BEING THE CHAMPION, IT'S ALL

PITBULL HAS BEEN TALKING A LOT,

BUT I DON'T DO THAT.

I TALK IN THE CAGE.

>> OH, MY GOD.

I TRULY HOPE QURAN ENJOYED HIS

TIME BEING A CHAMPION BECAUSE HE

HE'S NOT GOING TO LAST VERY LONG

LONG.

HE STOLE MY TITLE SHOT.

I BROKE MY HAND, AND HE SKIPPED

AHEAD OF ME AND ROBBED ME.

I'M PISSED AND SOMEONE'S GONNA

PAY.

>> NOW HE'S TEEING OFF.

HE'S IN BIG TROUBLE.

THAT IS IT.

>> EVERY TIME I PUT MY BELT ON

THE LINE, IT'S AGAINST THE BEST

FIGHTERS IN THE WORLD.

>> THEY'RE HUNGRY.

THEY HAVE BEEN THERE, I KNOW

WHAT HE'S THINKING.

>> THIS IS THIS IS WHAT I'M

THINKING.

PAT IS GOING TO PUNCH YOU IN THE

MOUTH.

IF YOU SEE BLOOD ON YOUR LIPS,

YOU KNOW IN YOUR HEART, YOU'RE

FIGHTING A MAN WHO IS BETTER

THAN YOU, EVERY ASPECT OF THE

FIGHT GAME.

PATRICIO'S NEVER BEEN KNOCKED

OUT BEFORE.

IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME.

>> THE RIGHT HAND.

HE IS OUT.

>> I HAVE THE POWER TO HUMBLE

ANY MAN.

THIS FIGHT ENDS WITH ME BECOMING

THE NEXT FEATHER WEIGHT WORLD

CHAMP ION.

IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

>> MODIFIED GUILLOTINE.

>> I DEFINITELY FEEL LIKE I'M

THE BEST 145-POUNDER IN THE

WORLD.

I DON'T WANT TO JUST BEAT HIM.

I WANT TO MAKE A STATEMENT.

I HAVE TO WIN.

I WON'T STOP UNTIL I HAVE TO.

NOUN FIGHTING LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, NOW SET TO MAKE HIS

WAY TO THE CAGE, EARNING THE

TITLE SHOT AS A TOURNAMENT

CHAMPION PITBULL.

>> JIMMY, HE'S POWERFUL,

EXPLOSIVE, DYNAMIC, HE'S ALSO

5'5".

HELLS OPPONENT PAT QURAN IS

5'10".

>> THAT'S REQUESTING TO BE THE

PROBLEM.

REACH -- THAT'S GOING TO BE THE

PROBLEM.

REACH, RANGE.

STRONG, POWERFUL.

VERY HARD PUNCHER BUT HE HAS TO

GET INSIDE TO USE THOSE WEAPONS

EFFECTIVELY.

PATRICIO PITBULL, ACTUALLY ANGRY

WITH PAT CURRAN.

CURRAN, TOOL, TOTALLY CALM, AND

WAS NOT BOTH ERRED BY THE

COMMENTS OF PATRICIO PIT BULL.

>> PITBULL, VERY FIERY, HYPED UP

BEFORE THIS FIGHT, ANGRY.

HE'S COMING IN WITH A CHIP ON

HIS SHOULDER.

WITH PAT CURRAN, DON'T EXPECT

THAT TO FLUTTER HIM.

HE IS ICE COLD INSIDE AND OUT OF

THE CAGE.

VERY CEREBRAL FIGHTER.

JIMMY, ARE YOU EXPECTING

PATRICIO TO BE EXPLOSIVE?

>> HE HAS TO.

HE HAS TO MAKE THIS A CLOSE-

CLOSE-RANGE FIGHT.

AND HE HAS CONFIDENCE.

DON'T BE SURPRISED IF HE TRIES

TO PUT PAT CURRAN ON HIS BUTT

EARLY.

ISHOA I

>> AND NOW, READY TO MAKE HIS

WAY TO THE CAGE.

BELLATOR FEATHER WEIGHT WORLD

CHAMP ION.

PAT CURRAN.

>> PAT CURRAN BECAME THE

BELLATOR CHAMPION WHEN HE

KNOCKED OUT 5'6" WARREN.

CURRAN WAS ABSOLUTELY

OUTSTANDING.

>> HE WAS VERY GOOD, BUT OF

COURSE, NOWHERE NEAR THE

PUNCHING POWER OF PIT BULL.

HE SAID, HEY, I KNEW IF I COULD

STOP THE TAKEDOWN IN THAT FIGHT,

I WAS GOING TO WIN ASSUERIO

SILVA. HE WASN'T WORRIED ABOUT

GETTING KNOCKED OUT BY JOE

WARREN.

>> FOR HIS DYNAMIC REEL FINISHES

FINISHES, CURRAN COULD BE A CALM

METHODICAL FIGHTER.

>> THAT WAS A GUY WITH A SIMILAR

BUILD, KNOCKOUT POWER, SHORTER

AND HE WAS ABLE TO PICK HIM

APART FROM THE OUTSIDE.

THAT'S GOING TO BE HIS STRATEGY

TONIGHT.

>> HE'S NOT THE TYPE OF FIGHTER

TO BE FADED.

HE WILL NOT FIGHT SOMEONE ELSE'S

FIGHT.

>> HE WILL NOT BE FADED, HE WILL

NOT BE BULLIED.

LET'S DO THE NUMBERS.

TONIGHT'S TALE OF THE TAPE IS

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DAVE AND

BUSTERS.

OFFICIAL BEER OF BELLATOR.

IT'S NOT JUST A GOOD TIME.

IT'S MILLER LITE.

>> BOTH GUYS, VERY TIGHT.

I THINK THEY KNOW ONE MISTAKE

MIGHT BE THE END OF THE NIGHT.

PIT BULL IN THE RED TRUNKS, PAT

CURRAN IN THE BLACK TRUNKS.

CHIN DOWN, HANDS HIGH.

DOES NOT MAKE A LOT MISTAKES IN

THE STAND-UP.

THERE'S A WEAKNESS, HE DOESN'T

THROW A LOT OF STRIKES A LITTLE

TOO CONSERVATIVE.

WE SAW THAT AGAINST EDDIE

ALVAREZ.

EVEN WHEN HE'S LOSING ROUNDS, HE

OPENS UP.

CHOPPING KICK BY PITBULL.

THIS IS ALREADY MORE RESPECT

THAN I THOUGHT THEY WOULD SHOW

ONE ANOTHER.

SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE PIT BULL

BULL.

PUNCHES.

NOTHING GOT THROUGH.

>> HE LIKES TO END HIS

COMBINATION IN LEG KICKS.

BODY KICK CAUGHT.

HIS BALANCE, AND JIMMY, TELLING

TELLINGLY, PITBULL DIDN'T POUNCE

POUNCE.

>> TRYING TO PRESS A LITTLE BIT

MORE FOR THE TAKEDOWN.

DEFENSE IS EXCEPTIONAL.

HAS A WRESTLING BACKGROUND.

SAYS HE WON'T BE FADED.

NOT MAKING ANY MISTAKES.

PILL BULL INITIATED THEM.

CURRAN IS UNORTHODOXED ON THAT

LEFT HAND.

FIGHT COULD END AT ANY TIME.

INSIDE KICK.

COUNTER KICK.

PITBULL FOR PAT CURRAN.

JIMMY HOLDING HIS RIGHT HAND

EXTREME LEHIGH, AND HE NEEDS

ANOTHER INSIDE KICK FOR PITBULL.

JIM, JUST LOOK AT THE CONTRAST

WHERE THE TWO FIGHTERS ARE

HOLDING THEIR HANDS.

PITBULL A LITTLE BIT WIDE.

BIG RIGHT HAND BY CURRAN.

NICE AND SHARP.

HE THROWS WELL.

NICE, TIGHT COMBINATION.

PITBULL IS THE HARDER PUNCHER.

RIGHT BACK TO HIS CHAIN.

GOOD COMBINATION ON THE INSIDE.

BACKED OFF PITBULL AND THE HEAD

KICK.

THAT DIDN'T LAND.

OPENS UP A LITTLE BIT.

HE KNOWS THIS IS A 5 ROUND FIGHT

FIGHT.

TWO FROM PITBULL.

1:48 REMAINING IN THIS WORLD

CHAMP ION BELLATOR FIGHT.

IN FAVOR OF CURRAN.

>> HE DOESN'T COUNTER PUNCH WITH

ONE.

HE COUNTER PUNCHES WITH THREE

AND FOUR.

ANOTHER SIDE KICK.

DIFFICULT INITIATING.

HE'S THE ONE STARTING THE ACTION

ACTION.

PAT CURRAN CAN COUNTER PUNCH SO

FAR.

THAT'S A NICE JAB.

THAT WILL BE A LITTLE ATE MORE

TO THIS ROUND.

STILL A LOT OF RESPECT HERE.

THIS MORE TENTATIVE FOR BOTH

FIGHTERS.

>> HE SHOULD START MORE AGGRESS

AGGRESSIVELY.

I THINK HE HAS THE POWER

PUNCHING SKILLLESS OF PAT CURRAN

CURRAN.

ROUND IS STILL VERY MUCH UP.

ANSWER RIGHT BACK AFTER EATING

THAT LEFT HOOK FROM CURRAN.

AND HE THROWS THE PUNCHES, AND

FINISHES WITH THE OUTSIDE KICK.

FAVORITE COMBINATION, ONE, TWO,

THREE, FOUR LEG KICK.

CURRAN NOT CHECKING THOSE KICKS.

>> THOSE INSIDE KICKS.

NICE RIGHT BY PITBULL.

ROUND NUMBER 1.

AND A VERY EVE

OUR BELLATOR GIRLS, MERCEDES,

TERELL, AND JAY, WILL BE HERE

EVERY WEEK AS BELLATOR MMA IS

LIVE.

BEGINNING 10:00 P.M. EASTERN

RIGHT HERE ON SPIKE.

THREE JUDGES SCORING THE FEATHER

WEIGHT WORLD TITLE.

>> 10-9 PITBULL.

HE WAS THE INITIATOR.

LANDED SOME KICKS.

NEITHER GUY LANDED VERY MANY

KICKS.

NICE BREAK DOWN THE PIKE.

TRYING TO TURN UP THE AGGRESSION

AGGRESSION.

SETS IT WITH THAT RIGHT HAND.

>> IT'S A BALANCING ACT.

PAT CURRAN, HIS WEAKNESS IS HE'S

A STRIKER.

YOU STEAL ROUNDS FROM HIM, BY

BEING ACTIVE.

HE CAN KNOCK YOU OUT WITH ONE

SHOT, AND HE'S VERY ACCURATE.

>> GOOD ENOUGH TO STEAL ROUNDS,

TAKE THAT KNOCKOUT SHOT.

>> THAT DIDN'T GET THROUGH FOR

CURRAN.

TIGHTENS SOME THINGS UP.

THEY'RE TRYING TO GO TO THE BODY

AND THEN TURNS OUT.

NICE BIG SHOT BY CURRAN.

I DON'T KNOW, THEY BOTH NOD IN

THE AFFIRMATIVE.

GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP BY PITBULL.

HE KNEW HE DID SOMETHING WRONG.

LOOK AT THOSE STRAIGHT SHOTS.

VERY FAST.

STRAIGHT CLASSIC 1-2 FROM CURRAN

CURRAN.

PITBULL'S GOT TO BEAT THAT WITH

HEAD MOVEMENT.

GOOD BODY SHOT.

AND PITBULL WAVES CURRAN ON.

BIG HEAD, STRONG HARD TO HURT A

GUY LIKE THAT.

THE RIGHT HAND IS A GOOD LANDING

LANDING.

PITBULL ALL THE WAY.

BUT PAT CURRAN IS FINDING HIS

RANGE IN THE SECOND ROUND.

MORE HEAD MOVING.

STEPPING BACK IN.

PITBULL'S LANDING THOSE INSIDE

KICKS.

CONTINUALLY, CURRAN IS NOT

CHECKING THEM.

>> NOT AT ALL.

>> PAYS DIVIDENDS IN A FIGHT.

OH.

PITBULL IS REALLY TURN TOGETHER

OVER.

THAT WAS A FAST KICK BY PAT

CURRAN, BUT PITBULL, ABLE TO EAT

IT.

>> AND PATRICIO PITBULL.

ANOTHER SIDE KICK, STARTING TO

RACK UP.

WITH THE LEAD LEG.

GREAT THING TO DO.

>> JIMMY, WHY DO YOU THINK

CURRAN IS NOT TRYING TO CHECK

THOSE PITBULL KICKS ON THE

INSIDE?

IT'S OBVIOUSLY NOT SOMETHING YOU

CAN WORK ON IN TRAINING.

BOXING, YOU LEAN MORE HEAVILY ON

THAT LEAD FOOT.

YOU NEED A LIGHT LEAD FOOT IN

ORDER TO CHECK.

NICE.

BOTH LANDING.

WHAT'S COMING OUT OF PITBULL'S

NOSE?

>> DON'T BE SURPRISED.

NOT PULLING UP ON HIM.

VERY FAST.

THAT WAS SOMETHING YOU DIDN'T

SEE A LOT IN ROUND NUMBER ONE.

PAT CURRAN THROWING THAT JAB.

THROWING IN ROUND NUMBER TWO.

FINISHED WITH THE OUTSIDE KICK.

YOU CALLED THAT AT THE START OF

THIS FIGHT.

ROUND NUMBER TWO.

SCHEDULED FOR 5 ROUNDS.

PITBULL, BACK TO HIS FEET.

BELLATOR FEATHER WEIGHT WORLD

TITLE.

TOURNAMENT WINNER, PATRICIO

PITBULL, BRAZILLIAN VERSUS THE

AMERICAN.

BELLATOR 145-POUND CHAMPION PAT

CURRAN.

PAT CURRAN'S BEING A LITTLE MORE

THE INITIATOR.

BEHIND THANE'S, STIFF JAB.

NOW, TRYING TO GET TO THE INSIDE

INSIDE.

STEPPING OUT TO THE RIGHT.

THIS SECOND DOWN ROUND, PAT

CURRAN, STRAIGHT PUNCHES.

PITBULL, TRYING TO COME IN.

OH, MAN.

BEAUTIFUL JAB.

>> BLOOD COMING OUT OF THE NOSE

BEAUTIFUL KICK, RIGHT ON THE

HEAD.

>> JIMMY, YOU GAVE ROUND ONE

PATRICIO PUTT.

WHAT ABOUT ROUND TWO?

>> ALL TIED UP.

I GAVE THAT ONE TO PAT CURRAN.

MORE EFFECTIVE WITH THE JAB.

OPENED UP JUST A LITTLE BIT.

SO EASILY BLOCKED THERE BY

PITBULL.

FROM THE FOREARM.

HARD TO FIND A WAY IN ON THAT

GUY.

WHAT PITBULL DID EARLIER, WORK

BEING THE BODY, THE RIBS, THE

LEG KICK.

>> JIMMY, WE TALKED ABOUT BOTH

FIGHTERS BEING SO EXPLOSIVE AND

DYNAMIC.

THEY'RE BOTH INCREDIBLY STAND UP

IN THEIR DEFENSE.

PITBULL A LITTLE ATE MORE --

HEAD IS STILL A LITTLE BIT UP.

TRYING TO STAY IN THE POCKET IN

ROUND 3.

IN ROUND TWO.

BLOOD COMING FROM PATRICIO'S

NOSE.

THIRD ROUND.

EITHER GUY HAS REALLY STRIVED

THE TAKEDOWN.

EITHER GUY HAS REALLY TRIED TO

WRESTLE.

PAT CURRAN HAS USED HIS AGGRESS

AGGRESSIVE SKILLS TO KEEP THE

FIGHT.

HE DOESN'T OFTEN TAKE A SHOT.

PITBULL.

WE'LL TRY TO PUMP THE JAB RIGHT

BACK.

THE RIGHT HAND, FOLLOWED BY THE

COUNTER LEFT.

THEY ARE NOT FULLY GETTING --

OH,!

GOOD HEAD KICK.

AND HE STILL WOBBLES CURRAN.

THAT FORCE ON THAT KICK, EVEN

THOUGH CURRAN CAUGHT IT, IT

STILL BACKED HIM OFF.

NOW PITBULL IS TRYING TO PUMP UP

THE VOLUME. HE STUCK UNDER THE

LEFT HAND. THAT'S BEAUTIFUL

TIMING.

NOW GETTING AGGRESSIVE

CALIFORNIA CROWD REACTED TO HIM,

BUT REALLY DIDN'T BOTHER.

PITBULL.

RIGHT TO THE BODY.

IF THEY GO ONE FOR ONE, PITBULL

HITS HARDER.

HAS TO HIT THREE, FOUR,

COMBINATION.

ONE-2 FROM PATRICIO PITBULL.

ONE THING I'M SURPRISED -- IS

THE PARTICIPATE.

ROOM FOR FAINT JABS, TRYING TO

GET A REACT COMMITTEE OUT OF

PITBULL.

AND REFEREE KEEPING THIS FIGHT

MOVING.

>> YOU HEARD A THAT YOU HAD WHEN

PITBULL LANDED THAT SHOT.

THAT'S WHAT I MEAN.

HE WANTS TO GO ONE, THREE, FOUR,

OUT.

THAT'S WHAT HE'S GOOD AT.

NICE JAB.

PITBULL NOW BLOOD RIGHT ON THE

CHECK BONE.

I THINK IT'S FROM THAT JAB.

JIMMY, YOU AND I TALKED ABOUT B

IT ALL THE TIME IN A VERY CLOSE

FIGHT.

OFTENTIMES, IT'S NOT CORRECT.

THE JUDGES WILL -- PITBULL,

BLEEDING OUT OF HIS NOSE IN

ROUND TWO.

NOW, BLEEDING FROM HIS LEFT EYE,

RIGHT OFF THE CHEEKBONE HERE IN

ROUND THREE.

NO DAMAGE DONE IN ROUND NUMBER

TWO.

DOESN'T AFFECT THE VISION TO

HAVE YOUR EYE CUT.

>> 35 SECONDS REMAINING IN ROUND

THREE, SCHEDULED FOR -- 5 MINUTE

ROUNDS.

SO FAR, WE'RE SEEING T THE AGGRESS

AGGRESSOR IN THE ROUND IS THE

GUY WIN-WINNING BY A SCORECARD.

THE AGGRESSOR IN THIS ROUND HAS

BEEN PITBULL.

A BIG KICK BY PITBULL, YOU SEE

HERE, GETTING THAT RANGE BACK.

I'VE SEEN KICKS LIKE THAT BREAK

FOREARMS BEFORE.

THIS IS THE 19TH PRO MMA FIGHT

FOR THAT MAN, PATRICIO PITBULL,

HIS FIRST TIME PASSIVE USED

THREE ROUNDS.

20 SECOND PRO MMA FIGHT FOR PAT

CURRAN, JUST HIS SECOND TIME AT

THREE ROUNDS.

JIMMY, HOW DO YOU HAVE THIS VERY

CLOSE FIGHT SCORED?

>> I GAVE THE LAST ROUND TO

PITBULL.

29-28.

LIKE I SAID, THE AGGRESSOR IN

EVERY ROUND HAS BEEN THE ONE

TAKING IT ON MY SCORECARD.

>> BODY SHOTS LANDED BY PITBULL.

>> LOOK AT THAT COMBINATION.

1],TWO, THREE LEG KICK.

THAT'S BEEN WORKING FOR HIM.

A KICK THAT'S BLOCKED.

CERTAINLY TO HIS LEFT.

KICKING THAT BLOCK -- BLOCKING

THAT KICK BY PITBULL.

PAT CURRAN LANDED THAT HIGHLIGHT

REEL HEAD KICK.

HE IS DANGEROUS.

NICE RIGHT HAND.

HE WAS ON THE NOSE.

VISION GOES WAY, YOU CAN'T SEE

ANYTHING.

WHO WILL EMERGE FROM THIS FIGHT

AS THE BELLATOR WORLD CHAMP ION?

WILL IT BE PATRICIO PITBULL OR

WILL PAT PAT CURRAN BE

SUCCESSFUL IN HIS FIRST TITLE

DEFENSE.

PITBULL CAME OUT WELL, AND PAT

CURRAN, A LITTLE MORE AGGRESS

AGGRESSIVE.

GET ON IT NOW.

ANOTHER GOOD BODY SHOT.

CUT UNDER THE LEFT EYE, UNDER

THE CHEEKBONE, AND A LOT

SWELLING AND NOW, IT'S FORMING

UNDER HIS RIGHT EYE.

TIME CALLED BY JASON HERZAR FROM

LEFT TO RIGHT, CAUGHT HIM WITH

THE BRIDGE OF THE FOREHEAD.

PAT CURRAN IS AT HIS BEST.

THAT LANDING.

PITBULL, HIT RIGHT BACK.

BODY, BODY HEAD.

KEEPING PITBULL GUESS GUESSING.

SPINNING BACK KICK BY PATRICIO

PITBULL.

A TAKE DOWN WE HAVE SEEN.

>> DRIVING HARD TO THE SINGLE

LEG IS THE BRAZILLIAN BLACK BELT

PATRICIO PITBULL.

HE COULD INN THE GET IT.

REMEMBER PAT CURRAN HAS THE

ADVANTAGE.

HE'S GOT TWO ROUNDS.

GOING TO TAKE THIS FIGHT OVER.

>> JIMMY, DO YOU THINK THAT WAS

A SIGN OF FRUSTRATION ON THIS

THING.

>> DEFINITELY.

DON'T GO FOR A TAKE DOWN WITH A

STRIKE GOING YOUR WAY.

BODY SHOT WITH THE RIGHT HAND BY

CURRAN.

1:20 OF THIS WORLD TITLE FIGHT

AT 145 POUNDS.

I CERTAINLY THINK PAT CURRAN HAS

MORE ENERGY IN THIS ROUND THAN

PATRICIO PITBULL.

THE KICK DIDN'T GET THROUGH.

30 SECONDS REMAINING IN ROUND 4.

FAST JAB.

THAT BACKED OFF PATRICIO PITBULL

PITBULL.

FINAL SECONDS OF ROUND NUMBER 4.

STILL NOTHING SETTLED BETWEEN

THESE TWO FIGHTERS.

>> TWO OUTSTANDING FINISHERS

THAT I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD

TO SEEING BACK IN THE BELLATOR

CAGE.

REPRESENTING OHIO IN THE

BELLATOR CAGE.

THEY'LL BE THIS YEAR FOR SURE.

HERE'S THE DEEPEST OF DEEP WATER

WATER.

ROUND NUMBER 5.

THE TIME ROUND OF THIS BELLATOR

FEATHER WEIGHT WORLD TITLE FIGHT

FIGHT.

TOURNAMENT WINNER, PATRICIO

PITBULL.

VERSUS THE CHAMPION, PAT CURRAN.

HOW DO YOU HAVE THIS SCORE.

>> I HAVE IT ALL TIED UP.

38-38.

WHO TURNS IT ON.

THAT IS THE KEY HERE.

WILL PITBULL CLAIM THIS WORLD

TITLE.

STRAIGHT JAB.

BETWEEN ROUNDS 4 AND 5, JEFF

CURRAN, PAT'S TRAINER SAID, YOU

DO NOT WANT TO LET THIS FIGHT GO

TO THE JUDGES.

PITBULL, PAT CURRAN, TAKE-DOWN

DEFENSE.

THE RIGHT HAND, CURRAN.

AFTER HE GOT HIT WITH THAT JAB.

THE DOUBLE JAB.

FINISHED THAT COMBINATION FROM

PITBULL.

ON THE RIGHT JAB, RIGHT DOWN THE

PIKE.

PARTIALLY THROUGH.

BIGGER HERE IN ROUND 5.

PAT CURRAN,ING TAKING HIS

OPPONENT APART FROM THE OUTSIDE.

20 REMAINING IN THIS FINAL ROUND

OF THIS BELLATOR WORLD TITLE

FIGHT.

PITBULL'S GOT TO LET IT ALL HANG

OUT IF HE WANTS TO WIN THIS

FIGHT AND TAKE THE BELT.

1-2.

UNSUCCESSFUL.

THEY'RE TRYING TO FIRE BACK.

A RIGHT EYE, ALMOST TOTALLY

CLOSED.

MAN, GOOD RIGHT HAND.

PATRICIO COMING FORWARD.

HE CANNOT DEAL WITH THESE JABS,

AND RIGHT NOW, THAT'S THE

PROBLEM WITH PITBULL WHO HAS

PROBLEMS DEALING WITH THE JABS.

EARLIER IN THIS FIGHT, PATRICIO

PITBULL, CONTINUALLY, LANDING

THOSE INSIDE KICKS.

THREE TRAIT LEFT JABS FOR PAT

CURRAN.

1:25.

THE FINAL MINUTE OF THE BELLATOR

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP.

SO CLOSE NO WONDER BOTH OF THESE

MEN LOOK TO CLOSE OUT SOME

VOLUME IN THE CLOSING SECONDS.

IT'S PITBULL WHO HAS TO TURN IT

UP.

WITH THAT LOOKAWAY RIGHT HAND.

BEAUTIFUL JOB.

STEPPING BACK IN.

THE CROWD HERE IS ON ITS FEET.

LANDING ON THE INSIDE.

PITBULL LANDING WITH THE RIGHT

HAND.

END OF THE THIS WORLD TITLE

FIGHT.

OUTSTANDING PERFORMS BY BOTH

FIGHTERS.

[BELL RINGING] GREAT JOB.

GREAT JOB BY BOTH FIGHTERS.

>> THAT'S HOW YOU KICKOFF A CARD

ON FRIDAY.

WILL THAT MAN BE BELLATOR'S

WORLD CHAMP ION PATRICIO PITBULL

OR WILL PAT CURRAN RETAIN HIS

TITLE?

OUR FIGHT REPLAY IS BROUGHT TO

YOU BY THE OUTRAGEOUS COMEDY 43

IN THEATERS, JANUARY 25.

AND I THINK THIS WAS THE KEY TO

THE FIGHT.

THIS IN AND OUT.

THE JAB OF PAT CURRAN.

STRIKE.

AHEAD OF PATRICIO PITBULL.

THE REST OF HIS OFFENSE.

ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE FENCE.

THE TIGHT COMBINATIONS, ALL OF

THIS AROUND THE LEAD JAB.

>> WHEN WE RETURN, WE'LL SEE IF

PAT CURRAN WILL RETAIN HIS TITLE

OR WILL THE NEW CHAMPION BE

PATRICIO PITBULL AND REMEMBER,

THE LIGHT WEIGHT WORLD TITLE

FIGHT STILL TO COME

PAT CURRAN, VERSUS PATRICIO

PITBULL.

CURRAN.

>> THE BELLATOR FEATHER WEIGHT

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT DOES

NOT DISAPPOINT.

SO CLOSE AND PAT CURRAN RETAINS

HIS TITLE BY THE NARROWEST

MARGIN. A SPLIT DECISION WIN.

JIMMY, I THINK CURRAN STRIKING

DEFENSE WITH MAYBE JUST TWO

TYPES FOR PITBULL.

TOO FAST.

PITBULL COULDN'T FIND A WAY

AROUND IT.

JUST 25 YEARS OLD, HE NOW HAS 18

THAT'S WHAT A FIGHTER HAS TO DO.

JUST GO FOR IT.

PEOPLE ASK ME WHY I KEEP

FIGHTING.

IT'S NOT JUST A GOOD TIME, IT'S

MILLER TIME.

>> HIS LAST TWO FIGHTS, MICHAEL

CHANDLER, BACK, HE KNOWS HOW TO

EXPLODE.

HE'LL HAVE TO CATCH HIM COMING

IN.

HAWN IS IN THE BLACK TRUNKS,

CHANDLER IS IN THE RED TRUNKS.

ONE THING IS HE'S REALLY ADHDED

PICKS TO HIS ARSENAL.

ONE THING, CHANDLER'S HANDS,

VERY LOW, ALMOST IN KARATE

STANCE.

A GUY WITH A POWERFUL HAND.

TWO OUTSTANDING ATHLETES BY

THEIR OWN ADMISSION, JIMMY, SAID

I HAD NO IDEA HOW TO PUNCH UNTIL

I STARTED TRAINING IN MMA.

PICKED IT UP QUICKLY.

BOTH ARE VERY GIFTED ATHLETES.

THROWING THE UPPER CUT AS

CHANDLER STEPPED IN.

ONE THING ABOUT MICHAEL

CHANDLER, NEVER A NATIONAL

CHAMPION, NEVER EVEN ATAT

CHAMPION IN HIGH SCHOOL.

ALL-AMERICAN.

BASED ON HIS WORK ETHICS.

A SINGLE LEG.

>> MAN, THAT WAS A LOT MORE THAN

I EXPECTED.

GOT THE TAKEDOWN, AND MAN.

LOW START FOR HAWN.

COACH KEVIN LANDRY.

>> YOU KNOW HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S

DOING OFF HIS BACK.

BUT CHANDLER, STILL TOUGH ON

TOP.

>> BIG ELBOW FROM CHANDLER.

TURN AND THE PUSH-OFF FROM HAWN.

NOT WHERE RICK HAWN WANTS TO BE

ON HIS BACK WITH MICHAEL

CHANDLER ON TOP.

WE TALKED ABOUT THE GRAPPLING.

ONE PLACE I DON'T WANT TO BE IS

ON MY BACK.

FROM DOING AND SUBMISSION WORK,

IT'S ON THE TOP.

YOU SEE HIM NOT LOCKING HIS

GUARD UP.

NOT AGAINST FELLOWLING.

LOCKING UP BOTH ARMS.

IN A VERY TIGHT GUARD.

CONTROLLED, LOOKING FOR A STAND

UP HERE.

JUST PEPPERING THOSE SHOTS TO

THE BODY.

ONE THING THOUGH, RICK HAWN,

FROM HIS JUDO BACKGROUND, THEY

HAVE SOME SUBMISSION. A LOT OF

THEM ARE FROM THE TOP.

THEY'LL THROW YOU AND GO

STRAIGHT TO AN ARM BAR.

THEY DON'T HAVE A LOT OF

POSITIONS ON THEIR BACK LIKE A

JIU-JITSU WOULD.

AND I KNOW YOU'VE DONE A LOT

JIU-JITSU SINCE THEN.

TAKING A CHANCE, TRYING TO GET

UP HERE.

>> KEEPING HIS HAND ON THE

GROUND.

ANGLE OFF HITTING HIM IN THE

HEAD.

HE'S GOT TO SELLOUT AT SOME

POINT.

HE'S GOT TO TAKE THE RISK AND

POP UP.

CAN'T STAY HERE.

KNEE TO THE BODY.

AS LONG AS THAT'S HANDED DOWN.

YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE A RISK AT

SOME POINT.

AND HE DID.

CHANDLER, WHOA.

TRYING TO IMPLEMENT HIS JUDO

THERE.

>> GREAT DEFENSE BY CHANDLER.

BIG SWING.

CHANDLER, PUSHING THE PACE.

HE'S THE BETTER ATHLETE.

HIGH TEMPO HERE IN THE OPENING

ROUND OF THE BELLATOR LIGHT

WEIGHT WORLD TITLE FIGHT,

SCHEDULED FOR 5 ROUNDS.

CHANDLER MISSING WITH THE UPPER

CUT.

THE BIGGEST PERSONALITY IN OUR

SPORT, JOE WEAREN.

>> WE HAVE GOT KING MO NOW.

>> GOOD POINT.

NICE JAB BY CHANDLER.

>> ON THE SCORECARD FOR ROUND 1.

>> TECH 10-9, MICHAEL CHANNELED

CHANNELEDLER, HE PUSHED THE

PACE.

I LIKE IN BETWEEN ROUNDS FROM

HIS CORNER THEY SAY, DON'T GET

IN THOSE BRAWLS.

BUT THIS IS THE END OF THE ROUND

ROUND.

IS GOT THE TAKEDOWN IN ROUND

ONE.

>> COMMAND CHANDLER ON CUE.

TAKING THAT ONE DOWN THERE.

>> LOOK AT THAT.

HAD THE WIDE DEFENSIVE AND DOWN

BY CHANDLER.

THAT'S ONE THING I DID NOT

EXPECT.

I THOUGHT IT WAS A VICIOUS HIT

LIKE THAT UP AGAINST THE FENCE.

USING JUDO TO STAY ON HIS FEET.

CHANDLER, LIFTING HIM IN THE

AIR.

YOU KNOW, CHANDLER, JUST DOUBLE

LEG DRIVE, PICKS YOU UP AND AM

SLAYS YOU.

VERY DIFFERENT STYLE OF

JIU-JITSU.

>> IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING TONIGHT

TONIGHT'S PREMIERE OF BELLATOR M

MM ALIVE ON SPIKE, IT'S KING MO

UNRIVALED.

>> YOU WILL SEE KING MO NEXT

THURSDAY NIGHT, BEGINNING

10:00 P.M. EASTERN TIME.

BELLATOR LIVE ON SPIKE.

CHANDLER IN BETWEEN ROUNDS SAYS,

HE'S JUST STALLOG THE GROUND.

JUST STALLING.

HE'S NOT GOING TO GO FOR

ANYTHING.

KEEP THE STRIKES COMING.

>> JIMMY, FROM A NEUTRAL

PERSPECTIVE, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE

TO SEE MORE OF RICK HAWN AT THIS

POINT IF.

>> WELL, THE THING IS, HE'S GOT

TO THROW A LITTLE ATE MORE.

YOU KIND OF LOAD THE RIGHT HAND.

HE'S DOING A GOOD JOB WITH THE

LEFT.

THAT'S A FAST ONE.

HIT CHANDLER.

AND CHANDLER, TRYING TO LAND THE

ELBOW, JUST MISSED RIGHT THERE.

LANDING BIG STRIKES.

>> ONE HOOK IN.

HARD TO TAKE IT BACK UP AGAINST

THE FENCE.

POWER HALF NELSON.

REALLY CRANKS THE NECK.

SOMETHING THAT WE RARELY SEE IN

MMA.

THE FULL SUPLEX AND NOW, TO TAKE

DOWN CHANDLER.

AND LOOKING FOR THE REAR NAKED

CHOKE.

>> HE MIGHT HAVE IT.

>> THAT IS IT.

AND MICHAEL CHANDLER RETAINS HIS

BELT.

NOT JUST SUCCESSFULLY,

DOMINANTLY AGAINST RICK HAWN.

THAT WAS UNEXPECTED REMEMBER THE

NAME, MICHAEL CHANDLER, THAT'S A

GREAT PERFORMANCE.

HE'S JUST 26 YEARS OLD.

11 VICTORIES, AND 11MMA FIGHTS.

AND HE THE WORLD CHAMP ION.

>> MAN, A SECOND-ROUND FINISH

OVER RICK HAWN.

>> BETTY CHANDLER, ELATED IN HER

SON'S PERFORMANCE.

>> MICHAEL CHANDLER'S ABILITY TO

GET INSIDE, AND GET THE TAKEDOWN

TAKEDOWN, WHEN I WERE UP AGAINST

THE FENCE.

THAT SINGLE EDGE, JUST PICKED

HIM UP.

DROPPED HIM ON HIS BUTT.

HIM.

END OF THE FIGHT.

YOU SEE HERE, ONCE THE ARM WAS

UNDER THE CHIN LOOK HERE, HE

JUST CRANKED IT, JUST LIKE EDDIE

ALVAREZ.

ALL POWER, ALL HIT PRESSURE, AND

THAT WAS THE FINISH.

ONCE AGAIN, LOOK AT THIS.

ARM UNDER THE NECK AND LOOK AT

THAT HIP PRESSURE.

BENDING RICK HAWN ALL THE WAY

BACK WITH HIS HIP PRESSURE.

MAN, BEAUTIFUL JOB BITE CHAMP.

>> HE SUBMITTED EDDIE ALVAREZ TO

WIN THIS TITLE AND HE SUBMITS

RICK HAWN WHEN WE DEFEND IT.

WHEN WE RETURN, JIMMY SMITH WILL

PERFORMANCE BY THAT MAN, MICHAEL

CHANDLER.

HERE'S MICHAEL WILLIAMS.

BEAT UP THAT MICHAEL CHANDLER

THAT WON THE BELT.

YOU WERE RIGHT.

IMPROVEMENT TO DO.

>> BUT THE IMPROVEMENTS YOU'VE

DONE SO FAR THAT YOU TALKED

ABOUT, MY JIU-JITSU IS BETTER,

ANOTHER FIGHT IN THE LIGHT

HEAVYWEIGHT TOURNAMENT QUARTER

FINAL ROUND.

JACOB NOE VERSUS SETH PETRU

PETRUZELLY.

>> MY MIND WAS MADE UP BEFORE I

STEP IN THAT CAME BECAUSE I'M

COMING AT YOU.

GONNA TRY TO KICK MY WAY OUT.

BEEN FIGHTING MY WHOLE LIFE.

MY GRANDMOTHER REALLY LOVED ME.

THE LESSONS THAT SHE TAUGHT ME

IN LIFE, NO MATTER HOW MUCH OF A

BAD SAYS THAT I THINK I AM.

THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH A MAN

FALLING TO HIS KNEES AND ASKING

FOR GOD'S HELP.

I REMEMBER WHEN SHE PASSED AWAY,

WHEN SHE BARELY COULD TALK, SHE

SAID JUST PRAY BEFORE EVERY

FIGHT.

>> THE WINNER, JACOB NOE.

>> I'D LIKE TO TELL MY

GRANDMOTHER, IF SHE WAS WATCHING

ME RIGHT NOW, THANK YOU FOR

LOVING ME WHEN IT SEEMED LIKE

NOBODY ELSE DID.

THINGS HAVE CHANGED SINCE I'VE

GOTTEN OLDER.

I'VE GOT GIRLLESS.

THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL, AND THEY TELL

PEOPLE THAT'S MY DADDY, LIKE

THEY'RE PROUD OF ME, I DON'T

NEED ANYTHING ELSE.

I USED TO DO IT FOR MYSELF.

I'M NOT DOING IT FOR MYSELF.

I'M DOING IT FOR THEM.

I'M READY TO DO SOMETHING FOR

THEM.

>> PETRUZELLI IS NOW FOCUSED ON

WHAT COULD BE HIS FINAL RUN IN

THE WORLD TITLE.

>> THE SILVER BACK IN THE WILD,

IN THE ANIMAL KINGDOM, HAS THE

SMALLEST PENIS TO THE BODY

RATIO.

UNFORTUNATELY FOR ME, MY

NICKNAME IS THE SILVER BACK.

I GOT DUBBED WITH THE NICKNAME

FOR REASONS.

, I GUESS YOU CAN CALL MY

SIGNIFICANT MOVE IS THE MONKEY

HAMMER FIRST.

I REALLY LIKE TO TRY TO END ALL

MY FIGHTS LIKE THAT.

I ALWAYS LIKE TO PUT MY HANDS

TOGETHER AND HAMMER FIST

SMASHES.

I JUST CALL IT THE MONKEY SMASH.

IT'S APPROPRIATE.

I'M USED ON TO FIGHTING BIG ARE

GUYS.

KNOCKING OUT KIM BOW SLICE.

I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO

ADDING A FEW MORE NAMES TO THAT

LIST.

WITH BABALU IN THE TOURNAMENT, I

COULD COME UP FROM BEHIND, SNEAK

ATTACK STYLE BE.

I FEEL VERY, VERY CONFIDENT IN

MY ABILITIES.

I FEEL THIS LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT IS GOING TO BE MY

FINAL.

I TURNED PRO IN JANUARY OF 2000.

I FEEL MY 13 YEARS OF MIXED

MARTIAL ARTS, IT'S LIKE I'M

RUNNING LAPS, NEVER CROSSING

THAT FINISH LINE.

WHEN I DO GET THAT BELT AND MY

HAND IS RAISED, IT'S GOING TO

FEEL LIKE I FINALLY CROSS

CROSSED THE FINISH LINE, THE

WHITE ROPE IS THERE, AND I

FINALLY CAME TO WHERE I WANT TO

BE IN MIXED MARTIAL ARTS.

I'M GETTING THIS BELT.

>> THAT HAS MY NAME WRITTEN ALL

OVER IT, AND I'MING FOR ASSUERIO

SILVA MAN.

>> WOW, I KNOW A LOT MORE ABOUT

SETH PETRUZELLI THAN I EVER

THOUGHT I WOULD.

HE'S UP NEXT, INSIDE THE

BELLATOR CAGE, VERSUS JACOB NOE.

WE'LL SEE HOW SCARY NOE IS WHEN

THE CAME DOOR SHUTS.

>> SETH PETRUZELLI MOMENTS AWAY

FROM STEPPING INTO THE BELLATOR

CAGE TO FACE JACOB NOE FOR A

PLACE IN THE LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT

SEMIFINALS.

NOE, SUPREMELY CONFIDENT

ENTERING THIS FIGHT.

THIS WOULD BE A CAREER DEFINING

WIN FOR NOE.

PETRUZELLI, 14-6.

WE TALKED ABOUT KIM BOW SLICE.

I'M GOING TO DISCOUNT THAT

VICTORY.

>> 14 AND 6.

PETRUZELLI, FOUR BIG FIGHTS, HAS

FOUGHT BETTER TALENT.

>> IN THE TOUGHEST TOURNAMENT IN

SPORT THREE.

UNLEASH YOUR WARRIOR.

INTRODUCING THE RED CORNER 6'3"

WEIGHING 206 POUNDS, AS A

PROFESSIONAL, THE ESTIMATED

PROJECT WINS, JUST 1 LOSS,

JACOB NO, I THINK WILL MEET THAT

AGGRESSION WITH AGGRESSION.

ROUND NUMBER ONE.

THEY'RE GOING TO GET RIGHT TO IT

IT.

TONIGHT'S FIGHT IS BROUGHT TO

YOU BY MILLER TIME.

IT'S NOT JUST A GOOD TIME, IT'S

MILLER TIME.

A VERY HARD PUNCHER.

JIU-JITSU, ABLE TO TAKE DOWN

HERE RIGHT IN FRONT OF US.

TRYING THE DEFENSE.

A LITTLE SURPRISED.

A LITTLE ATE MORE FOR A TAKEDOWN

TAKEDOWN, BUT COMMITTED TO IT.

TRYING TO KICK OUT THE LEG.

A LOT OF WEIGHT ON THE HIPS.

HE'S JACOB NOE.

GIVING UP ON THAT LEG.

IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA FOR THE

KICKING GAME.

IT WAS SO EFFECTIVE AGAINST RICO

RODRIGUEZ.

I'M HAHN WELOCK. WE'RE SO GLAD

YOU WERE WITH US, FOR BELLATOR M

MMA, LIVE ON SPIKE.

WE WILL BE WITH YOU EVERY

THURSDAY NIGHT, LIVE, AT

10:00 P.M. EASTERN TIME.

I DIDN'T SEE IT.

TOO BAD.

AND THAT'S CORRECT REFEREEING

FROM JASON HERZAW.

SIDE KICK FROM PETRUZELLI.

BOTH MEN LOOKING FOR A PLACE IN

THIS LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT IN THE FINAL 4.

COMING THROUGH WITH THE LEFT

JAB.

HE'S COUNTERED WITH THE RIGHT.

CHECKED HIS SCALP TO SEE IF HE

WAS BLEEDING.

DID YOU CATCH THAT, GINNY?

>> YES, I DID.

HE HAS TO KEEP THOSE HANDS HIGH

AND TIGHT.

HERE'S THE SHOT TO PETRUZELLI.

GOOD SPIN-AROUND.

NOE NOW, TAKING THE BACK LEG.

PETRUZELLI JUST COVERING UP.

AND REFEREE TAKING A REALLY

CLOSE LOOK.

AND JACOB NOE GETS THE WIN.

T.K.O. ROUND ONE.

>> AND PETRUZELLI IS GRIPPING

HIS LEFT KNEE.

I THINK HIS KNEE WENT OUT ON HIM

HIM.

GREAT WIN FOR JACOB NOE MAN, HE

UNLOADED ONCE HE HAD A CONFIDENT

POSITION.

THAT EYE, ALMOST COMPLETELY

SHUT.

LOOKS LIKE A GIGANTIC MATT

HUGHES.

HAS THE SAME EXACT FACE AS MATT

HUGHES ON A BIGGER BODY.

TONIGHT'S FIGHT REPLAY IS

BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE OUTRAGEOUS

COMEDY "43" IN THEATERS YEN 25.

LOOK AT THESE LAST HANDS.

NO ATTEMPT FROM SETH.
