He is one of the most deadly strikers that you know combats produced and Yeah i i think that this was a mismatch but Here we are into twenty twenty one mismatch especially given the fact that anderson silva had the contracts against team ortiz was for hundred ninety five seat ortiz said. I don't think he's made one hundred ninety five points in highschool you waiting at two hundred pounds. Looks like death on the scale and the advantage in civil a bunch of money as a fine so anderson silva was the big winner of weekend. I would say look. Spectacular shot said the few times. I'm to echo. He's not here. Anderson silva's late career in the uc was was very much a bomber. He got matched up with a lot of killers israelite. Assan current champion. Who is like this.

Lieutenant of all the fights that happened in two thousand twenty. Those were two of them. I am of course jose. Young's your fighting dot com hosting the live post facial for the trailer fight club event holyfield or belfort beat beat toward belfort teed ortiz vs anderson silva. Those fights happens.

Not me. I would have been much more hype for that fight until i saw him answering some questions. Mere seconds for making the walk but that is neither here nor there. I'm joining us. This post show. I know we did. Kind of a mini brief po. Show right for the press conference if you wanna call it a press conference. There were some people up on stage. They said some things. They took no questions from the media. So whether you wanna call tonight is on you by joining us again for this post post fight show steven morocco. How are you sir. I'm exhausted and growing more exhausted by the minute. Gone right. i'm right there with you and producer extraordinaire. Casey lighted on the ones and twos. He's going to be collecting your comments on this quote unquote fights that we saw as he does a little jig. You can't see her but estrin is actually playing. This music live. Horns is yeah. It's crazy one lesson not one. That's again fezzet rebel on you know drums drums. And the hi hat and everything. But stephen will start with you know. We spoke on a little bit before. The press conference went before the press conference went. Live are mike of course on the scene but after watching the fights that just happened will start with anderson. solo knocked out ortiz. And i believe eighty one seconds was the official. He didn't really say much of the press conference. Or we're not we can't really dissect that but has your thoughts changed at all over the last forty five minutes. I wanna say since. The presents are Post post show Knocking out tito ortiz. No i think the dido is in over his head think that he came into this fight with All of the circumstances kind of not working in his favor. happened to fight guy. Who's gotten better you know Gotten sharper with his hands since he started working on them exclusively in anderson silva who's just one of the best That we've had and that we produced So yeah i mean. I don't know if i have anything new to say other than i think that tito was. I think the best tito could have hoped for. And i actually did think of this when i first started anybody. See him kinda grabbing. The collar tied a little bit with one of his boxing gloves. I did not. I kind of half expected him to like to like start doing the the box at one point. I could've swore he had that physical impulse. The best thing that he was going to do was used his size muscle Anderson around tie up and basically try to you know work from any inside and a and and Tire anderson out. Get them into what dirty fight make make not pretty not allow anderson have space in distance and so he can set up his combinations and when he did that he he just got lit up. I mean like henderson playing his game of peekaboo but he does. You know he. He bob's ducks. He leaves all the head moving says there and then he has that split second where he gets that opening. He is one of the most deadly strikers that you know combats produced and Yeah i i think that this was a mismatch but Here we are into twenty twenty one mismatch especially given the fact that anderson silva had the contracts against tito ortiz was for hundred ninety five seat ortiz said. I don't think he's made one hundred ninety five points in highschool you waiting at two hundred pounds. Looks like death on the scale and the advantage and solo bunch of money as a fine so anderson silva was the big winner of weekend. I would say look. Spectacular shot said the few times. I'm going to echo. He's not here. Anderson silva's late career in the uc was was very much a bomber. He got matched up with a lot of killers israelite. Assan current champion. Who is like this. Generation's anderson silva jared cannon who is just one of the the hardest thing monsters at middleweight former heavyweight than dropped all the way down. Eighty five minutes is probably within one win away title. And then you're i hall. Coup has said his entire life grew up watching. Sylvan molded his game often. He has looked better than ever. I know he had that. Speed bubbling and sean stricklin. But your hall has never looked better so all of those winds in even the candidate loss was was was even more depressing given the fact that it was such a bad injury that i don't like or not but we've seen anderson injured a few times inside the octagon so the fact that we're getting these back to back vintage anderson Form since against julio cesar chavez junior just warms the heart a fight fans and casey what if i told you back in two thousand and i think it was twelve.

"sean stricklin" Discussed on You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen

"What's happening guys happy. Efi friday l. Explain that later and thank you for joining another special episode of your welcome. The interim heavyweight title fight between derek lewis and surreal. Gone takes place tomorrow and later in the show i will give you my official prediction also coming up today. The ufc has signed a teammate. Of israel out of sonya's so mon biles made her return. And i've got an important question about conor mcgregor injury. That's all later but let's begin with some news that came out this week. Okay so apparently luke. Rock hall was offered sean strickland. We were dana. Told someone in the media this. I think it came out through a tweet luke. Rock called got asked about it and he confirmed. Here's what luke said. I think day and is trying harder than it has to be obviously just because of my outspokenness on different things. Rock told submission radio but this kid sean has been offered to me. So they're trying to do something. I haven't heard any dates or anything like that. But that is something they're interested in and yeah let's do it. I mean he doesn't help himself in any way shape or form with his style and his performance on the mike. They offered me sean. Actually a while back rock called said and i wasn't interested just because he's efi nobody and it wasn't the fight that i wanted. It didn't make any sense. No one knew of him. And i didn't give two fs about him and now it's like danish trying to piss me off with it and now he's obviously out there. He'd beat araya hall. He looked decent and he's got a ranking. So there's something to work with now i guess. They offered it to your riot. Your riot show stricklin instead of me. They offer the shemaya fight. Obviously that didn't come to be. I liked it. That was exciting. That kinda got me up. I don't know this is what we have and there were some other fights that kind of messed around with me so this is seemingly going to happen. They've just got to get a good date and somebody. That's ethene sexy and timely. I wanna fight. That's intriguing. I've done my thing. I've been champion of two different divisions. I've taken my time away. I've been through lots of surgeries. I want something that's gonna get me fired up. And i don't want to just keep following through and they're like. Hey sean strickland. I'm like who the f is. Sean strickland what the effort you talking about is that gonna make me a comeback. So i'm sure you better give me something better than that and nothing that i'm gonna come back for and month after month and it's just like they effing gave me a couple of other options and then those two options fell through and everyone's being h about it every obser- options so here we go. This is at all right guys. I'm done. I can't read or there is something about that response. That is compelling to look. Nobody wants to. Fight sean strickland. That's the truth that nobody wants to talk about. Nobody wants to fight luke rockholt. That's another truth. That nobody wants to talk about getting luke rachael the sean strickland together. Wonderful idea i'm all in. How are we going to build. A fight with sean. Strickland sassy question. How are you going to build. A fight with sean strickland. You wanna bring some attention to it at the same time. The guy doesn't leave you a lot of room to tease him. There isn't a blueprint for how to beat sean strict. He's looked pretty damn good. His record is pretty damn good. What do you do. I submit for you rock. Just did it. Just tell the truth and how you feel about it. He said i couldn't get up for it. I didn't know who the f. this kid was. Okay that's probably true. That is probably true. Sean was not known by anybody until recent period of time. Maybe even as early as a week ago when he fought riot hall. One of those things. I share my story with you guys when i met sean. He twenty one years old he was seventeen and king of the king champ. I didn't believe it. I didn't think i didn't think a twenty one year old could have seventeen fights. I was wrong. But i would go in the category of people that just didn't know who. And or what. A sean strickland is in imagine was to come out and deny this. That wanted have been good because plenty of people would and or are going to deny sean strickland but they would have done the typical use. It raked often people don't do. Is i think styles worn and all the ways to get out of a fight dealt with it rock off fight him said i wanted to fight shemaya of again no problem with any of it. I don't know who he is. I don't like his style. Let's go out and find. I'm just a for you. That's a good way to handle. The truth will set you free. Not everything has to be a show. Not everything has to be a static. Not everything has to be a yo mama joke sometimes. There's no jokes at all. I don't know who the guy was. Man he looks pretty damn good. Saw what he did your idea. Let's see if he can do it to me. I'm on board for that fight. I think the luke rocco scott a bad rap. I really have luke rock also former champion of the world. He matters his words matter his place within the sport matters. Kenny beat sean strict. There's only one way to find out that's between the two of them. But i do appreciate luke's efforts here. I look forward to hearing what shauna has to say in this fight gets made. I'm in loughran sean. Stricklin will fight. In november middleweight. The division ran by israel of sonya. And because you probably missed it. I wanna take a moment to tell you about one of the. Us's newest members who is teammate of sonya's city kickboxing kid named blood-diamond just got signed with the ufc. Welterweight let me ask you a question. How many fights is he had. You're getting cast. Of course you're gonna guess. I was asked the same question. My buddy ryan you want her on. My response was eleven throughout out. But okay somebody. You'll see welterweight. Levin fights on the regional seen guys had three. The guys had three fights. So what does that tell us. He's good at something right. he's good at something. There's only a couple of ways in with that view of fights fewest fights i've ever seen was bj penn who debuted in the ufc but that was also a different time in a different era. Pj pen was also a world champion jitsu which represented the first ever american to do so. Bj had some paper behind him. He had some people voucher but he debuted in the afc. cain velasquez. Got to the very quickly. I cannot recall how many fights but that was a simple fact of havi. Mendez told dana white. No one will fight this guy. No one will give him a fight. Then isn't it. Dan can get in fights. Timofey guide him in blood diamond. We're gonna call blood diamond right. He won't ever forget that. Name kid from africa world champion at something. I'm going to guess kickboxing. Oh why am i guessing kickboxing. I left out most report parts of the story. He's from city kickboxing. That's volkan jim. That's dan hookers jim. That's ziada is jim case. So they've got a level of clout city. Kickboxing has just that. I know of just that. I looked up that i know of seven guys in the afc blood diamonds number. That's that i know of. I think they're closer to eleven one time before guys on it..

"Four of those since returning spencer to eighty five. Just book the big fight. It will touch on that in moment but spencer. What did you think sean. Churkin's performance impress. Were you with what he put together over those twenty five minutes. I mean pretty impressed like this is clearly the biggest one of his career. It's kind of a similar performance to what we've seen from him since coming back where it's just that kind of marauding style coming forward sticking the doubt in people's faces and just kind of wearing them out with volume and and a gas tank that he's one of those guys that he doesn't put a a wild on you but it's just so consistent you never really get the chance to catch your breath. There's no breaks and so to me. It's it's a tremendous performance. You said four straight since coming back from the injury and moving back to middleweight shouts brennan fitzgerald for getting that out there early in the broadcast that he started his career at middleweight. My my sticking point that i loved to point it was. It was the kind of wind he needed to get over this stuff. We talked about last week of great. He beat kristoff yacht. Co like your ryan hall and and he said going in your rioters. a gatekeeper. didn't mean it detrimentally. I use the term. A lot. Because i don't i don't look at it with that negative connotation that a lot of people do it just means. You're you're where you are and there's absolutely nothing wrong with being the ninth best. Middleweight in the ufc. For a number of years. I mean to really damn good. And there's a lot of dudes that would like to trade places with you. And sean stricklin showed that he's a little bit ahead of that. He's a little bit better than that. How far better how much better how far he can go. That's kind of the fun part of this right now is just seeing kenny. Do those same things where it's not e- doesn't show necessarily the power to get you out of there. He's not coming with anything. Fancy or flashy. That's gonna like catch you off guard and get you out of there to hurry. But he's also finished brennan allen during this run and so how far can you take this and and we're going to get to find out here later on this year when he when he has that fight with luke rock. Hold which maybe doesn't tell us anything we'll get to that but this this performance last weekend was exactly what he needed. An an impressive to me aka. What did you think like. Did you walk away from vegas thirty three thinking you know. What that sean. Strickland loud fella. Who likes to talk in his fights and say crazy things. This is a legit title contender. They're watching right now. Do you feel like like. I feel like with kevin. Harlan huges winning fights personality shown and people ready to throw him into a title fight like at the end of the year. If you beat schalke thrown into a title fight. Get them right in there with busy do you. Do you have any sort of the same feeling which sean strickland with this run. That he's on right now after. Getting five straight wins. I'm pretty. I think i'm on record and on most of our shows that we've talked about sean. Strickland has an expensive appreciate this. That i was very much On the strickland bandwagon as hall banned by the way at barry hall bandwagon. By the way it was probably why i was so invested in this main event More i against. I think i didn't like people saying this is like a throwaway main events i understood. I understood the criticism. The car during your i still. It turned out to be a really good card. I didn't think on paper was a great card. But the main event i always thought wasn't intriguing event. I didn't understand people saying well. Neither of these guys are ever going to designate. If i if you write off all wins. He continues the best streak of his Stretches your career and absolutely could have contended and strickland wins than he's the real deal again on the prints positively i was. I was just kind of looking at it. You know how could it benefit both guys So yeah. I was not come sunday morning. I wasn't like wow. I can't believe everyone's talking about sean strickland now. I'm like i'm like no. This is the logical outcome especially given his performance. Which again. I think i picked hall. I thought hall had was the stage of his career. Where he's kind of like matured and he could he could Wouldn't fall some of the pitfalls that he's that he's gone into before and it wasn't a case he got he got beat by a better fighter I hope you're hall. I kind of i kind of flippantly tweeted something like you know. Well i've i've. I've been fooled again by the era hall. You know a story but again. That's that's just sort of like saying we've had expectations for him for so long. I think he needs anyone to tell him. But i think when he looks back in his career he's had a very good career. I'm and i hope. I hope he doesn't become the sort of cautionary tale like your house. Someone who has never quite like good enough to to make it to the titles. That's a lot of fighters that's a lot of fighters who spent a wish they could be that successful but focusing on strickland's i'm telling people do not count this guy out as someone who could not only compete for the title like. I think this is recently bias. I think you could really give someone like israel tucson. You're really good fight. I really do. There's there shades. i think. I'm not the first person to make this comparison. There's shades of michael spinks michael being for the longest time got criticized. Oh he's he's a volume guy. He doesn't have that one punch knockout power. He wanted us to see title. He what is he telling. He was a contender for a long time. We'll we'll strickland. Follow that pat. I don't know he's got the mouth as well. He's kind of trash on the building. Sb certainly not afraid of the microphone. So my my big takeaway is if anyone was sleeping on strong strickland before. I don't know why you would be now if especially if you watch that fight and not just saw the result. If you actually watch that fight you should say. This guy has the potential to be a top five Middleweight by the end of the year. So less than a week. After this victory ak sean strickland already has his new opponent. He will face former middleweight. Champion luke recalled in november at usc to sixty eighth fight has been verbally. Agreed to and this fits. If you watch my interview with rock hold from a few weeks ago. This fits essentially all the criteria that rock cold wanted to check off on the old clipboard..

"And just throw a punch for days and he doesn't stop and then he gets you the fence and he can take you down to you out. It's just a bad her. It is a horrific matchup for your i hall to fight someone that can take a lot of damage. Doesn't give him any sort of range to throw is spinning. Kicks his leg cakes. He's like that snap jab that he kind of keeps people come in a lot. He doesn't do a lot of leg kicks. So it's not like you're halls. Check a lot of kicks. It was just. It was just bad matchup like i think saw strickland just put together the perfect game plan to just get in your ira halls face for twenty five minutes. It just never take his foot off the gas and like i. I can't remember which ron was like. He got your to the fence and they shot in for a takedown. And then you're i all stuffed it sean. Strickland just broke free and then just kept going. You didn't get discouraged whatsoever if step one. If he wants to have one two three and four he had a roadblock he just worked around the roadblock and then he eventually got. he didn't falter whatsoever. He was the better fighter tonight. And i don't know if he's better. Fighter like martial artists but good luck like stopping that guy if you just keep walking for throwing all kinds of punches. And how old are you guys sean. Strickland is by the way. I look this up. He's thirty thirty. he's so young. he's so young he's he's. I'm older than him. He's one of the few elite fighters that i'm older than and but he looks like he's way older than he actually is. So i'm interesting where he goes moving forward especially with this big win on his first minute and i hope he gets another twenty five minute fight because i like watching the guy fight for twenty five minutes and i will add. I hope he never fights in front of a crowd again. Because i love being able to here. Yeah i hope you can just to let me let me. Just add really quickly to what a horrific birthday for your hall. Today's that man's thirty seventh. Burt happy thirty seven zero. Oh my god man again. That's not that's not gonna be one he's gonna be wanting to celebrate our remember anytime soon. What a what a we've talked about this a thousand times over the years with your haba. What a bizarre in just utterly strange strange career this man had like he. I'm guessing at this point. It's probably on the downslide. Like i don't know that he's gonna make tighter on this kind of felt like some sort of death-knell on that sort of conversation right. He's thirty seventy kind of relies on the fast twitch element of the game. That doesn't age well unless you're yoel romero but if you do this guy's career over one hundred times i'm pretty confident. There's at least twenty of them. Were he ends up at uc champion at some point. And we just it feels it feels like we just ended up with the weirdest worst possible version of of your eye hall's career it's a real berman. I agree. Jose brought up. That shot like this was the mental aspect of this fight was so if you could see you know i know we talked about intangibles but man if you could actually. You could almost see the difference towns. Both guys being played out especially when you consider everything. We know about your hall and some mental blocks. He's faced in the past when competing in it felt so so tangible tonight and it brings a great point. Like sean strickland. If he failed at something he made a mistake. He just go back at it you you could. You could see the gears in his head were aren't aren't like around like the are with your labor is what do you remember when we did this. Exact show after kevin holland lost derek. Brownstown and all. I kept saying was i felt like kevin holland step kept stopping at step. Two in a five step process. He'd get the step to and then he would just stop. Sean strickland actually completed the like every single procedure of a fight. And that's the difference between these two contenders. Nothing will stop sean. Strickland from implementing what. He is supposed to knows what he's supposed to do and he's like okay. I'm going to do that was it. You'll appreciate this. If you remember you know in the the moneyball books mission the movie. But the difference between like billy beane and lenny dykstra is like they talk about. Well billy would be would make a mistake And and he was a huge prospect baseball prospect once upon a time and he would make a mistake and just just kill him and it wants us and lenny dykstra went onto become an all star and they were coming up to the minor league together and they said the difference was lenny dykstra f. up something and just he didn't care he just didn't care he'd move on and just whatever go thing and and he went on to great success and that's kind of what we saw tonight and and you could say the same thing about your whole in this fight anyway you would see him losing exchange and just just tonight and maybe some other but tonight specifically you can see this like the look on his face in his body. Language is kinda slumped down and drain. And it's it's like you said he couldn't get the spacey wanted and his corner was getting frustrated. They were doing with the motivate them. But this is the orion hall story amazingly talented guy very thoughtful very thoughtful individual and sometimes that back to bite him In inside inside the octagon. And i think we saw that tonight and I think sean put it best. Might be the death-knell on the You know you're hall will ever compete for a ufc title narrative. It's this for me was was big believer. He would do it and now i think This this was it. yeah The numbers thirty eight twenty three out struck your eye hall in the first round. Forty three to twenty two in round two is eighteen to twelve around three thirty four to twenty four in round. four round. Five sean stricklin out strikes your hall fifty three to twenty six. He had his striking output. Best striking percentage in that fifth round sick performance. Yeah it's a bad man. He doesn't care who he fights. he'll fight whoever. Yep he's a bad man. I'd like to see him. I already have a name in mind. It's a very popular one. We've already discussed the so. I could be given away as far as the next one. You gotta tune into honest right. Jose tweeted out earlier and to mixed reviews. I saw bays and mel sick Bagdasarian contender series. Alums both got fifty k. A fight of the. I went to jason witten. Brian berina which jason wit one. He shouldn't have should have been a draw. But again. i digress. The judging should have been attended. Third round for brian barina. Whatever great fight. Lots of good finishes on this car jared. Gooden took a fight on like three days. Notice gets a first round finishes. I and killed a human being on..

"We talked a lot about delatour tour here but the ufc is also going to have a guard on saturday. It's kind of overshadowed by eligible to sixty three araya. Hall versus sean strickland. The main event and one hundred eighty five pounds certainly interesting fight. I think it's good matchmaking. For whether these guys are riding their career but this man is going going up against pitt bull versus mckee tough. Ask for sure so jed. Let's start with you. Do we have big stakes in this fight between holland strict. Are you ready to say that. Whoever wins this fight. We're going to be on this show next week talking about. You know what this guy's a title contender now. We have like two ounce steaks. This isn't even a six ounce filet there no straits here is this ground. Is what this is this. This will get the job done but it's not something you are talked about. This fight is a perfectly fine fight. It is shocking to me. This is headlining and rent a no. It's not the worst moment we've ever had but is is probably the worst is year less. I'm just blanked one entirely from memory. Your ryo hall is i. Don't have ways to talk about him. That aren't super mead. So that's just what this is going to be me being super meteorologist. He's on the best win streak of his career. It is the Throw good mirrors ride k. He knocked out bevan. Louis great is not very inviting. He's like fine whatever He won a split decision that he made. It shouldn't have won against you. Face who is not see any. He beat anderson silva in the year of our lord. Twenty twenty like. That's that's just not a thing like he. Also a long time to beat anderson silva twenty twenty three round fight. He would not have finished. Forty seven going on sixty three year old english silva and then the chris widened tragedy. Like this is on paper if this was six years ago that resumes dope as hell right now. It just looks better than it is. She's not a real he is. he's he is the definition wall. Tickets and sean stricklin. I really love mahar sean. Strickland like sean strickland is a. He's a fun interesting prospect. He's also a fun actually might be a bit of a stretch His interesting prospect in that he is clearly very good at fighting like he. He has composed game that works well in the current emma meta game but like his move up his move to middleweight was good for him objectively. He's blowing the doors off. Great competition like he won. Workmanlike decisions over christoph. Jaakko who's a solid ish and brennan allen who's a solid dude like this is clearly you just sort of have to say it's a step up in competition for him but at the same time you're halls assorted due to lose anybody. He could just mentally implode and may will happen on saturday. No the short answer is no. We're not talking about title challenger here if john chicken windsor talking. Okay sean strickland putting together a good run. let's see him against an actual light good middleweight. And if you're a hall wins it's like hey we we still need to see you. Beat somebody. who's who's good. Not not an old person who needs her tire or a guy who has been a welterweight until last year. We need you to be kelvin guests. Lem who. I think gasol good mind you but that's a better win. He has a hurt resume. So yeah this fight doesn't matter outside of to participants in it matters a lot to them but i'm really glad we have bell toward this weekend. Even if builds regards not great. Because that's something i can look forward to. Is this car. Just it just is what do you think spencer. What's at stake here. Is there anything that's stake care for these guys. I think first and foremost that. If i ever get into legal trouble the jed can help me with. I am calling him fast. As i can't. My one phone call is going to meshu his ability his ability to argue his points while ignoring other information. And just kinda leave and stuff. Aside to make case is amazing. He's got the he's got the charm he's got the drawl he just plays it out nicely. I reserve big dude. You're saying that you're riot hall. Yes year of our lord. Twenty twenty fought and beat anderson silva. Do you didn't finish anderson silva in five rounds. The dan middleweight champ. Israel out of sonya who wouldn't even engage with them for the most part just kind of stood there with us three rounds. Jam i don't care. He did do things. That your hall did your. I didn't finish anderson three rounds. Either he still went out to me and look much better than izzy did against anderson silva as for sean strickland you say the move up to middleweight was a good move for. It's a move back to middleweight. This is a point for me. That is like one of those things that drives me insane. Sean strickland started his career. Fifteen at middleweight is first who fights in the. Afc were at middleweight. Where he you know. Tough guys in luke barnett and bubba mcdaniel. Then he goes down to welterweight wins a couple. He loses three but all to really good competition and he's come back up and won three straight since coming back if he was just an eighteen in middleweight regardless of the fact that he is just a fundamental technical meat and potatoes fighter. We'd be really excited about this guy added to the fact that he's kind of a loose cannon when you put a microphone in front of him but instead he's got that middleweight misadventure and we kind of lose sight of the fact that it midway this is legit and if he goes out and beats your hall that moves him into that range. That is saying you've got to be one of these guys. And you shout it out. Calvin gasoline as the guy that you got to go beat as calvin gasol is somebody in the year of our lord twenty twenty one that holds great sway in this division. And so to me. This is it. Maybe it's it's certainly not going to determine the next middleweight title contender but it puts one of these guys in range of fighting somebody in the top five like this division is kind of a mess right now because israel out of sonya has been so good and because we've had sort of top of the division in cannibalize itself with robert whitaker fight. Everybody beaten everybody an ending up where we're ending up later this year with those two running back but whoever wins this is in the mix and they're very much close. I think it can be entertaining. Fight i know that jed thinks that you're ri- hall is going to potentially implode this weekend and think that he's mentally weak. I've talked to him throughout this run. He sounds like a dude and talking to his coaches as well all the stuff that used to bother him. He's put behind him although mentally weak stuff that he admits to. I had fear. It wasn't confident. I didn't believe the stuff that others believed in me. He believes now. I think he can go out and have a great performance. Sean strickland beats this version. Of your ira hall of very much interested in seeing what he does next. I think the stakes are i mean. I know we talked about. What's next for luke rocco. But i feel like the winner. This could fight lucas next. I feel that's the daycare. But be that as spencer as as on the show as you saw a couple of weeks ago. We like to dig deep. We like to find diamonds in the rough on these cards. Low key banger. Time you've vegas thirty three. What fight.
