MMA: Inside the Cage #123- “RUFF and Rowdy”


(MUSIC) (MUSIC) MMA ITC BROUGHT TO YOU BY… (CYRUS) WELCOME TO MMA INSIDE
THE CAGE, I’M YOUR HOST CYRUS FEES STANDING NEXT TO ME
HE’S GOT THE GLASSES ON. HE’S GETTING A LITTLE STUDIOUS
OUT HERE, THE ALBERT EINSTEIN OF MMA, MISTER CASEY
OXENDINE. (CASEY) WELL I’M JUST TRYING
TO WRAP MY MIND AROUND THIS WHOLE WORLD CLOCK THING
WE’VE GOT GOING. (CYRUS) OKAY (CASEY) OKAY SO
WE’RE HERE IN THE STUDIO NOW. WE ARE IN AUSTRALIA AT AFC 4
TOMORROW, WHICH IS ALSO TODAY? (CYRUS) SO WHAT ARE YOU TRYING
TO SAY? (CASEY) WELL IT DEFIES THE
SPACE TIME CONTINUUM. WE’RE IN TWO PLACES AT ONCE. (CYRUS) NO, NO, WE PRE TAPE
THE SHOW AND THEN IT AIRS. (CASEY) I KNEW YOU’D SAY
SOMETHING LIKE THAT. SO I DEVISED THIS LITTLE
FORMULA TO HELP US KIND OF (CYRUS) OH DO TELL. (CASEY) ALL RIGHT IT GOES LIKE
THIS, E (CYRUS) ALL RIGHT, (CASEY) EQUALS M,
MMAITC SQUARED. (CYRUS) WOW, WHOA, THAT’S
SOMETHING. (CASEY) DO YOU GET IT? LIKE ALBERT EINSTEIN. (CYRUS) THAT’S HORRIBLE IS
WHAT THAT IS. THANK YOU CASEY. LET’S GET TO THE MMA NEWS
FLURRY. LET’S GET STARTED HERE, WITH
ONE FC AS THEY’VE ADDED GLORY AND DREAM TO THEIR
PARTNERSHIP. THEY NOW OWN NEARLY 85% OF THE
ASIAN MARKET. I THINK THAT’S RIGHT. I THINK IT’S 85%. ONE FC IS TAKING OVER, I MEAN
THAT SIDE OF THE WORLD AS FAR AS MMA IS CONCERNED. THEY JUST KEEP ADDING THESE
DIFFERENT GROUPS AND NOW THEY CAN HAVE THEIR GUYS ON
THE DREAM SHOWS, LIKE TH BIG NEW YEARS EVE SHOW THEY’RE
GOING TO HAVE THIS YEAR AS WELL AS HAVE THOSE FIGHTERS
COME FIGHT FOR ONE FC. IT’S PRETTY AMAZING. (CASEY) I THINK THEY’VE PICKED
UP THE BALL AND RUN WITH IT. (CYRUS) WOW, YEAH. (CASEY) WITH THE FALL OF K1,
AND YOU KNOW THERE’S STILL REELING FROM THE LOSS OF
PRIDE A COUPLE OF YEARS BACK. THEY’VE ACQUIRED ALL OF THIS
TALENT AND THEY PUT IT TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE AND I
THINK THERE IS A PLACE IN THE ORIENT, THIS IS A PLACE
WHERE MARTIAL ARTS ORIGINALLY CAME FROM. (CYRUS) AGREED (CASEY) AND
PROPS TO ONE FC FOR LIKE I SAID PICKING UP THAT BALL
AND RUNNING WITH IT. (CYRUS) I THINK IT’S AMAZING
AND I THINK ONE FC IS GOING TO KEEP ON TRUCKING EVEN MORE
BIG NAMES THEY’RE GOING TO ANNOUNCE SO ONEFC DOT COM
FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THAT. WE’RE GOING TO TALK A LITTLE
BIT ABOUT RFA, ONE OF THE PROMOTION THAT’S RIGHT
HERE ON FIGHT NOW TV WITH US. THEY JUST HAD THEIR BIG EVENT. RFA 5, JUST LAST WEEKEND. ANOTHER BIG EVENT FOR THEM,
THE MAIN EVEN JAROD DOWNING, JORDAN RINALDI, A GUY
THAT WE KNOW REAL WELL, GOING FOR THE FEATHERWEIGHT
TITLE, THE FIRST EVER DOWNING GETS THE WIN OVER
RINALDI, WHICH KIND OF SURPRISED ME. NOW DOWNING’S THE CHAMPION BUT
WE’VE SEEN RINALDI AND I HAVE A FEELING HE’S GOING TO
BOUNCE BACK. (CASEY) RINALDI’S A TOUGH
CHARACTER OF COURSE OUT OF THE CHARLOTTE AREA AND WE HAVE
SEEN A LOT OF HIM. YOU KNOW HE WENT FIVE,
5-MINUTE ROUNDS AND THAT IS A TRUE TESTAMENT TO BOTH
FIGHTERS AND A TESTAMENT TO RFA. IT’S A GREAT MAIN EVENT AND A
GREAT SHOW. (CYRUS) IT WASN’T ONE THEIR
BIG STAR STUDDED ONES BUT AS ALWAYS THEY DO PUT TOGETHER
A GREAT SHOW ON RFA. IT’S RFAFIGHTING DOT COM FOR
MORE INFORMATION. FINALLY WE MOVE TO STRIKEFORCE
WHERE WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE TO THIS GREAT
COMPANY BUT THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE ONE FINAL CARD JANUARY
12TH OKLAHOMA CITY IT’S CALLED STRIKEFORCE CHAMPION
AND OF COURSE IT’S GOING TO BE ON SHOWTIME AND THIS FIGHT
IS JUST GETTING STACKED WITH TALENT ALL THE GREATS TO
HELP BUILD UP THAT GREAT COMPANY. GUY’S LIKE NATE MARQUARDT, HE
DIDN’T HELP BUILD IT BUT HE’S COME IN HERE RIGHT
TOWARDS THE END AND HAS LOOKED IMPRESSIVE, TAKING ON
TAREC SAFFENDINE, DANIEL CORMIER TAKING ON DION
STARING, JOSH BARNETT AND NANDOR GUELMINO, GEGARD
MOUSASI, MIKE KYLE, KJ NOONS, RYAN COUTURE, PAT
HEALY, JORGE MASVIDAL, AND FINALLY ROGER GRACIE,
LORENZ LARKIN AND TIM KENNEDY WILL ALL BE ON THIS
CARD. JORGE GURGEL AS WELL, ANOTHER
GUY THAT WE KNOW REAL WELL. I’M REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS. I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE GREAT. (CASEY) TWO FIGHTS THAT STAND
OUT FOR ME OF COURSE, RYAN COUTURE AND KJ NOONS
THOSE ARE TWO GUYS THAT ARE VERY CONTRASTING. YOU’VE GOT ONE GUY WHO IS AN
UP AND COMER. HE’S GOT COUTURE NAME BACKING
HIM UP AND THEN HE’S FACING KJ NOONS WHO’S BEEN AROUND THE
BLOCK. (CYRUS) SURE (CASEY) THAT GUY
IS DYNAMITE. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO
HAPPEN. HE’S BEAT SOME OF THE BIGGEST
NAMES IN THE SPORT. WHEN YOU PUT THESE TWO
TOGETHER YOU’RE GOING TO SEE ONE OF TWO THINGS, YOU’RE
GOING TO SEE THE END OF RYAN COUTURE THE COUTURE
LEGACY OR YOU’RE GOING TO SEE A NEW STAR BORN. (CYRUS) YEAH, I AGREE AND THEN
WE’RE GOING TO HAVE THE TAREC SAFFENDINE, NATE
MARQUARDT FIGHT, WHO DO YOU THINK TAKES THIS FIGHT? (CASEY) THAT’S A VERY
INTERESTING MATCH UP BECAUSE YOU, (CYRUS) I TAKE
MARQUARDT ON THIS ONE. (CASEY) WELL YOU’VE GOT
MARQUARDT WHO HAS EXCELLENT STRIKING AN
EXCELLENT GROUND SKILLS, EXCELLENT JIU JITSU
AND THEN YOU’VE GOT TAREC SAFFENDINE, WHO HAS
EXCELLENT STRIKING BUT WORKS WITH DAN HENDERSON IN
WRESTLING. SO HE HAS A GREAT SPRAWL AND
BRAWL TECHNIQUE ARSENAL IN HIS GAME. SO I THINK THAT’S WHERE IT’S
GOING TO BE. I THINK THAT TAREC SAFFENDINE
KEEPING IT ON THE FEET WITH MARQUARDT IS GOING TO BE
WHERE IT’S KEY BUT IT DOES NOT ENSURE VICTORY BY ANY MEANS. (CYRUS) THAT’S GOING TO BE A
FANTASTIC CARD STRIKEFORCE DOT COM FOR MORE INFORMATION. OKLAHOMA CITY ON JANUARY 12TH. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THAT BIG
FIGHT. NOW AS WE MOVE INTO THE CLIP
OF THE WEEK, LAST WEEK’S CLIP OF THE WEEK COMPETITION
WAS FIERCE. WE ADDED A NEW WRINKLE TO IT,
WHERE THEY CAN GET ONTO OUR FACEBOOK. WE’VE GOT A TON OF NEW PEOPLE
THAT ARE WATCHING MMAITC, WHICH IS GREAT BUT
THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE WINNER OF THE TRAINING MASK
PACKAGE AND THAT IS CROWSNECK BOUTIN FROM NEW
ENGLAND FIGHTS. (CASEY) I LOVE IT MAN. (CYRUS) MMA DASH FIGHT, IT’S
AMAZING ISN’T IT. IT’S ALMOST AS GOOD AS CYRUS
FEES, MMA DASH FIGHTNIGHT DOT COM. NOW AS WE MOVE ON TO THIS
WEEK’S CLIP OF THE WEEK COMPETITION WHAT IS IN
THAT BIG PRIZE PACKAGE THAT THEY CAN WIN. (CASEY) AS ALWAYS WE’RE
TALKING ABOUT HUNTER MMA, BAMF FIGHT GEAR, GAMMA LABS
PRE WORKOUT FORMULA, AND THE BIG DOG, WE’RE TALKING
ABOUT ELEVATION TRAINING MASK 2.0. (CYRUS) AND GUYS REMEMBER TO
GET YOUR VOTES IN ON THESE CLIPS AS YOU SEE THEM IN
THIS EPISODE. NOW COMING UP NEXT ROUND WE’RE
GOING TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME SHOW
IN THE WORLD. DARE FIGHT SPORTS THAT’S GOING
TO BE AFTER THE BREAK AND RUFF CHINA 7, A FULL PREVIEW
IN THE THIRD ROUND BUT FIRST YOUR FIRST FOUR
FINALISTS FOR CLIP OF THE WEEK. (FIGHT & CROWD SOUNDS) (MUSIC) (COMMERCIALS) (MUSIC) (MMA ITC BROUGHT TO YOU BY) (CYRUS) WELCOME BACK IT’S
SECOND ROUND TIME AND DARE FIGHT SPORTS IS A COMPANY
OUT OF THAILAND THAT WE STARTED FOLLOWING ABOUT A
YEAR AGO AND WE STARTED SHOWING THEIR FIGHTS
ND WE REALLY LOVED THEIR PRODUCT, LOVED THE
FIGHTERS, LOVED THE NICKNAME THING THAT THEY WERE
DOING THERE. WELL NOW THEY’VE TAKEN A NEW
LEVEL BECAUSE THE THAI GOVERNMENT GOT INVOLVED
AND SAID THEY DON’T WANT MMA INVOLVED IN THAILAND. THEY DON’T WANT THE SANCTION
FIGHTS WHATSOEVER AND I THINK IT MIGHT BE SOMETHING TO
DO WITH THE THAI BOXING, MAYBE THEY JUST WANT TO KEEP
ELEVATING THAT AND WANTING TO PUSH MMA TO THE SIDE. UNDERSTANDABLE, WELL NOW DARE
HAS GONE UNDERGROUND. THEY HAVE A NEW EPISODIC
FORMAT, INNOVATIVE DESIGN, AND THEY’RE NOW CALLED THE
MOST DANGEROUS GAME SHOW IN THE WORLD. THERE’S SO MANY COOL WRINKLES
IN THIS PRODUCT THAT I REALLY LIKE. (CASEY) I THINK IT’S REALLY
NEAT. IT’S ALMOST LIKE ITS
PROPAGANDA BASED. YOU KNOW IT’S LIKE IT’S THEM
AGAINST THE THAI GOVERNMENT IS IT REAL, IS IT NOT REAL,
WHO KNOWS AND YOU KNOW IT’S ONE OF THOSE THINGS, YOU
KNOW I’M NOT ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE TO SUPPORT
UNSANCTIONED FIGHTING BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE FIGHTS THEY
HAVE CERTIFIED REFS. THEY GO BY UNIFIED RULES. THEY’RE DOING EVERYTHING RIGHT. NOW, WITH THAT BEING SAID
WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF A SANCTIONING BODY THE
LIABILITY IS THROUGH THE ROOF, WHICH MAKES IT ALL THAT
MORE INTRIGUING. (CYRUS) THAT’S TRUE AND THEY
DO THE NICKNAME THING AND THEY DON’T REALLY ANNOUNCE THE
REAL NAMES. (CASEY) YEAH, IT’S KIND OF
LIKE THEY’RE HIDING OUT. (CYRUS) YEAH, IT’S THE MACHINE
VERSUS THE BATTERY IN THE FIRST FIGHT AND IT WAS,
IT’S CRAZY. YOU GOT TO CHECK IT OUT. IN FACT LET’S TAKE A PEAK INTO
ONE OF THE EPISODES OF THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME SHOW
IN THE WORLD. (MUSIC) (ANNOUNCER) WHAT’S THE NUMBER
ONE GAME SHOW IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD? (MUSIC) (MALE) THIS MACHINE IS MADE OF
SUB HUMAN STEEL JAW, A GOOD AMOUNT OF INK AND SOME
BIG BRASS BALLS THAT CHIME IN THE WIND. (MUSIC) (MALE) THE GTO, THAT
IS YOUR MMA HEAVYWEIGHT WORLD ISN’T STARTING FOR YOU,
WE CAN JUMPSTART YOU OR YOU CAN CHECK OUT THE BATTERY. (MUSIC) (MALE 1) THERE’S NOT A
FAVORITE MATCH UP TOWARD ONE PERSON LIKE STRIKER OR
WRESTLERS, EVEN MATCH. (MALE 2) HASN’T GOT I’M SORRY;
I’M GOING TO SMASH HIS FACE. (MUSIC) (RICHARD) LADIES AND
GENTLEMEN WELCOME TO DARE FIGHT SPORTS, CERTAINLY
FOR US FIGHT OF THE NIGHT. MY NAME IS RICHARD ARTHUR
COMMENTATING WITH THE HOST WITH THE MOST JOHN NUTT. (MUSIC) (ANNOUNCER) NEXT WEEK
ON THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME SHOW, LIVE AT
DAREFIGHTSPORTS DOT COM (MUSIC) (CYRUS) AS YOU CAN SEE IT’S A
BIG, FUN PRODUCT. IT’S ALMOST LIKE AMERICAN
GLADIATORS COMES TO THE CAGE MAN. I LOVE THIS STUFF. IT’S THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME
SHOW IN THE WORLD, DAREFIGHTSPORTS DOT COM
FOR MORE INFORMATION AND YOU CAN WATCH ALL THE EPISODES
RIGHT THERE AND WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A FULL PREVIEW OF
ROUGH CHINA 7 AFTER THE BREAK AND A BIG MAIN EVENT OF
THE WEEK, BUT FIRST FOUR MORE FINALISTS FOR CLIP OF THE
WEEK. (FIGHT & CROWD SOUNDS) (MUSIC) (COMMERCIALS) (MUSIC) (MMA ITC BROUGHT TO YOU BY) (CYRUS) WELCOME BACK IT’S
THIRD ROUND TIME AND IT’S TIME TO IMPRESS THE JUDGES,
NOW ONE COMPANY THAT IS CONTINUALLY IMPRESSED US
OVER TIME HAS BEEN RUFF CHINA. RUFF CHINA 7’S COMING UP
SATURDAY DECEMBER 22ND FROM THE WUTAISHON INDOOR
STADIUM IN NANJING. THIS IS THE LAST FIGHT BEFORE
THE BIG SUPER FIGHT COMING UP IN FEBRUARY OF 2013. YOU HAVE FOUR ELIMINATOR
FIGHTS HERE AND TWO OF THESE FIGHTS ARE GOING TO GO
ON TO MAKE ON OF THOSE FIGHTS FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP,
FOR THE MILLION RNB, WHICH IS A LOT OF MONEY OVER THERE. SO LET’S KIND OF GET INTO THIS
CARD CASEY. 205-POUND MATCH, YOU’RE GOING
TO HAVE THE WINNER TAKING ON LI JIXIANG AT THE SUPER
FIGHT IT’S KONG HANDONG TAKING ON ZHAO ZILONG. I LIKE JIXIANG IN THIS ONE. I THINK YOU CAN PROBABLY AGREE
WITH ME ON THIS, JUST A LOT MORE EXPERIENCE, A LOT
MORE BIG FIGHTERS THAT HE’S BEATEN AND HANDONG IS
STILL KIND OF UNPROVEN AT THIS POINT. (CASEY) HANDONG IS KIND OF A
WILD CARD, ZHAO ZILONG IS PICKED TO GO ON TO FACE LI
JIXIANG, WHO HAS ACTUALLY DEFEATED BOTH OF
THESE FIGHTERS. SO BOTH THESE GUYS ARE LOOKING
FOR SOME REDEMPTION AND MAYBE A SHOT AT MAKING SOME
BIG BUCKS. (CYRUS) I AGREE. NOW ANOTHER FIGHT WHICH IS
INTERESTING IN THAT WAY IS THE 155 POUND MATCH, THE
LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE MATCH, WHERE WU HAOTIAN IS TAKING ON
ARTHIT HANCHANA, THE WINNER TAKING ON RODRIGO
CAPORAL AT THE SUPER FIGHT. NOW THE INTERESTING THING
ABOUT HIS, THEY’VE BOTH LOST TO THE GUY, RODRIGO
CAPORAL WHO THEY WILL MEAT AT THE SUPER FIGHT. LIKE I SAID THIS IS
INTERESTING, HAOTIAN I THINK PROBABLY HAS THE
ADVANTAGE IN THIS ONE IF I HAD TO PICK. (CASEY) WELL YOU KNOW HANCHANA
HE OF COURSE HE LOST TO RODRIGO CAPORAL TO THE
BRABO CHOKE BUT HE DID GO INTO THE THIRD. HE DID TAKE IT ALL THE WAY TO
THE THIRD AND THEN HAOTIAN, (CYRUS) TOOK THE
KNOCK OUT (CASEY) IT CAN BE ARGUED HE GOT CAUGHT. SO I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE
EXTREMELY INTERESTING FIGHT AND I THINK IT GOES ON
TO BE EXTREMELY INTERESTING FIGHT, WHOEVER
TAKES IT AGAINST RODRIGO CAPORAL BECAUSE
EVERYONE KNOWS THAT THE REMATCH IS THE MOST
DIFFICULT FIGHT TO GO OUT BECAUSE THERE’S THE
SURPRISE FACTOR IS GONE. (CYRUS) I AGREE. SOME OTHER FIGHTS THAT ARE
GOING TO BE GREAT OF COURSE WU CHENGJIE TAKING ON YUAN
CHUBO TEAMMATES, IT’S JUST ALWAYS INTERESTING AND OF
COURSE THIS IS A FEATHER WEIGHT ELIMINATOR
FIGHTS. SO WE WILL SEE THEM FIGHT FOR
A CHAMPIONSHIP, THE WINNER OF THAT. NOW THE MAIN EVENT IS
125-POUND FLYWEIGHT ELIMINATOR FIGHT WHERE ZHANG
MEIXUAN IS TAKING ON SHANG ZHIFA. NOW THIS IS GOING TO BE A
FANTASTIC FIGHT AS WELL, AS ALL THE GREAT FIGHTS ON THE
RUFF CHINA CARD. YOU’RE ALWAYS GOING TO BE
ENTERTAINED. I’M GOING TO BE THERE ON
COMMENTARY, CALLING IT FOR YOU AND IT’S GOING TO BE
AVAILABLE ON LINE, JUST CHECK OUT RUFFCHINA DOT COM
