in a little Early into or not early but low later into the match but we'll see I if i santa get corrected than is standard corrected. But i think england's going to win this i think cain sterling socket sancho radford etc are going to have huge games so Without in the next one next mission is going to be argentina versus brazil so with argentina. brazil brazil We'll see if Massey's able to come away With the copa america. Title or name. Our will At the end of the day I think that I think that You know argentino when this is so can get this under his legacy under his belt etc What brazil though you know. Brazil being one those countries known for soccer on one the countries for soccer etc but At the end of the day you know Massey's messy though. He's one degrees players when great soccer players athletes to ever stepped foot on grass. Whatever but with this and at You know the past match ups for these teams argentina. Won the last matchup in twenty nineteen one no against brazil in the match before that Was again at twenty. Nineteen brazil won that to know With the third match up the and twenty eighteen brazil won that one now but the fourth trip Argentina one one no and then in twenty sixteen in the fifa world cup qualifier. Brazil won that three to nil Three of those five games Die said were international. Friendliest only one. That wasn't international. Friendly was brazil. Won two to nil in the second game of twenty nineteen or the first game twenty. Nineteen tuesday In copa america. So with this. We'll see if history repeats itself with brazil and with his i mean obviously argentina happy messy surger grayer Grow argentina But at the end. I think that are gonna come away with this like i said with just messy. His greatness speaks for itself. And with that. I just think that Argentina's has come a long way to this europe or excuse me Cup of america Tournament last game They won one one or they excuse me they won against Columbia n. penalties Game after that they beat ecuador. three now The be bolivia four to one The beat paraguay. one known the beat uruguay one. No so with that in the perdition. So far is that. I have an a your twenty twenty cup. I have england that and then in the copa america final. I have argentina.

"Down giving the sign that i need a minute. there's nothing wrong with that either. I thought it was fun to watch. I like seeing training videos. I didn't get a big takeaway. I didn't think the dustin through hands harder than he should thrown them that he showed us a set of i just saw two sparring and one guy got clipped and he sat down and said gimme break my official prediction for mcgregor versus poor. A part three. I'm taking but i want to break this fight down. Because i mean look in many ways you have a toss up right in the betty lines are even showing that in the more and more people that i talked to more and more people i hear from you might be able to relate to. This are very excited for this fight but not bullish one way or the other. I never hear anybody saying poor as going to stop him or all connors going to stop them. I never hear that. I think that we all understand. We're gonna have a back and forth battle and if we've watched these guys compete twice. We seen that they can both get the victory. I realized that. I'm stating the obvious. I realized that. But you can go back. You can look at the intimidation that was on dustin porges face the first time he stepped into a huge high profile fight. That opponent could have been anybody. Dustin was not going to win that night. He was a deer in the headlights. Right the lights were just too bright now. Much more mature dustin poor. That's headlining shows and fighting for championships. All of a sudden stepping back in with connor. It removed that fear. And that's really what you saw that that we really was the big difference with pouria. He did it have that same. Fear had a different belief. He understood the spot. There was no crowd so no matter. How much pressure. How high a fight appears to be. It feels smaller to the athletes. He had a good performance by dust. And now i'm talking about part two of course but we can also identify what was wrong with connor which was the removal from competition for a meaningful period of time. He had one fight with cowboy ceremony before that fight it like five hundred days since he had fought another three hundred sixty five days plus copayment look. It was a tough spot. That was the worst connor. I've ever seen as the worst connor. You're going to see. And i don't think any of us make believe that's the connor that's going to show up. You're going to have a much superior conor mcgregor in this fight. That's relevant because if any of you thought that was a close fight and you don't have an argument to make as to what dustin is going to do to be even better and we know for sure a better. Connor is going to show up just based on logic just because we acknowledge that ring. Rust is real. Do you see the problem. I didn't see a close fight there. I saw a fight that was over. Within the first three minutes conor mcgregor was different and had changed and realize he was in a harder contest than he was expecting to be in within three minutes of the very first round and now it's just a matter. How do i get out of here. How the hell do i get out of this. One right real thing that goes through a fighters minor going through cotter's mind. He finally found the answer about seven and a half minutes in. I only bring that to you because that's not going to happen again. That is extremely unlikely. Now if you saw a back and forth battle if you thought. This was tit for tat and some people have some people have told me. Go back and watch us this thing. This thing was a dogfight. One parade took it down. Connor scooter defense and got right back up to his feet. That's fiction that didn't happen. But if you think that your eyes saw something different and this is a very close back and forth and you have. The added element of knowing that. Connor is going to be superior. It's going to be a superior connor. You might wanna take mcgregor in this right. It's not as though mcgregor done. Have a way to go. He does mcgregor. Doesn't just have a left hand to be jump with. He's doing very good work in the clinch. As of late he showed that with cowboy aronie some of the shoulder strikes he broke cowboys nozomi. Just for example. Connor has more ways that he can win. Connor plans for this to be a long drawn out evening. That is likely to go twenty five minutes. He will reduce his power. He won't look for the finnish right. The old mike tyson expression very true. If you look for the knockout you will lose the decision. But if connor makes his mind ahead of time and all. I have to go. On as a reference point is connor versus nate diaz part two. I'm taking that corner and that strategy and that outlook to the contest that he knew this is going to take some time. I'm not gonna put this guy down. He took my power before. Kara might also know that with dustin because dustin did take his power in the second fight so of connor changes and looks for a strategy. That is much longer and much more drawn out and you believe it was a competitive second fight because many of you do many of you when you wash. I thought well this was really back and forth. I saw something different. I did not see competitive. I saw conor mcgregor who three minutes and realize this is going to be my night talking as an athlete. Right as a guy. That's done it. I just know what that looks like. So.

"God sends us more people. Have that. And i don't know what the answer is but we're seeing it more than we used to five ten years ago. So dr lewis. I know you mentioned different products. That help could help things up. The problem is is that some of us have really good a really good ability to detoxify. And then there's some people that don't have a very good ability to detoxify. How would you know what products belonged to. What people are what they should take. Well you know. I personally like to throw in a lot of different things in hit it from different aspects. You know the so-called shotgun approach one of the favorite ones like just for the kidneys but it also has great effects in detoxification. Otherwise is is the kidney essentials in sometimes put people on that even though their kidney numbers look good Bennett has court accepts in court.

"Zombie. Unanimous decision right on right on getting I think it's gonna be a technical fight. It's going to go all three round. I think any gay beats korean zombie just because he has such good boxing. He beats them the same way. He beat barboza methodically. Picking him apart with the jab and then countering with the right cross and going into the body just completely out. boxing the korean zombie for fifteen minutes I have a game winning by unanimous decision over the korean zombie. All right all right. I gotta i gotta say it's the same. Yeah pretty similar. I just i just think that like yeah eg- eg- will definitely just pick them apart like that. That's it's zombies. Seen a lot of wars and these lost to a lot of good people yup saying that that just been like man that kind of punishment that he's that he's taken you. You can't take that much punishment in your career. You know what i'm saying. Like i just i just don't think he has it anymore and like he's been in most of the time where he's lost is been in that in that manner. You know what i'm saying. So i just don't think he's going to be. Zombies got a lot of miles on man. Yeah yeah yeah so. I i agree by all right right We're into the last three five announces that were made earlier this week. And the first and these are firemen so fucking good. Let's start by talking. Connor and dozen part three. Did we need this. No should they have made a different fight. Yes should be for the title right now. Yes but hey man on the line title can wait. Titles come in no matter what so. I can see why dustin is going for this you know. Why not have a trilogy match with connor. Will you know no matter what you're going to get a towel afterwards. And you're going to pick up a fatter payday this way. Then you would fighting for the bill so kudos to poor gate for pushing this might in getting it I'm interested i. I really don't know what's going to happen. Man i mean. I guess it's really the baldy connor score is the same connor gonna show up from last night. Who was no. There were rumors going around that. He thought he wouldn't fight. Manny cow so he was strictly train. Boxing I don't know it's connor. In the fighting wars con- the game or is connor trying to get back into boxing and get a big bigger eighty or is connor. Just worried about selling whiskey and making hand over fist. Money and not taking punches anymore If the old connor shows up checking kicks lightning vast punch just I i think he can beat dustin man he can easily hands down. Beat the sheet out a dustin. Maybe not like he did when he was a youngster but he can snipe out dustin he can do the same shit dustin. Did this last fight in this next upcoming rematch is that what's going to happen though. No i don't think so. I don't think that connor is going to be able to catch back up to that. Same level that doesn't have been at and dust and have been maintaining because doesn't have and take in no time off doesn't have gone from from the cubby fight to the connor fight to anyone who who he wants to tangle with and he'd be coming out on top every time he's figured out what he's good at and what he's not good at and he waited any more time. There ain't no kaviv out there to stop dustin so connors just going to stand with with dustin and bay and whoever doesn't get hit by a big shot is going to win that match I don't know if doesn't is gonna stand in front of corner swing for the benches you know because he kinda faded connor last night and trick them into thinking that what he was going to do and then started with those and before you knew it it was too much and connor couldn't even stand anymore. Yup i i don't know it's hard for me to count dustin out embedded them I don't see doesn't finishing conner. This time i think cars are going to check those kicks. Connors implement different strategy. But i don't think then she is at the level that he used to be or can match the intensity or level. That doesn't that doesn't pull out a decision. I think it's going to be a good ass by their bulk. Gonna come swinging trying to kill each other But i see or you coming out on top again. What do you think yeah man. I agree with a lot where you said you know what i'm saying like i every time i see conner's name come up for a car. I'm like do a really gonna watch this. You know what i'm saying. Like man and it sucks is i key i do. I wanna watch it but at the same time. It's like like a he. What's he done recently. Man like what will like you said man like what's his focus like it. Just it just feels like he is making payday. And it's just it's not gonna be as an entertaining fight as i wanted to be as it once. Was you know what i'm saying. And like he's he's been losing streak. Like i just don't see him. Winning this fight. I think is going to be more boring. Fight than we saw the last time And for the same reasons that you just mentioned I don't think they're going to try to kill each other. I think is going to be a lot more technical than it was. But i still think that That dustin gonna take it and he'll end up doing going the distance So yeah i just i don't. I'm not really too excited to see it. I'll still watch it. But yeah i'm not like height hyped to watch his fight really So right on all right eddie. What you think. I got i. I'm hoping to see the connor of old the connor that that took out eddie alvarez like a guy in his prime hopefully he learned how to check the kicks and Connor look good in the first round in the second fight he was using chris boxing he was laughing at will but those calf kicks the ones that he just went and check for shit completely threw off his game and He was thinking more about the calf kicks and he was about a orients boxing I noticed I wonder if If pouria will use more wrestling because he landed a takedown in the first by almost. We've been less than a minute of the second fight. No sneaky did poorly fall in love with his boxing. As you gonna try to outbox connor again and not mix it up with the take downs icy that happened way too often. I see pori a chasing another knockout and Connor taking advantage of that. I i see connor checking the kicks.
South Africa graft inquiry exposes ANC divisions
"Today. We're looking at South Africa and its battle against corruption which took a dramatic turn this week with former president Jacob Zuma a cool to testify before commission of inquiry joining me on the line from Johannesburg is correspondent jobs of cultural and here in the studio Africa editor David Pilling David Festival. Could you give us the background. This inquiry is into this idea of state capture. The role of some businessmen called Gupta's. How's it come to this will for a long time? There's been this notion of state capture which is really South African phrase or it's become a kind of Motif in South Africa really a term that denotes mass corruption the hollowing out of some some of South Africa's most important institutions in the idea that they've been kind of sold to the highest bidder including the family mentioned the Gupta's who are very close to Jacob Zuma when he was president this in the sense of the moment that everyone's been waiting for this has been ongoing testimony from from various people who are involved her accused or who have evidence but this is really the man who is said to be at the sense of the Fulcrum the man who innocence is alleged to have sold the presidency and really sent South Africa which was already having many difficulties really kind of sense it on a very difficult path of low growth corruption loss of faith in the A._N._C.. An government and therefore a lot hangs on this inquiry doesn't it I mean it's not just just about making sure that justice was dumb to some extent the hopes of President Obama poser to correct the course of South Africa to some extent today hang on this inquiry working out to some extent. Yes I mean I think there are two things I mean one. Is this idea that the people who were involved should be punished. Jacob Zuma has been doging what some people would say as justice what he would say as persecution for moving a decade those who think that Zimmer is guilty those who think that he is at the center of something that is corroded the whole South African dream think that unless he somehow punished then we won't be able to move on then there's also cost the kind of evidence that is presented the evidence that is needed to root out corruption from within the A._N._C. and it goes very deep according to most accounts and evidence. That's really needed for Sir. I'm opposed to get a grip on the party and turn it in the direction that he has claimed he wants to turn it into in his electioneering so Joseph this week the commissioner of inquiry weaker very important state with presence Zuma Call to testify how did that go started with classic Jacob Zuma Very Rivera performance as he opened his testimony and gave his side of the story and he said free. Anything's Fussy his enemies in the African National Congress auspice they are saying all of these things about the <unk> because foreign spy agencies which he didn't name but were to be the C._I._A.. Enough is instructed students <unk> and finish off. He said people trying to kill him. People have sent suicide bombers <unk> after him people trying to poison him so it's very dramatic but since then and the days the photoed he's deflated a bit as we've got into the nuts and bolts of enquiries questioning the inquiry has put to him specific allegations civilisation exits. You told them to lie about the Gupta's Minister Zet made this claim and immune response has been. I don't know I can't remember right and this conspiratorial stuff that he's used. Is there a ready audience written South Africa. Do you think many people will be listening to him and does he still have a financial support quarter. Can maybe prevent him being brought down bonus outside Africa and in most of the population. This does sound absolutely match. He's going back to allegations that date from the nineteen ninety s that the A._n._C. was infiltrated by foreign spies. Zoom himself was a former spy master in the A._N._C.. He claims to have lists of enemies. Were spies. It does sound like it comes from <unk> but there is an audience in G._N._C.. It's not big but it is exists. People do believe there is outside interference in South African and A._N._C. Politics and by that narrative that this position imposed by external forces Suma has not named but in terms of picking away at the credibility of inquiry picking away at the credibility of Roma pauses cleanup effort it works to create that kind of disinformation and David would there are people think within the N._C.. Whose face the tied up with Jacob Zuma so they're not necessarily people who believe in him? I'm sure there are in the wider population especially in KwaZulu Natal but within the A._N._C. There are people who depend on Zuma's version of events prevailing because otherwise otherwise the next nothing. That's quite important because you've got this fight within the A._N._C. and remember Ramaphosa only just won the presidency so you have this fight between these different elements and they've not been able to root out by any means all the the people who were pretty much involved in state capture. Some of them still hold high office if you look at the A._N._C. Network throughout the provinces of South Africa the kind of riddled with people who somehow benefited from a lot of what was going on and so there's a lot of steak and they're able to fight back to some extent on them. They've been able to chuck allegations the Finance Minister Probably Gordon and so on well. That's exactly right. I mean you have this kind of war of words and his war of parallel realities. It's important to note that there is very clear documentation mutation the backs up a lot of these allegations even though some of the investigative services were themselves compromise for example the protects the general to Lee Metal Seller came out with a report with names dates places the Financial Times itself reported reported a story where the then finance minister was offered a bag of money to take over the finance ministry and do various things that would have been off benefit to people connected to this sort of state capture network so I mean there's quite a few smoking guns there. But there's also the possibility especially I think in the world that we live in today of a counterfactual narrative that can be built up and if people arrested in that narrative than it's easy to believe it if their fortunes if their jobs depend on it then of course they'll believe John Beckett right and Joseph how is in broader terms the Ramaphosa effort to write South Africa to put it back on the right track. How's it going eighteen months ago? I think people would have been talking about remote Pouria about this sense that just a mere fact of having someone else in the presidency would unleash foreign investment and bring back South African companies to invest her as well that is not going well the economy's gutting with recession and they're very bad numbers at the beginning of this year. It's GonNa take a long time just because of the extent of the role just to take one example Eskan depowered monopoly which generates navy one of the country's electricity has just been for band patch of quite severe blackouts which obviously done the economy no favours as Davis had that is a smoking gun. One of the biggest intensive corruption under Zuma's rule but Ramaphosa team has been very very slow hello to restructure and s gone back honor bell fitting so that sense of urgency that was there a year and a half ago or Zuma was removed from power than dissipating and is that because the President Ramaphosa of the obstacles faces are larger than he imagined I mean how bad was the situation. He inherited actually we can go back to something. A former minister said at the inquiry about state capture itself which is don't over zoom denies denies it during make it all about Jacob Zuma. This was a much bigger network. The one president that are much more alleged perpetrators than the Gupta's so to route that out of the A._N._C. will be a bigot. It doesn't involve solve the tax collection agency the National Prosecutor even the public protect to David mentions had four against Corruption Zuma Bat has allegedly been captured by the quote unquote fightback so so it's not like things going on one way towards reform. It's a real conducting institutional fight so yes. It's not what about Jacob Zuma legacy so let's just finish by looking at the future both of the A._N._C. itself twelve and of South Africa. David background is that it's known about a battle within the end see the N._C.. The Positive Liberation the Party of Mandela has been losing popularity in their arrivals. Do you think this is an away a last chance for the Nancy and if they fail walk replaces them I think in says it is a less chance I mean you've seen its popularity slide. I think they won't fifty seven percent in this election fifty seven fifty eight and it would have been much lower had not been for the remedy fauria affect that Joseph referred to there is disillusion in the A._n._C. as a kind of typical liberation party which of course it never was seen as it was seen as this great transformer of the Rainbow Nation but it's unfortunately in many people's is gone on the way of other post-independence liberation movements got a monopoly on power and therefore abused its power. The one thing you're saying is that the South African economy which had been growing before Jacob Zuma five and six percents a year at least giving. Some room to do some of the social changes that the A._N._C. has promised to do an is the legacy of apartheid that does need to be addressed but with no growth with recession. There's just nothing to play with and in the end I think unless unless the A._N._C. can sought out its internal divisions standouts corruption at least to a certain extent and get the economy moving again then we will proceed at one pacer another in one direction that will be that the A._N._C.'s majority will old slipped below fifty percents. We'll move into coalition government. I didn't think we'RE GONNA lose the A._N._C. and power for quite a long time but you can see the A._N._C.'s total monopoly on power fading and in some people's eyes that would be no bad thing but some of the political forces I mean there are liberal democratic forces but they're also more left wing nationalist forces led by me and someone who might profit they're both you know there's a party to the right of the A._N._C. which believes in much more free market liberal economy of vessel but might be recognizable say in Europe but there's also a policy that basically says that the Liberation Movement in one thousand nine hundred four has been betrayed that is rallying around questions like nationalization of land or expropriation of land or that compensation because the the truth of South Africa the big truth that's looking behind all of this is that the disparity of income between the largely white population but with now black middle classes prospered on the one side and then a great divide with the rest of the black population that has really been left behind in his almost as far behind as it was under apartheid. That's the background and that's the social pressure that is behind a lot of this in which the A._N._C. in internal struggles in its moral corrosion is really unable to address and Joseph to finish the time I was in South Africa one did hear this phrase state capture but also some people muttering about state failure the sense that if this couldn't be turn round South Africa was really quite serious trouble and it statuses is the most advanced economy in Africa was under threat as we speak the army has been deployed in South Africa's Western Cape Aware Capetown is because of crime being so bad in townships around South Africa's second city not so as indicates for failure buses capture. I think that's a fad point to make state. Capture focused on major state companies focused on the Finance Ministry the very top of the state intensive allegedly the diverting resources to people Gupta's but from below rivers issues Davis has just been talking about basic service to the water at Trinity. I mentioned Eskom. Thurs indicates is old flagging as well. I I mean look at the end of the day of roughly infrastructure is miles edge of many countries on the continent on remains sir but this sense of urgency that was eighteen months ago about undoing nor anything capture but also bringing economic stagnation to an end Indorama poser that message has lost a bit amid the continued inflicting in the A._N._C. so that risk of failure stood
