UFC fighter Kajan Johnson and ET Canada online writer Shakiel Mahjouri invite MMA’s most colourful personalities to share crazy, entertaining and personal stories.
Eryk Anders drops in to dish on his beef with Drake and explain why he believes he beat Elias Theodorou at UFC 231. He and the hosts also talk about the transition from traditional sports to MMA and dissect the social media chaos in the UFC’s lightweight division.
Eryk Anders: “Man, I think anybody Drake supports should have beef.”
Eryk Anders: “‘Bama got smashed by probably the biggest margin that they’ve lost by since Coach Saban’s been there. Serena Williams, Conor McGregor, the list goes on and on. He needs to sit back… Just keep it Toronto, do not curse anybody else.”
Eryk Anders: The ultimate. I don’t think there is a bigger person in the history of sport. That dude just jumps from team to team… He gotta keep that ‘Bama stuff off.”
Eryk Anders: “I think the only opinions that matters are the three judges. Do I think they got the call right? No. I think he won the first round, I know I won the second.”
Eryk Anders: “Here is the thing. He landed eight more strikes than I did in the third round, but I was pushing the pace. My punches landed and significant strike percentages were higher. I think the eight strike differential [should not discredit] octagon control, aggression, all the other criteria they are supposed to score the fight on. I think I won the second and third round. I broke my hand in the second round and I still almost knocked him out. He won, congratulations to him. It is what it is.”
