the bishop goes so welcome to general, were the keyboard warriors presented by The worries are kind of My name's a law.
That's what occurred because just look, I'm a, um plenty to talk about the first time.
Three weeks, something like that.
****ing I mean, do we got fight? Island? Coming, going, going down Fine.
Or in far inland.
It's more like the touchy palace or whatever they call it.
Oh, why don't we got George? How you doing, sir? What's up? I'm like, when we're ready, we're ready.
Wait, we're talking about We just started right now.
You're in time, but you're on time, but I will take it.
We'll get your take birds on this fight Island stuff.
Can you believe this is actually happening? The Fight island.
So that's gonna be the international shows.
And I don't think they dive old in there.
Then I guess what they're doing at Tachi Palace will buy it.
Ah, yeah, I guess I do.
Um, I think if they had just done it from one day to the next, like probably, but it would have been shocked, you know, But I think they've had a lot of time during the pandemic, which I get a pound or more gold for them to just exhaust everything that was out there to him, like Abu Dhabi, Russia of the international waters.
You know, native, um, boil.
Everything here was out there.
Um, so, yeah, I believe I believe it.
And, you know, Donald Sorry about Dana Has a lot of connections of a second.
That was their friend and slaver.
At some point, everything will come up.
I'm sure that he's probably consulted him, you know, but yeah.
I mean, he's got a lot of connections, so it's totally believable.
Fred wasn't the minute he wasn't believing.
And now he's like, uh right.
You know what, man? I don't know.
I ****ing guess I I'll tell you what.
I have passed a little believe another ship to be fair.
Fight island I wouldn't wear like and who governs such an island? Did they just get Jeffrey Epstein's old joint? And they're just gonna ****ing, like, built like I have no idea what's happening.
I'll go along with it, but I'm still ****ing weirded out over the tasting palace thing.
They're like And that rose just pulled out, right? Like this is ****ing chaos.
What is going on? You know, of course, Dana White says they're gonna have the best testing in the world.
He literally ****ing sounds like Donald Trump up there.
It's gonna be the best testing the best technique ever has to be the greatest testing.
It's going to be delivered to Mr Like Us E.
Oh, it's doing it.
Look, man, I'm craving some fights, just like all y'all Tony Ferguson, Justin Gage.
He gets my ****ing snake hard.
But I I said, and I mean, this was all joking aside.
I hope nothing goes wrong because it's like it's It's like being a drug dealer, Jack.
They have a tiny margin.
Everything has to go perfect for this little ordeal to keep on going.
If they **** up at one minute.
What if one camera guy catches the wrong sneeze? This old Duncan cancel that whole bucket island and everything.
It's It's risky at best, right? Right.
You know, they are lucky in that.
Brasilia hasn't resulted in anything, right? He said, I've heard of it.
I think the only one that was close was random.
Marcus had said something about her and a fever or something.
But she got back home, and I don't know if there was any follow up.
I think it was on the Luke Thomas Show.
I went back towards Twitter a few days later and she didn't seem to report anything.
You chalk it up to okay, everyone's good.
But, uh, like, like, a private thing only takes one.
And I believe that you have seen that they're gonna overcompensate O r.
Maybe not the right word.
They're gonna go out of their way to really, really be safe, you know? So they're saying they're having, ah, couple doctors there, and then they are gonna have No, um, just a room where the doctors can contend to.
I think they're gonna have actual facilities.
So I think they're gonna do everything possible to still pull this off and keep everybody's health intact.
But, uh, you know, it just seems like if we only wait another three weeks or a month, I think we would have so much more awareness.
And I think we'd all be in a better place that if Dana would then make the announcement that now they're going forward.
I think he would get a lot less grief, and I think the fans and the media would rally behind them a little bit more.
Well, it's like we're right in the middle of the hurricane and we're all in the ba*****t hunkering down and we think the worst is gone by we think were their, you know.
Luckily, luckily, the roof hasn't blown off, but let's let it go by a little bit.
You know, Let's let it go by and then, like, step outside and see what the damage is and then make some decisions.
But, um, he wants to get after it.
He really you know, he's really married to this date April 18th. Easy.
It's gotta be done.
So once he sets his mind, you know, there's really no stopping him that that's the stubborn side where, uh, that that actually mirrors Trump.
You know where Trump gets up there and says, hydroxy Clark, win or whatever.
And then crowd she and the other lady whispering is you know what I'm talking about, You know, like settle down.
Uh, and but Dana, you know, he just doesn't want to listen to me.
Oh, you know, it's It's ah in and the whole thing's a rough with it, but do you have people kind of irresponsible? But they using that word say response.
Are you getting fighters and you know and bats? And then on top of that people are you defending it saying for fighters, one of fighters gotta fight.
Fighters want to fight. They want to get paid.
It's a whole kind of a mess, but But is it a little responsible to be putting under way right now? Even with, like, the limited number of every bill, they're gonna be in the building.
Yeah, I think I think uh, yeah, the short answer is yes.
E like right now we're You know, if you think about I was just telling goes right now that New York is kind of like the epicenter in the United States, and it seems like they're they reach this apex, and now they're leveling off.
That said, I think we had 1700 deaths today, which is terrible.
But as far as the other statistics, like new cases and, uh, patients on ventilators and into being incubation or whatever, it's called.
All those numbers seem to be leveling off, or at least trending downward.
And New York gave California heads up.
New York gave Nevada heads up.
A few of the other states May May, may not get, you know, may not be that lucky, especially the ones with big cities like Detroit, Michigan, Chicago, Illinois, New Orleans, Louisiana especially, You know, our cities that have recently either had reasons to get together.
Like for New Orleans.
It appears that Marty Grove is actually what's good for the state of Florida, not any specific city.
It seems like that little spring break is gonna sting them.
And then the Detroit and Chicago just big, big, big cities, you know.
But like I say, just that he had waited a little bit more.
I think it would be classified as irresponsible because I think there would be so much more data.
You know what I mean? What they're saying, they're saying that in New York there's the hospitals they're able to breed.
Some of the staff is able to like, instead of an 18 hour shift, have ah, an eight hour shift and go home recharge the batteries.
It's like like I say all that starting to clear up a little bit, you know? Have some consideration for the rest of the world.
You know where they're going to go.
But what if they're taking our beds? Were before that, Actually have Kobe 19.
I mean, I don't know. It's hard to predict what's gonna happen in 10 days.
I'm afraid we think Fred Vega? Yeah.
Yeah. Sorry. We got a ****ing major lag.
Apparently, everybody on Earth is online right now.
So that's the thing.
No, Look, I think ****ing double g just note it.
I think this thing is changing drastically day by day, and two weeks from now, we could be in a completely different scenario where it's not that big of a deal.
Him doing it right ****ing now.
Just forcing it, bringing up the island in this whole thing.
I mean, it feels irresponsible is ****.
Don't get me wrong.
I'm gonna watch the fights.
And again, I'm excited that we're gonna get some fights.
But again, if one ****ing cameraman catches this ****, I don't know.
This is going to be extremely interesting, I guess.
It's gonna be 2020 with this one.
If it goes down and they do all the right testing and nobody comes out on the other end, they make their millions.
We get our entertainment, the fighters get paid.
Everybody's happy as a lark.
But if one ****ing person catches this **** and start spreading around the UFC facilities, God forbid DW gets it himself, it's going to be a ****ing **** show.
It'll definitely a message.
It's already kind of a mess, right? For example, Rose pulled out today, right? Um and I don't know if anyone has anyone heard.
Why at all, Any rumors, No reason was disclosed A cz of what I read about half an hour ago.
I mean, nobody's next.
Is it hard to believe that she just came to her senses and figured that whatever money they might be trying to pay her is probably not worth the risk of getting this this disease, you know, because it comes out to that.
That equivocation, right? Is the money that the UFC is willing to pay.
You worth possibly getting sick.
Yeah, friend. God.
Well, okay, So, like, hold on the island is just silliness.
We can go with jokes up.
Let's just slow down and talk about ****ing the event that's supposed to happen.
Is it? What is it? Taichi Palace.
I'm always ****ing words up.
Um, so Okay, logistically, how is this supposed to happen? I mean, fighters still got to come in from all over the country.
They're gonna have to fly in from them airports.
And then what? Dana White said they're going to fly him to a specific location, and then they're gonna bust him in from there.
Well, it's I know, Fred.
Uh, George has been there before.
I think he called fights there before I talk to you. Talentless.
Right, George? Um, Sarah a pretty remarry.
Oh, And what they're saying is that ah, lot of the athletes are gonna pretty much either have the service is of a private plane.
Yeah, somewhere gonna just drive there.
Ah, but they're really trying their best to just take them individually.
Which is what we heard happened in Brasilia.
You know, you usually they board him on a bus and they got, like, the early fighting, you know, the pre Lim fighters and then the other.
I mean, they're not doing anything like that where they're mixing up fighters and bands or buses in that regard, they're going out of their way to keep them all separate.
So that's something I heard about Brasilia and I heard even a toxic palaces.
It's gonna be a completely different thing.
Talk to palace to shut down to the public.
So they have the whole resort to themselves.
So they have a home.
How they have, you know, the all the conference rooms spaces, you know, needed.
You know, they have the arena, so they're OK in that regard.
I mean, without, I mean, just from having been there 57 years ago and from what I've been reading.
But let's wait till that wave of fighters comes back and tell this how it waas, right? Right.
Like I say, I think most of us are being pretty careful.
But all it takes is a theme is all it takes on asymptomatic carrier who doesn't even know, you know, have it that can such a handrail that you know the same handrail that, uh, you're using the medical up your stairs because you you know you have your bag.
You're totally normal stuff with you.
So you're just casually grabbing a hand.
Honey, they can't think of everything where they're disinfecting elevator buttons and hand rail, right? You know, there's a few things that you're gonna remember, you know, but but there's a few things where you can possibly slip off.
And that's the scary thing.
We we don't want anybody Thio contract.
It's at all Now here's here's what I I don't know if this is the the approach that the UFC my take, but let's say that they bring all the fighters in, and then after the fights, they have their medical staff that they bring in, take care of everybody and then quarantine everybody there at the hotel for the what is it like 7 to 14 days, 10 days or whatever and then they send everybody home.
Now, do you not think that if they're able to do something like that, you know, I have all the medical staff, have everybody quarantine, do everything, and then you get everybody home safe and it all goes off perfectly as it as you know, they think it's gonna go.
Do you not think that a lot of other organizations are gonna look to the UFC and go Well, I mean, the way they did it was very, very safe, very, very effective.
And now they're making money, and we're gonna seeem or companies trying to do the same.
No, I don't think so.
I mean, listen, the NBA already got their ass banquet it, like at the end.
A ain't gonna do nothing.
I think the NFL a major league baseball are pretty much gonna follow their lead.
No, Like I mean, mm, A is unique in that it's basically just two competitors.
It's not a team of people out there compete, and I don't I don't think you're going to see any sort of teams jump back in that bull****.
They don't give a **** what the UFC does.
I wonder, really what that numbers will be.
There's this idea because the UFC is gonna be the only thing on TV, you know, it's like the idea that if they made all drugs legal tomorrow, we don't just go out, start smoking crack.
I don't think that just because the UFC is the only thing on soccer moms are gonna be watching Tony Justin way.
But I think the numbers will pretty much be **** near the same they would have been otherwise.
You might have a few of the rugby head.
They're some of the football fans and a pie it, But like, generally speaking, the rest of the world still ****ting their pants that the world in the middle of a pandemic, then believe me in the grand scheme of things, nobody gives a **** about Justin Tony Right now, quite frankly, that's not even the fight. We want it.
But, like, that's not even exactly what we wanted to let alone the rest of the outside world.
Yeah, and so football's in a really good spot because they even though there's the whole preseason and everything to worry about, they got a few months of a buffer before they have to come to their decisions.
But NHL, an MBA, have seasons to finish same with the English Premier League almost identical.
You know where stuff ends like in April and May, depending on playoffs and and, uh, tournaments or whatever.
Ah, and major league baseball just gonna have to obviously delay and either come up with a shortened season.
He did when they have the right or, um or cancel, I guess, if they, you know, depending on how far out it goes.
But that said, Fred's right, It's not apples to apples because this is mano a mano with the team you know of a cut man in the corner, man, and whatever you know, on your side.
And then if the isolations done properly, which again? Talk to Powers is pretty legit.
Guys, it's been pretty big, and I could see them.
I could almost see every team having its own floor.
Uh, 4 30 teams there.
Oh, are released sections, you know, court, uh, where they markham off, then we don't worry about anything for another seven days.
They're exchanging, you know, presence is with 12 people from the other team, including the coaches on.
Then they got to do where four games in a week, Uh, and then that's too risky right now.
So they need to really wait until this thing dies down a little bit more.
If one of the sport's gonna come back sooner, it was gonna be something like, I'm a boxing nascar, perhaps golf.
You know, all of these with no audiences, but sports that can be done, I guess more separately.
Not just, I think the only one the only sport that really hasn't taking too much of a stop is wrestling, right? They just had their biggest event for free for everybody.
It was kind of weird.
Addy, you saw Russell mania was odd, so I mean, in the grand scheme of things, I mean, I guess a lot of a lot of things were starting to see is that the crowd is a big factor in this thing.
And I think Fred had said it before where? This event Ah, big enough event with no crowd might just not even might even feel right, right? Like, I mean, all of us talked about how in Brasilia kind of didn't even seem like a like a really good event just because there was no crowd reaction.
There was none of that, you know, I that like energy in the crowd.
And I guess with a big, big enough event like this, where you have an interim title on the line, I mean him it might just not feel good at all to watch this of that go down.
Plus the fact that you got Greg Hardy on the card, which, you know, like I already said, I'm watching, so yeah, well, look, maybe you know what I would do. I would get the lady from pride.
What What's her name? That he used to scream like Lenny Heart.
Yes, I will get her after the fight's over.
Right when you're really I mean, you could almost say like a pride, like a pride fight, Right? The crowds are quiet, right? Respectful in Japan during the entire fight.
And if the engines have her freaking out.
So you missed the crowd.
That's doesn't I? Would you? I've watched tough for many years and watched anyway.
Contender Tioga home.
I've been able to see both of them up close, and it's compelling because you know that each fighter that's fighting at that particular time it's their Super Bowl, you know? So there is a little bit of interest in that regard, but, um, what helps is we're not doing anything, so our senses are heightened a little bit, and even Niko Price, 1% with Luca, almost feels like a really solid main event, and in reality there's a lot of times were for a lot of people.
Don't give it or take it.
You know, they they only want to see the top of the fights or whatever.
So in for the for the hard core fans, I think we're all going to be pretty pleased once we get to it.
And, of course, we're all hoping for the best for everybody to get home safely.
But yeah, for the casual audience it named are popping out swooned.
I don't expect huge, huge numbers.
What I do expect is that ESPN is really pleased with the U of C for giving them something.
So the UC is doing a lot for their fans, for their fighters.
They're winning on a lot of fronts.
But yeah, you know, I don't know.
I still I still feel like we could have had all this and just waited a few weeks and, uh, had so much more information to go off.
Am I even still have tiny birds? Could be Wait a little longer.
Yeah, And you know what? You guys brought a party, remember? Hardly got busted because he had the inhaler.
He has, uh, he's not after that would be serious.
And then in these last few saying, it's really popping up, that the African American communities you'd be getting at heart not only diagnosed but with actual fatalities.
So I haven't looked at the card and memorized it.
The scene, you know, harmony, harmony, black athletes care how many Latinos or White? Whatever.
But, ah, still, I I think there's gonna be a lot of people like Rose who, again, I don't know why she backed out, But every day there's more to learn.
Every day there's more than you learn that, you hear.
And some people don't just pull out that uncer*****y.
Yeah, I've been talking about this two, man.
I think that, you know, again, do it really can't be overstated How big of a deal this is right now.
I mean, a lot of fighters probably are in the best headspace.
I was just gonna ask you guys how much soccer you've been putting in these fights, right? Like hypothetically, the fights happen and Tony comes out and gets knocked out in the first round.
I'm no big Tony stand, but Tony suffer with mental illness in the past, we're literally in the worst pandemic that any of us have ever seen in our lifetime.
Probably the worst that any of us ever will.
Everybody is probably on edge.
You know, Uh, thug Rose has been known to deal with some mental issues.
One might argue that she's just like, Yo, **** that.
I'm ****ing having bad anxiety.
I don't want to travel.
I'm nervous about being on planes.
I don't let nothing by the Ri Jack and I'll nervous myself now.
But we're all nervous.
Everybody like bro, I turn on the news and the punk ass newsman and even there it's just is at his house with, like, the news icon on his TV in the background.
I've never seen anything like this.
Little things like that give me anxiety.
I would imagine it gives the fighters anxiety to It's almost like we do this event and guys kind of get guys and girls all must get a Mulligan like, if you lose their on this time, you could be like, you know, I wasn't cutting weight.
My ****ing anxiety was out of hand.
Like I last thing I was thinking about was that fight.
I need to get paid.
But, you know, it's the worst time in the world.
Have to focus on something for a lot of people.
Your point that people talking about that with Rose too.
Just like you're saying a minute to help the issue. People.
Honestly, I've seen some negative stuff and talk.
My rose, when she agreed to find on the fighting in April and all that and I'm pulling out wasn't would do that.
Are you really gonna blame him? Like anybody got to say is that I won't believe any fighter that pulls out in these times.
Like I wouldn't either.
Terrible, that they're saying stuff like that.
Especially without her even declaring the reason.
How do we know that her best friend who your next door neighbor may have just gotten it or or, you know, whatever.
I don't wanna I don't wanna put that into existence.
Threat? We don't know the reason yet, and yeah, Rose has in the past, uh, you know, on her own, she's admitted that she's had, you know, some mental illness issues, and we just don't know what he's thinking, because this is something none of us have ever gone.
I wouldn't, in a way, the casualty numbers and things like that.
You can't compare it to a world war.
But you have court none of it for cowering every time we hear a boom.
I don't want to compare what our grandparents great grandparents went through, but but But still we've ever experienced anything like this.
It's a strange strings, times for sure with the gloomy Because, Mama Rose, I think what you see two or five when she almost pulled out a fight last second because because of the whole thing with Connor throwing a dollar through the wind through the bus window that got to her too.
She she was thinking about pulling out and talk to her how to be whatever.
But I mean ****, Fred.
And sorry, not not not to make light of that situation, and I'm sure that was somewhat traumatic.
But it is traumatic.
Is that was This has gotta be on a completely different ****ing level.
Everybody's new show.
The whole world is shutting down like this is a true you know thing for all of us.
The worry about man like I was just jokingly say, What's the over under bar fighters that make weight for this event out there too overweight and just be like, Yo, listen, I could hold foods wasn't open, Jack.
I couldn't get my organic lamb like, you know, what you gonna do? I think I think the bigger thing is that we got to see how the UFC, because they keep Dana White keeps basically saying that he's got everything under control.
And what was the statement? Something something in regards to like, You're safer going to this event and going to the grocery store when he put it right to Brett Akimoto.
Um, so I mean, he has to deliver on that right then.
That's the biggest thing, like friends that if anybody even even like security or something, gets sick because of this event, that is gonna be a real real big blemish on the UFC, and probably not the UFC, but Dana White, specifically because he's pushing so hard for this to happen.
Um, it's just not gonna be a good look for him, and I don't know how he's gonna spin that.
Ah, do Dave, man. Come on, bro.
This is Ray Borg rd, miss.
Um uh, that you said he was gonna move up a division of you Mr Waiting.
And moving up some, um, nothing.
But he's gonna retired, right? Right.
Yeah, But the last time, Yeah, you know, I know that he's been him and his family have been through a lot, and there's gonna be a lot of pressure on him.
A lot of eyeballs on even going back to something.
Fred said these fighters that lose their stock's gonna drop, but not as much as other fights.
Because what they're going through right now, uh, you know, I think it's going to be They're good.
They're gonna score some points with the U.
The so I I applaud them all for going out there and competing and doing what they got to do to provide for their families.
They made the decision some.
We're gonna stick to it, and there might be some other drop offs, but I don't think I don't think a lot of them will fall thus far.
You know, um, you know, down the rankings or whatever.
I don't even know anyone will get fired after something like this.
um, at least I hope that that came.
But 12 fighters are gonna Obviously you're great about their decision and everything.
The winning cures everything and then a or losing is just gonna be like those guys got that pick fights on five days notice.
Three days on this.
Well, was, I think, And what were they doing? You know, and the second gas themselves.
But that that kind of almost every of adventures I'm gonna second guess a couple about Harry.
Fred is, um no, no, I'm gonna They were gonna say something. Yeah.
So with this whole thing in that, we're gonna on section on this one.
Uh, this is an irresponsible disgrace.
Take doctors away from treating those in need from the pandemic bearing up.
And there was a lot of talk about Okay, we're gonna test everybody.
We're gonna make sure everyone's good and clean and don't have this stuff when their general population is having a really hard time getting tested Her.
And now, right, Like we're just happened.
Uh, just talking about it with the n b a n.
Ba has been testing all ready to the every player they have.
And meanwhile you know you can't go to the emergency room and to get tested because they just don't have tests that, you know, they turn around times like fighter seven days in some spots.
It's a whole kind of mess and everything.
There's so many moving, moving parts.
I consider the actual like that, all right, but it's also like a lot of different discussions that people were had with that kind of thing, like putting on the bag, refreshing, no high level event that includes testing for Cove in and includes, you know, taking other people and these different kind of things right that we're talking about.
But, um, it's the boss like Fred.
You were talking about writing a little bit ago, like one person test positive, like That's it I got that's that.
That's, like, worst case scenario.
Do you think that's like the happy? I don't know that.
Actually, I remember I was gonna say something earlier.
I was going, You guys, what is? The first thing is that we think this is what happens before literally Yesterday I was still in the boat that there's no ****ing way this thing actually happens, and then DW comes out says he bought an island.
He's got this place in that place and he's talking and ****.
And now I guess I'm pretty sure.
But I just I swear, part of me still feels like this thing just doesn't come through.
I'm 90% sure that this will go down And I'll tell you what.
I'm only happened half on that island.
Should still I still don't know how you're going to deal with international flights on this island That, I mean, who, what government controls the island like? I don't like I I don't know.
I'm flabbergasted at this whole situation.
To be honest with you, I'm guessing the ruler of the island King Dana White.
Um you know, self imposed King will be the one to, you know, administer the judges and everything and, you know, testing.
And I'm sure that's what's gonna happen.
Do they're going to write that someone's gonna write something about this whole Fire Island leave. It actually goes down.
The one guy on the planet had the balls to buying island to make sure his organization compartment events abo it going home.
And you'd seriously, is that ****ing legal? What do you mean by that buys it I live from Who is there an island to control like that? Some government doesn't control.
Lookie like how would have their own private island? What the **** does that mean? I got no idea that several tax brackets higher than mine.
I'm no clue how they're thinking is.
Well, here's the thing we were setting up shop in on an existing island.
So, like if I had to guess which I don't think reasonably close.
But But for example, the Bahamas got hit really hard with a hurricane.
Last bear Arms is a series of island.
Luckily, the tourist 311 That's got I forget the name of that really beautiful hotel.
Do you guys remember the name? Yeah, on the bombs.
Are you Bahamas? The subway, So I know it, but what the what? Some of the others. I got robberies.
I could see the You may be putting a human $1,000,000 to help in that recovery because some of the islands they're still rebuilding, but probably an existing Ireland, where they know that there's already some sort of infrastructure there.
And and Ah, look, we're gonna put the money to continue with your recovery and he would have this island.
You know, something that's think about what I'm thinking.
It's got to be something between South America and Europe.
Something in the Caribbean a little bit, Uh, And then there's somebody for fighters placed in Florida as well.
I don't think it's anything on the Pacific side.
I think it's somewhere in the Atlantic side because they said specifically, they want a service the, ah, the international cards.
And so another thing.
A lot think about why gambling have been successful, like in chorus in Costa Rica.
And you just have more lax laws when it comes to gaming and probably, you know, other types of competition.
So I'm thinking the Caribbean Now that said, uh, I also proud of Earth.
They were buying an island.
Why doesn't have any video? Ah, doesn't joke, Frances, The guy from girls gone wild, Didn't he owned an island? It's okay.
I was thinking about something like that.
But I think when I when I want up reading a little bit more literature on this, it seems like they're just gonna basically, uh, set up shop on an island.
If you guys haven't seen that do***entary about the fire festival? Yes, I mean, they literally just found an island that basically, like, kind of was not really inhabited or anything on.
They kind of just kind of threw tents together and try to get their festival done.
So I mean, it's not beyond the realm of possibility of just, you know, finding a patch of dirt somewhere that's close enough to like some other you know, some other transitioned are, ah, vacation spot where they could just fairy people over like there's plenty of islands and, like, you know, like like George said in the Bahamas, in the Caribbean, you know, in certain other areas where there's just islands of just dirt where there's nothing, you know that there's no infrastructure, there's nothing and people don't own anything and also comes to mind Richard Branson.
If you've ever seen his island, he has an island where he has like a hotel, and he has, like lots of really, really famous people go and stay for, you know, for extended time.
So I mean, there's plenty of islands out there that we don't know about, like any sense out of our tax bracket.
Duke from fire fest with the prison, though, like all of these islands are controlled by government somewhere Vegas is shut down.
New York City, like I feel like a part of me feels like eventually, like, governments worldwide are gonna be like you're doing what you're going for.
A fight on a like number.
You're not like German.
Like all these countries have their biggest cities locked down.
But yet D w just gonna be flying humans all around the world, huh? France.
Italy's ****ing dying on the vine, but we'll just ship him in and out like I just don't see this happening.
I see a lot of places ended up like Russia.
Like Herbie can't go nowhere.
He's stuck there, like, aren't a lot of other countries like that where they're not allowing international flights.
Wait, Are we not allowing international flights like how the **** is that like Okay, he found that island.
They got a bunch of money.
So the **** what? That island isn't just like free game to the planet.
Surely America or Russia or ****ing China.
Somebody owns that *****.
Okay, money talks, Dude, if you got enough money someone listen to you.
We're so pleased with the athletic commission.
And plus you have You have a direct line from Dana White to the president, right? Like there, at least.
You know, they're kind of know each other pretty well enough that they have.
You know, each other's phone number, I'm sure.
So I'm sure there's, like, at least some avenue where they can help each other there in that aspect, for sure.
Uh, Dave, man just put yeah, temperatures in precaution before he's only gonna put the bag goes hand everyone's forehead.
And then we got people blaming Carol basket already? Uh, yes.
Oh, it's already put it on your Joe.
Exotic. Maybe getting pardoned.
You'll see that they the trouble is talking about your hard Look at it.
It sze I mean, this is reality for us, but it seems so fake.
Um, we're living in a ****ing movie right now, man.
No, it's too seriously in a movie.
This is nothing crazy.
Now, wonder you're talking about biggest being closed, and it is like, um, there's Webcams.
You could see like there's webcams all over in Vegas, but something you can actually access from like anywhere.
And like Fremont Street, there's a karaoke.
You want to know that you go now, just the Fremont Street one.
But there's no traffic, and we just the local people right there, they have to go through to go home and all that.
But if nobody there wouldn't I don't see the big deal of putting on an event there now, have they? I think the number out of State Athletic Commission won't allow it, so right, because I've seen ah Ah, Lion fight! Lui Tai There.
Now they say a ring.
It was actually really, really cool.
Uh, I'm not a stick, and I think Cris Cyborg was on that card, but it was really I liked it.
And it just blows down to the nomadic Good athletic commission and what was going on earlier, which is remembered before we get to the island.
Because again, that's for international shows like it's the first time that a laprise the one that's supposed to take place in May with pseudo.
And although we got a few weeks before that, I think one problem they might run into and I'm not trying to jinx, um is they're on tribal land, which discovered which governs themselves there or anything Governor do come from California says really doesn't apply.
The California state of other Commissions already stated that if Governor Newsome says they're not supposed to have shows there, then the State Athletic Commission is not gonna oversee the show, which is something they've done even when Tachi Palace has asked them to come in in the past.
They've done it when they're asked to come in.
But if project if under their promoted license they asked them to come in and oversee it and they elect not to do it, then then, ah, all right, just don't think they're already saying they're gonna like not to do it.
So that means the UFC is gonna bring in their own commission officials and referees, just like they do with the European shows like Belt or when they go to the UK.
However, I'm hearing that ABC my affection commission officials or referees or grudges if they part ink in this.
So that's something I'm interested in seeing if you go to like a Herb Dean or Jason Herzog and say, Here's a small fine if you go and do it.
They may pay the fine but get compensated on the other end.
But if they're told a this is really, really gonna be Ah ah, harsh penalty.
Like a suspension of six months or a year because you're doing this, then they may back out.
So that's something that I think we're gonna monitor.
There won't be because there's no collecting from the California State Athletic Commission here.
That's why they're going to tribal land, has attributed it to go like, you know, different kind of reps and stuff like that.
If those guys aren't willing and the guys like her being unwilling or Mark, God are not willing to do it, they're gonna go some low quality.
You know, with all due respect, Laurel quality reps and all that, we can have some crazy stuff in that event, man.
For real, we couldn't bear that.
Now what the ****ing judges arrest we got Now it's chaos every weekend.
We definitely don't need whoever they're hustling up on the ****ing Indian reservation.
So you're saying the return of Marty Yamasaki is imminent? Perhaps the people of the cottage ever do have your ****ing bodies coming out of retirement now.
But But both those guys are like Toby to Michael Scott from the office, and I don't know why being Michael Scott, he can't stay in here with those two dudes.
You better questions? Well, Joe Rogan actually commentate this event.
Yeah, because when he was on his podcast, what you've got about a week ago, I think he was under the impression that it was gonna be out of the country.
And as you all know, he's really slow down on the travel when it comes to the pay per view shows.
So I think he was probably thinking on that end, I don't want to speak on his behalf because, like I said, on bone is off What I heard on the podcast and then did the whites would be pretty adamant that Joan Growing will be there but a guy, if you think about it.
Joe Rogan lives about on our north of l. A.
From worries that your doctor causes by two hours you could probably get in the car, go down, then announce the fight and be home that night, you know? I mean, he's not hopping on a plane.
He's just driving himself.
Or maybe you get the driver and that's that.
And the same thing with Daniel Cormier, who we talked to the other day.
He's in San Jose from friends, ate a president or just outside of president, probably about the same so I could speak both of them or even dominant cruises Boots in San Diego driving.
Not having to worry about a plane going in there, doing their job and getting the hell out of cards.
Look now, after what mean the light side of my dream.
It's an area close to General Bogan.
I see it is a strong possibility.
Yeah, I mean, like, your own has got enough what he calls the F.
U money, right? Like he's got that kind of money.
And anyway, well, you're going to do this, you know, people are saying, like, remember you swore we sort of dozen.
You mean with that kind of thing? I think we should walk away.
But see, we had ah, days talking about today's pockets.
Lex Friedman, who owned the one that Rudo released today, seem like he was debating it onto his podcast, Um, his guests.
It sound like he shouldn't be too worried about it.
But here's a good question.
Fred be commentator's joke was a lot of credibility with you.
If Joe Comet say so, if he does it, does he lose credibility with me? Huh? I mean, no, like, I really don't know which way.
The little missus.
It's It's very much 50 50.
I see how you could make the argument that we all should just ****ing chill and be safe and do what the experts say, which is social distancing, which does not include ****ing cage fights.
Then again, people still are getting out.
We're going to the grocery stores.
They're going to gas station, right? We're moving around to the degree that they have that I realized that **** really is essential.
And this is not.
But if that's considered their job like, I guess, to answer your ****ing question No, I wouldn't hate on job.
I could literally understand it either way.
If you decided to say, **** it.
Like you said, He's a two hour car driver drive down there.
Where's his mask? A charge that he is safest possible doing job and fulfill his contract um, you know, I get it.
Or if he just took us there and then said, **** that, I've got kids, I'm not doing it.
I would also kind of understanding there, but I wasn't judging from either way.
It's so hard to tell if this thing right now, like nobody really ****ing knows exactly how dangerous like this might go off without a hitch.
Nobody might not have nothing, and it might run smoothly.
Then again, four people could catch this shoot the first event, and this could blow up in all of our face.
We literally just kind of have no idea, right? A spark.
This whole Ben goes like I'm kind of on this whole car is irresponsible.
Yes, in my opinion, it is.
Should we be doing that? No, we shouldn't.
They shouldn't be doing the event, but they're doing it anyway.
Why would I watch you? I mean, like, it's a weird thing that people are boycotting the **** thing.
So it's just I mean, I don't first bought on boycott Very much is it just takes too much African cut stuff.
But the ah, like just sitting watching this because Greg Hardy's on it that's this, But he's been on that stand forever now with this kind of thing, Georgie people were actually has been The people started the boycott ust to 49 hashtag it didn't last very long, but it was there for a little bit.
Um, do you think people will actually not watch it if it goes on anyway? Maybe anybody that's been affected by it personally, they may still be in a heightened stage of sensitivity or disgust or whatever, and Ah, so I yeah, course someone on this planet will, How big will be? I have no idea.
But I don't think you should think you have your e.
I can respect anybody's opinion who disagrees with the decision.
Just like I know all that have been saying right now.
You have. See? Okay, but you're doing it anyway. All right. Cool.
Well, let's break down the card because, uh, happening it's our job to cover it.
I don't see anything wrong with watching it.
The competition probably won't be the high level that we're expected.
You know that or that we're used to seeing but still why? Everybody's in the same boat.
So, um yeah, I I would I would definitely watch it. I'm curious.
Jessie, you're gonna watch the hole card or just the Greg Hardy fight.
That's that's what I've been doing since ah, great party got into the UFC.
Well, what other fighters have to do with it? I'd choose not Thio.
Give the USC my my buying power of my my view because they choose to have great cardio on there on the card.
That's just my point of view.
All right? You know, I get it. George.
The first time I talked about it, Fred was like, Well, what if the card is on on a card with John Jones and I told them it would pain me.
It would hurt me, but I just I wouldn't watch it.
That's just where I stand.
Do we tried so many times to ask him why he won't watch it? And what about this? And what about that? And he just does not budge.
People who do people that tweet at me or D m because I don't want to see it just bull****ting watching it.
I was like No, he really doesn't like.
You can see he's playing.
He sticks to it to his guns on. That's great.
I'm tasting right now.
If Greg Hardy gets knocked out, I'm sending little clip of it to the D.
EMS is going down in the dean's.
You're not getting away from Jesus.
I'm ****ing Senator there immediately.
Oh, he's fighting Del Castro.
You're going to Castro.
Yeah, that's possible.
I mean, I was just ahead.
We fight, but that's possible.
Yeah, it might happen.
Is it? Disney with Here is just a little weirdly ironic.
Greg Hardy's on this.
If there's life with asthma running that Yeah, well know yet kind of.
It also just that everybody hates him.
It's like the front line of a war like Greg.
Greg, what are you doing? Work hard, coming up in the middle of a ****ing tan.
So, Greg, he's like, you bet your camp put me in, Boss.
Yeah, the youth.
He can't get away from the little subplots that add to the whole controversy.
Remember when him in? Ah, Rachel Austin, which were on the same card.
I mean, whoever's building that card, all you had to do was separate them by a week.
And you could have avoided a lot of drama, you know? But instead they were on the same card, and it's sometimes, you see, I don't know, they have a I've been in that building so many times.
And you think there'd be someone in charge of just having all the ducks in a row When it comes to stuff, you know, giblet, remember that with Reebok and I don't know, there's just little these little hiccups that they do that it's just I don't know.
But I think I think at that time we talked about I think Fred is the one that brought it up That is possible that they see something, and maybe it's like, right within the reach of taking it, like taking care of it.
And they go, you know what? Just let it go, because people are gonna talk about it.
People gonna put their, you know this out there, and they're gonna talk about our our you know, our event that's coming up.
You know, some of the fighters is going to put a light on us, and it seems to me like the UFC is very much.
Ah, and you know, there's no such thing as bad news or bad.
Ah, you know, better reporting for them because any kind of eyes on the sport is is good enough for them.
So it just seems like they really we'll let everything roll, like Okay, Yeah, We'll just keep going.
Yeah, well, when green, it was 30 years old.
And when Dana was 30 years old and they needed all the press that could get, I could see that point of view.
But come on, man. There, there.
25 billion company that often compares itself to the NFL, the MBA, MLB, and they are on ESPN.
I mean, act like it.
You know what I mean? And I just I don't know.
I don't scene with 50. Now.
He's no longer 30.
He's a respected businessman, per se because of what he did.
You know, he had a huge hand and turning two million in the 4.
I just think that right now they, uh, they still make these careless mistakes that that company like that should not be making act like the NFL of mixed martial arts.
Don't act like a a show that needs anything in everyone.
You know, uh, you know, you don't need the bus in celebrities to sit in your front row if they show up.
If not, no, it's the ****ing us eat, for crying out loud, you know, we're gonna tune in or they're not gonna tune in.
But this is This is the product we are professionals here you got Here is a good question.
So Tony loses part, which is possible it could be our ah, Justin gauging.
And if it could be tried to screw so worth it, who was kicked out? No.
No, it was No, it wasn't worth it.
Like is. Then we get ****ed out of the Tony.
Uh, Tony have been fine, and that's the fight we really wanted.
And yeah, we'll get Justin, have even That will be a good fight.
But like, you know, we waited ****ing 132 years for that.
Tony had be fight. Now this happens.
And then again, Tony gets be under the extremely strange cir***stances.
It's just out of a man like I'm just I'm not really in love with it.
I'm definitely going to watch the fights.
But I think George really noted earlier.
Man, I think that week by week, this thing changes drastically.
If you could have waited another two or three weeks, I think you could have started doing these things hopefully.
And it just would have all looked and felt a lot different, like, now, you know.
Listen, Danna Dane is a gambler.
He's a gambling man.
We all know that he likes his blackjack.
I think this is the ultimate gamble.
If it works, he looks like the hotshot cowboy.
He is making money and getting America right back on the map.
Just bang, bang, bang.
We didn't skip a beat.
You imagine this, But this feather in his cap after all this is said and done, if he gets this and nothing goes wrong, everybody coward.
But us Baby Bubba.
But boy, God forbid it does go wrong.
And 235 people end up with his virus and God forbid and somebody ends up terribly sick like this is the ultimate ****ing gamble for him.
And in the long run, it might just have not been worth it.
It might have been better to just wait, But we'll see.
Yeah, I'm with you on that.
I think it would be better to just wait, but what he can do, George, when you think about that, it's a Tony loses, then we only only loses.
It'll be a **** shame because we wanted to see Tony hanging L on Habib or Hubby show Tony Wii's undefeated and even though 15 and one is respectable, you're not Habib.
You're not the chance.
I wanted to see that show down.
It's been such an amazing buildup.
So yeah, that will be disappointed.
And even though, of course, they could meet one more down the road.
It's not the same because right now Tony is the last wedding 10 years if I'm not mistaken.
So even though he's got the three losses is his third loss was 10 years ago.
He's on an amazing street and, plus the quite, you know, the other four times that it's falling off or whatever.
It's just something we've all wanted to see, and the fact that it's not happening is a **** shame.
And yet again not toe beat the dead horse.
I think he probably could have done it.
I think that getting somewhere in August, we could have just had it.
And we waited this long.
I would've waited till August.
Right? You wait.
You waited a month or two, you couldn't wait another another one like it.
Just give her time.
Was throwing Kobe and Woodley, right? I'm right.
Or make your big Mac that anyway, an event for us to 42.
We know we got Rosen struck and and in God knew from the Columbus.
So they're gonna be on this card and and then the other one, we wait until, you know, August when Bebe already done Ramadan and started, you know, the new camp and he can get out of Russia.
And then bam, it's back on. It's worth.
It's worth the wait, Fellas.
To be fair, the card is pretty ****ing amazing.
The card, the card is fire border.
I like it. I like the card.
Yeah, I mean, I know we just lost rose and and drive.
We lost at least Rose.
They're still trying to figure out, um, you know, to get well, right.
That's that thing lead after jam.
Legally, I bet you got a phone call you Hey, what you doing, Diego? And this seems to have no problem with the way and she kind of just like, you know, there's just this little switch.
It doesn't matter whether it's the eight day switch, the three day switch, the two weeks switch or the full camps, which she can do it.
She could manage it.
Uh, and now with her, you know, I think she's one of the last few couple in a row.
You know, it's not what we wanted, but if they wanted to stay, you know, plug someone in there now is it the coming event? No, it's not the co main event that definitely we took a hit there.
But if they really wanted to give on, drives her paycheck Ah, and just keep, you know, 12 fights going then and that that's the first, that's the first call I make exactly.
I mean, in your accusations in California and she, you know, she's down for anything, really.
So it is the card right here, you know, obviously minus and drug number June, It's, um, Span and Alvey on there you begged to get more eyes.
Michael Johnson and his worthy Brandon Barry gets bored.
Hernandez was moralists, um, Jack Ary against your eye, a hall and God was virgin stripped you were talking about.
I'm gonna go Germany.
Stevens was a complicated to me is like to me, it's dark horse part of the night.
What? My buddies went out great.
It's just It's It's I don't know, man.
Under any cir***stance, that would be, Ah, ****ing amazing card.
And I suppose it is.
I just feel strange getting excited for it.
Part of me was like, it still won't happen.
It's such a strange thing.
I mean, the whole ****ing planet issue them.
And now the UFC is gonna run this event.
I mean, the card on paper.
I mean, look at that.
Look at the name Bucket hall.
Jack Array is going to be a maid.
You were just saying Jerry Stevens and the common caters gonna be amazing, you know? Listen, Jesus, I know you don't **** with Greg Hardy like that, but he's a lightning rod for controversy.
He's gonna be on the card.
Uh, you know, it's It's a It's a brilliant car.
That just feels so strange to be excited for something like this right now.
Yeah, and just very.
Erratic and strange.
Um, for some reason, Stream Yard is starting a bug out a little bit, and it probably has to do a lot with a lot of people were doing these now.
And, you know, Netflix is jacking up all the all the bandwidth, so we're going to cut this one little short here.
Um, So, Jordan, what can I probably should get going on right now? Well, you know, we were doing less radio and more video, just like you guys were also utilizing stream yard.
And so Ah, now the show that goes and I did for many years where we actually were interviewed, driven, you know, guest, heavy phone calls, things like that.
It's basically now more of a podcast for more the old days, where it was just us breaking down news and cards and and recapping cards and things like that.
When, of course, we have the sport.
So junkie radio still there Mondays and Thursdays.
You can catch it on the website.
Uh, it drops, you know, at noon, Eastern And what? We're doing more of his video like spread our wings a little bit more where we're kind of like the t m Z guys.
We do we do something called off guard where we You know, when we're up and running around, we're trying to catch fighters off guard at the gym's at the hotels or where you come in, Do quick catch up quick videos.
Ah, and you know, a little bit more of, like, this tough type of stuff, like round table discussions.
So, uh, well, we're happy.
It's good to evolve a little bit and just difference up.
I do miss the daily grind of the radio show as it kept us more in the game or in the ah, you know, it's like this cat and mouse game that you're playing pretty much all seven days of the week, where you're talking to managers and fighters and because you're booking them on a daily basis for the next show will the next show.
And with that, you get these little bits of information.
And now that we only go two times a week and we're not doing that as much.
I kind of missed that a little bit.
So this video, things kinda helping out in that regard? Cool.
Cool. All right.
Ah, And what? Your social media, Adam.
George on Twitter and Instagram.
All right, there you go.
For Chris. You guys over problem.
This whole thing is we're I'm presenting the times and everyone's home and everyone streams.
So this is acting a little weird Something before we run to another problem.
But make sure you follow all of us. Of course.
Ah, Fred that Kirby and score in May. Jesse.
That's for 1 93 I'm about 32.
And of course, the shows that people warriors of, um, a dot com friend anything lasted before we go.
No, I mean, listen, I don't know what this pain like.
Last week on this program, I said there's no way.
And I said I would do Yeah, um, it suitable things if this show ever got made that I'll be a son of a ***** if it doesn't seem like he got made.
Well, putting that make a boy.
So don't get so many.
You get somebody tweets That's where this thing goes down there, Jesse.
Um, not just, you know, when the event happens, please D m Fred, for your Ah, yeah, please.
On the other thing is, I know we were going to talk about something to recommend if you guys haven't seen something, uh, Lulu right now has parasite on their on their service.
She could go box parasite.
It's one of the best movies for free, so you don't have to rent it.
I recommend that movie.
Um, and also, I don't know if Fred would agree with me or not, but I've been listening to that childish Gambino album or more, and it's slowly becoming one of my favorites.
Uh, recent album.
So listen for that.
All right, folks.
We'll catch you guys on the next one.
All right? Good night.
And, God, likely probably take care.
