    Nearly 4 hour long interview with no cliffs with a fighter nobody cares about?

    Nobody cares? I think most of the BJJ guys in the world will disagree.

    Ryan Hall is a cool cat, I wish it wasn't Lex interviewing him though. Lex talks about stuff he's not truly versed in and it just reads false to me. Like Brian Callum (or whatever his name was) debating MMA with Joe and whomever.
    It was cool listening to Ryan's thoughts, he's always well spoken, humble and of course, articulate.

    Ryan Hall is old and inactive. Not a great recipe for success in the UFC.

    UFC should give him more fights. Unique approach fighters are fun and enrich mma.

    One of my current favorite fighters to watch.

    A lot of fighters/fight styles blur together for me and I can't remember 90% of the roster to save my life..... Ryan Hall is not that.

    What do you mean? Isn't Lex Fridman a blackbelt in BJJ? I'm sure he's not that casual in MMA either but idk. I'm kind of neutral on the guy.

    He’s an expert in his field and bright, but he thinks it extends to all his interests like BJJ. Dude just has a platform IMO. I don’t hate on him, just don’t value his take on martial arts or MMA.

    Hell, as funny and crazy Sherbros can be, there are a lot of WAY more knowledgeable people on these forums. They just don’t wear the gimmicky black and white suit he wears and speak in monotone fashion as if every word is precious and every insight so undervalued.

    Some comments he makes about fighting in general just reflect a lack of real insight. I would never say that about other people I’ve come across, even dudes who are not known but truly have depth.

    Not to compare the two exactly, but it’s sort of like Rogan (who knows his MMA stuff), he learns something about some topic, uses that knowledge and peddles it like he himself understands it at a complex level then some real expert on the podcast says “Yeah, yeah, sure, interesting.... I can see that.” But yeah, dude is intelligent but speaks of things outside his true wheelhouse as if he has pedigree. He won’t say he’s all that, but it feels (to me) like he’s thinking it.

    A big part of this is that he is (literally) autistic, like many people in mathematics and neuroscience or whatever his field of expertise is.
