Cyborg first is Colorado makes me.
Arguably the biggest fight in in female mixed martial -- history.
Isn't this -- first time that they're fighting for -- featherweight belt that you guys have come up with him.
What are your plans for female -- What we're gonna have.
If you look at our fights that we've done official challenger series.
Or the first -- we did in Tennessee on the shamrock is part.
You know -- -- we've always had female fights on and so that especially the challengers is that's gonna continue and you know towards into the year we're gonna probably host -- tournament.
4135 pound weight class and then now one -- -- -- us because we're going to be looking for the next you know the next.
-- to fight.

How they feel about women in the -- Well I think they that if you love it you know and that there are big supporters of -- right now -- -- -- I mean this fight was teed up on CBS and on showtime for us a few months.
And really where -- you know with the beneficiary.
Of some fields teeing up this -- you know so wasn't.
-- -- -- of being a beneficiary when we Dixie folded.
You were served for -- first delighted pick up those assets or did you have to fight for those assets well there -- a lot of the companies that were bidding you know and you know how real they were how you know how real was I'm not sure but you know it was a complex situation because not only do they have to meet analytic -- means they had to be.
You know showtime as serious as these as well so you know I think that that Mary on a lot of people because you you have to -- run a fight.
Company and put on big fights you know below the they're looking for and so if you just had the finances that wouldn't be enough.
You know -- sort -- -- -- heavyweight division -- ouster over -- fighting August 15 for.
Knocked out Orlovsky I think he thought you might have been up four for a title shot but what happens after this fight to Brett Rogers does he get -- the winner of this fight.
-- -- -- will fight the winner Al sort -- our current short course champion.
And down and I talked to -- manager and and basically they inform me that they they wanna fight on this card so.
We sort of you'll -- you on the next one and you can fight the winner of this fight and so that's that's the path of this.
We'll head for the Edwards speaking of heavyweights I mean frank shamrock verses are related -- frank shamrock vs T Ortiz.
Number what would be every number three -- -- Perhaps known -- never -- Pray that moving -- to moving immaterial and that was you have sees what is the biggest paper views ever was frank vs you know.
Imagine frank vs Tito on strike force Russia to applaud CBS could gut is that a possibility here my dream and it's.
This definite possibility you know Tommy Franks would like to fight Tito Tito -- a free -- right now you know having conversations with you know.
There's nothing done but you know we're hopeful and and will -- to put those two guys back into the into the occasion and Natalie that I mean you know.
Tito told me he wants -- -- Right so there's a big fights if you don't have.
Speaking to fade or could.
-- what people say that Roger Gracie is what it what are the bigger threats out there.
Who can dethrone Fyodor so you get you actually have a chance of of building a heavyweight division that would rival UFC -- and well you know it's to me it's you know I think we have a great roster -- rosters growing.
And we're gonna continue to put our efforts and take -- it healthy and and then finding new guys and that's why the challenger series is so important because you know we would -- fights they -- we're gonna have.
The ability to look -- find you know find for the new guy that we want me to continue to have to put into -- the bigger shows and you know what I feel very comfortable with a roster -- now.
All right so you got threat in Saint Louis and -- produced pretty much sold out obviously this LT HP pavilion on the fifteenth.
And my question here is how big can this sport -- we either I was at -- of -- -- hundred where.
It was a phenomenally huge should be in use yet fan expo where there was perhaps 45000 people at the expo.
And did you always say -- -- will only say we're we're just tip of the iceberg we we we just keep looking ahead looking ahead you are you insane position definitely I feel safe and I tell you I don't.
You know I come from a traditional -- -- background for the -- -- school and you know -- group and -- where you know Friday.
Verses come through vs -- either you're that once style or other stuff.
But in today's wash -- straining you know if you go to traditional -- -- like mine if you went to my instructors watch our school.
It's now he's got a cage and his school.
And he's teaching inmates -- all his senior belts and certainly is is it integrated into the culture not just.
The general population but that blew the martial arts education but educators that are -- -- -- they are.
To GM and I think they all have some form of -- and because you don't.
It's even though that the of you know.
Fighting that is so martial arts and this is derived from a martial arts culture and so you know the the grassroots of the the the much trust teachers.
No that makes more trust is important so if -- they were to become an Olympic sport is that good for your business -- I think is great and and -- -- hope that it will it will be because.
These guys are amazing athletes thing about they have to punch kick -- jujitsu -- boxing.
And we are so August 15 for huge fights HP pavilion it's going to be a showtime yes.
And if we look could you look to win -- works I work we have to you have to watch showtime find out.
