no wonder why i look like a tan anthony smith :c stupid sun
I absolutely love this guy! Nothing but respect!!!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS GUY. We need more people in the world like Anthony Smith . Good luck , remember , Jon Jones doesn't have the power to knock you out , I see a upset , time will show
Jon Jones weakness is his inability to knock people out . This is why I believe Anthony Smith has a chance. A lot of this my be from the heart but Anthony Smith is an awesome person which is all that really matters in the long run
I have a crush on Karen. She’s PHAT. PRETTY,HOT AND TEMPTING
This guy is a class act
Karyn looking proper but with straight hair she'd be a dime piece.
Great interview! I didn't know about Anthony's heritage & thought that was a great story about himself he told!
Damn shes fine
When is Kayrn going to do Playboy?
Smith looks 30% African
Great job I enjoyed the interview.
An authentic woman with a warm feminine vibe that isn't trying to cram women empowerment and politics in every single conversation and lets her body of work speak for itself – refreshing.
He doesnt have a grenade tattooed on his power hand for no reason
Smith catches jones in rd 3. Im calling it
Between her and helen…i gotta go with karyn she so bubbly gorgeous and smart and she all real lol. Natural beats fake all day. Keep it up love great content
This was a cool interview.
I think Anthony seems like a cool Dude but Jacoby is nothing like Jones. Pico Jones is gonna chop Smiths legs down till he breaks!!!Then he'll go to work breaking him down!!!!
Anthony will be the new Champ!
I'm a jon jones fan. but i bleed red. Go Anthony! Go Big Red!
Smith always looked like a black guy with white skin to me. Something about his facial features.
She sounds like she smokes 10 packs of cigarettes a day
This guy will kO’d Jon Jones mark my word Karen
How on earth is Smith gonna make weight those monster balls…..Smith does not fear Jones so he's already at an advantage over most of Jons opponents
Ughhh Karen don’t retire anytime soon, your so beautiful and professional ❤️
WEll if youre half white then its perfectly natural that you are not dark
Im suprised to hear hes mixed race
Jon has a background in wrestling, its actually the first thing he learned. So in order to give Jon Jones a tough fight it has to be somebody with real wrestling skills. Somebody who is familiar with grinding out a workout. Anthony Smith definitely has those skills. DC can beat Jon Jones in a fight that's fair and square. Imagine if DC were to juice up, Jones wouldn't have a chance against a JUICED UP DC. Jones would be tossed around like a rag doll in that Octogon then snapped like a twig. But DC ain't that type of guy to EVER Juice Up. Thank goodness for that. DC is what it means to have a True Heart and what it means to be a Real Champ.
DC is that you bro?
He's gonna need those specs in the ring to him from Jon's eye pokes.
Anthony Smith vs Jon Jones
A Lion Heart vs A Cheating Heart
I really hope Smith has enough HEART to beat the JUICE out of Jon Jones.
To finally knock the JUICE out the BONES of Jon jones once and for all.
Anthony is my favorite fighter #1
21:40 What does this have to do with fighting? Why cant we have one show without race baiting? There are lots of mixed races in America, deal with it better then you are. Grow up and mature
Who was race baiting? We were just talking about our backgrounds for crying out loud. Why do you seem triggered?
Smith…. greatest upset in ufc history… if he wins
Anthony is mixed?! I'm mind blown only in Nebraska can you mistake a mixed dude for a white hillbilly
Karyn is an example of hard work..
Most people don't care whether you're black or white.. Is this the fight game or whining about your race game? Here's an idea,if you're multi-colored and have a problem with it or have had problems because of it,maybe just talk to the people who made you?
Anthony is so calm, humble and likeable. I really wish him the best.
Best mma milf. Karyn is dope.
the gap in skill is gonna be bigger than punk vs gall
I have found that ppl that are mixed race usually fit in very well with us Latinos. With that being said, go Anthony I hope he wins.
Wow didn't know he black lol
It’s like she trying to make him loose his confidence
Difference between Gus & Smith is Gus was focused on what Jon was doing, Smith is focused on what hes doing.
Before this I could sort of see he’s mixed race with Black…I think it was the facial features like the nose. Wasn’t sure though. All confirmed with the interview he indeed is black.
Talk about bein mixed more I was unsure about it all but I thought u were mixed like me
Wow never would of guessed he was black . He looks and talks like the whitest guy
He’s a straight blue-collar champ he’s a peoples gentleman but yet a bad ass that I take your head off woot woot Anthony Smith
KB needs to stop being so attractive so we can actually pay attention to the interviews! Good work as always bae. <3
He knows he’s going to lose…
Karyn you're gorgeous and conduct fantastic interviews. You're one of the best in the mma media game! Thanks for the great content.
Karyn you are so beautiful!
Pulling for you Tony. And don't ever change like John Jones.
Everytime I see her I find myself oddly attached to her! Much love KB
They ruined the entire conversation when they started talking about race
Yes. How dare we get to know fighters more deeply on a personal level! It should be all face punching all the time! (Sounds kinds silly, don't you think?) BTW the conversation was very upbeat and positive. It's not like we're starting a race war here dude…
Anthony "Deontay Wilder" Smith
Werdum submitted fedor, Anderson silva got ko'd by wiedman. Matt serra tko'd st pierre. So now will this be jones's time to lose to lionheart?? I hope so !!
I seen old video of Smith with hair and i was thinking he definitely look black.
Hey Karyn, I went to highschool with you! 🙂
Anthony "my ninja" Smith
lol jon Jones is going to run right threw this guy.
Great interview 🙂 I wish it was longer!
She's a delight
I feel bad for him… Don't have a Chance
The numbers say Jon should win, however i am game for the underdog story and I'd like to see the upset
This man's about to shock the world
Karyn is so good at her job, you almost forget how beautiful she is. Well spoken, concise, and intelligent.
Karyn so cute & Anthony is so heart
That damn Wade… 😉
Karen is a very beautiful woman.
Here b4 Smith KO’s jones
1:59 "Jon has tendencies/patterns things we can exploit"
mantra "to help stick to your own plan"
Smith: " do I look like a guy with a plan"
Smith: "I am just focus on the moment I dont think far ahead"
Awesome interview, as always.
Smith wouldnt beat SG,or Evan's In their Primes.Not a chance,so aJon Jone's in His???I'm thinking first round hands,Smith's Toast. #facts
Even though I highly doubt it will happen I hope Anthony puts Jon jones to sleep.
I'm praying lion heart wins.
this podcast is so good
Such a cool dude hope he does well
This boy is READY to lose he has 0 confidence as soon as he said uhh 8 days 8 days…this guy is scared
Great Interview, so comfortable and not forced. I really wish that this channel blows up. Good luck Karyn.
I don't think Smith is going to beat Jones, but I would love to be proven wrong.
Something in my gut keeps telling me to put a few hundred on Anthony. I just have a feeling. Ima do it. #teamlionheart
You're royalty Karyn ♥
Lionheart is the man
Great interview! Love hearing new info.
Karyn looking like a 5 star meal.
I was thinking this too. She is very beautiful.
Btw this hairstyle is legit kb! More of it!
I'm sure wade approves.. ohh and can you tell us who will be commentating the even and will you and the old fox crew be covering it?
Beautiful kb with another great interview! Hope Smith wins or gives a hell of a fight! 7 more days till the most stacked card so far this year!
Smith wins guillotine
Karyn Bryant is the best . So beautiful too lol
This guy was making footlongs now he about to put his foot long in Jonny's bum ! hope Anthony Smith wins !
Thank You Karyn I Was Wondering Myself…Good Luck Anthony! I'm Ready for the Fight
We wish Anthony the best. I know he will have a great fight with Jon. He is right, I didnt see the fight happening this quickly. I was being realistic as Anthony. I was thinking International Fight week at the earliest also. Amazing that this will be Anthonys 5th fight in 13 months. Surprised there isnt somebody on standby given Jon's reputation outside the cage incase something happens. I think Jon was prepared for DC to be working the desk at FS1 so he could tell him to kiss his ass when he beat Gus. It threw him for a loop seeing Anthony there.
Jones by first degree murder
Tony Ferguson, the type of guy to not like Anthony Smith's interviews.
Great interview. Good luck Anthony Smith. You're a great person.
I'm so jelous of Wade lol
Jones is going to use every dirty trick in the book. I hope Anthony is aware of that.
Im sure he is
Definitely he should look out for the eye pokes
It's not gonna happen, Jones will shoot early takedown and wear him out.
I wish Karyns videos got more views, shes a sweetheart
She's the best. First Lady of mma imo.
Gut feeling of an upcoming upset on the way
Keep dreaming lol no way he touches Jones with his short ass reach and no wrestling
Would be crazy if he K.O's Jones .Because nobody is expecting it.
Ive got a gut feeling of an upset. Never before have i had this any person against jones but with smith i do
andrew russell No you don’t, Smith is not gonna win, trust me.
Snakediet.. I hope Smith wins. After Nunez crushed cyborg, and cejudo smashed tj, it would be awesome for another upset after all the comments saying how none of the winners stood any chance.
It’s Tony from Nebraska.
This is a likable dude
But his ass will be whooped so bad by jones…
I hope he makes big bucks with this fight
How can ethnic mixing be problematic, I thought it was only wonderful 🙂
It's not problematic though it has absolutely NO genetic benefits.
PS I'm mixed to, by two different European populations. Have the color of my tall and slender mother's people whom I live with, and the build of my fathers people, who are much more robust, square, short etc. I felt I looked strange even though I have the same super light color. And that's only the superficial. Culturally and identity wise, I'm different too.
Thiago Santos better
I'm surprised I didn't recognize Anthony as a fellow Quadroon, I'm usually good at spotting the White passing ones. I came out of the oven a little toasty with Karyn's completion, but the rest of my sibs all look like Anthony.
This recent Thiago KO makes me wonder… just how good is K-Holland?
Spike DeVito so true lmao
He should have fought Thiago Santos again that guy is a Savage but honestly Anthony is a very well spoken guy I have a whole lot of respect for him but I do not see him beating John and no way form or fashion
Eric Willis John Dodson?
After seeing this interview I gotta say I got Anthony winning. 2nd round TKO via sloppy blow job.. you heard it here first!
Big supporter of Anthony’s I feel you will beat him bro fight super smart have a few surprises for him good luck,and KB always in top form x
Smith by First Round Ko. Jones has only fought out of their prime legends. He can't handle this young tiger.
+hussein hussein you shouldve wiped your ass with that money instead
Jon obliterated gus easily. He will destroy Smith quick & easy peasy!
What dude? Shogun, Rashad, Vitor, and Machida were all previous champions (Shogun was champion), no one in the history of MMA has fought the same level of competition as Jones, outside of GSP.
Still I think Anthony has potential for a huge upset.
He is a nice guy.
How do you not like Anthony Smith? Well spoken, humble, and hungry! Im looking forward to this fight!
When you first see him first in the octagon, he looks like a total scumbag. He is the Total opposite. Really good guy.
DC is no longer in the LHW division and will probably be removed from the LHW rankings, putting Gustafsson at number 1 and Smith at number 2.
Thomas Jenkins to whom are you talking or answering?
I'm just adding on to what you said, I'm saying because DC ain't a LHW anymore should be removed from the LHW rankings and Smith deserves to be Number 2 on paper before fighting Jon Jones. I am looking forward to this fight.
Thomas Jenkins Okay. Have a good night Thomas.
