HERE, WELCOME TO MMA INSIDE THE CAGE. THIS WEEK WE’LL SEE WHAT WENT
DOWN AT EFC AFRICA 15, LAST WEEK WE HAVE OUR FIRST
TOP FIVE OF SEASON THREE AND YOUR CLIP OF THE WEEK
COMPETITION STARTS THIS WEEK. I’M YOUR HOST CYRUS FEES, NEXT
TO ME HE DIDN’T QUITE MAKE THE WATER POLO TEAM FOR THE
OLYMPICS THIS YEAR, CASEY OXENDINE. (CASEY) I DON’T KNOW ABOUT
THAT, WHAT I KNOW ABOUT IS MARCO POLO. (CYRUS) YEAH, (CASEY) THE
SPORT IS CALLED OLYMPIC BATTLESHIP AKA AND IT
GOES LIKE THIS, THERE’S ONE MAN IN THE CENTER OF THE
POOL (CYRUS) OKAY (CASEY) HIS EYES ARE CLOSED AND HE IS
SURROUNDED BY THE REST OF THE COMPETITORS OUTSIDE OF THE
POOL. THE BUZZER SOUNDS EVERYBODY
JUMPS IN CANNON BALL STYLE. IF THE MAN IN THE CENTER
DROWNS, HE’S OUT. HE LOSES THAT’S IT. (CYRUS) WOW, OLYMPIC BATTLESHIP. (CASEY) YES (CYRUS) JUST LIKE
THAT, WELL LET’S GET THIS ROUND. IT’S TIME FOR THIS WEEK’S NEWS
FLURRY. WELL THE LADIES LAY CLAIM ON
THE CAGE ONCE AGAIN IN KANSAS CITY AS INVICTA FC 2
WENT DOWN AT MEMORIAL HALL. THEY CERTAINLY AMPED THIS SHOW
UP WITH THE ADDITION OF SOME VERY WELL KNOWN NAMES IN
THE SPORT. SOME NOTABLE WINS INCLUDED
AMANDA NUNES, SARAH D’ALELIO, LIZ CARMOUCHE, OVER
A VERY GAME CAITLIN YOUNG, ALEXIS DAVIS WITH
ANOTHER BIG WIN AND OF COURSE THE MAIN EVENT SARA
MCMANN STAYING UNDEFEATED BY OUTPOINTING THE SUPER TOUGH
SHAYNE BASZLER. GOOD FIGHT TOO. (CASEY) INCREDIBLE CARD ALL
THE WAY AROUND, TOP WOMEN IN THE WORLD MINUS RONDA
ROUSEY AND THE CHAMPIONSHIP COMMITTEE UP
THERE IN STRIKEFORCE BUT DEFIANTLY AN INCREDIBLE
MAIN EVENT OF COURSE SARA MCMANN POISED AS POSSIBLE
THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR RONDA ROUSEY EVEN THOUGH
SHE ISN’T IN STRIKEFORCE. BUT BASZLER WAS NOT HAVING IT. SHE CAME CLOSE TO WINNING. AT THE END IT WAS VERY, VERY
CLOSE. (CYRUS) LANDED A LOT OF STRIKES. (CASEY) YEAH, SHE CAME ON
VERY, VERY STRONG BUT MCMANN ABLE TO TAKE IT. SHE MOVES ON BIG EVENT AND BIG
FIGHT. (CYRUS) NO DOUBT ABOUT IT
INVICTAFC.COM FOR INFORMATION ON THEIR NEXT
CARD, THOSE MATCHUPS ARE ALREADY BEING ANNOUNCED. WELL IT’S A MATCH MADE IN
HEAVEN AS TWO OF OUR FAVORITE COMPANIES HAVE LINKED
UP. FIGHT NOW TV JUST ANNOUNCED
LAST WEEK THAT THEY HAVE SIGNED AN EXCLUSIVE DEAL
WITH EFC AFRICA. NOW EFC AFRICA JOINS VERY
DISTINGUISHED COMPANY WITH THE RFA, KING OF THE CAGE, AND
RING OF FIRE ON FIGHT NOW TV. PERSONALLY I THINK IT’S A
GREAT MOVE FOR BOTH SIDES. (CASEY) NOT ENOUGH CAN BE SAID
ABOUT EFC AFRICA, FIRST OF ALL. OF COURSE THEY WON OUR
INTERNATIONAL FIGHT PROMOTION OF THE YEAR (CYRUS)
THEY DID. (CASEY) ON LAST YEARS EPISODE,
YEAR END EPISODE AND REALLY THE FIGHT NOW NETWORK A
LOT OF PEOPLE MAY NOT HAVE SEEN IT YET. BUT EVERYBODY’S GOING TO KNOW
FIGHT NOW NETWORK BY THE END OF THE YEAR AND WE REALLY
CAN’T TALK ABOUT A WHOLE LOT OF WHAT’S GOING ON BUT
IT’S GOING TO BE BIG THINGS. (CYRUS) IT’S GOING TO BE THERE
NOW. WE’RE GOING TO HAVE SOME EFC
FOOTAGE COMING UP IN THE THIRD ROUND, A BIG MAIN EVENT,
FIGHTNOW DOT COM, THAT’S WHERE YOU CAN GO TO FIND OUT
HOW TO GET FIGHT NOW IN YOUR LIVING ROOM. BUT LET’S CUT THE FLURRY’S
SHORT; LET’S GET TO THE CLIPS OUR DIRTY DOZEN IF YOU
WILL. THIS WEEK STARTS OUR CLIP OF

MMA, BAMF FIGHT GEAR, AND FIGHT CHIX. NOW WE HAVE OUR FIRST TOP FIVE
OF THE SEASON COMING UP AFTER THE BREAK, LET’S GET TO
OUR FIRST FOUR FINALISTS. [FIGHT SOUNDS] [MUSIC] [COMMERCIALS] (VOICEOVER) MMA ITC IS BROUGHT
TO YOU BY… (CYRUS) AND WE’RE BACK SEASON
THREE PREMIERE, CYRUS FEES ALONGSIDE CASEY OXENDINE. WE HAVE A KILLER MAIN EVENT
FROM EFC AFRICA STILL TO COME. BUT CASEY IN ANY SPORT SOME OF
THE BEST PLAYERS IN THE GAME NEVER QUITE GET TO THE
MOUNTAIN TOP. IN BASKETBALL, YOU CAN TALK
ABOUT KARL MALONE, CHARLES BARKLEY, (CASEY) YEAH
AND I’M TALKING DON MATTINGLY, AND ERNIE BANKS
WITH BASEBALL. (CYRUS) THEN IN THE NFL YOU’RE
TALKING ABOUT THE WHOLE 90’S BUFFALO BILLS TEAM. THEY JUST COULDN’T QUITE GET
THAT TITLE. WE’VE COMPILED A LIST OF
FIGHTERS THAT BECAME LEGENDS OF THE SPORT BUT
RETIRED WITHOUT EVER WINNING A TITLE OR WINNING ONE OF
THOSE BIG PRIDE OR UFC TOURNAMENTS EARLY ON. SO HERE’S YOUR TOP FIVE
FIGHTERS THAT NEVER BECAME CHAMPION, AT NUMBER
FIVE, BIG DADDY, GARY GOODRIDGE. (CASEY) OF COURSE A LEGEND IN
THE SPORT, VERY, VERY SCARY INDIVIDUAL WHEN HE MADE
HIS ENTRANCE INTO THE UFC AS THE KUK SOOL WON MASTER, OF
COURSE MOVES ON INTO PRIDE, FIGHTS JUST ABOUT EVERY
STAR OF THE 2000’S AND LATE 90’S. MAN THIS GUY WAS SOMETHING ELSE. BUT JUST FELL SHORT OF THAT
WORLD TITLE STATUS. (CYRUS) AT NUMBER FOUR YOU’RE
TALKING ABOUT THE TEXAS CRAZY HORSE, HEATH HERRING. (CASEY) CONSIDERED TO BE ONE
OF THE GREATEST PROSPECTS IN PRIDE FIGHTING
CHAMPIONSHIPS UPON HIS ENTRANCE OF COURSE BEATING
TOM ERIKSON, BEATING THE NEAR INVINCIBLE MARK KERR AND
THEN GOES ON TO FIGHT MINOTAURO NOGUEIRA IN
ONE OF THE GREATEST FIGHTS IN PRIDE HISTORY, FELL SHORT
OF THE TITLE. BUT MAN ESTABLISHED HIMSELF AS
A MAJOR, MAJOR PLAYER FOR A LONG TIME. (CYRUS) NO DOUBT ABOUT IT,
NUMBER THREE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE RECENTLY
RETIRED KEN-FLO, KENNY FLORIAN. (CASEY) GRAPPLING PHENOM GOES
ON TO FIGHT IN THE VERY FIRST SEASON OF THE ULTIMATE
FIGHTER OF COURSE FELL SHORT A LITTLE UNDERSIZED THERE, THE
170 DIVISION, WENT ON TO DO GREAT THINGS AT 155, AND
145 FIGHTING AGAINST B.J. PENN, THE LIKES OF JOSE ALDO,
NEVER ATTAINED THAT TITLE BUT MAN, DID SO MUCH AND NOW
HE’S STILL THERE. YOU STILL SEE HIS FACE OUT
THERE AS A BROADCASTER. (CYRUS) HE’S A GREAT ANALYST. AT NUMBER TWO; WE’RE TALKING
ABOUT IGOR VOVCHANCHYN, (CASEY) THE FIRST
INCANTATION OF THE RUSSIAN NIGHTMARE OF MIXED
MARTIAL ARTS. HUGE OVER HAND RIGHT, ONE OF
THE SCARIEST FIGHTERS OF ALL TIME DID FALL SHORT OF THE
WORLD TITLE. BUT MAN THIS IS A FACE THAT WE
WILL NEVER FORGET. (CYRUS) NO DOUBT ABOUT IT AND
AT NUMBER ONE, IT’S THE KING OF THE FIGHT OF THE
NIGHT, CHRIS LYTLE. (CASEY) THIS GUY IS DEFIANTLY
THE GREATEST FIGHTER THAT NEVER WAS. I MEAN WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT
A GUY MADE IT ALL THE WAY TO THE UFC COMEBACK INTO THE
FINALS THERE WITH MATT SERRA, WHO KNOWS IF HE’D BEAT
MATT, WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED THERE WITH GSP. MATT OF COURSE WENT ON TO WIN
THE WORLD TITLE RIGHT AFTER THAT. LYTLE DID SO MANY THINGS FOR
THE SPORT. FOUGHT WARS AND WAS ALWAYS
GAME IN EVERY PERFORMANCE, MAD RESPECT FOR THIS GUY. HE IS THE GREATEST, (CYRUS)
FIGHTER THAT NEVER WON A TITLE. EFC AFRICA 15 RECAP AND A BIG
MAIN EVENT COMING UP AFTER THE BREAK BUT RIGHT NOW LET’S
SEE THE NEXT FOUR FINALISTS FOR CLIP OF THE WEEK. [FIGHT SOUNDS] [MUSIC] [COMMERCIALS] [MUSIC] (VOICEOVER) MMA ITC IS BROUGHT
TO YOU BY… (CYRUS) WELL IT’S THIRD ROUND
ACTION TIME TO IMPRESS THE JUDGES, YOU HEARD IT
EARLIER IN OUR NEWS FLURRY, EFC AFRICA OFFICIALLY
SYNDICATED WITH FIGHT NOW TV AND EFC AFRICA 15 WAS THE
FIRST EVENT ON THE NETWORK, MADE A GREAT FIRST
IMPRESSION. JUST A FEW OF THE FIGHTS THAT
STOOD OUT, YOU’VE GOT TO GIVE PROPS TO DONAVIN, THE
YOUNG ASSASSIN HAWKEY FOR, (CASEY) HUNTER MMA GUYS. (CYRUS) BIG GUILLOTINE WIN,
YOU GOT THAT RIGHT. BOYD ALLEN AS ONE OF THE
HUNTER MMA TEAM GETTING THE W. LEON MYNHARDT, FRANCOIS KABULU
WHO HAD THAT EPIC FIGHT FROM EFC AFRICA 9. WE LOVED THAT FIGHT. THEY BOTH GOT IMPRESSIVE WINS
AND THEN GARETH MCCLELLAN, THE SOLDIER BOY TRYING TO GET
BACK IN THE TITLE HUNT WITH A VERY DECISIVE VICTORY. (CASEY) HE WANTS ANOTHER SHOT
AT THE PIT-BULL FOR SURE. MCCLELLAN IS A GUY THAT IS
HUGE FAN FAVORITE. HE’S READY TO ROCK N ROLL AND
I’M ANXIOUS TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. (CYRUS) OH, IT’S GOING TO BE
GREAT MAN A HUGE MIDDLE WEIGHT, AND THEN
FINALLY THE MAIN EVENT WAS A GREAT ONE, AS JP JOUBERT
FINALLY GETS HIS SHOT AT THE LIGHT HEAVY WEIGHT CHAMP
NORMAN WESSELS. NOW WE’VE SEEN JOUBERT’S POWER
BEFORE. THIS ONE WAS NASTY AS HE
POUNDS OUT WESSELS IN ROUND NUMBER TWO. WE HAVE A NEW CHAMP, CASEY. (CASEY) YEAH, A CHAMP IN TOWN,
DEFIANTLY AND THIS GUY DOES HAVE SOME POWER SMASHING
MACHINE IS WHAT HE IS AND I’M ANXIOUS TO SEE HOW THIS
CHAMPION CARRIES THE BANNER IN EFC. (CYRUS) WELL THEY CALL HIM THE
BULL FOR A REASON. WELL WE DIDN’T INCLUDE THE
FIGHT OF THE NIGHT BECAUSE WE WANT YOU TO SEE THAT FOR
YOUR SELF. THERE’S MARTIN BAN STADEN
