What about the fox fight game this is route to what to get around toward -- -- for fight game got era -- -- home body from a wealth and -- in a course in 2000 all of our regular palace here on fox Fox News -- now.
He had a fight.
A one fight deal everybody thought he's -- -- for fights.
Everybody came back from larger -- to discover that he signed.
With dream is this bad news for UFC is that there is obviously it's great he's for dream because -- -- is a huge draw.
Out in Europe house up to me it doesn't really matter I see him as being a mostly European -- I don't think that Dana -- really losing much by losing their -- cro cop.
There is some talk that maybe he was trying to.
-- his his departure up or something like that but it's really a no lose situation for Dana white simply because there -- so many other great heavyweights who were or in his division.
Not to mention Cain Velasquez who really was the standout on the USC 99 card in my opinion well -- -- don't agree a 100% okay if only because.
I think that it showed that Chicago has no ground game because I yet because Alaska's -- -- -- hook in the whole fight.
And anybody else would have -- stood right up like you try to hold -- -- were down like that without putting a book and -- that'll happen now -- lot of you set some stuff about cro cop.
That you maybe we should clear the air here you basically said -- because at a three fight losing streak.
-- took a lot of heat on the on the Forbes what would it what you want to say about that.
-- I mean.
As I mentioned I I never hope that anyone goes on any kind of losing streak I wish the best for everyone in them -- that was a mistake and I and I apologize.
The thing about this this this call -- situation is that we still don't have a resolution -- -- because America is now saying that he hasn't signed a contract yet.
Dream official telling -- -- today that you know if he decides he'll deliver case delivered Kevin I only has again said that he is going to fight in dream.
So we we still don't know for sure is he going to dream if he if he is -- fact going to dream.
And if he didn't know about the contract prior to this fight and he was on that conference call that you were on and said that this is not my last fight and you see you have my word for it.
Then yes I have lost a little bit of respect for -- cook up because he essentially did not tell the truth and it any sports fan out there -- no as with -- Carlos -- situation with according gun with the Cleveland Cavaliers went back on his word that's not a right thing that's on an ethical thing to do in sports and I was a bit of respect for a guy if he didn't know it and we -- and there's more to the -- -- -- CI.
Then we should reserve judgment at this point I think it's it's -- best to reserve judgment because no one has come out and said this is officially he's going one place to the other well -- I will I do tend to believe Kevin -- And and -- why that's why so what I said when you have a story from Kevin -- Yahoo! Sports.
And an -- and USA today backing him up -- tend to believe that over some other you know report online that's a from a less credible site.
A props to Kevin -- note Daniel chats you obviously saw the fight and did you think that the -- poke.
-- -- obviously this way but do you think that -- should've stopped called time out.
Absolutely and mean from my previous first of I don't understand how I mean I'm not by -- but.
At fun if you don't have -- -- I don't -- -- -- -- -- and mean and mean I don't see how that is how that happens and you look make me look and deliberate.
On and how if if if he's most authentic is standing there with his -- -- is that.
Why wouldn't sites not to give him five minutes or however much time they get.
To stopping and recover from that why why me why did it become a TK yeah.
Well it be in particular because the rep didn't stop the fight right and and it got what happened in for the kill a it was a bad call I essentially it it was a bad call.
Download undeniably it was the wrong call when you go back and look at the tape mighty remembering -- of the fight was that the referee was standing on the opposite side of the fighters from the -- -- thrown.
And -- the bottom line is that the sport move so fast and the -- primarily hats to protect the fighter granted you could say he should have protected Al -- -- given in the five minutes.
But he didn't go that way.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah.
I think it's a 100% -- it.
And I know it just happens it happens I mean -- -- like that there are better than living on that bulges or I haven't had.
I -- you know there are some fighters that could possibly use that to their advantage that they can get and I poking and and and have that way you and who knows -- that -- that if you're not if you're not cheating you're not try and many do you think you say that there's no Biotech and I and I.
-- -- needs to.
Well I don't know if not out there are being written clarity I edit I think the bigger issue here is should there be instant replay an -- because in a situation like that they -- looked you know it it's a monitored at the damage is only daughter I mean.
He was being he was being TK note.
But he got to do dude it's replay after guy gets these lights knocked out of -- well I mean now you -- to -- -- now recovered you know what he -- our -- because I BI and we've seen a couple bad calls lately that's -- -- -- of bad calls ray Mercer and Tim Sylvia don't take a look at this video right here behind you guys.
22 seconds and it wasn't banned one punch.
What was Tim Sylvia thinking he goes out against -- a boxers gonna try to trade blows.
Those actually nine seconds -- giving some thought of yet more credit than if anyone deserves she was its its amazing to think that getting confused what they they have a 22 knock out of -- -- with the door those 36.
You know -- evidently bell -- exactly but -- It's amazing to think that a year and a half ago Tim Sylvia was this coasted to beating anti human it's -- guerra and and winning the it's from title the UC title and he goes to affliction.
It's as big match of former UC champion against former pride champion.
Loses and 36 seconds takes a year -- rumored to be fighting Ken shamrock and and he's still very credible guys and you leave it had been in the top ten he doesn't does this.
Weighs in at 310 pounds and gets knocked out -- nine seconds.
I don't know what Monty Cox is his his agent that the promoter of this fight was thinking when is together get a fight coming up with public -- August 1 that affliction got a fight it's -- It wasn't worth it it was not where it was not -- any act of bad for Paul would tell me hopes I hope we can get another fight for will get ratified Thomas had to tell me he will he apply that is the winner of patron has -- Gilbert arrived on the ultimate chaos -- you next weekend.
Everybody says this is bad for MMA you got or is it bad for the FC heavyweight division of of years past.
Because you've got a lot -- get knocked out you've got to -- get knocked out.
Wastes it does begin to call into question the whole history I mean even you look at the greatness of someone like Randy couture -- say who really began to emerge as a celebrity.
After he was able to defeat Tim Sylvia now that begins to get called -- to.
Question we always funny idea and did a white told me yet at at the press conference at 99 he said the heavyweight division a couple of years ago was so bad they're ready -- -- To fight in heavyweight division yet I don't think -- -- question that that's.
Different so -- this this guy is -- you know -- the the UC heavyweight division limit -- to 65 he rated at 310 you have to you have to think about like -- -- like going to -- -- and -- tell -- he was a bit different -- back then and and you can get -- the -- itself.
Yes the UC heavyweight division then as opposed to now is completely different it's a lot more do right now but at the same time you know you can't you can't you can't say that the division sucks now just because guys are losing three -- your -- it.
Our got a buck thirty way to keep the struggle for another minute thirty seconds let's -- what you've seen 99 you've you know and I had some pretty good fight some -- Germany was a beauty is a beautiful -- with a beautiful place to have the fight and I just thought overall the of -- get a tremendous job any anybody agree disagree.
I enjoyed it ended the faith I really I -- BS makes it an honest I.
And Andy both said -- didn't mean act cat and actually -- means its -- -- -- was a.
But party even though.
-- Marcus Davis was little.
You know sort not a sore loser but he was still said -- want to -- I got beat by gods and and -- you know he said listen you know I was trying to get it was had a psychological warfare.
But you know these things happen.
A lot of guys raise their stock on Saturday I was really excited for this carted off than the the European cards they receive little -- online for not being as the president of the American cards.
It what it I didn't walk away saying that was the greatest -- of the year.
I sort of most of the guys that we expected to win wants it wasn't like that it was in the heat there weren't -- huge knock -- of submissions but.
Mike switch certainly raises stock immunize nine and one you have to think that he's close to getting -- -- -- title shot and again came -- I thought was great and the other thing I thought was very important was rich Franklin sort of coming back a little bit from the dead after the loss of Dan Henderson doesn't very lackluster performance and now he's he has some -- sense of life and is -- at least try to be a player -- a five.
Not only talk you mentioned earlier -- cable that's as was a standout yeah I don't automated didn't diminish his win because Chicago's not a tomato can't.
But I just thought he was and as I thought he was that it destroyed.
Congo and he did.
I I honestly didn't think he would destroy Congo because I thought Congo would be doing much better job -- keeping a distance between him and Alaska's so that he couldn't get the take down it will and that just wasn't the case every time king shot and he got what he wanted which was the take down now every time my senior wrestler -- say to myself.
How are they gonna finish it and that's who we didn't see from -- blast is in this fight was utter dominance on the ground but no way to finish the fight whether it was ground and pound whether it was a submission.
And I think that's the next evolution of Cain Velasquez for for him to work on well thank you for all the -- -- tonight it really appreciated you as.
Get a fish are gonna -- this episode of fox by let's say thanks Danny -- area Hawaii that you found don't as always until next time.
