AS BUTLER SAID, I WANT TO

SHOWCASE MY SKILLS.

I'M A YOU TOO MIXED MARTIAL

ARTS.

YOU GOT TONIGHT.

AND TRAP THE ARM.

AND GROUND AND POUND, VERY HEAVY

WSH HANDED.

SHORT ELBOW.

WITH THE HAND FROM BUTLER.

TRYING TO SIT UP AND THROUGH,

AND NOT TO USE THAT RIGHT HAND.

>> BUTLER, TRAPPING THE ARM OF

ROSSBOROUGH WITH HIS KNEE.

IF HE GETS FEISTY, HE CAN STAND

UP AND GET OUT.

LITTLE ADJUSTMENT TO HIS GAME.

HELD BY NICK ROSSBOROUGH.

A LOT OF DEFENSE RIGHT NOW ON

HIS HIP.

A LOT OF POISE HERE.

NOT TRYING TO RUSH ANYTHING.

NOT GOING CRAZY WITH HIS

PUNCHES.

BEING MORE METHODICAL.

KEITH BUTLER, DRIVING WITH HIS

HEAD.

ELIMINATING THAT SPACE.

>> AND PUSHING UP.

PUSHING OFF.

USE THE DEFENSE TO GET BACK ON

HIS FEET.

>> HE HE WOULD HAVE A BIG

ADVANTAGE.

BUT BUTLER, ROSSBOROUGH'S FAN.

>> SCORING.

WITH THAT RIGHT HAND.

>> AND GOOD LEFT HAND.

THAT DROPPED BUTLER.

THAT HURT BUTLER AND HURT HIM

BAD.

CURLING UP HERE.

ONE HOOK.

LEFT HOOK, DROPPED RAFAEL

BUTLER.

AND THIS IS WHERE YOU FIND OUT

HOW A GUY FEELS WITH ADVERSITY.

BIG HEAD WEIGHT ON HIM.

BOTH HOOKS IN.

DOES HE HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO

GET OUT OF THESE POSITIONS.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT ROSSBOROUGH

SAID HE WOULD DO.

I'M GOING TO TEST HIS HEART,

TEST HIS ALL-AROUND MMA GAME.

>> STILL ROSSBOROUGH.

BUTLER ROLLING.

ROSSBOROUGH ROLLING RIGHT WITH

HIM.

SO REAR NAKED CHOKE TO FINISH

THE TIGHT IN HIS BELLATOR DEBUT.

NOW HE HAS HIM UNDER THE NECK.

HE CAN ROCK HIS HANDS.

HE CAN FINISH THIS.

BUTLER ABLE TO KEEP HIM FROM

LOCKING HANDS.

REFEREE, TAKING A REALLY CLOSE

LOOK.

REACHING FOR HIS FEET.

YOU CANNOT DO THAT.

OPENS UP THE NET.

ROSSBOROUGH IS LOOKING FOR THE

REAR NAKED, AS DOES RAFAEL

BUTLER.

CRANKING ON THE JAW.

WHOA.

HEADBUTT.

THAT IS ILLEGAL.

CANNOT DO THAT.

THAT WAS FRAGRANT.

>> TIME CALLED BY GRAHAM BETTIS.

TIME-OUT.

GO TO A NEUTRAL CORNER.

>> THAT WAS AN OBVIOUS HEADBUTT.

>> GOING TO STAND UP --

>> RIGHT HERE, YEAH.

>> CLEAR HEADBUTT.

>> ARE YOU OKAY?

>> NOW THAT'S PRETTY FLAGRANT.

I WOULD BE SURPRISED IF THEY

DIDN'T TICK A POINT FOR THAT.

>> EVENING CLOSING HIS EYES

BEFORE HE DID IT.

HE KNEW HE HE HE WAS GOING TO

HIT HIM.

THAT WAS OUT OF FRUSTRATION,

SHAWN.

>> COME ON IN.

POSITION CALLED BY GRAHAM BETTIS

TO LOOK AT NICK ROSSBOROUGH.

LOW BLOW GETS YOU FIVE MINUTES

FOR A QUOTE UNQUOTE REASONABLE

AMOUNT OF TIME.

REASONABLE BY BETTIS.

HAD HIS BACK.

CURLED UP.

LOOK HERE.

CLOSES HI EYES AND THROWS IT

BACK.

THERE'S NO POSITIONAL ADVANTAGE

THAT COMES FROM DOING THAT.

TRYING TO DO SOMETHING ELSE.

LOOKS LIKE A CLEAR HEADBUTT TO

ME.

>> ARE THEY GOING TO CONTINUE?

>> GO TO YOUR CORNER OVER THERE,

SIR.

>> BETTIS TAKES THE POINT.

HE'S GOING TO.

>> YOU READY TO CONTINUE?

>> YOU READY TO CONTINUE?

>> I COMPLETELY DISAGREE.

HE HAD HIS BACK.

THEY WERE ON THE GROUND.

HAD BOTH HOOKS IN.

AND HE HEADBUTTED THEM AND GOT

OUT OF IT.

THEY SHOULD NOT START BACK AGAIN

ON THE FEET.

CLEAR ADVANTAGE FOR RAFAEL

BUTLER.

>> HE WAS ON HIS BACK --

>> WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE FROM

STANDING.

YOU READY?

YOU READY?

FIGHT!

>> I COMPLETELY DISAGREE WITH

THE REFEREE ON THIS ONE.

COMPLETELY.

>> I AGREE WITH YOU.

>> RAFAEL BUTLER IS A KNOCKOUT

MACHINE.

HE HE HAS THE ADVANTAGE BY

HEADBUTTING SOMEONE.

>> YOU SHOULD NOT GAIN ADVANTAGE

THROUGH A FOUL.

THIS IS BAD.

AND THAT EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED.

>> IN THE CORNER THERE.

>> MORE FROM ROSSBOROUGH.

FINISHING THE CLOSING SECONDS OF

ROUND ONE.

BUTLER SWINGING BACK.

>> UPPERCUT FROM RAFAEL BUTLER.

BIG SHOTS IN ROUND 1.

>> RELAX.

RELAX, OKAY?

KEEP THIS FIGHT WHERE YOU WANT

TO KEEP THIS FIGHT.

RELAX.

KEEP YOUR HANDS UP.

I NEED YOU TO COUNTER WITH SOME

JOINTS, ALL RIGHT?

COUNTER WITH SOME.

STUN HIM.

STUN HIM.

>> LEFT HOOK.

PUT BUTLER ON RUBBER LEGS.

ALMOST FINISHED HIM WITH THE

RIGHT HAND.

THAT LEAPING LEFT HOOK RIGHT ON

THE JAW.

LOOK AT THE RIGHT HAND ON THE

FOREHEAD.

STILL SNAPS HIS HEAD BACK.

AEP THE END OF THE ROUND,

WEREN'T SURE IF WE WOULD SEE THE

BELL, BUT WE DID.

BOTH GUYS GOING FOR THE

KNOCKOUT.

CRAZY FINISH TO THAT FIRST

ROUND.

>> RAFAEL BUTLER, 2004 NATIONAL

GOLDEN GLOVES CHAMPION.

PRO BOXER.

35 WINS, 28 KOs.

ENTERING HIS FIGHT A PERFECT

8-0.

EIGHT FINISHES.

ROUND 1 WITH NICK ROSSBOROUGH.

>> ONE POINT DEDUCTION, JIMMY,

SCORE CARD ROUND 1.

>> 10-8, ROSSBOROUGH.

WITH BUTLER WITH A POINT

DEDUCTION.

10-9.

LOST A POINT WITH THE HEADBUTT.

FOR THE RECORD, I STILL DISAGREE

WITH THE CALL.

LETTING THE GUY GO WITH HEAD

TROUBLE.

THIS IS WHERE IT STARTED.

WHERE THE FIRST ROUND STARTED.

BUTLER ON TOP WORKING EFFICIENT

GROUND AND POUND.

AND LANDING SOME GOOD SHOTS.

STAYING TIGHT.

TRYING TO GO TO WORK WITH HEAVY

HAND FROM HIS HIP.

AND ONCE AGAIN, STARTING OUT

DOING THE RIGHT THING.

TRAPPING THAT ARM.

AND LAND THAT RIGHT HAND.

THIS SUNDAY, SEASON FINALE

FOLLOWED BY AN ALL NEW EPISODE.

EASTERN TIME, ONLY ON SPIKE.

TRYING TO CAGE WALK.

IN THE PAST, SHOWING OUTSTANDING

GROUND AND POUND.

>> BUTLER, SAID, LOOK, THERE ARE

A LOT OF HEAVYWEIGHTS WHO HIT

VERY HARD.

SEPARATE THE STRIKENER THIS

SPORT BY PUNCHING ACCURATELY.

NOT STANDING IN ON THE GROUND.

RIGHT NOW, RESPECT THE POWER OF

ROSSBOROUGH.

ROSSBOROUGH HURT BADLY IN THE

FIRST ROUND, MORE THAN ONCE.

>> NO WARNING TO BUTLER.

NOT DOING A WHOLE LOT WITH THIS

POSITION.

REFEREE IS PRETTY TOLERANT.

YOU KNOW, LOOKING FOR THE

STAND-UP FROM BETTIS.

IF RAFAEL WINS THE NEXT ROUNDS

TONIGHT, HE IS LOOKING AT RAW.

THROUGH THE ARM BAR, BUTLER.

AND ON THE HEAD.

GOING BACK TO MORE POSITION.

>> ROSSBOROUGH LAYS AGAINST THE

FENCE BUT NOT EXPLODING.

1:55 REMAINING IN ROUND 2.

MUCH DIFFERENT TEMPO THAN WHAT

WE SAW IN ROUND 1.

>> THAT IS BUTLER NOT WANTING TO

STAND.

>> BUTLER TRYING TO YANK OUT THE

KIMORA.

LOSING GRIP CONTROL.

>> ROSSBOROUGH HAS TO EXPLODE.

MIGHT BE EXHAUSTED AT THIS

POINT.

BUT HE CANNOT STAY DOWN HERE.

LETTING THIS ROUND SLIP AWAY.

ROSSBOROUGH BEING CONSERVATIVE.

TIGHT WITH HIS PUNCHES.

STAYING TIGHT.

FINAL MINUTE, ROUND NUMBER TWO.

NEON RED.

TRYING TO SHOWCASE HIS

GRAPPLING.

ALREADY IMPRESSIVE STRIKING.

>> THING IS, ROSSBOROUGH HAS TO

HAVE AN ANSWER FOR THIS KIND OF

ATTACK.

RAFAEL BUTLER --

>> NONE AT ALL.

>> GRAHAM BETTIS.

>> FINAL SECONDS ROUND NUMBER 2.

ROSSBOROUGH HAS SHOWN HIS OWN

VERY EFFECTIVE STRIKING.

THAT WAS IN ROUND 1.

FINAL SECOND NOW ROUND 2.

AND THERE'S THE BELL.

>>> FROM ROUND 1, THIS IS A

HEADBUTT, FLAGRANT HEADBUTT BY

RAFAEL BUTLER.

COST HIM A POINT.

BUT THE REFEREE STARTED THEM UP

ON THE FEET.

IT GOT HIM OUT OF THAT POSITION.

HE HAD HIS BACK TAKEN.

INEXCUSABLE TO ME.

IF YOU'RE ENCOURAGING SOMEONE TO

BREAK THE RULES.

IF I'M IN AN ARM BAR AND I BITE

THE GUY, I GET OUT OF THE ARM

BAR BUT I DON'T LOSE THE FIGHT.

>> I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH THAT.

SHOULDN'T GAIN AN ADVANTAGE IN

OUR SPORT BY USE OF A FOUL.

>> LAST TIME, IT WAS BUTLER,

10-9.

19-18.

RIGHT NOW FOR ROSSBOROUGH, HE

NEEDS THE GAS RIGHT NOW TO

FINISH THIS FIGHT.

HE JUST FELL TO THE GROUND

EXHAUSTED.

IRONIES OF THIS FAT, BUTLER'S 35

WINS AS A PRO BOXER, YET ALMOST

KNOCKED OUT BY NICK ROSSBOROUGH

ON THE FEET.

ROSSBOROUGH, 14th SUBMISSION.

HAS THE BIG ADVANTAGE OF HIS

GROUND GAME.

YET WHEN THEY WERE ON THE

GROUND, BUTLER HOLDING TOP

POSITION, THROWING HIS STRIKE.

>> ALMOST NOTHING AGAINST THE

FIRST ROUND.

HE IS EXHAUSTED.

ON THE BOTTOM.

NOW HE IS FIGHTING FOR THAT

TAKE.

DOES HE HAVE THE ENERGY TO

FINISH?

I DON'T THINK SO.

>> RAMPAGE JACKSON.

LIVE, NEXT SATURDAY NIGHT.

PAY-PER-VIEW.

BEGINNING AT 10:00 P.M. EASTERN

TIME.

ALL START WITH OUR PRELIMS LIVE

AT 8:00 P.M. EASTERN.

CROWD NOT OVERLY TOLERANT.

>> RAFAEL BUTLER TRYING TO STAY

OUT OF DANGER.

BUT HE IS THE FINISHER OF THE

ROUND OR ELSE HE HAS A DRAW.

>> AND BETTIS TELLS THOSE

FIGHTERS TO STAY BUSY.

>> NOW MOVING INTO SIDE CONTROL.

>> I'M SURPRISED HOW LITTLE

ROSSBOROUGH HAS IN HIS TANK.

FOR THIS ROUND, HE'S DONE ALMOST

NOTHING.

AFTER A 10-8 ROUND, HE WAS

COMPLETELY SPENT.

RAFAEL BUTLER IS BACK IN THE

FIGHT.

BUTLER ISN'T DOING A WHOLE LOT.

SHORT RIGHT PUNCHES.

>> HE IS HOLDING TOP POSITIONS.

>> HE IS.

BUT ROSSBOROUGH IS NOT EXACTLY

CONTESTING THAT POSITION.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> STRIKER OUTSTRUCK?

ROUND 1.

NOW OUTGRAPPLED IN ROUND 3.

>> SIDE CONTROL.

>> TRYING TO STAY PERFECT IN HIS

MMA CAREER.

8-0 WITH EIGHT FINISHES.

23 PRO MMA WINS.

LOOKING FOR THE BIG UPSET.

>> NOW RAFAEL, TURNING IT ON.

GETS THE FINISH, WOULDN'T TAKE

MUCH FOR THE REFEREE TO STOP THE

FIGHT.

HE IS NOT TURNING IT ON.

WE ARE HEADED TOWARD A DRAW WITH

1:00 LEFT.

EVEN THOUGH ROSSBOROUGH HASN'T

DONE ANYTHING IN THIS ROUND.

>> DO YOU THINK IT IS POSSIBLE

THAT THREE ONTARIO JUDGIS HAS IT

AT 10-8 AND WITH THE POINT

DEDUCTION WOULD MAKE IT 10-7.

ROSSBOROUGH.

>> THEY COULD.

I WOULDN'T CALL IT JUSTIFIED.

HE'S HURT.

LANDING PUNCHES OF HIS OWN.

IT WASN'T A BLOW-OUT ROUND.

I WOULDN'T CALL IT A 10-8 ROUND

WITHOUT THE FOUL.

>> I AGREE.

I THINK YOU SCORED CORRECTLY.

10-9, POINT DEDUCTION, 10-8.

YOU CAN SEE WITH ROSSBOROUGH IN

TROUBLE, SCORING 10-8 AND THEN

10-7.

>> WE DON'T SEE IT OFTEN.

WE AREN'T CLEARLY AS DEFINED AS

BOXING.

>> ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO

UNDERSTAND IS THAT ROSSBOROUGH

CONDITIONING AFTER THE FIRST

ROUND.

>> AND THE FIGHT THAT HE HAD

WON.

>> THAT WAS JUST SECONDS AWAY.

TO BE A VERY INTERESTING FIRST

PART.

THERE'S THE BELL.

SO ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS

BREAK.

WE WILL SEE WHO CLAIMS VICTORY.

NICK ROSSBOROUGH OR RAFAEL

BUTLER.

AND REMEMBER, OUR MAIN EVENT

TONIGHT, IS

>>> FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO MISSED

THE 10-8 WILL ROUND, THIS IS WHY

IT WAS A 10-8.

HE DROPPED BUTLER AND THEN IN A

BRUTAL INTENTIONAL HEADBUTT,

FLAGRANT COST HIM A POINT.

THEN BACK ON THEIR FEET, WHICH I

THOUGHT WAS A HORRIBLE CALL.

ROSSBOROUGH ALMOST FINISHES

BUTLER AT THE END OF THE FIRST

ROUND BUT APPARENTLY THAT WAS

ALL HE HE HAD IN THE TAKE.

NOTHING FROM ROSSBOROUGH.

ROUNDS 2 AND 3.

>> JIMMY, FINAL SCORE CARD.

>> DRAW, 28-28.

CONCEIVABLY RAFAEL BUTLER, LAST

ROUND, 10-8.

NOW ROSSBOROUGH DIDN'T DO THE

DAMAGE I LIKE FOR 10-8 BUT YOU

NEVER KNOW.

>> TO ME THERE IS NO 10-8.

BUT I DON'T THINK THAT IS 10-7.

EITHER.

WE SHALL SEE.

HERE IS MICHAEL WILLIAMS.

>>

MICHAEL WILLIAMS, CONFERRING

WITH THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO

ATHLETIC COMMISSION.

AND JIMMY, YOU AND I KNOW WHAT

DELAYS MEAN IN THIS SPORT.

>> HE WENT IN THE CAGE AND WENT

OUT AGAIN.

NEVER A GREAT SIGN.

THEY SHOULD CALL HIM THE

MATHEMATICIAN.

BECAUSE HE HAS TO DO THIS A LOT.

I KNOW HE IS THE VOICE, THEY

SHOULD CALL HIM PROFESSOR.

HE CHECKS A LOT OF MATH ON THESE

GUYS.

>> HE NEEDS A SCORE KEEPER'S

LICENSE HERE IN ONTARIO.

DELAYS, OF COURSE, MEAN IT IS

NOT A UNANIMOUS DECISION.

IT IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING

ELSE.

SPLIT DRAW.

SPLIT DECISION.

MAJORITY DRAW.

DRAW SOMETHING.

>> LOOK AT MIKE WILLIAMS DOING

THAT WORK.

>> TRYING TO SEE IF THERE WAS A

7 WRITTEN DOWN THERE.

COULDN'T TELL.

ROSSBOROUGH LOOKING FOR THE

BIGGEST WIN OF HIS CAREER.

BUTLER TRYING TO STAY

UNDEFEATED.

>> IF RAFAEL GETS OUT OF THIS

WITHOUT A DRAW, IT WOULD BE

UNDEFEATED.

>> AT THE TABLE WITH MIKE

WILLIAMS.

>> SO THE SUSPENSE CONTINUES.

WHEN WE

>> AN OUTSTANDING CROWD WAITING

ALONG WITH US.

LET'S END THE SUSPENSE HERE WITH

MICHA

MICHAEL WILLIAMS.

>> AS WE HAVE GONE THE DISTANCE

IN THE CAGE, THE JUDGE'S SCORE

CARDS.

BUCKLEY SEEING THE FIGHT 28-27

SCORING THE FIGHT FOR BUTLER.

WHILE YOUR SECOND AND THIRD

JUDGES BOTH SEE THE FIGHT EVEN

AT 28 -28, THE BOUT IS RULED A

MAJORITY DRAW.

>> 28-27 FOR BUTLER, JIMMY?

>> YEAH.

SOMEONE SCORED IT IN THE LAST

ROUND A 10-8 ROUND.

I DIDN'T THINK HE DID THAT KIND

OF DAMAGE.

BUT I THOUGHT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN

A POSSIBILITY.

>> SO MAJORITY DRAW IS RULED.

BUTLER STILL UNDEFEATED.

BUT ENDS HIS WINNING STREAK.

UNHAPPY RESULT FOR BOTH

FIGHTERS.

>> STILL TO COME, WORLD TITLE

SHOT IS ON THE LINE AS GREEN AND

WEICHEL BATTLE FOR THE

TOURNAMENT CHAMPION.

HE SAYS THE PRESSURE IS OFF.

I WANT TO GET TO THE FINAL.

THAT'S WHERE I AM.

THERE'S NO NEXT TIGHT.

WITH HIS OPPONENT, DANIEL

WEICHEL, A SUBMISSION

SPECIALIST.

HE HAS SHOWN HE HAS KNOCK-OUT

POWER ON THE FEET AS WELL.

>> WEICHEL DEFINITELY HAS THE

EDGE AND EXPERIENCE.

IF YOU LOOK AT DES GREEN,

COLLEGE PROFESSIONAL, VERY

ATHLETIC.

>> THE ABILITY TO EXPLODE AND

CONTROL RANGE AND DISTANCE WITH

HIS ATHLETICISM.

WEICHEL HAS TO COUNTER THAT WITH

THE TECHNIQUE.

THAT'S THE TECHNIQUE THERE.

>> THAT'S TONIGHT'S MAIN EVENT.

LET'S TAKE YOU TO A FIGHT IN THE

WELTERWEIGHT DIVISION.

MARIUS ZAROMSKIS VERSUS VAUGHN

ANDERSON FOR FORMER DREAM

CHAMPION.

HE SEES THIS AS A MUST-WIN

FIGHT.

>> ROLLING KICK IS KNOCKING GUYS

WITHOUT THAT IN THE PAST.

>> I GIVE OTHER GUYS BAD DREAMS.

>> WHOA!

>> I FIGHT ALL OVER THE WORLD.

>> I CAME TO AMERICA TO FIGHT ON

THE BIGGEST STAGE IN THE WORLD.

AND I THINK THERE IS MORE

DANGER -- BECAUSE THE FIGHT IN

MY HEART, THIS IS MY LAST

CHANCE.

MY BACK IS AGAINST THE WALL.

>> UNBELIEVABLE!

>> WHEN THE BELL RINGS, ANDERSON

IS IN MY WAY.

AND WHAT I'M DOING, THE WORLD

WILL KNOW.

MARIUS ZAROMSKIS IS BACK.

>> VAUGHN ANDERSON HAS FOUGHT

AROUND THE WORLD AND SAYS HE IS

PREPARED TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES

TO WIN.

>> BEATING A MAN WITH ABSOLUTELY

NO MERCY IS THE GREATEST SIGN OF

RESPECT.

AND, YEAH.

ONE ADVANTAGE, WHETHER THAT

MEANS EATING SPINACH OR CUTTING

WEIGHT OR WHATEVER IT IS, IT

HELPS YOU GET THAT COMPETITIVE

EDGE AND I FOUND OUT THAT SNAKE

BLOOD MAKES YOU MORE AGGRESSIVE.

THERE IS A MARKET IN TAIPEI

WHERE THEY KILL SNAKES, DRAIN

THEIR BILE AND BLOOD AND YOU CAN

DRINK IT RIGHT THERE IN THE

SHOTS.

RIGHT AFTER YOU DRINK THE SHOT,

YOU JUST GET THIS RUSH.

IT FEELS GREAT.

I STOPPED DOING IT BECAUSE IT IS

HARD GETTING SNAKE BLOOD THROUGH

CUSTOMS.

I GREW UP IN ONTARIO, AND I

DIDN'T COME HERE IT LOSE.

I NEED TO MAKE A STATEMENT WITH

THIS FIGHT.

SOMETHING WONDERFUL.

SOMETHING VIOLENT AND BRUTAL.

JUST WATCH.

>> THROUGHOUT HIS PRO MMA

CAREER, VAUGHN ANDERSON FOUGHT

IN EIGHT COUNTRIES.

TONIGHT THIS IS ANDERSON'S FIRST

FIGHT IN HIS NATIVE CANADA.

STRONG.

WISELY IS FEELING THAT POWER

RIGHT NOW ON THE GROUND.

GOOD JOB OF PLIKSING IT UP.

THAT TIME AGAINST WILL BROOKS,

WASN'T ABLE TO THROW ELBOWS.

SAYS THAT'S A BIG PART OF MY

ARSENAL.

>> SEE THE BLOOD ON THE LEFT

BICEP OF ALESSIO, AGAIN.

THAT'S THE CUT FROM WISELY'S

LEFT BROW.

FROM THE STRIKE OF ALESSIO.

THAT ELBOW DIDN'T GET THROUGH.

>> THAT ONE PARTIALLY DID.

BEING MORE AGGRESSIVE.

THAT WAS A HALLMARK EARLIER IN

HIS CAREER AND HE GOT AWAY WITH

GOT AWAY FROM IT.

AND POUND.

BITING IN SPURTS.

ASIDE FROM THE CUT, ALSO HAS THE

MOUSE FORMING UNDER HIS RIGHT

EYE.

>> WISELY HAS TO UNDERSTAND,

HE'S NOT GOING TO WIN THIS FIGHT

FROM HERE.

SOMETHING WITH IT.

>> OF COURSE, CATCH OF 16 0

POUND.

BUT THEY DON'T LOOK LIKE THEY

ARE IN THE SAME WEIGHT CLASS.

JOHN ALESSIO, MUCH BIGGER.

>> THAT STRUCK ME HE AS WELL.

ALESSIO LOOKS LIKE A DIFFERENT

WEIGHT CLASS.

THIS IS THE CATCHWEIGHT OF 170,

BUT IT LOOKS LIKE ALESSIO HAS

COME DOWN AND WISELY HAS GONE

UP.

WITH ONE EPISODE LEFT BEFORE THE

LIVE FINALE, FOUR ARTIST REMAIN

IN THE CHALLENGE YET.

HERE ON SPIKE.

>> 160, SEAN.

>> WHAT DID I SAY?

>> 170.

WHICH JOHN ALESSIO DID USED TO

FIGHT AT.

HE WAS AFRAID I SAID 116 FOR A

MINUTE.

>> ALESSIO MUCH BIGGER, AND IT

AIN'T FAT.

THAT DUDE IS STRONG.

>> NOT EVEN CLOSE, CAN'T EVEN

GET IN THE PARKING LOT.

>> IMAGINE PARKING THE BOAT.

>> HE HAS NO OFFENSE TO GO WITH

THIS MOVEMENT.

SET UP STRIKE AND THROWING THE

OCCASIONAL LEG KICK.

BUT EASY TO GET THAT BACK WITH A

COUPLE KICKS OF HIS OWN.

>> AND JIMMY, ALESSIO IS MOVING

WITH HIM AND HE IS MOVING

FORWARD.

HE IS THE ONE BEING THE

AGGRESSOR.

THAT COUNTS IN THE JUDGING.

AGGRESSIVE.

WISELY'S CORNER ALSO SAID, HE

LOST ROUND 1.

ROUND 2 WAS CLOSE.

WHAT DID YOU THINK, JIMMY?

>> I DIDN'T THINK ROUND 2 WAS

THAT CLOSE.

I GAVE IT 10-9, JOHN ALESSIO.

BOTH GUYS THREW, BUT NOTHING

LANDED BIG.

ALESSIO MORE PRESSURE.

EASY 10-9 TO ME.

>> WORKING TO THE INSIDE.

>> SUCCESSFUL IN ROUND 1 ON TOP

WITH GROUND AND POUND.

TRYING TO GET BACK THERE AGAIN.

AHEAD IMMEDIATELY WITH THE LEFT

HAND.

SHOULDER STRIKE.

TIME IN THE CLOSED GUARD.

NOW IN HALF GUARD.

CAN YOU ADVANCE FROM THAT

POSITION.

MORE MEANINGFUL GROUND AND

POUND.

THAT'S THE QUESTION.

WISELY HALF-COURT.

LOOKING FOR PUNCHING DISTANCE.

SHORTLY FROM ALESSIO.

LEFT HANDS AND SHOULDERS

STRIKES, JIMMY.

STAYING BUSY.

HE'S WORKING.

NOT ANYTHING BIG.

SO FAR, NO ATTACK FROM THE

BOTTOM.

ALESSIO, TRYING TO RAISE UP.

LOOKING FOR STRIKING DISTANCE.

THEN PURE FRUSTRATION, JIMMY,

FROM ERIC WISELY.

HASN'T GOTTEN HIS GAME GOING.

NOT STANDING.

NOT ON THE GROUND.

WISELY TALKS ABOUT PRESSURE,

CUTTING ANGLES, HE COMBINATIONS,

LEG KICKS.

JUST HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO SOLVE

JOHN ALESSIO ANYWHERE IN THIS

FIGHT.

>> BEEN ON THE GROUND WHERE

ALESSIO IS ABLE TO DO THE MOST

DAMAGE TO WISELY.

BACK WHEN THAT MOVEMENT HAS BEEN

A PROBLEM FROM THE OUTSIDE FOR

ALESSIO.

PUTTING PRESSURE ON HIM.

ON THE GROUND.

REFEREE HAS BEEN CONTENT TO LET

THE FIGHT STAY ON THE GROUND.

JOHN ALESSIO EBEEN BUSY.

>> GOING AFTER ERIC WISELY.

>> WRIST CONTROL.

ALESSIO COULDN'T FIND IT.

>> DOUBLE LEFT HAND.

>> DON'T EXPECT ALESSIO TO DO

ANYTHING DRAMATIC.

IF HE SEES THE OPPORTUNITY, HE

MIGHT TAKE IT.

OUT, FIREWORKS IN THE FIRST

START.

A GREAT WAY TO START OUR

PAY-PER-VIEW.

>> ALSO, WILL BROOKS, REMIND ME

OF ANOTHER TALENT, TAKING ON

NATE JOLLY.

>> WILL BROOKS IS THE NEXT PAT

CONCERN, NEXT DOUG LIMA.

HE WANTED ON THIS CARD SO BADLY

BECAUSE HE WILL CHALLENGE THE

WINNER OF ALVAREZ VERSUS

CHANDLER.

HE SAID, GIVE ME ANYBODY.

WE GAVE HIM NATE JOLLY.

A TOUGH FIGHT.

THIS KID HAS EVERY TOOL.

THIS WILL BE A GREAT FIGHT.

>> INCREDIBLE FIGHTER.

AND GUARANTEED A TITLE SHOT.

WANTED TO STAY BUSY.

THAT'S IMPORTANT HE HAS HEART.

AND THE FIGHT I KEEP SWITCHING

BACK AND FORTH IN MY MIND, TITO

ORTIZ VERSUS MIDDLEWEIGHT

CHAMPION.

THE QUESTION FOR US ON

EVERYBODY'S MIND, EVERYBODY

TALKS ABOUT IT ON-LINE, IS TITO

PHYSICALLY READY FOR A FIGHT?

I KNOW HE TRAINS NEAR YOU.

WHAT'S GOING ON IN HIS CAMP

RIGHT NOW?

>> JIMMY, HE'S BEEN TRAINING

LIKE CRAZY.

WRESTLING, GOING 10 ROUNDS, 12,

15 ROUNDS IN TERMS OF SPARRING.

HE IS 110%, AS CRAZY AS THAT

SOUNDS COMING OUT OF MY MOUTH, I

WAS WAITING FOR A PHONE CALL

THAT NEVER CAME.

NOT ONE PHONE CALL ABOUT A DING.

TITO ORTIZ IS READY TO FIGHT.

BUT JIMMY, HE IS FIGHTING

ALEXANDER, ONE OF THE BEST

MIDDLEWEIGHTS IN THE WORLD.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR,

BABY.

>> HE LOVES TO WORK THE BODY.

HE IS ABOUT MY SIZE.

WELTERWEIGHT SIZE.

DOES HE HAVE THE STOPPING POWER

TO DROP A NATURAL 205-ER.

THAT'S THE QUESTION IN THAT

FIGHT.

SPEAKING OF IT 205-ERS, TWO THAT

FIGHT EVERY TIME THEY SEE EACH

OTHER, IF THAT IS NOT AN

UNDERSTATEMENT.

>> NIE

.

>> THESE TWO HATE EACH OTHER.

RAMPAGE IS BACK.

TOP KING, THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE

FIGHT.

DO NOT MISS THIS FIGHT.

SO MUCH IN THE RING.

>> KING MO, BACK AGAINST THE

WALL.

AN INTERESTING SITUATION TO BE

IN.

INCREDIBLE ATHLETE.

INCREDIBLE FIGHTER.

WILL HE LIVE UP TO THE FIGHT

AGAINST RAMPAGE?

THAT'S THE QUESTION.

OF COURSE, FIGHTERS THAT ALWAYS

LIVE UP TO EXPECTATIONS,

CHANDLER, ALVAREZ, THE TRILOGY

ENDS.

IS IT WRONG FOR US TO MORE THAN

THE MAGIC THAT WE SAW IN THE

FIRST FIGHT.

>> I DON'T THINK SO.

THE FIRST FIGHT WAS GREAT,

SECOND FIGHT BETTER STILL.

THESE TWO ARE MAGIC IN THE RING

WITH EACH OTHER.

THERE IS SO MUCH ON THE LINE.

A TRILOGY FIGHT.

1-1.

WINNER OF THIS FIGHT MOVES ON.

UNLIMITED IN TERMS OF WHERE HE

GOES.

LOSER HAS TO STEP BACK IN LINE.

TWO OF THE VERY BEST IN OUR

GAME.

WEICHEL BACK TO WORK ON THE

GROUND.

WHAT WEICHEL HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO

DO IS USE THESE MOMENTS WHEN

HE'S HAD DES GREEN TO GET A DM

NANT POSITION ON THE GROUND LIKE

HAS GONE BACK TO WRESTLING AND
