BACK TO HIS FEET.

BACKGROUND IN JUJIT STU.

NOT ABLE TO FINISH THAT

TAKEDOWN.

PARLO REALLY A BOXER-BASED

STRIKER IN MMA.

NOT GOING TO SEE IT FROM HIM,

NOT REALLY KICK, NOT REALLY

KNEES OR ELBOWS.

LETS THE HANDS GO.

GOT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THOSE

TIMES WHEN BUTCHER

A BIT OF GAMESMANSHIP, SAT

DOWN, SHOT TO THE SINGLE LEG.

>> Jimmy: LOOKING IN THE EYES

OF THE JUNCTION, ON TO HIS

BACK.

THEY DON'T LIKE THAT.

OF THOSE GUYS THAT TENDS TO

TURN IT UP LATER IN FIGHTS.

THINKING ABOUT THROWING THAT

BUTCHER, CONSTANTLY BACKING OUT

AND MAKING HIM STAND BACK ON

HIS FEET.

>> READY, FIGHT.

>> Sean: ROUND NUMBER TWO OF

THE SEMIFINAL BROUGHT TO YOU BY

PUNISHMENT ATHLETICS.

JIMMY, YOUR THOUGHTS ON ROUND

NUMBER ONE SCORECARD-WISE.

>> Jimmy: CLOSE, MIKKEL PARLO,

MORE EFFECTIVE COMBINATION.

JASON BUTCHER HAD HIS MOMENTS,

BUT I THOUGHT MOST OF THE ROUND

BELONGED TO PARLO.

>> Sean: FANS THERE VOTING ON

THE BELLATOR APP, SCORED 6-9 TO

JASON BUTCHER.

>> Jimmy: CLOSE FIRST ROUND,

COULD HAVE GONE EITHER WAY.

>> Sean: THAT'S A GOOD UPPER

KUPT BY BUTCHER, BACKED OFF

PARLO ARE AND HE COMES BACK

SWINGING.

>> Jimmy: IT'S INTERESTING,

BUTCHER IS THE LONGER FIGHTER,

HAS THE LONGER REACH.

BUT HE DOES WELL MOVING

FORWARD.

WHICH IS STRANGE.

BUT THAT'S WHEN HE'S MOST

SUCCESSFUL, MOVING FORWARD,

EVEN THOUGH HE'S LONGER,

TALLER, BETTER REACH.

>> Sean: YOU SAW BUTCHER

UNSUCCESSFULLY TRYING TO TAKE

THIS FIGHT TO THE GROUND.

>> Jimmy: PARLO HAS TO MAKE HIM

WAY FOR THAT AGGRESSION.

SITTING ON THE HANDS AND BACK

HIM UP.

RIGHT NOW BUTCHER IS CONFIDENT

MOVING FORWARD.

>> Sean: CONTRAST, BODY, HUGE

CONTRAST IN STYLES IN THE

BELLATOR CAGE.

PARLO VERSUS BUTCHER.

>> Jimmy: YOU SEE HIM BACKING

OUT, JIMMY, PARLO KEEPS THAT

RIGHT HAND TO HIS TEMPLE.

WELL DISCIPLINED BOXER.

ONE THING ABOUT PARLO, SCORED 7

KNOCKOUTS OF HIS 10 WINS.

NOT A ONE-PUNCH KNOCKOUT KIND

OF GUY.

HE WEARS YOU DOWN, FIGHTS IN

FLURRIES.

DOESN'T NECESSARILY START YOU

WITH ONE SHOT.

>> Sean: BIG STRONG ON THE

DOUBLE LEG ATTEMPT FROM PARLO.

BUTCHER TO HIS BACK AND PARLO

WALKING AWAY.

>> Sean: GOOD LEFT HAND FROM

PARLO, BLOOD COMING OUT OF THE

NOSE OF JASON BUTCHER.

>> Jimmy: GOOD UPPER CUT.

>> Sean: WINDMILL OVERHAND,

FLIP BY PARLO.

>> Sean: GOOD RIGHT HAND BY

PARLO, OVER THE TOP.

I DON'T THINK ONE SHOT HURT

HIM.

I THINK THE ACCUMULATION IS

STARTING TO GET TO HIM.

>> Sean: BELL TELLING BUTCHER,

STAND UP.

>> Sean: PARLO NOT GOING TO THE

GROUND WILLINGLY.

>> Jimmy: WHY WASTE ANY TIME

OUT OF THERE.

>> Sean: BLOOD FLOWING FREELY

OUT OF JASON BUTCHER'S NOSE.

HEAD KICK AND THE COUNTER

RIGHT-LEFT.

>> Jimmy: THIS IS WHAT PARLO

TALKED ABOUT, BUTCHER IS

CONFIDENT, RUNS HIS MOUTH.

ONCE HE REALIZES HE'S IN THE

FIGHT, I'M GOING TO TAKE

CONTROL OF IT.

THAT'S WHAT IS HAPPENING.

BUTCHER NOT FIGHTING WITH THE

CONFIDENCE HE HAD IN THE FIRST

ROUND.

ANOTHER GOOD COMBINATION BY

PARLO.

>> Sean: PARLO STARTING TO FIND

HIS RANGE IN THE PUNCHING

POCKET.

GOOD RIGHT HAND.

GOOD LEFT HAND, THE COUNTER BY

PARLO.

>> Jimmy: THERE COMES A TIME

WHEN YOU ARE NOT EXPLOSIVES ANY

MORE, YOU AREN'T ATHLETIC ANY

MORE, THE FIGHT ISN'T GOING

YOUR WAY AND YOU HAVE TO DIG

DEEP.

THIS IS WHAT MOMENT FOR JASON

BUTCHER.

>> Sean: BUTCHER, GETS GOING TO

THE GROUND, GOING TO HIS BACK.

>> Jimmy: THIS IS THE FURTHEST

HE HAS BEEN IN HIS CAREER.

HE'S USED TO FINISHING GUYS

FAST.

>> Sean: JIMMY, MY CONCERN IF

THAT WITH A WERE BUTCHER'S

STRATEGY, MIGHT THINK HE'S

GETTING FLIPPED AND KNOCKED

DOWN.

>> LOT OF JUDGES SEE THAT AS

NOT WANTING TO FIGHT, FLOPPING

ON HIS BACK, DOESN'T WANT TO

ENGAGE OPPONENTS.

YOU CAN LOSE ROUNDS THAT WAY.

>> Sean: TIMID PERFORMANCE FROM

JASON BUTCHER.

TRYING TO GET PARLO TO THE

GROUND.

PARLO, STANDING, AND MIKKEL

WITH THE BIG CUT!

SECONDS BEFORE THE BELL.

>> Sean: KICKBOXING OF MIKKEL

PARLO ON THE CHIN.

LANDING SHORPT SHOTS, RIGHT

HAND, HEAD TICK, SO MUCH

CONFIDENCE AT THE END OF THE

SECOND ROUND.

I THINK HE COULD HAVE FINISHED

THIS FIGHT IF HE HAD 10 MORE

SECONDS.

FIRST CAREER ROUND THREE AS AN

M MCHT A PROFESSIONAL FOR JASON

BUTCHER.

>> Sean: YIMY THREW TWO ROUNDS,

I HAVE BOTH ROUNDS, PARLO, LAST

ROUND NOT EVEN CLOSE.

DEFINITELY TO PARLO, FIRST

ROUND CLOSE.

>> Sean: PARLO TURNS HIS BACK,

WALKS AWAY.

SIDE KICK FROM PARLO.

>> Jimmy: THIS IS WHAT I MEANT,

HE TURNS IT UP AS THE FIGHT

GOES ALONG.

>> Sean: PARR LOW THOUGHT ABOUT

GOING IN FOR SOME GROUND AND

POUND, BUT CHANGED HIS MIND.

GOT TO BE TEMPTING FOR PARLO.

>> Jimmy: IT'S TOUGH ENOUGH

THAT YOU SHOULD SEE -- THE

WRESTLING, TO COMPLIMENT YOUR

JUJITSU.

MAYBE CAN YOU SUBMIT A GUY, YOU

HAVE TO GET HIM THERE FIRST.

>> Sean: BLOOD TRICKLE OUT OF

THE CORNER OF PARLO'S LEFT EYE.

BLEEDING OUT OF HIS NOSE.

ALSO AN ABRASION, NOT QUITE A

MOUTH, BUT AN ABRASION UNDER

HIS RIGHT EYE.

>> Jimmy: BUTCHER IS AT HIS

BEST WHEN HE'S MOVING FORWARD.

BUT HE IS TIRED.

>> Sean: BUTCHER DESPERATELY

TRYING TO GET TO IT THE GROUND,

ROLLS TO HIS BACK, BUT PARLO

THINKING ABOUT GOING IN.

STACKING BUTCHER.

>> Jimmy: RIGHT IN FRONT OF US.

PARLO CHANGES HIS MIND.

>> Jimmy: ALSO, SOMETHING TO

KEEP IN MIND, IT'S REALLY

TIRING, GETTING UP OVER AND

OVER.

MAY LOOK SIMPLE BUT ANYONE WHO

FOUGHT, ANYONE WHO'S TRAINED

KNOWS THAT GETTING UP OVER AND

OVER IS REALLY TIRING.

PART OF YOUR TRAINING, VERY

TIRING.

>> Sean: GOOD RIGHT HAND BY

PARLO.

>> Jimmy: BUTCHER THROWS ONE OR

TWO, PARLO THROWS 1, 2, 3, 4,

5.

NOT A LOT OF THEM LANDING

CLEANLY BUT THROWING A LOT MORE

SHOTS THAN JASON BUTCHER.

>> Sean: JIMMY, BEFORE WE WENT

ON AIR WE TALKED ABOUT THIS

LOOKING LIKE IT WAS OUT OF

1995.

I THINK IT DOES LOOK LIKE

SOMETHING OUT OF 1995,

KICKBOXING VERSUS JUJITSU.

BUTCHER IS SHOWING GOOD MOMENTS

OF STRIKING.

BUT AS THE FIGHT HAS WORN ON,

HE HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO KEEP UP

THE PACE OF PARLO.

>> Sean: PARLO WANTED TO MAKE

THIS INTO A BOXING MATCH.

BUTCHER WANTED TO MAKE THIS

INTO A JUJITSU MATCH.

BUTCHER LOOKING EXHAUSTED RIGHT

NOW.

BOUNCES, PARLO.

LEFT TO THE BODY.

>> Jimmy: THAT TAKES ALL THE

ENERGY OUT OF YOU.

>> Sean: CAN BUTCHER GET TO HIS

BACK, PARLO, WILL NOT GO IN.

>> Jimmy: SMART MOVE, GOOD

DISCIPLINE AS A FIGHTER AS

WELL.

A LOT OF TIMES IT'S TEMPTING TO

GET THE FIGHT OVER WITH.

BUT JASON BUTCHER CAN SUBMIT

YOU IF HE'S XAULSESTED.

HE CAN'T KNOCK YOU OUT IF HE'S

EXHAUSTED.

>> Sean: YOU CAN'T GO DOWN, ALL

RIGHT?

THE CROWD IN VISALIA,

CALIFORNIA TIRING OF THE

TACTICS OF JASON BUTCHER.

WILL PARLO GO IN THIS TIME?

GOES IN WITH THE RIGHT HAND.

IN A VERY WEIRD WAY, THIS IS

WHAT BUTCHER WANTS, THOUGH, AT

I'M NOT GOING TO STOP UNTIL I

GET THE KNOCKOUT.

>> MY BIGGEST EDGE IS A SIMPLE

ONE, THEY SAVED ME FROM THE

STREETS OF BRAZIL, SHOWED ME

THE WAY.

THE FEAR OF LETTING THAT MAN

DOWN IS MY BIGGEST MOTIVATION.

>> HE HAS IT LOCKED DOWN.

>> I'M LEONE, SENDING YOU THIS

WARNING.

I WILL NOT BE DENIED TONIGHT

BECAUSE I'M FIGHTING FOR THE

HONOR OF MY MASTER.

>> I DON'T CARE WHERE HE CAME,

FROM I DON'T CARE WHO HIS COACH

IS.

I WANT THIS MORE THAN RAFAEL

SILVA DOES.

I WANT TO BRING TO IT HOME THE

FEED, HE ISN'T GOING TO KNOW

WHAT TO DO, GOING IN FOR THE

DOUBLE-A TAKEDOWN, HE'S GOING

TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE AND THAT'S

WHERE THE FINISH COMES.

>> ANTHONY LEONE CAN TALK ALL

HE WANTS THAT, IS ALL IT IS,

TALK.

WHEN I ENTER THE CABLE I'M

GOING TO TWO ONE THING.

IMPOSE MY WILL ON THIS MAN.

GUYS ON ANY GIVEN NIGHT.

TO SEE MY DAUGHTER FIGHTING.

SOMETIMES IT'S HARD, SOMETIMES

YOU LOSE, SOMETIMES YOU WIN.

I NEED TO MAKE HER PROUD OF ME.

I DON'T LIKE TO PROMOTE

FIGHTING.

IN PRACTICE BRA SIL WHEN YOU

HAVE A BIG MOUTH YOU GOING TO

A LOT OF PEOPLE RUNNING AROUND,

IT WAS CHAOS I SEEN A LITTLE

GIRL, ABOUT 9 YEARS OLD, I

GRABBED HER AND PULLED HER DOWN

KILLED MY SON, THEY KILLED MY

SON.

FAMILY MAN, WORKING GUY, GOOD

DUDE, HE CAUGHT A COUPLE IN THE

CHEST AND DIDN'T MAKE IT.

COULDN'T EAT OR DRINK, MY

INTESTINES WEREN'T WORKING I

WAS IN BAD SHAPE.

I THINK HOW AM I GOING TO MAKE

MONEY, IDENTIFY BILLS, I HAVE

TO FEED MY GIRL.

10 MONTHS LATER I WAS RIGHT

BACK IN THE CAGE.

IT'S VERY ADDICTING TO BE IN

FRONT OF EVERYBODY, AND LAYING

PEOPLE OUT.

VINICIUS HAS NEVER BEEN HIT BY

SOME ONE LIKE ME.

I'LL TAKE MY TIME, PICK HIM

APART, WEAR HIM DOWN, THEN GO

IN FOR THE KILL.

DPOD HAS DIFFERENT PLANS FOR

ME.

ABILITY TO END A FIGHT QUICKLY.

FORCE.

THESE WORDS DESCRIBE THE

ANTICIPATION A PERSON FEELS

WHEN TWO WORLD CLASS

HEAVYWEIGHTS ENTER A CAGE.

THE BELL RINGS, THE REFEREE

MOTIONS.

AND THEN THREE VERY SIMPLE

WORDS -- SHOCK AND AWE.

>> HE'S OUT COLD OH MY GOD!

>> THAT'S IT.

>> THIS THE HEAVYWEIGHT

LANDSCAPE THAT TWO MEN HOPE TO

CONQUER.

CHEICK KONGO IS A MAN WHO

TRAVELED THE WORLD IN SEARCH OF

AN ELUSIVE DREAM, A WORLD

TITLE.

>> WHEN I STEP MOO THE CABLE

AND I SEE MY OPPONENT IN FRONT

OF ME, THE ONLY THING I GOT IN

MIND I MUST BREAK YOU.

TO BE A WARRIOR.

PRIMED FOR VIOLENCE WILL CIRCLE

EACH OTHER IN THE CAGE.

THERE WILL BE A TWITCH, AND

THEN A TECTONIC SHIFT, A BODY

WILL HIT THE CANVAS.

AND A VICTOR'S QUEST FOR

BELLATOR GOLD WILL CONTINUE

JAUNL WARD.

HE WANTS IT UGLY AND INSIDE.

EASIER SAID THAN DONE.

THIS FIGHT WITH KICKS, WITH

PUNCHES, COULD END IT AT ANY

YOUR CORNER TO REMOVE THE CAP.

FACE OF CHEICK KONGO.

BETTER, MORE POLISHED STRIKER,
