WORLD OF MIXED MARTIAL ARTS STRAIGHT TO YOU.
I'M YOUR HOST CYRUS FEES, NEXT TO ME THE MAN THAT PUT THE
HOT IN HOTLANTA LAST WEEKEND MISTER CASEY OXENDINE.
(CASEY) WELL BROTHER YOU'VE GOT TO BE TALKING ABOUT
THE WAY WE'RE BLAZING THROUGH THE ATL, LAST WEEKEND AT
THE UFC 145.
(CYRUS) GREAT, IT WAS FUN.
(CASEY) BUT BROTHER I GOT TO SAY YOU DROPPED THE BALL
ON THAT HOTEL SITUATION.
YOU HAD THIS AND THAT, THAT FLEA INFESTED ROACH MOTEL
THEY CALLED THE RITZ CARLTON.
EVERYBODY KNOWS, EVERYBODY KNOWS, (CYRUS) WHOA!
(CASEY) THAT THE FIGHTERS WENT TO THE HILTON.
(CYRUS) YEAH, I MAY HAVE DROPPED THE BALL A LITTLE
BIT ON THAT BUT ARE YOU THAT MUCH OF A PRIMA DONNA THAT
YOU WOULD SAY THAT IT WAS A FLEA INFESTED HOTEL AT
THE RITZ CARLTON.
(CASEY) THAT GIRL'S GOOD.
(CYRUS) WHO, WHO ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?
(CASEY) THE MATERIAL GIRL MADONNA.
THAT GIRL CAN SING.
(CYRUS) OH, CASEY, (CASEY) YEAH!
(CYRUS) UFC 145, THAT WAS THE BIG EVENT LAST WEEKEND
THAT WAS THE FIGHT EVERYBODY WAS LOOKING FOR AND IT
COULD BE THE BIGGEST FIGHT OF THE YEAR OF 2012 AND IT
WAS FANTASTIC.
WE'VE GOT INTERVIEWS GALORE, WHICH ARE GOING TO COME
UP HERE IN THE THIRD ROUND.
WE'RE GOING TO GO OVER THE RESULTS.
WE'RE GOING TO TALK ALL ABOUT THE BIG EVENT, JON
JONES VERSUS RASHAD EVANS AND EVERYTHING THAT CAME WITH IT.
BUT RIGHT NOW LET'S GET INTO IT.
IT'S OUR MMA NEWS FLURRY AND OF COURSE THE FIRST NEWS
ITEM THAT WE'RE GOING TO HIT IS BELLATOR NUMBER 66.
CAUSE IT WAS NOT THE ONLY EVENT UFC 145 BELLATOR
CAME WITH A VERY BIG SHOW UP IN CLEVELAND OHIO.
YOU HAD MAIQUEL FALCAO, AND SPANG, MEETING, IN
THE MIDDLEWEIGHT FINAL THAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.
THEY BOTH ADVANCE.
YOU HAVE WEEDMAN AND HAWN, BOTH ADVANCING TO
THE LIGHTWEIGHT FINAL AND OF COURSE THE SUPER FIGHT
THAT EVERYBODY WAS TALKING ABOUT WAS EDDIE ALVAREZ
GOING AGAINST SHINYA AOKI AND THAT IS THEIR SECOND FIGHT.
ALVAREZ GOES OVER AOKI AND HE KIND OF RUNS RIGHT
THROUGH HIM, TO BE COMPLETELY HONEST.
HE DOMINATES THAT FIGHT.
LET'S TALK ABOUT THAT.
(CASEY) WELL YOU KNOW ALVAREZ GOT TO BE MAD, MAD HAPPY
ABOUT THAT ONE.
OF COURSE HE WAS COMING OFF OF A LOSS.
HE'S LOOKING TO REGAIN HIS TITLE.
BUT YOU KNOW THIS IS A GUY, AOKI IS A GUY THAT HE LOST
TO BEFORE.
HE WAS LOOKING FOR A BIG WIN AND HE DOES IT IN
SUPREME FASHION MAN, STOMPING OUT AOKI IN ROUND ONE, A
BIG, BIG WIN FOR EDDIE ALVAREZ.
(CYRUS) OH, MAN HE LOOKED TOUGH.
LET'S GO TO OUR CORRESPONDENT NATE JOLLY AS HE CAUGHT
UP WITH EDDIE ALVAREZ FOLLOWING THE FIGHT.
(NATE) NOW YOU KIND OF ALLUDED TO THE FACT THAT YOUR
CONTRACT DOESN'T HAVE A LOT MORE FIGHTS LEFT IN IT.
ARE YOU LOOKING AT STAYING WITH BELLATOR OR ARE
YOU EXPLORING OTHER OPTIONS?
(ALVAREZ) WELL I MEAN, LIKE I SAID ME, BOOHER AND
REBNEY HAVE A, WE HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP.
I'VE BEEN WITH BELLATOR FOR FOUR YEARS NOW AND
THEY'VE DONE EVERYTHING THEY SAID THEY WERE GOING TO DO
FOR ME AND MORE.
TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, THE BIGGEST THING I DON'T
ENJOY ABOUT BELLATOR IS THAT I BECAME CHAMPION AND THEY
ONLY LET ME FIGHT TWICE A YEAR.
SO, YOU KNOW MY BIGGEST THING WAS WANTING TO FIGHT FOUR
AND FIVE TIMES A YEAR.
I'M 28 YEARS OLD AND I WANT TO GET IN AS MANY FIGHTS
AS POSSIBLE.
YOU KNOW I'M JUST GOING TO LET THINGS EVOLVE AND LET THINGS GO.
(CYRUS) BIG NEWS FOLLOWING THAT FIGHT WAS
ACTUALLY LORENZO FERTITTA FROM THE UFC TWEETING
EDDIE ALVAREZ, CRAZY SAYING HEY I'M LORENZO FERTITTA
NICE TO MEET YOU.
WHAT'S THAT MEAN?
(CASEY) WELL IT COULD BE THAT YOU KNOW HE STICKS
WITH BELLATOR BECAUSE HE SAYS HE'S HAPPY BUT MAN AN
OFFER YOU CAN'T REFUSE FROM LORENZO FERTITTA.
(CYRUS) THEY COULD BE LOSING ALVAREZ AND LOMBARD,
CRAZY STUFF.
I'LL TELL YOU WHAT UFC 145 WAS KICKING IN ATLANTA.
THERE WAS SO MUCH HYPE GOING IN THERE AND I KNOW ON
FRIDAY WHEN WE WENT IN FOR THE WEIGH INS, WE KNEW THAT
WAS GOING TO BE EXCITING.
BUT WE ALSO CHECKED OUT THIS Q&A WITH CHAEL SONNEN,
WHICH YOU KNOW THAT IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE ENTERTAINING
AND CHAEL HAD SOME CRAZY LINES TO EVEN BROUGHT ABOUT A
LITTLE BIT OF A SONG, A RAP FOR ANDERSON SILVA, AND
WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU THAT AND A QUICK INTERVIEW I
HAD WITH CHAEL FOLLOWING THE Q&A.
(CHAEL) I WROTE A SONG FOR ANDERSON SILVA AS A MATTER
OF FACT YOU WANT TO HEAR THAT?
(CROWD APPLAUSE) (CHAEL) LOOK YOU'RE A WUSS, THERE'S NO
WAY TO PUT IT LIGHTLY.
YOU'VE DUCKED ME FOR YEARS, AND NOW DANA'S MAKING
YOU FIGHT ME, WHEN I BEAT YOU IN BRAZIL I'M GOING TO LEAVE
A WHOLE LOT RICHER.
BUT I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE TILL THAT OLD LADY MAKES ME
A STEAK FOR DINNER.
(CROWD NOISE) (CHAEL) ANDERSON, ANDERSON,
PRINCESS SILVA FIGHT YOU WITH MY EYES CLOSED AND I'D
STILL KILL YOU, ANDERSON, ANDERSON, PRINCESS SILVA
DOES THIS BICEP LOOK FAMILIAR?
(CROWD LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE) (CYRUS) WHAT DO YOU MAKE
OF THE WHOLE SITUATION HERE WITH OVEREEM DO YOU THINKS
HE SHOULD FIGHT, IF HE COMES UP WITH A DECENT EXPLANATION?
DO YOU THINK HE SHOULD GET THAT FIGHT, OR WHERE ARE
YOU AT ON THAT?
(CHAEL) LET'S STOP, BECAUSE THE MEDIA HAS REALLY DONE
A BAD JOB ON THIS.
(CYRUS) OKAY, (CHAEL) OVEREEM DID NOT TEST POSITIVE
FOR ANYTHING.
HE'S TAKEN FOUR TESTS, TWO WHICH WERE POP TESTS.
HE HAD NO IDEA THEY WERE COMING, THEY ARE
SUBSTANCE TESTS.
HE DID NOT TEST POSITIVE FOR A SUBSTANCE EVER.
NOW IT'S BEEN GREATLY MISREPORTED THAT HE HAD A
HIGH TESTOSTERONE LEVEL.
HE IS NOT EVEN ACCUSED OF THAT, LET ALONE GUILTY.
(CYRUS) WELL I REALLY ENJOYED THAT INTERVIEW WITH
CHAEL SONNEN.
MAN, THAT GUY HAS THE PIPE ON JUST LIKE HIS BUDDY, CM
PUCK MAN, THAT'S HIS PIPE BOMB RIGHT THERE.
YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT HE'S GOING TO SAY.
TALKING ABOUT THE WEIGH INS CASEY AND YOU KNOW WE
KNEW THAT WHEN RASHAD EVANS AND JON JONES WENT NOSE
TO NOSE THAT WAS GOING TO BE EXCITING.
BUT THE RECEPTION JUST WALKING UNDER THE STAGE WAS
SOMETHING TO BEHOLD.
TALK ABOUT THAT.
(CASEY) IT WAS ELECTRICITY.
IT SEEMED LIKE A PRO RASHAD, AUDIENCE THERE BUT MAN
WHEN JON JONES STEPPED OUT THERE I MEAN IT WAS A LOT
OF BOOS, AND IT (CYRUS) THERE WAS A LOT OF BOOS (CASEY)
WAS RESOUNDING IN THERE AND THEN YOU KNOW HE PLAYED IT
UP LIKE A TRUE VILLAIN AND I GOT A LITTLE BIT, YOU KNOW
I WAS CAPTIVATED A LITTLE BIT BY JON JONES.
I WAS GOING IN THERE THINKING RASHAD WAS GOING TO BE THE
MAN THAT I WAS PULLING FOR RASHAD.
JON JONES STARTED TO SWAY ME.
(CYRUS) THE WEIGH INS WERE WILD AND NOW OF COURSE
THE FIGHT WAS EVEN BETTER.
WE'RE GOING TO GET INTO THOSE FULL RESULTS, GET INTO
SOME POST FIGHT INTERVIEWS, THE PRESS CONFERENCE AND
WE'RE GOING TO HAVE ALL THOSE GREAT INTERVIEWS
INCLUDING BENSON HENDERSON, DAN HENDERSON, BRUCE
BUFFER, ALL KINDS OF GREAT STUFF COMING UP IN THE
THIRD ROUND.
BUT RIGHT NOW YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS, LET'S CHECK
OUT SOME KNOCK OUTS IN YOUR MMA INSIDE THE CAGE HIT PARADE.
(COM1) YOU KNOW REALLY THAT'S THE PROMOTER'S CALL
AND, (COM2) OHH!
(CROWD NOISE) (COM1) BIG SHOT, BIG SHOT, ATROVICH IS GOING
TO LOOK AT THIS (COM1) NEEDLESS TO SAY HE'S
LOOKING FOR OHHH!
(CROWD NOISE) (COM1) SUCH A GREAT, GREAT ATMOSPHERE.
(COM2) IT IS, IT REALLY IS, AND BOTH THESE GUYS HAVE
A BIG, OHHH!
MAN!!!
(COM1) FIGHT, WOW! WOW! HELLO TIM LOWLY, SHEPHERD FINISH.
(CASEY) ALL RIGHT I'M RIGHT HERE WITH DAVE, HERE AT
[COMMERCIALS]
[MUSIC]
(VOICEOVER) MMA INSIDE THE CAGE BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CASEY) ALL RIGHT I'M RIGHT HERE WITH DAVE, HERE AT
THIS BIG FAN EXPO.
BROTHER WHO YOU GOT TONIGHT RASHAD EVANS OR JON JONES?
(DAVE) RASHAD EVANS.
(CYRUS) WHO'S GOING TO WIN THIS FIGHT?
(FEMALE) RASHAD EVANS, (CYRUS) JUST LIKE THAT?
WE'RE GETTING A LOT OF JON JONES AROUND HERE SO?
(FEMALE) I DON'T KNOW, I'VE PLAYED HIM ON THE UFC
LIKE XBOX THING BEFORE AND I THINK I WON WITH HIM.
(CYRUS) WELCOME BACK TO MMA INSIDE THE CAGE ROUND
TWO ACTION AS WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE RESULTS FROM UFC
145 AND LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THAT RIGHT NOW.
SOME OF THE THINGS THAT STUCK OUT TO US, YOU HAD MAC
DANZIG DEFEATING EFRAIN ESCUDERO UNANIMOUS
DECISION, LOOKED REAL GOOD IN THAT FIGHT.
YOU HAD ANTHONY NJOKUANI DEFEATING JOHN
MAKDESSI ANOTHER UNANIMOUS DECISION.
BUT I'LL TELL YOU WHAT NJOKUANI LOOKED REAL GOOD.
(CASEY) NJOKUANI HE DID EXACTLY WHAT HE NEEDED TO
DO WITH MAKDESSI.
HE HAD THAT REACH.
HE USED THOSE KICKS AND REALLY CONTROLLED THE BATTLE,
BECAUSE MAKDESSI ON THE INSIDE HE CAN BE VERY, VERY
DANGEROUS WITH ALL THIS SPINNING BACK PUNCH,
SPINNING BACK KICK STUFF THAT HE PULLS OFF.
(CYRUS) THAT'S RIGHT; LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE POST FIGHT.
(CYRUS) NOW, HOW COOL WAS IT TO GET BACK ON THE
WINNING TRACK, GET THE W, AND THEN MOVE FORWARD, KIND
OF CLIMB THE LADDER A LITTLE BIT?
(NJOKUANI) VERY COOL, YOU KNOW I WANT TO CONTINUE THIS STREAK.
I WANT TO CONTINUE TRAINING HARD, CAUSE I WANT MORE
WINS TO COME AND I WANT TO CONTINUE GIVING THE FANS
A REALLY GOOD FIGHT.
(CYRUS) YOU KNOW THE NEXT FIGHT THAT CAME UP WAS
MATT BROWN TAKING ON STEPHEN WONDER BOY THOMPSON AND
WE KNOW, YOU KNOW WONDER BOY THOMPSON REAL WELL.
CASEY YOU USED TO TRAIN WITH THIS GUY FOR A LONG TIME
OVER THERE IN SOUTH CAROLINA, AND MATT BROWN TOOK HIM TO
THE GROUND AND WE SEE THAT STEPHEN THOMPSON REALLY
NEEDS TO WORK ON THAT GROUND GAME BECAUSE HE JUST
COULDN'T DO MUCH WITH MATT BROWN TOWARDS THE END OF
THE FIGHT.
(CASEY) I DON'T NECESSARILY THINK IT WAS THE GROUND
GAME AS MUCH AS I WOULD LIKE TO SEE STEPHEN ACTUALLY
WORK ON HIS WRESTLING BECAUSE YOU KNOW ON THE
OUTSIDE STEPHEN THOMPSON IS UTTERLY DANGEROUS.
(CYRUS) AND HE LOOKED GOOD IN THE FIGHT.
(CASEY) YEAH, ABSOLUTELY (CYRUS) HE PUT IN SOME
GOOD HITS.
(CASEY) HERE'S THE THING WITH MATT BROWN, HE IS A GRINDER.
YOU KNOW HE CAN TAKE A HARD SHOT AND HE CAN KEEP
PUSHING THROUGH.
BUT IT JUST SEEMED LIKE ONCE STEPHEN WAS WRESTLING, HE
LOST A STEP ONCE THEY SEPARATED.
YOU KNOW WHEN YOU WRESTLE LIKE THAT SOMETIMES IT CAN
KILL YOUR WIN.
YOU KNOW RIGHT THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF A FIGHT, SO YOU
KNOW I'D LIKE TO SEE STEPHEN GO OUT THERE AND DO KIND
OF LIKE, HE TRAINS A LOT WITH GSP, ACTUALLY GET OUT THERE
ON THE MATS WITH GSP AND DO SOME ACTUAL SCHOLASTIC
STYLE WRESTLING, I THINK IT'LL IMPROVE HIS GAME A WHOLE LOT.
(CYRUS) WELL LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE POST GAMES
FROM THE MATT BROWN, THE BIG WINNER.
(MATT) SO I WASN'T YOU KNOW QUITE THE, A LOT OF MY SHOTS
I WAS TRYING TO FAINT, YOU KNOW JUST TO GET IN
CLOSER, AND I STARTED REALIZING LIKE I DON'T HAVE
TO FAINT, I CAN JUST PUNCH HIM.
(CYRUS) SOME OTHER FIGHTS ON THE CARD, TRAVIS
BROWNE DEFEATING CHAD GRIGGS, A BIG HEAVYWEIGHT FIGHT.
IT LOOKED REAL GOOD WITH THAT SUBMISSION.
HE ACTUALLY GOT SUBMISSION OF THE NIGHT WITH THAT ONE.
BOCEK DEFEATING ALESSIO.
IT WAS ANOTHER GOOD ONE.
ALESSIO TAKING THAT ONE ON VERY SHORT NOTICE.
ANOTHER FIGHT THAT I LOVED WAS EDDIE YAGIN TAKING ON
MARK HOMINICK.
NOW THIS WAS A FIGHT, THIS WAS A BLOOD FEST.
THIS ONE GOT FIGHT OF THE NIGHT FOR GOOD REASON.
EDDIE YAGIN WAS, HE WAS A PLUS 700 UNDERDOG.
I MEAN THIS IS BIG TIME, AND IT WAS JUST A REALLY
GOOD FIGHT CASEY.
WHAT YOU THINK?
(CASEY) I THOUGHT THAT HOMINICK YOU KNOW IT WENT
THE WAY I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO GO.
HOMINICK WAS COMPLETELY CONTROLLING ALL REALMS OF
THAT FIGHT, EXCEPT FOR A FEW MOMENTS THAT REALLY CINCHED
IT FOR YAGIN.
I MEAN OF COURSE THE FIRST REALM HOMINICK'S
CONTROLLING, YAGIN LANDS THAT BIG KNOCK DOWN, GETS ON
TOP, LANDS A LITTLE BIT, SECURES THE FIRST ROUND,
SAME THING HOMINICK'S CONTROLLING IN ROUND TWO.
YAGIN LANDS ANOTHER BIG BOMB, GETS ON TOP, SECURES ROUND
TWO AND THEN ROUND THREE OF COURSE HOMINICK CONTROLS.
BUT IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO TAKE IT HOME, HOMINICK REALLY
NEEDED TO DO MORE AND DANA WHITE MENTIONED THAT.
HE NEEDED TO DO MORE IN THE THIRD ROUND FINISH THAT
FIGHT OFF BECAUSE YAGIN DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO TO WIN.
(CYRUS) WELL I THINK HOMINICK WILL BE BACK NO DOUBT
ABOUT THAT.
MICHAEL MCDONALD DEFEATING MIGUEL ANGEL TORRES AND
TORRES HAS LOST A LOT OF FIGHTS HERE LATELY.
HE GOES DOWN BY THE KO, MCDONALD LOOKED REAL GOOD.
LET'S CHECK OUT SOME POST FIGHT STUFF.
(CASEY) GOT YOUR EYES ON ANYBODY IN PARTICULAR?
(MALE) ANYONE WHO YOU KNOW BRINGS IT, I LIKE PEOPLE
WHO BRING IT AND HAVE EXCITING FIGHTS, ANYONE WHO COMES
TO FINISH FIGHTS THAT'S WHO I'M LOOKING FOR.
YOU KNOW I DON'T LIKE PEOPLE WHO YOU KNOW RIDE OUT
FIGHTS THAT'S NOT WHAT I'M ABOUT AND I LIKE TO SHOW
THE CROWD YOU KNOW GOOD FIGHTS AND I LIKE BONUSES.
(CYRUS) MOVING ALONG HERE, ON THE MAIN CARD, BEN
ROTHWELL LOOKED TREMENDOUS.
CASEY WE TALKED ABOUT THAT AT THE WEIGH INS.
THIS GUY WAS HUMONGOUS.
HE DROPPED A LOT OF THAT BELLY FAT AND THIS DUDE LOOKED
ALL MUSCLE DEFEATED BRENDAN SCHAUB VIA KO, THREW SOME
BIG TIME PUNCHES.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF BEN ROTHWELL AS HE KIND OF
MOVES UP THAT HEAVYWEIGHT LADDER?
(CASEY) HE LOOKS GREAT.
YOU CAN TELL THAT THE GUYS IN MUCH BETTER CONDITION.
YOU KNOW HE'S GOT EVERYTHING TOGETHER THE WAY HE NEEDS TO.
HE WAS A LITTLE TROUBLE.
YOU KNOW SCHAUB CLIPPED HIM THERE AND THEN BUT THEN
YOU KNOW OPENED UP ON HIM BUT YOU CAN'T DO THAT WITH ROTHWELL.
YOU KNOW LANDS A BIG SHOT WINS THE FIGHT AND KNOCKS
BRENDAN SCHAUB COMPLETELY UNCONSCIOUS.
(CYRUS) BRENDAN SCHAUB HE JUST GOT KNOCKED OUT BY GARRIN
NOT TOO LONG AGO.
SO SCHAUBS BEEN TAKING A FEW LOSSES BUT HE'LL BE BACK
IN THE CAGE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT.
YOU HAVE RORY MACDONALD LOOKING TREMENDOUS AGAINST
CHE MILLS, TKO BY PUNCHES.
HE WAS TAKING THEM DOWN JUST HANDLING BUSINESS THE
WHOLE ENTIRE FIGHT.
THIS GUYS GOING TO BE HUGE.
THEN OF COURSE THE MAIN EVENT CASEY, AND THIS IS THE BIG
ONE AND THE ELECTRICITY FOR THIS FIGHT WAS SOMETHING ELSE.
WE HAD TO COME OUT INTO THE ARENA AND WATCH IT OURSELVES.
BUT I'VE NEVER SEEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS AND WE'VE SEEN
SOME BIG FIGHTS.
BUT THIS HAD SOMETHING TOTALLY SPECIAL THAT WE'VE NEVER SEEN.
(CASEY) WELL THE HAIR ON MY BACK OF MY NECK WAS
STANDING UP THE ENTIRE TIME.
YOU KNOW AND THIS IS WHERE IT WAS YOU KNOW SOME PEOPLE
SAY THAT YOU KNOW IT DIDN'T HAVE THE BIG KNOCK DOWNS
AND THE GROUND BATTLES AND ALL THAT BUT I'M GOING TO TELL
YOU GREG JACKSON WAS LOOKING ON THAT FIGHT VERY, VERY
HAPPY BECAUSE THAT GAME PLAN WAS EXECUTED PERFECTLY.
(CYRUS) HE WAS, YOU KNOW JON JONES JUST KEPT
FRUSTRATING RASHAD EVANS AND JUST DOING WHAT HE DOES
BEST LIKE DANA WHITE TALKS ABOUT IN THE POST FIGHT
JUST THROWING HIS ELBOWS LIKE HANDS AT ONE POINT.
LOOKED TREMENDOUS AND WHAT A GREAT FIGHT JON JONES
HOLDING ON TO THE TITLE WITH AN UNANIMOUS DECISION
GOING ALL FIVE ROUNDS THE FIRST TIME HE HAS EVER
DONE THAT.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT A FEW POST FIGHT INTERVIEW
SNIPPETS FROM THE PRESS CONFERENCE, A LOT OF
GREAT STUFF THAT WE GOT THERE WITH DANA WHITE AND THE
REST OF THE BIG WINNERS.
(CASEY) DO YOU STILL AFFIRM RIGHT NOW, THAT, THAT
THE JACKSON CAMP, YOUR PREPARATION THAT WAY HAD A
BIG PART IN THIS FIGHT?
(JONES) YEAH, DEFINITELY, YOU KNOW I FELT RIGHT AT HOME
OUT THERE.
YOU KNOW THANKS TO MY COACHES AND MY TEAMMATES, YOU KNOW
I HAD, I DIDN'T HIRE ANYBODY NEW FOR THIS CAMP, THE
EXACT SAME TEAM THAT I HAD BEFORE AND TEAMMATES.
I BROUGHT IN ONLY ONE WRESTLER TO HELP ME OUT AND
HE VOLUNTEERED BECAUSE YOU KNOW HE WRESTLES WITH
MY WRESTLING COACH IZZY.
BUT ANYWAYS YEAH, I BELIEVE IN MY TEAM WHOLE HEARTEDLY AND
MY WHOLE TEAM SACRIFICED THEIR FIGHTING STYLE THEY
MAKE RASHAD THE BEST THE ABILITY.
(RASHAD) HE'S A TALENTED KID AND HE'S GOT A LOT BETTER
LIKE I THOUGHT HE DID AND HE WAS ABLE TO KEEP ME FROM
DOING WHAT I REALLY WANTED TO DO AND YOU KNOW THAT'S WHAT
HE NEEDED TO DO TO GET THE WIN.
SO YOU KNOW I GOT TO GIVE HIM HIS RESPECT AND YOU KNOW
HE'S THE CHAMPION.
(CYRUS) WHAT ABOUT THE REPORTS YOU SAID THAT ANDERSON
FIRED IF HE DIDN'T FIGHT YOU?
(DANA) THAT IS BULL****, I NEVER, THAT IS SUCH *** LIE.
(CYRUS) IT GOT AROUND YESTERDAY.
(DANA) CRAZY I TWEETED YESTERDAY WHEREVER THAT
CAME FROM IF IT WAS A MEDIA SOURCE, WHOEVER SAID IT
IT'S AN ABSOLUTE FLAT OUT LIE, JUST LIKE I BET HALF A
MILLION DOLLARS ON, ON JON JONES.
YOU KNOW THERE'S A LOT OF STUPID THAT GOES ON THIS SPORT.
NOW WITH PEOPLE YOU GET THESE GOOFY WEBSITES THAT WANT
TO GET SOME HITS AND YOU KNOW IT MAKES ME SICK.
IT MAKES ME SICK.
(CYRUS) YOU KNOW IT WAS JUST COOL CASEY BEING IN THE
SAME ROOM AS DANA WHITE.
IT WAS THE FIRST TIME WE HAD EVER GOT THAT ACCESS AND
YOU KNOW HE'S A REAL CANDID GUY.
HE'S DOWN TO EARTH AND I THINK THAT'S WHY PEOPLE LIKE
HIM RIGHT?
(CASEY) ABSOLUTELY, BESIDES THE PRESS CONFERENCE, HE
STUCK AROUND FOR ANOTHER HOUR TALKING TO US, GIVING US
THE INSIDE ON THINGS AND THAT'S REALLY WHAT YOU
KNOW MAKES DANA WHITE A CUT ABOVE THE REST.
(CYRUS) NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.
TALKING ABOUT THE THIRD ROUND.
WE'RE ABOUT TO GET TO THAT.
WE HAVE INTERVIEWS FROM DAN HENDERSON, BEN
HENDERSON, ROBERT DRYSDALE, BRUCE BUFFER, AND EVEN

ATLANTA IS HOTTER THAN IT'S EVER BEEN WHEN UFC COMES
TO TOWN.
(BRUCE) THE CITY OF ATLANTA EMBRACING THIS STRONGLY.
I NOTICE THAT WHEN I'M OUT IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYBODY IS
AWARE OF THIS FIGHT, EVEN LANDING AT THE AIRPORT.
SO THE HUM IS HIGH AND IT SHOULD BE, BECAUSE IT'S
GOING TO BE HUGELY TREMENDOUS EVENT TONIGHT.
(MALE) THE TYPE OF OPPONENT HE PROVED HIMSELF TODAY.

(CYRUS) WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, (LAUGHTER) (PUNK) I DIDN'T KNOW.
NO I DIDN'T KNOW.
OH YEAH, I MEAN YOU KNOW, I DON'T THINK DANA'S BETTING
ON THE FIGHTS.
IF THAT'S WHAT EVERYBODY SAYS THAT WENT DOWN, I DON'T
THINK HE, I DON'T THINK HE'S THAT GUY.
HE'S NOT GOING TO GET CAUGHT UP IN THAT.
HE'S GOT TO MUCH GOING ON IN HIS LIFE TO WORRY ABOUT
THINGS LIKE THAT.
(CYRUS) GREAT INTERVIEWS THERE I KNOW I WAS SO EXCITED
TO TALK TO BRUCE BUFFER ONE ON ONE, A GUY I'VE IDEALIZED
FOR A WHILE SINCE I'VE GOT INTO THE CAGE ANNOUNCING

A PLACE DEEP WITHIN WITH THE LIKES OF EDDIE ALVAREZ,

AND THE WILL TO CONTINUE AND WHEN THEY FIND THOSE
THINGS THEY KNOW THAT THE JOURNEY HAS BEEN HALF COMPLETE.
THEY MUST SEARCH FOR THE KEY THAT UNLOCKS THE CAGE THAT
