[Jared]: Salvador Garcia. What’s going on my friend? [sal]: What’s up, brother? How you [Jared]: I [sal]: doing? [Jared]: didn’t even say your name. I said, Salvador Garcia.
[sal]: It [Jared]: We [sal]: counts. [Jared]: got Salvador. Dude, how are you? How are you after a beautiful. UFC Noche. How are
[Jared]: you after [sal]: I like, [Jared]: this weekend? [sal]: I like how you switched it. UFC no chain. [Jared]: No cha UFC. [sal]: Yeah.
[Jared]: Whatever. I couldn’t hear it again. I was so over it. I was really over all of
[Jared]: it. Honestly. [sal]: Yeah it was a little corny. I think they could have done it a little more legit but
[sal]: you know whatever they threw it together last minute. [Jared]: The thing is, I just want to know why. I guess the whole time I’m just like, they
[Jared]: don’t do it for any other countries independence. Like why? [sal]: Um…
[Jared]: Why? [sal]: I mean, I guess because of like, you know, at least in boxing, Mexican,
[Jared]: Yeah, [sal]: Mexicans go deep, you know what I mean? And Canelo [Jared]: for sure. [sal]: usually fights [Jared]: For [sal]: on Independence Day. [Jared]: the scene. OK, so this is marketing. This is just marketing.
[sal]: Yeah. And I think this was the only, this is the first one in a while that he hasn’t [sal]: fought on. So I guess they wanted to take
[Jared]: You know, [sal]: the spot. [Jared]: if we, if this is what we need to do to be able to get Brennan Moreno doing commentary,
[Jared]: then that’s fine because that was the best two fight commentary I’ve ever heard. [sal]: Yeah.
[Jared]: And dude, that he can’t do that anymore.
[sal]: What do you mean? [Jared]: He can’t go back to the desk. [sal]: Why?
[Jared]: Um, because he talks too fast. [sal]: Oh, you’re being sarcastic. I got you. I got you.
[Jared]: Yeah, he talks way too fast, dude. [sal]: I thought he was fine. I think he just sounded nervous. And you know, he’s [Jared]: Hehehehe [sal]: even said it like English is not his first language.
[Jared]: Okay, don’t make me out to be the asshole. I’m just the guy trying to [sal]: I didn’t [Jared]: pay [sal]: mind. [Jared]: attention pay attention to some fights here
[sal]: I thought it was better than Dominic Cruz, so I was alright. [Jared]: No way Dom’s good Dom say Dom takes a cerebral approach
[sal]: Yeah, I [Jared]: Na, [sal]: was, [Jared]: dude. [sal]: you know, I’d rather [Jared]: Duh. [sal]: Michael Bisping, you know, your favorite. [Jared]: I would rather bizbing than Brandon Moreno.
[sal]: Wow. [Jared]: Yeah. [sal]: It’s big news, big news. Ha [Jared]: This is very big news. [sal]: ha.
[Jared]: Did you enjoy the fights? [sal]: Yeah, I thought it was a good card. I think the last, you know, the energy kind of
[sal]: dropped out on the last two. I mean, I take that back on the co-main. I think the [sal]: energy kind of dropped. The Shivchenko fight was pretty awesome. But, um.
[Jared]: That fight could have gone either way, man. The Kevin Hollen fight. It’s just because
[Jared]: you [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: want it to be something like fireworks and you want it to be everything that it has
[Jared]: potential to be. But at the same time, it’s always, there’s always that chance it’s [Jared]: just going to be a boring strategic thing.
[sal]: Or even just like a little bit definitive, like it was pretty up in the air. You could [sal]: honestly give it to either guy and have solid points.
[Jared]: Yeah, [sal]: Um, [Jared]: which is not what you want [sal]: no. [Jared]: with either one of those guys. [sal]: No, you know, but they’ll move on. I think it’s better than it’s better for at least
[sal]: Holland taking the loss to be like, you know. I didn’t get wooed by this prospect or [sal]: whatever. It was pretty competitive.
[Jared]: Right. You know, my thing is like, I want, you know, Jack to climb the ranking
[Jared]: and knock out Ian Gary, but my, my fear is Ian could beat Jack.
[sal]: Well, [Jared]: Which is like, which is really hard for me to say. [sal]: I have something written down that I guess ties into this because I wanted to bring
[sal]: up what potential hype trains are there right now that could get fraud checked in the [sal]: near future.
[Jared]: Well, [sal]: And [Jared]: I [sal]: I [Jared]: like [sal]: think, [Jared]: that. You wrote this? [sal]: yeah, hype train fraud check. [Jared]: That’s very professional.
[sal]: And I think that it could be Ian Gary versus JDM next.
[Jared]: Yeah, [sal]: I think. [Jared]: but right now based off of Jack’s last two performances, I feel like Ian could win.
[sal]: I don’t know. I don’t think so. I think that’s the, I think the boxing is pure enough [sal]: that it’ll break through because in has been clipped very frequently.
[Jared]: but he’s the striker of the future. Ha ha ha.
[sal]: I See look I kind of remember the name of this guy, but it was the The Asian dude
[sal]: he fought the [Jared]: Yeah. [sal]: one right before the he clipped him hard like [Jared]: Right, but nothing happened. He recovered [sal]: But I’m saying
[Jared]: and… [sal]: if you can get clipped from that guy Cannot can on song Who I mean no disrespect,
[sal]: you know the guy can hit hard but still I think if JDM is able to really get there
[sal]: in the range and box him up then Kevin Hollen’s hard to hit for anybody. I think Wonderboy [sal]: is the only one who’s made it look easy and that’s because it’s wonderboy. I mean that’s
[sal]: you know the kicks were the big difference. [Jared]: Um, all right. So throw out some other names here.
[sal]: Other hype training fraud checks? [Jared]: Yeah. [sal]: I think Bo’ Nickel could very well get fraud checked next fight.
[Jared]: Is that considered fraud check though? Because he’s only had four fights. [sal]: Yeah, that’s technically what it is. Like if they get matched up with anyone like
[sal]: semi good and they get destroyed or something, then. [Jared]: So you don’t think Bo-nickel is good?
[sal]: No, I think he’s good. I think he’s got good ability, but we haven’t seen against any [sal]: like decent competition. You know what I mean? He’s
[Jared]: Yeah, [sal]: he’s [Jared]: but [sal]: looked [Jared]: it’s… [sal]: good against what he’s supposed to look good at. So [Jared]: Yeah, [sal]: there’s no real
[Jared]: but now he’s knocked out a dude, and now Raul’s knocked out a dude, so it’s not [Jared]: like they just have this grappling wrestling thing going on. They got hands too.
[sal]: Yeah, but even like even
[sal]: Raul’s win over J-Parrion is more credible than like what Bonocu has done to this point.
[Jared]: I don’t know, that last guy Bo-nickel fought was pretty good, man.
[sal]: The… [Jared]: Uh… [sal]: the… the long guy. The long carry guy.
[Jared]: That’s rude. That guy’s a fighter. [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: That guy’s [sal]: But, [Jared]: a fighter. [sal]: uh, I think he could get checked next. I think Patty Pimley, I, I like Patty Pimley,
[Jared]: Oh [sal]: but [Jared]: come [sal]: I definitely [Jared]: on, [sal]: think [Jared]: he’s already [sal]: if you, [Jared]: been checked. [sal]: not technically, not like someone just went in there and just whooped him. Like he
[sal]: had a close fight with Jared. [Jared]: Yeah. But that’s Jared Gordon. [sal]: Exactly. So it’s like whatever.
[Jared]: Mm-hmm. [sal]: But um, but now they’re talking about like him, Moe Kahn on these bigger matchups.
[sal]: I think that’s somewhere where he could uh, Get hurt [Jared]: Did you hear Moekano on Believe U Me? [sal]: No.
[Jared]: Dude. [sal]: Is it good? [Jared]: Yeah, I feel a little bit like you and I started this Moekano social media train.
[Jared]: Cause like, I think we were one of his first interviews. Like, I think we were, [Jared]: I mean, cause he, at that point he didn’t even have a channel. So if you go back
[sal]: No. [Jared]: like a year ago, like he is his pre-Moekano’s channel. He wasn’t, I mean, this was right
[Jared]: after the Moekano Wants Money. He really wasn’t. I remember when we did that interview, [Jared]: because I was like looking up other Moicano interviews and then like he went on
[Jared]: aerial, but like there wasn’t like [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: a bunch of people hitting up Moicano for interviews. [sal]: Well no, he had never been that vocal before, like he had put on good
[Jared]: Dude, [sal]: fights but… [Jared]: dude, he is so vocal now. It’s awesome. [sal]: Yeah. Haha. [Jared]: It’s crazy. [sal]: His [Jared]: It’s, [sal]: Twitter’s [Jared]: it’s a [sal]: the [Jared]: literally [sal]: best.
[Jared]: dude, but he is, he was talking to Bisping and Anthony Smith and it genuinely
[Jared]: sounds like that. It’s like, it’s, it sounds like a soundboard of just like [sal]: Hahaha [Jared]: clips. Like it just sounds like he’s like hitting these clips. He’s like, my God
[Jared]: wants money. Bisping. [sal]: Hehehehehehe [Jared]: It’s just wild. Like I love it. It makes me so happy.
[sal]: He gets [Jared]: Dude. I [sal]: it. [Jared]: entered his live stream. like two weeks ago, because it was like, Oh, more kind of
[Jared]: live. I’m like, go check this out. And as soon as I entered it, he’s like, he [Jared]: literally is like subscribe motherfucker. I’m like, Oh my
[sal]: Hahaha [Jared]: God. Like he’s like calling me out. [sal]: We gotta [Jared]: Like [sal]: get [Jared]: I [sal]: him [Jared]: think. [sal]: back on again sometime.
[Jared]: Yeah. I’m a big fan of his channel though. [sal]: for sure. [Jared]: It’s, it’s, it’s good. It’s good stuff.
[sal]: Man, so what did you think of the sixth ever split draw in a championship fight this
[sal]: weekend between Alexia Grosso and [Jared]: There’s [sal]: Shevchenko? [Jared]: been six draws in title fights?
[sal]: There’s been six. I think the last one before this was, um, Figgy and Moreno. There
[sal]: was Tyre Woodley and Wonderboy. Um. BJ Penn against somebody I can’t remember their
[sal]: name. [Jared]: Dude, these things shouldn’t happen for title [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: fights. [sal]: I mean, I don’t agree with the 10-8 round, but I
[Jared]: at [sal]: do [Jared]: all. [sal]: think, I think Alexa won. I think they just, I don’t know. I think they boofed the
[sal]: scorecards on that one. [Jared]: I think both ladies fought really well.
[sal]: Yeah, it was super, super competitive. [Jared]: Yeah, I think [sal]: I [Jared]: it [sal]: just, [Jared]: was a great fight. [sal]: I just think Alexa had the more dominant moments. Um, did more damage. She dropped her.
[sal]: That was very big. [Jared]: Do you know, this is one of those fights that you listen to people that you respect
[Jared]: and who they think won the fight. [sal]: Mm. [Jared]: And it’s pretty interesting the amount of people who really think that Alexa won three
[Jared]: rounds and think that Valentina won three rounds. [sal]: Yeah, it’s very all over the place. I haven’t seen like a Like a set narrative on
[sal]: who won. [Jared]: No, but people like I would normally get my information from it’s like, you could [Jared]: be like, Oh, this person thing. Like, I mean, you get John McCarthy who thinks Alexa
[Jared]: won three rounds. You got Bisping who thinks Valentina clearly won three rounds. [Jared]: Like it’s, it [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: may be even four rounds. He said, like there’s, there’s a lot of people that are just.
[sal]: I saw that, I don’t know about four rounds. I don’t [Jared]: Right. [sal]: think you can. [Jared]: But I mean, I don’t know. I mean, she obviously did great on the ground and she,
[Jared]: and her job was really doing, doing a lot. I mean, she did a good job all around.
[Jared]: So it’s a tough one, but okay, okay. It’s a tough one until she got on the microphone.
[Jared]: And then I’m like, I really don’t want her to win. So. [sal]: Yeah, she gets salty when she loses. She’s
[Jared]: Dude, [sal]: not [Jared]: she got, [sal]: a… [Jared]: she got, she got horrible. [sal]: This is… This is ridiculous!
[Jared]: If this [sal]: See, [Jared]: wasn’t… [sal]: judges? [Jared]: Oh man. [sal]: On the [Jared]: Yeah, [sal]: Mexican [Jared]: no, she… [sal]: Independence Day!
[Jared]: That is not 10-8. [sal]: Yeah, I don’t know. [Jared]: I don’t know.
[sal]: I get the frustration because it was close, but I also think you got to do a little [sal]: more than what they’re pointing out that she did to win the
[Jared]: And, [sal]: belt back. You know what I mean? [Jared]: and right after, um, when you’re standing there with somebody who literally just went
[Jared]: through the exact same thing you went through, just [sal]: Hmm. [Jared]: have some class, go back to your locker room, watch the fight, and then gain
[sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: some perspective. You were just in there for 25 minutes. How are you going to [Jared]: be able to be like, definitively I won one, three. Like how are you,
[sal]: Yeah, [Jared]: you can’t do that. [sal]: and that didn’t look like a Shevchenko fight. Like, you know, she struggled at certain
[sal]: points way heavier than she’s ever struggled before. So it’s just, I think she was frustrated
[sal]: that she wasn’t able to dominate like she thought she would have dominated.
[Jared]: Yeah. She was thinking for total domination, get [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: her out in the first round. She was um.
[sal]: She was even saying it about the first fight, like I was winning all four rounds and [sal]: then I just made a mistake. She’s kind of in denial of what Alexa’s capable.
[Jared]: I think so too. [sal]: Which is [Jared]: But [sal]: a [Jared]: I [sal]: lot. [Jared]: think, I just think, well, these women have closed the gap on the talent. I mean,
[sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: there really is, I mean, this top four, they could all give Valentina problems. And
[Jared]: the thing is, that doesn’t take away from how good Valentina is. It’s just saying [Jared]: other people have gotten better.
[sal]: Dude, she’s a pioneer. She there’s [Jared]: Right. And she’s [sal]: she’s [Jared]: still great. [sal]: top three, top two all time women’s MMA
[Jared]: Yeah, [sal]: is Valentina. [Jared]: look at look at Tony Ferguson, also a pioneer. He’s not so great anymore. So like
[sal]: No, [Jared]: she’s. [sal]: and he didn’t have anywhere near the success unfortunately as [Jared]: Unfortunately,
[sal]: Valentina [Jared]: unfortunately, [sal]: had [Jared]: I know. I know because, because you could go back and watch Tony. versus any good
[Jared]: fight before he tripped over those wires. And it’s [sal]: Uh. [Jared]: better than every Valentina fight that’s ever happened.
[sal]: bold statement [Jared]: It is, that [sal]: but [Jared]: is a [sal]: i [Jared]: bold [sal]: agree [Jared]: statement. [sal]: i agree
[Jared]: Okay. Well, whatever, just watch Tony versus Josh Thompson. Like that’s, [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: that’s the only fight you ever need to watch for the UFC.
[sal]: Or [Jared]: Round [sal]: Tony [Jared]: two. [sal]: versus Pettis. Even that’s even right after he, he destroyed his leg. He still came
[sal]: in absolutely demolished. I don’t know. Every fight is great.
[Jared]: But there was other great fighters on this card. There was [sal]: There was. [Jared]: an amazing performance by Lupico Dinas.
[sal]: Loopy looked like a world champion. [Jared]: Yeah, she… [sal]: And I granted it was against Elise Reed. So, I mean.
[Jared]: Oh c- oh come on dude, Elise Reed is a great fighter. [sal]: she didn’t look like she knew how to fight at all.
[Jared]: Dude, no, that was the first women’s fight. [sal]: That fight also, that fight I think had all 10-8. There was one scorecard that was
[sal]: like 30-24. Yeah. [Jared]: That’s ridiculous. But, um, probably the right scorecard. Yeah, I was, uh, I was
[Jared]: bummed out [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: for the, for the, the stoppage. They’d no contest that was unfortunate.
[sal]: Um… Oh yeah, I- [Jared]: the choke. [sal]: Yes, with [Jared]: I [sal]: the, uh-
[Jared]: always get bummed out for that because nobody got their win money and it’s like [sal]: No. [Jared]: what are they gonna do? [sal]: And it [Jared]: And [sal]: makes [Jared]: you know [sal]: the [Jared]: what? [sal]: ref looking competent like everyone loses.
[Jared]: everyone loses, they, I mean, there’s no right answer in that. You don’t like restart. [Jared]: Like there’s no, there’s
[sal]: Hmm. [Jared]: nothing really that you can do. But the thing is I would hope for like, cause these
[Jared]: guys train so hard and to, to go out there and just get your show money. I would [Jared]: hope that like they’d split the money. I would hope like split the win money or give
[Jared]: them both win money. Because, [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: and, and let us know that you actually did that, like as the UFC, because they didn’t
[Jared]: do anything wrong. Neither one of those guys. [sal]: And the guy who won, I mean, that’s not fair to him. Like he’s not stopping the fight.
[sal]: He locked the choke in. Ref [Jared]: Right. [sal]: pulls him off. He thinks he just got a submission win in the first round. And now
[sal]: they’re like, no, it’s a no decision. I mean, that what a up and down of emotion.
[Jared]: Yeah. [sal]: But that’s, that’s how it goes in the fight game. You know, you can ask Jake Paul
[sal]: about it. He knows about the fight game. [Jared]: Yeah, he’s pretty good. But are you getting excited for Jake Paul’s next fight?
[sal]: No, not at all. I don’t even know what it is. I [Jared]: I [sal]: don’t think [Jared]: don’t [sal]: he’s [Jared]: know. Does [sal]: fighting. [Jared]: he have one?
[sal]: I [Jared]: Are [sal]: know [Jared]: you [sal]: his [Jared]: getting [sal]: brother’s [Jared]: excited [sal]: fighting. [Jared]: for, are you getting excited for that? [sal]: Not really. [Jared]: Are you getting excited for KSI versus Tommy Fury?
[sal]: Not at all. [Jared]: What about just John Fury doing any form of [sal]: that. [Jared]: content? What
[sal]: Yes, [Jared]: about that? [sal]: 100%. [Jared]: Are you excited [sal]: Very. [Jared]: for that? Dude. Um, one of the craziest things I’ve ever clicked on was yesterday.
[Jared]: I clicked on Aiden Ross interviewing KSI and Tommy Fury and John Fury.
[sal]: Yeah, [Jared]: in [sal]: I just I saw that happened. I haven’t seen it though [Jared]: Dude, I’m not going to lie. Like content like that, like that level of just, um, it’s
[Jared]: a train wreck, you know, it’s [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: a complete train wreck, but it’s awesome. Like it is such a beautiful train wreck that
[Jared]: they have, dude, they had, uh, Aiden did a Sean O’Malley and Alja when they were
[Jared]: fighting. [sal]: Yeah, I never got around to- did you watch it? [Jared]: Yes. [sal]: Was it [Jared]: And
[sal]: good? [Jared]: it’s so funny, man. Like that’s the thing, it’s so funny. Cause he’s like, dude, [Jared]: he literally goes, dude, [sal]: It’s a casual very much.
[Jared]: that’s why it’s so funny. Like [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: that’s why it works because it’s not this serious thing. Dude, he literally asked
[Jared]: both of them. He goes, Sean, Aljo, who do you guys think is gonna win?
[Jared]: It was awesome. Sean’s like, oh, I think I’m going to win. And he’s like, and [Jared]: you? He’s like, I think I’m going to win.
[Jared]: It’s pretty great stuff. [sal]: Speaking of young guys, [Jared]: Yeah. Ha ha. [sal]: Raul Rosas got a knockout.
[Jared]: I liked it. It worked.
[sal]: That was pretty nice. [Jared]: It was. It was nice. It ruined my parlay, but that’s fine.
[sal]: You bet against him. [Jared]: No, I didn’t bet against him. I had like an over under parlay and I really, I had [Jared]: that one over one and a half rounds,
[sal]: interesting. [Jared]: which was big mistake. [sal]: I picked him by sub first round because [Jared]: Nice.
[sal]: I thought he would have been heavy chasing you know he’s a good [Jared]: Yeah, [sal]: grappler but [Jared]: for [sal]: I was [Jared]: sure. [sal]: not expecting the hands
[Jared]: But he’s [sal]: like [Jared]: also [sal]: that. [Jared]: gone. He’s also gone to decision quite a few times. [sal]: Yeah, [Jared]: So I don’t
[sal]: but [Jared]: know. [sal]: I mean those are against other grapplers that can kind of hang with him. Like [Jared]: Right. That’s true.
[sal]: if there’s a deficiency, he’ll probably submit them, but good for him. So my question
[sal]: here is, do you think Raul Rosas Jr. can become champion before John Jones did to
[sal]: make him the youngest UFC champion of all time? [Jared]: No. [sal]: 21. Think about it. He’s 18 right now.
[Jared]: Uh-huh. [sal]: Getting wins over solid veterans. Knocking [Jared]: Who? [sal]: them out. Finishing them. Raul Rosas.
[Jared]: Who’s he [sal]: Terrence [Jared]: getting [sal]: Mitchell. [Jared]: winds… He’s a veteran? [sal]: Terrence Mitchell was on the Ultimate Fighter with Kai Carr France that season. He’s
[sal]: been around for a while. I’m just saying like he’s 18 [Jared]: Is he, [sal]: getting [Jared]: but what [sal]: real [Jared]: do you
[sal]: wins. [Jared]: mean? But you’re talking about a title. Terrence [sal]: Yes. [Jared]: Mitchell is not in the top 15. [sal]: Well, no, that’s what I’m saying. I’m saying he’s getting good wins now against veterans.
[sal]: You don’t think that three years is enough time to develop and break into the top 15 and [Jared]: Not if he [sal]: get [Jared]: doesn’t [sal]: a shot.
[Jared]: have it. Not if he doesn’t have the… I’m just saying, sure, it’s enough time, but
[Jared]: if he doesn’t have it right now, the ability to hang with those guys. I just need
[Jared]: to know right now if it’s that he’s just fighting easy talent or not. I don’t know [Jared]: that. That’s what I’m saying. [sal]: I just think it’s
[Jared]: So… [sal]: so early to discount him because he hasn’t even grown up yet. He looks way bigger coming
[sal]: into this fight than he did last fight. [Jared]: So you think before 21 he’ll be a champion?
[sal]: I think so. [Jared]: You [sal]: Or [Jared]: do. Okay. [sal]: at 21, I’m saying. [Jared]: He’s [sal]: think [Jared]: what? [sal]: so.
[Jared]: He’s 135? 145. [sal]: 135. 35 I think he’ll eventually end up moving to 45 because he does look pretty
[sal]: big [Jared]: Uh-huh. [sal]: for 35. I know it’s easier to cut when you’re younger but then you can start getting…
[sal]: Unless you’re Jose Aldo. Jose Aldo somehow reversed [Jared]: Yeah. [sal]: everything.
[Jared]: I don’t know. He seems alright. [sal]: They [Jared]: Hehehe [sal]: call him, they call him meep on online.
[Jared]: The Conway. [sal]: Cause meep meep, like the road runner from the Looney Tunes, meep [Jared]: Uh [sal]: meep. [Jared]: huh. Yeah.
[sal]: Cause of how he sounds. It’s pretty mean. [Jared]: That’s interesting. I, okay. I hear it now.
[sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: That’s that’s funny. I like that. That is what he sounds like.
[sal]: Yeah, so if you look at all the comments, it’s like, oh, meep got a knockout. [Jared]: Okay. [sal]: Meet meep won meet meep 2024 champion or something like that,
[Jared]: Yeah, [sal]: you know. [Jared]: he does have a very interesting [sal]: He does. [Jared]: sound to his voice, that’s for sure.
[sal]: But I’m rooting for him. I think, uh, I think he’s got a bright future. [Jared]: You young kids got to stick together. I like that.
[sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: You’re rooting for your own. I like it. I’m rooting for Valentina. I’m an old guy.
[Jared]: I get it. [sal]: So, uh, we were talking about Jack Daylor earlier. We
[Jared]: Mm-hmm. [sal]: mentioned him. I’ve been seeing this fight rumor circulate a lot. JDM versus Gilbert
[sal]: Burns. What do you think about that? Too early, too soon, too late. What do you
[sal]: think? [Jared]: I wish Gilbert hadn’t have taken three fights. So back to back. Because.
[sal]: What if you think the matchup specifically are just fights in general? [Jared]: Um, I just wish he hadn’t taken that below fight.
[sal]: Right. Just that [Jared]: I [sal]: one. [Jared]: wish. Yeah. Everything else was looking really good, but I wish he waited longer for
[Jared]: the below fight, even though it was, I’m sure a great payday and they saved the [Jared]: card and everything, but, [sal]: Yeah.
[Jared]: but that [sal]: I [Jared]: was, [sal]: mean, he took [Jared]: that [sal]: a [Jared]: was [sal]: chance. [Jared]: a bummer. Yeah. He, no, for sure. And that’s the thing about a chance is if it would [Jared]: have [sal]: Yeah.
[Jared]: worked out, nobody be saying anything like this, but, um, that’s a great fight. I
[Jared]: just. I think that’s too big of a jump for Jack right now.
[sal]: Got you. So having seen the Holland fight, you think the jump to Burns is so much.
[Jared]: Well, there’s a lot in between that make more sense. [sal]: So then [Jared]: I [sal]: what [Jared]: even [sal]: do you [Jared]: think… [sal]: want? You want like a JDM shop, cut fight? Is that what you’re talking about?
[Jared]: Um, [sal]: Is that what you’re proposing? [Jared]: no, I think that even like JDM Vicente Luque makes sense right now. I think JDM, uh,
[Jared]: Sean Brady makes sense right now. Um, I think JDM Ian Gary makes more sense. I think
[Jared]: JDM, uh, like Jeff Neil, um, JDM.
[sal]: Oh, I didn’t even think of that. That needs to be booked ASAP. [Jared]: Like I think these make more sense. Like the,
[sal]: Imagine the boxing in that fight. [Jared]: that’s a great fight, right? Yeah. [sal]: Yeah, [Jared]: Yeah, for sure.
[sal]: you [Jared]: I [sal]: heard [Jared]: like [sal]: it [Jared]: that. [sal]: here. Jared Harrow wants Jeff Neal versus JDM. [Jared]: Yeah. I like that fight a lot. Um, and then, cause I think Shavkat, I mean, Shavkat’s
[Jared]: already gotten through Jeff, Jeff Neal, so you can’t just skip these guys. That’s.
[Jared]: I know JDM’s on like a 17 fight win streak, but at the same time you can’t skip [Jared]: because the middle of divisions are basically in the top three without getting
[Jared]: the fights. [sal]: Okay, I got what you mean, yeah. [Jared]: Like a lot of those divisions, they’re just like, like any of those guys could be,
[Jared]: you know, look what Sean Strickland just did. He was in the middle of a division. [sal]: So with that logic, why is that too much of a jump for Jirek?
[Jared]: Because it’s disrespectful. [sal]: But what if it’s, what if it’s [Jared]: To [sal]: against [Jared]: the middle. [sal]: a person like burns who doesn’t
[Jared]: Uh-huh. [sal]: care about the rankings been very vocal. He’s like, we’re fighting and I’ll fight anyone
[sal]: anytime, any place. I mean, look, he took on number 11, Shafkat, who I think was
[sal]: not Shafkat 11, uh, Hamza, who I think was a much more terrifying prospect in De La
[sal]: Maddalena.
[Jared]: I think [sal]: You don’t [Jared]: it’s [sal]: think. [Jared]: a really good, no, I want the fight. It’d be a great fight. I just, I want a little
[Jared]: bit of a slower burn right now for [sal]: Gotcha. [Jared]: Jack.
[sal]: Jack should also take some time off. Cause [Jared]: Yeah, he’s fought a lot. [sal]: yeah, these last two months, he’s taken pretty tough fights. And it doesn’t, it hasn’t
[sal]: looked better cause of it. You know what I mean? It’s pretty [Jared]: Right. [sal]: lackluster last fight. Way [Jared]: Yeah, [sal]: more [Jared]: and he’s, [sal]: lackluster than the one before.
[Jared]: and he seems a little too relaxed right now based off [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: of like them going, like you don’t want to, okay. He’s getting wins, but he’s
[Jared]: definitely losing the excitement factor of the fans. And [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: you don’t want, like you don’t want that.
[sal]: Yeah, he’s getting a, I hate to say it, but he’s getting fraud checked. [Jared]: Well, because the thing is he doesn’t have a very exciting personality that people
[Jared]: are going to [sal]: Mm. [Jared]: be like, Oh, we love, they love him because he knocks people out in the first round.
[sal]: And what he had yeah, that’s what he had coming in was just violence, but [Jared]: Right. [sal]: that has not been there I mean, I guess just this fight because the last fight was
[sal]: very exciting [Jared]: For sure, that last [sal]: That [Jared]: fight [sal]: one [Jared]: was [sal]: was nuts [Jared]: way more testing. [sal]: Yeah, this was not nuts at all. This was pretty boring I’m surprised it was so boring
[sal]: not from JDM’s side because I can see him It looked like he would he couldn’t figure
[sal]: out Holland, but Kevin didn’t really [Jared]: Too [sal]: do much [Jared]: much. [sal]: like usually he’ll make [Jared]: Yeah. [sal]: it a little dirtier. I guess he got caught in this hole. Like I want to fight for my ranking.
[sal]: I got, you know, a wind streak. You got kind of caught up in that whole pillion and
[sal]: safe thing, I guess. [Jared]: Yeah, I don’t know. They’re both great though. I really think it was like a style
[Jared]: that was gonna create a boring fight because nobody wants to get knocked out by [Jared]: either one of those dudes. [sal]: Yeah, yeah, and at least one time each they both got tagged with a heavy shot. I’m
[sal]: sure they felt that and were like, I’m good. [Jared]: And they’re having fun in there. I mean Kevin
[sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: they were talking they were there They’re having a good time [sal]: Dude, [Jared]: The [sal]: uh… [Jared]: literally Kevin was like you want to train with me sometime?
[sal]: The, uh, Kiesa curse, it stands. [Jared]: It does. I found [sal]: Every [Jared]: that to be
[sal]: stands. [Jared]: interesting. I found that [sal]: And [Jared]: to be very interesting. [sal]: for all the people who don’t know, every single person that has beat Michael Kiesa in
[sal]: his career has gone on to lose the next fight. And Kevin [Jared]: Which [sal]: Holley [Jared]: is a [sal]: kept it alive.
[Jared]: pretty crazy curse. [sal]: That is, that sucks. [Jared]: Yeah. [sal]: Like is it even worth beating him if you’re just kind of, you know?
[Jared]: Yeah, just take the loss against a [sal]: Yeah, [Jared]: Kiesa. [sal]: just move on.
[Jared]: We got a card coming up this weekend. [sal]: Yeah, I got some, I got some nice points up in here, you know, some, uh, some talking
[sal]: points, [Jared]: What you got? [sal]: man. So this weekend we got Rafael Fazeev versus Mateusz Gamrat. Um, I want to ask this
[sal]: question because I’m looking at this fight. I’m looking at what both guys do. [Jared]: He’s [sal]: I
[Jared]: technically, [sal]: feel. [Jared]: I don’t mean to, I don’t mean to correct you, but he’s technically not a half ale.
[sal]: Rough file? [Jared]: He would have to be, he’s not Brazilian. [sal]: Oh my bad, I’m just so used to it. [Jared]: I know, but
[sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: I just, you’re casual [sal]: My [Jared]: when [sal]: bad, [Jared]: you say that. [sal]: my bad. Raphael Faziv. Um, I believe.
[Jared]: He’s like from Croatia or something crazy. [sal]: I think [Jared]: He’s [sal]: he’s… [Jared]: not from Croatia. He’s
[sal]: Isn’t [Jared]: like [sal]: he? [Jared]: Georgian. [sal]: He’s not Georgian, right? Is he? [Jared]: I think he might be. [sal]: See, let’s figure this out before we
[Jared]: Yeah. [sal]: continue talking on this man. [Jared]: I know he’s not a half aisle, that’s all I know. [sal]: Oh, he’s from Kazakhstan.
[Jared]: Yeah. Okay, I said, [sal]: They’re nice. [Jared]: okay, okay. [sal]: All [Jared]: Yeah. Yes, he much. Uh huh.
[sal]: right. So is Rafael Faziv. I mean, in my opinion is a luck to win.
[Jared]: Nice. [sal]: It’s a 100% luck to win. [Jared]: Yo, Gamrot’s so good though. What are you talking about?
[sal]: I think Gamrot is very good. I think Gamrot is scrambly. He’s kind of awkward. He’s
[sal]: got great jiu jitsu. But having watched the half-filed Dasanju fight with Fiziv and
[sal]: how he was able to stuff [Jared]: Mm-hmm. [sal]: any grappling attempt. [Jared]: Right. [sal]: I don’t think that holds up and I don’t think Fiziv… I’m
[Jared]: that [sal]: sorry, [Jared]: they can [sal]: I don’t [Jared]: strike. [sal]: think Gamrot can hang with him on the feet. [Jared]: Right. He’s gotta be a heavy favorite based off of the logic you just broke down.
[sal]: Probably and you know, he he’s his stock didn’t drop after the last fight with gaichi [Jared]: No.
[sal]: If anything it went up, I know a few people that had him winning [Jared]: Definitely. [sal]: Um Let me see the odds
[sal]: Yeah, he’s a favorite. He’s not a huge favorite, but he’s a favorite. [Jared]: like over 200.
[sal]: Minus 160. [Jared]: Oh, that’s nice. [sal]: Yeah. So, [Jared]: Based [sal]: you [Jared]: off [sal]: know. [Jared]: of you saying 100% Locke, that’s pretty good.
[sal]: Well, you know, I’m biased, I guess, or whatever. [Jared]: No, he’s one of my favorites too. [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: I’m a big fan, big fan. Cool, well, I would take him for sure. I also am very excited
[Jared]: for, this is where the Danege fight is on this card, right? [sal]: Dan Ege? I also have another Dan Ege question.
[Jared]: Yeah? [sal]: Can Dan Ege break through the gatekeeper role? You don’t think so with his power
[Jared]: No. [sal]: and his ability. Cause he showed flashes before [Jared]: Yeah. [sal]: where he’s just like a fricking afraid train, but I guess these bigger fights, they
[sal]: just kind of kind of crumbles. [Jared]: I…
[Jared]: I don’t think he’s all there enough to get to the top. [sal]: Mentally [Jared]: Yes, [sal]: or
[Jared]: yes, [sal]: interesting. [Jared]: yeah. [sal]: How so?
[Jared]: I don’t know. Come on, dude. Come on. [sal]: Come on MMA guru lay it down for me
[Jared]: I’m not the guru, dude. There is already a guru. [sal]: Get into this man’s psychology. [Jared]: No, I don’t want to do that. He’s a really, really nice guy. I just think if you’re
[Jared]: cracking into the top five, I think he’s just taking too much damage already. Yeah.
[sal]: Yeah, I mean, he’s fought a lot. [Jared]: Right. [sal]: He came off contender series, what, like 2018, 2019.
[Jared]: Yeah, but I think that plays a big part of getting into the top three of any division
[Jared]: is not having as much damage done. [sal]: So this weekend though, he’s fighting Bryce Mitchell, who’s
[Jared]: who [sal]: another [Jared]: is coming [sal]: guy [Jared]: off of [sal]: that [Jared]: a horrible [sal]: like, [Jared]: performance. [sal]: who’s coming off a horrible performance and is saying insane stuff in the media. Just
[sal]: like, [Jared]: Like, [sal]: have [Jared]: what [sal]: you seen [Jared]: do [sal]: any [Jared]: you mean? [sal]: of that? [Jared]: Any new stuff? [sal]: Dude, he was saying that,
[Jared]: New stuff, he’s always crazy. What do [sal]: dude, [Jared]: you mean? [sal]: I know, but it’s been worse lately. [Jared]: I’ll [sal]: So for- [Jared]: have you know, I usually agree with him. So what’s he saying
[sal]: Well, [Jared]: now? [sal]: the first thing that came out that wasn’t [Jared]: Yep. [sal]: like him saying anything crazy, but it was just a crazy video. He was like guys my
[sal]: ex-wife just Uh, what was it? She destroyed my fruit trees and she’s trying to kill me
[sal]: and my family She destroyed [Jared]: Okay. [sal]: all my fruit trees and she’s coming after me. She’s trying to kill my family And he’s
[sal]: just doing this on like his instagram or whatever [Jared]: Right. [sal]: He’s like I need all of the people of arkansas to protect me. This lady is coming
[sal]: for me She’s trying to kill my family and then the next video was like [Jared]: Uh-huh. [sal]: I think the day before 9-11, he goes on and he starts saying that it was a hoax
[sal]: and he started like all of that. He starts doing a whole, [Jared]: the whole that
[sal]: you [Jared]: 9-11 [sal]: know, [Jared]: was an inside job stuff. [sal]: yeah, dude [Jared]: He’s doing that [sal]: on [Jared]: on.
[sal]: a week before his fight. [Jared]: Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm [sal]: And people are just like, man, he has lost his mind.
[Jared]: has he though? [sal]: Yes. [Jared]: People can’t forget, Sal. [sal]: Maybe I don’t think he had his mind. I’m just gonna ignore
[Jared]: People can’t [sal]: this. Yeah. I [Jared]: forget. [sal]: don’t [Jared]: That’s [sal]: know. [Jared]: all I’ll say.
[sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: Stick with, [sal]: That’s for [Jared]: stick [sal]: the [Jared]: with [sal]: other [Jared]: Bryce. [sal]: podcast, bro. That’s for your.
[Jared]: Stick with Bryce. Bryce is trying to help us all out. [sal]: Yeah. Yeah, man, he’s enlightening
[Jared]: That’s [sal]: us. [Jared]: for your other, what other podcast? [sal]: I don’t know, didn’t you say that you got like demonetized like three times or something?
[Jared]: Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha [sal]: Or taken down?
[sal]: Choo-choo-choo. Or strikes. [Jared]: Uh, yeah, I got some strikes, but like that, you know, YouTube and I are good. We
[Jared]: sat down, we had a meeting. We’re [sal]: homies. [Jared]: good. Yeah. I said, I’m not Steve. We’ll do it guys. Come
[sal]: Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo [Jared]: on. Yeah. [sal]: Well, before we get too far into the card, I have another thing staying on topic
[sal]: with 55 and Fazeev and all that. We obviously have Charles Islam coming up in
[Jared]: Yes, [sal]: October. [Jared]: yes we do, on my birthday once again. [sal]: So let’s say both scenarios that are primed up after that fight, Islam wins, you’re
[sal]: doing the Valk rematch, Charles wins, you’re in this weird like do you do an Islam
[sal]: rematch, does Valk fight Charles. So essentially the top is tied up with matchups
[sal]: already. Now looking at you got like Gagey, Poirier, Fazeev, all these guys that
[sal]: are top 5. Who do you think? rightfully should get the title shot. Like do you think
[sal]: there should be more fights between those guys in the top 5 or there’s somebody already [sal]: that’s clear? [Jared]: Gage is clear.
[sal]: Gitch is completely clear. [sal]: interesting. [Jared]: Yeah, Fizzi wins this weekend, he bites poriadext.
[sal]: like that. [Jared]: Thank you. [sal]: That [Jared]: I’ve been [sal]: is a [Jared]: thinking [sal]: f**k. [Jared]: about it. [sal]: Man, you got some bangers going on today, huh? Jesus. Jeff Neal, JDM, Poirier Fazeve.
[Jared]: Yeah. So that’s what I think. And I think that if Islam beats. Charles easily and
[Jared]: doesn’t take any damage. I think that you could book him and Gage you pretty soon.
[Jared]: After that. [sal]: So you’re saying you don’t do vogue, you do Islam-Ghaji. [Jared]: You can’t, you got it, because Ilya and Volk hasn’t been booked yet. That’s going
[Jared]: to get booked [sal]: You think so? [Jared]: first. Yeah. You, they’re not going to book Islam versus Volk before Volk versus
[Jared]: Ilya. [sal]: But check this out, right? Volk just defended the 45 bow. So he doesn’t have to
[sal]: defend it again [Jared]: He said [sal]: immediately. [Jared]: he’s going to. [sal]: He said he’s doing it next. I thought he said [Jared]: Yes. [sal]: he’s calling for the Volk rematch
[Jared]: No, he said he’s [sal]: for the [Jared]: gonna, he said [sal]: Islam. [Jared]: he’s, no, he said I’m gonna beat Ilya and then fight Islam at UFC 300.
[sal]: So he’d have to fight what in December and then turn around in like March. He’s going [sal]: to [Jared]: Uh [sal]: do [Jared]: huh. [sal]: that.
[sal]: Dude I think they should hold out Volk until you go see 300 vs Islam. And then if
[sal]: it’s not Islam you fight Topuria, let Volk’s- I know he has a few injuries right [sal]: now, let him heal up a little bit. Imagine 300 VULK VS ISLAM 2?
[Jared]: Imagine Max Holloway versus Ilya Toporya to get to VULK.
[sal]: To get to Volk. [Jared]: Yes. [sal]: I think that’s more likely to happen than him just getting a shot.
[Jared]: Ilya? [sal]: Yes. [Jared]: No, I think he would get a shot right now. [sal]: It doesn’t seem like they really want to do it though. I feel like they would have
[sal]: booked it already. It seems like they’re waiting out for something. [Jared]: He’s definitely the number one contender.
[sal]: I guess. Yeah. How’s Brian Ortega doing? How close is he to coming back?
[Jared]: Um, dude, it’s so crazy because that’s still the craziest fight folks had.
[sal]: It is, it’s the toughest fight maybe other than Islam. But Islam [Jared]: Yeah. [sal]: never had him on like almost finished like that.
[Jared]: Those, [sal]: That was [Jared]: that, [sal]: fully locked in. [Jared]: dude, those fights were, that fight was nuts though.
[sal]: So say Brian Ortega, he’s been out I think over a year already. Say he’s able to
[sal]: come back by the end of the year. What stops you from doing Brian Ortega, Elia Toporia?
[Jared]: It’s a good question. It’s a really good question. What, [sal]: Because if you… [Jared]: what stops, what stops Ilya versus Yair right now?
[sal]: Exactly, like I think look I’m a top or you’re a fan. I think he can go to the top. [sal]: I think you can become champion But but a win over Josh Emmett who just got beat the
[sal]: fight before that He’s [Jared]: Right. No, I’m with you. [sal]: not [Jared]: Oh, [sal]: it’s not the [Jared]: no. [sal]: best look. You know what I mean? [Jared]: Okay. So Ilya versus Yair.
[sal]: I say book it. Book it right now. You know what? Book it on 300. Who wouldn’t want
[sal]: to watch that? [Jared]: Yeah, I would love that. [sal]: Right. [Jared]: Yeah, for sure.
[sal]: That clears up 45. I mean, at least if Toporiya wins, if Yaya wins, that’s a weird
[sal]: spot. I think if Yaya wins, then you rematch Bryan. Because that fight didn’t really
[sal]: happen. [Jared]: That’s true. I really like I like you out here a lot.
[sal]: Yeah, man, that was, that sucks that he didn’t, he didn’t pull it off. I mean, he [sal]: had moments. He definitely had Vogue like scrambling in there. You can tell that
[sal]: was it’s like, Oh shit, I gotta get this guy down and finish this cause it’s not looking [sal]: good.
[Jared]: Oh yeah? [sal]: Yeah.
[sal]: Yeah. How, who is it that says your rear? Is it, is it tail? Your rear,
[Jared]: Ha ha. [sal]: your rear Rodriguez. [Jared]: sales wild.
[sal]: Oh, chile chile. Man, well speaking of 185ers, Derek Brunson got cut from the UFC.
[sal]: He’s gone. [Jared]: I didn’t know that. [sal]: Yeah, he had a fight coming up against Roman Delizze. He pulled out and they cut him.
[sal]: And that’s [Jared]: Interesting. [sal]: the end of Brunson. [Jared]: Blonde Brunson. [sal]: What a [Jared]: Blonde. [sal]: weird career Derek Brunson had. Such a weird career.
[Jared]: Talented though. [sal]: Very, I think the man has a win. I mean, I don’t think he won really. I think that’s [sal]: one of the worst robberies ever, but he has a win over Anderson Silva.
[Jared]: Oh really? I didn’t [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: even know that. [sal]: It was at UFC 200, I think. Not, no, [Jared]: Oh, [sal]: not 200.
[Jared]: interesting. [sal]: But it was just a horrible decision. It was insane.
[sal]: But yeah, [Jared]: I did not know that. [sal]: great career ish and
[Jared]: Well, goodbye, Derek. [sal]: we’ll miss you Derek Brunson. [Jared]: There’s only room for one Derek in the UFC.
[sal]: Derrick Lewis. Yeah. [Jared]: Who’s just looking better and better every day. [sal]: Dude, I’m really hoping he can make some kind of crazy ass comeback. I still think they
[sal]: gotta rebook him and Volkov. Especially after how he looked against Ty.
[Jared]: Can’t believe Ty didn’t get his win. [sal]: Dude, Volkov looked amazing.
[Jared]: Well, the cup is just too big, it’s not [sal]: It [Jared]: fair. [sal]: was insane. Like he, I’ve never seen a beat down like that. Like it was so surgical
[sal]: at like in his home town. Like it was, it was depressing. [Jared]: Yeah.
[sal]: Um, [Jared]: Do you have any other [sal]: well, [Jared]: sweet notes? [sal]: yeah, yeah. Before we completely jumped to off of last weekend’s card, I think that
[sal]: Roman Kapilov is going to be champion of the world. [Jared]: Do you? [sal]: I think that’s the kind of prospect that he is and it’s just been very quiet up until
[sal]: now. But [Jared]: Yeah. [sal]: that was a ridiculous performance. [Jared]: Right. [sal]: Ridiculous. Granted [Jared]: What are you going to do? Two
[sal]: against [Jared]: years? [sal]: Josh Fram, so it’s not like, you know, super high level, but that was, that was brutal.
[Jared]: That’s the thing with these guys who are obviously better than their opponents right [Jared]: now.
[sal]: Mm. [Jared]: Like, I just want to see them against somebody that’s on the same caliber.
[sal]: Yeah, well, I mean, to be fair, also, this was a short notice. [Jared]: Mm-hmm. [sal]: Um, yeah, but I think, I think the fight to make right now and that he called for it
[sal]: is him against Roman Delizze. Uh, also short notice. [Jared]: the fight of the Romans.
[sal]: Fight of the Romans. [Jared]: I like that. [sal]: And then we’ll see who’s legit. Cause Roman Delizze is also, I guess, still up and
[sal]: coming. And he, you know, it got set back in the Vettori fight. [Jared]: He did, because that was a… Ugh, I really… I had him destroying Vittori in
[Jared]: my head. [sal]: Yeah, me too. I, like I do every time I underestimated how fricking brain dead Martin
[sal]: Vettori is. You just, you can’t hurt him. [Jared]: It’s [sal]: Even [Jared]: so [sal]: Jared [Jared]: annoying. [sal]: kind of near had
[Jared]: I [sal]: to [Jared]: know. [sal]: land like 300 strikes and he still just like rocked him a little [Jared]: But [sal]: bit. [Jared]: the thing is about Marvin Vittori that’s even more annoying than how he can’t get, like
[Jared]: you can’t hurt him, is how he’ll do a performance like that against Roman Delizze [Jared]: where you’re like, oh, he’s, you know, he’s not terrible. And then he’ll
[sal]: Right. [Jared]: be what he was against Jerry Cannonier. [sal]: Yeah, I mean, I think that was more Jared than it was Vittori. Like Vittori fought like
[sal]: how he usually does. [Jared]: For sure. [sal]: I just, Kenanier was on something that night. Like he
[Jared]: Ha! [sal]: hit, he hit another level. [Jared]: He has some serious crystals. [sal]: Yeah, he brought out all the crystals for that.
[Jared]: Yeah, you should have seen their the warm-up room just crystals everywhere
[sal]: Oh my goodness. But yeah, this card this weekend, I’m liking it. It’s pretty stacked
[sal]: and maybe you wanna give some [Jared]: I don’t know many [sal]: picks. [Jared]: of it. I really don’t know much of it. Okay, [sal]: Let’s do it, let’s go through them
[Jared]: I can [sal]: real [Jared]: go [sal]: quick. [Jared]: through it. Yeah. [sal]: We’ll go through the main card. [Jared]: Okay. Break it down.
[sal]: I am sad that we’re back to the apex already. [Jared]: Yes. [sal]: We had a few events that were all crowd [Jared]: I know. [sal]: but um real good card starts off with Ricardo Ramos vs Charles Jordanne. Jordanne
[sal]: banger. [Jared]: I’m a big Charles Jordan fan. [sal]: Yeah, [Jared]: So I’m going [sal]: for [Jared]: with [sal]: sure. [Jared]: him, yeah.
[sal]: Charles Jordan. That’s the pick. [Jared]: Yes, [sal]: Brian [Jared]: for [sal]: Battle [Jared]: sure. [sal]: vs. AJ Fletcher.
[Jared]: And Brian Battle has been really good lately. [sal]: Yeah, he’s like completely past my expectations coming off of tough.
[Jared]: 100%. [sal]: He’s looked amazing and he dropped down to 70 like. [Jared]: That last fight was just ridiculous in his hometown.
[sal]: Oh yeah, with um, Horiguchi? [Jared]: The [sal]: No, [Jared]: head… Yeah, [sal]: Gabe Green. [Jared]: but that
[sal]: My bad. [Jared]: head kick, it was like, [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: happened in like two seconds. [sal]: Gabe Green. [Jared]: I’m gonna go with him, even though AJ Fletcher, he’s okay, but I’m gonna go with
[Jared]: Brian Battle. [sal]: I like it. I like it. And we got Marina Rodriguez versus the karate hottie who I you
[sal]: like don’t like for some reason I don’t every [Jared]: What? [sal]: time I brought her up. You’ve been you’ve been like, I’m a show waterson
[Jared]: I don’t think I’ve ever said anything about Michelle Waterston at all. [sal]: This is an interesting one, this is a weird… Like…
[Jared]: Wait, which Rodriguez is fighting? [sal]: Marina Rodriguez. [Jared]: Okay, she’s gonna win.
[sal]: Like Marina’s in a weird spot because two fights ago she was in title talks and now [Jared]: I know, [sal]: she’s like [Jared]: I know, she’s [sal]: not [Jared]: gonna [sal]: even [Jared]: win. [sal]: close. [Jared]: This is a good fight for her.
[sal]: Alright, [Jared]: This [sal]: so we’re going marina. [Jared]: is a layup for her. It’s gotta be. Dude, [sal]: A layup. [Jared]: dude, [sal]: That could bite you in the ass.
[Jared]: Michelle Watterson is like 40 years old. [sal]: Hey bro, be nice bro.
[Jared]: She’s not listening. It’s okay. [sal]: All right, Joe. Then we got Bryce Mitchell, Dan
[Jared]: Uh-huh. [sal]: Ege. Who you got? [Jared]: Um, after the nine 11 conspiracy talk that you brought up earlier, we’re going to
[Jared]: have to go with Bryce Mitchell. [sal]: Okay cool, that’ll be a nice clip.

[Jared]: It [sal]: that’s [Jared]: is. [sal]: just how British people sound. [Jared]: No, no, no. It was because, [sal]: Like he was asking good questions, he
[Jared]: well, [sal]: was [Jared]: cause [sal]: staying [Jared]: Pierce, [sal]: quiet. [Jared]: yeah, well Pierce is very left and he knows Dana’s right. So [sal]: Yeah. [Jared]: they, you know, he definitely, a little bit of it was disingenuous. I don’t disagree.

[Jared]: what? [sal]: Your parents died. How do you feel about that?
