Welcome back to cageside, we've been kind of we've been kind of gone a little bit, things have been changing behind the scenes. Our promise is all good things. The show is going to continue to grow, continue to evolve and still on the mission to not only be the best may show in general, air is going to be
00:04:41:22 - 00:04:53:15
out. All these fucking people are going to be out. I promise you that. I mean, I like, I'm just joking. But as far as the Philly show, I promise you that it's it's it's going to become the one show everybody is watching and it's coming right from here.
00:04:54:12 - 00:05:06:28
We're going to jump into a quick episode today because honestly, there's not much to to discuss, in my opinion. But the main event itself is worthy of a of a big conversation. I got my boy, Chris, on the show today.
00:05:07:04 - 00:05:28:16
Again, to this down, he's back the one and only green is making his. first main event, I believe, since first in New York. Well, he's been in the UFC for a hot minute, the fact that it's just now that he's getting this chance.
00:05:30:05 - 00:05:43:27
I don't know. I kind of feel like he's getting one of these, like he's fallen somewhere between a Diaz and Amazfit, all kind of status where the swagger has carried him into like center stage. Am I crazy for thinking that now?
00:05:43:29 - 00:05:58:13
I mean, Bobby Green is. Swag comes to mind, we think about Bobby Green, I mean, an absolute he's, you know, recently, you know, the last his last couple of fights, he's become a fan favorite. The last card in Houston, it was so nice to see everyone cheering for him.
00:05:59:10 - 00:06:09:05
I mean, he's in the he's 35, but they'll try say he's in the prime of his career right now. He had a little later. I mean, you got to love Bobby Green. If you don't love Bobby Green, I don't know what to tell you.
00:06:09:20 - 00:06:22:00
Yeah. Get the hell out of here. Yeah. The guys who pocketable. The guy's super likable. And it's one of those. So let's let's let's explain. I mean, obviously, you if you're watching this show, chances are you already know the deal.
00:06:22:00 - 00:06:40:23
But Islam Makhachev, who has a massive hype train behind them as far as being a Khabib's stealth fighter with could be, you know, behind him set to be. The replacement for could be the next best thing in that division.
00:06:40:24 - 00:06:56:28
Whatever you want to call it, the guy is on a streak. The guy has has that popularity, but in my opinion, he is. And in Green's opinion, he's not a fun fighter to watch, and the star quality is not there.
00:06:56:28 - 00:07:13:05
So in fact, his last fight. And I want to hear your take on his own muchachos last fight. But his last fight to me was a kind of made me feel like I don't know what people see in this guy besides the control on the ground, which is huge.
00:07:13:06 - 00:07:30:25
I understand that. But besides that aspect of it, as a star, I don't see it. Am I wrong? No, I think you're wrong in terms of being a star. I think that region that you know, Dagestan, you know, Muslim region, they go behind their guys 100%, you know, they are massive stars over there.
00:07:30:27 - 00:07:41:09
You know, to us, you know, in North America, you know, we don't see the appeal, but those guys get behind their guys 100%, you know, with the, you know, appeal to Habib because of, you know, has massive numbers.
00:07:41:19 - 00:07:54:22
You know, they get behind them. But in terms of personality and, you know, fighting style, it's never going to be you're never
