    The Manager vs Lawyer bit; theres a clear difference on the roles. But if you’re Mike’s lawyer and he asks you to double up as a manager - Brace yourself, you are a manager-lawyer. 😂

    Shaub said Frances was gonna beat Stipe their first fight and when he lost Shaub acted like it was a fluke and NOW he wants to act like he respected Stipe.. 😂 Shaub tries to take over this so many times.

    People in the comments saying Francis is “untrainable” yet was coached to strip Stipe of his belt. The training is clear as day from the first fight to the second. Casuals.

    Mike loooowwwkeeeyy hating .. He's like Floyd. Egotisical. Francis , African , so there's a humane and spiritual humility there. Most African Americans have that egotistical thing while Francis is just present & humble and is probably why he's such a Champion. Francis doesn't need advice , he's where he is because it was supposed to be and he catapulted himself to that and shot out to Brendan for backing Francis up btw ...Anyway, Mike , I see you xD,

    I was at the UFC PI for a week working out around the time connor was fighting floyd, and Francis stared everyone down like he wanted to kill them for no reason. Long, death stares until you looked away. Dana White eluded to this at the time, that Francis was even making the staff of the UFC uncomfortable. Maybe hes changed now or maybe its a gimmick.

    Iron Mike your my number 1 person who I’d like to meet given the choice. I pray to God that one day I can meet you to have a heart to heart with you. So I can learn from you & to let you know what you mean to me & many more. Along with the positivity you have bought to many lives, which I think is so important for you to know, as you don’t have any idea of all this. Please Lord 🙏🤲 can I meet Mike

    The reason I like this podcast is because it's about fighting and life a lot of the time with people who actually experienced life at the top of fighting and can debate points. Brendan Schaub's podcasts are the exact opposite. He shouldn't be on this.

    The problem is the ufc is putting a monopoly down on your career they put you in a contract ac ct for a certain amount of fights but then they stretch those fights out over years keep you only making a certain amount if money so they control uh our career throughout. An exclusive deal should come with a Time limit that the ufc must present the fighter with the match ups three fights should take no more than 18 months not 31/2 years and the purse should be higher
