Whatever you guys need to do to chill out.
Enjoys of combat sports talk, Talk with your boys, John.
So big news coming out over the weekend to huge topics that not a lot of people are really talking about, which is kind of surprising.
And I think I think there were more talked about initially and then kind of faded away a little bit.
And I think this is a little bit.
And I think that's where we're at right now.
Is that it faded away a little bit, and now we're trying Thio kick the tires a little bit because they are interesting topics.
And when you talk about Michael Chandler, people tend to sweep him underneath the rug because he's from below two or any sign with the UFC s. So that's one.
And she just alluded to That's fair is that Michael Chandler is UFC bound.
So Michael Chandler has officially signed on the dotted line. Correct.
He is UFC through and through.
That's a done deal.
So now we look at Michael Chandler, and what are the possibilities of him? Started going and make it a big, huge impact for the UFC.
Do you think this is a good signing by the UFC or a good signing in theory by by Michael Chandler.
Like, did it run its course officially, like Run its course? In Bella's part, I don't think it necessarily ran its course in belt or it.
Just when you've done and accomplished as much as Michael Chandler has done in the lightweight division of Bela Tor, there's only so much you could do.
Think about it as the Eddie Alvarez syndrome.
Eddie Alvarez did everything you could possibly do for below or in the lightweight division.
There was nothing left for him to do.
He built that division with Michael Chandler.
If you look at the if you look at the list of of Combatants and Belt or in the lightweight division, there's not a really a lot of people to write off about, even though if you ask Patricio Pitbull, he's like Dude blasted him.
But basically he said that you get scraps.
So in this point, But the only downside is that Patricio hasn't even fought him yet, so that fight is never gonna happen.
So the discussion is always gonna be between those two who's actually better because the fact that they never got a chance to fight that's always gonna be one of the questions.
Because the feud and the rivalry was so so prominent in belt or for a number of years, especially the last, What, Three years? Four years? Yeah, he knows, too.
So for that fight, not toe happen.
You think about all those years that Floyd Mayweather Manny Pacquiao didn't fight, and in order to be the greatest, you had to take it as like, well, he never fought Manny Pacquiao in his prime.
Now, I'm not to say that Patricio is that level and not to take anything away from the UFC fighters because I was smirking that when you said, Well, look at the look at the people in the lightweight division is because that was already on my on.
My book is that's murders of Row.
If you look at the lightweight division verse, the lightweight division of belt or just just the top guys that have been mentioned recently mentioned okay, just a Geechee who's going to get the heat for the title, right? Yeah, Tony Ferguson, Dustin boy, who were in theory, Ed talks about fighting each other that fell through does employee verse.
Michael Chandler fell through.
Connor McGregor is still an honorable mention.
Regardless of what anybody says he is still out there, right? Yep.
You mentioned Eddie Alvarez.
Eddie Alvarez being the guy that was the first person to kind of jump shift and jump over to the u F.
Right? He had it.
Nothing spectacular, right? Wouldn't you say, going for four in the UFC.
Nothing to really go home.
Go home about Will Brooks? Another guy that was a mainstay in pillow tour, Right.
This monster, This guy that could take on anybody beat anybody at will, right? Yep.
Ill will brooks.
Hottest free aging.
You have seen plucks? Um, one in three bounced Michael Chandler, 21 in five.
The athletes were there.
But you see, I always thought that Michael Chandler had better striking than Will Brooks.
I think I I almost think that is wrestling is better.
If you If you looked on paper, though, Will brooks defeat? It gave one of the defeats on Michael Chandler's record.
It was Will Brooks.
And and then you look at the interesting comparison because Kevin Lee came out and says, Oh, Michael Chandler is too small.
Kevin Lee really talk.
This guy has a losing record in his last couple of fights, but if you do three in his last five, I think something like that.
But if you look at it is like Michael Chandler's fought some 5 10 guys.
Yeah, you know what? Most notable fights.
Benson Henderson 59 Patrick E 57 Uh, he's fought some little little guys, but he's also fought some big guys. Yeah.
Is he a little other sides? Sure, but he makes it up for with skill and technique and heart. Absolutely.
And power and power.
Let's not forget power.
I just I would not put it past Michael Chan.
Michael Chandler's makeup is so much different than in Eddie Alvarez or a Will Brooks, right? You could say that.
I just I look at the murderer's row, though, and that scares me.
And then, and that's he's a backup fight to the justification.
Can he fight you? You can't say it any different.
You can't say that that you're looking at the lightweight division that UFC that is not murderers row.
It's ridiculous the amount of of strikers in that.
I mean, you've got Kevin Lee, who we just mentioned.
You've got, uh, number of other guys that it's going to take a minute for him to go through that if he's fighting.
And then you talk about how this fighting it happened, about how he became the backup playing to Habib and just in case you which everyone falls out, he slides right into the fight.
But that only happened because does Deploy and Tony Fergus if I fell through and then it was offered Dustin Boyd verse Michael Chandler.
But again, one thing you need to know about the UFC Sean is that if money becomes an issue right, I honestly believe that you're never going to go to the UFC and say, I want X, Y and Z.
I want this amount of money because you have seen has always been a staple.
Where they go, this is what we're paying you.
This is what you're going to get.
There's not a whole lot of wiggle room between them and their fighters, and usually they're the first ones that says, Okay, you could kick bricks you could get going.
But you know, what's interesting is that you talk about the money situation and it's quick to everybody to report about dust employees saying that he turned it down because, you know, um, they couldn't come to terms on the financial status of it.
But also to is like, If you listen to doesn't Employee does Employee said that Oh, it was just out of loyalty to Tony Ferguson.
Excuse you like, really? We're going with that line.
We're going with the fact that you and Tony Ferguson couldn't agree on pay, and that fight felt through that This one is not about pay.
And you did it because you wanna fight Tony Ferguson still, and in the hopes that that deal gets done, that makes no logical sense to me whatsoever.
I was trying when I read that I was like, I'm so discombobulated right now.
Like it made literally no sense for that statement, and I was trying to figure out, like, How does it even make sense? How do we even pivot where that's justifiable? I could not physically find an outcome of how that could.
Neither could I.
I was so confused.
But where do you at the at the end of this Sean Michael Chander in the UFC.
What do you think his ceiling is in the UFC? Is it champion? Middle of the pack Tender or a gatekeeper in the division? I'm gonna go with the consensus, and that is that Michael Chandler will be a UFC champion at some point.
It just depends who's at the top of the food chain does just a gay chief secure the bag is the heap because that's the only person I could think he could have a shot against.
I don't like the wrestling that could.
He has first Michael Chandler.
See? And when you talk about a B, you talk about a world class wrestler, you talk about a decent striker.
So if you if you if you look at all those, does Michael Chandler have plus over that if you were looking at it, tell the tape left and right, and you're looking at it.
Okay, So the striking of Habib striking of Michael Chandler Michael Chandler wrestling Habib Michael Chandler pledged to keep heap.
You're you're looking at apples and oranges at this point.
Yeah, and you're looking at a guy that an off day he could He could walk in there and take the strap.
But if you look at, if you look at the other guys at the top of the food chain, okay.
Is he a better striker than just the gates of hell? No.
He doesn't have the power.
That gate she has Gay Chee is a mismatch for anybody because of his all around ability.
So while I say that, yes, I see that Michael Chandler will eventually be a UFC champion.
In order for him to do that, he's got to avoid Habib.
He's got avoid a Justin G.
But the only way he does that is if a B believes is, and he's gone and G is somewhere else.
So is he a gatekeeper? No, but in some sense, he may, because he's gonna be like Eddie Alvarez.
Yeah, the middle of the pack guy that's gonna kind of be a contender.
He's gonna get that one opportunity is gonna make the most of his opportunity.
He's gonna get a title at some point.
He's gonna be the guy at the right place at the right time.
in the right moment.
That's what happened with Eddie Alvarez when he came his first UFC title.
Right place, Right moment, right.
A pony, then the next one with Connor McGregor. Wrong.
A pony destroyed.
That's the same level we're going with Michael Chandler.
He's going to get his opportunity at the right time at the right place at the right moment.
But then he's gonna get the wrong opponents at the wrong time at the wrong place.
And if that's the case, we may very well see another l.
And yeah, you know what? Me just talking this out loud just talked my own prediction right out the window.
It happens when when you're discussing a topic as such and you're laying out all the facts and you're laying out all the like the the straight down the pipe kind of decisions that are gonna be made, that could be there.
And it is really hard to think that he's gonna be at the top of the food chain and be able to sustain his greatness that he hadn't belt or I just And don't get me wrong. I like Michael Chandler.
I think the guy is a great fighter.
I just in the U S.
In this division, man, it's tough, right? It's really tough.
It was ridiculous how I go from one prediction toe like and No, no, no, no.
Like, I like Michael Chandler.
We've had a chance toe Speak to him on our show.
Genuinely a good dude, dude.
A beast of a dude.
I almost thought about Texas Tech.
See Channel congratulating him that he even got this at the same time.
I'm like, bro, I'm about to talk to you.
Talk about you on my show.
And I'm like, I'm teetering tottering.
Whether or not you're gonna be this guy that, like you were in Bella Tory, you could do the same thing you see, and I Honestly, I can't see it. I can't.
Well, the thing is that Michael Chandler does not lack confidence.
Yes, Michael Chandler came out and said that.
I mean, I am who I am.
I say I am or I'm not.
That could potentially be the best line ever.
Yes, because that will be the staple, that he will live by the moniker that he will live by going into the UFC.
You know, that should be a shirt.
I am who I say I am.
You could not have a better tag line.
I mean, dude chung us.

Like what we're doing, Dave, with the dolphins.
Thank you very much.
Hey, for the dolphins, if you're a dolphin fan.
Please, can you just start to a Via Loa, please? I'm so tired of seeing fits.
Fits with the beard, him throwing 600 touchdowns to the wrong team.
This guy loves to throw the football, and I get it.
But, man, they need to just start looking to the future.
You know who's who's trying to throw touchdowns right now and trying to catch a break.
Floyd Mayweather or Logan Paul, whichever way you wanna look.
I was gonna say Logan, Paul, because it's being discussed right now that it has been agreed upon that we will get Floyd Mayweather Jr versus Logan Paul in an expedition.
Boxing about why, like this, this is what bugs me.
Okay? Mike Feinberg from the Fighting News has reported that he has seen an agreement officially assigned by Floyd Mayweather's camp and Logan Paul.
But Logan Paul has spoken.
I've been called for this cap for a fight.
And Logan Paul was on TMZ was like, Wait, What? He was denying all reports.
But Mike Feinberg, give me a Paul brother is reporting.
Give me a Paul brother like Jesus do Cross Brothers.
First of Paul Brothers.
You're still on that kick.
It's never gonna happen.
You're talking you're talking about.
Get this to go viral.
If you're talking about small guys were small.
Were 5 ft nine, bro.
Well, they're going to care when they're, like, 6 ft two and we're cool.
We're like a buck 50.
Hey, it's not the size of the dog in the fight.
It's the size of the dog.
Whatever that saying is, Yeah, that's a stretch.
Whatever you get, you get to just ideo But you make no say Call me Michael Chandler.
I'm small in stature, but I could go up against the big fellas.
Trouble at the knees.
Mogul Paul calling for you.
God, I was okay with Floyd Mayweather and Connor McGregor.
Sean knew that Floyd Mayweather was coming out of retirement.
What? Last year? Yes, but Sean, I'm okay with Floyd Mayweather vs Connor McGregor.
I was okay with that fight. Absolutely.
I was okay with the thought of Mike Tyson and Roy Jones. Jr. Right.
Okay with that? Yeah.
What I'm not ok with is why are you to me? This comes off like it's a It's a laughing stock.
It's a joke because I'm okay with YouTubers fighting YouTubers, right? Does own Matchbox and doing stuff like that with Jake Paul.
And what's the other guy's name? Nate Robinson, the former guard from those kind of freak shows.
I'm okay with that.
But now when you're crossing over into into a mainstream sport, right, a boxer like Floyd Mayweather, there is absolutely no chance.
If I could, I should've program that that sound bite from this big man say, no chance in hell, because there is zero competitiveness between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul.
Their skill level there.
Paul's on high school wrestler.
He's put some boxing fights on there.
I applaud him for some of the stuff he's not.
He doesn't look great when he's boxing, but, hey, it's a kid's other YouTube or so it is what it is.
You bring a fan paste cool.
I'm good with it.
You bringing that fan base.
But if you're expecting the YouTuber fan base to come verse a combat sports fan base, you want to talk about the ultimate clash.
I really think that the clash between riel traditional combat sports fans versus YouTuber sports fans.
There's gonna be a clash between those two.
Those two fan groups don't go together. John.
There was a lot of debate and a lot of talk about the YouTubers on his own, remember? Yeah, they made They made Matchbox room.
Ah, lot of money.
They made his own. Ah, lot of money.
So there was a place for that This expedition fight.
What are we trying to do here? You were Floyd Mayweather.
To some, Not to me.
And that could be a different debate.
One of the greatest fighters of all time.
You're you're willing to put your pedigree your name on a youtuber.
I don't care if it's an expedition fight, right? You're willing to take your name and put it on a youtuber.
All I gotta say is there better be some **** good money involved in that because there ain't no way you could get you could get me or anybody to slap a name on a youtuber unless that dollar dollar sign keeps going like seven figures down the line.
If I'm Floyd Floyd's gotta be like, dude, I get paid over a million dollars for for stopping a YouTuber game on.
Where do I sign on that dotted line again? Here to stop around a youtuber For what? Oh, cool.
Have a great day, Right? And on that note, we'll be right back up to this break.

So thank you for the people that are tuning in to us.
But UFC Vegas 11 It's upon us, headlined by some polarizing figures.
Kobe Covey T verse Tyrone Woodley.
Both very very political figures are fighting each other.
One made an incredible statement at Wayans and one had a smug look on his face.
I was looking at this fight.
I watched the weigh ins.
I watched the little pressure that they did.
Jesus Murphy, This this was uncomfortable in so many facets, and and I was trying to figure it out of my head.
Like, how is this not gonna be uncomfortable? Like you have Kobe Covington that says I'm friends with the dawn.
You know, im Team Aga in Tyrone Woodley is something else.
They go on instagram and they call Tyrone Woodley.
Ah, fricking terrorist.
All this other nonsense.
And it was just like Okay, See, we're in this era of being offended or not being offended.
You're easily one side, and, uh, that hurts my feelings.
But yet you have Kobe Covington who's treading the waters right now on the side of the spectrum off.
Dude, you're going way too far.
At least we called him McGregor. Wait.
At least one called him.
McGregor went off his deep end.
Yeah, and he attacked Habib's father.
And then it's something that okay, but the fact that you've got the social justice right now that you've got going on between the African American community and the white community right now the severity of this situation, the political stance in what this is right now, you are risking a time by putting these two polarizing and figures right now in the limelight.
Knowing what you're going to get with Colby Covington, you know that he's gonna push the envelope that teeters the lineup to fan bases.
Shawn are telling you exactly what you are saying.
You know, you're very lucky right now that this fight is not in the public eye.
If this fight was in the public eye with, you would be seeing 10 times worst chaos than what you saw when Habib and called McGregor took center stage because of Kobe Sand Beast and Tyrone Woodley. Absolutely.
Tyrone Woodley has gone on record before saying that the thing about fighting an enema is that I could kill somebody in the in the in the cage.
He's been known to say that you're putting him in a fight in a very uncomfortable fight situation where he has legitimate disdain for the whole becoming tin.
And if this is all you say at a press conference, black lives matter.
Black lives matter, thio every question, and then you stand at the way.
You don't say anything.
You don't look at Dina white.
You don't care about what's going on.
You just you just He just gave the coldest desk there to Covington that I've ever seen.
How do you think this fight even goes? Because we're talking about We're talking about Tyrone Woodley who got annihilated by Gilbert Burns.
We're talking about Kobe Covington.
Who needs to basically when this fight to stay in contention.
And you're talking about two figures that are on left and right, political, like, basically politics sides.
This is where I keep telling everybody knows you're saying he got beat up by Usman, not Burns.
He doesn't even know who burns is.
If you listen to his post fight, I mean this brief fight, you said, um, Covington got beat up by burns.
I run, wouldn't he? Got beat up by burns? Mm.
I heard about coming to know Burns beat up Woodley.
And then I was gonna into Covington about him losing in a bad way to but still, like I'm so tickets.
I'm so sick and tired Shot of this left right.
Why do why do we have to continuously put two people or in this world in general, why we constantly have to pick sides.
And we never had to pick sides as much as we have to do now.
Like seriously, the last five years, you have to pick a side and there's no in between France side.
I wanna be the middle person, even though we're good at picking one side and sticking to it and I wanna be the middle.
I want to be the one that says, You know what? Let's keep it clean.
Let's keep it the way that needs to be.
But we're not even talk about the fight.
We're not even talking about previewing the fight.
We're talking about the social issues, the political about these people stand for, like Jesus Murphy.
Why can't we just talk about that? Kobe comes in.
This is a is a legit, troublesome troublemaker for Tyrone Woodley.
He's got the pace.
He's got the enduring.
The output that this guy could put together is ridiculous.
Loosely, he's got to get the fight to the ground.
He doesn't want to stand there and throw with Tower with Kobe coming 10 in this fight and if you look at it, you look at Tyrone Woodley.
He's lost two in a row.
Tyrone Woodley needs to come with his a game.
Because if he goes down over three in his last three fights, yeah, there's nothing left for him, Sean.
And then where does he go exactly? It's a gatekeeper mode.
Yeah, but do we even see him again? I don't think so.
You drop Oh, and three.
I don't I don't see the possibility of us seeing a fight where he needs to be at the top of the food chain, and then you gotta one.
But did that pushes Kobe coated right back to relevancy again in the division.
And then he's waiting in the wings for use members burns.
Right? Because ain't nobody else there right now. No.
So you're looking at this is Kobe.
He he stays relevant.
Tyrone Woodley loses, and his career is suspect at this point.
What's left Like it was asked to him.
Um, Covington, I was asked to him is like So what happens if he loses? What happens to his legacy? He's like, What about it? There's nothing to me.
It couldn't be more right.
He has Don't see how this he has to roll back a little bit more.
I don't see how this really hurts him.
If he loses, I just don't want this becomes a window.
A must win by Tyrone Woodley Did it does for Colby.
I just don't wanna be in that cage or anywhere near in the facility of a live mic with Covington.
If he went, man, they've been They've been chirping at each other for years on social media.
Right now, it all ends and it collides inside this cage.
I I'm looking forward to this fight.
I'm excited for it.
Who do you got? I'm uncomfortable about it.
I'm just uncomfortable about it.
Did they just I'm not gonna hide from me.
It's uncomfortable watching the press conferences today.
It was uncomfortable.
I don't like the state that the world is in.
I hate the way that it is.
Uh, it bothers me every day.
I try not to talk about politics.
I try not to do that because I know that people get easily offended about that about that topic because it's one thing or another.
So I try to stay out of it as much as possible.
But I had to say just how awkward it is right now to have this fight knowing what is going on in the world.
What about that? Just thankful that this about is happening behind closed doors and not in the general.
Do you have Sean? Where you going for even though it's uncomfortable and it makes you feel all weird inside of your gut? Who are you going? Covington, Covington, Covington, Covington, Covington's. I can't.
I can't. I can't.
You told me not to go political, but I'm not going.
I'm not going political.
But you are because you really think that really has it in his tension.
Because I just don't like Kobe Covey.
T like we If the thing that's in my head right now is like pick a side pick aside.
But yet I don't want to pick a side.
But I'm seriously that this guy could be a world champion.
His mouth and everything that he stands for goes against everything of mine and therefore I cannot pick coveting.
I will not stand beside Kobe Covington.
I'm going Cameron with the because I also view that Taiwan with Maura.
But you're saying it right there.
You're going against Covington because of your views? Yes, that's what I said.
Because my mind is telling me. Pick a side.
My mind is telling me. I do not.
But you told me to keep the political views out of it.
Because you can't.
I said I said you.
You I didn't say me.
So why do I have to keep my political views out of this? Because I'm the older brother.
I tell you, that ain't how this works. 100%.
That's how it works.
Did you not just pick Kobe coming? Because you told me not to do not to go off on my part of the political views? I win? I'm going off of what? I win.
He's gonna happen.
You're lucky running right now because I would like you See, uh, my brother doesn't.
My brother doesn't like to be hugged.
Should I hug him? If you hug being on the air, then we better get a donation.
Hey, somebody donate and give my brother a hug right now on the air.
Hit the donate button and I'll hug my brother.
Live on air right now for me getting him to pick Kobe Covey team and not saying that I had to.
Yeah, that ain't gonna happen.
Nobody's gonna side with on that one.
They should donate button.
But what is gonna happen right now with Donald Cerrone Evers? Niko Price.
That's the Don Maroni is Donald Cerrone is in a state of decline.
State of emergency? Yes.
One in four in the last five.
All suffer knockouts.
Three of the National Guard needs to be called at this point.
Yo, Stop fighting, homey.
Stop fighting. I know you love fighting.
It's in your DNA. I know it is.
I thought for a second that Donald Cerrone E would be able to kind of put his career back into motion when he had his kid right.
It looked like he was a new Donald Cerrone e.
It looked like that this guy was going to be able to finally put it together.
Shoulder shrugs, right, Destroyed by shoulder.
If there's ah worse fight for Donald Cerrone E Right now, in this moment, it's Nico is Nico because literally you're looking at the same style fighter They're gonna stand and bang and I still has more power in his chains right now.
Yeah, even though his face got messed up on it and it became a mean it doesn't matter, dude.
So he made a name of Donald Saros.
Face s That's true.
Do I look at it? I was like, Why? Why? Nico? I was like, Oh, I got it.
Go puffed up, Blowfish, But yeah, so you're looking at this is, like is like Thomas Maroney. I'm so sorry.
I genuinely think you're probably a chill dude, but this is one fight I do not seeing him going to favor.
So it's like you.
You look into the riding into the sunset, you know, Remember Jason Allen, the former defensive end who, literally for the Minnesota Vikings, got on his horse and rode off into the sunset with this with this cowboy hat? Literally.
That's what Donald Cerrone E should dio.
But when you get on a jet ski No, he's a country boy. Legitimate.
His own ranch is called the B M F ranch.
So legitimately, just take your horse, take your Budweiser and just ride off on the sunset because you're gonna go one in far instead of a nail in the coffee.
How about he shoots a deer? And that's how he announces his retirement.
You know, the Niko Price when you probably saw this fight, is probably looking down the sight and seeing a deer off in the head side.
And in his hindsight and saying, Oh, I need to put that deer out to pasture right now And lo and behold, put him down.
It was Donald Cerrone e put him down.
I'm surprised nobody's made a mean with ahead of Donald Cerrone E on a deer, often the sunset, the nickel price head shot, watch.
If that happens, it's does someone's gonna make that as me.
I'm just gonna call it now.
Fight Book If if something goes down and Niko Price knocks out Donald Cerrone E, somebody's gonna make a meme of a deer with Donald Speroni's head on it.
I'm just saying someone is going to do it.
And one of these shows, I swear to you, Sean, if I see Johnny Walker's name on it one more time, I'm going to get a bottle of Johnnie Walker for every single time I see Johnny Walker's name.
Because every single time I see Johnny Walker, I immediately think I want a rusty nail football.
I was like, All right, then we're gonna get tagged in that one.
Oh, my goodness.
Yeah, I thought Johnny Walker I was like, Hmm.
Right? Because he's gonna be rusty.
Whenever he comes back, he's gonna get Ryan Span.
That's gonna be a good fight.
I thought that Paul didn't get pulled.
I'm pretty sure there's so many fights that I swear it gets pulled and pushed around.
How many times does go over to sheriff's fight going to get cold? That guy, that guy, This fight that was supposed to happen over.
Just share a fight.
Oh, no, it's still going.
OK, see? But Glover's got pulled again for the second time.
It how many? I feel bad for Glover, though, because every single time he gets ready for a fight like note, we're pulling you.
Why cove it 19 failed.
McKinsey turns on this card again.
That should be a good fight.
Mama Darren, Really.
Mama during is gonna pull off another submission victory Rana Marcos is going to go back into wherever she was re still.
Where did you hear Mama during? From first to do cross for the sports workers owning that right now? Mama Dern.
She's not known as but Mackenzie Dern.
We will go with Mama Dern.
But, dude, Kevin Holden is on on this fight card again.
Yeah, this guy's fighting like every month.
If he if he stays healthy, this guy's literally foot.
Don't get into the Donald Cerrone e.
Has fought, what, five times in 18 months.
Like that's crazy.
Like my goodness, sometimes your body just needs toe.
Chill out and relax a little bit like I know we're in a pandemic.
I know people hate staying at home.
But, man, you gotta let your body rest just a little bit.
It is a little bit a little bit.
Please, just just just stab it.
And then when we come back from this break, we've also got none.
Other than kinda, McGregor makes the headlines again.

I know, I said Wednesday during the commercial because, yeah, I want people on Friday to nowhere on Wednesday.
Yes, tonight was a special a d a shame because we didn't do our show on Wednesday because we at, as everybody knows, we're kind of in the middle of doing something amazing and something big and stuff like that for the family.
We bought our first home.
So it's getting closer to us moving and getting that situation taking care of.
So a lot of stuff goes into that which I had no freaking idea about.
So every day. There's something.
So, um, that's why we had to just move the show from Wednesday to Friday This week, we will be back in our normal time.
Can we just move Connor McGregor into retirement? Officially retirement.
Move him from the UFC removed him from any type of famous database because, quite frankly, I am getting sick and tired of him making headlines, for one thing or another, because he made headlines over the week for ***ual allegations.
Yes, he flashed the girl like what? But it's weird because he flashed the girl.
But apparently he was in the bathroom and the girl was walking into the bathroom.
Then she go into the wrong bathroom.
Did he? Did she follow him into the bath? And then why the witness? The witness? Was he taking a leak? I don't know.
And she saw it. Oh, my God.
And then the witness is the friend of the person that is doing the allegations.
That's even sketchier.
Why is the only eyewitness that you have is her friend? That's probably the reason why, when he went into the interview with the police, he came back out of it.
It was like no charges press.
Okay? I'm good, though.
The whole thing Liars won't win.
The whole thing sounded sketchy, but this guy has had number of ***ual assault incidents in the last, like, three years that have been reported.
And he's gotten away from all of them.
And all of them have been shady in terms of what the allegations really, really one that that has stuck out to me.
Okay, when he threw the Dalai Okay, yeah, through the Dalai.
And then the one where he stole the cell phone in Las Vegas and broke it because somebody wanted to take a photo.
Other than that, everything else has fallen flat.
You know, the one the issues that have been in Ireland, you know, he even be even smacked an old guy in a bar, and that was kind of you.
And that was pushed aside like the white said is like he didn't realize.
Oh, this is what's interesting When Dana White says you have no idea how big Connor McGregor really is until you actually go out with Connor McGregor and then you find out just how big he is and how many people legitimately stop what they're doing and freak out because they see economy.
Gregor is like a rock star.
Yes, like Paul McCartney walking down the road and everybody go, Oh, my God, regardless, if you want to admit it or not.
And everybody has their opinion on the guy, he is the man that has done ah lot for the sport.
What? However, you wanna look at it Either way, Sean, his name will be always be out there.
People will always try to do something to get to extort money or whatever.
It will always be there.
Why? Because he's a celebrity.
A celebrity with enormous star star power. Yeah.
So if any time you could kind of poke the bear is going to happen And when you're in that when you're that big of a star, yeah, and you're constantly being surrounded by people by paparazzi.
Whatever it ISS you're on watch.
Basically 24 7 365 days of the year.
Somebody is going to try to get you slipping.
Yeah, or going to try toe, spend something and look like a tabloid article to get you quick.
Yeah, that's where we're at with the level I think of Connor McGregor is if he can't himself in a situation where even if he's not in a situation, but he's around a situation that could potentially turn into something.
We're gonna make it a C.
Let's make a headline and let's get let's get something going here and you know and I'm going to say that it's just unfortunate that it is because I'm not gonna be one of the guys that that says, You know what? Oh, there's no factual evidence whatsoever about any of his allegations except for the chucking of the of the Dalai, the fact that he pushed it, Old man, the fact that he broke a phone.
Those are all video evidence off everything.
Everything else has been just a lot of hearsay.
Yes, and she said, until something cases brought forth and put into a courtroom, then we'll rip it right? Absolutely.
But until something is 100% concrete, undeniable, undisputed.
This is just another, he said.
She's just because he's just more Clickbait, so people can continue to do what they need to dio.
That was somebody was just following Connor McGregor stocking Connor McGregor into into a restroom.
That's where you will.
You will never 100%.
No, but speak about Oh, my God.
Bare knuckle funding championship, Right? I think it was 11.
I told you one about that.
I wanted to really touch on real quick.
I told you Kendall Grove for Central Lumbar.
Told you that was gonna be bad.
The minute I saw Hector Lombard, I saw Hillgrove.
I looked at you and said, Well, this is over.
And you're like, What? Why? It's killed the shot.
He was, like, built for B KFC.
And he was getting inside that pocket looking like a mini Taison.
He did look like a little mini Mike Tyson.
It was like Woo and then getting that overhand right kept cracking him with the left.
You have lunching left hook.
Looks like Jeff left hook.
Lacey Lundy with that left hook David to, uh, so that was interesting, but it's like Kendall Grove need to just bow out.
And yes, it gets to my other point about the headline that I'm waiting for Bare knuckle to officially announce themselves.
But Frank Mir has signed with bare knuckle.
And I was like, Why? There's other heavyweights that are out there that I would rather see and bare knuckle than Frank Mir? And here's why.
I like Frank Mir.
I've always thought Frank Mir was a world class, uh, mixed martial art.
He was the he was he was the Brock Lester.
But yes, he was a ground guy before for a heavyweight that shouldn't be doing the things that he was doing before his his accident.
He was the best heavyweight, perhaps in the world.
And that may not be just me sugar coating.
But the Frank Mir and we've gotten for the last seven years or so has not been the Frank Mir that we've all grown accustomed to, because check this out.
I was like Frank Mir.
How does it make sense for a guy that in his last fight, he went to a decision against Roy Nelson? Okay, Roy Nelson. Roy Nelson.
That was his last victory.
Other than that, prior to that, he suffered three knockouts in one.
Let me put this in perspective in perspective as that how him being in bare knuckle doesn't make sense.
Ready for it? Go for it by book. Ready for it.
So, Frank Mir, in his last fight before Roy Nelson suffered a ti Ko loss to Harvey, Iowa, let that sink in.
The hobby he submitted toe Harvey via strikes.
If he can't take a punch at this point of his career in mixed martial arts, at what point can he take a shot in bare knuckle? If he got knocked out in the last two prior to Javi, how could he take a shot and bare knuckle? Absolutely agree with that.
He was knocked out three times a t k o and two legit knockouts.
And the before he wanted decision against Roy Nelson.
How in God's green Earth is he going to take a shot in bare knuckle against the bad guys that are in the heavyweight division? You'd almost stand a better shot that if Mark Hut was available to get Mark Hunt, that would be interested.
Have Marconi and bare knuckle that I would be interested to see watch Mark Hunt do his walk offs.
I just mere in bare knuckle just because he looks like he could be a bare knuckle fighter doesn't mean he can be a bare knuckle fighter.
Yeah, this is about this is about you.
This is about as weird as Paige Vanzant going Bare knuckle. Yes.
I look at you when I saw the Hector Lombard and I saw the Connor McGregor, I mean, not the Connor McGregor.
The Kindle grow fight.
And I looked at you, and I said, Look at this.
One looks like he's a B KFC fighter.
One looks like pretend fighter.
And lately we've been hearing hearing a lot of ah lot about that kind of acronym going around that kind of that saying that's going around is that in professional wrestling, you are a pretend wrestler.
McAfee has been labeled as a pretend wrestler.
There's fighters that are coming across that may no longer get a look in UFC and belt or Mm mm, a.
But yet they still want to hold on to some kind of hope that they could still fight.
But bare knuckle is not there.
Place and I looked at Kendall Grove and I was like, Do this guy's a fighter.
Don't get me wrong.
He was once thought highly off but he did not look like a bare knuckle fighter.
And when he kept getting cracked over and over by Hector Lombard, it's turtle he totaled.
When you look at what is going to happen to frighten near, I think along the same lines, it looks like you're a fighter.
You look like you could be the bad guy punk.
And I thought he was a fighter.
Yeah, that's a good exactly.
So now you get what I'm saying, right? Yeah, There's plenty of guys that think they are tough, but their fake tough.
It's like the guys with the muscles.
And there's some of them are fake muscles.
Yes, that's saying, goes around for for fighters to crossfit tough.
We're looking in a transitional sport right now that its fighters that are still trying to hold on to that bad brass ring trying to hold on for every hope that they have of the glory days.
But they're going into a new platform, and it's just not going to be there.
It's not sad, but it's reality.
So it's like not to take anything away from David Feldman.
David Feldman is done fun.
That guy man, he brought bare knuckle from nothing to something he's a genius in terms of finding a niche for and finding fighters that are, uh, oh are are compatible with his style.
And you mentioned Paige Vanzant.
And that's where does this is weird is this is and I've been thinking about this.
This girl is weird.
I honestly think that she might have a screw Lear's.
And I say that, Sean, because I've seen her get, like, just her Christian Mass, right? Get destroyed.
I don't know why, but I could see her not be fake tough or CrossFit tough.
I see her actually being tougher than Frank near stepping inside that same thing and willing to Crazy built inside. Yes, on.
For some reason, I think there's something just a little bit off in pages in like this girl was a dancer, a modeler social media goddess.
Yeah, she likes to get her face punched in.
I think there's something just a little bit off, like Seriously, she's like the Harley.
Queen of Emma hardly quits.
Cute. Don't get me wrong.
She's just a slight little bit of crazy.
Unfortunately, I think that's exactly where page phase and slides it.
She's just a little bit of that crazy.
I hope you're right.
But I still think she's gonna get beat up pretty bad.
We'll just get more pictures and more means of her face beat of Christian Mask.
But you know who we're gonna get More photos of in the near future is Halle Berry makes her directing debut for her movie that she went ahead and produced herself and directed called Bruised and Netflix when they saw that the International Film Festival in Toronto bottom for female, not even before the audience has got to see.
They walked in there Saturday, saw it before anybody, and they're like, 20 million. Give me it.
We what, 20 million? Nobody's going to see this picture now.
It's gonna be on Netflix.
We're gonna take it.
We'll give you 20 million to you on that.
And this film features a co star off Valentina Shevchenko.
And when I was reading about the plot storyline that she did for this, it's interesting.
It sounds like like MM, a version of Rocky will be interesting.
No doubt I cannot wait for it to show up on it.
And that was the best way I could describe it.
A version of Rocky, an underdog story of an aging fighter that is on her way out looking for that.
Next moment, if you will, it's gonna be interesting.
I think a lot of people are gonna be surprised by it because it did really well at the International Film Film Festival in Toronto.
So it's gonna be interesting, But, man, $20 million.
Right? So that's why I said Congratulations.
