NOVEMBER 23RD

AT 9:00 P.M. EASTERN

FROM NEW YORK CITY,

GLORY KICKBOXING ONCE AGAIN

COMES TO SPIKE TV.

THIS TIME, IT'S THE

LIGHTWEIGHTS' TURN TO TAKE

CENTER STAGE

IN THE FOUR-MAN TOURNAMENT

THAT WILL SEE THREE FIGHTS

IN ONE NIGHT TO DETERMINE

THE TOURNAMENT CHAMPION.

>> MAMA MIA,

WHAT A SPECTACULAR FINISH!

>> PLUS, IN THE HEADLINE EVENT,

IT'S A BATTLE OF EAST COAST

VERSUS WEST COAST

AS GLORY 10 TOURNAMENT CHAMPION

JOE SCHILLING

RETURNS TO THE RING

TO FACE WAYNE BARRETT.

GLORY 11 WAS THE FIRST LIVE

KICKBOXING EVENT EVER

ON SPIKE TV.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK BACK

AT GLORY 11.

THE HEADLINER SAW

TYRONE "KING OF THE RING" SPONG

LOOKING TO AVENGE A PREVIOUS

LOSS TO NATHAN CORBETT.

>> TYRONE SPONG,

THE BO JACKSON

OF COMBAT SPORTS.

>> VERY, VERY IMPRESSIVE

FIGHTER.

>> NATHAN "CARNAGE" CORBETT.

>> THIS GUY BRINGS IT,

AND HE HAS A VERY MEAN

TEMPERAMENT IN THE RING.

>> FIGHT FAIR. FIGHT HARD.

TOUCH GLOVES.

>> THE MUCH-ANTICIPATED REMATCH

IS UNDER WAY HERE AT GLORY 11

CHICAGO.

AND A QUICK START HERE, DUKE.

>> YEAH. YEAH.

THIS IS GONNA BE A WAR.

TWO OF THE MEANEST, TOUGHEST

STRIKERS IN THE LIGHT

HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION.

>> NICE COMBINATION BY CORBETT,

BUT SPONG RECOVERS WITH

A LIVER SHOT.

ONE MINUTE LEFT IN WHAT HAS BEEN

A TERRIFIC START

TO THIS REMATCH.

JUST MISSES

WITH THE RIGHT CROSS.

NOW SPONG--

CORBETT STICKS THE JAB.

RIGHT UPPERCUT WITH A COUNTER

LEFT HOOK BY SPONG RATTLES

CORBETT.

SPONG BLOWS TO THE BODY

WITH THE LEFT HOOK.

>> ROCKED HIM WITH THAT PUNCH.

>> SECOND ROUND BEGINS.

SPONG IN THE WHITE GLOVES,

CORBETT IN THE BLACK.

AND CORBETT GOES DOWN.

>> LOOK AT HIM TIME RIGHT OFF

THAT LOW KICK.

A GREAT HOOK RETURN.

AGAIN, HE WAS BAITING HIM.

HE LET HIM THROW THIS COMBO,

LOAD THE SHOULDER UP WHILE

HE WAS RECEIVING THE LOW KICK

TO GIVE THE PUNCH.

>> DOUBLE JAB,

COUNTER LOW KICK BY SPONG,

AND THE LEFT HOOK

DROPS CORBETT FOR THE SECOND

TIME IN THE ROUND!

WHAT A SHOT.

>> HE COMES OFF OF HIS OWN LOW

KICK, AND GREAT AROUND

THE GUARD.

FRONT HOOKS, A LITTLE TIGHT,

SWEET HOOK, AND TO MAKE IT,

THAT'S ALL SHE WROTE.

BEAUTIFUL HOOK.

>> AND IT IS OVER.

TYRONE SPONG, "THE KING OF THE

RING," DEFEATS NATHAN "CARNAGE"

CORBETT IN THE REMATCH.

PRIDE NEVER DIE, MY MAN.

>> $250,000 WAS ON THE LINE

IN THE HEAVYWEIGHT TOURNAMENT.

IN THE FIRST FIGHT,

HEAVILY FAVORED AND NUMBER TWO

RANKED GOKHAN SAKI

FACED A YOUNG UP-AND-COMER:

SIXTH RANKED RICO VERHOEVEN.

>> WE'RE ABOUT TO KICK OFF

THE ONE-NIGHT FOUR-MAN

HEAVYWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

WITH THE NUMBER TWO RANKED

GOKHAN SAKI AGAINST

RICO VERHOEVEN.

>> HE SAID CONFIDENTLY THAT HE'S

GONNA SHOCK THE WORLD

AND TAKE HOME THE BELT.

[bell dings]

>> THE FAVORITE, GOKHAN SAKI,

IMMEDIATELY GOING ON THE ATTACK

WITH A CRISP PUNCHING

COMBINATION AGAINST THE BIGGER

VERHOEVEN, AND THAT IS RULED A--

OH, AND SAKI TAKING UMBRAGE

WITH THE REFEREE, WAGNER,

WHO RULED THAT A KNOCKDOWN.

DUKE, DO YOU AGREE?

>> I DIDN'T THINK SO.

IT WAS A PUSHDOWN, IF ANYTHING.

>> AND THE CROWD

STARTS CHANTING.

SAKI HAS VERHOEVEN

ON THE ATTACK.

>> RICO BALBOA LOOKING TO SHOCK

THE WORLD.

>> JUST PASSED THE MIDWAY

POINT.

LEAD LEFT HOOK BY SAKI

BLOCKED BY VERHOEVEN, WHO AGAIN

SWEEPS THE LEG, AND AGAIN,

NO CLOSER SWEEPS ALLOWED.

>> NICE LOW KICK.

IT HURT HIM TOO.

>> THE WINNER MUST WIN TWO

FIGHTS IN ONE NIGHT,

WALKS AWAY WITH THE BELT

AND THE $250,000 GRAND PRIZE.

AS SAKI NOW BEGINS TO PUT

TOGETHER HIS PUNCHING

COMBINATIONS, GOING BEHIND THE

GUARD WITH A LEFT HOOK

AND THE RIGHT HAND.

AND NOW VERHOEVEN OFF-BALANCE

WITH THAT RIGHT HAND ALONG THE

ROPES AS SAKI IS ON THE PROWL.

>> AND THAT'S HOW HE'S GONNA BE

SUCCESSFUL.

HE'S GOT TO BACK

THIS BIG YOUNG KID UP.

>> JAB BY SAKI.

THERE'S A LEFT HOOK TO THE LIVER

BY VERHOEVEN.

A VERY COMPETITIVE CONTEST.

WITH ONE MINUTE LEFT IN THE

FIGHT, WHO WANTS IT MORE?

WHO WANTS TO MAKE

A DEFINITIVE STATEMENT?

VERHOEVEN HAS SAKI ON THE ROPES.

THE FIRST SEMIFINAL IS HEADED

TO THE JUDGES' SCORECARDS.

IS AN UPSET IN THE MAKING HERE

IN CHICAGO?

SPINNING BACK FIST

BY SAKI LANDS.

[bell dings]

>> FOR YOUR WINNER,

RICO VERHOEVEN!

>> AND RICO VERHOEVEN

HAS DONE IT.

HE UPSETS GOKHAN SAKI.

VERHOEVEN IS ON HIS WAY

TO THE FINAL.

>> AFTER HIS SHOCKING DEFEAT

OF SAKI,

VERHOEVEN ENTERED THE RING

FOR A SECOND TIME THAT NIGHT

TO TAKE ON NUMBER THREE RANKED

DANIEL "THE SAVAGE SAMURAI"

GHITA.

GHITA HAD ADVANCED TO THE FINAL

WITH A LIGHTNING-QUICK

FIRST-ROUND KNOCKOUT

OF "BRADDOCK" SILVA.

>> OH.

>> SILVA IS DOWN,

AND IT'S OVER.

>> TIMED THEM WELL OFF THE KICK,

AND HE CAUGHT HIM RIGHT THERE,

RIGHT ON THE TEMPLE.

>> WITH THE TOURNAMENT

CHAMPIONSHIP AT STAKE, IT WAS

TIME FOR THE UNDERDOG,

VERHOEVEN, TO PUT IT ALL

ON THE LINE.

>> WE ARE SET FOR

THE TOURNAMENT FINAL.

DANIEL GHITA WILL FACE

THE UPSTART, RICO VERHOEVEN.

THE WINNER TO RECEIVE

THE TOURNAMENT TITLE

AND $250,000 CASH.

[bell dings]

AS VERHOEVEN COMES UP,

STALKING GHITA,

BUT IT'S GHITA THAT DELIVERS

THE FIRST SIGNATURE BLOW,

THAT LIVER KICK.

THERE'S A NICE STRAIGHT

RIGHT HAND THROUGH THE GUARD

BY VERHOEVEN.

>> VERHOEVEN GETS STRONGER

AS THE FIGHT COMES ON.

HE GETS IN THERE,

AND HE GETS GOING,

AND HE GETS BETTER.

NICE UPPERCUT.

>> LEFT UPPERCUT, RIGHT HAND

BY VERHOEVEN, BUT GHITA COMES

BACK WITH A COMBINATION

OF HIS OWN.

THEY ARE GOING TOE-TO-TOE

HERE IN CHICAGO.

THERE'S A LEFT HEAD KICK

BY GHITA THAT CONNECTS.

ANOTHER LEFT HEAD KICK,

TAKING A PAGE OUT OF

MIRKO CRO COP'S PLAYBOOK.

HIS HEAD JUST GOT POPPED BACK

LIKE A PEZ DISPENSER

WITH THAT RIGHT UPPERCUT.

>> GHITA'S DOING A GREAT JOB

OF HITTING THE BODY,

BUT VERHOEVEN IS DURABLE, MAN.

HE CAME BACK WITH THAT UPPERCUT.

>> LESS THAN A MINUTE LEFT HERE

AT GLORY 11 CHICAGO.

STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND THROUGH

THE GUARD BY VERHOEVEN.

THE PUSH KICK BY VERHOEVEN.

THE CROWD ANTICIPATING

THE END OF THE BOUT.

THESE TWO ARE LEAVING IT ALL

IN THE GLORY RING.

FINAL 30 SECONDS OF THE FIGHT.

LEFT HOOK BY VERHOEVEN.

LEFT KICK BY GHITA.

RIGHT UPPERCUT BY VERHOEVEN.

WITH 15 SECONDS LEFT,

WE'RE GONNA LET THE CROWD HERE

IN CHICAGO TAKE YOU

TO THE FINAL BELL

OF THE GLORY FOUR-MAN

HEAVYWEIGHT TOURNAMENT FINAL.

[crowd cheering]

WHAT A FIGHT.

WHAT A NIGHT IN THE WINDY CITY.

[bell dings]

>> A UNANIMOUS DECISION

FOR YOUR WINNER

AND NOW GLORY HEAVYWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT WORLD CHAMPION,

RICO VERHOEVEN!

>> THE 24-YEAR-OLD PRINCE OF

KICKBOXING, RICO VERHOEVEN,

HAS DONE IT.

>> AT GLORY 12 NEW YORK,

IT'LL BE THE LIGHTWEIGHTS' TURN

FOR THE FOUR-MAN THREE-FIGHT

TOURNAMENT.

WE PREVIEW THE COMPETITORS

WHEN WE RETURN.

>> LIVE FROM NEW YORK CITY,

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23RD,

GLORY RETURNS TO SPIKE TV.

THE SPOTLIGHT WILL SHINE

ON THE LIGHTWEIGHTS

AS THE TOP FOUR FIGHTERS

COMPETE FOR THE TOURNAMENT

CHAMPIONSHIP AND $150,000.

IN THE FIRST SEMIFINAL IS

NUMBER ONE RANKED CONTENDER

ROBIN VAN ROOSMALEN.

THE 24-YEAR-OLD DUTCH FIGHTER

HAS SPENT THE LAST NINE YEARS

PREPARING FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY.

>> OH.

>> OH, HIS VINTAGE--ROBIN--

>> UH-OH.

THOMAS IS HURT.

HE'S HURT.

HE'S GOING DOWN.

>> WE'VE GOT A STANDING

EIGHT COUNT AT TIM THOMAS.

>> I THINK I PROVED EVERYONE

THAT I'M THE REAL NUMBER ONE.

I'M THE BEST FIGHTER FOR REAL.

>> VAN ROOSMALEN IS ANSWERING.

>> YES.

WHOA, LOOK OUT.

HERE IT COMES.

OH, AND THERE YOU GO.

>> I'M ALWAYS GOING

FOR THE KNOCKOUT.

ESPECIALLY IN A TOURNAMENT,

I DON'T WANT TO WIN ON POINTS.

I ALWAYS WANT TO WIN

BY KNOCKOUT.

>> ROBIN VAN ROOSMALEN

DOES THINGS HIS WAY.

>> I LIKE TO FIGHT.

I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

I'M EXCITED, 'CAUSE

MADISON SQUARE GARDEN IS--

A LOT OF BIG FIGHTERS

HAVE FOUGHT THERE.

ALL THE LEGENDS HAVE FIGHT

THERE, SO FOR ME, IT'S AN HONOR

TO FIGHT THERE.

I JUST WANT TO BE THE BEST

IN WHAT I LOVE TO DO.

>> HIS OPPONENT ACROSS THE RING:

NUMBER THREE RANKED DAVIT KIRIA.

THE 25-YEAR-OLD RUSSIAN

MADE HIS U.S. DEBUT

IN LOS ANGELES AT GLORY 10.

KIRIA HOPES THE NEW YORK CITY

CROWD WILL APPRECIATE HIS

AGGRESSIVE STYLE

AND KARATE-BASED TECHNIQUES.

>> WE ARE SAME HEIGHT.

WE ALMOST HAVE THE SAME STYLE.

HE'S GOOD.

HE'S NUMBER ONE TODAY.

BUT I HAVE A DREAM TO BE

NUMBER ONE, SO I WILL DO

EVERYTHING FOR THAT.

HE'S A HARD PUNCHER,

HARD KICKER, BUT ME TOO.

>> HE'S EXPLOSIVE. HE'S--

I'M EXPLOSIVE, SO I THINK--

I THINK WE GOT A GOOD FIGHT.

>> THE SECOND SEMIFINAL FEATURES

THE MAN WHO MOST FEEL IS THE

BEST POUND-FOR-POUND KICKBOXER

IN THE WORLD:

GIORGIO PETROSYAN.

WITH A PERFECT 5-0 RECORD,

THE ITALIAN FIGHTER IS NICKNAMED

"THE DOCTOR"

BECAUSE HE FIGHTS

WITH A SURGICAL PRECISION

THAT NO OTHER FIGHTER IN THE

SPORT CAN MATCH.

>> [speaking Italian]

>> IT'S AS IF HE KNOWS

WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO.

>> HIS OPPONENT:

ANDY "THE MACHINE" RISTIE.

CURRENTLY RANKED NUMBER FOUR

AND THE OLDEST FIGHTER

IN THE TOURNAMENT,

RISTIE'S DEVASTATING KNEE

STRIKES ARE THE MAIN REASON

HE'S UNDEFEATED

IN GLORY COMPETITION.

RISTIE HAS MADE IT NO SECRET

HE PLANS ON HANDING PETROSYAN

HIS FIRST LOSS.

>> PETROSYAN, HE DON'T COME

TO FIGHT.

HE'S COME TO STAND AND--

AND FIGHT BACKWARDS, YOU KNOW,

AND IT'S NOT A STYLE

OF FIGHTING.

>> [speaking Italian]

>> WHEN THE FIGHT HAS BEGIN,

THEN PEOPLE GONNA SEE

I'M COMING TO SHOCK THE WORLD,

BECAUSE I WANT TO BE

THE NUMBER ONE FIGHTER NOW.

HE'S STANDING ON MY PLACE.

>> [speaking Italian]

>> THE WINNERS OF EACH SEMIFINAL

WILL FIGHT AGAIN THAT NIGHT

FOR THE LIGHTWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT BELT

AND $150,000.

THE HEADLINE FIGHT OF GLORY 12

FEATURES JOE SCHILLING.

IN SEPTEMBER,

SCHILLING ENTERED THE RING

AT GLORY 10 ON A MISSION TO WIN

THE MIDDLEWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

CHAMPIONSHIP, WHICH MEANT

DEFEATING TWO FIGHTERS

IN A SINGLE NIGHT.

UP FIRST, KENGO SHIMIZU.

>> AND NOW A BARRAGE OF KNEES.

EATS ANOTHER--A COUPLE OF MORE

PUSH KICKS AND THEN A LEFT KICK

TO THE LIVER, AND A KNEE AND

ANOTHER KNEE BY SCHILLING.

RIGHT UPPERCUT

BY "STITCH 'EM UP" SCHILLING.

OH!

>> OH!

>> SPINNING KICK

LANDED THERE BY SCHILLING,

HURTING SHIMIZU.

AND THERE'S A SPINNING

BACK FIST BY SCHILLING.

THERE'S A MEAN RIGHT HAND

BEHIND THE GUARD.

>> JOE "STITCH 'EM UP"

SCHILLING!

>> TOUCH 'EM UP.

LET'S GO.

>> IN SCHILLING'S WAY OF THE

TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP BELT:

NUMBER ONE RANKED ARTEM LEVIN.

>> OH, AND SCHILLING JUST

DROPPED LEVIN!

RIGHT HAND OVER THE TOP

BY LEVIN.

RIGHT HAND BY SCHILLING.

SPINNING BACK FIST BY LEVIN.

RIGHT HAND LEAD, AND THE LEFT

HAND TAGS SCHILLING BY LEVIN.

BACK FIST.

>> HE'S GETTING HURT HERE.

>> AND LEVIN NOW PUTTING

THE PRESSURE ON JOE SCHILLING.

A MINUTE LEFT IN THE FIGHT.

>> AFTER THREE ROUNDS,

IT WENT TO THE JUDGES.

>> WE SENT IT TO THE JUDGES'

SCORECARD.

THEY GIVE US BACK

A MAJORITY DRAW.

MAJORITY DRAW MEANS

WE GO TO A SUDDEN VICTORY

EXTRA ROUND.

[bell dings]

>> THE BELL, AND AWAY WE GO.

THERE'S A RIGHT HAND BY

SCHILLING THAT DROPPED LEVIN.

AND THE REFEREE, MARCOS ROSALES,

HAS RULED IT A KNOCKDOWN.

[bell dings]

>> FOR YOUR WINNER

AND NOW GLORY MIDDLEWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT WORLD CHAMPION,

JOE SCHILLING!

[bell dings]

>> WHEN WE RETURN,

THE HEADLINE EVENT OF GLORY 12

WILL FEATURE

AN EAST COAST-WEST COAST BATTLE

AS NEW YORK'S WAYNE BARRETT

CHALLENGES CALIFORNIA'S

JOE SCHILLING.

>> HE THINKS HE KNOWS

WHAT I HAVE.

CAN HE BEAT WHAT I HAVE,

YOU KNOW?

I DON'T THINK HE CAN BEAT IT,

AND THAT'S JUST THE WAY IT IS.

>> NEW YORK CITY IS HOME

TO THE MECCA OF BOXING,

THE FAMED MADISON SQUARE GARDEN.

AND ON NOVEMBER 23RD,

IT WILL WELCOME GLORY KICKBOXING

FOR THE FIRST TIME.

THE HEADLINE FIGHT OF THE NIGHT

WILL SEE THE MIDDLEWEIGHTS IN

ACTION AS GLORY 10 TOURNAMENT

CHAMPION JOE SCHILLING

ENTERS THE RING TO TAKE ON

NEW YORK'S OWN WAYNE BARRETT.

>> BEING THAT THE FIGHT IS

TAKING PLACE IN MADISON SQUARE

GARDEN AND I'M THE MAIN EVENT

REALLY, TO ME, DOESN'T MATTER.

THE ONE THING THAT I DID WHEN

I SIGNED THIS CONTRACT IS,

I SIGNED ON TO FIGHT.

DOESN'T MATTER IF IT'S THE MAIN

EVENT, THE UNDERCARD.

YOU KNOW, DOESN'T MATTER

IF WE'RE DOING IT

IN A PARKING LOT.

YOU KNOW, I'M HERE TO FIGHT.

I'M FOCUSED ON WHAT MY MISSION

IS, AND MY MISSION IS TO BE

THE BEST FIGHTER IN THE WORLD.

>> THE COMBINATION

FROM WAYNE BARRETT.

>> THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE.

>> WHEN I'M IN THE RING,

EVERYTHING SLOWS DOWN.

I FEEL AT HOME.

I FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE.

IT'S A SERENE FEELING, ACTUALLY.

I DON'T EVER FEEL AFRAID.

I DON'T EVER FEEL PRESSURED.

EVERYTHING JUST FEELS

VERY NATURAL.

>> AND DOWN GOES PLOTKIN,

AND REFEREE STELL STOPS

THE FIGHT IMMEDIATELY.

>> WAYNE BARRETT

IS JUST TOO SLICK.

>> I VIEW JOE AS JUST ANOTHER

HUMAN BEING.

I TRY NOT TO GET CAUGHT UP

INTO THE HYPE OF WHAT TITLES

THEY WIN, WHO THEY ARE,

WHAT HE'S DONE.

I JUST SEE IT AS TWO MARTIAL

ARTISTS GOING AGAINST

EACH OTHER.

YOU KNOW, JOE SAYS HE'S THE MAN,

AND I FEEL LIKE I AM A BETTER

FIGHTER THAN JOE.

THE BIGGEST THING I THINK

THAT I HAVE THAT A LOT OF GUYS

HAVEN'T GOTTEN A CHANCE TO SEE

YET IS THAT I CAN ADAPT IN A

FIGHT, YOU KNOW, SO IF HE WANTS

TO MAKE IT A BRAWL, I'LL KNOW

HOW TO COME OUT ON TOP.

IF HE WANTS TO MAKE IT

A TECHNICAL FIGHT, I THINK--

WHICH IS THE WORST THING

HE CAN DO--

YOU KNOW, I CAN MAKE IT

A TECHNICAL FIGHT.

SO HOWEVER HE WANTS TO TAKE IT,

I'LL TAKE IT THERE.

BUT, YOU KNOW, I'M NOT GONNA

GIVE HIM A CHANCE TO GET

COMFORTABLE IN THERE.

>> OH-HO!

>> WAYNE BARRETT FLOORS

MIKE LEMAIRE.

>> MY MESSAGE TO JOE IS JUST

BASICALLY COME READY TO FIGHT.

DON'T UNDERESTIMATE ME.

>> I DON'T KNOW A WHOLE LOT

ABOUT WAYNE BARRETT.

WE MET IN GLORY L.A.

HE HAD DONE AN INTERVIEW AND

SAID THAT HE THOUGHT THAT

MY WEAKNESS WAS MY CHIN,

AND AFTER THE FIRST FIGHT,

HE WAS WALKING PAST MY LOCKER,

AND I SAID, "HEY, WAE,

COME HERE.

MY CHIN IS GOLD.

DON'T EVER DOUBT MY CHIN."

HE KIND OF LAUGHED,

AND THAT WAS REALLY ALL

THAT WE TALKED ABOUT.

HE'S A YOUNG GUY.

HE HASN'T BEEN IN THE SPORT

VERY LONG.

I READ AN ARTICLE WHERE HE SAID

HE BELIEVES IN DESTINY

AND THIS FIGHT IS HIS DESTINY

AND...

I THINK THAT'S REAL CUTE

THAT HIS DESTINY IS TO

ACCOMPLISH THE PINNACLE OF THE

SPORT AFTER THREE PRO FIGHTS.

I GUESS I GOT SCREWED

ON MY DESTINY.

IT TOOK ME 14 YEARS, TWO KNEE

SURGERIES, BEING BROKE,

BATTLING WITH ALL KINDS

OF UPS AND DOWNS.

YOU KNOW, I GUESS I TOOK THE

LONG ROAD TO GET HERE.

BUT I'M NOT GONNA LET HIM TAKE

IT FROM ME.

>> OH, AND SCHILLING JUST

DROPPED LEVIN!

WOW.

>> THE COMPETITION HE'S FOUGHT

ISN'T MY LEVEL.

I JUST BEAT THE NUMBER ONE GUY

IN THE WORLD, AND HE JUST BEAT

A WRESTLER FROM NEW JERSEY.

SO, YOU KNOW,

I THINK A TRUE FIGHTER ALWAYS

WANTS TO FIGHT THE BEST

AND IS--YOU KNOW, MY GOAL

WAS ALWAYS TO FIGHT THE

CHAMPION, WHOEVER THAT WAS,

AND, YOU KNOW,

I RESPECT HIM FOR THAT.

I JUST THINK THAT HE'S BIT OFF

MORE THAN HE CAN CHEW.

>> SCHILLING IS INTENT

ON DESTROYING EVERYONE

IN HIS PATH, AND UNFORTUNATELY,

SHIMIZU HAPPENS TO BE THERE.

>> THERE ARE NO EASY FIGHTS

IN GLORY, SO I DON'T LOOK AT IT

AS, LIKE, AN INSULT THAT I HAVE

TO FIGHT THIS GUY OR THAT

HE'S A NOBODY.

YOU'RE ONLY AS GOOD IN THIS

SPORT AS YOUR LAST FIGHT.

I MADE THAT MISTAKE IN THE PAST

AND UNDERESTIMATED SOMEBODY,

AND I GOT KNOCKED OUT,

AND I LEARNED A LESSON

FROM THAT.

YOU KNOW, I'M LOOKING AT HIM

AS IF HE'S THE BADDEST MAN

ON THE PLANET, AND I'M COMING

TO KNOCK HIS TEETH OUT.
