Man, this is just a great opportunity.You know, before we jump into to some of the questions, cangive me like an idea of how this opportunity came to be for you cameit came in through a buddy, my my buddy angel. He knows thisguy, Ernie Perea. He's actually like a hall of Famer, you know, and in King of the cage. So he linked me up with ErniePerea and kind of took me under his wing and, you know, kindof jumped on the opportunity through him.

You know, this guy was a legend, you know, and like the earlier days, I think he was inducing the hall of fame with the Rampage Jackson,Kendall Grove. Who Else? I think is Joe Daddy Stevenson. There's acouple big namers. You know, he got induced with it. It's prettycool. Oh it though. He's the guy, you know, they're that'sBadass man, that's been a bad as man.

You ready to jump into them?Yeah, absolutely, Let's do this, all right. So my first questionfor you is, and again just talking about king of the cage here, what's it like being signed to an organization like this, and what doesit mean to you? My sense, I feel like this is my footfinally in the door, you know, like my career is finally taken offafter, you know, ten years of hard work. When I did myfirst fight I was I think I was eighteen years old, you know.I did I like some little ghetto casino and man, like ten years sincethen I just been turning my ass off and I feel like my shots finallyhere. You know, I'm excited, a good opportunity, so it's timeto tackle it. I've been putting the work, you know, so seewhat happens. Yeah, can't yeah, most definitely. Man. We've beenfollowing you, you know. You've been on this show three this your thirdtime now, Bro, but I mean you went through covid you went throughthe Jiujit it's too phades. You went through your wrestling, you did thehigh rollers, you just had your fight not too long ago, and Bam, here you are again, all the big stage. Brother, we cannotwait to watch you do this, do your thing, like you did lastsight in. Yeah, I'm excited. I'm excited. Back to that day, man, will you found out like you're going to be signed on,like what do what do you remember about that day, like what do youwhat do you specifically? Maybe emotions, things I went in your mind,like tell us. I just feel like the whole universe like kind of foundmy lap, like I actually felt some emotion, because I'm just like HolyShit, like I feel like my flay, my shots here, you know,all this hard work finally pays off, you know, and in the past, you know, I've had opportunities, but I feel like I wasn't maturedenough, you know, to jump on it and I kind of blewit in the past. And that was years ago, though, like sixyears ago. And Man, I feel like this is my last my lastlittle string I'm hanging on. So you know I'm not going to I'm notgoing to turn down any opportunity. You know, I just I'm about toturn thirty one next month, so, you know, I I feel likeit's my time, you know, like I'm in my prime right now.So yeah, do you can get it? You can. Good Shit, man, good shit coming. Like I said, hard work pays off,it really does. Yeah, it does. Man, I work hard for this. Man. He'll yeah, kind of the day, oh, diet, everything, and he knows the hard work has been paying off. Chris, should talk about your last fight and glad eat or challenge. Who wasyour opponent? And for all our listeners that didn't get to chance to checkthat out, how did he go? Bro Tell it, give us abreakdown of it. When I first found out by my last opponent, Ifound I he was it from a good gym, but in my mind Ipictured a whole different guy, you know, like I couldn't find them on socialmedia, you know, I don't want to do too much research onthem, but I knew about his gym. I know they have a lot ofstrikers and they're grappling. Wasn't, you know, up to par.And Man, I was really nervous going in this fight because I had noidea about my opponent. I think it was his second fight, I believe, and you know, going out I done, I think blan you know, you know, kind of leaning up...

...to this fight and Oh man,there's a good fight. You know, he came out, he he cameout. You know, we tie you know, kind of tie down sI felt like, on the feet, and from there, you know,I just listened to my corner. I kept it safe, you know,through some Combos, caught his kick, took him to the ground and Ijust did my thing, you know, and ended up on top. Igot my first Koh, first round, minute thirty nine seconds, I believe. Yeah, yeah, Bro, first Koh. It felt really good,you know. So it felt right. You know, the hard work padoff here. That high life video they made it you was sick. Iall the hairs were standing up on the back of my neck. Bro.I was like, I just saw you smashing that dude. It was awesomethat. I mean talk about all that hard work paying off. That wasit full in effect, on the stage for everyone to see. Bro,congratulations on that. I appreciate that. I appreciate it. It was Iprobably that enough like cast well, my money, where's my so this inthis you mentioned also that you know, you focus on Jiu Jitsu and wrestling. You know some of this, because felt like his camp wasn't really focuson that. What have you added for this fight, like, do youknow anything about your opponent? You know that's change. Maybe some of thestuff that you've been doing and draining my rug. I know that. Iknow my opponent this time around is really well rounded, you know, probablyone of the best guys I've ever fought. So this is gonna be a goodtest for me. You know, I'm not overly confident and I'm notI'm not taking it lightly. You know, this isn't a fight I'm I'm I'mgoing to sleep on. So I put in the work, put inthe time. So I feel like we're a hard work and preparation me.You know, only destiny will tell, right. Yeah, exactly. Hey, I think they're like the all right, Christian, what's up? All,he's a grappler. Well, he says it is a grappler. Itsays a grappler like on his amateur life profile. But you know, athis gym, I look at the Jim you know, unlike their team andthe classes that they offer and it seems like I have a they have aclass for like every art there, you know. So this gout be afood not to jump into every single one of those classes. There is mightthing, you know. Yeah, yeah, that's absolutely right. You know,out here in the Coachella Valley I drive everywhere just to get like,like, you know, my ends meet. You know, I do my boxing, you know, here Coachella. I gotta drive to Riverside to domy kickboxing, my noogie. You know, I also train that over here ata CBBJJ. You know, I do my wrestling over there. Soall my training is now all spread out. I can't just get it all doneand one you know, under one roof. Yeah, kind of abummer out here. You know, in the Coachella Valley we're very limited andresources. You know, it's beautiful for boxing out here, but you know, I feel like the sport of MMA, like we don't have much out here. It's hard to work with what, you know, kind of what wegot. But I also imagine, though, I mean if you thinkabout it in a certain way, like yeah, it sucks as you gottatravel, you got to go their places, but then also you I think youmight. I don't know if you look at the same way, butyou get to pick some of the top places to go in the area forall those different disciplines. Versus all that's all one spot. You kind offeel pressure to stay in that one area and just whoever's they're right. Idon't know. Absolutely. Yep, you have a good point there, youknow. But but the thing about cross training is I feel like sometimes likeif you don't do it properly, you can't step on a lot of toes, you know, because I know in the Jiu Jitsu world, like youknow, it's like a lot of these families, like, you know,they got my child, old Gracie's. You know. It's like, Oh, you're you're one of them, or you one of them. It's like, yeah, I don't know, it's kind of hard to explain. Yeah, you got a pick, you know,...

...like like what academy you want tobe with? It is kind of what I'm feeling, you know.But for like MMA, it's like, Oh man, we gotta, wegotta train every discipline and every art, you know, in my theory.So right, I try not to stick to one you know, absolute room. Cool, that's stop all right, Christian, off camera. We justwe talked about this. You know, Alfonso got married, I got marrieda little bit after that, but you beat us to the bullet, youbeat us to the Party and you got married a little bit before. Congratulations, man, I appreciate that. Yeast the life cheating. So now youI've chasing thing. My youngest daughter is about she's about four years old.So yeah, okay, okay, I guess you can say yeah, butmy my rife really wants one. So I don't know. I'm not anervous right now about that, about that subject. Right. Hey, man, you're you're in this. You were all in the same boat here,man, we're all on the same boat. Brow we're all on the same islandtrying to get off. That's funny or on, whatever way you wantto look at it, but we're all there, man, the Gression.I want to ask, though, how has family life change you like?Does it give you more extra motivation now? Do you feel like, man,I really don't want to smash this fool, but I must smash.How is it changed you myself? Man Like that? I feel like,in my sense, you know, it's give me more more motivation. Youknow, I have more purpose to be in the gym. You know,every time I glove up, it's like, you know, for a good purpose. It's no longer for myself. You know, I have my wifeand my kids behind me. So, yeah, I feel a lot more. It's not necessarily pressure, but I feel like it's more of a motive. It's like a it's like a motivation I didn't even know I had,you know, because it's like good days or bad days, I'm in thegym. You know, I could be having the worst day on the planet, you know, but the second I step in the gym I leave allmy problems at the door. And you know, a lot of these guysdon't even know and I'm having a bad day because I just, you know, I just channel it out, like I'm slowly finding that balance. Youknow, little by little I'm learning. Oh, they'll find out when theycats are wrung end of your fist, fool, that's what happened. Ohwhat Christ's having a bad day to day. Down for it. But but also, I mean you mentioned know why I gave me two black guys.You mentioned the you know that they you know you have that motivation behind you, but you know, also on your social media, I see, youknow, your wife coming around and training with you, sometimes going on youknow, bike rides, hikes, and absolutely seems like she's super supportive whatyou do. Man, do you think that? Oh, no, aswell. Absolutely, it helps, you know, because as as the fighter, like, we're always training so much, we're, I was, going throughso much emotion. So I feel like, you know, if youhave a strong support system, you know, like a wife, beyonce, girlfriend, like, if they're right there through our sessions, kind of watchingus, like, it helps us. You know, like, yeah,I feel like I carry myself better when my wife is right there, youknow, like following me on my run, she's on the bike or right youknow, like it's just it's kind of like energy that I didn't evenknow that I had, you know, like it's awesome. You know,I couldn't it. I wouldn't want to change this for you know anything.You know, I'm really grateful of my support system, you know, evenmy kids. They gave me in check. Yeah, that's for sure. Yeah, and after watching some of your highlights from the last you know,we're talking about some amazing you have performances. We've seen, like, have thereany any fights that you've seen this year that like just stood out toyou? Just like what was your favorite fight this last year? Like youhave seen? You any Holloway and whatever? Max Hollow and dustint poirier? Youknow? Oh, yeah, I think I think that one. Youknow, like lately on my every morning I jump on my treadmill, youknow, I put on the on the tablet I'm over there just studying thatfight. I'm like, man, that was too like stylistically, I think, like those two are really matched up...

...well that fight. And Man,it was a good trade and joyed it. Yeah, that that was a greatfight. All of US comes out to comes out. You might havedo that. Yeah, dude, he's. He's. Yeah. Well, whatdo you think is going to is? It's ahead of FRAHM. I think. I think he's going to be the next champion. You know,that's just in my opinion. You know, I think he really debunked a lotof these guys with this wrestling. You know, he's on a wholenother level. I think, even with this training. You know, hiswhole team, they're all see him wrestled check Hermanson couple weeks ago. Ididn't. I see pictures of it, but I didn't see the actual match. Yeah, I just saw a couple clips and he was right. Helook first of all, he look huge, did and he was Raggedallin Hermanson likeit was no, like nothing. Yeah, man, he's scared dude. He's gonna fuck some shit up and I cannot wad seem like back inthe key. I think he's like another breed of human, like all thoseRussians, you know, coming out. They're different breed man, like theway they trained. Good. I was seeing got super soldier serium. Yeah, I think that's what it is, because his his country was at war, I think, when he was a kid, yea and stuff. Man. Yeah, he's a different breed. You know, we're spoiled out hereas Americans. We're really spoiled. Yeah, for all that harsh fucking winter outthere. It's crazy. Yeah, could be was wrestling bear a hardtime cart hand. Yeah, that's what he says. You know, likewhen you have a hard life, like this whole fight thing in the cageis nothing. You know, hard life, easy fight, I guess right.Yeah, that's it is. That's what he is saying. Yeah,Heck Yeah, Dude. So you just mentioned you know, you work hardoutside the cage to prepare yourself. I'm sorry, to get in the cageand do what you got to do. You know, what do you thinkabout fighters nowadays that are talking their way up to the front of the linefor a title shot or for a high profile fights of the they can getpaid? Oh Man, I'm all like Hese that are you believing? Youknow what, you should just do your hard work, right. Yeah,how does that make you feel as as you're in it? You don't asa fighter, you know what I mean. But there's differ like cutting the linein front of you, you know what I mean. How does thatwhat do you think about that, and what do you think should be done? I think I think somebody should put a stake in the wreck, youknow, basically in the record, and I think they should. I don'tknow, because I guess that they could walk their talk, you know,throw them a bone, you know. But for guys like me, likeI've been a journeyman for, you know, about nine to ten years. Youknow, I've been in this game for a while and I feel likefor me, like I put in the work I'll put in the work everysingle day in my life. You know, good they're bad day and some ofthese guys just kind of walk into MMA JIM and, you know,they talked their way up. I'm not about that, you know, I'mreally not. Yeah, I'm all about humble, hard work, you know, my sense, that's a type of cloth I come from, you know, like in my family. That's what they taught us. It was juststay humble and work hard, you know, and when the opportunities come, youbetter be ready, you know. Yeah, yeah, like damn allthese guys the mine exactly what's going on, all that stuff, and I don'tyea, I personally don't like it. I think it's Super Gimmicky, likewwe, and that's what I feel like the sports more. It justtaking on that role more and more every day. You know. Is itentertaining? Yeah, but it yeah, exactly, but at the bottom thatthe end of the day. It doesn't make the fight any better, doesit? Frank what do you think for the people? Maybe, yeah,I don't know. What do you think about Jake Paul Fighting? WHO's hefighting? Tommy fury in a couple of like two or three weeks? Andthen I heard that Tyson fury was saying...

...that his brother look bad on purposein his last fight so that Jake Paul would give him this fight. Andnow he says he's gonna beat his ass. What do you think about that?You think he really sucked on purpose, or we think he just sorry thatnight? I think it was sorry. You know, I think it's alla show. He's just talking out of his ass. You know,man, this is all this is a circus. It's a circus, likelike what all this is turning into. And it's like nowadays, if you'renot like a like an entertainer, some some type of character, it's like, I feel like you're not going to get noticed, you know. ButI agree. And that's dude. You know how many other boxers have boxing, say, or a kid, and then Oh, here comes Jake Pauland just kind of walks in front of them and Nope, these guys don'teven get a chance, but Jake Paul does. You know, yeah,for sure. It's not for for the people who work their whole lives,you know, for this dream. Yeah, you guys think that good? Doyou think that Jake Paul got to crowd in line because he has thatrobot with him on stage all the time. Maybe, Huh a, will moneytalks, dude, money talks right, Christian reals, fortun would you takea fight with Jake Paul for five meal, four, five mill?Yeah, I could put my kids through school with fine mill. You knowI mean, I could get him ask getting paid off. I could takecare of my take care of my family with five mile. Of course Iwould. You know, it's an opportunity. You know, I'm at the pointto where I don't care about opinion, you know. So I'll jump onany opportunity regardless. You know, if I get out this class,you're not. Let's make the fight right now. Jake Paul, you beingcalled out on me. Oh Man, I think he's got like Jake Paulfive value fus. He's got like Gott the pounds on me, fool,the big jobs. Plus, you try to be fighting. I did takethem down, tire taking the ground. Old Wrestler, that's so say.You just work on the legs, man, just you're too young, Christian.Yeah, and I would be fun and I maybe six year olds andup. I think he's starting to figure out boxing, though, a littlebit like he's getting the right training. You know, he's paying for allthe top trainers. You know he's doing it right. You know, ifyou have money, you can get all the right training, is what theysay. Yeah, that's true. The right training will come to you,you know, if you got the cash. Just what I'm learning. What didn'thelp? A DLP, Lunkren and rocky. Yeah, yeah, theFusil got his ass kicked. Yeah, but let's talk about fight. Theywhat was? What does that day look like to you? You know,like just in your head, you're like you got do you have like violenceon your mind? Like how do you prepare, you know, like thisyou just gonna throw some blows? Like how do you prepare yourself for that, for that day? In the past, I used to like channel my energyand get all aggressive and, you know, like who like get onnuts and it's like not, it's it's like I try to remain calmness,you know, just keep calm, you know, a lot of breathing,you know, just really just trying to like, I guess, like centermyself, you know, on the sense and, yeah, trying not totry not to waste energy where it doesn't belong. You know, like rightbefore I get into the cage, because if I sit there and get allpumped up and, you know, kind of like, you know, headbangermode and all, I'm a bit yeahs and Shit. It's like I do. By time you get it to the cage, it's like, I feellike twenty percent your energy is already gone. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah,like getting acously. You got to conserve. Yeah, like I'm I'mat that age of just like conserving what I got, you know, Idon't want to walk up to the cage and like Oh, fuck, likeI'm tired, you know. So I just try to keep calm, likeI'm like right now. I feel like I'm on like some like like ShallonBuddhist monkshit right now. Just trying to be like, you know, azen and stuff be level, and you know, I've come down a lot, like you know, like lately, since since our last couple interviews.Like you know, you're breaking out FONSO's...

...heart right now, Christian. Hehad a whole dance routine choreographed for your ante, but now he's got toput it away. Now I'm just have to do it, but myself,dude, I was watching, I seen it for the first time. Itwas. It's it just came out on Netflix. I seen it. It'shere comes a boom. Yeah, you know, Great, I love thatmovie. You thin guy comes out the shoulder pads in the spike. Yeah, that movie have me cracking USNA. Dude, is awesome. Yeah,that's that moves. That's definitely good. I fucking love the fact that aboss routine is in it. And Oh yeah, I love his character inthat movie. Dude. Yeah, I think dude, he's awesome. Isit Joe Rogan on it too? I think so. I haven't I thinkso. I haven't gotten that far. Like I've only watched you like threequarters of the movie. Okay, all right, we won't spoil up.Yeah, I won't say that. Don't say anything about the Monkey, monkeymore than pineapple or the donkey. That was that was the x rated version. That was also been watching some weirdass movie. If I'll, Fonso givesyou a box of VHS tapes. Don't watch him with your mom and Dad. Trust me. That's the Grand Prize, man. That's that's what we giveat the end of the year for for for every guess coming on theshow. You'll be getting my fourteen year old son doesn't even know to VHS. Has Your boxes in the mail. Christian, is a Damn Shane.This is a VHS boy s kidding out days. They don't even know.I hope to fix the track and Sonny and then we strikes the tracking onthe man Chesshad. Yeah, that's fucked that man, man. And sometimeswhen they can fix it, you got to throw the whole thing. Oh, you know, that's funny, man. I love VHS. Dude. Weset a room full of VHS. As I remember growing up, mymom meets to buy every single movie on Bhs that came out. There's likea whole wall of behs is dude. Yeah, now, we never did. We just went to the rented it out and get to pay all thosefucking fees at the end of the because, especially because you didn't want lock butcharger. Huh, all her it, because you didn't blackbuster video depot.Huh. Yeah, I remember those days. Frank would always just tryto go to the nudy sections once behind the curtain. He's WHUSI. It'swhere the good ones are. I didn't know what was back there. Howam I supposed to know? You would always just go random. Do youknow? I see the most random people walking at walking out of that checkingyou know over there. Guy. Yeah, you never want to see the peoplecoming out of that place. Yeah, that Foo's got a stack of moviesand he is in a like a little gift Baghor something runny. NowI got to get somewhere. All right, Christian, I got one last questionfor you here. Yeah, this is talking about old school and inMay fighters like vandidly FEDOR mellion Ainko. I don't know if you remember badderysilver back in the day when he would fight, before he would fight,he will kind of like fold his hands over themselves and then kind of likerotate his wrists like a little like he's...

...opponent across the cage right, yeah, Fade. Or when he would get that face to face, right beforethe fight would start, he wouldn't even stare ahead his opponent. He wouldjust like kind of look down at his feet. Deep. How would youstay like like a ritual or any our superstitions that you follow before getting intothe cage or on your way to the cage? I feel like they changeevery time, you know, like every time I enter the cage. It'slike it's such a surreal moment, you know, and I don't know,like I try not to do too much, you know, too much I showboating. You know, because, because, because, because right before you tookloves, like you don't know what's going to happen. So, likelike my last opponent before before he came out like he like he'd be likea little scream, like a little screech, like dream and I was like,Oh man, sorry kid for you, because it's like, Oh man,I'm gonna have some you know, like I just I don't like beinglike like made a fool. So for me it's just, you know,just focus, you know, like that's my thing, remain focus. Youknow, some people are about like that intimidation factor. They have a ritual, but I feel like I feel like my ritual is as I crawl upthe steps, you know, I kind of crawl up the steps and rightwhen I get in there, I just just boom, I turn on theswitch right there. You know, that's kind of my thing. You know, like like in my earlier days, I used to like, you know, come out to the middle of the cage and like do like a stompboom boom, you know, I mean like and kind of go back tomy corner, like, but I remember what I did that. I gotmy ass kicked after that by more stomps. You know, put my hands up, boom boom. Then that Shit, you know, but I was like, I come from a wrestling culture to, you know, like myold wrestling coach, like he's a used to really liking force has being humble, like if you want to kind of like, you know, before andafter your matches, you know, just focus. You know, if youwant to celebrate victory, do it. Do it somewhere else, you know, type thing. My it's hard to say, though, like what's goingto happen, you know, as soon as those lights in those cameras areput on you, because I don't know, man, I can't explain. It'slike something else just comes inside you and you just know what to do. I love it. You know, I'm excited for this, spy.I've been putting a lot of work, you know, cutting a lot ofweight.
