WE'D BEEN OUT THEREFOR SIX OR SEVEN WEEKS,

JUST PURELY FOCUSINGON ONE PERSON,

I BUSTED MY ASS.NOW THIS HAPPENED.

- I GET IT 110%.

BUT YOU KNOW BETTERTHAN ANYBODY,

THESE THINGS HAPPEN.

WE GOT SOME GREAT OPTIONS.

ONE OF THEM:TRY TO FIND A REPLACEMENT

FOR THE PAY-PER-VIEWFOR MAIN EVENT.

ON A WEEK'S NOTICE,PROBABLY A BETTER CHANCE

I GROW A SECOND HEAD, OKAY?

BUT THE SECOND ALTERNATIVE IS,

WAIT A COUPLE OF WEEKS,

FIND THE RIGHT GUY,

AND PUT THIS ON SPIKE

SO MILLIONS UPON MILLIONSOF PEOPLE CAN WATCH IT.

IT WILL REACH SO MANY PEOPLETO SHOW THEM WHERE YOU ARE,

WHERE YOU'VE COME BACK TO,

AND THAT THE OLDQUINTON "RAMPAGE" JACKSON

IS BACK.

THAT'S A WIN-WIN.- THAT'S A WIN-WIN.

- AND YOU AND I COULD PROBABLYNAME ON ONE HAND

THE AMOUNT OF GUYSWHO WANT

TO GET INTO A FIGHTWITH YOU IN SHAPE,

KEEP IT STANDING,

STAND IN FRONT OF YOUAND ACTUALLY BANG.

AND I'M TELLING YOU,WE GOT THAT GUY.

- WHO YOU THINKING ABOUT?

- RAMPAGE JACKSONWAS AN ABSOLUTE SAVAGE.

BUT ON NOVEMBER 15TH,I'M NOT FIGHTING RAMPAGE.

I'M FIGHTING QUINTON JACKSON.

AND I DON'T THINK HE'S GOT ITLEFT IN HIS TANK ANYMORE.

- WHO THE [bleep] HAS HE FOUGHT?

I DON'T EVEN KNOWTHIS MOTHER[bleep].

- THIS SHOULD MAKEFOR HUGE FIREWORKS.

narrator:TITO ORTIZ HAS PULLED OUT

OF THE FIGHTWITH RAMPAGE JACKSON,

BUT THERE'S A NEW OPPONENTREADY TO STEP IN.

- I THINK WE GOT THAT GUY.

- WHO'S THE GUY YOU GOT IN MIND?

- JOEY BELTRAN,THE MEXICUTIONER.

- THE MEXICUTIONER.

- HE NEVER TAKES A STEP BACK.

BRINGS THE FIGHT.PURE STAND-UP.

THIS GUY IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.

HE IS A VERSION OF YOU.

THIS FIGHT COULD MAKEFOR ELECTRICITY.

- HEY, I LIKE THAT.

THAT SOUNDS--THAT SOUNDSLIKE MY TYPE OF FIGHT.

WHAT I HEARD ABOUTJOEY BELTRAN'S FIGHTING STYLE

IS THAT HE'S A BANGER;I LIKE THAT.

AND HE DON'T BACK UP.I DON'T BACK UP.

SOUND LIKE IT'LL BEA VERY EXPLOSIVE FIGHT.

HE'S A BIG GUY.

AND, YOU KNOW, I LIKEBEATING UP BIG GUYS,

'CAUSE YOU LOOK STUPIDWHEN YOU BEAT UP SMALLER GUYS.

narrator:90 MILES SOUTH,

RAMPAGE'S NEW OPPONENTIS ALREADY TRAINING.

JOEY BELTRAN SEES THIS FIGHT

AS THE OPPORTUNITYOF A LIFETIME,

AND HE HAS NO FEAROF THE BIG STAGE

OR THE MAN HE'LL BE FIGHTING.

- JOEY BELTRAN THE FIGHTER

IS A MAN THAT BRINGSAN UNBREAKABLE WILL,

UNMATCHABLE HEART,

AND I'M GONNA GIVE IT MY ALLFOR THE ENTIRE 15 MINUTES.

- I HAD JOEY SIGNED TO BELLATORYEARS AGO.

HE'S FOUGHT FOR USINSIDE THE BELLATOR CAGE

AND WON FOR US.

AS SOON AS THE TITO FIGHTWAS CALLED OFF,

JOEY BELTRAN'S MANAGEMENTCALLED US IMMEDIATELY AND SAID,

"LOOK, WE'LL TAKE RAMPAGE.

"WE'LL FIGHT ANYWHEREYOU WANT US TO FIGHT.

WE JUST WANT THE FIGHT."

- JOEY BELTRAN THE FIGHTERIS A TOUGH MEXICAN WARRIOR,

HENCE THE NAME MEXICUTIONER.

SO HE'S JUST A TOUGH, GRITTY GUYTHAT'S GONNA GO IN THERE

AND JUST GIVE YOUEVERYTHING HE HAS EVERY FIGHT.

- JOEY "THE MEXICUTIONER"BELTRAN.

- "THE MEXICUTIONER"IS A NICKNAME GIVEN TO ME

AS A SENSE OF PRIDEFOR MY STRONG MEXICAN HERITAGE

AND THE SPIRITOF COUNTLESS MEXICAN FIGHTERS

THAT I BRING IN WITH MEEVERY TIME I STEP INTO THE CAGE.

- I THINK HE GETS EXCITEDWHEN HE GETS HIT,

AND THE MORE BLOODTHAT HE TASTES OF HIS OWN,

I THINK IT JUST GETS HIM GOINGTO KEEP GOING HARDER AND HARDER.

THIS IS DEFINITELY JOEY'S CHANCETO GET OUT THERE

AND SHOW THE PEOPLEWHAT HE CAN REALLY DO.

- I TRULY HAVE NOTHING TO LOSEIN THIS FIGHT.

I'M BEING BROUGHT INON A LAST-MINUTE NOTICE.

MAJORITY OF PEOPLE HAVE ALREADYMAYBE KIND OF WRITTEN THIS OFF.

I GOT NOTHING TO LOSE, SO I'MGONNA PUT IT ALL ON THE LINE.

I'M PRETTY SURE I KNOWWHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN.

I'M EMBRACING THE WAR.

I'M READY TO EMBRACE THE GRIND.

HE'S JUST NOT GONNA BE ABLETO KEEP UP MY PACE.

WHEN HE HITS MEAND HITS ME AGAIN

AND HITS ME AGAINAND I KEEP COMING,

HE'S NOT GONNA KNOW WHAT TO DO.

- HEY!WHOO!

- NO PROBLEM.

- OKAY, SO WE GOT JOEY BELTRAN.

WHAT DO WE KNOW?

- GOOD CARDIO.

YOU KNOW, YOU'RE GONNA BEIN A FIGHT.

HE MAKES EVERYONE FIGHTWITH HIM.

- YOU KNOW, SOUNDS LIKEIT'S GONNA BE KIND OF LIKE

A STAND-UP WAR,'CAUSE HE'S A KICKBOXER, RIGHT?

- YEAH, WELL, ONE GOOD THING IS,

HE'S NOT GONNA TAKE YOU DOWNAND TRY AND HUMP YOU.

- I THINK HE'LL SEE THISAS A BIG OPPORTUNITY.

STRAIGHTAWAY,THAT MAKES HIM DANGEROUS.

I THINK BELTRAN'SA MORE DIFFICULT FIGHT.

I THINK IT'SA MORE ENTERTAINING FIGHT,

AND I THINK IT'SA MORE DIFFICULT FIGHT.

I HONESTLY THINK THAT TITOWOULDN'T HAVE GONE

MAYBE A ROUND AND A HALF,TOPS, WITH QUINTON.

AT THIS STAGE, I DON'T.

I THINK BELTRAN PRESENTSA BIT MORE OF A SORT OF A TEST.

- YEAH, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE,REALLY, IS THAT WHEREAS YOU KNEW

YOU COULD PROBABLY LANDA CLEAN SHOT ON TITO

AND PUT HIM TO SLEEP,

THERE'S NOT GUARANTEEWITH THIS GUY,

SO YOU JUST GOT TO STAY SHARPAND FAST

AND LET YOUR POWERDO ITS OWN WORK.

- YEAH.

narrator:FOR RAMPAGE,

THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGABOUT THIS FIGHT

IS THAT HE'S COMPLETELY HEALTHYFOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS:

HEALTHY IN HIS MIND,

HIS KNEES,AND THE REST OF HIS BODY.

THE FORMER CHAMPIONIS EAGER TO SHOW THE WORLD

THAT RAMPAGE JACKSON IS BACK,

WHICH MIGHT PROVE VERY BAD NEWSFOR JOEY BELTRAN.

- JOEY BELTRAN,THE KIND OF FIGHTER

THAT QUINTON "RAMPAGE" JACKSONWANTS TO FACE.

IT'S A GUY WHO DOES NOT KNOWHOW TO TAKE A STEP BACK.

THIS SHOULD MAKEFOR HUGE FIREWORKS.

- I KNOW THAT RAMPAGEWAS ONCE A PHENOMENAL FIGHTER.

HE HAD THE HEART.HE WAS HUNGRY.

IT'S REALLY HARDTO STAY HUNGRY

WHEN YOU'RE SLEEPINGIN SATIN SHEETS.

- WHO THE [bleep] HAS HE FOUGHT?

I DON'T EVEN KNOWTHIS MOTHER[bleep].

- RAMPAGE JACKSONWAS AN ABSOLUTE SAVAGE.

BUT ON NOVEMBER 15TH,I'M NOT FIGHTING RAMPAGE.

I'M FIGHTING QUINTON JACKSON.

AND I DON'T THINK HE'S GOT ITLEFT IN HIS TANK ANYMORE.

- THE ONLY THINGTHAT THE OLD RAMPAGE DIDN'T HAVE

WAS ALL THOSE INJURIES,

AND THAT'S WHAT THE NEW RAMPAGEDON'T HAVE.

SOUND LIKEHE'S UNDERESTIMATING ME.

HE'S GONNA BE SHOCKED.HE'S GONNA BE SURPRISED.

- I'VE BEEN THROUGH HELL.

I'M WILLING TO GO THROUGH ITONE MORE TIME.

I DON'T KNOW THAT HE IS.

- THE THING ABOUT ME THAT A LOTOF PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND IS,

I ACTUALLY LIKE GETTING PUNCHED.

IT DON'T BOTHER ME.

CAN HE TAKE MY PUNCH, THOUGH?

CAN HE KEEP TAKING THEM?

THE OLD RAMPAGE IS BACK,

AND HE'S READYTO SHOW THE WORLD.
