"That in also sewn barris. What an idiot i mean. It is the age when i got a w. it's nba draft week. Maybe i was distracted. I don't know we we just the clouds in my brain wadded idiot anyways spencer. What do you think did did did you watch it did you. Did you read about it. Did you read about zion williamson getting knocked out like what. I hope hyper links. To actual like ziyad information elsewhere on on us be nation like it just goes to his stats page and everything. That would be terrific. I didn't watch it live. I i obviously saw highlights because i exist on twitter like everybody else. I agree with that. You can't really call it a rematch. Because some of the rules are all the rules are different the way the vans at one. The first time is not even on the table anymore. I was impressed. I mean i was one of those people that thought rachel austin bitches never really been much of much of a boxer. Yeah she throws hands a little bit but her thing is her best area in mixed martial arts has always been grappling in to go out there and peace up page vandamme from everything. I saw everybody. Everybody was convinced outside of page in her corner that this was a clear. Victory for rachel ostrich. I always enjoy seeing people store motive cages and rings. And what have you when they lose and they're just flabbergasted. It is one of my favorite things on any fight night to just predict seeing and then see the person that is just completely aghast. That things didn't go their way on the scorecards when there's nothing that should lead them to believe that it's gonna go their way and so for me this is it's weird the pages. Oh in two now just because such a big deal was made it. She's kind of this person that they wanted to build things around but the beauty of this fight is whoever won you could still go forward with. And so now they have. Rachel awesome bitch. I know she's only one. I know i know as jed said. We're not talking about like world championship. Caliber boxers here. But we're talking about de kfc. And i don't think we're looking for world championship caliber. Boxers were looking for people that can be on the main event or the main card of their next show or the show after that and drawing. Some eyeballs and rachel hostages vich. Is that person whether we like it or not whether it's for her skills in the ring or not she is one of those people and she is gonna fight britain heart or bec rawlings. Now that beck is back in the mix and people are going to tune in the same way. They tuned into this. So you you sort of alluded to its page made big waves signing a gap. Fc multi multimillion dollar deal. They emptied the checkbook for now owen to. She's lost to fight spot. I mean she didn't get run over in either of these fights didn't get stopped in any of these fights. You didn't get knocked out. She lost to at least somewhat competitive fights and she did show improvements between the loss to britain heart in las racial watches ostrich. And i feel like there's potential there. Because the i five with bernhardt we saw page van. Zandt the fighter trying to be a bare knuckle fighter and then in this fight. We saw page fully. Go all in on boxing. Oh we just need if she can find that middle ground between the two. I think she could find some success. Oh up curious like where she goes from here like do you think this became. Afc whatever you you know page. We've seen her throughout her. Ufc ron do. You think she sticks around gives us another go or do you feel like she moves on from the bareknuckle realm. I mean to me. Where else does she go like. This is one of those. You mentioned earlier that nba draft night. It's draft week. This kind of feels like the ben. Simmons thing of your stock has never been kind to lower like it was a big deal when you exited the afc and we're free agent. Everybody wanted to see where you were going to go because it's hot property..

"Why don't you engage equity. I'm sorry mark go ahead. You'll be critical a jake paul. When all it is celebrity. Boxing shit started. I saw that she was actually against. It ain't a wake up to the. I know jake paul assyria. He's taking his training very seriously. Yeah sopa me. I wanna root for her because she from my city. I wanna root for esol career. I wanna root for her. But it's like melissa said that these days there's certain things you cannot ignore you like the truth is dead dog. How is fighting mcardle. Bigger than taylor see gave another software layer song. Jake paul fans those boxing fans though. So how was this a big fight that war. Yeah like for real. That's why i call her. you know. Fake deal sit up no late. I won't care that you from bushwick. 'cause where i'm from if we fuck you fuck which you but if we don't like don't come up block. You can't sit on the stoop you can't hang out. You just say you from brooklyn. Don't claim bushwick. Liz melissa brooklyn and texas rep so and to lead into my next question. I just want people to understand a little bit more about melissa. She is a nine time national champion with golden glove winds in the state of new york and texas but it's not just her amateur record which was eighty nine twenty two to speak of. Y'all also have fights in the professional and amateur emanate and not to mention a very accomplish. Resilient ju jitsu practitioner I say all that to see this. We've seen Women in mma. Boxing take a shift towards bare. Knuckle fighting I bring it up because it is an option. It's money it's real money. it's a tangible. What are your thoughts about competing in something like that Is is there room to add that to the mix of boxing enemy. That you already do. Y'all i'm gonna tell you right now. Like i get an offense to do bareknuckle boxing. I'ma be like the longest reigning champion. They give me a championship. Fight out the gate. Like i don't need a training camp. I will back to the block like robotic like excites me. Because i'm like you're not going in there and boxing i'm not keeping its height. I'm gonna win. And i'm calling on you like on the street and bed like i'm going straight savaging. No tactic eight note. Taking my time annual. Now when you get on that line he says fight. You better not blink. 'cause i'm coming back. I would love the opportunity. So i know that i still need to build myself as far as like my fan base following because bare knuckle is kind of different. It's not that it's just a popularity contest. But they're smart in how they put their women on cards where it's actually going to be competitive and they're going to fill seats. Those old fiddle strandings. Did you see on page van. Zandt versus rachel ostrich. And what did you think about it. I thought it was An evenly matched fight. I thought it was great. Y'know i think. Rachel has some like beach roles because i didn't expect it a step to her and i think it's that mentality of i'm used to doing and then maye where i have to worry about being taken down submitted but now i'm just fighting where i can just steps you. So she's used to being aggressive but not having to worry about all these other things as she went out there and shoes like screw it. I'm shallow and she looked really good last question. I got for you So shannon she don't like shannon ain't gonna fight nobody that's the best again because like you fighting jamie metro nothing against any mitchell god blessed but it's not hard to see why you chose What about luna what about The other champions at the way what about a rematch with roma is any of that. Being talked ball worked on emails. Faxes any of that materializing. Well the last thing. I was told because as you know i shared with everyone. I was open about my relationship with my promoter. So i'm in the process of getting up that contract. But he's prolonging it for as long as he can because he's hoping i'll change my mind because he has a fight for me supposedly in october and they're hoping that they can make a match against the door slim but i hold what i'm told with a grain of salt at this point because i had been given so many different game plants that i don't know what direction i'm going in anymore so i know that i'm not fighting unless it's world titlefight so i just recently signed with first round management and i know that once we get the legal side of things squared away. They're going to be able to really focus on my boxing. And i'll be able to get those world title fights because I'm out the loop right now. If i'm just being honest but i'm staying ready I'm maintaining so that. If i do get opportunity and i get a call. Some context at foreign they deal with the promoter get signed off to fight on. We'll make it happen but You won't see me representing signature. Punch boxing or being on any of their cards so anything seem be posted about me fighting on. I'm not fighting on that card. So let let let me ask you though With you know. The current situation. Kind of in flux i guess a little bit if you wanna call it that Would you be willing to if you found yourself in a situation to come on short notice or jump into a situation. Would you do that. I mean are you trying to get in where you fit in and try to get that world the world titles under your belt because one thing about me is. I'm not naive. I at least i don't think i am. I see things for what they are. So i'm not in a position where i can call out the top holes on until they won't give me the opportunity because i've been in the game less than a year but i also place myself in a position where i have the right to say. I deserve a world title. I've now for current world champion. In one i have fought for regional title and one. I've also four. You know for the i b o i one i'm now one of the highest ranked women at bantamweight. So i deserve a shot when it comes to fighting luna. It's so frustrating. Because she had a tune up fight. I don't believe as a world champion. You should be able to have tune-ups sites but put myself in the position. That when i see they had these dates and i'm not i'm saying ready because i i don't mind being that last minute off because i know things will turn around once i get one of those four votes i got i got. I got an idea for the essay. I won't be there where you get beat up and watch the phone ring. Indiana then like a fake video. Get your neighbor. Put boxing gloves on your. Don't throw them and they'll put it out exactly today. They wanna we wanna use melissa. Desperate title fight in november will call real quick. Yes that'll you know. What problem is also that i have. Also this promoter who will release my fight power people supposed to get excited glumness. Pay per view it you can't even share highlights and you can't even post rounds to show how exciting i am. How would connect with me into what kind of fighter i am. I i was on the card feature. And i not even allowed a copy of my fight. I'm just baffled by this. Because i'm trying to find that missing connection to help grow my audience but when you don't have the media when you don't have the content i'm not just in a start posting random stuff you know for the cloud it has to make sense so hopefully with more fights..

"First eubanks anthony district chango are safe versus tony. Gravely mickey gaulish. Dwight grant ema vice versa. John young park allen versus muniz. Janas davey grants barbara lee piper versus jimmy rivera and bonus aspen lad versus arrhenius. Donna by jimmy rivera. Damn that's a bit. That's that's a really big win for pie. That he's like the match. You all the top ten guys. I think jimmy in the top ten still early. I believe eleven twelve at least out saying our in our rankings. But yeah wow. That's a big one. Yeah evan rodriguez elkins versus charles. Rosa fun fight would be awesome grappling showcase phillips versus natividad janas versus garbrandt. Screw it why. Not nocco king. Adrian janas versus the guy who will work through our down. I understand way but man. This is settled tau Brennan on versus chris wideman. I think we're i think we're too soon to be thrown out. Kris widened fight ideas. I'm doing the year no chris watch. Please go on mcgregor. None of that guys come on now. So jeff neal and jeff neal kevin holland chris wiedeman. Yeah or on the banned list right. Now we're not even chris widening maybe even t- dilshad. We'll see as soon as he might get an mri or something this This weekend was who knows in last one for him. Rodriguez mickey gov versus ian gerry. Make it feel saying this before this The before saturday. Saying if mickey gall wins he would be a good match for gary. So i don't know if there's some heat there something or if it just a lot of people's just in the so Maybe just let a logical matchup. People have seen a lot of mickey gall the kind of know what to expect from him. i i don't have a problem with it i actually i mean i think i know a lot of pure high on the and gary. I don't think that's a layup match for him at all. So if that's why fans are making that matchup. I think mistaken I think all could definitely beat him. But but i i understand gall has somewhat of a name and as we mentioned previously has yet to win quote unquote win the big one. So maybe they think that's an opportunity for gary. Instead alec i neil leon elkins versus douadi janas versus omar. America made off pie versus casey kenny. Win or lose. Mickey gov verses abubakar amalgamate off bar russia's joe joe caller would Robbie ryan our friend. Osce dad bloke. let's see something we haven't seen yet kyw phillips versus marlin vera. I'm okay with that. Robbie ryan agrees with the macy. Barbara college jessica. I'd grasso and roxie rematch aren't the best right now. Talia santos's another option Miranda maverick does not go backwards after that performance. He would give marina maverick. The fight not a bad idea. Mickey golfer jake. Matthews us or a veteran conduct brown would be suitable. He's not gonna fight. matt brown. Sure are banned francesco. From italy pie versus jack shore elkins versus barris janas versus louis smoke wildcards versus julian marquez. Mickey gall versus sato. What's up with. Julian marquette's where again. I got him to my in. My my master's is he. Just take chilling. He's not like injured anything right. He just chilling waiting for the right match up. Yeah i think he's Possibly targeting a november return. I can't buy anything yet. But with that if you're a fighter and you can afford to knock compete and focus on a lot of fighters say how much they love times when they were like maybe forced to be on the shelf for like six eight months and how much they improved rather than sleeping on like a one fight every three or four months cycle. So that's a marquez's doing like. If he has the time and the money to just fight on his own schedule. I highly encourage it. And i and. I think that's great. I'm not calling out julia marquez. And everything saying like oh. Why isn't this guy getting back in it. Nah marquess. you're living your life. You've got this you've got this. You have this buzz around you. After all your fights your popular no pick you. Keep doing you buddy. Keep doing you matt ravelli back in our lives. Some great fights. And i know it's going to be super obvious. But one burn allen versus the winner of sean strickland versus hall. I know adrian's versus cody. Statement is the right fight. It's right outside of the top fifteen. Think that i would be a lot of fun. Also if janas couldn't start slow with all right patrick mickey gov versus nico price i. I've seen that one no. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah i like it man. I and that's i think could win that one find. I think he could okay. So jar eubanks versus man fiero after man and knocks odor opponent in september Darren elkins versus billy q. Are say versus. O'malley he move off versus varas. Macy lost that fight so miranda mavericks the matchmaking baking. According to patrick yours going with angela is well sure Our man luke No match rigging but Thank you thank you luke. I read your message. I appreciate that What is going on here. all right. Kyle thomas coming through here mike. I'm gonna say this. And i do not care what anyone says. Corey san hagan won that fight period. Yes i'm upset now not gonna say it was a robbery but he did enough to get the nod but whatever. What do i know. And now the matchmaking We'll steve all right adrian. Versus nate maintenace darren elkins versus chas. Skelly wildcard. I can't believe that bob. Before i look at what up to and i never fought before nasty now of offers jordan beverly hills. Ninja right is wildcard pick Where's our buddy john. George corey san hagan. One that fi. That's how that's how he typed this. They will see each other again down. The road and cory will finish the job. A that's what he says until then after the. bs call core you'll have to dismantle the winner of aldo muna's or rob font fight but defiantly could see him a definitely see him getting back in there before the end of the year and the ballots will be his by this time next year and then bring now versus mitch. Abbasi and best girl fight of the weekend is a guest. The question what was it was patriots. Adverse rachel ostrich say.

But I just, you know, businesses usual, but it's been awesome. Did you go on a honeymoon? You have to put it off because of five schedules. We the put it off. He my husband actually fought two weeks after wedding. And then I got crazy busy with work and in life and stuff in the nineteenth affi- and he's again in two weeks. So I don't see us getting a real honeymoon anytime soon shorts. Oh, right before the wedding. So he was in training when you get married. So he can't enjoy the food at the wedding. No, originally, we thought he would be fighting the week before our wedding. And then so he would be you know, really celebrate and have a great time at the wedding. And then now one got cancelled, and then he took another almost like a short of site two weeks after so he didn't really get to full he or enjoy the, you know, all the flu in cake and stuff, and he was dieting that's stinks your wedding here.

It's like extremely unhealthy for me. I can just kinda feel myself like deteriorating. So especially once they took away. I think I only had Leonard to fights in the USC not very many before. What fifteen were they stopped letting us use IV's? So I tried to continue to make one fifteen without the IV. And that's really what the game changer. What I couldn't do it and we fully rehydrated to compete who's a photo taken. View after you last five really nice photo against Rachel ostrich where you know, she's faced down on the on the ground. I guess she's upset and you are kissing her on the shoulder. Those are very nice photo. Oh, yeah. I mean, I guess I, you know, in the moment, I didn't even realize I had done that.

She says Moore, she is a much more. She's more experienced but a higher skill set than rituals. Switching be fine. She find she's looking good to. Yes. And she her career go million which a lot of fights left in her as far as modeling. I, you know, I do Rachel ostrich if I'm Reebok, and I don't know what they're deal is going to be with UC move forward. But how in the world you don't do like some sort of campaign around her? Because even yes, she lost the patriots. All right. It's not the end the world MMA's different the box, and you lose your credit. Your your ranking really doesn't fly down like boxing. You Chris not over know what your stock doesn't go down. That much.

Matt she fights for living and deals with domestic violence knowing she deal with it. But she fought the highest level in the UFC months after deal a month after dealing with that very reality with that. She's on the same card. It's Greg hardy dealt with that. So I don't think your stock goes down anymore. I just the more experienced she gets you start winning fights. It's there so shout to Rachel's to it's also shot to page van that she was on show love page. It's a big win for her huge win for the my boy joy benefit has got. Done against it.

"What about hotcakes though, I want some odd case? Now, here's your host ready to jump into the thick of things Dwayne calendar. Hello and welcome to the show. Gallup's talk back because we've got the championship finals for the ASI NFC in the NFL gotta talk some college hoops as well because we had Duke takedown Virginia. Also gotta get into a little bit of the Premier League. But first, let's just start off with the absolute disaster that was the UFC debut on ESPN last night because it was a week car to begin with which was part of the reason why didn't feel like previewing it, and it lived up to be the unmitigated disaster than it was so to begin with obviously coming into this. There was a lot of talk about the fact that Greg hardy was signed to the US in the first place and not only signed, but was actually going to be the co main event. Of the evening again. This is Greg Cardi he of three actual professional MMA fight co headlining a UFC event. Granted it's not a pay per view. It's just a UFC fighting night. But at the same time, you're basically using Greg hardy to promote. UFC event for the inaugural event on ESPN. I still boggles my mind that this was actually considered a good idea by the powers that be at W. Emmy, or if it came from Dan the white himself. A Greg hardy is not experienced be. There's the whole Greg hardy a scumbag to begin with and beats on women. But hey, let's build an event around him. When you're also featuring a woman who was also a victim of actual domestic violence on the exact same card. That's not a conflict of interest at all. I mean, you know, it was comical for to even go down that way. But sure enough they got Greg hardy on the card and Greg hardy proceeds to gas himself out in the fight and gets himself disqualified for throwing Anil eagle knee. Yes. Was he in a position to win the fight eventually possibly, but the guy was so gassed that he threw the illegal knee at because he didn't realize what was going on. Because again, he was completely gassed and was just tired. So he was trying to get the guy out of the ring as soon as possible in Gallup's of de queued for three. Growing in the legal me, you know, again, just a mess because that was a fight where will be basically setting up harder to make this massive run in the UFC against tomato cans to build up his record. And then you sell a pay per view. So now he gets a loss on his record. And you still have all the negative publicity for, you know, hiring Greg hardy and promoting him to the moon and the first place, so Bravo. So as I mentioned before, you know, there was a Rachel ostrich who made her UFC return after domestic violence issue with her boyfriend at the time she lost to page fans via arm bar in a second round. I believe, but this was supposed to be the feel good story which unfortunately got completely overshadowed by the whole Greg hardy circus that was going on with the USC. But of course, the kicker of the night. Night, the one that the UC built their whole promotional ad campaign around with ESPN featured the main event bout between champion versus champion, and I'm using air quotes T J dillashaw, the bantamweight champion versus Henry Suharto. The federal champion that I'm using air quotes. Because anyone who actually watched the pseudo fight against the matriarch is might amounts. Johnson knows who the not win that bell. But besides that, you still have the fact that since that time not only did mighty mouse, not get his well deserved on Matic rematch after numerous years of the federal the federal title. The USC literally trades mighty mouse to get rid of him because they were planning on closing down the federal division..

"And I think step one before we get into the fight put into a little perspective sort of what this partnership with you. See what you expect out of the partnership you have C ESPN plus specifically. Guys. Thank you for having me on the show together. It's it's always a pleasure. This is massive, you know, for our sport for the longest time. I think the fans of the sport the fighters felt like we were overlooked like, you know, we were supporting that band that underground band. You see your your your local music hall, but never quite gets an opportunity to play at Madison Square Garden. Well, this is our quivalent of of Madison Square Garden because it's the first time in the history of the UFC that they're on ESPN live MA has never been on ESPN before. And I think for the longest time people thought it would never be on ESPN, quite frankly, it's surreal not only because I worked for his PM. But just as a fan of someone who's been watching since you have C one. It's surreal to see the fighters on different years PIN programming. It's real for me as well. So I really think that this is going to be the next chapter if you will in terms of taking the sport to the next level. I think that's what everyone wants and hopes air you've been everywhere today or the marathon, man. So we appreciate you sticking out with us. This last of the day. Maybe maybe. I think it is. But I'm happy to do it. I love I'm really enjoyed. This is a dream come true for me. So it's my pleasure. Awesome. You know, we had you on when this was announced to talk about the sort of odd partnering of a fight with Rachel ostrich vich who is a victim of domestic violence on the same cardis, Greg hardy, and you spoke to her about it. What what would you take out of that conversation? People can find the full interview on ESPN dot com. But what would you tell us about what she had to say about reaching out to Greg hardy? You know, I was really impressed with Rachel. Rachel told me that initially when all this news broke she had never heard of Greg hardy, and honestly, that's the general sentiment. Anime phantom may fighters very much live in their own bubble, and they're not your typical sports fan. So I'm not surprised to hear people like Rachel say they had never heard of Greg and his his his controversial backstory. But she said she did learn about it. And she said that she believes that everyone including her husband who was arrested for second degree assault that long ago does. Serves the second chance, and she'd hopes that he gets a second chance. She said she hopes. Her husband gets a second chance low. She has never been in a situation like this before she is not a high level fighter so to speak. She just four and four she's never had this kind of media attention, but she's really handled it very well. And I think it's somewhat I don't know symbolic car warming. If you wanna call it that tomorrow, she she told us yesterday that in her corner, so a corner and a flight if you don't know, you know, you usually get three coaches to come out with you and be by her side talk to in between rounds her corner will be her dad her mom and her brother, and I think that that's pretty powerful stuff. They're very proud of of her. I saw them earlier today. And I think that she has said all the right things and even went out to find Greg and speak to him and say that she has no issue and being on the card. Do you think the public outcry about partnering these two in about it being on ESPN has made either ESPN or or the UFC more aware and more sensitive to how they handle both sides of it both hardy and and Rachel fight to be Frank as far as the UFC concerned. No, I know you have see president Dana white was not happy. When I said that I thought it was a tone deaf to I would not have done it. I don't think it was necessary. I don't think Greg hardy has earned the right to be on the first ESPN card. It's a historic card. He's just three. No. I didn't understand.

"Weight classes. So he is shrinking himself down to one hundred and twenty five pounds to five hundred pseudo who beat mighty mouse Johnson for the championship. It's very good matchup. One's a wrestler. One's a dynamic striker very very even magic, but lean dillashaw, but we don't really know how that we gonna affect them. But should be really entertaining fight as far as the Greg hardy thing, it is a conflicting thing because you know, he everybody knows him for one thing. And and it's it's that it's it's how his NFL career unravel with his domestic violence with his domestic violence convictions. And that stuff getting dropped and all that stuff and basically played his way out of the league with all this stuff around him. And the thing that made it even worse was on the same card. You have page van Zandt versus a woman named Rachel ostrich. And she was she in the lead. To her five with page van Zandt was attacked by her husband had an orbital bone. Broken was in the hospital was taken off the card. So in the meanwhile, while she was off the car that aside let's Greg hardy on the ESPN card as well. And so nobody thinks that ostrich and page Avanzi are going to fight then doctors decide to clear her and she does wanna fight on the same card. So now, you have a domestic violence survivor on the same card as a notorious domestic violence of user. So that's got some odd stuff around it because Dana white is, you know, a few years removed from saying you there's no coming back from hitting a woman, and yet he's been on his TV show on the fight pass smiling from ear because Greg hardy, and he's got he's got this guy in the co main event on this debut card, which you know, he's he's he's, you know, celebrating I'm on ESPN. Now, we're finally here. And to celebrate have a former football player with all this stuff in the background. And it's the Komeda then on you have see it's kind of weird. It's like it's not it's not some dumb before they've had CNN punk. They've had in Brockton. Listener Ray Mercer on the often on before. But you know, for them to have this idea of oh, we've been accepted by the mainstream now, but we're also going to give you a little bit of freak show. It's it's it's very conflicting there, but I'm super excited to have them aboard because they have these pay per view cards, obviously. But these fight nights that they put together for sensually free, or at least a vast discount from what you would pay on pay per view, those cards or often better. I don't really understand the business model, but as someone that works for years PM thrilled about it. We need. I'm sorry. Go ahead Tobin. No, I'm just saying like that. They they do a really I think because you guys, you know, nobody nobody promotes sports better than ESPN. I do think that's going to be very good for the fighters and people will learn more about the fighters. I just think that I think that will bring it along a lot further than the relationship with FOX did I we gotta we've done enough of this fighting stuff. Yeah. It was just a big ESPN plus commercial. I don't think that's the way they'd want to promote of Greg hardy personally. But until we have token here, I got a real quick just get to what's up with Dwayne Wade boulevard is this happening. I'm trying man. The there's a big thing with this. There's a guy in the state who's like holding it up with some law. I think we talked about this before the with the Jose can say go thing you guys wanted. You know, we had an exchange. You guys are going to promote the way boulevard, and and I was gonna promote Jose Canseco streak coming back. It turns out it's Jose can Seko's fault that Dwayne doesn't have a street yet because because of Jose can say getting his street taken away. They don't want to give people who are living roads anymore. That's that's what I've been told state. State roads, the guy who is in charge of the now is from down here and knew what happened with the whole Jose can Saco thing. So now, he is taken to stay policy on a wanna give people who are living state roads..

"That's what I'm curious this first year. Yes. PIN of the casual sports fan. Not just casual fans. The casual sports fans, you see the delineation. They're trying to make. Yeah. If today's an indicator. Then I think we're going to gain a lot of fans it is week one. They're probably saying come on. Let's go strong. If this thing flops are they going to do that for the next five years? That's how long they're in bed with ESPN that remains to be seen. But I want to be an optimist and feel like, you know, what the sport has always grown. It goes in ups and downs. But it kind of has for the most part it is some sort of a Klein. That's how it is with our website. That's how it's been with Emma may junkie radio. That's. So I'm pretty confident that we're going to continue that with the ESPN era. There's more stars. Now, not careful. I didn't say superstars there's more stars. Now, there's a lot look I mean. This is what's happening on Saturday. You got this title fight, which is a champion versus champion and then Gillespie's not a star. But he's twelve no five and no in the UC. And if he just keeps winning. I mean more attention is gonna come his way. He's kind of like a news mon-, except he's not talking like a news one. But this one was kind of quiet early on, you know, he's got a little bit of that benefit is has been around for a long time. Rachel ostrich page, vans and has a big spotlight lever to share. I mean, they're not massive stars with the recognizable names. But look you get the Donald Surani. He's a star Alexander Hernandez. Should he be Donald Sunni, he'll become a stop the I th that's that's the first card that's going on on Saturday the following week ESPN, plus a son, Sal versus Moore is all the mic on every card's gonna give you solid fighters that. I what's underneath a star. Didn't we go through this about two years ago? Dr might be too strong of a word topped off at all star. I think what's underneath a star though under a star. Yeah. Prospect. No I like the game. We played. Where we tried to average. I think we ended up making you guys ended up having like different variations of stars incorporated. But the overall game being headliners on above rioting, and how to how many cards and doing that math. And and and the man, you know, that that's another thing again, they're coming strong. And to be honest. I was surprised you're saying that fight we hit. You late was hitting me as soon as they started flashing the twain nineteenth schedule. Oh, shivers went down old Dan Thomspon with the way, I'm wired looking at that monster the their biggest run yet guys. So at the same time, if I'm interested to see these things, but those people that are like the animals, and I love you guys. We can't have sports that you saw. I'm I all of us are somewhat wired like this. But if you're one of those people who are like give me fights every weekend. Don't be mad when we have who's this guy headlining this Carter.

I wanted to be the guy that let us to change leader. I wanted to be all that and responsibility being a player in the world leaving team is something for many people Brown was one of those guys that came in Cleveland and tried to really shows show us what it's like the championship, and it was harboring. And sometimes you get the most out of the group is not the easiest thing in the world. And like, I said only fewer or mid for chosen Florida. You know, I feel like the best person calls.

And I'm not going to give it up the other intriguing note for this weekend's card the match up between T J dillashaw, the UFC bantamweight champ who has dropped ten pounds to face flyway champ and receive Hello. ESPN insider aerial who wanna says this matchup could single handedly determine the future for this particular weight class. This is sort of a secret not being talked about. I don't think the promoters want us to talk about it. But here's the truth. You have wants to get rid of the flyweight division the one hundred and twenty five pound weight class. Leave that is just not marketable that they're not selling tickets that they don't sell pay per views and the ratings are in high when they fight they had a man named Dimitrius Johnson has champion for many years and the fans for whatever reason didn't gravitate towards him. However DJ loses in August. A Henry pseudo. And they viewed that as the beginning of the end. In fact, they traded DJ tune organization in Singapore. And so they're bringing TJ dillashaw from one thirty five down twenty twenty-five to essentially face this out. Henry believes that if he wins on Saturday, he will keep this division around it will survive. And in fact, he has told me that fighters in his weight class one twenty five up to him and said, I don't like you. I want to fight you. But on Saturday, I'm rooting for you because I feel like you're fighting for my job as well. That's unbelievable steaks. That's bigger than a belt in my head. I can't even imagine. It's crazy competitor is going up to you saying, basically, please save our division. Yes. Sayed my livelihood. But that's what's at stake. That's what's at stake and not only that. So if Huda wins, and he's beating the one hundred five champion who's coming down. He then believes that he'll get a shot to fight for his belt at one thirty five. So there's all kinds of drama going on, and this is a pay per view level fight. Yes, it's going to air on ESPN. Plus, they're kicking off the partnership in a very big way. But make no mistake about it. Like, this is a very big fight. This is one of the best fights of the UC's gonna put on in two thousand nine hundred incredible. The other story line here. Greg hardy now for those who follow football, we look at Greg hardy, and the conversation has been he's gonna fight on this car. He's gonna fight on the same card as ostrich. She went through abuse. You saw her saying, hey, I'm focused on my fight not on him for us. We think there's going to be controversy. That's the assumption. What's the reality? When it comes to how UFC and it's look at Greg hardy. So when I first found out that the UFC was signing three know Greg hardy with his history with his checkered past. I thought this was going to be a PR nightmare to be quite honest with you. It hasn't been and the fans haven't been all up in arms. In fact, they often tell me quite frankly to stop talking about his past because they don't know who Greg hardy is Emma. May fans live in a bubble. They're not very familiar with this past you and sports fans. We know what he did. And what he was accused of convicted of and I believe that Greg hardy while he may have a future in the sport. While he has shown signs of being a pretty solid fighter with Ross skills. He's not UFC caliber he has fought three times as a professional. None of his fights have gone past sixty seconds. He's never fought a UFC caliber fighter. They're putting him on this card because it's the debut card on ESPN. I don't believe that he has earned the spot. And quite frankly, as I said earlier today, I feel like it was a tone deaf decision to put him on the same card as Rachel because keeping Rachel on the card after everything she's been through was a great story. An uplifting story, she is a role model to a lot of women told me a lot of women have reached out and said, we are inspired by what you're doing putting Greg into this card and combining the two stories I think is unfair to her UFC fight night, one forty-three at Barclays center in New York.

While he has shown signs of being a pretty solid fighter with raw skills. He's not UFC caliber he has fought three times as a professional. None of his fights have gone past sixty seconds. He's never fought a UFC caliber fighter. They're putting him on this card because it's the Dave. Bucar on ESPN. I don't believe that he has earned the spot. And quite frankly, as I said earlier today, I feel like it was a tone deaf decision to put him on the same card as Rachel Ostrovitch because keeping Rachel on the card after everything she's been through was a great story. An uplifting story she is a role model to a lot of women. And she's told me a lot of women have reached out and said, we are inspired by what you're doing putting Greg into this card and combining the two stories I think is unfair to her UFC fighting night, one forty-three at Barclays center in New York. You can see it on ESPN. Plus, how do you replace a Heisman winner? That's next. Sportscenter allnight. It's ESPN.

"But would we rather be on pay per view rather be on this or that? And I think at least for the main event like these guys are getting value out of this. I mean, this this was very very cool, and very very real the value that they're pulling from being the main event on this card, and I'm happy to see it go to the to that it's going to how do you feel about Greg hardy being on debut card? Look at the end of the day. Like, I don't I don't care about my personal feelings about Greg hardy being in the sport anymore. Like, I kind of feel like that's an irrelevant question at this point. Because everybody knows now what great. Well, I mean, we don't know exactly what happened, but we know the store. Right. And some people have thoughts on it. Some people have different thoughts on and those are going to change. So we could sit around here and talk about whether it's right or wrong. But at the end of the day were just talking circles. I mean, this is just it's a polarizing topic. Right. I'm more interested in now. Because of who he is and because of the way in which they're using him. And he's being rushed. I mean. But he's also got a lot of natural talent. I mean from sporting perspective. I'm I'm I am intrigued to see how he does. I will say that. But as far as like trying to speak to okay, look, I don't think he should be the main event, I think that that I think that that's almost kinda disrespectful to summit to two guys who've been fighting for longer than a year, you know, but as far as my personal feeling towards him as an athlete, I'm interested. I wanna see how he does I do. And so I agree with you like the train has left the station on Greg hardy the enemy fighter. It's been a reality for quite some time. You could have talked about this when he went on the contenders series. He has three pro fights under his belt. Let alone three amateur fights as well. So I don't think that that's the big question anymore to me. It was just the two parter afterwards. It was a putting him on the debut. Because look, you're doing interviews. You're right. We shouldn't be spending this much time talking about Greg hardy. He's not a mixed martial arts fighter. He's trying to become one. But let's be honest if the Saint Louis or they're not the same Louis Ceram anymore. The LA Rams of the Dallas Cowboys of the Buffalo Bills. Call them today. He wants to go back to the NFL. He can't go back to the NFL. So he's doing this. God bless you your China. You're trying to make a living. But I don't believe that if the UFC ESPN deal was starting in twenty thousand let's say starting in twenty twenty I don't believe he's in the UFC Berkley. They're expedited him, so I think it's almost bums me out that we have to talk about and we should be celebrating. The fact that UC finally made it to ESPN that Disney is in the business. We don't need to be talking about Greg hardy, and I feel like this was forced and it shouldn't have happened. And I also feel like partout after knowing what happened to Rachel ostrich. You shouldn't have done that. That was a tone deaf decision that part that part was terrible. That part tone-deaf almost doesn't go far enough to to describe that. I mean, it's just a bad decision. It's it's just in bad taste, but I wanna give. Jeff an opportunity because he was saying earlier, which which surprised you, and I think it's a prize me to that. You were kind of saying that you understand that putting them in the Komeda then and that you get surprised and what kind of like if that fight reloaded in the card. Do you think that the overall interest in this card as a whole would be lower? Because we we wouldn't be talking about him as much wouldn't be combing event..

"Not to listen to fans to just completely kinda shut it out. And just do your thing. You know what I mean? And they're doing that right now with the with the hardy the hardy fight I mean, it's it's almost like it's it's it's it's not even defiance. It's just they're just like, no. That's what we're doing. It's like, they're not even there's no emotion to it. Right there just waiting and we're not doing this despite you we're just doing we're just going. We're going to do that. They did put something out to try to to was sort of oppressed thing to try to negate the situation so saying that like Rachel being on the same card as Greg hardy, but they their articles that came out Dana even said, Rachel forgives, the situation and says that everybody deserves a second chance, and it was kind of the way of saying like, hey were addressing this. And we're addressing this with the person who would be the most sensitive towards the situation. And that's what got put out there. And we're not going to talk about it after that. And in some ways as a woman and with the metoo movement going on I understand everybody's sensitivity. But I also try to think that there are certain people who should be forgiven. I would forgive the situation more. If I heard something from this guy, saying, hey, man, I completely made a mistake. Martial arts has helped me revitalize my life deal with my anger issues, because I do know people who have used martial arts as a tool to help them get through a lot of things in life. And I think I'd be more forgiving of the situation. But I don't want to think that they didn't address it having Rachel b the person. I don't know if she was pressured. I don't think so to be the one to say it, I think that that kind of made me go. Okay. I'll let me think about this for a second. I think she I think Rachel's also putting in a weird spot because in a wave if you go if you take the other route, and you say, you're not okay with it. You're going against your. Decisions. We know. I mean, we just talked about how Coby was wronged. We know that you know, if you have certain tensions with the UC sometimes things don't don't let your way of saying anything of these. I mean, she could also very well believe, you know, Bryant what she's saying to be true. So I don't know that but back to the criticism part, the UC's a business and the main point of a business is to make money, and you know, I see people on the time line going all how could they use you change the event this, you know, so wrong fast forward, sixty days later, they're doing all John Jones is awesome. Hashtag UC to thirty two. So people are still buying the paper views if people are still tuning in on so mad at John Jones. I'm gonna buy this in HD. Standard man, super horrible example of this. But in example, of this r Kelly's record sales went up, isn't that? I think that's job. You don't have a theory about that. My theory is that people have heard this Arkalyk controversy, and there's old people like we'd be like back in my. They want to they want to hear or Kelly was I don't think people Danny's age like bumping in. You know, they're reading fly or something. You know? Here's my relentless whole thing is the what's already been stated, I'm with you. By the way, the Rachel ostrich thing. It's like number one show me another sports league that would have done that. I mean, not one of them would have done that probably because they would have faced more public scrutiny about it. I think that's one thing. But what about the do pacman and f- NFL shot of alarms people still playing by Jones? Yeah. Jones just put you see the fight. He was in the Atlanta airport. Someone start a fight with him in pacman slept them. I was like pacman. Maybe you're not a bad guy. I got the whole thing on camera. The NFL certainly is a greasy operation as well. But just the optics of it would look so the NFL got rid of Greg hardy for crying. Out there for that. For a moment. I, you know, look the point is with her..
