At all right now we've got.
Frankie Edgar himself or fox biking and analysts here Herschel Walker making a strike force debut -- generally period love the show Herschel.
-- store from the underground combat league and Javier Mendez the owner of AKA in San Jose California let's start with.
The very Korea I'm sure Frankie Edgar Frankie.
You heard -- from the boss you know you're gonna fight.
BJ -- now you probably have -- -- contradict right yet -- -- out there yet since since Virginia couple days ago right right yeah I have -- -- emphatic Contra turned nightcap but you know -- from him I guess -- ago so I'm excited.
So when you're watching that fight with gray Maynard versus Nate Diaz obviously you root for Diaz because he's -- he's a greasy jujitsu person in an as you are.
And you and keep -- and -- Tammy but in the back your mind did you did you think okay -- -- loses his fight.
I get the shot against BJ -- and what was go to your Internet fight.
IEA not -- wasn't how many bad wishes you know for -- lose I'm not the kind of guy but you know I was -- and for -- and his degree -- -- you know it's enough to -- -- and whatnot so I was easier your firm and on of themselves on line.
You know I had that.
But -- court for Nate Diaz I mean obviously I'm not a judge so it you know you you from your professional up perspective what you think it of the score -- -- on the match.
-- watch that lives always different from watching on TV so from the Abu perspective plus I don't I was kind of -- corner I definitely see how he he would have taken it.
-- looked like he took more punishment you know it faith and his face but.
You know still so close go anyway.
Now you know I've I've made mention that great walks around at 208 and may or may not be in of course I -- I've never weighed premiere but do you look very small you -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm sure you know he's got a cult we've got to make the -- you know he's want to -- the day before so you know he.
He does put a lot of size -- but he looked leaned you know -- -- and appreciate.
-- Herschel Walker I mean obviously you're a fan of mixed martial arts because you are yourself a practitioner.
What what do you think frank he's chances are against BJ -- while he's got a.
Very good chance BJ -- is he's good fighter now that he's proven it over -- but.
Franken do what he's been coming on strong for the last couple of fights and he's been -- so it's going to be a very good fight.
Now Peter storm you know Frankie before he was even then you have CME he made his fight debut in the underground combat -- where.
To use your work you actually had but -- somebody new had to get he had gotten BJ Penn and I'm not.
Peter obviously it's gotta make you feel good to know that this guy got to start where you where you are today.
Absolutely he was he was good when he started and he's great now I mean I've seen the improvement I mean -- -- I followed his career.
And I mean I give them a better chance to be you know to be BJ -- the most.
What are the owners who were the owner of AKA were very lucky to have Javier -- witness and you you know you don't get much TV time every summer I'm really I'm Marty came on the show -- -- we do a lot of interviews with a lot of -- Greg Jackson's been -- nurses been John -- has been.
Sean top gains and am glad you can make it in what do you think Frankie need to do to take BJ -- out.
Well I mean let's be realistic taking -- -- could be very difficult to do that frank -- style.
What he's doing now what the last fighters in -- do is incredible.
Agencies to keep doing what he's been doing and you know.
The cards that not gonna play the way they're gonna be bit frank is gonna be these -- toughest test to -- I feel.
Have your based on this stuff.
What do you think that travel to public Gabi would have on either of these fighters Egypt and or Frankie -- mean it's it's a long flight we're -- twenty hours.
To get -- it to get used to that fit the temperature and the training in -- out there it's a whole different atmosphere how -- you train fighters to do that.
Show up early could.
I mean Natalie you know we have the fight with came Glasgow is -- -- -- -- are going forward twentieth we're gored they're taken as an early.
You know I think that's about the -- way to get ready for it.
-- -- hourly rate at Sydney Australia gets Sydney Australia sorry you had Cain Velasquez in in Cologne Germany against check Congo correct and again you same same -- same same principle there not as much but I think I think -- for -- but obviously an Austrian media -- and -- a few days earlier than that.
-- what do you do -- what what before I do that let me let me talk -- you have -- -- -- about BJ Penn.
You know it's not fair to ask what -- easy to -- BJ what is beating -- needed to be Frankie.
Well I'd be just got close the distance on frank because frankly it's really fast and elusive and outside so be just gonna -- -- -- You know that's what I -- -- is gonna do and I I believe that's going to be is implied.
Peter storm you talk about frank his improvement his boxing easing credit I mean obviously frank he's known I hate to talk about you right here but -- you gotta bear with us here for a minute.
You know we're gonna do -- you have rats here.
You know his box and has improved obviously and and -- his wrestling is tremendous it does taking down BJ Penn.
Is it easier for Frankie that it would be for other people.
I think Frankie Enders they most technical wrestler in the UFC right now I mean you can just see it and his performances.
He really just displace technique that you haven't seen from other wrestlers.
-- his hands and gotten a lot better I think where the advantage lies with Frankie is his technical wrestling.
His hands I mean -- he's gonna go in there and I know he's gonna -- -- BJ.
I am but however I do believe LBJ has more power than in the hands.
But I'm sure by the time the fight comes around frank he's going to be have improved again.
-- -- by you know tenfold.
Frankly let's say let's ask you this you can talk about this lot of people say you are small 55 that are just would he say about that.
I mean you know it's their right -- Washington a funny to see wanna find my opponents are on generally smart guy but I -- except -- this weight class.
Some of continued to try to improve on in gaining size and I'm definitely chipping away at that a little bit so.
Ugly fight time on the -- they're gonna and then have him last night.
