PAT CURRAN FOR THE

FEATHERWEIGHT WORLD TITLE.

LET'S GET THIS NIGHT STARTED

WITH TWO MEN WHO TRULY

DISLIKE EACH OTHER.

JIMMY: YOU SEE CARL PARISYAN

SO EXPERIENCED TRYING TO

MAKE HIS MARK AGAINST RICK

HAWN, THE ONE GUY WHO HAS

BETTER JUDO CREDENTIALS.

BOTH OF THESE GUYS A LOT OF

BAD BLOOD IN THIS FIGHT.

LET'S FIND OUT ABOUT IT.

>> WITH THE CHANDLER FIGHT,

I JUST MADE A MISTAKE, AND I

GOT CAUGHT.

MAN.

TWO DAYS AFTER THE FIGHT I

WAS BACK IN THE MAT WORKING

OUT TO KEEP PURSUING YOUR

DREAM IS REALLY IMPORTANT,

AND IF YOU HAVE THE MENTAL

FORT TUD TO DO THAT, CAN YOU

ACHIEVE ANYTHING.

FIGHTING IS LIKE DRINKING

WATER FOR ME.

WHEN I TORE MY HAMSTRING,

THAT'S WHAT LED TO THE PAIN

MEDICATION AND ALL THAT

STUFF.

I HAD THAT DEMON INSIDE.

TIME CAME, EITHER I'M DIRKS

I'M GOING TO JAIL OR I GOT

TO CHANGE MY LIFE.

IT'S BEEN A LITTLE OVER TWO

MONTHS, AND I'M ALREADY

FIGHTING THE BIG SHOW.

HONESTLY, I CAN RETIRE TODAY

AND GO DOWN AS THE BEST JUDE

OH GUY IN THE BUSINESS.

>> HE'S PRETTY ARROGANT.

WE JUST DON'T LIKE EACH

OTHER, PERIOD.

>> THERE ARE SOME INTERVIEWS

I RUB HIM THE WRONG WAY,

DON'T COMPARE ME TO THAT

GUY.

WHO ARE YOU, RICK?

I RESPECT YOU AS AN ATHLETE,

BUT WHO THE [BLEEP] YOU

THINK YOU ARE?

STUPID MOMO.

>> THIS IS THE ONE TIME I'M

FIGHTING SOMEONE I DON'T

LIKE ON A PERSONAL LEVEL.

IT WOULD BE SATISFYING TO

THROW HIM ON HIS HEAD, PUT A

STAMP ON MY RESUME.

>> IF I COME OUT HERE AND

BEAT RICK HAWN, I THINK I

SHOW THE ENTIRE MMA WORLD

THAT I'M BACK FORCED TO BE

RECKONED WITH AGAIN, AND

BRING ON ALL COMERS, MAN.

SEAN: OUR TALE OF THE TAPE

FOR THIS WELTERWEIGHT TAPE

IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY DAVE

JIMMY: HE'S EXPERIENCED,

EASY TO FORGET.

PARISYAN HAS TIME TO TURN

THINGS AROUND.

AND THE REFEREE IN CHARGE OF

THE ACTION, KASPER OLIVER.

>> OK GUYS, LET'S KEEP THIS

FIGHT CLEAN, UNDERSTAND?

LET'S MAKE IT OFFICIAL.

ALL RIGHT.

STEP BACK.

SEAN: RARELY IN MMA JIMMY IS

THERE GENUINE ANIMOSITY.

THERE IS GENUINE ANIMOSITY

BETWEEN CARL PARISYAN AND

RICK HAWN.

ARE YOU READY?

FIGHT!

SEAN: THE BELL IN ROUND

NUMBER ONE.

TONIGHT'S FIGHT CLOCK

BROUGHT TO YOU BY MILLER

LITE, THE OFFICIAL BEER OF

JIMMY: ONE THINK CARL IS

KNOWN FOR, HE HAS VERY HEAVY

SHOTS.

HERE THEY ARE IN THE CLINCH.

SEAN: BOTH FIGHTERS AS YOU

TRIM, PARISYAN HAS THE RED

GLOVE TAIRNGS HAWN THE BLUE

GLOVE TAPE.

LOW BLOW SUFFERED BY PARS

YACHBLT TIME CALLED BY THE

BOTH THESE GUYS LIKE THE

THAT WAS A LEGAL SHOT.

I DISAGREE.

IT WAS A VERY LEGAL SHOT.

YOU HEAR THE CROWD REACTING.

THAT LOOKED GOOD.

SEAN: PARISYAN GIVEN FIVE B

MINUTES TO RECOVER.

SKBLAOIFRJTH CHOPPING

OUTSIDE KICK BY HAWN.

JIMMY: THE TWO GUYS ARE

IANLY MATCHED IN TERMS OF

TAKEDOWN ABILITY.

MIGHT COME DOWN TO THE

STRIKING.

SO FAR, KARO BEING THE

AGGRESSOR.

HE'S BEEN THE ONE PUSHING

FORWARD.

SEAN: LEFT HAND BY PARISYAN.

JIMMY: BOTH FIGHT

RESEARCHERS USED TO HAVING

THE JUDO ADVANTAGE AGAINST

THEIR OPPONENT.

ONE GUY MIGHT BE BETTER.

HAWN HAS THE BETTER

CREDENTIALS, BUT IT'S NOT

LIKE HE HAS A HUGE

ADVANTAGE.

SEAN: SIDE KICK BY HAWN.

JIMMY: THEY FALL BACK ON

THEIR JUDO WITH A TON OF

CONFIDENCE.

SEAN: WE SEE HIM AGAIN

COMING FORWARD.

JIMMY: KARO IS TRYING TO

COME FORWARD, TRYING TO BE

THE AGGRESSOR.

HE'S GOT TO BE CAREFUL WITH

THAT RIGHT HAND.

YOU DON'T PROTECT AGAINST

THAT RIGHT HAND, IT'S GOOD

NIGHT.

JAON HAWN FROM THE GLITCH.

THAT'S THE TIME BOTH OF

THOSE GUYS USUALLY GO FOR

THE THROW, BUT THEY SEPARATE

QUICKLY.

SEAN: THE KICK PARTIALLY

BLOCKED.

PARISYAN POUNCES.

TWO MINUTES REMAINING ROUND

NUMBER ONE OF THIS

WELTERWEIGHT FIGHT, FORMER

WELTERWEIGHT CHAMP KARO

CHAMPION HAWN.

JIMMY: HE SAYS HE BEAT ME IN

JUDO.

HE WAS 23 YEARS OLD, HE HAD

MAN STRENGTH AND I DIDN'T.

SEAN: TRYING TO THROW THE

ONE-TWO.

NO SUCCESS.

JIMMY: NEITHER GUY IS VERY

ACTIVE.

NICE HAND BY RICK HAWN.

KARO A LITTLE BUSIER WITH

THE LEAD HAND.

NEITHER GUY RERELYING ON A

LOT.

HARD TO THE BODY WITH THE

RIGHT HAND.

JIMMY: ONE MINUTE FOR THIS

ROUND.

STILL VERY MUCH UP FOR GRABS,

IN MY OPINION.

SEAN: INSIDE KICK FOR

PARISYAN.

JIMMY: TIME CALLED BY THE

REFEREE.

CAN YOU TALL TIMEOUT IN THE

MIDDLE OF A FIGHT?

SEAN: YOU CAN TRY.

JIMMY: LET'S SEE.

CERTAINLY NOT A DIRTY SHOT.

IT HIT THE CUP JUST BARELY.

SEAN: JIMMY IF I WERE AN

EXPERT ON THE RULES, I WOULD

SAY NOWHERE CAN YOU CALL

TIME AND GET AWAY WITH IT.

YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU

WANT.

JIMMY: THE REFEREE CALLED

THAT A LOW BLOW.

TIME IN.

IT'S FUNNY.

YOU SEE BOTH GUYS SHIFTING

WITH THE LEG TRYING TO FIND

A WAY IN WITHOUT NEEDING THE

POWER SHOT.

BOTH HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT

FOR THE RIGHT HAND OF THE

OTHER.

SEAN: TO THE BODY.

NO SUCCESS.

CLOSING STAGES ROUND NUMBER

JIMMY: YOU SEE HERE THE

SEQUENCE OF THE END.

ROUND.

THAT SEQUENCE STUNNED KARO,

BUT KARO WITH IT ENOUGH TO

STAY TIGHT, NOT GIVING HIM

THE DISTANCE FOR A KNOCKOUT

SHOT.

SEAN: JIMMY WITH THE

UNOFFICIAL SCORECARD.

JIMMY: I GAVE IT 10-9 TO

RICK HAWN BASED ON THAT

FLURRY.

HE LANDED A COUPLE MORE

SHOTS THAN KARO PARISYAN.

SEAN: FANS LET US KNOW WHAT

YOU THINK.

YOU'RE THE FOURTH JUDGE

SCORING ON THE BELLATOR MMA

IMPORTANT, RICK HAWN SAID I

KNOW I'M GOING TO BE IN

BETTER SHAPE THAN KARO

PARISYAN.

GOOD LEFT HAND.

NOW THEY'RE INTO THE SECOND

ROUND OF A TOUGH FIGHT.

WILL KARO START SLOWING

DOWN?

HE WAS DEFINITELY THE

AGGRESSOR THE FIRST ROUND.

SEAN: PARISYAN WITH THE

ONE-TWO NOT LANDING.

PARISYAN KEEPS COMING

FORWARD.

BOLO PUNCH.

JIMMY: ANOTHER GOOD LEFT.

SEAN: LEFT TO THE BODY.

JIMMY: I LIKE THE BODY WORK

HE'S IN BIG TROUBLE.

SEAN: THAT IS IT!

SECOND ROUND VICTORY FOR

RICK HAWN.

JIMMY: BANG, THAT RIGHT HAND

THAT HAS FELLED SO MANY

FIGHTERS IN BELLATOR FELLED

KARO PARISYAN.

SEAN: HE'S FURIOUS, BUT THAT

WAS A GOOD STOPPAGE.

HE HIT THE GROUND HARD.

THIS GRUDGE MATCH.

JIMMY: A LOOK AT IT HERE,

FOLKS.

THE RIGHT HAND, BANG!

KARO ON ROLLER SKATES

DOESN'T KNOW WHERE HE IS.

HE KNEW I WAS WAITING FOR

THAT, SO I HAD TO WAIT TO

THE SECOND ROUND TO KIND OF

MIX THINGS UP, BUT GOOD JUDO

GUY AND I FELT HIM IN THE

CLINCH.

I REMEMBER FROM THE OLD DAYS

SAYING HE'S GOOD.

JIMMY: I COULD TELL YOU'VE

BEEN WORKING ON YOUR LEFT

AND YOUR BODY SHOTS.

BY TEND OF THAT SHOT DID YOU

KNOW YOU HAD HIM IN THAT

MUCH TROUBLE?

TELL ME ABOUT IT.

>> YEAH, HE STUMBLED FROM

CAME IN TOO AGGRESSIVE, BUT

IT WORKED OUT FOR ME.

JIMMY: OBVIOUSLY A

SEAN: MARSHALL SITTING UP.

JIMMY: IF YOU LOOK AT IT,

THE WAY HE GOT HERE, BRETT

IN THE BLACK TRUNKS.

THERE'S THE FIRST TAKEDOWN

OF THE FIGHT.

LEG OF McGEARY LOOKING FOR

THE REVERSE TRIANGLE,

YOU'VE GOT TO PRESSURE A GUY

IN ORDER TO GET AROUND HIS

LEGS.

VERY HIGH UP WITH HIS HIPS.

ELBOW FROM THE BOTTOM THAT

REALLY HURT HIM.

SEAN: McGEARY GOING TO WORK.

REFEREE STEPPING IN, AN

THAT'S THE END OF THE FIGHT!

BOXING FANNIN VOEKING THE

NAME OF ARTURO GOTTI, HE

SAYS REMEMBER THE FIGHT OF

MICKY WARD.

FOURTH JUDGE ON THE BELLATOR

APP.

JIMMY: FRODO REACHING A

LITTLE BIT TO START THIS

ROUND.

THROUGH.

JIMMY: RICHMAN CANNOT GIVE

UP A TAKEDOWN AND SPEND THE

ROUND ON HIS BUTT.

SEAN: WELL DEFENDED BY MIKE

RICHMAN THUS FAR.

JIMMY: WENT FOR THE SWITCH.

SEAN: TENACITY FROM

KHASBULAEV, AN HE GETS IT.

JIMMY: I DON'T KNOW IF THAT

WAS A GOOD MOVE IN FRONT OF

FRODO'S FACE.

WORKING THE CROSS FACE AND

SWITCH TO THE SWITCH, AND IT

DID NOT WORK.

SEAN: SHOT THERE WITH THE

RIGHT HAND TO THE FACE,

RICHMAN BACK TO HIS FEET.

JIMMY: GOOD JOB COMING BACK

TO HIS FEET.

SEAN: RICHMAN COMES FORWARD.

JIMMY: THAT JAB HAS BEEN

EFFECTIVE IN THE LAST COUPLE

ROUNDS.

SEAN: KHASBULAEV THROWING

THE OUTSIDE KICK, BUT HIS

FREQUENCY OF KICKS HAS GONE

DOWN IN THIS FIGHT.

JIMMY: HE'S THROWING A LOT

OF HARD SHOTS.

NOT MANY OF THEM LANDING.

SEAN: TO THE BODY FROM

RICHMAN.

JIMMY: ALSO, RICHMAN THE

AGGRESSOR SO FAR IN THIS

THIRD ROUND.

HE'S THE ONE WALKING

FORWARD.

FRODO AGGRESSIVE IN THE

FIRST COUPLE ROUNDS, BUT NOW

STARTING TO SLOW DOWN.

SEAN: BACK KICK FROM

WORLD TITLE SHOT.

SO CLOSE RIGHT NOW.

ON THE BELLATOR APP, YOU

HAVE IT 50/50.

SUPERMAN TOUCH FROM

KHASBULAEV NOT THROUGH.

JIMMY: AND THE ONE STAT THAT

COUNTS IN JUDGING NOT ON THE

APP IS WHO'S THE AGGRESSOR.

IN THIS ROUND, IT'S BEEN

MIKE RICHMAN WALKING

FORWARD.

BOTH GUYS HAVE BEEN LANDING.

BOTH GUYS HAVE BEEN

MANAGING.

MIKE RICHMAN HAS BEEN THE

ONE WALKING FORWARD.

SEAN: 1:50 REMAINING IN THIS

THIRD AND FINAL ROUND.

JIMMY: SO MUCH UP FOR GRABS

IN THIS FIGHT.

BACK.

JIMMY: THESE GUYS HAVE TO BE

EXHAUSTED.

SEAN: FAKE BY KHASBULAEV.

JIMMY: DROPPED HIS RIGHT

HAND, HE'S GOT TO THROW THAT

JAB.

I THINK WHOEVER TURNS IT ON

ROUND AND THE FIGHT, THAT'S

REALLY HOW I SEE IT, SEAN.

RIGHT THERE, FRODO GETS THE

TAKEDOWN.

THIS IS NOT WHERE RICHIE

WANTS TO BE.

LOOKING AT EACH OTHER, WHO

IS GOING TO BE THE

INITIATOR.

THAT'S A BIG QUESTION, WHO

IS GOING TO OPEN UP.

SEAN: FIRST KICK TO THE

STOMACH BY CURRAN.

JIMMY: BOTH SIDES ARE

AGGRESSIVE BOXING, BUT

THEY'RE GENERALLY

COUNTERPUNCHES.

SEAN: QUICK INSIDE KICK FROM

SHAMHALAEV.

JIMMY: IF THERE'S A WEAKNESS,

HE TENDS TO BE A SLOW

STARTER.

HE FOUGHT EDDIE ALVAREZ AND

WAS DOWN THREE ROUNDS TO ONE

AND REALLY DIDN'T CHANGE HIS

STYLE.

DIDN'T OPEN UP.

STILL STAYED TIME LOST THE

DECISION.

TIGHT ALMOST TO A FAULT.

SEAN: NOT THROUGH.

JIMMY: BOTH GUYS ARE LOOKING

AT EACH OTHER.

HE'S GOING TO GET OFF A

PUNCH.

SEAN: NICE HEAD KICK.

JIMMY:.

JIMMY: HAVEN'T SEEN A LOT OF

OFFENSIVE TAKEDOWNS FROM

HIM.

SEAN: SHAMHALAEV STAYING

TIGHT WITH HIS HANDS.

JIMMY: THERE IT IS, GREAT

TIMING GOING HARD FOR THE

GUILLOTINE.

CLOSED DOOR GUILLOTINE.

SEAN: THAT IS TIGHT.

JIMMY: HE'S OUT.

SEAN: THAT IS IT!

A TECHNICAL SUBMISSION WIN!

SHAHBULAT SHAMHALAEV WITH

THE CHAMPION PAT CURRAN.

JIMMY: WOULD WE SEE THE

WRESTLING?

WOULD WE SEE THE SUBMISSION?

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE SAW

WITH PAT CURRAN.

MAN, THAT IS BREAD AND

BUTTER, GREAT CHOKES, GREAT

GUILLOTINE, HE USED IT.

SEAN: SHAHBULAT SHAMHALAEV

IS FURIOUS.

REPORTER: THEY CAN SHOW HIM

THE VIDEO IF HE WANTS.

HE WAS OUT.

NO CONTROVERSY THERE.

HE WENT OUT.

HE DOESN'T REMEMBER IT, AND

HE'S UPSET, BUT TAKE A LOOK

AT IT AGAIN.

SHOW THIS REPLAY TO

SHAMHALAEV.

HE'S UPSET.

YOU SEE THERE, GUILLOTINE.

WE GOT THE ARM CAUGHT IN.

THAT'S WHY HE WASN'T ABLE TO

PUT WEIGHT ON IT, NOT ABLE

TO ESCAPE.

LOOK AT THE TORQUE ON THIS

GUILLOTINE.

TRIED TO PUNCH HIS WAY OUT.

JUST MADE HIM PASS OUT

QUICKER.

SEAN: WATCH REFEREE KEITH

PETERSON.

HE'S LOOKING AT THE ARMS OF

SHAMHALAEV.

JIMMY: GREAT STOP, AS SOON

AS HE WENT OUT, REFEREE ALL

OVER IT.

GREAT JOB BY THE CHAMP, PAT

CURRAN AGAINST HIS TOUGHEST

CHALLENGE.

HE FINISHES HIM IN THE FIRST

ROUND.

SEAN: WHEN WE RETURN, JIMMY

SMITH WILL SPEAK TO THE

WINNER.

HE IS THE CHAMPION OF

BELLATOR'S FEATHERWEIGHT

DIVISION, PAT CURRAN,

ANOTHER IMPRESSIVE AND

SUCCESSFUL TITLE DEFENSE.

SEAN: PAT CURRAN RETAINS HIS

FEATHERWEIGHT WORLD TITLE,

FIRST ROUND TECHNICAL

SUBMISSION.

LET'S LOOK AT IT NOW.
