MMA: Inside the Cage #102 – “What Happens in Vegas…”


[SHOW START] (CYRUS) WHAT DO YOU THINK
ABOUT THIS FIGHT AND WHO DO YOU THINK’S GOING TO GET
THE WIN HERE? (JON) I THINK ANDERSON SILVA
GOING TO WIN THE FIGHT. I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE A
GREAT FIGHT, BUT ANDERSON’S A GREAT CHAMPION. (PETE) SILVA (RHADI) SECOND
ROUND, SILVA TKO (MIKE) I BET MY LIFE SAVINGS ON IT. I’D PROBABLY PUT MY MONEY ON
SILVA. (JOHN) I WILL, I LIKE CHAEL. YOU KNOW I JUST LOVE HIS, I
LOVE THE WAY HE IS, THE WAY HE REPRESENTS HIMSELF. I THINK THE GUYS COOL AS HELL. (VINNY) I REALLY BELIEVE THAT
HE HAS THE CAPABILITY OF BEATING ANDERSON. (ZOLTAN) I’M GOING TO GO WITH
SILVA ON THAT ONE. (FABRICIO) IT IS THE FIRST
ROUND ANDERSON FINISHES THE FIGHT FOR SURE. (ROYLER) I HOPE ANDERSON WINS
AND TAKE THIS TO BRAZIL. (MICHAEL) CHAEL SONNEN WILL
DEFEND HIS MIDDLEWEIGHT TITLE TOMORROW NIGHT. HE WILL DEFEAT ANDERSON SILVA. (JIM) I LITERALLY CAN’T PICK IT. (EDDIE) PREDICTING THAT IS
LIKE PREDICTING THE FATE OF THE WORLD, WHO THE KNOWS? [MUSIC] [MUSIC] (VOICEOVER) MMA INSIDE THE CAGE
BROUGHT TO YOU BY… (CYRUS) WELCOME TO MMA INSIDE
THE CAGE BRINGING THE WORLD OF MIXED MARTIAL ARTS STRAIGHT
TO YOU. WE’RE JUST GETTING BACK FROM
LAS VEGAS, COVERING INTERNATIONAL FIGHT
WEEK THE UFC FAN EXPO AND OF COURSE THE UFC 148. I’M YOUR HOST CYRUS FEES,
JOINED AS ALWAYS BY MISTER CASEY OXENDINE WHO IS
KIND OF LIVING LIKE MACAVALLEY OUT THERE IN VEGAS
ALL WEEKEND LONG. (CASEY) MAN JUST LIKE TUPAC
BROTHER WE WERE KICKING IT AT THE LUXOR’S. I WAS THERE WITH MY LADY,
WHICH IS MORE THAN I CAN SAY FOR YOU BROTHER, THE
REPUTATION AROUND TOWN IS YOU WERE DOWN AT HOOTERS
(CYRUS) YEAH, I WAS (CASEY) CASINO TRYING TO PICK
UP THE THREE-DOLLAR BLACKJACK, (CYRUS) CAN YOU
BLAME ME? (CASEY) SOME CHEAP WINGS,
(CYRUS) OF COURSE YOU’VE GOT CHEAP WINGS. YOU HAD THREE-DOLLAR BLACKJACK
AND THE LADIES WALKING AROUND IN THE HOOTERS GARB. (CASEY) WAY TO REPRESENT
(CYRUS) YOU CAN’T (LAUGHING) EXACTLY. LET’S TALK ABOUT INTERNATIONAL
FIGHT WEEK CASEY. IT WAS AWESOME. IN THE SECOND ROUND WE’RE
GOING TO TALK SOME REAL BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
LEGENDS INCLUDING ROYLER GRACIE AND EDDIE BRAVO
AT THE SAME TIME, AWESOME STUFF THERE. YOU GO TO THE THIRD ROUND
WE’RE GOING TO HEAD OVER TO THE GOLDEN NUGGET WHERE
WE’RE TALKING SOME BIG CELEBRITIES WHO ARE OUT
THERE FOR INTERNATIONAL FIGHT WEEK. BUT RIGHT NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT
THE BIG FIGHT. THIS COULD BE THE BIGGEST
FIGHT CARD OF THE YEAR, LET’S GET TO THESE RESULTS. KICKING OFF THE CARD ON
FACEBOOK, YOU HAD RAFAELLO TRACTOR OLIVEIRA
FIGHTING FOR HIS JOB AND WINNING UNANIMOUS DECISION
OVER YOLSLANDY IZQUIERDO. YOU HAD SHANE ROLLER BEATING
JOHN ALESSIO UNANIMOUS DECISION. CONSTANTINOS PHILIPPOU LOOKING
GREAT AGAINST RIKI FUKUDA UNANIMOUS DECISION 30,
27 ACROSS THE BOARD. KHABIB NUMAGOMEDOV YOU HAD HIM
BEATING GLEISON TIBAU THAT WAS 30, 27 AS WELL. OF COURSE THE MAIN EVENT OF
THE FX CARD HAD MELVIN GUILLARD TAKING ON
FABRICIO CAMOES HE GETS THE BIG UNANIMOUS DECISION,
THE YOUNGEST ASSASSIN TRYING TO MOVE BACK INTO TITLE
CONTENTION AFTER FALLING DOWN A FEW RUNGS OF COURSE. (CASEY) YEAH, I’M IMPRESSED
WITH MELVIN FOR A COUPLE OF REASONS; ONE BEING THAT
HE’S REALLY GONE BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD WITH THE
BLACKZILIANS AND IMPROVED THAT GROUND GAME. YOU KNOW HE WAS MOUNTED THE
END OF ROUND ONE AND ESCAPED GOT OUT THERE, LANDED
A BIG SHOT TO CLOSE OUT ROUND ONE BIG AND THEN FROM
THERE HE DOMINATED COMPLETELY OVER CAMOES. IT WAS VERY IMPRESSIVE. (CYRUS) HE WAS VERY WAS, NOW
LET’S GO ON AND TAKE A LOOK AT THE POST FIGHT RIGHT HERE. (GUILLARD) I DON’T REALLY SEE
A THREAT IN THE LIGHTWEIGHT DIVISION AS FAR AS
STRIKING GOES. BUT THIS IS NOT JUST A
KICKBOXING MATCH SO, YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO BE READY
FOR THE WRESTLING AND JIU JITSU. I THINK EVEN AT THIS STAGE IN
MY CAREER MOST STRIKERS PROBABLY TRY TO
SUBMIT ME INSTEAD OF STRIKE WITH ME. (CYRUS) AND MOVING INTO THE
MAIN CARD IT WAS MIKE EASTON THE HULK TAKING ON IVAN
MENJIVAR OF COURSE THIS ONE IS GOING TO TALK ABOUT WHO’S
GOING TO BE FACING FABER OR BARAO THE BIG MAIN EVENT
FROM 149 AND MIKE EASTON LOOKED TOUGH IN THIS ONE. HE PROVED THAT HE IS READY FOR
THE BIG TIME, READY FOR THE TITLE. (CASEY) WELL THE HULK IS THE
SUPREME ATHLETE AT THAT, AT THAT WEIGHT CLASS. YOU KNOW HE CAN DO IT ALL,
LLOYD IRVIN PROSPECT, YOU KNOW THIS GUY FROM YEARS WAS
IN NAGA. HE HAS THAT WRESTING
BACKGROUND; I THINK HE CAN GO ALL THE WAY DUDE. I MEAN THIS IS THE GUY THAT
YOU KNOW HE IS BLAZING THROUGH THE COMPETITION WITH
EASE. (CYRUS) YOU HAD CHED MENDES
RUNNING THROUGH CODY MCKENZIE A BIG TKO OF COURSE,
A VERY LOPSIDED AFFAIR THERE AND THEN YOU’RE TALKING
ABOUT DEMIAN MAIA, DONG HYUN KIM, HE HAD THE BIG TKO
BY INJURY BUT NONE THE LESS YOU KNOW A MAIA WAS
REALLY IMPRESSED AND OF COURSE HE WANTS TO GET BACK IN
THE TITLE HUNT AS WELL AT 170 AND HE DID LOOK GOOD. (CASEY) YEAH, HE MADE THAT
DROP TO 170. HE’S LOOKED A LOT BETTER YOU
KNOW ESPECIALLY WITH THE BJJ SKILLS. HE’S GONE BACK TO THE DRAWING
BOARD. YOU KNOW HE HAD ROYLER GRACIE
YOU KNOW THERE AT THE WEIGH INS WITH HIM. HE ALSO HAD LEO VIEIRA IN HIS
CORNER. I MEAN THESE GUYS ARE VERY,
VERY HIGH CALIBER GROUND GUYS. HE’S SAYING HE’S GOING TO USE
HIS STRENGTHS AND HE’S GOING TO TAKE THIS 170 DIVISION. (CYRUS) ABSOLUTELY, LET’S SEE
WHAT HE HAD TO SAY AFTER THE FIGHT. (MAIA) MY TRAINING WAS ALL
TURNED TO GRAPPLING. SO WHEN I GOT THERE OF COURSE
YOU KNOW I WAS GOING TO DO GRAPPLING SOMETIMES LIKE IN
THAT TIME I DID MORE BOXING IN THE TRAINING SO THERE IS NO
SECRET YOU DO WHAT YOU’RE TRAINING. (CYRUS) THEN YOU HAD CUNG LE
TAKING ON PATRICK COTE WHO IS OF COURSE A LAST SECOND
REPLACEMENT FOR RICH FRANKLIN AND I’LL TELL YOU
WHAT CUNG LE LOOKED REAL GOOD. HE LOOKED REAL GRATEFUL TO BE
IN THE UFC, GET THAT BIG WIN SINCE HE LOST TO WANDERLEI
SILVA AND WHO KNOWS WHAT’S NEXT FOR CUNG LE. HE’S GETTING UP THERE. (CASEY) I KNOW WHAT’S NEXT
MAN, IF I WAS AT THAT POST FIGHT PRESS CONFERENCE,
DANA WHITE’S SAYING IT’S GOING TO BE CHINA. IT’S GOING TO BE THAT
INAUGURAL EVENT THERE IN CHINA AND HE WANTS CUNG LE TO
GET READY. CUNG LE SAYS HE WILL BE. (CYRUS) IT MAKES A LOT OF
SENSE DOESN’T IT? YOU’VE GOT TITO ORTIZ IN THE
CO-MAIN EVENT OF COURSE HIS BIG RETIREMENT FIGHT,
WHICH WAS HISTORIC, AND TITO DID LOSE THE DECISION. HOWEVER HE LOOKED GOOD DOING IT. (CASEY) VERY SPECIAL NIGHT FOR
TITO ORTIZ YOU KNOW HE WAS INDUCTED TO THE HALL OF
FAME EARLIER THAT AFTERNOON AT THE EXPO AND THEN YOU KNOW
REALLY JUST LAID IT ALL ON THE LINE. YOU KNOW HE WAS BLACK AND BLUE
AT THE END OF THE FIGHT AND IT WAS VERY SPECIAL FOR ME YOU
KNOW I GOT TO ASK A QUESTION THERE AS HE CLOSED
OUT AT THE POST FIGHT PRESS CONFERENCE SO A VERY
SPECIAL NIGHT FOR ME AS WELL. (CYRUS) LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT
THAT. (CASEY) TITO YOU KNOW YOU’RE
FACE HAS BEEN AROUND MMA AND REALLY POP CULTURE FOR A
NUMBER OF YEARS SINCE THE START. WHAT COMES AFTER THIS FOR YOU? YOU KNOW YOU SAY YOUR BODY IS
SORT OF YOU KNOW IS TAKING THE WEAR AND TEAR, WHAT’S NEXT
FOR YOU AS FAR AS YOU KNOW GETTING YOUR FACE OUT
THERE DO YOU HAVE ASPIRATION TO DO ANYTHING WITH
MEDIA YOU KNOW IN THE FUTURE? (TITO) DEDICATION COMES FIRST,
FAMILY TIME, YOU KNOW, I THINK ME AND THE BOYS IN
GENERAL ARE GOING TO GO ON VACATION ENJOYMENT. I BOUGHT A FISHING BOAT LAST
YEAR. I’M GOING TO DO A LOT OF
FISHING. I DON’T KNOW MAYBE SOME
COMMENTATING. I’M GOING TO CONTINUE TO BE
SUCCESSFUL THAT’S FOR SURE. I AIN’T DONE, THIS IS JUST A
DIFFERENT CHAPTER IN MY LIFE. (CYRUS) AND IN THE MAIN EVENT
THIS IS THE BIG FIGHT EVERYBODY WANTED TO SEE,
THE BIG REMATCH OF SILVA, SONNEN NUMBER TWO FOR
THE MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP AND I’LL TELL YOU
WHAT THE ATMOSPHERE WAS AMAZING SO MUCH
ELECTRICITY IN THE AIR. YOU HAD ALL THE BRAZILIANS
THERE. IT ALMOST SOUNDED LIKE A
SOCCER MATCH THERE IN THE ARENA. CASEY, LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS
FIGHT, ROUND FOR ROUND. (CASEY) WELL MAN SONNEN DID
COME TO WIN THIS FIGHT YOU KNOW HE GETS THE TAKE DOWN. HE GETS ON TOP OF SILVA EVEN,
MOUNTS THE CHAMPION. BUT MAN WHEN THE SPIDER COMES
TO FIGHT HE KNOWS HOW TO STAY COMPOSED AND HE DID TURN
IT AROUND IN ROUND TWO, GETS THE BIG TKO VICTORY AND
REALLY SOLIDIFIES HIMSELF AS THE POUND FOR POUND BEST OF
ALL TIME. (CYRUS) I HAVE TO AGREE WITH
YOU ON THAT ONE. THE KNEE CAME THROUGH IN THE
SECOND ROUND AND THAT’S WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE TALKING
ABOUT, DANA WHITE SAYS IT WAS LEGAL. KEITH KIZER IS A LITTLE
WORRIED ABOUT IT FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS. YOU KIND OF HAD A FEW ISSUES
WITH SILVA THIS WEEKEND. (CASEY) WELL THE DECISION
STANDS YOU KNOW IT’S JUST ANYTIME YOU’RE DEALING
WITH A KNEE LIKE THAT TO A DOWNED OPPONENT YOU KNOW IT
IS LEGAL TO HIT THE CHEST BUT YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT THAT
FIGHTER IS GOING TO DO. IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO INTENTION. SO YOU KNOW IF SONNEN WOULD
HAVE RAISED UP A LITTLE BIT OR TILTED FROM SIDE TO SIDE
THAT KNEE COULD HAVE LANDED IN HIS FACE AND THAT COULD
HAVE ENDED IN A NO CONTEST OR DISQUALIFICATION. YOU KNOW BUT REALLY KIZER WAS
A LITTLE MORE AGGRAVATED WITH SILVA ALL IN ALL WITH THE
SHOULDER BUMP AT THE WEIGH INS. YOU KNOW WITH THE GREASING
ISSUE, SO YOU KNOW IT’S JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS YOU
KNOW WHERE YOU KNOW YOU’VE REALLY GOT TO WATCH THE
ATHLETIC COMMISSION YOU KNOW THEY, YOU GET UNDER THEIR
SKIN IT COULD BE PROBLEMS. (CYRUS) NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. WELL IT WAS A GREAT FIGHT AND
I’M JUST GLAD WE COULD BE THERE FOR THAT ONE. COMING UP NEXT ROUND WE’RE
GOING TO THE HEART ATTACK GRILL IN DOWNTOWN LAS
VEGAS WHERE WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT ALL THESE GREAT
INTERVIEWS WE’VE GOT WITH SOME BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
LEGENDS INCLUDING ROYLER GRACIE AND BRAVO IN THE
THIRD ROUND COMING UP A LITTLE BIT LATER WE’RE TALKING
SOME CELEBRITIES THERE AT THE GOLDEN NUGGET ON FREMONT
STREET. GET YOUR GUARD UP RIGHT NOW;
IT’S TIME FOR YOUR MMA INSIDE THE CAGE HIT PARADE BABY. (FIGHT SOUNDS AND CROWD NOISES) [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [COMMERCIALS] (VOICEOVER) MMA INSIDE THE
CAGE BROUGHT TO YOU BY… (CASEY) SO LET ME ASK YOU
THIS, ARE YOU GOING TO, ARE WE GOING TO SEE KING MO LAWAL
AS THE TNA CHAMPION FIRST OR ARE WE GOING TO SEE HIM AS
A BELLATOR CHAMPION OR IS IT GOING TO BE HAND IN HAND
TNA, BELLATOR CHAMPION KING MO LAWAL RULING THE WORLD? (KING MO) WELL MY GOAL IS TO
BE A ONE MAN TAG TEAM. (CASEY) OKAY (KING MO) I WANT
TO HAVE THE TNA BELT AND I WANT TO HAVE THE BELLATOR
BELT, YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING? SO THAT’S A ONE MAN TAG TEAM. I WANT TO WALK TO THE RING AND
THE CAGE WITH BOTH BELTS, THAT’S MY GOAL. WE’RE BACK ROUND NUMBER TWO
MMA INSIDE THE CAGE LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS WE’RE DOWNTOWN
FREMONT STREET AND WE’RE HERE AT THE HEART ATTACK
GRILL, HOME OF THE MOST DELICIOUS BUT OF COURSE
UNHEALTHY BURGERS IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD CASEY. (CASEY) BROTHER I’M GETTING
READY TO HAVE MY FIRST SINGLE BYPASS EVER AND YOU
KNOW WHAT I’M NOT EVEN NERVOUS ABOUT IT. I’M ACTUALLY EXCITED. (CYRUS) IT’S CAUSE YOU’RE NOT
GOING UNDER THE KNIFE. YOU’RE ABOUT TO GET A FORK AND
KNIFE AND DIG INTO ONE OF THESE AWESOME BURGERS. THAT’S RIGHT, SPEAKING OF
AWESOME, WE GOT SOME AMAZING BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
LEGENDS WHILE WE’RE HERE FOR THE INTERNATIONAL FIGHT
WEEKEND. (CASEY) THAT’S RIGHT, WE’VE
GOT SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
RIGHT HERE AT UFC 148 INCLUDING ROYLER AND EDDIE
BRAVO IN THE SAME LOCATION AT THE SAME TIME. (CYRUS) CHECK OUT THIS GREAT
FOOTAGE. (CASEY) I’M RIGHT HERE WITH
BRIAN CIMINS, THIS IS THE MAN BEHIND GRAPPLERS QUEST
WHICH IS SO MUCH APART OF THIS FAN EXPO, TALK ABOUT
WHAT’S GOING ON TODAY. {BRIAN) WE HAD A WONDERFUL, WE
HAD TWO FOREMAN TOURNAMENTS. WE HAD JUST SOME AMAZING, WE
DID A FIRST, FIRST NEW FORMAT OF GRAPPLERS QUEST
WHICH WAS THE TEN MINUTE SUBMISSION ONLY ROUND,
FOLLOWED BY THE FIVE MINUTE OVERTIME. I WANTED TO SEE YOU HOW IT
WOULD TRANSITION CHANGES THE SPORT. IT’S TRANSCENDING. IT’S EXPONENTIAL GROWTH FROM
HERE FROM THAT. I’M DOING WHAT DANA SAID, SET
OUT TO DO WHEN THEY ULTIMATELY CONQUEST AND
ACQUIRED PRIDE AND THEY KNEW THEY WERE GOING TO DO IT. I KNOW THAT WITH HEART, FIRST
OF ALL THE RELATIONSHIPS I’VE BUILT LIKE ABU DHABI,
LIKE THEY’RE YOU KNOW THEY GIVE A LOT OF MONEY AWAY
BUT THEY COULD GIVE A LOT MORE. THEY’RE A LOT, THEY’RE
BILLIONAIRES BRO, LIKE LISTEN GIVE MORE MONEY TO
THESE GUYS. YOU KNOW SCRAPE THE BOTTOM OF
THE OIL BARREL, EXCUSE MY REFERENCE BUT SCRAPE THE
BOTTOM OF THAT, COME UP AND WE’RE LIKE FOUR OR FIVE
DOLLARS A BARREL YOU CAN GIVE THESE GUYS A HUNDRED
THOUSANDS DOLLARS PER WEIGHT CLASS. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT IT
ANYMORE, WHICH IS VERY OBVIOUS IN A LOT OF WAYS; THE
MATS IN THE LAST ABU DHABI WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WERE
LIKE 15 FEET BY 15 FEET. YOU HAD FREAKIN’ YOU KNOW THE
BEST IN THE WORLD, GRAPPLIN’ ON CEMENT. (CASEY) ALL RIGHT CASEY
OXENDINE HERE WITH VINNY MAGALHAES HERE AT THE
UFC EXPO. MAN WHAT’S GOING ON THE LAST
TIME WE SAW YOU, YOU WERE THROWING AWAY THE BIG M-1
GLOBAL BELT, YOU KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING TODAY WITH
VINNY MAGALHAES? (VINNY) YOU KNOW THE BELT
ITSELF, I STILL HAVE THE BELT. I DON’T HAVE THE TITLE
ANYMORE, ACTUALLY THE DAY THAT I PUT THE BELT OUT FOR
SALE, WAS THE DAY THAT THEY STRIPED THE TITLE. THEY JUST DECIDED THAT JUST
NOT TO HAVE A CHAMPION ANYMORE AND THAT TECHNICALLY I
WASN’T UNDER CONTRACT. I DIDN’T HAVE LIKE FIGHTING
OBLIGATIONS WITH THEM. I DIDN’T HAVE TO FIGHT FOR THEM. BUT THAT WAS WHEN I WAS IN A
MATCH UP PERIOD. SO LIKE YOU KNOW TECHNICALLY I
COULD HAVE STILL BEEN MORE FIGHTING IF I DECIDED TO
SHOW LIKE ANY OFFER AND IF THEY COULD HAVE COVERED
THAT OFFER I WOULD HAVE STILL LIKED ANYMORE FIGHTER
AND I COULD POSSIBLY STILL BEEN THE CHAMPIONSHIP
AND THEY JUST DECIDED TO TAKE THE TITLE AWAY. (CASEY) I’M HERE WITH LEO
VIEIRO POSSIBLY THE MOST DYNAMIC GRAPPLER THAT HAS
EVER LIVED. HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED
MAKING A SWITCH AND GOING INTO MIXED MARTIAL ARTS
YOURSELF? (LEO) LIKE I SAW A LOT OF
STUDENTS COME TRAINING AND GO, OF COURSE I THINK ABOUT IT
SO MUCH. (CASEY) I’M HERE WITH MASTER
LLOYD IRVIN. (LLOYD) WELL THE DEVELOPMENT
OF THE TEAM IS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE EVERYTHING
STARTS FROM THE KIDS UP AND ALTHOUGH WE FIGHT MMA, WE
GOT GUYS DOING MUAY THAI, YOU KNOW FOR FIGHTING
PROFESSIONAL. WE STILL COME FROM THE MARTIAL
ARTS ASPECTS. A LOT OF THE NEW FIGHTERS, MMA
FIGHTERS IS LIKE WRESTLERS GOING TO MMA GYMS TO
FIGHT MMA. THERE’S NO, THE MARTIAL ARTS
ASPECT IS GONE AWAY AND I SAY WELL WITH OUR SCHOOL WE
PUT YOU KNOW MARTIAL ARTS FIRST. (CASEY) I’M HERE WITH THE ONE
AND ONLY ROYLER GRACIE, PERHAPS THE GREATEST
MAT LEGEND OF ALL TIME. ARE YOU STILL LOOKING TO
POSSIBLY COME YOU KNOW OUT OF RETIREMENT AND COMPETE
AGAIN AT SOME POINT AND IF SO WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN
FACING OFF AGAINST EDDIE BRAVO? (GRACIE) I’M NOT LOOKING FOR
NO, TO BE FACING NOBODY, NO, BUT YEAH, IF SOMEONE KNOCK
ON MY DOOR I’M READY. YOU KNOW I’M TRAINING EVERY DAY. THAT’S WHAT I DO FOR MY WHOLE
LIFE. YOU KNOW BUT MAKE SURE HE
COMES WITH SOMEONE REAL; DON’T BE WITH FAKE STUFF YOU
KNOW. SAY HEY LET’S GO FIGHT, YEAH I
LOVE TO SEE A FIGHT, WELL I LOVE TOO, BUT YOU KNOW LET’S
TALK. (CASEY) I’M HERE WITH THE ONE
AND ONLY EDDIE BRAVO, JIU JITSU LEGEND RIGHT HERE AT
UFC. (EDDIE) WITH IRAQIAN (SHARON)
SHARON SOLOMON, (EDDIE) SHARON SOLOMON, SHE WAS AROUND
IN BAGHDAD WHEN THEY WERE DROPPING BOMBS. SHE GOT OUT SAFELY. SHE’S HERE THANK GOD, HER
FAMILIES OKAY, EVERYTHING’S FINE. SHE’S HERE WITH UFC ENJOYING
IT, SELLING SOME HARLEY DAVIDSON MOTORCYCLES. (CASEY) IS THERE EVER A
POSSIBILITY WE MIGHT SEE ROYLER, EDDIE BRAVO PART
TWO? (EDDIE) WELL IT WAS ON. IT WAS ON LIKE DONKEY KONG HE
AGREED TO IT. I AGREED TO IT, THAT, THIS IS
WHAT I WANTED FOREVER, FOR YEARS. HE AGREED TO IT. HE DID INTERVIEWS. HE DID INTERVIEWS FOR TOM
MAGAZINE FOR GRACIE MAGAZINE, TALKED A LOT OF ****
AND IT WAS ON LIKE DONKEY KONG AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN
HE DECIDED TO ASK FOR 50,000 DOLLARS MORE. NOBODY’S EVER NEGOTIATED WITH
THE SHEIK AND THAT WAS HIS WAY OF BACKING OUT SO, ROYLER
BACKED OUT. I WAS DOWN BUT UNFORTUNATELY
HE WASN’T. (CYRUS) WELL I’LL TELL YOU
WHAT CASEY THERE IS NO LOVE LOSS BETWEEN EDDIE BRAVO
AND ROYLER GRACIE. (CASEY) ABSOLUTELY NOT, YOU
KNOW THE SAGA THAT BEGAN NEARLY A DECADE AGO MAY
HAVE JUST COME TO A FEVERISH PITCH RIGHT HERE ON
MMA INSIDE THE CAGE. (CYRUS) NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. I’LL TELL YOU WHAT WE HAVE
SOME GREAT CELEBRITY INTERVIEWS AS WELL
AS OUR MAIN EVENT OF THE WEEK COMING UP HERE IN THE
THIRD ROUND. (CASEY) THAT’S RIGHT, BUT YOU
KNOW RIGHT NOW I’VE GOT TO GET BACK TO THIS HEART ATTACK
WAITING ON ME OVER HERE AT THE TABLE. (CYRUS) KEEP IT RIGHT HERE ON
MMA INSIDE THE CAGE. [MUSIC] [COMMERCIALS] (VOICEOVER) MMA INSIDE THE
CAGE BROUGHT TO YOU BY… (CYRUS) NOW THIS ONE, I GOT TO
ASK YOU, THIRD AND FINAL QUESTION, I WENT TO IOWA
CENTRAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE, CAIN VELASQUEZ DID,

SAYING, WHAT IS IT ABOUT IOWA CENTRAL THAT BREEDS
GREATNESS IS WHAT I WANT TO KNOW? (JON) WELL (CYRUS) WAS IT THE
AMAZING BAR SCENE IN FORT DODGE IOWA, WHAT IS
(laughter) (JON) THE DIRTY DODGE MAN, (CYRUS) THE
DIRTY DOGE, (JON) I USED TO HAVE A GOOD TIME BACK THEN. I’LL TELL YOU WHAT. DUDE IT’S JUST A GREAT PROGRAM. IT’S A HARD NOSE WRESTLING
PROGRAM. I REMEMBER THE WRESTLING COACH
USED TO PUT US ALL ON THIS BUS AND MAKE US JOG BACK TO
CAMPUS, HALF OF US MISSED DINNER AND THINGS LIKE
THAT YOU KNOW. I JUST KNOW A REAL TOUGH HARD
NOSE STUFF YOU KNOW. SO YOU KNOW IT WAS JUST A GOOD
PROGRAM MAN, GOOD PROGRAM, HARD NOSED KIDS. (CYRUS) NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. HERE HE IS THIS IS JON JONES. (CYRUS) WELCOME BACK TO THE
PROGRAM MMA INSIDE THE CAGE, LIVE FROM LOS VEGAS
RIGHT HERE AT THE GOLDEN NUGGET DOWN HERE ON
FREMONT STREET AND WOW I’LL TELL YOU WHAT CASEY I’VE
NEVER THOUGHT WE’D SEE SO MANY CELEBRITIES OUT HERE. BUT WE GOT SOME REALLY
INTERESTING INTERVIEWS HERE. WE STARTED OFF WITH PETE ROSE
AS SOON AS WE GOT THERE. THEN YOU HOOKED UP WITH A ROCK
STAR. (CASEY) AW, YOU’RE TALKING
ABOUT ZOLTAN BROTHER. THE MAN FROM FIVE FINGER DEATH
PUNCH. THE GUYS BEEN ON THE MAT, THE
JIU JITSU MATS FOR YEARS. ALSO A JUDO BLACK BELT AND HE
HAD A LOT TO TALK ABOUT. (CYRUS) THEN YOU TALK ABOUT A
BIG FAN OF THE SPORT AND AN AWESOME STAND UP COMEDIAN
WE’RE TALKING ABOUT JIM NORTON. CHECK OUT THESE GREAT
INTERVIEWS THAT WE SCORED RIGHT THERE AT UFC 148. (CYRUS) I’M HERE IN LOVELY LAS
VEGAS WE’RE AT THE SHOPS IN MANDALAY BAY AND WE’RE ON
OUR WAY TO THE UFC EXPO AND WE JUST HAPPENED TO SEE ONE OF
THE BIGGEST LEGENDS IN BASEBALL HISTORY, PETE ROSE. WELL YOU KNOW ONE INCIDENT
THAT HAPPEN IN, IN THE UFC WITH CHAEL SONNEN, HE KIND
OF HAD A THING WITH PERFORMANCE ENHANCING
DRUGS AND THAT’S OBVIOUS, WELL OBVIOUSLY THERE’S BEEN
THAT ISSUE VERY BIG IN BASEBALL, WHAT’S YOUR TAKE
ON THAT WITH THE EXPLOSION OF IT OF COURSE, (PETE)
YOU’RE TAKING TO THE WRONG GUY BECAUSE I MADE MY MISTAKES
AND WE’LL LET IT GO AT THAT. I DON’T KNOW A DAMN THING
ABOUT STEROIDS OR ENHANCEMENT DRUGS. I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT IT. SO IF I START COMMENTING ON IT
I’D HAVE A CHANCE OF STICKING MY FOOT IN MY MOUTH. IF THEY DID IT AND THEY GOT
CAUGHT THEY SHOULD BE PENALIZED. I THINK THE GUY YOU’RE TALKING
ABOUT LOST HIS CHAMPIONSHIP BECAUSE OF THAT. SO YOU KNOW THERE’S
RESTRICTIONS AND ABIDE BY THE RULES AND IF YOU DON’T YOU
END UP LIKE ME GETTING SUSPENDED. I’VE BEEN SUSPENDED 22 YEARS. SO, MY ADVICE TO THE YOUNG
PEOPLE WATCHING YOUR INTERVIEW DON’T BREAK THE
RULES CAUSE THEY’LL CATCH YOU. (CASEY) I’M RIGHT HERE WITH
ZOLTAN BATHROY, THE RHYTHM GUITARIST FOR THE FIVE
FINGER DEATH PUNCH, MAN YOU PERFORMED HERE AT THE
MANDALAY BAY LAST NIGHT AND YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UFC
FAN EXPO. YOU JUST GOT DONE WATCHING
BILL THE GRILL COOPER RIGHT OUT THERE AT THE
GRAPPLER’S QUEST. TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT
YOU’RE DOING HERE AND YOU’RE CONNECTION WITH
GRAPPLING AS A WHOLE. (ZOLTAN) WELL TECHNICALLY,
ACTUALLY I WAS GOING TO FIGHT TODAY. BUT BASICALLY I BROKE MY HAND
A LITTLE BIT A TIME AGO AND DIDN’T QUITE HEAL
PERFECTLY YET. SO I STILL FEEL IT AND YOU
KNOW ABOUT A WEEK AWAY FROM THE BIG MAJOR YOU KNOW US
TOUR AND MY WHOLE, THE BAND MEMBERS, THE MANAGEMENT,
EVERYBODY’S LIKE UHH-HUH YOU KNOW SO, MY SECURITY GUYS
WALKING WITH ME SO, TO WATCH THAT I DON’T WEIGH IN. (LAUGHTER) SOME HOW THIS BAND
THING IS WORKING OUT. THAT WAS THE GRAND SCHEME WAS
REALLY, I DIDN’T REALLY WANT TO BE THE BAND YOU KNOW
IT WAS JUST THAT WAS A GRAND SCHEME. (CASEY) IT WAS FOR JIU JITSU
CONNECTIONS. (ZOLTAN) IT WAS PURELY FOR
GETTING JIU JITSU ACTION SO NOW I CAN SNEAK INTO
ACADEMY’S. (CYRUS) HERE I’M TALKING TO
JIM NORTON, STAND UP COMEDIAN, A BIG PART OF THE OF
THE OPIE AND ANTHONY SHOW AND A HUGE MIXED MARTIAL ARTS
FAN. WAS IT JUST A GIVEN THAT YOU
HAD TO BE HERE FOR THIS FIGHT SILVA VERSUS SONNEN? (JIM) YEAH, IT’S ALWAYS HARD
TO GET OFF ON THE WEEKEND, BUT THIS ONE I KNEW MONTHS IN
ADVANCE AND I’M LIKE THIS ONE I KNEW URIAH WAS SUPPOSE
TO BE ON THE CO-MAIN EVENT. I HAD TO COME TO THIS ONE. (CYRUS) SO OUT OF ALL OF THESE
MOVES THAT YOU’VE TAKEN AND YOU TOOK THE STRIKE FROM
JONES, WHAT’S BEEN THE WORSE? (JIM) BY FAR THAT KICK TO MY
THIGH. THE PUNCHES REALLY HURT BUT
I’M GOING TO TAKE THEM. FEDOR PUT ME IN A WEIRD ARM
ONE WHERE HE JUST KIND OF FLEXED UP AND WRAPPED
AROUND MY ARM, WHICH REALLY HURT, BUT THAT WAS A
BEARABLE PAIN. BROCK DOING THE HEEL HOOK ON
ME HURT. THE LEG LOCK HURTS A LOT MORE
THAN ANYTHING. (CYRUS) SO FITTING BECAUSE
THAT’S WHAT HE TAPPED TOO. (LAUGHTER) (JIM) BUT HE DID A
VERY GENTLE. I MEAN THESE GUYS THEY’RE NOT
BULLY’S. SILVA LIKE I’VE HAD ANDERSON
SILVA KICK ME AND WHAT HURT ABOUT THAT IS HE DID IT
LIGHTLY, LIKE HE WAS GIVING ME A BABY KICK CAUSE HE KNOWS. BUT WAS THE HEAD JARRING I
WASN’T READY FOR LIKE THE HEAD, THE HEAD TO MOVE
LIKE THAT. SO I HAD A HEADACHE FOR TWO
HOURS AFTER. I’M LIKE THE FACT THAT HE JUST
KICKED ME IN THE ARM LIGHTLY AND I HAD A HEADACHE
THAT HE’S A DANGEROUS GUY. (CYRUS) WELL THOSE WERE
AWESOME INTERVIEWS MAN. YOU JUST NEVER KNOW WHO YOU’RE

  1. Dude… quit cutting your damn facial hair like that. I told myself I wouldn't watch another video of yours with your fucking facial hair like that… so I fastforwarded to Eddie JUST THIS ONE TIME.

    I'm serious this time. Fucking gross, hurts my brain that you think that is cool.

  2. @rjambi If you don't like the beard then watch episode 101 of MMA: Inside the cage and do something about it.

  3. we dont need to see interviews, advertising, training, history or hype

    we just need to see the fight from start to finish, nothing else
