She is not wrong

With the UFC 223 and the title fight between Max Holloway and Khabib Nurmagomedov in Brooklyn just three days away, I don't read anything except the articles on that fight. I read every article and watch every video on that fight the minute it is published though. There are 1,289 tabs open in my browser at the moment and about as many unopened emails in my inbox.

Helga was trying to help someone who came to our place earlier today to talk to me but felt like she couldn't get through to me properly.

"He is in the zone, he won't really hear anything you say unless it includes key words like "UFC 223", "take down defence", "ground and pound", "by TKO", "submission", "by decision", "weight cut", "Khabib", "Max", "make weight", "belt", etc. Say a couple of those, he will switch on and then you have 15 secs of his attention to say something to him before he realises that you tricked him and zones you out again. This is the only way you'll be able to communicate with him until Sunday unfortunately."

She was joking but she was not wrong.
