Just if this -- a lot more issues. -- at the time. As time went on that vote because it better and better man and you know they get this close and close -- to a point where. Definitely felt that I was veteran right. And it that was in 2000. You have attributed to. When -- invited. Improved tons since then and -- 2000 as well. I believe that and -- better wholeheartedly and I'm prepared to show that. Job considering the relationship between humorous shot is there any additional motivation for this fight. No there's no extra motivation to be honest that was actually. The guys there isn't a little extra motivation you know Rashad is the guys had been so eminently possible. And most of the things he says really doesn't bother me you know -- -- me because here again. Only god can judge me and that everybody in the last it has their flaws. And you know I have a kind of person coming country pulls and pulls no way to me really haven't learned. But you know he's insult anyone because my religion you know seeing that I use our religion as a politician and no one has the right to. Question what Matos if his price especially publicly so I took great offense that and I will have zero mercy in this class -- I do my best. To gain respect. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It's whatever I mean gone back and forth -- John too much is is is whatever me and a couple of days and find out you know. You know John John has. As for -- you know he says one thing but he really needs knows no. Pretty much what he says inconsequential really doesn't mean -- I mean that wholeheartedly what did you say you have no right to judge militia -- no right. I'm. But it wouldn't see the thing is like this you can say -- judge your relationship where I can say that that's the main thing about you. I didn't say. And not much you could just had a lot more much you -- didn't about you so you should be thankful you should be thanking me and I didn't say. What I really know much. -- And that's just keeping it real that's keeping it real you wanna be real that's real. Yeah. Well palaces were keeping a real were shot -- having your former coach Greg Jackson in your opponent's corner met with the -- and all how weird is that going to be for you know. Let's face -- anybody else you know. I really don't speak to give them more so this is -- We face and anybody else and coach. I mean what without Lou will be weird to see him over there here will be for a little bit but then at that point one about the fight. I'm not that. I'm not going to be the you know. They pay attention -- on my list goes destruction just by. My. To the -- of the used to hear his voice and stuff like that but. Besides that possibly get. Now we're shot shot has never been taken down at the US he fights so why -- going to be the first person to do it. Because I mean that can do I mean it's not. Is that an issue for you guys you guys that's that's a lot has never happened. A lot of things. You know. Happen that never happened so it doesn't matter it's me out of it while he's never taken down. -- so -- it is so good that you know -- think. It's a great movie is he's just cement. -- shots -- able to take out every opponent he's wanted you. Are you could -- at all while fighting off your back. You know the guys with the you know I'm not too concerned with being taken down obviously. I haven't been taken down and they. And I have long guys who just as strong if not we've shown me fun because of the maze restaurant -- -- And having taken down I believe wholeheartedly. And maybe it won't be taken on in this place but at the same time I'm extremely comfortable with being taken down. It's not rest lament this is a situation where if I get taken down blitzes that we over -- and so on. Who has decent round of who doesn't really even attempts missions so it's get taken down. The club. Goals the fans that boo. That's about it and doesn't -- it hasn't. Affect anything whatsoever each by ex -- and as each round Texans -- And I'm prepared to stand and that's my feet I'm prepared to -- emissions. Anything in I think the ground and actually -- my management. Three out of the last four fights of the people have tapped out to the submission. The shot hasn't gotten some assistance zones I don't know and I haven't seen it so the ground doesn't have an -- I'm very well there on the ground. John how do you see this fight playing out. I think I believe wholeheartedly that this is going to be a fight -- I had get a knockout -- I have some guys -- some pretty amazing defense we don't -- the action elusive Rampage very tight with his defense. Children very good economy. Very Smart senate -- and I think I'd rather as a fund Rashad has thrown the worst chance for the worst defense and I believe that wholeheartedly. That I will get an outcome on the spot. OK guys we'll see how things develop inside the octagon thanks so much for joining us. Good luck with the fight don't forget foxsports.com.
