(VOICEOVER) MMA INSIDE THE CAGE BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) WELCOME TO MMA INSIDE THE CAGE BRINGING THE WORLD
OF MIXED MARTIAL ARTS STRAIGHT TO YOU.
I'M YOUR HOST CYRUS FEES, NEXT TO ME THE MAN THAT IS ALL
ATE UP WITH JEALOUSY, TALKING ABOUT CASEY OXENDINE.
(CASEY) WELL I HAVE TO ADMIT I'M A LITTLE PERTURBED
RIGHT NOW THAT I DIDN'T MAKE IT OUT TO THE ARNOLD,
(CYRUS) YEAH, I DON'T BLAME YOU.
(CASEY) AND TO STRIKEFORCE, YOU KNOW THAT WAS WOMEN'S
MMA HISTORY RIGHT THERE.
(CYRUS) IT WAS, IT WAS GOOD.
(CASEY) YOU KNOW WE MADE SOME WOMEN'S MMA HISTORY OURSELVES.
YOU KNOW MY FIGHTER MICHAL TYSON, SHE YOU KNOW
BROUGHT HOME HER FIRST MMA VICTORY RIGHT THERE AT
CAGE BRAWL THAT SAME NIGHT.
SO YOU KNOW, I'M NOT TOO AGITATED.
(CYRUS) YEAH, (CASEY) MAYBE A LITTLE BIT.
(CYRUS) I CAN SEE IT ON YOUR FACE BRO.
YOU KNOW WHAT MMA INSIDE THE CAGE DID MAKE IT OUT
TO COLUMBUS OHIO, TO THE ARNOLD CLASSIC AND
TO STRIKEFORCE TATE VERSUS ROUSEY.
WE HAVE A KNOCK DOWN, DRAG OUT MAIN EVENT COMING UP
LATER; AND YOU'LL NEVER BELIEVE WHO I CAUGHT UP
WITH AT THE ARNOLD CLASSIC EXPO.
LET'S GET INTO THE EVENT.
OF COURSE WE KNOW THE MAIN EVENT WAS HEAVENLY
HYPED, PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST HYPED WOMENÕS MMA
EVENT THAT WE'VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME; AND THIS ONE
WAS GOOD FROM BEGINNING TO END EVEN WITH THE PRELIMS.
RYAN COUTURE KICKED IT OFF ON SHOWTIME EXTREME WITH A
RARE TKO VICTORY OF A VERY TOUGH CONOR HEUN OUT OF
10TH PLANET JIU JITSU.
I MEAN YOU HAD EDDIE BRAVO ON ONE SIDE.
YOU HAD RANDY COUTURE ON THE OTHER SIDE.
IT WAS PRETTY COOL STUFF.
YOU KNOW RYAN COUTURE REALLY MADE A BIG JUMP BY
BEATING HUEN LIKE THAT AND IT WAS JUST REALLY GOOD TO SEE.
(CASEY) WELL YOU KNOW WRESTLER VERSUS JIU JITSU RIGHT
THERE AND OF COURSE WRESTLER PREVAILED FOR A
SECOND GENERATION FIGHTER IT WAS GOOD.
IT WAS IMPRESSIVE.
(CYRUS) IT WAS REAL GOOD.
NOW PAT HEALY GOES OVER CARLOS FODOR IN WHAT MANY CONSIDER
AN UPSET BY ARM TRIANGLE.
IT WAS A REALLY NICE SUBMISSION AND PAT HEALY
IT SEEMS LIKE EVERY TIME IT'S AN UPSET FOR HIM.
(CASEY) YEAH (CYRUS) BUT THIS GUY IS GOOD; AND
THEY'RE SAYING HE'S IN THE TITLE HUNT MAN.
(CASEY) YEAH, I THINK IT'S BECAUSE HEALY'S BEEN
AROUND FOR SO LONG.
YOU KNOW HE'S BEEN AROUND FOR YEARS AND YOU NEVER
HEARD ANYTHING FROM HIM AND NOW HE'S MAKING A RISE
AGAIN THAT'S IMPRESSIVE.
(CYRUS) WELL I'M THINKING HE'S GOING TO GO FROM BEING A
GATE KEEPER TO BEING A CONTENDER RIGHT NOW.
THAT'S KIND OF WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.
(CASEY) I HOPE SO.
(CYRUS) YOU KNOW AND HEALY'S GOING TO MEET JZ CAVALCANTE
ON MAY 19TH AT STRIKEFORCE 40 THAT'S SOMETHING TO
LOOK FORWARD TO.
NEXT WAS A BATTLE OF OHIO AS CINCINNATI'S ROGER BOWLING
MET NEWCOMER BRANDON SALING OUT OF CLEVELAND.
CINCINNATI VERSUS CLEVELAND BOTH GUYS TAKE THE FIGHT
ON SHORT NOTICE.
BUT IT'S BOWLING THAT DOMINATES THIS FIGHT.
LET'S GO AND LISTEN TO THE POST FIGHT WHERE BOWLING
TALKS ABOUT THE EFFECTS OF THE TORNADOS ON HIS MINDSET.
(BOWLING) TO ME THAT WAS ON MY MIND A LOT.
MY, NOT MY TOWN, I GREW UP IN A REALLY SMALL TOWN NEVA
OHIO BUT MOSCOW A TOWN RIGHT BEFORE THIS SMALL TOWN
GOT COMPLETELY WIPED OUT.
I WAS ON THE PHONE ALL NIGHT WITH MY MOM AND MY FRIENDS
AND FAMILY AND YOU KNOW A BUNCH OF THEIR HOUSES
AND STUFF GOT TORE UP.
SO JUST YOU KNOW (CYRUS) SOME THINGS MEAN MORE RIGHT IS
THAT BASICALLY WHAT YOUR GETTING AT?
YOU KNOW I MEAN THESE THINGS WEIGH ON YOU I CAN ONLY IMAGINE.
(BOWLING) I MEAN IT DIDN'T AFFECT THE FIGHT AT ALL.
BUT YOU KNOW MY PRAYERS AND STUFF GO OUT TO EVERYBODY
IN MOSCOW AND FELICITY WHERE I'M FROM.
I THINK THERE WAS A FEW FATALITIES, SO YOU KNOW
I JUST, MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH THEM GUYS SO.
(CYRUS) NOW THE STORY ISN'T OVER ON THIS ONE.
HIS OPPONENT BRANDON SALING WE FOUND OUT HAD A VERY DARK
PAST AND IT'S COME OUT THAT HE'S ACTUALLY HAD A
RAPE CHARGE BACK FROM WHEN HE WAS 18 YEARS OLD AND HE
ALSO HAD A DOMESTIC ASSAULT CHARGE AND TO ADD ICING TO
THE CAKE AT THE WEIGH INS AND DURING THE FIGHT YOU
COULD VISIBLY SEE NEO NAZI TATTOOS ON HIS CHEST.
THIS IS CRAZY.
YOU KNOW HOW DID STRIKEFORCE LET THIS GET BY THEM?
(CASEY) MAN THEY'RE GOING TO TAKE SOME HEAT FOR THAT.
YOU KNOW FOR LETTING THAT GO DOWN.
BUT YOU KNOW IT IS WHAT IT IS AND YOU KNOW STRIKEFORCE
WAS JUST TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER A GOOD CARD AND
YOU KNOW AND THE FIGHT WAS A PRETTY GOOD FIGHT.
YOU KNOW, SO YOU KNOW IT IS WHAT IT IS.
(CYRUS) YEAH UNFORTUNATELY IT'S JUST ONE OF THOSE
THINGS, YOU KNOW POLITICALLY CORRECTNESS THAT'S THE
ONLY THING, (CASEY) YEAH, IN THIS DAY AND AGE YOU'VE GOT
TO WATCH.
(CYRUS) YEAH, IT'S TRUE.
NOW FINALLY FINISHING UP THE PRELIMS WITH A BIG WOMEN'S
MMA MATCH UP THE MOST LIKELY DECIDED THE NUMBER
ONE CONTENDER FOR THE 135 POUND TITLE, YOU HAD
SARA KAUFMAN THE FORMER CHAMPION TAKING ON ALEXIS DAVIS.
A VERY WORTHY CONTENDER AND THIS ONE WAS FIGHT OF
THE NIGHT FOR MOST.
I'LL TELL YOU WHAT CASEY IT LOOKED LIKE A ROCKY MOVIE.
MAN THIS WAS CRAZY.
FIRST TWO ROUNDS YOU SAW ALEXIS DAVIS JUST GETTING
HER FACE POUNDED, LOOKED LIKE HAMBURGER MEAT AT THE END.
THIRD ROUND SHE MAKES A COMEBACK, GETS THE TAKEDOWN.
I MEAN SHE MADE IT A CLOSE DECISION.
THIS FIGHT WAS GOOD.
(CASEY) REGARDLESS OF THE HYPE, YOU KNOW THEY
WEREN'T GOING TO LET THE TATE ROUSEY FIGHT OVERSHADOW THEM.
(CYRUS) THAT'S TRUE.
(CASEY) AND YOU KNOW SARA KAUFMAN REALLY PUT HERSELF
IN POSITION TO FIGHT FOR THAT TITLE AGAIN.
YOU KNOW SHE KIND OF FELT THAT SHE WAS IN POSITION
INITIALLY TO FACE MEISHA TATE.
NO QUESTION ABOUT AT THIS POINT, IT WAS BLOODY.
IT WAS NASTY AND IT WAS A GREAT WAR AND THAT WAS
A TESTAMENT TO WOMEN'S MMA.
(CYRUS) THAT'S RIGHT AND YOU KNOW IT WAS GOING TO TAKE
A LOT FOR TATE AND ROUSEY TO FOLLOW THAT UP.
WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENED IN THE MAIN EVENT AND THE REST OF
THE MAIN CARD AFTER THE BREAK AND WE'LL ALSO HEAR FROM
MMA LEGEND DON FRYE AND STRIKEFORCE
LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION GILBERT MELENDEZ AMONG OTHERS LATER
ON IN THE PROGRAM.
BUT FIRST IT'S YOUR MMA INSIDE THE CAGE ARM BAR OF THE WEEK.
OHH! COME ON CASEY!
(COM1) TATE'S GOT TO GET HERSELF MOVING AND GET OUT
OF THERE OR THE REF'S GOING TO STEP IN.
(COM2) ROUSEY GOING TO WORK ON THE CHAMPION FROM HER BACK.
(COM1) LOOKING FOR THE ARM AGAIN.
HERE SHE GOES.
(COM2) AND AGAIN NOW TRANSITIONING TO THE ARM.
(CROWD CHEERING) (COM2) LESS THAN A MINUTE REMAINING IN
THE FIRST ROUND.
RONDA ROUSEY EXTENDING THE ARM.
(COM1) SHE'S GOING TO SQUEEZE HER KNEES A LITTLE BIT.
(COM2) TATE HANGING ON DESPERATELY TRYING TO SURVIVE.
(COM1) OWW!
SHE'S GOING TO BREAK IT.
(COM2) OWW!
IT' OVER, ROUSEY HAS DONE IT.
FIVE PROFESSIONAL FIGHTS, FIVE FIRST ROUND ARM BAR SUBMISSIONS.
RONDA ROUSEY IS THE NEW STRIKEFORCE
WOMEN'S BANTAMWEIGHT CHAMPION.
SHE BACKED UP ALL THE TRASH TALKING, WHAT AN ATHLETE,
WHAT A VICTORY.
(COM1) THAT WAS AN INCREDIBLE FIGHT.

(VOICEOVER) MMA INSIDE THE CAGE BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) WELCOME BACK, SECOND ROUND ACTION AND WE'RE
DIGGING DEEP INTO THE BIG STRIKEFORCE EVENT LAST
WEEKEND IN COLUMBUS OHIO.
THE MAIN CARD WAS FIVE BIG FIGHTS WITH
TITLE IMPLICATIONS, ALL OVER THE PLACE.
FIRST FIGHT ON THE SHOWTIME CARD FEATURED
FORMER MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPION JACARE SOUZA TAKING ON
BRISTOL MARUNDE, MAKING HIS STRIKEFORCE DEBUT.
NOW MARUNDE ACTUALLY HAD SOME GREAT FIGHTS FOR SUPERIOR
CAGE COMBAT MADE HIS JUMP INTO STRIKEFORCE.
BUT JACARE WAS TOO MUCH TO HANDLE.
I MEAN HE CAME OFF THE CAGE LIKE PENANCE DUDE FOR
THE SHOWTIME KICK EXCEPT FOR HE THREW ON THE RNC.
IT WAS CRAZY.
YOU GOT TO BELIEVE THAT JACARE IS RIGHT BACK IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE MIX FOR THE TITLE.
(CASEY) MAN, JACARE HAS ALWAYS BEEN ON ANOTHER LEVEL.
YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
(CYRUS) HE'S TOUGH (CASEY) OF COURSE JIU JITSU; HE'S A
WORLD CHAMPION JIU JITSU GUY.
HE'S FAMOUS YOU KNOW BEFORE HE EVEN CAME TO MMA HE WAS
FAMOUS FOR THAT.
YOU KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE FELT LIKE THAT HE BEAT
LUKE ROCKHOLD EVEN THOUGH IT WAS UNANIMOUS DECISION.
YOU KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE SCORING IT AND WATCHING IT
AT HOME YOU KNOW FELT LIKE HE SHOULD HAVE WON THAT INITIALLY.
JACARE'S THE MAN.
YOU KNOW HE'S GOING TO BE IN STRONG CONTENDER-SHIP.
(CYRUS) OH YEAH, THEY KEPT ON SHOWING ROCKHOLD THROUGH
OUT THE FIGHT.
THEY'RE SAYING THAT, THAT ONE'S PROBABLY GOING TO HAPPEN.
SO THAT WILL BE INTERESTING.
YOU KNOW WE GOT ACTION FROM THE WELTERWEIGHTS NEXT.
AS THE ALWAYS THE CONTROVERSIAL PAUL DALEY
FACED OFF WITH FORMER PRIDE CHAMP KAZUO MISAKI.
NOW DALEY CONTINUES TO LOOK GOOD IN HIS FIGHTS, AND
HE LOOKED GOOD IN THIS ONE.
BUT MISAKI JUST OUTPOINTED HIM IN THIS ONE, TAKING
THE DECISION.
DALEY TAKES ANOTHER LOSS AND IT LOOKS LIKES HE'S THAT
MUCH FURTHER FROM THE TITLE AND FROM A RETURN TO
THE OCTAGON, LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE WANTED TO SEE.
SO THAT'S KIND OF THE LAY OF THE LAND.
(CASEY) WELL LIKE YOU SAY HE IS MAKING GOOD
PERFORMANCES BUT HE'S KIND OF POSITIONING HIMSELF IN MORE
OF THOSE GATEKEEPER TYPE OF POSITION IF HE'S NOT CAREFUL.
YOU KNOW OF COURSE THE LOSS TO WOODLEY WAS SOLID EFFORT
AND THEN MISAKI I MEAN IS A FORMER PRIDE GRAND PRIX
GUY, CHAMPION.
BUT YOU KNOW HE'S GOING TO HAVE TO GET ON THAT
WINNING ROAD IF HE'S GOING TO STEP FORWARD BACK IN THE
BIG SHOW.
(CYRUS) THAT'S TRUE.
NOW ANOTHER MIDDLEWEIGHT SHOWDOWN AS SCOTT HANDS
OF STEEL SMITH RETURNS TO THE DIVISION THAT HE LIKES
AT MIDDLEWEIGHT.
YOU KNOW HE WAS AT WELTERWEIGHT.
HE LOOKED REAL SICKLY.
HE'S BACK TO A BETTER DIVISION AGAINST THE VERY
HUNGARY LUMUMBA SAYERS, 2 AND 0 IN STRIKEFORCE.
SAYERS WAS DOMINANT IN THIS FIGHT.
TAKE A LOOK THERE AND YOU CAN SEE THE GRAPPLING WAS GOOD.
THE STRIKING WAS GOOD.
HE HAD A FEW THINGS TO SAY AFTER THE FIGHT, LET'S TAKE
A LOOK.
(CYRUS) HERE WITH LUMUMBA SAYERS, JUST GOT A BIG
WIN OVER SCOTT SMITH BY FAR THE BIGGEST WIN OF YOUR CAREER.
MAIN FIGHTER SCOTT SMITH'S BEEN THROUGH SOME WARS.
HE'S HAD SOME BIG WINS.
HOW DID IT FEEL TO GET THAT W TODAY?
(SAYERS) IT FELT GREAT YOU KNOW.
WITH GOD THE LEADER IN MY LIFE, YOU KNOW IT'S JUST,
I HAD NO DOUBT THAT I WAS GOING TO GO IN THERE AND
WIN TONIGHT.
I FELT VICTORY AFTER HELL WEEK, YOU KNOW WITH MY COACHES.
WHEN HELL WEEK WAS OVER I FELT LIKE NOBODY COULD STOP ME.
I'M GOING WITH CHRIS GREEN HE'S 240 POUNDS.
HE'S READY FOR CLINCH COVE SO.
(CYRUS) HE LOOKS A LOT LIKE JON JONES TOO.
I KEPT LOOKING UP TO HIM I'M LIKE IS THAT JON JONES
OVER THERE; NO IT'S CHRIS GREEN.
IT LOOKS A LOT LIKE JON JONES TOO.
(SAYER) YEAH, THAT CHRIS THE FUTURE GREEN MAN.
(LAUGHTER) WE JUST GOT TO GET HIM, WE GOT TO GET HIM IN
THE RIGHT POSITION TO GO AHEAD AND KNOCK CLINCH COVE OUT SO.
YOU KNOW IF I CAN GO WITH MY COACH AND REALLY GET IT
IN, ANYBODY MY SIZE THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE A HARD TIME
WITH ME.
(CYRUS) NOT ONLY DOES HE HAVE THE BEARD BUT HE HAS THE
ROCKY MOUNTAINS IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD.
CASEY I KNOW YOU SEE THIS RIGHT NOW.
STEP YOUR GAME UP; YOU'VE GOT TO GET THE BACK OF YOUR
HEAD TOO.
YOU CAN'T JUST DO THE BEARD THAT'S JUST, THAT'S CHILDISH.
YOU'VE GOT TO GO AHEAD AND GET THE WHOLE THING GOING ON.
AM I RIGHT?
(SAYER) YES SIR.
(CYRUS) ABSOLUTELY GO HARD OR GO HOME, GO HARD OR GO HOME.
LUMUMBA SAYERS GOT A BIG W HERE IN COLUMBUS OHIO,
CYRUS FEES, MMA INSIDE THE CAGE.
(CYRUS) SO CASEY THE CHALLENGE HAS BEEN LAID DOWN.
DO YOU THINK MAYBE YOU CAN GET LIKE THE SMOKEY MOUNTAINS
IN THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD, MAYBE STEP YOUR GAME UP
A LITTLE BIT?
(CASEY) NO, NOTHING ON THE BACK OF MY HEAD.
(CYRUS) COME ON.
(CASEY) TAKE ENOUGH SHERDOG NOT FROM YOU.
(CYRUS) CO-MAIN EVENT AT THE JOSH THOMSON RETURNING TO
THE CAGE AFTER A LONG ABSENCE, GOING AGAINST ANOTHER
TOP CONTENDER KJ NOONS.
KJ NOONS ALWAYS BRINGS IT.
THIS ONE HAD BIG TITLE IMPLICATIONS.
NOW THOMSON GRINDS OUT A DECISION.
THE CROWD WAS NOT HAPPY WITH THIS MAN.
THERE WAS A LOT OF BOOING GOING ON.
BUT THOMSON EXECUTED HIS GAME PLAN.
HE DID A LOT OF GROUND N POUND AND IT WAS GOOD.
HOWEVER HE WAS NOT HAPPY WITH HIS PERFORMANCE AND YOU
CAN HEAR THAT WHEN HE TALKED TO MORE AVNOVA.
(INTERVIEWER) JOSH CONGRATULATIONS ON THE WIN.
I KNOW IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME.
YOU'VE HAD TO BATTLE VARIOUS INJURIES WHAT DID YOU
THINK ABOUT YOUR PERFORMANCE TONIGHT?
(JOSH) IT WAS (INTERVIEWER) OKAY ELABORATE?
WHY DO YOU THINK IT WAS THAT BAD?
(JOSH) HOW ELSE DO YOU EXPLAIN IT?
NO REALLY WHAT HAPPENED WAS, I HAVEN'T FOUGHT IN 15 MONTHS.
I TRIED SOMETHING DIFFERENT CAUSE I WAS ALWAYS
GETTING HURT AND THE BOTTOM LINE IS WHEN STARTED GOT
BACK TO MY CAMP I GOT STAPH TWICE IN THE TRAINING CAMP.
I COULDN'T TRAIN.
SO MY CONDITIONING, SO THAT MEANS MY FIGHT
(INTERVIEWER) DO YOU FEEL THAT YOU WERE STILL WORTHY THOUGH
I MEAN YOU PICKED UP THE W AND A LOT OF PEOPLE
ARE ANTICIPATING THE RUBBER MATCH WITH
STRIKEFORCE LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION GILBERT MELENDEZ,
DO YOU FEEL THAT'S NEXT?
(JOSH) I DO FEEL THAT'S NEXT ONLY BECAUSE I'M GOING TO
GO BACK TO THE WAY I USED TO TRAIN.
(CYRUS) NOW IF THOMSON DOES INDEED GET THE FIGHT
WITH MELENDEZ THIS WILL BE A RUBBER MATCH AND IT'S GOING
TO BE FOR THE TITLE.
NOW CASEY EARLY PREDICTION ON THIS FIGHT.
(CASEY) I'M GOING TO GO WITH MELENDEZ.
I'M GOING TO GO WITH THE CHAMPION BECAUSE OF
COURSE THOMSON TOOK THE FIRST FIGHT.
MELENDEZ LOOKED EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY DOMINANT IN
THE RETURN BOUT AND MELENDEZ IS JUST ON A ROLE RIGHT NOW MAN.
HE'S ONE OF THE BEST IN THE WORLD I THINK AND I
PICK MELENDEZ.
I KNOW THOMSON'S A GREAT CHALLENGE.
(CYRUS) WE'RE GOING TO HEAR FROM MELENDEZ IN JUST A
SECOND CASEY.
ACTUALLY BEFORE WE GET INTO THE MAIN EVENT BETWEEN
MEISHA TATE AND RONDA ROUSEY, WE HAPPENED UPON SOME OF
THE BIGGEST NAMES IN MMA AT THE ARNOLD CLASSIC, LET'S
TAKE A LOOK.
THIS IS MMA INSIDE THE CAGE.
(CYRUS) CYRUS FEES MMA INSIDE THE CAGE.
WE'RE HERE AT THE ARNOLD'S CLASSIC HERE AND I'M
STANDING NEXT TO ONE OF THE UFC'S BRIGHTEST
NEW HEAVYWEIGHTS, STEVE BAY MEOCHIVCH, I'M STANDING
NEXT TOO, ONE OF THE NEWEST, BRIGHTEST, BANTAM WEIGHT
NEXT TOO, ONE OF THE NEWEST, BRIGHTEST, BANTAM WEIGHT
OF COURSE THAT WOULD BE SCOTT JORGENSON.
I'M STANDING NEXT TO THE MAN THAT IS PRETTY CLOSE TO
THE TOP OF THE HEAP OF THE HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION HERE
AT STRIKEFORCE, UNDEFEATED DANIEL CORMIER.
HI I'M STANDING NEXT TO UFC DUSTIN POIRIER.
WE TALKED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS OFF CAMERA.
THEY GOT THE SHOW OUT THERE ON TV CALLED CAGED.
(DUSTIN) YOU KNOW I DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO BE EDUCATED
THE WRONG WAY.
SO PEOPLE THAT HAVE NO IDEA WHAT MMA IS AND THEN
THEY WATCH THAT AND SEE THESE GUYS DO THE STUPIDEST
STUFF YOU CAN THINK OF AND DRINK THE DAY BEFORE
THEY'RE FIGHTING AND ALL THAT STUFF, YOU KNOW I DON'T
WANT THEM TO THINK THAT'S WHAT MIXED MARTIAL ARTS IS
BECAUSE IT'S NOT.
(CYRUS) I'M STANDING BUY WITH STRIKEFORCE LIGHT
WEIGHT CHAMPION, GILBERT MELENDEZ.
(GILBERT) YOU KNOW I THINK I'VE DONE IT IN
STRIKEFORCE ALREADY.
YOU KNOW BY BEATING PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THE TOP TEN AT
THE TIME AND BEATING SHINYA AOKI THE NUMBER TWO FIGHTER
IN THE WORLD AT THAT TIME AND THERE'S A POINT NOW
WHERE PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT MIGHT BE THE CASE BUT I
HAVE TO HAVE FAITH THAT THEY'LL COME THROUGH FOR
ME LIKE THEY'VE DONE IN THE PAST.
YOU KNOW I'VE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE MYSELF AS HIGH AS
TOP THREE IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW, BEING IN STRIKEFORCE.
I DON'T SEE WHY I CAN'T BE NUMBER ONE.
(CYRUS) YOU KNOW WHO THIS GUY IS HERE?
HE'S GOT THE COWBOY HAT.
HE'S GOT THE MUSTACHE.
IT'S DON FRYE THE PREDATOR RIGHT HERE AT ARNOLD CLASSIC.
(DON) KNOCK OFF THIS DRUG TESTING BULL.
IF YOU'RE GOING TO DRUG TEST ATHLETES WHO PRODUCE MONEY
OR PRODUCE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THEN DRUG TEST EVERYBODY
ON WELFARE.
YOU KNOW THAT?
AND DRUG TEST AGAINST CONGRESS YOU KNOW?
(CYRUS) THAT'S A GOOD POINT.
(DON) WHAT'S FAIR IS FAIR.
(CYRUS) ABSOLUTELY (DON) BECAUSE THESE ATHLETES
THEY'RE PRODUCING SOMETHING.
SO WHY SHUT DOWN SOMETHING THAT'S GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY.
(CYRUS) ALL RIGHT WELL THERE IT IS MAN.

(VOICEOVER) MMA INSIDE THE CAGE BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) TIME FOR THE THIRD AND FINAL ROUND, TIME
TO IMPRESS THE JUDGES CASEY; AND I KNOW YOU LIKE
THOSE INTERVIEWS DON FRYE MAN LETTING IT ALL HANG OUT.
WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE FULL INTERVIEW ON OUR
YOUTUBE, CRAZY STUFF.
(CASEY) I WAS JEALOUS OF YOU MAN.
BECAUSE I REALLY WANTED TO GET THAT, YOU KNOW I LIKE
TO INTERVIEW THE OLD SCHOOLERS AND STUFF LIKE THAT.
BUT YOU DID HAVE A SPECIAL GIFT FOR ME.
YOU PUT HIM UP TO PRANK CALLING ME AND THAT WAS SO COOL.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
(CYRUS) YEAH, WE SHOULD, WE SHOULD GET THE TRANSCRIPT
FROM THAT BECAUSE THAT WAS INTERESTING STUFF.
(LAUGHTER) THE MAIN EVENT IN COLUMBUS FEATURED TWO OF
THE BIGGEST STARS IN FEMALE MIXED MARTIAL ARTS, YOU
HAD THE BANTAMWEIGHT CHAMPION MEISHA TATE AND THE NUMBER
ONE CONTENDER ROWDY RONDA ROUSEY.
THERE WAS A TON OF TRASH TALK AND WE EVEN SAW SOME
FIREWORKS AT THE WEIGH INS.
HERE YOU CAN SEE THE HEAD BUT THERE FROM ROUSEY, WILD STUFF.
YOU KNOW CASEY HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THIS MUCH PRESS AND
HYPE FOR A WOMEN'S MATCH UP AND WHY DO YOU THINK THERE
WAS SO MUCH THIS TIME.
(CASEY) NEVER SEEN THAT KIND OF HYPE BEFORE.
I MEAN THE CYBORG VERSUS GINA CARANO, THAT WAS A REALLY
BIG BUILD UP.
BUT NOTHING LIKE THIS.
RONDA ROUSEY TRULY KNOWS HOW TO TALK.
SHE'S REALLY PUSHY; YOU KNOW SHE CAME FROM THE SAME
GYM THAT ROWDY RODDY PIPER AND HIS SON COLT TRAIN AT.
(CYRUS) YEAH, (CASEY) SO I'M SURE SHE PICKED UP A
LITTLE BIT OF THAT GAB.
BUT MAN SOMETHING ELSE, AND I THINK SHE'S GOING TO BE
HUGE, HUGE NAME TO PICK UP WOMEN'S MMA IN THE FUTURE.
(CYRUS) I THINK SO TO.
NOW WE EVEN SAW BRYAN CARAWAY, UFC FEATHERWEIGHT AND
MEISHA TATE LONG TIME BOYFRIEND GET INVOLVED
AND WHEN HE RESPONDED TO ROUSEY HE SAID THAT IF HE
EVER FOUGHT HER HE'D KNOCK HER TEETH DOWN HER THROAT AND
THEN NO WOMEN COULD BEAT A MAN AT ANY SPORT.
NOW I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THAT CASEY BUT I DON'T PUT
ANYTHING PAST RONDA ROUSEY.
(CASEY) MAN YOU KNOW FOR SURE POUND FOR POUND, A MAN
WILL ALWAYS HAVE YOU KNOW A STRENGTH ADVANTAGE OVER
WOMEN THAT'S NOT TO SAY, YOU KNOW I TRAINED SOME WITH
TARA LAROSA OVER THE YEARS AND I HAVE SEEN TARA LAROSA
YOU KNOW SUBMIT GUYS IN TRAINING.
YOU KNOW BUT FOR THE MOST PART IT IS AN UPHILL CHALLENGE,
BUT RONDA ROUSEY'S SOMETHING ELSE, SO I DON'T KNOW.
(CYRUS) SHE'S SOMETHING ELSE IS RIGHT.
NOW THE FIGHT WAS TREMENDOUS BOTH GIRLS CAME TO FIGHT.
RONDA GOT SOME KEY TAKEDOWNS AND ALMOST HAD AN ARM BAR EARLY.
TATE ESCAPED, WHICH IS SOMETHING NO OTHER
FIGHTERS BEEN ABLE TO DO AND MOUNTED SOME SUBMISSION
TRIES OF HER OWN.
BUT IN THE END IT WAS A BIG JUDO THROW AND ONE OF
THE SICKEST ARM BARS THAT WE'VE SEEN IN A WHILE.
SHE DIDN'T BREAK THE ARM.
BUT MAN DID SHE HYPER EXTEND THAT THING.
IT WAS, IT WAS NASTY.
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING WHEN YOU WERE WATCHING THAT ARM BAR?
(CASEY) I WAS THINKING THAT MEISHA TATE WANTS TO HOLD
ON TO HER BELT WITH EVERYTHING IN HER SOUL AND SHE DID.
SHE FOUGHT, SHE FOUGHT, SHE FOUGHT AND SHE GOT OUT
ONCE BUT YOU KNOW YOUR ARM CAN ONLY TAKE SO MUCH AND YOU
GOT TO TAP AND YOU'VE GOT TO LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY
AND THAT'S WHAT SHE DID.
(CYRUS) WELL HERE'S WHAT RONDA HAD TO SAY AFTER THE FIGHT.
A FEW THOUGHTS ABOUT BRYAN CARAWAY ACTUALLY,
MEISHA TATE'S BOYFRIEND AND EVEN SOME CHOICE WORDS
FROM HER JUDO COACH, HE'S A LEGEND.
(CASEY) HE'S ONE OF MY FAVORITES.
(CYRUS) JUDO GENE LEBELL TAKE A LOOK.
(INTERVIEWER) WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE
CHAMPIONS PERFORMANCE AS WELL, WAS A FANTASTIC FIRST
ROUND; OBVIOUSLY THE LONGEST FIGHT OF YOUR CAREER, BUT
YOU DID IT AGAIN.
(ROUSEY) YEAH SHE'S MUCH MORE YOU KNOW SAVVY ON THE
GROUND THEN I ANTICIPATED.
BUT YOU KNOW SHE'S GOOD.
SHE'S LEGIT.
BUT I DON'T FEEL THAT BAD ABOUT IT.
(INTERVIEWER) I'M HERE WITH JUDO GENE LIBELL AN
ABSOLUTE LEGEND.
GENE YOU HAVE TO BE EXTREMELY ELATED THAT RONDA
ROUSEY PULLED OFF THIS FIGHT.
SHE SHOWN SOME TREMENDOUS JUDO AND ONCE AGAIN THE ARM
BAR CAME INTO PLAY AND NOW SHE'S A CHAMPION.
JUST TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE FIGHT.
(GENE) I AM SO PROUD OF HER.
YOU KNOW I'M HER UNCLE, UNCLE GENE, AND SHE'S DONE IT.
I SAY GOING PRO WHAT IS SHE GOING TO DO, GET IN ONE
OF THOSE MEDALS FROM THE OLYMPICS?
SHE WOULD HAVE WON THE GOLD IN THE OLYMPICS EASY.
BUT SHE SAYS YOU KNOW THEY WON'T PAY MY RENT FOR ONE MONTH.
NOW HER RENTS PAID FOR A YEAR.
