GREAT TENACITY WITH THAT

BACK CONTROL.

MAN, AND IT WAS THERE IT WAS

PUNCHES THAT SOFTENED HIM UP

AND REAR NAKED.

SEAN: WRANGLER REPLAY.

JIMMY: TAKE A LOOK AT IT

HERE, THIS IS THE SHOT,

BOOM.

RIGHT ON THE CHIN.

KNOCKED HIM RIGHT OFF OF HIS

FEET.

I DON'T THINK IT TOOK HIM

MENTALLY OUT OF THE FIGHT.

LOOK AT IT HERE.

WASN'T THE MOST POWER SHOT.

YOU SEE HIS EYES ARE CLEAR.

HIS EYES ARE STILL ON TIGER

SARNAVSKIY, BUT FROM THERE

TIGER SEIZED THE INITIATIVE

THAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE.

GOT THE RIGHT POSITIONING,

BOTH HOOKS IN, GOT THE REAR

NAKED CHOKE FINISH.

NEVER LET MARCUS DAVIS OFF

THE HOOK.

SEAN: A DOMINANT PERFORMANCE,

24 PRO MMA

SEAN: YOUTH VS. EXPERIENCE

IN THE BELLATOR CAGE, AND

JIMMY I THINK WE WILL GIVE

THAT TO YOUTH IN DOMINANT

FASHION.

HERE'S MICHAEL WILLIAMS.

>> THE END COMES BY WAY OF A

REAR NAKED CHOKE AT 1:40

INTO ROUND ONE, THE WINNER

BY SUBMISSION, NOW A

LIGHTWEIGHT TOURNAMENT

SEMIFINALIST TIGER

SARNAVSKIY!

SEAN: THAT IS A STEAM

ROLLER-LIKE EFFORT FOR TIGER

SARNAVSKIY.

GREAT RESPECT, FRIENDSHIP

BETWEEN DAVIS AND SARNAVSKIY

IN THIS FIGHT.

SARNAVSKIY PUT THAT

FRIENDSHIP ON HOLD FOR 1:40.

SO THE SEMIFINAL ROUND OF

THIS BELLATOR SEASON

LIGHTWEIGHT TOURNAMENT IS

NOW COMPLETE.

TIGER SARNAVSKIY ADVANCES TO

THE FINAL FOUR TO FACE THE

BRAZILIAN, RICARDO TIRLONI

TOURNAMENT OPENING ROUND.

LET'S MOVE TO THE

BANTAMWEIGHT.

BENDER VS. MARKS.

JIMMY: BENDER HIS GROUND

GAME ON DISPLAY, FIRST ROUND,

ALMOST FINISHED HIM WITH

THIS ANACONDA, THEN TOOK THE

BACK OF TRAVIS MARK, A

WIPEOUT, AND TRAVIS MARK DID

THE EXACT SAME THING THE

SECOND ROUND, BUT ON THE

FEET.

YOU SEE BENDER HAVING NO

ANSWER FOR HIS ASSAULT.

KICK AND PUNCHES, HE GETS A

SECOND ROUND.

TKO VICTORY.

SEAN: WITH THAT HIGHLY

EMOTIONAL COME FROM BEHIND

VICTORY, TRAVIS MARKS

BECOMES THE FIRST FINALIST

IN THIS SEASON NINE

BANTAMWEIGHT TOURNAMENT.

UP NEXT, IT WILL BE NICK

KIRK OR JOE WARREN, WHO IS

ATTEMPTING TO TAKE HIS FIRST

STEP TOWARD ANOTHER WORLD

TITLE.

DAD, AND HE'S IN HIS FEET, I

HEARD SOMEBODY TELL SOMEBODY

ON TELEVISION YOU'RE THE

BADDEST MAN IN THE PLANET,

AND I'M LIKE, YOU'RE DAMNED

RIGHT, SON.

>> PAT CURRAN IS THE BEST

BELLATOR CHAMPION THERE'S

GOING TO BE.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

KNOCK ME OUT, WHICH HE DID.

WHEN I DO LOSE, IT TAKES A

PIECE OF ME AWAY.

IT RIPS A PIECE OF THIS

HEART OUT, MAN.

I REMEMBER EVERY TIME I

LOST.

WHEN I'M IN A POSITION WHERE

I MIGHT LOSE, THAT'S WHERE

THAT HEART COMES FROM.

I'M GOING TO BITE DOWN AND

REMEMBER ALL THOSE TIMES I

LOST.

>> I THINK WE ARE IN

POSITION TO SEE A NEW JOE

WARREN.

>> MY FIRST IMPRESSION OF

JOE WARREN IS THIS GUY IS

CRAZY, BUT HE'S CRAZE ANY

THE BEST WAY A PERSON CAN BE

CRAZY.

ONCE YOU GET HIS RHYTHM,

HE'S NOT HARD TO TRAIN.

>> TALKED ABOUT THIS BEING

MY FIRST REAL CASE.

>> WE JUST TAKE THESE EIGHT

WEEKS AND MAKE IT SPECIFIC

FOR THIS NICK KIRK, SO WE

CAN CRUSH THIS GUY IN THE

BELLATOR CAGE.

I NEVER WAS ABLE TO SAY I

HAD A CHANCE TO DO THAT.

>> NOW HE'S BEING A STUDENT

OF THE GAME.

I THINK WE ARE GOING TO SEE

HIM COME OUT AND DOMINATE

FIGHTS FROM START TO FINISH.

>> MY MESSAGE TO THE

BELLATOR BANTAMWEIGHT

DIVISION IS YOU BETTER GET

THE HELL OUT OF THE DIVISION,

BECAUSE I'M GOING TO RUN

THROUGH AND PUT A HOLE

THROUGH THE BELLATOR CAGE

WITH YOUR HAZE.

I DON'T NEED TO TALK [BLEEP]

WITH THIS ONE.

PREPARATION FOR NICK KIRK,

RECORDING A MAJOR UPSET

VICTORY AND SHOCKING THE MMA

WORLD.

HE'S EARNED HIS PLACE, AND I

WANT IT.

THIS IS THE BIGGEST FIGHT OF

MY CAREER.

I'M NEVER GOING TO BE A

STEPPING STONE FOR ANYBODY.

HE DOESN'T RESPECT MY

ABILITIES, BUT THERE'S A LOT

HE DOESN'T REALIZE ABOUT ME.

IF HE DOESN'T RESPECT THAT,

THAT'S A FOOLISH MISTAKE

AGAIN.

I WANT TO SEND A MESSAGE IN

THIS FIGHT THAT THIS IS THE

REAL NICK KIRK, AND THIS IS

WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO SEE

FROM NOW ON.

ANNOUNCER: NOW SEPTEMBER TO

ENTER VICTORY LANE, NICK THE

BIG HURT KIRK!

BELIEVES HE CAN EFFECTIVELY

DEFEND WARREN'S TAKEDOWN AND

EVEN TAKE DOWN WARREN

HIMSELF.
