Solo Brock has dropped some -- he's listed at 63 to 75 tell me about. His health tell me about Brock lesnar is he good to go and the guy we saw before before he was out for essentially year. Yeah he's back in a 100% the crazy thing about it is the doctor said that before this happened. He you know that this thing has been happening to him for a long time it did just didn't happen overnight he was only at sixty or 70%. -- Now he's got a hundred that's scary in itself you know everybody knows how big an explosive and how powerful Brock lesnar is. And how many things he's accomplished. And such a short amount of time when a lot of people don't know -- -- car -- the guy who he's facing his undefeated twelve and all mixed martial arts. And what's even more impressive than that. -- every one of those fights have been finished in the first round bye in the knockout or submission so this is a huge test for Brock lesnar on Saturday night. I mentioned earlier both of these guys have a wrestling background of course Brock is a former NCAA wrestling champion at the university. Minnesota went to WWE for a while even tried out with the Minnesota Vikings at all four. I training camp trying to make it as a detectable the National Football League -- tell me about the time that he walked into your office or every -- to lobby you back in 2007. And he said it.

Right now is exactly how went down he actually yeah actually came to one event. And grab it's -- like the talk you have to be event. We went into one of the back -- -- to listen I want to fight the USC and at that time here and won the mixed martial arts fight he had only had one and I laughed and said. -- this isn't the place where you come to learn how to fight up slightly smaller leagues and work your way up -- as I've bought a smaller league. I don't like it I wanna be here I mean they're good at this from not. So you know. I had to make the decision whether or not to bring this guy and I did and this day I'm still blown away by this earlier. By what he's accomplished at such a short amount of time if he can get through this fight on Saturday I believe that this is -- not only the biggest test of his career.

Are you are from Manchester Connecticut just outside Hartford not too far from New York City in the state -- New York why what the State of New York not give you. They license to hold events there why you're not sanction of the State of New York. I have no clue and absolutely makes no sense we were this close this time. You know outlook we were on the budget and then the carpet got pulled out from underneath us I don't know why I've been promoting this fight all week so I'm really got into that he had here's the reality we're section and every other statement. In the country that hasn't athletic commission. And we're section and many other countries around the world com we have an incredible economic impact we come into a city small fifteen million dollars plus two million dollars in taxes okay. That that that a city or state all reached the benefits -- we command but more important and that. A ten year safety record in the ten year record of success it's insane it it's. It there's no reason we shouldn't be a New York. It's amazing amid the lawmakers have been -- but I city economic impact you could have understatement when you do get a cleared up because I think they are smart enough there in the State -- New York that's where I'm from a hopefully he'll go out with -- all the lawmakers -- midi player around the golf on Bethpage black out on Long Island. I gotta I -- back had a casting about for comments because David and you sound a little like Vince McMahon I'm very impressed the way you are able to market. And then they do such a good job -- -- FS and -- USC in particular but. Why would you be so disparaging to the sport of golf and had a lot of golfers probably got to watch your card on Saturday night was that. Unsolicited what why did you speak out so -- against the great game of golf yesterday -- that shocked me. We've got to golfer. We've got to come under this that this thing that's good but I know he just golfers for example you know what people say.
