DEREK ANDERSON, THE KNOCKOUT

SPECIALIST, LEVELED BRANDON

GERTZ IN THE OPENING ROUND

AGAINST MARCIN HELD, THE LEG

LOCK SPECIALIST.

RIGHT NOW, IT IS DEREK CAMPOS

VERSUS PATRICKY PITBULL.

DEREK CAMPOS, OF COURSE, TOOK ON

TIM WELCH IN THE OPENING ROUND,

DOMINATED HIM FOR 15 MINUTES.

THIS TIME AROUND, ANOTHER BIG

LIGHTWEIGHT WITH KNOCKOUT POWER,

PATRICKY PITBULL.

HE CAN LEVEL YOU ON THE FEET,

JUST ASK CAGE MAN RICKLES.

>> OUR TALE OF THE TAPE BROUGHT

CAMPOS IN THE GRAY TRUNKS,

BRAZILIAN PITBULL IN THE BLACK

AND WHITE TRUNKS.

>> LAST FEW BELLATOR

APPEARANCES, ONE THING ABOUT

PITBULL IS HE STARTED SLOWLY,

KIND OF GETTING HIS TIMING THE

FIRST ROUND.

OPENING ROUND OF THE TOURNAMENT,

TOOK IT SLOW IN THE FIRST ROUND,

GOT THE KNOCKOUT IN THE SECOND,

BUT HAD TO START AS FAST AS YOU

SAW HIM START EARLY IN THE

BELLATOR CAREER.

>> LOTS OF FAKES EARLY ON FROM

DEREK CAMPOS.

>> HE PROMISED TO BRAWL, TO COME

FORWARD.

HE WANTS TO MIX IT UP, MAKE HIS

WRESTLING, HIS GRAPPLING A

FACTOR IN THIS FIGHT.

>> PITBULL, NOT WHAT I CALL A

VERSATILE STRIKER, THROWS A LOT

OF DIFFERENT PUNCHES, THROWS

WITH AUTHORITY AND POWER EVERY

TIME.

>> LEAD LEFT HOOK, SPINNING BACK

KICK.

HINDSIGHT FOR CAMPOS.

PATIENCE AND HESITATION ARE

ALMOST THE SAME RIGHT NOW.

GOOD LEFT HAND.

THAT WAS THE SECOND PUNCH OF

THAT SEQUENCE.

>> AND HAS TO LET HIS HANDS GO.

>> CAMPOS IS BUILDING IN

CONFIDENCE.

>> FINAL MINUTE, ROUND NUMBER

ONE OF THE LIGHTWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT SEMIFINAL ROUND

FIGHT.

>> RIGHT NOW PITBULL HAS NOT

GIVEN CAMPOS A REASON TO BACK

UP, A REASON TO HESITATE.

HE'S JUST WAITING TO LAND THAT

ONE BIG PUNCH.

SAME THING TIM WELCH DID.

TIM WELCH NEVER FOUND THAT

OPPORTUNITY.

>> AGAIN, MOVING PITBULL BACK

WITH THE STRIKE.

PITBULL FLAT FOOTED.

LEFT JAB OF CAMPOS LANDED.

TRYING TO OPEN IT UP WITH THE

HEAD KICK, NOT SEEING THE KICKS

THROUGH.

THIS LIGHTWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

SEMIFINAL.

THE WINNER THROUGH TO THE FINAL.

OH, GOOD LEFT HAND BY PITBULL.

>> CAME OUT IN THE SECOND ROUND,

CAN HE GET THE STOPPAGE?

>> MOVING IN FOR A BETTER LOOK.

PITBULL THINKING IT IS CAMPOS,

BACK TO HIS FEET.

HE'S HURT.

IT'S OVER.

>> HE'S STILL IN IT.

>> THOUGHT THAT WAS GOING TO BE

IT.

>> I THINK HE -- IF PITBULL CAN

PUT SOME PUNCHES TOGETHER, I

JUST SAID HE'S GOT TO FIGHT

BACK.

PITBULL TRYING TO LEAVE NO DOUBT

AND FINISH IT.

AND STEPPING OVER THE MAT.

>> CAMPOS DOESN'T HAVE HIS WITS

ABOUT HIM.

>> HUGE RIGHT HAND.

AND A TKO FOR PATRICKY PITBULL.

HE IS BACK IN THE LIGHTWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT FINALS.

>> A REPEAT OF HIS FIRST ROUND

PERFORMANCE.

KNOCKED HIM OUT IN THE SECOND.

HE DOES THE SAME THING AGAINST

DEREK CAMPOS THIS TIME AROUND.

>> A LIGHTWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

FINALIST IN SEASON FOUR.

AND HE REPEATS THAT FEAT HERE IN

BELLATOR NUMBER TEN.

>> POWER PUNCHES, AGGRESSIVE

FROM THE OUTSIDE OF THIS -- THE

OUTSET IN THIS SECOND ROUND.

>> HERE IS OUR AUTO ZONE REPLAY.

>> LOOK AT THIS LEFT HAND.

JUST A JAB RIGHT ON THE JAW.

AFTER IT A SHOT AND ALL OVER HIM

ON THE GROUND.

THAT DOESN'T LAND.

BUT LOOK AT THIS RIGHT HAND.

RIGHT BY THE EAR.

JUST TOOK ALL THE BALANCE, ALL

THE EQUILIBRIUM OUT OF DEREK

CAMPOS.

LOOK AT IT, RIGHT BEHIND THE

EAR.

HE DID EVERYTHING HE COULD TO

STAY IN THE FIGHT.

ROB HINES GAVE HIM PLENTY OF

TIME.

JUST COULD NOT RECOVER.

JUST LOOKING FOR A REASON TO

STOP IT, SHORT PUNCHES ON THE

EAR, CAMPOS NOT ABLE TO DEFEND

HIMSELF, NOT ANSWERING BACK.

>> HE'S A BLACK BELT, BRAZILIAN

JUJITSU, BUT THAT FINISHES THE

FIGHT WITH HIS STRIKE.

>> PATRICKY PITBULL PUTS HIS

PLACE IN THE LIGHTWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT

>>> ROUND NUMBER TWO, THE WINNER

BY TKO NOW A LIGHTWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT FINALIST, PATRICKY

PITBULL!

>> LET'S GO TO JIMMY.

>> I'M HERE WITH YOUR WINNER AND

LIGHTWEIGHT TOURNAMENT FINALIST,

PATRICKY PITBULL.

I HAVE ONE QUESTION, WITH ALL

YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH, THE UPS AND

DOWNS IN YOUR CAREER WHAT DOES

IT MEAN TO BE A LIGHTWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT FINALIST AGAIN?

>> I AM HERE TO MAKE HISTORY IN

BELLATOR.

I'M HERE TO MAKE HISTORY.

AND BE RECOGNIZED THE BEST -- BE

A CHAMPION AND BE THE BEST

LIGHTWEIGHT IN THIS DIVISION.

>> LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR

PERFORMANCE IN THE FINAL.

GIVE IT UP FOR PATRICKY PITBULL,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

>> AND ROUND NUMBER ONE, DEREK

CAMPOS WAS MOVING PATRICKY

PITBULL BACKWARDS WITH STRIKES.

BUT A RAPID FIRE STARTS ROUND

NUMBER TWO.

PITBULL COMING FORWARD.

DEEP LEFT JAB, JIMMY, DROPPING

DEREK CAMPOS AND FALLING TO THE

GROUND.

>> THIS RIGHT HAND BEHIND THE

EAR THAT REALLY TOOK CAMPOS OUT

OF THE FIGHT.

HE WAS NEVER ABLE TO GET BACK IN

IT.

PATRICKY PITBULL VERY HEAVY

HANDED, THIS WAS JUST ICING ON

THE CAKE, THAT RIGHT HAND BEHIND

THE EAR, GOT TO RESPECT THAT

GUY'S PUNCHING POWER.

>> AND ABSOLUTELY ELATED

PATRICKY PITBULL, PUTS HIS PLACE

RIGHT.

>> AND RICK HAWN, CEREBRAL,

CALM, SUCCESSFUL AT 170 AND AT

155 POUNDS.

>> THERE IS GOING TO BE TOO MUCH

VIOLENCE.

SHE'S GOING TO BE SHOCKED WHEN

SHE SEES HER HUSBAND HITTING A

GUY LIKE THIS.

BUT AFTER THE WIN, SHE'S GOING

TO SMILE.

>> KARL AMOUSSOU SAYS THIS WILL

NUMBER TEN LIGHTWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT, DEREK ANDERSON

VERSUS MARCIN HELD AND THE MAIN

EVENT, DOUGLAS LIMA TAKING ON

RICK HAWN.

JIMMY YOU AND I KNOW A DELAY

OFTENTIMES MEANS A SPLIT

DECISION.

OR SOMETHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY

OTHER THAN A STRAIGHT UNANIMOUS

DECISION.

>> A CLOSE FIGHT.

FIRST ROUND I THOUGHT CLEARLY

WAS AMOUSSOU.

ROUNDS TWO AND THREE, CLOSE,

COULD HAVE GONE EITHER WAY.

>> SPLIT DECISION, I DON'T EVEN

WANT TO JINX THIS WITH A DRAW OR

A SPLIT DRAW OR ANYTHING LIKE

THAT.

EVERYTHING ON THE TABLE.

THE TYPE OF DELAY USUALLY MEANS

THAT IT IS SOMETHING A BIT OUT

OF THE ORDINARY.

BOTH FIGHTERS NERVOUSLY PACING

AROUND THE BELLATOR CAGE.

GOMEZ CALLED IT THE BIGGEST

FIGHT OF HIS LIFE.

SAID THIS WOULD BE A TURNING

POINT IN HIS CAREER.

DOUGLAS LIMA GETTING READY FOR

OUR MAIN EVENT TONIGHT.

>> WON 13 OF LAST 14 FIGHTS.

I THINK HE EXPECTS RICK HAWN TO

TRY AND MAKE THIS A GROUND

FIGHT.

HE'S A BROWN BELT IN BRAZILIAN

JUJITSU.

DOES HAVE SUBMISSION SKILLS, 11

SUBMISSION FINISHES IN HIS

CAREER.

HE'S KNOWN IN BELLATOR FOR THE

RIGHT HAND, THE POWER IN HIS

KICKS AND HIS PUNCHES.

HE TOLD ME, HE SAID, I'M READY

FOR ANY KIND OF FIGHT, ANYWHERE

RICK HAWN WANTS TO DO IT, I'M

READY.

>> WELL, LIMA TOOK THE BACK

EASILY THERE.

>> THAT'S YOUR BROTHER.

YOU LET HIM DO IT.

CAREER PRO MMA WIN NUMBER 17.

COULD ALSO BE CAREER WIN NUMBER

17 FOR DAVID GOMEZ.

NERVOUS, NERVOUS MOMENTS FOR

THESE TWO FIGHTERS.

>> THE ONLY POSSIBLE

COMBINATIONS FOR A SCORE CARD

ARE 8, 9 AND 10.

TAKE A WHILE TO ADD UP.

LIGHTWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN MIND THOSE

11 WINS, TEN FINISHES, SIX OF

THEM BY SUBMISSION, DOES HAVE

GROUND SKILLS, HE'S NOT A FISH

OUT OF WATER IF THIS FIGHT HITS

THE MAT.

>> SUSPENSE HAS ENDED.

MICHAEL WILLIAMS IS IN THE

BELLATOR CAGE.
