Hey, I like that room.

Darian Weeks (00:23):

Oh, with the trees and everything?

Sevan Matossian (00:24):

Uh, just, it just looks fun. Like there’s some stuff in there that I wanna look at.

Darian Weeks (00:28):

Yeah, it is.

Sevan Matossian (00:30):

Is that the library?

Darian Weeks (00:31):

It is the library

Sevan Matossian (00:33):

And game room.

Darian Weeks (00:34):

Yeah. Library and game room. It’s creative.

Sevan Matossian (00:37):

Are you a, oh, I think you have like a hair in front of your lens. You see that? Something like on your camera lens? Other side. Oh, yeah. Oh yeah. Much better.

Darian Weeks (00:47):

There we go.

Sevan Matossian (00:48):

I love the old thumb cleanse.

Darian Weeks (00:50):

There you go.

Sevan Matossian (00:53):

Uh, my kids have been playing tons of board games. It, we had like two weeks of just crazy rain here in California. My sons have just gone just full berserk on the board games. It’s kind of cool. Oh

Darian Weeks (01:02):

Yeah. How have they been? They’ve been competing.

Sevan Matossian (01:04):

Yeah. Uh, February 4th, they got their next tournament.

Darian Weeks (01:06):

Good deal.

Sevan Matossian (01:07):

I’m pumped. Good. I’m

Darian Weeks (01:08):

Pumped. They don’t do wrestling. They just do jiu-jitsu. Huh?

Sevan Matossian (01:12):

Uh, well, they do Gia Nogi.

Darian Weeks (01:14):

Okay. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (01:14):

Yeah. So

Darian Weeks (01:16):

That’s pretty exciting. I see you’ve been doing a lot of, uh, you’ve been on the CrossFit mania lately.

Sevan Matossian (01:22):

Gotta keep those numbers. I gotta talk to the base to keep the numbers up.

Darian Weeks (01:26):

I seen that. I seen

Sevan Matossian (01:28):

That. Gotta talk to the base. Keep the numbers up. A

Darian Weeks (01:30):

Couple months ago, I think it was a couple months ago, you had that, uh, that Danielle on there.

Sevan Matossian (01:36):

Yeah, she’s great

Darian Weeks (01:38):

Boy. She’s fucking, she’s built different,

Sevan Matossian (01:43):

Hey, um, there’s this, uh, this other friend of mine has this kid named Tyson bk Uhhuh <affirmative>. And, uh, he’s, uh, he’s getting ready to do the combine and the Senior Bowl. And the senior Bowl is like the, like the All-Star Bowl for, uh, college football. Yeah. And this kid threw 158 touchdown, passes it, uh, and broke the all-time NCAA quarterback touchdown passing record. So he is gonna get drafted into the N F L. It’s so funny. All these people keep sending me all, I keep saying that he’s a division two quarterback, so he is not on anyone’s list. Yeah. And so, like, everywhere you look, you don’t, you can’t find his name, but he is gonna get drafted, I promise you. And, and there’s a very good chance he’s gonna get drafted in the first round and he is gonna become a franchise quarterback. But no one’s ever seen it done before. So everyone’s like, Hey, that’s not true. That’s not true. That’s not true. But you just watched the senior bowl’s coming in February and he’s gonna crush it. But my point, going back to Daniel Brandon is they’re 40 miles apart right now. Yeah. Where she trains and where he’s doing is like his final, like, quarterbacking like, uh, workup before the Senior bowl and the combine, they’re 40 miles apart. So I’m ge I’ve, I’ve been DMing and texting. I’ve been texting both of ’em. I’m gonna try to hook ’em up, you know, for a workout.

Darian Weeks (02:52):


Sevan Matossian (02:52):

For a workout.

Darian Weeks (02:53):


Sevan Matossian (02:54):


Darian Weeks (02:55):

Well, yeah. She, where she, where does she live at?

Sevan Matossian (02:57):

They would make some incredible, um, she’s in, um, he’s doing his final training in Fort Myers, Florida. And she’s in Naples,

Darian Weeks (03:05):

Florida. Okay. That, yeah.

Sevan Matossian (03:07):

So they’re, they’re they’re close to each other. Yeah. The Armenian matchmaker. Yes.

Darian Weeks (03:12):

You’re doing some, yeah. You’re doing so

Sevan Matossian (03:14):

<laugh>. Yeah. Yeah. So

Darian Weeks (03:15):

Freaking breeding, huh?

Sevan Matossian (03:16):

Yeah. Uh, more. I like the kid, I like the story, but I’m telling you Spiegel, I know. It’s, it’s so hard to believe a division Two kid’s gonna do it, but don’t get it twisted, man.

Darian Weeks (03:29):

No, I, I’ve, I’ve seen crazier things happen. And especially he, he, he, if he’s throwing 153 touchdowns, I mean

Sevan Matossian (03:37):

50 58, he broke the all-time NCAA passing record for touchdowns. And it’s like, it’s, you know, like his freshman year I was just had had his dad on his freshman year and his opening game, he threw 518 yards. I mean, he’s just not a normal kid. Yeah. He broke every, he’s broken every record, so

Darian Weeks (03:55):

That is insane. Especially to do it somewhere like Florida. I mean, they have high competition when it comes to football,

Sevan Matossian (04:01):

So, oh, well he played in West Virginia. Oh,

Darian Weeks (04:04):

Okay. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (04:05):

Uh, Savon, could you win a fight against all three of your boys? I could, but I did for the first time have to tap my six-year-old choking out the other day. And I had to tap. And he’s like, did you really have to tap? I’m like, well, I could have reached back there and like, gouge your eyes out. But like, uh, yeah. I had to ta like I felt my Adam’s apple getting like, starting to get like,

Darian Weeks (04:25):

Oh, he’s getting that grip already. That’s

Sevan Matossian (04:27):

Pretty, dude. It was horrible.

Darian Weeks (04:28):

Pretty nu I do, uh, I teach a, uh, a kid’s kickboxing class. Yeah. And, uh, I had a freaking ball last night. I let him do sparring last night. Yeah. Asking me, can we spar each other? Can we spar each other? Um, they’re like, from ages like 14 to like 10. So I’m like, yeah, okay, whatever. You can spar each other. And I have this little, uh, Mexican kid in there. His name’s JR. And he is just a powerhouse. I let him, he’s probably like 11. I let him go against this kid who’s like 14. He’s probably like eight inches taller than him. Got uhhuh, better reach. And he was just getting in there like Mike Tyson, I mean, and throwing overhand for nothing. He, he didn’t throw one body shot. He was just head hunting. And I mean,

Sevan Matossian (05:15):

He was, is there video? I went to your Instagram to see if there’s video of the kids.

Darian Weeks (05:19):

No, next one. I am gonna video cuz these kids, I mean, they get after it. I, I let ’em head gear up and everything and they just go, they just go balls to the wall.

Sevan Matossian (05:28):

It’s anyone cry? Did he make the 14 year old kid cry?

Darian Weeks (05:31):

I’ve had no, he didn’t make the 14 year old kid cry. But I’ve had two girls in there and they were going super hard. I have this girl, Josie, she, she did ballet before she came to me. And

Sevan Matossian (05:42):

So, so she got footwork,

Darian Weeks (05:44):

Bro. She is just, she, if she, if I can keep her going on this, she’ll be the coldest fighter I’ve ever seen. I mean, she’ll listen to me no matter what. I’ll tell her to close one eye, stand on one foot and throw it

Sevan Matossian (05:57):


Darian Weeks (05:57):

And she’ll do it for an hour. You know what I mean? And she has just the best footwork and the best movement I’ve ever seen. And she did make a girl cry. I mean, just straight punches just going down the pipe. The girl was just so frustrated and just started breaking down in tears. I was, I felt bad. But then I was in the back of Juan. I was like, yeah, you’re a dog. Let’s keep you going. You know what I

Sevan Matossian (06:20):

Mean? What do you, what do you think about So my kids just, um, the, where they do jiujitsu, they do a lot of, uh, private training with striking and kicking mm-hmm. <affirmative>. But they just started a class where it’s a class where there’s, um, striking and kicking and, uh, they’ve only been to it three times. It’s brand new class, but they’re sparring in it. And, uh, they, they don’t wear headgear yet. You’re not supposed to punch hard in the face. But they got mouth pieces on and shin guards. And my six-year-old punched this, uh, girl who, who, who he’s known for three years. She’s a gray belt. He’s a white belt, but this is obviously the striking class. And he punched her so hard. He got a good, you know, jab already at six cuz he is been taking it. He punched her in the face so hard that her gloves hit her face and she started crying.

Darian Weeks (07:03):


Sevan Matossian (07:04):

And I looked over at the dad. He didn’t like it. <laugh>. Well, I mean, hey. And what do you think about boys hitting girls like that? Even in the class? Like, I think my sister doesn’t like it.

Darian Weeks (07:15):

I let them in my class. I let ’em, I Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (07:18):

Girl. Is that teaching the wrong thing though? Is that weird? I, I can’t, I can’t get my head kind of wrapped around that.

Darian Weeks (07:22):

This is what you’re teaching them. You, you, you’re teaching them to be able to defend theirself against, there’s not only a female gonna come up and attack them. There’s going to be a man gonna come up to and attack them. So you’re teaching them. If they can’t get hit by a young boy, then what are they gonna do when a man is gonna, you know, take a

Sevan Matossian (07:41):

Picture? Well, I, I, I get why it’s good for the girl, but like, what about the, like, what am I teaching my boy if I’m letting him spar against girls? And don’t get me wrong, I it’s not because I don’t think these girls are capable. Yeah. Like, there’s eight year old girls who beat up my eight year old boy. No problem. It’s not that. It’s just that

Darian Weeks (07:56):

You’re the long term effect on your son. You don’t want him.

Sevan Matossian (07:59):

Yeah. I don’t want him to get into Dana White situation. <laugh>. Yeah. <laugh>. I’m not hating on Dana, but like, it would’ve been so much better if Dana just would’ve run away. Yeah. I’m not hating on him. But

Darian Weeks (08:11):

Dude, in that situation, I will say he is not getting as much back flack on that situation. I thought he would.

Sevan Matossian (08:19):

He’s good. He’s good. He’s skated away. It’s all, it’s over.

Darian Weeks (08:21):

He skated away. Did you hear the interview? He did.

Sevan Matossian (08:23):

Yeah. Yeah.

Darian Weeks (08:24):

He said, what are you gonna do to me? Yeah. You can’t do anything to me. I I you can’t take me away from the UFC cuz it’ll fail. So, you know, I’ll just have to be embarrassed. I’m like, yeah, what you slapp her twice?

Sevan Matossian (08:38):

I, but, but, um, it, it’s, uh, but, but it is right? It’s like, um,

Darian Weeks (08:46):

Yeah, what are you gonna do?

Sevan Matossian (08:47):

What are you gonna do? And, and I just like, it’s so funny that, uh, there as a society, like what more do we want? Like, what would do we want from him? You know what, you know, I, Danielle, Brandon was on here a couple weeks ago and I asked her, I said, Hey, let me show you this video. And we showed her the whole video of, of the fight. Yeah. And she goes, equal rights, equal fights.

Darian Weeks (09:09):

Hey, that’s, I said

Sevan Matossian (09:10):

<laugh>. I was like, damn, you’re gonna get us canceled. She’s like, Hey dude, don’t fucking hit no one unless you’re ready to get cracked.

Darian Weeks (09:18):

I mean, and I’ve seen, I’ve seen stuff instances like that that’s way worse. Um,

Sevan Matossian (09:25):

And you know, they were so drunk, you know, they, that he said, not that it’s a the excuse, but he says, they asked him in one interview, do you remember it? He goes, there’s a lot of stuff I don’t remember from that night. Yeah.

Darian Weeks (09:34):

Yeah. And I mean, this is, this is just a thing when it’s your wife. I guess it’s different, you know, if it was a random woman that just came up and like just clot him, you know what I mean? Yeah. I mean, I could see it more slapping her than, right. Oh, this is the woman that you live with. Right. And you’re gonna slap her in the mouth. Like, and this is why I don’t believe, you know, he is like, oh, it never happened before. The way you slapped her and how fast you slapped her. It’s happened before,

Sevan Matossian (10:06):

Bro. Hey, did you, have you seen the interviews? His mom’s done?

Darian Weeks (10:10):

No, but I

Sevan Matossian (10:11):

Was Oh, no

Darian Weeks (10:12):

Post line.

Sevan Matossian (10:13):

Oh no. I watched the whole interview. Oh, no.

Darian Weeks (10:16):

And she’s dogging him,

Sevan Matossian (10:18):


Darian Weeks (10:19):

She’s like, he beats his wife every

Sevan Matossian (10:21):

Day. It’s the worst shit you, like anyone could say about you, let alone your mom. Like it makes you, you can’t, I was, I went back and f I started hating her. Like, there’s no, there’s nothing I could, there’s nothing you could do that could make me say the shit about my son. That, that she says about Dana. It’s so bad.

Darian Weeks (10:40):

Wow. Yeah, she fucking,

Sevan Matossian (10:42):

It’s, yeah, she dogs him so hard, basically that he’s just been, they’ve been fighting for 30, not that he’s been beating her for 30 years, but that they’ve been straight leaving Marks on each other for 30 years. She basically says that

Darian Weeks (10:53):

Oh. On each other. So it’s, it’s a mutual thing. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (10:56):

They just, Hey, I think he just recently stopped drinking. I mean, he’s been, he’s been as red as a fucking plumb for 20 years.

Darian Weeks (11:03):

Yeah. He has been super

Sevan Matossian (11:06):

Fucking, he looks like he’s juiced up and drinks a lot and just living hard.

Darian Weeks (11:09):

Oh, I, I, I don’t doubt that he, I mean he has no reason not to. You know what I mean? He wanted to get in shape. He,

Sevan Matossian (11:18):

Uh, why suggest you’re, why sev why subject your kids to head trauma at that uh, age? So the sparring that my kids do, they don’t punch each other in the head if it’s just, it’s just tap. It’s just, uh, tapping in the head What? But, uh, but, but you, I kids do get the wind knocked out of them or pushed down or, yeah. It’s, um, I, I’ve seen some pretty hard push kicks to the front where kids get doubled over.

Darian Weeks (11:41):

I have, yeah. I have one kid that he’s about nine years old. He does not wanna spar anymore because he took a just straight upper uppercut to the gut. And I mean, he was curled up in a ball. And every time we spar he is like, I just want to go home. So I just do like some little side play sparring with him. But yeah, kids, I mean, kids need to learn this. I mean, kids are fighting sooner and sooner in school every day, you know what I mean? Kids are getting picked on. Kids are getting jerked around. I mean, do you want your kid to be the guy who is crying in the principal’s office or you want the kid to be like, well he shouldn’t have messed with me. And the one who’s bloody the other kids noses. You know, it’s, it’s, you know, apples are oranges. You know,

Sevan Matossian (12:26):

If, if my kids are, if, if my kids do this until they’re 16 and it’s, yeah, it’s three blue belts and, and, uh, who have, uh, 10 years of striking and kicking under their belt

Darian Weeks (12:38):


Sevan Matossian (12:39):

Will be a horrible situation for anybody.

Darian Weeks (12:42):

For anybody. Man or woman. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (12:45):

So I, I don’t know, but no, I don’t want any head trauma for my kids. I, I, you know, I don’t, I don’t even let my kids do skateboarding every single day and they’re doing big drop-ins now and that’s what scares the shit outta me. I don’t want their head to get

Darian Weeks (12:58):

Yeah. Rattled skateboarding’s never been my forte. I’ve always busted a face open or anything doing skateboarding. They’re pretty good. You should videotape them and put it on your social media.

Sevan Matossian (13:10):

The Oh, I do the skateboarding? Yeah. Oh, I nonstop.

Darian Weeks (13:14):

Good deal. Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (13:16):

Nonstop. Here I’ll show you. Uh, I’ll show you, uh, something real quick. What do you think about, while I pull this up? What do you think about, uh, God, there’s so much I want to ask you about. I tripping on, I’m tripping on Ningo. Like in a good way. Oh yes. Like in a good way. I’m like, happy for him.

Darian Weeks (13:34):

I’m super happy that he did that cuz he had the power, you know,

Sevan Matossian (13:38):

He had the power. Is he gonna fight Tyson Fury?

Darian Weeks (13:43):

To be honest, in boxing, I don’t think France and Nagano should do that

Sevan Matossian (13:47):

Even for the payday.

Darian Weeks (13:50):

What are you sacrificing though? You sacrificing the fact that you’re the most dangerous man in the world and then you go in there with someone like Tyson Fury and he just peels you apart. I mean, peels you apart

Sevan Matossian (14:01):

20 million. Well, 20, 20 million.

Darian Weeks (14:04):

I understand that. But I mean, he could get the same, he get the same deal anywhere now since he was the, he was the champ of ufc.

Sevan Matossian (14:11):

So fight someone lesser and try to get 20 million. Like fight Jake Paul for 20 million.

Darian Weeks (14:16):

Anybody he fights he’ll get $20 million. Anybody he fights.

Sevan Matossian (14:19):

Wow. Okay. Okay. Fuck it. So, okay, so let, let me go back a second. So, uh, because I’ll take your word for that. So yes, boxing, not, uh, Tyson,

Darian Weeks (14:29):

Not off the gate. Right?

Sevan Matossian (14:31):

Not because not even ruez. Not even that short little Mexican fat kid that kid’s dangerous.

Darian Weeks (14:36):

Oh yeah,

Sevan Matossian (14:37):

Yeah. That kid’s really dangerous. That

Darian Weeks (14:39):

Boy’s for sure. You know,

Sevan Matossian (14:41):

He sat, uh, Anthony Joshua down.

Darian Weeks (14:44):


Sevan Matossian (14:44):

And Embarra embarrassed that beautiful man.

Darian Weeks (14:46):

And it’s, uh, I don’t know, you know, it’s, it’s different with boxing gloves, but still, you know, I mean, I think boxers can take punches. Not to say Franton Ando couldn’t knock somebody cold, cold out, but he’s, he just don’t have the technique. They have, you know, they’ll get picked apart easily.

Sevan Matossian (15:05):

I I’m gonna show you a couple videos. Uh, so this is, this is, uh, just, uh, just training some, uh, just like precision jumping, right?

Darian Weeks (15:14):

Ooh, dang. That’s pretty tough.

Sevan Matossian (15:16):

Right? Boom. What? And then just showing just like, you know,

Darian Weeks (15:21):

Big hops.

Sevan Matossian (15:22):

Yep. And then, uh, with the striking coach.

Darian Weeks (15:27):

Oh, okay. Oh,

Sevan Matossian (15:29):

Right. Got the wife beater on.

Darian Weeks (15:35):

Dang. Are you gonna be okay? Savon in your house? They

Sevan Matossian (15:38):

Might. No, no. I already had, I got sidekick the other day and I, I said, dude, you’re, you’re gonna feel horrible if you fucking like, injure me for life. Uh, biggest, biggest vert wall at the skate park.

Darian Weeks (15:48):


Sevan Matossian (15:49):

11 feet. 11 feet. Look at the agile like a cat. Boom. What? Yeah, that was yesterday.

Darian Weeks (15:56):

That’s tough.

Sevan Matossian (15:58):

Yeah, he’s pumped that that instructor’s been there for three years at that skate park. It’s his first student ever to do that vert wall. That’s pretty pumped.

Darian Weeks (16:07):

Oh, he’s tough. Yeah. Oh, these kids are gonna be just,

Sevan Matossian (16:12):

And lemme show you this too, just a, like this is, this is probably, I don’t, this is like a, I don’t know, three months ago. He’s so much better now, but this is just his, his tennis game is ridiculous too. Crazy top spin and just, yeah,

Darian Weeks (16:26):

Dude, you’re gonna have just a trillion dollars when you’re old.

Sevan Matossian (16:32):

Maybe. I don’t know. I don’t know if they’ll ever get, if they’ll, oh, here, here, you’re gonna like this too Dari. You

Darian Weeks (16:37):

Look at this. No way. They won’t, they won’t do something. Look

Sevan Matossian (16:40):

At that. Look at Right, right. And left handed. And I

Darian Weeks (16:42):

Coordinate nuts.

Sevan Matossian (16:43):

Yeah. So proud of these

Darian Weeks (16:46):

Boys. No matter what they do, they’ll, they’ll be good at it.

Sevan Matossian (16:51):

And, uh, the, their younger brothers are a year ahead of them.

Darian Weeks (16:56):

Oh, really?

Sevan Matossian (16:57):

Yeah. Crazy, right?

Darian Weeks (17:00):

Oh, man, Savannah, if you, I mean, I know you can’t push as a parent,

Sevan Matossian (17:04):

But No, I push, I push.

Darian Weeks (17:07):

I’m just saying if they ever start to, I push prop and they’re like, oh, I don’t wanna do this anymore. You say, no, you shut your mouth. You do this.

Sevan Matossian (17:14):

You know what, Darien, I think I cracked a code on that thing. I j the other day. I just, I just, um, I just realized this. So when I was in school, you can push kids to do whatever, whatever you want them to do, as long as you’re setting them up for success. As long as you know that you’ll be disciplined with them and strict and follow through and, you know, they’ll eventually succeed. So let’s say if your kid does not wanna ride skateboard, but you take him to the skate park every day and tell him he has to skate for 20 minutes, sooner or later he’s gonna succeed. And on top of that, he’s gonna walk with, holy shit, I succeeded at something I didn’t wanna do,

Darian Weeks (17:51):


Sevan Matossian (17:52):

But if you put your kid in fucking public school and at the third grade he falls behind and then six months, and by the fourth grade, he’s a year behind. And by the fifth grade, he’s two years behind you. Now he has to learn to cheat his way from fifth grade all the way to graduation in his senior year. And he’s been taught that he’s worthless. That’s what happened to me. And so I was never, I was never set up to succeed. I couldn’t succeed because I, I, I fell behind. That’s why homeschooling so much better. Kids just work at their own pace.

Darian Weeks (18:23):

Yeah, I agree.

Sevan Matossian (18:24):

And, and so I was pushed, I I I I fell behind and I could never catch up. So I was in a situation where I was destined to fail. Fail. And I was taught that cheating is the way, and that the harder you try it doesn’t matter. The more likely you are to fail. Because once you fall behind in public school, you’re fucked.

Darian Weeks (18:36):

You’re Yeah. It’s, it’s

Sevan Matossian (18:38):


Darian Weeks (18:38):

Fucked. Yeah. They, they, they put, they put us on a, like a little computer class and that’s where you’re stuck at if you fail behind. That’s how I high school, two years of just on a computer trying to figure out all the information that other kids already know.

Sevan Matossian (18:54):

Yeah. I fucking, that sucked. Yeah. But, but, uh, if you, um, uh, what is this bullshit down here? I forget someone is such young kids because he’s so old. I eat Did Dick,

Darian Weeks (19:07):

Oh fuck, he

Sevan Matossian (19:09):

<laugh>. Uh, yeah, I have a, I have a children’s training program. I have a really basic one on Sugar wad. I never talk about it, but you can go there and buy it and see all the little things that I, I, I, uh, I do with them.

Darian Weeks (19:21):

That’s pretty dope.

Sevan Matossian (19:23):

Okay. Uh, let, let’s listen to, uh, Mr. Nnu. Here, here we go.

Unknown (19:27):

That’s, that’s how I feel about it. I just, it’s just unfortunate that we didn’t come to a term, which I wish we could. We could’ve, but it is what it is, you know? But, uh, as an independent contractor, I have to look up to myself and do what’s right for me. And everyone, everyone out there should do the same for themself.

Sevan Matossian (19:54):

And look, that’s, and look, could you hear that? Yeah. And look what Izzy, Izzy and Johnny Walker look at all the support he got.

Darian Weeks (20:04):

Yeah. That surprised me. Especially from Izzy. I’d expect everybody else but Izzy’s like in love with the U F C and Dana White and everybody. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (20:16):

So, so what do you think happens? Give me the prediction. What, what hap do we see Ngan ever back in the ufc? Uh, I heard that they offered him, Dana says they offered him the biggest, uh, contract of any, like, he would’ve been the highest paid fighter in the history of the U ffc if he would’ve resigned higher than, uh, Luke Brasner. What? Whatever that juice Step w w guy

Darian Weeks (20:39):

Got. Yeah, Brock Lesner. He said, yeah,

Sevan Matossian (20:41):

Brock Lesner

Darian Weeks (20:43):

<laugh>, uh,

Sevan Matossian (20:44):

Luke Prosner.

Darian Weeks (20:46):

I see. I, I don’t know. I don’t know if I see ’em in the UFC no more. I see ’em honestly, being able to take a seven or eight figure contract from P Ffl or one champion. I mean, they will pay as they did Demetrius Johnson and I just learned this the other day. Did you know Demetrius Johnson for his first three title defenses was only paid no south of 30,000 and $30,000?

Sevan Matossian (21:13):

I didn’t know that. I, if you would’ve asked me, I would’ve said it was like 250,000. I knew it was really little. I knew it was bizarre that like the greatest fighter ever in the UFC that no one ever talks about got

Darian Weeks (21:23):

Nothing. Literally he Yeah. South of $30,000, you know what I’m saying? Like what McGregor is getting 2 million just to show up. Yeah. And then when they did pay him 150,070 5,000, they took away all of his pay-per viewpoints so he can no longer make pay money off of pay-per-view buy. And that’s why he went to one Champion and one champion gave him an eight figure contract. I’m talking about they pay him probably

Sevan Matossian (21:55):

They gave him an eight figure contract. I

Darian Weeks (21:57):

Mean, he’s filthy rich, filthy. He, they bought, they bought him from the UFC for like $10 million. They Wow. They bought out his contract

Sevan Matossian (22:08):

And he didn’t even do so good over there, huh?

Darian Weeks (22:11):

Uh, well, he got, he got beat once, but he’s he’s the champ right now.

Sevan Matossian (22:14):

Oh, he is.

Darian Weeks (22:15):

He got knocked out cold. Because what they do is they do knees to the head on a grounded opponent. You’re allowed to do that. Yeah. And that’s what he went to sleep with a knee to the jaw and just, I mean, went to the old

Sevan Matossian (22:26):

Yawn alma, uh, move is there.

Darian Weeks (22:29):

Yeah. But they, they freaking, uh, I mean he’s filthy rich over there and that’s what I see him doing because these other promotion wants to be, want to be in the UFC spot. And if they can get the fighters and the caliber of that, they will take over. You know, it’s only a matter of time before, you know, the UFC has to, you know, run away. You know what I mean?

Sevan Matossian (22:52):

Hey, I wonder if they lose, I wonder if that’s, uh, like part of Dana’s, like whatever his magic recipe is, they the fact that he’s able to keep all these people. I, you know what though? When, when you talk about the, the PFL and, uh, what was the other one? Bear knuckle.

Darian Weeks (23:07):

Uh, no one Champion.

Sevan Matossian (23:08):

What? Yeah, but, but I thought there were two that you mentioned in the US anyway. Or even Bellator. The promotion is so fucking, um, like there’s no hype.

Darian Weeks (23:19):


Sevan Matossian (23:20):

It’s so, it’s, it’s already so hard like finding hype about the ufc. It’s so hard finding hype about, uh, Bellator fights.

Darian Weeks (23:27):

Yeah. When you talk to other people around, they don’t even know what these other promotions are. Right?

Sevan Matossian (23:32):


Darian Weeks (23:32):

You’ll talk to a normal person who, who’s not in the everyday fight scene, you know, and they don’t know what P ffl, they don’t hardly know what Bellator is. You know, they don’t know, but you say UFC and everyone knows, you know what I mean? Right. And that’s what these people are chasing to get after. They’re chasing to be that spotlight. Um, and all they need is people like Fran Neu, everybody knows who Fran Neu is, right? He’s a big African strong man who knocks people out. Bet you put him in P Ffl. Now p f has the big strong African guy, you know what I mean? So now everybody’s tuning in to see what happened. So it’s uh,

Sevan Matossian (24:10):

Why do you think Ngan is so good?

Darian Weeks (24:15):

He’s from Africa? Shit, I don’t know. <laugh>, uh, I don’t know. He’s just built different. Look at him. He’s just built different. Did you see him, have you seen that video where he’s, he’s back at home in Africa in his mom’s house, dirt floor eating out of what looks like a freaking bowl carved outta wood.

Sevan Matossian (24:36):

No, but I believe it. I mean, you just look at this, I I spent a lot of time in Africa, probably at least six months in my life. And this is the total, this is the scene there.

Darian Weeks (24:45):

Yeah. I mean they,

Sevan Matossian (24:47):

This is to this. They nailed it. This is like just how people hang out. I mean, I, you don’t see everyone jumping around like that, but like, just kids hanging out and playing and everyone’s barefoot and shirts off and

Darian Weeks (24:57):

Yeah. And just built different, you know? Yeah. And I mean, maybe that’s why, I don’t know. He’s just, he, it’s just genetics. It’s just like another Mike Tyson, you know what I mean? You’re not gonna, you’re not gonna run across these guys, but once in every 20 years. And he’s, it,

Sevan Matossian (25:18):

Um, IAL, I, I I wonder how much of his, his success, uh, oh, how about this? This is a great idea by Tyler. I paid money to see an Ning fight, fight, uh, half door.

Darian Weeks (25:29):

Oh yeah. That

Sevan Matossian (25:30):

Would be,

Darian Weeks (25:32):

That would be, I would, I’d pay money for that too.

Sevan Matossian (25:34):

Yeah. He kills half door, right?

Darian Weeks (25:36):

I think so. Yeah. I mean his, his touchability is just insane. I’ve

Sevan Matossian (25:42):

Seen him. What’s that? What’s that mean? Touchability

Darian Weeks (25:44):

Like, he, he only needs to touch you. I’ve seen him throw four punches, miss all of them, and then maybe scrape by with just, just by the chin on the fifth and the dude’s asleep. It’s against, uh, Roth Shire that, that other African guy, he went against that Roth Shire guy, I mean, put him to sleep with. He barely touched him. And I mean, put him to sleep.

Sevan Matossian (26:06):

I remember his early fights like that. Like yeah, basically he had the touch of death. Literally. You’re, you’re dead.

Darian Weeks (26:11):

You’re done. Yeah. I give him props. The only person who was able to survive it was, um, who’s that firefighter? I forget.

Sevan Matossian (26:19):

Oh, oh, oh, yeah. Um,

Darian Weeks (26:22):

What’s his name? He’s about, he was supposed to fight, be intoxicated in John Jones too, but he didn’t

Sevan Matossian (26:27):

Used to be. He, he’s, he’s running his mouth a little bit. Mechi Mik Mechi.

Darian Weeks (26:32):

Yep. Mechi. Yeah. Steppe.

Sevan Matossian (26:34):

Steppe. Yeah.

Darian Weeks (26:35):

Yeah. Uh,

Sevan Matossian (26:36):

And, and you know, Derek Lewis, uh, uh, got a win on him even though it was, I mean, for five rounds they just walked around, no punches thrown. But

Darian Weeks (26:43):

They, both of ’em are scared.

Sevan Matossian (26:45):

Scared to death. Right. <laugh> <laugh>.

Darian Weeks (26:48):

Derek Lewis has lost like 40 pounds walking around

Sevan Matossian (26:52):

In that, in that fight or just in general? No,

Darian Weeks (26:54):

Like lately. He’s like,

Sevan Matossian (26:57):

He got skinny.

Darian Weeks (26:58):

Almost skinny. Yeah. He looks super damn thin. Yeah. I was like surprised.

Sevan Matossian (27:04):

Gotten into meth or, or he is working out.

Darian Weeks (27:06):

Oh shit. I hope ain’t meth, but, uh, maybe he’s, you know, taking his workout seriously. I don’t think he’s taking one fight camp serious since he’s been the U ffc.

Sevan Matossian (27:16):

He was, he was doing, um, he was doing CrossFit for a while

Darian Weeks (27:20):

And then maybe what it is,

Sevan Matossian (27:22):

What is his Instagram? Beast? Something?

Darian Weeks (27:25):

Yeah. Beast something. I can’t remember what it is.

Sevan Matossian (27:27):

Beast ufc.

Darian Weeks (27:28):

Yeah, there it is. Yeah, that’s it.

Sevan Matossian (27:32):

God, he’s got a funny Instagram, uh,

Darian Weeks (27:34):

Piece. He’s so hilarious dude. And every post he posts on there, he is like, he’s okay. That’s all. Yeah. That’s all he, that’s all he posts.

Sevan Matossian (27:43):

Hey, he does look, he, I I, he’s not standing here, but he looks great here.

Darian Weeks (27:47):

Yeah. And there’s just, there’s a picture that that surfaced online that was like, he looked, I mean he looks skinny. I mean, you could probably just type in Derrick Lewis freaking loses weight and then the picture will pop

Sevan Matossian (28:03):

Up. Skinny Derek Lewis.

Darian Weeks (28:05):

Skinny Derek Lewis. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (28:07):

Let’s see what he is got here. Okay. This is one of those. He’s okay. You think a car drives into the window?

Darian Weeks (28:12):

Something happens. Something fucked up happens. He has the fucking best.

Sevan Matossian (28:18):

I I guess you need the audio for that one.

Darian Weeks (28:22):

Maybe not. Something’s gonna come through that window. I feel like. Oh shit. I don’t even know what’s in there.

Sevan Matossian (28:30):

Oh, this guy’s just losing his shit.

Darian Weeks (28:32):

Oh, there’s a squirrel in there or something.

Sevan Matossian (28:37):

Oh, damn,

Darian Weeks (28:39):


Sevan Matossian (28:40):

Sevan Matossian (29:26):
