  • you say as humans, we have a hard time communicating and I agree with you.

  • Do you think fighting is a way of communicating?

  • I mean, so many people watch Mohammed Ali fight who weren't fight fans, and they watched a man get into the ring and put it on the line and stand for what he believed in.

  • I mean, is fighting this kind of way we can communicate with each other because in ways their people putting their lives on the line there you can see heart, you know, it's almost like an opera unfolding in front of you.

  • Of what the human condition is.

  • Is that why you think we're attracted to it?

  • Most definitely The closest thing to life that you're gonna find.

  • Ah, fight.

  • It's just like life.

  • You gotta fight for everything.

  • You got to stand up for yourself.

  • You get knocked down, you gotta get back up.

  • You understand me?

  • Fighting is the most is the closest thing closest sport to me, that's comparable to light to everyday life in the sport out there.

  • Boxing fighting is the closest thing because it's truthful, right?

  • Because it's there.

  • You get hit, you either stay down or you get up and there's no, there's no Hollywood.

  • There's no editing.

  • There's no cover up.

  • There's no news story.

  • It's happening in real time.

  • You can't run, you can hide.

  • And there's a winner at the end.

  • Right second, What ISS is that?

  • Why you love it?

  • You better believe it right?

  • There is a winner and a loser.

  • And there's a lesson there.

  • Always, right?

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • Dana White from the UFC, said Fighting is in our DNA.

  • That's what he said, he said.

  • If there's a hockey match on the corner and a basketball match being played and a fight breaks out, everybody go watch the fight.

  • And he said, Yeah, and that's and that's in our DNA, right, because it means something to all of us.

  • Even if you're an old lady and you never had a fight in your life, it still means something, right?

  • Is nature.

  • Yeah, his nature.

  • You used to watch animals, and that's how you got your fighting style not only in the ring, but even the way you would behave and act outside the ring.

  • Is that right?

  • Of course.

  • If God made nature, then what better teacher to give the nature God made nature didn't give it.

  • No choice is because you watch nature.

  • You learn how to do things that God created.

  • And he didn't give them much choice to say.

  • I won't do it just like that.

  • No, He just showed him how to do it naturally.

  • Learn how to do it.

  • They got that directly from God.

  • So why not learn from them?

  • And you would watch the Alfa whatever chicken or bear or dog.

  • And you'd watch the way they behave before the fight after the fight, right?

  • Right, Because the Alfa wins Exactly, and they win.

  • And a lot.

  • Ah, lot of the game happens before the fight, right?

  • The posture.

  • A lot of it happened before the fight.

  • So you must know how to behave, how to carry yourself before, during and after their three phases.

  • And do you think the fighters of today understand that as well?

  • Do you know they don't?

  • No Mhm and again you've said before, it's a It's a very much so a mental game, and I know we've heard that many, many times in the past, but I wonder if you could dissect it.

  • A little bit Mawr because you've said it Z e think 99% mental.

  • Although most people that aren't fighters they can't see that because they it to them.

  • It appears physical, Roy.

  • Yeah, it appears physical, but there's so much more that goes into it mentally.

  • And you never know there's mental.

  • But from when you when you know you might fight somebody, you have to watch your kids sit around them because they're always looking for weaknesses.

  • So that meant that mentality is what you must learn to have the animals taught me.

  • I'm talking that you always carry yourself that you are the boss so that when people see you, they know that's the boss.

  • If I wanna be the boss, I gotta get that boss for that.

  • Boss is the boss that he cares himself.

  • That's how he thinks that's how he eats.

  • That's how he drinks.

  • Everything about him is the boss.

  • If you don't have to start with, then he's not really a boss.

  • So a boss is gonna be a boss from get to go.

  • That's why most of them Yeah, and you train a lot of fighters.

  • I know you're you're working with Chris Ewbank.

  • Junior, I know you got fighters in South Africa and Russia and Europe all around the world.

  • Is that a lot of what you're teaching them?

  • That the mentality from the way they speak to the way they talk about themselves to inside the ring outside the ring, I was more on the boxing inside the ring first.

  • And if I get one that gets good enough that you can get to that point like Chris Ewbank and they don't I start taking down that road cause that's a secondary road.

  • First, you gotta learn how to get the tools together so that you can be this person that you need to be.

  • Then you know how to put the character with the person.

  • Now you've got a full connection.

you say as humans, we have a hard time communicating and I agree with you.
