  • Everything that I post is is going crazy.

  • And, uh, it's just it's incredible to see what a massive global superstar this kid is.

  • What other fights are on this card that people should, you know, tune in for, well, the co main event.

  • So, basically, um, these guys are all lightweights, the main event and the co main event.

  • And, uh, you know, Dan Hooker is ranked number six and this kid, Michael Chandler just came into the UFC.

  • What?

  • He's been around for a while since debut.

  • He's got nine wins by knockout.

  • Seven bites the mission.

  • He's a division one all American wrestler.

  • He's got 12 1st round finishes and all these guys were fighting right now to see who could possibly face.

  • I've even America Meddoff for the title.

  • You got that incredible, uh, apex in Vegas that you built spent over $100 million to put that thing together.

  • But you also got Fight Island.

  • Now when the pandemic is over with what happens to fight Island, can we continue to see fights there, Guys, wait till you see the infrastructure that I killed over here while with Dobby over the next couple of years.

  • So everything that I have over in Vegas, I'm replicating over here.

  • The arena.

  • Um ah.

  • Ah, Huge.

  • Uh, Performance Institute.

  • We're doing a production facility.

  • Everything over here.

  • I'm here to stay.

  • I have a huge 10 year plan for Fight Island Smart.

  • Dana.

  • Congrats to on the first historic UFC broadcast on ABC this past weekend.

  • How did that come into fruition?

  • And what are the plans for where you plan on taking UFC in the next couple of years?

  • Yeah, they hit us up in ABC wanted us to do a fight there.

  • We already have the fights laid out to the dates that they asked for.

  • And that's the fight.

  • That hell on it.

  • And it couldn't have been a more perfect fight for ABC.

  • That whole thing worked out incredible.

  • You know, they expected us to pull a million viewers.

  • We pulled 1.6 million viewers.

  • We crushed it in the demos, and it was It was.

  • It was an amazingly successful event, and Max Holloway is still the man over.

  • Delivering in sports right now is easier said than done.

  • I'm sure you know.

  • So for you guys to be able to, you know, give him 50% more than was expected tells you everything about the u f.

  • C.

  • I got a couple questions for you here.

  • You referenced Habib in your earlier answer.

  • Um, you know, I think there's a lot of people that you know, took a B.

  • But his word that he was going to retire walk away after the death of his father wouldn't want to fight with his father, not in his corner, but you sort of reference that he could be coming back.

  • There's been some waves that he's coming back.

  • What can you tell fans definitively about Narmada Madoff?

  • Yeah.

  • So this guy is, you know, one of the best in the world right now.

  • In the absolute best in his weight class.

  • And I think going into that fight, he had a ton of pressure on him.

  • He, you know, his dad passed away.

  • He was in training camp during that time, didn't get to spend time with his family, got injured, had trouble cutting weight because of the injury, had trouble training, then went in there and put on an unbelievable performance against one of the number one guy in the world.

  • And I think that he was super emotional and he threw down his gloves and all I did was after the fight.

  • I said, Listen, I know you just retired, but take some time, go home, spend some time with your family, heal up and let's talk again later.

  • So we ended up getting together out here in Abu Dhabi, and I get the feeling that you know he will take another fight.

  • So we'll see how this weekend plays.

  • I mean, listen, guys.

  • The biggest fight ever in the history of combat sports was Connor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather.

  • Number two was Floyd Mayweather vs Pacquiao and I think the number three biggest fight of all time in combat sports will be Connor McGregor versus so beaten Murga Meddoff to the rematch.

  • Wow, if we could see that again.

  • Wow, You are so right.

  • Especially with the way it ended for Connor and his swagger.

  • And no Magomadov becoming a household name amongst fans after what he did.

  • Couldn't agree more again.

  • UFC 2 57.

  • The return of the Notorious MM A.

  • McGregor and Poor EA Saturday night from Fight Island, which Dana says he's going to be off the hook.

  • And if you saw the ones back in June last year, that was pretty impressive.
