How about yesterday. I told you I told you. It feels like this run aides say excited. Yes. Because they have to get there because it wants it was everything we hoped it would be. Again these these press conferences between Connor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather in I think they're scheduled before of them yeah the next was today I think it's I think I wanna say the next ones today Wednesday when their own as well restore escrow on tour they're going around everywhere. They're going to be better than the fight itself we said it yesterday and you get him out there at union introduced. And Jonathan was intense. It was intense and we'll get to it I felt like Floyd Mayweather made three. Critical. Strategic mistakes. Yesterday he definitely lost the press conference you agree yes underground habit that's what got McGregor does he I'm just right yet we said that before we get to how he lost. Let's talk about the suit. That he had on wall that's one on raising its one in my strategic mistake OK well then we'll get right into the strategic mistakes than. Because con Emery Gregor had on a suit that looked like a pinstripe suit blue book probably cost about 5000 dollars or imagined but more but it was not in fact the pinstripe suit it was a regular suit. With words streaming down at that said FU. And over and over and over and over again how much you think you pay for that's the how proud of 5000 via our go around there the nice and the gray suit at some fantastic words. Alarm bell on the lineup so good allowed the slogan let's anybody forget. That is why this fight is happening. Because if it was any other MMA fighter. Right home and they were just great at it in their sport than they were just done their sport. But they couldn't talk a lot of those anime guys can't itself might not like me on they'll just like they're just jug heads who can who can fight they can't talk. It has months extent of his and one will Brooke right exactly let's what they got like when Nellie Mae Diaz like slurred his words these can cost you know like most of those guys can't really talk even if however there was anything like those guys. This fight never happens the only reason it's happening is because he is the best. In the world that's selling a fight no question about it we sort of just just so much better than Claudette it exports go to the best and boxing yes but would this is best in the MMA in its. By far better than what Floyd can do and you saw. You sought. I know Floyd kept running and is now yesterday. But you could tail. He had never been in a situation where the guy is giving it to him just as much maybe even book not even may be clearly better like you do. That he knew that he was losing this yep all right and and I thought Emma go back to a more wind and it's got the clips won't play some of because it was just had that outstanding visit you guys are worked yesterday this is going on so a lot of people miss that lets us make your point. So Connors got the greats of all we love it. Always got African tracks and on looked like somebody bought at the swap meet. Okay on the third it's got on alert it's got stores as well I guess like an American flag it's got it's got the stars downsides. It's got the red tee it for you on the money team AT&T on the front. Food. 350. Million dollars now he owes some of that to IRS correct. 350 give me something better. Give me a high dollar Sergey don't have Connor welcome to this thing like C looked like a bomb scene that's that is I think that is where you might call that a mistake. Strategically. But it was done strategically. Because. Floyd Mayweather was to was saying you look like this is the most important opportunity of your life. This means nothing he Demi. I'll come up I like to do that and look a lot better I woke up and got a wears that on every free can you force an icy to all of these that was appointed the showtime guys are making their title and I'd like you're. Fantastic suit is there were say that listen like karma Gregor looks good but Floyd Mayweather decided not to Wear a suit. As a sign of disrespect by I don't take you seriously so I'm not going to dress up for the serious lot and by. It it would didn't have all applaud Scott and he's dressed down for this one. So good so that was one of your strategic mistakes that Floyd made clearly you've got two more you game and you get cut. Although I am on the Laura what he said he's in they have contracts and let me get mild left and ended and people laugh and that they're laughing at forward what do you know there's a question that entire arena was for -- Greg number two goes to your point about what Floyd o.s because in the middle this thing laugh always get more more frustrated but you -- -- tell it was clearly part of it clearly part of the point and he goes and says you know. It goes was backpack. And inside the backpack he's got a cashier's check one despite her on a million dollars and it's to show the Connor. Look man I'm a hundred million dollars fighter when they're hard to your or your beneath me right. Broke the news just came out of that you'll. Packed twenty million dollars to the IRS we have that this is more easy Markota McGregor yeah just Gillis glad we have that clip it was amazing putt because so many mistake. Yeah. Yeah now. I do we did. I couldn't hear what I do and I didn't. As part of this comment that they don't really give instead w.s still put down 20000 people. It's it's mind blown I'm absolutely honored to be here before you. Give you this great spectacle. I'm somebody. Has got to go. If you go back to. But he can't even up to you anymore. Don't know. He is. This. Isn't. What a way of telling his low headaches is live at home is little ahead. I'm gonna knock him out inside car ounce mark my words. What can I say I'm a young. Confident hopping mad that it won't be extremely. Higher Madea's I have looked very very hot but it's so I am just a rare embrace and everything. Nobody's gonna do note that nobody cat you know than a great to me I can go to I want the here. Aside the fight. He will be a gorgeous inside our balance the movement of top. Experience is he's up people. Who have shied away from him. I don't may have to. I don't mean it is limited set of all love fighting isn't it isn't limited limited set of grills. That's makes me is how will fight a quarter of a fight this isn't a true fight it is what the truth might. It wouldn't even take one round. I'm not coming out right as you come and help. They did zooming on the men's privacy goes. They have to be ten pounds 185 pounds. He never probably anybody is probably don't want people maybe once he wants to do those look no problem given the gloves yeah I'll wait ten ounces. No Mexican made deals. OK no problem. Made out horse here all right nobody I don't gamble we don't plan on wearing gloves and I game. But years so I don't give a about globes aren't that I'm just enjoying its. I don't know what does this Sam just feel so good nice lead they got they got big campaign. And kind of feeling you'll want to back home. Now I MA guys crossed over like this. There's been a few times in history where people have crossed over out Muhammad Ali fought Antonio and Oki. And in Japan many years ago or not MMA rules. He he taught I've gone that was arrested and confidence that I wasn't damn. I wasn't like this then James Toney you had a very big problem with this part of a big Mountain View that seat pretty similar to the way Floyd has. But he crossed over into our world flooded out the problem. But doesn't wanna come over and deal we did he wants me to come over his site has no problem I'll do it up. That's competence. And I mean. This is exactly what had to happen I mean it it had to be this electric because if it wasn't. The nobody would about the fight right now. You know when he says things like I don't fear him you know I don't shy away from him. You know I don't mean I have a non not I have not followed Floyd and admittedly have not followed Floyd Mayweather career. Like that now I've seen fights and know how he fights. Com but now you have this sort of suspension of disbelief because you go into it knowing that. Okay crime McGregor are boxer when he had to what he's had this fight upright the USC. He's not done well correct. Now you have in this sort of suspend disbelief like a true like Floyd doesn't seem to be taken seriously and Connors super confident and at the that's what had happened in order to sell its fight in a bit. Connor does not fearful and I wouldn't hear me either file was Connor because and we've talked about it while Florida's is the best there's ever been in boxing history. At this point in his career forty years old. His power. Questionable at best what he can do this is this. Happy and tag and tag and tag you. To the point that he's glad that so many blows yes your your heart disease get the point which he can't. He's he can not he's not a knock out gas well it is not gonna knock out Cottam McGregor so if you're Connor what are you what are you fearing. What do you fear and you got nothing to lose at this point right what prediction great because that's what people want your right he sells. Hum but I I truly believe I mean the dirt there should be no fear all kind of McGregor is far out yet you're not going to get. Perk in the sense you get knocked out in this fight. He's he can tag didn't make him look bad make it look slow. Which are not going to knocked out so there's really nothing to fear pick out McGregor why not go wall him and he was all yesterday truly no fear gotta believe they're there is and they shouldn't be. There shouldn't be. Bibby you have the other tax clip. Yet you want icon are here now Lloyd now wanna I wanna I wanna think I want the clip wave Connor McGregor. So told its Floyd Mayweather it's all up yeah and then you counted as employed or quake did you get a. We'd like to welcome the undefeated. Dwell time world champion at five different weight classes. The best ever. Proud champion not not. Good body back. Well I. I hated this and I didn't come home. Then introduced its is what do they say hard work is easy work dedication and believe and got him. I. What why do they. Why are good numbers. And there's still wise to what they want a good thing. Why as to what they want to know do was draw men to death hello Bobby kids CNN you hear him I. Well didn't his jewels our way out of Los all of the business and if you don't sit in on something you. Surely he's blessed because you. But click O workers went on. During yeah. It didn't gives you know. Right now my. Like moment. Other stories. The news. We got back okay. That back. You. Don't apply to look like. Ends. Up on. Good food tried to come back you couldn't have yeah we do. And he had a bad thing Mayweather pars. Nowadays. Does what he's had to come to the blocks that way. Gigabyte. Bigger fighter about how my night bigger fighter. Well we know it's an extra money for me. And I beat him we talk about. We talked about from the nineties. Interview well paid out. That's my paid out. Don't but you won't pull out good. Lab that will. Fully. Don't fool the public will get up and enact and governor. I'm home I'm not even as they've been almost twenty years ago I met this may find out plus ten years ago not to say but I was. 5 years ago an example and almost two years ago but I gonna have to be June. We don't we know mister Tapp well. Liked it. White flag. You could choose which way you wanna go. It's yards apart and I'm seeing it today I wanna I wanna talk about it. There's a part there and you heard right there were were workflow is doing his thing and kind of McGregor says stance from a boy and a great inning and if you listened. Not I mean it's within seconds that congress comes back and says the same thing. Dance for me but changes it from boy to sir and I'm saying a lot on Twitter today. People trying to accuse Connor racism on that when they'd even ask Floyd's father about a Mayweather senior was that racist calling your son a boy and listen. Foot four. Connors went late 20s28 years old yep right so he's I mean you could look at their way to look at there there there is no question. That the word bully. When used to describe an African American. Has always been an issue and especially if a white person saying a much like. The end the NI GG ER work in this in much the same way Oca but in this case in this case I do not believe Connor was being. Purposely racists that it was dead at that it that he was being racist. I believe that his correction up he realized what he'd sentence in and realize and it it's a small it given credit for. He realized you know that that is a term that can be looked that is a fiscally any chased it to sorry immediately he immediately change it however I say I'll bet to say. If you think race in the part of this fight if you think race is it part of what's making this the huge deal but it's going to be. You're fooling yourself because I'm telling you right now. There is a there are millions and millions. A white folks that are backup behind got a McGregor for this by one to see him not Floyd's black tail up. And it cedes this loud mouth black dude it's been run has now got all this money been accused of beating all women domestic violence and not just accused epic we found evidence out. They wanna see this white dude knocked him out white vs black if you think it's not a part of issue crazy. And it but I wanna make the point that on that boy that he thought their buys talk about the day O'Connor so racist path now but it gives you that Luke. Bits. That little bit attention that little bit of white vs black. They just feeds all into this and it just makes it. It just make a good dude it's it's a Apollo creed vs rockets its white vs black yellow does agree and now our oldest serial port deal it's just I think it's just the sort of a sub conscious. I think it's a subconscious. Attraction to the fight you know yeah I don't think it's I don't think it's a huge deal. You know I don't think it's like all the that would cause that being said there are black folks that want to seek out McGregor not Floyd Mayweather out and there are YOK there Y folks that thinker to think the carters and eighty edits a joke that this might even going on no question about it but it got the big broadly speaking. Think people inside that arena I can't even go here I don't think most people like Floyd Mayweather regardless of race. I don't think Floyd Mayweather is a very likeable athletes. Like you can respect him on a professional level you can respect him for what he's done in the boxing ring and his record in the money that he's made. But as far as like. Him much of it because what he's done off Al optional add on the ways they're right at doses says he is you know how he wants his money like there's no humility about the what you say nobody nobody. Why you say that he's not super popular word in terms of likely liking yeah. It was still just he's taken fifty million dollars all right well listen I don't know are flocking betrayed workers are being clear like Dario like watching him get in there are relying more and tall what's the movie about Howard Stern I'm if I'm blanking on private parts. Private parts got so in the end there's a scene of private parts. In this this on the dodge truly and have always believe there's a scene in private parts where they're doing like this study about his right to know people his his approval ratings or whatever. And they say you know on average people who say they like you listen for thirty minutes at a time. Why because they when your jet to say next. And they said they found out. That people who didn't know who said he did not like Howard Stern bright they listen longer to hours at a time because they're black. Because they wanna see what cars are not to say that correct so I do think that when you are you'd never wanna be middle you never wanna be if you you can't just be. Like a moderate someone like you some kind of don't really have an opinion on yet you have to be one or the other. In Floyd is so far he is so polarized. It like he's a lot era and those are a 100% I think people would still to admit I just don't think as far as his like ability goes he's not liked. By the majority of people while I would if it would -- poll right now do you like Floyd Mayweather do you root our regular dried up thinker I don't bits would be I think overwhelmingly now. I would also venture to say the crowd was clearly on Connor side in this but it was an LA and I think when you think of MMA you tend to think a little more like. West Coast you know maybe that's where I got game really not a crowd out there popularity I think to be put that press converts in my New York City it's a little more eve and then. It be in and out in LA I saw so you think your point though they were boo when the mass. Some of fluid though oh ours are also pick like I believe he was struck. But I think he came to this press covers up and there's like he's he's sipping some out of a white styrofoam cup and the Prez got another press conference I never thought of Floyd. Boy that they sell it to you say that's about audience so cling yeah I get a little something going on with his archives can have a hard time believing because he's all about the clean life. I didn't do from what we know we live exit to the most part the clean life I mean I don't know man may. Think to listen and to Conner like you know you he goes after Conor and so. You mean that the aegis is roast in you and eight price a little rattled like Al Manu he was no one's ever read or toy likeness get a track operators the. What what about you are like would you are showcasing a 100 million dollar check and then your opponent says give the kid that tax led us to strategic mistake. We. Came out that Joseph the I lightly yesterday or they like four I think a little bit and all of our strategic mistake for me forward. Or move on agree is isn't some early next segment that it was that just just let your dad now. A Mayweather senior he comes in any later on off upping fewer people have seen this but he he in erupted. Connors media scrum later on this kind of comes then does that do you last song on B two and you can barely understand and cottages. Way lays on hand and gives him the businesses like dude. Why do you even allow your dad to be around at this point because at this point it's it's become. Embarrassing like his deck and Ali talk at this point in its. For me I it was embarrassing to watch him go into that room and try to top domestic auto McGregor who's the best in the business as we've said just get killed just get murdered so. That the three story strategic mistakes the track suit. The bringing up on and mean dollar this year check when you know the Frick and IRS. What a quarter of it more than that may be and then just let your dad be around period Connor. You don't give Connor McGregor any extra ammo going into a press conference because he doesn't need any first while you can you give a talk. He's got it's it's it's bloody murder and that's what it was yesterday was murder did any part of you come away from that press conference thinking Carter has a fighting chance. Now so I mean the same day it remains a judge Amin it's elect of the site jazz that we have of of being hit by lightning. I mean he he has the power to knock him out if he can land but the Boyd is as good as it gets he's freaking 49 and always one of the best we've ever seen and he doesn't get hit. That's that's what he's great that he's not I'm not gap he's not gonna get hit by you know he's an attack you with punches and win the fight on points. Now and maybe it's a little better to win finger and it goes a little longer than we thought. But look the fight's gonna go the distance 'cause they will pull it came up and unless it it it doorway there's good distances of Connor remarks about heels is that we that is the only way. He tells us that we can do in the rain we get Floyd did say we do in the rain we do in the octagon out of Connors and guys like adults say they are going to say that you later on yeah they believe wolf Floyd later came back it's a look back and admit that I'll backtrack on stuff that I say he said like he's a he's not never gonna do emanate I want to send Floyd lose a press conference he did he lost it yesterday he got rattled he came up against the SU lost a best you lost the best notorious they lived at the height and the firewall. The press conference certainly bill moos.
