#692 – Dalton Rosta

Listen now

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

I know it’s a little self-serving. Bam, we’re live. But I wish some of these companies would just work with us and, uh, we could do so much for their events if there was just like, it would be so easy to promote you. This isn’t exclusive to the CrossFit scene either. Um, yeah, I look at, I look at the pfl. I mean, I mean I bet, I bet you if they just worked with us, we could have sold them 10,000 more sev on podcast alone. Could have sold them 10,000 more pay per views during the Kayla Harrison fight.

Caleb Beaver (00:36):

I didn’t even know it was happening. Honestly,

Sevan Matossian (00:38):

If, if they, if they would’ve just worked with us for the last year and what does work with us mean? They don’t have to pay us anything. Just keep us in the loop or tell us who you want us to interview of your fighters and we would’ve made you an extra five, $500,000 at 50 bucks a pop. 10,000 more, um, more views. I’m trying to figure out my headphones here. Can you still hear me?

Caleb Beaver (01:03):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (01:05):

Like, like, let, like, let me tell you, like, this thing just happened to me. Uh, Jed, I s Nelson. S Nelson. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. He just sent me the link to Wheel Wad, so

Caleb Beaver (01:16):

Oh yeah, that’s, I didn’t even know that was happening either.

Sevan Matossian (01:19):

So that’s, so check. Yeah, check this out. This shit is live right now. Like, how, how is someone not who, who works there? I mean, I know people are busy. It’s like, it’s like the other day. Someone, um, this is live right now on the wheel wad games. Uh, day one. Oh, I better pause that. I, I never know who hates me and is gonna report me for promoting their shit. But, um,

(01:48):

The, the other day we had someone on the show and before they came on the show, I think it was, uh, Paul, uh, Alco and he said, Hey, do you want me to promote this on my channels? And I said, yeah. He said, do you have any content for me? And I understand we don’t have the resources. We, we barely have the resources to make this thing work like this, so we don’t make promotional materials and send them out to people so that they can advertise for us if they’re gonna be on this podcast. But I’m just looking at this and I’m like, oh yeah, this is, this is cool. We definitely could have gotten, uh, behind this. I mean, we will get behind it, but all, there’s so many things that we could help where it could be mutually beneficial.

Caleb Beaver (02:26):

I think Kim is over there. Kim Dere.

Sevan Matossian (02:29):

Oh, the, the lady we had on who can’t see.

Caleb Beaver (02:32):

Yeah, she’s, I think she’s competing this weekend.

Sevan Matossian (02:36):

That’s awesome. That’s awesome. And it looks like a great venue.

Caleb Beaver (02:41):

Yeah, it’s a massive Fieldhouse. It’s really cool.

Sevan Matossian (02:45):

It looks like this is just day one. Subscribe to this, subscribe, turn on all notifications. You know what I was tripping on the other day is we live in a weird society. You can, you can follow someone on Instagram, but then make it so that you don’t get any of their notifications. I, I heard that the CEO or president saying this, like it was a good thing. And then you can turn off the fact that you see any of their content so that they won’t know that you unfollow them.

Caleb Beaver (03:25):

Yeah, just mute

Sevan Matossian (03:27):

Them. Yeah. I’m like, what a fuck. It’s like promoting deceit. Like, Hey dude, if you, I’ve done, if you wanna unfollow someone, just unfollow someone.

Caleb Beaver (03:35):

There are a couple pages that I’ve done that to you, like mean pages or something where I’ve like followed it, but I’ve muted them because they just take up so much of my feed. Right.

Sevan Matossian (03:44):

And

Caleb Beaver (03:44):

Then, but like, if it’s like a private page or something, if somebody I know sends stuff from there to me, then I can still see it. But that’s the only reason I would

Sevan Matossian (03:53):

Do it. Yeah. He actually couched it is if you don’t want him to know that you unfollowed them. It’s such a, I

Caleb Beaver (03:59):

Don’t really care. Yeah. I’ll go through my followers and unfollow like 300 people at a time just because they’re no use to me, no offense to those 300 people.

Sevan Matossian (04:08):

One time I unfollowed everyone on my, on my page. I was, I thought maybe it would help me get Unshadowed band. And I got like a dozen people who hit me up asking if something’s wrong with our, our relationship. Like, uh, no.

Caleb Beaver (04:27):

I mean, it’s like Dave doesn’t follow on anybody.

Sevan Matossian (04:30):

Right. And those are high, doesn’t like you. Those are, those are high maintenance friendships. You know, the the same thing this, if you don’t think that your friends lie to you or if you hold your friends to a standard that’s so high, you’re, you’re never gonna have any good friends’. Let I, I would even argue, like I’ve, I, I had a, I had a friend one time, um, who owed me 4,000 bucks. Never paid me. Another friend owed me another friend I lent $3,000 to so they could finish, finish their MBA at, uh, what’s the school in Malibu at Pepperdine.

(05:06):

My neighbors one time robbed me, and then the guy came over, he was paranoid, I think he was on meth and admitted it and gave us all our shit back. And my and my roommates at the time wanted me still to report him to the police. I’m not doing that. I don’t, I I would argue that my friendships that have gone through that shit are richer. I’ve had roommates who are heroin addicts who, uh, stole my bike and sold it. I’m not telling you that it doesn’t frustrate me, but those aren’t things that make me, would make me hate someone. It’s the same with the Liver King thing. It’s so interesting that Hiller made that entire video that to me clearly shows that what Hiller is saying is, is that, Hey, this guy stood for something and, and, and walked the walk. And a lot of people saw him walking the walk, but because he wasn’t perfect, you hate him and or, or you resent him, or you think that some guy on the internet owed you something because of the expectations you put on him. And it’s like, Hey, you put those expectations on him. He never

(06:19):

Go ahead.

Caleb Beaver (06:20):

I was watching that documentary that Jonah Hill put out it’s likes or Stutts or something like that, and it’s like a interview with his therapist. So this therapist he’s had for like five plus years, basically like changed Jonah Hill’s life or whatever. Jonah Hill started talking about that same thing where if you put your heroes on this pedestal or people you idolize on this pedestal of like, perfection, and then they do something to, to wrong you or to put a like, damper on your expectations, like now you’re offended and you’re mad at them. It’s, you did that. You’re projecting your own expectations on somebody that you don’t even know, but they’re also just as human as you.

Sevan Matossian (07:07):

Um, it, it, it’s so well said. And, and, and no one takes responsibility for the, for the, this isn’t a pity party either. No one, um, no, I’m not hungover. I had one white claw. My, my kids, you wanna know something? My kids are absolutely the sickest they’ve been in the entire time I’ve owned them. Yeah. I said it own them <laugh> and

Caleb Beaver (07:29):

You should return

Sevan Matossian (07:30):

’em. And they, it’s been like two weeks. It’s kind of crazy. They’re, they’re coughing in a way that I’ve never heard any human being cough and the, or something. And then yesterday I, I don’t know if I got it or what, but I haven’t been sleeping at all. I guess I slept five hours cuz we did the, the broadcast. Yeah. The expectations, the expectations we put on people are fucking nuts.

Caleb Beaver (07:53):

Is that why you’re in the guest house?

Sevan Matossian (07:56):

Oh no, I’m in the guest house cuz I’m, I’m doing my, oh, look at that. Are you guys talking

Dalton Rosta (08:01):

About the expectations of me being on time?

Sevan Matossian (08:04):

No.

(08:06):

And but, but you know what, that does bring me to it’s even, it’s even like the fight. It’s even like the fighters. Like look at, look at, look at Bellator in the, in the ufc we were just talking about just like ways that people could promote shit better. Like if, if I’m a, if I’m a fighter, and I apologize for dragging you into this Dalton. Good morning. Morning, uh, Dalton Rossa, uh, undefeated in seven amateur fights, undefeated in seven, uh, professional fights, basically 14 and oh, fighting on December 9th, on Showtime, uh, at, uh, Mohegan son. It’s gonna be an epic fight. Uh, one of the most beautiful human beings alive. A man that’s as big as a 2 0 5 and fights like a one 50 fiver. It’s going to be a truly, um, it’s a pleasure watching him, uh, perform. If I’m a fighter and I’m in your, and I work at you, you’re at a, um, American top team, right?

Dalton Rosta (09:00):

Yes, sir.

Sevan Matossian (09:01):

And, and I have more followers than Dalton. I take a, I would take a fucking picture with him and post it on my Instagram. Like there should be this, I notice that like even with the CrossFit athletes or with all these other athletes, like everyone should be promoting everyone and there should be like this crazy synergy and I just don’t see, I just don’t see that as much as, um, like look at Patty Plet and Molly Meatball. No one would fucking know who Molly Meatball is. Meatball Molly. But Patty just fucking drug her onto the train and and she’s killing it.

Dalton Rosta (09:37):

Yeah. I mean, you can’t give all that credit to Patty though. She’s done her, Hey, she had that spin and elbow too that kind of put her on the

Sevan Matossian (09:46):

Map. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m, I’m not, I’m not saying that, but like, here’s the truth. This is one of the greatest up and coming fighters ever. And no one, no one’s gonna know who, who he, who you are until like, like it would be so much richer if you got on the Dalton roster train now. And there’s people at his gym who know that. And I, I, I don’t know. I I I just think that there should be a synergy that people should be lifting each other up. It takes nothing from another fighter by promoting you. It takes nothing from if, uh, if that dickhead LeBron James were just to put his arm around the rookies and take pictures and put them on his Instagram, it would do, it takes nothing from him. That’s the thing people don’t realize when you elevate, what is it? Rising tides raise all ships. I, I huge, I hugely believe in that.

Dalton Rosta (10:42):

I’m amaz is an individual sport though, you know, and a lot of people, believe it or not, some of these fighters are in, in it just to make a paycheck because they have no other way to, you

Sevan Matossian (10:52):

Know? Right, right. I respect it. I

Dalton Rosta (10:54):

Respect it. They don’t care about like, getting famous. Some people do on the other hand, and they have other ways of making paychecks, but they’re doing this for attention. But, uh, I say the good majority of people that do this were good at fighting or realized that they had potential to be good at fighting and it was a pretty easy way for them to make a paycheck rather than, you know, going to college or, um, you know, or seek out other opportunities that really weren’t there in the first place.

Sevan Matossian (11:22):

Crazy, tough road to tow though, right? I mean, becoming a fighter is just, it’s like,

Dalton Rosta (11:29):

Yeah, it’s not for everybody. You don’t play fight

Sevan Matossian (11:32):

<laugh>.

Dalton Rosta (11:32):

It’s not like every other sport where you play, you know, you don’t play fighting and that’s the truest thing. People die in the cage, you know, people die in the boxing ring. It’s a very brutal sport when you lose. It’s, it can be very humiliating. You know, you, millions of people are watching, uh, ufc, Bellator Pfl at all. Millions of people are watching. And you could be on top of the world and everybody’s your fan and you’re winning and winning and winning. And then you see it all the time. One person takes a loss, everybody starts shitting on them. You know, sometimes it’s a really bad loss. Somebody gets knocked out and they’re humiliated in front of everybody in the world, and that’s a risk that they have to take going into the cage. And you hear a lot of fighters talk about it all the time where they’re like, I can get knocked out. You know, and it’s humiliating and the whole world will get to see that. So that’s the fear that a lot of these people have whenever they step in the cage.

Sevan Matossian (12:28):

Uh, uh, how, how many deaths does it? Is it nine, seven, excuse me, seven recorded deaths resulting from, uh, mixed martial arts

Caleb Beaver (12:37):

And then nine from unregulated votes.

Dalton Rosta (12:40):

Yeah. And you have to understand, this is a newer sport too. 1990s

Sevan Matossian (12:45):

And every fight changes your life. Every fight’s your Super Bowl too, which is fucking nuts, right? Yeah. It’s like, especially a guy like you who, who has, uh, an o in the, uh, lost column, but there’s, I always trip on that. There must be so much fucking insane pressure on fighters because every fight is literally the Super Bowl. You don’t have any, it’s not like the, the baseball season or the basketball season where you have, you know, I don’t know how many fucking hundred games those guys play. God, dude, it’s crazy. You’re undefeated. It’s crazy.

Dalton Rosta (13:17):

Yeah. I mean, every single fight, you, you step into the, if you lose, you know, that, I mean win or loss regardless, it’s not a race from your record where you see, look at football and other sports, they have seasons. You know, a team might do bad this season, the next season they’re doing well. Everybody hopped back on the train, everybody’s excited. The whole fan base is going crazy. You know, they might finish undefeated like the freaking Patriots did, or like the Dolphins did back in the seventies and they ended up winning the Super Bowl. But, you know, those are the glorifying moments. But sometimes, like this year with the Steelers where we’re winning franchise year in and year out, we’re not doing so well. You know, but people are always like, there’s always next season with fighting. You go out there, you get knocked out, you get humiliated, you get a loss on your record that doesn’t get erased. You just keep fighting and there’s always gonna be people talking about that loss.

Sevan Matossian (14:10):

Yes. All, uh, speaking of losses, um, what did you, did you watch the Israel Alex Beha fight? Mm-hmm.

Dalton Rosta (14:18):

<affirmative>, that’s a great fight.

Sevan Matossian (14:20):

Is, um, as a, as a fan, when I look at Alex Beha, I can’t even believe he’s a real human being.

Dalton Rosta (14:27):

He’s a huge dude,

Sevan Matossian (14:28):

Huge,

Dalton Rosta (14:29):

Biggest 85 pounder I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Dude, he’s listed at six four, but Izzy was like six three and he made Izzy look short in the cage. It might have just been the camera angles and like how he’s in his stance, but nonetheless he still looked massive. And then on top of that, you know, Izzy was kind of looked like a toothpick next to him too. It’s like, like how does this guy make 185 pounds?

Sevan Matossian (14:54):

Yeah, absolutely. Nuts. Is it hard for you to make, um, I, I watched a bunch of your interviews yesterday and you’re extremely passionate about, uh, the way you treat your body, what you eat, and, and, and, and actually even who’s involved in, in, um, in, in that process, um, is it, it sounds like it’s kind of easy for you to make 180 5, or I shouldn’t say easy. It sounds like you have it really dialed in. I couldn’t believe what I heard you say yesterday. You said that the day before weighings, you drink a gallon of water.

Dalton Rosta (15:24):

Yeah, I still do. And there’s a lot of fighters that will cut their water out 24 hours before. If we, if we weigh in at 9:00 AM they’ll have their last bit of water at 9:00 AM the day before on Wednesday. There’s a lot of guys that don’t eat or drink water. And I’m like, that’s so bad for your body. Not just because you’re dehydrant, you’re, you’re dehydrating yourself from the workout later at night and then going to sleep, or whether you’re doing it the morning up to get the last few pounds off. You’re dehydrating yourself by forcing the water out. But not only that are you, you’re not consuming water for 24 hours, right? It’s terrible for your body. Same thing with the food, you know, your insulin levels, everything else that has to, that, that involves, I mean, you’re, you’re in a fasted state. There’s obviously benefits to fasting, but whenever you’re dehydrated and you’re losing weight and you’re not taking any carbs or any really any food at all, you know, you’re, you’re destroying your hormones, you’re destroying your body. And there’s, there’s a lot of, like I said, nutritionist that I feel like are doing it wrong. And I’m not gonna be their Guinea pig. You know, I, I haven’t dialed in like you said. Um, I wouldn’t call it easy. It’s easy for me. It’s not gonna be easy for 99% of human beings. You know what I mean? And that’s why at the top of each sport, you have less than 1%.

Sevan Matossian (16:35):

I wanna, I wanna share this with you guys. Uh, this is from, um, Dalton’s Instagram page. I don’t think I sent you this, uh, Caleb. That’s why I’m pulling it up. Okay, here we go. Let me, let me know if you guys can’t hear this. I’m, I’m, I’m on, I’m I’m outta my normal studio so my shit’s kind can get a little weird. It’s

Speaker 4 (16:56):

What you all been waiting for ain. When people play paper folk game, if they can’t stand it, they doing something new. I

Sevan Matossian (17:02):

Apologize. So let’s get, hold on, hold on. Where’s that video where it’s got Conor Mcg? Oh, here it is. Is it? Yeah. Here. Great.

Speaker 5 (17:11):

You’ve gotta feel some way, so why not feel unbeatable? Why not feel unable? Why not feel like the best to ever do it?

Speaker 6 (17:33):

End

Speaker 4 (17:33):

Of the of the

Sevan Matossian (17:34):

Day? This is such a good message. Is this, uh, when when you heard him say all that, were you like, yeah, that’s me. I I I’m gonna embody that mindset. When you heard Connor say that, if you’re gonna feel some way, why not just feel unbeatable?

Dalton Rosta (17:53):

Yeah, I, so at the, the person who made that video for me, his name Jack lte,

Sevan Matossian (18:00):

Uh, Jack who,

Dalton Rosta (18:01):

Jack lte, he’s up and coming, uh, like videographer and media guy. He’s with like Cage Media and he does a lot of my stuff. And uh, I mean, just going off the quotes, that’s Con McGregor someone I looked up to since I first Yeah, he’s young. He’s still in college, is about to graduate. And

Sevan Matossian (18:21):

That’s the way you do it.

Dalton Rosta (18:22):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (18:23):

That’s the way you do it.

Dalton Rosta (18:25):

Long story short, the Con McGregor quotes, I, I mean I, I’ve been looking up to him since I was, since I started mma, you know, he changed the sport. Uh, he’s done so many inspirational and motivat motivational things to plenty of fighters, you know, regardless all the other bullshit that he’s did aside when he was on his way up before he got rich, you know, super inspirational person, super good fighter, you know, made it out the mud. And uh, I mean I feel like that’s kind of where I came from and I started from the bottom and I’m making it, making my way up every day, you know, every fight, one fight at a time. And, uh, there’s a lot of his quotes and a lot of things that he said and have done that I can resonate with.

Sevan Matossian (19:14):

Um, going, going back to the food thing, you talk about how you take tests to, uh, to show yourself what foods you might, um, be, I’m not sure what the exact word is, but intolerant to,

Dalton Rosta (19:26):

Yeah. So I, let me clear that up. I haven’t done it in a while. I mean this, my, the first time I did it again was just recently Uhhuh, uh, elite Living and Health, the, uh, company I’m sponsored by, uh, just joined the team recently. They ordered one for me. I had the one order one for me as long as well as like other blood work. Uh, like your vitamin D level was vitamin B, the whole like panel your lipids, iron levels, hemoglobin. Um, so I did all that to see everything and I found out that I’m no longer intolerant or allergic to any foods really at all. Oh, wow. Which is interesting cuz last time I got it done I was intolerant to almonds and, and um, cashews and peanuts. Like there was a lot of nuts on there that I was intolerant to.

Sevan Matossian (20:18):

And what does that mean? They just cause excess inflammation?

Dalton Rosta (20:21):

Yeah. So when, when you eat these foods, they cause inflammation in a gut which cause inflammation throughout your body, your joints, it raises your cortisol levels, lower your HRV levels. There’s several different things that happen in your body is a chain reaction of events whenever you eat these foods that you’re intolerant to. And that’s why I said whenever these nutritionist, um, are creating these, these plans and these templates for these fighters, not just fighters, just regular people, everyday people, yeah, there’s still a possibility for you to lose weight just because calories in, calories out. But metabolically you might not be doing the healthiest thing. Uh, general wellness, you might not be doing a healthiest thing. You, you can see your HR V tank and you can see your rest of heart rate rising, your respiratory rate rising, your sleep going the crap, uh, just chronically inflamed, always hurt or sore or tired or whatever.

(21:18):

And and a lot of this comes down to they really don’t know what they’re, I don’t, I don’t wanna say they don’t know what they’re doing, but they, they don’t know each person individually. So every single person’s different. Every person’s intolerant or allergic to different things and you’re given the same exact plan to every single person. And at the end of the day, you need to get that tested. You need their food allergies, their food intolerances. You need to see what carbs or uh, what macros they burn. What are they burning their, their fats, are they burning their carbs? So you can adjust their macros based on that. Um, you should be using something an oring a whoop. Uh, you watched my interviews, you, you heard me talk about all this. Something to track all your data and your statistics and your metrics to make sure what you’re doing is actually working and improving their general wellness and their health, not just the scale.

Sevan Matossian (22:13):

Why did you, why did you switch from We, we, we dogged the loop a lot on this show just because they’ve had some issues with their 4.0 and they’ve had some misleading advertisements. But the way you’re talking about it is it doesn’t actually matter what the metrics are, it’s just relative to each other. And I like if they did have your heartbeat wrong, all that matters is that it’s consistent, but

Dalton Rosta (22:36):

Yeah, it’s consistently wrong. Let’s say it’s off by two beats per minute all the time. It’s still, you still see what direction it’s going. Right, right. You know, you see an upward trend or a downward trend. Right. Um, so I

Sevan Matossian (22:50):

Why did you switch to the, to the ring from the whoop?

Dalton Rosta (22:52):

Yeah, I was just getting to that. I, uh, the only reason I switched to the ring, so I mean there was a few, I shouldn’t say the only reason, there was a few reasons. The whoop, you wear it on your wrist, but they, they have, you know, the bicep band, you can wear it on your waist. Everything now, whenever I wear it on my bicep, always fly out of it and I got the tightest fucking bi band you can get. I got one that fit me perfectly and then I got a big one, tried ’em all, kept flying out during practice. If I wore around my wrists under my glove, would always flip upside down, never track my workouts on top of all that. It would always break. I went through seven different, seven different loops. If I went into my nightstand drawer right now a lot of them are the 3.0.

(23:29):

But I had two four point ohs before I finally just gave up. I have a crap ton of whoops just sitting in there cuz they have to send me new ones all the time. And then I have to wait for a week and a half, two weeks before I get it. Sometimes it was right before the fight so I wasn’t able to track my calories and my recovery for the last couple weeks of my fight, which bothered me. Um, so I got frustrated with a lot. I actually canceled my membership like twice and then I went back to it cuz I tried like the halo by uh, Amazon and it wasn’t as good. So then I went back to it and then after I stopped using it the last time I got an eight sleep. And uh, that tracks your HR-V and your resting heart rate, but I don’t feel like it’s as accurate at least the HR-v part of it.

(24:09):

So I got the order ring, uh, on top of that, the whoop $30 a month, unless there’s packages you can do 12 months at a time, 18 months at a time, which make it cheaper. But this $300 for the ring and then you get to sit first six months free and after that it’s like five or $6 a month, which it sounds like I’m promoting this shit, which I’m not, I’m not sponsored by them. I can care less who uses which. But for me this made more sense. Um, I think it’s able to take more damage handle a lot more. It’s a little bit more durable.

Sevan Matossian (24:41):

You’ll wear that under your gloves during training?

Dalton Rosta (24:43):

Yes, I do. And the only thing I wouldn’t advise doing is lifting with it on because I lifted with it on and I wasn’t thinking at all. I didn’t take a head, I was kind of being stupid, but I got scratches and scuffs and everything all over the bottom from when I was doing pullups and shit with it on. And it got all jacked up on the bottom, which nobody could see. You could only see the top, but it so bothers me, you know what I mean? Um, so yeah, so between the functionality of it, um, the fact that the whoop kept breaking all the time and then this is cheaper over time. The first year you end up spending 30 bucks a month if you break it down the ring plus the membership and then every year after that it’s like five or $6 a month compared to 30 or 24 whatever, based on what deal you do at whoop.

(25:26):

So it’s saving me a lot of money as well. But I will say one thing, uh, before you take back over, this is not as accurate with my workouts. By, by far, like it’ll, like it won’t be able to track my heart rate over a certain amount. Like whenever I reach my heart rate rates is so high, let’s just stop track and it’ll be like dots and it’ll say no data. And then like sometimes like my workouts where I know for sure I reach max heart rate just because of the laugh. I’m not able to breathe, you know, I’m not able to talk, you know, I’m, I’m gasping for Air Ben over can, can, and I mean I’m in, I’m a fit athlete, you know, I’m in really good shape. Whenever I get to that point, I’m like okay, you know, I’m at max heart rate and I’m definitely in the anaerobic threshold. It’ll say my heart rate was like one 30. So I’m like, okay, where I, I had problems with that, with the whoop a little bit, but at least the whoop would say it was like 1 75 and not one 30. You know what I mean? Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (26:23):

Yeah. Uh, uh, listen, listen, last night I had a white claw. I do not drink white claws. You, you watch your mouth, girl, let me tell you something. I’m in Newport Beach at the California Hormones house and uh, there, there was one in the fridge and I drank it. Don’t, don’t, don’t get, don’t get it twisted. I haven’t had a white claw and

Dalton Rosta (26:44):

This is what I

Sevan Matossian (26:45):

Drink forever lit. Is that caffeine?

Dalton Rosta (26:48):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (26:49):

Are you training soon here, right after the podcast?

Dalton Rosta (26:52):

Yeah, I train at 11 o’clock. Um, I usually drink at 30 minutes before, but I’ve only been doing like one energy drink a day now instead of like two or three like I usually do. Yeah. So I just drink it whenever I feel like in the morning and then I don’t touch anything for the rest of the day.

Sevan Matossian (27:06):

Uh, and and where are you right now? What state are you in?

Dalton Rosta (27:09):

Uh, Florida.

Sevan Matossian (27:10):

Okay. And, and when do you head up to uh, Mohegans son?

Dalton Rosta (27:14):

Uh, Monday night I’ll be, I arrive at like 11:00 PM I was supposed to, they had me leaving at like 7:00 AM but all my teammates were leaving at two and they got to train in the morning and I didn’t. And my coach isn’t gonna be there until Wednesday so I was like, I’m gonna be fucked on the weight cut. So I asked them to switch it and they did.

Sevan Matossian (27:31):

So you go up on Monday, but you don’t fight until Friday?

Dalton Rosta (27:34):

Yeah, but I mean I’m now, I actually like this better. I’m glad they switched it cause I don’t get there until Monday night. I get like, pretty much the whole day back here. I get to cook my meals still and then I don’t get there until late Monday night. As soon as I get there, I’m probably gonna go to sleep. I wake up in the morning, I got Tuesday and Wednesday, you know, to work out. That’s only two days and then I weigh in Thursday morning, you know, so I’m only there for two days and I only gotta worry about killing time for two days cause besides working out, and it’s also gonna make my Tuesday busier since I’m not there on Monday. So I’ll be doing more media shit on Tuesday. So it’ll go by fast. I won’t be thinking about the weight cut as much and uh, I think it’ll be a lot easier.

Sevan Matossian (28:14):

Will you go with your girl? Will she go with you?

Dalton Rosta (28:16):

She’ll, she, uh, comes up on Friday, I think the day of the fight just because of the WWE stuff.

Sevan Matossian (28:26):

Oh right, right. Oh, how is that going for her?

Dalton Rosta (28:28):

It’s going good. She’s getting her name pretty soon.

Sevan Matossian (28:31):

Oh shit.

Dalton Rosta (28:32):

I don’t know. Uh, exactly which one it is. She had a couple ideas, but

Sevan Matossian (28:37):

Holy shit, she’s doing it.

Dalton Rosta (28:39):

Yeah. I don’t wanna be, you know, putting her announcements out there before she’s ready to either.

Sevan Matossian (28:44):

Oh, that is so awesome.

Dalton Rosta (28:45):

That’s big time. That’s

Sevan Matossian (28:47):

Awesome. Is there a lot of synergy between you two in terms of aspirations, pushing hard, just um, your paths in life? Like is there, is there a lot of, like, do you guys work? Like is it, is it great have, is it sounds like she’s an inspirational person in your life. Like she’s just not just sitting around on her ass. She’s a go-getter.

Dalton Rosta (29:10):

She’s definitely a motivated person and she wants to constantly do more. So it’s nice, it’s nice having those people around. That’s how my friends are. And uh, that’s the type of people I like, surround myself with regardless, you know, so she’s, she’s doing great for herself and um, she’s gonna continue to, and she was the same way with CrossFit. She was always, you know, training two, three times a day, you know, working towards her goals. And she didn’t get them before she switched over to the wwe, but you could tell she was working hard to get there.

Sevan Matossian (29:42):

Dalton, are people afraid to fight you?

Dalton Rosta (29:45):

100% bro. <laugh>. 100%. That’s why Romero caught and ducked me like three times before he actually fought me. And then the result is, I mean, you could tell why he didn’t wanna fight me.

Sevan Matossian (29:57):

Is that, is that cool or is it frustrating?
