18:42

back to you don't worry Saturday night

18:43

I'm going to bring that back to you but

18:45

I just want to say UFC has a new

18:54

MVP for you Kevin obviously we've all

18:56

seen the highlights we've seen the knock

18:58

outs that mvp can do but how do you

19:00

think his wins over those Bal guys rank

19:02

against the guys you fought in the

19:06

UFC uh you

19:09

know they know we all know what the

19:13

difference is ask the boss what the

19:16

difference is it's a reason why

19:19

y'all pay for UFC fights and not

19:20

Bellator fights right I thought

19:24

so my first question is for Gilbert

19:27

Burns uh Gilbert I guess first off what

19:30

does it mean to hear to hear that

19:32

Ovation today after uh last time you

19:34

were here the crowd was a little more

19:35

split but pretty firmly behind you

19:40

today what was it like to hear that

19:42

Ovation when you walked out today I love

19:44

it I love

19:45

[Applause]

19:49

19:51

19:53

sure you get your tickets show up it's

19:56

going to be an amazing card and and

19:58

Miami going to be one of the official

20:00

homes from the

20:02

UFC and you have a tough rising star in

20:05

Jack Del Melina in front of you have you

20:07

been impressed at what he's done so far

20:08

in the UFC for sure he's tough he beat

20:11

my guy Kevin Holland was a good fight

20:13

this guy tough and uh we're going to put

20:17

on a show Saturday night I like the guy

20:19

respect the guy very very tough it's

20:21

going to be a good fight and for Jack on

20:24

the flip side of that coin um walking

20:26

into hostile territory is this something

20:28

that is you going to have to block out

20:30

on Saturday or does that come easy to

20:31

you yeah I appreciate it you know and I

20:34

look forward to stealing all these fans

20:35

so on Saturday night and for you uh

20:38

Gilbert's always been at the top of this

20:40

division right in line for a title shot

20:42

for the last couple years so for you

20:43

what kind of statement would you make

20:45

with a win over him do you

20:47

think yeah big statement you know crew

20:50

right into their top five and

20:54

Bounds question for Dana Dana the

20:57

turnout in Miami here is always amazing

21:00

I mentioned this to you a while ago but

21:01

21:03

opportunity that the UFC returns here
