#584 – Live Call In Show

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

It’s called a, um, bam. We’re live, it’s called an assassin beetle and it has its prob BICU out into that other beetle and it’s sucking out its goo I think first it pumps something. Yeah, I think it, I think it pumps something into the beetle first and turns its insides into just gelatinous shit and then sucks em, back in sounds. And that’s my, and that’s my finger in the, uh, photo. It’s like, it’s like, you know what? Like, I, I was holding the flower with the assassin beetle, killing the other beetle and then I fucking snapped. It.

Mattew Souza (00:34):

That’s crazy.

Sevan Matossian (00:37):

FETO some of my best DMS Fergie. You’re starting to like, I’m starting to actually look forward to opening your DMS. I hate the rest of you, but I’m actually starting to like you, like, you actually sent me shit and I’m like, oh that’s wow. This guy’s like, he, he, what did you send me the other day about basically you sent me some stuff about working on myself that I found fascinating that I really liked just basically don’t turn into an asshole just cuz you’re covering a bunch of assholes. And I was like, oh that’s that’s good. That’s that’s important.

Mattew Souza (01:12):

That was like advice to you. Or that was like a quote he offered up or

Sevan Matossian (01:14):

Something. It was some advice. I, I forget exactly how he worded it. Did did, did I ever tell the story about the cigars on this?

Mattew Souza (01:23):

Not when I’ve been here. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (01:28):

Ah, yes. Holy cow. I’m gonna tell the story about cigars, but really quick. I wanna tell you something. Oh, did you send the uh, link to our special guest?

Mattew Souza (01:35):

Mm, no, send it right now.

Sevan Matossian (01:37):

Uh, we’re going, we have a special guest coming on to, um, we’re gonna earlier this morning with, with uh, Justin Nunley. Um, and Caleb, we did predictions for the UFC tomorrow, but the card has changed so much. It’s like, holy shit. What happened?

Mattew Souza (01:52):

Yeah. There’s some drama with that. Huh?

Sevan Matossian (01:55):

Don’t I can’t even believe it. They just it’s like, they just went in the back and they’re like, all right, you’re gonna fight you and you’re gonna fight. They just switched everything up. Just

Mattew Souza (02:04):

Call it audible. The show must go on. Huh? Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (02:06):

It’s it’s fascinating. Actually. I can’t even only Dana white could have pulled it off. So there’s these two guys and they uh, there’s these two guys and they, they, they live together and one of the guys doesn’t have a job. So he is always at home. So the guy goes to work. He comes home and the um, uh, the house smells like cigars and he goes, Hey dude, I go to work all day. I come home and, and the house smells like cigars. You need to stop smoking when I’m at work. And every time this guy goes to work and comes home, his roommate, the house smells like cigars and he gets starting to get pissed at his roommate. This goes on for like a month. So finally he, um, he takes one of his roommates, uh, cigars and he wipes it on his ass.

Mattew Souza (02:47):


Sevan Matossian (02:48):

Have you heard this one?

Mattew Souza (02:49):


Sevan Matossian (02:50):

And he wipes the cigar on his ass and uh, and uh, so, so he goes to work and his roommate smoke in the cigar and he smokes like, you know, three quarters of it. And he’s like, man, this tastes horrible. And uh, the guy comes home and he noticed the house still smells like cigars, but not as much. It’s like, Hmm. So he wipes takes another one of his cigars and wipes it on his ass. And this goes on for like, like a month. And he’s noticing the house is smelling less and less like cigars and the actually smoking less and less. Right. So finally he’s like, fuck. So he, he, this guy guy has a brand new box of cigars and the roommate takes it instead of just wiping his ass with it. He fucking takes each one and he fucking Kesters it a little bit puts about an inch of the cigar up in his ass and twirls it around.

Sevan Matossian (03:36):

So box of them that, yeah. And so he goes to work and he comes home and the house doesn’t smell like cigar smoke. And he’s like, Hey, what’s going on the house? Doesn’t smell like cigar smoke. He goes, I quit. I can’t stay on the taste of those anymore. <laugh> like, awesome. So the roommate wakes up in the morning, the one that normally goes to work and Kesters the cigars and he’s feels like something’s missing. So he goes to the store and he gets a box of cigars and he, he picked up a new habit every morning. He wakes up and just shoves a cigar in his ass. <laugh> now the moral, the story is if you, you gotta be careful with what you’re doing. If, if you, if you’re always bitching at someone for, uh, uh, a being a, if, if you spend your life chasing, um, pedophiles, uh, and, and hating on pedophiles, you become, you can become the bitch that hates pedophiles. And it’s not a pretty identity. You gotta, you gotta be careful with, uh, with, with who you become while you’re trying to deter someone from, ah, from doing what you don’t want them to do. He became a guy who loved having a cigar shoved up his ass. He, that other guy dropped a habit. He picked up a habit. <laugh>

Mattew Souza (04:51):

Yeah. That backfired unintended consequence there. Unintended consequence. Huh?

Sevan Matossian (04:55):

Yeah. And so it’s, it’s, it’s, it’s like that. And I’ve, I told a story about my son. Um, this is free advice. I normally charge $500 an hour for this advice. Um, but I’ll tell you, this is free advice. I was always for about a month. I, I, my son was always, my son’s hair got long. So he was always wiping his hair out of his face. And I was always noticing dirt on his face, cuz he was wiping the hair out of his face. And I’m always, I started saying to him like 20 times a day, dude, you have dirt on your face. Dude. You have dirt on your face. And after about a month I’m like, fuck, I’ve become the guy who tells my son, you have dirt on your face. He must fucking hate me. So I’m like, I’m not saying that to him anymore. Every time I want, I see dirt on his face. I’m just gonna look at him. Be like, dude, I love you. <laugh> and I just flip the script. Fuck the dirt. And now he’s like, it’s good. I’m not an asshole anymore.

Mattew Souza (05:43):

No more dirt. Is

Sevan Matossian (05:44):

There something? Yeah I we’re no, no there’s still tons of dirt. I just, now I just go over now. I tell my love. You appreciate it. I wipe it off, but I don’t wanna be the guy who says to my son, um, uh, wipe the dirt off your face. I don’t wanna be the who’s like just, all I see is fucking Jeff. Beko in the comments.

Mattew Souza (06:02):


Sevan Matossian (06:03):


Mattew Souza (06:04):

My relationship with him has changed a little bit.

Sevan Matossian (06:07):

Even ly spotted him today. He’s like, who the fuck is this? Yeah, be right back guys. I need to grab some more cookies. Grab these nuts while you’re at it. Jeffrey <laugh> oh, Jeffrey found a home. I bet you Jeffrey was raised in, uh, in an abusive home and now he loves it here because I just abuse him. He’s like, oh,

Mattew Souza (06:28):

He feels out. Oh he feels,

Sevan Matossian (06:30):

He’s like, oh

Mattew Souza (06:31):

This is my love language.

Sevan Matossian (06:32):

He feels so good to send a Heidi for some cigars. Geez. Louise wa zombie. My goodness.

Mattew Souza (06:41):


Sevan Matossian (06:42):

Goodness. We’ll send those to bill Clinton. Uh, Seon was the cigar. Oh great.

Mattew Souza (06:50):

They’re they’re coming in hot tonight. They are. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (06:55):

I hope we get a special guest tonight.

Mattew Souza (07:00):

Me too.

Sevan Matossian (07:02):

I think so. So next weekend you’re getting married.

Mattew Souza (07:05):

That’s right.

Sevan Matossian (07:07):

And this weekend, my kid’s going to juujitsu tournament kind of the same, same, same stressors.

Mattew Souza (07:12):

Yeah. Same similar feelings.

Sevan Matossian (07:16):

Um, I, my, my, my son Joseph, the last tournament we went to, he didn’t, he didn’t participate. We got there and he didn’t participate and it’s, and it’s 130 bucks to do G and Nogi if you go early. So, so kind of like threw that money away. The tournament before that he went undefeated in G and Nogi he’s five and after he was done and we were all done and he got his medal and shit, the, the tournament, people came up to him and they’re like, Hey, would your son mind doing one more match? There was a kid here who didn’t get any matches. And I wasn’t there. And we, we weren’t and my wife’s not tournament savvy and, and neither am I. And she said, yeah, sure, no problem. And he gets in there and he is in there with a fucking six and a half year old who’s 10 or 15 pounds more than him and the kid just smashes him.

Mattew Souza (08:03):


Sevan Matossian (08:04):

And makes him cry.

Mattew Souza (08:05):

And that’s what he ended on.

Sevan Matossian (08:06):

And that’s what he ended on. So the next, so this tournament tomorrow, there’s no one in Joseph’s GE match for geese. And so I noticed that they moved him up in age division. So he was born in 2016. They put him in the 2015 class. If he, if he’s five right now, I can’t imagine him going up against a six year old Avi I’ll he would smash him. And I’m concerned. I’m concerned. And when, and, and this kid is the better than this kid is better than a at jujitsu than ABI was at five, but still it’s like, holy shit. I’m. So tomorrow I’m not sure what to do. And I asked the Jisu instructor and I’m like, Hey, sometimes you just gotta let em fight. <laugh> I get that like, like I don’t wanna stripes. Yeah. Um, but uh, well

Mattew Souza (09:14):

Instantly what came to mind is like his first opponent will be the kid from last time, like some CRA kid shit, you know?

Sevan Matossian (09:19):

Oh man. Like

Mattew Souza (09:20):

He has to go back and there’s that kid. And like, he has to kind of deal with all that. How did you deal with it last time when he didn’t wanna compete?

Sevan Matossian (09:26):

I, I, I, I, here’s the thing chill

Mattew Souza (09:29):

There and

Sevan Matossian (09:29):

Yeah. So here’s the thing, Ari, my, my, the youngest kid’s like, I’m going there. Fucking mash people. Like he’s just like, I’m handling my business. Mm-hmm <affirmative> we’ll get back to that. Yep. Speaking of handling business, Mr. Bosman,

Adrian Bozman (09:44):


Sevan Matossian (09:46):


Adrian Bozman (09:46):

Do you can, I’m trying to get somewhere that’s. Well, no, I’m actually, uh, enjoying an evening with my friends out in Nashville, but, uh, trying to get somewhere a little bit more quiet.

Sevan Matossian (09:55):

Oh, you’re such a good dude. We’re gonna make this so fast. Are you up to date on what the heck is going on with the UFC?

Adrian Bozman (10:03):

I, uh, no, I honestly, I got a text message a couple hours ago and it was a friend of mine asking, what do you think about Ferguson versus, uh, Diaz? And I was like, what the hell you talking about? And, uh, that’s when I found out so little

Sevan Matossian (10:19):

Weird. Yeah. They shook, they shook the whole card up. I guess what they’re saying is, is comat had some medical issues making weight and uh, so they, they, they cut ’em loose and they’re, and they’re letting them fight in the catch weight.

Adrian Bozman (10:32):

Yeah. That’s big time air quotes. I think that’s, uh, they hyped up that fight between Diaz and Hamad. And I don’t think they had any intentions in making it cuz it’s a stupid fight.

Sevan Matossian (10:45):

Wow. And so do you think that the fight in the back before then, between ho so just, it’s funny you say that cuz just hours before Holland and COMSAT got in a fight at the way in, and now they’re fighting.

Adrian Bozman (11:03):

I mean, I don’t know anything about anything, but seems a little fishy to me.

Sevan Matossian (11:07):

<laugh> I think the quote is from, uh,

Mattew Souza (11:11):

Some good drama.

Sevan Matossian (11:11):

I think the quotes from that movie. Yeah. Um, what’s the show called? I don’t know shit about fuck. Is that the quote you’re trying to, but, but you’re doing the clean version. I don’t know anything about anything <laugh>

Adrian Bozman (11:22):

No, I, no, I think, I think I like it the way that I said it

Sevan Matossian (11:27):

<laugh> you know what show I’m talking about?

Adrian Bozman (11:29):

Uh, no, actually I don’t. I know that it’s a quote. I know that it’s like a, a meme these days, but I’ve never seen the original of that.

Sevan Matossian (11:37):

So I saw the show what’s that it’s called Ozarks. That’s what it is. Ozark. She didn’t watch Ozarks.

Adrian Bozman (11:41):

Uh, no, I watched the first season and I was kind of underwhelmed.

Sevan Matossian (11:44):

It gets better.

Adrian Bozman (11:45):

That’s what everybody says, but that’s a, that’s a lot of time, man. Who’s got

Sevan Matossian (11:49):

Time for that. It is, it is. You’re too busy. How many, how many, um, uh, um, events have you written for next year’s games?

Adrian Bozman (11:57):

<laugh> written or like concepts. I got concepts. Lots of concepts, but

Sevan Matossian (12:01):


Adrian Bozman (12:01):

Solidified. Alrighty. Huh.

Sevan Matossian (12:04):

So you’re just it’s it’s you can’t get off the train.

Adrian Bozman (12:08):

Yeah, but I mean like it’s the same

Sevan Matossian (12:11):

Way that you want to?

Adrian Bozman (12:13):

Well, I was gonna say, I mean, I think it’s the same way that you kind of operate in the sense that like you have ideas all the time. It’s not like you have ideas from nine to five and then you shut that down. No, it’s like, there’s been a part of my life for a long time. So yeah. I have lots of ideas,

Sevan Matossian (12:29):

Ladies and gentlemen, did you see that master manipulation? That Adrian Bosman just did. He, he, he appealed to my ego and said, well, you’re a lot the same way. And then, and then, and then, and then we both elevated to sort of like this genius obsessive status. And then he had the moon behind him and he took off his hat and now I’m like swooning a bit <laugh> I don’t know where I’m at

Mattew Souza (12:51):

Massive full strategy. I go, yeah. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (12:55):

Adrian. How long have you been doing jujitsu?

Adrian Bozman (12:57):

Since 2019.

Sevan Matossian (12:59):

Uh, and, and do you have your gray belt yet?

Adrian Bozman (13:02):

<laugh> no, you barely do.

Sevan Matossian (13:03):


Adrian Bozman (13:04):

What’s that you don’t get gray belt. It’s a used, but I mean I’m basically at gray belt level. Yes.

Sevan Matossian (13:10):

Oh, oh, oh. What belt do you have?

Adrian Bozman (13:12):

I have a blue belt, but I’m nothing special. I get smashed on the regular

Sevan Matossian (13:17):

And uh, and are, and are you a fan of the UFC

Adrian Bozman (13:20):

Big time? Yes.

Sevan Matossian (13:21):

Awesome. Uh, and I knew you were, I’m just kind of like setting the scene here. Um,

Adrian Bozman (13:27):

Priming it, priming it for the listeners. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (13:29):

Tony Ferguson’s loss’ last four fights in a row. All against insane savages. Right? Just engaged

Adrian Bozman (13:35):

Destroys Charles Diaz.

Sevan Matossian (13:36):

Pardon me?

Adrian Bozman (13:37):

He destroys Diaz. <laugh> yeah. He’s fought the best. Best. Who is Diaz fought recently. Give me a break.

Sevan Matossian (13:50):

He just F

Adrian Bozman (13:50):

Diaz brothers fan, but

Sevan Matossian (13:52):

He just fought Leon Edwards.

Adrian Bozman (13:58):

Yeah, dude. This is Ferguson’s fight. Okay. Yeah, he he’s holding fucking with Leon Edwards.

Sevan Matossian (14:06):

He did get, he did get tossed up, but he, but he, he stayed in there to do some damage for a few seconds in the final round,

Adrian Bozman (14:12):

Man, he, he gave the finger at the bell. Give a break that does not a fight make that’s. That’s ridiculous.

Sevan Matossian (14:18):

Matt, I wanna tell you a SA, I wanna tell Matt burns a sad story here real quick. The other day I got on the scale and I weighed one 70, wait, that’s more than me. Adrian. Adrian has the most beautiful fucking lean chiseled iron body and he’s fucking four inches taller than me. And he always 1 65. And when I saw I weighed one 70, I’m like, I am a fucking marshmallow.

Adrian Bozman (14:42):

Adrian is a Dick

Sevan Matossian (14:43):

Adrian with timing and knot. Unless I beat him with my Dick,

Adrian Bozman (14:47):

I got four phones.

Sevan Matossian (14:50):

Uh, so you’re go. Okay. Ferguson. I, I like it. And you think he’s gonna Dar some or something,

Adrian Bozman (14:54):

Dude. How does, how does, how does Daz win this fight? <laugh> honest

Sevan Matossian (15:01):

Question. I think he, he knocks it. He, oh God.

Adrian Bozman (15:04):

You’re out of your mind. Ferguson res him you’re right. This

Sevan Matossian (15:08):

Is you’re right. And remember when Charles Oliver fucking, um, armbar, uh, uh, Ferguson and he wouldn’t tap and his, he broke his arm and he just still didn’t tap

Adrian Bozman (15:16):

Too tough for his own. Good. I think he’s way higher in his career decline than, than Diaz. I mean, I just don’t see how this goes any other way.

Sevan Matossian (15:27):

Okay. Uh, comat uh, at the catch weight of 180 against Kevin Holland,

Adrian Bozman (15:34):

Man, I love fight way more than, than what was slated. Uh, and I gotta say it’s a tough one for me to call cuz I like both of them. I think Kevin Holland is so fun to watch and just awesome. Um, but I gotta give it to COMSAT. I mean, I, I was kind of thinking he was just a hype train fighter until I saw the fight with Gilbert burns. Which side note I think burns. If you go back and watch it, I think he edged out the victory. However, the fact that he could last, uh, and go to that absolute war with him. Um, I think coms out’s got this one. I, I think it’ll be a lot closer than, than, uh, people think maybe, um, especially like Jamiah fans, but uh, yeah man, I think he’s gonna get it in the end.

Sevan Matossian (16:21):

I, I hate to do this to you, but what round Adrian?

Adrian Bozman (16:25):

Oh, uh, is it, are they doing that as a three round or a five rounder? They did. They’re given that one five too. Wow. Even though he missed. Wow. Okay. Uh,

Sevan Matossian (16:35):

I think Holland demanded it, dude. Holland said, Hey, I’m only fighting this dude. If they make it go five rounds.

Adrian Bozman (16:41):

Okay. I don’t know. I don’t, I don’t think it makes the distance. I’m gonna, I’m gonna say third round. It’s over coms out ground and pound.

Sevan Matossian (16:53):

Okay. Uh, that’s better than I than, than I thought. Uh, I’m gonna go with, um, comat also, uh, and, and I’m going with Dazs in the, in the first one and then finally, oh, how,

Adrian Bozman (17:04):


Sevan Matossian (17:05):


Adrian Bozman (17:06):

You’re outta your mind.

Sevan Matossian (17:07):

Hey, here’s the problem. Those dudes could beat each other to death and they’d still be alive standing there. Both those dudes have like heads that don’t break

Adrian Bozman (17:15):

<laugh>, but that’s why you have a ref that steps in and says, okay gentlemen, this is clearly going one way and it’s time to call it a night.

Sevan Matossian (17:24):

Um, and then, uh, finally, uh, Daniel Rodriguez against Lee gin. I’m gonna go with, uh, Daniel Rodriguez.

Adrian Bozman (17:32):

I’m with you on that one a hundred percent. Uh, the leech is fun, but I think he’s just not as well rounded as he needs to for this level of competition. Um, yeah. I’m with you.

Sevan Matossian (17:45):

Awesome. Uh, one final question. Uh, CrossFit related, is that true? The rumors that I heard that, uh, Tia to me who currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee is moving back to Australia.

Adrian Bozman (17:56):

I, you have to ask her. I have no idea.

Sevan Matossian (17:58):

Okay. She doesn’t re will you, if you see her, will you ask her and get back to me? If you just like, if you run into her at the bar or at the gym or whatever,

Adrian Bozman (18:05):

I’d be happy to.

Sevan Matossian (18:06):

You’re a good dude. Ladies and gentlemen, the, the man, Adrian Bosman programmer for the CrossFit games.

Adrian Bozman (18:13):

All right. I look forward to, uh, seeing how wrong you are tomorrow. When Diaz just

Sevan Matossian (18:17):

Gets shot, I’ll be texting you with

Mattew Souza (18:19):

Written down. I got him written down, booky, cook it.

Adrian Bozman (18:22):

See you guys.

Sevan Matossian (18:23):

You’re the man by Adrian. Thank

Mattew Souza (18:24):


Sevan Matossian (18:27):

Oh man. What a good dude. Break from dinner.

Mattew Souza (18:32):

That was really cool of him.

Sevan Matossian (18:34):

Jeremy world $5 $5 $5. Um, I wish that were true. Adrian don’t know shit about MMA. I wish that were true. I wish that were true. So what did we learn? We learned that, uh, that, uh, he thinks Tony Ferguson’s gonna win and don’t put a cigar in your ass repeatedly. <laugh> uh, because you might end up, uh, liking it Jeff, a little too much go fuck yourself. May. Uh, okay. Uh,

Mattew Souza (19:06):

I see that all,

Sevan Matossian (19:10):

Maybe Jeff is a Yolo from the moon. Do you remember that dude who got banned? Yolo, Yolo.

Mattew Souza (19:14):

Yolo, Yolo only had like two or three things that it would say every time.

Sevan Matossian (19:17):

So yeah, Jeff’s kind of the same. Jeff’s

Mattew Souza (19:19):


Sevan Matossian (19:21):

I’m here for the monologue. Okay.

Mattew Souza (19:25):

That a picture. Oh, I thought that was a picture of Tia. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (19:28):

Where are we? Uh, Brian just dropped that on us the other day that she’s moving back to Australia.

Mattew Souza (19:35):


Sevan Matossian (19:39):

Send this your daughter and what the hell is that?

Mattew Souza (19:43):

That’s what I was wondering. <laugh> you got some interesting subtitles. Let’s say,

Sevan Matossian (19:49):

Uh, here, here. I wanna say

Mattew Souza (19:51):

This. I saw this.

Sevan Matossian (19:52):

Okay. I wanna say one more thing about the fight and then we’ll go to whatever my notes are, which we

Mattew Souza (19:56):


Sevan Matossian (19:57):

Through as much shit as we can. Um, what’s interesting about this fight is this is Diaz’s last fight. He has one fight left with his UFC contract. He’s 37 years old and Tony Ferguson has lost four in a row. What I’m tripping on is if, if I have to guess this is both of their last fights, I, I can’t imagine Dana resigning either of them.

Mattew Souza (20:20):

No, but

Sevan Matossian (20:21):

I could see Ferguson saying, Hey, cuz you know, he wasn’t supposed to fight Diaz until the last minute. And I could, I could see Dana seems like a real loyal guy. Mm-hmm <affirmative> and him and him being like, okay, you did me a solid by taking this fight and doing a last minute, change up, I’m going win or lose. I’m gonna give you one more fight. But if Ferguson loses this that’s five in row. Now he’s fought the five hardest dudes you could ever imagine fighting ever. Charles Oliver, Justin Gache Chandler Diaz. And there’s uh, I don’t know who it was. One more. Was it con McGregor or some, some crazy shit like that. So, uh, Nate is moving on to his own promotion, real fighting. Well, okay.

Mattew Souza (21:03):

I always like worry about those Diaz brother’s health. Like when you hear ’em talk on interviews and stuff like that,

Sevan Matossian (21:08):

They don’t talk so good.

Mattew Souza (21:10):

No, no. And they’re like they’re so they’re almost like primitive. Like when you see ’em with the reporters, like you would have to have you seen ’em slapped up that one reporter before? Have you seen those clips? I think it was.

Sevan Matossian (21:21):

Is it old?

Mattew Souza (21:23):

Uh, yeah. It’s kind of old. Not like super old, like maybe like a month or so ago

Sevan Matossian (21:27):

They slapped a reporter.

Mattew Souza (21:30):

Uh, Nate did. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (21:31):

He goes, no, I didn’t see that.

Mattew Souza (21:32):

Was it a bar stool sports guy. And he was kind of doing like, it’d be the equivalent. If I was over there interviewing a games athlete and he goes, Hey, you remember that shit? You said on, uh, on, on, um, Twitter. I go, oh yeah. Sorry about that. He just

Sevan Matossian (21:47):


Mattew Souza (21:47):

Yeah, he just kind of gave him like a pop and pop, like nothing like crazy or super violent, but it’s just, it’s just crazy to see how like primitive they’re he just like that’s it.

Sevan Matossian (21:55):

Caleb, pull that shit up. Caleb, pull that shit up. <laugh> he slapped a elk boy. Oh no shit.

Mattew Souza (22:01):

I don’t know if he did he slap? Did someone put that on? The comments is how he is. Yeah. Okay. I can’t, I can’t believe he didn’t see that

Sevan Matossian (22:07):

He is he God, Jeff stop. But that’s a great comment. He’s like Encino man. Yes. I, I agree. It was ESPN dude. And it was a joke. I don’t, I think it wasn’t

Mattew Souza (22:19):

Wasn’t a joke.

Sevan Matossian (22:20):

Hey, this show that we’re doing right now has already been flagged

Mattew Souza (22:24):

Because of the music in the background of Adrian.

Sevan Matossian (22:27):

No, because I, I must have said something.

Mattew Souza (22:30):


Sevan Matossian (22:31):

But I already, but I already sent in a request for a review <laugh>

Mattew Souza (22:34):

Oh, that was quick,

Sevan Matossian (22:35):

Bruce. You don’t have to ever cough up cash, dude. You’re the greatest fucking supporter telling people to hit, like, by the way,

Mattew Souza (22:43):

Bruce, good Dean.

Sevan Matossian (22:43):

It’s crazy. If you, those of you who are here so often, if you haven’t hit that, um, that bell, I started doing that on people’s accounts. I wanna follow you can, there’s a bell you can hit. And anytime someone goes live that you like, like, if you wanna always know and it’ll send you like right to your phone, Bing. Oh shit. Uh, so and so is going live

Mattew Souza (23:04):

Notification squad.

Sevan Matossian (23:06):

Yeah. Yeah,

Mattew Souza (23:07):

No, we don’t do weird shit like that.

Sevan Matossian (23:09):

<laugh> Hey that I was, I was talking to, um, some friends today about the CrossFit journal. Again. That’s another thing. That’s crazy too. We, we had, I had a journal app developed and every time we posted something, it would send you a fucking notification. How does CrossFit Inc with the largest journal in the fitness and health world not have their, the app back now that fucking ding Don’s gone. Ding O OT. The, the CEO that was after Greg,

Mattew Souza (23:40):

Your OTT thing was a genius idea.

Sevan Matossian (23:44):

Thank you. Yeah.

Mattew Souza (23:46):

And you were, you were like just early enough to where it would’ve been like perfect capitalization on, on the whole entire, everybody stuck inside and all the streaming wars that were happening at that time to launch like Disney plus and all that stuff everywhere. Like way more people were on the OTT too. That was a big mistake on CrossFits part.

Sevan Matossian (24:04):

And I had a company that was gonna make all the OTTs for us. There’s like 27 or 34 or whatever. And they were gonna make every single OTT and we figured it out. And if we got 1% of 1% of all the subscribers to those, because all the cable networks have their own at OTT, all the different smart devices have their own OTT. It was, it was like 30 million a year. Yeah. With no demand to publish new shit, it was a fucking brilliant contract. I negotiated

Mattew Souza (24:30):

Mm-hmm <affirmative> yeah, that would’ve been huge. And then continue to unpack the journal in different ways and redistribute that content and more.

Sevan Matossian (24:37):

I think it might, I think it might have been good for the affiliates too.

Mattew Souza (24:41):

Anything that promotes the message of the methodology is always good for the affiliates.

Sevan Matossian (24:49):

SSON can you get Brian to come say all the things he avoided on the morning? Chalk up H WPO episode. I don’t know what that is. I dunno what the morning chalk up H WPO. Oh, that’s Fraser’s thing. I, I have nothing nice to say. So I’m not gonna say anything

Mattew Souza (25:12):

About his, uh, camp.

Sevan Matossian (25:14):

Yeah. <laugh> I see what you’re doing. C I know what stupid. Um, is she, I mean, it’s cool. I’m glad. I’m glad. I’m glad. It’s cool. Like it’s cool that people are, are finding a place to work out and move around. I don’t think it says anything about Matt. I don’t think it says anything about Ben. I don’t think any of the, the narratives being spun up or valid in any way. I think it’s all just, just normal shit. Like you worked at seven 11 and now you work at yeah. And after CVS you might manage a fucking longs. And after when you’re 50, you might be the general manager of Safeway. And then when you’re 70 retired, it’s just like just people moving around and shifting. But when you have so many athletes moving there and people are getting excited, really you’re just setting yourself up for disappointment. You can see all the disappointment that’s coming next year for that camp. I mean it’s

Mattew Souza (26:08):

Well, just like statistically, they have like so many people in the camp that not everybody is gonna do fantastic. Right?

Sevan Matossian (26:13):

Like, yeah. And there’s some fucking like old fucking dogs in there. It’s like, what do you think is gonna happen to Conor McGregor when he comes back to fight? If he doesn’t fight someone, if he doesn’t fight someone like that’s semi retarded, he’s

Mattew Souza (26:25):

Selling whiskey. He’s like,

Sevan Matossian (26:26):

He’s gonna get fucking knocked into fucking next. I mean, he’s toast for

Mattew Souza (26:30):


Sevan Matossian (26:30):

So, and they have a few people like that in the camp. And

Mattew Souza (26:33):

I think the biggest thing too, and like Ben’s defense is like, we don’t really know what his like long term goals with everything is like maybe he was on the way out and he was comfortable with reducing the camp and only wanted to focus on one athlete as opposed to, it sounds like what, um, O’Keeffe and Frazier have going is they want to build like a whole entire retreat or whatever of like,

Sevan Matossian (26:52):

Don’t worry if I’m an athlete, you know what I do?

Mattew Souza (26:56):


Sevan Matossian (26:56):

I fucking reach out to the fucking liver king and I’m like, Hey, I want be your fucking dude.

Mattew Souza (27:06):


Sevan Matossian (27:07):

I try something. Totally. Me and me. And so, and so me and my trainer want to come live on your ranch in fucking Texas,

Mattew Souza (27:14):

Live the ancestral. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (27:17):

And we’re gonna train for the CrossFit games and we just need a year and a fucking toilet. You know what a year it is. I

Mattew Souza (27:23):

Feel like that’d be perfect for like cult Mertons or something. Like, you just have to have somebody who’s just like, doesn’t need anything fancy. Just wants to grind and enjoys doing it.

Sevan Matossian (27:31):

Yeah. Yeah. And I, I can tell you a thousand reasons why that would be so fucking sexy and cool. And you’d put on a shitload of followers and it wouldn’t matter how well you did it would matter how hard you worked. And those would be the rewards you get. I wonder if a girl could do that, what girl would fit in there? I fucking, I, I could see Alex GZA as like a female Tarzan

Mattew Souza (27:58):

Kinda reminds me the Daisy fresh. Remember we had the coach Heath on here and they’d like lived in the gin and it was just grim. And they just like, yes. Made it work with one hot plate between like nine dudes living in there.

Sevan Matossian (28:09):

I wish the dude would come live in a year with me.

Mattew Souza (28:11):

Congratulations on your blue belt. IIE.

Sevan Matossian (28:13):

She got a blue belt.

Mattew Souza (28:14):


Sevan Matossian (28:15):


Mattew Souza (28:16):

Very recently, like earlier this week, maybe.

Sevan Matossian (28:19):

Yeah. That’s awesome. Oh, and I, and I, that that’s awesome. Congratulations. Yeah. Is, uh, is Avi’s coach said to him, not, no one can never take that away. You’ll have that your whole life, someone in the comments wrote in that, in that thread recently on the hard work pays off training Instagram, someone in the comments wrote that the name was stupid.

Mattew Souza (28:37):

Did you want, should I bring that up? Should we investigate that

Sevan Matossian (28:39):

Post? And I wanna be like, you’re fucking stupid. Can you, the person wrote like a fucking paragraph telling them that the name was stupid. It’s like, are you fucking kidding me?

Mattew Souza (28:49):


Sevan Matossian (28:51):

I, I, other people have told me too well, uh, advanced marketing shows that you, the H WPO won’t stick because that letter and that consonant bouncing off of the w and then I’m just like, shut the fuck up. It’s great. Yeah. Killing it.

Mattew Souza (29:02):

He would’ve thought Amazon would’ve been a good name. He,

Sevan Matossian (29:04):

He, right. He got it. He did it. He owns that. We all know that that’s his, he made that his H w H WPO pro roster pro roster below me.

Mattew Souza (29:18):

<laugh> they like theology. He makes

Sevan Matossian (29:21):

This continuing to raise the bar Hebrew. I don’t know, continuing to fucking raise the geriatric. Oh. Someone from the real seven on podcast wrote, that’s a roster. That’s a roster. Do

Mattew Souza (29:31):

You approve that post

Sevan Matossian (29:33):

<laugh>? But that’s what pissed me off. That pissed me off. So that’s why I made it a post to balance it out. And I attacked scroll down and look at my post. I, I just fucking went on. I just like, let me see where your sponsors to now include a diaper company in geriatric gear. And then someone won. Will you like that please? Like, so I get 59 likes on that. And then, and then someone, I like this reply better. This is the guy whoever wrote this is smarter than me pull up some depends Connor team. Oh, that dude’s coming on the show.
