LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, HERE'S

SAHAK PARPARYAN!

THE REFEREE IN CHARGE OF THIS

BOUT IS AL WICKERS.

>> PARPARYAN AND WILNIS.

THESE TWO KNOW EACH OTHER VERY

WELL.

THEY BOTH EARNED VICTORIES

AGAINST EACH OTHER.

PARPARYAN BEAT WILNIS IN

SEPTEMBER OF 2012 AND WILNIS

BEAT PARPARYAN IN NOVEMBER OF

2012.

THAT ONE BY WAY OOF TKO.

JASON WILNIS IN THE BLACK WITH

WHITE STRIPES.

AND SAHAK PARPARYAN IN THE

BLACK.

WILNIS THROWS A LOW KICK TO KICK

THINGS OFF.

HERE COMES PARPARYAN.

>> I THINK WILNIS HAS A

PSYCHOLOGICAL ADVANTAGE.

HE STOPPED PARPARYAN.

PARPARYAN BEAT HIM ON POINTS

THOUGH.

PSYCHOLOGICALLY COMES IN MORE

CONFIDENT.

>> NICE COMBINATION THROWN BY

SAHAK PARPARYAN.

WATCH THE SPEED OF JASON WILNIS.

FIGHTERS EXCHANGE.

PARPARYAN PUSHES.

A GOOD COMBINATION.

FOLLOWS IT WITH A LOW KICK.

>> THE GUY THAT CONTROLS THE

MIDDLE OF THE FIGHT WILL WIN

THIS WAR.

>> AND BOTH KNOWN FOR FINISHING

THEIR FIGHTS.

THIS ONE MAY NOT GO THE

DISTANCE.

THAT CAN BE A BENEFIT ANY TIME

YOU'RE IN A TOURNAMENT.

GET IN AND OUT QUICKLY.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, HEALTHY.

>> PARPARYAN IS USING COOL PUNCH

WITH HIS LEFT HAND.

HE'S USING A 45 OR WHAT THEY

CALL IN BOXING THE SHOVEL HOOK.

HE'S TRYING TO FLIP WILNIS'

GLOVES WITH IT OR SOMETIMES WHAT

LOOKS LIKE A LIVER SHOT.

IT'S A DECEPTIVE PUNCH.

>> PARPARYAN JUST MISSED WITH

THE UPPER CUT.

JASON WILNIS SHOWS THE SPEED I

WAS TALKING ABOUT, THROWING THE

COMBINATION.

>> BODY SHOT LANDS FROM

PARPARYAN.

>> BOTH OF THESE FIGHTERS ARE

TECHNICAL AND AGGRESSIVE.

WHAT CAN YOU ASK BETTER FOR IN A

FIGHTER?

IT'S FUN.

>> NICE EXCHANGE THERE.

PARPARYAN WITH A LOW KICK.

TRIES TO PUSH KICK.

JUST MISSED.

>> BIG FACTOR IN THIS CONTENDER

TOURNAMENT, HOW MUCH DAMAGE WILL

THEY TAKE IN THE FIRST FIGHT.

THAT WILL DETERMINE THE OUTCOME.

>> ALWAYS DOES.

PARPARYAN WITH A SHORT UPPERCUT

THAT GETS THROUGH THE GUARD.

UNDER A MINUTE TO GO IN ROUND

NUMBER 1.

SAHAK PARPARYAN AND JASON

WILNIS.

>> WILNIS IS DOING A GREAT JOB

WHEN HE RECEIVES THE LOW KICK.

ALWAYS COUNTERS WITH A LOW STEP

KICK.

NICE DIG THERE.

>> SOLID SHOT TO THE LIVER FROM

JASON WILNIS.

PARPARYAN KEEPS MOVING FORWARD.

FIGHTERS CHANGE LOW KICKS AND

PUSH KICKS THERE FROM JASON

WILNIS.

>> NICE PULL BACK.

WENT TO THE BODY.

AT HOME, WHY ARE THEY GOING TO

THE BODY AND THE LEGS?

THEY'RE GOING TO TIRE OUT THEIR

OPPONENTS.

THOSE SHOTS TO THE BODY SLOW YOU

DOWN.

THE LEG KICKS WILL TAKE THE

FIGHT OUT OF YOU.

>> GOOD EXCHANGE AS WE COME

NEARING THE END OF ROUND NUMBER

1 IN THIS SEMIFINAL BETWEEN

SAHAK PARPARYAN AND JASON

WILNIS.

THE PUSH KICK FROM PARPARYAN AND

ROUND NUMBER 2.

SAHAK PARPARYAN AND JASON

WILNIS.

BOTH FIGHTERS LOOKING TO PROVE

THEY CAN COMPETE IN GLORY'S

MIDDLEWEIGHT DIVISION.

PARPARYAN COMES IN AS THE NUMBER

4 RANKED MIDDLEWEIGHT AND

WILNIS, NUMBER 5.

WILNIS THROWING KICKS AND

LANDING.

A BODY SHOT, TOO.

>> LOOKS LIKE WILNIS HAS A

LITTLE MORE SENSE OF URGENCY

THIS ROUND.

>> RIGHT HOOK THERE FROM

PARPARYAN.

WILNIS NEEDS TO WATCH THAT.

>> HE'S GOT TO BE CAUTIOUS.

PARPARYAN IS A VERY GOOD COUNTER

PUNCHER.

HERE'S THE POWER STATS.

35% LANDED BY PARPARYAN.

HE THREW THE HEAVIER STRIKES.

HE'S THE POWER PUNCHER IN THIS

MAN.

>> AND DOESN'T SEEM TO BE DOING

MUCH DAMAGE TO SAHAK PARPARYAN.

>> BOTH OF THESE BOYS ARE HARD

FIGHTERS.

THAT'S WHAT'S FUN TO WATCH.

THEY'RE NOT DANCING, JABBING OR

MOVING.

THEY'RE THROWING DOWN.

>> WELL-PUT.

WE SAW THIS WOULD BE THE FIRST

SEMIFINAL BOUT, WE KNEW THIS

WOULD BE A SOLID FIGHT.

BOTH OF THESE GUYS ARE TOUGH

KIDS.

>> I THINK THE WHOLE TOURNAMENT

IS MURDER'S ROW.

ALL OF THESE GUYS ARE DANGEROUS.

>> AND PARPARYAN REALLY WORKING

THE BODY.

GETTING THROUGH WITH A

COMBINATION.

HERE'S WILNIS.

>> WILNIS HAS A NICE COMBO LIKE

SUGAR RAY LEONARD.

PARPARYAN LOOKS LIKE HAGLER

THROWING HARD STRIKES.

IT'S GOING TO BE IMPORTANT HOW

THE JUDGES SCORE THIS FIGHT.

ACTIVITY OR AGGRESSION AND POWER

LIKE THAT.

>> COMBINATION TO THE BODY FROM

PARPARYAN.

UNDER A MINUTE TO GO IN ROUND

NUMBER 2.

SCHEDULED FOR THREE.

>> PARPARYAN IS DOING A GOOD JOB

OF BACKING WILNIS UP.

THAT WILL HELP HIM WIN THE FIGHT

ON THE CARD.

>> RIGHT TO THE BODY FROM

PARPARYAN.

WE'RE UNDER 30 SECONDS TO GO.

>> HAWK IS PULLING BACK ON THE

HOOK.

MIKE IS A GOOD KICK BOXER.

>> AND PARPARYAN'S THIRD FIGHT

AFTER SUFFERING A GRUESOME NOSE

AND FACE INJURY.

HE BROKE HIS JAW.

WE WERE WONDERING HOW HE WOULD

DO

>> THE THIRD AND FINAL ROUND.

DUKE, WHO DO YOU HAVE LEAD

SOMETHING.

>> I'M GOING WITH THE HOP.

PARPARYAN.

HE'S THE MORE AGGRESSIVE AND

LANDING THE BIGGER SHOTS.

>> WE HAVE JASON WILNIS NEEDING

TO PICK UP THE PACE IN THE THIRD

ROUND.

HERE'S PARPARYAN AGAIN.

REALLY HAVING SUCCESS WITH THE

COMBINATION TO THE BODY.

THERE'S A RIGHT THAT GETS

THROUGH TO THE HEAD OF WILNIS.

WILNIS'S CORNER, THEY SCREAM OUT

EVERY TIME HE THROWS A LOW KICK.

>> THAT'S A TRADITION FROM

THAILAND.

WHEN YOU LAND A BIG KICK, IT'S

CALLED A KAKOW.

IT'S GOOD FOR THE FIGHTER'S

MENTALITY.

>> HAWK PREPARING.

NUMBER 4 RANKED MIDDLE WEIGHT AS

WE CHECK OUT THE TOTAL STRIKES.

EVENLY MATCHED AT THIS POINT.

>> WHAT THE JUDGES ARE GROWING

TO SAY, WHO WANTS IT MORE.

NO GUTS, NO GLORY.

IT'S SO TRUTHFUL.

THE GUY THAT TURNS IT UP THIS

ROUND WILL WIN THE FIGHT.

>> A CHANCE TO MOVE ON TO THE

FINALS OF THE MIDDLEWEIGHT

CONTENDER TOURNAMENT HERE IN

ZAGREB.

NICE BODY SHOT FROM JASON WILNIS

IN COMBINATION.

HERE'S PARPARYAN.

>> DUELLING BANJOS.

LOVE IT.

>> AND IT'S TIME TO IMPRESS THE

JUDGES AND FINISH STRONG.

WILNIS MISSES WITH A HOOK.

>> THIS IS ALMOST REMINISCENT OF

THE ERIC MORALES FIGHT.

YOU HIT ME, I'LL HIT YOU.

THE GUY THAT HITS LAST WILL WIN

THIS WAR.

>> UNDER A MINUTE TO GO.

THIRD AND FINAL ROUND.

PARPARYAN AND WILNIS.

WILNIS JUST MISSES WITH A SOLID

SHOT.

PARPARYAN SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN

COUNTERING BETTER IN THE THIRD

ROUND.

PUSH KICK.

GETS THROUGH.

AND ANOTHER.

WILNIS GOES UP AGAINST THE

ROPES.

TEEING OFF NOW IS PARPARYAN.

WILNIS IS BLOCKING A LOT OF

THOSE SHOTS.

>> WILNIS TOOK A BIG BREATH.

HE'S GOT TO PICK IT UP TO WIN

THIS ONE.

>> WHOA!

HIGH KICK JUST MISSES FROM

WILNIS.

FELT THE BREEZE OVER HERE

RINGSIDE.

WHO CAN FINISH THIS ROUND STRONG

ENOUGH?

THAT'S GOING TO DO IT FOR ROUND

THREE.

SAHAK PARPARYAN AND JASON

WILNIS, WHAT A WAY

>> WHO WILL BE MOVING ON TO THE

MIDDLEWEIGHT CONTENDER FINALS?

IT'S UP TO THE JUDGES BETWEEN

SAHAK PARPARYAN AND JASON WILNIS

AS WE CHECK OUT THE STRIKE

STATS.

>> THE ARMS ARE THROWN MORE

OBVIOUSLY BY SAHAK PARPARYAN.

THE LEGS BY WILNIS.

BUT I THINK THE MORE EFFECTIVE

STRIKES WERE BY SAHAK EVEN

THOUGH THE PERCENTAGES SAY

DIFFERENT.

THE POWER IS THE DIFFERENCE.

LOOK AT THE POWER RATIO.

THAT'S WHAT PROFESSIONAL PRIZE

FIGHTING IS ABOUT.

TRYING TO KNOCK OUT YOUR

OPPONENT.

>> AND WE'LL FIND OUT WHO WILL

BE MOVING ON TO THE FINALS.

LET'S MAKE IT OFFICIAL AND HEAD

INTO THE GLORY RING AND TIM

HUGHES.

>> AFTER THREE ROUNDS, WE GO TO

THE JUDGES.

THE FIRST JUDGE, SCORES IT 29-28

WILNIS.

THE SECOND JUDGE, 29-28

PARPARYAN.

AND THE THIRD JUDGE, 29-28.

FOR YOUR WINNER WHO NOW ADVANCES

TO THE TOURNAMENT FINAL, SAHAK

PARPARYAN!

>> THE JUDGES SAW THIS ONE A

LITTLE BIT CLOSER THAN WE DID,

DUKE.

BUT SAHAK PARPARYAN EARNS THE

VICTORY BY ONE OF SPLIT DECISION

AND WILL MOVE ON TO THE FINALS.

ALWAYS A KEY IS DID HE GET OUT

HEALTHY AND WHEN YOU GO THREE

ROUNDS, THEY ALWAYS TAKE ITS

TOLL.

PARPARYAN HAS PUNCHED HIS TICKED

TO THE FINALS.

>> AGAIN, I THINK HE LOOKED

HEALTHY.

HE WAS SMART.

HE DIDN'T OVERKICK.

HE DID A GOOD JOB OF BEING

AGGRESSIVE, PUNCHING.

PUNCHES ARE ALWAYS HIGH

PERCENTAGE TO NOT GET HURT.

>> WE CHECK OUT THE GLORY MIDDLE

WEIGHT RANKINGS.

SAHAK PARPARYAN HAS MOVED UP TO

NUMBER 4.

HE HAS STAYED AT NUMBER 4.

YOU CAN SEE THE REST OF THE GUYS

PARTICIPATING IN THE TOURNAMENT

TONIGHT.

WILNIS NUMBER 5.

JACOBY AT NUMBER 7 AND ALEX

PEREIRA ENTERS IN AT NUMBER 9.

FOUGHT WITH CRO COP.

THIS IS YOUR LAST FIGHT.

YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO

DO.

WHAT IS THE EXTRA EDGE YOU NEED

TO WIN THIS BOUT?

IS IT JUST TO BE PROACTIVE ON

OFFENSE?

>> A LOT OF OFFENSE.

I PUT PRESSURE ON HIM.

IT'S ABOUT DETAILS.

WE'RE BOTH STRONG FIGHTERS.

WE'VE WORKED WITH EACH OTHER.

SO IF HE'S NOT CONCENTRATED, IF

I'M NOT CONCENTRATED, THAT WILL

MAKE THE DIFFERENCE.

>> THIS IS YOUR LAST FIGHT.

THE LAST TIME YOU GET YOUR HANDS

WRAPPED.

HOW DOES IT FEEL?

ARE THE EMOTIONS DIFFERENT?

>> THEY'RE ALREADY HITTING ME.

I'VE DONE THIS MORE THAN 20

YEARS.

THE EXPLOSION.

WE'RE SEEING A DIFFERENT

DYNAMIC.

HE USUALLY STARTS RIGHTY.

THIS TIME HE STARTED LEFTY.

>> AND KIRIA JUST MISSED WITH A

STRONG RIGHT HOOK.

RISTIE COUNTERS.

>> HE'S TRYING TO GO FOR BROKE.

NUMBER 2.

>> STARTING TO FAKE WITH THE

KNEES.

HE'S WORRIED ABOUT THE KNEES.

BITES WITH THE KNEE AND HITS HIM

WITH SOMETHING ELSE.

>> BOTH OF THESE FIGHTERS ARE

USED TO FIGHTING THREE

THREE-MINUTE ROUNDS.

YOU HAVE TO PACE YOURSELF, TOO.

ALTHOUGH RISTIE, SEEMS LIKE HE'S

JUST GOT ONE SPEED.

THAT'S FAST FORWARD.

SHOT THERE.

ALWAYS GOING FOR THE KNOCKOUT.

HERE'S THE KNEES AGAIN.

THE STRAIGHT UPPERCUT BY RISTIE.

FOLLOWED BY THE KNEE.

AND KIRIA ESCAPES.

>> GOING TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE

KNOCKDOWN HERE.

AGAIN, HE WAS SETTING IT UP.

SEE HOW HE TURNED THE KNEE INTO

IT?

HE HAD TO TURN IN AND CREATE A

COLLISION.

MOVES THE HEAD WITH HIS HAND

INTO THE KNEE.

RIGHT HAND.

HE PULLS THE HEAD IN WITH THE

RIGHT KNEE.

AGAIN.

ANOTHER LOOK AT IT.

HE CUFFS HIS FINGERS.

BANG.

HOW DID HE SURVIVE THAT, MAN?

>> HOW DID HE NOT BREAK HIS

NOSE?

RISTIE KNOWN FOR HIS DEVASTATING

KNEES.

THERE'S A PRIME EXAMPLE OF IT.

HE FINISHES UP WITH THE BODY

SHOTS TO CREATE THE DISTANCE AND

MOVES IN WITH BRUTAL KNEES.

CONTINUES THE COMBINATION.

UPPERCUT GETS THROUGH.

PROBING WITH STRIKES AND THEN HE

EXPLODES.

HE'S KEEPING HIM BUSY LIKE THAT.

AND THAT'S HOW HE'S GOING TO

KEEP A COUNTER FIGHTER OFF YOU.

YOU CAN SEE KIRIA'S RIGHT EYE IS

STARTING TO WELL.

IT'S GIVING HIM TROUBLE.

I LIKE WHAT KIRIA IS DOING.

HIGH PUSH KICK.

GETTING CLOSE.

JUST KIND LAND THAT SPECTACULAR

SHOT.

LAST ROUND.

WIN.

HIGH KICK GOATS THROUGH, BUT NOT

MUCH DAMAGE.

WITH THE KNEES IN THE FIRST

BOUGHT.

SURPRISED HE'S NOT THROWING MORE

OF THOSE.

HE CAME OUT EARLY WITH THEM BUT

NOW HE'S CONTENT TO USE THE

BOXING AND THE LOW KICK THERE AS

OLD.

REMY LANDS A HIGH KICK.

MISSES.

THE FEELING THAT CRO COP IS

TRYING TO FIND THAT RANGE TO

THROW THAT PATENTED HIGH KICK.

FIRST FIGHT.

A QUICK PUNCH COMBO.

>> AS YOU MENTIONED, THIS IS A

REMATCH OF THEIR 2002 MEETING.

REFEREE STOPPAGE.

REMY WAS LOOKING TO ATTACK.

FORWARD AND CLOSE THE DISTANCE.

>> THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

DON'T GIVE HIM ROOM TO KICK.

THE HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION.

CRO COP NUMBER 9.

THE TWO LOOK LIKE THEY BUMPED

HEADS.

AL WICKERS CALLING A TIME-OUT.

TALKING ABOUT THE HEAD BUTT.

RESETS.

FORTUNATELY NO CUT.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A HORRIBLE

WAY TO END THIS HISTORIC MATCH

BY WAY OF A CUT.

>> SOUNDS CLICHE', BUT THE GUY

THAT BACKS THE OTHER GUY UP WILL

WIN.

THE BIG KNEES AND KICKS AND CRO
