It is never my intention to ask a “tough” question for the sake of it. There has to be purpose behind it. In this case, I felt this was appropriate because of Chael’s retirement announcement, and how frequently he has discussed the importance of this figure in his life.
Anyone who knows Chael will not be surprised by this part, but he has since told me he appreciated the question, because he credits his relationship with his father and what his father instilled in him for how LONG he stayed in a sport that is so incredibly demanding.
Chael has talked about the influence his late father had on his athletic career (and life, of course) for years. On the night he retired, I thought it was not only appropriate, but necessary, to ask him what he thought his father would say to him about what he accomplished.
Brendan Loughnane was urinating blood after his win last night on Contender Series. (Video courtesy of his IG: https://instagram.com/brenz264?igshid=1pkmncq9q95nv …. H/t @mma_kings)
Just ran into Tyron Woodley (@TWooodley) at Contender Series in Vegas. He's out here rehabbing his right hand. Said things are going well, looking at a fall return. Also mentioned another fun media opportunity he's involved in. I'm assuming more info on that will come out soon.
Talking to Dana White more about it now, he says public is invited to Contender Series. Just show up. No ticket necessary. Says random people have occasionally showed up to fights at the TUF gym for years and he’s always let them in. I had never heard/noticed that before.
Update on Kron Gracie, his team tells me he won’t be fighting at UFC 242 in August in Anaheim, unfortunately. UFC apparently tried to get him on there but the bout didn’t materialize and they are now looking at a later date. Kron would like to accept a fight soon, I’m told.
