Welcome to fox fight game -- Mike Straka and today is a big day because it is the debut.
Of -- of -- undisputed 2009.
What a great great concept assists.
How long it take you to to conceive of it.
First we have to sit down -- -- good -- that that we -- you know -- video -- deal with.
Obviously a lot of people know when we first bought this company we're married to an old deal and and the game sucked basically -- -- -- and to get after you bomb in the video game industry you know took building -- -- to what it is today did to get into it even.
Given the talks about a new video game deal so we -- out there shopping around looking for the best partner and and ended up being TH Q these guys came in.
The programmers the guys that were starting to build the game started taking jujitsu boy -- Wrestling you know these guys really got into it they were passionate about it like we are and we knew that -- be the right partners and it's probably two years ago we started talking about doing this game and I couldn't be happier -- with the partnership and with we'll what came out of -- this game's awesome.
It's funny because you say you say that David Nowitzki had a -- fight game last -- and he's producer of the game.
And literally I was like you're gonna take over for Joe Rogan in the boot because he really knows the sport now I sit -- and what are you a fan of the -- and I wasn't solids and I sort of do in this game.
And he -- -- what he knows the key to this thing you know what I think it's -- I truly believe that this game is going to help.
You know people -- never seen the UFC never heard of the UFC.
Never even been in the UFC are going to play this game and totally get hooked and addicted to it and the other thing this is going to do when people first start watching mixed martial arts I think the hardest part for them to figure out as the ground game.
They don't understand the ground game there are -- emissions they're gonna learn all -- missions they're going to know the ground game.
Just from playing.
The video game.
All right let's talk a little bit about 1999.
Because I think that when it -- headlines about Germany.
Gaining anybody eighteen and under from your next card -- -- -- nine.
I think it's kind of like a backwards way of thinking -- what are they thinking out there.
Here's the thing -- people -- to understand is they don't understand the battle that we go through every day.
In getting this thing sanctioned it and in other states other countries.
You know that that's a hard job that that we don't just.
Put on fights in the day here's some fights and was put on a pay per view and a TV show.
We're constantly out there are battling you know in pushing forward and growing the sport of mixed martial arts we spend our money resources time energy.
Doing that in this is nothing different I mean it.
We're dealing with people who are uneducated about mixed martial arts they're afraid of it and never seen it -- -- -- Uneducated have mixed martial arts we had Bob Riley on the show.
And Bob rallies that he's innocent women in New York police tried to keep and made stands in the State of New York and I said -- have you ever been to an event he's -- he's never seen a fight ever live.
And he said Dana white this is the kind of guy we're gonna do business we've never met me that.
Now and -- is comparing like that for -- is or station casinos stolen -- grew up with.
You let's see it makes no sets.
You know I had an -- if you saw the interview but I was like well does that mean it -- Donald -- shouldn't be doing business in New York because his -- here's -- going under I understand that that whole.
Juxtaposition there right so I I don't envy your job can't.
And that the -- -- is -- going under you know station casinos within.
Every business in America is in trouble right now threat you know the world is upside down not just here all over the world.
And you know -- the for -- -- smart guys the USC has nothing to do station casinos it never happens bomb.
But as far as them don't don't count them out -- pretty smart guys they're gonna they're gonna figure it out.
You take your lumps and media you know you had in.
In my opinion -- they didn't really bring up anything new right there -- it was.
You know old.
-- stories that we've heard a million times.
How do you respond.
I mean when you go home -- -- in your way from your family.
And people say Dana way to -- -- -- to -- now how do you respond that had you had he lived with what do you did though I mean there's no doubt that.
You know a lot of the big media I'd like to portray me as you know satan or whatever it is there.
You know the thing to kill me about that that segment was.
The segment before mine.
Is about a guy from Serbia who.
Is six foot 9300 pounds and beat some 135 pound.
Within an inch of his life fractures skull in four places.
The kid had to re learn how to walk talk eat.
You know do everything all over again and they got rolling around in the bed.
In a coma make him funny noises and before my segment they put -- parental warning up.
Before my segment.
It's ridiculous that -- yes it's.
It's typical media.
You know that the manipulation I swear a lot.
Why do -- I swear a lot I no doubt and because apparently the commissioner of basketball baseball and football doesn't -- public.
In on this -- it.
You -- parental warning up perform.
And a segment on -- comes out.
Com I'll give an example that night you did that your fight can you do to go for the did you know Dana white that you see at the people who watched on TV I was telling everybody this girl.
That I want the high school with a with a high school with her husband.
And I only know how she got my number.
But she tax means that we just watched the ESPN thing on you you know.
Congratulations and -- your success.
And she said.
I mean the kids -- John -- the kids and I watch us at all really kids watch segment I mean this is what she said.
She said my nine year old daughter said he's scary.
I would be afraid to meet him but that's not -- that and she said to me she goes.
We laughed and told me a nice guy in the world didn't -- to blow your image but that's how that's how the media portrays -- All right let's go to -- C 98 this weekend.
At the MGM grand arena.
-- -- Evans has surprised me you know I've never picked were shot to win a fight.
In all the fights and I've watched I've never pick in the win and he's won every one right that I've watched he's an amazing fighter and I think that a machine it.
For all his skill and his evasiveness.
He's got to be very careful with with evidence what is your prediction on the fight.
I agree I you know there's two ways that people talk about despite.
They say it's either going to be the most boring fight UFC history because both these guys -- counter pointers and -- -- sit back and wait to counter.
I tend to think that -- when she does get coming into his own now he's starting to feel comfortable in the UF CI this is is home he just finished so could you.
He finished -- I mean he's getting more more aggressive dad when you're aggressive with were shot for shot pours -- -- -- So I honestly and truly think I think there's going to be a feeling out period because is a five round fight.
But I think it's gonna turn into -- war.
Your reaction when Rashad.
You know I don't want to be one of those guys from I am going to be one of those guys right now what was your reaction when -- -- was in a ring in the octagon.
And grant himself when force script was hit -- a cake that's nothing -- -- What we think and -- what -- do -- -- we think and I love this guy.
Not you know.
I tell these guys be themselves -- -- a little bit of that psychological warfare in on mean.
He obviously got hurt and it felt that punch or kick and that's why he did it.
But he's also doing -- gulf war script and -- -- bother me now coming after you you know it it's part of the game.
Admit who the -- a lie to tell somebody what -- -- how to -- interest rates is not what I do.
I don't I don't go -- tell his guys you should be doing this he should be doing that they're all grown men.
You know that they're going to -- in and do.
What they think that if they're doing something illegal or completely immoral or something like that that I'm gonna talk to you know but these are grown men.
Smart guys great athletes.
Who can you know fight in live their life the way they want to.
Speaking of Forrest Griffin of really big but you have to want to 11 -- -- first fight in Pennsylvania for you have C Wachovia Center is a great place to fight.
Four scripture verses Anderson seven and a lot of people will say you put this fight together because Andersen loss a lot of fans in his last two fights.
You know you saw meet the press conference when chuck Lindell came all -- for me got got pissed at me for saying asking Anderson why he wasn't finishing his of his opponents.
First what your reaction to that and secondly do you think Forrest Griffin is a guy's gonna bring a fight Anderson my reaction to what -- to -- yet to chuck get an all of her make out what.
I'm happy about it you know these guys get emotional and and you know.
I think they like to stick together and.
Do you think chuck actually -- -- fight because.
He was reacting to me asking a question I'm going -- that he watched the fight you might be right he might not.
He might not because I think if you what I -- affiliate afterwards you might have been like cool I shouldn't set it to work and -- Been around -- for a long time.
You know how he is usually really mellow really cool.
Hot -- little emotional these days you know I mean he's -- he's going through.
Wrapping up his career you know he's got a lot of stuff going on his head and I think Andy was pissed off.
That I that I had to stay there that items to lay me how he wanted to you know he was -- -- -- stuff Wesley wasn't in the best of moods -- that he snapped on yet.
Up -- that said.
Forrest Griffin -- Anderson Silva -- one -- one in Philly.
I noted that fight because I love it I want to challenge Anderson Silva you know I think that.
These cleaned out the 85 pound division every fight is too easy form.
Before script and should be -- Griffin is going to get his face he's going to fight them he's going to he's going to make Anderson come out and be the old Anderson.
Our I listen this is fox fight game on my shock -- -- talk all night but this guy but I won't because we got a lot of people wait for media get the hell out of here.
And we're gonna do that so until next time enjoy the fights.
