00:00:17--> 00:00:18

So,

00:00:19--> 00:00:24

I want to cancel Welcome to a new episode of the house. I'm here joined with Professional MMA fighter

00:00:31--> 00:00:33

and he is off by

00:00:34--> 00:00:36

train with my teacher here.

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

Just like me

00:00:48--> 00:00:51

that day you know when you when you spirited like you say

00:00:56--> 00:00:58

they say 99% of the run.

00:01:01--> 00:01:29

Anyways, we're here, we're gonna react to the press conference between Habib and McGregor. It's really interesting watching it. I mean, to be honest with you from even an entertainment perspective, I mean, even if you're not a sports fan whatsoever, just watching that scene, how Conor McGregor was acting and things like that it was quite it's quite funny in many ways. Before we start the Roman sisters Don't forget to support our work inshallah and the link below don't forget to donate, make dua and share this video to your friends and family. That's really important for us to but we're gonna find out Yeah, I think it was more than a fight when there was a lot going on. There

00:01:29--> 00:01:34

was like, strategies in place. Let's dig into it. Was it this particular fight?

00:01:36--> 00:02:14

I came back for the law of this to come and shoot this man. Oh, I live in a rock a little weasel, a little hard mountain groups. I've met many of them through my years, a man who grows in numbers but on his own and when confronted in a similar situation cowers away, and that's what you saw with the boss over there. He his jokes, other other dudes from his own country, man, and I knew they gotta do anything. And that's it. I came back for the love of fighting and the love of war. And this I am going to truly, truly love putting a byes by beating on this little glass jaw rock.

00:02:17--> 00:02:57

Connor we're pretty cordial with each other. I'm almost friendly. fanboy, the man was a fanboy. He bought t shirts of mine. He said part of the cause you remember your little farm boy, your little farm boy. He bought t shirts to support the cause nothing but respect. And then and then off on his neck of the woods. Am I involved in something who was actually who's now in prison. But Vladimir Putin locked him up for 150 million worth of money from the Russian Russian people started to invest and pump money into his gym. So he started to grow in power, decided not to gain this false power. It's not taken. He was a little hard man to have good. Then did the farmer jump mind he gets knocked

00:02:57--> 00:03:21

over now he's not being left. And now here, I have to put the nail in the coffin. That's how it began. He was a farm boy. Tony was a little hard man after a while with some money, like many people do munia numbers. Now the money's gone, that numbers are still there. But trust me, he has his own country man, his own people, that he's that he's turned his back on. They want to see him gone to and I am going to do it in the name of the Russian people.

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

Over here, do you think sometimes, you know, when I was watching that it's like,

00:03:26--> 00:03:31

you know when you know, you're foreigner. Let's say for example, if I'm fighting an opponent, opponent, and I'm a bit like

00:03:35--> 00:03:57

when I'm about to say doesn't fit in there, let's get to the point of which he's a boxer. He knows he's more. I see him as like, you know, his experience. Now, I know that if I feel like that, I'm going to try to get one over him psychologically. Do you get it? So I think that's what's happening because he's going very personal when it's like he's done research. He's talking about stuff. That's political. Research. I mean, you saw, sorry.

00:03:59--> 00:04:04

You saw that there's one point at his press conference where he makes reference to Ali Abdelaziz Oh, I don't know.

00:04:06--> 00:04:22

And he makes very, very specific reference to the guy he's fun to. Yeah, but a family life is too big. So you think if he knew he knows this information he's done. He's got a team behind him? Yes. I think personally. People are reading a bit too much into it. Obviously, he's clearly not as resource wise mentioned

00:04:23--> 00:04:33

150 million into a gym and the Guardian embezzling money and I don't know if that's true or not. But he has done some research and he's trying to get one up in the press conference.

00:04:35--> 00:04:40

I think is working. Yeah. What What do you think like looking at the psychology of those two men, what do you

00:04:42--> 00:04:51

need to judge at this moment, but don't you think there's a bit of like, insecurity on the credit side is really loud? Like that, but it's just like something different about him. I will always say something different.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

From the beginning, when you said I came up with this, I don't think he came about for a little bit. I think he's pretty smart. I came up for his whiskey.

00:05:00--> 00:05:06

Yeah that's what I think he put the ball out he also cops although that that song in Barcelona by but

00:05:07--> 00:05:27

the way I see Habib is very calm McGregor's. I think he's just trying to get into his head. Yes personally, trying to make him angry try make him lose focus, trying to do the same thing you did to Aldo. You see what he did to Aldo Aldo undefeated world champion for 10 years. And when I just made him totally bought so i think i think is a bit

00:05:28--> 00:05:31

better is not only in the rink. That's definitely not

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

response to what Connor said. This is

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

interesting terms of what what would you expect?

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

I'm coming here for Smash.

00:05:51--> 00:05:52

Smash me

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

see me at the outside the post now.

00:06:00--> 00:06:19

Outside of posts, I showed you my hands, no weapons, the first teammates when I showed up at that bush, I showed not my hands to let him know I come here own arms, no weapons, step off the bush, you talk a big game now I'm here. He don't know, then he took it on that bush hit 100

00:06:21--> 00:06:26

women and cause what happened to happen? So that's that question Who's getting to Who knows?

00:06:28--> 00:06:37

What do you mean? Who is getting agitated? Obviously corners getting angry by limiting yourself again, this can be interpreted in two ways. It could be interpreted and

00:06:39--> 00:07:15

it could be interpreted either is that he's actually like really angry. Like, for some reason. He's, he's angry because of the situation that he's in. People are talking about him. I mean, he reads comments online, don't think that someone is not reading and listening to commentaries of people saying that he's gonna get taken down, he's gonna get beaten up. So he's angry because this is the guy that's kind of in the way of his legacy. And in a way yeah, it could be or it could be that he's actually overly excited. Because someone with that kind of disposition that standing up and acting in that frantic way is either really only manifesting one or two emotions, whether it's excitement

00:07:15--> 00:07:18

or fear. Oh, yeah, I wouldn't say

00:07:20--> 00:07:22

I can see fear and if I'm being honest, I'm not gonna

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

say God governor.

00:07:27--> 00:07:52

I think he feels a little bit embarrassed by the fact that obviously the situation with a boss Everyone knows that his teammates and his best friend autumn he got confronted by Habib in the hotel even slept, he got slapped basically and he didn't do anything. Obviously people are saying he was surrounded with a few people when he didn't but at the end of the day that just if you told me your friends I'll tell you You are the end of the day. So the way I see it, like even Habib his team, everyone that's with him they're all the same

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

you can say all you just have to smash

00:08:00--> 00:08:01

it

00:08:04--> 00:08:04

just

00:08:06--> 00:08:06

fill

00:08:10--> 00:08:10

in the belly

00:08:18--> 00:08:27

I'm gonna go like I lost five happy but like, I don't drink Why don't you drink? I don't drink I don't drink I never drink booze or party I never my backwards.

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

Me hands on you.

00:08:33--> 00:08:42

Because you mad backwards? Something's off here. Yeah. Number two. Look, if you have a problem with someone if I have a problem with you, yeah, hopefully I want one day because

00:08:44--> 00:08:53

if I have a problem with you, the last thing I'm gonna do is offer you anything. I'm sorry. But if you're nervous, if I'm nervous, and I'm all over the place, and I'm trying to have these plans or whatever, why would you drink? No. Why would you if you

00:08:54--> 00:09:01

guys obviously, he's done his research. He knows that he's a practicing Muslim, religious. Okay, I see what

00:09:02--> 00:09:07

he's trying to he's trying to put a spanner in the works and you'll realize that anything which implicitly

00:09:08--> 00:09:16

references his religious he, yeah, he starts using what backwards? Yeah, yeah. That's offensive, that

00:09:17--> 00:09:51

I can see what he's trying to say. We're not ignorant like sometimes you can say something. And it could you don't have to say something about for example, a religion or religious people, but you're trying to get that in my opinion. But don't you think that's because if it was just a one off, it would be just a one off but he everytime that made those reference to kind of religion, he used the word backwards, which is typically traditionally associated with Middle Easterners and these things know himself as a Christian. So how does it Yeah, and that's another point you'll see in the in the in the press conference that he starts making reference to the Lord Jesus Christ. So if you have

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

taken offense to that, like, What if he says, Man, I mean, think of it from the other way around. Like he's saying he goes a bit hardcore in this in this press conference.

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

So he says, something's like, I'm gonna kill you. He was what's going on with you? He goes, You should have come off the bus you would have been?

00:10:07--> 00:10:26

I mean, you'd have been under the ground, I would have been in prison. Yeah. And he was being serious about that. To be honest. I think the people that are watching this, I think they should tag him and asked him a question. Yeah. What did you mean by that person? If you watching this top 10 tablet video and asked him a question, why did he say that? Why did you know for me, personally, I just have used reaction to that. He didn't care.

00:10:29--> 00:10:34

He didn't care. You could even see some interviews that he held after the press conference. He was like, don't stop this guy saying,

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

I don't care what you say, when I know sixth of October, I'm there to fight. And

00:10:40--> 00:10:55

he doesn't want to lose corners, but he doesn't want to lose any friends. That's why I keep saying I'm gonna do this in the name of the Russian people. Yeah. Because he knows that to be to be frank. Yeah, can be. He comes from a country of let's say 150 million people and stuff. Really and truly.

00:10:57--> 00:11:25

How many of those people would want to see can be booted because there's a lot of Islamophobia in, in Russia? Yeah. And Dagestan and Chechnya, and then places there. They're not seen as, like, for example, mainland Russia, same thing. So you'll find that within if you do a survey, I'm just kind of speculating here. If you do a survey within Russia, with the support the question would be would they support can be in the same way as they would support something like Povetkin? Who's a boxer Not only that, if they're Christian, they'll most likely support my brother.

00:11:26--> 00:11:34

Russia. Christian. This the point I'm making No, no, no, I send you a message we talk with you. Yeah, message.

00:11:37--> 00:11:37

Me, okay.

00:11:39--> 00:11:42

My message like without everybody what?

00:11:44--> 00:11:46

We're gonna play, we're gonna play.

00:11:48--> 00:11:56

I hope so. I hope so. Because if you pull out like you always do pull out. May God have mercy on your soul. You sit down.

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

Okay, we don't want to talk.

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

I slip your teammates why you don't send message

00:12:08--> 00:12:11

what you can with 40 to play you can play and you think you can

00:12:13--> 00:12:16

if you took it off that bush you'd be dead now. You'd be dead.

00:12:17--> 00:12:23

But what's what's what's change? Nothing. And six October 6 October 6 October we're gonna see

00:12:25--> 00:12:39

a friend of mine talking about is he trying to say that I slapped your friend. If you wanted to deal with a situation you could have messaged me and wouldn't be Why did you come to me? Yeah, basically since they had interactions before all these problems have they had interactions they have spoken privately both of them Oh, is it? Yeah.

00:12:40--> 00:12:42

This way this way before you took me years ago, oh.

00:12:44--> 00:12:56

McGregor came up to guys in the food and he said you had an interaction with me from before off the ice. Because when I stopped your friend and you had a problem with me wanting you private message me say look, I got a problem with you come to school sort this out. That's that's what have you seen?

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

The way I see he's just speaking facts.

00:13:00--> 00:13:02

He's just a showman. He's just nervous.

00:13:05--> 00:13:19

I think he's insecure though. Because he knows that there is a he knows that there's an easy argument to make against him on this one. And people are making it seem that he's gonna lose the fight and these things and that's what's making him angry, because he doesn't want people to say it that way. But you can get to

00:13:21--> 00:13:52

actually now the more the more I see of him talking the more I realize that he's actually physically and we have to actually have to take a deep breath I'm really nervous. He's maybe both but it's probably more important my psychological This is very interesting. It's just it's not really my testicles. He was so nervous before the fight someone like Mike Tyson will appear is very important man. This is called prize fighting by tangley I'm such a crafty individual with my with my auto antibodies on my entire game as a whole that I don't have to put him back to Bama murmur

00:13:54--> 00:13:55

booked up

00:13:56--> 00:13:58

you have to fight on the boat because

00:13:59--> 00:14:00

Pete with

00:14:02--> 00:14:10

tank the Lord you had to praise the Lord Jesus. He said that. And this is the thing I was going to

00:14:11--> 00:14:16

ask you do you think that because we don't see him saying this stuff as much I mean, the last press conference he was saying that

00:14:19--> 00:14:26

he said a lot of things he said something Why do you think he's bringing this up? It's become more like this there's a religious

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

belonging because

00:14:30--> 00:14:36

his principles as religious you know feels like follows Do you think that gives him like some kind of rocker because he sees that he doesn't he does have a belong

00:14:38--> 00:14:42

to McGregor wants to try to bring it bring forward some kind of Crusaders narrative right now.

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

Let me come to you easily can we can turn this into a Muslim Christian thing. It can easily happen. And I think he's doing that, you know, don't think he's doing that. I think he's trying to solve a fight any way he can. Nah, man. I think he's so good. And he's trying to attack the beam as much as he can. Like, that's why he's bringing that

00:15:00--> 00:15:29

Bring in stuff that he doesn't usually do. So what does that show you this? This is like if you come and say to me, you know, it usually goes and fights with this, but this time is brought something else. Why? Because I'm scared. I think he's bringing this sort of stuff up because he knows that Habib is a religious man, conservative Muslim. Yeah, yeah. But even if you look at what you brought up against all these other previous opponents against Aldo saying that like the hero, Brazil, when he went to Brazil, I'm going to be the king of Brazil. I'm going to do this I'm going to do that. We're going to Chad Mendez, tell him you're short, midget wrestling etc, etc, etc. When you fought

00:15:29--> 00:15:41

Diaz he was bringing up all your some gangster essay from the 100 what you teach kids and do all this sort of stuff and with BJJ and then we can see so make a exactly, I guess Eddie Alvarez going and saying I'm gonna go choke by him. Yeah,

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

that's true, but

00:15:45--> 00:15:57

he's just using anything he can but he feels we'll get to his opponent that's what I don't think is that deep personally, because even if you look at McGregor over a lot of his fights in the run up is always like this but as soon as the fight ends it's always been respectful

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

it's not the same opponent okay.

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

From their land

00:16:05--> 00:16:20

lives my family my bloodline the McGregor clan, we stood and we fought we fought the English Empire so much so that we are named was Spanish for 100 years by King James at the time Okay. Okay. What Why do you change your language?

00:16:22--> 00:16:25

language? What's wrong with you? Now you're talking about

00:16:26--> 00:16:27

English he

00:16:29--> 00:16:29

wasn't talking about

00:16:32--> 00:16:33

basically

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

he's saying all my family for against the British Empire

00:16:40--> 00:16:42

I mean, just reply to it change the language to English

00:16:43--> 00:16:55

that's what I'm saying this was all to be honest. The straight facts why Yeah, like obviously we're gonna have felt the need to have to start speaking Irish mama Tanya pops to him to be able to be done. But it's a fair point

00:16:56--> 00:17:03

is a fair point and he's too fixated on okay young people but chasing the cliffs and this and that and etc. To be honest.

00:17:04--> 00:17:31

I think he's just trying to play on anything that he feels we'll get to happy because everyone knows that Dagestan and Chechnya and stuff like hello conflict recently as well. In recent history, not not too far off. what he's talking about, I don't know how long ago was 100 200 years or last time it was a war with the British Empire was long time. You know, when they when they go? Yeah, when they go when they go? independence, maybe it was like 1917 IRA, the IRA?

00:17:32--> 00:17:35

No, IRAs Roth 3040 years ago, my boys talking about

00:17:38--> 00:17:48

salaam aleikum and Connor congrats on now proper 12 Thank you. So could we get an official prediction on the fight? You cannot say salam aleikum and congrats about whiskey.

00:17:50--> 00:17:53

Whoo. Slap on them.

00:17:55--> 00:17:59

What are you gonna do about that? Is that the disrespecting it? Man? I just shut your mouth.

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

What's up?

00:18:03--> 00:18:07

Thanks, Connor. Hi, Sean. I appreciate that. Assalamu alaikum olara.

00:18:08--> 00:18:14

So as you can see the question I asked. He says Somalia Somalia corn

00:18:16--> 00:18:18

whiskey. So

00:18:21--> 00:18:22

yeah.

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

Someone whiskey

00:18:28--> 00:18:45

is almost non Muslim. If he's coming and saying I respect Salam Alikum to congratulate someone for promoting propagating something which is antithetical to your faith. No, but the question is not for the question. I say congratulations on your whiskey nobody said ceremony complete and congratulations

00:18:47--> 00:18:48

upon somebody

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

okay. Congratulations on the pornography.

00:18:53--> 00:18:56

Would you congratulate someone says nobody thing is okay. There's

00:18:57--> 00:19:02

no How can you congratulate as you're showing as if you're pleased with congratulate like

00:19:05--> 00:19:09

why would why would Muslim depends on the judges

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

not Muslim. Muslims Muslims.

00:19:14--> 00:19:30

Okay, that's what I'm seeing. I'm seeing that maybe Alex is a non Muslim. You know, Santa Monica is the messenger, I think as a Muslim was Mr. Habib salaam aleikum to you. Yeah. And you congratulation if he was a Muslim. You're right. 100% I'm seeing I think he's not Muslim. Oh, okay. Yeah. If he's not Muslim, yeah. So

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

if he is wrong, and if he isn't, I can see what I can see.

00:19:44--> 00:19:47

From that, I can see what you're saying. But you see how he used to work backwards again.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

Really, yeah. So whenever there's something to do, this was not what he said. He said, But once again, yeah, yeah. Okay, if that's the case, if as many of us can tag him, tweet our way.

00:20:00--> 00:20:33

You can find him and asked him why did you call me backwards? What was the intention? What did you mean by? I think this happened. We went onto the window. Why is he calling backwards? Because it was done in conjunction with alcoholism, it was done in conjunction with Why not? Because the thing is that alcohol obviously Islam is in opposition to alcohol. So it's Christianity, not about not in an explicit sense. Jesus turned water into wine. Yeah. No, no. Okay. For us, clear versus gorgons. He knows that he's done his research on khabib. So he knows that he's religiously observant, he knows that he's a conservative Muslim. So is he trying to associate that conservatism or that

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

traditionalism?

00:20:35--> 00:21:08

And if so, that's something to be questioned about. But there's something else here. If we really just think about the claim here, why every time alcohol has been referenced, backwardness has been associated with it as if alcohol is progressive, yeah, because the antithesis of backwardness is a progressive progressive isn't it? Is the thing like sociologically if you look at a society, right? Where, where for example, binge drinking is the cultural norm, like we live in the UK with that sounds a part of the culture. He lives in Ireland is very much part of the culture I know because I grew up Irish family members, by the way, oh,

00:21:13--> 00:21:14

family Irish.

00:21:15--> 00:21:38

Oh, yeah. So the point is, this is part of the culture. So what I'm trying to say is this year, is that really and truly look at what how much like in the UK context, how much alcohol has caused the NHS, people going in at the knees and these things like accidents and they get into the weekend deadly diseases that they get as a result of of being alcoholics or whatever, is it the person

00:21:39--> 00:21:48

the harm is greater than the person Okay, if they're backwards Then what about recent studies where the medical experts come in and see the harm is greater than the good

00:21:50--> 00:22:21

or the bad as well. There's no doubt about it. You never noticed the difference between winning or losing is taking limits he was a drinker before he gets into a fight with someone like a beep No, I think I think his statement has had the desired effect because we're talking about it right now. And then that pressure might be able to do the lifting and I've got all this weight on my shoulders and I have to go perform now but you know what no no fire likes controversy surrounding his course his image in that way like for example Tyson fury when he when he made those comments against

00:22:22--> 00:22:43

homosexuals and stuff like that. It affected it probably even contribute to the pressure to get it. So anyways, guys, it's been interested in commentate commentating commentating on the press conference. It's been an interesting one it commentary with you guys, for coming on the show. Thank you, Eddie. Thanks again.

00:22:44--> 00:22:49

And, and the one thing I'd like to end the show with is something very, very important, and it's not so much

00:22:50--> 00:22:59

advice for Conor McGregor. It's not an advice name. It's an advice for himself. You know, there's a head if you're watching this, you know, try and send it to them and get through to them.

00:23:00--> 00:23:02

You know, mutual friends get richer never know.

00:23:04--> 00:23:18

Can we, I was gonna say to you is as a beautiful Heidi flower used to kind of think about setting up the Prophet, Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. He said, mentor, Dalai Lama or of Allah, so beautiful Hadith. whoever humbles himself to Allah, Allah is in stature.

00:23:20--> 00:23:27

Here's the thing going into this fight, or any or anything that you're doing in life, even receiving lots of praise, and this is something for all of us.

00:23:28--> 00:23:39

Not just those who are fighters, or those who are on the public platform, I've just all of us in general, if we humble ourselves to the Creator, the sustainable motto is Allah.

00:23:40--> 00:24:23

Allah will raise you that this continues so that in yourself you'll feel as if you're the lowest, but to the people you'll be seen, as as high. But if you try to aggrandize yourself to the people, Allah will humble you. So be careful because one of the quickest ways to lose Not only this, this fight of corner, but the fight of the heaven, the Hereafter is by being arrogant and that is the one of the worst in Islam. The worst one of the worst sins to be is arrogant. Now I'm not saying you obviously Kevin is actually quite humble person. And as you said, you know, when he was confronted Afterwards, he said, I want to be a good role model for the kid which is very good. Yeah. But always

00:24:23--> 00:24:36

remain humble. And that's my advice. And just to wrap up Robin sisters Don't forget right after this inshallah maybe next week we're gonna be releasing a video on the fear of boxing wasn't I wasn't allowed. combat sports, combat sports, whatever it is inshallah.

00:24:37--> 00:24:46

Do keep an eye inshallah we will be on his channel. I will see you. And once it's out, we'll put the link at the end of the video. Till next time. Assalamu aleikum wa barakato goodbye.
