I like to go to stadiums. There are no covered places. This would have to be in a football stadium. They build one. They could build one. Yes we can build one. You probably believe that this happens. I think this is the first news for me. Can you imagine yourself against

Alex

? Yes, in Nigeria, yes. breaking news so you actually like I said hunters now hunted yeah wow they never told you this. he was just pointing at nobody ok its too late like you are chan boosman n was the champ francis may be dating who knows whats going on with him did they miss the train? etched in history forever this is like there are moments in history that will never ever be it's not over either it's not over like i said but there are moments in history that will never be recaptured that will never be repeated and i'm very proud to say i was a part of it you know what i mean i'm a part of it again because we're still writing the book this is not to say the game isn't over i thought it was over but yeah i guess putting the coin again. will play again second biggest gate in MSG history not UFC event in MSG period MSG behind first UFC event yeah and a machine how crazy Madison Square Garden is second biggest gate ever, that's great thanks to you a nigerian boy. yeah crazy at that's crazy that's what i mean as little moments like when you think you can't help but feel you smile is grateful like i did that we did that's crazy what's the lesson for any kid who might be down at this moment and that would make him react like we were talking earlier like what do you want yeah don't project I think people in life just are what they are it's the fear of judgment I think especially with these kids these days man , I'm glad we didn't have this when I was in school because I know a lot of kids lose their lives because when they get out of school they follow them home people love to let you know the rumors on Twitter or whatever or you know they kids are stupid too but yeah never it's not the end i even told this kid this kid interviewed me last week jazzy uh i don't know if you know she's like this little girl who interviews rappers and artists and all or that, I was surprised after the Empire State Building uh okay what's a look down and she was interviewing me and she asked me the same question at the end, what advice would she give to kids? and i just said don't look don't look it's ok now because most kids like me have seen it in an elementary or middle school when they look there. the starting five or whatever or the top 15 as we like to say in New Zealand for rugby and then that's their peak and then they talk about when they were in high school when they were 30. oh I could have been in the All Blacks but my knee blew up I said nah don't look if they're looking that's cool don't peak your life is going to get better they peak now they peak later in life because kids too think this is forever and they're just too focused on them now that they don't realize there's so much
