MMA ITC IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) WELCOME TO MMA INSIDE THE CAGE.
THIS WEEK WE'LL DIG DEEP AND PROFILE WHAT COULD BE THE BEST PRO AM IN THE COUNTRY,
THE PRIDE OF OHIO, THE NAAFS.
ALSO WE'LL LOOK AT SOME OF THE CRAZIEST GIMMICKS IN MMA HISTORY AND TOP IT OFF
WITH THREE WORDS TAG TEAM MMA.
IT'S CRAZY.
IT'S COMING UP IN THE SECOND ROUND.
I'M YOUR HOST CYRUS FEES AND NEXT TO ME CASEY OXENDINE.
CASEY I WAS CALLED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT SAYING THAT YOU WERE CHOKING
PEOPLE OUT AT THE DON VICENTE YBOR HOTEL IN TAMPA FLORIDA.
I'D LOVE TO KNOW THE EXPLANATION BEHIND THAT.
(CASEY) WHEN I TRAVEL I REALLY DO MY BEST TO FIT IN WITH THE LOCALS.
(CYRUS) OKAY, (CYRUS) YEAH, SO WHEN I GOT OFF THE AIRPLANE I NOTICED A BIG BANNER THAT
SAID TAMPA WELCOMES THE RNC.
(CYRUS) THAT'S THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION.
THERE'S AN ELECTION COMING UP.
(CASEY) THERE YOU HAVE IT THOSE BUREAUCRATS MAN.
I WAS SNATCHING THEM UP RIGHT AND LEFT.
(CYRUS) I THINK YOU WERE PADDING YOUR RECORD WITH THOSE REPUBLICANS MAN.
LET'S GET RIGHT INTO THE MMA NEWS FLURRY.
KICKING IT OFF WITH BELLATOR, BANTAMWEIGHT CHAMPION EDUARDO DANTAS, WHO SOME
CONSIDERED TOP FIVE IN THE WORLD, TOOK A FIGHT OUTSIDE THE PROMOTION WITH
SHOOTO BRASIL.
WELL THAT'S MAYBE NOT SUCH A HORRIBLE IDEA BUT HE WAS DISMISSED PROMPTLY, 1
MINUTE AND 40 SECONDS BY TYSON NAM WITH A NASTY KNOCK OUT.
QUESTION IS SHOULD DANTAS EVEN HAVE TAKEN A FIGHT OUTSIDE OF BELLATOR BEING A CHAMPION
AND WHAT'S THIS SAY ABOUT THE BELLATOR COMPANY AS A WHOLE NOW?
ONE OF THEIR CHAMPION IS TARNISHED RIGHT?
(CASEY) YEAH, WELL IT'S NOT GOOD BECAUSE ANYTIME A FIGHTER GOES OUTSIDE OF HIS HOME
THERE AND HE LOSES IN THAT FASHION A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE GOING TO GET THAT IMPRESSION.
(CYRUS) YEAH (CASEY) OF COURSE A FIGHTER CAN LOSE TO ANYBODY AT ANY TIME TYSON'S A
TOUGH OPPONENT.
(CYRUS) I AGREE.
(CASEY) BUT THE THING IS, AS LONG AS YOU KEEP THINGS IN HOUSE YOU DON'T RUN INTO
THAT RISK AND IN THAT CASE BJORN REDNEY I'M SURE HE IS VERY, VERY DISAPPOINTED
AND IT'S SOMETHING IN THE FUTURE THAT BELLATOR NEEDS TO LOOK AT AS FAR AS
SECURING THEIR CHAMPIONS, MAKING SURE THEY STAY AT HOME WITH BELLATOR.
(CYRUS) YEAH, I THINK THEY MAY HAVE HAD A FOPA THERE.
YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
THEY'VE BEEN PRETTY GOOD HERE LATELY.
RONDA ROUSEY IN STRIKEFORCE ALREADY NAMING POSSIBLE OPPONENTS OTHER THAN
CYBORG SANTOS, DUE TO THE CLAIM THAT CYBORG CANNOT HEALTHILY MAKE 135 POUNDS.
CYBORG OF COURSE IS CALLING ROUSEY OUT, SAYING COME UP TO 145 THIS IS WHERE YOU STARTED.
WHO IS RIGHT IN THIS ARGUMENT?
YOU KNOW WHO IS THE ONE THAT'S WRONG IN THIS ARGUMENT?
(CASEY) I DON'T THINK THERE'S RIGHT AND WRONG.
IT'S A MATTER OF WHAT'S GOING TO MAKE THE BEST FIGHT.
PERSONALLY I DON'T SEE CYBORG EVER GETTING BELOW 145 POUNDS.
YOU'VE SEEN HER FIRST HAND.
(CYRUS) IT'D BE TOUGH.
(CASEY) SHE'S VERY, VERY LARGE 145 POUND FIGHTER AND SHE'S HAD A TOUGH TIME MAKING
THAT WEIGHT SOMETIMES.
I THINK WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN IS THAT YOU CAN PUT MEISHA TATE OR MARLOES COENEN IN
WITH HER AND THOSE ARE GOING TO MAKE GOOD FIGHTS.
BUT IF YOU WANT THAT MEGA HIT THAT'S GOING TO PUT THE UFC WOMEN'S DIVISION IN PLACE,
I THINK IT'S GOING TO NEED TO BE THIS CYBORG, ROUSEY FIGHT.
(CYRUS) WHO'S GOING TO WIN THAT ONE?
(CASEY) OH, MAN THAT'S THE THING, THAT'S THE THING.
(LAUGHTER) (CASEY) I THINK THE GENERAL CONSENSUS IS THAT ROUSEY'S GOING TO GET HER
DOWN AND SHE'S GOING TO RIP IT OFF BUT CYBORG IS SUCH A MONSTER, WHO KNOWS.
WHO KNOWS AND THAT'S WHAT MAKES THIS FIGHT (CYRUS) EVERYBODY'S THE WINNER IN
THAT ONE AND FINALLY HISTORY WAS MADE LAST WEEK, BUT NOT NECESSARILY GOOD HISTORY
FOR THE UFC.
UFC 151 WAS THE FIRST EVER CARD CANCELLED COMPLETELY.
DANA WHITE CANCELLED IT AFTER DAN HENDERSON WAS INJURED, COULDN'T MAKE THE FIGHT.
HE TRIED TO PUT CHAEL SONNEN IN THE SPOT BUT CHAMPION JON JONES WOULD NOT TAKE THE FIGHT.
GREG JACKSON WOULD NOT TAKE THE FIGHT.
THERE'S A LOT OF STUFF GOING ON HERE, A LOT OF WORDS ARE GETTING THROWN, DANA
WHITE SAYS THAT GREG JACKSON IS TRYING TO KILL THE SPORT BY HIMSELF.
WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS?
(CASEY) WELL YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT EVERY PERSPECTIVE HERE.
JON JONES AND GREG JACKSON, THEY'RE DOING WHAT THEY CAN TO PROTECT THEIR CHAMPION,
MAKE SURE THAT HE HAS A FAIR SHAKE.
BUT THEN ON THE OTHER SIDE YOU'VE GOT DANA WHITE AND JOE SILVA THEY HAVE DONE,
THEY'VE WORKED TIRELESSLY TO PUT ON A GREAT SHOW AND THIS OF COURSE HINGED UPON A
GREAT MAIN EVENT THAT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
(CYRUS) WELL KNOW WE GOT VITOR BELFORT THOUGH.
HE JUMPS IN THERE, TAKES HIS SPOT.
MACHIDA DIDN'T WANT IT AT THE TIME.
NOW WE'VE GOT VITOR BELFORT.
HE HAS TO LOVE THIS.
THIS IS HIS CHANCE TO REGAIN THE GOLD.
IF YOU GIVE HIM A CHANCE HE'S 13 TO 1 UNDERDOG RIGHT NOW.
(CASEY) HE HAS A CHANCE BUT IT DEPENDS SOLELY ON WHICH VITOR BELFORT SHOWS UP AND
THAT'S BEEN IN THE PAST.
(CYRUS) YEAH, IT SHOULD BE INTERESTING, UFC 151 THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE CALLING IT.
IT'S NOT 52.
MAKE SURE YOU'RE CHECKING OUT UFC DOT COM.
OUR CLIP OF THE WEEK CONTEST WAS HOT AND HEAVY LAST WEEK WITH GUILLOTINE SUPLEXES,
AND CRAZY POST FIGHT TIRADES, AND SOME AMAZING KOS.
BUT THE PRIZE PACK AGE CAN GO ONLY TO ONE FINALIST AND THAT FINALIST IS, GIVE ME
THAT DRUMROLL JEROME.
YOU NEVER GIVE IT TO ME.
IAN STEPHENS THE UNDEFEATED FIGHTER FROM THE 3FC WITH THE AMAZING GUILLOTINE SUPLEX,
OFF THE CAGE.
CHECK OUT 3FCMMA DOT COM FOR MORE INFORMATION.
WELL THIS WEEK 12 MORE FINALISTS ARE GOING FOR THE BIG PRIZE PACKAGE.
CASEY TELL THEM WHAT THEY CAN WIN.
(CASEY) WELL YOU'VE GOT A TRAINING MASK 2.0 TOPPING OFF THE LIST, A GAMMA LABS
SHAKER CUP WITH PRE WORKOUT FORMULA, A COPY OF THE HAMMER ON DVD, AND CLOTHING
FROM CRUCIFIX, BAMF FIGHT GEAR, AND FIGHT CHIX.
(CYRUS) WELL ITS TAG TEAM MMA IN THE SAND PIT NEXT ROUND.
BUT LET'S REVEAL YOUR FIRST FOUR FINALISTS FOR CLIP OF THE WEEK.
(FIGHT & CROWD SOUNDS)
(MUSIC)
(COMMERCIALS)
(MUSIC)
MMA ITC IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) WELCOME BACK, YOU KNOW WE LOOK THROUGH HOURS AND HOURS OF FOOTAGE EACH
WEEK FROM ALL CORNERS OF THE WORLD, AND RARELY DO YOU HAVE TO DO A DOUBLE TAKE BUT I
HAD TO WITH THIS ONE.
I SAW A THREAD ON A POPULAR FORUM.
YOU KNOW ME AND CASEY WE GET DOWN ON THE FORUMS ON SHERDOG AND UNDERGROUND.
WE SAW TAG TEAM MMA.
I WATCHED IT.
IT'S CALLED TRON MMA OR AS IT'S KNOWN IN THE STATES, THRONES MMA, THE ARROWS
STREET FIGHT BASED OUT OF RUSSIA AND THEY'VE INCORPORATED A TAG TEAM ELEMENT.
THIS IS SOMETHING THAT EVERYBODY WOULD LOVE TO SEE, NEVER THOUGHT THAT WE
WOULD SEE IT.
BUT THAT'S NOT THE ONLY REASON WHY THEY'RE UNIQUE.
THEY FIGHT IN A SAND PIT.
(CASEY) YEAH.
(CYRUS) I MEAN IT'S CRAZY STUFF.
(CASEY) WELL WHEN YOU HAVE TONS AND TONS OF MIXED MARTIAL ARTS IN AMERICA TO WATCH,
IT'S KIND OF REFRESHING TO SEE SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT AND THIS IS DIFFERENT.
(CYRUS) A LOT OF DIFFERENT, (CASEY) DEFINITELY DIFFERENT.
THESE GUYS STARTED OUT IN A BIG LIKE COURT WHICH WAS JUST YOU KNOW SAND, LOOKED LIKE
A VOLLEYBALL COURT AND THEN THEY MOVED TO A MORE UPSCALE LIKE RING WITH THE
PRODUCTION LEVEL GOING UP.
SO THIS THING'S REALLY CATCHING ON THERE.
YOU WATCH PRETTY NON-STOP ACTION.
OF COURSE WHEN THEY HIT THE GROUND THERE, THEY'LL SOMETIMES GET SAND IN
THEIR EYES AND THAT'S THE ONLY TIME THEY'LL EVER BREAK.
THEY'LL WIPE THEIR EYES DOWN AND THEY'LL GO BACK TO FIGHTING.
IT REALLY LOOKED, REMINDED ME A WHOLE LOT OF THE GRACIE IN ACTION BEACH FIGHTS THAT
THEY DID YEARS AND YEARS AGO.
(CYRUS) WOW IT'S CRAZY.
WELL LET'S TAKE A LITTLE PIECE OF IT RIGHT NOW. TAKE A LOOK AT IT THIS IS THRONES MMA.
(TRANSLATION NOT AVAILABLE)
(CYRUS) YOU KNOW WATCHING THAT STUFF AND WATCHING THE SAND PIT AND THE TAG TEAM MMA
MAKES ME THINK OF SOME OF THE OTHER GIMMICKS THAT HAVE BEEN THERE OVER THE YEARS IN MMA.
YOU HAD IFL, WHICH WAS TEAM BASED COMBAT.
THEN YOU HAD THE WORLD COMBAT LEAGUE FROM CHUCK NORRIS, A LOT OF STAND UP, A LOT OF
COOL KNOCK OUTS IN THAT ONE.
NOW YOU GO WITH EDDIE BRAVOS COMBAT JIU JITSU AND YOU HAVE X-ARM.
WHICH IS YOUR FAVORITE?
COULD I SEE YOU WATCHING THE OLE' X-ARM FOOTAGE ON THEIR JUST NON-STOP WITH THE X-ARM?
(CASEY) WELL YOU KNOW X-ARM IS NOT BY ANY MEANS MIXED MARTIAL ARTS.
IT'S JUST GRATUITOUS VIOLENCE.
BUT THE OTHER THREE ARE PRETTY LEGIT I FEEL OF COURSE PRODUCED BEN ROTHWELL AND
BIG COUNTRY.
THEN YOU'VE GOT THE WORLD COMBAT LEAGUE THAT PRODUCED STEPHEN THOMPSON AND YOU
KNOW EDDIE BRAVO'S DEAL IS REALLY TO GIVE A MORE MAYBE SPECTATORS VANTAGE POINT
TO GRAPPLING.
ALLOW THE STRIKING AND, (CYRUS) DO YOU THINK THE BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU NEEDS
THAT THOUGH TO BE EXCITING?
OBVIOUSLY YOU ENJOY IT.
(CASEY) THERE'S A NICHE.
(CYRUS) IN IT'S PUREST FORM RIGHT?
(CASEY) THERE'S A NICHE THAT COMPETE IN IT.
IT'S SORT OF LIKE GOLF.
IF YOU REALLY DON'T PARTICIPATE IN GOLF, IN SOME FASHION, YOU'RE NOT GOING
TO BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND AND ENJOY WATCHING THAT PACE OF THE GRAPPLING MAT.
SO THAT, I CAN UNDERSTAND WHERE EDDIE BRAVO'S COMING WITH ADDING THE STRIKES TO IT.
(CYRUS) YEAH, SURE, WELL YOU CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT THRONES MMA AND THE SAND PIT AND
THE TAG TEAM MMA BY CHECKING OUT THEIR WEBSITE, THAT'S THRONESMMA DOT COM AND
YOU NEVER KNOW WHERE YOU MIGHT SEE THEM NEXT.
WELL IT'S ALL ABOUT NAAFS AFTER THE BREAK, COMPLETE WITH A MAIN EVENT FROM A FUTURE
UFC MAIN EVENTER.
BUT NOW IT'S YOUR NEXT FOUR FINALISTS FOR CLIP OF THE WEEK.
(FIGHT & CROWD SOUNDS)
(MUSIC)
(COMMERCIALS)
(MUSIC)
MMA ITC IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY...
(CYRUS) IT'S THIRD ROUND ACTION, MMA INSIDE THE CAGE, TIME TO IMPRESS THE JUDGES.
WELL WITH SUCH A ZUFFA SATURATED MARKETPLACE, IT TAKES A LOT TO STICK OUT
IN THE CROWD.
BUT ONE CLEVELAND BASED MMA SHOW IS DOING THAT AND HAS FOR THE LAST SEVEN YEARS.
THE NAAFS HAS PRODUCED SOME TOP LEVEL TALENT, PUT TOGETHER A TREMENDOUS PRODUCTION AND
IS PUTTING ON MORE SHOWS THAN THE UFC EACH YEAR, WHICH SAYS A LOT.
CASEY WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE NAAFS THAT'S SO GOOD?
(CASEY) WELL THESE GUYS HAVE STAYED EXTREMELY CONSISTENT AND THAT IS KEY EVEN
THOUGH THEY'RE NOT ON A MAJOR NETWORK ACROSS THE WORLD, THEY ARE VERY GRASS ROOTS ORIENTED.
THEY HAVE A GREAT AMATEUR PROGRAM THAT'S RISING.
THEY'VE COUPLED A COUPLE OF TIMES WITH BELLATOR AND THEY REALLY PUT A CONSISTENT
VERY, VERY SOLID PRODUCT TOGETHER AND THEY'VE PRODUCED A LOT OF SOLID
TALENT INCLUDING STIPE MIOCIC.
(CYRUS) OH MAN, HE'S AWESOME.
HE'S ONE OF THE MOST WELL KNOWN ALUMNI, ALONG WITH BRYAN ROGERS FROM THE
BELLATOR ORGANIZATION.
STIPE IS ONE OF THE BRIGHTEST PROSPECTS IN THE UFC HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION.
WE'VE SEEN HIM TAKE OUT THREE UFC HEAVYWEIGHTS IN A ROW, JOEY BELTRAN, PHIL DE
FRIES AND HIS LATEST VICTIM IS SHANE DEL ROSARIO.
HE'S GOT A MAIN EVENT AGAINST STEFAN STRUVE THIS MONTH IN ENGLAND ON FUEL TV.
HE COULD REALLY MAKE A RUN MAN.
IT SEEMS LIKE HE HAS ALL THE TOOLS TO GO AFTER THE TITLE.
HE COULD REALLY GIVE A GOOD FIGHT TO A JUNIOR DOS SANTOS I THINK.
(CASEY) I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HIM VERSUS STEFAN STRUVE BECAUSE THOSE ARE TWO
HUGE MONSTERS WHO ARE GOING TO THROW FOR THE FENCES AND IT'S GOING TO REALLY
ELECTRIFY EUROPE.
(CYRUS) I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE TREMENDOUS.
WELL LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPEN WHEN STIPE MET HARD SWINGING WILLIAM PENN BACK IN APRIL
OF 2011.
WE GOT IT FROM THE NAAFS ARCHIVES.
CHECK IT OUT NAAFS DOT TV FOR MORE INFORMATION. THIS IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE WEEK.
(CROWD SOUNDS & ANNOUNCER)
(COM1) HE GOES FOR THE GLOVE TOUCH; WILLIAM PENN WANTS NONE OF IT.
(COM2) AND PENN IS COMING OUT SWINGING FOR THE CAGES.
(COM1) AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT PENN IS GOING TO GET A LESSON IN IS THAT HE WANTS
TO GET THIS FIGHT TO THE GROUND.
BUT STIPE WRESTLED COLLEGIATELY AT CLEVELAND STATE DIVISION ONE.
HE'S NOT GOING TO BE THE EASIEST GUY TO TAKE DOWN.
(COM2) AND IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN HE WAS AN ALL AMERICAN AT CLEVELAND STATE, DRAFTED AS
A THIRD BASEMAN BY THE MILWAUKEE BREWERS AS WELL.
AGAIN I COULD BE WRONG, I DON'T HAVE THAT INFORMATION IN FRONT OF ME BUT IT GOES
TO TELL YOU WHAT KIND OF ATHLETE THIS GUY IS.
(COM1) ABSOLUTE PURE STUD ATHLETE I MEAN THERE'S PROBABLY NOT A SPORT
HE COULDN'T DO.
(COM2) OH, STIPE GOT CLIPPED THERE AND WE'VE SEEN, (COM1) HERE HE IS WILLIAM PENN IS
NOT AFRAID BUT HERE COMES STIPE RIGHT BACK.
(COM2) NOT AT ALL.
GOOD KNEE THERE BY MIOCIC.
(COM1) THIS IS DEFINITELY THE MOST STIPE'S BEEN TESTED.
(COM2) FOR SURE, FOR SURE AND THERE WAS A LOT OF CRITICISM COMING IN ON WILLIAM
PENN MOSTLY BECAUSE FANS WERE UNAWARE OF HIM.
BUT THAT COULD BE WORKING TO WILLIAMS ADVANTAGE BECAUSE HE DIDN'T KNOW WHO STIPE WAS
TILL COMING INTO THIS FIGHT.
(COM1) SURE.
(FIGHT SOUNDS) (COM1) WELL HE BETTER KEEP THOSE HANDS UP.
(COM2) OH BOY!
THAT COULD BE IT.
(CROWD CHEERING) (COM2) HE IS HURT.
(CROWD CHEERING) (COM1) THAT'S WHAT I SAID YOU BETTER KEEP THOSE HANDS UP.
STIPE'S GOING TO SMELL BLOOD AND THAT'S (COM2) PENN IS STILL COMING TO HIS CREDIT.
HE IS STILL COMING FORWARD.
(CROWD CHEERING) (COM1) OHHHH!
(COM2) AND THAT'S IT.
(CROWD CHEERING) (COM1) THAT IS IT! (CROWD CHEERING) (COM2) WOW! WOW!
LADIES AND GENTLEMENT...
