It's time to get your m a fix junkies. Take it away. Big John, gorgeous, George goes, are you ready junkie? Did you get it? All. From the bike capital of the world inside the beautiful Mandalay bay racing sports book, you are listening to the ever made Chuck you media. So the only so that matters, and I'm your host gorgeous. Georgia's mus-, always is the devious and dastardly goes are he's co host to my left. It's the fight analyst, Dan, Tom back east producing. Hi, how's weaken who's good, Dan? Good. Mine was good goes. How was yours? Gabby. Great. Nice and relaxing is. All right. We're all in a good mood that no excuses. I want to have a good show today considering that we went into the weekend in a good mood. And then we woke up and found out that our main event had collapsed on what was already not a shitty card, but what's an upgrade from shitty. Heavy you'll see crappy an upgrade from shitty. Yeah. It wasn't a shitty car. But it was a bland now mediocre her. No, it was a so-so so-so card. There you go. And then we find out that. That Robert Whitaker would not be. I was driving. I was driving to California. When Richard hunter from the phone booth fighting podcast texted migos. Can you believe this? And I was like come on. I'm driving right? I heard it from you. I gotta pull over and thinking like what what because he said, can you believe this? We just talked about it last night and right away. I go. Oh, no. Who is it? But I did not think it would be Whitaker. What did he do? Because I for one I go hold on a second. They all made. Wait, we covered that what could have possibly happened. But I didn't think it'd be Whitaker. I thought it'd be on the Anderson Silva, Israel, audits on your side. I I pull over and I see that the dude pulled out and had to be hospitalized and. I was like. Wow. That sucks man because that middleweight division. I'm telling you have you seen that static. I I got it from like bond if someone else deserves the credit, please correct me, but the actual middleweight title hasn't been defended since Michael visiting defended it our unsuccessfully defended against GSP. So maybe I should be phrased that and say there hasn't been a title defense since then because remember Whitaker win away last time. Remember didn't wake makeweight he does he Tecnicas the title defense. I mean ridiculous, man. Of course, I thought about Dan, Dan's recovering from a hernia. And I thought okay, he's on Monday show. He'll weigh in on this at some point. But hospitalized how how like in his warm up or picking up luggage? Like, how did this happen? If let's say he did pick up luggage. And it was awkward. It was any more awkward than all the strength and conditioning did. To lead up to this. And I couldn't get answers fast enough. Of course, I called you. But I thought to myself well, he's off and they already agreed that the next fights the main event. So I have you know, I'm out. Anyway, I'm going to my Buddy's fiftieth. We weren't ordering the paper view. But I just thought I was I always feel good for the fans that are going to give in and that that blue man. Yeah. But that being said the main event was actually kinda fun, right? Yeah. It was though the whole card was actually pretty fun. Like, I think if you showed up you would have said man, this really did suck that we didn't get our fight. But well, that's why no pipe based best case scenario. We'll always be successful. Because when you lined up twelve fights. It's hard for the night. Honestly suck. I mean. It's hard for you to walk out of the arena and say, I want my money back. You know, like. You know, like few of the fights will pull the other ones, even the ones that don't have the bigger names. You're going to have your slobber knockers, you're going to have your heart stoppers hootenanny? So you can have your hootenanny his barn burner everything. And that's why they always do. Well, now, they have the caveat hate the main events off big sign in front of the arena, if you wanna refund the main events off Laurie funds your money, but come on if you make plans specially if he traveled far your goal, and you're just sucking it up and chalking it up to life. Sometimes there's there's a bonus for you. And sometimes, you know, there isn't, but but God just the mentally division like for so many years Anderson ruled it, and then once he got out of the way, and we had Wiedeman in rock hold in that title shifting, and you know, so really really quality middleweights. I thought that could be really really fun division. It not that. It's not fun. But it's going to this sucks. Yeah. No lot to unpack there. I guess is would now be good time to weigh in on the Whitaker stuff or. All in relation. Yeah. Sure. Yeah. You know? You know, you were talking about that. And by the way, I was going to jump in and says, it's funny big dick hunter was the one that told you about that broke the news to you. I always love it. When you find out about texts, I'm pretty diligent, unfortunately, it's got me condition and be on my phone about checking Twitter, but this one actually didn't you know, I got the same treatment as you. I'm on my buddy, Brian texted me. And it was just it sucks for Whitaker. And I didn't have to know. I didn't have to note that point. I was like I already know. I already knew before it had happened. Whatever movie that's from. But yeah, you know. So, you know, you go on find out that it was a hernia related which is weird. Because like you said, George like, what was he lifting? What was he doing all the hard training is over? And you don't even know you have hernias half the time, especially, you know, I I didn't realize mine, and I know I'm not a pro fighter, obviously. But I do have a ridiculous pain tolerance. I'm not seeing it as a good thing. In fact, it was a bad thing that actually made mind more of a complicated. One. I don't know what kind of new. Would it was? I think it was a complicated. Hernia, but of more of the lower region usually get him, the lower abdominal kind of by your growing mine was an umbilical which only happens very obese men and usually pregnant women it's really common because you're you're going from a rapid weight loss. And you're neither obese nor pregnant. No. But I think I think it was just from not rolling that much. It was the first when I first started here in two thousand seventeen and I went in December set rolling any feel anything. But obviously, you know, you post up with your core. And I just noticed a lump, and I didn't even notice it. I'm not trying to wax too much on me. But in relation to Whitaker, perhaps not noticing his and he's only introduced Souso. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And that's what I assumed that was the most arduous physical thing. I really did that whole year. Besides maybe some stuff on the military trip, which you know, we'll go on name now just getting. But no, it was you know, I I figured it was just from that. And either way I didn't notice it. I totally see a guy like a widower. You hear guys came Alaska's a lot of these fighters let let's assume they're they're wired that way right with the pain tolerance for one. But for to what was dangerous was the fact that you know, is I have to read before my surgery during and after for multiple reasons, I was and I'm paranoid nut constantly reading all different types of surgeries, the recovery times, complications, etc. Etc. And essentially the worst case scenario of any kind of hernia even get his windy bowels. That are not just protruding through the abdominal wall, which is a complication of its own. But when they get tangled. And when you get tangled they could break, you go septic, you you could die right? And what Dana White's, exactly, exactly. And that's what it sounded like, so my guess, and again, this is just pure speculation. But even awake cut going as well as Whittaker claimed in his. Team clam best way could ever he's a guy that moved up and way, he's not cutting a lot of late. But let's face it. He supposed to cut cut cut some water and rehydrate to make the weight, and if you already have a balanced -struction, and you know, so you see your body sucking in right? You're losing all that water. Then you're regaining it that would maybe make sense as to why maybe answering Georgia's question, I don't think he was lift. I don't think he's helping us buddy move. But he was rehydrating. Right. So if they're already prior issues, and it was funny. The thing about getting kicked that was the same. The doctor told me I said, do I have to get this thing surgery. Like, it just looks kinda funny. I'm like, I don't wanna have to have surgery over it. He's like, no, you know, right now, you're it's Pearson for your abdominal wall. If you get kicked it's gonna hurt like a son of a bitch and could make for complications. And he actually detail what happened to Whittaker as possible complication of trading with a hernia. So immediately wants me, we'll find out it was her hernia the questions are asking how can happen that was just my two cents on how could happen then immediately everybody jumps to oh village to the internet and the internet says forty eight weeks and some of you know, some some of it you'll be back to work within a week member. I was telling you guys I'm like well. Yeah. I talked to my stepdad. I talked to other people who've had the surgery I thought it was only I'd be back within a week your father had it, and it was a more of a orthoscopic one. And that's another thing. Not just the type of hernia hernia, which to just covered the how complicated it was for Whitaker. But now it how does the surgery play out? For example. My surgery was much more serious. Unfortunately, couldn't go Wisconsin. They had to go all the way in there. And so me out a heavy surgery of that. You know, I still doesn't look great holes. Yeah. Yeah. And and from from an and even mind was still under two hours. And once I heard that his was three to four hours that was a long surgery. Sure enough. That's why you guys heard there with complications. So anybody trying to already matchmaker Whitaker or marry themselves with that four to eight week time period. I know we like to make fun of Matt Damon? The Matt Damon was right it, it's it's it's gonna take longer than that. Well, well, I, you know, I'm not pitching in her own of that stuff. I just want the guy to get back in it sucks like that that happened to him. But, you know, remember there had been suppressed conferences, and all I caught was the tail. End of Dana white sand. Well, that more on that was saying the cards top-heavy that moron was not a more on the card was top heavy. And then you take a fight like this that takes a hit. Now. Of course, I also listen to the post fight press conference and Dana white said the numbers did great. You know, better than we expected, blah, blah, blah. But when is he ever really went up there and said, man, we really dropped the ball and my witty, right? He's never going to see that. So I don't know. I don't know how many people ordered it took a nation of you. Did we love to hear from you eight seven seven vite Ninety-three now in a few minutes, we will be talking to Israel outta Sonya? So you might as well get in the line. Once we're done with him. We'll have about ninety minutes to cover all of you have C to thirty four and Bill torn castle which also took place, but but there's so much to talk about. And so with Whittaker being hurt Israel out of Sonya and Anderson civil became the main event and let go said the main event was fun to watch. It was fun to watch. I'll give it up Israel Tucson. Got the win on all the judges scorecards and he improves to sixty two no in the UFC and. He wants a title shot. You know? So the question is will he have to fight one more time or could he be next because as we've covered in the last ten minutes Whitaker's kind of on the shelf and gassed them sitting there with his quarter on the arcade game going. I got next so lots to talk about on this enemy junkie radio show. But that's kind of like the big news coming out of Australia. And so we will unpack the card later in the show right now, we're going to take this quick break. You are listening to EMMY junkie radio on fight nation. Channel ninety-three. Stay close will be our back. We'll be talking to the last hour bender Israel of Sonya. Do what they say. Your life will be a lot better. Here are gorgeous sin goes just tipping off the Portland trailblazers battle with the Oklahoma City thunder on NBA radio series, seven Eighty-six streaming on your phone at home on stage. Extent connected devices and speakers. And I was just thinking goes I'm watching that NBA game as I do an MBA read and as exciting as dunks and alley youths and people getting slotted. Are there's a lot of people on the planet that can do all that. There's not a lot of people that can do what Anderson of in Israel at a time. You did on Saturday night. I agree with that. Did you see some of those kicks were thrown the those Ponta Elvis fast forwarding whole time? Yeah. That was something else. And joining us now on the hotline is the last aisle bender Israel out of signing. Who's now sixteen no overall in his career and five in the what's up Israel. Hi, how you doing man? Welcome back to EMMY junkie radio. I'm this chilling. How you guys? Doing great my man. So fun watching you progress. Do this middleweight division of the you have C? You are brought to our attention by a listener of ours. Lucas from New Zealand we call him. He kept telling us about this that had skills and all that, and and you came to our studio, and man, you're now five no in the and we're going to be talking about you in a title shot. I mean, this is incredible. You're right. And how supposed to food. Yeah. For sure congratulations on your win Saturday night. You got to fight one of the legends and the game. And you guys had a lot of respect towards each other. But make no mistake you were trying to decapitate each other as well. Have you had a chance to reflect on the last thirty six hours about those fifteen minutes how much it meant to you. And and how how much you enjoyed it. Yeah. Definitely. I finally have my shower bad. Of the loan. So yeah, it was as cool. It's still the best describe it was it was cool to share space in the off the gone with. And if you feel, you know, a guy who of just watch for so long hand had huge admiration for you know, what he does and to being there within said it before the fight the presser. Yeah. Say, you know, you got you almost forgot 'cause most people writing off and luckily enough, I don't really listen to anyone says listen to what the bookie say Costa my fight. And they said, oh, don't worry. You beat the sky easy. You'll be easy. And I was on my way, you know, him twice. I just didn't fall into the spider's web. What I heard and twice and those times I could have I could've gone in for the kill. But that's how a lot of people get caught in the web. So yeah. But I was at school just to just to shift space with them. And and if some boiling would exchanges. You know, what I think's cool. I think Anderson Silva, it was also an honor for him to share it with you because you have this trajectory not just because of you guys having you know, types of backgrounds you have in mixed martial arts coming from a standup background. But I think he could tell he's in there with a with the future champion. You know what I mean? And I've seen Anderson so fight, and he goes through the motions and he's like layers above everyone else. But in this fight, he paid you, you know, tons of respect, and you could tell pre and post that this was special to him too. Yeah. I felt that. And we had some words than the afterwards. And she let me know what's up. So. Yeah, I'm just I it was an honor for me. And I'm sure was off of him. And it's something that's gonna you know, it's going to be in the history books. It's gonna stay there. And it was just a good. Great fight a great five those on the stand. Thanks. You can see them fighting over foot look of timing. And just just we just made a cool. It was some cool shit. Israel. Tucson ya is our guest here on MA chunky radio is coming off a big win at UC to thirty four in Melbourne. Australia over the great Anderson Silva ticket his recognized to sixteen to no overall and five in the right goes, what do you have for the last of inter Israel. Literally, the last thing I heard you say before I watched the fight was just an interview saying, I know everything this guy's gonna do. I know all his face. I know his game. And as I was watching it man, you were right everything. He did you didn't fall for any of his feigns. It was like you were one step ahead. Can you talk about the process of getting to that? Like how much video tape work was involved in? How important was that? At the end of the day. If you're talking videotape work, they it's all kid like fucking years is years of watching. This got fight, you know, and I by the pay per view, if he was on the card as a co main event like US, you wanna one I'm gonna because he was on there with force Griffin. And you know of just seeing everything he does and does moments in there when he would show me that kind of look they gave forest with had moving balancing to life stance. And I'm like Garcia's full. I know how to handle that for example, when he caught my leg, and I tripped backing up as long as again. Nope. I'll all right here comes the flying me get out of dodge, just a war eject. So I did. But yeah, he usually guy that just you for me I've seen so I've seen so much in that. It was easy anything it was when he put his hands down and made me to hit him. It's so tempting I've done that before. So now. View on the other side. It's so tend to wanna hit him, I know four five if I did the counter with a cut right away. So definitely you're right. I've seen and I knew when he was closely than you put it on. I haven't had him running. I didn't I had him chasing me. And yeah, I wish not this other shots out of selected. What you know, that's an eyesight and I still enjoy just playing the game with. Long. Did it take you to get the timing down? I could tell on his end he was getting really frustrated with that there were times where I think he wanted you to focus on something else. And you would kick them in the legs. And almost reset him. He it's like he didn't know what to do. How long did it take you to get that feeling the fight? Up to the flow. Stay pretty pretty quickly, but was back and forth. It was always like a seesaw like a a battle fulltime sometimes it'd be on his side. And sometimes it'll be on my side. But most times it was on my side, and you like the lakes one thing has has good at doing distractions. So when I heard it with the leg is the one that they'd right when I buckled taunt of he'd do something to kind of take the attention away from the fact that I I heard, and yeah, I I wish I'd affected leg Limbaugh because you had a game faith like didn't hurt. I looked at legs after wasn't trust me. You'd be limping today. He he was hurt. So yeah, I. I just feel. Yeah. He played the game. While he's he's crafty cutting say fight attack, the legs a little bit more. And there's some other shots that could've done like a little that. Because my question Mark yet. He knew was coming. So he was he was blocking us quite well, so I use another chain of pick the Atma arsenal. But it use it. 'cause I just didn't think about it at the time. But yeah, it's coming. Man. Those are some big king king of the jungle yawns that he's taken their Goliath. Picture. I'm getting fed with grapes and stuff. Everybody's fan on them. Yeah. All right. Dan, Tom our fight analysts. What do you have for Israel outta Sonya? Well, I love hearing is e breakdown fights right now, and you know, even post by when you didn't get a watch. And you didn't have your shower at the time in the post fight press conference. I was so impressed, especially that that moment you pull the where you know, you fainted, and you've got him to bite, and it was kind of one of those. He started doing the kung FU hands. Like, oh, I meant to do that that motion was totally planned. But you kinda got him out of the shell Ebola. Let me ask let me parley the breakdown in question for you is I've heard you say before you admire, you know, looking at breakdowns and this and that, but you also said in the beginning of the interview, and I completely understand. Why why you shut out people's opinions about your fight? Is that something that you've been able to stick to is that something new something you've always done, you kind of just shut yourself in and focus when when the when the contract signed or how does that go? Yeah. Definitely win when my coats and you're like sums loudly bid on my faint. I made him by bite on my fame, and he'd like to the little shit. I'm being attacked by some Abe's hand that was it wasn't meant to do. That definitely was just a ploy trying to let people fall for that kind of stuff. Yeah. If also the for the fight like all his tactics never looked. So last this last two hours to you know, the tears the emotional Pige, very. People who have me with that. Look. Didn't get me to get me out of my on a my zone. I think. And. Yeah. Like she who. One of the question again by me. I just as far as like, you know, looking at breakdowns until you've cited breakdowns at that you like of other fighters or other fights. But when it comes to your fight your opponent or people writing about you yourself. Do you do you just shut all that down completely when you're in camp? And then the contract signed. Definitely throughout the whole camp. People like literally people all just take it easy on them. Please you my favorite. I'm like what? I fuck. No. If I had the chance if you wasn't down, you know, like as well when I heard and I was in the follow up. I need on the counter coming. I felt so I just then jump in and people don't see that. They just think oh that's easy on them. But no, I I have a sense when I feel is a is a strike them. So and yeah, I just didn't show Plainville big. There was a chance I would have jumped on him and all the face on the ground. And I'm sure he would have done the same. What? Yeah. I didn't listen to anyone. Listen to them when they said, oh going to run through you're gonna just finish it first round k o this. And that I just focus on my work. I just focus on what I'm doing. You know? So yeah, I'm not to me. I don't I just it. Never good to say. You are never better this. They you are all that matters is how you see yourself medicine me. This is just me and my team, and we go there and see to did a three peat. Is he you mentioned that shower a couple times definite not gonna have you break down the shower. But as far as psychologically was there any kind of moments of clarity any any kind of a pekingese if you will that you can't take away. Maybe it wasn't even from the fight. Maybe it was something about your journey itself. Definitely. Yeah. The shower for me is is the moment after the fight your way, your lower your thoughts. And you just you know, it's like a sensory deprivation, not really what you away from everyone. Because no one else is with you in and you just get to sit down and think and for me at Tiffany's. Fuck I'm actually doing this shit. Exactly the way I planned, you know, and there's some variables along the way that like this whole titles. He ask though. And other things that's happened that each of those kind of every bit of always been able to adapt and overcome. But yeah, for me this time in the shower after beating Sylva felt like a win the felt like I wanted to Bill the meat like what I just just just sit in just really going through everything like man a year ago, literally a year and a day go maybe that I fought in the UFC and five fights later. I'm top of the game. Last one for me is he's kind of a selfish one to be honest. But something he did site in the post fight as far as a standoff, it's been gift. And you said it reminded you of a classic anime. And that yeah, just happened to be watching. What was that anime and B is that a good animated start with if someone like let's just say myself who is really admittedly behind on that kind of on that kind of stuff would like to venture into that. Until now that so is let's let's put it this way north took me four years to watch seven hundred twenty episodes, and that's a lot of vestment. And now a lot of breaks in between as well. But I think just you just have to kind of get through the the beginning the beginning a little bit slow for most people's liking, and for me by still watch it 'cause I just knew okay, I'm gonna enjoy this. And it started to get good. Like, maybe twenty episodes of like each bits and pieces. But yeah, Naruto was it not just an animated investment. And I even watched all the fillers. I watch all the Phillies because me I learnt a lot. I learned a lot about just life jam is so many James and than anyone avatar is the one to me like if I'm gonna recommend anyone to watch Avoca all book. Anime wasn't made in Japan. Shut your mouth. It's it's. Avatar the let the last heir bender. That's a good one to start off anyone that liked it. And yeah, sorry about Jimmy that one is low of action a little bit animation, a low fighting, and yeah, I just I just like I like what I like. And I just express myself if what I like and just everything the way played out with so cool 'cause when at the wins, and I hit the rock depots. I'm sure he doesn't watch Adam able he hit the capos suspending of cost. Then I go Blackburn affects and craft the animated to show what it looked like. And man, it was cool. Just to see him standing there. This is cool. It was like everything was just independently just a minute the place. It was beautiful, man. I got it made. I see a lot of that. I saw at the end of the first round and everything Israel just couple quick questions. Here. We appreciate your time. As always you brought up something that I swear to God in twelve years covering the sport. I didn't even think about it. Those paper viewpoints when you brought it up. I was like he's got a point that money, just chilling. You know, it didn't go to Whitaker gasoline. We heard in air quotes will be taken care of. I don't know if that means show and and win or what? But yeah, what happens there? So once you said it and now that thirty six hours or so of past maybe forty eight have you heard anything as anyone brought it to your attention, and hates don't say that again, or we got you or we may have to think about this. Have you heard anything? Talked today. They get old Nichol anyone like literally related to settle the letting the dust cell. But when I see the curve, I know for five say that like this come on, the wink, wink, says the main event of the evening, I've been saying that all week, you know, so I know and like the numbers I looked that with the ones that you just the views of my countdown loves countdown into overall countdown a book about five from it within the care about their fight as much as nearly as much as they did about about my fight with still. So I feel like, you know, we went to the Machi fight for this evening, you should get compensated. Because we save the show put them in great show that you for the fight of the night. I felt it was a fight of the night. And I'm glad it was because it shows that they appreciated the skills that would displayed, but you know, that money just sitting on the table and another US you might have lost some. Cash 'cause of the main event, you know, falling play falling through. But as is 'cause business it wasn't on my contract. But so the legend of so he's already been trumping some of that would be points over the years. But it's my first time, let's told well that you'll welcome. Because if nothing Silva's fight, you wouldn't a select containment minute. And he's like, we'll Omar the fight will show that would have not like this up the saying, I'm the stadium facts. So yeah, that money just sitting on the payable, and it's going to end up in the US's pocket if I don't speak so. Yeah. Closed mouth though, yet said I'm trying to eat. Now, I I here's the thing at the press conference when Dana was asked about it. He said it did. Well, he was talking about the pay reviews. And obviously it's sold out. He said no one asked for their money back. So his own words could be could come back to haunt them. If Izzy where to say, your pres- what's up and the other guy puts up that defense like like Israel just said, it's not an his contract, but still things have happened outside of contracts before. So hope you're accumulating all that data Israel, and so you go you can go into that when you can go into that war room and go yo partner. This is the way it is. You know what I mean? This is my first rodeo else. Oh, yeah. I I've I've loved my relationship with data, and especially we'll mcmanamon Atlanta g see we've always had to go working relationship, and you know, fair enough they have every right eat that money themselves. They're enough. But you know. No one accident money back because they wanted to see fight. No, even if the quote unquote main event dropped out no no-one acts refunds because they wanted to see with fight which started fight. So I did my bit. I showed up to work. I clock in talked about late. Let me eat some more. I just wanna get. What's my what I felt was rightfully and not just me? I'm saying, it's me and Anderson together it just I he was a good dance partner. So yeah, definitely you'll sit down with them and discuss I look, okay. You want wanna buy rates? So I what can we do? Let's discuss. And if ends up like, you know, they don't wanna do it. And they're enough. But I feel we've had a good working relationship so far. So we'll cook to a nice agreement. I believe something. Yeah. All right. Yeah. You make a great points. Hey, here's a question for you. When you do fight Robert who's going to be the side. Will this be a time when the challenges the side against the champion, usually the champions the side. And honestly, you don't want dominant crews kept heading off and surgery oppo Sergio or surgery and the UFC stripped him. This is another one of those. Because I I'm not sure how many times now. But this isn't the first time the second time the love it. This is like ongoing he's hurt. He's out this much longer. He's hurt again. And has a fighting it out for this long. I'd love you can't hold up the whole division. So my my idea is stripping. Take the Bill and me and Calvin five for the real belt. Then when he when he when he's healed up. He's one hundred percent. He can come see me and challenge for the belt. But I mean, look if I was his position I could understand as like, it's he's going to be the number one, no matter what happens with the cost of the AmeriFactors, but a lot of Jukka rail local to Weber rubble, would it would be the number one contender some eating home. See me lays healthy and a it. Sure. That Paul for that. You can beat me your that coffin it. You'll get it back. It shouldn't be a problem. Wendy, you and Kelvin. When would you and Calvin made San makes sense if you guys had to fight for whether it be for a title or for however, the wants to do it with Wendy. You wanna fight? Because they did fight five times and three hundred sixty five days. That's nothing show. They'll try interim pigmy bombed us sick of everyone. Just it's like the interim things just like a little band aid. Like, they just thought on anything like no fuck some interim belt guys being constantly not making making it to work. So, you know, just stripping, and he'll be the number one contender number one contender than eventually, you know, he can come because I'm seeing me so Kelvin in can do I don't know. I'm I'm fresh. Let me just tell you that. I like all ready Addison got me real good thick around that jet that. I that was like like it was lightning quick. And before I ever realized that if I realized that there was another one coming and it hit me that fuck what? I'm yeah. I'm healing quick. I'm deadpool, man. So I got that healing factor. And you'll probably see me. Calvin pretty soon. But a, you know, all the happening see money talks. And like I said I have been doing of been going for the company I've been up in playing my bit. You know, I haven't kicked up a fuss to bunch. I've been banded crazy, man. I've just kind of act full fish, you know, so we'll see probably delayed at publicist later. All right. My man, listen, it's been over years since he spoke to you. So I just want to sneak in more. If you don't mind, do you mind? There you go. All right. We got we got the green lawn to see what you would do their George if you said it. Bad, but he's on the other side of the world. So I'd have plenty of time to figure something out. Ass. All right. Isn't how good you think? You'll be at forty three you Anderson. Look pretty good, man. Still at forty three liquid again. Have you ever thought about how how good you'll look when you know, when you're his age that ever crossed your mind. Just in this whole journey of facing Anderson Silva. Usually looks from saw moisturizer? I've a really good for the skin care routine will also genetics a my dad. My dad is sixty years old. He just turned sixty last December. He doesn't look day over forty three or forty four. So I think I'll look I'll be I'll be fine. I'll be fine when I'm forty three or whatever. But as if you're talking about fighting now, I don't think I'll be fighting. But I don't think I'll be fighting at that time. I say that now, but I know me if I'm still with it. I'm still healthy. I love this shit. So for me, honestly, I know I have the white person. Eugene we'll tell me will this time to to hang it up. We'll tell them let yo is. You have stopped that he'll tell me what it find book right now, still enjoying this. I'm just enjoyed it. And I'm soaking. They're all 'cause when it's gone, I'll miss it. But right now. Fook thing. But I love the perks. I love fighting, you know, gone on this from the so wait a minute. Are you can you think you're saying it because forty three year old Israel out of Sonya wouldn't wanna get wouldn't want to be in the position of facing a twenty nine year old you, you know, some up and comer now doing the same thing is that what it is. Or is it or is it just you want to get? Not for me. Okay. Look Tyra banks, you wolfing supermodel something I learned from her when she retired. She had a whole big thing is to watch his show when she retired. He said something that spoke with me saying that you need to leave the game before the game lease you because in the modeling world, you can get twenty five twenty six about to look older than they kind of like drop you, but she stuck around for so long. She was of the gave them eventually. She felt like look I'm gonna leave a Mike tense and. Yeah. To me, I'm not gonna let the game lead me. I'm not gonna be like one of these guys was coming back on a five four paycheck. I wanna make sure I set myself was nicely for life. And then I'll leave when I wanna leave. All right last question. I'm not late to the game others are because I'm a sports fan. So I know about. Walk. You canoe Akeem Malaysia on jayjay Okasha. There's been a lot of Athens of Nigeria that play football soccer, basketball and done. Great. Now, a lot of people ask you hate New Zealand's pop in you know, because you and your teammates did great out there. And there's been a lot of great new fighters doing well out of city kickboxing. But my question to you is how many great Nigerian fighters, do you think might be coming up that we don't know about? Right now you've seen. What's his name? Not Kamara was money. He's already be fine for Tyler next. He's probably gonna the first Nigerian champion, but. Supersub eek. My guy seems Dc Yousef. Yeah. He's how do the win. The US Ebeid is debut and Adelaide, and literally I was caged side. I'll tell you one thing when he was landing both shocked even through the guard as the guy was trying to block body punches. He was landing. You could hear you could a year feel the. Like he was sitting on this punches and just throwing on the front of runt of the litter on by people. Our athletically, gifted none of that shit. I had to work when all you so get this and that that's all just from dancing at athleticism. I never had that as a kid. So you when I go back my junior, and I'm trying to go back ASEP because of fuel home calling. I feel you feel kinda calling when I go back, and I go back to Nigeria and also guys there's some kids out there man that had just messing is physical specimen in someone who really have a best, you know, access to food to you know, to lie healthy living, but they just genetics weeks, and I had to work. I have to work to get that. I am now. You know, so yeah, when they come through and if. The double Nate. That's for the winter. I retired like art. Then I'm I'm about the kids with my jury the streets of you know, 'cause I mean, you look at it always happens in may and winding up they'll be like a whole wave of people at one point the resilience all the kids from the for villas, which is only to to make some themselves. There was working everyone up, you know. But next is gonna be kids from my German from different walks of life in Nigeria would just. Destroying and they may and when that happens, I'll drop the mic fuck off. All right now. We'll end on that. All right. Thank you realize on you. You are the man you look great on Saturday. It's been an incredible ride these last three hundred and sixty six days fights, man. Incredible four bonuses. This dudes just taking names, and we look forward to more from you fall him on Twitter folks at style bender Israel. Thank you so much for the time. We really appreciate it here on Emma major. Obviously be guys think so much. All right. We'll see you. All right. I'm big shot out to Chombo Josh for lining that up. That was a fun time. Right. Yeah. Catch up with his relatives on. I think we gotta take our break now. So why don't we just do that? You're listening to ever made junkie radio on fire nation channel nine three. Stay close. We'll be right back. Please let at style bender. No. You heard him on the radio show with at the goes, Adam junkie, George and that Dan Tomomi. Wow. Ah, blah, blah here. Those two dummies Georgia goes. All right. We're back and the reshuffle the deck a little bit still wanna react Israel to sign up. But first, let's talk about the daily debate for today. So without further ado, Josh brothers Garcia seeming. Recanted eight. Eighty duck season duck season. Whether it's food that's spilling great less filling case spate gabbling always bet on black red black, wedding, cluck, dummy even social media, Instagram. Instagram, snapchat. The same applies to the biggest stories. Giant for everyday junkie radios. Galley debate. All right, gentlemen. Here we go with Nick de as saying he's out for today's at junkie hashtag daily debate. We're asking you a simple question. Who would you like to see Anderson Silva fight in may in Brazil? Remember after his fight. He says I wanna fight including Tiba where I'm from and the UC's Tiba in may. So that that Carter said here your choices Conor McGregor. George saint-pierre. You've heard of Jimmy crew or other goes it's between GSP and other for me. I don't see how you can get GS to go that way. So I'm gonna go with Chris Whiteman. That's rather. I mean beat them twice, but you can kinda poke a little bit. I guess at those winds and not that Chris wideman at the end of his career, but he's been at the top. I just feel like we would all just be intrigued the night of it might be something. Or when we here we go. I don't know. But I feel like the night of when they're in front of each other. We'll go. Ooh, okay. Let's see this. So I could see that one. That's gonna be my pick for other. How could you poke at the Whiteman wins though, explain I want you because people back to haunt you. So explain it exactly what you mean. What I mean is in the first fight. You could say we'll of Anderson wasn't pumpkin. It wasn't fooling about. And then the second one the leg kick the legs nap. It's not something that happens every day. It's happened. But doesn't happen every day. And that's not my opinion. I believe hey, that's just part of the game. But I think a lot of people wanna see a little bit of a conclusion all that. Okay. How about you doing it makes it great case dismissing the condom Gregor option? I think that's a senseless money grab even in an era where you know, you could accuse certain matchmakers like why we make that match. I think that would just cause too much of an uproar. We don't need to see that George saint-pierre. It's up there for me kinda like with goes. But you know, I feel like Anderson has come back enough to where let me let's be honest. Saint-pierre all time best resume all time. One of the greatest fighters if not the greatest, but at this point of his career, he's picking and choosing his spots. And I think he looks at Anderson Silva, not completely done. And even if they come to the table or something I I still don't know if he takes that matchup guys. Jimmy crude I appreciate the character detailed on that option. But no, we definitely don't Anderson Silva being sacrificed putting in a young names over. I think we kinda fun fight territory. Which was a great argument for Wiedeman. But I will go other I will go in a different way. Not a lot of options. Most guys like handle or Rashad Evans, if he was still around that would have been a perfect match member. He was calling for Anderson's over the he would threaten to go back to down. I would've loved to seeing that guys like handle retired. We can't do those rematches. But I don't know how tight they are. But I would want to do a show who it to five. I feel like, you know, certain Brazil Brazil matchups are. Okay. This will be kinda legendary one whether Adam their career or maybe even like a, and if he's gonna stay at one eighty five then a guy like Hector Lombard, if you still with the UFC, you know, he's he's had I looked said better days as of late, but he's still another former champion. You don't have a lot of those guys, regardless of former champions outside of the organization or not. So that'll be my option other. All right. I'm gonna say something crazy here. Oh, so you guys need to tell me if I'm crazy or I'll leave the fist bump out as one right? Nate diaz. Nate yet is my other. I'll tell you why. Oh can happen. Crazy. Okay. Well, listen, I hear you. I think Conners fight that makes the most sense is him in Nate just lead to run it back neither guys entitled picture. So you guys figure it out and that trilogy 'cause it's a lot of money. Okay. All right. The one one. But if it's true that Connor is going towards Sironi once again that leaves ADS brother out, it's fun when the weather's are fighting and since Nick wants the party and the other one's left out in the cold. Why not that guy fight and avenge his brother's loss. So even though he I get it core. I know it's a no contest, but still on the streets. We know you see what I'm saying. So he would avenge the loss to his brother's loss. Nick could be in the corner and one eighty five. Yeah. I'm gonna fist-bump of now I'll tell you why he sold me on it for one. I think that mainly just because it's going to be something that gets a D S brother back in the play and say what you will about that option. Georgia's said, I think it's one of the most at right now as of now one of the more realistic ways that we could get a DS as I've given up on Nick after what we've seen. I think Nick. And I will say, hey, ADS one annot at one eighty five in the UFC when ROY Markham missed weight in fight with the one eighty four catchweight baby. And he won't buy TKO. I was like, well, he's not thinking McDonald's McDonald through around. Okay. Yeah. Are you baiting the older, brother? No. I can accept look. I've wanted the older brother to come back. He. But when he was not doing it when he was downright honest in saying, I just wanna party, I think he's to be left alone. Yeah. That that that young man figure out his life. So let's leave him alone. But the younger guy still I think lead to clean lifestyle and can get out there and fight. So let's get let's get in the fight game. Maybe gets the juices lawn. I've always said that NATO ES could have basically removed himself from Connor in that time that Connor was away because he looked so good against Michael Johnson. That I think he could have figured out a way to maybe get back in the cantata title contention on his own. You know what I mean? And. He didn't he wanted to wait for the Connor fight. Because it's the biggest payday but since Connor just keeps like shoving him aside string and along. It's like he's a site piece man that I think he should stand up for himself and go, you know, what I'm in on that fight over there. I'll fight he won't at the diet. And look he's playing with house money loses weight is hometown. I stepped in back to lightweight. I go you know, what I mean? So that's my other. This is the way I broke down other and GS p tied at thirty five percent. Seventeen percent went to Connor McGregor. Thirteen percent went to your the chimney crew. So there you have twenty three hundred plus votes came in. So we think junky nation the readers of the site analysts of the show for participating. All right there you have it. That's today's daily debate. Now, we are up against the clock. This the quick break. We come back on like ninety seconds. But in the second hour, we are going to unpack and really get into you two thirty four and bell toward Newcastle. We wouldn't bite you to participate by calling in eight seven seven fight nation office gives me fight Ninety-three. And what I wanna know is now you've heard Israel out of Sonya on the show. And he is at now he wants the guy stripped he wants Whitaker strip. He wants him versus Gasol. Tell me tell me junky nation. What do you want? Do. You wanna see that you agree with them? Or should it be for an interim title, she they fight and Chicago should they fight at the April thirteenth show that hasn't been announced. Where would you like to see this fight go? You know happen. What are your thoughts? Is he being a little aggressive is he not paying the champion of respect. I think there's some things that we can win on. So then it's eight seven seven fight ninety three. Let's hear from you. We will take calls as we progress through the card and cover the bonuses. And the gay, and you know, the wins and the losses self come on. It's have some fun on a Monday night. It's may junkie radio on fighting channel nine three stay close. We'll be back. Your one stop shop for the best, bro. Wrestling, MMA and boxing, talk is right here. Sirius XM fight nation channel ninety three her everybody thinks for listening to them. I may junkie radio. I wanna take this time to let you know about our producer Danny show. It's called popping off and at airs live twice a week. Wednesdays nine pm eastern, six PM Pacific and Thursdays. Eight pm eastern five PM Pacific. You can find the show. If you missed the live show, you can find the recording on itunes Spotify or YouTube the following day. Check it out. It's a lot of fun, and you get to see a little bit more of our producer Danny's personality and my phone just rang in the background Salter. Popping off with us in studio. We have Tom Haine logging dead. You got real socked in the bay. I mean, the show is very very you thinks it's very rough house e and eight knows stuntman hanging around everyone on the show just jumps in and gets involved. And that was my rude awakening to the show being chased around field by Newman, and then him grabbing me and punch me in the face in as a saying that everyone his when they first joined inches. Welcome to the Walking Dead and set in this kind of like just doing cult welcome to the working day. Watch live on the YouTube stream. Say wrestling highschool wrestling this Emma as the UFC, so those rules don't apply here. I know he has a point. He does have a point. But I think sit it out firearm imen- the winning can fight me. They were forged from the same bowl side. But act as though they've never met. They are the brothers Garcia gorgeous, George goes. So that was a cut from the press conference in which he was asked about wrestling. But I'll tell you what people forget he faced there Brunson. They didn't have to necessarily. They didn't spend time wrestling per se, but he avoided the take down you have to trust with Brad practices, these skills, and you know, gets better and better at it every day, but as far as you can never say he hasn't faced the rest because he has Derek Brunson wrestled, NC, two A, and is a legitimate wrestler. He just you know that didn't really come into play. We'll say so we have to be fair here. Like there was a run where Connor had had where we were like, oh, but he hasn't been tested as a face the rest of their and that was pretty much true. He really hadn't faced anyone until you got the Chad men, and you saw what happened then Chad Mendez, of course, ran out of gas and. Conor let him up and that was that. So just keeping it real there. All right. So I mentioned earlier we're going to jump through this. You know, the spike card, and we wanna take your calls along the way, but we already have a couple of people that are already somebody's at the batter's box. Somebody's on deck three people in whole. Yeah. And then if you wanna follow them get in the queue right now, man. Eight seven seven fight Ninety-three. Let's hear what you gotta say. We've already talked for an hour. We heard Israel talk to us for twenty five minutes. Yes. Would be a nice little break to hear what enemy fans think of discard these fighters, and you know, where we're at here in early February of two thousand nineteen right here, we go who do we have? I goes we had no g Marco from Waco Margaret from Waco. How're you doing? So Bobby not goals must have two trillion with champion because the first metal fi glow knee Twenty-one staffing fiction shingles, the sick of middle fight broken hand. I now this one of her bowel and seeking interesting testing Iranian. Do the book so thinking thinks fan in somebody's some bad usual again. Yeah. Yeah. It's been rough definitely for that kid. And it's not like that's on cat. Like, I I don't know why. Hopefully, it's all this out of his way. Well, I'll tell you this though, if you've been in the octagon with your mouth for ten rounds, I could see a crash in or crack Delvaux or something I get that. But yeah, is there's just been other things that have happened. You know, along the way that that that sucked and two of them had to do with him fighting at home. You guys think that people are being on the contrary that yes think that people are maybe being a bit too harsh on those things, you know, he can't help that as far as you out Romero not making wait for a title defense. And if you look at it, they were to, you know, separated by one year on the February in Australia where he had to pull out. But before that he almost had kind of two reasons granted he had an injury which at that time. The UFC wasn't upset. Almost was the perfect time for the guess, we can do this being risky as PR and Whitaker who had a had a fight already booked with bist being dating all the way back to UCLA. Ninety one ninety three already having, you know, a his rights there. And then when when GS p one and him not defending it there. I'm just trying to put it all perspective. I think that you know, like, hey there times where he was denied opportunities via for a title to trying to hijack your caller point. Mark. I did it. I didn't want interject though. And maybe people were being too harsh on that. They will sabotage with these title contender. You know? So I you know, I love the five with a Silva. He said he's on. I send the guy had they make a superstar. Hapag it. I little AC in. It's basically like giving my say, okay, I decide for forty three all out of his blind and see who has no fought over over the year in brand out of the top ten with liquid water photo. He slaps fi why should be. I should have me. When did the former something Michael dispense number three, Jack? And he doesn't get face a rap level Manto. Why meadow Jerry once he jumped at you when he can put his he's not even six I mean, the best guy he fought his Brunson. Well, you make a ton of sense, but allow me to play devil's advocate back to you. We are in a fucked up era where you're just the hot ticket at the right time. You get the fight for belt. So I don't blame Israel sign you for going out there and going. Hey, I'm kind of the man gimme the belt. He's playing to the player that respect that. I guess it put him out for like getting Justice and all the other guys to throw Akane cozy west. Split steal the spotlight. I keep what I was to get the five. Beside guys started. All right. See your brother? Thanks to. Here's what we're gonna do next. Never been done before. I may get a lot of trouble for. Okay. I listen to at the fights great show one man army calls from Baltimore just about every show. Love his calls. He has great takes on boxing. We love boxing. We're up on boxing us. We can convert them into an major he doesn't like why. I don't know. That's what I wanna ask being junk. Let's bring him on. All right. What's up? How you doing? Enjoy your show your show, I called the one time, but it's like didn't leave until now man we want to convert you I I love your calls. But I kinda wanted to get a feel for how much you like him MA.

If I if I can grapple you and get you into nice lot that come at you submit, then I'm the one knock you out for left or right hand or uppercut or any of those. I'm the winner kick. You was Bank. You'll all or drop Tiki wherever I'm winning companion on the winter so mission lots of love fight. I'm gonna fight guy all the way around. Now, you like Emma may do do do you consider yourself a casual fan or hardcore fan or dare I say a major. Well, consider myself someone 'cause I'll watch 'cause I always watched the match. How cool, however what I upset about what they were turned me off him. And is that I because I'm fighter I don't like to get hord wherever they opt to rest of all m may of competitive, and I felt like just like Kana McGregor comic records that don't know. With ROY may. We'll just because it was interesting because the money is outstanding money that he never seen before. And I feel like I got into 'em as when I'll start watching horse spreads. I love watching the autism that you know, what I'm saying. It's beautiful one hundred seventy pound man was putting them away to twenty five whatever it was getting them out one two three fifteen seconds. They were done and and not love to just from that. That was drew me into watching Bruce Lee and enter the drag, and that's what really started hold him inmate thing when briefly put on a pair gloves, and and did his thing and Elton opened attack at move in mind. So yeah, I'm up into them always into that. Yeah. Goes thinking and say, you're you're you're a success got him to sign a letter of intensive junkie and. And he can definitely speak on it. Caller. Yeah. It's awesome. Jackson. Number twenty. So like when he checks Jerry to cracks me up. All right. Awesome. Thanks for the call. I won't be calling. You guys if don't care. Of course. Yeah. Oh, yeah. All right. Take evening. Let's go to Tony in Dallas. Tony dallas. What's up? Tony. Guys, just giving you a call was some really good thoughts on the midway division. You know, we gotta think about surrounding the division. Obviously Israel has earned his shot. But it's going to be up to Whittaker to to make the final decision. I think he can influence what happens next, but, you know, honestly, Tyron Woodley and Luke rock older people that should not take your eye out of because they may reenter the middle way division. And this is this is gonna be the best knockouts in this division right here. That's pretty sure when any five. Yeah. There's some hard headers in their best best movement and best knockouts. We're gonna see right there. Okay. All right, solid. Tony. Appreciate you. Look, you're right. There's some people that can throw hands Kelvin gas and control hands miserable. Sonya is proven to be a KO artist. Although Sousa same thing. You know, this guy was a decorated jitsu guy who also developed a formidable all around game, actually, he can wrestle. Can you know, you can strike Kosta Luke rock hold? It seems like he's headed towards two five at least for his first fight. But these guys change their minds all the time until said the same thing remember who there until two. Okay. He's fighting house at all. You know what I mean? So. We don't have to bring up Whitaker Romero. We know what they can get down. So. Yeah. That that that could be an accurate prediction for sure for two thousand eighteen maybe this is the division that will have a ton of Cao's. But. A lot of these fighters as as I was going through them. They just don't fight frequently enough Whitaker's been getting hurt a lot lately. Romero same thing a little bit. He just. Only see him twice a year. But that's fine. Because he's in his forties. And now really he's just gotta pick off everybody else because he's had he's oh into against Whitaker rock hold injured and probably headed to five Sousa, I suppose I can't say anything about him. Wiedeman for sure has taken some time off here in their gas stoves been busy hats off as real as real sorry designer for sure busy branch, man. I heard a great interview with him. He was on with me and Ryan McConnell on Saturday at the pre provide show. And this guy was intense like two thousand nineteen is going to be his years. Well, so, you know, we'll see we'll see maybe he's right. Maybe he's right. Cost of for sure I can't wait for him to come back. He's the man cannon ear had an amazing debut. And as Orion hall still have some gas in the tank, I think so he can never be a kale artist. But you know, what I'm getting fired up just talking about one eighty five when I go through those names left out AC J shoe as he sees legit. You know what I mean? And of course, couple of the other ones that are great middle age. They just haven't Bill rebel tour, and that's like the autumn achieve one gig, Ardmore saucy. All right anymore right now, we have Brian from Boston. And Ben from New Zealand. Let's talk to them. Let's talk to Brian can take it like a man that's talk from Ben from using overseas. Call and from New Zealand doing. Chips. We didn't even have time to talk about this another one for United on the weekend. Now back into the top after Chelsea got. One. Yeah. Right now. Of course, we have time for you. Always we will make it a quick one. But yeah, bring bring bring up what you want to say. 'cause I'll tell you. What when I gotta wake up at four thirty. It's just me and my JR t- watching these games. Hell, yeah. I paid the price and we can take up a little bit of one minute at least two global United. They they got written off. I think Phil Jones just did a recent interview where he was saying we were the laughing stock. You know, what he wasn't? He wasn't far off. But now we are set up. We're in the number four spot or back in champions. People are talking about us. Maybe we'll threaten on on some some of the other trophies that are out there. And we'll see Liverpool man's their way out there for sure. But but still they're still FA Cup. Still Champions League tomorrow at noon Pacific, Manchester. United plays PS g. Can't wait. That's right. And then and then Chelsea and the fake up and then Liverpool in the league. So all gonna show as one of the eleven games unbeaten record appears G and as other two game because they're gonna come right under the, but 'cause we really want to talk about from the week busy the first that he was sick and imitate for it was June twenty thirty. I was actually supported department has jumped back you actually turns out of the same China's same academies me at the time. Teammate of busy. Now, you can see him some of the recent videos Johm was more heuristic in grappling are incid dot than is Netanyahu took it down about ten seconds into the fight. And then you spend a lot of the time on his back in their fight. But whenever we go back to the fee was super obvious. Straightaway was something special as a struggles was doing kicks off the cage and also stuff exc- ended up finishing John with grandparent from from the mount I think just before the end of the first round so ton of him and remain kickboxing ever since the two questions that have always hung over him and still may even Nell. The first one is you're gonna go against the most powerful restless and vision, and the other one was hell he would go against the craftiest strike is in the vision any foot maybe the craftiest of all time on the weekend. One thing. I wanna ask you this particularly to a Dan many times, you you've watched it yet. We know that China was able to drop Anderson we know that this thing was out of job Anderson. And if we're going to analyze those to end as we would say is he struck as far more sophisticated than those two. So the reason that they were able to drop them anything to do with the take down three. It does something else. Yeah. That's definitely something that can be argued in both ways, you know, whether you're looking at is e or whether you're looking at is ease effectiveness, toward Anderson, and that fight particular. I would like to think that the the takedown threats make four kind of that that surprise factor. And you know, they what they say the shots. You don't see coming are the ones that hurt you the most if you know, you're in a striking battle, and especially if you're a veteran like Anderson Silva, he kept his eyes open the whole time. He he knows he's not having to change his radar and reconfigure his muscles and defenses as another fighting. That's a really that's a really good point there. I don't think it's the sole reason. I mean for for example, I did I did pick for the fights. Go to decision. I think I'm one of the few people that might not have been surprised I was one of the few saying he's not going to run through them because there are way too many factors that we still can't even measure kinda like what you're talking about. The we have Ben we can't even measure them coming out of the weekend where you know, how much of it was, you know, respect for Anderson or this or that. I mean fighters can say certain things, but. You know, we really don't know. So so I think it's a great point. But I don't know how much of it. Listen to your breakdown you on the terrible manufactuer now. But in your particularly you sounded horrible like you're you're died with what you get drinking with relevant dam or something was what happened. It was the beers Brad van Damme. Now, I'm a mess with the end of the weekend. General sound the worst? You're right, man. I sound the worst on those shows I think it's toward the end of the week. And my body's just like they may ready to tap. The matt. Thanks for listening. It's good. We'll get off because Brian's right there on the line. But was gonna to talk to you guys catching. Great talking. Next up Bryant from Boston. Hey, brian. Georgia you sort of touched on how deep the middle away division is now right? It's it's a real exciting vision. I can make any division sound good. That's why you're a pro. So I got a I got one thought on Whitaker then on Israel. Right. I think we cut the kid break because. Ten rows with your L narrow although you'll rallies a soldier of God. When you find that guy, you're gonna take a watch health. He's just vicious those two kinda remind me of old school boxing of the caddy versus on just training those to fight for. So let the guy he'll up, and then he can have is pick opponents is you goes, right? Love to striking for me. I'll I'll watch a striking match all day versing out the graphic. But we need to see somebody put him in a body. Lock in put him on the ground and see what he does. And those restless and drag him out the water before everybody starts to them the next thing 'cause he's restless come along. And they they put you on back and all of a sudden spiders change. I'd like to see that before we start crowd of a guy chip. Can I say something real quick shot up? Brian. I'll tell you what. Brian isn't care about body laughter. He doesn't give shit about the middleweight division. He's calling because he said that God damn New England Patriots. And he's gonna throw it. Rub. It in our faces. Right. As he's going out. Just get it over with what let us hear it. Do the get ridiculous around. Here the championship. It was agonizing Jesus. Brian's have dodge gold goal championships and trophies on the road right now. He's having a swerve floor just to get to where he's going nightmares. Tiffin, three months, even works like how many parades? We're gonna let you go to you know, you guys are all right? Bureau from a hatchet t shirts run out of room. All right. Look, you know, he's been matched up against wrestlers. Or at least one for sure. We need to see more. Derek Brunson doesn't count. Not really I'm talking one of those aches type wrestlers, right? That just don't let go you into Wayne the hell out of one of those guys not. A wrestler on paper, but he's not top of the chain wrestler. I don't know. Yeah. He's a he's a all America. No, no, no, no, national channel ten I think he might have been division to division. One. Maybe even division to even if he was division to he's he's one of the more proven wrestlers. Great ground has got got good stats, and he didn't have the best shot attempts on sure he he would've wanted him to be better. They were a bit slower, but he did do shot attempts. And is he did show? Good defence. I will add to kind of Bryant's call 'cause I think Ben was touching on a similar notice far as water potential bad matchups, obviously, the wrestlers, and we're trying to think maybe Chelsea was in his prime. He would be an obvious choice. Emitted 'cause y'all is more decorated than shale. But y'all go out there and throw hands and knees before he really decided the wrestle. Yeah. And I and I think that's what Brian was more talking about. But I add this and the guy who's not getting talked about you wanna talk about deserving contenders guy. You can maybe say almost as deserve it as Kelvin. No, no is jock race news. I think soon I think Souza's deceptively tough match-up for him because he's not easily rocked. He can't be rock and knocked out as we saw Whittaker. He's not easily rocky still at let it enough to close the distance. He commits to his strikes to land and overhead Ojo read shot and his wrestling's really underrated. He can enter without even getting the takedown against his jump on legs and use that to get get guys down. I want to see a jacker rate. Type. I want to see a game in mind Derek brunch. And you think of a guy that runs around the rink throwing punches you don't think if one of those snake type wrestlers, that's that's in my head. Yeah. No, listen, Israel is a smart guy. He knows everything you're saying is true. But it's his job to get to the money fights ASAP. He's got to say whatever he's got to say. You know what I mean? But he knows it. And I'm sure he trains it for sure. But yeah, that's that's just the way. It is. You know? That's just the way the sport is right now. Good stuff. Always hear from you Ryan. And Josh Scott, something for you. Hey, hey, Brian. I just wanted to before we let you go. You know, you're talking about the patriots. I just wanted to send you off properly if that was all right for by you. And he's gone. But my still suck. We have one more call. Let's do that. Who do have Marco in Toronto? Marco in Toronto. What's up? The last call and I just wanted to add on add onto that bit. I losing all these interviews with Israel and towns, like he like, I I understand you have to be confident really confident and everything. But I don't really know if he's been tested yet. Number one by like, the premier wrestlers in the division like you'll L, and and some of the other guys, and I don't know like look at Whitaker those two fights against Romero. Like, he was he that saw that champions aren't really came in most by I don't know. No one scene that in Israel yet. You know, like, I don't know what you guys think. But I think. I think Whitaker's kind of on another level in terms of heart. And and like you've been tested Whitaker's been through hell like to no one else wanted to fight you all like Bing, kind of skirted the issue. Not nothing. He would scares the fight them. But Whitaker just took it on twice ten around with you all that guys. I don't know if Israel can could get through that like I dunno. I just don't know the intestines talking like he feet the whole division already. Well, it's fair to say that Whitaker's been tested you had to dig deeper for sure he's had the tougher schedule for sure, but I think Israel realizes that. He is glowing, you know, at the top or near the top one hundred eighty five and this focus is getting to the title shot because the guy he asked the fight doesn't present, you know, a wrestling pedigree or anything like that, you know, he'll worry about all. That when he has to worry about it. But for now, I think he just wants to get to a title shot. And he knows that if it goes to Wittig or gas lump, he's not really it doesn't have the fear. In fact, gas thumbs more of a wrestler than than Whitaker. You know, and ask them what saying as much? So we'll see I think what Israel is very high on is. He's got a lot of confidence. And I think he feels like he has the ability to stop take down or get up from take or never even let it get to a down because his striking is just on another level. He should feel that way. You know what I mean? And but you're right. All of these fighters have kryptonite, you know, and it gets figured out at some point another safe or hubby never made off who's undefeated. He's barely lost any rounds. He's just been a beast. But that said, I mean, you you could find many people in our sport. That would tell you I Tony Ferguson going into that fight. So even then somebody some people feel like Tony Ferguson might have something foreign, but we'll see man, but you know, your points are fair. Good stuff market Toronto. I like your calling is he said it himself close mouths don't get fed. And I think that's why little over the top on everything he believes it. Because what's going to happen is Dana White's gonna come out and say we stand by Whitaker. We're not stripping Whitaker and fact Whitaker's facing Gasol at so-and-so event, that's a strong possibility can say that and Israel will either have to wait that out or go. All right. Who do I got, you know, but it's his job to maybe avoid that and get the title fight because he allowed. Lie about the price fighters. A lot of them know that the price is a lot bigger when you're the champ and you get those paper points. All right now, you gotta take a break and junky nation. You guys came very strong with the calls. We really appreciate it. And we'll still take some more eight seven seven fight Ninety-three. But when we come back, we really really want to jump into some of these cuts from the press conference and also go this this card UFC two thirty four that took place out in Melbourne Australia on Saturday.

They're all available in commercial, HD quality and commercial free. So you can just buzzsaw right through at anytime. You miss part of the show all of the show, which if you do as a sin in itself. All right now guys, we give out some results. And then we'll go back and reflect on whatever you guys really really are chomping at the talk about. We talked a little bit about Robert Whitaker. We talked to Israel to Sonya. So, you know, middleweight division definitely has been a focus, and I don't mind if you wanna stick with that theme. Because one thing we haven't really changed it on his what do we want to see done next? I don't think we've actually given that opinion, but look on assign defeated Anderson Silva land of an ad in the communist defeated Marcus Arosa Mariano for Sean submission, Ricky Simone. Cheated Honey idea the decision there. You want me to belong looking Montana. Dela Rosa defeated ninety Cassim. Jimmy crew defeated Sam alvie some controversy there their way in can we weigh in on that share? But let me just finish the results. And then now I say that's done. I can cross off the word results. Devante Smith defeated Don Huma, Shane young defeated Austin our net Kaikoura France defeated rule on Paiva kyu-ho king defeated to Huto issue. Hara Jalen Turner, defeated Kaelin Potter Jonathan Martinez, defeated will Ligi Buren, fifteen thousand two hundred and thirty eight were in attendance at the rob labor arena in Melbourne Australia. Total gate was two million four hundred and seventy thousand and eighty eight US dollars. All right. So go ahead. And goes you wanted to weigh in on alvie versus who's Jimmy crew who has Jimmy create. Yes, I wanna talk about stoppage. Yeah. Okay. I don't think it was the worst thing in the world. But I kinda get where Sam. Lovie was coming from. But I think he also has to understand where everyone else is coming from maybe set it up for those that didn't see it. Okay. So he takes believe what I believe was right hand right to Chen. He drops. And then he's able to get back up. He's pressed up against the fan on your Mark Goddard in daughters referee, anyway, the ends up down in almost turtle position. But some of these blows are hitting the back of his glove. But he's just not really maybe hasn't gotten to that moment where he said, okay, guys. This is what I'm trying to do next. And Mark Goddard. I think is still playing off of him being a little wobbly earlier, and he just decides that I'm gonna stop right now. But the city and say you better defend yourself because I am imagine. He would he would have I didn't hear it. But when he goes in right? I mean, like this is fast as anybody could ever do it Santa LV jumps up and says what the hell are you doing? And it's not even one of those where you're a little wobbly going. It's not one of those like, what are you doing? Are you crazy that sort of thing? Maybe if he saw it the way we thought he'd have a different opinion. But I think it was right on that borderline. Dan. What's your take? Yeah. That that kind of wobbly thing that goes cited. I mean that happened Sam before SAM's pretty durable guys fought almost defies. He's only been stopped three times. The first time. I it wasn't until Derek Brunson. Just a few years ago. Right. And even that stoppages was Mario Yamasaki Sam alvie had issue with and was was protesting though. He was much more Wazir kind of like what go more toward what goes with saying. He wasn't. He was actually more moves. And he still kinda had argument there here guarded communicate to always goes was that his friend corey's house just loud. Okay. I didn't have time to watch it. It's like frigging five cards within one week. So your boy here is is is no time to rewatch stuff. Just just trying to prep. What it was going to say was that? So that's what I thought he was Sam was mentioning before. But he's been really vocal about that. He's really, you know, Sam isn't is really easy going guy listener was podcast one thing that he's hard and fast on and this is out of season for other fighters. I've I've heard voices is that he's one of those guys. Let me go out. Let me go out. He makes an extra point to the restaurants like the rest say, hey, man, if being internal enough to protect yourself, I agree with that. Which is why I'm with goes. And I don't think it's the worst in the world. But just as the rest have that fighters dressed don't have to adhere to it. But fighters do have a certain thing, you can say like, hey, let me work out of this position. Like me. I actually don't mind working from turtle and I'm comfortable from there. So for my amateur fight, I told the reference at hey, man, like I need. This guy was a good wrestler. My wrestling with shit, and then I was going to do little nog didn't pry while. I was gonna have to shoot a shot kind of go to half guard and try to work. So what I told the ref was hey, let me go to turtle. Let me work. Let me work. There might look come not trying to stall on trying to advance the fight. Unfortunately, he let me work there. And none of my tactics. Working. I got the shit beat out of me for three rounds. But the point was you communicate that and San makes it a point to communicate with breath. His last fight Antoni ridge. You're going to get up. Mark Goddard was in that one too. I don't think it was about stopping by the way, either I'm not saying any of these bad stoppages, but to SAM's point he didn't. You know, he he he wasn't allowed that and he had issue with garter. Because of that gets got it again. I I don't know if he told Goddard or told the commission. Hey, can I get a different ref where if it was too late by that point? But the point was is publicly stated his opinion on this particular matter and with that particular ref, and I think that's what's gonna leave a bad taste left, a bad taste in some people's mouth is because you had that and not only the same alley kinda get up. And now, he's not even woozy. He's actually seems pretty okay? Kind of like what goes said? But he is not only cognizant enough to argue the call. He's actually citing you know, we talked about this. Let me go out. And I I'm fine that at the and Mark Goddard, by the way, I think he's a great ref. Everyone gives them everyone gives them crap. When he says, this is Marlin octagon ulissi, and I feel like I'm to interpret like every time. I hear my gutter. I hear dropping the word because he's English. You know, any kind of has that kid that being said, I have no issue with that is gone. Any should have all those refugees themselves that being said, I feel like you know, that the two way street when you start yourself on the on the wrong, call can. Give you kind of criticism. And I don't think it was the wrong call I think it was just call because Sao Alvi was hurt prior to this. But the time where he chose to stop it. I think I think makes it look bad. And by the way, Sam can't I hope that's not is defense that he didn't let me go out. 'cause no matter what he says he's not gonna let it get to just means. Give me the longer leash. Yes. No of what of what you consider a stoppage. But even then I don't know that the Reverend go you got it because he's always thinking firs. So, but you know, again, I'm just a guy that didn't order it something's going on and just a quick point. And Mark God's defense. You could argue that and I gotta go back and watch it to your point, George, but you could argue that he did maybe give Sam leeway because of SAM's durability that maybe because when he was hurt before that it could have been stopped before that a lot of people are saying, maybe the reason why God it didn't because he was giving Sam that extra time and that time in turtle was his extra time and Sam didn't use it as well as you probably should have. Fortunately, I think sometimes. You're watching it. There's a difference between a guy laying on his belly flat and kind of covering up. And then a guy that he was he's still on his knees. It just seemed like any second. Now, maybe he was either gonna roll or trying get up felt like it was right there when he was about to do it. And that's when the stoppage came running back now, it's not like that not to that point. So I think it's fair I move on. Good point. He was little he was about to roll that. Look like something was gonna happen. The Whittaker Whitaker's Sousa stoppage that fight could have been stopped a little sooner that was Yamasaki reference that fight and he stopped at a weird time where Sousa was actually scrambling back to his feet. And I remember people in real time. We're actually getting upset with it. And of course, Susan didn't didn't hinted protests because he was hurt and that immediately quote the audience, but people were getting upset that to which brings it to the point. I just saying it's the time you choose to stop a fight. It's not that it's a bad stoppage or the fight shouldn't have been stopped. But I think this is another example when you stop at a fight at a weird time, it makes it look like a culpable stoppage. When it's really not could be. Well, it doesn't help that the other guy gets up and be any lives. Finance fire. Yes. Judges eight rafts fighters and. Yeah. Already commercial term here. Really? Okay. Well, let me just say this. The bonuses went to Israel to Sonya and Anderson Silva and the performance both. They're also bonuses performance of the night that one was categorizes fight of the night. And by the way, others have a problem with that. They may be right performance. The night went to Montana Villarosa and devante Smith. So there you have it. We'll continue talking about you see to thirty four when we come back. It's ever may junkie radio on fire nation channel three stay close. We'll be right back. I get paid to say things in this cool voice. And they get paid to be lame. Here are gorgeous Georgia goes. Billy Joel will perform at seven icon. Ick baseball stadiums this year, including the first ever concert at Baltimore's Oriole park at Camden Yards. Siriusxm wants you to have a chance to be a big shot and take your group of friends to go. See Billy from the front row at the concert of your choice. Must dinner at an Italian restaurant and a limo to the show for rules into enter to siriusxm dot com slash Billie. Joe baseball that before April thirtieth. No additional purchase necessary to enter to win. All right. So the guys want to chime in a little bit. They are holding onto something here start with Dan you want. I mentioned the bonuses on the way out, sir. You were happy this time with the way they were doled out partially. I actually saw a lot of chatter believe a Jon Morgan, we're talking a kind of behind the scenes a bit about the fight of the night. I you know, you coulda had argument that the the king Ichihara run one rounder was enough. I think a lot of people wouldn't have hated the Kaikoura France. Pot pie the fight getting the award because that was a fight was close. And with me, honest. I think pilots should probably wanted. I in many scored at form. It wasn't a robbery by any means. But you really feel bad for a guy like pie, by the way. He's eighteen in one coming up Dana white contender series wins that in another tough fight. Right. He in October guys he actually retired because his girlfriend actually guys followed him started rapping his girl at club. He did the mature thing, and they actually left the guys followed them in. Fortunately, I've only flyweight he's on a bike. He's fallen on a truck and hit him. He goes flying off the motorcycle sustains injuries. He can recover from the girls drug along with the truck, and and and ended up dying real super sad story guys depressing. The guy the guy comes out of retirement takes us fight over in Australia fights, this guy that's getting pumped up deservedly saw on the fan of car car, France. And it was so heartbreaking to see a guy heartbreaking for any fighters, by the way. I just bought this example up. This is why fight on the nights. Good. You give it to this close fights where someone not got robbed. But the decision probably could. Gone the other way and all fighters deserve that. I feel it's a strong point on its own. But that guy's background broke my f- in heart on a positive though. I will say devante Smith, dela Rosa. I'm glad they got it. They'll Arosa one she highlighted the tough contracts. The problem with that, you know, she's in grand cheese in a smaller sample size division. But she's like I'm knocking off contenders right into the UFC and being feted aligning. I should at least be be able to be paid like a ranked fighter a strong point. I don't know that it always works. That way though, deliver the numbers what they want to know in reference to the tough contract, though, what she was saying. I think I think that's sympathetic because it brings light on the tough contract. Not her not her division so to speak. I get what you're saying that you're right. It doesn't always work like that. But as far as tough contract goes devante Smith, we've had on this show before do he just he's just a character his breakdown in the post fight interview. Just everything how do you not love? This guy was him and Shane young or my highlights coming out of the car. And that's the only thing I really wanted to say, I don't know that hits anything you wanted to say goes, or well, no, I was thinking about something you're saying I thought I could they could have said that he wanted to fight as well. But as reaction afterwards was just kind of like, yeah. It was weird. I thought he had he could have maybe said like what the hell or somebody just kind of walked away. Whatever the point. I was gonna make was did you guys enjoy the main event? Yeah. Three rounds? Okay. Three rounds? I feel like we all felt like the better fighter one. I don't know that we all felt like there should have been around for and around five decide that I think we kinda tell where that fight was going to go. Yeah. The proper guy one was three rounds. And you hear what Israel of Sonya said he could go tomorrow bodies. Okay. I'm just making that case again where I don't believe that every main event needs to be five rounds. Now granted this was done on them at the end interesting. But weren't we all happy with the fight the good fight? They fought at a good pace guys. It look to banged up coming out of that. I don't know, man. I just feel like if if it's not for title. I don't know what they need to go five around. It's just much wear and tear. I didn't know where you were headed with that. Okay. Yeah. I I- cosign. I understand great point is taking me back to those those days of the what was it like leaving bist ping days when we're having headliner three round were, you know, throughout fights. And I couldn't think of maybe great fights this that. And of course, there's always the Daego Sanchez. Jake Ellensburg reference was got us into this pickle. Yes. There are those rare fights. I would argue guys that not only I co-signed with that point. If we actually take that. And then compare it to other back in those eras, those LeBron bist ping errors, for example. I I would argue that a majority of those fights left us feeling the same way. I don't think we were calling for five rounds back then. Yeah. I think I think there's only. Been a dozen fights where everyone collectively tweets Borek. Sure would love to see him go another two. Yeah. You know what I mean? Like honestly in the history of the game. Well, since that was actually an option. I think that's where we've said. Wow. Like like Melendez and price Angeles's was one that stands out if they can only go with other too, you know, and, but we really don't need it. And for the guys that are like the king of the ranters like Frank Yeager. They've actually fought like an additional probably twelve thirteen fourteen rounds at the same pay and. But more, wear and tear. If it means a fight more per year, less damaged Kimmy that instead they're really really strong point. Now one thing I wanted to say this is where I'm like, captain, no fun. Killington a little bit. Fighters they got a couple booze out of Sonya and in Silva their victim of their own success. But also their own promos like they keep talking about how I'm gonna knock somebody out. I'm gonna buzz right through them. When you when when you tell the audience that the fans that is it wrong for them to then expect it, and when they don't get it go, not not move or just sit on their hands or just be neutral. You know what I mean? Because it fighters kind of have an out fighters can go on Menachem out in the first. And if they do what I tell you what I tell you mystic MAC or whatever. But if they don't don't go. Well, you know, it was a tactical fire. It was tough. Sometimes you gotta appreciate the scientific approach. He's a professional as well. And again, but you also just finished telling us the last six weeks house gonna end in the first or that it was going to end or that it was going to end in a certain. Style. And yet there were times where the attempt to do that wasn't even happening much less the result. So I man fans you paid your money go out there. And I have no problem with. I know there's a lot of people that are out there. Like, Don, Phut them don't do them. Why not? That's what you feel at that particular moment in a what I'm okay with it. I don't hold that criticism toward either. Either of those guys I was just going to say, and I mean, but but I could see that. Maybe meat may meet navy more applied toward outta Sonya than Sova not just for this matchup. But in general, I don't think Silvis corden knock you out. Better. But it should that's like ninety percent. Casual fantails fifteen thousand that were there. I think we're hardcore fans and fifteenth dude, I've been a lot of these. And there's some schools around me. But that's how they're reacting they should be able to react. Now, what the fighters shouldn't do is react to their reaction. They have to understand. It's numb skulls. That are doing you know what I mean? But you should never be told how to cheer or how to do whatever. Because to tell you what when you knock someone out and fans run up and down high fiving drinking rounds of shots. Whatever they're they're having a blast. They're they're acting a fool based on what you did. But at the same time, if you're not doing anything of that, you know, some people are just kind of like shaking their like wool. What's what's happening here? There's an expectation and the natural reactions now, they're not throwing cups in there. They're not they're not insulting your family or anything like that. But I think I actually don't think buildings that bad. I don't think I don't think people should feel like Boeing's like some sort of an insult or anything like that. They're just saying, hey, the actions a little bit slow, and it happens in all the sports I've seen. It man. Even even like the patriots. If they play a shitty game next year in game one. They might even take some moves. What's wrong with that? That's just the fans. That's this. Today's not your best day. And I'll tell you what some athletes the ones that are seasoned, and they know better than they have thick skin. They know it and they react off it as well. I dunno manifest. I'm on both both sides of it. Like, I I think they can they have every right to boo that's fine. But I would just if somebody was next to me and just constantly Boone. I think dude just put yourself in that guy shoes for a second. All right. I'm thinking of Anderson. So when he was when he had his back against the cage. He was pointing he wanted Israel to come towards them. Right. That's what's gonna make us happy. And that would what would make us chair. But the smart play was now, I'm winning the fight. You come to me. So I understand that tactic. Well, it just so happens that this is the fight where it happened. But I'm kind of owning onto that one for a while. Yeah. I mean, although, you know, I I don't necessarily share. And I can't really we have in this fight though. Because I was to be honest. I wasn't I told you I was one of the few people where I was like I wanted to the people that were calling me crazy for saying that this was going to be a slower fighting go to decision because I did not surprise me one bit. If you read how I had this five broken down really really pretty much as thought. Yeah. What does that mean? Cuts in props. The both. Oh. You made your point you made your. All right. Let's see if we can get to a couple of these that, our producer. Josh is gone through. Look a lot of you know, that would got hurt. Let's just cut number one Dane explains. What actually went wrong when Whitaker? Basically what they told me was his. You know, his colon and his intestines had popped out. And they don't think that he didn't do anything yesterday. So they don't think it was anything that he did yesterday. They think he's had it for a while. And it's been popping in and out. The scary part is is that if he took a shot to the stomach while that was he could've died. I mean, he acute rupture the colon and you become septic. And that's that's not good. Pretty crazy. Yeah. Wouldn't want that it was that bad? All right now, we still wanted to fight on the Kelvin did not fight that night. We're hearing he will be taken care of. And usually that means when you've already weighed in you'll get paid your show money at least in the past. We've heard. Win money. But I think for sure on this show, we can say probably got taken care of on in terms of his show money. I hope he also got the win bonus. Because like Israel out of Sonya pointed out, hey, where are those favorite viewpoint? There's some money that also didn't get paid out. I think guy like sorry Kelvin deserves it. Now, you speaking Kevin cut number five, please on this one. It explains why you saw Kelvin gasoline with a belt on he wasn't crowned champion that night. But to the Hilton let's hear this one. That was who does belt that he borrowed, you know. Yeah, it was cute. What he was actually kinda like just laying down a narrative. You know what I mean? People are pissed. Yeah. And now he's saying now, I'm the champ and Whitaker's gotta come to me. So basically what he was doing was playing the fence the fence the fence because he knew how to Sonya or Selva was capable of stealing the spotlight, and maybe, you know. Running in a Fearance. And maybe getting the next shot at Whitaker when Whitaker comes back. So I all I think he was doing was just kind of like doing a Reuss. And like Dana white said, it was cute. I don't think it was anything for him to take too much crap on eases having fun and can't the guy have a little bit of fun. I mean, he just went through a lot. You know what I mean? So people really. People really big of a deal as well. Look, we have a lot of these. We have a laugh on the post by press conference. We're gonna tackle it tomorrow because we're all at a time, but junky nation, you can't really strong with the calls. We hope you can do that tomorrow as well. And going forward will try to set up some blocks where we can do more of it because we love hearing your reaction, you all are the ones that matter. Okay. So thanks to Israel out of sign up for his time and again shot out the jumble, Josh lining. Now. One up tomorrow. We'll have a couple of guests as well. And we're gonna spend some more time putting UC to thirty four to bed because guess what? Guys, we have some bell Tor cards this weekend and the UFC there in Phoenix on Sunday.

It's the fight analyst, Dan, Tom back east producing as you always does Danny auto. What's up fellas? What up much monitors the November fifteenth getting close to the weekend? Getting some fights down in Argentina, some fights tonight in Tel Aviv Israel. The only problem is on tape delay. You'll have to see him tomorrow on paramount and his own, but they will be happening tonight. And the reason I say that is because some of you like to punt like us. What does that mean? It means the bet. It never before. Yeah. If you're a Punto, you're better. Yeah. And therefore if you wanna bet on Phil Davis versus but deem them cough or Ryan couture. Vs home goes Ali or Patricia for eighty versus. Oh, the other side, whatever you got to get those in pretty soon because Tel Aviv. Israel is probably about a ten. Hell am even be a twelve hour difference. Shit. They may be happening now. Do you think about it? Right. If it's a twelve hour difference. That means it's ten pm until it'd be Israel's that's about the time when fights are happening or maybe even winding up, so what to keep an eye on those results. And you know, we're in a pickle here. What do we do with spoilers? Well, we're also a radio show that's live for two hours. In news is news. So don't get mad if we say something. But again, if you're wanting to play something you'd better figure it out soon if the fights having gone. Because they do happen tonight for bell or to nine. All right. If it's Argentina you've got till Saturday. Don't sweat that one won't be so bad. Sanchez, by the way, and frady are both. They both made wait. So we do have a title fight for defending against Sanchez. And that's always good to hear you don't ever want to train for world title fight. And have the champion not make weight. You wanna take it from them? And then if it's the other way, you don't wanna lose out on a title defense. Excuse me. It's always made kind of a good point yesterday. Denise Anderson Silva's thinking about that. How do you feel about that? Technically, it wasn't a title fight. He said something about under some new rules in the new rules are. Let's say Anderson meet wait in Luder, didn't then. I don't wanna title. I didn't understand what he was saying. No there is a new rule. Sorry. There isn't new rule if Anderson didn't make weight, but Luder did I think literally be eligible to win. But but that didn't work out that way. So it doesn't it doesn't really know. He wouldn't be eligible would. Yeah. He would. Wouldn't you know? 'cause what if the other guy comes in two hundred. I think that's hard to do. It had to do when when a Helder is up for grabs. But it's vacant. I think so. Yeah. Hendrickson Lawler had something and that was for the vacant p. Threw me off there. I don't know how to respond. About the whole belt or whatever I'm sorry. I'm getting tweets out. What are we talking about? The the Ed source said about Anderson possibly. How he could have matched DJ's thing. But it was because of the Travis leader not making wait it didn't count as a title frady didn't make wait could Sanchez win the title. No, no, no. It doesn't get it doesn't it doesn't count for vacant the one that makes way can win the title and the other guy just can't. That's why it was such an awkward spot. One looter had a mounted at the end of the round. Because I think that you're talking about in the commentary, you know, because that was a possibility the fight, and I would bring it up though, as far as does have a point technically, if you want to because the fact that, you know, one of the more popular guys, we're talking we we can't talk enough about computer Malcolm made off and his site, which I on a couple of those catch weight fights people don't bring that up. But they they will they will compare it talk about it. You know and try to talk comparing twenty Ferguson's lightweight run. That's one of the main points. I start off with it was actual, you know, they're all lightweight fights. It does mean something. Yeah. I'll have to out the research it. I thought I understood his point yesterday. And today, I I'm not sure that I do because take all that can't be a title defense. If both guys didn't make wait, let's take all that out though. Because just belt was never threatened had looter won, it Anderson wouldn't have he he wouldn't have. Have the fiber. Come the champion Anderson's still stays with the Bill. He didn't fight differently because his belt wasn't on. Yeah. So I kinda here where he's coming back. And listen to see how he phrased it again and see because I remember thinking. Yeah. I remember the lunar also caught up in remembering that it was litter. And other thing you want to know something funny. Think Luda was referred to Michael Jordan of grappling. Or somebody said something off the wall. It was on the broadcast, and I'm not taking anything away. Obviously got great Brazilian jujitsu. But. Luder mounted Anderson dance, it you know, what I understand got him off. He just bucked off get off. Like, I just remember like, whoa. That was pretty easy. Not that. That's not a technique. But that's usually usually you fight to get to have guard, and then figure out some sort of a sweet. Whatever whatever's just where he just kind of like some just had kind of an easy running like Chuck Ladele, really all he used to do. Just get up. Down. And he would just stand up. It was the weirdest thing. Yeah. Well, the point is frady made wait Sanchez made weights. You gotta title fight there. And if the opportunity comes the yeah. It'll get mentioned, man. I mean that that's just what we do here. Some other news here. Sergio Pettus story on EMI junkie just says I can be myself. He's fighting at one hundred thirty five pounds and fight. And even though we still haven't gotten anything official. While we're hearing is at the flyweight division will be gone pretty much by the end of the year. I think there's like three official matchups left maybe four because they rerouted Benedetto's. Off the board fight now, by the way, speaking of Ray board. Did you see he had? I don't want to call it a setback because he had a setback in that. He was told his baby had to go back under surgery, except the surgery was already a success. So that kids tough man Barrett act is tough. I mean, he is he's a a newborn still, you know, I mean, he's a little infant and how that's his fifth surgery. My man that that just breaks my heart to even think about that. And what that family must be going through. Ray had stated he was going to release a statement regarding why that fight was cancelled and it won't be rescheduled because Ben Evita's fighting. I think it's one hundred Peres if I'm not mistaken, and he said as I was about to do that. I got the news that I had to. That our baby needed another surgery angles life or life is more important fighting just there's miniscule obviously compared to that. But since then the surgeries minute success, and we all hope and pray that that's the last one and the baby can. You know, continue to with with his life being a baby happy baby. And then the toddler in a boy, you know, what I mean? So keep them in your thoughts and prayers because they've been through a lot a good guy too. He came in studio with his wife, they were so cool. He's into archery very very humble. Quiet. Even though he's a savage inside the octagon, but really nice guy. Sean O'Malley his suspension six months eligible to return March six I think I mentioned yesterday. Usually you saw NSA see yesterday was NSA see meeting they mirror each other. So if that's what they went with then probably you saw it will go with the same thing. And this guy will be eligible to return on March six now, the first thing, I do is think wait a minute. Isn't there a UC in March? But I think it's before then I'm gonna look it up here. If you go to the rumors tab, you can always see all the upcoming cards that are. Well, I just answered I just said all the cars that are upcoming in the sport of mixed martial arts involving you've UC PF L belt or Invicta and a few other organizations. So I'm skipping ahead here and yet it's March second. So he wouldn't be able to fight in Vegas. Unfortunately, seems he really likes fighting in Vegas. But if you can't come back to March six, then that's it. A few other guys like Danis to kick off and never made off. Not not not not not. It'll be. They got some success. So suspensions extended for participation in the post UFC two twenty nine Malay Cody McKenzie suspended for four years for submitting a year substitute. He did not show up to the NFC meeting yesterday. Therefore, there was no defense, and he got the maximum man for years that might pretty much end his career right there. I know that he used to be fishermen up in Alaska, and apparently he made some good money. So I don't know if that's what he'll return to or if you will find another. Other sport in combat sports to compete in. Because obviously he has that decorated guillotine in a decent ground game. And I don't know if he can and would or how it would work, but combat sports is worldwide. And I don't know that the an essay c can can. Suspend you everywhere. I know that they'll have some jurisdiction. But yeah, I think he's gonna find a way to fight. I think code he's not the type that I think is has aspirations of becoming a champion or anything like that. I think he just wants to make money, and he'll fight pretty much anyone anywhere. So I would see him just getting picked up on cards commissions start involved. Dana white out in Australia. I guess he met up with Israel outta Sonya. They're both all smiles in picture there. So maybe is he got a new contract or maybe he just got a nice Pat on the back at year one of our guys going forward who knows but that guy's been doing well for himself. A lot of people say he's. Not a hybrid. But he resembles a little bit of John Jones at times, you remember was a little bit of Anderson Silva, and that can never be a bad thing. When when you have those comparison, you got to pay attention to that guy because yeah, he's had pretty decent showings in the cage, but it was a mixture of his personality and even things like. Having Joe Rogan like you and going on this podcast, go all of that stuff comes together. And that's what kind of gives you that little boost. Sometimes where you get those fighters that don't really want to say anything, they don't wanna talk smack. They don't wanna they don't wanna come on shows. They don't wanna do this. They don't wanna do that fine. But look at this guy, and look what he's been able to do a year ago. We were all kind of like, oh, okay. This kind of might be interesting. Now, look where he's at. It's all that. It's that whole combination of everything coming together. That's put him in the situation. Yeah. I agree, man. A lot of it has been through his own hustle or his teams hustle. A lot of is just been on his own. But yeah, when we met him he came across to me as a good guy like. Even though he wasn't as famous as he is now, and it was only less than a year ago little less than a year ago. You still came off as pretty humble, dude. Likable Christie geographies versus Mizuko. Her Rotan has been added UFC fight night. One forty two in Australia. That's a recent fight booking. And then the ultimate fighter twenty eight which self admittedly. I just fell off the there's a episode ten recap. There every episode that's ever been aired. We recap it and. It's there if you if you've been following if you want to check it out or maybe sometimes night. Everybody catches the whole episode. We kind of do a great job of summarizing it. So I'm just giving them the writer some love. But have you noticed guys? There is no tough talk anymore. Do checking out. It's not I've seen a lot of these episodes. I'm still a little bit behind. It's not so much the fighters in the house. It's kind of coaches or just a little dry, man. I can't get into it. But I still haven't caught up fully. So I'm definitely going to do that. Because there are some personalities there that I think are worth watching. But for me, it's been more the coaches there's been a little dry. Louis smoker story there on him by Mike von about. His chance to revive is U of C career. He'll be a guest of ours. Coming up shortly violent Bob Ross. That's Luis Pena. He's dropping to featherweight. Remember he lost to treselle? No. Any really didn't have many moments when he looked good. I was trying to convince myself because I had included I'm gonna parlay all here we go. Here we go use your length, but he just never really got going. He was so confident on the show, and everyone talked them up so much at AK that I really I felt for that one. Or maybe I just didn't give enough respected Chiusano who also had a good show himself. But she was on a was I mean, he was kicking night inside leg and exchanging with them, and he looked great. And now he sends this guy pack in the feather way could've sworn Bob Ross or sorry. We spend about six three tall feather way. Man. At least penny. I think God it in his own head because he was showing his frustration during the fight. Yeah. And I just think he got he started over thinking things, I think because he's I think he's pretty talented. I think he's going to be good. I don't know that he had to flip as world upside down like this. Yeah. Connery Gracie is entering bell to own. I a lot more confidence that is hoist Gracie son. If you want to connect the dots he'll be fighting on that fight card, and again, I wanna give some constant reminders, we may. Or may not talk about Bill tour to nine because the fights. I believe are happening as this shows taking place tomorrow, you get to see it on zone and paramount at their normal time, but it will be a one day delay. But if you want results now than you may hear them, you may not I don't know bar. They may even pop up on the internet. So if you really just don't like him, it's not just us the compulsively spoil, and there's a lot of other spots. And if you wanna gamble then with the time change right about now might be around the time, you you would have wanted to get in because they're in Tel Aviv Israel. And I gotta believe that's ten to twelve hours in advance. I know that the UK's eight and then as you get to western Europe, it's nine and that's good for about what France. Maybe Spain or the Netherlands highly de his neck of the woods Austria. And then you cross over into eastern. And I think like I remember what Moscow for the Olympics. I think they were ten, and I don't know where Moscow lines up with Tel Aviv Israel. But it's going to be either a little bit further to the east from us or right around the same. Fuck. I'll just look it up or you could take advantage. If you're dumb friends, so that just happened to come over for some pizza who's going, man. I got a in. This guy's got a knock him out. Maybe about typically something like that. You don't wanna take your friends all lining all's fair, man. But a beer something like that work that angle. Yeah. Tel Aviv Israel time. Let's see here right now. It's eight seventeen. So it's ten hours, and I would say that anywhere in the world. If you're having a fight card by eight seventeen PM Pfizer taking place, but you may still be able to sneak a few in. You do the math on what time it starts for US time. Now, I'm trying to do the math in terms of has that fight card started you, and I think they have because it's eight seventeen in Tel Aviv is the main card, right? The maker. Sure, there's fights going. I imagined until you is where the fight started as seven. We can't even watch it live on dazzling, even the dozens date unfortunate home. You would think that they would have you covered. And paramount would do the the time. Sorry. The take delay. Yancy Medeiros is returning the lightweight and is quotas to be a beast. Well, he's already a beast. But yeah, okay. If he can make it safely. He's fun to watch. Man. You can't take anything away from Alex Oliveira Yancy Medeiros. There's just a couple of cats that even though they're not at the top of the rankings. They don't suck. And they're definitely exciting fighters. He's right up there, man. The last thing I wanted to say was Paul filter was on our show recently. And he said he weighed in when he was out in New York. And I think it's the skill set. One eighty three posted it, but then came on on show and said, hey, look few meals had been had travel at had been had. And I was right back in the eighties. So don't don't. That wasn't a true to Mark of worries at because remember this guys fighting he just signed on to fight at fifty five. California. Yeah. In california. So they're keeping an eye. And so he was quick to clarify that. So if you see a story there that comes from our our show, and it got a lot a lot of traffic four four thousand eight hundred shares.

Pulp Fiction to drink of that. What was it tastes like rice sprite? I am trying. I'm just going to be full fully open about all this. I'm actually now trying to get results for Biltmore. And I can't find them on Twitter nothing on Twitter combat press states that they have full results. But they don't have not even one fight that you can't tell me that Jackie gosh. And Djamil Ibraguim off that result hasn't already registered. So maybe it's a good thing. I don't know. Maybe I should stop looking for these. But like when I was more frequent on the underground. There was always someone from some part in the world that goes, I'll be their hobby updating post, and I haven't found no one you tell me. No one's in Tel Aviv Israel for belt or tunein. That has a connection to us. Six degrees of separation. It was that Kevin bacon. Seventy degrees. It's sixty seven seven. There's nothing. Do you know who that was in the in mixed martial arts who want who like a good guy to do that is? Do you guys have on? Someone like an Yves Edwards because he's he fought for a long time. And he had a he had a bell Tauron a UFC one and two run he fought like in Costa Rica for? Voda? You see what I'm saying? Like, I think you have to touch on a bunch of organizations have longevity and then also fought like different levels of fights. I think he was a leader as well. J pens, a good one. Rio. Shonen was a good one. Sorry minimum minimum, man. No, man. You wanna get guys with fought in a lot of different divisions because then it's easy to bridge gaps. But Penn though, he only envy, the tour Belfort is another one, and he he fought like he fought Lodo didn't he? Oh, I know. Now, you can bridge to convert a lie or. Uriel Tara for a lower weight classes, your y'all cantatas got guys who peered up as have appeared on one the one seventy way class in the US within the last five years and all the way down to like flyweights. I think a lot of fights guitar. I believe so. Yeah. Do you wanna play that game? I'll give you a name. You guys bridge them all the way to the other name. How many degrees we get seven seven seven. Oh, yeah. Slam dunk, Yuri Alcantara and bridge him to be toward Belford. All right. Let me a second here. I think Marcel may have come through with both. I you ought to look I got to do that. But you can look and Jerry all contra and you want him to re to he's gotta reach Vitor Belfort and seven moves. Okay. So I'm looking at Yuri right now. Okay. Well, this was your boy, Dan, do you wanna do or do you want me to do it? You can go. Okay. I'm looking at your all contra right now and the first link I would do is I'm gonna go to Ricardo lamas because that gets me Ono marine. Cisco turn Aldo that gets me to fifty five. Now, I'm gonna look if I turn Aldo. He's got a bunch of people, and I'm gonna go to. So that's one move. Right. That's one move me. Write that down. You went to turn Aldo. Yeah. All that doesn't fucks around fucked up. Oh, here we got Madera Madera dabbled in welterweight. Okay. And also have the option of Felder, but I'm going to go with Medeiros. I think he's had more fights. And remember he was a heavy kid too. So if I get any of those and so now after Madero I'm gonna go to. Oh, boy, I'm gonna pick the wrong guy. I'm gonna go to Erick Silva think now. No, that's kind of. Well, don't help me out. Oh, well, I'm not. I'm not like trying to read against you. You're right. You're right. That that's a good one. Okay. So now, I'm at Cerrone. That's three three degrees. Good. I got to get to Vitor to. I know I'm going to do it. Okay. So now after Surani he's fought Lawler and lawler's dabbled at middleweight. So here we go. All right. That's fourth move forth and Lawler fonts. You don't want to help right? No, okay. All our house. I'm going to go to Matt Linlin Linlin fought veto got ice by how many moons was. So you got to Lynch. So you did it in five moves. I did it in four did you? But I did. If you use my hint, I said welterweight he's fought welterweight spot in the who was the well to this guardian, Raj. Scotty on Dr fought Bristol, maroon day Bristol, Monday hun, although Sousa and all this is a thousand four four five. Oh, he did. Fight belfer. Yeah. No shit. Good job. Okay. Well, there you go. This was initially. I think what you wanna do those stump someone with a flyweight. Well, what would then send them to a heavyweight? Oh favorite. How we were going to do. This was. Do you remember when we did insert coins, we were gonna match to people and just kind of like, what is it family feud, and then just give them to give him a fighter and just let them go and see how fast we can get there the quickest that's how we were going to do that junkie gathering one time. I didn't know that give me another one. All right. Let's let's click much Marcel from Houston launching once you go. Can you get from your Araya Faber to Brock listener? Easily. All right. You're rial favor to Bagua and I get seven moves. I did it in five and Dan didn't four for the other one. Yeah. All right. Let's see here favor. Dabbled favorite Eisner. You said. All right favor. And we go earlier in the career earlier, although he did fight Edgar in anchor fought a lot of fifty five. So that might be my go right there. I just did it in six if you want to cheat and use my scale, although this one I love that one attached to Charles Bennett. All right, Charles, the Vanderlei. Vanderlei? Charles to. I gotta move up in weight here. That that that's not working out for music. Holy shit. I'm gonna try Bangladesh wig because I know that gets me to a solid welter. All right. But the two moves you didn't six damn. Yeah. Yeah. So we'll go from. The coach all the way to. The following the following. Oh, BJ Penn. BJ pans going to give me up there is to lie Oto much ITO. All right. Couple pass. Now, they're from him. How many moves is? That's your fourth move. I mean, it's pretty obvious here at this point. Right, Dan, Dan, did it and six so I have to this is my fourth move. Now that was your fourth. You went Crazy Horse to Ludwig to pen to Machida. Also, all I can do. I think you only have one one one moon. Yours is more creative. So I'll give you a lot creative just tour listener. Yeah. Okay. How did you do yours? Dan, Stu favorite Al Qatar repeat the steps that you get the Belfour. Now, you go Belford mature and toward listener. Okay. All right. So cheated. I just use the same same format. So I can't I can't put my chest. I think we have to do the last break. But you know, what let me click this link just real quick how stupid are we tapa more than likely the one that'll be able to help us out. All right. I might have some results hold on him. And look at this. I don't care about spoilers. And I guess you guys have the choice because you're here with me. But let's see here. Yeah. They are posting them here. All the way to that Connery Gracie guy. He's Gracie son. He won. I think you're okay with knowing that right? And then we progress here it looks like they're they're not at the main card yet. So I still don't see a result for baby fate or he's on the guard. Cindy, Dan bois, and so on thank you Marcel from Houston, and I can't believe typology. Yeah. How did we not think of them were idiots? Okay. Let's take a break. It's junkie radio on fire nation channel three stay close. And we'll be right back with those smoker.

Let's get to our first guest of the day. The we smoke. Oh, he's back in the folks, he'll be fighting Sumer Dr. So what does Ari? So did you that's his first name his last name? He's a Chinese fighter whose Aidan one and smoker sneaky little bastard. Many went out in one three fights ever since parting ways with the U of C. So that's why he's back in the game, man. He's gone three and also far in two thousand eighteen he's looking possibly go four. No, what's up Lewis? Good job man with what the three wins in two thousand eighteen. Thank goodness. Thank god. You didn't really make much noise about these either. I took your cut like a man, and you went out there. You know, this was late two thousand seventeen and then boom you went to work in April, June October. So you space them out all finishes, very impressive. And you got the attention of the matchmaker, man. Really really congrats to you not many fighters would be able to bounce back like that. So quickly. Yeah. Thanks on. You know, I I went to work on moved out here training, Colin, and you know, they just put me to work. They wanted to put my head knows the grindstone. And I just I did it. I did the work. The hardest. What was the hardest part about fighting for the youth? See, and then no longer fighting for the U of C was it just go back to kind of like an ego thing or or the money or can you point to anything in particular? Honest, usually the money's a big thing. And like. The goal is to fight for the USC. You know, and it's like. We all do this like old for me part of it was like supporting my daughter, you know, eating ensure she Tara financially for her future. All trying to provide a lifer. Fighting or just barely break. Even or even lose money on Mogo showed. That's pretty disheartening. You know, you don't really want to see that. In your Benny, you're like man, I need like I need to call for this girl ID to get her light health insurance and stuff, and I'm over here losing money doing this stuff. You know, kinda kinda like emotionally like, it messes with you, you know, you you feel like you're going for a little bit. You don't your look about? I hope he's off, you know. Were you close to just looking for a full-time job? And if so what would you be doing if you weren't fighting? Yeah. Do those definitely listening to that? I think it'll be like a firefighter or a cop or something like I dunno. Public service job because you know, they have good benefits in whatever. But yeah, I I was pretty close to that point. But a backyard say union wasn't really have it. She was like, no, you're not gonna you're not gonna like it. I know you use bullshit radio. So. Great the Jeter support and does your daughter live with you in California or back in Hawaii. She's here right now. She's asleep run though. Very cool. All right. Well, that's awesome. Man. All this is sounding good to me. You got this fight coming up in China. Versus how I don't know if you can beat me at this pronounce his name, but it looks like similar sewer Desiree sumo Jari England dodge does with us. Tell me about that guy. I'm coming clean here. I don't know much other than he seems to have an impressive record Chinese, and you're fighting in China, so therefore advantage to him in terms of travel and all that. But what have you been able to dig up on them? Not too much on one video just first bite of beating the crap butter sundae for like two minutes, then not have like a flying knee knock out. So I can't really too much. Yeah. All right, Louis smoker. Our guest here on junkie radio. He'll be fighting here in about why foof two weeks, man. That's things creeping on lesson that nine days, you're going to be taken off pretty soon. Right to Beijing. China. I leave tomorrow, dude. Yeah. So we just conscious. All right. Yeah. Thank you very much for the complete other side of the world and stuff, you know. So I gotta go out there early get adjusted to like the time zone change and all of that. Right. Okay. Let me turn it over to the guys here goes whatever Lewis Mogo Lewis as far as the fight outside of the U of CDs. Last three. What would you say is the biggest lesson that you learned inside of the fights? You don't take anything for granted? Try to go out there and win every time inside down to a fight. You know, I've just I've been working hard. Keep funding study my opponent. You know? Trying to be confident try not to second guess much though. It just you know, like. Grinding dude, just working hard. I know that you you've mentioned before on our show that you you cut the drinking now, and you feel great about that is that something that you've kind of fallen into a groove now, and you've just gotten used to it. Or is it kind of still a daily struggle for you? Good is. But some days, I don't even care relate at all. Specially like Saturday Sunday morning when I wake up, and I'm not hung over at all all this nights. But otherwise, it'd be years ago. Great. But I don't know every now and then hanging out with your friends. She goes to a bar, whatever you wanna drink a little. But you know, I know that it's not for me. How long has it been since you've been dry? January almost a year. Congratulations, man. All right. Let's turn it over to our fight analysts Dan Lewis smoke. Hey, louis. I was tracking your fights outside the UFC and seeing that, you know, you are still competing at flyweight for the most part. This fights bantamweight and your opponent from what from the looks of it looks like he's used to competing at flyweight to have you been already kind of feeling some of the benefits of moving up to one thirty five. And I take it that this is going to be a permanent move. What's your what's your outlook on that? As far as re-positioning your body, if assuming you're doing that. Well, I wanna see how this goes. But I'm pretty sure if I get this word, and I'm gonna be moving up to thirty five as far as like target up to put on at least five to ten pounds. Like core muscle. Pretty quickly. I got my core easy hoping the out with that. But you can't conditioning. So this by we can't really do anything. Just because of how short notice it is. I mean, I was working already. But all all we can really do is burn out your cardio right now. That's all we did doing. But you know, uh soon as we get back to work on putting on some muscle. You know, I feel like I can do it. I'm pretty much like you. Keep my weight down to be able to compete. Sei wait up pretty much interested like the entire entire time. I'm like not intriguing just to keep my weight, mostly on solid. I'm on a weight, especially with lifting, but you know, as far as benefit I'm just I'm happy to not have to cut all that. We you know, let's by doing maybe fifteen pounds. You know, normally I'm doing around twenty five. So it's a really big different for me. And you know, I'm hoping not be super depleted still have muscle all my frame. I'm not drip down to like the bare minimum. You know what I mean? So I'm just I'm hoping it'd be faster quicker more explosive. You know, have better reaction. Got got you got you. And just kind of staying with bantamweight moving on from the flyweight theme. Obviously, you know, you're grateful to be back and whatnot. But obviously, I I would argue this could be maybe a healthier move for someone like yourself. You're five nine, you know, for for crying out loud. I gotta imagine though those cuts were rough. But for for other guys, maybe were, you know, more well placed or well suited for the division. I guess do you have any opinion as far as the future as far as that goes, you know? A other flyweights, whether you know, the friends former former opponents of yours, do you have any kind of outlook on that? Because I think this is all kind of taken everybody by storm. You know, what I'm saying as far as Jesse? Gnawed kind of like, I think it's catching a lot of people by surprise. I mean for some of the shorter do that are relic five four. So I mean, twenty five is probably where they have to be framing. But I mean, I guess you can go to Japan or go to go to one single blur. And. Try to get paid. Do you? Yeah. Louis is they're going to be a big old thanksgiving waiting for you when you come back because I I realized here you're gonna miss out. Yeah. Of giving and stuff like parents come over. I'm not sure I'm just I focused on the fight right now. But I'm hoping eat some good food. After my mom makes them Bob old. Well, what does it read just the bread from scratch yet? It's just brandishing makes it from scratch like need though. Like in it, everything, and it's so good like I could sell the people would buy it is just bread. Crazy. I can dig it man because for thanksgiving that those are our roles as we have Hawaiian rolls. But it sounds like that's kind of what you're describing except from scratch. Yeah. Pretty much. All right. All right, man. Well, listen, we're really really ecstatic for you. Congratulations ongoing almost a year with not having had a drink the two thousand eight he gone three with three finishes. That's awesome. Having you back in the that's awesome. And it sounds like you're in a good frame of mind in your give a reason to fight, you know, not just for yourself. Now, your little daughter, and you sound very responsible talking about, you know, already forecasting those college years. So that's great, man. That's great to see you all growing up and maturing, and we're really stoked for you. You know, it's a reality. Check getting cut from the York. I'm trying to do everything. Right. You know, trying hard. Yeah. I hear you brother. All right whatever's left of camp. I hope you get through it, you know, with no injuries. And hope you have a safe safe voyage to Beijing. China and good luck on November twenty fourth will definitely be tuning in. Thank you guys. Thank you for your ever did. All right. Take care. We'll see you buddy. That is Louis smoker. Folks, he'll be fighting at UC fight night. One forty one blades versus in Ghana to that's on November twenty fourth. That is actually. UFC fight Pasho that starts at three AM eastern. So let me set the table for what that really sounds like the twenty fourth is a Saturday. That means us west coasters. We gotta wake up at midnight on that Saturday to watch the first fight, which is our guy here Lewis smoker versus Suma Jari Jari what the fuck did he say some Marjorie? Sumo desiree. So what you sorry that dude? Sue Mutu suicide to Marjorie. Yeah. You have to wake up right at midnight as Friday's ending and Saturday starting that's us to catch that I fight on the east coast, easy, Saturday three AM wake up and the main card if you're just a snob and don't want to watch the prelims then you need to start at six thirty AM eastern three thirty AM Pacific. So it's going to be a pretty cool weekend with all the football and food and all that. And then some fights. Hey, this is this is the toughest one for me. I've done this one before. And it's so hard to stay up versus like. Yeah. Like versus pride where remember pride would start like about thirty midnight. I could roll through that that way. But this one usually start to get a little bit of a nap or something and you wake up, and you do it was so tough. I did I did Shanghaied last year. I I like doing it because I was. A nerd like. I was like even like I was even able to get the nod because I'm familiar with Chinese culture and music, and even like what these guys were walking out to earning out on. But I don't blame anybody for not the dangerous part about these ones are trying to stay up for them as they usually put these cards right in the middle of these crazy UFC stretches and right now we're in the biggest one they do all year. They all say that big one for the end of the years that car kind of gets swallowed a lot of times between the killer for me on these is when they don't when there's too much space in between fights. Then that's when you you're just kind of fat or some right? Well, not eight eastern. Yeah. You're right, man. That's a tough one. Well, she it's the same thing. You just talked about midnight. It's like pride except the first fight isn't fucking. Whoever says rampage. We gotta we gotta slowly warm up. We like smoke. Oh, he's been in our studio. So we'll be at home main card if you do main card, it's tough. I like Kevin Holland. But then after smoke on Holland, I don't know much about the other guys. I'm hanging in there. I remember Jessica Aguilar. Back in the day. And then we get the shod Coulter in. But yeah, it's a struggle man with some of these fights to get to the main card, but there you have it, folks. That's Louis mocha one of three guests today James Vick Carlos Silva, joining us in the second hour. The. Says what in January it'll be one whole year? No drinking. But can you tell us before he stopped drinking? So he must've went on and off on and off this one sounds like it's been straight dry since since January. Can you tell a difference in him though? Well, I can. And it's not to say that like before. I don't. In here. Like messed up. I've never heard seems more focused focused ya. But he's still seemed like he just woke up. We're just starting out his morning like I didn't hear a pep in his voice. I guess. But you know, you could tell I think the little baby was in the background, maybe more responsible. Yeah. Maybe it's just he's juggling juggling things and getting through life, man. All right smoke will give me followed on Twitter at last samurai. You have see I'll still never forget. The first time. I saw Lewis smoker. What stood out to me? In fact. I'll just look at the fire. Where was she close the window? Now, I'm curious here. This is he's got some underrated jams, by the way, when we're talking about flyweight, Pfizer, finishes, even. Yeah. It was. He had ten fights. If I'm not mistaken. He won one lost one one one one four and loss for you know, if he had kinda just juggled those like win-loss win-loss win-loss he wouldn't have gotten cut. It was the foreign a row that did it. And look at the BC faced Marino Borg, Elliott Niccolo all ranked fighters, maybe Elliott isn't. But the rest all ranked which is ironic L challenge for I'm bored. He gave Dimitrius a good fight. Yeah. All right. So when he beat that ALP Killick if I'm not mistaken that was the one when I really liked about him in the five or maybe it was Richie back lick. I don't know he when he stood there, Dan. He had great presence in the pocket. Use head movement to dodge a lot of punches that were coming out them. And he was just opened to counter, you know, what I mean? And there's so many fighters that when they are striking especially with four ounce gloves. They'll tend to retreat or use footwork. But basically, you're getting out of his own, and I'm not saying that the bad thing. But I'm just saying there's some that can do that and still also just pivot within the pocket, you know, the phone booth fight type of fight and still just have some opening. It's risky with four hundred bulbs. But I remember he was able to do it. I was really really impressed with them. It jumped out at me is that the fight that where he finished with a psychic too, right? Or was that topic that part, I don't remember? I just remember that stood out to me. I know one of them he met it caught him. But he caught both guys with it. Because only got to finish with one and something I never asked Louis mocha about as those Campo karate background. I don't know if it was like something he did as a kid, but you'll see flashes of sometimes I like that five Ritchie value at the Australian surfer Brazilian Jiu. Jitsu black belt. Yeah. Yeah. All right. We don't have enough time for the daily debate. We'll say that for the beginning of the second hour. Plus, I think I wanted. I know what happened was I had opened the window. But the voting was still open. So we'll get to it. When we come back still have some time. What surprised me I'm on the wrong side. Really? You didn't pick that fight? I didn't. Wow. Goes you did. So in your hand. Well, I mean. Yeah. Just. I guess I guess the ladies will be a good five of that's high level. Those are ranked. Well, the other ones are ranked too. I think this is one side. I think it's going to be. Maybe. Yeah. Maybe why are tipping are. Who knows look we have the top of the hour break. It's not that long. We'll get through it pretty quickly. But before we leave you let me throw out some social media invo our show on Twitter is at enemy junkie radio.

Give him a review to those reviews. Help us out a lot. His show our show Mercedes j they just launched a show, and Richard and Frank and all all the friends of the show. Adam Hunter, anybody that's been plugged us before we plugged them goes as YouTube goes just to give uploaded anything in a while. Right now it up again. Or throw in the towel. And never really I just use that for like the show stuff for jonky gathering stuff. I've never really done anything with it. Okay. Now, we're going to revisit those goes to some clothing or. Yeah. Still work on. I have one design that I really like. But there's a couple that need to be tweaked. Okay. So. Yeah. On items those reviews, you can write us one to five stars. And look, we're all men here. Of course, we'd rather have five stores that helps the algorithm helps the placement within YouTube. But if you're gonna give us four or less just tells hate tweak this, and I'll give you some love because he can go back and revisit those. And trust me anytime somebody gets one star. They're like damn because you need some more stupid. If you get one star, though, those honest come on man, I can watch any show on TV, and at least give them too. I think so too, man. Yeah. I'm with you. Nobody can be that bad. Yeah. All right. Let's do the daily debate. I think we're ready for that. Have you guys can think of anything else you'd like the plug since we had some time we can do it. But in the meantime, let's go to today's question. Here we go guys, which remaining bell Tor MMA. Headliner will give 'em offense. The best light to close out two thousand eighteen two zero one eight engine Kohana versus Salter soccer verses competent premise versus Chandler McFarland versus the turnover. Dan, tom. Stryker verse grappler match usually don't make for the fight of the night award winner for the most part. It's usually one way traffic either way. So I'm going to go with the obvious choice. Chandler verse bring us. I'm with you. Nothing against McFarland versa turnover. That's actually probably going to be a good fight. Now. I think about it. And I think that's maybe goes headed. We'll see I saw the both in the last fights. And I remember being entertained by both of those last night's two. So I guess I shouldn't really slam dunk it. But yeah, man, you know, what Chandler and premiums have been building this up for eighteen months and not in the way of fan like myself likes it. It's not like they went out and got other winds to build up to it. They just basically have called each other out for you know, I signed the contract waiting for you and vice versa. And then Chandler went through a free agency period. And actually channel did take some fight. So I can't put too much blame on him. But that just the longest injury ever. I mean, I don't know what happened, but he's back. That's the one. I'm looking forward to I think it's going to be fireworks. Especially if China can even things up we just know that we can probably see a part three goes. I am going to go Laterna. Oh and McFarland. I just think the question is which one will be the best fight. And I think that want to go back and forth. I think it'll be really fun. I liked premise and Chandler. But I have might be at my end early thing might be one-sided. So I'm gonna go with the return on McFarland. However, if you were standing in between two auditoriums on the doors closed and both lights were starting at the same time. And you couldn't see a replay of the other fight for at least a week which door. Would you go through China premise? Okay. All right. He that. He kept the real. Yeah. Yeah. But if you're talking about the fight fight, which is going to be better. I think the girls are going to bring it that night. Gotcha. All right. Here's how the results came in four hundred five hundred came in for votes. It was his landslide, man. Eighty two percent said premiss and Chandler. Second place was McFarland and the turnover at ten percent. And then the others were five and three percent, respectively in wanting Salter, soccer and competent there you have. There's today's debate brought to you by the at m e junkie radio team. Let's see here. Carlos civil will join us in about seven minutes or so so we got some time. I do want to say that next week will be here. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were offered thanksgiving and the day after thanksgiving. However, we will have some original content for if I'm not mistaken, Danny said Friday show. And they're saying. On Thursday and Friday. Yeah. Right. Well, did you call one a Frankenstein show? Yeah. I still was not original content. Right. It's previously recorded content. I believe right. They call it a best of I call it a Frankenstein show, basically we're gonna we're gonna take some of the the past recent past stuff and put it together and make it sound good. There you go. But one of them is original content. We've been coming in here. The last couple of days and working on it. And it was really really fun guys going down memory lane a little bit just seeing what you guys were thinking. As he's last twenty five years of have unfolded. We we probably could have done fifty. Honestly, those just while there's been a time on rate moment. Yeah. You're right. I guess 'cause. Especially we started tossing out more fights. You can go on forever. I mean like a second ago. I said, yes, he wants to return. Remember, remember? So that way if I'm not mistaken, I think they fought in Detroit. It was all of and Medeiros that was a fucking awesome fight. Is it really a twenty five greatest moment. It'd be hard to make it in there. I would say, but really as far as when you sit down in your chair, and you got you open that beer, and you go. All right. I'm ready for a good fight those two that you can't get any more than what those two you see what I'm saying. But they're just not starpower names that you gravitate to when you're making these lists. You start looking at Kotoro and Panaji is P and McGregor and all that. And then you realize holy shit. I'm gonna run out. But that's what I mean by fifty because if you wanna go through let me look I had to get to the late twenties before I got to and. Hendel who? And I realized that we weren't ranking them. But that fight recently got inducted. You know what I mean? So. What I mean? So a a lot of fights over the years if I'm not mistaken, I think you'll see the numbers, and it was like four thousand six hundred and fifty two. Oh one that's counting the fight night. And all they're just doing. It was just dumped me, I think it was just UC product. So yeah, you've see when they were on versus the fight nights. All that. But as long as you've seen. You've seen. I the includes WC strikeforce that was something else that they acquired, but I think just UC fights four thousand I knows four thousand six hundred fifty to try my best to remember. Then they had did you guys see the poster of all of their champions, somebody one of the champions retweeted or tweeted it out. Did you guys catch them a stake? No, no, Steve, gentlemen. They didn't do tournament champions gem. So. Yeah, no, Steve gentle. Say or do you wanna look and finally gentlemen, I'm out? I guess for the purpose of this show. Say the way Dan brought something he was the firemen right are cop. He's a you'll see three winner out of the first guy was alternate that, but we may be coming from. I was thinking why have the firemen had so much success, and why have been cops that have done it? Benneteau was he a fireman? It took Kim. Bo didn't know he's Canadian though. So amount. I don't know. I just know John Alaska a cop and Ulysses Gomez are called cops down. So Josh Haynes, but the cops post-flight, but I was funny because when you think of firemen they've been so good ones. Dude, Lionel steeping, Eddie. My man, Chad Griggs, I think what's his name was a moment and saw thing. Wow. I guess maybe more that free time, although Utah farm and then though we worked two to twenty four hour shifts. We make up shut up you're sleeping and fucking playing cards most of the time. But for the most part, I thought of that was like did I miss it? Or it was not many cops crow. But he he did that I think host that career Jemaine remainder randomly. Yeah. Paula the does that. Oh, yeah. There you go. There are there. Iago who Shannon? He fought two fights right in the one day that big fight against Kimball outside of the. Well. Yeah. But all right. So let me dial it back. Sorry. I would just say just say it. Oh, the poster. All right. The poster didn't have tournament champions. And then somebody goes worse coal. We didn't look that interim champions either. But I think they made a mistake was they did it by rose. And I saw clearly saw GOP next to us and Woodley, but he was also included in the ones that had the two straps. So then I go away is Cormet also in there and also in his two classes, and he wasn't and neither was pen. It was just just P. So I think why was only in his own row. And then in the double champ row and Gregor wasn't in the lightweight row either. I mean, I did it pretty quick. But tell you what let's take a break. We'll look for just so I can make sure that I'm right? And that way, you guys can take maybe editorialize over my dumb ass because we gotta get Carlos live on anyone. So you're listening to junkie radio on Sirius XM rationally threes, stay close, and we'll be right back. King Kong has a lot of sit on the like a lot. Especially goes. They're gorgeous George goes.

What a great way to watch some fights. And then go out ring in the new year doesn't get any better than that. Joining us on hotline is Carlos Silva. Hey, Carlos welcome back, man. How you doing? Guys, how you doing? Good and yourself. Great man, doing great. Yeah. Yeah. The first thing I asked Greg savage yesterday. Was how's everything on? We know news. Good news. Everybody's healthy and doing well in their camps. That's great. That's a great start. J Rey checks in with all these guys being a fighter of south. He aching. Gotta get a good read of the situation on like all of us that are just civilians, and I checked in with everyone everyone seems to be on track. And I think they're, you know, just trying to make sure they stay healthy. And and have a good solid camp. Don't make an mistakes because this is obviously the biggest fight of all their lives on December thirty. I mean this fight for any variety. Eddie anime athlete that's happening here, December thirty first with with six million dollars to to six champions. It's unbelievable. Unless my eyeball was hanging out of my Izhak, it I'd be shown to a. Yeah. I hope they have safe camps holidays. They make their way, and they go out there and perform, but you know, what you know, what's easy to promote about a five car. Like, this is those guys already went after it. You know, what I mean, you guys created that playoff format, and they were already fighting for that million dollars back, then or at least be in the position to win a million dollars that made things very very exciting. You know, you're right. I mean, there's no doubt. I mean, these guys, you know wonder in the regular season they got crazy to bite twice went twice quarterfinals semifinals. No other anime on the. Athlete on the planet is done this. And now, these twelve athletes are gonna go and and compete a million dollars raise up about and get a million dollars. Their lives will be changed. I mean, you know, how many how many anime fighters have fought for million dollars in the whole history of the sport. And you know, there's gonna be six millionaires on New Year's Eve. And I think it's amazing. It's great for the sport. I love I love what we're doing with the PF L. I love what we're doing with these athletes and two hundred K for the runners up. That's not shabby. Now. That's right. Look the runners up all of that. We started with seventy two fighters in the regular season. Now, there's twelve and you're right does runners up. We're gonna get a nice runners up paycheck and the champions are going to get a great million dollar paycheck. It's it's great for all these fighters. And I think you're gonna see a lot of fighters that are going to say, you know, all their manager and say, hey, man, get me ended up our twenty nineteen you're going to see that happen. It's going to continue. I firmly believe you, and let me tell you my favorite run out of all of them. And it's not because he's part of Sirius XM is just because of what how how DP had to dig to get there like Vinnie McLaren's, for example. I mean, he just smoked everybody. But Sean O'Connell I was there in Long Beach man, this guy thought his azoff, and it was really cool to see him. Celebrate with his people. I like him like, you know, in the NFL when you win the NFC championship in the AFC championship in the locker room, and you're spraying champagne like you really did win at all. But you haven't because you still have to go in the Super Bowl. But it's a huge moment to even get that far. And that's what I saw Sean O'Connell go through he had to dig deep. He was down in round one came back with a ten eight. And then that firefight he had was Smith's millennial Rama that was something else. That was pretty cool. Did you have a pretty do you have a particular favorite to follow Carlos? I'm gonna I'm gonna jump on the bandwagon. Narrated for a second. Sean O'Connell plights both his regular season fight. Unbelievable. Yeah. When dad law says in comes back and gets through this quarterfinals and semifinals, and you're right. He dug deed, and you gotta give them all the credit in the world. He's now on the championship fight. Benny benny's had exactly the opposite. You know, he really came through and just dominated look he's a world champion already. And so Vinnie looks to be inform. I think I think that fight is is just one of every fight. That's great. I mean, Ray Cooper. I think it's stars born. They be energy the power and speed that came out of recoup or I don't care who you are even even a wily veteran like Jake shields who tried to find a way in the quarter-finals. And I know he had a deep strategy to try and get there. He couldn't contain Ray and speed and power. And so, you know, look at the list goes on and on great story with Josh Copeland. Now in the finals, again, he was sitting on his couch waiting to see if he was going to get in as the feed, you know. It's like a Cinderella story. You know, the chip spell where they did. And he squeaked into the sea gets the number one seed in Barosso gets a win. And and now, you know gets through Nicholson and now he's in the final against the leap bay land. Another great story to preach from Denver. And you know, obviously, you're gonna be the biggest day of Josh Copeland's wife and his career and the spot everywhere. He's fought in Europe. He's fought everywhere. And he's gonna maybe become the champion Carlo. Silva's our guest here on may junkie radio. You're talking about PF L eleven which goes down on Year's Eve on NBC sports. Seven PM eastern star time with pre imposed by coverage on their Facebook page. It's Facebook dot com forward slash live PF L very prominent on fight day. All right. Carlos I did want to ask you one. Last thing here. Would you say that season one met your expectations or exceeded your expectations or far exceeded your expectations were where would you categorize season one up until this point? You know, I think it exceeded our expectations. And the reason I say it is because I think it exceeded the expectation of the fans, I mean, I think there's a healthy dose of skepticism going and look it was the first season professional fighters laying regular season playoffs championship scoring by twice win twice. There's a lot of moving parts here fans waited say what the fighters seventy percent of the finishes in the regular season fighters bought it. They knew they needed to get bonus points to get in. And then I think the quarterfinals semifinals everyone just said, oh my God. That's the way I'm a may should be should be able win. They advanced may advance people when they become champions. And so I think the fan told us heeded, Eric speculations. And that's that's why we're here is create a great platform for the fans and a great platform for the fight or so I think I think. So far away. And I think the championships are just gonna put it over the top. Folks, don't forget to if you're in that tristate area or you just want to treat yourself to a nice New Year's Eve. The tickets are still available. Twenty five gets you in the door, the hula theater at Madison Square Garden, and then how about just walking up a few blocks to Times Square and spending New Year's Eve there that right there sounds like a fun night out. All right. Let's turn it over to your to Dan Tom finals, Dan, what do you have for Carlos Silva? Carlos. I just want to second that what you said about over a over achieving and specifically because of the fans have been seeing a lot of great fan responses and me from the media member to fan at the end of the day. Let's just say when you were airing on nights where other intimate cards. My is consistently drew to the PF L screen because of the stakes you guys put on your turnament. So I definitely want want to commend you guys first off the bat. But while I got you Carlos I didn't wanna ask one one question as far as potential changes. I guess. One one of the more critical marks. I if there was one of the tournament was the first round deciding the strength of a of a draw. If you will I'm sorry, I'm not wording that correctly. But basically, you know in the playoffs how heavily weighed that first round was and you see a bunch of ideas tossed around there. And this is going to happen whether bell tower UFC, everybody's got their own two cents, of course. But I one of the things was mentioned in there as maybe, you know, judging for the strength of the fight as far as Japanese style and incorporating that determine structure whether any maybe not even about what I'm talking about. But whether any anything that you saw in particular that you guys are seriously talking about as far as Justin for number number two tournament next year. We've already started. The league is already started to look at the adjustments that will make to the championship again near one. I think we did a great job in all the corner Teijin around injury, then and the way that we help fighters prepare for their next fight. Certainly I think one of the more controversial one's been the quarterfinals. And how do you deal with two round fight? And what do you do about the draw and added that the top of our list, I think we've already got a couple of of straw, straw, ideas that we're going to look at and and, you know, come together as a team having said that all the fighters were briefed. They all knew that you gotta win that first round and case draw half. And by the way, if you want to avoid all that get a Finnish. 'cause if you get a finishing you take it out of the judge hands. But certainly like we're going to listen to the fans we're gonna listen to fight, and we're going to regrow porn gonna look at all of those pieces. I think. I think one of the things that were already looking at as we look at our twenty nine nineteen schedule even finding a little more time in between each of the fights. And the fighters as you know, we work very closely with the commissions, and when a fighter gets knocked out or injured there's going to be abandoned toys inspections to protect the fighters, which we support so wanna make sure that in between each of their fights. They have enough time, and we might build a fine another another five to ten days in between each of those fights, those are all things that we're looking at. But by and large, I think the rules and the regulations and all really held up. Well, I think we heard that from our fighters, they're they're they're obviously the most important piece of this is keeping them healthy. And also giving them the opportunity to compete in season of Emma may. Goes what do you ever Kosovo Carlos were very excited for the fires? I have the opportunity to win the million dollars. But I wanna talk about the ones who don't the ones that didn't make it of that group. Are there any in particular that have just been blown up your phone about season to making sure that they're gonna get on there and make that impact? Oh, I think a number of them shore. They've they've guys like well Brooks and Andre Harrison, you know, you know, our and others that all just you know, sort of missed getting yet today either it'd make the final a or they lost in the quarters lost at Sammy's. Chris wade. We know had a very tough decision with with NATO non and so look Chris is Chris excited. Love PF L experience. What we don't want to be in the finals. Of course, everyone wants to be in the finals fights that championship, but he'll be back next year. And and they're all all getting queued up. You'll see some of them at Madison Square Garden at the Hulu theater with us cheering on the championship. And getting us prepared for twenty nineteen you know, in along with Kayla Harrison always gonna be there getting her third bout of the of her young career in. So she can get ready for the twenty nineteen season to all be there. It's all it's all part of the PF family, and they're all going to be sharing thirty six million dollar winters, and and we'll drive right into the twenty nineteen and that's going to start in may. We've asked a lot of the fighters. What are you gonna do with that big paycheck DM any plans, the two guys that we haven't talked to you? And Ray what is it? The do. You have anything planned after the show? Just there's got to be this big relief of stress excitement as their brandy cigars, you guys plan that out at all. You know, we we really have not I can tell you that. I will I will try and get away a little bit with my family for a little time in January like to see the family. My kids will be home from college. And we'll we'll we'll get away somewhere to have a little fun for a week. There's no doubt. It'll be a big it's gonna be a big celebration. We're really excited about what as a team we've all put together here when I say team. I mean, all the fighters all the staff, the venues, the Commission's everyone. We've all worked together know, we got a great investor based here that have helped us, and look there's going to be the end of changing again here it Emma may. And I think the PF L I season what we crown those six champions. And Ray gives them their PF dot world championship out. It's going to be a great accomplishment that we put this this season of sport together. And I was so successful. Cannot wait Carlos. So we're gonna have a lot of fighters on hopefully, maybe you one more time on five week to promote this because you guys have done a great job you deserve it. We really appreciate the time. You always give us including today. So thanks again for joining us here on MA junkie radio. Right. Talking to you guys talk soon. All right you too. We'll see. All right, folks. That's Carlos Silva. You wanna give him a follow? It's at Carlos Silva, just like his name that I'm no you heard him on the at e junkie radio show. Remember NBC sports on New Year's Eve, they're going to show six title fights along with Kayla Harrison. And if you wanna go to the vent twenty five bucks gets you in the door. What a way to start off your New Year's Eve taking some fights. And then spilling out into Times Square. All right. We're going to go straight into our next guest. He's ready to rock and roll. His name is James Vick. You just signed on to fight Paul Felder at UC to thirty three on January twenty six and this event takes place in Anaheim, California. Joining us on hotline is James Vic Vic doing what's up, man. I'm good awesome, man. Well, good to have you back on the show as always give us an update on little man. How old is he? Now what what's the terror just like his daddy probably was around this age or a Kombi? But he's a good baby. He really is. He's seven months a little over seven months old in. He's a good baby. Really mostly only, you know, when he's diapers dirty. He's and besides that he's good. I'm we're still in the phase of sleep training him where he's gotta learn how to get on a real sleeping really still wakes up my breastfeed. So we still wakes up every two and a half three hours in the middle of the night. You know, she not liking that. But we just got to train him out of his house that he's a kid. Do you get any passes? Once your fight camp starts in regards to it's your turn. It's your turn, you know to tend to the baby. No actually migrate really good about that really really hasn't affected me much kid to be honest, because I mean, you know, we're gonna position where now we can, you know, even blessing of where she can afford to be a stay at home, mom and everything and she knows a lot going on. You know, it's not like get up at midnight and breastfeed. So she does all of that. And you know, I don't have to do as much to be honest with you. I'm kinda blessed air, I think you can milk anything with nipples. Right. That movie. I think so. Yeah. All right Vic, you get the fight in Anaheim, California to start the new year. But before we get to two thousand nineteen how would you encapsulate two thousand nineteen? Don't be too hard on yourself, man. You're still one of the top fighters out there. But was a did you feel like you grew even those a one in one year disappointed to tell us? Oh, very good. The point very pointed almost depress. You know? I mean, of course, my skill set grew skill set glue, my technique got better. I mean a lot. I think a lot of people don't understand that. I don't have you know, as far as experience level of a lot of these guys, you know, some of these guys have been fighting the Middle East ten fifteen training ten or fifteen years longer than I have you know, I'm gonna start trying to boxing traumas twenty years old. I didn't start. Grappling twenty to thirty one now. But also I want to Tom job even even over half the time, I've been feeler fulltime job of had four major surgeries. So a lot of time on the shelf as well. So, you know, I'm still in the phase of girl in Moscow's progressing, and you know. You know, every five felt like evolve and showed him stuff. But you know, I mean, I got caught got caught early in that fight and can't win anybody myself. But it, you know, the last fight definitely sucked for me. You know, the the beginning of the year was good. I got a win wasn't a super exciting five, but one handed to me easily easily one decision. In the end. I got a big opportunity and freaking blew it. I'm not I'm not. Any more any less confident of myself? My skill set not any not by any means all you know, I just feel like. You know, I just feel like I've got to be a long road back to getting a big fight like that. Because these guys already don't wanna fight. Anyway, you know, so. Yeah. I got caught. But honestly, besides showing. Getting calling a few overhand shots in the two losses house really showed no ability, you know, being six three it's hard. It's hard to get the five me. So, you know, you got opportunities like that you have to capitalize. And I did. And so that you know that definitely sucks. But I mean, I made decent money this year. You know at my kid. I mean, it wasn't good year. You know, besides you know, that one when major setback, right? All right. Let's turn over to the guys here goes for James Vic, that's kind of along the lines of what I wanted to talk about James was what you what you do going forward from there. Because if you look at the performance, I don't feel like it was something where you need to come back in a lot of fighters try and reinvent themselves after a loss that felt more like a tightening of the screws situation is that demand interpreting that correctly or not. I mean, I mean. Yeah. A lot of people say, you know, but you, but you gotta understand something to these guys. Don't wanna fight me. I mean think about this even even if I would've won that fight named one guy ranked above me would agree to fight me. You don't say there's really not want maybe more. That's why I was kinda hoping maybe I could give but he's already booked five with that Hooker. So maybe you know, maybe the winner. I mean, it felt it can get winter of that fights because you see UC gates. He's about five head or something. I guarantee you if I would've went penicillin the fought me. These guys still wouldn't have fought me. Even if I were to one I still would have had to fight some right below me. So, you know, but obviously, it's still sucks depressing to lose like that. It's humiliating. But I mean, basically, you know, I gotta I gotta get on another winning streak. And I'm I'm not allusion with some of this stuff any fair about you know, life ain't fair. So I got you know, I'm gonna have to go back and win three or four five where someone like h have to win one five after losing a couple of when he gives opportunity, but that's just the way shit is when opportunity so I got I gotta live with that. But I mean, as far as, you know, putting, you know, tightening up some things I mean, obviously, I got caught with. I mean, people can say all they have a blueprint of the boots to be any tall person obvious. I mean, remember when when Hocine Brockman knocked out Lennox Lewis, you know, overhand looping shots. What tall fighters? I mean. That's obvious either either they catch me or I can't down or there. I don't get caught with those shots. But I mean, that's obvious anybody's obviously, I needed shouldn't a circle that close to the cage from a tactical standpoint, I wet my bag into the cage. I didn't have enough room to circle out. You know, and those are things that I've studied watching to fight multiple times in. I addressing. But I mean, it's obvious. I mean, if you're fighting a taller guy, you're gonna you're overhand looping left hooks in looping shots. That's what beats top fighters. So it's not like, I mean, either am I gonna adjust to that? Because they're gonna think game plan every fight regardless. You know? So I'm Peter do I keep my hands up. Do I do I circle enough out of the way? Do I not get back on the cage? You know, those are things that I have to tighten up for sure. In regards to Paul Felder in his last fight. Are there any things that when you want when you go back and watch that fight? Are there things that that maybe Mike Perry did that you feel like you can replicate? No, not really, you know, because I don't really I'm honestly, I'm probably gonna watch that fight. Maybe maybe one or two more time to study. But then I'm gonna go back to the other. I was watching before that because I mean, he broke his first round. So that's not really Kim. Breaking home in the first round, you know, any still loss only split season. Vision was very close. When you have a serious injury. Like that you break your arm injury bad enough. You have to have surgery on it later on, you know, you're not you're not the same. So that all the tools and stuff you doing is not going to be what he would be doing is me healthy and had to warms. So that's kind of a bad. You know about fight to study too. Weren't gonna game plan. You know what I mean? But think he unfortunate breaking in? You know, that's what happened to be honest with you. Let me turn it over to our fight analyst, Dan, Tom, Dan. What do you have four? Jane sick. I was gonna ask you as well about your your outlook on Felder as well, technically. But man, as per usual, you give awesome breakdowns, especially when you're on this show, James. So let me ask you about the different kind of perspective about Paul not so much about Paul. But about about the white class when when the offered it to you now, obviously, you know, I'm sure you were you were down. But also ready to get back out there. Right. I in after your last flight, but was there any of you contemplating welterweight out there how serious where you contemplating welterweight at how much of it has to do with a match matchup of for you to stay are how much of it is more. The goals of always repeated to us here on the show about want to be world champion. For sure it's always about the goal of being a world champion. And I'm in today. I'm still ranked number ten or eleven. I'm still ready to be done to try to move up at this point. And I get we're both very big lightweights. And there's a lot of guys that are big light weights. But I'm glad you brought this up actually something that I was actually gonna do like a social media post on. Maybe you've seen recently surroundings going back down. Yeah. Garissa dropping back. Now. What's happening is we need another white class, obviously. Hopefully, we can get sixty five hundred vision, you know, in a perfect world that happens if not we're kind of stuck in the middle because you can say, oh, we are one hundred ninety pounds finding lightweight. Well, so's Kevin Lee. So so was Michael. So as Paul Felder, so is probably a good portion of the top twenty or you know, big like that outside Eddie Alvarez was super big like that, you know, he gained a lot of weight in between. So, but what you're finding out is that when you move up these other guys are still bigger, you know. Yeah. Maybe towards my bone structure is not bigger. I'm not my frame isn't bigger, you know on. So like Indian team it was fine. Amass aronie number finding you know in there. You know, that's why they say jogging back down. You know, what they move up because they felt like, you know, basically they had to because the weight wasn't struggling. I get it. I it's not easy. It's not easy at all. I've never here's the thing is I'm never it's funny because George locker called me out on the Joe Rogan podcast awhile back. About me being hardest wait cut because you know, he said on sweet tooth on. You know, a lot of sugar and stuff. So I've never really never really followed George locks program the way, I should I've still never missed weight. So if I thought the what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna really discipline myself. And I've been a positive I've been cutting all sugar. I went through, you know, recently, I didn't sugar for three weeks, and you know, I'm kinda eating a little bit now. But I'm about to go to Thailand on Monday. And I'm gonna I'm gonna cut it all off again, I'm gonna see how much weight I can lose fat. Just really a lot of monitor's diet, you know, bad diet, but I'm just moving up. If I follow joys lock arts program the way I'm supposed to and then it's still a really really hard to make the way then I'll consider moving for sure. But I mean right now, I'm still right? Number eleven in the world. I feel like that would be a dump. I don't career move for me to do that. And then I have to turn around in in win a bunch more five Stephen get right to the next division. You know, and some of these guys are cutting from you know, two to five and two stuff. These weld awaits. You know? So it's not like they're not cutting a lot of weight. Also, you know, so I think essential Oni in Madeira some they're finding they're not. They're still the smaller even tall going up. You know? And that's why they're back down out. You know, I like that you're talking about it because the minute we stopped in the minute. It'll will lose a couple years of traction. I really believe guys that sixty five and seventy five are on their way. But then again, I've said that a little bit. But I don't know I feel like a picked up some steam. Some of the names that James just dropped the they've been vocal as well. It needs to happen. And I think it will happen. But I'm glad we're still talking about it. And I'm glad James gave a great explanation about James one thing. I was gonna ask you was if you feel like you lost a little bit of your confidence and swagger, but just hearing your voice, you really still sound confident. You've already dressed the loss. Hell you are opened up to say that it was humiliating. But it sounds like you've really pick yourself up and you're ready to get on another streak. So I want to commend you for that. Thank you, man. And yeah, yeah. You know, I've never I never lost confidence. And I never will literally got me realistically. These guys that I've beaten and they're not fighting I should be. He's really been training for ten years longer than I have. I mean gates has been wrestling with five years audience start training until I was freaking twenty years old and boxing, and then I didn't even start grappling. Thomas twenty two. You know? And I mean, they do literally has wrapping his college wrestling and everything he has seventeen more years in that time. I do you know what I'm saying? In granted, it was a striking fight. But still when you when you have that top of years of grappling. You don't have to focus on that as much you can grab a once or twice a week in strike the rest of the time, you know, and you know, realistically, should I be Felder in my mind. I mean, of course, I'm going to in my mind, I'm gonna win. But I mean, the guy's been training for ten years longer than you don't saying. I mean, realistically, I shouldn't be guy. So why would why would I not be confident, you know, knowing that I've I've been able to work hard, and I've been able to catch. He's got just through, you know, hard work. Good coaching Indian me. I'm really no life, and my whole twenty mile- twenty to life, and I'm just been training, and I had to catch up to have been boxing, wrestling or taekwondo or whatever since they were kid. And now here, I am you don't find these guys. Yeah, you're doing well to man, that's a tough division. You know, your thirteen into overall you've had a four five win streak you've out of nine five win streak. So nothing to hang your head on at all. All right. Let's close with this Vicks picks for you of fight night. One forty and Argentina, you got something for you. Gotta parlay you can feed me, man. You know, me I'm right here at the Mandalay bay, all I gotta do walk up a few steps, and I could put in weight. Audience that can that can just press a button or two, but do you like anyone? This is a tough card Magni a big underdog. But I would I would think risk with those odds that I've seen has how far the laundry odds right now. We. It'll just pulling up. Yeah. I know that Santiago was a bottom minus three hundred or high in the two hundred minus two ninety right now at least five times plus two forty five combat on the Magni. Yeah. I would take that. I mean, I would take it. I'm not saying I would take it for huge amount. But I mean, I mean many his beaten some good people any and he's been around. And he's he's another one almost like, I am who started training way later in life. And everyone else, you know, a lot of these guys have it. He didn't have varying level, but he's catching up, and he's you know, obviously, you're going to run into people. You know, I guess a couple years ago like Damian, my, you know, I mean news been grappling for fifteen years longer than of course, he's probably gonna go this minute. They get the met, you know. But I think, you know, he's a good enough dog to take a chance, you know. At least a decently, you know, a small wager not huge but decent wager because those two good for that. You know, any other lights, you know, me, I'm Parlog. I can you give me one more. The co main again, Darren Elkins and Ricardo lamas. See is too a big favorite, right? I mean, it's tough during. Some of the comeback each CHAD'S. I wouldn't bet against Llamas um, you know, I wouldn't nuts. Who else we got? We'll do one more pollyanna Botelho versus Cinta Covey do. Well, what the what the ladies? I'm talking about. I'm talking about Ben. Ben. Maybe right. No that was pick 'em rainbow Calvia the more name value. And she's ironically underdog to pollyanna Botello who's Nova in Yala female away class two hundred that Caitlyn VERA. But she looks really impressive to I think I think it's more of TAOs fight. But I was a little bit surprised to see VO as a dog. I ended up picking the other girl for what it's worth. But it's a close fight. Veal is she's real, you know, notice about her that I think she she's I think she's really she's mentally or more more mentally strong a lot of those girls in her weight class. She I mean, she's a dog. She's a freaking warrior. So I think that unless you know, this other girl, I'm assuming the hills. Very good jitsu, grappler or something like a black belt or something. Yes. She apparently strengths. Anyway, she's really she's a real physical. She's she's got good. Take down defense credits are Brazilian wrestling. Which I don't to be honest, James. I don't know much about that scene. You don't see that accolade too much. But but she's got an extra name for what that's worth it looks like she can defend a takedown, which you probably need to do Calvi. Oh for sure. All right. One other girls. So I would have to pick somebody just because she's mentally strong as comes in for the women's division. James? We got to end with this real quick. It was almost a year ago. We got to go to JBL together believe time flies, and I'm not sure we've even seen since then. I know he's spoken to you. But. We can get you on a future trip. For sure. Yeah. It was a good time. I still get text some of the guys there and everything, you know, talking about five and just checking on San what's up that was that was a great experience. I was very blessed to be on the y'all come on that trips on pre sheet that for sure out anytime you want. All right, brother. Well, I I have a safe camp versus or, you know, leading up to Paul Felder and cannot wait to see you guys throw down both or solid lightweight. So this is going to be a good one. And it's gonna happen in Anaheim, California. And I'm pretty sure we'll all be there. So anyway, happy holidays as well. Save trip to Thailand, and we'll catch up soon. Yes, sir. Thank you guys.

You're welcome. What's happening guys? Happy friday. And thank you for joining another special episode of. You're welcome all I can tell you is the champ is here. I am joined by Henriksen little hindrance going on. To be in the presence of the American battle. That's nice. Thank you. I was thinking so. So. I'm gonna have to ask you all the same redundant annoying things. I'm sure you spoke of since that night in Brooklyn. But how annoyed are you having to answer for was that fight stopped early? I'll be honest with you. It doesn't bother me, man. Like, it's I knew what I was going to do to TJ a fighter knows them. I'm I'm a shark. When you smile blood. I'm going out there, and I'm going to kill you. He better. Thank God for that rough because he wasn't gonna make it out that minute. You know, what you don't want? It's funny about it though. There seems to be some weird piece of psychology that women fight is in any level controversy. Nobody remembers the previous moments of the fight. For example. People forget how TJ ended up down there the first place, and I feel as though that's that's an attempt by fans who are resentful TJ fans, I would suspect that are trying to take away from your glorious moment. And I think businesswise you guys are probably integrate spot. You've got the footage. You got the controversy. Boom. You go into the rematch, but competitively they're trying to steal your moment. I don't that makes me hurt for you a little bit. Yeah. No. I I don't feel that. One bit show like not one bit man like not one tiny tiny bit. I know what I did to that. Man. He knows what I did to him. And I'm at peace, man. Like, he said, none. I wish the roughly let go on a little longer because he was using to be even Cheney year. And that's just kind of the way. That's that's really the way. I see show like he'd better. Thank god. I dropped him three times three times the reference in the line of fire with like, it's who he's not someone. That's across. He's not someone that's across the casick. He's there. He's he's hearing moans and groans. You can hear it. When you fight for. You can't hear in the stands. You can hear you. Nobody nobody listens to that. When when you start hearing things like that. That's do you're out, man. I'm gonna put you out. I guess they'd Drennan going, absolutely. His facial structure like nice when you when I see people. Findings poker? You gotta be able to keep you gotta be able to have a poker face where you had no idea. What cars is mad has in front of you. When I start seeing. Kind kakai. Them's like, okay, he's he's not doing well now announced to finish. It was exciting. And I will tell you for me as a fan. I do hope the rematch happens. I wanted to see minutes between you guys, I guess I'm leading into making a statement. But I wanna get your your take imagine. You would have inside scoop with you. And teach you are going to fight again. But it did seem as though if you're going to rematch. It's gotta be at one thirty five. I mean, if you gave him the champ to chance to become champ champ. It's only fair that you would be given the same chance if you wanted if you wanted to go to one thirty. Yeah. That's absolutely nuts. And even before we fought us as I said, they know I'm going to beat this, man. And I'm not changing my tubes. I said I'm going to beat this, man. Watch my press conference in on ESPN. I said I'm going to beat this, man. And you're gonna you're going to be four you're going to you're going to be forced to give me a rematch. I'm going to beat them head and twenty five pounds. I'm gonna take his soul one hundred thirty five pounds take his belt. Just like that everything. I said I even sell the knock him out in the first round because I know what is like to cut weight, and you're going up against another creature. You're going to you're not going up against another normal fighter in going up against one of the greatest competitors of all time. And that's the way it may not be the greatest fighter. But I believe a one of the greatest competitors of all time. I will find a way to beat you. Oh, you deserve that compliment foreshore. You for sure deserve that compliment. So what is being talked about? Are they gonna redo it at one thirty five in does does Marlin throw a big wrench into this thing? I mean modeling can take a back seat. That's Marlin canoe. He can take a back seat because Dana white wanted TJ deaf. We want to ease pissed money. He's like he he's not pissed. He's he's pissed that he didn't get a hit off. Did not touch me. Not one time. He I think he got to kicks in there. Both slaps I free. I'd louis. I devour this. At through the bones L, I spit him out. So he wants to fire. I know Dana wants to fight I want to fly to actually I want to fight just to just just to get another ballot. Just add more goal to the legacy. And I feel like that will put me as one of the greatest combat athletes of all time, which I refill like I am chill. I two of the greatest accomplishments that any combat athlete could ever do one the Olympics. When the UFC title beat Dimitri Johnson, the greatest of all time and beat the greatest Batum would've all time. Come on guys. Where's where's my? Where's my credit was mattress? Ladies and gentlemen. Hey, I think that's fair you're preaching to the choir on that. But but hold on you say Dana once we know the fans want to fight. Now, you say Dana once it you're saying teacher wants to say you want it. But I'm still getting vibe like you're not sure if it's going to happen, though, is it that the only agreement you mean, don't we have a fight? We do have a fight. We don't have a date yet. Okay. We do have a fight on but-but-but. Welcome to the US seaman. Like, I said, mama rice. He may step in. Hey, do you Henry you're gonna? Take this amount of money or we're going to go into Marlon. That's exactly what happened the first time. The first time, I suppose if I was supposed to be one hundred thirty five pounds like I want it. And they came back gave me a number that wasn't happy with us as you know, what bring him down bring them down now. And I take him out. You're gonna be forced to pay me. Double if not go ahead. Let let let let the chance that lost to the boring flyway go up, and then just dominate the world or whatever he wants to do that's fine. And that's kind of high left it off. I I'm very confident human being childlike that there's one thing that I don't like. And that's and that's confidence so Lee. Okay. So we got we got an agreement that as long as everybody can get the contract as long as this. This is we're we're price fi. I'm a price fighter. Man. I'm you know, there's there's options out. There's there's been a video one hundred twenty five pounds. But there's also the reason why I was wanna fight teacher. Because there's for sure there's legacy in this. Like, I beat them on the fight. We champion. I know I could beat him one hundred thirty five pounds. Give me the opportunity, but just make sure those numbers are right for sure. Sure, I see a bunch of zero zero zero head you N orange. I wanna be risked like uncle, the you'll be very and certainly earned it. So okay. So I think we can put paid to that. And see everything gets worked out with you guys in the office. Let's move on. So speaking of Marlin speaking of jobs as speaking of last weekend. I mean, those guys look pretty good. Yeah. Yeah. They look good. Look good. But it's almost like sometimes I'll watch a fight. And even when you see a knockout, I will be so impressed because it's not so much of that right hand. But it's more what his opponent didn't do in range in fighting range not distance like, no game planning. That's the way I see in visualize a five and not can tell you with Marlin and an Asana since since I was in the line of fire. He got hit with two right? Has it didn't react until the second. One was down way Connell. I felt like for him his strategy. He didn't respect TGI. I'm sorry. He didn't respect Joe was he was a little starstruck. And I could see that. So sometimes people we can talk about the technical aspect of fight about how many people actually go into the to the internal what are their minds thinking. How do they react under the lights? I'm used to this purchases. In dude. I go up against data Corp. I believe I could be. What you wear what you put into your body is made to help you look feel and performance your best. Should it?

I know you're in Colorado. I know captain Eric is behind things for you at an actual, Jim. Yeah. No. I'm actually in Phoenix Arizona, but I do go to Colorado and train. What I do is. I build a trim around me. Like, I know a lot of people. And again, I got I got a got my mentor who who who helps me out with all this very successful businessman got a great relationship with them. It's like it's almost like what do you need? He's like Santa Claus. You wanna peak elephant in your backyard? Here you go you got it. So what I'll do is I'll pinpoint certain guys like, I'm truly a professional. It's not me chaining like in a team. And we're all doing the same thing. Like know everything that I'm doing is very very particular for this, professor fighter. So I'm bringing in from Holland upbringing. Guys in from from Brazil, bringing guys in from from from Russia from Asia. And we're combining all these people and kind of created this perfect storm private workouts on private everything. Everything everything is specific from science to recovery technology. It's it's something that I've always dreamt of annouce. I I'm successful because of that because I'm a professional where before it was a traditional style of Russell, you just put your head down, and you just work. Yes. It got to beat the best in the world in that sport. I don't know how long I could. I could do that. I could be like I could I'm going to give you an example came losses super super young guy. But he just I'd feel like an love him. He's he's a deer and a great friend of mine, but I feel like he just trains a little too hard grinds it down over time. Right. You can you can grow. What did you make as a wrestler? I ask you this question. What you make of Aaron PICO getting knocked out. She'll be ever been in that position. Or should he be using his wrestle little bit more? Yeah. And a lot of that. He's he's. Going to learn sometimes it's he stubborn dude. And that's partially will make some great too good. He's not greed yet. But that's possible. Make some good as the fact that he's stubborn, but it told me about the difference between Tom and Terry Bryant's the two the two twins. Sure. One goal meadows once once LeBron's. Mel is the one that was bras medalists was my coach and the different than you would ask them. We know what's in between Tom and Terry, and they would say, you know, Terry wishes too little too stubborn that his brother his brother thought a little bit more than Terry. And that was a difference. And I think people situation is he needs to think a little bit. He needs to think more of a competitor rather than a fighter. Sure how bad can a knockout like that. And he was out how big a out like that. At twenty two years old. I made connect take years off his career connect- change things. Does he he needs to make sure he's not taking any of those hits anytime soon and my right? Absolutely. I can use to take I think can needs to take maybe eight months. Minimal from training as well. Really just fully just. Yeah. Because I remember I remember it, and I had a concussion it wasn't knocked up Aaron Burr having a concussion, man. I could not do things rifling four months like my just my balance. Everything was just off flow. I couldn't read a book, and I got need on top of my head. And it was just how like who's what's going on who do that? What fight was? No those just in practice with the knee pan. Ooh. Hey, that's a real thing. Russell you shoot into guys in the in her real thing too. But you know, if you're done that where you bull shoot at the same time. Yeah. And you just it's like two Rams. Yeah. That that'll put you on. I think I mean, it's I think it's just about being smarter men. Like, it's I think once you're wrestler. You have that you have that edge of going knowing where you have pushed that body knowing that you've gone through hell leave that you've pushed the body that way like. Don't you don't necessarily have to do that for the rest of your career. And I think that's the problem is too many wrestlers putting that rest of metality into fighting rather than than than than taking the principles of it. But being using smarter way. Right. How was aswering what to do with Lawler? Oh, man. I'd say the two thousand eight Olympics. You had a pretty good run run about it did two thousand they was probably the worst Olympic Olympic team that we had I think since this since like seventy two or seventy or sixty eight I forget what year, but somehow we killed it in the sport of mixed martial arts. So ironically from the worst Olympic team probably ever to probably the most successful in recognized teams, I'll be on the planet. So you didn't answer my question is he going to be all right here van Robbie does. Well with wrestlers than we give rubbish credit gear yet bending. I think Ben is the toughest matchup in the world. I think when people think about, you know, he's he's a Damian mile plus ten like, he's just he shows up. You'll be anybody in the world then shows up, but he could also get knocked out by anybody version. So for sure it's a hard match up. I feel like people are overlooking at. Yeah. 'cause rob is not gonna build it up much which puts been in a tough spot vins going off everybody. But Robbie that's a that's a tough match for both guys. Yeah. I think if if Robbie winds will not come on the first round of Ben wins. He's just going to it's going to be a grind. How those follow wrestling? Now. I close. Okay. All right. Let's look at the date Taylor. Jaden Cox two thousand twenty who goes where down from what I've heard from what I've heard in pretty I'm pretty in with this is janey cock is actually gonna go up and and challenge cow Snyder right has to it because the wait is that the issue again. I think I think he's he's he's a big boy. And then I believe they gonna go down Russell boroughs. And I think I believe they is. I'm sorry. David is very much going to have a he's going to have a by the to the Olympic. Yeah. Yeah. Leading into the game. So David Taylor at the wrestler of the year. Am I right all around wrestler of the year? I think you're right. Yeah. Taken out the Iranian twice took out. A Oliver STAN who was the Olympic champion in two thousand twelve. It was a Han scored on a scoring out there at the world's t- rife Dake was I know Taylor was scored on in fact, no saying date you talking about Taylor day. I was moved up to Taylor. Okay. I was talking Taylor. We'll see think Taylor's Eitan Wesley because of his path. Yes. I thought it was a very hard pather or maybe Yazdani twice. Yeah. Plus the two thousand twelve Olympic champion to go to Olympic champions this year. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I mean toss between him and date of the Ossicini because they stake is. But then again, you probably right because David todos the Olympic way. Right. So you're right. You know, many have to give some credence to that. You do. I mean, that's a real thing. I think that that's interesting. I I hear the same thing. Jane, Cox is going to go up against Schneider, which is very interesting. They got a pass Jane has beaten and before wouldn't predict that he will beat them two thousand twenty. But it sure makes things interesting. Then again, I wanted to predict either was gonna take out Varner. Why would I it was nineteen years old and Olympic champ? I mean wrestling wrestling America right now is so underrated. There's never been a better time to be wrestling fan. And I do feel like so many people miss it, particularly our own mixed martial arts audience. I feel like if you love him may you would watch wrestling if you knew where to find it knew where it was at. Know what you don't know kid yourself. Don't kid yourself because everybody would send ally wrestled Snyder this last year, I was I people people that jujitsu world and anime world. They're like, hey, man. You know cows there were talking about the match on just like, that's when it kind of hit me a social media, and the internet ships, Dave is given a lot of attention. Sure. Sport that hurt, bro. I will tell you I stayed up. I think it was you know, three or four in the morning, we're wrestling Budapest three or four in the morning stayed up for that match and win. We're not guaranteed to get that match. Again, Schneider will do his part, but Saj alive is not going to enter any tournaments unless he has. So we're not guaranteed that match. They come back to the world's. They gotta make it through killers to get to the finals it hurt seeing that it so quickly as the wrestling fan. I mean, I felt for Schneider. But also you as a fan I wanted to see more minutes. I did I wanted to see some exchanges there now, which I'll be an in two thousand. Seventeen. Yes, they wrestled lashes was two thousand seventeen when they rustled I felt like seventy lie was a little small, and now me and my brother had talked about. And it was like man of said live gains a little bit of weight, and it feels into that way class Kaos ladders and trouble jer because he's he's he's a technical wizard. I have never shell. And the first time I saw him when the world's at eighteen years old. I said this guy is going to be the greatest of all time what he did to that. Cuban freaking tech twenty thirty second. The do slap them. He looked at. It says you're going to your mind we did that. And then he did what he did after saw guy like do this. This kid is incredible. That Cuban by the way, wasn't just some new guy. He was in the finals of the year before I don't know if you know that he was returning world, silver medalist, and yes, adulation tech them. Yeah. He just did that tool. So I mean, I think I think now looking at it now because let's be honest -ment said alive has filled in and. To that way. Class. Now is going to be who's the make the adjustments are going to be is is as Kaos nine nicotine, keep lifting weights and getting stronger, and he he's already I believe he's already pled Tobin or and it will what's sublime intended lying anymore. Ten go is getting savvier. So there's an adjustment the has to be done with Colin order for him and beat him. Again. He they will get if he doesn't beat it. He will never beat a mess. And that's scary. Yet a scary. I agree it won't be disappointed as a wrestling fan. But I do look forward. We're gonna have to count. We gotta wait on trust me. I'll huge car. I love coastline. I look up to them. I when people are asking they hit who do you look up to you do Jordan Burroughs Kaos, none of the world champs of wrestling. These are the guys that I that I admire, but I hope I hope he makes that transition. I hope he finds the right appointed person makes those adjustments because this this guy right here is not only killer. He's a. Technical machine. You're listening to your welcome with jails Sunan.

Heavyweight eighteen years old never in my life him or have. I thought somebody would be a four-time Encina Blake champion, even kale even Fiedler day. I never predicted that they would do. They just went out. And did it I predict I expect I would be shocked if it was not if gabled did not win the NC double A's four time if he was ever beat. And you know, what else? True freshman, he may not give up a takedown and then to AA tournament, and you know, what you know, I lead into him. I don't know how closer fallen I lead into him. Because I have a piece of information that I don't know if it's accurate or not. But the word around the big ten is that he's going to wrestle this year. When the blaze taken Olympic redshirt year, do what he can in the Olympics, go right into mixed. Martial arts wrong. Why not try to win four titles? That's that's the rumor going around the big ten. I don't know where that came from. Sure. Train with rock-solid Minnesota Brock's going and they'll getting ready for Daniel Cormie could be interesting. Yeah. But I thought that would be a mistake. I like him jumping into mixed martial arts. We just be him. He's still a puppy measure as as big of a Mahssiry giant. And that he is. I mean, it would also give us some advice. Don't get into this game until t- fulfill your dreams into until you do what you gotta do in the sport at Russell because there's a lot of fee NAM's out there, but you know, being experienced in the sport of wrestling being reaching up becoming a champion at the highest levels. That's that's when we're going to help carry you into mixed martial yards. His brace still developing. He's a giant. But he's still he's developed. He's probably still growing to what heavyweights different deal. You know? You're not a lock to be a star or a great fighter at heavyweight. You're just not if you can't be light on your feet. Bouncer. Some of those guys get too big. You know, the great heavyweights, you're bringing up Cain earlier. But Qian's right around two forty steep as around two forty Daniel Cormet moves up from five you don't really have. A lot of those really big is. In fact, I'll throw name that you that. We all thought would be the new bear in there. But it just didn't work out with Steve Moco. And some of that was he was so big when it came to be in light it wasn't there. Just wasn't there. Yeah. It was before he gives up his education. I guess I'm arguing with you. Right gable? Here's this. I don't think he should rush it either. I think he should stay in school use that scholarship. Yeah. But I I think that's just a rumor I think the kids smart enough. I think he's got great parents to this sport to Emma may like he's not going to jump into the USC right away. Either. Like, he's he's it'd be he's going to be fighting frigging backyard. Someone in Mississippi shore, not I mean, like he's going to go from NCA being fighting in sorry. Russ in front of twenty thousand twenty five thousand people to to backyard Mississippi trying to recognize right and guys throwing beer cans as fighting. But anyways, gave don't make that mistake. So when did you decide you were going to get an MA? When did, you know, this is a sport? I want to go down there. Yeah. I was a kid. I feel like I was when I was in eighth grade. I remember like as a family, we would we would they had at Hollywood videos of Reynolds stolen. Would you know? I saw you know, we saw for the first time we kinda start renting videos, we kind of kept up with and I liked they remember she Mark Coleman. A lot of these you know, Kevin random and radically tour. Really young then. Yes, I was a puppy. Minnows pike thirteen years old maybe fourteen. I was I was I was a kid or marker marker the smashing machine. And I was like damn and I liked and this was this was this was back in ninety nine to lob. Sorry. This was back in two thousand two thousand two hundred one and I just knew that that was just the next step after fight. So I had already had it in my mile kid. This is what I'm gonna do after wrestling. But once I won the Olympics. It's almost like that competitor. It's almost like I wasn't sure for wanted to do that. I just you know, -ccomplish everything in. But there are still that competitor in me. Right. And it took a while to kind of sparked that fire to be, you know, it's like, you know, what I'm gonna I want to become a world champion this. And I just I submerge myself shell like it was. And everything that I do I've everything that I've ever set my mind to I've I've accomplish in. Oh, it's not to say that for sure it's because of remarkable is because of wrestling is because of the the ino- the strength that it has given me the grind the the humbleness of losing of any given day, man. You take a break, man. This this year own chain. Punt we'll take you out when you decided to go that route. Did you get any pushback from Tehran's? I don't think he liked it. I don't think he liked the. But now now it is crazy. Can we fast forward it? Now every tell me a fight. He always says me attacks really in. He has no idea how special that is. That is very cool. He has no idea of every time. I see my every time. I see a texture by expected now down terrorist watch. No, isn't it? A little weird that the two roughest guys in the history of our sport of wrestling do kinda keep fighting at an arm's reach. I mean, we don't see the guys commit. We don't see those to those to be welcomed in. They get front row tickets. They don't see this is what you guys do you? What on the men you were doing it? When it's not even within the rules. I would think if anybody got behind the sport, it'd be the Braves boys, but I'm wrong. Yeah. Well, I think that's probably why because they are they're already doing like it's not about money for them. It's not about fame. It's about it's in. There is is said wrestling's of the most purest old. This tough is in the right? But they they take it to that extreme this is it's rustling or nothing. Boy. Oh, it's almost like. Yeah. Presley his life. You don't porn Elson Terry's, boys? I say porno imagine that'd be hard. But but maybe it's not not an I don't know how Kerry mentor same or keeps them. I don't know how that work, but he's in the will room quite for he's enter to tournaments already. This year is red shirt opens. You want them both beat hammers to. Yeah. Yeah. He's he has Terry genetics. I remember him as a kid. I remember him as a as a nine year old ten year old Kim number babysitting him because Terry what you know every once in a while like college super close of them. Hey can take care of my kids, and he trusts moving tells twenty year old kid, right? Holy shit. Man. I'll play with that Kim. And I would leave tired. I would leave that house on Ritalin. Yeah. And you can tell he just had the same little face that Terry would get bad. I'm just like. Shit. The kid is the kid is special. I think I think part of part of that you you would you know, through nature and nurture sure whose dad is it tend to king MO claims when he was living at the Olympic training, it king MOS, so funny. Sometimes I don't know when story how or if it really happened. I just laugh everytime. He tells me store, but he said that Terry brands would give you guys like a morning off tomorrow morning's off. So that was the cue for the guys. Oh, we can go out tonight. We could play around king MO said they would come back in Perry. Brands with being a tree with Benach, you leaders and taking notes when everybody came back to the Trade Center. Did that happen, man? I tell you what else such a good kid. I never went out. But would you believe that story's true shit kind of king Mosa he was the caffeine the one day, and he was having worn off a Fanta. Terry. Brands comes over goes, what's that? And most of orange pop and he said nothing else about Branston nothing else about three months later. They were in like Hungary at a tournament. Mogens beat six five loses by one point Terry. Brands comes up to him and says that orange soda came back bitch in the ass. Say it loud them. I didn't tell the story. How intense and we came back and bitch in the ass and walked off that was it. Yeah. Later. Yeah. No. I know. He's Terry bronzes trip on probably the most passionate guy. I think I've ever been just passionate man like people people think has raged that he has. But it's really it's it's passionate. I remember him calling means like freaking twelve sometimes. I mean just late at night. I'd be lay a world champ. Click. That's it. That's it. Doesn't say anything else. I'm just that's off. I'm getting ready to go to sleep. Really news to me could've been asleep. Like, Terry, Terry again, no. Oh, you like saving cash, right? You know, what even better saving hundreds of dollars on your car insurance? Well, if you dig that then get ready for this. You can do it right from your living room. All you have to do is go to Geico dot com and in fifteen minutes, you could be saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance. Extra money in your pocket. It just might be the most rewarding thing you do today. Let's get into some current events. Tomorrow night, Whitaker gasline. How do you see it? Oh, man. I feel like I'm gonna I think gasoline is underrated for this fight. I think I'm going to go back to and it's not just the Bice pink. Because I'm actually I heard a watching I came out to Australia to watching Window World title. The kid is special that kid understand range the kid understands distance his reflexes are second. None. I feel like he's in a knockout Whitaker. I fly. I felt he's gonna put him on the first round. I really do really really do get. That'd be the kid is he has his he's only six pounds over. I mean, he's he's done everything. Right. I I was talking to Rafael Cordeiro yesterday. He's like man he's like out of all my guys that I've ever Coachman this kid is I've never have seen somebody where I'm so sure that he's in the one of whether he's going to win. And this guy is coats everybody Matterson, so the two older Machida very excited. And okay, let's move down to the event assigned Anderson Silva, I typically I don't like to I don't like to bet I don't like to say who's going to win less through my friends, but I have had some Silvo. I think people are underestimating ashes so tremendously, I think style benders. Good. But I don't feel like I think he thinks he's a lot better than what he truly is. And I think in it's good to have that confidence. But you're also going to begin to Anniston soldier that guy that could throw on a freaking submission the fifth row zero no pun intended yet. No. You're exactly right. I was in there with Anderson Silva, John Jones, and fater Melnyk who get a lot of respect in the sport. So I got asked a lot of times who was better. It was always kind of hard to answer. But I could tell you this fatal was the most powerful and John Jones lives most dynamic Anderson. Civil was the smartest manners was the smartest. Guy. I'd ever been in there with and it was frustrating. He would have little styles and little strategies and little moves. And they were really simple, but they were annoying. They were and I would see them on the fly and go gosh. How did you think of that like in the middle of action? I would think how do you think do that? No. And I remember your thing. I remember your fight. Like it was yesterday. I'm he played Postle who who plays possible. Sure. Whoa. Okay. Okay. And that's kinda how I see even though he's forty three years old. I saw him at the elevator today. An says, hey, man, I've been meaning to tell you. He knew was coming challenge felt really good. What's up chat? And then he when he said vice you're never met him before not all that is cool, and those I hang Anderson told him a Portuguese says, hey, man, just remember an SS. And that's when I get reference, and I was twenty one and won the Olympics. You know that says I want twenty one and finally one of my world title, thirty one ten years later. But the reason why I wanted at the age of thirty one is because I remember that. Spiratou? And I remember that dream. I remember that far that I had the feelings after I want how how great it felt to be the best in the world. And it says the key to your victory on Saturday night. I want to tell you this is by what this ration- fi with that dream dude file by what that experience and she had. And and and it's scary because Addison that you see now is super charismatic when he's on television. Like, he Aniston that's happy typically and Aniston that was fighting chance. He he did not want to freak and talk to the media jor. Now, he's all about it. He's cracking jokes. He's dancing. I mean, he's doing and I'm just like, man. This is he's going to be dangerous because of that or it is very interesting. But I tend to agree with you. I I am leaning towards oughta Sonya, but I do tend to agree with you that there is still something special there. There was a very durable. And if you just go back and look at the fact that he went three full rounds with DC on notice, but he did that because of strategy he didn't necessarily try to win that fight in Farris. He was trying to get minutes and make the distance. You knew okay. I'm in over my head on changing, weight classes, and I have two days notice that take on DC. However, he still did use some strategies that a lot of people don't realize he did to maintain to preserve to protect himself into to eat up some minutes, and even even if you're playing for a close second, which is the way to go into a contest. But I think we can agree. The deck was stacked against him in a change weight classes on two days catch a plane and come and do this isn't being husband strategies, and I will be very curious what he's going to implement. He's also played some games in the media recently. We're most of his work has jitsu base. And he's wearing the key. And I don't know what the message is. I've been trying to I know there's a strategy. But I haven't. The Dow only used Shelley you can only you catch catch things like that Turkey though, right? I think he's trying to send a message of saying, hey, you believe we're going to do movie tie. I may pull you into my guard. I don't agree with the strategy. I don't know. That's what he's going to do. But I think this is the store that he's trying to tell there's a reason that all of his workouts have been with the gear on and in the ground. Something's going on there, psychologically, but you're dealing with a pro your deal with the master. You are you warn? I think nothing part of them when you're fighting somebody that you look up to money he may change when he when he sees Anderson Silva in the middle of that cage on Saturday night. It's going to it's going to be different show. Like, it's an I'll go back and talk about them Oka, Moi, Moi condo, Josiane, Josie Macau's gonna stop this guy. But then once I saw him and I saw his bride is. I'm just saying I was I was at the fights. I saw it. I'm just like he's a little starstruck. And if an out of sign that goes in their little starstruck. He's in trouble. This is a man does it matter if he can do triple back through triple spinning. If he's whatever if he's an author. He's in trouble. Yes. For sure us because remember he talked about him being his idol. He can talk all you want when they close katie's on. Okay. Shit's real now for sure everything's going to and that's a mess partially. I don't know if Israel is going to be like that. But I'm heading more towards Anderson and his experience how I just had this feeling that I may be wrong. He may get knocked out. But I had this feeling of trust in Anderson. Even even after even as a forty three year old, man. I I can I can see that. I can see him coming out in and pulling something out of his hat, and what the hell was that? If possible see I feel the same way as you that something spent either way Henry something special happens, whether the old line has this glorious moment and goes into a title shot, which he's been promised. Or whether this is a passing of the torch either way, it's a significant contest something special happens, and it may be two or three years, and it's like a fine wine where it. Looks better with time. But I do believe two or three years from now something special comes from this match. Whether it's the resurgence of Anderson or you pass the baton. But either way that I believe is the story on I think that's accurate. Yeah. Yeah. And again, he can go back. And you know, we're talking about Russell's Stephen I was talking about him earlier. I mean, that's how I had a beat to make the Olympic team. He passed the baton. I went out and wanted to go medal. I mean, it's. That could happen to your. I mean, Israel might be the next the next spider, which which I think there's only one is just so much think he I think he's unique of its own everybody has their own style. But I think I don't know, man. I just feel like Anderson is full of surprises. So watch out. I will tell you since you brought up Stephen Abbas, one of my favorite series of all time. In fact, it's a top two. It's either brands versus cross for number one or it's two thousand eight Las Vegas, you an abbess your guys series to make the team. So the best wrestling the scrambles, the hustles, the most conditioned the tech that I've ever seen innovative fans want to see that by the way. I just watched it recently about a month ago, it's on YouTube. So many of the fans wanna see we're talking about Henry Suto versus Stephen Abbas type that into YouTube, and you will see some wrestle if you don't enjoy that wrestling don't watch wrestling more. You're not a wrestling fan. Simple as that. Yeah. It's a great great great wrestling on. It's it goes down as one of the best Olympic trial trials matches of all time. Were you exhausted? I mean, I was I was exhausted. I was exhausted the process I was exhausted of Eritrean that everything is kind of happy to take a second at the US open. And then I had a I go back to I had a Russell my idol. I looked up to Stephen I remember I remember watching when I was at high school when seen him beat semi Hinton school of design whole man, I wanna be like that guy. I wanna Russell like you also warriors later who do I have I have ROY Israel Anderson Silva, you're too young to know this. But there was once a year called two thousand and one and kale Sanderson one four NCW titles now year that was amazing remarkable. But it sucked all the air out of the room. Because there was two other guys that had remarkable careers, Eric Guerrero and Stephen Abbas, but because kale was in that same class. They got no credit, but they won't one three NCWA titles. All in a row Bobo four time. All american. Guerrero, never red-shirted for the record and still one three. He would have been a four time. He never rich a lot of people don't know that about their growth store. They always forget that he wrestled as a true. And I guess just to your point about how incredible Abbas was in what you had to go through iron on iron just to get out of the country. It's remarkable at twenty years old come on. You should have been your redshirt year bars. Like everybody else not making Olympic teams. Yeah. Yeah. No. That's exactly that to me was more being the being that pioneer. Like, I've I've always since I was a little kid. I've always knew I was special like, and I say that sincerely like almost feel like hand is gift athletically and mentally. And I think it's almost like I found the perfect sport. And I was talking to Cordeiro yesterday about it. And he actually did I just I found the perfect sported. And what an how passionate physically I was. And I was able to use all that. And it became the the best in the world that you know, at at two thousand eight was the youngest in history. Foregone college. Did it I want a completely different route than everybody else because I have so much desire to do that. So we can go back, and we can even Rwandan back to TJ to me. Did you just another opponent in comparison to what I would have accomplished what I'm done? That's a real thing. What you just said there that you've found the right sport. That is such a real that you can have great athletes and tough guys if they find the wrong sport, they're not gonna have success. If you wanna put all your effort in the basketball, or maybe would have been great because you will work. But maybe you wanted to write ain't on impact by. You say you really have to find that right sport. And a lot of it is about passion. But some of those about lettuces them. I mean, you have natural speed. You have an ability to get a really good shape you have flexibility. There's it's I want to bring that up. That's the pair it than me talking right now. I got a young man I my dream swarm, but I'm not gonna push my dreams on them. It's going to be history. But it is very important that he's exposed to a lot of different things. We can find the right sport. If he wants to go on and enriches potential, but philosophizing about that you do that when you have a young one. But that's why bring that up. It's so important. I think you've found your right sports known. I think what it is. I'm I'm with thinking when it comes to when it comes to like get into no like the human spirit, and how far it could be push. I think I'm I think I have I have a good grasp on it actually do fill like I truly do fill fill. The an always tell people not an order for you to be the best in the world two things have to mesh like to be the one percent of the one percenters. I'm not saying that contender. I'm not saying a UFC fighter. I'm talking about to be the one percent of the one percent Olympic champion of see Chan beating being beating whomever. It's your heart has to match your ability. What is your heart? Your heart is your passion. Your will your desire your something that you want to suffer for, you know, the word of passion in Greek the definition of its original origin means suffering. Like, you have to be in love with something so much that she got to be one of the suffer force. So that's the heart. And now, let's get to the ability of the ability is. Is something that's either God-given or something that you've just you've mastered over time and time again, that's something. That's become repetitive. But you become a master of it. And and you enjoy the so when you're able to get the heart in the ability when they're able to kind of come together here, man. That's when you had that perfect Senator Jesse. But if one of lack in one of the two are lacking to your heart, your desire will your passion something that you want to seven four or at your -bility. Maybe you're not as gifted as you think as you think it is. So it's that connections kind of off. I like the, you know, so when you're able to connect those two things and ability holy shit Hashemi suffer. I like that.
