06:54

06:55

06:57

sphere uh on Mexican Independence Day

07:00

07:06

I'm not doing that fight you right here

07:08

yeah uh what did I know you gave them

07:09

bonuses but what did you make the

07:11

performances of Curtis blades and uh

07:13

Jack Dela like two guys that seem to be

07:14

down on the score cards and picked up in

07:16

more comeback wins yeah I agree look

07:18

07:19

um yeah yeah you you nailed it I don't

07:22

07:23

you just said you yeah uh we had two uh

07:26

interesting entrances with Michael Venom

07:28

pagee came out with like the cape and

07:30

The Undertaker thing he said even the

07:31

UFC kind of helped him out a bit and

07:33

then Michelle Pera got approval to do

07:36

his dance routine when he walked out so

07:38

are we going to see more of this in the

07:39

UFC I know it's not something you've

07:40

normally done in the past no so not a

07:44

fan no uh Joanne wood uh retired at uh

07:49

after the first fight what do you make

07:50

of her career in the UFC I know she

07:51

never got her title shop but she seems

07:53

to be one of these beloved figures

07:54

awesome human yes she's an awesome human

07:56

incredible fighter and uh I couldn't be

07:59

more happy for I know that um you know I

08:02

don't know how many years ago it was but

08:05

pretty recent within the last five or

08:06

something you know she went through some

08:08

hard times and some ups and downs that

08:09

that people go through and she seems

08:10

like she's in a really good place she

08:12

seems like she's really happy in her

08:14

personal life and obviously happy enough

08:16

professionally to finally call her quit

08:18

so um it could not happen to a better

08:21

human being absolutely love her and wish

08:23

her nothing but the best last one for me

08:25

uh in Saudi Arabia they've been holding

08:26

a lot of these big boxing events you

08:28

know with the pirate Technics and all

08:30

the The Glitz and glamour not something

08:31

you also do really with UFC so are we

08:33

going to see a lot of that when you do

08:35

eventually hold your fight card there so

08:38

I I think the difference is that um and

08:40

I don't know this for a fact but I'm

08:42

just assuming the the the the boxing

08:44

events that they're holding there

08:45

they're their events and and uh they run

08:48

all the production and everything else

08:50

and and they put some money into those

08:51

things man they really do um but when we

08:53

go there we'll be running the production

08:56

did you uh see the match the boxing

08:57

match last night did you talked to Eddie

08:59

after it I did not um I I mean I saw it

09:02

on I saw it on social media yeah what

09:05

did you make of that finish in the

09:07

Francis fight what do you mean what did

09:09

I make what did I make of it what you

09:11

saw like it was it was it was people are

09:13

saying it's one of the more violent

09:14

Knockouts in boxing history yeah I mean

09:18

going into the fury fight if Fury

09:21

trained for the fight and didn't show up

09:23

and you know look like he ate Tyson Fury

09:27

it's probably the way that fight would

09:28

have ended too I mean listen the crosso

09:30

you know how I feel about crossovers

09:32

into boxing and that's that's how they

09:34

end just like that Dana right here to

09:37

your left um uh Yani on Chek getting

09:41

into the UFC Hall of Fame this summer I

09:42

saw you guys got the share moment after

09:44

the announcement I guess what did you

09:45

guys say to each other and I guess what

09:47

does she mean to you and in the company

09:49

we both said Thank you to each other you

09:50

know um know she's she's incredible I

09:53

love the first time I ever ever saw Yana

09:56

09:59

and grabbed her and said come out and

10:00

watch the rest of the fight we literally

10:01

sat there all night and watched the rest

10:02

of the card together um and from that

10:05

night to tonight we become really close

10:07

10:15

retired I mean she still does so much

10:17

stuff with us and for us and she'll be

10:19

with us for the rest of her life

10:21

tonight's card um had a five round

10:23

co-main event I know you guys have done

10:24

this a few times more recently we

10:26

seeming to see it more for non-title

10:28

fights is is that something that going

10:30

forward like could it be every card that

10:32

this ends up happening eventually well

10:34

was five rounds but you know you can't

10:45

do it all the time but we'll be sitting

10:46

in the room we'll think of these fights

10:47

that is a co-main event and we're like

10:50

well let's just see if they both want

10:51

five rounds or sometimes the fighters

10:53

ask for five rounds you know they want

10:55

to go five rounds so it's sort of just

10:58

kind of kind of how we feel but I think

11:01

as fans when we have great fights like

11:03

as you look through we ran the first

11:05

promo tonight for UFC 300 so from the

11:09

first fight of the night all the way

11:11

till the main event I mean every fight

11:14

you you wouldn't mind see in five rounds

11:15

of how difficult was it to uh tonight

11:18

was the first time we saw like the bout

11:19

order as well so how difficult was that

11:21

to figure out where everybody goes like

11:23

I saw a lot of people talking about b

11:24

nickel being really high so how

11:26

challenging was that I'm not kidding you

11:28

we literally finalized it today or

11:31

yesterday last night we finalized it uh

11:34

right after the weigh-ins we started

11:36

moving a couple more things around and

11:38

then last night we said all right this

11:39

is it this is the card because we were

11:41

announcing it tonight so um if we didn't

11:43

announce it tonight we probably still be

11:45

playing with it next week it is what it

11:47

is

11:49

now here Dana over here just curious

11:54

what your thought was of just the whole

11:56

atmosphere tonight you the crowd

11:57

Channing USA channy Cheeto all different

12:00

flags from all countries it was just

12:03

what were your thoughts just being here

12:04

in that atmosphere it's incredible

12:06

brother I I mean it really kicked off

12:08

and started at the uh press conference

12:11

the press conference was insane awesome

12:13

then we roll right into the uh the the

12:17

uh WS the next day and then I I knew

12:20

tonight you know as long as somebody

12:22

these you know we got our holy

12:24

moments with some of these fights that

12:25

it was going to be Electric in that

12:26

place and it was awesome Miami is on

12:29

fire I mean I just I can't say it enough

12:31

this this City's on fire it's it's it's

12:33

such a great destination when you talk

12:36

about everything that makes a place a

12:38

destination and then is become such a

12:41

huge Sports town and now a fight town we

12:43

we came here I came here with Anderson

12:45

Silva I don't know how many years ago

12:47

and we held a a press event and

12:49

literally there was no press there and

12:51

we we've put on a couple fights the

12:53

gates weren't great but in the last 10

12:55

years this place has just

12:57

exploded and and then finally for me you

13:00

mentioned 14 million plus for the gate

13:03

yeah so is it fair to say that Miami

13:06

will get another one you'll come back

13:09

twice a year rather than once a year I

13:11

don't know I mean I'd come back next

13:12

weekend uh it's that good you know

13:16

what's crazy is

13:17

that let me let me just put it to this

13:21

way probably the biggest venue you can

13:25

do in the United

13:27

States is Madison Square Garden right

13:32

Miami is equal to Madison Square Garden

13:35

now with

13:36

numbers think wrap your head around that

13:38

and think about that 10 years ago would

13:40

have never imagined it your opinion on

13:43

roell the Spain no out it's a qan giant

13:47

two meter ha uh he was debuting tonight

13:51

here in

13:53

Miami sir I have no idea what you just

13:55

said to me Ro is a Spain who Spain yeah

13:58

yeah got a knockout tonight okay and

14:01

your opinion about the his performance

14:03

yeah Knockouts are great when you when

14:05

you when you go in and you perform at

14:08

this

14:09

level with everything that we were just

14:11

saying about this place here tonight the

14:13

energy the fans and and you pull off an

14:16

an incredible knockout it it literally

14:18

doesn't get any better than

14:20

that thank you sir they know here yeah

14:23

go ahead brother I know Chito lost but

14:25

you guys uh before the pandemic had gone

14:27

to Chile had gone to Argentina uh given

14:30

his popularity how much media there was

14:32

here for him and fans is there a chance

14:34

that the UFC visits Ecuador at one point

14:36

yeah I I mean take Cheeto out of the

14:40

equation we end up in Ecuador someday

14:42

anyway obviously
