#550 – UFC Fight Night Pre-Show ft. Darian Weeks

Sevan Matossian (00:03):

BA I’m more live. This is not going to be the last time you hear me talk about this? Not because I love being right, but because this is, it’s just okay. It’s cuz I love being right. I want you to know something two years ago. I would be, I was, uh, very clearly, I don’t know, a hundred times till you guys wanted to throw up. I told you guys how stupid, uh, New Zealand and Australia were, are the, probably the worst two dumbest governments, uh, on planet earth, which is saying a lot. Cuz I mean, we are in a, sorry, sorry. State for governments. Although man, life is good. Isn’t it? Damn. It’s been a good summer. Whew. So many good people. But anyway, look at New Zealand in Australia, look at this. This is March of 2006 when they were doing the lockdowns. And I was like, you guys better not do that.

Sevan Matossian (00:58):

You guys better not do that. And, and I, I seriously, I probably lost 500 followers on, well that account I’ve been BA completely kicked off of Instagram for, but these fucking knuckleheads in Australia, in New Zealand thought it was a good idea to lock down. And during this whole time I’m like, you guys better stop. You guys better stop you guys better stop. I want you to look at this. Can those of you who see who understand graphs? This means that like shit’s good and people would respond to me in my DMS. You fucking idiot. Australia and New Zealand have the lowest COVID rates and lowest death rates. Dude, look over here. New Zealand and Australia, highest COVID and death rates by over 400% in the history of the pandemic.

Sevan Matossian (01:42):

It’s amazing. I did see the new CDC guidelines. We are, we are almost at an all time high for COVID spreading, uh, everywhere on the planet, but, but nowhere near what’s going on in New Zealand and Australia. And at the same time the CDC says there’s, don’t worry. Um, <laugh> don’t worry. Just go about your business. Nothing’s required. They change their guidelines. It’s done. It is amazing. I know I they’re. So they’re so angry when you, this is, this is from, uh, what this is from our world in data. I mean, what’s funny is, is I just say the stuff that’s on the CDC website and people get upset.

Sevan Matossian (02:22):

If the CDC website says that 94% of the people who died have four more comorbidities and 6%, there’s no data for that’s the same as me saying, show me one healthy person who’s died from COVID. I wanna see one cuz the CDC can’t report one. But when I say it on Instagram, I get in trouble. If when I, when I just phrase it differently, a scientist is someone who asks questions, who tries to prove their hypothesis wrong. Not someone who tries to prove it, right? How, how could anything that comes from Pfizer that they’re trying to prove, right? That their medicine works be science. When that at, at, at a, at, at its, at, at its foundation, the, the process of science is about trying to prove yourself. Wrong, takes a special person to do that. Not someone who wants to make money. You guys remember that from high school, you gotta try to prove your hypothesis wrong.

Sevan Matossian (03:19):

The point of the lockdowns, the quarantines, the masks, the injections, and all of that was, um, if it was, if it was science, we’ve gone with the, the, the, the goal was, is to reduce deaths in transmissions and the spread and, and the number of, uh, more specifically the number of people who have the cases so that didn’t overwhelm our hospitals. And so they took measures that they believe were the greatest predictive value to mitigate the stress. It would put on hospitals. And so you see that the exact opposite happened. We’re two years later and we’re at an all time high by 400% in Australia, New Zealand, which means that that wasn’t science, it didn’t offer the greatest predictive value. And once again, all you have to do is go to the CDC website and see that they said, the worst thing you can do during an outbreak is quarantine, healthy people. They did. They, so either they did the, either, they don’t know what science is or they did. They did that on purpose because we misunderstood them, thinking the goal was to help people. And the goal was to injure people. I mean, I don’t think that, but I’m sure there’s someone who does it’s it’s I can’t even get my, uh, CDC streamlines COVID 19 guidelines to help the public better protect themselves and understand their risk streamlines, streamlines. Uh, what does that word even mean?

Sevan Matossian (04:47):

It’s it’s uh, anyone, if you participated, um, in these, uh, shenanigans on any level, you, you, you, I mean, I mean, you’re not, uh, streamlined, designed to provide with a form that presents very little resistance to a flow of air or water. I think that’s just a pun, which is irony. Oh, that’s the last thing they were trying to do. Oh man. Hey, can you imagine streamlining guidelines? It’s not even, it’s not even the right use of the word.

Caleb Beaver (05:31):

Isn’t that what they should have been, what they did the entire time. Just streamlined it. Right? Everything was streamlined here. Let, let us tell you what to do. It’s streamlined. We’re gonna distribute it. Just follow the guidelines. That’s so easy to watch to read CNN.

Sevan Matossian (05:48):

I so don’t wanna destroy my family. I so don’t wanna destroy my family. But the shit that I saw family members do is crazy.

Caleb Beaver (05:56):

Oh dude, it’s absurd. Right?

Sevan Matossian (06:01):

And the hypocrisy, I have family that’s traveling. That’s that? That is traveling all over the world now. And yet they were afraid of this before. And yet they took an injection that hurt their immune system. So they’re even more vulnerable now. I, I, I,

Caleb Beaver (06:16):

Oh yeah. I have friends who were just, how stupid are

Sevan Matossian (06:19):

These people?

Caleb Beaver (06:20):

What? Oh yeah. You’re calling people names on their, on their social medias. It’s like, how stupid are you for not staying home, doing all the things. And then here they are taking vacations to Hawaii. You know, going on cruises. Yes. Like within a year. It’s like, didn’t you just say that everybody was an idiot? Like, I don’t understand what, what changed for you?

Sevan Matossian (06:43):

Hey dude, there were games, athletes wearing masks at the fucking games this week.

Caleb Beaver (06:48):

Oh no shit.

Sevan Matossian (06:51):

It’s it’s it’s it’s, it’s unreal. It’s unreal. By the way. Every, every time there’s one of those events. It’s a super spreader event, which I think is kind of cool. Hello? No

Caleb Beaver (07:01):


Sevan Matossian (07:02):

<laugh> what’s up.

Darian Weeks (07:04):

What’s up brother? Sorry for being late one, man.

Sevan Matossian (07:06):

It’s okay. It just allows me to fucking go off on how silly things are.

Darian Weeks (07:11):

Well, there you go. Lets more in tangent soon.

Sevan Matossian (07:14):

How silly the world is, dude? Uh, how are you?

Darian Weeks (07:19):

I’m doing good. How is everyone doing? Good.

Sevan Matossian (07:21):

Yeah. Life’s awesome. I’m fucking, I’m stoked. We get to do this show. It’s uh, it’s fun.

Darian Weeks (07:27):

Shaved all your facial hair off. I see.

Sevan Matossian (07:29):

I did a couple days ago. I, my, I was, uh, my mom, my mom, my, my wife bought me the, um, this is, I’m gonna say something really sexist here. That, that ball trimmer. That’s like being advertised everywhere. Manscape um, they’re on their four point. Oh, but my wife bought me the three point. Oh. Like I would never do that. Like I, I don’t dudes don’t do that. They don’t accidentally buy the wrong model, but anyway, um, she, but I’ve never used it on my balls, but I used it on my face.

Darian Weeks (07:57):

There you go. Yeah. Yeah. Or is, is it, is it a good trimmer?

Sevan Matossian (08:01):

It’s actually a great trimmer and I should be very thankful. She got it to me instead of complaining. There’s probably no difference between the three and the four.

Darian Weeks (08:09):

Probably not, but I can understand you won the four. She needs to get her shit straight.

Sevan Matossian (08:14):

Yeah. Girl, technologically, just get with the times. Although I think she run the remotes better than me for the TV. What?

Darian Weeks (08:23):

Justin had work today or something.

Sevan Matossian (08:26):

<laugh> I guess he works for the government.

Darian Weeks (08:29):


Sevan Matossian (08:30):

He texts saying sad. I’ll text him back. Yes. You are sad. We are happy. We are happy. Cause we are five.

Darian Weeks (08:48):

Wait you’re taking on your keyboard through your phone.

Sevan Matossian (08:51):

He did Dick. Uh, no, no. On my computer.

Darian Weeks (08:55):

Yeah. I’m saying, oh, that’s pretty decent.

Sevan Matossian (08:58):

Yeah, if you dude, you gotta, you don’t own a yeah. If you had a a, if you <laugh>, if you had, if you had a laptop, you can connect this thing. Um, that iMessage, you can have it on your laptop.

Darian Weeks (09:09):

That’s pretty.

Sevan Matossian (09:10):

So over here, I’m telling Justin to eat a Dick, but then I can look at you and, and be cool with you.

Darian Weeks (09:15):

Hey, that’s pretty dope. I didn’t know that you could do that. I need, might need a little, I might need to get a little laptop.

Sevan Matossian (09:22):

Yeah. I’ll send you a link to a dope one.

Darian Weeks (09:25):

Okay. For

Sevan Matossian (09:25):

Sure. Yeah. A dope one that, that I, okay. I wanna, I wanna show, I wanna show you. Oh, here it is. I wanna show you this have you. This is fucking gnarly. These are two gnarly guys. People. Uh, Dominic, if you don’t watch dominant cruise is I think he’s the first ever 135 pound champion in the UFC.

Darian Weeks (09:49):

Oh really?

Sevan Matossian (09:50):

37 years old. That’s how new this sport is. Isn’t that crazy? Crazy.

Darian Weeks (09:54):

Yeah. I didn’t know. He was the first ever. That’s pretty nuts.

Sevan Matossian (09:58):

And here he is. And this guy he’s fighting is so cool. What a trip

Darian Weeks (10:03):

Kid. Ove is a is, is a, he’s a cool guy. And he’s a, an amazing fighter. I

Sevan Matossian (10:09):

They’re both weirdos in a good way. Right? They’re odd ducks.

Darian Weeks (10:15):

Yeah. Yeah. I would. I would say Dominic. Dominic. Cruz is definitely a weirdo.

Sevan Matossian (10:21):

Okay. Uh, check, check this out. I’m gonna try to play it. Caleb. Am I gonna get in trouble for this? Do I have to play in seven, second chunks? Is that how I do it? Or

Caleb Beaver (10:30):

Is it from the UFC’s YouTube?

Sevan Matossian (10:33):

It’s um, I don’t know. Uh, ESPN MMA.

Caleb Beaver (10:41):

Mm. I would just be careful. You can. Okay. Just play without the audio. Try playing it without.

Sevan Matossian (10:46):

Oh, but it’s they say? That’s so crazy.

Caleb Beaver (10:49):

Okay. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (10:50):

Let’s just, let’s just see what happens.

Caleb Beaver (10:51):

We’ll try it.

Sevan Matossian (10:52):

Okay. Here we go.

Speaker 4 (10:57):

Nothing really have nothing to say. I’m gonna come, sorry, night. I’m gonna fight my ass off and everybody knows. I’m willing to die in there. I’m not,

Sevan Matossian (11:06):

I’m willing to die in there. I’m gonna fight my ass off. Okay. Here we go.

Speaker 4 (11:10):

This is my life I did for my family noise. I wanna be a world champion. That’s it.

Sevan Matossian (11:17):

I fight for my family. I wanna be a world champion. That’s it.

Speaker 4 (11:19):

I’m also here to be a world champion

Sevan Matossian (11:21):

Out. I’m also here to be a world champion

Speaker 4 (11:24):

Family. I’m willing to die too. So family lucky.

Sevan Matossian (11:28):

I’m willing to die too. And I’m fighting for my family too.

Darian Weeks (11:33):

Well. Yeah. I, I feel like, and I mean, Dominic cruise kind of has to win this fight. I feel like just cuz he might be at the edge of his career, you know? And this, if he can win this fight, it’ll show like he’s still in it. I mean he has some of the great, the best footwork ever. You know that little switch foot work he does. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen it, but

Sevan Matossian (11:59):

I don’t know anyone else who fights like that. No one. I don’t recognize it.

Darian Weeks (12:03):

No one else does. And it’s uh, it’s pretty, it’s out. It’s outrageous footwork really? You know what I mean? And I will say co you remember, um, oh what’s his name? Who’s the guy that beat him real bad. Cody. What? Um, got all the tattoos now. I couldn’t even remember his name.

Sevan Matossian (12:24):

Oh, uh, it’s not sand Hagen. Is it?

Darian Weeks (12:26):

No, it’s his name’s he’s a little short guy. He has all the, I mean he’s so tatted from his neck down.

Sevan Matossian (12:35):

Oh, Cody Garant

Darian Weeks (12:36):

Cody Garant he could have been, you know, somebody who moved like Dominic Cruz, um, in their fight, he was, you know, kind of simulating the same thing and looked tremendous.

Sevan Matossian (12:51):

Yeah. I remember Cody had a couple fights where he looked like he was gonna be the next great fighter.

Darian Weeks (12:56):

Yeah. And then I don’t know what happened. I don’t know if he, I think he became champion right for like

Sevan Matossian (13:05):

A second,

Darian Weeks (13:06):

A second.

Sevan Matossian (13:07):

He got, he got turned into Luke. Rockhold he? He got the spirit of Luke Rockhold in him and, and, and, and just couldn’t take a punch anymore

Darian Weeks (13:14):

Quick. Is that his next fight right there? Cody Gar.

Sevan Matossian (13:17):

I mean, look at the dude. Uh, oh yeah. It does look like he’s got a fight coming up.

Darian Weeks (13:21):

Oh, well, yeah.

Sevan Matossian (13:23):

But dude, look at the two dudes. He had to fight. Look at the Rob font and Kai, uh, Kai car France.

Darian Weeks (13:29):


Sevan Matossian (13:30):

Assassins dude.

Darian Weeks (13:32):

They both monster look at that. Lost loss, win loss, loss loss, and then dominant Cruz was the last one. He and he, he, he did pretty good in that one. He didn’t finish Dominic cruise though. I think he could’ve, but he was like playing around every time he dropped him. I think,

Sevan Matossian (13:50):

Um, dominant cruise must have must look back at that and feel horrible for losing him,

Darian Weeks (13:55):

Man. I’d say so.

Sevan Matossian (13:56):

Hey, did your fight change?

Darian Weeks (13:59):

Yeah, it did. Um,

Sevan Matossian (14:01):

What happened? You were fighting the fucking world champion kickboxer and now you’re fighting a guy named Johan Johan Lenis. Yeah.

Darian Weeks (14:08):

And I’m in Vegas now. I’m not even in

Sevan Matossian (14:10):

Paris on a crazy card dude. You’re on a crazy guard.

Darian Weeks (14:15):

I know

Sevan Matossian (14:16):

You’re on a crazy guard.

Darian Weeks (14:19):

It’s it’s pretty I’m I’m glad it worked out this way. Um, but I think what happened with that is see, this fight was gonna be the first time that um, the UFC was ever in Paris. And I think with the France, um, boxing commission.

Sevan Matossian (14:36):


Darian Weeks (14:38):

They thought he had not enough fights to an MMA to fight somebody with seven fights in MMA.

Sevan Matossian (14:46):

Oh no shit. Yeah. That’s what? No. Wow.

Darian Weeks (14:49):

Yeah. Well, uh, I mean, I don’t know that for certain, but that’s what the hearsay is. All, all my manager told me was that fight’s over the guys out of that fight. And

Sevan Matossian (15:03):

What was his name? Cedric. Something

Darian Weeks (15:05):

Cedric Dobe

Sevan Matossian (15:06):

Hey, he looks scary. He looked formidable to me. Yeah. He looks, I mean, his credentials were scary.

Darian Weeks (15:11):

Yeah. He looked, he looked good, you know? Yeah. And uh, but I mean, I don’t know. Maybe they just thought he wouldn’t have had enough wrestling experience. I don’t know. Like I said, it was the first fight that was gonna be in France and they just felt like they didn’t want to put that match up together.

Sevan Matossian (15:34):

What’s your new date?

Darian Weeks (15:37):

Um, September 10th. Just a week. A week from the original date.

Sevan Matossian (15:41):

And that’s, that’s the, uh, um, uh,

Darian Weeks (15:44):


Sevan Matossian (15:45):


Darian Weeks (15:48):

Yeah. Where Nate Diaz gets a w and me too

Sevan Matossian (15:52):

That, um, that venue’s gonna be chaos,

Darian Weeks (15:55):

Chaos. And I thought it was gonna be at the apex cuz it was in Las Vegas. Cuz most of them usually are, but it’s at the T-Mobile arena.

Sevan Matossian (16:03):

There’s yeah. It’s gonna be sold out. It’s gonna be chaos in there.

Darian Weeks (16:06):

It’s gonna be nice.

Sevan Matossian (16:07):

Yeah. It’s gonna be uh, uh, a very aggressive crowd.

Darian Weeks (16:12):

Yeah. I cannot wait. It’s gonna be, it’s gonna be fun. Um, what’s cool about this opponent while I pose a one, he actually got knocked out to that Gabe green guy, you know the same dude who fought Ian, Gary just a second ago.

Sevan Matossian (16:27):

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.

Darian Weeks (16:29):

And he got touched up way more than me. So I thought it would be, I thought this was gonna be cool. You know what I mean? I mean,

Sevan Matossian (16:35):

Yeah, that is cool.

Darian Weeks (16:36):

The Gabe green guy knocked him out and I, uh, I feel like my fight with Ian Gary went way better than his fight with Ian Gary. So it’ll be, uh, it’ll be cool to kind of see what, what this guy’s about. I mean, he’s got like, maybe he’s got a little wrestling, his striking looks off like awkward, but I mean,

Sevan Matossian (17:00):

You know, do you know, uh, did you see Brian battles talking shit about Ian Gary? Which kind of I like, I like Brian Battle.

Darian Weeks (17:07):

Yeah. He, I did see that. That was uh oh yeah. And that card. Yeah. We didn’t get to podcast. That card was crazy.

Sevan Matossian (17:15):


Darian Weeks (17:16):

Yeah. All every single one of them, every fight got finished on that

Sevan Matossian (17:20):

Card. Yeah. And that’s only the third time that’s happened in UFC history. All, all 11 fights, fucking K people got slept.

Darian Weeks (17:27):

Those motherfuckers came to bang

Sevan Matossian (17:30):


Darian Weeks (17:32):

Uh, but yeah. See that and I think that’s a good, I think that was a good call out. You know what I mean? I mean, what Brian battles on his, what fourth or third fight in the UFC he won the

Sevan Matossian (17:44):

Contender series.

Darian Weeks (17:46):

Nope. He won tough contest.

Sevan Matossian (17:48):

Oh, right, right, right, right, right,

Darian Weeks (17:50):

Right. And now I feel like, yeah. I feel like that’s a good call out

Sevan Matossian (17:55):

For sure. Yeah. It’s gonna be good. I like him. He’s wild.

Darian Weeks (17:58):

Yeah. He is. He

Sevan Matossian (18:00):

Looks, Cruz was the first champion at 135 pounds. He came from, uh, something called world extreme cage fighting.

Darian Weeks (18:08):

Yeah. W C

Sevan Matossian (18:10):

And uh, and he beat some dude named, uh, Scott Jorgenson in December 16th, 2010 man dude. 12 years ago.

Darian Weeks (18:20):


Sevan Matossian (18:22):

Uh, Cheeto on the other hand, beat fucking Rob font and, and fucking chopped Shawn O’Malley down. Like he was a bitch

Darian Weeks (18:29):

Chop shot on. And what happened with that fight? Did they give that loss to shot on Molly or, or

Sevan Matossian (18:35):


Darian Weeks (18:36):

Oh yeah. I thought they said that there was like a

Sevan Matossian (18:39):

Sean claims. It’s not a loss. He denies it’s on there. He just keeps saying I’m undefeated. But dude, he got fucking

Darian Weeks (18:44):

Chopped up. Couldn’t even stand that. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (18:48):

And Hey, I bet you, I bet you, uh, uh, Vera does that to him again, dude, if they ever meet again

Darian Weeks (18:55):

And that’s, what’s so crazy. Like, and now since he’s going against Peter, Y I mean, I don’t know, you know what I mean? Like don’t, don’t get me wrong. Like O’Malley has all the talent, but you there’s some bad motherfuckers at 1 35.

Sevan Matossian (19:10):

What do you think yawn does to him? You think yawn wins that?

Darian Weeks (19:16):

I think it looks like the same as Corey sand and fight. I think they have a good, you know, exchange for one, two rounds. But after that, I mean, I feel like Peter, Y will start putting some things together. I mean, with wrestling and you’ve never seen, you’ve never seen, uh, Sean O’Malley wrestled, you know, you’ve never seen him taken down. You never seen him defend many shots. So I mean, that’ll be a whole new new ball game, I think. But then again, I’m so disappointed that Peter Y got beat by Alman Startland I did not see that coming.

Sevan Matossian (19:48):

Um, uh Alman I, I think I can’t even ALJ. I can’t even imagine Al JMA fighting, uh, Sean, that puts it in perspective for me too. Cuz I think Al JMA would fucking take Shawn O’Malley and tie him into a fucking knot. Yes. I think he would take Sean O’Malley down and beat him to a pulp. It would be so fucking bad for Sean O’Malley and so to think, yeah, you’re right. Peter yawn. If that goes, gets into the third, fourth and fifth round, I mean he’s a superstar in those rounds and, and we, and uh, Shawn O’Malley couldn’t even put that fucking Chris Monte away and use his face. He,

Darian Weeks (20:21):

He couldn’t even put him away.

Sevan Matossian (20:22):


Darian Weeks (20:24):

And that’s uh, I mean, we’ll see how it goes. I mean, Sean O’Malley, I mean, he’s still a great athlete. I mean he’s fast he’s he hits hard for being as skinny as he is. And, but YN is like you said, he’s a superstar of the sport. I feel like E I feel like some, some things are gonna be shown to Shawn. O’Malley like, Hey buddy, this is what it’s like when you’re, when you’re not getting a handed fights. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (20:54):

But uh, can you play that clip on Instagram? Um, where we can look at Sean O’Malley’s footwork, get Dian. I, I know Darren was saying just how crazy it is. You kind, you kind of can’t even believe it. Did he? I heard he created that. Like he that’s his creation in the lab. That’s not like some, any there’s no conventional boxing. There’s no, there’s nothing. There’s no one else who does it. Do you see the link? Uh, Caleb, if not, I could pull it up to. Okay. No. Which one is it? It says a dominant cruise, innovative or weirdo. You, you hear him, you hear, uh, you know, when, um, Cormier and, uh, Rogan talk about him. They’re always like the most innovative, uh, fighter of all time.

Darian Weeks (21:39):


Sevan Matossian (21:40):


Darian Weeks (21:42):

Yeah, that, that I saw this video it’s so nasty the way he just moves away. Ugh. And he can switch dance and then switch back. That’s what’s crazy about it. Boom. I mean, you know how fast you have to be to fight like that with your hands down,

Sevan Matossian (22:06):

You think he can still do that at 37?

Darian Weeks (22:08):

We gonna fucking find out

Sevan Matossian (22:10):


Darian Weeks (22:12):

And not only that, like, he, I hope he can move like that because like you said, Cheeto, Vera is a leg kicker. Yeah. He is gonna try to bust him calves up. And if he can hit those legs early. Yeah. No, he’s not moving like that. If he can get them legs early, you know what I mean? He’s gonna be stationary.

Sevan Matossian (22:32):

Uh, Dominic Cruz has blown his knee out twice and had two, two like nine month recoveries,

Darian Weeks (22:39):

Probably from that footwork boy that looks, that looks drastic to do, to be bouncing back and forth like that it’s ends. Uh,

Sevan Matossian (22:49):

And his last fight was against Pedro. Uh Munos on December, uh, 21st. And he, and, uh, and sorry in December of 2021. And he beat Pedro, which is kind of crazy. Pedro’s legit.

Darian Weeks (23:01):

Yeah. Isn’t that the guy that just fought, uh, Shawn,

Sevan Matossian (23:05):

He pulled out, I think, right?

Darian Weeks (23:07):

No, he was in the fight, but he got poked in his

Sevan Matossian (23:10):

Oh, that’s right.

Darian Weeks (23:12):

Poked in his eye.

Sevan Matossian (23:13):

Yeah. You think that was bullshit?

Darian Weeks (23:15):

That was straight bullshit. I mean, anybody who know who’s a fighter would’ve known. I mean, if it’s like a, a straightforward, oh, I got finger in the eye. This thing like touch his eye like this, like, come on.

Sevan Matossian (23:30):

Uh, will you pull up Pedro? Munos his Instagram. That’s interesting. You say that. So, um, why do you think he did that? It was so early in the fight. You think he knew it was bad for him?

Darian Weeks (23:38):

I don’t know. Like Sean O’Malley claims that he was blocking his kicks and he could feel that dude’s shin hitting up against his shin and he was getting hurt. He feels like, but yeah. I don’t know. It was so early in the fight so early. And maybe he just felt like things were going south. I couldn’t look

Sevan Matossian (24:00):

At this. There it is. Yeah. Look

Darian Weeks (24:01):

At this. I mean, placed it’s placed on his eye watch <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (24:11):

I mean, oh God, that’s so hard to watch. Someone’s eyeball get touched like

Darian Weeks (24:15):

That, but look how flat the finger is.

Sevan Matossian (24:18):

Yeah. Yeah. There’s no fingernail. It’s not, there’s extended. Yeah. You’re

Darian Weeks (24:22):

Getting injured hardly with that. And your eye is still open. Look at that. I would’ve had immediately closed my eye if it was a bit. Come on, dude. That’s not no

Sevan Matossian (24:35):

Damn interesting. I like, like why would he do that?

Darian Weeks (24:39):

I don’t know. That’s so strange

Sevan Matossian (24:44):

In one of these, in one of these interviews, dominant, Cruz said that, that, um, those knee injuries were so depressing that he was considering ending his life.

Darian Weeks (24:52):


Sevan Matossian (24:53):

Yeah. Crazy. Right.

Darian Weeks (24:57):

That is horrible. I hate to see an athlete. Think that way, you know what I mean?

Sevan Matossian (25:03):

30, 37. Uh, Marlon is 29. You, you could say that, um, is 29 a, a prime for a fighter.

Darian Weeks (25:12):

I feel like it is. I feel like from the ages 28 to 33 34 would be a prime prime.

Sevan Matossian (25:20):

Really? That’s not old for a fighter. 33 34.

Darian Weeks (25:24):

I don’t think so. Especially not in this day and age with the technology that’s out. And I mean, I don’t feel like

Sevan Matossian (25:31):

The E the diet, the, the training.

Darian Weeks (25:33):

Yeah. The stuff that you’re able to, you’re able to do with, I mean, I know we keep going back to this, but look at your Romero, you know, global toura those people are, you know, up there in age and still fighting, you know? And when you, when you, I mean, yeah. I feel like

Sevan Matossian (25:51):

You think, think Clover stutters a little bit now, after that last fight,

Darian Weeks (25:55):

You think he does?

Sevan Matossian (25:56):

I don’t know. I wouldn’t be surprised yellow stutter. Now that fight was crazy. Are

Darian Weeks (26:09):

They running that back? I heard that the guy wants it, wants to run it back.

Sevan Matossian (26:14):

Really Prochaska the, the, the ponytail man.

Darian Weeks (26:18):

Cause he said he doesn’t feel like he beat him the way he wanted to or something

Sevan Matossian (26:23):

He’s fucking stupid. He better not get back in there with Glover.

Darian Weeks (26:26):

I know Glover was on my man

Sevan Matossian (26:29):

Glover won that fight. If there was, if there was, if it would’ve ended 15 seconds sooner

Darian Weeks (26:33):

Ended, man. If he would’ve just hailed out, he, he was, he won the fight. I mean, crazy. But, um, another fight on this San Diego card. That’s weird. Why did they move the Quinland J Jason Whit fight. Did you see, uh,

Sevan Matossian (26:55):

I’m looking, uh, Hey Jason, Whit on the show. He had to do it from a, uh, I don’t see that fight. Is it still on here? Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. To tomorrow at 1:00 PM. Jason went versus Josh Quinland yeah. Oh, Quinlan’s Quinlan’s like the only one of two dudes who’s undefeated on the card. What do you mean? Where was it? Where did they move? It?

Darian Weeks (27:17):

It was just, it was supposed to in Vegas last week on that card, on that, on that last week’s card.

Sevan Matossian (27:25):

Oh, and they moved it to here. I don’t know what happened.

Darian Weeks (27:27):


Sevan Matossian (27:28):

Well, I thought Jason was gonna quit after his last fight for some reason retire.

Darian Weeks (27:34):

No, I doubt that. I think he wants to get this bread.

Sevan Matossian (27:37):

Uh, do you train with him?

Darian Weeks (27:39):

I don’t train with him. I have train with him. He’s one of the, one of my favorite training partners to train with. Really?

Sevan Matossian (27:44):

Yeah. He’s a, he’s a tough dude. He’s cool as shit too. Yes,

Darian Weeks (27:48):

He’s cool. He’s a, yeah, he’s a real strong guy. Um, I’m excited to see his fight. I was excited to see it L last week, but

Sevan Matossian (27:58):

Look at the guy he’s fighting. He looks like he fell out of his samurai movie.

Darian Weeks (28:02):

Yeah, I know. I seen it. So this is the thing.

Sevan Matossian (28:07):

Wow. Uh, Whit looks, uh, thin there.

Darian Weeks (28:10):

Yeah, he does. Isn’t

Sevan Matossian (28:11):

He? Yeah,

Darian Weeks (28:13):

But oh yeah. This is also look, they weighed in and then they move the fight. So you drop down to one 70 and now you have to go a week and then drop down again. That would be frustrating.

Sevan Matossian (28:24):

The reason Quinland and wake got moved to next weekend, per UFC, you sought to notified UFC that a urine sample from Quinland indicated a small amount of M three metabolyte of Delo, methyl, testosterone. Uh oh.

Darian Weeks (28:43):

And, and here’s the kicker. That’s the same reason. Okay. So Quinland won his contender series is how he got into the UFC. And that’s the same reason they took that went away from him is because he had a metabolite of that as well.

Sevan Matossian (29:00):

A little juicy, juicy.

Darian Weeks (29:01):

Yeah. And so

Sevan Matossian (29:03):

How good this has just moved down a week.

Darian Weeks (29:06):

You hear me, but this is why they did it is because each city has a different rule on how much metabolite you can have in your system of something. Oh, shit. And fight. Yeah. So they were like, oh fuck it. We’ll just like Las Vegas. Doesn’t give you any space at all. The Nevada commission is like, Nope, you might be on steroids. You can’t fight.

Sevan Matossian (29:31):

But that, and that that’s what happened to John Jones. Right. He got like, just like a micro

Darian Weeks (29:36):

Dose. That’s what, that’s why they moved that car to somewhere to, I think, like Texas or something. But then they, so they moved it down to San Diego where I guess everything’s good to go. And you think, but,

Sevan Matossian (29:51):

But, but this fight. Oh, that’s where the fight is this weekend in San Diego.

Darian Weeks (29:54):

It’s yeah. On the domino cruise card. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (29:57):

Why, why is this fight in San Diego? Why and why is it starting sober?
