 UFC on ABC- Holloway v Kattar- Transcript Hey guys, welcome to the first episode of the podcast down on do today. Were going to be talking about Max Holloway Calvin kattar. Santiago ponzinibbio and what hes been up to? Walking Buckley and his incredible rise in 2020 Neil Magny Michael chiesa. Finish it off with Leon Edwards in terms of Jamiah and heliflite spin phones receive couple times. So I looked into it up. So, you know, hope you guys enjoy it send as Max Holloway and Calvin Cato Grapevine. What do you thoughts on it? Yeah. Its definitely interesting God fight this one. What Im concerned about is that this is only Kaylas third time out of five grand for his entire career April. Sorry, what I would want to look at is does he have the stamina to last five ramps with Max Max who has a lot of experience at five grand fights. What do stamina? I think cat is go out on the right is seminar. He was definitely coming on against the fight with zabit magomedsharipov. Send that to a drowned. He definitely proved dumb. He dont want to wilt. His shes lost fighting is Danny gay. He definitely lost of the full five rounds but a lot of pressure. I think Calvin kattar in my opinion has the best pure boxing in for the way now, hes definitely good boxer. But is he able to handle and keep up with Max Holloways while watching of the volume. You used to be threw out Brian Ortega volume. I think that kind of actually the same flight is Max in my opinion is Elizabeths daughter Calvin kattar is also a slow start up with that kind of depends on his opponent and we spacing in the debate fight. he did start slow because it be in the first two rounds was throwing so much volume in 72 France strikes and pacifically spinning shot spinning back kicks to the face to the body something that kind of threw him off, but I think I think they match up very similar in terms of how they start that. I definitely have a lot in common as well. I mean not a fighter has ever been cleared OT code nine one has ever been knocked down. So its definitely interesting and its one thats unpredictable in my opinion. Max Max has to show to reach Enterprise from to Cato 3 and 3 in in a fight with walking musky. How well he can in the rematch with lock nuts key how well he can manage distance the volkanovski fight. Kind of threw myself because hes like I said, hes a slow starter and he always takes or my opinion. They takes the first two rounds kind of slow to gauges opponent volkanovski, especially in the first fight the little bit of the second fight in the first two rounds. He just came out of him and Max didnt expect that. Thats why I think dont expect anything too crazy at least in the first two rounds. But as as if I goes on these guys able to level up and expect a lot of Countess Trucking I think from Calvin Calvin Calvin has gone very long Jackson very good Countess and hes very comfortable in the middle in the middle of an exchange while he Wind Blows cover up. He looks for opportunities to return fire to something Max next to look out for Isnt hes also an intelligent pressure fighter. just like Maxs thats why theyre very similar even though Theres not too much tape in in terms of the amount of flights. The Calvin kattar has specially fiveround fights. But if you actually its compare them side-by-side. When they have someone up against the cage. or if they see that someones hurt. do in Russian too much, but theyll throw a lot of volume at that person and try to get them out of the what I like about cavities. Even when hes on. Price of pressed up against the cage. He looks very calm like you who just defend and stop trading before circling out like you did in the Shane Burgos fight, which will be lots of latkes Maxs Googles got you up against the cage and quick shout-out to the New England Cottontail. The gym that hes finding out of with also rope font is also climbing the ranks and their head coach Tyson chartier. I think they doing great stuff out of the gym. It is also important to think about Max and mentality coming off of two lawsuit. A lot of people thought he won the second fight and I personally thought he won the second fight with volkanovski next time. Shut up. I know its going to be a tough one. Its its tough to judge how this white guys, but I didnt I couldnt see someone getting stopped at least in the first three rounds. I think theyre very similar to take a bit of time to read their opponent and if any are prediction I think itll I want to say decision but Im not too sure on who who takes this one. What about you and I agree with fearful. Like I said before neither one has been cared to each other. We dropping you see my other one has one last mission in a long long time. I think I tore one in 2009 years ago. So I dont see anyone being submitted. I dont see anyone getting carrier to take a note. So I reckon Max is going to win by a unanimous decision. Dont be surprised. If You See Kay de absolutely Kind of pic a pop Max I wouldnt be surprised if I say that. Okay. Pick Max up on here. I just I have a lot of respect for Max. He seems like hes in a good headspace. I think its recently just got engaged sold on Instagram. I have a lot of faith in Calvin kattar. I think I think by the end of 2021 if he wins this fight that is fighting for a time. Maybe even off is 5 maybe 20 20. I want to move on to the next topic it sent you a gift from the new year. Was it being? I dont know. Whos first fight back after November 2018, Neely two new two and a half use where he actually knocked out Neil Magny was one of the most impressive records 28th and 3 if you would be right. Now if you had stayed active after that fart just as much as new Mac me I think hes had a bunch of health issues. Then hes had surgery a lot and then it was meant to fight last year actually, but I think he got covid-19. Set up fight felt through but I think hes been even when he was funny was kind of under the radar. No one really talked about. No one in the media seems that really talk about him. Another think he he was too. Old with the media he commented on his name out there too much was in a round two more to podcast and run to the sour stuff isnt here and I know what Snapple York City Spanish is Ben. He travels does the Spanish sort of things for Easter. So I think hes enjoying that as well. Ive seen that hes still staying active at American top team. Are you there? American ATT ATT the number chin phone in like a when I was looking for like news for Santiago. That wasnt too much and usually you just have to go following cycle media Arkham. If you stays active you can probably in top 10 to see you know, what are you right now right now? I think they took him actually off the rankings does not there at the other thing that might have taken him off. Someone who did have a big 2020 walking Buckley bunch of awards possibly you did a lot of journalists and a lot of other media outlets and a UFC also. I think he might have One of them mofo bonuses that he did his actual five play. How much did it? How much bonus did you get for that lost 5. I could knock out cuz I know 50,000 differently, but he probably go to go behind the scenes money is ho from Dana. Yeah. Cuz he said all the other fights one. Great you might as well give the other bonus to him as well. Two of those Clifty, baby. People do forget he did lose to Kevin Holland kind of got manhandled if you Ragdoll Buck having all into a people do forget that then of course, he has his little ass a little actually has beef with your boy James Krause. Do you want to see that far? Ive seen James Krause. I think Diego Sanchez actually messaged him and he was like, lets fly. Lets make it happen to make it happen or not. Id rather see James cross flight working Buckley because Joaquin one. Join the gym, but hes well known for being someone thats not respectable good disciplines. Therapist will be fun to see the fight happened at times crossword have to go up to Middle Light, which is done before. Yeah. He took Six Days Seven Days short notice. But well the thing is they did call him. I think like two or three weeks before that and The Awesomes take the fart and he said no and then they called him again 6 days before the fighting gets fuck it. Alright, lets just do it. If you got a pretty busy schedule this year, hes got like 12 flights booked like hes coaching. So it doesnt really have time to fight. This years a big one to see if you know Megan Anderson fellow was he fighting nothing in March against the Amanda Nunes? For the featherweight title thats going to be a tough one that hes on hes coaching Anthony Smith. Im not too sure if they still together thinks so is the correct mail. Why didnt I didnt know hes catching Megan Anderson, but thats not the carding. Its a tough life or her. How do you say that one going? Im not too sure cuz I dont know where Amanda is once again headspaces. Thats just had a baby. Maybe one foot in one foot out of fighting. Its always a tough one Megan his long. Is she still training Amanda? Yeah. Ive seen her photos at ATT. Just fighting a shoes training. Had a baby with her with that Nina ansaroff there as well. But its tougher when it was first announced. I was kind of like Amanda will probably just take it down. Yeah, thats what I know now is the it was meant to happen. Nothing lost you but then you go cancelled actually been to happen November or December cuz of Carvedilol something else. Im not too sure modern curved or it could have been an entry but now that is kind of a little bit for the route. I give a bit more of a chance to Meghan. I think its just good stand-up. Thai takedown defense isnt the greatest against Amanda, of course, it has to be good. Its going to be a tough one to tell phone to call my opinion. Dont be surprised if make it with. Okay, and she loves fire what that one? I dont know. Im leading to his decision, but I would have realized people that are great for a long extended amount of time. When they lose they lose badly they they lose in a way. That is very unexpected. Is it something thats how do I recover from later on you can also seem like a like a fart psychologist. I dont know about that, but I just know that. the grates when they lose No, one sees the coming of Muhammad Ali losing. Anthony Joshua losing to Andy Ruiz for example stop Pecos that Im do do I know when to retire and they just keep putting that pressure on themselves. If the age is up there. Yes, but even if they in the middle of that Prime, its someone that everyone is saying theyre going to win against and it just shocks them Someone Like You Wanna losing to Rose? So I dont know. Whats a hard one. Yeah, thats why I dont know about that. I will the best. Hopefully they usually win. I think shes out of 102 submissions a couple of decisions octanol to shore might have to check out but staying farts 11 Wings 6.35 submission and 2 decision. And then shes lost four times twice by North Keswick in the early career of my rent check. That early like 4 years ago. Show me since she started in. 2013 Amanda Wu Will utilize all the fart taking down that apartment to rent to me, correct? That one just keep doing that. If someones bad at taking down at defending takedowns. I think Amanda will just utilize that Superbad FYI, the typing in the middle of the week Neil Magny and lockhill chiesa Im not magnets carry-on is very active is very active, but its consistently active. She is so I can use the better Grappler. And Magnus the better Striker. I dont know. What do you think? on paper Its a good vibe. I think the way it plays out, maybe a little grappling cefalos that roll into Knockouts. Maybe the same the fight for you the birth birth big people might stay long was killing himself trying to get down to 155. And now he looks too big for 178. He does have a very low strikes landed two strikes absorbed ratio, then he lands to strike stool at 2 and he absorbs one. So thats a bit of a problem, especially with magnesia Long Reach and he just he throws that job out consistently and magni is always ready for 5 rounds. Is that hes got the stamina for his stamina is off the charts and fine if hes been about that one, but I couldnt be more than one. But he did have a big win against. Rafael dos anjos 3 Rounds Yeah, she actually has never had a father Brown. What is a stream and anyway is a main event? A year Europe is lost. Why was January 25th against Rafael dos anjos? And then before that in July of 2019 he for Diego Sanchez. He hasnt been too active. But if you in my opinion if you can beat Rafael dos anos youre pretty legit. You cant fight for the titles at some point. I really respect us anos and he kind of the way that dos anos lost against Colby Covington. And tomorrow is Moon Michael chiesa basically did that to him. Maybe even a little bit was what interests me the most about this is. Majority of magnesia losses of eye submission and majority of cases wings of ice mission. So that she was asked me my humble opinion have the soccer player. I reckon Kia Sorento on submission. Yeah, Id like to look at McNeese record must have the screens up. Our decision PS is not a lost by indecision so I dont see it going. All the way to the end five rounds. I think itll be an early finish. Yeah, could I could see? I dont know about an early, but I just know that if you Dont put Magnolia Way. Hes always going to be in your face. Hes going to be that jabbing. You front kicks to the body. Just using his reach all the way up until the 25th minute. So I intend to that. My prediction for that its a tough one. Its going to be a slow start. I think if she has to get to take down, he probably keeps smack me there for a solid portion of that round. Why do you reckon slice talk? Cuz if Im sounding like he I thought he was going to be enough for a grand fight before maybe once in my MMA. Carry. The last thing I want to do is Look for Parker long and Garth Road. Go to the Round 4 and 5. I want to finish quick submission defense. Yeah, hes long majority of his losses on my submission. Yeah, but hes improved like his submission defense is improved. So dont expect anything major happen until maybe the second or third round again. Yeah, alright moving on Leon Edwards vs. How I remember last time we talked about this you said that you feel like this fight is like that cursed. Happy Ferguson fight. Whats that? What is this the second or third time? Its been canceled the second time. Ill just want to give a quote that Leon said on an insta post. You said I offer to fight Niello chiesa in the main event January 20th and come straight after but the UFC said no. One of the most unlucky people in 2022 of the UFC is Leon Edwards beginning of the year? Just before just before Travis started. He was supposed to say sorry just with off to favorites. And he was supposed to fight Tyron Woodley in England those supposed to speak coming out party. If it was the Woodley that we saw in 2020. He probably beats him get some recognition. hes hes not going to say its not the most marketable person, but he does have that backing. And then from the Woodleaf, I maybe goes on to a Covington or maybe even a Birds fight after that. What about Jorge? Jorge but I dont think they do that fight to be honest. Do you want to see that fine? I want to see the rematch. this is they really want to keep this fight. They think that you might have pizza Edwards. I think UFC secretly believes that that would be crazy. Not to me, 16 Against All Odds Against the law. Who knows what the odds would be ranked number 3 in middle way. I looked beyond the times of snow to write $15 by now. Thats base of what weve seen him fight against. The best competition Gerald Moshe was his toughest and hes at 16 17 seconds 17 seconds in UFC 2. I really wanted to actually see can my hip and Stephen Wonderboy Thompson. How would that player your I can at least agree? I think Wonder Boy has a good takedown defense. Wonder Boy is one of the hardest fights for someone in that wont wait. Hes not like a hes not a gatekeeper two-way if you beat him. you guaranteed a title shot, but hes also where he hes always up there and hes one way one flight away from a title shot. Thats wonderful. But do you think you can get knocked out easily styles of Superman free knockout to be honest. He was waiting. He was just like you can hear him. Hes getting up there in age. 1136 I think so. Maybe around that age. But yeah, thats a fight. I wanted to see all we see the UFC doesnt think that should happen. I think they kind of want to talk to Maya by keeping the fire and a flute a knife Leon loses. Theyve grown humza to where he is now and if it comes up Wednesday get rid of Leon a guy that that I want to Market going back to the one. I dont even think I dont even think he wants to find you said doesnt doesnt make sense for him. But I did see off that he kind of did accept it and when when he rejected it and then they were thinking of doing Leon. I did see one the boy come back and say yeah, I kind of want that fight. Whats 1 / ranked. So. I think hes up there and lie on Spot 2. I want to see feet. There what are your thoughts on that? On Leon vs. Amazon yet I reckon its one of those fights that thats just completely unpredictable. If I say all kinds of my twin final cat the complete opposite could happen. Its one of those fault. You dont want to set expectations for you. Just want to go into it with Lord expectations and just enjoy it. Okay if I can get behind that. Yeah, thats going to be here for this episode guys. Please make sure you like and review a podcast on whatever you listen to actually didnt tell us what you think those what you think leave comments how we could improve what else we could talk about. We just starting out with very new to this whole thing. So any help or guidance is highly appreciated. Thanks for listening. Thank you.
