  • 57.

  • We bring in the one and only aerial Helwan Big Bills fan, and he's repping it with his jersey on.

  • Thanks for joining us, my friend.

  • Let's determine time.

  • It's so great to be here.

  • You know, I've been such a big fan of sports nations.

  • My sports nation debut.

  • Guys have been on the air for like, three weeks.

  • You don't call, you don't text you don't bite me on.

  • So I had to come represent bills, Mafia, because this is the F C champions right now.

  • I know I've seen the game already.

  • We're about to win on Sunday.

  • You guys want to watch spoiler alert bills are winning.

  • We're going todo barely got on this show.

  • You barely got on this show.

  • You know, I would have just asked all of it.

  • So you need to slow down with all of that.

  • Okay.

  • Sorry.

  • Trevor, I'm trying to extend an olive branch to you.

  • I know we've had a bit of a feud over the years.

  • You're doing great on the program, but let's be honest, the ratings would be way higher if you had invited me on a couple of weeks prior.

  • I cannot deny that.

  • I can't deny.

  • Finally, it took Connor McGregor fighting to make it happen.

  • So, Ariel, we appreciate you so much for hanging.

  • We're going to get to the Bills in a second.

  • But let's first talk about the fight this weekend.

  • You've got a chance to sit down and do a one on one interview with Connor McGregor, which was unbelievable.

  • I do have to say, but just curious What?

  • Your biggest take away from that interview waas Other than the Bills being the Chiefs this weekend.

  • Okay, Sorry.

  • I had to slide that in, Um, my biggest take away, If you would have asked me Ashley before the interview which Connor McGregor is going to be sitting in front of you.

  • I would have said an irritated Connor.

  • An upset Connor.

  • Ah, frustrated Connor.

  • Remember?

  • He wanted to fight three times in 2020 Had these big plans, right?

  • He had the 42nd win over Donald Cerrone e.

  • He had this season all mapped out.

  • He even wanted to fight Manny Pacquiao, and in the end, none of that came to fruition.

  • He butted heads with the UFC instead.

  • I got a supremely relaxed Connor McGregor.

  • Usually he's sitting in his interviews.

  • He's got that impeccable posture, the fancy suit, all that stuff.

  • He still had the suit, but this time he was kind of slouch.

  • He was relaxed.

  • His son was running around.

  • He was just in a really great place.

  • And, oh, by the way, cutting down to 1 55 for the first time in a little over two years, I thought he'd be a little irritated as well.

  • The complete opposite.

  • He seemed to be in a great spot.

  • Physically.

  • Mentally, I was very impressed.

  • So do you think that then carries on into the ring?

  • That swagger does it take him even further with this rematch against us?

  • Superior?

  • 100%?

  • Um, as he put it.

  • The storm is behind him.

  • He feels like he's in a good spot.

  • He feels like he's kind of figured out how to be famous, how to get his life on track.

  • Let's be honest.

  • In 2019, it was completely off track and it looked like he was about to lose it all.

  • And it seems like he has really figured out how to just be Connor McGregor, the superstar.

  • Now his training, according to his coaches, has been phenomenal as well.

  • And, of course, they're gonna say that before any flight.

  • Best training camp.

  • Blah, blah, blah.

  • We've heard this before, but I gotta say, you know, call me a sucker.

  • I believe them.

  • This time he has a win over Dustin, so he has the confidence in knowing that he could beat him.

  • He beat him in less than two minutes.

  • This time around, he says, he'll beat him in 60.

  • We'll find out on Saturday.

  • Do you think it's going to be different?

  • Do you think this fight's going to be different than the first one?

  • I think it lasts a little longer.

  • Ultimately, I think Connor Winds.

  • I think he's like I said on Monday on my show with D.

  • C.

  • D.

  • C.

  • Melanie, Chief Plug.

  • I feel like he's one of the most underrated fighters in the sport.

  • To me, he's kind of like the Josh Allen of the U.

  • F.

  • C.

  • He doesn't get enough respect.

  • He doesn't get enough enough.

  • E don't feel like people give him his proper due, and I think he's going to remind people that he's still, If you want to say Habib is number one on 1 55 he's number two.

  • He is still the man when it comes to the active fighters right now, 1 55.

  • Because, of course, Hobby Day Magomadov recently retired.

  • But that's my question.

  • Do we see how we have come back?

  • If Connor does indeed win this weekend, would he come back to do a rematch with Connor?

  • Okay, well, first of all, you have to understand the timeline.

  • Habib is a devout Muslim, so he is not returning before Ramadan, which is in April.

  • And he's not fighting during Ramadan as well.

  • And he's not fighting immediately after Ramadan, if you notice recently, Habib is fighting around the fall, which is well after Ramadan.

  • So even if he does come back this year, even if he does, it won't be until September October.

  • And I can assure you Connor wants to fight at least once or twice before September October.

  • Oh, by the way, I don't even think he comes back This year, he said he wanted to retire because his mom asked him to after the untimely passing of his father, due to complications of coronavirus.

  • Um, I think he comes back.

  • And maybe 2022 2023.

  • So, to answer your question, I really feel like if Connor wins the title, so to speak, that's at stake here isn't a fight against Habib.

  • It's a fight for the vacant belt or the interim title.

  • Not necessarily the rematch that the UFC wants to see.

  • Which, of course, is hobby versus counter to All right, Ariel, we got the M m.

  • A stuff out of the way It is now.

  • Time for you to lean until handbills go Fan thing.

  • This is what I want to talk about.

  • The floor floor is yours.

  • Your prediction for how this plays out this weekend.

  • Okay, First of all, let me tell you, I've been a Buffalo Bills fan since 1990.

  • I fell in love with this team when I saw Scott Norwood miss that field goal in the dying seconds 30 years ago in Tampa against the New York Giants.

  • And why do I?

  • Why do I stress Tampa?

  • Why do I stress Tampa?

  • Because guess what?

  • Super Bowl This year.

  • 30 years later where where In Tampa.

  • Full circle.

  • My friends, the last time we played in the A F C championship.

  • And yes, I say we because I'm a proud member of Bills Mafia dating back 30 years.

  • The last time we played in the NFC Championship was against these same Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead quarterback, then Joe Montana quarterback.

  • Now Patrick Mahomes.

  • Why do I mentioned Patrick Mahomes?

  • Because I want him to play on Saturday on Sunday.

  • Excuse me?

  • What did Ric Flair famously say?

  • Back in the day Toe be the man.

  • You gotta beat the man.

  • I wanna beat the man On Sunday, I wanna waltz into our head.

  • Which will do You will win 31 to 24 that I want Tom Brady toe exercise Those demons of the New England Patriots of yesteryear.

  • I want Tom Brady will lay the Smackdown!

  • We will be the champions of the world Come February 7th.

  • You heard it here.

  • First clip this off.

  • Bills are winning the Super Bowl, finally wearing the last person you want running into that stadiums.

  • Tom Brady, 71 2 against the Buffalo Bills in his career.

  • That's the last person you want.

  • I want Tom.

  • I want all the smoke.

  • I want all the bad juju I want.

  • Tom.

  • I want gazelle.

  • I want Gronk.

  • I want all those old fogeys.

  • We want them now.

  • Josh Allen, D M.

  • V P.

  • Sean McDermott's the coach of the year's to fund digs is the comeback player of the year, and he's the best wide receiver in the game.

  • And, by the way, Leslie Frazier should be head coach.

  • I can't believe he didn't get a job that I'm happy and Brian Table should be a head coach.

  • I can't believe he didn't get a job, but I'm happy he's still part of the Bills.

  • And guess what?

  • This defense everyone said last week, the Ravens gonna run all over them.

  • What happened?

  • What happened?

  • How many points in this score?

  • Three.

  • Sad.

  • That's how Maney.

  • That's how many goals Taylor Twellman has in his entire career.

  • Three way.

  • That's the ratings.

  • Anytime Trevor shows his face on camera over there at ESPN.

  • A 0.3.

  • That's it.

  • Bills winning on Sunday.

  • Get hurt here, actually.

  • Oh, actually, say goodbye.

  • We're going out of his buddies.

  • You to know E?
