SITMONCHAI.

YOUR REFEREE FOR THIS

>> RON AND DUKE RINGSIDE FOR

GLORY 17 LOS ANGELES, WHAT

AN ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE HERE,

AS WE ARE SET TO KICK OFF

SEMIFINAL NUMBER ONE OF THE

FEATHERWEIGHT CONTENDER

TOURNAMENT.

THIS IS GOING TO BE

EXCITING.

REMEMBER, IN A GLORY

TOURNAMENT SEMIFINAL TWO

KNOCK DOWNS THREE IN A BOUT

WILL EQUAL A TKO OR

KNOCKOUT.

YODKHUMPON SITMONCHAI IN THE

WHITE GLOVES, AND GABRIEL

VARGA IN THE BLACK GLOVES

AND BLACK SHOERTS.

>> VARGA GOES LOW WITH A LOW

KICK, BUT DIDN'T LAND.

>> IT'S GOING TO BE

INTERESTED INTERTOING TO SEE

WHAT HE DOES.

IS HE GOING TO TRY TO PICK

HIM APART FROM THE OUTSIDE,

MEANING VARGA.

>> SITMONCHAI LOVES TO THROW

THOSE STINGING FRONT KICKS.

STILL LEARNING THOUGH, YOU

KNOW, YOU MENTIONED IN HIS

DEBUT HE WAS HESITANT.

HE DIDN'T KNOW HE COULD WARM

UP, SO HE CAME OUT COLD.

WE WILL SEE IF SITMONCHAI

PICKS UP THE PACE HERE

EARLY.

>> DIFFERENT IN THAILAND,

THEY FIGHT A LOT OF THE SAME

VENUES ALL THE TIME WHERE

LOOT OF THE WESTERN FIGHT

RESEARCHERS CONSTANTLY SWIPING

VENUES.

IT'S DIFFERENT WHEN THE THAI

FIGHTERS COME HERE.

IT'S A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

ATMOSPHERE FOR THEM.

>> SITMONCHAI SAID HE WAS

LITTLE STAR STRUCK MAKING

HIS DEBUT AT GLORY 15

ISTANBUL, BUT HE GOT THE WIN

OVER SKEEN.

-- SARKISIAN.

YOU.

>> IT'S A FIGHTING CALL

TOUR.

THEY GREW UP IN KICK

FIGHTING, BUT VARGA GREW UP

IN A FAMILY OF MARTIAL

ARTISTS, SO HE'S BEEN

COMPETING SINCE HE WAS A

SMALL BOY.

>> SITMONCHAI GOT THAT

UPPERCUT THROUGH.

>> I THINK CALIFORNIA DID A

REALLY SMART THING T.

REFEREE ALSO SPEAKS THAI, SO

IT'S GOING TO BE A BIG

ADVANTAGE TO REALLY RUN A

CLEAN FIGHT HERE.

>> STINGING LOW KICK BY

SITMONCHAI, BUT AS VARGA IS

MOVING FORWARD, HE'S TRYING

TO KEEP SITMONCHAI AGAINST

THE ROPES, LANDS A LEFT

HOOK.

SPINNING KICK, MISSED THE

MARK THOUGH FROM VARGA.

HIGH KICK FROM SITMONCHAI.

WE ARE ALREADY SEEING A

QUICKER PACE BY SITMONCHAI

THAN WE SAW IN HIS DEBUT.

AND YOU MINUTE TO GO IN

ROUND NUMBER ONE.

SPINNING HIGH KICK FROM

VARGA.

NOW HE'S GOT SITMONCHAI

STUCK IN THE CORNER.

BODY SHOT FROM VARGA.

COUNTER FROM SITMONCHAI.

>> SITMONCHAI'S CAMP IS

KNOWN FOR THAT.

THEY LET PEOPLE COME IN TO

THEM, AND THEY LOOK FOR THAT

BIG RIGHT HAND AND HOOK.

YOU SAW SITMONCHAI.

THERE IT IS.

HE'S TRYING TO COME BACK

WITH THAT BIG POWER SHOT.

>> SHOT FROM VARGA GOES UP

TOP, KNEE FROM SITMONCHAI,

BUT NOT MUCH ON IT.

FLYING KNEE FROM VARGA,

LOOKED GOOD BUT DIDN'T LAND.

>> IT'S GREAT TO SEE FROM

THE THAI FIGHTERS.

NICE MOVE.

[BELL]

>> GREAT ACTION LET'S GO

BACK TO DUKE IN AND THE

LOCKER CAM.

>> I'M BACKSTAGE IN THE

LOCKER ROOM OF MIRKO "CRO

COP" WHO TAKES ON JARRELL

MILLER.

THIS SPOT IS INTERESTING FOR

TWO REASONS, IT'S THE KICK

BOXING DEBUT OF "CRO COP"

BUT THEY FOUGHT IN 2013.

MIRKO ONE BUT MILLER

BELIEVES IT WAS UNFAIR.

HE'S BEEN VERBALLY

ASSAULTING MIRKO ALL WEEK.

MIRKO TOOK IT IN STRIDE AND

BELIEVES THAT MILLER HAS

BEEN DISRESPECTFUL TO THE

SPORT.

IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO

SEE HOW THAT ANTAGONISM

PLAYS OUT TONIGHT.

>> THANK YOU, LUKE.

HE'S NOT KIDDING.

JARRELL MILLER HAS BROUGHT

THAT BOXING ATTITUDE TO KICK

BOXING.

HE'S TALKED ALL WEEK LOCK.

>> WHAT'S GOING ON THERE IN

THAILAND THEY WEAR THOSE FOR

GOOD LUCK, FOR YOU FANS AT

HOME.

>> GREAT INSIGHT, ROUND

NUMBER TWO BETWEEN

YODKHUMPON SITMONCHAI IN THE

WHITE GLOVES AND GABRIEL

AVARE GACHLT THIS IS

SEMIFINAL NUMBER ONE IN THE

FEATHERWEIGHT CONTENDER

TOURNAMENT.

VERY ENTERTAINING FIRST

ROUND, DUKE.

WHO DID YOU GIVE IT TO?

>> VARGA BY ACTIVITY.

GOOD LOW KICK THERE FROM

SITMONCHAI.

>> WELL, WE SAW IN HIS DEBUT,

SITMONCHAI REALLY PICKED UP

THE PACE IN THE SECOND AND

THIRD ROUND, GOT MORE

COMFORTABLE.

WE'LL SEE IF HE CAN DO THAT

AGAIN TONIGHT.

LOW KICK DELIVERED FROM

SITMONCHAI.

>> YOU CAN SEE THE DEMEANOR

HAS EVEN CHANGED.

THEY CALL THAT IN THAI,

[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

READY TO FIGHT.

>> FIGHTERS EXCHANGE.

QUESTION WITH SITMONCHAI,

THE CLINCH, NO ELBOWS.

THAT SOMETIMES HAMPERS THAI.

UPPERCUT FROM SITMONCHAI GOT

THROUGH.

>> VARGA IS DOING A GOOD JOB

ATTACKING, BUT HE'S GOT TO

BE CAREFUL NOT TO STAND IN

FRONT OF SITMONCHAI, BECAUSE

HE GIVES UP THAT LOW KICK,

OR SITMONCHAI THAT IS THAT

COUNTER RIGHT HE LIKES.

>> APPROACHING THE MID POINT

OF THIS FIGHT.

SCHEDULED FOR THREE

THREE-MINUTE ROUNDS.

AND NICE COMBINATION FROM

SITMONCHAI.

VARGA TO THE GROUND, A

KNOCK-DOWN.

SITMONCHAI'S CORNER BEGGING

HIM TO PUSH THE PACE,

WANTING HIM TO PICK IT UP.

UPPERCUT FROM SITMONCHAI.

EXCHANGE AGAIN, THAT LEFT

HIGH KICK FROM VARGA GETS

THROUGH.

FOLLOWS UP WITH THE KNEE.

>> THE WORKMAN PACE OF VARGA

IS DOING IT RIGHT NOW.

NICE TRICKY RAINBOW KICK

THERE.

>> UNDER A MINUTE TO GO.

SITMONCHAI CAUGHT THAT KICK.

YOU HAVE TO IMMEDIATELY MAKE

A MOVE, CORRECT?

>> YEAH.

YOU CAN HOLD IT OR DROP IT

INSIDE.

YOU CAN USE IT TO SET UP.

>> COMBINATION FROM VARGA,

AND NOW SOME BLOOD STREAMING

OUT OF THE NOSE OF

YODKHUMPON SITMONCHAI.

UNDER 30 TO GO IN ROUND

NUMBER TWO.

JAB FROM VARGA, FOLLOWED UP

WITH A STRAIGHT KICK TO THE

FACE.

SITMONCHAI ON THE CANVAS BUT

IS NOT RULED A KNOCKDOWN.

TEN SECOND TO GO.

GABRIEL VARGA LOOKING VERY

COMFORTABLE IN THIS ONE, ADD

SITMONCHAI IS STRUGGLING.

[BELL]

>> THERE IS THAT HOOK THAT

SITMONCHAI HAS BEEN TRYING

TO SET UP.

>> 10:00 P.M.

TONIGHT EASTERN TIME, "LAST

MAN STANDING", EIGHT MEN

WILL BATTLE IT OUT, AND ONLY

ONE WILL BE CROWNED

CHAMPION.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE

MIDDLEWEIGHT TOURNAMENT THAT

WILL BE.

WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE SECOND

ROUND HIGHLIGHTS, DUKE.

>> YEAH.

HERE HE SET UP THAT NICE

LITTLE CRISPY OVERHAND RIGHT,

PAST THE DOUBLE JAB, CHANGES

OF PACE AND CRACKED HIM WITH

THE CROSS.

THERE IS CREW DOM, ONE OF

THE BEST MUY THAI TRAINERS,

HE KNOWS THE LAST ROUND HE

NEEDS TO WORK HARD.

[BELL]

>> THIRD AND FINAL ROUND.

SEMIFINAL NUMBER ONE,

GABRIEL VARGA AND YODKHUMPON

SITMONCHAI.

THE WINNER WILL MOVE ONTO

THE CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT, AND

IT'S ALWAYS INTERESTING TO.

THE LONGER THESE FIGHTS GO,

THE CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT.

BAD BRUISES ON THE THIGH OF

GABRIEL VARGA, THE LEFT LEG

AS SITMONCHAI CONTINUES TO

CHOP AT HIM.

>> FOR YOU FANS AT HOME,

THAT'S NOTHING.

A MAN SWINGING A BASEBALL

BAT HARD AS THEY CAN AT YOU,

THAT'S WHAT IT'S LIKE

GETTING CAUGHT WITH THAT

SHIN KICK.

>> HE HASN'T HAD A LOT OF

SUCCESS WITH IT.

HE KEEPS BREAKING THINGS UP

AND KEEPING SITMONCHAI AT

BAY.

>> EXACTLY.

THAT'S WHY HE'S DOING IT.

THOSE DIFFERENT MOVES ARE

GOING TO KEEP THE TECHNICAL

THAI FIGHTER LIKE SITMONCHAI

A LITTLE OFF GUARD AND WON'T

LET HIM GET HIS GAME GOING.

>> THE JAB NOW LANDING FOR

GABRIEL VARGA.

CHECKING OUT THESE TOTAL

STRIKES FOR THIS FIRST ROUND

FIGHT.

>> THE PERCENTAGES OF

SITMONCHAI'S FAVOR, BUT AS

WE SEE HERE VARGA IS REALLY

PUTTING IT OUT THERE.

>> 29-YEAR-OLD GABRIEL VARGA

CAME IN WITH A 23-2 RECORD.

HE WAS THE FAVORITE TO WIN

THE FEATHERWEIGHT CONTENDER

TOURNAMENT.

>> HE HAD A GREAT PROPOSALS

AT GLORY IN CHICAGO AGAINST

JOSE.

HE DID A LOT OF GREAT THINGS

IN THAT FIGHT.

>> HIGH KICK FROM VARGA.

HE BRINGS KNOCKOUT POWER,

TOO, PUSHING SITMONCHAI BACK

UP AGAINST THE ROPES.

>> THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE TO

DO AGAINST SOMEONE LIKE

SITMONCHAI.

YOU HAVE TO USE YOUR OFFENSE

AND DEFENSE.

KEEPING IT DEFENSIVE KEEPS

THEM FROM HITTING YOU HARD.

>> UNDER A MINUTE TO GO,

SEMIFINAL NUMBER ONE.

>> THAT WAS A BEAUTIFUL JUMP

AND SWITCH KICK.

I WAS JUST TALKING THE OTHER

DAY ABOUT THAT KICK WITH JOE

ROGAN.

>> JOE WILL BE IN THE HOUSE

TONIGHT.

>> YEAH, HE'S A HUGE FAN OF

GLORY.

HE HAD A GREAT JOE ROGAN

PODCAST.

LOT OF IF YOU STUFF.

>> 30 SECONDS TO GO, ROUND

THREE.

CONTROL BY GABRIEL VARGA,

THE CANADIAN.

NUMBER FIVE RANKED

FEATHERWEIGHT IN GLORY.

AND AGAIN, IT SEEMS THAT

SITMONCHAI STILL JUST HASN'T

ADAPTED TO THOSE KICK BOXING

RULES YET.

LITTLE HESITANT.

[BELL]

>> THAT'S GOING TO DO IT FOR

THIS SEMIFINAL NUMBER ONE

BETWEEN VARGA AND

>> WELCOME BACK TO GLORY 17

LOS ANGELES AS WE CHECK OUT

THE FINAL STATS.

>> AGAIN, THE MAIN STAT WAS

THE PERCENTAGE LANDED AND

THE VOLUME OF VARGA.

THAT'S WHAT WON THE FIGHT

FOR HIM, I BELIEVE.

>> REALLY ALL VARGA IN THIS

ONE.

HIGHLIGHTS BROUGHT TO YOU BY

300, RISE OF AN EMPIRE.

>> NICE OVERHAND RIGHT,

PRECISION STRIKING WITH HIS

HAND, VARGA WAS VERY

ACCURATE.

THERE THE UPPERCUT WENT BACK

TO THE BODY, HE DID THE BODY

HEAD, BODY HEAD.

NICE WORK.

>> LET'S MAKE IT OFFICIAL

AND GO BACK INTO THE GLORY

RING AND TIM HUGHES.

>> LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

AFTER THREE ROUNDS, WE SEND

TO IT THE JUDGES' SCORECARD,

AND THEY GIVE US BACK A

UNANIMOUS DECISION.

ALL THREE JUDGES SCORE THE

BOUT THE SAME, 30-27 FOR

YOUR WINNER, WHO NOW

ADVANCES TO THE TOURNAMENT

FINAL, GABRIELLE GABRIEL

VARGA!

>> SO VARGA HAS PUNCHED HIS

TICKET INTO THE

FEATHERWEIGHT CONTENDER

FINAL HE WILL RETURN TO THE

LOCKER ROOM TO WAIT TO FIND

OUT WHO HIS OPPONENT LATER

TONIGHT WILL BE, AND THAT

OPPONENT WILL BE EITHER ONE

OF THESE TWO MEN IN THE

SECOND SEMIFINAL, THE

CONTENDER TOURNAMENT, EITHER

CALIFORNIA'S SHANE OBLONSKY

OR BRAZIL'S MARCUS VINICIUS.

SEMIFINAL NUMBER TWO COMING

UP AND INTRODUCE OUR FIGHTS,

HERE IS TIM HUGHES.

>> TWO HUNGRY YOUNG FIGHTERS

FILL OUT THE OTHER HALF OF

THE BRACKET FROM THE BAHIA

REGION OF BRAZIL AND THE

STREETS OF SO CAL, MARCUS

VINICIUS AND SHANE OBLONSKY.

>> I'M REALLY EXCITED TO

FIGHT IN THE TOURNAMENT.

LIKE, I'VE NEVER DONE IT.

I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO.

IT'S SO COOL, AND THE FACT

I'M GOING TO BE IN A

FOUR-MAN TOURNAMENT, JUST

GETTING INTO IT, I'M REALLY

EXCITED.

>> [SPEAKING IN FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

>> I'M HYPED.

I CAN'T WAIT.

I'M SERIOUSLY SO EXCITED.

I CAN'T WAIT.

THIS IS GOING TO BE FUN.

>> A MAN WHO KNOWS ALL ABOUT

FIGHTING IN TOURNAMENTS,

BRAZIL'S MARCUS VINICIUS.

GLORY 17 ROLLS ON.

BACK AT THE FRUM -- FORUM IN

LOS ANGELES, WE ARE SET FOR

OUR FEATHERWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

CONTENDER SEMIFINAL NUMBER

TWO, AND HERE'S THE TALE OF

THE TAPE.

>> ONE THING THAT STANDS OUT,

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THAT

HEIGHT AND REACH ADVANTAGE.

HE'S GOING TO USE HIS KNEES

TO DOMINATE THIS FIGHT, IF

HE CAN.

>> INTRODUCING TO MY RIGHT

OUT OF THE BLACK CORNER, HIS

PROFESSIONAL RECORD, NINE

WINS, TWO LOSSES, ONE DRAW,

FOUR OF THOSE WINS BY WAY OF

KNOCKOUT.

AT 5'5", 1.6 METERS, HE

WEIGHED IN AT 141 POUNDS,

64.1 KILOS, FIGHTING OUT OF

BRAZIL, MARCUS VINICIUS!

HIS OPPONENT STANDING TO MY

LEFT OUT OF THE WHITE CORNER

TRAINED IN BOXING AND MUY

THAI, HIS YOUNG PROFESSIONAL

RECORD EIGHT WINS WITH TWO

LOSSES, THREE OF THOSE WINS

BY KNOCKOUT, HE WILL MAKE

HIS GLORY DEBUT TONIGHT.

STANDING 6'EVEN, 1.83 METERS,

HE WEIGHED IN 165 POUNDS,

65.8 KILOS, FIGHTING OUT OF

THE USA, HERE IS HURRICANE

SHANE OBLONSKY!

>>.

JOSH: OUT OF THE CORNERS,

LET'S GO.

>> THANK YOU.

MARCUS.

GOOD.

GO BACK TO YOUR CORNER.

FIGHT!

>> FIGHTERS TOUCH GLOVES,

AND WE ARE SET FOR THIS

SEMIFINAL NUMBER TWO.

MARCUS VINICIUS IN THE BLACK

GLOVES AND SHANE OBLONSKY IN

THE WHITE GLOVES.

MARCUS ROW SALES IS THE

THIRD MAN IN THE RING.

BIG SHOT OVERHAND RIGHT MISS

FROM OBLONSKY.

VINICIUS LOVES TO TURN

FIGHTS INTO A BRAWL.

LOOKS LIKE OBLONSKY IS

WILLING TO DO THAT.

KNEE FROM OBLONSKY, COUNSEL

TERD BY VINICIUS.

SERIOUS PACE TO START OFF

THIS FIGHT.

>> CAN YOU SEE AGAIN

OBLONSKY WANTS TO COME OUT

WITH THOSE KNEES, USE HIS

HEIGHT.

VINICIUS IS USING A GOOD JOB

COMING OVER THE TOMORROW.

YOU CAN'T GET CAUGHT ON THE

CHIN WITH THE SLIGHT GRAB

AND GET PULLED INTO A KNEE.

YOU'LL GET K.O.ED.

>> COMBINATION FROM OBLONSKY,

THE FANS HERE IN CALIFORNIA

CHEERING FOR OBLONSKY.

VINICIUS SLIPPED.

AND IT IS RULED A KNOCKDOWN.

>> LOOKS LIKE HE MIGHT HAVE

SLIPPED.

>> BUT HE IS RULED A

KNOCKDOWN.

REMEMBER, IN GLORY

TOURNAMENT SEMIFINAL TWO

KNOCKDOWNS IN A ROUND THREE

IN A BOUT WILL EQUAL A TKO

OR K.O.

>> I THOUGHT THAT WAS A SLIP

MYSELF.

SORT OF A PUNCH BEHIND THE

HEAD THAT PUSHED HIM.

WE WILL HAVE TO TAKE A LOOK

IF WE GO BETWEEN ROUNDS

HERE.

IF I WERE OBLONSKY, I WOULD

LOOK TO GET HIM OUT THEREOF

QUICK, TAKE AS LITTLE

ADVANTAGE AS POSSIBLE, TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF THE CALL AND

FOR FOR A KNOCKDOWN.

>> BE A HUGE KEY FOR

OBLONSKY IF HE CAN GET OUT

OF THIS SEMIFINAL NUMBER TWO

IN THE FIRST ROUND.

REMEMBER, GABRIEL VARGA WON

A UNANIMOUS DECISION, SO

HE'S ALREADY FOUGHT FOR NINE

MINUTES.

JAB FROM VINICIUS, CONTINUES

TO MOVE.

OBLONSKY LOOKS LIKE HE

REALLY WANTS TO USE THAT

REACH.

SEPARATES, AND WE ARE BACK

AT ACTION.

29% K.O. RATIO ONLY FOR

VINICIUS, BUT HE'S -- YOU

SEE OBLONSKY COMING FORWARD.

RANKED NUMBER NINE IN THE

GLORY FEATHERWEIGHT DIVISION,

OBLONSKY.

>> VERY FIZZ CAT FIGHTER.

HE'S PUSHED ALL HIS BODY

WEIGHT BEHIND EVERY STRIKE.

THE PROBLEM IS THE GAS YOU

BURN OUT OF THAT TANK.

>> HE'S SWINGING HARD NOW.

NOT LANDING TOO MANY SHOTS.

HE DID LAND A HOOK RIGHT

THERE TO THE CHIN OF

OBLONSKY.

ANOTHER HOOK FOR VINICIUS.

WE ARE UNDER 20 SECONDS TO

GO HERE IN ROUND NUMBER ONE.

VINICIUS RANKED NUMBER EIGHT

IN THE DIVISION, AND

OBLONSKY NUMBER NINE.

GREAT ACTION HERE IN ROUND

NUMBER ONE.

[BELL]

>> TONIGHT'S LOCKER ROOM CAM

IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY GOLD

BOND POWDER STRAY.

-- SPRAY.

>> I'M HERE BACKSTAGE IN

JARRELL MILLER'S LOCKER

ROOM.

MILLER TAKES ON "CRO COP" IN

TONIGHT'S VENT.

JARRELL WHEN YOU LOST TO

MIRKO FIRST TIME DID YOU

THINK WOULD YOU FACE HIM

AGAIN?

>> NO, I THOUGHT THE OLD GUY

WOULD NEVER FIGHT AGAIN WITH

A KILLER LIKE ME, BUT I

GUESS HE'S GOT SOMETHING TO

PROVE, SO I'LL KNOCK HIS

LIGHTS OUT.

>> WHEN YOU FOUND OUT WERE

YOU GOING TO REMATCH HIM,

HOW DID YOU FEEL?

>> I FELT AGO STATIC ABOUT

IT LIKE I'M READY TO GO.

>> WHY WAS TRASH TALK SUCH A

BIG COMPONENT OF THE

PRE-FIGHT?

IT WAS A LOT OF ANIMOSITY

FROM YOUR SIDE.

>> THE WHOLE TRASH TALK

STUFF IS PART OF THE FIGHT

GAME.

THAT'S WHY GLORY WANTS

MEADE.

I TALK [BLEEP].

"CRO COP" IS USED TO WHAT

HE'S USED TO.

HE'S GOING TO GET USED TO MY

PUCHTS SOON ENOUGH.

IT COMES WITH THE TERRITORY,

AND IT'S PART OF THE SPORT.

>> BEST OF LUCK.

GUYS, BACK TO YOU.

>> LUKE, THANK YOU.

JARRELL MILLER BROUGHT THAT

BOXING MENTALITY HERE TO

GLORY KICK BOXING FOR SURE.

ROUND NUMBER TWO IN THIS

SEMIFINAL, MARCUS VINICIUS

IN THE BLACK GLOVES AND

SHANE OBLONSKY IN THE WHILE.

YOU MENTIONED OBLONSKY CAME

INTO THIS FIGHT.

HE WEIGHED IN HEAVY.

HE HAS A CONDITION WHERE THE

DOCTOR WOULDN'T LET HILL

LOSE MORE WEIGHT SO A PERSON

OF HIS WEIGHTS WILL GO TO

THE COMMISSION AND ALSO A

PERCENTAGE TO HIS OPPONENT.

VINICIUS LANDS A COUPLE OF

SOLID SHOTS EARLY IN THIS

ROUND.

SHANE OBLONSKY ALREADY HAS

ONE KNOCKDOWN.

IN A SEMIFINAL, YOU NEED

THREE.

THAT WILL TERMINATE THE

FIGHT.

>> VINICIUS IS DOING A GREAT

JOB OF USING THAT OVERAND

RIFLT HE'S SETTING UP THE

UPPERCUT, COMING UP OVER THE

GUARD.

HE'S LOOKING FOR A SLIP JAM

THERE.

>> THERE IS SOME JAB AND

REACH ADVANTAGE ON THE PLAY

FROM OBLONSKY.

VINICIUS IS TRACKING FORWARD,

PICKING UP THE PACE.

RIGHT HOOK GETS THROUGH FROM

VINICIUS.

>> NICE STIFF JAB AT THE END

OF THAT COMBO, TOO.

>> NOW THOUGH BERLUSCONI

KNOCKED VINICIUS DOWN, IT

DIDN'T SEEM TO DO MUCH

DAMAGE TO HIM.

HE SHOOK IT OFF QUICKLY.

VINICIUS AND BERLUSCONI

STUCK IN THE CORNER, TEEING

UP.

KNEE JERK FROM BERLUSCONI.

>> VARGAS IS PROBABLY IN THE

BACK GOING LET'S BEAT EFE

OTHER UP.

I WANT AN EASY FIGHT.

>> VINICIUS MISSING WITH

SOME DEVASTATING HOOKS,

ESPECIALLY THAT LEFT HOOK.

ONE MINUTE IN ROUND NUMBER

TWO.

FIGHTERS TOUCH.

AND THE STRIKE BY ROUND,

VERY CLOSE TO THAT BAR.

BOTH FIGHTERS VERY ACTIVE.

>> VERY ENTERTAINING FIFLT

THEY'RE BOTH GOING FOR IT.

THERE.

>> LOOK AT VINICIUS NOW.

LOW KICK FROM OBLONSKY.

SUPERMAN PUNCH FROM OBLONSKY,

BUT NOT MUCH BEHIND IT.

OBLONSKY THE DARK HORSE OF

THE TOURNAMENT, MAKING HIS

GLORY DEBUT AGAINST THE

VETERAN, MARCUS VINICIUS,

WHO HAS ONE TOURNAMENT IN

HIS NATIVE BRAZIL BEFORE.

[BELL]

>> WELL, LET'S GO BACK TO

ROUND NUMBER ONE AND THE

KNOCKDOWN BY SHANE OBLONSKY,

AND WE'LL SEE EXACTLY WHAT

HAPPENED.

>> AND, YEAH, THAT WAS

ALMOST THE BACK.

HE GOT UP RIGHT AWAY.

WHEN THEY GET UP RIGHT AWAY,

THAT WAS NOT A HIT THAT

CAUSED DAMAGE, AND AGAIN,

YOU'VE GOT TO REMEMBER,

THEY'RE BAREFOOTED.

THERE ARE NO REPLAYS.

RIGHT NOW, I SEE THAT

OBLONSKY IS WINNING BY

WINNING THE FIRST ROUND BY

TWO POINTS, AND I THINK

VINICIUS WON THE LAST ROUND.

SO, YOU NEED VINICIUS TO WIN

THIS LAST ROUND TO TIE IT

UP.

SO WE MIGHT BE GOING TO

SUDDEN VICTORY.

>> ON A DECISION LIKE THAT,

IT IS REALLY UP TO THE REF.

MARCOS ROW SALES CALLED IT A

KNOCKDOWN.

YOU CAN'T ARGUE WITH HIM.

[BELL]

>> THIRD AND FINAL ROUND OF

THIS FEATHERWEIGHT CONTENDERER

TOURNAMENT SEMIFINAL, SHANE

OBLONSKY IN THE WHITE GLOVES

AND MARCUS VINICIUS IN THE

BLACK, LOOKING TO MOVE ONTO

THE CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND AND

MEET GABRIEL VARGA.

>> RIGHT NOW, I SAY IT ALL

THE TIME, NO DUTS, -- GUTS,

NO GLORY.

HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?

THE GUY WHO WANTS IT BAD

WILL WIN THIS FIGHT AND

PUNCH HIS WAY TO THE SPINAL.

>> VINICIUS HAS FLIPPED TO

FAST FORWARD.

HE IS PUSHING THE FACE.

KNEE FROM OBLONSKY.

KICK BLOCKED BY VINICIUS.

AGAIN, YOU DON'T WANT TO GAS

OUT IN THIS FIRST SEMIFINAL,

KNOWING THAT YOU HAVE A

SECOND FIGHT COMING UP

TONIGHT.

>> WHEN VINICIUS NEEDS TO BE

FIRST IF HE'S GOING TO GET

OFF HERE, HE CAN'T POWER

SHOT.

HE NEEDS TO GET GOING.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE AGGRESSIVE

AND WIN IT ON THE POINTS FOR

SURE.

IF HE'S WAITING FOR THAT

KNOCKOUT SHOT, HE'S GOING TO

GET PICKED APART.

>> OBLONSKY IS GETTING THE

JAB THROUGH.

VINICIUS GETTING SOME

STRAIGHT TO THE FACE AND

LANDING THEM.

KICK TO THE BODY FROM

OBLONSKY.

ZUCK IN THE CORNER.

LEFT HOOK LANDS FOR

VINICIUS.

CRAZY CASE HERE IN THE THIRD

AND FINAL ROUND.

63 PUNCHES LANDED BY MARCUS

VINICIUS.

NO KICKS OR KNEES.

THAT'S ALMOST SHOCKING.

>> NO, HE'S TRYING TO DO ALL

THE WORK WITH HIS HANDS.

I THINK HIS HANDS WOULD LAND

BETTER IF HE WOULD SET IT UP

WITH A FEW KICKS.

HE'S GOT TO MAKE HIM THINK

ABOUT MORE THAN JUST HIS TWO

PUNCHES.

>> THINKING THERE WAS A GOOD

CHANCE OF AN EARLY FINISH

BUT WE WERE WRONG.

WE ARE UNDER ONE MINUTE TO

GO IN ROUND THREE.

OBLONSKY GETTING THOSE KNEES

THROUGH AGAIN, THE HIGH

OF THE HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS

VERY ENTERTAINING SEMIFINAL

FIGHT.

>> NICE UPPERCUT, GOOD HOOK,

BUT THAT OVERHAND CAUGHT HIM

BY THE EAR THAT WOBBLED HIM.

ROCKED HIM IN THE FIRST

ROUND.

THEN HE CAME BACK.

RIGHT THERE WITH THAT

CHOPPING RIGHT, THE HEIGHT

WAS THE ADVANTAGE THERE,

USING HIS SUPERIOR HEIGHT TO

PUNCH DOWN WAS CREATING A

LOT OF POWER.

>> BACK TO THE GLORY RING

FOR THE OFFICIAL DECISION.

>> ALL RIGHT, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, YOU WATCHED IT AS

IT HAPPENED.

AFTER THREE ROUNDS, WEAPON

SUPER BOWL OF STRIKING ARTS.

>> WHAT AN INCREDIBLE

LINEUP.

WHEN WE SAY TOP, WE GOT TO

SAY TOP CONTENDER.

ARTEM LEVIN DEFINITELY THE

FAVORITE IN THE TOURNAMENT,

BUT AS WELL, WE ARE BRINGING

BACK MELVIN MANHOEF.

WE ARE GOING TO LET HIM OFF

THE CHAIN TONIGHT, BUT ALSO

WE GOT THE HOMETOWN HERO,

THE CINDERELLA STORY FROM

LAST YEAR, JOE SCHILLING

LOOKING TO WIN HIS SECOND

TOURNAMENT.

>> WELL, IF MAPTH ISN'T YOUR

BEST SUBJECT, LET ME BREAK

IT DOWN FOR YOU.

LIGHTWEIGHT DIVISION, WHEN

THAT MAN THE MACHINE, ANDY

HE WANTS TO GET BACK TO

FORM.

HE WAS AT THE TOP OF HIS

FORM BEATING TWO OF THE BEST

IN NEW YORK IN NOVEMBER, BUT

HE'S GOT A REALLY TOUGH

FIGHT AHEAD OF HIM.

KY HOLLENBECK IS NO PUSH

OVER.

HE'S A DANGEROUS, SCRAPPY

FIGHTER.

HOLLENBECK ENDS OVER HALF

HIS BOUTS BY WAY OF KNOCKOUT

T. WINNER SETS HIMSELF UP

PERFECTLY FOR THE NEXT TITLE

SHOT.

THIS IS GLORY 17.

AND AN ARENA THAT'S SEEN

HISTORIC BATTLES ANOTHER

BACK-TO-BACK KNOCKOUTS, WITH

GIORGIO AND ROBIN, BUT THEN

HE COULDN'T BUT OFF THAT

VICTORY, AS HE WAS SURPRISED

AND SHOCKED BY KYRIA AT

GLORY 14.

HE SAID IT WAS A VERY

EXPENSIVE LESSON TO LEARN.

WELL, LOOKS LIKE HE'S PUT

THAT DEFEAT BEHIND HIM

QUICKLY AS WE CHECK OUT THE

NOKTDS.

DID NOT AFFECT HIM IN HIS

DEBUT, REALLY TAKING IT TO

VINICIUS AND EARNING THAT

FIRST VICTORY.

>> VERY AGGRESSIVE.

THE BIG THING HERE, HE'S A

VERY, VERY BIG

FEATHERWEIGHT.

HE'S A FEATHERWEIGHT THAT

USES HIS SIZE, NOT JUST

TECHNICAL AND STANDS ON THE

OUTSIDE WITH HIS REACH.

HE'S PUTTING HIS WEIGHT ON

YOU, HEAVY PUNCHES, PUTTING

HIS BODY ON YOU WITH THOSE

KNEES, AND YOU ALWAYS GOT TO

WORK HARD WITH HIM.

THAT'S GOING TO BE THE TALE.

CAN VARGA DEAL WITH THE SIZE

OF OBLONSKY?

HE TOOK A BEAT FWHG THAT

FIRST ROUND.

WILL THAT BE A FACTOR IN

THIS CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT?

>> I THINK HE'S ADJUSTED HIS

FIGHT STYLE.

IN THIS FIGHT HE'S HITTING

AND MOVING.

I DON'T THINK HE WANTS TO BE

IN FRONT OF THE BIG POWER OF

OBLONSKY.

>> OBLONSKY IS A BIG,

POWERFUL FIGHTER.

MUY THAI BOXING BACKROUND.

>> IF HE WERE A CHEF, HE

DOESN'T MIND GETTING SOME

SAUCE ON HIS APRON.

THREE KNOCKDOWNS IN THE

BOUT.

BIG FRONT KICK, LANDS FROM

FIGHT WILL TERMINATE THE

MATCH.

HERE COMES OBLONSKY BACK.

KNEE AND A COMBINATION.

BLOCKED BY VARGA.

ADVANTAGE AND LOOKS LIKE HE

ROCKED VARGA A LITTLE BIT.

YOU CAN'T STAND IN FRONT OF

OBLONSKY, OR IT'S GOING TO

BE ALL OVER.

PACE.

ACTING LIKE THEY HAVEN'T

ALREADY FOUGHT NINE MINUTES

SHANE OBLONSKY IN THE BLUE

SHORTS AND SPINNING BACK

KICK BY GABRIEL VARGA PUSHES

OBLONSKY BACK.

VARGA HAS HAD A LOT OF

SUCCESS WITH THE SPINNING

BACK KICK AND THOSE FRONT

KICKS.

>> I'M SURPRISED.

THERE IT IS.

HE'S NOT GOING AFTER THAT

BUSTED UP LEG THAT COULD SET

UP A KNOCKOUT PUNCH IF HE

STAYS ON THE LEG AN GOES

BACK UPSTAIRS FOR OBLONSKY,

HE COULD GET SOME PAYOFF

FROM THERE.

THERE LEE GOES AGAIN,

ACTUALLY.

>> EXCHANGE, VARGA GETS

THROUGH.

OBLONSKY RERETALIATES WITH A

KICK TO THE SHY, -- THIGH,

DEFEAT "CRO COP".

"CRO COP" MEANS TO SHUT DOWN

THE YOUTH, HYPE AND SIZE.

FIGHTING OUT OF NEW YORK

"BIG BABY" MILLER!

ONCE AGAIN YOUR REFEREE FROM

THIS CONTEST IS BIG JOHN

>> FIGHT CLEAN, FIGHT HARD,

FIGHT FAIR.

TOUCH GLOVES.

GOOD LUCK TO BOTH OF YOU.

>> ONE OF THE BEST IN THE

BUSINESS, BIG JOHN McCARTHY

WILL BE OUR REFEREE FOR THIS

HEAVYWEIGHT MATCHUP BETWEEN

MIRKO "CRO COP" IN THE BLACK

GLOVES AND BLACK SHORTS AND

JARRELL MILLER IN THE WHITE

GLOVES.

[BELL]

>> DO NOT BLINK, BECAUSE

THESE ARE TWO ANGRY

MOTIVATED HEAVYWEIGHTS.

SOMEONE IS GETTING KNOCKED

OUT.

>> DEFINITELY, AND I THINK

BIG JOHN BEING IN THERE WITH

THOSE BIG BOYS IS A GOOD

CHOICE BY THE CALIFORNIA

STATE ATHLETIC COMMISSION.

>> CLOSING NUMBER HAS FIGHT

ODDS MILLER -245 AND "CRO

COP" THE EXPERIENCED FIGHTER

PLUS-175.

MILLER SAID HE REALLY WANTED

THIS FIGHT.

HE'S WAITED A LONG TIME TO

PUT IT TO MIRKO "CRO COP".

HE BELIEVES HE WAS ROBBED IN

CROATIA IN THAT FIRST BOUT

THAT TOOK PLACE LAST YEAR.

>> "CRO COP" LOOKS LIKE A

LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT NEXT TO

THE MAMMOTH HEAVYWEIGHT,

MILLIONER.

40-POUND WEIGHT ADVANTAGE

FOR JARRELL MILLNER THIS

FIGHT.

"CRO COP" WILL LOOK TO USE

HIS SPEED TO AVOID THAT

SHOT.

LEFT HOOK FROM "CRO COP"

GETS THROUGH, AND MILLER

CLINCHES.

HE'S GOT TO WATCH THAT.

USED TO BOXING, CLINCHING.

UNLESS YOU IMMEDIATELY DAK

WITH THE KNEES, YOU CANNOT

CLINCH MORE THAN A SECOND IN

GLORY, AND THERE'S A LOW

KNEE BY JARRELL MILLER TO

MIRKO "CRO COP".

THAT ONE LANDED SOUTH OF THE

BORDER.

"CRO COP" WILL HAVE FIVE

MINUTES TO REGROUP.

>> I TELL YOU, I DON'T THINK

A BIG MAN LIKE MILLER SHOULD

BE TRYING TO KICK AS MUCH.

HE'S GOT BOXING PEDIGREE.

TOUCH HIM WITH THAT JAB.

UPPERCUT, USE HIS BOXING

PEDIGREE.

>> WE DIDN'T EXPECT ANY

KICKS OR KNEES FROM MILLER

IN THIS FIGHT, AND SPEAKING

WITH HIM IN THE FIGHTER

MEETINGS, HE SAID HE WOULD

COME OUT TO THROW BOMBS,

USING HIS BOXING BACKROUND

TO KNOCK "CRO COP" OUT.

>> HE COMES OUT WITH

SHOULDER BLOCKS, SIMILAR TO

A MAYWEATHER, BUT VERY

USEFUL IN THE BOXING

INDUSTRY.

>> HIGH KICK THERE FROM

MIRKO "CRO COP".

DIDN'T DO A LOT OF DAMAGE,

BUT STARTING TO FIND HIS

ZONE AND HIS RANGE.

>> ONE DISADVANTAGE THAT

MILLER HAS COMING FROM

BOXING, ESPECIALLY GETTING

MORE FIGHTS, HE'S USED TO

BOXING MORE ROUNDS.

THIS IS A SPRINT, AND

SOMETIMES IN BOXING, IT'S A

CROSS-COUNTRY RACE.

YOU FEEL YOUR OPPONENT THE

FIRST ROUND.

THEN YOU GIVE UP A COUPLE

ROUNDS AND GET HIM LATER.

WE DON'T HAVE TIME TO DO

THAT TONIGHT.

>> LOW KICK FROM JARRELL

MILLER.

HE GETS A RIGHT HOOK

THROUGH.

30 SECONDS TO GO IN ROUND

NUMBER ONE, SCHEDULED FOR

THREE.

MIRKO "CRO COP" AND JARRELL

MILLER.

JAB FROM "CRO COP".

>> I TELL YOU, "CRO COP"

STARTED WITH BLOCK AND SMASH,

VICIOUS HIGH KICKS.

>> THAT KICK TO THE RIBS OF

MILLER ECHOED THROUGH THE

FRUL, BUT MILLER PUSHING

FORWARD LANDS SOME SHOTS TO

END ROUND NUMBER ONE.

[BELL]

39-YEAR-OLD MIRKO KPROEP

STILL IN GREAT SHAPE, HE MAY

HAVE REPLACED SPEED WITH

POWER PUNCHING TODAY, BUT

LOOKING GOOD FIRST ROUND.

>> HE'S DOING THE RIGHT

THING WHEN THE GUY GETS

CLOTHE.

HE SMOTHERS MILLER'S'S

PUNCHING POWER AND DOING A

GOOD JOB COUNTERPUNCHING

INSIDE AS WELL.

>> MORE STRIKES LANDED BY

MIRKO "CRO COP".

JARRELL MILLER LANDING KICKS,

SHOTS, BUT DUKE THE BACK AND

FORTH FIRST ROUND.

>> I GIVE THIS ONE TO THE

"CRO COP".

>> ROUND NUMBER TWO, MIRKO

"CRO COP" COMES OUT IN HIS

SOUTHPAW STANCE, JARRELL

MILLNER THE WHITE GLOVES,

ORTHODOX.

MILLER 9-0, ONE AS A PRO

BOXER.

LOOKING FOR REVENGE ON "CRO

COP" TONIGHT.

LITTLE SHORT SHARP SHOT GOT

THROUGH THERE BY MILLER,

PUSHED "CRO COP" BACK A

LITTLE BIT.

I'M A LITTLE SURPRISED

MILLER IS NOT THROWING MORE

BOMBS HERE.

>> YEAH.

AND HE'S TRYING TO ALMOST

TECHNICALLY KICK BOX WITH

HIM.

I WOULD EXPECT MORE PUNCHING

MYSELF.

>> NOT DOING MUCH WITH THE

JAB.

ANOTHER HUGE KICK FROM "CRO

COP" TO THE RIBS.

HE'S LETTING THE FIGHTERS

CLINCH THERE FOR A FEW

SECONDS, THINK BREAKS THEM

UP.

UNDER TWO MINUTES TO GO IN

ROUND NUMBER TWO.

MILLER MISSES WITH ANOTHER

KNEE.

HE'S NOT GETTING CLOSE WITH

THOSE.

THAT ONE GOT THROUGH BUT IT

DON'T THINK IT DID TOO MUCH

DAMAGE.

>> HE NEEDS TO BRING THAT

KNEE TO THE FACE IF HE'S

GOING TO USE IT.

>> "CRO COP" WITH A LOW KICK

TO THE THIGH.

HAVING SUCCESS WITH BOTH THE

KICKS UPSTAIRS AND

DOWNSTAIRS.

MILLER COMPLAINED TOO THAT

"CRO COP" WAS HEAD BUTT FWHG

THAT FIRST FIGHT, TOO.

>> WHEN YOU HAVE A RIGHTY

VS. LEFTY IN STRIKING, YOU

CAN'T HELP IT WITH THE

ANGLES.

SEE HOW THEIR HEADS TOUCH

EACH OTHER.

IT'S A PROBLEMATIC SITUATION

WHEN TWO GUYS ARE OFF THEIR

STANCES.

>> THOSE TWO CLINCH UP,

MILLER JUST LOOKS LIKE THE

BEHEMOTH LIKE THEY'RE

FIGHTING IN DIFFERENT WEIGHT

CLASSES.

>> SPEAKING OF HIT BUTTS AND

FINDING, I SAW VANDER

HOLYFIELD HERE.

HE KNOWS A LITTLE ABOUT HEAD

BUTTING AND MAYBE BITING AN

EAR OFF.

BUT IT'S A HARD THING WHEN

YOU'RE BOTH TRYING TO COME

FORWARD T. HEADS NATURALLY

COME TOGETHER.

>> "CRO COP" AGAIN WITH A

SOLID KICK TO THE RIBS.

MILLER CAUGHT IT, BUT YOU

HAVE TO QUICKLY MAKE A MOVE

AND LET IT GO.

30 SECONDS TO GO IN ROUND

NUMBER TWO.

>> NICE BURST OF ENERGY BY

"CRO COP".

YOU CAN SEE HE'S GOT SOME

SNAP IN THOSE PUNCHES.

>> "CRO COP" REALLY

SUCCESSFUL WITH HIS KICKS TO

THE BODY.

>> NICE HOCKEY PUNCH THERE,

GRABBED THE HEAD, COMING UP

WITH AN UPPERCUT.

>> WE ARE AT THE FORUM, THE

HOME OF THE L.A. KINGS.

AND SPEAKING OF SOME OF THE

GREATS, THERE IS A FORMER

CHAMP, VANDER -- VAN DER

HOLYFIELD.

GREAT TO HAVE HIM HERE IN

L.A.

>> NICE BODY KICK.

HE STUMBLED BUT THAT'S WHY

EVERYONE SHOWED UP, TO WATCH

THAT.

IF WE WERE WATCHING

BASKETBALL, THAT WOULD BE A

SLAMDUNK LAKERS STYLE.

HEY, THERE'S MY MAN, JOE

ROGAN.

HE'S A HUGE GLORY FAN.

WE HAD A GREAT TIME TALKING

GLORY ON THE JOE ROGAN POD

CAST.

DOWNLOAD IT, CHECK IT OUT ON

THE CENTENO.

>> HUGE FAN OF GLORY

KICKBOXING.

GLAD TO HAVE JOE IN L.A. AT

THE FORUM.

RON WITH DUKE, WE ARE SET

FOR OUR THIRD AND FINAL

ROUND BETWEEN MIRKO "CRO

COP" AND JARRELL MILLER.

>> HE GOT HIM FIRST.

BACK DOOR HOOK.

HE'S CATCHING THE BLIND SIDE

WITH THAT RIGHT HOOK THERE.

HE SEES IT.

NOT JARRELL, BUT MIRKO IS

SEEING AN OPENING THERE.

>> AND AGAIN, MILLER IS THE

ONE THAT'S THROWING THE

KICKS AND KNEES IN THIS

ROUND.

BIG JOHN SEPARATES THE

FIGHTERS.

"CRO COP" DESTROYING THE

RIBS OF MILLER.

AND AGAIN, THAT ONE WAS

SOUTH OF THE BORDER.

MIRKO "CRO COP" GRIMACING IN

PAIN.

THAT'S THE SECOND LOW BLOW

DELIVERED BY JARRELL MILLER.

"CRO COP" WILL TAKE AS MUCH

TIME AS HE NEEDS TO REGROUP.

LOOKS LIKE HE SHAKES IT OFF

PRETTY QUICKLY.

>> WHAT HAPPENED IS HE THREW

A SIDEKICK THAT LANDED, AND

MILLER WAS KICKING UNDER

WITH HIS ROUND KICK.

>> BUT "CRO COP" DOESN'T

TRASH TALK, BUT YOU COULD

TELL HE WAS MOTIVATED FOR

THIS FIGHT, BECAUSE MILLER

HAS BEEN DOING ENOUGH TRASH

TALK FOR BOTH OF THEM.

HE WAS MOTIVATED TO GET THE

VICTORY AGAIN OVER MILLER,

BUT ALSO HIS FIRST WIN IN

THE GLORY PROMOTION.

TWO MINUTES TO GO IN THIS

THIRD AND FINAL ROUND.

LOT OF ACTION.

FIGHTERS STACK UP AGAINST

EACH OTHER, SEPARATED BY BIG

JOHN.

"CRO COP" WAS ORIGINALLY

SCHEDULED TO FACE SERGI.

HE WAS INJURED.

NOW HERE COMES "CRO COP".

>> STILL GOT THAT KILLER

INSTINCT.

HE KICKED UP TO THE DOME.

OH, MAN.

>> NOW A THIRD LOW BLOW.

[KROUT BOOING].

>> JOHN McCARTHY DOES.

WE'LL SEE IF HE DEDUCTS A

POINT OR IF IT'S JUST A

WARNING.

TAKE A LOOK AT OUR REPLAY.

IT'S CLOSE.

TO ME THAT LOOKED MORE LIKE

A KNEE TO HIS BELLY.

EITHER WAY, NO POINTS TAKEN

AWAY.

WE ARE APPROACH 1:20 TO GO

IN THE THIRD AND FINAL

ROUND.

>> "CRO COP" LOOKS OK TO ME.

>> MILLER NEEDS TO DO

SOMETHING QUICKLY AND IN

SPECTACULAR FASHION.

ONE MINUTE TO GO.

AND REALLY, JARRELL MILLER

DOESN'T SEEM TO BE PUSHING

THE PACE RIGHT NOW.

ANOTHER SHOT FROM "CRO COP"

TO THE RIBS.

HE'S REALLY BROKEN DOWN THE

BODY OF MILLER.

>> THAT'S WHAT YOU'VE GOT TO

DO AGAINST THE BIG GUY.

GET HIM IN THE LEGS, THE

ARMS, THE BODY.

>> TECHNICALLY SOUND FIGHT

FROM MIRKO "CRO COP" USING

THE YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN

THE RING.

UNDER 30 TO GO.

MILLER NEEDS TO LAND A BIG

PUNCH.

PROBABLY NEEDS THE

KNOCKDOWN.

BIG KNEE, BLOCKED BY "CRO

COP".

TEN SECONDS TO GO.

HIGH KICK FROM "CRO COP"!

[BELL]

>> ONLY FITTING THAT MIRKO

"CRO COP" WOULD END THAT

FIGHT WITH ONE OF HIS

PATENTED HIGH KICKS.

THE BIG MAN, JARRELL MILLER

JUST COULDN'T DO MUCH BIG

MIRKO "CRO COP".

MILLER WITH THAT 40-POUND

WEIGHT ADVANTAGE BUT

COULDN'T REALLY GET ANYTHING

TO LAND, AS U.S. OPEN USED

HIS FEET.

AND HE LOOKED VERY

IMPRESSIVE, DUKE.

>> I GOT TO SAY, HE'S USED

TO FIGHTING BIG MEN.

LIKE I SAID, HE'S FOUGHT THE

BIGGEST AND BEST IN THE DAY,

FOUGHT A REALLY BIG MIKE

BERNARDO.

THE GLORY GIRLS GETTING

DOWN.

THEY LIKE IT HERE.

>> THE GLORY GIRLS GETTING

DOWN AND READY FOR THE

PAY-PER-VIEW TONIGHT AT

10:00 P.M.

EASTERN, GLORY PRESENTS

THEIR FIRST EVER

PAY-PER-VIEW THE "LAST MAN

STANDING" TOURNAMENT,

MIDDLEWEIGHT, EIGHT MEN WILL

BATTLE IT OUT, SECH WILL

FALL, ONE WILL BE CROWNED

CHAMPION.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT

TONIGHT'S HIGHLIGHTS BETWEEN

MILLER AND "CRO COP".

>> GOOD.

"CRO COP" GOING FOR THE

BODY.

HE WAS REALLY SURGING WITH

HIS BODY SHOTS.

BEAUTIFUL SHOT UPSIDE THE

GUARD THERE, TRIED TO GO FOR

THAT HEAD KICK.

GREAT PERFORMANCE BY "CRO

COP".

>> TOOK A FEW LOW BLOWS BUT

WAS READY TO SHAKE HIM OFF

AND GOT BACK IN THERE.
