This is what you call a 12th preview show.
Just wanted to make sure that everything was good to go.
It looks like it is.
We're gonna start in now.
Three from the fight, Capital of the world.
Inside our beautiful home, Not the Mandalay Bay Sports book.
A junkie radio video podcast.
I'm gorgeous, George, the host goes, Is my co host the devious and das****ly goes that Joy's here about.
And here we are at home, unable to do are normal.
So from the Mandalay Bay Sports book, or many of you have been, uh, in the past for the past 11 years, however, we're still going to deliver a quality show for you.
Even though there's no fights going on goes, there's still a lot to talk about.
There's still time.
I mean, really, when you think about it, the last, uh, 48 hours are actually last five days have been pretty intense with stories that have been coming out.
So we got tons to talk about.
Yeah, now that said, here's a few things.
A lot of what you're going to hear, I believe, is this you gain that the fighters air playing where they can use their social media to get people excited about possible matchup.
We're about them wanting to fight or fill in this hole.
You see, 2 49 er, timeline is just filled with that.
I mean, I take a few of the fighters serious that they're ready to compete.
But a lot of the rumors that we're gonna talk about are, I think, are just that.
It's just verbal sparring on social media may be, you know, fighters tryingto curry favor with the fans and cozy up to the fans a little bit.
I'm willing to go in.
There were less than three weeks away at this point, folks, and as of right now, there is no a official event that's taking place.
There hasn't been an official cancellation.
We know one of the headliners have Bean armada made off.
Who supposed to face Tony Ferguson? He's stuck in Russia pretty much because of this Kobe 19 the travel restrictions that Russia has imposed in the last.
What was it like two days ago? 48 72 hours ago, when they said that was there believe Monday's when President Putin said.
And so with him stuck in Russia, that kind of cancels what was one of the rumored sites out there, which was Abu Dhabi because he just flat out can leave Russia.
I mean, unless there's really a Dana White to Donald Trump Vladimir Putin connect connection, which isn't the craziest thing ever, it's not.
Apparently, they're saying on Lee diplomats, only government officials can go in and out of the country.
So it's pretty strict to me.
It sounds like a beef is out.
But really, when you think about it like you just stayed it five year Putin, If anything, is a huge MM eight there and beating on Morocco Meta, uh, he's very, very, very popular in the States.
You can imagine what he's popular like back home.
So if they were ever to make something happen, I think that's a guy that could price say well, for hubby will let him leave.
So who knows what kind of talks were going on behind the scenes? But I'm more the opinion that that matchup won't happen, but right, So the fight was supposed to go down, you know, here in the next few weeks, third week in April in Brooklyn, New York And obviously you've seen the way the government has reacted to the Corona virus pandemic and basically what it boils down to, it's it's just not safe.
I mean, people are out there, they're sick.
But but really, what it boiled down to was gathering large gatherings.
They started coming down from, you know, 500 to 2 52 52 10 to wherever they're at, check your local listings.
But there was not gonna be a fight in Barclays, which is in Brooklyn.
And so the rumors started saying, Well, could they go to Florida? We've heard anything from Florida.
We coordinated into international waters on a cruise ship we heard out of the country spots like Abu Dhabi believes South after that was actually odds on this folks of the different spots that it could happen.
They even left, uh, Nevada in there at one point because Nevada on March 25th.
So about a week ago, they were supposed to have a hearing an emergency hearing and they were gonna talk about the future of combat sports, and they couldn't think that what happened, so a lot of the spots have been eliminated.
Uh, as of right now, I believe that you A is also come up with the same type of travel restrictions.
I don't think anyone can fly in and out of that.
I think Abu Dhabi is out of the running, too.
It's, uh, it's really odd when you think about it, because no matter what the plan is, whether it's Dana, why or God himself, it just seems like nothing is cemented until the day up, because everything's been changing day today, so it's got to be a nightmare for him.
If he does pull it off, that's amazing.
Yeah, for him to be able to do something like that in this time period, I think it's pretty crazy.
I don't know if I sign off on it completely.
Bob Arum is a good story on MM, a junkie today, he was talking about why the spy price shouldn't happen.
You know why he's putting everything on the back burner, so data is definitely begin.
Been getting a lot of low back this far is trying to put it together, but think once it's setting down once he does it.
I mean, we're all going to tune in, right? We sure are.
And he promises that if they if you can pull this off, it'll be a stack card, so you'll see some of the names that have been thrown out there.
And I guess I'll start that process when hubby birdie much kind of hold himself out, I guess, even revealed that the promotion might even be looking for opponents.
So, of course, our minds started wandering.
Well, who could he be talking about? Let's shoot for the top.
Tony Ferguson is not just gonna fight a tomato can and just engages anything that popped up.
In fact, on MM, a junkie.
There's already odds that proclaimed Ferguson is a slave favorite over Justin Gage.
It's just there's no substantiated report, uh, as well, when I click refresh on my enemy junkie app that just engage is involved in any sort of talks.
Who knows? Odds are out there.
I guess maybe maybe you think the odds makers are looking for stuff to do as well.
Dustin Poi, though publicly did say he would step in and fight Tony Ferguson.
What we want is a fight.
They're fine. I'll take that.
But what would be the stakes? I don't think they would strip a B, but we didn't do anything wrong.
You know what I mean? So what we're gonna fight for just to give us a fight? Those guys, they're complicated.
Cool. Not eating on that.
But what does it do to the division? Not much other than I guess it.
Now, what is he promised to shot against the beam again? He just had one in September.
Does that open doors for Connor and Abby? Is that open the door for gauging, unhappy or fill in the blank? Whatever can happen.
And, of course, if Tony wins, he just keeps a spot as the number one guy.
The guy just can't get a shot at the undisputed title for many reasons.
So as that's happening, let's put those lightweights to the side Will react to that first.
He just Did you like any of those matchups? Yeah.
Really like Oh, so why don't get me wrong? I would love that, but don't you want it for some sort of sticks? no, because it doesn't really make sense to do it for anything right now.
The only reason we're doing it is just basically for money, for the company to have some kind of revenue.
But really, as far as like if they were happy, even Tony, it makes sense because there's a big cloud layer of that up.
But that's not looking like it's not gonna happen.
So now you add an extra guy.
Let's just say it's just an G.
I mean, he's a guy that a lot of people felt like I needed a shot as well.
So I mean, I guess it does kind of clear things up there.
If the winds and then it's clear, you know, we don't have to sit through having to wait for another hubby than Tony matchup, go through all the genes, jokes and everything that we got right.
For the last three or four years, they've been trying to put this thing together, so that kind of clears up, but really not a whole lot clears up.
It's not the actual two guys in there doing battle, so really, it just comes down to money.
It just comes down to doing something that can sustain the UFC and keep the sport out there.
But, uh, I don't know.
That whole lot gets all.
If the youth seems of the mindset that they're gonna make you see 2 49 half in one way or another, then they must be of the mind set that one way or another, their business is going to get back to usual, maybe even sooner than the rest of the world.
So let's just say Tony does Fire one of the two in the history of mixed martial arts has been plenty of time for somebody wins, wins, convincingly wins early in the first round and still suffers a broken knuckle or something.
Where now we gotta wait for them to be ready because we're going away for hubby to be ready.
A B as of the fourth week of April starts his observance of Ramadan, a Muslim holiday that he observes very strictly, and it's about a month long holiday for him, so he won't even be available till June.
And remember, this is something, uh, servants.
Where from sunup till sundown.
There's no consumption of food or water. I'm not mistaken.
So you can't possibly be training.
He's a phenomenal athlete, but you would need a little bit of recovery time from that period and probably fight sometime in honest so that things went well.
And Tony, or whoever wins whoever is next round of beef is ready to go in August.
September, I suppose.
Okay, again, that's what what's happening right now is not abuse fault that he's trapped in Russia.
Hobby was in the United States.
They said, Sorry, we gotta shut businesses down.
There is no groups of 10 are whatever the local government was telling the Northern California.
So he went to Russia because he heard that the final yet maybe overseas.
In fact, he was pulling back the curtain a little bit and saying the 99.
99% sure it was gonna be in Abu Dhabi.
And so he was started to head that way.
But then, when the U.
The United Arab Emirates where Abu Dhabi is located, stated that there would be travel restrictions in which somebody couldn't leave that country, he panicked for saying that Well, then I got to go back to Russia because We're not getting anything caught concrete, you know what I mean? And I can't blow.
So again we're back to If we have this fight, does it disrupt the possibility of having Tony and I'll be back as soon as possible? Yeah, that's on.
That's the risk.
You are willing to take it for just this one fight, you know, And here's and let that simmer for a second, because here's where the other rooms come in.
So then Jorge Mas Little says, I'll step in and I'm thinking, What? You're a welterweight.
1 70 Ferguson's a lightly 1 55 but their statues aren't that far apart.
Or a model's an undersized welterweight or a being lightweight.
Tony Ferguson is just a big lightly, but he hasn't had the troubles off making way, you know.
Oh, or anything like that for Hari, it's it's really, really talk.
Plus, look at what he's doing at +17 He's already got a guaranty title shot versus tomorrow's MMA, but he did say he'll save the card and then I started thinking with Tony final.
Now that would just be two superstars, one at it.
I mean, look well, I don't have to be a meth comes into play or something, because I remember when the ideas that he ain't no West Coast gangster.
So the west coast of these coast collided, right? I am a title.
Ma's little one.
Tony could say, Will you find a West Coast gangster? But you didn't find a so calorie Find no collar.
That's just me thinking.
That's how I would write the script.
You know, we put the belt on the line and you put that being met belt on the line, and all of a sudden it's like, Well, it's a whole other animal.
Yeah, Paper views could be sold.
Everyone feels good for a night.
Everybody continues, but tomorrow's one stepped in and said, I'll find Jorge Mas at all, which meant now we don't have to have Tony Ferguson involved.
We preserve Tony Ferguson.
Put a little side, put him up, put him down, say stay healthy will see you in three months or so be it.
When the pandemics over.
When Ramadan's over, you two are gonna fight.
There's no no way we're avoiding this.
This was an act of God or whatever, and we start focusing on a new main event.
Tomorrow's my heart.
They both said we could do it within that time, but then they both didn't.
Maybe you're going to go another route.
Well, they're still Covington and Woodley.
They started saying, We'll do it So think about all the names of just on all the possibilities, you know, and gone in.
That guy's about the tear off Eric next six hands.
I mean, he's had Midst every single day.
He still wants to fight Jersey.
Nero's instruct their support, Supposed to fight.
On March 28 in Columbus, there were the headliners.
You could grab those two and put him somewhere on that card, along with Woody in Covington, along with Guzman in laws.
But all along with I don't know some big names if we're still gonna work on having the car.
But we don't get any information you have.
See, so we don't know if it's if they're still working on it, or if they're just throw on a fishing line out there getting everybody excited, giving everybody talking about in May.
So if there's something to talk about when in reality there really isn't, I actually thought you were still gonna go a different route.
What I thought I was gonna say is that I was gonna say, Wouldn't now be a good time to introduce 1 60? Hell, yeah.
You make those two guys fight for that belt, You introduced a new belt.
I mean, I know it sounds crazy back that that's the right word, because you've champion 1 65 for so long.
I am in the 1 65 1 75 like no other.
And now it wouldn't be the best time.
The best time would have been probably gsp when he really wanted to come back.
And now you give him the option of winning a Yeah and Connor McGregor, even because you give those big names something they want, which is the opportunity to make history and one of their boat, you give the you see what they want, which is a massive pay per view.
The are they the best 1 65 hours in the world? Who knows? But you launched the division, and I'm sure the other guys would step aside to let them do that.
And the ones that division's created.
What we're talking about, folks is, uh, the UFC basically has weight classes from 1 15 That's the lady strongly all the wayto 1 85 and it's every £10.
Excuse me? No, sir.
Well, they actually, Yeah, that the actual sort of commission ABC Official Rules of mixed martial arts call for that.
And but you see uses, although slowly.
1 15 Women's trolley 1 25 Women's flyweight and flyweight 1 35 That's women's Bantam Lee and randomly, 1 45 women's further away.
And for the week, the you see does not use 1 55 But there is 1 55 division, so in that's used in the PFL.
So we're familiar with it.
There are ladies, they're competing.
And then you see also has the 1 55 But then they go to 1 71 85 then to a farm.
For many years, we said, Just do away with 1 70 insert 65 75 let's just go every £10.
You have enough fighters to do so Well, yeah, goes If they did it her be crazy.
I think Dana could even say I didn't want to do it.
I was going to stick to my guns because of what we're going on, and that's his out.
And he doesn't have to look like somebody on the receiving end of humble pie a day.
And I thought you weren't You know what I mean? He knows that they hear that.
That would be quiet.
Like that would have been nice, man.
And who would have been your guys? Well, tell me and we'll know under other cir***stances, would you? I mean, Tony's 1 55 but he's a big guy.
Monterroso on 1 64 Then you just grab those to you that I think that looks great.
But, uh, I mean, the first guys that come the minor guys like Kevin, we like P ece.
Those guys start to filter in.
But this would be like that one over to you that would give being of that out to do it.
It seems like he's just trying to find reasons to put this together.
Uh, chili 1,000,000,000.
Our chances put all those together and throw it on ESPN with no other sports.
And it could be huge for the sport.
Not the smart, smartest health wise, but a lot of eyes.
A lot of eyes on this sport.
I mean, everybody is gonna be tuning in.
That works. Start.
We're watching old cards.
Where? What? I mean, yesterday I was watching some NBA playoffs and, uh, some old NFL games.
So you have people who are start to watch sports for sure.
Now the state of Florida apparently sanctions.
Um mm. A recently.
And that's why Florida is a key name.
You know, in this whole equation, Abu Dhabi looks like that ship has sailed.
Even Russia was a possibility.
That **** apparently had sailed Nevada for sure.
New York for sure.
There's Native American land that's been talked about what I keep hearing that if they're going to go somewhere, it's gonna be in the state of Florida.
I really like that idea.
Goes off Ferguson versus miles at all or the £165 tile.
I don't I don't have a problem.
If Dana White is hearing this when he hears this, you should be thinking, Whoa, honey is the path towards Connor and be the rematch has just opened.
I got told me out of the way he gets his title shot versus Ma's.
Little Mazda was the second biggest names in the sport right now, arguably that it seems that way, and so that pay per views nice and chill in.
They could even do dual belt to the guy.
I want someone to belts because it works. It could insist.
That must also put the BMS title on the line while the vacant 1 £65 file has been in ST Contested.
I mean, who knows how much money you got asked to do for something like Just give itto? Yeah, because I think that will pay the pay per view.
There's a lot of people that that that that are obviously hurt by this Let's get that out for sure.
But there's still a lot of people that either save for a rainy day or just have me to do it.
I mean, look, you have everybody talking about Netflix, right? We're signing up for that.
People are signing up for different streaming Service is out there, so people are but willing to let go a little bit of their money.
People are still treating themselves to take out which isn't cheap, and so you can sacrifice and eat some sandwiches for the day boom.
You got yourself your pay per view.
Can't have people at your house and you have your normal people parties, but still you have yourself a pay per view.
I think the U C could maybe even come down a little bit on the price. Just everyone.
But, uh, I mean, you you really, really got my wheels turning there with Ferguson versus Masa dough for the £165 title.
Connor and Abby were opened up for the summer.
I don't think it would be happy with it, but Beef seems to be backing off.
I think it's early stance was I'll give Connor another shot, but he's gotta win 10 straight.
And now I think he just wants him. The win one.
Actually, Habib's not out of line.
He just kicked in.
That's no what I mean.
It's a huge pay per view.
No, he's not out of line.
Say three. At least win one.
That's a true hero stands.
I don't want to say at least win one and we got gauges of the world.
Ferguson's of the world.
You know, a lot of fighters.
Charles Aloe Vera Dan Hooker.
I mean, there's a lot of fighters that air doing work and Corner just had his shot.
So I see her before that.
Hope has money, so he doesn't need the money. Fine.
Anyway, this whole u of C 2 49 deal is a big mess.
Let's put that to the side unless you have a final comics. I want talk about Jonjo.
I wanna address one little thing.
You won't believe how many text messages of answer of people thinking because it's April that we were joking that we're actually adding another so for a week.
And uh, no, it's not an April Fool's joke.
Obviously you're here, you know that.
But some people that were looking on social media are thinking it's an April Fool's joke.
There's a lot of them going around.
There's been some pretty good ones so far, but now I know April fools here Charlotte on that, actually, uh, with one of our other charters, Billy people saying he's gonna have been given up alcohol for two weeks here because of what's going on with pandemic and how could weaken your immune system a little bit and and the first thing he asked, Was that an April Fool's joke? So I completely forgot about April fools.
I remember that last night.
I was up late and I remember thinking, Can I crack one here or whatever? And then I thought, Well, I don't know if it's just a good one.
I'm not against it.
It's the silly ones.
Just they get on their nerves, you know, on our with our website, I think we just for years kind of state treat the fact that we just don't play it right.
So you won't see any stories on our Web sites that are, um, us reporting a joke news story.
We're not gonna say this fight on people hold something like that.
We might post somebody else's April Fool's joke or something like that.
But your headlines and all that or anything that we talk about where I'm gonna make people fools, uh, we're gonna get pretty straight here.
Yeah, I guess I see one question here.
Definitely agree with you on the weight classes.
You forgot the lt would have been a go at me.
Gay, He says, definitely agree with you on the late classes.
Abolish 1 70 add 1 65 So who would have a problem with that tomorrow? What I would tell tomorrow's when is you're just the last welterweight champion ever.
Pick, choose like Mr Myung choose.
Do you want to go to 75? Or do you want to go to 65? One of those gonna be yours and will acknowledge you is the first we're gonna call one of them like super welterweight.
And the other one the junior welterweight, Maybe, I don't know.
But he could boast that he's a to division champion.
He really could.
Even though we'd be £5 apart from his previously I think you could give him that honor.
And But you tell him Choose which one you want and then let they're all the dominoes fall from there.
But man goes, You blew me away with Ferguson versus model for the 1 £65 About Ferguson insists then was it will bring the b f b m echo.
I would be something else that really would be something else.
And then everything you do around it, like Rosen struck verses in gone.
Ooh, Call the verses would be which by the way those two have already backed off.
It doesn't look like they're gonna fight that by yet.
It's gonna happen one day, but I think they'll revisit Leon that workers Tyron Woodley And I think coming to this is gonna let loose a long and and miles it all play out because he's got a lot of heat.
No, they're In fact, I was thinking that people fools for Covington every day.
I don't know what is my name and whatnot. Simple.
We think about those five.
I just name Suzlon Mas.
It'll count in Woodley and Leon Edwards.
That's five of the top eight on the USA Today sports.
A junkie rankings that we put out on our website.
You school of one of the drop that, uh, one of the times at the top hit rankings and just get the appropriate drop down to see where we rank these fighters.
Remember, we rank all promotions.
One championship Bela Tor PFL in Victor, not just the UFC.
Ours are better.
There's no way around it.
All right, So going back to say that's one of the top eight welterweights.
Look at the beef that they all have with each other.
That division has a lot of promise in regards to if you're the type of matchmaker that loves to build fights off two fighters, disliking each other and wanting to settle it in the cage.
Woodley doesn't like Guzman.
I mean, he respects, um, you know, he clearly beat him, but he's feeling like I've seen some of the interviews, what he's done, and he wants to run it back. Obviously.
Well, we've defended is the title four times, so that's not just something you can brush under the rug.
He had an impressive range.
Woodley definitely doesn't like coming to, I think would be a Muslim.
What would be an Edwards aren't really driving right now.
I'll tell you why.
Because Edwards is like a one running away to coming.
Tonight was supposed to be you and I.
When all this pandemic stuff is over, it's you and me, kid.
You know what I mean? So he's got a little beef there.
Coming to Covington, obviously a thief with Woodley, for sure, with my little for sure with is one.
I don't think he's mentioned Edwards.
So there's that guy MAZ.
It'll has it with Covington.
It will lose more.
Those guys, they're really, really amping up the the smack talk.
It would be a cool and three piece of soda.
And I don't think I could happen.
That has to happen one day.
I don't think I have to go through the other ones because, uh, you can figure it out, right? I mean, I'm basically covered all the different possibilities out there, but I'm talking those five and all the other talented once there, that are in that division.
Stephen Thompson to Cindy Lou.
I mean, there's a really really talented fighters, and you see it at 1 70 If you split a couple of guys up, I still think you have enough for 65 Sunny.
But my point was just that division has a lot of heat, so they're gonna chirp at each other and try and make it sound like, Hey, I'm the man.
I'm only step up, step up on the notice.
But I think a lot of that's just, you know, the play of the fans and the media just to keep their names of all.
I can't say I blame them Honestly.
Now, if you're a serial promoter of fights that you're not going to accept, that's gonna get old, you know? So we'll give you a couple.
It just it can't be happening all the time because eventually the truth comes out.
I'm hearing both sides between the model camp in response camp that they both actually seriously considered it, didn't like what they heard.
And then they knocked out.
But it was my one so far to say goes He really, really wanted to thrive in that environment of having no fans because he wanted everyone to hear him talk, Tomas.
But all any wanted everyone to hear Mama's little squeal.
Oh, God, this guy's really talk this through.
I was, uh, pretty good trash.
You were all that.
We're going to see all those matchups way.
Anything on April.
What is 18th? That's a date for you.
See 2 49 o'clock fights in general Arges? Yeah.
What's your prediction? Are we even gonna get I think we got a card.
So Jane is gonna pull through? Yeah, People eating A week ago I said I seriously doubt this will happen.
But I think Dana went so all in on everyone in the media that I think he's just not gonna listen anyone.
He's going to do what he wants.
I think he'll figure out a way to do it because I don't think you want stuff.
So look at people you know, I'm glad we started off with, I guess, the potential, the potential fights that are out there, the fights that may happen in less than three weeks.
I thought for some reason John Jones might be the way to go, because that Waas probably the biggest need, is if you look at our topic.
So let's talk a little bit about John Jones.
He's the current UFC light heavyweight champ.
He's held that title a couple times, but that guy's has had a litany of problems for the last 10 years, and this past Thursday in his current hometown.
He's lived there for a while now, probably close to 10 years.
Albuquerque, New Mexico John Joe's uh, I guess it was the wee hours of the 26 those last Thursday.
John Jones Waas arrested for a D.
W I possession of a handgun and no proof of insurance and obviously you e I think you had an open container.
I think those were the four official charges and the fact that it's a city that is basically whatever degree of lock down that they may be in.
So it was. The streets were fairly empty.
What summoned the cops to that location worthy.
Eventually arrested John Jones Waas.
A gunshot was heard.
Now, remember, if the streets are empty and it's the wee hours, I need that tough to.
Maybe Loki were troubled.
Maybe, Right, right.
And so they went to downtown, uh, Albuquerque in front of ah, nightclub, which I don't think was a business.
But it was a club there, and they pulled up on John Jones.
Is Jeep? Yeah, they pulled up on a Jeep with the I realized it was John Jones, and immediately when they came to him, they started asking him some questions.
But right away they could tell he wasn't.
In fact, folks, he tested two times the state limit, which is point away.
Most states his point. Oh, wait.
6 Is this point away? He tested 0.
16 so he was pretty cooked up, you know what I mean? And, uh, so they handle them with care.
I think they were familiar with probably celebrity, but at the same time Ah, guy, that's inebriated.
And you never know how someone's gonna react.
When you see that there's another police officer.
I think they're taking him through the steps slowly just to make it official.
Why? From what they said, they said it was fairly obvious.
You know, the the stage of alcohol was present and that there was gonna be an arrest here, but they take him to do all this, and it's all on Enemy Junkie.
You know, we have all of our fax, the timelines, and then there's a lot of body cam footage that's there.
And so they went through a series of questions and tests and things like that and then eventually placed him under arrest.
And then you actually see a little bit of John Jones right down.
You know what I mean? An emotional breakdown.
He was very respectful to the police officers never really popped off or resisted or anything.
And then I can't.
He had a little bit of a breakdown, so that was last Thursday.
And then over the weekend, of course, you know, they had their own.
I think we're gonna, I guess, accepting that. That's what he is.
I'm not even gonna say anyone understands them our fields in and because nobody really does.
I know we're going through some tough times, our our temptations, but, you know, with John, I mean, it's it's just happened more than one time, and I think that he's not gonna get too much sympathy.
So that's fast forward.
Just give me some thoughts on just that, and then we'll get to what happened yesterday, which kind of makes things a little bit more fish.
I can't blame anyone for any of their reactions.
Everybody comes from different ways of being raised.
Hey, Joe McCarthy.
Lamb basted up move.
Big John is a former LAPD officer, so eat deals.
You know, uh, one of us could have somebody in their lives that was killed by a drunk driver, something you don't have an even stronger opinions about accepting.
So and the gun shows off the bullet and land somewhere, right? So there's a lot of things that have happened in people's lives that It's very hard for me to tell somebody you're over reacting or anything like that.
Then this morning, gate anybody on.
And then there's some people there.
And that's fine and dandy to It's just John finally came out yesterday and gave his thoughts on the whole thing.
And, you know, you read it and he says all the right thing.
At least he's going in the right direction.
But I feel like it's the boy who cried wolf, right? Like you read it any, though.
These are all the right things.
But then you remember.
But it's John Jones, and he's done this to me before.
Couple times more than we're past.
You know me once.
Shame on you, fool me twice.
Shame on me anyway, guys, it's a lot.
It's a lot to accept.
But that little breakdown at the end goes him talking about his kids, you know? And so all right, you know, you're right.
I had those feelings to, like, do you know you're pretty camera, man.
What are you doing? Like don't forget, folks.
We can't even say what if you hit somebody, He has.
He had that hit and run incident.
He also had the incident where he hit a pole.
Remember? He wrapped his Bentley around here, and I think they said there was some strippers in the back who knows? So it's not like he hasn't even done that, but now it's It's escalating, too.
I mean, the guns.
Okay, I made the mistake of driving, getting behind the wheel.
You know, when I was younger, I've done it.
I think most of us have.
I've done it, but I never thought it was my gun.
You're gonna shoot off around, really put a capper on this.
Like Like, that's just a whole other line of thinking and he really does need help.
Hey, there should have been alcohol in this house.
He said he just wanted give it out of the house.
He had been cooped up for two weeks.
He wanted to get out.
Okay, But the problems, a lot of times he asked there from alcohol, there should even be alcohol.
He just can't handle, not to mention some of the other drugs he's partaking in which I don't believe I heard that there was any of those substances at this arrest.
So we'll concentrate on just the alcohol.
But he is somebody who loves his guns and has a gun collection.
Um, I don't know if he has to carry and conceal, you know, like, I don't know, we can have his gun at any time, But there's gotta be limits to when you can be carrying when you can.
And under the cir***stances of what he wasn't right mentally, and he needed to get out after being pretty drunk and he thought is I mean, a lot of things are happening there week.
Someone could seriously get hurt.
But get this if any time there waas to getyour second, do you r or D w I depending on the state you're in, by the way, that's driving under the influence for the D u I.
But if you're trying to understand what d w I I believe that's driving, uh, while intoxicated.
Each state has different interpretations.
What I was gonna say was something I just forgot.
What was it headed with this? Oh, he caught a break goes because the one that was a hidden room, he ran from the scene hit at a friend's house for 30 hours.
By the time they came back, they couldn't prove he was drunk, right? We were assuming that he was We don't know.
Uh, they found pot.
They found rubbers, some money, whatever.
He was having fun that night.
The state of New York.
I believe that one Waas.
What do your 3rd 1? You usually go to jail.
I don't care if you have the best attorney in the world.
A lot of you go to jail for their 2nd 1 And because of what's happening with Kobe 19.
The state of New Mexico, the D A in Albuquerque, Waas.
All right, so yesterday we already got word of what's gonna happen because we started wondering what's gonna happen.
I think it is the use you're gonna strip home.
You know what? How are they going to react? And we know Dana White by now.
He usually says, Let's the That's what the chips long You know what? What he has to do with the state of New Mexico first, before we can even react.
Plus, we're in the middle of a pandemic, A pendant.
So here I have it.
These are a lot of legal terms, and I'm pretty familiar with them.
But I'd rather just read it to you because it's pretty interesting stuff in the land.
So he struck a deal by pleading guilty, in which he will avoid jail time.
This is supporting the T M Z report that everything I read, um Jones will receive 96 hours of community custody, which is essentially house arrest, one year of supervised probation.
A minimum 90 days of outpatient therapy, which will be conducted via videoconferencing.
Do the cove in 19 Pendant Pandemic and 48 hours.
Oh, uh, community service according to the D A.
Any violations that this agreement will result in jail time.
So the community service has already done a lot of that.
He's gonna go cry, speak schools and telling everybody, Hey, don't make mistakes like me.
Uh, outpatient therapy.
He doesn't even have people folk that you know, that I've done the Gamblers Anonymous or I'll call, so they just don't want to go to the meeting.
But now he actually gets to Skype in the meeting.
The house arrest is only 96 hours without four days.
Well, we're all going to get any way to arrest.
You know what I mean? But what I'm saying you caught a break is I think jail just wasn't even to be considered because apparently a Kobe 19 case have the in Albuquerque.
It's so right away, even the prison system of the jail system.
They're already trying to figure out how they're gonna adjust to that.
There's been people there, but they have the right.
So you know that I think that's what they're alluding to.
So this is a statement from the d. A.
John Jones pleaded guilty to a second d w.
The incident happened on March 26 2020 outside of downtown Albuquerque nightclub, just two months after his probation ended following an incident at an Albuquerque strip club. That's right.
There was an incident last year.
Cem, stripper accused, was a verbal assault.
That's why we at the time like that.
It sounds like we're joking, but we're not.
There are a lot of but compared to like wrapping the car around the pole on dead run like we almost don't like.
This was just all boys will be boys or whatever, but this did happen and there was a probation that ended in January, so it wasn't under that provision because when you do stuff bad stuff under probation, it exacerbates.
So they make note of that now.
Jones took responsibility for his actions early on in the case, and in doing so the state agreed to a one year supervised probation.
Normally, the state would be requesting a pre sentencing report in a recommendation to substance recovery courts.
However, due to the Cove in 19 it is not clear the program can accept anyone at this time.
It is also the reason that we're agreeing to the four days on See CP with 90 days for turning in.
The Metropolitan Jail just reported a new case of covert 19.
Jones is still required, UH, to complete a minimum of 90 day outpatient treatment, maximum fines and fees, community service and all of the requirements are also included.
A CZ attorney and Mr Jones have been made aware to this.
If he fails to do so, the state will seek to impose the balance of any jail time without regard to for any exceptional cir***stances, even the you know, sentencing or going through that through that process because of what's happening with the jails.
So if there was ever a time that this was gonna happen, that right there is to me seems like the start to the risk for someone who's having their third Do you want? I'm not saying I want and don't move, you know, to go to jail or whatever.
That might be what he might be.
What he needs to not hurt go out there are because you don't know what he might do it again tomorrow or what? Since then, John Jones has released a statement here it goes while we work to understand and cope with stress and uncer*****y surrounding the current state of our world, I want to express how truly disappointed I am that I have become the source of a negative and land again, especially during these trying times, Jones continues.
I am disappointed for letting down the people I care about most my family, friends and my fans this morning and they entered a plea deal with the Albuquerque.
A's office accept full responsibility for my actions, and I know that I have some personal work to do, which involves the unhealthy relationship without tell you what, We're gonna take a quick break, and what we're gonna do is we had a little freeze.
We're just gonna restart and, uh, pick up where we dropped up, so we'll be right back in a sec, all right?
