But you know to get in here with one of these one of the fight nights. -- build the awareness just like we do every time we bring a live event and and BM. Our nation's capital for the first time it's exciting but they told -- -- thing because that question was asked yesterday -- -- reads -- which probably directorate which do you judge. Whether or not you will bring up your -- -- and cut a success needs to happen here nor for your organization -- out mobile as well as we'd. Designate places that we're gonna go we have fight nights we have Paper -- we kinda have a gauge of what the market is and and and where we wanna go the the thing about a fight here in DC what we did is yes it's a fight night and it's on free TV. We'll bring a championship fight here though so. I mean that this is like bringing a Paper view do you see the good side is it's on free TV this is the reason is that showing off ms. Marshall also fighting in general I'm talking you. As the US you come here and I guess impacted -- it -- -- so we're doing it right now. Every time it doesn't matter where we go in the world whether it's a state here in the United States or some other country. Basically what happens is after we come and we do that live event it really does start to spread the buzz in the word and people have heard you upstate but when we come into a new market like DC. It's the actual live event that really starts to spread the word to create the awareness that we bought titles by what you choose this one for the next one on -- it's been four years into the title -- -- free TV what -- -- the lead which -- -- -- and -- went on -- cruise and Richard Johnson -- actually gonna have to. We're -- people right away it's on this show and then the big one out box going to be the heavyweights. And and it's part of our strategy and what I've been saying for years Tom boxing used to put big fights on free TV. And then once the pay model stop up in the stopped doing it. Because they can make a lot more money on Paper view with the title fights where the exact opposite yes we're gonna take it on the chin on some of these big title fights but. What we've been talking about through this whole interview here is to grow the market and introduce more people to the UFC. Are you invited mr.
