MMA INSIDE THE CAGE BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) WELCOME TO MMA INSIDE THE CAGE, THIS WEEK
CASEY SHOWS US HOW VITOR BELFORT AND JOSEPH
BENAVIDEZ COULD'VE BETTERED THEIR CHANCES AT UFC 152
AND WE'LL LOOK AT THE BIG EFC AFRICA 16 CARD ON OCTOBER 19TH.
HUGE SHOW, I'M YOUR HOST CYRUS FEES, NEXT TO ME THE
AWARD NOMINATED HOST CASEY OXENDINE.
(CASEY) THE EMMY'S WERE LAST WEEK WEREN'T THEY?
(CYRUS) THEY WERE, YES.
(CASEY) AND JENNIFER WAS WATCHING A LIFETIME
MOVIE THEREFORE I WAS FORCED TO HAVE TO KIND OF SWITCH
BACK AND FORTH (CYRUS) YEAH, (CASEY) I MISSED OUR SPOT
ON THERE, WHAT DID WE TAKE LIKE FOUR OR FIVE OF THEM?
(CYRUS) WE DIDN'T, WE DIDN'T WIN THIS YEAR.
(CASEY) HOW MANY WERE WE NOMINATED FOR?
(CYRUS) WELL WE, WE WEREN'T NOMINATED EITHER.
WE WERE ACTUALLY SNUBBED ONCE AGAIN.
(CASEY) WAIT THAT'S, THAT'S THE DAYTIME EMMY'S
I'M THINKING OF.
(CYRUS) WELL NO, YEAH, WE'RE TAKING OUT SUSAN LUCCI,
ONE LIFE TO LIVE, ALL THOSE, GUIDING LIGHT, WATCH OUT.
CASEY ENOUGH WITH THE SHENANIGANS, LET'S GET TO
THE MMA NEWS FLURRY.
WE'RE STARTING WITH A BOXING STORY, WELL A BOXING
STORY INVOLVING A FORMER MMA FIGHTER.
SO I GUESS IT COUNTS HERE.
BOXING HAS A LOT OF EVENTS COMING UP BUT MAYBE NONE
MORE INTERESTING THAN THE CONFIRMED FIGHT BETWEEN
ROY JONES JUNIOR AND STREET FIGHTING LEGEND KIMBO SLICE.
NOW IT'S SET FOR DECEMBER IN JAMAICA.
IT PROBABLY WON'T BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY BY
BOXING ENTHUSIASTS BUT OUTSIDE OF MAYBE A PACQUIAO, AND
A MAYWEATHER, MAYBE A CLINCHO FIGHT FOR THE CAUSAL FAN
THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST FIGHTS TO HAPPEN IN A WHILE.
(CASEY) THE WEBSITES ARE SLAMMING IT.
THEY SAY THERE'S NO PLACE FOR THIS FIGHT IN THIS SPORT
BUT YOU REALLY, YOU TAKE IT INTO PERSPECTIVE IT COULD
BE INTERESTING BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT KIMBO WHO OF COURSE
HAS THE STREET FIGHTING ROOTS AND THE UFC TIME.
SO MMA CROSSOVER HERE AND THEN YOU'VE GOT ROY JONES
JUNIOR WHO IS POSSIBLY THE GREATEST PROFOUND FIGHTER
OF ALL TIME.
OF COURSE HE'S NOT LOOKED VERY GOOD IN HIS LAST 14 OUTINGS.
HE'S 7 AND 7, SO BUT WHEN YOU TAKE AND YOU PUT THESE
TWO TOGETHER AT THESE PARTICULAR SPOTS IN
THEIR CAREER.
IT COULD BE INTERESTING.
(CYRUS) I THINK SO TOO.
(CASEY) SO I DON'T THINK ITS PAY PER VIEW WORTHY,
BUT SOMETHING TO TAKE A LOOK AT.
(CYRUS) I'D DROP A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY ON IT, MAYBE 10,
15 BUCKS.
UFC AND PRIDE VET ALSO OWNER OF JUNGLE FIGHT, WALLID
ISMAL MADE A PROCLAMATION LAST WEEK THAT JOSE PELE LANDI
JONS IS THE BEST FIGHTER NEVER TO WIN A TITLE.
NOW OF COURSE WE KNOW PELE LANDI IS GOING TO BE
FIGHTING NOVEMBER 2ND AT ABU DHABI WARRIOR AGAINST
YEVGEINY MAHTEENKO, TALK ABOUT THE BRAZILIAN LEGEND HERE CASEY.
YOU THINK THIS IS A VALID PROCLAMATION THERE BY
WALLID ISMAIL.
(CASEY) I COMPLETELY CONCUR WITH THAT.
PELE LANDI IS ONE OF MY FIRST FAVORITE FIGHTERS.
I WATCHED HIM BACK IN THE 90'S AND THOSE IVC TAPES, THE
TRUE NO HOLDS BAR AND HE STOOD OUT EVEN BEYOND
ANDERSON SILVA, WANDERLEI SILVA AS THE EPITOME OF
SHOOT BOX BACK THEN, AND THEN OF COURSE HE WENT ON
AND FOUGHT IN ROME GEORGIA AGAINST PAT MILETICH IN
2000, AT THAT WORLD EXTREME FIGHTING 8 EVENT.
I ACTUALLY THAT, THAT WAS MY FIRST SHOW THAT I
EVER ATTENDED AND WHEN I GOT THERE THAT WAS THE MAIN
EVENT AND I GOT TO SEE CHUCK LIDDELL FOR THE FIRST TIME
AND TITO ORTIZ AND ALL THOSE GUYS BUT THE GUY THAT
REALLY STOOD OUT WAS PELE BECAUSE I HAD WATCHED SO
MUCH OF HIM.
HE WAS SO AGGRESSIVE AND TRULY THE EPITOME OF NO HOLDS
BAR FIGHTING.
SO YES I THINK THAT HE CERTAINLY DESERVES THAT MONIKER.
(CYRUS) I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE ABU DHABI WARRIORS NOVEMBER 2ND.
I'M GOING TO BE THERE ANNOUNCING IT AND I JUST
CAN'T WAIT TO BE IN ATTENDANCE TO SEE PELE LANDI.
WFCTV DOT COM YOU CAN WATCH THE WHOLE EVENT FREE ONLINE.
FINALLY LET'S LOOK AT LAST WEEKENDS BIG EVENT UFC 152,
A LOT OF FIREWORKS ON THE UNDERCARD CASEY,
SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF COURSE, CUB SWANSON WITH A BIG KO
ON CHARLES OLIVEIRA, MATT HAMILL WITH THE VICTORY IN
HIS COMEBACK FIGHT AND OF COURSE MICHAEL BISPING WITH
A PRETTY SOLID DECISION OVER BRIAN STANN.
CO-MAIN AND MAIN, FIRST THE FLYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH,
THE FIRST EVER FLYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH.
IT WAS DEMETRIOUS JOHNSON, MIGHTY MOUSE BECOMING
THE FIRST UFC FLYWEIGHT CHAMPION.
A LOT OF BOOING IN THIS FIGHT THOUGH AND THAT'S KIND OF
WHAT THE STORYLINE WAS.
(CASEY) I THINK THAT'S COMPLETELY LAME AND YOU
LISTEN TO DANA WHITE'S COMMENT, HE SAID THAT IF
YOU DIDN'T LIKE THIS FIGHT AS A FAN THEN DON'T BOTHER
TO EVER BUY ANOTHER SHOW.
(CYRUS) YEAH, (CASEY) HE DOESN'T WANT YOU TO
BUY ANOTHER SHOW BECAUSE IT WAS A GREAT FIGHT AND
YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT TWO GUYS THAT IN THE FIRST THREE
ROUNDS COULD HARDLY GET THEIR HANDS ON EACH OTHER BECAUSE
OF THEIR SPEED AND THEIR ATHLETICISM.
IT'S NOT BECAUSE THEY WERE BEING LAZY.
YOU CAN LOOK AT BENAVIDEZ FACE AFTER THE FIGHT AND TELL
HE WAS REALLY IN A SLUG FEST.
(CYRUS) A LOT OF DAMAGE.
(CASEY) FOUR AND FIVE, YOU KNOW THE ACTION
ACTUALLY SLOWED DOWN ENOUGH TO WHERE THEY WERE
INTERACTING LIKE FRESH WELTERWEIGHTS.
(CYRUS) IT'S AMAZING ISN'T IT?
(CASEY) IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.
SO FOR ANYBODY TO BOO THAT FIGHT TO ME, I THOUGHT
IT ECLIPSE EVERY FIGHT ON THE CARD INCLUDING THE MAIN EVENT.
(CYRUS) WOW, SPEAKING OF THE MAIN EVENT, NOBODY
REALLY EXPECTED THE 35 YEAR OLD VITOR BELFORT TO
LAST LONG, WITH THE CURRENT PHENOM OF THE UFC JON
BONES JONES.
WE COULDN'T BE MORE WRONG AS VITOR DID HANG AROUND,
HAD SOME GREAT EXCHANGES, PUT HIS HANDS ON HIM AND
JUST ABOUT GOT THE ARM BAR VICTORY IN THE FIRST ROUND.
NOW JONES WOULD GO TO WIN BY AMERICANA IN THE FOURTH
ROUND, BUT HE REALLY SHOWED A LOT OF GRIT IN THIS FIGHT CASEY.
(CASEY) WELL HE DID.
VITOR BELFORT HE SLAPPED ON THAT ARM BAR AND I THOUGHT
IT WAS THERE.
I'VE HAD THAT SORT OF INJURY BEFORE WHERE I HAD THE ARM
BAR ON.
I DIDN'T QUITE TAP TO IT.
I COULD HEAR IT CRACKING LIKE CELERY BUT YOU DON'T
REALLY FEEL IT SO MUCH SO YOU'RE THERE IN THE HEAT
OF THE BATTLE, SO YOU GUT YOUR WAY THROUGH IT AND THEN
WHEN YOU COOL OFF THREE OR FOUR HOURS LATER YOU FEEL
IT AND YOU FEEL IT FOR THE NEXT TWO MONTHS BECAUSE
THAT'S WHERE THE RECOVERY ON SOMETHING LIKE THAT IS.
SO HUGE TESTAMENT TO JON JONES TENACITY AND HIS PUSH BUT
ALSO TO VITOR BELFORT TO HANG IN THERE MAN.
HE'S AN OLD SCHOOL LEGEND.
HE WENT OUT THERE TO FIGHT AND OF COURSE HE DIDN'T GET
THE VICTORY BUT YOU KNOW IT WAS A VERY VALIANT EFFORT
AND VALIANT EFFORT BY JON JONES YOU KNOW BIG PROPS
TO HIM FOR LANDING THAT AMERICANA ON A BJJ BLACK
BELT OF THE MAGNITUDE OF VITOR BELFORT.
(CYRUS) THAT WAS IMPRESSIVE.
LAST WEEK YOU KNOW WE HAD A NUMBER OF ONE PUNCH
KNOCKOUTS IN OUR CLIP OF THE WEEK CONTEST BUT OF
COURSE IT'S UP TO THE FANS TO DECIDES WHO WINS THE PRIZE PACK.
THIS WEEK IT WAS CLOSE, BUT THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE
WINNER AND THAT WINNER IS, LET'S GET THAT DRUMROLL,
KITO ANDREWS FROM WEST COAST FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIPS
WITH THE BIG SLAM AND TAP OUT VICTORY.
IT'S WESTCOASTFIGHTING DOT COM FOR MORE INFORMATION, A
GREAT SHOW THERE.
(CYRUS) NOW THIS WEEK THE PRIZE PACK IS AMPED UP
ONCE AGAIN, CASEY.
LET THEM KNOW WHAT THEY CAN WIN THIS WEEK.
(CASEY) WELL YOU'VE GOT THE ELEVATION TRAINING MASK
2.0, THE SHAKER CUP AND PRE WORKOUT FORMULA FROM
GAMMA LABS AND APPAREL FROM BAMF FIGHT GEAR, HUNTER
MMA, AND VXRSI.
(CYRUS) WELL CASEY HE'S GOING TO SCHOOL YOU ON SOME
CAGE SCIENCE FROM UFC 152 IN THE NEXT ROUND, BUT LET'S
GET TO OUR FIRST FOUR FINALIST FOR CLIP OF THE WEEK.
(FIGHT & CROWD SOUNDS)
(MUSIC)
(COMMERCIALS)
(MUSIC)
MMA INSIDE THE CAGE BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) WELCOME BACK, NOW UFC 152 HAD TWO EXCITING FIGHTS
IN THE CO-MAIN AND THE MAIN EVENT, VITOR BELFORT
AND JOSEPH BENAVIDEZ WERE ON THE LOSING END BUT
CASEY'S GOING TO TAKE US TO THE MATS TO SHOW YOU HOW
THEY COULD'VE CHANGED THEIR OUTCOMES.
(CASEY) ALL RIGHT I'M HERE WITH TYLER MELEE MINTON,
AND WE'RE GOING OVER A LITTLE BIT OF THE CAGE SCIENCE
FROM THE BENAVIDEZ AND JOHNSON FIGHT FROM LAST WEEKEND'S
UFC AND IT WENT LIKE THIS.
BENAVIDEZ LOOKING GOOD IN THE FIGHT BUT REALLY WHAT MADE
THE DIFFERENCE WERE THE TAKEDOWNS AND EARLY IN
THE FIGHT YOU SAW BENAVIDEZ PUSHING FOR THE TAKEDOWNS.
THE HIPS OF JOHNSON SO GOOD.
SO THIS IS A TACTIC THAT POSSIBLY COULD'VE HELP
HIM SECURE THESE TAKEDOWNS AND THUS SCORE AND TAKE
THOSE ROUNDS, AND IT GOES LIKE THIS, YOU'VE GOT TO USE
THE CAGE TO BLOCK OFF THE HIPS AND BLOCK THE SPRAWL,
WHENEVER A GUY IS SPRAWLING AND SMASHING YOU DOWN.
IF YOU USE THIS IT MAKES IT VERY, VERY DIFFICULT FOR
HIM TO SPRAWL AND IF YOU WATCH MY FEET ARE BACK.
OKAY TYPICALLY SPEAKING WHEN YOU WORK A UNDER HOOK
CLINCH FROM OUT IN THE CENTER, YOU'RE GOING TO KEEP YOUR
LEG INSIDE AND THAT'S TO PREVENT THE LATERAL.
BUT IN THIS CASE THE CAGE PREVENTS THE LATERAL.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THAT SO I CAN DRIVE ALL OF
MY WEIGHT IN.
NOW I DON'T WANT TO BE OVER, I WANT TO BE ARCHED AND
UPRIGHT LIKE THIS.
I'M GOING TO USE MY SHOULDER TO PRESS.
YOU SEE HOW I DRAW HIM UP ONTO HIS TOES.
OKAY THAT'S GOING TO HELP ME USE THIS LIFT AND I'M
NOT GOING TO USE MY BACK.
I'M GOING TO USE THE CAGE TO HELP ME MAKE THIS LIFT ON
A GUY THAT'S ABOUT 35 POUNDS HEAVIER THAN I AM.
SO WATCH, I LIFT HIM UP.
I'M GOING TO SCOOP UNDER.
I'M GOING TO GRAB MY GABLE GRIP AND WATCH I'M GOING
TO BRING MY LEFT KNEE AROUND AND I'M GOING TO DRIVE
HIM THROUGH THE CAGE AND LIFT HIM UP.
OKAY, NOW WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT THIS YOU GOT TO THINK,
IT'S ALL CAGE, IT'S NOT BACK AND THIS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE
OF THIS.
LOOK I'M HOLDING IT IN THERE'S NO WAY MY BACK IS GOING TO
BE STRONG ENOUGH TO LIFT IN SETTINGS, BUT IF YOU LOOK
I'M HOLDING HIM HERE, IT'S NO MUSCLE.
I'M JUST HOLDING HIM HERE ON MY SHOULDER AND THAT'S
WHAT'S GOING TO HELP TO MAKE THESE TAKEDOWNS WORK
AND REALLY EVEN IF BENAVIDEZ COULD HAVE GOT HIM DOWN
AND SECURE JUST FOR A MOMENT IT COULD HAVE MADE
THE DIFFERENCE IN THE FIRST THREE ROUNDS WHICH
POSSIBLY COULD HAVE TAKEN THE FIGHT FOR HIM.
HOWEVER WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE JON JONES AND
VITOR BELFORT FINISH, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE IRON CROSS.
OKAY WHICH STARTS HERE, WHICH OF COURSE NEUTRALIZE
MY ABILITY TO DEFEND WITH MY RIGHT HAND, OR TO ESCAPE IT.
IT BLOCKS ME DOWN AND IT ALSO LEAVES ME OPEN FOR THE STRIKES.
IT LEAVES ME OPEN FOR THIS AMERICANA WHICH
ULTIMATELY ENDED THE FIGHT THAT NIGHT.
SO THIS IS WHAT WE GOT TO LOOK AT HOW DO WE DEFEND THE
IRON CROSS.
WELL WE CAN'T GIVE UP THE AMERICANA AND THE IRON
CROSS OTHERWISE THE FIGHTS OVER.
WE GOT TO MAKE SURE THAT ONE IS IN TIGHT.
SO LOOK WHEN I GET TAKEN DOWN AND I UP HERE ON MY BACK
HE GOES AFTER THE IRON CROSS, I GOT TO MAKE SURE THIS ARM
IS IN TIGHT.
I'M GOING TO SAY THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE RIGHT HERE.
MY HANDS ARE CROSSED MY HEART.
I GOT TO MAKE SURE I'M RIGHT THERE AND LOOK I'M GOING
TO USE MY LEFT FOOT, I'M GOING TO POST IT AND I'M GOING
TO USE MY SHRIMP AS I MAKE THIS SHRIMP LOOK, I'M GOING
TO DRIVE MY FOREARM ACROSS HERE.
I'M GOING TO KEEP MY HEAD IN LOW TO MINIMIZE THE AMOUNT
OF DAMAGE THAT I'M TAKING AND LOOK I'M GOING TO DRIVE
THIS ARM IN AND IF I CAN MAKE ENOUGH SPACE, I'M GOING
TO INSTANTLY TRY AND GO TO THE SINGLE.
IF I CAN GO TO THE SINGLE MAYBE I CAN GO TO THE BACK.
OKAY AND THAT WOULD BE MY ESCAPE.
NOW OF COURSE THE AMERICANA IF I CAN DEFEND IF I CAN
AVOID THIS BUT HE GOES AFTER THE AMERICANA ALONE, WELL
THE SAME THING.
I'M GOING TO DO THE OPPOSITE.
I'M GOING TO PUSH THIS FOOT.
I'M GOING TO REACH OUT AND I'M GOING TO GRAB RIGHT HERE
AT THIS PINKY KNUCKLE.
I'M GOING TO WALK IN AND COME UP.
I'M GOING TO HOLD ON AND I'M GOING TO TRY AND DO THE
SAME THING.
OKAY NOW THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I THINK THAT
VITOR BELFORT UNDERSTOOD COMPLETELY BUT THIS IS
THE SITUATION WHEN YOU ARE FATIGUED AND THERE IS
DAMAGE THAT HAS BEEN APPLIED OVER THREE TO FOUR ROUNDS
OF FIGHTING THAT IS WHEN IT IS CRUCIAL THAT YOU ACT ON
THESE QUICK.
I FULLY BELIEVE THAT VITOR BELFORT UNDERSTANDS THESE
MOVE SETS BUT UNFORTUNATELY FOR HIM HE WAS UNABLE TO
ENACT THEM THUS JON JONES RETAINS THE TITLE AND
THAT'S CAGE SCIENCE.
(CYRUS) I'LL TELL YOU WHAT CASEY A LITTLE CAGE SCIENCE
IS GOOD FOR EVERYONE AND SO IS SOME EFC AFRICA.
A FULL PREVIEW OF EFC AFRICA 16, AND A SPECIAL EFC
AFRICA MAIN EVENT OF THE WEEK AFTER YOUR NEXT FOUR
FINALIST FOR CLIP OF THE WEEK.
(FIGHT & CROWD SOUNDS)
(MUSIC)
(COMMERCIALS)
(MUSIC)
MMA INSIDE THE CAGE BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) AND IT'S THIRD ROUND ACTION TIME TO IMPRESS
THOSE JUDGES ONCE AGAIN.
ONE THING YOU CAN COUNT ON EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS IS
THAT EFC AFRICA IS PUTTING ON ANOTHER GREAT EVENT IN
SOUTH AFRICA.
NOW THAT THEY ARE HOOKED UP WITH OUR HOME AT FIGHT NOW
TV, THAT MEANS EVEN MORE EFC FOR THE US AUDIENCE CASEY.
IT'S GREAT.
(CASEY) I LOVE THE EFC.
I ALWAYS SING THEIR PRAISES WHENEVER WE SEE A NEW
SHOW COME OUT.
THEY ALWAYS ASTOUND ME.
THESE GUYS ARE VERY, VERY EXCITING, ALL THE
FIGHTERS, ALL OF THE COMPETITION IS GOOD.
THEY DO BRING A LITTLE BIT OF OUTSIDE TALENT IN, BUT FOR
THE MOST PART YOU SEE SOUTH AFRICAN GUYS AND THESE
GUYS ARE REALLY GROWING EVERYTHING FROM THE
GRASSROOTS UP AND IT'S EXCELLENT.
(CYRUS) HEY THERE'S A REASON WHY THE UFC TRYING TO
HEAD DOWN THERE AS WE SPEAK.
WELL THIS EVENT LOOKS PRETTY IMPRESSIVE ON PAPER,
OBVIOUSLY THREE BIG TITLE FIGHTS ON THIS ONE.
BUT EVEN ON THE UNDERCARD, SOME GREAT HEAVYWEIGHT
ACTION, WHICH EVERYBODY LOVES TO SEE.
ANDREW VAN ZYL TAKING ON IAN VISSER AND RISKY
MICHOLAS TAKING ON TINY STRAUSS WHO IS CERTAINLY
NOT TINY.
(CASEY) WELL OF COURSE VAN ZYL THIS GUY IS ALWAYS IN
THE TITLE HUNT, A VERY, VERY TOUGH COMPETITOR THERE
FOR EFC, AND THEN TINY, THAT'S, THAT IS A (CYRUS)
A MONSTER OF A MAN, (CASEY) YEAH, A HUGE GUY AND
WE'RE GOING TO SEE HIM IN THE HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION
VERY, VERY POPULAR FAN FAVORITE DOWN THERE.
(CYRUS) HE'S LOOKING TO GET HIS FIRST WIN.
WE'RE GOING TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS THERE AND THEN
OF COURSE YOU LOOK AT THESE THREE TITLE FIGHTS, A
TRIPLE MAIN EVENT IF YOU WILL.
IT'LL BE 145 CHAMP DEMARTE PENA DEFENDING
AGAINST TERRENCE GRIESSEL, WHO HAD TO STEP IN FOR THE
INJURED WENTZEL NEL.
THE WENTZEL NEL FIGHT WAS GOING TO BE HUGE.
GRIESSEL DEFIANTLY GOING TO HAVE HIS WORK CUT OUT FOR
HIM DEALING WITH DEMARTE PENA.
(CASEY) PENA IS INCREDIBLE.
HE'S 4 AND 0.
HE IS THE CHAMPION AND THIS IS A GUY WHO JUST CHOKED
OUT HAWKEY IN HIS LAST OUTING.
SO HUGE THINGS FOR THIS GUY.
HE IS ON A ROLL AND I THINK HE'S GOING TO CONTINUE
THAT ROLE WITH THIS FIGHT.
(CYRUS) I THINK SO TOO.
FOR THE WELTERWEIGHT STRAP ITS CHAMPION JADYSON COSTA
MAKING HIS FIRST TITLE DEFENSE AGAINST A MAN ON A
HUGE WINNING STREAK, A BIG FAN FAVORITE.
HE'S THE WELTERWEIGHT DARK HORSE, MICHIEL OPPERMAN.
THIS IS GOING TO BE A FIGHT FOR THE AGES.
(CASEY) WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT OPPERMAN, THIS IS A GUY
THAT'S ON A 8 FIGHT WINNING STREAK, UNDEFEATED IN THE
EFC AND IS REALLY, REALLY MAKING A PUSH FOR THIS
BELT, BUT YOU KNOW COSTA HE'S NOT GOING TO GO DOWN EASY.
OF COUSE AFTER DEFEATING DALLAS JAKOBI HE SET
HIMSELF AS THE EFC ANTI HERO AND IT REALLY YOU SAW
THE CROWD VOICE THEIR DISAPPROVAL FOR THIS GUY
BUT IT MAKES IT ALL SO MUCH SWEETER WHEN YOU SEE THIS
GUY STEP INTO THE CAGE.
(CYRUS) I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT AND THEN FINALLY
HOW ABOUT THE MAIN EVENT A HEAVYWEIGHT SHOWDOWN, TITLE
ON THE LINE AS RUAN FANGZZ POTTS WILL BE DEFENDING
HIS TITLE AGAINST A MONSTER OF A MAN, BERNARD MIKIXI.
HE'S CALLED THE BLACK PANTHER.
HE'S BEEN ON A TEAR BUT IS HE CHAMPION CALIBER?
THAT'S THE QUESTION.
(CASEY) THIS GUY IS ON A TWO FIGHT WINNING STREAK.
IT'S HIS TURN.
NOW HE DID LOSE TO WESSEL AND VAN ZYL OKAY IN THE PAST.
TWO GUYS THAT RUAN POTTS HAS DISPOSED OF PRETTY HANDILY
BUT STILL YET IT'S THIS GUY'S TURN.
MIKIXI IS A VERY, VERY TOUGH GUY AND I THINK IT'S GOING
TO BE A VERY GREAT FIGHT.
(CYRUS) OH, I THINK THE FANS ARE GOING TO LOVE THAT ONE.
I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS EVENT TO GO DOWN.
IT'S FRIDAY OCTOBER 19TH, AND YES YOU CAN WATCH IT ON
FIGHT NOW TV HERE IN THE US FOR MORE INFORMATION, GO
CHECK OUT EFCAFRICA DOT COM AND FIGHTNOW DOT COM ON HOW

(COM 1) MICHIEL'S NOW GOT HALF GUARD, MARTIN KEEPS HIS
HEAD OUT, LANDS A SHOT, (COM 2) OPPERMAN LOVES THE CROWD.
(COM 1) HE'S REALLY TRYING TO SET UP FOR THAT TRIANGLE,

THE BODY.
(COM 1) MARTIN'S NOW GOT BOTH OF HIS HOOKS IN.
(COM 2) IT'S BEEN A FASCINATING FIGHT.
TWO HIGHLY SKILLED ATHLETES, (COM 1) LANDING SOME
HE'S ON THE MICHIELS BACK, THIS IS DANGEROUS,
DANGEROUS SPOT ON THE MICHIELTO BE IN.
(CROWD CHEERING) (COM 2) MICIHEL DOING WELL.
HE WANTS TO SPIN IT AROUND AND FALL INTO GUARD.
(COM 1) RIGHT HAND, FIND IT'S WAY FOR DEFENSIVE AND START IT.
MARTIN'S STILL GOT HIS BACK.
(CROWD CHEERING) (COM 1) MICHIEL DOING VERY, VERY
WELL NEARLY BACK TO HIS FEATURE.
