"What the heck. I. Wanted a week. It has been for this man William night gets another victory in official full-on roster spot in already houses. Octagon Abe. Booked at C two, fifty three later on this month William. How are you man crazy week? Goodness is really is a crazy week. For sure I mean besides crazy like how else would you describe this week because it started less than an auspicious way on the day before the fight with Cody Brundage you missed weight on your first attempt you nail it on the second try. Did you did you know that you're gonNA miss their. How did you react to that whole situation before you're able to to hit the way they're? Already knew going GonNa make way is that ran out of time I'm not I'm not the situation was just really right ardy not gonNa make were like peeing and everything else. So it was really just me running out of time I, went to sleep in and fucked up on a little time. 'CAUSE my time differences a three hour difference in. Connecticut. than it is in Las. Vegas, soul might phone was set a certain way and that should threw me off come lately to catch up to three hours. Autumn. Two rows tool seven point five, win out there to six I could have been to all five I could have went to twelve four. Cool free. Water and I still had left the cut. So it's not like I sat there and was all I can't cut anymore I got it Doug My. People people in this world need to understand I made wait. Never, missed I made late and through a pandemic I made weight was was being restricted I made late. Being almost two, hundred, sixty pounds again because I had no Jim, the foods were empty shelves in the whole nine eight. What added do I made to five to six and I'm going to do it again in another threes? You took on cody Brundage who was getting a lot of buzz over the last year. He comes out very aggressively which Kinda surprised me he shot goes for takedown as your back looked close to finishing the fight. But then it was like Deja, Vu of your ceus fight with Rocky Edward you're able to keep cody's arms tied up. He was unable to land any more damage, and in that moment, you look just like chilling at the beach in that spot like how much trouble where you actually in there when he was raining on those shots. When he was hitting me out talking to her D. and I told him, I was fine. Saw Me talking to him was a game changer that people understand like if a rough seas, you not responding fluttering than, of course, they're gonNA stop the fight but you can land a hundred shots. I mean, what are those hundred shots did not affect? What I'm saying so as on blocking I'm talking to her dean saying I'm fine I'm I'm good I'm good I'm good I'm good. I'm talking to him. So. After after the situation a hand on my arm and I've been in this position before I can either bridge up. My net or lock his arm down. So I chose a lot 'cause our down and that was the idea ants so After I. Did that I was in that situation already twice actually Jamile. I was in that situation with Jamile I was in a situation where Iraqi Edwards where? The, grappling exchanges wasn't wasn't to my caliber because it caught me they caught me I would say off guard they talk a good game about striking and then it turns into grappling. So it's like Oh. Okay. I thought we were GONNA GONNA stand up for, but they goes directly for the shop. which was kind of something you expected to because you're both in a in a weird way cut from the same cloth, right? Like people's cream all NCWA champion division one this Olympic hopeful Blah. Blah you can't count me out because at the end of the day you see where I come from what I've done. Ns like what if I was able to go to these colleges? What if I was able to get the opportunities as you like you did, you can't count someone out because you have the opportunity they didn't are saying like I come from a family that We may who'll what we have? You know what I'm saying we make what we have as long as there's a roof over my head and everything else. That's what my grandmother cared about in my aunt and uncle outside Caribou that's what they cared about. So you can't sit here and be like all. I was NC double a wrestler than a third. Dude I wrestled many people in different tournaments from all kinds of levels in a pin like I can keep up with whoever I want to keep up with I know for fact, that my wrestling I could have been in the Olympic. I could have been on the Olympic team people keep thinking that Oh it's easy to talk about I know the work I put in behind closed doors. I could have been on the Olympic team if I knew what doors the walk through to get there, I could have been in a division one school if I understood what was going on scholarships online but I didn't I wasn't I wasn't told these things. My wrestling coach mission of our have brought that to my attention, but it was already too late. Well. Luckily, you've chosen a different path and it's paid off for you because you know you're able to thwart his wrestling abilities and as you're talking to herb dean, you're telling them that you're fine. You get back to your feet he shoots again and then you start landing those William night elbows to set up the beginning of the end of the fight I mean going through the adversity and getting the win. This is like the way it should have been William for you I mean I feel like this was in a strange way. The kind of fight that defines you as a competitor is that accurate is accurate like I respect you I, respect, you know why? Because you actually do your research you've seen I've been in wars positions. You Got Terrence fight look at terrence I wasn't some. Some. He's about to lose positions got out Djamil. I was in some deep in deadly headlights with a guy who had almost sixty pounds. I'm because people don't know I made two five that day. And I was going up to see. Yes. When they told me that I was fighting heavyweight and boy and I still wait in. Drinking a little water from there. Literally that day I was tool five that day and I went against this guy that brought in with with credentials he had. You know what I'm saying it's not like I sat here fought no bums like an Iraqi Edwards where he comes from the people he fought in a skill level he has. Only been doing this for four years for ten years out of school I do anything. And do nothing I wasn't in the gym I wasn't lifting weights. I wasn't training as is gaining weight and play video games in. One thing led to a next and I got. I'm will fitness and thorns marshawn fitness in those to head people created such a monster in myself me. When did you? When did you feel like this was the right move for your you talked about how pivotal these coaches were for you obviously of align yourself with some some really strong people, Tyson. Chartier, you gave him a attack on Tuesday night. That's just the kind of guy that he has warned that backwards hat. When. Did you know like this? Is it man like you had the confidence especially if not doing something for that long once you got a school like, when did you know like this is this? Is it like I found by calling here? Is So. ME. The life is the the life experience that determines a fighter you gotta realize.

Bill & Ted Face the Music Review

"One, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, we met bill s Preston and Ted Theodore Logan in the movie bill and Ted's excellent adventure they returned in bill and Ted's bogus journey in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety one, and now almost thirty years later they're back in bill and Ted's face the music Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves return as well. Bill and Ted respectively, and this time they'll need not just their triumphant man to save the world but also their daughters I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes we're talking about bill and Ted face the music on this episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR here with me and Steven from his home studio is plan Weldon of NPR's arts desk. Linda and also with us from his home in Washington DC, we have JC Howard who is a producer of NPR's Ted Radio Hour and how I built this I. J. C.. Good to have you back good to have you back. So if you are all not familiar, there's not a lot setup that you need or these films except to say that Bill and Ted were introduced to us as teenage bro Friends who had a band and just wanted to have a triumphant band when they were older and eventually they got sucked into time travel and picking up different historical figures, and later we're going to try to save the world and there was. A whole story where they were going to ultimately right a great and triumphant song it's it is a surprisingly complex canonical story of which you need to know practically nothing in order to enjoy I think these films Stephen now that I have thoroughly set the table kind of what is your attachment to bill and Ted these movies. If you have one, well, I've seen bill and Ted's excellent adventure. A BUNCH OF TIMES I've seen bill and Ted's bogus journey a couple times. These are movies that have kind of existed on the wind for the last thirty years. I re watched these movies within the last five years I. Think I talked about the. What's making me happy on this show but still kind of needed to go back to be reminded of what happens in them going into this movie I mean this movie is coasting on goodwill. There is a certain amount of fan service going on here. I mean I'm not sure how many people were clamoring to revisit these characters almost thirty years later but at the same time. Something really really smart happens in this movie and you can tell before you even start watching it, and that is that it is ninety three minutes long all three of these movies are about ninety minutes long and I think they understand that that is the perfect lengthier. There is a certain amount of sequel bloat here. The first two movies are incredibly Chintzy. The stakes in the first one are no greater than maybe Ted we'll get sent to military school and you're there's like the entire fabric of space time can be ripped apart. This is a very shaggy movie. I. Think there are stretches where it sags but. I do appreciate the number of updates. You don't have the gay panic stuff that really dragged down the earlier movies are no gay slurs in this movie. This movie bothers to give its female characters a little bit more agency the women who become their wives barely have any part to play in the other movies, and here you get more of that you get their daughters who are given kind of their own subplot. So I appreciate that it's not just rattling around with these two dudes who are now middle aged, but they're taking an interest in people outside of just bill. Yeah and you do get their daughters. The structure of this one is kind of that they go on one journey through time and their daughters meanwhile who are played by Samara weaving and bridget lending pain go off and tried to get a band together for their DADS to play with on this epoch song that's supposed to save the world. So you kind of have the one journey going on the other journey going on then naturally in the third act it all comes together and I did like those two performances from the daughter's there are also some kind of new faces in this one kristen Schall plays Kelly who is The daughter of Rufus who was the George Carlin character in the original JC it feels to me like you are too young to have a moustache attachment to these movies but I have been assured that that is not the case because television. Yeah. That's exactly right. I was actually super excited to hear this movie was happening and I'm going to show my age a little bit and say that I was born pretty close to the release of the First Bill and Ted Movie of Bill and Ted's excellent adventure. So my first encounter with these guys was as as they say a most impressionable youth. And I was one of what I can only assume are millions of kids who watch bill and Ted's excellent adventure every time it ran on cable TV. The thing about the first movie is the problem that they needed to solve was very simple. Billon Tade just needed a good grade right granted the solution to that problem was a little larger than life and included doctor who like time travel home box and all but the problem itself was simple. The second movie bogus journey was certainly a little nuttier. It had killer robots and aliens and the grim reaper. Didn't feel like it hit quite the right notes for me. No Pun intended. So win a third film was confirmed. The main question I had was like, what are they going to do? Are they going to try to recreate the success of the original and go back to simple run of the mill time travel Orlean into the bizarre and crazy and from just the trailer? It was clear that they weren't going to just lean into the bizarre, but they were diving in head first. But I think what separated this one from the nineteen ninety one sequel is that it has a lot more heart. The original movie was really about the friendship of bill and Ted and saving that they didn't seem to care as much about saving the future as much as they wanted to just make sure that bill and Ted could still just be friends. So it had this kind of surprisingly earnest quality and I think that was what was missing in the second film in this third one for all of its bizarreness in all of its doubling down on death in heaven and hell, and all these kinds of weird things. It really reignites the idea that there are friendships and. Relationships here that are worth saving. Yeah I think you're absolutely right that they go back to the relationship between those two guys being the center of the story and I. Think it's really funny. One of the things that I think is featured in some of the the trailer stuff but they are both married they both have you know lovely wives that you have met before since they got them from the past and they have relationships with their wives that are completely enmeshed with their relationship with each other. So they can't conceive of having individual marriages that aren't some. Like a four person marriage I thought that stuff was sort of funny because I think one of the things that carries over like if you're going to take these guys in age them thirty years you have to either assume that at some point they became more normal, which is a weird thing to assume about bill and Ted. Or you have to assume that they are still very bill and Ted, which would mean that they are still kind of very fixated on this idea that they are a duo and they are always together and they are each other's right hand Glenn you had indicated on twitter that. You perhaps did not have the same nostalgia for these characters that perhaps I have and others may have what is your take care? All right. The ticker about to hear from me Linda Holmes is going to be a subjective it's rigorous. It's clear eyed it is on demand by the gauzy scream nostalgia because unlike all y'all I never saw these movies until this week just to prepare for the show and I didn't see him for very simple reason I didn't have to I. Mean I was a junior in college nineteen, eighty, nine I was studying marine biology. I was dating a string of profoundly unfulfilled women and. Being. On a college campus and eighty nine and not here boobs heinous strange things are afoot at the circle k just over and over and over. So I felt like I got it. And think about the time late eighties early nineties mainstream. American. Comedy was kind of stuck in this catchphrase based mode and I was like, okay. I don't need to see this while I've seen them all now and I'm here to tell you. Sure I guess that's your thing. I like the Guy Listeners of the leads I. think that's the appeal here but left only once an excellent adventure. It's a visual gag that gets tossed off. It's a Freud at a mall holding a corn dog and it's like, okay, fine. You got me I mean it's low hanging fruit, but you got. And in face the music this new film shore on Paper Samara, Weaving Kristen Schaal Holland freaking Taylor they are gunning for me they are coming. But ultimately didn't stick. It's not supposed to. That's not what it's for. It just evaporates on contact with the eyeballs and maybe that's exactly what the world needs. Right now is dumb sweep dumb but I

So Elliott you I was gonNA say there's one fighter who's GonNa use this extra time to their advantage. Oh is going to be you. How have you sort of navigated the waters in your neck of the woods with the pandemic and everything? Has it been? I don't know what the restrictions were like over there. Were you still able to? I'm sure you were able to find ways. However you can do it to get work in. But what does that been like for you? As you're trying to get ready and improve, your skill set well at the end of the day. Again I'm very blessed to have a lot of love. Amazing Opportunity set in front of me like. My Dad built with Jim About two year I think it must have been two years ago now, AM. About God we saw this Old Life Flimsy Summer House. You know the wolves. Basically every time the wind blew freighters to top over and the United.

My Dad never really has a lot. Push me any or alcohol. Want this he wants me to want.

I know it will get to point where he can do with these movements anymore. You know the fact that he's been putting himself on the line. Just to help me is is absolutely amazing, which is why I want to go out and make him proud, and then you know, be able to help him out. you know as as as time goes on.

"At least that's my take on. Are you hoping for like your future sake that a certain guy wins on Saturday I guess? Make Your path to the title a little bit shorter. Mental and like you said because muscle is calling out akin the as it's called, Thomson Random People. That's not even the top. Domains, they can imagine if it doesn't about what was going to do so. It was when I filled owl. profiles profile bench because like I said I with my fight test. The both got held back with the coronavirus domain lane so one up history. I'm on the most streak in division, so this mean Darren go go from there. Have you and your team and told that that one way or the other that you're next in line? Do you know how that's going to play out at the Split? Evans went. Kendall Basically over you're saying they're trying to see weapons Then go from that and your division. The division has been stock nasal all right, so it's good to get a little bit of. Let's rapidly cannon Gogo from now. I! Mean you certainly the resume for a title shot? You have the long winning streak. It's super impressive so. What's like your realistic mindset right now with getting to the are you prepared to fight once more twice more or like? How do you think it realistic? Play out? I duNno, sit him coming back, probably saying. If you go, but when a fight one five foot tall, why don't you fight trump? Contender spot an. Now. Accident happening look and see that. Megan tall shots to earlier was. so. one more probably before the taller shop and then go from dabble. A is guaranteed tall shot. NEX Who would make I mean Burns seems very likely I think that actually makes a whole lot of sense. It obviously depends on who wins on Saturday night, but you know there's colby there, but he is who he is, so that might be a tough one. Get. There's Woodley, but that's. He's lost to Sri at this point. There's wonder boys coming off a good his last night. What actually excites you in this division outside of fighting for the title right now? The normal contenders spot right, which is Brazilian probably probably is number one. It dominated garb augments dominate so the probably problem probably. Are you willing to take a different fight? If it's offered to you as long, but it has to have. A title shot after right. Yeah, it. Yeah, that's being contract guaranteeing Tasha. There's no way I'm going nine ten. Dollars. Anyone above me, really Koby I don't like him is because of the ways also it'd be a good fires Yes, inaudible, really enter of me can get to smoke some. evil. What's so weird to me Leon and I? Don't know if you've seen this, but I'm a storyline guy. When it comes to fights like I look for storylines in every card to just positive thinker I can't believe more. People aren't throwing their. You know their persistence towards you fighting Mazda like there's such a story there like how does everybody not WanNa see this fight I don't understand it. I don't know. When it happened. For the fight, but Muslims are want WanNa fight blah, Blah Blah and tokens shit. Is a weird thing. Donald Sterling's is the perfect. Don't Wanna I WANNA. Kill him. You want to kill me and that's it you know. Maybe he's a perfect line. To let's. Again if it doesn't get win, that's the accident goes on. Why do you think he doesn't say your name in this list of guys? A way of thinking knows that the same knows limit. is on Games, we'll talk five for. Is. Economic Nate. Wonder Boys will strike is in. The. Past it. You know what I mean. You know what I mean so I know whether wonderful by lightweight. Das- did yes. Juror will not not watch Hunkin. Everyone knows that you know I mean the suspects. When you think timeframe wise that you'd like to get back like obviously a lot of factors in play for sure, but if we're if we're up to you, when would you like to get back in there and fight again? Late August September are not going to. Be In September. I'm Erin So. That probably. Can you fly to the states at all and come back? Like what's that like? Because I know Dan? Hooker had didn't have a lot of issues going there, but he had a quarantine for fourteen days once he got back. He couldn't be around kids or anything like that. Think should be able to trust the sites. Currently won't get back Looking like what likely aided. By Kengo think. Can Go to sites. Well there's some there's a lot of cards filling up, so it won't like this funniest sites and who wouldn't want Leon to slot and one of these cards, but One of the things that you've been doing and I was talking about this. A little bit is that you've been raising awareness for the black lives matter movement, and it's been a crazy year here in the United States with the pandemic, and then on top of that you had the police brutality, racial inequality and I guess that message of hope is starting to get displayed around the world, and we've seen folks like yourself Israel out of Sonya, John, Jones Clarke and others do their part. Use the platform for this movement, which should be very much commended and I think we both agreed that we are a ways away from getting to where we need to be but. What is what is the the movement been like over these last several weeks in your neck of the woods Property Saving America. Dr. Deck. Yeah, probably probably saying like in the states. protested marching in China. To to do in a positive way into should lie under under. What's going on in the world? full black for black minorities Wouldn't try impressionable been doing it for for many many years, and so let's let's say also been sought charges off with. May Down till in Jim Iowa for live crimes, especially in the got a big guard new UK. So we're looking star charity at at the moment so I've been focusing my time on that and also helped so you've been able to to keep busy into that. How far away do you think from the charity? Being officially launched at this point? What we're in talks. With politicians and stuff, so this is close not far away. Nominee, no doubt Denver for fight so parliament conway firm resolvable apart from now I. It's good 'cause. This deal was big close. My Heart in my friend got killed. Literally. Two weeks ago, that stabbed man. died on two weeks ago. So this is one of the. Main focus right now is to try and push that and try to help that in Charleston awareness. Around Knife Crime UK is 'cause is a big big sigma. Yeah, I'm sorry to hear that his has things improved it all over the last several weeks, or we still kind of at square one here with the knife crimes. It's improving further game. The charges saw it and what we need to do, and what we what what what planned in who we need to. Improve that way. That's moving forward in that way. really make no.

"You guys know this by now. The three title fights of course who's been verses Mazda. Alexander Bulkin Oscar versus Max Holloway for the featherweight title we Peo- dirtyjohn versus Josie out for the vacant bantamweight title rest the main card, pretty fascinating and its own Radio Rosa Unions versus Jessica on Drudge to we all know how that I fight went rose, had the best round of her entire mixed martial arts career, and then just got androgen with that just violence slam to put that fight away, and she became the champion. She would go on to to lose John Wiley and I feel like the winner of this fight. Especially Rosenman Eunice wins is probably in line to John Lee later on this year maybe early twenty twenty, one just kind of depends on. How this world books right now then to open things up, we have the fascinating fight between page vans add to in my opinion winner lose. This'll be here last night in the AFC man. What a tough task! Ahead! Her and Amanda Hiba Zain. Listen if you guys are having a bad day. If you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, go to the archives of our youtube page and watch Amanda Hiba at the virtual. Media Day yesterday it was. Just so bubbly like it's just GonNa. Put you integrate moods. That's an interesting fight as well.

He's going to be back in the octagon next Saturday on July eighteenth banks, going take on Ramani, and this is a fun. Fun, one, it's a catch weight of one hundred fifty pounds grant Dawson is one of the bright and up and comers and a loaded featherweight divisions have been one of the bright prospects in the United States for several years. I remember the first time I interviewed him. He was like nineteen or twenty years old. He's getting ready to fight for Titan FC and The kids pat a UFC future for years and years now he's here. He's three now and the promotion looking to make it four now we'll hear from the prophets later on in the program. We're going to have some European flavor on the program this week as we have. You have debutante Modesto Costas joining us this week as you probably know, he was the former cage. Warriors light heavyweight. HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! He's just twenty six years old. He's won his last six fights finished all six of them, and he was originally scheduled to fight Venetia Moreira on the July Fifteenth Car which this Wednesday an Moreira is out and full transparency. We had this conversation this past Friday before the opponent changes made. You don't really notice it too much in the conversation, honestly, because most of the. The interview is about getting signed this whole crazy year when his debut was supposed to happen et Sarah, so we talk about Venetia 's a little tiny bit, but for the most part it's about Madonna's historic to get here. You'RE GONNA. Hear from Modesto Cosco one of the nicest fighters that you'll ever hear from. He joins US ahead of his fight with fellow newcomer Andres Michaelis from Greece. Greece so that should be a fun fight. Leeann Edwards is going to join us in around twenty five minutes, or so to talk about everything that has happened since his scheduled mate event fight with Tyron Woodley got cancelled in March due to the pandemic, his thoughts on the main event this weekend, and just as overall thoughts on where he stands right now in a very interesting and. Quite loaded welterweight division, but I the main event this Saturday features the champion, so I thought it would be appropriate to bring on the nicest effort champion of the UFC, Steven wonderboy Thompson, in fact, wonderboy was the last guy. To defeat Hor hey, mas at all and the UFC did so you've see to seventeen in November of twenty seventeen lot of seventeen in there, and this happened in Madison Square Garden, wonderboy swept the scorecards Mazda had his moments, but it was a pretty one sided win for Stephen. Thompson plus Mazda Doll said to ESPN earlier this week that if he beats come the Saturday, he has this kind of a short list of potential challengers in one of the guys on that list was Stephen Thompson, so let's get his side and his perspective on everything going on for this Saturday at one seventy in general with Mr, Stephen Wonderboy Thomson..

I've done walking down one and I wanted to vomit can make you sick if your motion sickness. Yeah I don't know if you ever saw the movie Ready Player one. Oh My god qualify. It's going that route that way. Jimmy Jimmy have. I not say that before. I know you don't listen to me. Sometimes I said many times I told them to watch ready player one. It's such a great movie Steven Spielberg. I'd never seen it. Mr T. Jimmy. It's great because I'm into the marvel movies and stuff. Jimmy thinks that anything I recommend is just going to be not beneath him but like to Kitty and definitely. I mean it's got an eighty five just got eighties museum and honestly it's got eight five. I'm all in the eighties right. Everything's in the eighties if you look at stranger things back in. It's in new ghostbuster to come out. You got a one point. Eight five is really cool man. Yeah check it out. It's like the whole social distancing. What I'm in that thing with my buddies edging over and I see them in the distance and I run on. We give it looking at me. What are you doing on going? Virtual Hug Orion. Let's go MERC some fools dude. I'm getting me one. I'M GETTING A and we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA meet up again. We're GONNA get a hundred percent or so. That's going to be fun. I can't wait to we're GONNA do it Jimmy. What else do we want to talk to a young boy about just out how happy we are to see you and I guess before we let you go I mean the amazing thing about you is what a good life you lead like. You know the big news. This week is a John Jones again. And it's like some guys just have a hard time getting on the right lane and staying there and it's it's hard to watch a guy who is so good and who. We love watching so much and he's so talented. Just make mistake after mistake. And it's like it's a little frustrating and it's good. You've stuff like that well. I don't you know I was all I've always been always been asked. You know who's the guy that's going to be John Jones and I tell them is going to be John. John's John Jones is the one that's defeating himself tonight. And I hate to say because I know I want the best for the Guy. You want the best for everybody. You know the talent like that with with that talent. I mean they don't want to see it go away because he's not. You know doing stuff that you know you're not supposed to be doing you know what I'm saying like I mean it's it's I don't know if he just has a bunch of yes men around. He needs a Mr Teen is what he needs any around. Let him know what he's doing wrong you know he's he's got the brothers so that's strange you know he's got a little brothers. He's got fan having a having a firearm. The light heavyweight champ. You don't need a firearm. That's the advantage to being John Jones. You can handle yourself without that shit. You don't need to carry that around with you. Honor percent man and he got so many people look to that Guy. Watch HIM EVERY DAY. Like how do you not? How do you not do the right thing you know? So hopefully. Hopefully he'll keep in mind Jimmy. You're talking to southern boys here so our mentality is. Everybody should have a firearm but but she be skilled. And it's I know I wouldn't be good with it. I know I know waving out the car window. Somebody cut me off. You don't know what what comes out and we were we were. Ms How you kind of get the the the the wrong wrong I was. I was taught at a very young age. What a firearm can do in how to handle a firearm. And a lot of these kids you know who don't know who don't grow up. Who had no idea how to work a firearm going? Their Dad's closet don't know how to work in next thing. You know you know. They end up killing themselves tool. It's too it's getting David Hammer. Well I have nothing has firearms. I find the people own them. I was just saying Jones is a guy because he did something wrong with it. It's like what are you doing like especially John that you're going to go out doing job like you know you're not supposed to do that. It's just crazy or correct. Listen He's not GONNA learn from any of this shit but I gotta ask you guys something. Did you guys see on Netflix? Tiger King anybody? Yes I watched. The episode is the day. You can't make this shit up. How humans in the world like the I remember I was GonNa vote for when he was running for president. That's how I knew him how.

"It's Habib. It's very difficult for me to make my silent heart to contact. That will be an issue. Speaking of nobody wants the fights. Anybody you look at guys. Were super popular right now. And when the boys populists how you look at a guy like hey mas without who? I'm a fan of I. Love the style. I like his attitude. But I mean you beat handily. It wasn't a close fight. If I remember correctly I remember you beating. It was basically what you do to everybody. So it's like is it Mr. You can help me with this. Is it just because your sons your super so squeaky clean Nice Guy? I mean not in a cage the beast but what is it. Why was way managed without the three piece? And that's him. He's not he's a real dude. You're real dude. You bested him in a fight. He's what on he's got the bad mother effort title and this and that he's you know headlines and stuff you know nobody's saying hey why don't they run that back. Yeah nobody nobody's really. I think it has a lot to do with what he has done in. Who is put away you know. He not doubt to who beat me you know. And he said well. Everyone's decision in London ended any knocked out. The guy who was supposed to be you know who is like the the next champion. You know Been asking in five seconds along with the height he that he's been getting a lot lately with what happened behind. State backstage with show. It was never D- Liane Edwards. There's it's a combination of go out. There knocking do dal and and become the backstage stuff on his personality and who he is I like is it all too because he is a real guy. He's a real guy he's not the guy who's WHO's trying to pretend to be that guy right. It has a lot to do with it which inspires me a little bit. You know. I ended up beating. He lost and now he's one of the most popular guys in the US. You know after two wins or three wins. It's also a bit of a comeback to like what people are suckers for what we see as a comeback and there's something about having lost two straight for him to come back. I think there's something about people and he's making a comeback and it's just exciting to watch somebody you come back from a couple of losses right right. And now he's like you wanted to put most popular guys and Mazda so it makes sense for him to be at the top I mean. Do I think he deserves the title next? I think that they would have given it a Liane Edwards. Who's on like at nine? Fight winning streak. You Know Easter Guy. Nobody wants any part of Leeann Edwards. Woodley has been postponed. But he's a guy that it seems like people want nothing because polite guys who don't have to draw a connor. There's no advantage to fight them because they can only hurt you and they're not like the name that McGregor or somebody like that is. I think that's a problem that it kind of like that. Call at least at name like He. He's a Dick but he's he's popular enough to at least get pay-per-view numbers. I think that they would have put Edwards and Mazda doll for the fight for the title instead of these other guys. Because they have beef you know they. They had the he got the three P. Sent in a soda in backstage. I figured that would be the fight to actually make before they would give anybody one of those title. The title shot. I would love to see Uber's on Edwards. That's what we would love to. That would be a good fight but everybody sees Edwards He. He's got good stand up but he's not afraid to wrestle you either. He did that against Luca when he joined us into. Luke took him down left Iraq but he took him down numerous times around so he. He's not afraid to do it. He did it against the already got. Yeah I mean listen besides Matt Brown and Pets. You you can make a case for any of those other losses if you call them losses. What your fight. You WanNa fight you on the best ever stepped in the Arctic on a Stephen Thompson. J out there too nice. I want you to be the opposite of John Travolta at Greece when he got to. I want you to be a keyboard. I got you rub. I'm trying to do references that Mr T. again guys. At the fair when Burnett you're GONNA be total opposite. I don't respect you man. I want you to get the fight you thinking planning on. I was planning on coming out there. Of course quiz had his lineup. And all that's happening now so I was planning on Komo to Long Island. Hopefully seeing you guys hopefully if if it does after this whole thing is over any of the scheduled fight or I have a fight with. Won't be up there to see you so I want to do school been there. What since September? Yup Yup come down to see our place I want you Jimmy grow tragedy out of you and you can watch me throw a hook punches and see how poorly I'm doing it. I don't know how to marry. Clara has thrown out of the school. Already I mean he's he's trying to all you're doing good. He's very encouraging but my feet. I don't know how you guys do that without planting your feet and thinking of every time you do it. It's fucking it's all funny to this is our lives. I'm you guys where I'm sure like I said it's the before Stephen is that if let's say you stop fighting tomorrow. I don't think your life changing one bit. I think if you had another one hundred million in the bank I think is still doing the kids glasses and playing with the knock on national exam. That's what you do. You know as a martial artist mandate the the the feeling you get when you know. You're changing somebody's life changing for the better. Your teaching them something that they can't get anywhere. They can't get from baseball or basketball. You know. Listen you know you're not putting your not put in uncomfortable situations pitching or hitting a baseball bat or sliding into a base. You're not you're not learning more about yourself when you're in those kinds of situations and I'm teaching. We got him. His youngest sold out their own. Goodness and you know and these kids.

"You're not doing a good job of selling Jitsu when I was little when I was little. Ice Is the role of him. And that's all he would do. He would mummy and trying to cover my face. That make it as Costra phobic as possible freaking out and and he's just doing just to be comfortable with it he was. He was in a stern. He's trying to. It's it's part of the training that is part of what doing is making yourself. Breathe right like when someone's on top of that. Most people myself included with panic. Well this the piece talking about is making somebody who's making young wonderboy comfortable in uncomfortable situations. Yes understand if they're at a young age too so they don't understand the danger that they are in very young so you can teach them some pretty intense put them in pretty intense situations. You're saying when they're young baked learn the they learn it but they don't realize his in your face they don't realize the danger situation there in so they don't quite develop the fear of it. Yeah when they come more intelligent that they realized wow that was. That's dangerous. Paid off round four of the first Woodley fight. I've never seen a more claustrophobic situation than that watching you. I kept thinking. He's GonNa tap tap he's finished and you survive that route. I think that was the fourth round of the first was. I got knocked down twice and I was just just had no idea where I was then. I was in a deep guillotine choke which which one it could have been better. Thank God it. Wasn't you know he kind of went? More of his back was up against the cage. If he was more on his side it would have been a lot tighter but Yeah for a second. There was prepared to go out for sure. You know if there's an arm bar or or or he'll hook or something like that out definitely tap I mean I'm thirty seven years old so you know another another full on blown-up knee. I probably in my career but when it comes to getting like that it's funny what you say in those situations to that wasn't the DA teen and for a split second. I was able to breathe and talk and I said to myself I was like you know. All these people came to Wall Street fight. I said I wasn't tap tapping and I actually said that when I was in the guilty and then next thing you know I could write when I said I could tell his arm starting to get tired and then I popped my head off but those are the flights that I love. Most you know other words. Even the Matt Brown fight went That was the first time I had a really bad wait. Cut was done thirty thirty thirty seconds. Maybe thirty seconds into the first round I was just done but those are the ones that are remember the most the ones I'm more proud of because when most people would give up you know you'll learn more about yourself in those kinds of fights you know there's nothing worse nothing worse than getting tired in a writer proud of not. If you're a couch deal but I had enough. It got too hard for me. But if you're not if you're a guy that's route guy. It sounds sucks. I get it hurts. You know you're not going to give up right and you know that you don't move as well as you normally would have. Had you been you know a number one good lake good good shake? He's in great shape. It was just the WACO so bad. But even when you're tired you know you're you're tired or you know your It's it's it's a hurt in your chest. It's like a burning burning man. It's a burning sensation. But it's IT'S A it's a it's a It tests your will fight of the will of your you have to out will your guy you know you have to just one hundred percent also is something telling you like it could be over. If if you're always relate to only really happened to me one was the fight where almost finished a guy that I got tired and I remember I on me just I make all like this this this battles in your head like all you gotta do is cover up the two seconds more and it could be over but there's something stopping you from doing that. So you find out a lot about yourself in those battles that something that a lot of people from that they definitely can't relate on the couch they can't mighty listen. They don't know what that feeling is of this. This torture could be over in a second. Just cover up a couple of seconds. It could be over but it's something that's not letting you do that. And that makes me or should make yourself proud that you make those decisions because right now and you'll learn like the truest about somebody in those situations you know the truth about you know You're a quitter or not. And people say they're not quitters until they're in those kind of situations and even at the highest level. I've seen guys like be very good at putting you in that situation. He'll be I've seen dies by could be even then it's like you know You know there are just being just punished. And then they're then they're you know they turning over to their back in the pretending not to defend the choke and the next thing you know. They're getting tapped out. You know it's like you. There's something if they weren't finished talking to you to make you deserve this. Michael Johnson. Glad we both don't give up. Just give up. I don't like doing big guy with with with that. Spirit Edson Barboza. And when he could be he had nothing. There was no way. It's embargo. She'd been in there after the first thirty seconds of that fight or whatever it was it's embarked. But did he stop no did he? Did He. Tap on some Barbosa is a beast? That was another one too. It was like it was the beginning of the round already standing up. He's got his shot. And then you know less than a minute later. He's fucking tangled up against occasionally. This is GonNa be a long round ups tap as well. I think that's how it's going to be with a diversified and everybody wants to happen but I mean Tony Ferguson. Doesn't have great takedown defense. He he just doesn't. He plays a lot of his back. He likes to elbows but beeps control on the ground. Just to get a higher level. I think he may have a little bit of a hard time with his reach. But Tony Ferguson walks forward. Which makes the take down a little bit easier for could be because they'll just run right into double or whatever. It could be huge. He's he's a big five hundred sure and but I think I think he's going to be the same thing like to be does everybody but has he fought a guy as comfortable off his back as Ferguson and has he fought a guy with the gas tank diversion has i. Don't I don't know I don't think so. I think beeps hardest fight today. I mean a well one of the hardest nights and was the was Alla Quinta when you want aliquippa that was such a good bye. Now is such a short notice. I think aliquippa full on training camp. But I don't know if you had it full on training camp with that but I figure there's not a lot better. He's supposed to fight felder. Yes gotcha Gotcha Gotcha Gotcha Great. But even the changing of an opponent definitely change your Game Plan. And you don't do that you know a day or even a week and mess with you but I thought he did very well. What do you think about a possible? Ferguson? Geeky Mac Ferguson. Because he says he can't get into Russia they do by closed down so he had to go back to Russia and now he probably can't get out of Russia after two thirty nine so another look engaged and Tony Ferguson. That'd be a that'd be a nasty taste. Hoops citing fight. Anybody who fights gates is in for just a rough fine a tie. It's like it's like when you think of people fighting a Yoel Romero you know you're you're leading that five with an injury. You're no you're you're taking life of your fight career when you fight him. It's like when you like the same thing I get the when gauging. He's actually looking better now than he's ever more precise. I mean and the power he has. I Ferguson is almost like a Terminator L. Kukuh the Boogeyman. He keeps coming before. But is he going to be able to take those shots from just engage? You know especially that that first round will be Ed. I mean all fight. I think it's both of those guys. Have mentality there those guys or bulldogs? You just have to let loose you know. Do some guys you know they. They like to have the game plan. They like to the the mental in the guesswork out. There those these type of guys you just let them go and they'll just go out there and just hammer down just fight. There's no thinking there's just want they just want to. They want a battle there. They grind their beach there there. I would be excited to see that fight. Then the Ferguson. Play against anyone gates you connors and fight. I wanted to see and it seems like nobody. He's got to be very frustrated because he's being overlooked he. He's not the name that connor is or that Habib but nobody seems to want any part of fighting. Just think hobby or Cubby Hubby I always say could be too but.

"Stop being such a flop in the sack. Effective using the striking the balloting. The kicking. The timing would your karate in the octagon inmates martial arts. Where's all the other guys? No other way. That's the thing like I guess I guess our our karate style and an like I grew up as a kid doing point fighting when I turned twelve years old. It was contact kickboxing. So he fought back in the seventies and eighties. You know doing full contact kickboxing and we were. We were geared more towards the full contact Seem I guess. The more the point fighting thing it was a it was a proving ground. It will sit in the point. The point the point the tag crotty tag. Say What I call fake fighting tag. I mean there are. There are some some benefits Be Able to close the gap or to be able to hit your opponent. I which you're seeing my michael page venom. He's very good at what he most of his career was doing. And he implemented into You know in. May as well but you starting to see more guys with the karate style you know like Conor McGregor. It's gotTa Karate. Style whom as well garnered ellison does so. You're starting to see more value starting to see more people trying to study the I guess I guess the style is well. It is a little bit different but we came up more a little bit different than the most. The the the popular American Karate stylist recall on. I've played US honestly because because you Tizi because you made way more real and we had we had to. We had that we had to alter styles so that even with our striking. Because I'm the fast way to take somebody out the punch to knock them out. I mean it may not always be the best but it's always the fastest so we had. We weren't going to give that up our strike so we had to go back. Say you know what. Let's we can't adapt as well. That's what you did see. Did they started way back? When it started adapting and changing and changing it adapting. They they went from went. A whenever the what's the gentleman's name became Brazil and talk the Gracie's they brought a classical style of Ju Jitsu and then grace you've got a hold of it. And then they made all these adjustments and changes and it became a huge a much better ground system. You know what I'm saying it's meant. Is that mentality that you gotTA respect it? You gotTA respect the willingness for takes your style and work at improving. Make it better so you know what I all of elite and I said you know what we're GONNA do. The same thing with their horizon system. We you know we import especially in industry situation to the ground. Anyway you Youtube Street fights and just see ninety nine percent of you. They end up getting slammed or taking down. Your throat knocked out with one punch. They're getting their head smashed into a bumper Italy. Yes exactly so you gotta know we teach our guys your kids to you. Know you're there learning the ground the wrestling into stand up. We let them spar over their full out. You know we call it. Kim postponed its intimates. Boring you know guys man. They scrabble each other. We got little five and six year olds and because they're not they're not. They're not strong enough to hurt. So they go out and what we love it when you see street fights and you see one guy who knows. Jitsu in one guy. Who doesn't it's funny to watch. How effective really is against a person who doesn't train at all? No kidding one hundred percent I love it. I love watching a loved watching those guys with with some skill. You know doing work with guys who don't and people it's funny people don't know what they don't know they think they can. They think they know they can take a punch. You know after we get guys that come into the school all time the school all the time right and they think they think they do it you know and after a day or two and they just get humbled a little bit and they don't want any of it you know you realize that to be honest with. Ya You know and you see on the street. Sorry sorry it's usually. The asshole is the one who doesn't have the training and the quiet one is usually the one who is trained but usually the asshole is the one getting beaten up because he thinks he can do something he can't do that. He taught me man the loudest guy in the room is not the one you should be worried about the guy sitting in the corner not saying anything is one YOU GOTTA. Watch out for true. I'm allow mother and I'm at Macquarie. Must not a hundred percent the stairs? The guy to be there to kind of all that up your except h. They're definitely exception. It's funny I told my students like Puerto before drunk. That got me more students than probably my gst fight. And it's what I like about. What I what I point out is is that that guy did not care. Drew started at me and I can't get my family was behind my three little girls. My wife and I don't look like a whip so that guy had the nuts to mess with me. If we could mess with anybody you know. It's like misty. Said hundred percent could neutralize the right hand. I am. He hits the floor. Is it my kids guard? But it's nice to have that option of just GONNA make a big deal about it. I go what they really don't understand it. That the trump white belt. It's not a big deal at all but it's because we used to deal with people day in and day out that know how to get out and really is that easy and it's a joke so turned a lot of people onto jujitsu which I like. I don't know how we're going to. That's awesome because they see the real of it. I see how it could be done without actually hurting. I've always wondered when that guy sobered up. Did he ever contact you or a message or anything or normal city? Ever say he was sorry. Nothing nothing at all. He was a dirt bag. Even that got broken up he was. I was still drunk but he was making rude gestures to my mind right dude. You look at the four methodology. Oh yeah glad that your your honey and your kids were there because you can really. Yeah you say he just people just don't know they just don't know cool. That's a relatable situation like watching two guys in a cage. Fight is not relatable to most people watching some drunken ass in a restaurant is very relatable. Who else had didn't Ride Hall had Juanita Cloud Guy Outside or something like that took down mount that the guy was saying he was going to bite his nose off. He was in his days. You're sitting there and you should all is we've installed you just stay amounts of controls them. It's like having a superpower even cause Ryan comes here and get some work in and stuff as well and I know physically stronger than him. I know more athletic than but can't do anything with them. Do nothing man. That's like the prime guys who doesn't look like he can do anything bucket. Just kill you get mad at Ryan Ryan has a. He's a very A happy go lucky kind of guy. He's very he's extremely intelligent. But I think there's a dark side in a sinister Stein senator side. Yes was guys if he if he win trouble he would. He would take rain your head off or probably just for hangar off and then maybe break into the finger off just because you know. He says he's got yeah. Yeah Man I imagine as a kid you probably got picked on a lot before you had skills and I think once he developed skills I think you know. He's just like 'cause he's he's a nerd. He knows that he's a key he'll tell you he's Jujitsu Gig. He's just he's just on another level of lifted anything fighting Ryan Hall Sponge and he's He's a wizard when it comes to. When it comes to fighting it could be a really warriors. Dangerous Guy Him in dark alleys. Sure well first of all you re. I know you're humble guy. Basically worry McDonald started rolling fucking leg. Lock on you basically started with you. You know full fledge leg lock and you got out and you beat his ass. So you're a very humble but let me tell me. I know you're not listen. One the boy with Ryan Hall and I know you guys don't WanNa take credit for it but I know he's working all around but his kick. I first of all I love watching Ryan whole I love purists. Like whether it's your round whether yourself at the karate guys at the very top of their craft you. I Love Your sidekicks Dude Love. Thank you almost underused weapon. In all of them as I thumbs up he agrees that I loved the sidekick. I love it. I work at my kickboxing trainer. Decent work my wife because she she had a kickboxing imagine. What not so fun. I want to tell you that's awesome. Space Time in bullshit. I just old. There was a year ago at thirty six years old. She never did any sports. She did kickboxing. Columbia's dilute some baby weight and actually took a fight as you wanted the capital in Manhattan. I was so proud but I'll bring for the whole. Are you helping him with those kicks? Got some good gigs down down. Many times we're GONNA striking course vice versa. We will cut you just things like that. We have a good time but the guy. He's just a sponge everywhere. He's got karate guys. Up there that are tackling does styles that help them out as well but you know the hook cakes and things like that. I mean I wanNA take full credit of it but He he's definitely worked. We worked on a lot of stuff but but he also has some guy's gone up there. I think he's I think he's at his chip now. Don and his brother who was ultimate fighter with him has helped him out with a lot of stuff as well so what? I like is that with his style. It's so safe 'cause he can throw those kicks. Were just reckless. Abandon me about back and if guys get right past that range you know so he can clean and so fast with it. He so fast with knows what he's doing you know when he gets on your leg. There's no where does this go? Where does that go there? And it's and it's done goes to it goes to the next moves next. Move next move. He goes to the only disadvantage to that is if you look at a guy like for doom who is never fade to throw a punch or a cake. You didn't give a shit if you took him down. And then he wound up getting a little bit sloppy throwing a punch against steep. I think that's the only disadvantage to being so good on the ground is if you forget that you can get knocked out it. Well he run after punch hindsight's twenty but Russia and I don't give a shit back this three times. Trust me. You don't do that. You don't just rush in which is now. Are you putting anything or? Are You doing anything? training any kind of March. Start working with my man Sarah. No I started taking. You should match. Long Island. I'm in Manhattan. I started taking kickboxing in Manhattan. I just started and then of course the corona virus as soon as I fall in love with it and start taking it three times a week. The Gym shuts down. It's because I'm enjoying it plug. Albert Tiger Schulmann's Jimmy Rivera. He got a hyperloop. For what forever. Right yeah yeah. It's hard for me to throw Hook Punches. Those are the hardest ones. Destroy is throwing the hook like the left or the right. You don't realize how much my feet suck. No it's not a natural thing features stand there. I throw punches. It's very difficult. Gentlemen you help me with this. I love that he's trading. I love that. He's training and I agree with Mr T. with that right hands. The quickest way to end of it and the and the situation but my little Jimmy Burnham afraid is not gonna be able to crack an egg. He should do some Su one hundred percent. You definitely should be. You should be learning at all you work you stand do some do Jitsu and not only that you'll become a better person from it because it's Like I said it's a very humbling experience. It helps you overcome uncomfortable situations if you will end your nine. Just physically but mentally emotionally dude. It's it's you know I've been punched and kicked my entire life but when it comes on the on the ground it's so it's just a different filmon it is. It's a different when you're uncomfortable when you're laying when you're in a casket and that's essentially what is like whenever somebody's melted chest in your face big hairy chest in your face are bits all up in your nostrils when you're when you're trying to breathe through somebody's G. because it's all sopping wet and dripping drenched over your face. I want to train. I listen listen..

And look at it cited Sir and and it's a mouthpiece mouth please Sir we gotta go back and watch what we gotta do. We gotta go back when we got to watch. 'cause IT WAS HOURS. I don't remember I see it. It was to do was to give me a strike. That guy in the barracks that was being a pussy metal jacket if he wants to keep that guy but I was not listen. I wish it was because back. Then you can pull hair. And he had his hands wrapped up star gave he's hitting them came on top. Not Yes the top not and hoist Gracie used that top. Not keep him held down life. Yes and he pulled out now yet. I would agree to disagree to. We're going to revisit. This is it this go back. I want all of the UFC unfiltered army to go on. Ufc fight pass. Look up this fight. Let's see what's going on here so I think I think they should. They should put To go back and really see what's going on tonight. We have to to the Bockel. No gentlemen I don't know if you see what I'm wearing. I'm wearing my leotard. We have like Curbside coffee we got going on here. Upstate karate so but they WANNA up. I don't know if you saw the little thing that I did the other day. Jimmy Oh my God it. Well that's what happens when you're cooped up all day you come up with weird ideas. We're things to do you know what I'm saying. They did a dance routine him in a couple of his buddies explain explain it because Jimi yeah remember the all the back in the eighties. They had like the Aerobics Olympics. Right remember would go out there like dance. This music and it was like was really dancing. They were doing aerobics. Okay basically dancing. Yeah go back and watch it. And I'm pretty sure Kim pill You ever watch comedy. Central did a thing on the Aerobic Olympics. But I so. We decided to do like Everybody's doing these workout challenges. So we decided to dress up in our leotards headbands and got shorts on Scott. I cannot. I'm dramatic but that's a different generation. Try Not even not even stay away from me. A little challenge aerobic challenge but now that we're doing curbside coffee. Jim guys made this dress up in our leotards to deliver the coffee ain't nobody made interest out. He likes burn. No don't listen to see your kid. You usually give us an excuse to where he actually. This is a career. High quality was an excuse to where leotards understand. I look for excuses. Took what is curbside? Coffee exactly yes. So at our we just moved in from a from eleven thousand square facility to a twenty thousand square foot facility. We saw we built our own facility and we have a coffee bar smoothie bar here at at the genome so to school at the school. I I like that. I like that Mr. Take because I do the same thing. People go with our gym's. Open I what do I own a POW out? Gold's gym was it. Bent You tomorrow marks. What school is they. Give me some of that but I'm wondering how are you giving coffee away or you're selling coffee on the corner. Hundred Kabore selling we can't to Which is probably one of the reasons why I'm in the Leotard to make some. You know to make some cash hard times. You know what I'm saying. I have schools also in my life. I've been doing it out of C- Career I put back into my schools. And that's like the rest of my life and all of a sudden you know this thing comes about. This IS CORONA VIRUS. Totally out of left field. And what I do is like what you do. Is the opposite of social social distancing. So whether you're struggling on fulfill prouty exactly so I'm just right now. I'm in limbo much like I would have thought fucking smoothies on the side of the road as well. We're doing like online classes in and it was as difficult special. Jujitsu because you need a partner right. I mean it's it is very. We're doing online classes for kids. Things like that sword. I used to go on facebook. Live so pretty much everybody can go on and check it out but You know just to keep the kids busy because there are a whole mocked up you know. They're running rampant. Parents are pulling their hair out or one choke them out so we're trying to keep them doing something. We're at the gym all day every day. Just like we normally would but we're actually working more. I think than we did when classes going on just scrambling with you know. Making sure computers arrived making sure. Come up with class times trying to put our heads together to figure out what kind of. Crotty less than we can do online. Because you don't you don't need really a party to do karate. Jujitsu different animal. You GotTa have a party you gotta have somebody or dumb. You're grappling dummy or something. So have you done any training with anybody else me. No we've been doing this guy about it but I have. I have a few adults in my. I teach the adults so I deep CNA. I teach the adults criminal karate by habit. Few that'll come in. I mean they're adults right so they can kind of make that decision. Sure and you know. My belts are responsible. So they're not feeling well. They'll stay home if they're feeling good they're going to come in. But we still keep us social distance where we're separated. We have huge amount. We can separate them have have their their own thing so they're still getting workouts in but with when it comes to the kids we've got like armies. We have an army of kiss so it'll be impossible. Yeah right no way keep them apart mean eventually eventually things are going to get back to normal but like right now. We're in the eye of it right now. So it's such a strange time because it's really I know people plug point that well you know the swine flu and this and that it just. It never felt like this. I never drove well. Long Island and I'm like everything is shutdown on on a Wednesday at five o'clock. I'm like what is going on here. I'm just been loading on the vitamin C taking a baby and hopefully saying loading up on the sink. Men Man to the zinc. We should loanable zinc. But I'm we're keeping our distance as best we can see. I've been running around having completely unprotected sex because if I'M GONNA get it. It's not going to be from an elevator or doorknob. I'm going to enjoy only made. Do you see you see these stubble. Social media people like walk into a grocery stores in licking the Kansas. I don't know if you saw that. Did you see that? I can get interested to his guy who the bunch of deodorants and Walmart. He got arrested. And they're gonNA THEY'RE GONNA get charged with all the police investigations into the. It's almost a terrorist threat. What an idiot like you should be. Beat up yeah and then you take him and beat him getting like some sort of a wet stick and just welcome. I think that could be like a like a like a capital punishment. You know you get in trouble. Three strikes you put them in the gone with somebody you know like that. Zehr something. Yeah just beat the crap out. Of course there's a guy in an Adelie or something. He spitted somebody. And one of the workers came and clock them on karate chop them on the side of the head. Now for spitting at someone else. It's like you're going to behave like that in public. You know they get. That's that's like. Yeah that's that's like throwing a punch for sure yeah. I don't know what you got what you spend on me four on an punch you in the face to with without a corona virus. Somebody spits on me talking council members video. The Guy was the guy was raising. Cain in a restaurant next thing you know you got nazi-era like superheroes goes in and takes his Gal Malcolm. That was always there it hurting. That's that was. That's true more right. You guys did the same thing except for Jimmy no agenda. I would've said Matt. Where are you love that? So what have you so? You've been kind of just kind of doing this at school. Getting school ready. You don't have anything lined up to you. You don't anything. Nothing I have. My last November ended up breaking both my hands in the fight in the second round with yes in the second round man. I don't know if you saw. I was on a Hawaiian My hands I looked like had professor KLUMP hands. They were swollen. Broke both my hands in the second round. I go back to the second round. And I'm like after the second Dad My hands broken. He's like well hit him with him anyway so I went out there. It was it was funny because everybody after the files you had her. Why could you finish them? I was like dude I was trying third round. It was like I was trying to hit him hard as I could. But my body wouldn't let me so hard as I wanted to. You know because they knew they were engine matinee. Whenever you're you're injured you're going so normally you don't fill anything but if you do feel something you know you're pretty injured out there. You know your hands. How would you bring them in the same round on this? Do you see him. He's got a lot of respect and he's got a Mellon on him though he's got a massive skull and going back and watch a lot of his fights? He takes some punishment but he keeps on Comet Swan knew that he was going to be very difficult to put away and not only that he's going to be right there in my face so I knew there could be potential that I may end up injuring myself out there because how tough this guy is so I was prepared for it and if I wasn't with most people you know you got a guy that you give them you know. Give them hell. You hit him as hard as you can. In a fight he just come right back at you that can be demoralizing saying like what the heck so. I knew what I was getting myself into when it came to him and literally the next to get next day along with myself like he was unrecognizable. I mean he was. It was almost like a j. Check him and he had his face was which but he healed up. Quick had a fight lined up but I think they canceled it. When you broke your case you want matter. Which hand did you break first? And how far apart was it like you break your hand or I still have one hand left and then do you realize the second you break the next hand and how far apart was it was back. It was like right. It was back to back. I ended up not going down with my left hand and not fracture there and while he was on the ground I had control of his feet so I pushed his feet out of the way and I came down with a right hand but are rolled my hand over too much to him and I just hit him with my my My index finger knuckle and that just cracked just broke and we did on my youtube channel. We did a hand conditioning Video which I was very slack on This past fight so it I gotta get back on my hand condition and not a whole lot of inmate fighters Doohan conditioning. You do it this guy does. I'm he's got free can do that. We we have a wooden post is called a mock aware Amaki and it's got a piece of leather wrapped around. It's got a tire attached to it down the bottom for conditioning. The skin of your shins. It conditions. Your hands your knuckles and it's kind of an old school. Karate thing is developed helped harden up gets make the bones in the hands informed more dense so that when you happen to hit somebody in their melon. You stand less of a chance. Enough guaranteed less of a chance. You breaking breaking your bones and your there's.

Netflix's 'Love Is Blind' brings the reality dating show into 2020

"Netflix plan to take over television has extended to dating shows for a while. But perhaps they've never made one so weird so baffling at so cringe. Inducing Lee embarrassing for everyone involved as love is blind and you probably know someone who's watching it then what the show insists on calling an experiment. Couple sit in separate cells that they call pods where they can hear each other but not see each other and once they've had a conversation or two if they're getting along they get engaged and only then do they meet will any of them. Make it to the altar. I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes. We're talking about the NETFLIX series. Love is blind on this episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR joining me and Steven from NPR. West is one of our most treasured friends. Who the record should show. We did not force to watch. Love is blind Sam Sanders the host of. It's been a minute. Hello Sam I would. A page ought to be on this show. We should also point out that Y'All can't see me in her. We're trying to figure out whether we can possibly have a meaningful conversation county each other so before we get to deeply into it. The basic idea of this show is that you start with some men and some women they all sit and if you think of them as little tiny prison cells with furniture and painted walls they are separated by a wall that they can't see through but they can hear through so it's basically like having a conversation with someone in two adjoining phone booths. And so they talk to each other and then if they like each other enough to get engaged without ever having met or spoken to a non television based situation they move out of those pods and they go on vacation and live together and see if they really really want to get married they all have to have a wedding and go up to the altar. And then when you're up there you have to decide. Are you going to say yes? Are you going to say now? Dump you forever Steven. You're a viewer of trashy television. Way Back leaving. Some fairly trashy dating shows enough that I can peg this show as a combination of the bachelor married by America and Mr Personality hosted by Monica Lewinsky. Boy Cut. What did you think of this one? You know the first episodes I struggled a little bit. I found it very stressful. It's got some of that kind of falsely generated conflict. It's a dating show. I've kind of weaned myself off of the Bachelor Bachelorette for kind of ethical reasons as much as anything and getting back into a dating show. Took me a couple episodes. At which point I could not stop watching it. The instruction going in with Stephen. I know you're very busy right now. Even just watch three or four. I've watched all ten and burned through them. Basically in one sitting one of the things that makes this show. So Benjamin is that it's on Netflix. So there are among other things no commercials and no reason to break into the show and say begun. And then I'll come up the senior about to see and then you come out of commercials. Here's a recap of what you saw. Before the commercial break with the bachelor going back but he's Ryerson on streaming services edited versions of the Bachelor and the Bachelorette where they cut that crap out and then each episode will be like twenty six minutes long. So this doesn't have that but it's centered on this ludicrous false choice between getting married or never seeing each other again. Which is down like they're not allowed to subvert the show in any way they're not allowed to say like f you were dating. There's sort of forced to do one or the other and they. They all seem to buy into this experiment in a way. That is very silly but at the same time it is a weirdly intoxicating show that I ultimately enormously enjoyed even though it's very very stupid. Yeah I basically agree with that. Take Sam a hit me. What did you think? Oh Man so. There are two big reasons. I love this show one for what it says about net flix and to for what it says about what we normally do. And don't say about love one. This really shows that like in spite of trying to be the place for Prestige Film. Net flicks is actually really good at reality. Tv You'll recall. Cheer you'll recall tied in with Marie Condo more queer eye or nailed it or next and fashion or the glass blow reality show followed by the circle and now this. They're making really good addictive reality. Tv and that's for several reasons. You know some of Stephen pointed out. They don't have to commercial breaks thing. Let these stories flow and organic and then in many ways they are not overproducing this stuff when I compare What's going on with. Love is blind to like the bachelor. There seems to be less direct manipulation by the producers. They'll be plotlines in the bachelor of where the had the couple go to a country music concert but wait turns out the country. Music singer is one of their excess craziness. Ensues you see the last of that with the blind makes it feel more earnest. Even though still fake I know I know right at the very least. They're better at hiding it. It doesn't feel conspicuous. Whatever manipulation there is and you know they're certainly is like we're all going to happen to meet up with my parents and I. It does become kind of something that you know is is staged in some of the same ways but I do agree that they're better at making it feel like something that could happen in a real person's life. Yeah so that's the first thing like this to me is evidence that whether they like it or not. Netflix is now better at reality. Tv then movies and with that the second thing it says to me is the things we do or do not talk about publicly when it comes to courtship. I think this show is really brave and having these people who are strangers very early on in their quote unquote relationships talk about race. Talk about physical appearance. Talk about money. One of the couples has to deal with the fact that one is black and one white. And they discuss it. The entire time very openly and candidly and responsibly. Another couple Barnett. And what's her name? Maria she's flat broke in one episode. She says to him my credits crap. I don't always have a job a few months ago. I was Outta my car. What you think about that. You would never see that on the bachelor you would. And most couples don't talk about that until it's too late so to see. That disgust candidly on this show. I find it kind of refreshing. Well it's one of those things where it's both early and too late because on the one hand only known each other for a couple of weeks but on the other hand there are already engaged so I agree that there's that funny. There's this funny conversation between a SAM mentioned Barnett. And amber where? It's not just that she's saying like I'm broke or whatever and he asks her. How many days a week she works and she says as many as I feel like she says I work to live. I don't live to work. Which is one of those things red flag that could be as you said. There's such a fine line between my queen and I know the same way about folks to say that as folks who say. I don't do drama. It's like Oh no. You don't drama. Well right actually do drama. You sort of have to theoretically talk about those things but you have none of the history that might make talking about those things in some ways both easier and harder. But you have to do it anyway. The part that I found most jarring to tell you the truth was like the very first time someone in this show says I love you. I almost crawled out of my skin of so weird so weird. The other thing I think is amazing about it is the people keep saying this is crazy and I keep wanting to say yes. It is run. Are we nuts? Yes in like that is what makes me. What's become the saddest story line in this show? And this is the story of Mark in Jessica. They have a great emotional connection. But Jessica doesn't think that mark is physically her type. He's not tall enough not Nordic enough not blonde enough not white enough and that becomes clear very early on and she never just says that he's also ten years younger than she is and exactly former relationship. Where if it were a family pet you would phen. Is it out of mercy? Twenty hours before this show.

'The Goldfinch' paints dull picture from prize-winning book

"Donna tarts 2013 book the Goldfinch won a Pulitzer Prize for its story of a boy whose mother dies in bombing. It is an epic tale of grief life abandonment friendship drugs and stolen painting of a Goldfinch now the Goldfinch has been adapted into a movie starring Ansel elgort Oaks vaguely Nicole Kidman Luke Wilson Jeffrey Right in Wolf Hart and Sarah Paulson. I'm Stephen Thompson this week on pop culture happy hour from NPR. You're talking the Gold Bitch of the movie movie and the book that spawned in here with me in the studio is very hardiman. Who was the books editor for Weekend Edition. Hello Bury. It is a pleasure to have you here. Also with us is writer Katie Presley Wrestling Hello Katy Hi there and also joining us writer Chris Clinic Hello Chris. I've seen Goldfinger a hundred times. I'm so excited to talk about so I'm not going to start with you and give you a couple of minutes to regroup start with Berry. You've read the book have and you've seen the movie. Would you think think well I will say that this movie suffers from something that I think often happens when you try to maybe be just slightly to faithful full to a in terms of literary adaptation the book which is a doorstop of a book and has so many places and plot points. If you reduce it down to its plot points it becomes a very and then this and then this and then this and then this and the movie to me felt very plop. PLOP PLOP PLOP plot plot. Here's a lovely actor plop. PLOP PLOP PLOP plot and in their ways in which you know as you read the list of actors in it and I heard Ansel elgort oaks vaguely. I thought well that sounds like a more interesting movie because it didn't it sort of lost some of its Dickensian deal of the book because it seems to me. Maybe you had a director who was so who wanted to be. He's just so faithful to the book that he he neglected to tell the real story of the book which I think you can do and lose truly like maybe half off of the plot. which in some ways is maybe how I felt about the book? I think Donna Tart is marvelous. I am a huge secret for history fan and this is a hard one to do. You're telling this story that spans a number of years and and that involves a lot of characters being played by multiple actors unless you are Nicole Kidman your role is is split between only do a roll if she can play a forty year span in a in a characters life exactly so so this is a sprawling story so to summarize a little bit of that plot boy named Theo he he is at a museum with his mom. The museum bombed his mother dies and feel winds up taking a painting from the museum and that painting has an impact on his life as the the movie follows him through his childhood and his young adulthood so there there is a lot there's a lot of character development to pack into this story and it sort of follows the the fate of this kid and of this painting Katie. Would you think a dark secret about me as a reader is I really am not generous wis.. It's morally questionable characters so I think in order like you're supposed to be in order to be an intelligent reader your supposed to appreciate morally A. and big. US or even morally repugnant characters because they're interesting. I can't stand them. I'm a nice person right like do do it in the streets apparently able in the sheets of a book. Yes the book. Write it on a bathroom. Okay life so what made the book interesting to me was that the central question of the book is a question of moral ambiguity like a boy away who is very recently concussed has just been in a has just been the victim of a terrorist attack plucks painting out of a museum because he thinks he's supposed post to because a dying man has told him to and then as he gets older he realizes what he's done and it becomes a dark web kind of closing in in on him what he's done and the sorts of people who want in on what he's done somehow the movie didn't capture that complexity to the character of Theo. I'm very judgy of unlikeable. Characters is the pithy way of saying it that is a fundamental part of who theo is is that the way that he processes the trauma of losing his mother and being in that explosion is by getting into some really shady stuff and I think the the elgort performance manages to lose that but also doesn't gain any charisma so felt like a very flat performance to me and not performance is central to you have to care about him if you're going to care about this story. He's the one that makes you believe that. The painting is magical. He's the one that makes you believe that the object of his affection is Helen of Troy like worth all affection and that his caretaker is as benevolent as he is. There's so much magic that the book has time came to expand upon through. Theo's is the movie didn't give you so. I came out feeling Gosh. That was awfully pretty gosh. I'm glad I read that Gorgeous Book Doc. Gosh why I'm hungry. It was long. That was the last thing hunger what you came out all right. How about you Chris Yeah. I didn't quite finish the novel before I saw the movie because it is a few pages shy of eight hundred pages so it is about three times the length of a typical novel so even a two and a half hour movie movie is a very hurried very condensed adaptation of this. I think I agree with with Katie's macro critique of how the you know. The movie tells the story and loses nearly all the subtext I sort I thought I would enjoy that more because Theo is the narrator of the novel and we get a little bit of voice over from him in the film but not very much not in his his head you know living with his perceptions the way you are for every word of this again eight hundred page book. I think this movie needed a director with a more a deft hand at combining time period. This is a you know a film and novel that jumps back and forth between our Neri narrators thirteen and when he's I dunno twenty eight or thirty or something Christopher Nolan is a director who does this this really well. Sorry I know always the person defending the Chris Nolan movie in this in this corner but he might have found a way to make it even longer that's not fair. That's got dunkirk but yeah but that thing that this film attempts were were were making the something that is chronologically prior to most of what we've seen gene feel like the emotional climax of the film that is the kind of card trick that he can pull off in this director John Crouch John Crowley who made Brooklyn which I which I like very much. That's a much much much simpler story. It's linear. I don't mean to diminish her or Sarandon's performance but I mean she's not morally conflicted in the way that that answer low Gorz that that Theo is in in this movie. I think that's a great a great adaptation this just I yeah it feels hammy plotting kind of workmanlike. I think it diminishes the book doc somewhat of the same reaction one thing that I kept thinking throughout this movie was why is this a movie and not and I don't mean like why is this a movie like why does is this exist. I'm not sitting there with my arms folded but I'm thinking why isn't this and this is this is gonNA sound counterintuitive. Why isn't this an eight hour series. Why isn't this I mean. This is Amazon Studios. They could have made this as a as a long form TV project and given the filmmakers time to dry out these characters a little a bit better. This is an epic story. This is seven hundred seventy three page book. This is a two and a half hour movie and the movie somehow feels both rushed and slow oh and that's a really tough combination because they're racing through all these plot machinations and I just kept sitting there and it felt longer than two and a half hours. I just kept sitting there thinking. I don't feel like I'm getting to know these characters. I can tell we're a long way from the ending and yet at the same time at weirdly weirdly doesn't feel like anything's happening even though they're so much plot I found the experience of watching the movie to be really frustrating as much as it. It is beautifully shot. I think there are some lovely performances and then I think it's very nicely cast think oaks vaguely as young was a non he was. Aso Oh he was also in Pete's Dragon. Which is I know I've heard the name oaks vaguely before I think he's terrific. I think fin wolf hard as the OS Ukrainian best friend and that he meets when he has been transported to the horrors of the outskirts of Las Vegas. He meets this. He meets this kid. Boris played by and Woolford who has really thick accent and I'm so used to seeing fin wolf heart in the movies or in stranger things but I thought that was a strangely lovely performance really affecting performance. I liked the child actors in this a little bit more than some of the grownup performances. There are all these little components of it that I like. It's shot by Roger Deacons. WHO's an amazing cinematographer awesome. I was kind of a standard with his credit came up at the end because this is not a movie that I mean it's mostly indoors it. You know it doesn't have the kind of big visas of movies like bladerunner when she finally went his Oscar for or you know sicario or the Coen brothers movies he's made but yeah I I was surprised because it just felt like TV for me and not you know not prestige. TV necessarily kind of well. I think wow I mean I do but I do think that's part of it as it did feel like it had the tone of like a like a big little lies tight type story and partly because it enter Cole Kidman but like it felt like it should be on TV. I think that's right because the book itself self is also incredibly episodic. You have and she does this. I mean this is a very secret history a little friend kind of thing to do where she is interested in the interplay of these different worlds of being in the busy the teaming space of New York and the upper east side and then being in this wasteland of Las Vegas and then being the places you go and her books and the way that like class and police and person rub up against each other is is very important and again every idea in this movie feels very unfinished. He obviously understood that thing about class that she's talking about. He understood the thing about you know first impression and art and an in how trauma plays but everything only gets a glancing blow and had it banned you know here is the episode with Boris in Amsterdam. Here is the episode bestowed with Boris and unless Vegas. I think you would have gotten a little more of that and you know what would have been really nice as you know because the book doesn't really have a doesn't land the plane really you're really just sort of circling over a philosophy rather than a a plot ending you would have given the viewer more time to develop it on their own so I I walked out feeling sort of confused and I didn't have that feeling of you know even though I did feel the book's ending is finished I i. I still felt that I'd had an experience of all these things. There was a lot to talk about. There was a lot to think about. I did not feel this here except there was a lot to love in the apartment. I do want to shoutout Oh. My God will be but also hoagies apartment beautiful. I liked all the apartments actually the glimpses you got of the Os the apartment art that deals with his mother and the barber's so the Barbara's are the wealthy family that I take. Theo in immediately after the explosion and e barber is he's a friend of the owes a classmate they were closer as young boys than they are now but they take him in and misses Barbara's played by Nicole Kidman. Who who I gotta say has never I'm not in a coal kidman person and so I think one of the places that this movie faltered for me is it she was like a black hole and the camera just rested on her face gazing at Theo thoughtfully and I was like this is wasted time is not an idea exactly and like that so much of how she actually acts through her cheek bones those are the antenna you know you're watching them for curry action and just like the little movements at the corner of her mouth and I don't Act Shoe Willie find that very interesting. I'm cheekbone person. I like a good cheek bone but it felt felt contractual. It felt like Ms Kidman requires no fewer than fifteen minutes of close up on cheek and the character both in I will say this. This is true in the book and the Movie Opens Up Santa Clara yes in her older age. She her family encounters major tragedy that that compounds the sympathy see that she was already forming for Theo but when we're talking about these weird drops into melodrama added melodrama that was not necessary because the story sorry could be dramatic if you let it breathe a little bit more so like too much time on Kidman. She did not work for me. I did actually like her at her oldest eight in the movie. I saw all of her performances written on top of each other. I saw in your wife like a close match of the way that Hart describes the character but you don't have to do it. Exactly the way tart describes the character you can cast someone else you go a different direction. You know you can still you. An adaptation is not a straight st translation right. I do want to say one thing because if people do not want to see this movie which I would certainly understand after this conversation I will say the book itself is one if those wonderfully meandering tales that actually benefits from the time you spend reading it you know you dip into it for a new episode and the writing eating is absolutely incandescent the descriptions of the furniture the look at Las Vegas the even the descriptions of some of the emotions like the tears ears that fall out of his face that are unconnected to I mean they're they're all of these moments in the book that really stick with you and I will say I do think it is absolutely worth whatever time time you put in to this book too so I agree. I just you

You know, we came on to evening or Saturday night. And we have Nate Diaz returning his Patas. Dots tall Connor was gonna fight. And once I saw it out. I was at no Connors not gonna fight anyone here. He's going to Leander the year. If we even do see him back. So I do think it's going to be second. Sorry last quarter of the year for Connor's return. And it's just weird how it's gonna play because we've had so much fac and mass Nurena this division. We're finally seeing fights know that we wanna see that. We've craved to see.

I want the ball from Jordan Gilliam. Does it get it? Ethan comes around his screen by Dykstra. But didn't get there in time. And the shot is good goaltending on Stephen Thompson junior. Ethan Thompson going behind a screen, but never did recover. And the basket counts for Jordan Gilliam and the highlanders with three straight possessions in buckets after going over four minutes without scoring fifty one forty one beavers approach the midway point of the second and have Ethan Thompson to trace tinkle out high. Walker step by trace goes at the trouble and lost the ball stolen, by Gilliam, two on one with picket Gilliam to the basket had it knocked away and off the hand of Ethan Thompson and out of bounds. Ten one to play in the game drag on L Cavs checks in for the high. Islanders as does Callum MacRae. Eric row wire comes out along with big meadow, Dykstra, the beavers leading by ten Dykstra actually stays in. And it's to Cambay Martin.
