NOT A GOOD SIGN.

THEY USUALLY HAVE A LOT OF

FAITH IN PIT BULL STRIKING.

JUST GETTING OUT POINTED IN

THE STRIKING MATCH SO FAR IN

THIS ROUND.

>> BLOOD FLOWING FREELY OUT

OF THE MOUTH OF PIT BULL.

>> PIT BULL TOLD US JIMMY,

I'M THE NEW PIT BULL COMING

INTO THIS FIGHT.

ALMOST LIKE THE NEW PIT BULL

BUT LESS AGGRESSIVE.

EVEN IN DEFEAT WE'VE SEEN HIM

MORE AGGRESSIVE

>> NOT WITH THE INTENSITY

WE'VE SEEN HIM TAKE INTO THE

BELL TORE CAGE BEFORE

>> WHEN A NEW GUY STEPS UP,

UNDEFEATED BUT ONLY FOUGHT IN

THE REGIONAL SHOWS, YOU WANT

TO GET IN THEIR HEAD, LET THEM

KNOW YOU'RE COMING INTO MY

HOUSE.

PIT BULL HAS NOT DONE THAT

HERE.

YOU DON'T WANT THAT IN

OPPOSITION WITH PIT BULL

DISMISS I HAVE IS OF THE

RESUME OF PIT BULL, WHAT HE'S

ACCOMPLISHED IN MMA.

>> THAT IS CONFIDENCE SHAUN.

YOU LAND SOMETHING LIKE THAT

YOU'RE FEELING GOOD.

>> 120 SECONDS REMAINING IN

THIS FIGHT.

>> PIT BULL HAS TO HURT

ANDERSON I THINK AT THIS

POINT, REALLY WIN BACK THIS

ROUND WITH THE POWER.

BUT THAT'S NOT GOING TO DO IT

>> IT IS BRAWL JUST A SHOVE

OFF FROM ANDERSON.

PIT BULL NOT TAKING THE TAKE

DOWN

>> THE TIME TO GO TAKE DOWN,

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GET A TAKE

DOWN LIKE THAT.

>> COULD WE SEE A BIG UPSET

IN THE BELL TORE CAGE?

DERREK ANDERSON WOULD NOT

CLASSIFY THIS AS AN UPSET.

REALISTICALLY THE MMA WORLD

WOULD.

A KICK AND WALK.

ANDERSON THROWING A LOT OF

KICKS IN THIS FIGHT.

>> NONE OF THEM WITH POWER,

NONE OF THEM HURTING PIT BULL,

BUT YOU HIT HIM WITH A DOZEN,

YOU SEE THE BLOOD AND SWELLING

AROUND THE MOUTH THAT.

'S WHAT YOU TEACH IN THE GYM,

YOU DON'T HAVE TO KNOCK OUT.

DOING.

SCORE, SCORE, SCORE.

MMA JUDGES LOOK AT BODY

IS WINNING?

>> GO IN WITH CONFIDENCE AND

SWAGGER.

ANDERSON, THIS IS HIS HOUSE.

>> ANDERSON FAKING IN THE

RIGHT HAND.

>> NEVER SEEN PIT BULL BACK

UP THIS MUCH AND CIRCLE THIS

MUCH.

NOTHING YET AND PIT BULL HAS

LOST NOTHING YET

KICK, BLOCKED BUT SHOWED

LANDED INTO THE CAGE.

SHOULDER STRIKE FROM FILL

CONES.

THAT'S REALLY SMART.

SHOULDER STRIKE FROM KIMBALL

EARLIER AND NOW SHOULDER

STRIKE FROM FILL CONES.

THAT'S THE CHOICE YOU MAKE

AND THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT

GOING THROUGH THAT LIKE THAT

WITH A STRIKER AS DANGEROUS AS

SHLEMEMKO, HE COMES IN WITH

CONFIDENCE, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS

BODY.

ONE THING COOPER SAID, I'LL

SPAR WITH HIM.

HE DOESN'T SPAR.

HE THINKS YOU'RE READY AND

YOU'RE NOT.

ALEXANDER SHLEMENKO CAME TO

BELLATOR IN 2010.

JIMMY HE TOLD US TWO MEMORABLE

THINGS.

MY KNEES ARE A GIFT FROM GOD.

>> HE HAD A LOT OF CONVICTION

BEHIND THOSE STATEMENTS.

FOR A SOUTH PAW, HIS TIMING

>> VERY POWERFUL KICK TO THE

BODY BY SOLEMN.

TRYING TO INITIATE THE BODY

LOCK.

>> SOLEMN STILL NEVER ALWAYS

ANGLING.

COOPER OUT OF HIS RHYTHM OR

RANGE TO FIGHT.

THAT PUNCH FROM THE SOUTH PAW

THE LEAD RIGHT HAND.

SOLEMN'S FOOT WORK MAKES THAT

VERY HARD TO LAND

>> RIGHT BY COOPER, FINAL

POINT, SOLEMN SADIE NEVER GO

100 PERCENT IN SPARRING.

IF COOPER THOUGHT HE WAS DOING

WELL AGAINST ME HE WAS SADLY

MISTAKEN.

>> THE HALLMARK OF SOLEMN.

>> PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW, WHO

HAVE NEVER DONE COMBAT, DON'T

KNOW.

BASED UPON THE SPIN THERE, A

LOT OF GUYS DO.

USUALLY NOT BACK AT THE GYM.

THAT'S PART OF THEIR ROUTINE.

>> COOPER GOING FOR THE TAKE

DOWN, BUT LOST HIS BALANCE

THERE.

>> THE DEFENSE BY SOLEMN,

BACK TO HIS FEET.

SOLEMN WANTS TO KEEP THIS

FIGHT.

NO MISTAKE.

WE ASKED HIM WHAT'S THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TAKING ON

BRETT COOPER?

AND HE SAID I WORKED A LOT ON

FROM BOTH MEN.

>> YOU HEAR THE SPINNING

SHOT, BANG, RIGHT TO THE HEAD.

YOU SEE HERE THAT'S A SHORT

ON HIS HEELS.

>> YOU HEARD IT FROM THE

CORNER, CHANGE YOUR LEVEL,

KEEP HIM GUESSING.

>> JIMMY HOW DID YOU SEE

ROUND ONE?

>> I GAVE IT 10 TO ROUND,

SOLEMN.

COOPER HAD HIM HURT BUT SOLEMN

LANDED MORE STRIKES.

NOTHING ABOUT OR LIKED

FIGHTING SOMEONE YOU WERE A

SPARRING PARTNER?

>> I NEVER HAD TO FIGHT A

SPARRING PARTNER.

THERE WERE A LOT OF GUYS IN

TOURNAMENTS BUT NEVER HAD TO

FIGHT A SPARRING PARTNER.

I HAD A GAME PLAN I LIKE TO

COUNT ON.

THERE WERE TIMES I LIKE TO

FIGHT AND WANT TO KNOW ONE

THING

>> SOLEMN THROWS THE BODY

KICK.

>> SO YOU WOULD SAY THE

SERIES, IT'S A DISADVANTAGE

>> I WOULD.

THERE'S CERTAIN COMFORT LEVELS

OF HAVING BEEN SOMETHING

AROUND, NOT A SURPRISE.

A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT FIGHT

SOLEMN ARE DEER IN THE

HEADLIGHTS.

BRETT COOPER DOES, FOR BETTER

OR WORSE.

>> BLOOD ON COOPER'S BACK BUT

THE BLOOD OUT OF SOLEMN'S LEFT

EYE.

AND HE BACK GIFTS.

SOLEMN IS NOW BLOODY.

AND THE SHOT FROM COOPER

DRIVES THROUGH AND GETS THE

TAKE DOWN.

SOLEMN BACK TO HIS FEET.

SOLEMN KEEPING HIMSELF

GROUNDED.

TO AVOID COOPER'S KNEES TO THE

HEAD.

COOPER NEEDS THE THIGH.

A LITTLE SURPRISED BRETT

COOPER, HIS CONFIDENCE REALLY

HIGH IN THIS FIGHT, TALK ABOUT

HIS MENTAL CONSISTENCY, THE

REFEREE WANTS TO KEEP THIS

MOVING.

BACK TO THE STAND UP.

AND THAT'S NOT A GOOD CUT, A

BAD ONE OVER THE EYE OF

SOLEMN.

THAT'S A DEEP ONE, GOOD RIGHT

HAND BY COOPER

>> I GUESS A GOOD CUT WOULD

BE IN THE SCALP

>> OR ON THE KNEE

>> ANY CUT IS BAD.

>> SOLEMN TURNING IT UP.

>> ONE THING SOLEMN DOES, A

LOT OF FIGHTERS DON'T, WORKING

THE BODY WELL.

LEADING THAT BODY SHOT, LEAVES

YOU VULNERABLE.

>> A GOOD LEFT BY SOLEMN.

>> GOING TO TURN UP THE

INCENSE AT THIS, WITH A

COUNTER RIGHT.

>> GOOD SHORT RIGHT BY

SOLEMN.

AND JUST MISSING WITH THAT

STEEL THIS ROUND BACK.

GOING TO STEEL THIS ROUND FAIR

AND SQUARE.

SOLEMN IS VERY RED ON THE

INSIDE OF HIS RIGHT KNEE

COURTESY OF THOSE KICKS.

>> OUT OF THE CORNER BY

DAVID.

>> MISSING BADLY

>> GOOD RIGHT OVER THE BLOCK.

THAT HAD TO PARTIALLY LAND.

SOLEMN TURNING UP THE VOLUME.

HE'S GOT COOPER IN BIG TROUBLE

NOW.

COOPER NOW IS LOOKING TO

FINISH, SOLEMN HOLDING ON.

SOLEMN DEFINITELY WOBBLED.

SOLEMN SENSES THE END BUT CAN

HE FIND THE FINISH LINE?

HE'S STILL IN IT.

STILL LOOKING AT THE REF,

DON'T STOP THIS FIGHT

>> SOLEMN IS RETREATING.

BLOOD POURING OUT OF HIS LEFT

EYE AND DEFINITELY ROCKED.

GREAT TAKE DOWN BY COOPER.

WOW, WHAT A ROUND.

>> GREAT FINISH TO THAT ROUND

BY BRETT COOPER

>> SOLEMN PLAYED TO THE

REFEREE AND PLAYED TO THE

CROWD BUT HE WAS DEFINITELY

HURT.

FOR THE OLD BOXING FANS, HE

GOT CLEANED AND WITH CLOWNING

AND MUGGING HE WAS HURT BADLY.

THAT'S PART OF WHAT SOLEMN WAS

DOING, MAKE NO MISTAKE, HE WAS

BADLY HURT.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

HEAD KICK BLOCK, COOPER IS

HURT FOR SURE HERE.

SOLEMN SENSES BLOOD WITH THAT

RIGHT HAND.

LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFULLY TIMED

RIGHT HAND.

SOLEMN IS HOLDING ON TO EDGE

FOR DEER LIFE.

THAT'S 10 MORE SECONDS.

THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE END

OF THE FIGHT HERE, END OF THE

ROUND BEAUTIFUL TAKE DOWN.

LOOK AT THAT STOOP.

IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN BETTER FOR

COOPER TO KEEP IT ON THE FEED.

SOLEMN WAS WOULD BEBLY.

>> TREATING THE EYE OF

SOLEMN.

CUT HIGH ON THE LEFT LID

OUTSIDE OF THE LEFT BROW

>> FIVE TOTAL ROUNDS HAVE NOW

BEEN COMPLETED BETWEEN THESE

FIGHTERS.

THREE ROUNDS A UNANIMOUS WIN

IN THE PRIOR FIGHT FOR SOLEMN.

JIMMY, HOW DO YOU HAVE IT

SCORED?

>> I HAVE IT SCORED ALL EVEN

NOW.

I GAVE SOLEMN THE FIRST ROUND,

I GIVE COOPER ROUND NUMBER

TWO.

>> NEXT WEEK WE RETURN TO

FRIDAY NIGHTS, 9:00 P.M.

EASTERN TIME, OUR REGULAR TIME

NOT BEEN DISAPPOINTING.

BOTH GUYS EXCHANGING BIG

EXCHANGES.

>> SOLEMN HAS TO HIT YOU A

LOT TO FINISH A FIGHT.

UNLOADS THEM.

IN 50 MINUTES DOESN'T HURT YOU

WITH ANY ONE SHOT.

I THINK HE HAS TO STUN COOPER

TO GET IT BACK IN HIS FAVOR

>> LAND THE INSIDE LEFT AND

KNEE TO THE BODY.

FROM THE CHAMPION SLOAN

SOLEMN, THE BODY SHOT.

>> HE HIT HIM WITH 50 SHOTS.

THE PROBLEM IS THE OTHER GUY

SHOULD BE OUT.

>> SOLEMN VERY ACCURATE, GOOD

COMBINATION, BUT A LITTLE MORE

ONE PUNCH POWER

>> SOLEMN IS A LOT OF THINGS

BUT NOT A BIG FIGHTER.

>> THIS FIGHT ALREADY BETTER.

WE'RE ALREADY NOW IN ROUND

THREE

>> NICE SHOT.

GOOD DEFENSE BY SOLEMN.

>> EVEN THOUGH HE HAS

VICIOUS, ACCURATE AND

UNORGANIZATION COX FIGHTS, HE

DOESN'T HAVE THAT HUGE

PUNCHING POWER.

HE DOES NOT.

HE'S LASER FOCUSED ACCURATE

WITH THIS STRIKE.

SHOWING TO SHOW THAT ON THE

RIGHT

>> MINUTE 15 REMAINING IN

ROUND THREE

>> COOPER VERY MUCH IN THIS

FIGHT.

>> YOU IN FACT, HAVE COOP

IRWINING RIGHT NOW, TWO ROUNDS

TO NONE.

>> DOUG MARSHALL WAS SUPPOSED

TO BE IN HERE TOP.

COOPER MAKING THE MOST OF THE

OPPORTUNITY.

>> BIG RIGHT FROM SOLEMN IN A

TAKE DOWN ATTEMPT.

I THINK THIS LOOKS MORE LIKE A

SOLEMN ROUND, COOPER TRYING TO

LAND WITH THE BIG COUNTER

SHOT.

BUT SOLEMN LANDING MORE

PUNCHES THIS ROUND.

>> JIMMY YOU AND I BEFORE

COMING TO BELL CORE FOLLOWED A

LOT OF SHOTS IN RUSSIA.

ONE THING WE FOUND OUT,

THEY'RE NOT THAT MUCH TROUBLE.

>> NO THEY'RE NOT

>> PUTTING HIS HEAD RIGHT

INTO THE SOLEMN GILL TEEN BUT

NOT EVEN SQUEEZING.

WIDE BASE FROM SOLEMN.

>> COOPER DOES NOT HAVE A

WRESTLING BACKGROUND.

HE PICKS YOU UP AND DUMPS YOU.

VERY GOOD AT THAT POWER EDGE.

LIKE THAT.

SOLEMN POPPING BACK TO HIS

FEET.

AND HE DOES.

>> COOPER FINISHED ROUND TWO

EXTREMELY WELL, THE CHAMPION

SLOAN SOLEMN SOLEMN.

LANDING MORE MUCH LIKE THE

FIRST ROUND HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE

TO FIND THE BIG SHOT.

THREE.

THREE MINUTES REMAINING IN

THIS ROUND OF THE FIGHT.

WILL SOLEMN SUCCESSFULLY

DEFEND HIS TITLE FOR THE FIRST

TIME?

>> SOLEMN LOOKING ECONOMY NOT

CAL, CAPTURING COOPER GRABBING

THE LEG.

LOOK AT COOPER AVOIDING THE

KNEE TO THE HEAD BUT TOOK A

BIG KNEE TO THE BODY.

ROUND.

ROUNDS FOUR AND FIVE ARE SO

TOUGH.

SOLEMN HAS BEEN IN DEEP WATER

BEFORE.

COOPER BACKS OFF.

THAT'S WHAT IT'S FOR.

YOU WAVE THE GUY, I'M NOT

HURT.

THAT'S THE TIME YOU GO AFTER

HIM, MAKE HIM PROVE HE'S NOT

HURT.

MAKE COOPER PROVE HIS WORD

HE'S NOT HURT.

THINK SOLEMN IS DOING THE

RUSSIAN VERSION OF THAT THERE.

IMPRESSIVE.

SHORT HOOKS AND SHORT ELBOWS.

NOT AT ALL SURE.

>> STANDING CENTER OF THE

BELLATOR CAGE.

HE GETS EASILY BLOCKED.

FANTASTIC PACKED CROWD HERE IN

CONNECTICUT.

THEY'RE DRAWING BRETT COOPER

TO VICTORY.

>> HARD TO SEE WHAT THEY WANT

FROM SOLEMN.

COOPER GOING TO GET THE CROWD

MOST OF THE TIME, BUT MAN

SOLEMN.

SEE WHAT THEY'RE PUTTING ON

HERE A CLASSIC FIGHT.

>> THE BACK KICK JUST BEFORE

THE BELL.

>> JUST A SLIGHT NOTE.

IF THE STRIKE STARTS BEFORE

THE BELL ROUNDS, DOESN'T

MATTER IF IT LANDS AFTER THE

BELL.

THAT'S YOUR DECISION AS A

JUDGE.

HERE IS SOLEMN ACCURATE IN

THAT FOURTH ROUND, HALF HOOK

ON THE JAW, THOUGHT COOPER

MIGHT BE DONE.

BEAUTIFUL RIGHT HOOK ON THE

SEE THIS HERE, FLEEING HIM IN

THE RIBS, BEAUTIFUL SHOT.

AGGRESSIVE THROUGHOUT,

BE THINKING THINKING GROUND AND POUND,

NOT SUBMISSION.

COOPER BACK TO HIS FEET.

WHAT DOES COOPER HAVE LEFT IN

THE TANK, 1:40 LEFT IN THE

FIGHT

>> COOPER HAS BEEN CUT IN

THIS FIGHT.

A BIG ONE FROM SOLEMN.

JUST MISSED OVER THE TOP OF

THE MADE

DOWN FROM SOLEMN.

REMEMBER COOPER BACKS OFF SO A

SOLEMN WENT RIGHT AFTER HIM.

REMEMBER WHEN YOU'RE SCORING

AT HOME, GIVE THEM EQUAL

WEIGHT, AFFECT I HAVE IT

STRIKE AND GAP LING.

WEIGHING IN WITH THE RIGHT

LAND BY COOPER.

ALEXANDER SHLEMENKO.

>> BOTH FIGHTERS BLOODIED.

BOTH WERE IN DANGER OF BEING

STOPPED IN THIS FIGHT.

SOLEMN IN ROUND TWO, COOPER IN

ROUND FOUR.

THEIR FIRST FIGHT WENT THE

DISTANCE, THAT WAS THREE

ROUNDS.

TONIGHT WE GO TO THE DISTANCE,

THIS IS FIVE ROUNDS.

HERE IS THE FIGHT REPLAY

BROUGHT TO YOU BY AMERICA'S

NAVY, A FORCE FOR GOOD

>> LOOKING AT IT HERE, THE

STORY OF THE FIFTH AND FINAL

ROUND THE STRIKING OF

ALEXANDER SHLEMENKO, SHORT

HOOK WITH THE KNEE RIGHT TO

THE RIBS, PREVIOUSLY IN THE

FIGHT, BUT STUFF LIKE THAT

THAT DROPPED HIM, GREAT POWER,

GREAT ACCURACY, BUT KEPT THE

PRESSURE ON BRETT COOPER FOR

FIVE ROUNDS.

I THINK THAT CARRIED HIM TO

VICTORY

>> JIMMY IN YOUR UNOFFICIAL

FINAL SCORE CARD

>> 45, 46, I ONLY GAVE COOPER

ROUND NUMBER TWO, ALL OF THE

REST WERE THE CHAMP.

>> NERVOUS EMPLOYMENTS

MOMENTS FOR THESE TWO MOMENTS.

WILL THAT MAN RETAIN HIS

TITLE?

WILL BRETT COOPER BECOME THE

WORLD WORLD MIDDLE HEAVY

WEIGHT CHAMPION?

>> LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

HAVING GONE THE DISTANCE WE GO

TO THE JUDGE'S SCORE CARDS.

ALL THREE JUDGES ALL SEE THE

FIGHT EXACTLY THE SAME 48 TO

47, BY EYE THAN UNANIMOUS DECISION AND

STILL THE BELLATOR MIDDLE

WEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION, SAND

SLAM.

>> LET'S GO TO JIMMY.

>> I'M HERE WITH THE WINNER

AND STILL THE BELLATOR MIDDLE

WEIGHT CHAMPION, SAND SLAM,

HOW DID IT FEEL TO DEFEND YOUR

TITLE NOT ONLY IN A COMPETITOR

LIKE COOPER BUT IN AN AMAZING

FIGHT.

>> THANK YOU FOR THE FIGHT.

ME.

THANK YOU.

HEY GUYS, DO YOU LIKE MY

FIGHT?

THANK YOU GUYS, THANK YOU FOR

YOUR SUPPORT.

MY FIGHT FOR YOU

>> HE DOES IT FOR THE MIDDLE

WEIGHT CHAMPION, SAND STORM

SOLEMN.

>> NOW 11 STRAIGHT WINS, 48

IN HIS CAREER, AND HE

SUCCESSFULLY DEFENDS HIS

BELLATOR WORLD TITLE WITH HIS

WIFE AND BABY DAUGHTER IN

ATTENDANCE.

ALEXANDER SHLEMENKO, IT WAS

DEFINITELY NOT EASY.
