They love the box like it -- Mike Straka and if you guys never heard of the -- -- -- radio show rear naked choke.
You are not alone.
I'm just kidding we got the hosts here tech tech -- Joe Rizzo for rear naked choke.
Joe Joe -- dot com right that's right Joe take that -- that's been around since actually I hurt.
That you two are the sole reasons that lead -- and I felt no longer in business explain please please explain.
We were at -- last event for both.
And we're trying to figure out how many other people were at the last event for both so it's kind of like you know we we take credit for killing me I have found what we did that were like hey let's go to an early -- event and sure enough we -- know backed telling me that -- with threatening yet you we're going to go to one of your events.
So just don't go to the affliction card August 1 if you could be -- could be their last actually.
-- we're gonna we're gonna start booking that right now that we're asking them one million dollar ransom and that did not show up rights may be logged in a white flights there for free.
Into the affliction -- that's the idea of getting really good idea guys honestly you are going to chiller section the killers of all smaller promotions.
So speaking of the lead -- You guys were in Florida where you went set -- -- knocked out Kimbo Slice it was like about fifteen feet away yeah and so what -- think of the news that kimbo is going to join the ultimate fighter.
I what -- and ever talking -- my read of what bush did show here are I think.
We both do -- data gets it for free.
I mean he's gotten.
And they don't have the pay him anything meanwhile the Dixie was paying him how many hundreds of thousands of dollars and a half a million for less -- Fenton you know Dana gets in freight.
Unless and that I mean he gets -- for free.
He'll get the benefit of all the ratings because people are gonna watch you have to watch even if you have much ultimate fighter you have to watch it now because he's going to be on sixteen heavyweights all the whole -- -- -- is going to try to get into the house are all in there.
And he gets the ratings boom so any money that they can get from that.
And if kimbo goes all the way.
He gets all the ratings and all the money for that.
And then at the end if he if he wins a case -- -- in the six figure contract big deal will make five million often by that so it's a great deal once again.
Once again Dana white is ahead of everybody else you know he's he's you might not like him personally but the guy rarely makes a bad business decision.
I've been a very I've been very hard on Kimbo Slice you know all my commentary.
But I will give him respect for this because he doesn't say he doesn't have to do this is everything ABC's pregnant more money than he ever change is gonna make anyway.
But to go in there and actually going to the lion's den so to speak it on -- -- territory -- data sets a nasty stuff about kimbo as well I respect that about.
I mean you guys feel the same Laird differed.
But we had on our show yesterday we had -- Rosen she co host of us sometimes.
And one of our guest is Brad Blackburn who also co host of us you know then -- our two most frequent guests on the show.
And this subject is brought up between the two of them.
And they if they don't really like it that he's there they they really they resent the fact that somebody who.
Has not -- -- and been a fighter for eight years ten years starting -- and and then finally making their way -- to get a big payday.
You know somebody like that just burst on the scene and he's gotten all this money thrown at -- But don't don't you think though it's getting tough for the ultimate fighter casting.
For US fighters because I mean there -- near ninth season now.
If anything that we learned from the UK versus team team UK versus -- USB TUK guys were good because it was the first time you've ever had an opportunity to show their stuff.
Meanwhile we -- -- of US fighters and we're getting to the point where a right who's who who's left.
There's there's still a lot of really good fighters out there but as far as -- really got letters who have toiled for eight years.
-- you are still unknown.
-- well of course to who are out there that I mean.
I'm getting towards the respect that Joe is talking about what tower and Pratt.
The idea that if you look at kimbo he was on YouTube right any person -- -- to lead -- how many fights that he really have.
That last fight that -- that what was it and sunrise.
Florida he went a bit you know.
Was it was really like his for his second fight president and even then -- -- yet the second CBS fighting even then I was -- -- the last minute to you know it's there is controversy surrounding went up against sat and lost in like twelve seconds.
Listen you're not gonna you have to sell me on the fact that kimbo slices a -- when it comes to professional fighting.
I accident but many times I'm just saying that him stepping up doing the show it doesn't need to do I I respect for that because I don't I don't think he's going to win to show.
I don't to get a chance of winning the -- But what this does though it proves once and for all -- -- not mean he proves -- himself to everybody in the world.
If -- but he still had their doubts that he can't fight.
Those doubts will be diminish after the show or.
Or he could prove everybody brawl in at least.
Try I mean look Brock lesnar.
Is but I'm not gonna compare -- with -- obviously Broxton you know you US champion wrestler and you know he's a great athlete but he was somebody who in my opinion didn't deserve a title shot and now -- -- he's going to probably be heavyweight champ for very long time to come.
Frank Mir coming up notwithstanding.
Yet I think the best thing that ever happened to Kimbo Slice was he had.
A coach boss -- And had spots stayed with kimbo and had Kindle -- he followed -- and listen to me probably would've.
You know okay he lost to Kenseth -- -- continued.
His instruction he would've done better but you know the two went their separate ways spots is now.
You know doing well and -- -- -- really hurt them.
So -- when you say.
You think it's a good thing for kimbo it's it's like it's -- he's he's reaching out he's like he's stepping up to the plate I think he passed us.
I almost think he's forced to as well whoever wants to to have the chance to fight anywhere else.
Where else is again and go that he's not just going to be some -- -- because to Japan.
They're gonna make him fight like Bob Sapp for no Hong man -- later Jose Canseco.
Who knows that if he does this at least is a -- it all looks he belongs plating Jose Canseco.
In my opinion.
-- -- And he beat James Thompson that's a guy that's you know he's he's -- two rungs below gatekeeper but he still an MMA fighter.
You know who -- directory and a gamer -- had -- you know -- -- -- Rihanna and not gonna pretend that I don't directory.
So -- to take this wrong way but I thought that fight was stopped -- said.
And I was there an assault Gary Shaw and -- -- running around screaming stop the fight stopped the fight.
Stop the might stop the fight you know I I would want to -- -- and she's -- tonight.
Because they had a lot to lose if he lost that fight you know give -- say he was winning a fight and I watch it and I'm pretty sure he was when an effective.
And -- Brett Rogers even -- tapping out at the press conference anyway enough about him useless but strike force this weekend nick Diaz.
After you know -- -- -- would probably strike force nick yet it's got -- what's a -- they fought a month ago yeah and now they're fighting again.
Now I admire the fact that strike force is putting on good parts but you are these guys going to get -- down.
Well I think Scott Smith I'm surprised that he didn't get a medical suspension that would have kept them out for for this long where it can be became his Bengie.
Basically had about twice.
And and by Scott's own admission I think Scott said he thought he was finished like three different times in that fight.
It's that's that's a short recovery I know that Scott Smith doesn't really get far out of shape and this is like to catch weight fight it at 180 and I think Scott eventually wants to go down and and fight it -- seventy.
And for nick.
Not really having to cut that much either if if much at all and he seemed to be when he fought frank shamrock up at that -- -- more.
He looked bigger than frank who was yeah who is coming bad.
I think it from the attrition factor.
I think it's that nick is a big favorite here -- -- East and used it works strategies.
What do you think about strike force court this weekend.
I think what except for a lot ski.
Yeah I think what's happening is you have these fires -- -- that -- prime.
And they want to fight and they want to fight often in fact he wouldn't fires -- in the foul weather there.
Wherever they are they -- -- as often as possible anyone who comes up to them and offers them a chance to fight along with money they're gonna take.
Our love these guys -- on contract that they can't just go anywhere at any given a lot well.
At it but look at Scott Smith right I mean he's offered to fights now what two times -- like a month about five weeks time.
And he's not going to turn it down because of the prime he's you're looking to make an -- structure.
And -- Orlovsky again just like with -- Nelson I mean he's despite its announced like me to twelve days before.
That that favors Orlovsky and he's a tough -- to prepare for when you have a full camp -- -- You know twelve days well -- -- is no slouch you know he's a good fighter and I think there -- -- he's taken seriously he says he's taken seriously.
So we'll see what happens -- -- your show real fast.
Well this show originally started way back in December 2000 -- it started we called the Rancho it was more like Howard Stern like.
And literally we walked into a RadioShack or like how to do part of the -- but as -- -- turn your computer on and just start talking.
We get fighters -- and we get them loosened up right away and they say stuff on our show that they wouldn't normally say elsewhere they -- make them feel like if there on the phone.
That they're just having a phone conversation with a friend or two and -- loosen up and and that tells stuff that's right and we if you want it if you want to see some in this Georgia Tech dot com you got it listen to the what would you run out and Terrell -- -- That does it for this edition of fox like game until next time I'm Mike Straka two -- -- fights.
