Sevan Matossian (01:30):

I’m just settling into my own. I’m just like, I’m like, holy shit. This is like crazy. I’m, I feel like just a different person now talking to Josh. Like I’m, I’m, I’m less, like, a little less insecure, a little more just like, ah.

Josh Bridges (01:42):

Yeah, I can see that. I mean, you’re big time. Your number one, number one podcast

Josh Bridges (02:01):

A couple cuties in the, in the chat now all of a sudden. I don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (02:05):

<laugh>. Uh, dude, you’re killing it. I, I I took a long, uh, stroll through your, uh, Instagram. Uh, you’re killing it. Yeah. You’re the man. You’re, I can’t believe how hard you’re still going. I can’t believe how fucking great you to look. When’s the last time we you were on the show six months ago?

Josh Bridges (02:23):

Anyone know? Uh, actually, I don’t know. I have no idea. It’s been a while.

Sevan Matossian (02:27):

Yeah, it’s been a while.

Josh Bridges (02:29):

I can find out.

Sevan Matossian (02:31):

Look, $10. I already made $10 off you. I’m like, I like your $10 more than I figured.

Josh Bridges (02:36):

And this isn’t the Josh and Josh and Savan show. This is just the Savan show.

Sevan Matossian (02:39):

Yeah. This is just, oh, yeah. I didn’t even write. Oh my God. I didn’t even think about that. That’s how presumptuous I’ve become. You

Josh Bridges (02:47):

Are, you are, you’re a real char. You’re, you know, you’re a real pu piece of work.

Sevan Matossian (02:52):

Hey, so what Josh is referring to guys is this, there was a station that was Josh, Matt and Savon, and then it was Josh and Sev. And then this is the first time where I invited him on and I didn’t even think of scheduling it on that station. You can

Josh Bridges (03:03):

Even invite me on. I invited myself on

Sevan Matossian (03:05):

<laugh>. Well, that’s just cuz I’m not fully confident yet.

Josh Bridges (03:09):


Sevan Matossian (03:11):

Tell me, uh, uh, why don’t, why don’t, what do I want to hear about first? Um, you’re married now?

Josh Bridges (03:17):

No, I’m not married yet. I’m engaged. Oh, married. Yep.

Sevan Matossian (03:20):

And, and, and are you’re living together?

Josh Bridges (03:23):


Sevan Matossian (03:23):

And you’re loving that.

Josh Bridges (03:25):

Yeah, I was very happy.

Sevan Matossian (03:26):


Josh Bridges (03:27):

Shit. It’s been, it’s been, it’s been great. You know,

Sevan Matossian (03:30):

H how old are you?

Josh Bridges (03:31):


Sevan Matossian (03:33):

God. Was that, was that, um, was part of you kind of dreading that?

Josh Bridges (03:38):

What the living together?

Sevan Matossian (03:40):

No, not that. Just starting a new relationship. Just like, oh fuck, I gotta get someone, get like, I, because I, I think about it sometimes. Don’t tell anyone, but I think sometimes What if my wife died and I had to like, start a new relationship? <laugh>, like I’d become a fucking, I’d become a monk.

Josh Bridges (03:55):


Sevan Matossian (03:56):

The thought of getting to know another person again and like having to like learn the shit with the door open and all that. Again, I don’t ever wanna have to go through any of that again. <laugh>, you know, you know what I mean? Like, I don’t wanna do that again.

Josh Bridges (04:07):

Yeah. Yeah. I mean it’s definitely, I don’t know. I don’t even know how to describe it, but yeah, it’s been a gr it’s been an awesome process. I’ve loved it every second of it, every step of the way.

Sevan Matossian (04:20):

And then, and then on the flip side, I, I see my, how my, my boys are now, my oldest is eight, and I see him experiencing feelings and emotions that I’m like, holy shit, I haven’t had those feelings or emotions in 30 fucking years. Like, just really intense, passionate emotions. You know what I mean? Yeah. Like a girl looks at him wrong and he cries. And part of me is like, God, I wonder if Josh is going through that again at 39 because you start a new relationship. Like I, that that feeling of like, uh, um, meeting a girl, it’s always around girls.

Josh Bridges (04:52):

Uh, I don’t know about that. I, you know what? I have had that same thought where you’re talking about when it comes to, um, CrossFit and working out. I used to have these like overwhelming like rushes when I do good in a workout, right. Like, uh, the celebrations. Um, and I could get those in training a lot. And I don’t get those anymore. Like, I don’t like get crazy fired up if I hit a lift or if I finish a workout really fast, I like, and I do train alone a lot more than I had been in the past eight year or seven years. Um, but yeah, like, I just don’t, I don’t have those like, like fiery moments as much anymore. And I miss ’em. I do. Like, I remember I actually was, had that thought driving somewhere not that long ago, maybe a week or two ago. And I was like, man, I don’t have that. And like those that, that feeling you get when you hit a lift that you wanted to hit or whatever, I also don’t do as, as oil lifting as well. So that was where you typically got a lot of those feelings.

Sevan Matossian (06:02):

But how about, how about those feelings being in a new relationship with a girl? Were those like feelings like you hadn’t experienced in 20 years?

Josh Bridges (06:10):


Sevan Matossian (06:11):

Like nervous about the first case? Yeah,

Josh Bridges (06:13):

For sure.

Sevan Matossian (06:14):

Who lean in and of course not even that. Just kind of like, I’m even talking about more childish shit. Like just writing their name in your head.

Josh Bridges (06:22):

<laugh>, I dunno,

Sevan Matossian (06:23):

Carol, she

Josh Bridges (06:24):


Sevan Matossian (06:25):

Or just being excited. Just being, you didn’t do any of that.

Josh Bridges (06:28):

I don’t know about that.

Sevan Matossian (06:30):

You didn’t just, you don’t, like when you were in the dating phase, you didn’t have like a piece of paper and a pencil out. Like, and you’re just like, oh, j

Josh Bridges (06:37):

O s

Sevan Matossian (06:38):

<laugh>. I’m talking to Josh. Josh,

Josh Bridges (06:40):

Yeah. I don’t know man. You, I think, I don’t think we’re on the same page. Be

Sevan Matossian (06:44):

No <laugh>. <laugh>. Hey, you didn’t, you didn’t cover your books when you were a kid, uh, in that brown, like you took a paper bag.

Josh Bridges (06:50):

Yep. I know what you’re talking

Sevan Matossian (06:51):

About. Okay. And then there was a girl, like you would write her name all over the, all over the, all over the book. All over the brown paper bag. You didn’t have that?

Josh Bridges (06:58):

I don’t, I remember seeing girls do that for guys, but I don’t remember the

Sevan Matossian (07:01):

Dude seeing it. I’m done with this conversation. I’m done

Josh Bridges (07:04):

With <laugh>. Uh,

Sevan Matossian (07:07):

Yeah, Andrew, uh, Soloway. I can’t tell if he’s got a dog under his arm or a dead animal. I don’t know what’s going on there. I I got to meet Josh Bridges in Jacks, I think. Uh, what’s Jack’s

Josh Bridges (07:19):

Jackson? That was last, uh, last year at the Go Rock, um, event.

Sevan Matossian (07:24):

Uh, made my day. Uh, thank you for being a good dude.

Josh Bridges (07:27):

Yeah. He probably got to meet Sydnee too. She was there with me the whole time.

Sevan Matossian (07:31):

That’s your girl? Yeah. Uh, is this Josh? Uh, uh, announcing his comeback for masters with Rich?

Josh Bridges (07:37):

No, I’m not. I didn’t do, I didn’t, I did the open workout, but I didn’t, I didn’t, uh, um, pay

Sevan Matossian (07:45):

Is the You didn’t pay what? Oh. Oh, gotcha.

Josh Bridges (07:47):

You didn’t like, I didn’t like, I didn’t like, uh, sign up

Sevan Matossian (07:49):

For the open. Why? I didn’t, I didn’t do either. I didn’t pay or do it. Uh, why did you, uh,

Josh Bridges (07:54):


Sevan Matossian (07:55):

Why, why didn’t you sign up? Why, why didn’t you sign up? You’re CrossFitter through and through. You’re always, you know, pushing the methodology.

Josh Bridges (08:00):

I still have. Um, I am very much so. Uh, and I, but I still have some limitations. I’m actually, I just went and saw my doctor up in Veil from my elbow. Um, I just, I’m just getting tired of like, positions not being able to get into certain positions with my elbow. I can’t really go overhead like this thruster workout this this weekend. This weekend. I won’t, like, I don’t go overhead very often. Um, with either a push press I can do. Rogue has this really cool bar. The m what is it? The m um, shit, I can’t think of the actual, can you look it up for me, Matt? Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. The m the one that has all the different members. And I can hold a bar like this and I can press that overhead a lot easier, but like, getting a bar like this just, it really hurts my elbow, so I don’t, I don’t jerk. Um, or push press or I’ll snatch. It’s weird to snatch cuz it goes directly overhead is all right. But

Sevan Matossian (08:53):

Show me, show me, uh, which arm and what position you’re not digging.

Josh Bridges (08:56):

Like this elbow. Yeah, my left elbow. Yeah. So like, that’s like, see am I clean? Can you kind of see

Sevan Matossian (09:01):

It? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I can, we can see it. <laugh>. <laugh>.

Josh Bridges (09:05):

Yeah. It’s like, it

Sevan Matossian (09:06):

Doesn’t, if you’re going for symmetry, we can see it.

Josh Bridges (09:08):

So the uh, um, that one right there, the Rogue, uh, mgs four. Yeah. That thing’s awesome. That’s actually allows me to go overhead with like, strict press. Uh, and so that’s the only bar that like, doesn’t crush my elbow when I go overhead

Sevan Matossian (09:27):

Because it’s that neutral

Josh Bridges (09:28):

Grip, right? Yeah, exactly. It’s different grip, right? I’m not like here. I’m not trying to get it down onto my shoulders. Um, and in place. Cuz that thing actually sits off your chest and has that, uh, it’s not a perfect line either. It kind of has that curvature and so it goes up, it just sits, it sits really nice and it’s helped a lot actually with my shoulder.

Sevan Matossian (09:47):

And, and, um, uh, you’re done. Uh, yeah. Dear Bill and Katie. Thank you. <laugh>. I think Katie’s with a c. It is. Uh, but, um, thank you. Uh, thank you. Uh, Brandon. Um, Brandon Lakehawk. No, he’s foreign. It doesn’t, doesn’t count. He wouldn’t know Lakehawk. Um, are, are you done trying to, are you in a stage in your life where you’re not fixing shit, you’re just waiting for it to heal on its own? Like surgeries and shit like that?

Josh Bridges (10:12):

So I am, I am gonna try to get, I’m gonna do one more surgery on this elbow. Um, I went out and saw my doctrine veil. Like these, the doctor I go to is in the Steadman Clinic. It’s basically a world renowned orthopedic surgeon’s office. Um, if you walk through the halls of the office, it’s literally go walking down a hall of fame of every athlete that’s ever been injured in any professional sport. Like my doctor did Tom Brady surgery. He did Edelman’s surgery. He did, uh, Gronkowski surgery. He was the

Sevan Matossian (10:39):

Who’s Edel? Who’s Edelman?

Josh Bridges (10:40):

Edelman was the wide receiver for the Patriots. Oh, okay. Um, you know, he’s, he’s worked on some multimillion dollar like joints and so, uh, you know, and he was, he was also the doc, the orthopedic surgeon for the seal teams when I was in. And so like,

Sevan Matossian (11:00):

Oh shit. Is that how you know him?

Josh Bridges (11:02):

I met, I did meet him back then. I didn’t realize he was at the Steedman clinic when I initially in 19, when I went there, uh, for my knee, uh, I didn’t re realize that that’s where he was at. But then once we reconnected it was like awesome. So Matt preventer, Matt pro Preventer’s not gonna actually do my elbow, um, because he’s not an elbow guy. He does knees and shoulders and then, uh, but he has a good buddy there at the sed clinic named, uh, Dr. Hackett, who’s gonna

Sevan Matossian (11:28):

Oh, that’s a tough name’s name.

Josh Bridges (11:31):


Sevan Matossian (11:31):

A tough name, brother. That’s

Josh Bridges (11:32):

What I said. I was like, damn. What a, a surgeon’s

Sevan Matossian (11:35):

Josh Bridges (11:46):

Fuck. I know, man. I know. So yeah, there he is. He’s the man brother. If you guys knees are

Sevan Matossian (11:52):

Up or knee, I’m good. I’m good. My knees all fucked up. Knee are shoulders, right? Last 24 hours. Hey,

Josh Bridges (11:57):

Sevan Matossian (11:58):

I mean, and it meant you’re like, you’re, I mean, you look really fucking good. You look like you look more like a UFC fighter now than, than a CrossFitter. I mean, you look fucking like an, you look more like an athlete, which is kind of crazy than you ever have in your life. Have you lost weight? You look small. Like you look smaller and more capable.

Josh Bridges (12:26):

I, I ha I, you know what, the first time I checked my weight was literally like three days ago. And I was, I thought that I hadn’t lost any weight because I think on the one of the podcasts,

Sevan Matossian (12:34):

You look like an action figure. You used to be so fucking buff and muscle bound. Like, more like Noah. Yeah. And now you’re kind of like, what, what

Sevan Matossian (12:45):

Josh Bridges (12:49):

Yeah, I, uh, I definitely, I stepped on the scale a few days ago for the first time in God, I couldn’t even tell you. I, I, I don’t really care too much about weight. Um, more about based on feel. But, uh, I, I weighed 1 65, which I normally weighed around 1 70, 1 72. And so I have leaned out a little bit. Um, but I’m eating the carnivore, the carnivore diet. I’ve been doing it for over a year now.

Sevan Matossian (13:12):

Hey, your skin looks different.

Josh Bridges (13:14):

Like once every six months.

Josh Bridges (15:41):

Ozone probably. Yeah. It depends on how, it also depends on like how dirty you get into it. Like, I do get into mine straight outta the sauna, pretty sweaty a lot. And so, um, I haven’t had to change it. I’ve only had it for two months. Um, and I haven’t had to change the water yet.

I’m gonna say something. You,

Josh Bridges (16:39):

It’s 25 out

Sevan Matossian (16:41):

Really weird here. You don’t feel like, um, you get so tense in there. Like you could injure yourself getting into a cold tub. Like I feel like if I got in that thing first thing in the morning, like I could throw my back out. <laugh>. I’m not joking. Like I would tense up so much that my, my fucking back would go out.

Josh Bridges (16:56):

When you get in there, you just have to, I mean, you could, I actually, anytime I feel really, really tight if I get in that cold tub and I think the same thing you’re, that you’re thinking like, I might, I might injure myself because I’m like, like, uh, you know, you are a little tight at first. Yeah. But then I just like relax and literally like, you only have to stay in for like two minutes and then the moment I get out,

Sevan Matossian (17:25):

That’s an eternity. I

Josh Bridges (17:26):

Feel a million times better.

Sevan Matossian (17:28):

I’m sure. I’m sure. I’m sure. I’m sure. Maybe just you’re not as strong as me and you’re not capable of injuring yourself. Like I’m really, I

Josh Bridges (17:36):

Can’t flex. I can’t flex as

Sevan Matossian (17:37):

Josh Bridges (18:06):

Yeah. I can see that.

Sevan Matossian (18:07):

You know what I mean? Just want, I’m like really cold. You want me to do cold

Josh Bridges (18:11):

<laugh>? I tell, I’ll tell you what man, I like hot showers. Like I’m not this guy who’s just like a, I’m not a nutcase. I’m not a psychopath. Right. I love hot showers, but man, when I started doing cold tubs, the way you feel after you get out is, is crazy.

Sevan Matossian (18:24):

Yeah. There is obviously some chemical release, right?

Josh Bridges (18:26):

Yeah. That dopamine release that, um, it’s, uh,

Sevan Matossian (18:31):

Have all that, of all that shit. That’s the only one that I’ve like, you know, they’re like, Hey, take this pill and after 12 months you’ll feel better. It’s elderberry and blah, blah, blah. <laugh>. Yeah. Right? Yes. But that, um, maybe the carnivore diet and, but ice bath for sure. It’s like, I, I don’t know what your drug experiences are, but it, it really is like, holy shit, am I on drugs for a half hour? When you get out, something’s like, exactly. You’re through the r you’re through

Josh Bridges (18:54):

The roots. You are, you are in the happy state you’ll ever be in. Yeah. It’s crazy. It really is. I remember when I first started doing it, man,

Sevan Matossian (19:01):

Are you addicted? You think to it?

Josh Bridges (19:03):


Sevan Matossian (19:03):

Not like, if you didn’t do it, would you be miss it? Would you be

Josh Bridges (19:05):

Like, oh yes. I

Sevan Matossian (19:06):

Definitely When you travel,

Josh Bridges (19:08):

Uh, yeah, I still do. I try to do, uh, cold showers when I travel most mornings. Um,

Sevan Matossian (19:15):

Do you get the same effect from a cold shower? I’ve taken cold showers. It doesn’t do shit compared to cold.

Josh Bridges (19:19):

Not, not e not nearly as, yeah, no, not nearly as much. Um, the hell was I gonna say, I don’t know. But yeah.

Sevan Matossian (19:27):

Just to being like a, a like, like taking drugs, like the happiest 30 minutes of your life afterwards when you get out. Exactly. And, and I was asking if you Oh

Josh Bridges (19:34):

Yeah. Oh yeah. Yeah. When I remember the first time I, yeah. When I first started doing it, I was just like, I didn’t know that much ab like, about it. There wasn’t as much research. It was like 2017 or 2016 is when I started doing it. And so there wasn’t that much out there like there is now. And man, like, I just kept being like, people kept asking me, why are you doing this? Why are you doing this? And I’m like, well, I heard it can help with getting sick. And, and I’ll tell you what, after I fucking do it for the first 30 minutes, I’ve never been happier in my entire life. It’s crazy.

Sevan Matossian (19:59):

Yep. The, the first time I did it, um, maybe only time <laugh>, uh, I did it with, I did it with Miko. Selo in, um,

Josh Bridges (20:07):

In Finland.

Sevan Matossian (20:08):

In Finland. Nice. And we were in a, we were in a sauna that was so fucking hot that I thought I was gonna die. <laugh> glass sauna. Yeah. <laugh>. And then, and then we walked out naked into a bay that had like ice floating in it.

Josh Bridges (20:22):

Oh man. That must have been Christmas for you. It was naked with another dude. <laugh>,

Sevan Matossian (20:26):

<laugh> and Easter and my birthday <laugh>. And with Miko.

Josh Bridges (20:31):

Yeah, exactly.

Sevan Matossian (20:32):

Hey, it’s weird. I can’t even, I can’t remember seeing his penis. Isn’t that weird?

Josh Bridges (20:36):

<laugh>? I don’t believe you for a

Sevan Matossian (20:39):

Second. I don’t Did you not peek or what? You know what I was worried about though? So we’re in there naked and we’re sitting on these towels and I, and I was embarrassed. Like if I got up and there was like some sort of like brown stain on my towel or something like that. Like, I like, like holy shit. This is like, I’m gonna be sweating through this fucking, cuz I’m, I got a hairy ass and it’s like, it’s like my, my butt is like, it just, it crushed an animal like a bear crawled in there and got killed. <laugh>. And I was like, I remember that. Just be getting hard to be settled. Cuz the whole time I’m thinking if I get up, someone’s gonna know like, hey look a little brown stain on us, bro.

Josh Bridges (21:12):

<laugh>. But it wasn’t <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (21:14):

But then we went into the cold and I, and I couldn’t stop laughing for 30 minutes. It was serious. I was so embarrassed, but I couldn’t stop laughing for 30 minutes.

Josh Bridges (21:21):

That’s awesome. Do you don’t have to Finland? I gotta do that. I gotta go. I’d love to go out to Finland, hang out with Miko.

Sevan Matossian (21:26):

Uh, Seon has one tucked in the Spank Bank for sure.

Josh Bridges (21:30):


Sevan Matossian (21:31):

Uh, Mike. See Michael. See you. Uh, you would look like you just got tased. Josh. Uh, Josh hit the Chuck Norris. Josh is the Chuck Norris of CrossFit.

Josh Bridges (21:41):

That’s fact.

Sevan Matossian (21:42):

Yeah. That’s fair. I like that.

Josh Bridges (21:43):

<laugh>. Do you still do the uh, carnivore Seon?

Sevan Matossian (21:46):

Uh, I try to, but I’m pretty sloppy with it. I’ve been, I I’ve been on a, a month of pretty hardcore drinking. Um,

Josh Bridges (21:54):

Nice. Good. <laugh>. What’s your drink of choice?

Sevan Matossian (21:57):

Uh, I, I go to all these fancy places. So it’s always,

Josh Bridges (22:00):

You’ve been, you’ve been hanging around with some bad people again, huh?

Sevan Matossian (22:03):

Yeah. Spicy. Uh, anything spicy? Anything with spicy margarita?

Josh Bridges (22:09):


Sevan Matossian (22:09):

Yeah. Spicy Moscow mule. Anything hotter the better. Like I want it to burn.

Josh Bridges (22:14):

So you like mezcal?

Sevan Matossian (22:15):

I don’t, I don’t, I’m not familiar with that.

Josh Bridges (22:17):

Mezcals like a, people call it like a tequila. It’s like a spicy tequila or a smokey tequila. Sorry. Um, I love it. It’s actually one of my favorite drinks right now too.

Sevan Matossian (22:27):

This this girl I know, um, is always sending me pictures of her. Just Dr. Videos of her just drinking mezcal. Yeah. Just out of all. Remind me to send you her Instagram account.

Josh Bridges (22:36):

Josh Bridges (22:46):

Sevan Matossian (22:59):

<laugh>. Josh, do you have any friends who are on Instagram on only fans?

Josh Bridges (23:02):

Not that I know of.

Sevan Matossian (23:03):

Really? You don’t have any? No. Mm-hmm. No. You know, no dudes. You don’t know any, there’s no stories of any dudes seals or, or who have

Josh Bridges (23:10):

Not that I know of. <laugh>. Wow. I can think of little extra money. I, I want, I wanna, I wanna, yeah. I don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (23:15):

<laugh>. Hey, there’s a, there’s a dude in here in our, in our, in the comments here, um, who’s an only Fann guy and I’ve become friends with him. And the other day this fucking guy sends me a, a, a receipt and it shows that he made like $847. And he says, Hey dude, I made that selling three pair of underwear. He’s like, you have to sell. And then he’s like an asshole. He goes, you have to sell 42 shirts to make that much money. <laugh>. I’m like, and I’m thinking to myself more than 42. Cuz your shit’s like straight profit. Oh my

Josh Bridges (23:43):

God. That’s crazy. That is wild. That’s a, that is a wild world we’re living in right now. Man. Nuts

Sevan Matossian (23:52):

Starts, you wipe your ass with your underwear and then put it in a envelope.

Josh Bridges (23:58):

Some fucking seal.

Sevan Matossian (23:59):


Josh Bridges (24:00):

Weird you sending So dude in this world right now, bro, only fans, I think you could actually, those little brown spots Savon. So that might be something

Sevan Matossian (24:09):

<laugh>. You do, you do I’ll over there. <laugh>. You do. Uh, how are, uh, how are the kids? I I wanna show you this video. I saw this the other day and I was, I was like, I wonder how would Josh would think of this? It’s the top one up there. Uh, Mr. Suza. It’s the, um, our our kids too young for this. Oh yeah. Here are, are you, are you still watching UFC pretty good? Oh yeah. Yeah. Good. Me too. Did you see, did you see Dana went through that whole health thing? That whole health scare?

Josh Bridges (24:32):

Well, I saw that he like lost a bunch of weight and all that

Sevan Matossian (24:35):

Kinda stuff. Yeah. He’s not red anymore.

Josh Bridges (24:36):

Yeah. He, um, ain me. He looks good. Yeah. How about Chandler fighting Connor baby?

Sevan Matossian (24:45):

I feel horrible for Connor. I think Chandler’s gonna, I

Josh Bridges (24:48):

Think Chandler’s gonna knock him out too.

Sevan Matossian (24:50):

I think he’s gonna

Josh Bridges (24:51):

Abuse him. I mean, one of, one of Connor’s when Connor was actually still really good, one of his hardest fights was Chad Mendez, right? Yep. Yep. And I mean like that fight right there, Chad Mendez versus, uh, Chandler, that would be a phenomenal fight. Yeah. Right? And so the only thing that, uh, Mendez, the only reason Mendez’s lost is cause he gased in like the fourth round. I mean, he agree.

Sevan Matossian (25:14):

Agree a hundred percent. I agree. He just

Josh Bridges (25:16):

Turned his shit in the fourth round and

Sevan Matossian (25:18):

Uh, he was fucking Connor up.

Josh Bridges (25:19):

He was crushing them, dude. Yeah. Yeah. And uh, and Chandler’s that same guy, you know what I mean? Like, they fight, they’re both wrestlers. Um, uh, and, and, and then be who’ve turned into strikers. And so I think it’s gonna be, I think it’s gonna be, uh, a good day for Chandler.

Sevan Matossian (25:36):

You, you know, that that that thing that they say like a bear can just grab you and just like throw you 20 feet in the air.

Josh Bridges (25:42):


Sevan Matossian (25:43):

I feel like Chandler can do that to Connor. Like he could just walk up to him and grab him and just toss him in the air like a sack of shit.

Josh Bridges (25:49):

What, what kind of shit do you think ch uh, Connor’s on to get up to? Like that two 60 or whatever?

Sevan Matossian (25:57):

Uh, is that how much? No, he didn’t get up to two 60.

Josh Bridges (26:01):

So that’s what they uh, there was like one tweet that said he, he said he weighed one 20 kilos.

Sevan Matossian (26:09):

Well, that’s fucking ridiculous. I, the most I saw him look like he weighed is maybe he got up to 200, 1 90. But, but, but regardless, uh, did you see he was, he’s already been drunk at the um,

Josh Bridges (26:20):

Oh, at the tough,

Sevan Matossian (26:20):

At the tough house, at the ultimate fighting house. And they have a rule there, no drinking. And how serious could he be taking the fight if he’s drinking? Shouldn’t he already start be cutting weight? Look

Josh Bridges (26:28):

At his fucking head, man. Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (26:31):

It’s, it’s ridiculous.

Josh Bridges (26:32):

I mean, that’s the thing that’s, that’s where like, that’s so shitty that he like, he obviously got on something, you know? And you

Sevan Matossian (26:38):

Do think it is shitty.

Josh Bridges (26:40):

Yeah, it’s shitty because he was heal, he was healing from something and so that’s the only way he healed from it.

Sevan Matossian (26:45):

Right? Right. He broke the, he broke his leg and he got on the juice to expedite the healing. I mean Yeah. Or that’s how he justified it. Yeah. You’re not okay with that?

Josh Bridges (26:53):

No, not okay at all. Not when, not in a, not in a fucking fight when he like these guys who are fighting, man. Like, I don’t know. I just think that that’s so fucked up.

Sevan Matossian (27:02):

It’s even, it’s even a worse kind of cheating because like if someone cheats and you get into a CrossFit, they just ran faster than you took your money. This is like, they’re pounding your face in which <laugh>. Yeah.

Josh Bridges (27:11):


Sevan Matossian (27:11):

Exactly. Okay. Okay.

Josh Bridges (27:12):


Sevan Matossian (27:14):

Uh, yawn Clark. So Josh can treat himself to Paper Street Coffee. Mm.

Josh Bridges (27:18):

But, but Highway Coffee.

Sevan Matossian (27:20):

I do. I do want to talk about, uh, good dudes and I do want to get back, well, uh, let’s wait before we go to this, let’s talk about Connor a little more. Oh yeah. Um, I don’t think he’s gonna be prepared. I think he’s gonna go out there. I think he’s gonna struggle to make weight and, um, I just

Josh Bridges (27:36):

Hope the fight goes

Sevan Matossian (27:37):

I, yeah, I was gonna say, I don’t think the fight’s gonna go.

Josh Bridges (27:39):

I’m really scared about this. John Jones, uh, gone fight too. Like, gosh, he Jones was in the era of when main cards would fall apart like monthly. Right.

Sevan Matossian (27:51):

You know?

Josh Bridges (27:51):

Right, right. And so I’m always a little nervous when John Jones fights if he’s gonna make, if, if something’s be, if something weird is gonna pop up or, and the, and the card’s not gonna go because I

Sevan Matossian (28:01):

Personal something personal Josh like, like something in his personal life or like Yeah, exactly. Anything.

Josh Bridges (28:07):

Anything. Exactly. Like <laugh>,

Sevan Matossian (28:08):

Anything. You never know he

Josh Bridges (28:09):

Got arrested. You never know with Jones, man. I, I mean I love watching him fight, but man, like there was the, I mean, God, how many fights did he, uh, like get against DC you know, corn? Did

Sevan Matossian (28:20):

You see he squash the beef with, uh, dc

Josh Bridges (28:22):

I, I saw something about it. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (28:25):

He, which is kind of, which is interesting. I mean, sure. Why not? Yeah,

Josh Bridges (28:28):

I guess, right. Yeah. I mean DC’s, DC’s retired.

Sevan Matossian (28:31):

Squashing beefs is not,

Josh Bridges (28:32):

I never, to be honest, I’m, I’m actually sh shocked that, uh, he’s coming back. I didn’t, I didn’t think he ever would. I thought that it was like it lingered too long.

Sevan Matossian (28:40):

Uh, do you think he wins that fight?

Josh Bridges (28:43):


Sevan Matossian (28:44):

You think Jones wins?

Josh Bridges (28:45):

I think Jones wins. Um, Jones is,

Sevan Matossian (28:48):

Takes Jones, takes him to the ground and murders him.

Josh Bridges (28:51):

I don’t even know if you’ll have to take him to the ground to be honest, man. Like, he’s so good. Did you see that statistic where he’s only fought for the title? He’s fought for the title for 12 years. It’s, this is his first non-title fight. I think

Sevan Matossian (29:06):

It’s crazy. Wait,

Josh Bridges (29:06):

Is it a non-title fight?

Sevan Matossian (29:09):

I don’t know what’s happened over there in the heavyweight. Yeah, the

Josh Bridges (29:11):

Heavyweight division’s weird because, uh, in Ghana’s Gone,

Sevan Matossian (29:13):

Right? I don’t know. I don’t know who the ch uh, and the, the, the light heavyweights weird Division two, they got the new guy in there. Who, is it Jaylen Turner? No. Who is it? Uh,

Josh Bridges (29:22):

J uh, Jamar Hill.

Sevan Matossian (29:24):

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Jamal Hill or

Josh Bridges (29:25):

J j uh, something Hill.

Sevan Matossian (29:27):

Something. Yeah. No, you’re right. It is Jamal Hill. You’re right, you’re right. Um, yeah. Who is the heavyweight champ? Suza, do you know? It

Josh Bridges (29:33):

Wasn’t go looking it up. It wasn’t G and I, but I but I don’t think he’s in the, in the UFC anymore, right?

Sevan Matossian (29:38):

No. He’s asking for 30 million for a boxing

Josh Bridges (29:40):

Match. Yeah. And so this might actually be for, for the title, uh, David, we, they are fighting, they are fighting for the ball. No shit. Okay. That’s okay. Yeah. So like every fight that, um, John Jones has been in for 12 years has been a ti it is been a championship fight. Uh, I.
