ELECTION; I'M TALKING ABOUT CASEY OXENDINE.
(CASEY) WHEN YOU CAST YOUR VOTE THIS TIME, FORGET ABOUT MITT ROMNEY AND RON
PAUL, CAST YOUR VOTE FOR CASEY OXENDINE, MY VICE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE.
(CYRUS) I WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS.
(CASEY) CYRUS FEES.
(CYRUS) I WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS THAT WAS A HORRIBLE BILL CLINTON; THAT WAS
GARBAGE MAN. (CASEY) IT WASN'T THAT BAD. MAN YOU KNOW IT WASN'T.
(CYRUS) YEAH IT WAS.
(CASEY) JEN'S BEEN KIND OF COACHING ME AND HELPING ME WITH IT.
SO I THOUGHT YOU KNOW FOR THIS EPISODE I'D BE ABLE TO KICK THAT ONE OUT.
(CYRUS) OKAY, THAT WAS TRASH.
THIS WEEK WE TOOK FULL PREVIEW OF CAGE BRAWL NUMBER 8 THAT GOES DOWN FRIDAY, THE 27TH AT
THE MEADOWVIEW CONVENTION CENTER AT KINGSPORT TENNESSEE, TALK ABOUT A BIG
EVENT, A GREAT CARD CASEY.
(CASEY) OH MAN, YOU KNOW THE FIRST PRO-EVENT EVER TO HIT KINGSPORT YOU KNOW,
HEADLINE BY LEN COOK, DANIEL CROCKETT, TYLER MINTON AND JOSH BOOHER, THIS IS GOING
TO BE A GREAT SHOW.
OF COURSE A GREAT UNDERCARD BUT THE BIG DEAL IS THE PRO-AM.
(CYRUS) YEAH IT'S GOING TO BE FANTASTIC.
WE'RE ALSO GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE VALLEY FIGHT LEAGUE SHOW THAT WENT DOWN IN WEST VIRGINIA.
WEST VIRGINIAS FIRST MMA EVENT, THERE WAS A BIG GUEST THERE DAN THE BEAST
SEVERN AND WE HAVE AN INTERVIEW WITH HIM AS WELL.
(CASEY) WE CERTAINLY DO THAT GUY IS A CLASS ACT, OUR SECOND HALL OF FAMER FOR AN
EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW MAN.
I'M SO EXCITED TO GET THIS THING ON AIR.
(CYRUS) IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT.
NOW BEFORE WE GET INTO CAGE BRAWL AND DAN SEVERN.
I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE BIG NEWS OF THIS WEEK; AND THAT OF COURSE IS CRIS "CYBORG"
SANTOS THE STRIKEFORCE 145 POUND CHAMPION TESTING POSITIVE FOR A PERFORMANCE
ENHANCING DRUG.
THE DRUG IS WINDSTROL.
IT'S AN OVER THE COUNTER DRUG IN MOST COUNTRIES, BUT IT IS AN ANABOLIC STEROID.
NOW CASEY YOU'VE BEEN IN THE BUSINESS FOR A WHILE, YOU'VE BEEN A TRAINER, YOU'VE
BEEN ALL THIS, WHAT EXACTLY IS WINDSTROL, WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS?
(CASEY) WELL I MEAN IT'S NO SURPRISE THAT ATHLETES ACROSS THE WORLD HAVE BEEN
USING THIS DRUG FOR MANY, MANY YEARS.
IT IS ANABOLIC, YOU KNOW TYPICALLY SPEAKING IT IS ONE OF THOSE AGENTS
THAT HELPS YOU TO MAINTAIN YOURE CARDIOVASCULAR, YOU KNOW IT'S NOT A BODY
BUILDING DRUG.
BUT IT IS A PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUG, NO LESS AND IT IS YOU KNOW
ILLEGAL IN THE UNITED STATES AND IN THE UFC IN MIXED MARTIAL ARTS; AND IT JUST VERY
UNFORTUNATE THAT SHE GOT POPPED WITH IT BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO CHANGE THE
FACE OF WOMEN'S MIXED MARTIAL ARTS.
(CYRUS) THIS IS TRUE.
WHILE DANA WHITE WASTED NO TIME IN STRIPPING CYBORG OF THE TITLE, NOW HE'S
SAYING THAT WHOLE 145 POUND DIVISION WHICH PRETTY MUCH CONSISTED OF CYBORG IS
GOING TO BE OUT.
NOW HOW FAR DOES THIS SET BACK THE SPORT OF MMA FOR WOMEN?
(CASEY) WELL YOU KNOW, ONE MIGHT SAY THAT YOU KNOW IT'S A STEAK IN THE HEART;
BUT FOR ME, I MEAN YOU KNOW YOU'VE GOT RONDA ROUSEY.
YOU'VE GOT MIESHA TATE.
YOU'VE GOT GINA CARANO STILL LULLING AROUND.
YOU KNOW DANA WHITE SAID HE WOULD TAKE HER BACK IN A NEW YORK MINUTE.
SO YOU KNOW IT DEFINITELY, WOMEN'S MMA IS DEFINITELY STILL ON THE RISE.
(CYRUS) SURE (CASEY) AND SO YOU KNOW I HAVE FAITH IN IT.
(CYRUS) OKAY AND NOT TO MENTION YOU KNOW INVICTA FIGHTING
CHAMPIONSHIP IS ON THE HORIZON AND THAT'S ANOTHER ONE THAT CAN MAKE SOME REALLY BIG WAVES,
JANET MARTIN.
(CASEY) OH ABSOLUTELY MAN.
OF COURSE JANET WAS IN TALKS WITH MARLOES COENEN AND HAD HER SIGN BEFORE, YOU KNOW.
SO YOU MIGHT SEE THAT AND HEY YOU MIGHT EVEN SEE THAT FREE AGENT IN CYBORG SANTOS COME
ABOARD WITH INVICTA.
(CYRUS) COULD YOU IMAGINE HOW BIG OF A SPLASH THAT WOULD MAKE, IF SHE PICKED UP CYBORG.
WELL I'LL TELL YOU WHAT THAT'S BIG NEWS AND WE GOT SOME BIG STUFF GOING ON THIS EPISODE.
WE'RE GOING TO GET INTO THE VALLEY FIGHT LEAGUE SHOW, WHERE YOUR GUY HAD A VERY
GOOD SHOWING, NATE JOLLY WE ALSO GOT THE INTERVIEW WITH DAN "THE BEAST" SEVERN.
WE'RE ALSO GOING TO TALK ABOUT CAGE BRAWL NUMBER 8 THAT GOES DOWN FRIDAY JANUARY 27TH IN
KINGSPORT TENNESSEE.
BUT RIGHT NOW LET'S GET TO IT IT'S YOUR MMA INSIDE THE CAGE PUNCH OF THE WEEK.

(VOICE OVER) MMA INSIDE THE CAGE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) WELCOME BACK TO MMA INSIDE THE CAGE--CYRUS FEES
ALONGSIDE CASEY OXENDINE, AND OF COURSE WE'LL BE PREVIEWING CAGE BRAWL 8 THAT'S GOING
DOWN FRIDAY JANUARY 27TH IN KINGSPORT TENNESSEE.
WE GOT A FULL PREVIEW COMING UP NEXT ROUND.
BUT RIGHT NOW WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE FIRST MMA EVENT THAT WENT DOWN IN WEST VIRGINIA.
YOU WERE THERE, VALLEY FIGHT LEAGUE THE BEGINNING, LIONELL ROYER WAS THERE PUTTING THAT ON.
BUTCH HILES WHO HAS BUTCH HILES MMA AND WAS A GREAT EVENT, A LOT OF BIG FIGHTS.
CASEY YOU HAVE ONE OF YOUR GUYS OUT THERE, "LADIES LOVE" NATE JOLLY AND HE GOT
BACK ON THE WINNING TRACK TALK ABOUT THAT FIGHT A LITTLE BIT.
(CASEY) WELL MAN YOU KNOW HE FACED ADAM MAYS WHO IS A VERY, VERY TOUGH GUY.
YOU KNOW THEY HAD BILLED HIM AS THE BEST FIGHTER YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF.
YOU KNOW AND HE DID IT MAN.
HE LASTED THREE ROUNDS WITH NATE.
NATE PICKED UP THE UNANIMOUS DECISION.
WE WERE HAPPY TO GET HIM BACK ON THE WINNING TRACK.
HE LOOKED FANTASTIC AND WE'RE READY FOR BIG AND BETTER YOU KNOW BIG AND BETTER THINGS.
(CYRUS) LET'S TALK ABOUT, ABOUT THE EVENT, VALLEY FIGHT LEAGUE.
YOU KNOW THEY WENT OUT THERE, WENT OUT ON A LIMB AND DID THE FIRST EVENT IN WEST VIRGINIA.
HOW DID IT ALL GO AND HOW DID EVERYTHING COME THROUGH?
(CASEY) WELL THIS IS IT, YOU KNOW I SPOKE WITH, WITH BUTCH HILES AND LIONELL BOTH;
AND THEY WERE, THEY WERE SO ADAMANT ABOUT HOW DIFFICULT IT WAS TO PUT IT
TOGETHER, YOU KNOW CAUSE IT'S THE FIRST ONE.
SO YOU KNOW THERE WERE A LOT OF RULES PUT IN PLACE.
ONE THEY HAD TO HAVE ALL OF THE HUGE SCREENS.
THEY HAD TO HAVE A, YOU KNOW AT LEAST 1500 CAPACITY YOU KNOW TO GET THIS THING OFF
THE GROUND.
THE STATE REQUIRED IT; AND I THINK WHAT THEIR WANTING IS YOU KNOW THEY'RE MAKING
THIS TRANSITION FROM BOXING AND TOUGH MAN INTO MMA.
THEY WANT TO SEE MMA SUCCEED ON A GRAND SCALE.
SO THEY'RE NOT GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO PUT ON A, YOU KNOW HALF WAY LEVEL SHOW.
(CYRUS) SURE (CASEY) SO THESE ARE GOING TO BE VERY, VERY GOOD QUALITY EVENTS AND I
THINK THERE'S GOING TO BE A LOT GOING ON IN THE FUTURE FOR WEST VIRGINIA AS FAR
AS THE CARD IT WAS AN ALL PRO-EVENT, THEIR, THEY, THIS IS ANOTHER
STIPULATION THAT WEST VIRGINIA SAYS THAT THERE WOULD BE NO AMATEUR FIGHT.
IT WOULD BE ALL PRO AND IT WAS EXCITING.
YOU KNOW WE GOT TO SEE THE RETURN OF ADAM SEPULVEDA, GREG MAYNARD, A BELLATOR
VET SHOW BACK UP THERE AND OF COURSE FORMER KING OF THE CAGE CHAMPION BILLY AYASH WAS
ON HAND.
(CYRUS) WOW THAT'S FANTASTIC.
NOW SO VIP'S WERE IN THE HOUSE FOR THAT, YOU HAD DUSTIN HAZELETT WAS THERE, THAT WAS A BIG
MOVE. JORGE GURGEL WAS THERE FROM STRIKEFORCE AND
THEN OF COURSE THERE WAS ONE VIP THAT YOU HAD TO
GET THE INTERVIEW FROM AND THAT IS DAN "THE BEAST" SEVERN.
TALK ABOUT THAT INTERVIEW IT WAS PRETTY FANTASTIC.
(CASEY) YEAH THE BEAST WAS THERE MAN.
HE WAS JUST A GENTLEMAN; YOU KNOW ALL AROUND NICE GUY, IS WHAT HE SAID AND YOU KNOW
IT WAS A LOT OF FUN MAN.
YOU KNOW I WAS SHAKING LIKE A LEAF BEFORE I WENT IN THERE BECAUSE HE'S A GUY I'VE BEEN
WATCHING SINCE THE VERY START.
(CYRUS) COME ON MAN, YOU GOT SHAMROCK NOW, RANDLEMAN; YOU WERE SHAKING FOR DAN SEVERN.
(CASEY) THAT'S TWO HALL OF FAMERS MAN AND I JUST (CYRUS) LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT
IT RIGHT NOW.
WE DON'T HAVE A SECOND FIGHT FOR YOU BUT LET'S GO AHEAD AND GIVE YOU A TASTE OF WHAT
YOU CAN SEE ON THIS DAN SEVERN INTERVIEW WHICH WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE FULL VERSION
AVAILABLE ON OUR YOUTUBE PAGE.
HERE IT IS THIS IS MMA INSIDE THE CAGE.
(CASEY) ALRIGHT CASEY OXENDINE WITH MMA INSIDE THE CAGE RIGHT HERE WITH THE HALL OF FAMER.
WE'RE TALKING TO UFC HALL OF FAMER, ALSO ARIZONA STATE WRESTLING HALL OF FAMER AND A
FORMER WORLD CHAMPION.
HOW ARE YOU DOING TODAY DAN?
(DAN) DOING GOOD HERE CASEY, AND YOURSELF?
(CASEY) ABSOLUTELY.
WELL I'M DOING GREAT.
IT'S GREAT TO BE ABLE TO SIT HERE AND PICK YOUR BRAIN A LITTLE BIT.
YOU KNOW I WANT TO GO BACK TO THE VERY FIRST UFC, WHAT I CALL THE GOLDEN YEARS AND
DURING THAT TIME THERE WERE VERY, VERY COLORFUL GROUP OF GUYS, YOU KNOW?
YOU KNOW ROYCE GRACIE; HE WAS THE JIU JITSU GUY AND THE GEA.
YOU KNOW YOU HAD KEN SHAMROCK WHO WAS THE SHOE FIGHTER.
YOU HAD THE PIT FIGHTER, TANK ABBOTT, THE RUSSIAN OLEG TAKTAROV, AND THEN YOU HAD THE
GRECO ALL AMERICAN IT WAS DAN SEVERN.
SO WHAT I'D LIKE TO DO IS KIND OF FIND OUT WHAT WAS IN YOUR HEAD WAY BACK THEN, YOU KNOW
WHEN YOU WERE ABOUT TO STEP INTO THE CAGE, THE FIRST TIME IN 1994 WITH ANTHONY MACIAS.
YOU KNOW NO GLOVES, HARDLY ANY RULES, WHAT WAS IT LIKE?
(DAN) WELL I GUESS MAYBE TO EDUCATE SOME OF THE VIEWERS RIGHT NOW, FROM WHAT,
WHAT THEY'VE WATCHED ON TELEVISION TODAY, MIXED MARTIAL ARTS IT HAS
APPROXIMATELY37 RULES.
PART OF THOSE 37 RULES ARE WEIGHT CLASSES.
THEY ARE TIME PERIODS AND THEY FACE ONE OPPONENT IN A GIVEN EVENING.
BACK WHEN I FIRST BEGAN IT WAS KNOWN AS A NO HOLDS BARRED ERA.
NO HOLDS BARRED ERA, YOU HAD TWO RULES THAT YOU HAD TO ABIDE BY; AND THOSE RULES
BEING DO NOT BITE YOUR OPPONENT.
DO NOT STICK YOUR FINGERS IN THE EYE SOCKETS, END OF THE RULES.
ANYTHING THAT YOU COULD POSSIBLY THINK OF, YOU WERE GOOD TO GO AND
LET YOUR IMAGINATION GO WILD AS TO WHAT THAT ALL MEANS.
NOW KEN SHAMROCK WAS VERY ADAMANT, THAT HE ACTUALLY FELT THAT PERFORMANCE
ENHANCING DRUGS, STEROIDS SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN PROFESSIONAL SPORTS AS LONG
AS MONITORED BY A PHYSICIAN.
SO WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO IS GET YOUR TAKE ON THE PED'S AND THE SITUATION.
(DAN) A LOT OF TIMES, A LOT OF PEOPLE BRING UP A LOT OF QUESTIONS ABOUT KEN AND MYSELF,
YOU KNOW WE HAD A FEW MATCHES AND IT WAS ACTUALLY THE ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP
THAT PROBABLY BROUGHT THOUGHT THERE WAS THIS ON GOING FEUD.
I MEAN HONESTLY I REALLY DON'T EVEN KNOW KEN.
I'VE NEVER HAD THIS TYPE OF ONE ON ONE TYPE OF A CONVERSATION WITH HIM BEFORE.
WHATEVER TIME WE SPENT WAS INSIDE OF A CAGE AND YOU WEREN'T EXACTLY EXCHANGING
PLEASANTRIES AT THE TIME, HOW IS THE WIFE AND KIDS, OHH!
PRETTY GOOD, NO HOW WAS NAH, NOPE SO.
I THINK THAT'S ONE REASON WHY I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ONE MORE MATCH MAYBE WITH ROYCE,
MARK COLEMAN, AND KEN SHAMROCK.
I HAVE VERY FEW LOSES BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE TIME ERA WHEN MOST OF MY LOSSES OCCURRED IT
WAS PRIOR TO THE DRUG TESTING.
I CREDIT MYSELF A GREAT DEAL THAT ALL OF MY, ALL OF MY SUCCESS THAT I'VE HAD I'VE
ACHIEVED ON MY OWN ABILITY.
I DID NOT HAVE TO TAKE A PILL.
I DID NOT HAVE TO TAKE A SHOT.
I KNOW THAT I'M A TRUE CHAMPION; AND IN SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS.
AS I SAID I WOULDN'T MIND DOING A COUPLE MORE MATCHES.
ONE MORE WITH KEN SHAMROCK ONLY BECAUSE I THINK IT'S MARKETABLE IN THE SENSE
THAT HE WON A MATCH, I WON A MATCH, LET'S DO THE OLD RUBBER MATCH RIGHT NOW.
YOU KNOW AND I HAVE NO PROBLEM BEING TESTED.
THE ONLY SAUCE YOU WILL EVER FIND ON ME, YOU MIGHT FIND A LITTLE SPAGHETTI SAUCE
OVER HERE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT UP IN THE STASH, BUT THAT WILL BE ABOUT THE ONLY
KIND OF SAUCE YOU'LL FIND EVER IN MY SYSTEM AND I WOULD ACTUALLY LIKE TO YOU KNOW JUST TO
DO THAT ONE LAST HURRAH WITH HIM, NO AX TO THE GRIND LIKE I STATED EARLIER.
I STARTED OFF REALLY STRONG IN THIS SPORT.
I'VE HAD A VERY LONG CAREER WITH IT.
I JUST WANT TO FINISH IT OFF WITH A STRONG FASHION AND THEN MORE OR LESS BE DONE
WITH THAT PHASE OF LIFE AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT PHASE.

(VOICE OVER) MMA INSIDE THE CAGE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) WELCOME BACK, IT'S THIRD
ROUND ACTION AND WE'RE PREVIEWING THE BIG CAGE BRAWL 8 CARD ON
FRIDAY JANUARY 27TH FROM THE MEADOWVIEW CONVENTION CENTER IN KINGSPORT.
LET'S TALK ABOUT CAGE BRAWL 8 CASEY.
THIS IS A BIG TIME EVENT FOR THE CITY OF KINGSPORT.
I MEAN BRISTOL HAD THEIR PRO EVENT, JOHNSON CITY'S HAD THEIRS.
YOU PUT THAT ONE ON AND THIS IS A BIG DEAL FOR THE CITY.
(CASEY) YEAH, YOU KNOW EVERYBODYS COMING TOGETHER FOR THIS TO PUSH THE PRO EVENTS.
YOU KNOW IT'S EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY TO GET TOGETHER, MAKE SURE THAT
THE TICKETS GET SOLD BECAUSE IT'S NOT CHEAP.
YOU KNOW CAGE BRAWL'S REALLY GOING OUT ON A LIMB TO PROMOTE THIS EVENT AND I THINK
IT'S GOING TO BE FANTASTIC.
(CYRUS) WELL IT'S JUST THAT THEY'VE BEEN AROUND SO LONG, THAT HAS TO SPEAK TO SOMETHING.
I MEAN EIGHT OF THEIR CAGE BRAWL SHOWS PLUS THE ONE THEY DO IN APPALACHIA,
THAT'S NINE EVENTS THAT'S PRETTY IMPRESSIVE FOR ANY MMA EVENT TO BE AROUND THAT LONG.
(CASEY) YEAH, IT'S NOT EASY MAN AND KNOWING FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE EVERY TIME
YOU PROMOTE AN EVENT YOU GO OUT ON A LIMB, WHEN YOU START ADDING PRO-SANCTIONING,
PRO-INSURANCE YOU KNOW IT ADDS SO MUCH TO IT; AND SO I'M VERY, VERY HAPPY TO SEE
PRO-FIGHTING YOU KNOW HERE IN KINGSPORT.
(CYRUS) SURE, NOW WE KNOW ABOUT ALL THESE BIG FIGHTS, I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU
THE CARD RIGHT HERE.
IT'S UP ON THE SCREEN.
BIG TIME LOADED CARD HERE AS FAR AS THE PROS.
YOU'RE LOOKING AT YOUR GUY MAIN EVENT, THAT'S TYLER MINTON AGAINST AMAECHI
OSELUKWUE, I KNOW HOW TO SAY HIS NAME NOW I'VE PRONOUNCED IT A COUPLE OF TIMES.
(CASEY) AKA THE NOTORIOUS AO.
(CYRUS) THAT'S GOING TO BE A GOOD FIGHT.
YOU GOT DANIEL CROCKETT, SHANE MATCHETTE THAT'S GOING TO BE GOOD.
LEN COOK, BRANDON MCMAHAN THAT'S GOING TO BE ANOTHER ONE AND THEN JOSH
BOOHER AND JAY MENEGHELLO.
TALK ABOUT THESE FIGHTS, WHAT FIGHT IS LIKE STICKING OUT TO YOU?
OF COURSE YOU KNOW TYLER'S IS CAUSE YOU'RE HIS COACH.
BUT WHAT FIGHTS REALLY STICKING OUT TO YOU MAYBE THE SLEEPER FIGHT
AND THAT TAKES IT ALL.
(CASEY) WELL LEN COOK, MCMAHAN IS GOING TO BE BETTER THAN WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK.
YOU KNOW LEN IS DEFINITELY THE FAVORITE IN THAT FIGHT.
BUT MCMAHAN IS A VERY SCRAPPY TOUGH DUDE AND THE WORD IS THAT HE REALLY WANTS THIS FIGHT.
HE'S TAKING IT VERY SERIOUSLY.
HE'S COMING TO FIGHT.
I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE BY BOTH GUYS.
BUT YOU KNOW THE MENEGHELLO, JOSH BOOHER FIGHT IS ANOTHER ONE MAN.
JOSH BOOHER IS AN INCREDIBLE ATHLETE.
ONCE AGAIN HE IS PICKED TO WIN THIS FIGHT, BUT MENEGHELLO HAS PROVEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN
THAT HE HAS STAYING POWER.
YOU KNOW A TOUGH, STRONG GUY AND HE'S BEATEN SOME REALLY GOOD GUYS.
GUYS THAT HE SHOULDNT BEAT.
SO THAT'S ANOTHER ONE THAT I'M VERY EXCITED ABOUT.
(CYRUS) WELL I KNOW WITH THIS FIGHT YOU KNOW YOU GOT KIND OF THE XFC LOOMING HERE IN
JUST LIKE A MONTH OR SO AND YOURE TALKING ABOUT LEN COOK GOING AGAINST CHRIS WRIGHT.
SO HE HAD TO GET READY FOR THAT AND THEN OF COURSE YOU'VE GOT TYLER MINTON
TAKING ON SHANE MATCHETTE, WHICH HE'S GOING TO BE ABLE TO SEE HIM FIRST HAND
AND SEE WHAT HE'S ALL ABOUT, SEE WHAT KIND OF SHAPE HE'S IN.
DO YOU THINK THAT'S GOING TO BE A PROBLEM THESE GUYS GETTING READY FOR THOSE FIGHTS
COMING UP, MAYBE GETTING TOO EXCITED ABOUT THAT MAYBE OVERLOOKING THEIR OPPONENTS?
(CASEY) WELL YOU KNOW WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THAT AND IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU
LOOK DIRECTLY AHEAD OF YOU.
YOU KNOW IF YOU'RE ON A 100 MILE TRIP YOU KNOW YOU'VE STILL GOT LOOK 40 FEET
AHEAD OF YOU BECAUSE THAT'S ALL THE ROAD THAT YOU HAVE IN FRONT, YOU KNOW.
SO YOU CAN'T GO YOU KNOW THINKING ABOUT THE XFC OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT,
YOU'VE GOT TO SEE WHAT'S IN FRONT OF YOU AND TAKE THAT CHALLENGE AS IT COMES AND
I THINK THAT'S WHAT THESE GUYS ARE GOING TO DO.
THEY'RE ALL PROFESSIONALS AND I THINK THAT THEY'RE GOING TO GO INTO CAGE BRAWL AND
THEY'RE GOING TO YOU KNOW PUT THEIR WHOLE HEART AND SOUL INTO IT.
(CYRUS) SURE, I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT.
OF COURSE YOU HAVE SOME GREAT STUFF ON THE UNDERCARD AS WELL, OF COURSE ADAM TOWNSEND
WILL BE THERE, DUSTIN LONG AND THEN D'ANGELO BYNUM'S GOING TO BE MAKING HIS RETURN TO CAGE
BRAWL AS WELL.

(CYRUS) NOW YOU WERE IN HIS SHOES NOT TO LONG AGO, MAKING A PRO-DEBUT AND YOU HAD
TO BE SO HUNGARY WHEN YOU MADE THAT PRO-DEBUT TO MAKE THAT NEXT STEP.
DO YOU FEEL LIKE THAT'S GOING TO BE SOMETHING TO WORRY ABOUT WITH HIM COMING OUT TRYING
TO YOU KNOW GET THAT FIRST PRO WIN?
(LEN) WELL I DON'T THINK SO BECAUSE WHEN I DID MY PRO DEBUT IT DIDN'T FEEL ANY
DIFFERENT.
IT WAS TAKING THE NEXT STEP UP BUT IT STILL FELT LIKE A FIGHT.
I MEAN THIS IS SOMETHING I ENJOY DOING.
I LOVE DOING IT AND I WON'T TO PROGRESS IN THE SPORT BUT BOTTOM LINE IS THIS IS SOMETHING
I WANT TO DO.
SO IT DIDN'T REALLY FEEL VERY MUCH DIFFERENT.
HE WILL BE FACING AMAECHI OSELUKWUE OF CAGE BRAWL NUMBER 8, MEADOWVIEW
CONVENTION CENTER, JANUARY 27TH.
WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW WITH US, THIS IS LIKE SEVEN OR EIGHT TIMES YOU'VE BEEN ON THE
SHOW?

YOU'RE FACING THE INFAMOUS AO, THIS IS THE FIGHT THAT WAS SUPPOSE TO HAPPEN FOR A LONG
TIME NOW; AND FINALLY YOU'RE GOING TO GET YOUR HANDS ON HIM AND TALK ABOUT THIS
FIGHT, TALK ABOUT YOUR OPPONENT.
(TYLER) I'M REALLY EXCITED TO GET TO FIGHT THE GUY.
I WAS SUPPOSE TO FIGHT HIM TWO TIMES BEFORE, THINGS HAPPENED AND WE WEREN'T ABLE TO FIGHT,
SO I'M JUST REALLY EXCITED TO FINALLY GET THIS ONE OUT OF THE WAY, MOVE ON TO THE NEXT

(JOSH) OH, I CAN'T WAIT, YOU KNOW JAY MENEGHELLO HE'S A PRETTY TOUGH GUY.
WE WERE SUPPOSED TO FIGHT BEFORE MY FIRST PROFESSIONAL FIGHT AND HE BACKED
OUT AND I HAD TO FIND A REPLACEMENT.
HE'S A REAL TOUGH GUY, I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE SITUATION WAS BACK THEN BUT I CAN'T WAIT.
(CYRUS) WELL IT'S A BIG STEP UP IN COMPETITION.
I'M TALKING ABOUT A GUY THAT CAN JUST GRIND IT OUT.
IT SEEMS LIKE EVERY WIN HE HAS THE BRAWLER.
HE GRINDS OUT HIS WINS, PRETTY TOUGH WRESTLING, HOW DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR SKILL SET GOES
AGAINST HIS?
(JOSH) I THINK I DEFIANTLY HAVE A LITTLE BIT MORE SKILL, ABOVE ALL I KNOW I
HAVE MORE HEART.
BUT THEN IT JUST GOES TO WHO WANTS IT THE MOST AND WHO'S PUT THE TIME IN TO GET IT.
[MUSIC]
[COMMERCIALS]
[MUSIC]
(VOICE OVER) MMA INSIDE THE CAGE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) WELL IT'S TIME TO CLOSE THIS ONE OUT.
ONCE AGAIN GO TO CAGEBRAWLFIGHTS DOT COM AND
PICK UP YOU'RE TICKETS FOR CAGE BRAWL 8, ON FRIDAY JANUARY 27TH FROM THE
MEADOWVIEW CONVENTION CENTER IN KINGSPORT TENNESSEE.
WELL TO CLOSE OUT AN EPISODE WE GOT TO HAVE YOUR CURTAIN CALL CASEY, TAKE IT AWAY.
(CASEY) ALRIGHT THANK YOU CYRUS.
YOU KNOW WHILE I WAS OUT IN VEGAS A COUPLE OF WEEKS BACK, YOU KNOW I WAS STUDYING
UP AND I WAS TRYING TO SEE WHAT MADE THE LAS VEGAS FIGHT SEEM SO SUCCESSFUL MAN.
IT SEEMS LIKE A HOT BED FOR MMA FIGHTING AND BESIDES THE UFC BEING ON LOCATION,
WHAT I NOTICED WAS IS THAT ALL OF THE TEAMS ARE TRAINING TOGETHER, OKAY UNIFIED.
SO YOU HAD TEAM VON, YOU HAD TAPOUT.
YOU HAD XTREME COUTURE, AND EVEN THE ROBERT DRYSDALE GUYS ALL CROSS TRAINING WITH
EACH OTHER.
OF COURSE WHEN THEY WENT TO FIGHT THEY WRAPPED THEIR HOME TEAM BUT WHAT THEY GOT
WAS A LOT OF EXPERIENCE AND A LOT OF TRAINING WITH GUYS THAT THEY NORMALLY DON'T GET TO
WORK OUT WITH, WITH THAT BEING SAID I THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA FOR ALL THE SMALLER GYMS
ACROSS AMERICA TO COME TOGETHER IN YOUR LOCAL REGIONS.
GET THAT TRAINING TOGETHER AND THEN TAKE IT TO A NATIONAL LEVEL.
I THINK IF YOU DO THAT WE'RE GOING TO SEE A LOT OF GROWTH AND YOU CAN EVEN SEE WORLD
CHAMPIONS FROM THE SMALLEST REGIONS IN AMERICA MAKE IT BIG TIME.
(CYRUS) A VERY GOOD POINT CASEY AND IT'S TIME TO CLOSE THIS ONE OUT AND WE
WANT TO TELL YOU TO GO TO FACEBOOK DOT COM, FIND US, AND LIKE US.
FOLLOW US AT MMAITC, SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE PAGE, AND SEND ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS TO
