    - Sons Luke early. Dom's a bit prickly, so Luke soft balls him a bit whenever they talk
    - Talks the difference between a street fight and a regular fight. Says Cody has pissed him off and intends to piss him off
    - Says Cody is probably most like Brian Bowles
    - All you need to get ready for any fight is to preparation "Build the person for 8 weeks in practice and camp"
    - Essentially paid solid boxers to try to knock him out, and switch out wrestlers each round for preparation


    - Still dealing with plantar fasciitis, by taping and such. Got botox into the bottom of his feet for the pain and it's been great so far.

    - DJ could fight at 135 could be at a lot of guys, but it depends on fan demand and money

    - Dom doesn't like that there are lots of different Union groups, thinks the infighting is silly and he doesn't like it what he says right now. Hasn't been contacted yet

    Love listening to Cruz break down fight strategy.

    Easily one of the most cerebral martial artists out there.

    It's mainly Dom
    Luke's just asking questions - a few of them have longer intros

    Cool Dom also thinks Garbrandt looks like Brian Bowles. But that is the most obvious comparison.

    Was sure he was going to see Garbrandt was like Jorgenson

    Love him or hate, you gotta respect his knowledge and insight. Dom by having a brain.

    Ehh they look really similar in my head memory wise with the vicious straight blitzes and flurries of punches.

    The way he deals with plantar fasciitis is incredible my dad has that and I see a lot of NBA players with it and they just take games off. Dom training and fighting with it is impressive and doing the botox thing is wild.

    I always thought Bowles looked more like Mark Wahlberg.

    He's going to ruin his feet long term, he's had three fights this year (or will), two of them have already got all five rounds, he's a work horse and trains like a madman - but glad to hear the botox is working, I hope he has a resolution from it

    Fans who care about the purity and integrity of the sport need to start a write in campaign pressuring USADA to add botox to its list of banned, performance enhancing substances. :D

    lol he does in a literal sense. I suppose I should have have a similar style and strengths to Brian Bowels. But yeah Brian Bowles could be Wahlberg's long lost brother.

    I know your trolling but I think we all agree USADA has it's place and is good in some aspects but it needs to chill and remove tons of stuff from the list and impose less harsh penalties for people who aren't actually Doping hardcore. (In before it's the fighter's responsibility etc. I know. They could still ease up a bit) Also would be cool if they were at least consistent in their punishments...But i really don't want to have a long debate about USADA.
