I HAVE LIKE A DEVIL POSITION

THAT'S ME PRAYING FOR

GIVENESS.

IN COLORADO EARLY 2000

THAT'S WHERE THE DEVIL CAME

FROM, SEEING ME ALL THE TIME,

DOING EVERYTHING YOU'RE NOT

SUPPOSED TO BE DOING.

I WENT ON THE RUN FROM THE

COPS A YEAR AND A HALF.

ONE DAY I LOOKED OUT THE

WINDOW AND SEEN GUYS DRESSED

IN BLACK WITH INFRAREDS, AND

THERE'S LIKE 50 POLICE

OFFICERS, S.W.A.T. TEAM,

GANG UNIT, I PUT MY HANDS UP

LIKE HERE I AM, GOING TO

PRISON IS WHAT ACTUALLY

SAVED ME.

YOU'RE IN THERE WITH DUDES

DOING LIFE SENTENCES, GUYS

THAT HELD PEOPLE HOSTAGE

ACKNOWLEDGED PULLED OUT

THEIR TOENAILS AND TEETH.

MY DAUGHTER DIDN'T WANT TO

SEE ME AT ALL.

I WANTED TO BE A BETTER

PERSON.

MY CHILDREN BEING PROUD OF

MY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT

THING IN MY LIFE.

I FEEL LIKE I'VE BEEN BORN

AGAIN.

THIS FIGHT WITH MINAKOV IS

THE BIGGEST OF MY LIFE.

EVERYTHING GETS THROWN OUT

THE WINDOW AS SOON AS THE

DOOR SHUTS.

BEING WHERE I BEEN AT, DOING

WHAT I'VE DONE AND BEING

HERE FIGHTING IN THE

TOUGHEST TOURNAMENT IN THE

WORLD IN THE FINALS, IT'S

BEEN ONE BIG BLESSING, AND I

CAN'T THANK GOD ENOUGH FOR

IT.

>> RUSSIAN VISIT LID MINAKOV

CAME TO THE U.S. CHASING HIS

DREAM.

NOW HE'S ONE STEP CLOSER TO

BEING A CHAMPION.

[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

>> WHEN I ENTER THE CAGE, I

FEEL NOTHING.

THERE'S NO FEELING.

NO EMOTION.

THE BELL RINGS, AND THEN I

GO TO WORK.

MY BUSINESS IS A BRUTAL ONE.

>> MINAKOV IS INTERESTING.

A MULTIPLE WORLD CHAMPION,

VERY ATHLETIC, VERY GOOD

WORK.

THE GUY CAN STRIKE AND HITS

EXTRAORDINARILY HARD.

THAT IS A VERY SCARY

COMBINATION.

>> IN RUSSIAN, THE ROAD TO

GREATNESS IS A LONELY ONE.

I THINK ABOUT THAT OFTEN

WHEN MY WIFE AND TWO

BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN ARE HALF

A WORLD AWAY, BUT THAT IS

THE PRICE OF BEING GREAT.

THAT IS WHY I CAME TO

AMERICA, TO FOLLOW A DREAM.

I LOOK FORWARD TO TEST I MY

SKILLS AGAINST RYAN

MARTINEZ.

UNFORTUNATELY FOR HIM, HE'S

STANDING BETWEEN ME AND A

DREAM.

TONIGHT, WHEN I STEP INTO

THAT CAGE, I WILL HONOR MY

FAMILY, AND AFTER THE FIGHT,

I WILL BE ONE STEP CLOSER TO

MAKING MY DREAM COME TRUE.

THE DREAM OF BECOMING A

WORLD CHAMPION.

JIMMY: I KNEW THAT WAS

COMING, UP AGAINST THE FENCE,

BOTH GUYS THROWING KNEES.

TAKE A LOOK AT IT HERE.

LEFT KNEE, BANG, RIGHT

THROUGH THE CENTER.

PRETTY OBVIOUS.

SEAN: JIMMY, AS WE LIKE TO

POINT OUT IN OUR BROADCAST,

NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE IN

THE WORLD, WHEN THERE'S A

LOW BLOW, PEOPLE BOO.

JIMMY: HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.

SEAN: NEVER KNOW WHO OR WHY

THEY'RE BOOING, BUT SOMEONE

ALWAYS DOES.

JIMMY: TAKING A POINT.

THAT IS EXTRAORDINARY.

SEAN: SHS SHOCKING.

WITHOUT A WARNING THE FIRST

LOW BLOW AND REFEREE RAUL

DOES DEDUCT A POINT FROM

MINAKOV.

JIMMY: WITHOUT A SINGLE

WARNING.

I VERY MUCH DISAGREE WITH

THAT CALL.

SEAN: FIVE MINUTES TO

RECOVER.

TOOK 70 SECONDS.

HE'S EARNED ONE POINT IN

THIS ROUND.

JIMMY: IN A VERY CLOSE

FIGHT.

SEAN: THAT'S REALLY SHOCKING

FROM THE REFEREE, WITHOUT A

WARNING ON THE FIRST

OFFENSE.

JIMMY: HE DID LAND SOME GOOD

SHOTS IN THAT VERY CLOSE

FIRST ROUND.

SEAN: THE ONE FOYT DEDUCTION

FOR THAT LOW BLOW FOR

MINAKOV AS WE CLOSE IN ON

THE END OF THIS FIGHT.

JIMMY: I DON'T THINK HE'S

BEHIND NECESSARILY.

I DON'T THINK IT PUTS HIM SO

FAR BEHIND YOU CAN GO FOR

THE KNOCKOUT AND GO CRAZY.

RIGHT HERE, HE MIGHT USE

THAT JAB, USE THE STRAIGHT

PUNCH, SKI THE POWER HITTER

AWAY FROM HIM.

RYAN SO FAR NOT ABLE TO GET

AROUND THAT LEFT JAB.

SEAN: COUNTERCOUNTER RIGHT

HOOK FROM MARTINEZ.

MINAKOV IS NOT FINDING A

HOME FOR HIS RIGHT HAND

HERE.

JIMMY: WHAT IT DOES, IT

DIFFICULTIES ERUPTS THE

OTHER FIGHTER'S OFFENSIVE

TIMING.

IT KEEPS THE POWER PUNCHES

FROM LOADING UP THOSE SHOTS.

SEAN: MISS OVER THE TOP BY

MARTINEZ.

COMING UP NEXT, IT'S THE

LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

FINAL, KING MO VS. JACOB

NOE.

THE WINNER EARNS A WORLD

TITLE SHOT.

LEFT HAND WALKING IN,

MARTINEZ.

HE'S VERY EFFECTIVE,

MARTINEZ, INLANDING WHILE

STEPPING IN.

JIMMY: VERY GOOD.

HOOKS HOOKS WHILE MOVING

FORWARD.

SEAN: IT'S NOT A PIVOT STEP.

JIMMY: HE'S LITERALLY

WALKING DOWN TO HIS OPPONENT

WHILE THROWING.

SEAN: COUNTER RIGHT BY

MINAKOV.

JIMMY: ON THE OUTSIDE, IN

BETWEEN THOSE BULL RUSHES

HE'S LANDING PUNCHES.

SEAN: 50 SECONDS REMAINING

IN ROUND TWO OF THIS

HEAVYWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

FINAL.

JIMMY: IT'S A QUESTION.

YOU SEE HE CHANGES UP HIS

OFFENSE HERE.

RYAN IS COMING IN A LOT WITH

THAT WALKING IN LEFT HOOK,

BUT MOST OF THE TIME HE'S

NOT ABLE TO SEE IT.

HE NEEDS TO CHANGE UP HIS

OFFENSE, GET SOMETHING ELSE

GOING.

SEAN: MARTINEZ NOW CIRCLING

AWAY.

MINAKOV COMING FORWARD.

THERE'S THE SHOT.

GOOD TAKEDOWN DEFENSIVE LINE

MARTINEZ.

JIMMY: I THINK THAT MAY HAVE

BEEN JUST TO GET MARTINEZ UP

AGAINST THE FENCE.

KIND OF A DIVING TAKEDOWN.

HE HAD MARTINEZ UP AGAINST

THE FENCE.

SEAN: INSIDE KNEE BY

MARTINEZ.

TWO POWERFUL STRIKERS.

[BELL]

JIMMY: REMEMBER, HE'S ONLY

GONE THE DISTANCE ONCE IN

HIS MMA CAREER.

SO FAR HIS GAP HAS LOOKED

GOOD, THOUGH.

SEAN: BOTH FIGHTERS

ADVANCING TO THIS TOURNAMENT

FINAL WITH FIRST ROUND

KNOCKOUTS IN THE SEMIFINALS,

MARTINEZ DEFEATING RICH HALE

AND RON SPARKS.

COUNTERRIGHT BACK FROM

MARTINEZ.

JIMMY: THAT WAS JUST OVER

THE EAR, THROWN BY MARTINEZ.

SEAN: MARTINEZ STEPPING INTO

THE POCKET EFFECTIVELY.

JIMMY: GOING FOR BROKE HERE.

MARCH TERNS FIGHTS WELL OFF

THE BREAK.

WHENEVER THEY BREAK, HE HAS

SHORT PUNCHES.

LOT OF TIMES MINAKOV CAN'T

SEE THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE TOO

CLOSE.

SEAN: THERE'S THE TAKEDOWN

FROM MINAKOV.

JIMMY: MARTINEZ HAS TO GET

UP AND HE HAS TO GET UP NOW.

SEAN: JIMMY, SOMETHING THAT

COULD BE RELEVANT BECAUSE OF

THE ONE FOYT DEDUCTION IN

ROUND TWO.

IF THIS IS A QUARTER DRAW,

WE WILL GO TO A FOURTH ROUND

AND OVERTIME ROUND.

JIMMY: RIGHT NOW, MINAKOV

WORKING HARD TO MAKE SURE

THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN.

SEAN: ONE HOOK IN.

MARTINEZ POSTURED ON HIS

RIGHT HIP.

JIMMY: HE'S EATING BIG SHOTS,

THERE.

EXACT SLI WHERE MARTINEZ DID

NOT WANT TO BE.

BIG MAN IN TOUGH POSITION.

SEAN: MINAKOV THINKING NEAR

NAKED CHOKE.

MARTINEZ WISELY BACK TO HIS

BACK, BUT HE EATS THE SHOT.

FULL MOUNT FROM MINAKOV.

HE'S THINKING FINISH IN

ROUND THREE AND THERE'S THE

ELBOW SHORT AND SHARP.

JIMMY: CAN YOU FEEL THE

ENERGY COMING OUT OF

MARTINEZ.

LATE IN THE FIGHT, HALFWAY

THROUGH THE THIRD ROUND, AND

HE'S IN BAD SHAPE HERE.

SEAN: YOU SEE MINAKOV

TRAPPING THE WRIST AND

LETTING GO WITH THOSE ELBOW

STRIKES.

JIMMY: MARTINEZ HAS TO BUCK

AND MOVE.

HE CAN'T JUST TURN LIKE

THIS.

THAT'S WHAT MINAKOV KEEPS

DOING.

HE HAS TO BUMP HIS HIPS,

PUSH ON THE KNEE AND GET

OUT.

SEAN: IT'S A DAING WHERE HE

TRIES TO SIT UP AS MINAKOV

IS THINKING NEAR NAKED CHOKE.

JIMMY: THAT'S WHAT WE ARE

SEEING.

SEAN: AND ELBOWS.

LEFT HAND.

JIMMY: DESPERATION TIME FOR

RYAN MARTINEZ.

SEAN: AGAIN YOU SEE MARTINEZ

SITTING UP, AND THERE'S

MINAKOV.

THERE'S THE ELBOW.

AND ANOTHER.

JIMMY: THE PROBLEM IS YOU

HAVE TO PUSH DOWN A LOT OF

TIMES ON YOUR OPPONENT'S

KNEE, BUT TO DO THAT, YOU'VE

GOT TO TAKE YOUR HANDS AWAY

FROM YOUR FACE.

LOT OF TIMES YOU'VE GOT TO

USE YOUR ELBOWS.

VERY DIFFICULT TO DO.

SEAN: CAN MINAKOV FIND THE

FINISH.

CAN MARTINEZ SIT UP AND GET

THIS FIGHT BACK ON ITS FEET?

HUGE RIGHT HAND FOR MINAKOV,

AND THAT IS IT!

THE TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP.

NEXT UP, A WORLD TITLE

FIGHT.

THIRD ROUND TKO.

JIMMY: GREAT JOB TURNING IT

ON WHEN HE HAD TO, GREAT

POSITIONING.

HE IS A HEAVYWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT CHAMPION FOR

BELLATOR.

THAT'S ANOTHER BAD RUSSIAN,

SEAN.

SEAN: VITALY MINAKOV A

PERFECT 12-0 IN HIS PRO MMA

CAREER, AND HE FINISHES THAT

FIGHT WITH EMPHASIS.

JIMMY: THAT'S RIGHT, LANDING

STRIKES JUST LIKE THIS, TOO

MUCH FOR RYAN MARTINEZ.

SEAN: REMEMBER, KING MO

STILL TO COME TONI

SEAN: SPIRITLY MINAKOV WAS

DEDUCTED A POINT IN THE

FIRST ROUND, BUT MINAKOV AN

OUTSTANDING TAKEDOWN AGAINST

RYAN MARTINEZ, WHO PROVED

VERY TOUGH TO TAKE DOWN IN

THE FIGHT.

MINAKOV WORKING TO FULL

MOUNT, RYAN MARTINEZ KEPT

TRYING TO SIT UP, MINAKOV

LOOKED FOR THE NEAR NAKED

CHOKE.

MINAKOV GETS THE FINISH AND

WINS IN HEAVYWEIGHT

SPORT OF MIXED MARTIAL ARTS

DO FIGHTERS DISLIKE EACH

THAT'S THE CASE IN THE LIGHT

HEAVYWEIGHT TOURNAMENT FINAL,

KING MO AND NOE ARE TALKING

ABOUT INJURING THEIR

OPPONENT.

JIMMY: BOTH THESE GUYS

RETIRED THEIR OPPONENT IN

THE LAST FIGHT, AND THEY ARE

LOOKING FORWARD TO DOING

THAT TONIGHT.

THAT IS NO JOKE.

SEAN: HERE'S OUR TALE OF THE

TAPE.

JIMMY: LOOK AT THE WEIGHT.

BOTH GUYS WEIGHED IN THE

SAME.

THROW THAT OUT THE WINDOW.

JACOB NOE HAD A TOUGH CUT.

HE'S A MASSIVE LIGHT

THERE.

SEAN: BIGGEST FIGHT OF HIS

LIFE FOR JACOB NOE.

REFEREE: FIGHT!

SEAN: THE LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT FINAL IS

UNDERWAY.

ROUND NUMBER ONE.

JIMMY: OUR FIGHT CLOCK

BROUGHT TO YOU BY MILLER

LIGHT.

KING MO VERY DISMISSIVE OF

THE TECHNIQUE OF JACOB NOE,

BUT JACOB NOE MIGHT PUSH HIS

PUNCHES, BUT STILL A VERY

POWERFUL STRIKER.

SEAN: JACOB NOE IN THE WHITE

TRUNKS, KING MO IN THE BLACK

TRUNKS.

JIMMY: SIDE KICK.

SEAN: WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF

THE FACT IT WAS A STARE

DOWN?

JIMMY: THEY KNOW WHAT IT

TAKES TO WIN A FIGHT.

IT'S MOTION.

THAT WAS AN EASY TAKEDOWN

FOR KING MO.

THAT'S NOT A GOOD SIGN FOR

JACOB NOE.

SEAN: BIG LEFT HAND FROM

KING MO.

DIVISION TWO WRESTLING

CHAMPION AT THE UNIVERSITY

OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA.

HE'S WORKED EXTENSIVELY ON

HIS BOXING WITH JAY

MAYWEATHER, BUT STILL THAT

WRESTLING BASE IS

PHENOMENAL.

THAT'S WHAT HE BROUGHT TO

MMA INITIALLY.

JIMMY: ALSO AN ALL-AMERICAN

DIVISION ONE AT OKLAHOMA

STATE, VERY POWERFUL

TAKEDOWN.

SEAN: WARNING BECAUSE NOE

PUNCHES TO THE BACK OF THE

HEAD.

JIMMY: LOOK HOW STICKY KING

MO IS EARLY IN THIS FIGHT ON

NOE.

SEAN: GREAT WRESTLER'S

TRICK.

LOOK HOW KING MO IS PUSHING

WITH HIS HEAD.

IT'S LEGAL.

IT'S NOT A HEAD BUTT, BUT

IT'S SMART.

DOUBLE LEG, NOW FOR THE

SINGLE.

JIMMY: NOE TRYING HARD TO

STAY OPEN HIS FEET.

SEAN: EVEN GRABBING

ILLEGALLY THE CAGE, SOMETIME

TAKEN DOWN BY KING MO IS

JACOB NOE.

THREE MINUTES REMAINING IN

ROUND NUMBER ONE, SO WINNER

ADVANCES TO A WORLD TITLE

SHOT.

JIMMY: NICE SHOT TO THE BODY

WITH THAT KNEE.

SEAN: SEPARATION FROM KING

MO.

STILL TO COME, TWO BELLATOR

WORLD TITLE FICHLTS

FOLLOWING THIS BOUT, IT'S

THE FIGHT FOR THE BELLATOR

WELTERWEIGHT TITLE.

JIMMY: GREAT FLAT DOUBLE

LEG.

BEAUTIFUL SHOT.

SEAN: ALSO TONIGHT, WE WILL

HAVE A MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT

FROM QUENTIN RAMPAGE

JACKSON.

BIG SHOT FOR THE LEFT AND

THEN THE RIGHT OF THE BODY

FROM KING MO.

JIMMY: KING MO NO FEAR ON

THE GROUND OF JACOB NOE.

REALLY TAKE GREAT SUBMISSION

STILL, GREAT AWARENESS

GRAPPLING TO HANDLE THE

PRESSURE OF A WRESTLER WITH

GOOD GROUND-AND-POUND.

I DON'T THINK JACOB NOE HAS

THAT.

SEAN: JIMMY, YOU'LL GET TO

INTERVIEW THE WINNER OF THIS

BOUTD AND TALK TO QUENTIN

RAMPAGE JACKSON AS HE MAKES

HIS ANNOUNCEMENT.

JIMMY: LOT OF WORK AHEAD OF

ME.

SEAN: JACOB NOE THE MOMENT,

POSTURING ON HIS HIP, TRYING

TO FIGURE OUT KING MO, WHO

HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING WITH

MISS TOP CONTROL AND HIS

TAKEDOWNS EARLY IN THIS

FIGHT.

JIMMY: NOE HAS TO GET BACK

TO HITS FEET.

HE'S NOT GOING TO GET

ANYTHING DONE DOWN HERE.

SEAN: SOME BOOS COMING FROM

THIS ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO

CROWD.

KING MO DOESN'T CARE,

BECAUSE THIS IS HIS FIGHT

RIGHT NOW.

JIMMY: DEFINITELY GOING HIS

WAY.

LOT OF BREUER WITH THE RIGHT

HIP.

NOW LOOKING TO UNLOAD AND

FINISH THE FIGHT I THINK.

GET NOE TO COVER UP.

HE COULD NOT ESCAPE THE

PRESSURE OF KING MO.

SEAN: KING MO HAPPY TO HANG

OUT AND PUNCH IN THAT NOE

HALF GUARD.

BIG LEFT HAND.

THAT WAS FLUSH ON THE BRIDGE

OF THE NOSE.

JIMMY: THEY CALL AT THIS

TIME SEAT BELT GRIP AROUND

THE WRIST, AROUND THE BACK

AND GRABBING THE WRIST.

WITH THAT, IT'S SO HARD FOR

NOE TO DEFEND HIMSELF.

NOW HE WILL GET BACK TO FULL

GUARD.

SEAN: AS THE COMPETITION

INTENSIFIES, THE ARTISTS

WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET

AHEAD.

DON'T MISS INK MASTER HOSTED

BY DAVE NAVARRO ONLY ON

SPIKE.

FINAL SECONDS OF ROUND

NUMBER ONE OF THIS BELLATOR

LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

FINAL.

A VERY GOOD ROUND FOR KING

MO, IMPLEMENTING HIS GAME.

THE BELL CANNOT COME SOON

ENOUGH FOR JACOB NOE.

ON THE BELLATOR MMA APP YOU

CAN SEE REALTIME STATS.

50 STRIKES LANDED IN ROUND

ONE FOR THAT MAN, KING MO,

JUST EIGHT LAND ENDED THE

OPENING ROUND FOR JACOB NOE.

JIMMY: TOTAL WIPEOUT.

SEAN: JIMMY, YOUR SCORECARD.

JIMMY: I HAD IT 10-9.

IT COULD HAVE BEEN 10-8.

SEAN: BELLATOR FANS SCORING

ON THE BELLATOR APP, YOU

ALSO HAD IT 10-9 FOR KING

MO.

JIMMY: JACOB NOE GOING AFTER

THAT KNEE OF KING MO.

KING MO OBVIOUSLY HAD KNEE

SURGERY, HAD A SERIOUS STAPH

INFECTION.

HE'S TARGET THAT KNEE.

SEAN: IF YOU'RE IN THE

CORNER OF JACOB NOE, WHAT

THE ARE YOU TELLING HIM

BETWEEN ROUNDS ONE AND TWO?

JIMMY: EVERYTHING DID YOU IN

THAT FIRST ROUND, DON'T DO

IT.

EVERYTHING WAS BAD.

YOU'VE GOT TO KEEP YOUR

RANGE WITH YOUR JAB RS.

KEEP YOUR STANCE LOWER.

THE HE'S GOING FOR THE

TAKEDOWN.

SEAN: LOOK AT THE SEQUENCE,

THE OVERHAND RIOT AND THIS

TAKEDOWN.

NOAH LOOK --

NOE LOOKING FOR THE

GUILLOTINE, NOW DRYING TO

ESTABLISH HIS GUARD.

NEVER LOCKED ON THE

GUILLOTINE.

KING MO POPPED HIS HEAD

FREE.

THE OPEN GUARD OF JACOB NOE,

AND NOW THE CLOSED GUARD.

THERE ARE SOME STRIKES FROM

THE BOTTOM BY NOE.

JIMMY: NOW HE HAS THE ARM

TRAPPED.

NOE ABLE TO GET IT OUT.

PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND TO

SUBMIT A GUY FROM YOUR BACK

IN THE MMA, A GUY WITH

WRESTLING BACKROUND, IT

TAKES WORLD LEVEL JUI JITSU

TO SUBMIT A GUY DOWN.

THAT'S THE LEVEL IT TAKES.

SEAN: GET THE HAMMERFIST

NOW.

THE LEFT-HANDER, THE RIGHT

HAND, AND THE CONVENTIONAL

RIGHT FROM KING MO, AND HE

IS THINKING FINISH.

JIMMY: HE'S NOT ABLE TO GET

MENTALLY OR PHYSICALLY INTO

THIS FIGHT.

SEAN: NOE AGAIN ESTABLISHES

HIS CLOSED GUARD.

JIMMY: GOING HARD FOR THE

ARMBAR.

HIS LEGS ARE FAR APART.

HE NEEDS TO BRING THEM

CLOSER TO GO HE'S OUT.

SEAN: KING MO JUST WENT WITH

IT, SACKED NOE AND POWERED

HIS WAY THROUGH.

TECHNIQUE AND POWER

COMBINED.

JIMMY: ALSO, NOE MAKING

COUPLE OF MISTAKES WITH THAT

ARMBAR ATTEMPT.

SEAN: TWO BELLATOR WORLD

TITLE FIGHTS TO COME.

NEXT UP, THE BIG

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM QUENTIN

RAMPAGE JACKSON, THEN THE

WELTERWEIGHT WORLD TITLE

FIGHT, THEN THE LIGHTWEIGHT

WORLD TITLE FIGHT.

AN AMAZING NIGHT FOR

BELLATOR MMA LIVE ON SPIKE.

REALLY GLAD THAT YOU'RE WITH

US.

TRULY JIMMY I THINK THIS IS

A KING MO FIGHT.

WORKING WITH JEFF MAYWEATHER

HE LOVES THE SHOW THE HANDS,

BUT THIS IS WHAT HAS MADE

HIM SO SUCCESSFUL THROUGHOUT

HIS MMA CAREER, THE

TAKEDOWNS.

JIMMY: JACOB NOE HASN'T BEEN

ABLE TO DO ANYTHING TO GET

HIM OFF HIS GAME.

SEAN: RIGHT TO THE BODY FROM

KING MO.

NOE FRYING TO SIT UP AND

THROUGH.

JIMMY, AT THIS POINT ARE YOU

THINKING FOR NOE HE'S JUST

GOT TO SELL OUT?

JIMMY: SELL OUT.

SUBMISSION OR NOT, KING MO

SPECIALTY.

YOU GOT TO EXPLODE UNTIL YOU

GET BACK TO YOUR FEET,

BECAUSE THIS IS NOT WORKING.

SEAN: BLOOD ON THE FACE OF

JACOB NOE.

JIMMY: AGAIN, LOOK AT THE

HEAD POSITION, PERFECTLY

LEGAL.

THAT IS NOT A HEAD BUTT, BUT

THE PIVOT WITH THE HEAD,

DRIVING IN WITH THE HEAD.

SEAN: BIG ACCUMULATION OF

PUNCHES, KING MO OPENING UP.

FINAL MINUTE OF ROUND NUMBER

TWO.

BLOOD ON NOE'S FACE.

A MOUSE UNDER HIS LEFT EYE.

JIMMY, THIS IS ATTRITION,

THIS IS ACCUMULATION ON THE

STRIKES FROM KING MO.

HE'S LANDING GOOD ONES.

JIMMY: NOE JUST IN TROUBLE

THROUGHOUT THIS FIGHT, NEVER

IN IT.

NEVER ON HIS FEET.

IT'S BEEN ALL KING MO SO

FAR.

SEAN: I AGREE.

ONE WAY TRAFFIC FOR KING MO

AND NOW TURNING UP THE

INTENSITY, CLOSINGING

SECONDS FRD ROUND TWO.

JIMMY: LOOK AT THE

ACCUMULATION OF THE FACE OF

JACOB NOE.

HE'S BEATEN UP BADLY.

SEAN: LOOK AT THE WRIST

CONTROL FROM KING MO, BACK

TO THE LEFT HAND.

AS HE DID AT THE END OF

ROUND ONE, JACOB

>> KING MO HAS CLAIMED THIS

BELLATOR LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT.

NOT MUCH LEFT ON THOSE

PUNCHES.

THAT WAS JUST AN

ACCUMULATION.

SEAN I WAS GOING TO SAY WHEN

YOU MADE THAT COMMENT THERE

WAS A POINT WHEN THE HEART

MAKES THE BEATING MORE

INTERESTING.

SEAN: LET'S LOOK AT OUR

FIGHT REPLAY.

JIMMY: YOU SEE HERE, SHORT

LEFT HAND AGAINST THE FENCE.

THAT'S WHAT OPENED UP THE

CUT UNDERNEATH THE LEFT EYE.

LOOK AT THIS JAB.

A STEP-IN JANUARY.

--

JAB LEFT RIDE OFF OVER THE

TOP.

NOT HUGE PUNCHES BUT HERZOG

HAS SEEN ENOUGH.

SEAN: EVERYONE LOVES THE

ONE-PUNCH KNOCKOUT, BUT THAT

IS TRULY A KING MO

PERFORMANCE.

NEXT UP FOR KING MO, A

SEAN: TAKEDOWNS, TOMORROW

GAME AND GROUND-AND-POUND

LEAPED KING MO TO VICTORY.

SO MUCH ANIMOSITY, REALLY

OUTRIGHT HATE BETWEEN THESE

OPPONENTS.

HE'S A GREAT EXAMPLE, HIM

AND RAMPAGE ARE GUYS THAT

KEEP ON TRAINING AND

TRAINING HARD.

JIMMY: NOW, YOU WON THE

LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT.

UP NEXT FOR YOU, A SHOT AT

THE 205-POUND CHAMPIONSHIP.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO YOU

ALL YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH TO

GET THAT SHOT?

>> FIRST, LET ME GIVE A

SHOUT OUT TO USA WRESTLING.

CHEERS.

TODAY WAS A TRIBUTE TO

WRESTLING.

I KNEW I COULD NOT COME OUT

HERE BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT

ASKREN, SHAWN BUNCH, BUBBA

JENKINS, THEY'RE OUT HERE

WRESTLING, SO I CAN'T BE

OUTSHINED SO I CAME TO SHOW

MY TECHNIQUE THAT COACH

JACKSON TAUGHT ME.

JIMMY: HOW ABOUT THAT BELT

SHOT?

HOW MUCH ARE YOU LOOKING

FORWARD TO IT?

TELL ME ABOUT IT.

>> IT'S LIKE THIS.

IF ATTILA WANTS TO WAIT,

I'LL FEED EMANUEL, WHOEVER

HIS NAME, THE DUDE WHO GOT

LUCKY ON ME, BUT I'LL FIGHT

HIM, AND THEN I'LL FIGHT

ATTILA.

JIMMY: YOU HEARD IT.

HE'S READY FOR WHOEVER IS IN

FRONT OF HIM.

GIVE IT UP FOR KING MO

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

SEAN: WHEN BELLATOR RETURNS

LIVE ON SPIKE, JIMMY SMITH

WILL SPEAK TO THAT MAN,

RAMPAGE JACKSON, WHO WILL

MAKE A MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT.

SEAN: MOMENTS AGO THE NEWEST

MEMBER OF THE BELLATOR

FAMILY TIE TOE ORTIZ WISHING

BELLATOR LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD

TITLE FIGHT.

JIMMY: SEE THERE DAVID THE

CAVEMAN RICKELS WORKING ON

THAT'S GOOD STRATEGY.

HE'S GOING TO BE IN THE

CLINCH A LOT.

HIS OPPONENT VERY POWERFUL

PITCHER.

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE HIM.

SEAN: OUR LOCKER ROOM CAM

BROUGHT TO YOU BY JOSEPH A

BANK CLOTHIERS.

ANDREY SKOICH EARNED THIS

OPPORTUNITY BY WINNING LAST

YEAR'S BELLATOR TOURNAMENT.

JIMMY: OPENING ROUND AGAINST

JORDAN SMITH, THE FIRST TIME

HE HAD EVER GONE THE

DISTANCE, BUT HIS HANDS WERE

ON DISPLAY THAT NIGHT N. THE

NEXT ROUND AGAINST A VERY

DANGEROUS STRIKER, LOOK AT

THAT SHORT LEFT HAND PUT HIM

ON THE FLOOR, AND THIS

FLURRY OF LEFT HANDS ENDED

THE NIGHT IN THE SEMIFINAL

ROUND.

IN THE FINAL AGAINST THE

FORMER CHAMPION LYMAN GOOD

DOMINATION WITH THE HANDS,

AFTER IT WITH LEFTS AND

RIGHTS THROUGHOUT THAT FIGHT

FOR A UNANIMOUS DECISION

VICTORY.

SEAN: SO HERE WE GO.

ASKREN.

>> IN A FEW MOMENTS, TWO MEN

FROM OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE

WORLD WILL COLLIDE AT A

FIXED POINT.

A STEEL STAGE, WHERE A

BELLATOR WORLD TITLE WILL BE

DECIDED.

NEITHER MAN HAS EVER TASTED

THE BITTER STING OF DEFEAT

INSIDE A CAGE OR RING.

ONE IS AN AMERICAN ONLY

NATURAL, A FREE SPIRIT,

WHOSE GAME INSIDE THE CAGE

IS UTTERLY DOMINANT.

BEN ASKREN IS MASTER OF HIS

CRAFT HE FIGHTS WITH THE

BURNING DESIRE TO BE THE

VERY BEST IN THE WORLD.

>> WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO THE

BIG MOMENT, I GOT THE MENTAL

FORT TUD TO GET IT DONE

WHERE OTHERS FAIL.

>> THIS MAN FROM THE

AMERICAN HEART LAND WILL

DEFEND HIS TITLE AGAINST A

MAN BORN IN RUSSIA, ANDREY

KORESCHKOV IS THE SON OF

SIBERIA AND PRODUCT OF A

RUSSIAN FIGHT FACTORY, A

STUDENT OF BELLATOR MIDDLE

MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPION, HIS

BELLATOR WELTERWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT RUN FORMINGED A

CONTENDER FOR THE WORLD

TITLE.

>> ASKREN THINKS HE'S

UNBEATABLE.

HE WON'T THINK THAT WHEN I

HIT HIM IN THE FACE.

I WILL BREAK THIS MAN.

>> I'M GOING TO WALK ACROSS

THE CAGE, I'M GOING TO GRAB

YOU AND THROW YOU ON YOUR

BACK AN HIT YOUR FACE.

IT'S NO SECRET.

I'M THAT DAMNED GOOD AT WHAT

I DO

[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

>> I'M FIGHTING FOR

SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ME.

I'M FIGHTING FOR MY FAMILY.

I'M FIGHTING FOR MY BROTHERS

BACK IN RUSSIA, AND THAT'S

WHY I WILL BEAT BEN ASKREN

DOWN AND KNOCK HIM OUT.

>> TONIGHT, A MAN FROM THE

EAST WILL BATTLE A MAN FROM

THE WEST.

THERE WILL BE A COLLISION OF

MUSCLE AND BONE.

ONLY ONE MAN WILL SEIZE THE

MOMENT.

AND WHEN THE FIGHT ENDS, HE

WILL WEAR THE WORLD TITLE

BELT AROUND HIS WAIST.

HE WILL BE THE BELLATOR

WELTERWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION.

SEAN: CHAMPION BEN ASKREN

HAS BEEN DISMISSIVE OF HIS

OPPONENT IN THIS FIGHT, BUT

ANDREY KORESCHKOV IS A

SEAN: BELLATOR'S UNDEFEATED

WORLD CHAMPION BEN ASKREN

LOOK INFORMING MAKE HIS

FOURTH DEFENSE OF THE TITLE,

STANDING IN HIS WAY THE

UNDEFEATED RUSSIAN PHENOM,

>> TO MAKE HIS WAY TO THE

CAGE, EARNING THE TITLE SHOT

AS A TOURNAMENT CHAMPION

ANDREY.

KORESCHKOV.

SEAN: ANDREY KORESCHKOV AN

OUTSTANDING STRIKER, AN

OUTSTANDING FINISHER.

SIX WINS FOR KORESCHKOV BY

WAY OF FIRST ROUND KNOCKOUT

OR TKO, USES REAL DISTANCE

IN HIS STRIKING, USES THAT

LENGTH, USES THAT REACH.

WHAT'S FASCINATING TO ME IS

THAT KORESCHKOV DID NOT

BRING IN A SINGLE WRESTLER

FOR HIS TRAINING CAMP FOR

THIS FIGHT.

JIMMY: THERE'S A WRESTLER,

THE BEST IN THE WORLD, I

THINK THE GREATEST OF ALL

TIME TOOK GOLD IN THE YEAR

BEN ASKREN WENT TO THE

OLYMPICS.

IF YOU KNOW WHO HE IS, GUYS

LIKE THAT, HE DIDN'T SPEAK

OUT ANYONE SPECIAL.

HE SAID THIS IS AN MMA

FIGHT.

YOU SEE HERE HE'S A

WELTERWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION

IN THE BELLATOR CAGE, BUT

HE'S NEVER TAKEN ON A

WRESTLER LIKE BEN ASKREN.

SEAN: KORESCHKOV'S THINKING

I BELIEVE IS, MY WRESTLING

IS NEVER GOING TO GET

ANYWHERE CLOSE TO BEN ASKREN

SO WHY DEAL WITH IT?

LET'S FOCUS ON MY STRIKING.

JIMMY: YOU DON'T WANT TO

EXPERIENCE SOMETHING FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN THAT CAGE.

YOU'LL EXPERIENCE WHAT IT'S

LIKE TO BE IN THERE WITH

SOMEONE THAT GOOD.

YOU DON'T WANT THE CAGE TO

BE YOUR FIRST TIME.

JIMMY: COMPLETELY AGREE WITH

YOU.

>> AND NOW READY TO MAKE HIS

WAY TO THE CAGE, THE

REIGNING BELLATOR

WELTERWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION,

FUNKY BEN ASKREN!

SEAN: SPECTACULAR WREFRLING

CREDENTIALS FOR BEN ASKREN,

WRESTLING CHAMPION AT

UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI, PA

TWO-TIME NATIONAL RUNNERUP

AND CHAMPION, HE REPRESENTED

THE UNITED STATES IN

FREESTYLE WRESTLING AT THE

2008 SUMMER OLYMPICS.

JIMMY: SET A RECORD FOR HIS

JUNIOR YEAR, HE'S DONE IT

ALL ON THE MAT AND WHAT'S

INTERESTING IS HE TAKES ALL

OF THAT AND APPLIES IT TO --

IN THE CAGE LIKE A WRESTLING

MATCH.

NOT MANY GUYS CAN BEAT HIM

AT THAT.

SEAN: BEN ASKREN A PERFECT

11-0 IN HIS PRO MMA CAREER.

JIMMY: HE WON THE

WELTERWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

TITLE.

THAT WAS HIS COMING OUT

PARTY.

THAT SHOCKED EVERYBODY HOW

DOMINANT HE WAS, AND

DEFEATED LYMAN GOOD FOR THE

WORLD TITLE.

SEAN: JIMMY, SO MANY WORLD

CLASS WRESTLERS HAVE COME

INTO OUR SPORT OF MIXED

MARTIAL ARTS AND FALL THEN

LOVE WITH THE STRIKING.

THEY WANT TO BE KNOCKOUT

ARTISTS, THEY FORGET THEY'RE

WRESTLERS AT HEART.

ASKREN IS NOT GUILTY OF ANY

OF THAT.

JIMMY: HE SAYS I'M A

GRAPPLER AT HEART.

THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO DO

IT WELL.

SEAN: LET'S DO THE NUMBERS

OF OUR TALE OF THE TAPE FOR

THIS FIGHT IS BROUGHT TO YOU

JIMMY: YOU SEE THAT REACH

ADVANTAGE OF KORESCHKOV.

HE GETS IT ON THE SECOND

ATTEMPT.

LOCKING UP THE GUILLOTINE.

JIMMY: THAT'S NOT A GO TEEN.

THAT'S A WRESTLING MOVE.

SEAN: OUR FIGHT CLOCK IS

BROUGHT TO YOU BY MILLER

LIGHT, THE OFFICIAL BEER OF

BELLATOR.

JIMMY: LOCKING UP BOTH ARMS.

HE CAN BREAK HIS SHOWED

WEATHER THIS.

THE GROSSMAN --

SEAN: DOING SO GIVES UP FULL

MOUNT.

THAT'S A GO TEEN ATTEMPT.

JIMMY: LOCKING THE HANDS,

YOU'RE 0-2 SEAN BUT THAT'S

OK.

SEAN: I NEED TO GO TO

WRESTLING PRACTICE WITH YOU.

JIMMY: IT'S BEEN A LONG

TIME.

I JUST REMEMBER THE NAMES

MANY TYING UP THE ARMS.

THAT'S FUNKY BEN ASKREN.

YOU DIDN'T SEE CONDITIONS

LIKE THIS VERY OFTEN IN

WRESTLING.

NEAR SIDE CRADLE, WHO USES

THAT?

IN THE GUILLOTINE POSITION

NOW.

HE MIGHT FINISH THIS.

SEAN: THAT IS ASKREN LOOKING

FOR THE VERY QUICK FIRST

ROUND SUBMISSION FINISH.

YOU SEE THE ARM IN.

THERE'S THE START FROM THE

BEN ASKREN.

THUMBS UP UP FROM

KORESCHKOV.

ASKREN COMMITTING AN LETS IT

GO.

JIMMY: THAT'S ONE THING HE'S

NOT BEEN ABLE TO SHOW IN

BELLATOR IS HIS SUBMISSION

SKILLS.

GREAT CONTROL, BUT NO REAL

SUBMISSION VICTORIES.

SEAN: ASKREN GREAT FINDING

THE LEGS.

SO STICKY ON ANDREY

KORESCHKOV.

JIMMY: THIS IS THE FIGHT

KORESCHKOV DID NOT WANT.

GOT A SUBMISSION AGAINST

RYAN THOMAS IN HIS BELLATOR

DEBUT, BUT THAT WAS A BAD

STOPPAGE.

THOMAS IS OK.

SEAN: LOOKING FOR THE INSIDE

TRIP.

JIMMY: ASKREN FIND ANGLES

AND POSITIONS THAT NO ONE IN

MMA DON'T FIND WHEN HE WAS

WRESTLING IN MISSOURI HIS

OPPONENTS LOOKED CONFUSED

LIKE THEY HAD NEVER SEEN

THIS BEFORE.

THOSE GUYS HAVE BEEN

WRESTLING THEIR ENTIRE

LIVES.

SEAN: KIND FRD LIKE ME WHEN

HE WAS WALKING I.

JIMMY: I UNDERSTAND WHY.

NEAR SIDE CRADLE.

WHO USES THAT IN MMA?

SEAN: PUNCHES NOW FROM

ASKREN IN THE TOP.

JIMMY: BECAUSE OF THE

TRAINING METHOD, THIS IS THE

FIRST TIME HE'S EVER FELT

THIS BEFORE.

SEAN: REFEREE JASON HERZOG

KEEPING A WATCHFUL EYE.

JIMMY: GOING FOR THE NEAR

NAKED.

SEAN: COMMITMENT BY ASKREN.

NEVER GOT HIM BELOW THE

CHIN.

JIMMY: WHAT IS ASKREN'S

STYLE?

IN A FUNKY PLACE YOU NEEDS

TO KEEP PRESSURE ON HIM.

SEAN: OUTSTANDING ELBOWS BY

BEN ASKREN.

IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE SO

DOWNLOAD THE BELLATOR MMA

APP.

IT IS FREE, AVAILABLE FOR

iPHONES AND ALL AN DROIPD

SYSTEMS.

YOU HAD CAN BE THE FOURTH

JUCHBLGT ASKREN LOOKING FOR

THE FIRST ROUND FINISH.

AT HOME 82% OF YOU THINK

THAT BEN ASKREN IS WINNING

THE FIGHT.

WHO ARE THE OTHER 18%?

JIMMY: I DON'T KNOW, BUT

ASKREN IS ALL OVER

KORESCHKOV NOW.

WE SAW THAT REAR NAKED.

DIDN'T GET IT.

THAT'S MORE OF HIS STYLE.

MORE CHAIN GRAPPLING.

THAT'S WHAT HE'S BETTER AT.

SEAN: ASKREN IN.

JIMMY: KORESCHKOV NOT ONLY

WANTED TO KEEP STANDING.

HE WANTED DISTANCE.

SEAN: BIG MISTAKE.

JIMMY: SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON

HIS RIGHT SLOWING JABS FROM

THE BEGINNING.

I LOVE SPORTSMANSHIP, BUT I

WOULD NOT LET ASKREN THAT

CLOSE TO ME.

SEAN: KORESCHKOV FINDING

HIMSELF DEFENDING SUBMISSION

ATTEMPTS, TRYING TO MITIGATE

THE DAMAGE FROM THE BOTTOM

ON BEN ASKREN.

TRYING TO GET TO HIS FEET.

HERE'S WHERE HE'S IN DANGER.

SEAN: LOOK AT THE ANKLE PICK

FROM BEHIND.

WHO DOES THAT IN THIS SPORT?

JIMMY: THAT'S PURE WRESTLING

RIGHT THERE.

SEAN: LOOK AT THE TOP

PRESSURE FROM BEN ASKREN.

A FRUSTRATING ROUND FOR

ANDREY KORESCHKOV.

THIS IS FOR THE WELTERWEIGHT

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP.

NEXT UP, IT IS THE BELLATOR

LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD

CHAMPIONSHIP.

IT'S THE CHAMPION AT 170

POUNDS ON CRUISE CONTROL

JIMMY: THIS IS WHAT I WAS

TALKING ABOUT.

LOOK IN THE OPENING ROUND,

HE COMES IN.

RIGHT NOW OF COURSE THE

ANGLING AND TOUCHING GLOVES

WITH BEN ASKREN.

BEN ASKREN TOOK ADVANTAGE OF

THAT.

SEAN: ROUND NUMBER TWO JUST

UNDERWAY.

KORESCHKOV HOLDING TOP

POSITION.

JIMMY: SO HARD TO KEEP

AGAINST BEN ASKREN.

SEAN: THE UNDEFEATED RUSSIAN

ANDREY KORESCHKOV IN THE

WHITE TRUNKS, THE UNDEFEATED

BEN ASKREN.

JIMMY: IF YOU START TO ROLL

AROUND WITH THIS GUY YOU'RE

IN TROUBLE.

THAT'S WHAT HE WAS SO GOOD

AT WRESTLING IN NCAA.

HE ENDS UP COMING OUT ON

TOP.

SEAN: HOW SIMPLE DID THAT

LOOK BY ASKREN AGAINST AN

UNDEFEATED FIGHTER?

SIDE CONTROL THE BACK MOUNT

IN.

JIMMY: A LOT OF PEOPLE ASK

PEA IS KORESCHKOV THE MOST

DANGEROUS GUY BEN HAS

FOUGHT?

NOBODY IS DANGEROUS ON THEIR

BUTT.

THAT'S WHERE THEY END UP

WITH BEN.

NONE OF THEM ARE DANGEROUS

ON THEIR BACK.

SEAN: IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING

TONIGHT'S LIVE BELLATOR, AN

ALL NEW EPISODE OF FIGHT

MASTER BELLATOR MMA RIGHT

HERE ON SPIKE.

JIMMY: I DON'T KNOW IF YOU

MISSED THAT.

HE JUST SAT UP AND CHANTED

"USA" TO THE CROWD.

SEAN: IF YOU WONDER WHY HIS

NICKNAME IS FUNKY THAT, CAME

FROM WRESTLING, NOT MMA.

WE ARE GETTING A GOOD

EXAMPLE.

THAT POSES THE QUESTION, WHO

DOES THIS?

JIMMY: HE'S SO CONFIDENT

RIGHT NOW.

DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THERE'S

ANYTHING KORESCHKOV CAN DO

TO HIM.

THIS IS FROM NEAR HIS RIGHT.

SEAN: ASKREN AGAIN YOU SEE

TAKING THE BACK OF ANDRE

KORESCHKOV, WHO HAS BLOOD

COMING FROM UNDER HIS RIGHT

EYE AND IS DANGER OF GIVING

UP ON THE REAR NAKED CHOKE

AR AT LEAST GIVING IT AWAY.

NOT IN DANGER OF GIVING UP

YET.

A LOT OF FIGHT IN

KORESCHKOV.

THIS IS ONE-WAY TRAFFIC.

JIMMY: IT'S ALMOST LIKE HE

WANTS TO YOU KEEP ROLLING

AROUND.

HE WANTS TO KEEP MOVING.

HE DOESN'T KEEP HIS

OPPONENTS FROM MOVING, LIKE

A JUI JITSU GUY WOULD.

REALLY PUTS THE HITS IN AND

STOPS HIS OPPONENTS.

HE DOESN'T DO THAT HE LIKES

THIS TRANSITIONAL KIND OF

GAME.

SEAN: LOOK AT ASKREN SUCKING

IN THE LEFT WRIST OF

KORESCHKOV, TRAPPING THE

ARM.

JIMMY, I LIKE TO THEN WE

HAVE DEEP KNOWLEDGE OF THE

SPORT OF MMA AND I'M OUT OF

IDEAS.

WHO HAS EVER FOUGHT LIKE

THIS ON THE GROUND IN MMA?

JIMMY: THAT KIND OF STYLE,

THE ONLY THING I CONDITIONAL

THINK OF.

A SUBMISSION GUY WOULD

ATTACK FROM FUNKY POSITIONS,

BEN HOLDS FUNKY POSITIONS

AND MOVES IN A STRANGE WAY,

SO EVEN A FUNKY SUBMISSION

GUY DOESN'T MOVE LIKE THIS.

SEAN: STEPPING OVERLOOKING

FOR NORTH-SOUTH.

SEPTEMBER 7th, BEAUTIFUL

CONNECTICUT, TICKETS ON

SALE.

GO TO BELLATOR.COM FOR THE

FULL FALL SEASON.

IT WILL START ON A SATURDAY

AND MOVE TO FRIDAY RIGHT

HERE LIVE ON SPIKE.

BEN ASKREN JUST MAULING WITH

HIS TOP GAME ANDREY

KORESCHKOV.

NOW STEPPING OVER WITH THE

KNEE POSITION, KORESCHKOV IN

ALL SORTS OF TROUBLE, BUT

WHEN HAS HE NOT BEEN IN THIS

FIGHT?

JIMMY: THE THING TO ALSO

REMEMBER, THIS IS HIS

CONDITIONING LEVEL.

BEN ASKREN CAN GRAPPLE

FOREVER.

HE CAN DO THIS FOR HOURS AT

A TIME, SO HE CAN KEEP THE

PACE ON WHEN YOU'RE OUT OF

GAS.

SEAN: WHEN I FIRST MET

BELLATOR BEN ASKREN, THE

START OF SEASON NUMBER TWO

IN 2010, HE SAID I'M NOT

WEIGHTLIFTER STRONG, BUT IN

WRESTLING I CAN GRIP ON AND

HOLD ON ALL DAY.

JIMMY: IT'S LIKE NOTHING

YOU'VE EVER FECHLT HE GETS

HOLD OF YOU, YOU'RE NOT

GOING ANYWHERE.

SEAN: YOU SEE THE FUCHS OF

BEN ASKREN.

JIMMY: THAT NATURAL GRIP

STRENGTH HAS GOT IT.

SEAN: YOU SAW THE PASS FROM

HALF GUARD.

KORESCHKOV TRYING TO BRIDGE

OUT OF THE SIDE CONTROL OF

BEN ASKREN AND FINDING NO

JOY.

ANDREY KORESCHKOV HAS FOUND

NO JOY IN THIS

JIMMY: YOU SEE THAT AFTER

THE ROUND, HE PICKED SKOICH

AND CARRIED HIM BACK TO HIS

CORNER.

THAT'S NOT A GOOD SIGN AT

THE END OF ROUND NUMBER TWO,

SEAN.

SEAN: JIMMY, YOUR SCORE

GUARD IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY:.

JIMMY: ALL CAN YOU ARGUE IS

ARE THEY 10-8.

THE HE HASN'T BEEN CLOSE TO

STOPPING THE FIGHT.

SEAN: LOOK AT THE SOMERSAULT

POSITION FROM THE BACK OF

THE 170-POUND DIVISION BEN

ASKREN.

AGAIN WE TALKED AT THE TOP

OF FIGHT, ANDREY KORESCHKOV,

NATIVE OF RUSSIA, ONE OF THE

GREATEST WRESTLING COUNTRIES

OF THE WORLD ELECTING NOT TO

BRING A SINGLE WRESTLER INTO

HIS TRAINING CAMP FOR THIS

FIGHT.

JIMMY, YOU QUESTIONED THAT

AND I SEE WHY.

JIMMY: YOU SEE THAT SHELL

SHOCKED LOOK ON HIS FACE

LIKE WHAT IS GOING ON HERE.

SEAN: BEN ASKREN SIMPLY WILL

NOT PLAY A STRIKER'S GAME.

HE'S VERY ON, AND HIS

STRIKING IS NOT AT A TOP

LEVEL, BUT HE THINKS HIS

WRESTLING IS AS GOOD OR

BETTER THAN ANYBODY IN THE

SPORT OF MMA.

JIMMY: I SKATE UPHILL.

IF YOU HAVE A METHOD THAT

CAN BEAT YOUR OH POEPT, YOU

TAKE IT.

THAT'S WHAT BEN ASKREN HAS

IS CONFIDENCE.

SEAN: AT NO TIME HAS REFEREE

JASON HERZOG BEEN CLOSE TO

THIS FIGHT.

THERE HAVEN'T BEEN BIG BLOWS

FROM ASKREN.

JIMMY: HE'S BUSY.

A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK HE'S

BORING.

HE'S JUST NOT VERY HEAVY

HANDED.

SO JUST LIKE THIS.

LITTLE PUNCHES, BUT A

THOUSAND OF THEM HURT.

SEAN: AND SUCKING IN THE

WRIST.

WOULD YOU RATHER BE PUNCHED

HARD TEN TIMES OR A THOUSAND

TIMES LIKE THAT?

JIMMY: TEN TIMES YOU'RE

KNOCKED OUT AND IT'S OVERBE.

--

OVERWITH.

SEAN: WE SAW IT IN THE LIMA

TITLE FIGHT.

JIMMY: THIS IS VINTAGE BEN

ASKREN.

I WILL TAP YOU ON THE HEAD

FOR 25 MINUTES UNTIL I WIN

THE FIGHT.

SEAN: STILL TO COME, OUR

SECOND BELLATOR WORLD TITLE

FIGHT OF THE NIGHT, THIS FOR

THE LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD TITLE

OF BELLATOR, DAVID RICKELS

VS. THE CHAMPION, MICHAEL

CHANDLER.

JIMMY: YOU SEE WHEN HE GOES

FOR THE SBHIRX HE GOES FOR

THE FINISH, THOSE TECHNICAL

DEFICIENCIES COME OUT.

HE HASN'T BEEN DOING JUI

JITSU THAT LONG.

HE'S A BROWN BELT BUT ONLY

BEEN DOING IT TWO YEARS.

YOU SEE WHEN IT COMES TO

SUBMISSION ATTACKS, GREAT

SUBMISSION, GREAT HITS.

BENING HIS WHOLE LIFE.

SEAN: BLOOD POURING FROM

UNDER THE RIGHT OF ANDREY

KORESCHKOV.

BEN ASKREN IS TURNING UP THE

VOLUME NOW.

JIMMY: KORESCHKOV HAS

OFFERED NOTHING THIS ENTIRE

FIGHT.

SEAN: AND BEN ASKREN'S LAST

TITLE DEFENSE VS. CARL

AMOUSSOU IT WAS A SUBMISSION

IN ROUND TWO BUT IT WAS THE

ATTRITION OF THOSE BLOWS

THAT AMOUSSOU TOOK OVER 15

MINUTES.

JIMMY: REMEMBER BEN ASKREN

GOES THE DISTANCE IN ALMOST

EVERY FIGHT.

KORESCHKOV HAS ONLY GONE THE

DISTANCE TWICE AND KNOWS

IT'S ONLY 15-MINUTE FIGHTS.

SEAN: BEN ASKREN BY CONTRAST

HAS GONE AT LEAST 15 MINUTES

IN HIS LAST SEVEN FIGHTS.

JIMMY: YOU THINK HE'S GOING

TO GET TIRED, THINK AGAIN.

SEAN: ONE WARNING BY REFEREE

JASON HERZOG, PUNCHES TO THE

BACK OF THE HEAD.

TOTAL AND UTTER DOMINANCE BY

BEN ASKREN.

JIMMY: PEOPLE IN THE CROWD

STOP BOOING, BECAUSE BEN

ASKREN DOES NOT CHANGE.

SEAN: KORESCHKOV DESPERATELY

TRYING TO GET TO HIS FEET.

KORESCHKOV IS AN OUTSIDE

STRIKER.

JIMMY: HE'S NOT GOING TO HIT

WITH YOU A SHORT LEFT HOOK

FROM THE INSIDE.

HE'S NOT THAT MIKE TYSON

TYPE OF STRIKER.

SEAN: IT'S NOT DIRTY BOXING.

JIMMY: NOPE, IT'S THE RANGE.

SEAN: AND AGAIN, BEN ASKREN

WON'T PLAY THAT GAME.

HE MAY BE CLIPPED, BUT HE'S

TO THE GOING TO STAY OUTSIDE

AND LET YOU PEPPER HIM WITH

SHOTS.

JIMMY: AT THE END OF HIS

PUNCH, HE'S DEADLY.

SEAN: ASKREN NOW LOOKING FOR

THE ARMBAR.

CLOSING SECONDS OF ROUND

NUMBER THREE.

BEN ASKREN LOOKING EVERY BIT

THE UNDEFEATED WORLD

CHAMPION OF BELLATOR'S

SEAN: FANS ON THE BELLATOR

APP YOU HAVE THIS, THREE

ROUNDS TO NOTHING IN FAVOR

OF BEN ASKREN.

DO YOU HAVE 10-8 OR 10-9 FOR

ROUND THREE?

JIMMY: I HAVE A 10-8 ROUND,

AND THE ACCUMULATION OF

DAMAGE HAS STARTED TO GET TO

KORESCHKOV.

SEAN: IT'S IN THE

CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND.

STOP FROM BEN ASKREN, ASKREN

WALKS RIGHT THROUGH THE

SPRAWL AND INTO CONTROL.

JIMMY: NO GUARD THERE AT

ALL.

SEAN: PASSING OVER FILL

MOUNT LOOKING FOR THE HEAD

AND ARM CHOKE TO FINISH IS

BEN ASKREN.

JIMMY: KORESCHKOV IS NOT

PUTTING UP MUCH OF A FIGHT

HERE.

SEAN: KORESCHKOV CUT UNDER

HIS RIGHT EYE AND CUT IN HIS

LEFT LID.

ASKREN GIVING UP ON THE

CHOKE ATTEMPT.

COULDN'T PASS INTO THE CAGE,

AND EASILY BACK TO FULL

MOUNT.

JIMMY: KORESCHKOV IS DONE.

HE'S IN THERE.

HE'S STILL DOING SOMETHING,

BUT --

SEAN: REFEREE JASON HERZOG

SAID YOU HAVE TO MOVE, YOU

HAVE TO DO SOMETHING.

JIMMY: THIS FIGHT IS OVER.

THIS IS WHAT ASKREN DOES.

HE MENTALLY BREAKS GUYS.

RIGHT NOW KORESCHKOV CLEARLY

TO ME HAS NOTHING LEFT.

SEAN: JIMMY, DO YOU THINK

THE TRAINING CAMP OF

KORESCHKOV WAS ADEQUATE?

JIMMY: YEAH, THERE ARE GREAT

WRESTLERS IN RUSSIA.

I DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND

IT.

WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT WAS

IT'S GREAT, BUT BEN ASKREN

DOESN'T FIGHT THAT WAY.

IT DOESN'T MAKE IT AN MMA

FIGHT.

HE MAKES IT A WRESTLING

MATCH.

CAN'T BEAT HIM AT THAT.

SEAN: SO THE OTHER SIDE OF

THAT AND PROBABLY THE

KORESCHKOV AND HIS TRAINER

ALEXANDER'S POINT, HOW MUCH

WRESTLING REALLY IS

KORESCHKOV GOING TO LEARN IN

EIGHT OR TEN OR 12 WEEKS OF

TRAINING CAMP?

JIMMY: IT'S NOT ABOUT

LEARNING.

IT'S EXPERIENCE IS ALL CAN I

SEE.

AT LEAST YOU CAN SAY, HEY,

I'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE.

IT'S A MENTAL THING.

IF YOU'VE BEEN IN THERE WITH

HIGH LEVEL WRESTLERS YOU GO

OK, WELL, TUESDAY, I'M USED

TO IT.

MENTALLY, IT'S SO MUCH

BETTER.

IF YOU'RE IN THAT LEVEL,

YOU'RE IN THE CAGE.

SEAN: I AGREE.

YOU HAVE TO SIMULATE THESE

POSITIONS, LOOK AT THE

POSITIONING OF REFEREE JASON

HERZOG.

THE CLOSER HE GETS, THE MORE

LIKELY HE IS TO STOPPING

THIS FIGHT.

JIMMY: HE'S LOOKING TO STOP

THIS FIGHT.

SEAN: ASKREN WAS TALKING TO

HERZOG TELLING HIM STOP THIS

FIGHT.

I THINK THE END IS REALLY

CLOSE NOW.

JIMMY: IS BEN ASKREN LOADED

UP ON A COUPLE SHOTS IT

SHOULD BE OVER.

SEAN: KORESCHKOV JUST TAKING

THE PUCHTS.

THERE'S THE DOUBLE PUNCH TO

THE HEAD, THE RIGHT AND THE

LEFT HANDS.

THAT IS IT.

TITLE DEFENSE NUMBER FOUR

FOR BEN ASKREN, AND HE MADE

IT LOOK EASY.

JIMMY: KORESCHKOV HAD

NOTHING FOR BEN ASKREN

TONIGHT, THE NOTHING AT THAT

TIME.

SEAN: FOURTH ROUND TKO

VICTORY FOR BELLATOR'S

REIGNING AND SOMETIME

UNDEFEATED WELTERWEIGHT

WORLD CHAMPION, BEN ASKREN.

JIMMY: KORESCHKOV WAS

UNDEFEATED AND NEVER TASTED

A LOSS IN HIS CAREER.

BEN ASKREN MADE HIM LOOK

COMPLETELY UNPREPARED.

SEAN: EARLIER TONIGHT IN THE

SKROUD, WE SAW THE GREAT

BOXER, ROY JONES, JUNIOR.

HE PITCHED A SHUTOUT AGAINST

VINNY.

THAT'S THE NBA EQUIVALENT TO

PITCHING A SHUTOUT.

REEBOK BRINGS YOU OUR FIGHT

REPLAY.

JIMMY: NOT MUCH OF A

HIGHLIGHT HERE BECAUSE BEN

DID WHAT HE WAS DOING THE

WHOLE TIME.

IT WAS CLEAR KORESCHKOV

WASN'T GOING ANYWHERE.

THAT'S A HUMANE STOPPAGE BY

JASON HERZOG.

YOU CAN TELL BEGINNING THIS

ROUND, KORESCHKOV WAS DONE.

NOTHING BIG THERE, BUT

KORESCHKOV IS NOT ANSWERING

BACK.

SEAN: WHEN WE RETURN, JIMMY

SMITH WILL SPEAK TO THAT

MAN.

HE IS BELLATOR'S UNDEFEATED

AND DOMINANT WELTERWEIGHT

WORLD CHAMPION, BEN ASKRE

B.

SEAN: BEN ASKREN

WELTERWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION

DOMINATING ANDREY

KORESCHKOV.

LET'S TAKE YOU TO ROUND

NUMBER FOUR.

BEN ASKREN IN SUCH CONTROL

CAN HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH

JASON HERZOG ASKING WHAT

MORE DO I HAVE TO DO.

HE CERTAINLY DID ENOUGH TO

GET THE WIN.

HERE IS MICHAEL WILLIAMS.

>> SLAOIJD THE CAGE REFEREE

JASON HERZOG WAVES OFF THE

CONTEST, OFFICIAL TIME 2.

58 INTO ROUND NUMBER FOUR,

THE WINNER BY TKO AND STILL

THE BELLATOR WORLD CHAMPION,

FUNKY BEN ASKREN!

SEAN: LET'S GO TO JIMMY, WHO

IS IN THE CAGE.

JIMMY: I'M HERE WITH

WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION, BEN

ASKREN.

YOU'VE GOT YOUR BELT RIGHT

HERE, ANOTHER DANGEROUS

STRIKER FINDS OUT WHAT IT'S

LIKE TO BETON GROUND WITH

BEN ASKREN.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT.

>> ANDREY KORESCHKOV SAID

HE'S NEVER BEEN BROKEN, WELL

SNAP, CRACK EL AND POP!

JIMMY: HOW DID THAT FEEL?

>> I DON'T KNOW IF THESE

GUYS ARE ANTIAMERICAN OR

COMMUNIST, BUT THEY STARTED

BOOING.

THEY CONFUSION ME DOWN HERE

IN NEW MEXICO.

JIMMY: WHAT DO YOU SEE FOR A

TOURNAMENT FINAL, DOUGLAS

LIMA COMING UP, WINNER

TAKING YOU ON?

WHAT DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT

FIGHT AND YOUR FUTURE IN

BELLATOR?

>> WELL, I'M THE BEST

FIGHTER IN THE WORLD, SO LET

ME GET IN THE CAGE AND PROVE

IT, BABY.

JIMMY: YOU HEARD IT, YOUR

WELTERWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION,

BEN ASKREN, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

SEAN: BEN ASKREN ABSOLUTELY

DOMINANT, A PERFECT 12-0 IN

HIS PRO-MMA CAREER, FOUR

SUCCESSFUL DEFENSIVE TITLES.

THAT PITCHING IS SHUTOUT.

JIMMY: THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT

BEN ASKREN DOES.

IN EVERY SINGLE FIGHT GOT ON

TOP, LANDED ENOUGH PUNCHES

TO DO DAMAGE OVER TIME AN

GOT THE STOPPAGE.

WHEN YOU FACE AND YOU'RE

READY, I DON'T CARED WHOEVER

YOU ARE, WHOEVER TAKES HIM

ON NEXT IS IN TROUBLE.

SEAN: THERE YOU SEE AMY

ASKREN, BEN'S WIFE ALL

SMILES.

JIMMY: SHE'S PROGRESSIVELY

LESS NERVOUS AS HER

HUSBAND'S CAREER GOES ON.

I DON'T THINK SHE'S HAD A

TROUBLED MOMENT HIS ENTIRE

CAREER.

SEAN: LET'S NOW TAKE YOU TO

EARLIER TONIGHT, ACTION THAT

MANY OF YOU SAW LIVE ON

SPIKE.COM IN THE BELLATOR

BANTAMWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

SEMIFINAL ROUND.

RAFAEL SILVA VS. RODRIGO

LIMA.

JIMMY: SILVA ABLE TO GET THE

TOURNGS LIMA GOING FOR

SUBMISSIONS, IT WAS MOSTLY

LIKE YOU SAID ON THE GROUND,

AND EAR LIMA TAKING A WRIST,

GAVE HIS BACK TO THE

TALENTED BRAZILIAN AND GAVE

UP THE REAR NAKED FINISH.

SEAN: RAFAEL SILVA WINS BY

CHOKE POSITION, TWO MINUTES,

THREE SECONDS, SO RAFAEL

SILVA ADVANCES TO THE

BANTAMWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

FINAL.

IN THE OTHER BANTAMWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT SEMIFINAL THIS

EVENING, ANTHONY LEONE VS.

ALBUQUERQUE'S FRANK BACA.

JIMMY: BACA GOT A RIGHT HAND

TO DROP LEONE, BUT LEONE

GOING HARD FOR THE TAKEDOWN,

HE WILL STAY ON TOP, LAND

SOME GROUND-AND-POUND, AND

FINALLY IN ROUND THREE, YOU

SEE HERE ONE HOOK IN, BUT

ABLE TO PUT THE PRESSURE ON.

ANOTHER REAR NAKED CHOKE

VICTORY IN THE BANTAMWEIGHT

TOURNAMENT.

SEAN: THE SUBMISSION FOR

LEONE COMES 1 MINUTE 7

SECONDS OF ROUND NUMBER

THREE.

SO, THE BELLATOR

BANTAMWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

FINAL IS SET, RAFAEL SILVA

WILL FACE ANTHONY LEONE.

THE WINNER ADVANCES TO A

WORLD TITLE SHOT VS.

BELLATOR'S EDUARDO DANTE.

YOU JUST SAW ONE WORLD TITLE

FIGHT.

COMING UP IT IS OUR OTHER

WORLD TITLE FIGHT, THIS WILL

BE IN THE LIGHTWEIGHT

DIVISION.

JIMMY: MICHAEL CHANDLER, YOU

SEE THE SPEED WORKOUT.

HE HAS FAITH IN HIS HANDS.

HE'S GOING TO NEEDS IT

AGAINST HIS OPPONENT, DAVID

THE CAVEMAN RICKELS, VERY

TALL AT 155 POUNDS.

CAN HE BRING THAT LARGE

FRAME TO BEAR AGAINST THE

CHAMPION?

SEAN: OUR LOCKER ROOM CAM IS

BROUGHT TO YOU BY JOSEPH A

BANK CLOTHE YES, SIR.

SEAN: EARLIER TONIGHT,

QUENTIN RAMPAGE JACKSON

ANNOUNCED HE WILL MAKE HIS

BELLATOR DEBUT VS. TITO

ORTIZ, WHO WILL ALSO BE

MAKING A DEBUT.

IT WILL BE BELLATOR'S FIRST

EVER PAY PER VIEW SET FOR

SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER

2nd FROM LONG BEACH,

CALIFORNIA.

MAIN EVENT, RAMPAGE VS.

TITO.

JIMMY: WAIT UNTIL THEY

ANNOUNCE THE OTHER FIGHTS ON

THAT CARD.

I'M EXCITED ABOUT THOSE.

SEAN: THERE IS QUENTIN

RAMPAGE JACKSON, BELLATOR'S

FOUNDER BJORN REBNEY.

I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT WAIT FOR

THIS FIGHT.

AN ABSOLUTELY STACKED CARD,

IT'S LIVED UP TO AND

SURPASSED THE BILLING, AND

ONE MORE WORLD TITLE

FIGHTING TO, IT'S THE

LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD TITLE

FIGHT.

JIMMY: YOU SEE THERE

DEFEATING CUPCAKE IN THE

OPENING ROUND AND JASON

FISHER WHO GAVE HIM TROUBLE

IN HIS DEBUT DOMINATED HIM

FOR THREE ROUNDS IN THE

SEMIFINAL, IMPOSING HIS WILL,

AND THEN IN THE FINAL

AGAINST AWAD CAME BACK, HAD

A ROUGH START.

HE HAD A GREAT WALK-IN BUT A

ROUGH START IN THE FIGHT

AGAINST AWAD AND CAME BACK

WITH POWER PUNCH TO GO GET

THE TKO VICTORY.

HE'S GOING TO NEEDS THOSE

PUNCHES TONIGHT AGAINST

MICHAEL CHANDLER.

SEAN: SCHEDULED FOR FIVE

FIVE-MINUTE ROUND, DAVID

RICKELS VS. THE UNDEFEATED

CHAMPION, MICHAEL CHANDLER.

>> EVERY SINGLE MORNING I

WAKE UP LOVING MY LIFE,

LOVING THAT GOD PUT ME IN

THIS SPORT.

>> I WOULD LOVE TO KNOCK

THIS GUY THE [BLEEP] OUT.

I WANT TO MAKE HIM LESS

PRETTY.

I WANT TO TAKE AN AFTER

PICTURE WITH HIM ALL LUMPED

UP EVERYWHERE THAT WOULD BE

MY BEST FACEBOOK PHOTO.

>> I THINK I'M A WORLD

CHAMPION BECAUSE OF WHO I AM,

MY HARD WORK AND DELD CASE

TO THE SPORT.

I'VE FOUND MY PURPOSE IN

FIGHTING.

>> WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION.

MICHAEL CHANDLER.

>> I DO BELIEVE THAT

TESTOSTERONE FLOWS DIRECTLY

OUT OF MY BEARD.

I GO OUT THERE, TURN IT ON

AND SMASH MODE BEGINS.

>> HE FINISHES JUST LIKE

THAT!

A LIGHTNING STRIKE FOR DAVID

RICKELS.

>> BEARD OR NOT, I WILL BE

AIMING FOR IT.

PEOPLE HAVE TO GET HURT FOR

ME TO WIN.

>> I DON'T LIKE THAT I WANT

TO KNOW THAT CAVEMAN WON AND

EARNED HIS TITLE.

>> I BELIEVE I BELONG IN

THAT TOP TEN.

IF I GOT TO EARN IT BY

BEATING CHANDLER, THAT'S

EXACTLY WHAT I'M GOING TO

DO.

>> I'VE KNOWN THIS IS MY

CALL ALL MY LIFE, SO I'VE

LITERALLY POURED EVERYTHING

INTO IT.

>> HE'S OUT COLD!

>> I WANT TO BE THE GUIDE

WHO LITTLE KIDS LOOK UP TO

AND SAY, I DON'T JUST WANT

TO BE A WORLD CHAMPION.

I WANT TO BE A WORLD

CHAMPION LIKE MICHAEL

CHANDLER.

SEAN: MICHAEL CHANDLER

LOOKING TO MOVE HIS PRO-MMA

RECORD TO 12-0 AND MAKE HIS

SECOND DEFENSE OF THIS WILL

BELLATOR WORLD TAOICHLT IN

HIS WAY IS THE UNPREDICTABLE

CAVEMAN, DAVID RICKELS, WHO

THINKS THAT HE WILL SHOCK

THE WESTERN WORLD AND RECORD

A MAJOR UPSET.

SEAN: MICHAEL CHANDLER WAS

WRESTLING TEAMMATES AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI WITH

BEN ASKREN.

CHANDLER WILL DEFEND HIS

BELLATOR WORLD TITLE.

SEAN: WE HAVE NOW REACHED

TONIGHT'S FIGHT FOR THE

BELLATOR LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD

CHAMPIONSHIP.

>> TERNG TITLE SHOT AS A

TOURNAMENT CHAMPION, DAVID

THE CAVEMAN RICKELS!

SEAN: DAVID RICKELS, JUST 24

YEARS OLD, 14-1 IN HIS PRO

MMA CAREER AND NOW A CHANCE

TO BECOME BELLATOR'S NEW

LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION.

I THINK ONE OF THE STRENGTHS

ABOUT RICKELS, HE'S A VERY

REALISTIC FIGHTER IN

ASSESSING HIS ON SKILLS.

JIMMY: HE WILL ALWAYS SAY

I'M NOT GREAT IN ANY ONE

THING, I'M A SCRAPER, I'M

BIG FOR THIS WEIGHT CLASS.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU

REALLY HAVE.

SEAN: EARLIER, WE TALKED

ABOUT ANDREY KORESCHKOV

ELECTING TO BRING IN NOT ONE

SINGLE WRESTLER IN TRAINING

FOR BEN ASKREN.

DAVID RICKELS TOLD US HE'S

WORKED WITH A LOT OF

WRESTLERS TRAINING FOR

CHANDLER.

CHANDLER NEVER WAS OLYMPIAN

LIKE ASKREN BECAUSE WAS

DIVISION ONE CHAMPION AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI.

JIMMY: JUST ONE LOSS ON HIS

RECORD, AT 170 POUNDS

AGAINST AMOUSSOU, AND THAT A

VERY CONTROVERSIAL DECISION.

SEAN: DAVID RICKELS FEELS

HIS KEY TO SUCCESS IS TO

KEEP THIS FIGHT STANDING.

HE SAID HE WORKED ON

DEFENSIVE WRESTLE WHG HE WAS

DOWN POWERING UP, MAYBE

THROW UP A TRIANGLE, BUT NOT

HANGING OUT IN CLOSED GUARD,

NOT HANGING OUT IN HALF OR

OPEN GUARD, GETTING BACK TO

HIS FEET.

HE KNOWS AND ADMITTED HE'S

NOT GOING TO WIN A GRAPPLING

MATCH VS. MICHAEL CHANDLER.

JIMMY: HE'S GOOD OFF HIS

BACK, BUT WRESTLERS WHO

DON'T DO ANY TRAINING IN MMA

ARE VERY HARD TO CATCH,

NATURALLY GREAT DEFENSE.

MICHAEL CHANDLER HAS BEEN

TRAINING HARD IN MMA FOR A

LOT OF YEARS.

>> LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD

CHAMPION, MICHAEL CHANDLER.

SEAN: BELLATOR'S UNDEFEATED

LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION MICHAEL

CHANDLER WALK TO GO THE CAGE,

LOOKING TO MAKE HIS SECOND

SUCCESSFUL TITLE DEFENSE.

RELATIVELY LATE TO MMA, THIS

IS HIS 12th PRO FIGHT, 27

YEARS OLD, SO LESS

EXPERIENCED THAN RICKELS,

BUT AGAIN THAT OUTSTANDING

COLLEGIATE PEDIGREED FROM

THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI.

ALL-AMERICAN JAOCHLT JENKINS

TRYING TO POWER OUT, BUT

BARRERAS STILL HOLD THAT

GUILLOTINE.

IN ROUND ONE OF THIS

LIGHTWEIGHT FIGHT.

NOMINAL PACE AND TELL FOE

THUS FAR.

LOOK AT THE SWELLING THERE,

THE LEFT EYE OF BARRERAS.

AGAIN HE HAD THE MOUSE UNDER

HIS RIGHT EYE.

THE LEFT EYE IS HIS CONCERN

AT THE MOMENT.

BARRERAS SAID, I'LL GIVE

JENKINS THE EDGE IN WRESTLE,

TEMPO?

AFTER THAT.

THE GROUND-AND-POUND JUST

NOWHERE TO GO.

BEAUTIFUL HIT PRESSURE AND

THAT IS THE TKO WIN, THE

FIRST OF HIS CAREER FOR

BUBBA JENKINS.

SEAN: JIMMY, I THINK THAT'S

A CHARACTER WIN FOR JENKINS.

AGAIN THAT, DID NOT COME

EASY.

ROUND NUMBER ONE, WHO DID

YOU SEE THAT ROUND FOR?

JIMMY: I DEFENDANTLY SAW IT

FOR JENKINS.

BARRERAS HAD HIS MOMENTS

WITH THE GUILLOTINE, BUT YOU

SAW BARRERAS'S FACE AT THE

END OF THAT FIRST ROUND WAS

BEAT UP.

SEAN: STILL THOUGH, JENKINS

HAD TO ESCAPE, THREE

DIFFERENT SUBMISSION
