"robert whitaker" Discussed on You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen
"And with the trends in the sport and showing respect to the fact that guys have gotten better, and they just. Can't do this as long. Look, you will go back and talk about tournaments, even the ones that you're still seeing that take place in Arizona on a very rare, Cape when we are treated to a tournament, I can't think of a guy that had to be out there twenty five minutes. I just can't think of it off the top of my head. Even back in the olden day, when hoist was winning those tournaments collectively through the course of the evening. He was on out there for twenty five minutes. It's a very very long. It's a very long ask. I think as a whole is pulling it off boxing. It's shot boxing, right in the ass. They wonder why you no one's watching boxing anymore. It's twelve rounds possibly want to watch that. What would I possibly want to watch that? It's called the law of diminishing marginal utility for any of you business majors out there. It's a say that too much of a good thing is not a good thing. The example given will be, here's a chocolate bar. Take a bite. Did you enjoy that? Oh, yeah. Oh, it was delicious was a wonderful chocolate bar. I believe you now I want you to keep doing that. I want you to eat twelve candy bars nonstop in a row. I assure you those last bite. You are not going to enjoy, but you're doing the same thing, the for the first part and the first bite. You really did enjoy. So where's the tipping point? I often time here fans come out and go, oh, no. That was amazing. I want to see more of it. I get that. And that's very selfish. And as a fan, you have every right to do that. But to then watch those two athletes who went out there and did it not be able to perform again for a meaningful period of time, we've discussed this, the last full five rounds that we got at a point in time. I believe this was just passed up by cowboy and Al. I think they went the distance, right? But at one point in time, it was Robert Whitaker, and you'll Romero neither of which has fought sense, well over a year the next closest we got was cut short by one second. So let's throw that second and just say it was five five which was Korean zombie versus your ear. Neither fighter has fought sense. There's a reason why they went out. They gave it their all their perform. They put on wonderful shows, wonderful, meaning things that they should be very proud of. But somebody in a more responsible role has got to be able to look at the data. That's right in front of us and say, you know what it appears that, that is just simply too long, and as great as they did in his fun as that was to watch, there would appear that there is a problem here for whatever reason. If you don't have the courage to come out and say it and identify it for what? Let's just call it for whatever reason, but let's look at the data look at this shelf, life, look at the return of your commodity, which is the athlete, and consider doing this different. I think that, that would be very reasonable. I think being very reasonable. But I already know it's going to happen because I brought this up before it happens every time. People don't seem to love that argument changes heart..

"I just don't want to spoil that we're going to do that sooner rather than later now, Israel signing, Robert Whitaker. They seem to have a little thing going on. Now, they're gonna fight there in the same way class. So they are gonna fight when we don't know. But I imagine it safe to say fall of two thousand nineteen and safe to say Australia now the whole stadium show. And I mean, I don't know that that'd be me parlaying too many things, but I'd say two thousand nineteen in Australia. Yeah, why because the UC goes Australia often in their well-supported there and Whitaker's been booked many times in Australia few of fallen through. And I thought there. In fact, the UC's how to stadium show there. And it did very well now two thousand nineteen fall off. I think it's safe to say that why because Whitaker from all accounts sounds like he's gonna come back or he's already on the comeback trail and not a son even though he wants his time off. He just doesn't wanna fight in the early fall. But I think he's ready to get down sometime later in the fall because Ida Sonya as proud as he is of being the interim champ, I think wants to make no bones about it. He wants to be number one in the middleweight division and then circling back to Jones, I'm sure at some point. He liked to be regarded as the number one fighter. Now presently and maybe of all time, but slowly, but surely will get there. Anyway, going back to Whittaker and newsreel out of sign it we have some cuts that I wanna play from you guys. This comes courtesy of the area who wanna anime show, this cut number one is Israel taking a little bit of offense to some of Whitaker's comments. I'm gonna say like why Bennett understand why these going to ROY that all that said, it'd be only critical of innocent of that was that all think he's as good as. So you take that how you want. But it makes it sound. Like, I'm talking on you back all the time, and you know. Let's just feels sorry it sorry gets upset. He's things relaxed. I like you had a great weight on the weekend. And it seems like every time someone awesome question or that the sport Lauder into second. He can't help himself mentioned my name and. It's a little concerning. Is it concerning? On the only thing in his head. And like, surely he could be using his spotlight for for for other purposes. You know, like if a for instance, like he's calling me like a fake news Yoneda. Thanks rally. Well, like the pretty heavy Thome. You know, when like he could be using his foot like two to for the purposes, and I guess the only thing that Israel can can can talk about as me, you know, I'm to be on. All right. So obviously, I messed that one Whitaker speaking to a Wani and him reacting to Israel's comments or sorry on Israel taking offense to his comments. You know, other interviews that he's done Whitaker's pretty laid back. And he hasn't struck me as anybody who delivers venom when speaking about others at least not yet. He's actually a pretty model citizen world champion. I mean, I think you could ask for more. If you're a promotion, unless you want a little bit more, the the promo wrestling type promos, you know, you're never gonna get them from our Whitaker. Like, I said, he's just a chill, dude. But this one's a little confusing. And I'll tell you why. Because I own ously also caught that where Israel out of Sonya was saying something about Whitaker being a Kiwi. Born in New Zealand, but living in Australia. But almost like. Almost coming at him for being in that situation. And. Israel was born in Nigeria and lives in New Zealand. So he he flies both legs. I think he's proud of living in New Zealand. That's where his successes come as an athlete. You know, you saw him bow down to his coach. By the way, it was a very touching moment after he won the world title there in the octagon at UC to thirty six the city kickboxing Jimmy's gets talked about a lot how it's up and coming..

"PM plus a quick reminder because so much news flows through the sport. I don't even know people. Remember that did they do you think the cable companies were stubborn in that?

You just can't get here in the US order that. But I don't go to them for for much in that regards. I thought that was kind of a big deal for them. Yeah. You can watch the Super Bowl on Riley. Just basically gave the UCLA blank check. The you've see came aboard the their subscriptions grew and said, you know, what these guys are monsters. We want everything that has to do with them.

Kelvin gas lem who was supposed to fight Robert Whitaker a few paper ago in February to be more. Exact who's gonna fight Robert Whittaker Whitaker had double knee. A hernia surgery. Excuse me, wasn't able to fight on that same card outta Sonya defeated Anderson Silva and Sonya was promoted to fight Calvin gasoline because both of them were healthy and ready to go. That's why they're fighting for the title. The winner gets the fight Robert Whitaker sometime in the summer. And by the way, Whitaker updated his health, recently and said he will be ready to go in the summer. So that's good. Anyway in this fight the odds, let me see here. I told you the other ones where Holloway minus two thirty point eight plus one eighty in this one. Israel out of sign is this one seventy five Kelly Gasol's, plus one forty five. So it's a lot tighter of align. Here. Remember is he has lost. Once this will be a six fight in sixteen months. So he's had an incredible splash into the alternate fighting championship Calvin Gasol last guy picked on tough goes out there. He wins Tuffy defeated Iraq hall who everybody thought was going to take down that season. And then he's even fought. Tyron Woodley, the former U of C welterweight champion to a split decision. Had his fair share of weight cutting controversies do you see decided to move them up to middleweight teach him a lesson? He went up there..

Thank you Ellie. Let's go back to the phone lines. Now talk to more fans. Breaking news again Robert Whitaker out of tonight's made event. Ernie a- surgery scheduled for Madame moments from now in Melbourne devastating news, not only for the UFC. But for Robert Whitaker who continues to get all these freaking bad breaks time. And again, he had shingles. Prior to the last time that they were in Melbourne with him headlining that card was supposed to be against Luke rock hold now. Just hours before the event he has to pull out and is going under the knife Joseph Detroit. How are you? Good. How about you area? I'm doing okay. Good. I just got a few questions for you that I think they should let the winner of tonight. And Calvin fight for the official title Whitaker should be stripped. It's just my opinion. Well, I wanna see how long he's out for this is definitely a bad break. But I typically like to subscribe to the rule that if you don't defend your title or you're not scheduled to fight within a year. Then you should be stripped in this case he last fought in June. So let's see how far he's out. Let's see how long he's out for. I should say let's see how long of a recovery this is needed. And then let's talk about stripping in. But I think right now, it's a little premature to talk about stripping. Because he pulled out last year knee injury. I think it's better for him. You don't have to take some time off. But my second question is not question opinion. True. They're gonna make McGregor verse Copley for the I think it should be Tony Emporia for the interim. Yeah, that's Donald Surani just talking right now from what I'm hearing the interim belt isn't being discussed. I don't think a belt is needed for that kind of fight. I don't think a belt elevates that kind of fight certainly not an interim title. So at this juncture, I think that's just cowboy talking and look he's going to get the fight. It seems like that's the front runner. I don't think you need to push for an interim thing anyone wants it, quite frankly, I think the interim belt would would almost like soil that that fight. I don't think anyone wants to see an interim belt online. I don't think either guys should be fighting for an interim belt when you have guys like Tony dust emporium ally. Doing what they've done as of late. Let's go back to the phone lines and say Hello to Corey in California, Corey how are you? Hey, I'm good. How you doing? I'm doing. Okay. Some some disappointing news, but we still have a car tonight. But yeah, it's it's a bummer. These things happen from time to time in in mixed martial arts and. I mean, this is a big one especially because it's the Australian who's now out of the card. Yeah. Honestly, like you said before man, I don't know how these injuries happened the day of the fight. How much are you actually doing? Such a serious injury. But I don't know it's fight game. And it happens. But. So my original copies I called about it. Now trying to shake up. I was gonna say do you think that Anderson is? His own legacy a little bit by taking these bigger fights with the much younger guys are like the fights with whatever, obviously, they're bigger fights. And he's a big name. And do you think that you have tarnished by throwing them into a fight with Israel, just because if Anderson, but then it turns around and now Anderson is card having a big name for Israel to fight. So do you think that enersen should lay off he's bigger fights? Or do you think he's finer you think his legacy Jenner hurt in the end after all this look if we're talking about tarnishing legacies? The only thing that's maybe tarnished his legacy. So to speak is the fact that he was caught with PD's twice other than that. I mean, I don't think opponents will tarnish anyone's like seeing fact to meet on the elevates your legacy because you're finding the toughest guys even as you're in your swansong so to speak. I like the fact that he's taken this fight. Everyone thought it was a mistake. It's an opponent that he thinks he could beat he's fourteen years older. He feels like maybe he's not as experiences him. Maybe he hasn't fought the kind of competition that he's. So I don't think this is. I mean, imagine he pulls it off great story George Foreman. It's like Randy tour all over again. So I honestly don't think that he's tarnishing his legacy on this one. Let's go to one quick call before we take another break Hamilton, Ohio. What's up man areas? A pleasure speaking with you. I want to go back to the UC days, or so I started hearing your voice. Boy that was handled by the UFC. I am so proud that you've come to where you had with the hard work. You've done to put yourself in today's position. Thank you know, as far as what's happening transplanted melborn sad. And that's the core. So the nature of the game. My question to you is at forty three year old is now put himself in position we he's probably going to be having to save this card. I understand that. There's not a lot of four weeks on your old man at his weight. They can do anything except maybe defend themselves. Does he really have a chance to see wing? And do you see this only in the heavyweight World War forty yours can compete one or two times? This gentleman is not tarnishing his world. It just a building him being allowed to do this because of his name and his past of fighting really realistically can this man really compete at this level with this young kid. I mean that remains to be seen. I don't think it's a bad matchup firm. In fact, I'd say he's too big of an underdog. I'm curious to see if he can turn back the clock tonight. But yeah, it's a great call to great point. The best news is this flight hasn't been canceled. So we're about to find out in a matter of moments in a matter of hours, whether or not Anderson Silva can hang with Israel to Sonya after the break. We're going to be joined by my colleague, my partner shell son. And he's in Melbourne. I want to get his take on things. He knows coming gasoline almost better than anyone. He was the one who drafted him on the ultimate fighter way. Back when devastating news Robert Whittaker's out of tonight's UFC two thirty four main event. And I just got details about how it all went down. I'll tell you about all that and more right after the break. You're listening to Hawaii's may show right here on ESPN radio and ESPN app this

"Anything switched goes since we did our main event breakdown for you with Robert Whitaker versus Calvin gas. Lem? What goes down in about twenty four hours? I picked Kelvin gasoline and seeing them stand next to each other. I mean, he saw a lot of it on the ultimate fighter. But I feel like Robert Whittaker's demeanor has changed a little bit. He was a little bit more lax on the show. And now, I think he's a little bit more Dowden a little bit more focused more on the show. I felt like it was the opposite. So I am a little nervous about my pick. But I I'm still going to stay true to Kelvin gasoline. Just don't think he's gonna knock them out though. Especially in the first round. All right. How about you Richard hunter? Would you like? You know, what I I don't know how much of this on doing just for the sake of picking and upset, but I'm gonna take Kelvin in this fight to just because I think he's got way more of a chance than anybody's given him credit for and I I definitely don't see him as a as a set earlier two and a half to one underdog. I just think that there are I think there are too many factors with Kelvin gasoline that get overlooked in this, and I'm gonna go with Gasol Whitaker is minus two twenty five. Yep. And gasoline plus two oh, five anybody. That's wondering the did have the ceremonial way in which was actually the the actual weigh ins because of the time difference. They didn't bother with the fighters coming in eight hours earlier. So everybody's been wait. In fact, Kelvin Ghasem came in at one eighty four. So both guys are good to go. Now the Komen event or I'm still stick. Well, look, I think asked them I disagree with you on one thing goes, I think gas them win by think he can win by just a he I love his hands above his boxing, like Richardson. And if you put them on you, you can be in a lot of trouble. So that said I see that being more of a likely scenario in the first two rounds if the fight goes longer, I loved the experience at that Whitaker has as a champion in. He's had the show patients. He's had to dig deep especially in Romero fight that I think it would favor him the longer it goes. But but if I have to only one pick one name, I'm going with Robert Whitaker here. All right. Let's say the co main event for just a couple of minutes from now we gotta take our last break. So let's do that it's ever made junkie radio on fire nation challenge. Three when we come back.

"Those heavyweights like tight to Vasu Moammar Kansai gets towards the latter stages, but Robert Whitaker Israel out of Sonya Tyson. Pedro kinda hit a rough patch. But Dan Hooker Jake Matthews it they're doing pretty well for themselves over there. But this thing sold out in seven minutes. And that's why this you have see to thirty four is kind of top heavy what I've started to run into a lot of you told me, I'm not getting it because the main way to converses gasoline and the co main out sign universes Silva, you can't ask for anything better. But after that, there's a job off. So I'm just curious. I have to go to a fiftieth birthday party of a friend of mine. So I'm not gonna watch it. Therefore, I'm just not going to buy it. But if I wasn't going this is one of the ones where I'd be asking goes hooters, or are we going to? Flip this summer. We're going to someone's house or one of the stations casinos thing. I mean, they finally got it figured out. Oh, did they really? I think have just a one show deal for now until they can work it out. Right. But I was thinking the exact same thing. It's one of those where you kind of look on Facebook and sees anybody else in the party because you're just right at the very top heavy. But then after that, I don't know, man. What do you think? I thought the same thing when the card yet it sold on seven minutes. So they know they know where they're at. And they probably knew we don't really have to spill a lot of talent onto this fight card because we're going to sell it anyway. But but then again, you still want to sell the pay per view. Yeah. I you know, he's worked Worked out. out the way. I would also think that they have to kind of you that is two different business models. I mean one you you to sell out or have a big draw or whatever. But the other thing is the monster. That's the that's what I'm that's what I'm saying. All right. Not check this out. We've all been wondering what we don't get an answer. Still. And this is getting to the point where it's ridiculous, but Dana white chimes in on the flyweight division, cut number three, please. Josh we're going to probably see how this thing. Plays out with the one hundred thirty five pound fight, and whatever. But yeah. No. We haven't made any decisions on that yet. By the way, that's his if Dana white were members of the media plays out. You know, what that means? He hasn't even announced what the thirty five pound fight is. I mean, I imagine it's more is we're still show. But let's see downst- it right now at this moment. Let's give it to the suicide could do it. It's two months. So that would be the April thirteenth pay per view. We're going to wait two more months to find out the fate of these guys why? And what does that fight after do with it? Unless it's pseudo in dillashaw at thirty five which again with the fuck was Marlin marines, doing then fighting what first of all what was the sun's out doing fighting rise in to. Why did I just go out there and do that if he's not gonna get the fight after the run that that kid has been? I mean, it's ridiculous now, I don't know. I wasn't in that setting. But I'd like to know if like if John asked it, why wasn't there someone else that followed up after John or maybe why didn't John to go this to you think the sounds normal Dana because this sounds ridiculous to the rest of the world.

"We've done it with certain characters that are in the AFC. But with style bender you look at the way that he's dismantled guys. You look at his background. You look that. He's not. He doesn't have seven fights seven were jacking him off. He's a guy with a a well-documented background. He can do it. Kind of all he has a ton of fights under his belt. A knowledge is mixed. Martial arts us ton of combat sports fights. So I just think he he's our diamond and get used to them. And he's giving me the face of of mixed martial arts moving forward by. He's that type of guy is the personality. Here's their look is the style. He's a knockout artist he has great takedown defense. So I think it's inter- Silva you're going to watch style bender and people like holy shit. He's that good and. I think mcevers good bring out the best in him. I think he's that competitor. And I think he ends up getting a walk off home run KO in the second round, guess Anderson Silva, and which would set up if the cards play ripe for the fam- down under a Whitaker if you were to get past Calvin gasoline. You have an all Oshii Anik fuck in fight with style. Bender verse Whitaker, which would draw huge fucking numbers. If you think fourteen minutes, sell this arenas fast. Try forty seconds. If those two motherfuckers fight each other after two huge knockouts brought Robert Whitaker Kelvin gas main event at UC to thirty four. It's and it's a great event for Robert Whitaker. He's under appreciated. You know, you look at what he did in the two. You'll Romero fights beat them basically with one leg and one arm in both fights. There's always a problem. The biggest thing for me here. With Robert Whitaker is pay attention to how he starts a fight. And how the the fight plays out. Because for whatever reason he is injury prone when I say injury prone means he hits guy so hard his hands break his foot breaks, his knee gets fucked up there, there seems to be a common thing where he's getting hurt in these fights. And he's still pulling it out still able to pull it out. Well, if there's one thing that gas does better than you'll Romero jock race ouza..

"It's possible to beat by polar disorder without the use of meds. You can even have a shot at a normal life. I'll tell you. Hi, did that rather impossible first thing. And how I'm navigating the unexpectedly tricky second part. Everybody does is Ken Jensen with the after bipolar podcast. Episode eleven Robert Whitaker psych meds, worsen mental illness. This is part one in a series of seven of an interview that Dr Mark Hola from McCulloch dot com. Did with Robert Whitaker. Okay. Apologize much for too many things in life comes a point. I just view it as weakness. But I do feel bad that it's been so long since I've recorded an episode of this particular show. I'm all right. But things happen things got Feigen. A lot of things that I talk about on outside of journey dot com. Trying to figure out where I'm going with all the things, I know and. How to use it? Best to help those. I care for the most always a baffling situation for Kenny. I mean, it's pretty well honed down to just a few things now, but I got stumped for awhile bummed out. I love helping people with this like on this podcast. I really enjoy knowing that verb for certain people the things I share come in awful handy. That's putting it mildly. So for those of you that have been wondering that fall into that last category. Sorry for the silence shit happens. And I had a sort some stuff. I popped out the other side at a rabbit hole doing much better. That makes you sound like all messed up. I wasn't. I was just confused. I needed time to think I came out with clarity on how to continue with this show. My other show as I get ready to build also the third show one of doing my website, and how getting paid for all of this stuff while still being benefit to being of benefit to any of you. That are gracious enough to spend your time with me. I got that all sorted. I'm feeling pretty good feeling really good. So before I tackle too, many like specific show by show episode type material I've been sitting on this idea for a while. And it was it was this interview the doctor Mer cola did would Robert Whitaker back in two thousand ten at least. That's when it got put on YouTube. They put it in seven pieces. They're only like six to nine ish minutes apiece. The interview is only a little over an hour long. Why I think I think they must have broken it into that many pieces because Robert Whitaker doesn't waste almost any of his words if you say in something that's important. I got to pages of bullet items here to talk about with you. And I'm not going to talk about each one. It would be I don't know how I'd even do that. And make it sound interesting. It'd be a little bit like sitting in class and who wants that? I'm going to try to just cherry pick some of the the more dramatic facts. I guess I don't know. Let's see what I do. So I'll aimless I at why this even matter to me. And then I'll show while you'll see why why it will matter to you. How about that? Years ago back in. Shit. I dunno must've been must have been around two thousand six. Somewhere narrows when my. The development of my system it takes guts to live. Well, what was happening? I did. Not know I was developing anything I was merely trying to survive and improve. I was doing all of this without a safety net. Psychiatry had already proven to be not only a failure. For me to help me. It it made everything about bi-polar and my whole life worse. And what I mean? My psychiatry is the drugs psychiatrists and psychologists were given me. Everything just kept getting worse. Everything to include my physical health, and then the medical doctor started ladle out drugs for all the metal physical problems were happening to me. I had a moment of clarity once when I laid out all my pills on account or top. And I was like, you know, what if I had gravy? I'd had fucking dinner. I got enough material here to fill my stomach. This is insane. There's no way that this pile of pills of all these various types, equal good health. It just doesn't make sense. And somewhere narrow when I found this interview, I'm chopping out a lot, but I'm trying to focus on Justice interview. Because well. Back when I was building my system and doing everything to get well a so much happened. And I wasn't well right away. So I am hard time. Remembering what happened win? Remember? I remember things that they happened. And I can remember how things happen what it looked like. And what got said, but I can't remember chronological order events. And particularly from that time. So however, this works I found Dr Makola, and he's a medical doctor who in Chicago who eventually grew disillusioned with what western medicine was and was not doing for people in to people who are sick from anything and he got into holistic, healthcare and alternative health care from the standpoint of a medical doctor, and he was wholeheartedly a medical doctor before kind of like me seeing all my pills laid out and thinking if I just had gravy. I'd have an entire meal the evidence the feedback. He was getting from the world for you know, trying to help people in western medicine. Head too many wasn't working. It was too much to deny that it wasn't working on a grand scale. He eventually became Makola dot com. When all stuffy does. He's been doing it for decades. So I drift across him just in my search for trying to find answers to beat bipolar disorder. And in researching his site, I find this interview with Robert Whitaker. Now, Robert Whitaker is a medical journalist. He was a nominee for a Pulitzer. He was a medical reporter for the Albany times union. He was the director of publications for Harvard Medical School, and he wrote a series about psychiatry for the Boston Globe. That was a finalist for the for the Pulitzer prize. And he's written many books. Some recently, I only scanned quickly on Amazon about mental health in America. And the disaster that it is. And why he's got a lot to say about this. He kinda reminds me a will bring over at Brinks dot com will brink as fitness lifting diet, and he even ties into how I got my head. Well, but. Digress. These two men. They're not about flash. They're not about drama. They're they're scientists per se at least that's the reproach. I don't know what will is behind the scenes, what has education and Robert appears to be just a super smart, dude. But they don't they don't say anything if they can't also hold up a scientific study in your face to back. Why they said what they said and believe what they believe they have proof. They don't just say anything, and I liked that a lot. So I got into this this interview and.

"They have an unspoken agreement to burn up a number of rounds before they go and get into it in. We don't see that. We see two guys going after it two guys that are incentivized to stop the fight to guys that are incentivized to make sure they get the win two guys that are incentivized to be entertaining. Those athletes are living up to their expectations. They are absolutely delivering for the fans. So now, it is income, but that the fans offer something back, which is guys were not going to leave you in there for the better part of a half hour. There is no point. We do not need you in the gyms training at that level. All of the time three rounds five minutes in duration eighty percent more than a boxing round, which is hard really hard is enough. I just think that it's something that needs to be reviewed, and I will make the prediction for you now between zombie and your ear who deserve a ton of credit, and certainly get it for me and put on a fantastic perform. I would just offer to you. As a prediction that we're not going to see either of them for a meaningful period of time. And hopefully, it won't be as long of sits and rests as you. Well, Romero and Robert Whitaker had to do. But even if it comes remotely close, I think that's too long for two guys that simply went out there into their job.
