This is the average to savage podcast with Paul Greno everyone in anyone, athletes, suets and much more. WHAT'S UP, everybody? It's the tenth episode of the average savage podcast. I got another special guests, Jose Shorty Toros, was a what's up? What's you God? Have Yourself. I'm alive, so I came complain. All right. So how about you give us like a brief background about yourself? Oh Man, this is the hardest parts, kind of like telling your own your own story, you know, but making a movie. I ever seen that day? You know, you just want to overt aggerate everything. I always say I'm a typical luck you know, coming up with the typical lucky if bringing. You know it's in Chicago. It's always rough, but it's the upbringing you know you're given, and I've used all my ups and downs pretty much make me the person I am today and then push me through a lot of versity and finding, you'll see. But yeah, I'm a person who know what's Chicago, moved to area which is subber right next to Chicago, and you know, it's my little hood. Yeah, high school, I got to the junior college, push through that and they're getting the full ride graduating them country university with the major in Kinisiology, or pretty much leadership, is sports and exercise signs both. All of our classes together it could be label as knisiology. And you know, after that I turned tro got a tightness. See, I was a multiple time. We watch champions, amateur, Pan America, medalist college, all American imaccolates literally go far and foreign. I definitely don't want to take too much time on that, but actually I got called by the UC last minute, nine day the notice, and now I'm on another last minute. You'll see call August fourth an Salix press. So fore, want and how do you see it? You know, as a problem. Looking forward to going on, I know, very soon. Yeah, for sure. So going back to college, to college for wrestling, right. Yeah. So, you know me, man, after high school was, you know, given out, was a job and people do my homework. I was popular and I never really paid attention to try to do page in school and the by the time I was like, Oh man, I got to take serious, it was already too late. Yeah, I was already doing very, very poor and easy teach us or college, college prep classes and stuff like that. I I just wasn't a student at any college wanted to to accept. So I was like, you know what, let me let me take a three choices. Do I continue working as a pizza delivery boy? Do I just, you know, say screwed, I'm enjoin the military, you know, that's where I think I'm best at. or so I try to go to junior college and see where I can go from thereon me, I thought junior college, it should be the first opportunity. I went there. Luckily, my family wasn't the most wealthy at the time and yeah, was able to get funded by financial aid. Got To go to junior college. In the first semester, got my first ever three point out because like Oh wow, I can actually do this. Next to Mester get three point two. That, three point six and three point eight end up being as hoish site. And I ended up also being all American in college. So instead of just getting a scholarship on college, when I order to my university, I finally transit over to I got a full ride on academics as well. So I was not just a good athlete, but I was also smart one as well, being for sure. So what got you into MMA? Right after college or would you do like right after college? Well, for me, I've been doing marchartsel four years old. So I've been just sorry I got my black Ben K are. I want to do something new. Let's do wrestling. Okay, I want to do something new. I was large. Juts are new. So I just kept on makes it. Hell do I know? I see W EC and all these shows and I was just like, there's a bunch of small guys fighting. I'm saying, just be a Vidas your favor all the team outfamo guys, which were known to be in the small short wrestling wrestling type fighters. I was like, if they could do it, I could do it too. So I start practicing time the gym where I'm at today. Combat though, with Master Bob, Shermer and sister all annoyed. You know the honestly. The rest sister, I kept on just winning championships, Wayne Belts and now mat where I'm at today. So I mean even through college I trained. So even through the six months of wrestling and all the schooling, I ended up fighting, entraining all throughout that, every single week. For sure. So when we was when...

...was your first MMA? Man, my first MMA fight was when I was eighteen years old and it's like July. I think plenty. I could be two thousand and ten and ID losing by split decision against a guy who was five and know, at the way, class above me. I decided, because my opponent didn't show up, that screw it, I'm here, might as well fight. I bumped up against a very experienced guy that was ready to go prone, was going to go pro after he fought men. I was the first fighter to take him past the first round because he had nothing but five or five first round Tko's and after that went to the third round, and I mean him and I went back and forth to just you know, I wasn't I wasn't an am a fighter yet. Yeah, I was just a wrestler, I was just a Molli time fighter, I was just a karate expert. It wasn't transitioning Tim and that's something he best in me at kind of losing the the split decision, I believe it could have gone either way. But honestly, if I didn't lose that fight, I wanted to go on twenty five straight wins and man I want he is because, as I am right now, is profession night. It helps show me that I'm not. You know, I was a cocky teenager. I thought I was immune everything, you know, which I believe almost every teenager believes in the hood, just like, Oh, I could do this, I could do down'm never get any trouble and they're called never going to get hurt or anything. I'm I'm the best in the world or whatever, and I finally got bested. I was like man, I really got to start training. When I finally started training, that's that's a maybe the first time today, and so the first post really did you wonders and you're only lost Tuesday. Yeah, said it's it's been a huge thing and honestly, I think I think fighters need to lose, like yeah, you know, there's a flame floyd main, while there's an all the other guys that are still indefeated. But Alas, helps you so much. It really depends on how you take it. For me, I took it in a positive way of going, yeah, it's realistic, things going to happen, but put reality into my life, going, if I don't train the there's a better chance to get lose it. That's what happened that day. For sure, I mean even Floyd Wasson as amateur car. Yeah, and look where we ended up. Yeah, exactly. So how did it come about that you got to sign with tight n FC as your first pro contracting about that was and I really do say things happen for a reason. I went to rain, which is a country in the Middle East, very, very smile and I think it's the smallest country in the Middle East. It's called the diamond in the desert or the Pearl in the desert, and I ended up going there to sound of cage kids that the principal rain was making his own professional amateur and maintain the amateurs are full bar Raini's and the locals and the professional team. At the likes of frank yet your compute, the rebal beat office on Naket Chet, myself and a bunch of other guys that weren't the world championships turn pro. Well, I wanted to voice and I got noticed by the the principal rain. You brought me in. That's from there and they're meeting electric man like man was it still is the owner. Time to see, he was a manager of Alexoda, which was our team captain. There's a UC veteran and I end us for him by just by chance and like a man's like this kid's pretty good. And then later on the day we all had a team practice and I'm messing around, no noble met off and taking him down on he's taking me down. Why? Having a lot of fun, just going back and forward plane and likes. Is a good dude. Who The hell is this kid? I want to I want to sign them. Then he found out whole I was. He found out my resume, you know, a pioneer and Amateurman man all. He ended up give me a four fight contractor. From there, ended up being a champion in three fights. Then, yeah, just kept on going from there being a double weight class champion, be a multi defending champ three times total, and now today, because of them, I'm not just you see farther, but now a seven time world then any champion here for sure. I remember just researching you and everybody was telling me like like short, you're supposed to be in the UFC, UFCUFC, and then that was the whole thing. I remember every everybody was just waiting for you to make your UFC debut, and I finally happened in June. So how how did that all come about? That's crazy, as I had nine last minute UFC calls. Some of them were I couldn't take because I was injured, or some of them were apparent actually packed out to fight me because they know, whatever the case, you know, some people are injured to some people were just, you know, they're being fine,...

...happy and now training at time again. Things. Things all happen for reasons. So sadly I couldn't take those fights and I had fights where I accept the food, you see, but then I ended up getting injured doing last weight cuts. So this last one I was pumping up for thirty five pounds out fire. I had like maybe a two month, three months like Nime. Limbols are like college is now knowing what the Hell is going to happen next, they give me a last minute call on I'm twenty six pounds over the weight class. I go, Um, no, I'm not not doing a nine day weight cut. That's that's stupid. I yeah, well, I make the weight maybe, but I'm not going to perform. And then I talked to you know, my manutrition is nutrition, and he's like, dude, honestly, you can make the way you're just you were bumped up some bigger. You just fat, like you're fine, you're in shape. You just you're not, you know, eating. It should be in I can do I can do it in nine days. You have to say. That's like tough. And I don't know how many times are going to keep giving you these calls and you got nine last minute calls. More inevitably they're going to give you another last NIG call on. Honestly, are you ever ready? Just be prepared. Let's take the skin. While saw all my pride, I was my team, I took the find, I got the win. Yeah, for sure. So so what was it like? Just being in the UFC atmosphere, like just making your debut, getting getting the crazy knock out? Everything that happened is is a world wind. It was different where one. It seemed appropriate, though you know it's yeah, the last minute. I wasn't the best forms in the world and it obviously was the outcome. Out So hoping to but he wins it, win. I'm happy at a bigger paycheck than my usual tight to see, and you know I have a big upcoming sight that I'm super excited for. I just never had time to really know or prepare that I was fighting. You know, it's all the paper work, medical test, you know, the way to travel and and Oh, now I'm fighting. Think I'm afraid about this part. You also it wasn't my best force because of that, but I got to win and I was able to do what I do best. I'm just happy that the UC likes either keeping me in. You know, give me, give me another fight as soon as possible. Again, wasn't the call I was hoping for. I was hoping for a longer, you know, actual full training camp to let the EN show the world my my true scale. But Hey, you know, it's not like I wasn't training. I was definitely ready for this one. I'm just get the weight down last minute. I have a lot more time to do it. So I'm happy. But if it was the right team push from now, I would be where I'm at today. I officially say being bull see fighters freaking awesome. Everything Super Organize, everything is legit. You know, it's it's that you fee literally hold your hand for a lot of the things, just to make sure that you're getting ready to fight. Yeah, for sure. I think. I think everyone did need to see, like fans and supporters of USC just need to see, like what you guys go through like before fighting, just because, like, yeah, like you said, like getting medical tested, like all that stuff. I think it'll be cool, like a cool vlog behind the scene stuff. Dude, it's it's a lot of work, mainly if you have nine days. Again, these fighters have two three months to do it. I had nine days. So, yeah, he's Mackenzie turns, Darren tones, even your old barrows this way. It's like, I have no excuse. The twenty six times. That's quarter of my weight in nine days. You had two three months to get this all done and failed. Why? All they had more media. That's part of your job. You know, everything's organized. You don't have to say yes everything. It really is that much for problem. Trust me, people understand it. I had to deny interviews because then I'm Missr yes man. Usually I had to deny interviews because I was like a man, I'm I'm exhausted, I really can't do so, and everyone understood. That's part of the job. So for these people missing the weight then just not being a professional fighter. It's Air Tour Sport. Yeah, for sure. So let's walk us through your knock out of Juror Brooks. That went by Wall at we were. Yeah, it's crazy is that? The first round obviously didn't go the best. I got dropped and and usually I give you a first run anyway, since I like to come back my first day. I love powers, my opponent's power, strain, speed, all that, and I did, you know, say I got dropped. I just it was a great shotow wasn't expected, and the Kudos that. But after the first round my coach came up to me and none of them said anything about me get dropped because one cared. No one cared. They know how I fight. They're literally like, Hey, you, you're going to start trying now, like when the hell you're going to start fighting, because you're in a fight and this is the real deal, so what the hell? So I end up going out...

...there a second round. I started to push the pace, start to do the usual me was the most technical. Bay Guy Started doing me and got into a clench. He decided to go for a takedown pick me up. Well, I knew he was gonna go for the slams. That's just what he likes do. He's big and flashy, won't. I want to counter that. It's not that I was hoping to the knockout. I was hoping to scramble and landed a better position so I can get around and take his back, which, no matter what, if you were to days and stuff or not, I would have got this back. But in college, if you get picked up like that, you climbed down the body parallel. I pushed my chest up against his back, so it kind of hard. I had locked my hands around his hips so he could turn his body and well, he's still trying to force to throw his arm, go over extend them. When he tried to put my legs, my legs pretty much brought the force down on top of his head. They knocked himself out. He ended up days of themself. I took his back and all Sadday. I had to finish a job and that's just part of the sporting business, for sure. Did you know he was knocked out, like when you when you guys, when you guys fell on the ground? Yeah, I knew. He was days. I know feels like yeah, out out, but he was definitely tasty. was definitely still kind of moving. Wasn't anything fast. Yeah, it was kind of like a term. But you know, again, it's part of my job to justist get it done and had to take the opportunity. For sure. What was it like going viral Ya and fifty, because it's yeah, any publicity is good publicity, which is fine because it brings more attention to name my next fight. or it's the fact that when I win I had dominant plants. I have coming back man versity went. Yeah, I came back madversity. But to the normal average in the they stand, and I was educated as you and I are. Just you know, the the higher tears that literally down fights. They're like, oh, shorty was get his mail buck kicked and he got lucky because the guys sign himself on his side of goase. You look at it that way. I don't look at it that way, but that's what most people do and that's that's how it came out in all the new speeds, is that I got lucky and Jared Brooks is dumb for not going to self out. So it's kind of a lose for both of us. But again, my name is out there and I have something to proven my next sight because of it. For sure. I mean yeah, regardless I think it was just great that your name got out there. But so you're fighting August fourth. You have see two hundred and twenty seven versus Alex Perez. He's twenty and for is, three losses by submission and one lost by decision, so he hasn't got knocked out yet. So how do you see the fight playing out? Yeah, that's that's my goals. And not come out. I don't know who he's fought stand up wise, but he's yeah, I'm a guy that pushes forward, so to see. I think, honestly, it's going to be a great matchup because we're both young, hungry, you know, luck, you know, fighters and literally like to make it a Mexican boxing match and I was going to move back and it's really who's going to move back first that I think is going to loose the fight. You know, it's he's a good wrestler, I'm gonna Wrestler. We're both greats and the fighters, and I think that's going to be the tail of the tape. That's is he gonna try to take this down, because that's that's not my goal. No matter if I'm winning or losing, the sand up, I want to keep staying and make it a fan entertaining fight. So you know, it's whoever gets backed at first. I think it's going to be the one that loses the fight. For me, that's that's just not a not a now it's not in my vocabulary. I just don't move back. That's never my thing. Even if I'm getting pushed in the face nice, never move back. I want to go forward and I want to be able to get a knocked out. When and even how you can be fighting the night? Yeah, for sure. So how do you feel? Have you been like studying him and been doing like film work? You know about him already. Yeah, you know he's he's definitely good fighter, someone to consider serious. He definitely pressed me. I was a cold man. This guy's forced to be regular, fly with divisions. He's fast, throws combinations, he switches it up high low and keeps goes to the takedowns. He's great to find. Has A lot of jokes. I think everything a bottom. He's a great, great fighter, and need someone like me to really post that out, and I'm I think it was the same thing with Jared Brooks. He was a great fighter, but no one really saw it because he was just one style. Kind of allowing him to open up really shows everything. I think I'M gonna get Alex Furs Open up a little morehous with him wind the same thing with me. I think it's a bigger strength for me because that's that's my tail the table. I like to I like to staying, I like the trade and I come back from a versus. That's just my my you know, my way of fighting. If for sure. And what about? I saw the I know you fought a one, one hundred and thirty five, but it says that he's a Bantam weight. You think he's going to have a problem make it weight or no? Yeah, he did miss went...

...last fight given whatever reasons. I think he he blamed it on the airplane, on the flight. But you know, for me it's it's just another fight. If he wants to, you know, come in this way. Hey, I get twenty percent of the purse. If he comes in bigger than so be it. I'm again, I'm ready to fuck go over. I thought it thirty five, I fought it twenty five and I was get ready to fight at forty five. So you know, I try with some of the best in the world and I feel that people are Trailssen's prepared me well enough to handle his speed, as power and you know, his his size. Yeah, I'm just excited to see how he prepares to me. Yeah, for sure. So, were they trying to negotiate with you to fight out one hundred and thirty five, or or no? No, no, a hundred percent one hundred and twenty five. There have been no negotiations or catch fight stuff me. Yeah, I really don't mind. That's part of the sport. But Hey, if you want to go catchwight, I I think it's a more fan entertaining fight because of it. You know, it's I want to fight regardless, and if I do catch wit, if he brings it up first, well then more than likely easier going to miss weight not fight because California is very stripped at that, or, you know, I just I don't get an opponent, I don't make a paycheck. So for me it's also the fact that if he wants one thirty and he'll be healthier at that way, it's gonna be that much better of a fight and I think that the more stand entertaining, for sure. So what's it going to be like? You're fine on you see two hundred and twenty seven sorts of pay per view event. How was it? Experience going to be amazing. It really is. I mean I used to treame a TJ and cups wants and so all these guys. It's a big reunion for me. Que Simona, Brett John's. We're all to see contenders, you know, but Johnson's been the champion before I was at Bantam. Way Page your moves, the fine broad jobs, which is my teammate. What Conos, the teammate of mine, to find on the card, and I don't bunch of guys on just anti event. It's I mean it's at the sleep center. We can say so. It's it is a huge, huge thing. It's first time in La, first time at staple center. It's, you know, mask WORT GARDEN LA in Chicago. For me, on my three pinnacles so far, yeah, far of msgf on New York, but once I get those three, I think that's that's just perfection for me. That I think that we awesome. Plus, Alas, a Latino community majority, I think, and on the excite to see all the Latin fans out there. For sure, you think will Brown gonna go? What's you think? Will Bron is gonna go? We'll see if the brown goes Le Bron goes. But I'm not a huge basketball found, not really used as the broad kind of general, so I'm just kind of like at whatever. Yeah, it's I'm in the sport. Where I'm in the sport. Now we're celebrities. Enjoy watching us. Yeah, so them seeing us as like, Oh, this is what, that's cool. This guy knows me, you know. So it's it's really cool to see all these big names, you know, kind of kind of come to us now, and I think that's really awesome. I know you just briefly mentioned the boat. Where do you training? Who Do you train with and combat don't come on then. I also trade with American top team and cop in the creek right now. That's that's where I'm am and dorms. Train with these guys is like a military life. So, you know, we wake up every morning, train, eat healthy, get in shape, train again, come upstairs, go to sleep and then Lupetea the same cycle again every single day in to our fight comes up and it's everything here is like the Olympic train center. Now we have everything take care of for us. And Yeah, I honestly it's a dream come true for any fighter. You want to be at a place where you're surrounded by a bunch of people they're doing the same thing as you are, so you know there's no bad no bad influences here. Everyone's doing the same thing, everyone wants to achieve the same as you, and that's gold. So you know, I'm you are mad and I'm excited to see my head coach, Mass Abob Sharmer back from combat. Don't La with me, and you know we're going to have a great time. preferred. Did you start your weight cut yet? Yeah, yeah, I'm definitely starting my weight cut. And you know, it's funny because my manager, called Man Goes A. I know it's not the time you want it, but how about August fourth? I was like on, so you're telling me I have more than twenty days to lose a little bit more than twenty pounds compared to nine days and twenty six pounds. But yeah, yeah, I could do that. That that sounds fair. So it's gonna be a brief from last weight. Yeah, what's definitely easier, and I get to I wouldn't say cheat a little bit, but I have a little more and I have to strict as much.

I think this one is low and I are already taken bets on you know, we'll wait. I'm going to come in at check in and we'll wait. I'm going to come in at when I see him at his house at Jersey because I'll be in Jersey next week. It in the way down and we'll go with them. So it's it's all broken down, you know, down. So we're like a lot more with this one. So definitely know you're ready for that one. So you're ready for some fun questions. Yeah, what's up? So what's on your playlist right now? Man, you know, for me my playlist is always it always has somewhere neither old intermedia or the or the new. Kanye West. Kanye West is my favorite artist, so he's always in there, no matter what playlists it is. Honestly, I can listen to and that's pretty much his music for me. You like his new stuff? Yeah, I like his new stuff. I prefer a lot of the old classical just show vibes of of music where it's a little more lyrical. But you know, honestly, it's The Times change and just like anything, you know, this goes awesome, but eventually I had to die as well. So same thing with some of these classic songs from the S. that's a there. You know, there is a little more trapped to there is a little more about, you know, women, drugs and violence against so be it, but it's he's he's just gone with the generation and I believe it's work of all for me. Yeah, I like the Old Kanya. So what are the sports? Are You inswer? Yes, I too. I sound pretty boring, but I'm not too into two sports. Even as a child I always been the person that like playing sports compared to watch the sports. So, you know, yeah, I used to watch football, baseball, that's stuff my family, but I never got into it. For me, I love watching fighting, I love watching MMA, boxing, all these tournaments style stuff, and I love training. So I'm always you know, people ask me, like what I like to do for fun of was like a sleep, if I can sleep eating drain, because it's all I've been doing so I've been four years old. It's just been yea, I'll trying to be as productive as possible and trying to just enjoy myself as as much as I can and my own personal craft through do you? But you play any video games or now? I used to play a lot, man, you know, when I was a teenager, he spoil, a halo and gears, all stuff. But you know, as I got older, as I start being more than a fighter, I had the game systems, I have the Games and I love them all with man, so tired all the time. Like our friends play Games, I get upstairs in my taking that. So for me I bought into the ton those switch and I'm still on, you know, Zell Tho's breath of the while trying to finish that game every every airplane flight I'm on. And then something that's portable. Yeah, I'm waiting for the POKEMON game to come out to switch a mute vocal mouth fans. So just enjoying myself and waiting for Super Smash Broz to come out as well. I think that's going to be an exciting get. Yeah, for sure. What about, you know, if you're in the UFC game, like as a downloadable career? No, yeah, but that's something that, you know, is a goal of my ti. Have two goals in my life. Want is to be to be an acti figure or a bobblehood, and another one is to be in a video game, and I think that be just, you know, a check. You know, one of my one of my really good friends is curtis blades, and him and I started, yeah, and I lay together and he ended up, you know, finally, keep being a DLC and the or an update at least, and you'll see video games. I'm like, man, I want to be DALC every freaking also right that definitely want to just being added update. They really really cool and just a dreaming true. Yeah, I'm sure you will be soon and I know you traveled a lot of places. What's your favorite place to travel so far? My favorite place has been, and this is all for fights, my favorite place has been fallsig Wi, super zough. It's been a very beautiful place. One of the natural ones is the world. The waterfall there is like there's the movie Avatar, where's much waterfalls. Island. That's promis what it is. It's made of made up of two hundred plus waterfalls and it's actually bigger. It's like three or four times bigger than agapolts. So that place was awesome. We got to go Whitewater rafting with the Piranhas, which was scary fun at the same time. I got to go repelling down one of the mounds there,...

...and I mean falls the polls they will see was awesome. I I also want to hold medows there for the pain American Games. I got to be so many different people from South America. I really was awesome, awesome experience and no, definitely want to go to place again. Yeah, it sounds sounds incredible. What about would you ever fight in a pro boxing match? Yeah, you know, it's crazy, because that's that's all my father's I'm going to do. He's like that, like you kicking so much. It's like Dad, I do karate. You should have like what you think and used to playfy all the time when I was a kid in boxing was just my biggest strength, and he's you should be a professional box like Miguel Coto. I'll get the AI follow your laying route to a mexing Puerto Rican. You do the best of both worlds. Yeah, you could be a combined fighter of both, and I just ended up enjoying a male little more of a man. I can step in that box and ring with some of the professionals I would love to do so. I mean I've trained with former world boxing champions, I've trained with current world boxing champions that travel people getting ready for huge cards, and it's been an awesome experience. I can tell you. The sport is definitely very different and the press is definitely, you know, a whole new level, but it's this is why my box is better and I made this why I like to send it trade, because I want to believe it's more find entertaining and to I know I have discover to do it. Sure, I got two more for you. Now you go. Do you have any dream matchups, O man. Yeah, I definitely obviously would like to fight one of the best poo fighters in the wall, which is the beachers Johnson. I just want to test my skill and so I think one of my dream matchups that I really would like to do is against one of the best pompound fighters in the world, is to Beatris Johnson. He's a phenomenal fighters, been the best fly wing history and even one of the best champions in history because it's most titled Defenses. I mean he's been so dominant at the right class. I think just be fun to test my skills to see where I' Matt whether I'm better, I need to improve on some stuff or whatever the case may be. But he's a pinnacle of the sport and that's where I want to be, and I think that's a huge dream matchup. And then also, I think, another be against him, Eliot. You know, to make sense if easy, you know, technically ranked above me. So by the time it comes back and love to fight head. He was the TIGHTA SE champ before I took his vacant belt. Yeah, you know, he ended up moving up to the ultimate fighter and he couldn't have send the belt, so they vacated it and I was able to take it from them and that's that's awesome. But I want to see if he was still around. We had the makedown, this food champ who would have been the other stood world champion, exiting to see for sure. What about? Could you tell me something people might not know about you? Wow, I want to know. I'm short, kind a big head. Let's see, small body, m I don't know what if something people don't know about me. It's a crazy thing is I really do put myself out there and yeah, I I never leave anything from the fans. Even even in my social media post, like I'll put out some realistic depressing self out there and go hey, man, you guys want to do the sport, this is part of the sport. Yeah, here's me bleeding, here's me crying after a fight, even though I want here's this me broken and bruise bad or whatever the case may be. So, yeah, I really leave myself open everybody and let everyone know that his rooms can be and you know, I want to be the hopefully one day the people's champion, show that you know, if I can do it, whatever struggle I'm going through, there's no secrets in my life and social media. I want people to know that you want to be able to do it. Here's here's a small example part of do it, for sure. It's definitely definitely some real stuff right there.
