Rogan: have you ever had anyone knock him out? Zahabi: He got dropped in practice once pretty badly. And its a funny story... one time he got dropped in practice and i wanted to pull the plug. It was for a wolrd title fight, he was fighting dan hardy. Two weeks before the fight. I told him lets not do this last round (there was one more round). He said to me "coach let me finish the next round im ok". And i felt it like if i pulled him i would have killed his confidence. So i said ok you can do the next round. And i then i told the guy he was sparing. I wishpered: "do not land a single glove on him, just take a mauling". And george went into the next round not knowing that the other guy is not allowed to hit him at all. Rogan: hahahahaha Zahabi: And he just crushes the guy, mauls him, this and that. And i was really, really greatful to the other guy, who was a pro, that he took the beating that we asked him to. And george was like "man, that 4th round went bad, but on the 5th i was amazing, i was on fire in there. This is how i am gonna look like on fight night" and then he went "good thing this is friday im gonna have a free day tomorrow". And i went "george today is saturday". And he was shocked. And the UFC was there filming, so i went "guys this footage cant air, this footage needs to disapear". And he was fighting hardy two weeks later. Thats why that fight he did a lot of wrestling we didnt want to take any chances. I was sure he had a concussion" They go on talking about it a bit more. Worth a listen. Video is cued.
