NOW CASEY YOU'RE BRINGING ONE OF YOUR PRIZE PUPILS MR.
TYLER MELEE MINTON TO SIN CITY AND ONE OF YOUR CLOSEST FRIENDS TIM BOLAP STYLE WILL ALSO
BE ATTENDING.
TALK ABOUT HOW THESE TRYOUTS WORK.
(CASEY) MAN, WE'VE BEEN A PART OF THOSE TRYOUTS FOR ABOUT FIVE YEARS NOW.
WE WENT OUT THERE FOR ULTIMATE FIGHTER SEASON THREE, UP IN BOSTON BJJ, I TOOK TIM
MIOLESTOUT UP THERE AND WE HAD A REALLY GOOD TIME, YOU KNOW IT WAS THE FIRST TIME WE EVER
GOT TO SEE DANA WHITE.
YOU KNOW HE WAS WALKING AROUND WITH EVERYBODY BECAUSE YOU KNOW THERE ARE ONLY A COUPLE
HUNDRED PEOPLE THERE.
SO IT WAS VERY PERSONAL AND IT'S PRETTY SPECTACULAR MAN.
BUT IT'S A LOT OF WORK.
(CYRUS) NOW ULTIMATE FIGHTER NO DOUBT IS A HIT TV SHOW AND HOW THEY PICK THOSE
FIGHTERS IS VERY INTERESTING.
NOW CASEY YOU'VE BEEN CRITICAL OF THE PROCESS A FEW TIMES, YOU KNOW.
WE'VE TALKED AND YOU'VE BEEN PUBLIC ABOUT THIS.
YOU KNOW WE'VE SEEN GUYS WITH LESS THAN STELLAR RECORDS MAKING THE SHOW AND GUYS WITH
BETTER RESUMES GETTING SNUBBED.
HOW DOES THAT SIT WITH YOU?
(CASEY) WELL I WOULDN'T SAY I'M CRITICAL OF THE PROCESS, YOU KNOW BUT IT IS A
CASTING PROCESS.
YOU KNOW IT IS HOLLYWOOD MIXED WITH SOME MIXED MARTIAL ARTS.
YOU DEFINITELY HAVE TO HAVE THE TALENT BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE TALK TO GO ALONG
WITH IT AND IF YOU GOT THE TALK THEN YOU'RE GOING TO WALK THE WALK.

MONTH IN SAO PAULO.

(CASEY) OH, ABSOLUTELY MAN BECAUSE YOU KNOW BRAZIL SHOWED A RESOUNDING SUPPORT
FOR THE DOS SANTOS CAIN VELASQUEZ FIGHT.

[VOICEOVER] MMA INSIDE THE CAGE BROUGHT TO YOU BY ADVANCED SPORTS LABS.
[FIGHT] (CYRUS) WELCOME BACK TO MMA INSIDE THE CAGE THIRD ROUND ACTION AND OUR NEXT
GUEST IS A GUY THAT WE'VE SEEN CLIMB THE RANKS OF STRIKEFORCE'S LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION.
HE'LL MEET GEGARD MOUSASI IN JUST TWO WEEKS IN SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA.
WE'RE TALKING ABOUT OVINCE SAINT PREUX, WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW MR.
OSP, ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU RIGHT HERE ON MMA INSIDE THE CAGE.
YOU'RE FIGHTING MOUSASI PROBABLY THE BIGGEST FIGHT OF YOUR CAREER AND
ACTUALLY NO DOUBT THE BIGGEST FIGHT OF YOUR CAREER.
TALK ABOUT THE FEELING THAT YOU HAVE RIGHT NOW, THE PRESSURE AND MAYBE EVEN A
LITTLE BUTTERFLY ACTION YOU GOT GOING ON GOING INTO THIS FIGHT.
(OVINCE) I MEAN THERE'S DEFINITELY A LOT OF PRESSURE GOING INTO THE FIGHT.
IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS I MEAN, HE'S RANKED ONE OF THE TOP TEN 205 POUNDER.
(CYRUS) OH YEAH.
(OVINCE) IN THE WORLD, SO I MEAN I DEFINITELY HAVE MY HANDS FULL FOR THIS FIGHT.
I MEAN GOING INTO EVERY FIGHT I'M EXTREMELY NERVOUS GOING INTO EVERY FIGHT REGARDLESS
IF I'M SUPPOSE TO WIN THE FIGHT OR IF I'M NOT.
I'M ALWAYS NERVOUS GOING INTO EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY FIGHTS.
THE TIME I GET IN THERE WHEN THE REFEREE SAYS GO IT'S, I'M THINKING THAT IS MY
PLAYING FIELD, AND IN MY PLAYING FIELD I'M GOING TO LET WHAT HAPPEN, HAPPEN.
(CASEY) NOW, OSP, YOU ARE SOMEBODY I'M VERY, VERY FAMILIAR WITH MET BACK IN
THE EARLY 2000'S WHEN I DID MY VERY FIRST SHOW EVER, YOU WERE A PART OF THAT.
YOU FOUGHT ERIC GORDA AND IT WAS YOUR VERY FIRST FIGHT AND THEN SINCE THEN OF COURSE
YOU FOUGHT DANIEL CROCKETT ON ONE OF MY SHOWS.
ONE OF THE BLOODIEST FIGHTS THAT'S EVER BEEN IN THE REGION, AND YOU KNOW YOU WERE
UNDEFEATED AS AN AMATEUR.
YOU STARTED YOUR PRO CAREER AND IT GOT A LITTLE SLOW.
YOU STARTED AS A 0 AND 2 FIGHTER AND YOU KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE GOING IN
YOU KNOW WITH AN 0 AND 2 RECORD MIGHT THINK, MY CAREER'S OVER, YOU KNOW
I REALLY CAN'T MAKE IT IN THIS SPORT.
BUT SOMEHOW YOU STARTED CLIMBING.
YOU STARTED WINNING AND NOW YOU ARE ON A 7, 5 WINNING STREAK AND NOW YOU'RE AT
THE TOP OF YOUR GAME.
LET'S GO BACK A LITTLE BIT AND TELL ME WHAT YOUR MINDSET WAS LIKE AT THAT 0 AND 2 POSITION
AND WHAT GOT YOU IN THE MODE TO TAKE IT WHERE IT IS RIGHT NOW.
(OVINCE) WELL WHEN I FIRST STARTED OFF I REALLY DIDN'T CARE WHAT FOUGHT MY
VERY FIRST FIGHT WAS AGAINST RODNEY WALLACE; AND GOING INTO THE FIGHT I'M THINKING
I'M GOING TO BE FIGHTING THIS STRIKER AND THE DAY OF THE FIGHT I FIND OUT I'M FIGHTING
A THREE TIMES STATE WRESTLING CHAMP.
SO IT WAS ONE OF THEM SITUATIONS KIND OF, YOU KIND OF LIVE AND
LEARN BUT IT WAS DOWN AT ONE POINT AND TIME AND I TOLD MYSELF JUST KEEP ON TRYING
AND I WAS AT ONE POINT AND TIME I THINK MY RECORD WAS UNDER 500.
I WAS THINKING TO MYSELF OKAY I NEED TO GET MY RECORD BUILT UP.
SO I STARTED FIGHTING.
I WANTED TO FIGHT LIKE THESE EASY FIGHTS SO I COULD GET MY RECORD BACK UP.
BUT ONE THING LEAD TO ANOTHER, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY FIGHTS WERE HARD FIGHTS.
I MEAN I FOUGHT GUYS.
I FOUGHT IN THE STRIKEFORCE SHOW BACK IN APRIL 17TH OF 2000-WAS IT 2000?
(CYRUS) 2010 (OVINCE) 2010 AND THAT SUMMER I FOUGHT JASON DAY, ANTWAIN BRITT, BENJI
RADACH, ABONGO HUMPHREY.
NONE OF THOSE FIGHTS RIGHT THERE WERE EASY FIGHTS, A LOT OF PEOPLE, A LOT OF
GUYS I TALK TO THEY WAS LIKE MAN I WOULD HAVE WENT TO, I WOULD HAVE NEVER FOUGHT
THOSE GUYS.
BUT I WAS LIKE IT WAS ONE OF THEM THINGS WHERE I DIDN'T HAVE A CHOICE.
THE FIGHT WAS IN OF ITSELF AND I COULDN'T FIND OTHER FIGHTS.
SO IT WAS EITHER THAT OR DON'T FIGHT AT ALL.
(CYRUS) YOU GOT TO TAKE A HOLD OF IT, THAT'S JUST THE THING WHEN YOU GET THE OPPORTUNITY
TO FIGHT FOR ONE OF THESE TOP PROMOTIONS, YOU CAN'T TURN IT DOWN.
THAT'S CRAZY.
(OVINCE) ESPECIALLY WITH STRIKEFORCE IS ONE THEM DEALS WITH, EVEN WHEN I
FOUGHT WITH STRIKEFORCE THE FIRST TIME IT WAS KIND OF, KIND OF WEARY ABOUT
PUTTING ME ON THE CARD JUST BECAUSE I ACTUALLY HAD LIKE A 4 AND 6, I MEAN A 4 AND
4 RECORD OR 5 AND 4 RECORD AND THEY TOLD ME WELL WE CAN'T PUT YOU, WELL WE MIGHT NOT BE
ABLE TO PUT YOU IN THE CARD BECAUSE OF YOUR RECORD AND THEY LOOKED AT MY LOSS.
THEY WERE LIKE WHAT ARE YOU DOING FIGHTING THESE GUYS EARLY IN YOUR CAREER AND I
WAS LIKE WELL I REALLY DIDN'T CARE.
MY CARDIO HAD PLAYED A BIG THING ABOUT A LOT OF MY FIGHTS.
SO MY CARDIO GOT A LOT BETTER.
I GOT STRONGER.
I GOT FASTER AND IN A WAY IT'S GOOD FOR ME BUT BAD FOR MY OPPONENTS AND IT'S REALLY GOOD
FOR ME CAUSE I CAN IMPOSE MY WILL ON MY OPPONENTS AND I TELL EVERYBODY NO MATTER IF
I WIN OR LOSE YOU'RE GOING TO GET A GOOD FIGHT OUT OF ME.
(CASEY) MAN YOU'RE A FORMER UT ATHLETE, COLLEGE ATHLETE, A VERY GOOD ONE.
YOU KNOW GOING INTO THIS WIN, WHEN YOU GET INTO THE FIGHTS YOU KNOW LIKE YOU MENTIONED
THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF GUYS THAT YOU GO AGAINST THAT ARE TECHNICALLY SUPPOSE TO BE A
SUPERIOR FIGHTER TO YOU.
YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
BUT WHEN YOU GET IN THERE, THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT YOU.
YOU GO IN THERE YOU HAVE A PUSH AND YOU PUSH THROUGH IT.
DO YOU THINK THAT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH YOUR FOOTBALL
BACKGROUND OR YOU KNOW OR IS IT JUST SOMETHING THAT'S INSIDE OF YOU?
(OVINCE) IT'S JUST SOMETHING THAT NATURALLY KIND OF BUILDS INSIDE OF YOU RATHER THAN
PLAYING SPORTS COMES OUT OF YOU MORE.
I WRESTLED IN HIGH SCHOOL; I LEARNED TO PUSH YOURSELF IN WRESTLING.
YOU LEARN TO PUSH YOURSELF IN FOOTBALL.
IT'S ONE OF THEM THINGS THAT'S WHY IT'S ALWAYS GOOD TO I THINK BE AN ATHLETE, CAUSE YOU,
YOU KNOW HOW TO PUSH YOURSELF.
SOME PEOPLE HAVE THE LIMITATIONS OF TRYING TO QUIT OR WHAT
NOT AND I'M, IT'S JUST WITH ME I CAN'T QUIT.
IT JUST LIKE IT'S ONE OF THEM THINGS.
IF I GO OUT, I'M GOING TO GO OUT EITHER IN A VISCOUS LOSS OR A VICIOUS WIN.
I'M NOT GOING TO QUIT IT'S LIKE I CAN'T, EVEN IF I GET MYSELF IN A BAD
POSITION I CAN'T SEE MYSELF QUITTING AT ALL CAUSE THAT'S NOT ME.
I WAS NEVER TAUGHT, I WAS NEVER TAUGHT TO QUIT AND EVERY TIME I DO
SOMETHING I DO IT TO WIN.
(CYRUS) NOW YOU ARE KIND OF IN THIS IMPRESSIVE STABLE OF AFRICAN AMERICAN FIGHTERS IN THE
205 DIVISION THAT IT JUST BLOWING UP RIGHT NOW.
I MEAN REALLY YOU GOT GUYS LIKE RASHAD EVANS, JON JONES, PHIL DAVIS, RAMPAGE
JACKSON AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON, KING MO LAWAL OF STRIKEFORCE.
TALK TO ABOUT BEING A PART OF THIS RESURGENCE IN THE 205 DIVISION CAUSE IT'S NOT REALLY
IN ANY OF THE OTHER DIVISION LIKE IT IS 205.
TALK ABOUT BEING A PART OF THAT STABLE OF FIGHTERS.
(OVINCE) I DIDN'T ACTUALLY THINK ABOUT IT UNTIL YOU SAID IT.
BUT I MEAN WE'VE JUST GOT A LOT OF TALENTED GUYS THAT IT'S JUST ONE OF THEM
THINGS WHERE UH, YOU GET THOSE GUYS LIKE RAMPAGE AND RASHAD EVANS BEEN IN THE GAME FOR A
WHILE, JOHN JONES KIND OF APPEARED IN THE SAME.
I KIND OF APPEARED IN THE SAME.
PHIL DAVIS DID THE SAME THING.
IT'S ONE OF THEM THINGS WHERE A LOT OF THOSE GUYS ARE ATHLETIC TOO.
SO IT'S GOOD WHEN YOU WORK HARD AND WHEN YOU WORK HARD AND ACTUALLY YOU GET
FIGHTERS THAT WORK HARD AND THEN BECOME GOOD FIGHTERS BUT ACTUALLY WHEN YOU HAVE
THE GOOD WORK ETHIC AND AT THE SAME TIME YOU GOT YOUR ATHLETICISM TO BACK IT UP AND STUFF
LIKE THAT.
IT MAKES YOU A PRETTY GOOD FIGHTER.
ACTUALLY A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE GOING TO END UP SCARING, MAYBE SCARED TO FIGHT YOU.
YEAH SO, (CASEY) DO YOU THINK THE 205 DIVISION IS THE MOST ATHLETIC DIVISION.
YOU KNOW YOU WORKED OUT WITH A LOT OF THE BIGGER, HEAVIER HEAVY WEIGHTS ALSO.
DO YOU THINK THAT THE 205ERS ARE (OVINCE) I MEAN IF YOU LOOK AT IT ALL AROUND, MOST
DEFINITELY, CAUSE WITH THE 205 POUNDERS YOU KIND OF PUT THEM IN BETWEEN THE SITUATION
WHERE I MEAN THE 205 POUNDERS YOU CAN PUSH, THEY CAN PUSH THE FIGHT BUT AT THE SAME
TIME THEY DO ATHLETIC THINGS AND THEY IN THAT, THEY KIND OF IN BETWEEN TYPES STATE
OF THE HEAVY WEIGHT AND 185 POUNDER AND STUFF.
BUT THEY I MEAN THE 205 POUNDERS WHEN YOU WATCH THEM FIGHT YOU DON'T
KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.
YOU GET KNOCKED OUT, THE FIGHT CAN GO TO DECISION, A GOOD SUBMISSION, THEN AFTER YOU GET
205 POUNDERS WHO MOVE AROUND LIKE 155 POUNDERS AND THOSE ARE THE TYPE OF GUYS YOU
GET IN TROUBLE WITH CAUSE AFTER A WHILE THEY WEAR YOU DOWN AND JUST RUN
CIRCLES AROUND YOU.
I MEAN FOR INSTANCE YOU COULD SEE A GUY LIKE JOHN JONES, NOT TOO MANY PEOPLE IS DOING
WHAT HE'S DOING.
HE'S DONE STUFF THAT BANTAMWEIGHT, (CYRUS) ONE OF A KIND.
(OVINCE) YEAH, HE'S DOING STUFF THAT BANTAMWEIGHTS DON'T EVEN DO.
SO I MEAN IT'S CRAZY.
(CYRUS) OKAY, NOW REAL QUICK, REAL QUICK FIRE QUESTIONS HERE.
YOU WIN THIS FIGHT YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING TO THE UFC?
REAL QUICK, WHAT DO YOU THINK?
(OVINCE) MIGHT BE GOING, MIGHT NOT I DON'T KNOW.
IT'S TYPICALLY I LEAVE IT UP TO THE PROMOTIONAL OR WHAT NOT.
IF THEY WANT ME SOMEWHERE, THEY'LL PUT ME SOMEWHERE.
(CYRUS) DO YOU THINK YOU'LL HAVE A TITLE FIGHT AFTER THIS?
DO YOU THINK YOU'RE READY FOR A TITLE FIGHT?
(OVINCE) UM, I THINK I SHOULD FIGHT.
I THINK I'LL BE READY FOR A TITLE FIGHT.
I MEAN IF IT'S VACANT RIGHT NOW AND I THINK I'M, IF I END UP WINNING THIS FIGHT I
THINK I SHOULD BE ONE OF THE TOP CONTENDERS WHO IS FIGHTING FOR THE TITLE.
(CYRUS) NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.
NOW LAST QUESTION HERE AFTER THIS FIGHT WHO DO YOU WANT TO FIGHT?
WHO'S IN YOUR HEAD THAT YOU REALLY WOULD LOVE TO GET INTO THE CAGE WITH?
(OVINCE) WELL I DON'T KNOW.
IT JUST, IT'S ONE OF THEM THINGS DURING MY FIGHT I HAD, I MEAN I CALL OUT
GEGARD AND BOBU AND THEY GAVE ME GEGARD THEN.
IT'S ONE OF THEM THINGS THAT NOW I'M JUST LIKE WHO DO I WANT TO FIGHT NEXT AND I'M
LIKE MAN OKAY, IF I'M GOING TO FIGHT, IF I'M FIGHTING THE TOP TEN GUY RIGHT NOW OBVIOUSLY
THE NEXT GUY I'M GOING TO FIGHT IS GOING TO PROBABLY BE A TOP 15.
SO I MEAN WHOEVER'S UP IN THE TOP 15 RANKING ON ME.
(CYRUS) THERE IT IS.
HEY WE TALKED TO KING MO.
KING MO SAID HE'D FIGHT YOU.
HE DID.
(LAUGHTER) (CYRUS) HE SAID HE DIDN'T KNOW IF HE WAS READY BUT HE'LL FIGHT YOU I MEAN
CAUSE YOU KNOW HE HAS A TON OF CONFIDENCE IN.
BUT WE LOOK FORWARD TO IT MAN.
THE EVENTS GOING TO BE GREAT.
YOU GOT MELENDEZ, AND MASVIDAL AND THEN OF COURSE YOURSELF AND THE BIG FIGHT AGAINST
MOUSASI.
CYBORG SANTOS IS GOING TO BE THERE.
