PROMOTIONS, MAYBE TRYING TO CUT
THE COST FROM SOME OF THOSE HIGHER BUDGET EUROPEAN/ASIAN
FIGHTERS. ITS A SHAME WERE NOT
GOING TO SEE THOSE GUYS IN
AMERICA FOR A WHILE BUT IM SURE WE’LL SEE THEM IN SOME OF THOSE
INTERNATIONAL EVENTS WERE TAKING
A LOOK AT. (CYRUS) NO DOUBT

SPRAWL AND BRAWL BECAUSE CRAIG JOHNSON IS ONE OF THE TOP
WRESTLERS IN THE STATE, WORKED

ABOUT YOUR SECOND RFL EVENT.
TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT. (?)
YEAH WERE REALLY EXCITED, THIS IS OUR FIRST TIME
OBVIOUSLY, THE RFL EARLY ON IS A
TRAVELING SHOW IF YOU LOOK FOR
UP START TALENT IN CERTAIN AREAS, BRING TALENT IN AS WELL,
BUILD THEM UP. FIRST TIME GOING
INTO MORRISTOWN WERE EXCITED,
WE’VE ALWAYS HAD ALOT OF TEAMS COMING OUT OF MORRISTOWN
SO ITS NICE TO BE ABLE TO BRING
THE SHOW TO THEIR BACKYARD.
(CYRUS) SURE. NOW DO YOU THINK ITS GOING TO BE A GOOD
TOWN? DO YOU THINK THERE RIGHT
FOR SOME MMA IN MORRISTOWN, TN?
(?) SO FAR THE RECEPTIONS BEEN AWESOME. WE’VE BEEN
WELCOMED WITH OPEN ARMS
EVERYWHERE WE’VE GONE AND
EVERYONES BEEN CHOMPING AT THE
BIT, TICKETS ARE GOING SO WERE EXCITED.
(CYRUS) NOW THERE ARE SO MANY
BIG FIGHTS ON THIS CARD CASEY.
NOW I KNOW YOU GOT SOME GUYS
THAT ARE GOING TO BE FIGHTING. STEVE
THOMAS, MARK CLOYD ARE GONG TO
BE ON THE CARD. TALK ABOUT SOME
OF YOUR FIGHTERS AND WHAT THEIR PLANS ARE FOR RISING FIGHT
LEAGUE. (CASEY) RIGHT AS YOU
MENTIONED THOSE TWO, BUT THEN
ALSO OF COURSE THERES THE ROBOCOP, DAVE CHAMBERS,AND OF
COURSE HE MADE HIS DEBUT IN THE
LAST X SERIES EVENT AND WON THE
FIGHT AND EVERYBODY THATS FOLLOWED THE SHOW KNOWS THE RISE
OF ROBOCOP, DAVE CHAMBERS. HES
BACK AT IT AGAIN HES AT BAT, AND
WERE EXCITED TO SEE HIM GO DOWN AND DO IT. (CYRUS) VERY
TRUE. NOW WERE GONA GO INTO THE
CARD IN DETAIL IN ROUND #3. LETS
TALK ABOUT THIS SUPER FIGHT THAT YOU GUYS HAVE ON THIS
ONE. ITS VERY INTRESTING, YOU
BRING A SUPER FIGHT IN HERE.
CAUSE ALOT OF THESE GUYS ARE 1-0, 2-0, YOUR BRINGING IN 2
VETERANS OF THE SPORT BASICALLY.
YOU GOT LEN COOKE OUT OF
ABSOLUTE THEN YOU GOT CHONCI
HOUSTON OUT OF WOLFLAND, BOTH HAD GREAT
PERFORMANCES AT THE CROSSROAD
EVENT. TALK ABOUT THIS MATCHUP
I’LL DIRECT THIS TO YOU TIM, YOU PUT IT TOGETHER. TALK ABOUT
THIS FIGHT. (TIM) I WAS TORN ON
THIS ONE BECAUSE AT THE VERY
BEGINNING WE SAID FOR RFL, THAT WE WERE GNA MAKE IT
STRICLEY FOR GUYS FOR 5 FIGHTS
OR LESS. AND THEN THE
OPPORTUNITY CAME TO PUT TOGETHER
A SUPER FIGHT, AND LEN COOKE, THIS IS
GOING TO ACTUALLY BE HIS LAST
AMATEUR FIGHT BEFORE HE GOES
PRO, A HARD TIME PASSING UP ON THAT ONE, THIS WILL BE HIS
TOUGHEST CHALLENGES TODAY.
CHONCI HOUSTON HIS RECORD IS
ONLY 2-1 HE DOESNT HAVE ALOT OF
MMA EXPERIENCE BUT THIS IS A FORMER
DIVISION 2 ALL AMERICAN WRESTLER
AT UTC CARSON NEWMAN, HES A STUD
AND CERTAINLY NOT A STEPPING STONE FOR LEN BY ANY
MEANS. (CYRUS) THATS WHAT I WAS
ABOUT TO SAY AND CHONCI HAD A
GREAT PERFORMANCE AT THE CROSSROADS EVENT, I MEAN GENE DO
YOU THINK THATS IT GONA BE A
GOOD FIGHT OR DO YOU THINK LEN
COOK COULD JUST ROLL RIGHT THROUGH HIM? (GENE) YOU KNOW ITS
HRAD TO SAY. LEN COOK IS A CAGED
VERTERAN AND HES BEEN PUSHED AND
CHONCI HOUSTON COMING IN, HES A SUPER ATHLETE, YOU CAN
NEVER COUNT A WRESTLER OF HIS
CALIBER OUT AT ALL. I THINK THIS
IS ONE OF THOSE FIGHTS THAT ITS A PICKING FIGHT, IM
EXCITED, I HOPE WE GET TO SEE
ALL THE LEVELS OF MMA AND ALOT
OF PEOPLE ARE EXPECTING A GROUND WAR BUT BOTH GUYS HAVE
SHOWN TO HAVE MORE THAN ABOVE
AVERAGE STRENGTH. (CYRUS) LEN
COOKS STRIKING HAS IMPROVED BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS CASEY. LEN
COOKS BECAME MORE OF AN ALL
AROUND FIGHTER AND NOT JUST A
GROUND GUY NOW. (CASEY) OH YEAH. LEN IS COMPLETE. THE
GENERAL CONSENSES ON THIS FIGHT
FROM WHAT IM HEARING IS THAT,
CHONCI SHOULD BE ABLE TO TAKE HIM DOWN BUT LEN HAS INCREDIBLE
GROUND SKILLS AND INCREDIBLE
STRIKING. SO ALOT OF IT WILL BE
IF LEN COOK WILL BE ABLE TO STOP THE TAKEDOWN AND IF HE DOES
GET TAKEN DOWN, HOW IS HIS
SUBMISSION GAME GONA LOOK? IF HE
CANT APPLY THAT SUBMISSION GAME THEN CHONCI COULD GET ON A
ROLL. (CYRUS) WELL ITS NO DOUBT
GONA BE A FIGHT TO WATCH, A HUGE
AMATEUR MATCHUP, AND AT THE CROSSROADS EVENT IN JUNE
CHONCI HOUSTON WENT UP AGAINST
BRANDON ROSE, ITS OUR SECOND
FIGHT OF THE NIGHT THIS IS MMA INSIDE THE CAGE WITH THE
RISING FIGHT LEAGUE PREVIEW
SHOW. (CASEY) ALRIGHT, CONTRAST OF
STYLES COMING UP HERE. (COM) SO
WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THESE
GUYS? (CASEY) WELL LOOKING FOR SOME SPEED..
BOTH TEAMS, OF COURSE CHONCI OUT
OF TEAM TKO HERE IN KNOXVILLE.
(COM) SO WE GOT CHONCI HOUSTON AND BRANDON ROSE.
BRANDON ROSE MAKING HIS DEBUT..
AND WE HAVE CHONCI.. HOW MANY
FIGHTS HAS CHONCI HAD? DO WE
HAVE THAT DOWN HERE? 2 FIGHTS.. IM
GETTING INFORMATION FROM OVER
HERE BUDDY. (CASEY) WELL I CAN
TELL YOU THAT CHONCI IS THE MUCH MORE POISED AND COMPOSED OF
THE 2 FIGHTERS.. YOUR LOOKING AT
BRANDON ROSE AND HES GOT A
LITTLE BIT MORE OF A WILDER STYLE GOT A LITTLE MORE
RANGE. (COM) A LOOPING RIGHT
HAND RIGHT THERE. (CASEY) CHONCI
WORKING HIS WAY IN.. (COM) TRYING TO CLOSE THE DISTANCE,
HES CUTTING THE RING OFF..
(CASEY) ABSOLUTLEY THE SHORTER
FIGHTER NEEDING TO DO THAT AND GET INSIDE.. HERE WE GO… (COM)
NOW SPEAKING OF TAKEDOWN TO
SLAMS, WITH SCORING AND JUDGING
AND EVERYTHING, HOW DO YOU FEEL SCORING AND JUDGING HAS
BEEN PROGRESSING IN MMA NOW.
(CASEY) SO YOU MEAN HOW WOULD
THE SLAMS ACTUALLY SCORE IN THE FIGHT? (COM) WELL THAT BUT JUST
JUDGING IN GENERAL. PEOPLE
ALWAYS COMPLAIN ABOUT THE
JUDGING AND THAT THE JUDGES SOMETIMES GET THE FIGHTS WRONG.
BUT SINCE IVE GOTTEN INVOLVED IN
MMA, IVE NOTICED THAT THE JUDGES
ARE GETTING STRONGER AND THEIR GETTING BETTER AS TIME
GOES ON. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
(CASEY) WELL I THINK YOU
DEFINITLEY HAVE TOO HAVE A TOUCH
IN ORDER TO JUDGE MIXED MARTIAL
ARTS JUST LIKE PRO BOXING
COMPARED TO AMATEUR BOXING. I
THINK IT IS GETTING BETTER BUT LIKE I SAID, YOU DO HAVE TO HAVE
THAT ARTISTIC UNDERSTANDING AND
KNOW THAT DAMAGE IS MMA. THE
TAKEDOWN… OH MY GOODNESS… OH AND HE LETS HIM
UP.. IS THE FIGHT OVER? (COM)
THE REFEREE SORT OF STEPPED IN
RIGHT NOW AND PROTECTED THE GUY THAT CAME UP. THATS WHAT A
REFEREE IS SUPPOSED TO DO.
(CASEY) BRANDON ROSE IS
DEFINITLEY WOBBLED. (COM) HES
WOBBLED AND LOOKS LIKE HES A LITTLE OVER
MATCHED RIGHT NOW..HES STILL
MANTAINING.. (CASEY) BUT HES GOT
TO KEP THOSE HANDS UP… THE FIGHTS OVER. (COM) THE FIGHTS
OVER.. BOOM.. BOOM GOES THE
DYNAMITE. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] (CYRUS) WELCOME BACK TO MMA
INSIDE THE CAGE, A BIG RISING
FIGHT LEAGUE SHOW COOK VS.
HOUSTON. CYRUS FEES, CASEY OXENDINE, GENE
CLICK, AND TIM LOY IN THE HOUSE.
NOW I HAVE TO ASK GENE, HOW
OFTEN DO YOU HAVE PEOPLE SAY YOU LOOK LIKE DANA WHITE? I KNOW IT
HAPPENS. (GENE) NEVER (CYRUS)
THATS CRAP, THATS CRAP, (GENE)
IVE BEEN CALLED WORSE (CYRUS) YOUR LYING RIGHT NOW.. OUR MAIN
EVENT OF THE NIGHT IS COMING UP
BUT LETS RUN DOWN THIS CARD AND
LOOK AT SOME OF THE REAL HIGHLIGHTS. IM LOVING SOME OF
THR PRELIMS EVEN. YOU GOT
ABSOLUTES PARKER GEMMEL DOING A
KICKBOXING MATCH TO START IT OFF. THATS GONA BE COOL JUST TO
SEE HIM IN A DIFFERENT ELEMENT.
(TIM) YEAH ITS ACTUALLY THE
FIRST TIME ANYONE FROM ABSOLUTE HAS HAD A KICKBOXING
MATCH AND THEIR WELL ROUNDED
GUYS. THEIR NORMALLY KNOWN FOR
THEIR GRAPPLING AS YOU KNOW. BUT WERE GONA SEE PARKER GEMMEL
GET IN THERE AND THROW DOWN WITH
SOME KICKBOXING. IM IMPRESSED BY
PARKERS STRIKING IN THE PAST SO I THINK HE’LL BE FINE.
(CYRUS) THAT WILL BE GOOD. ALEX
BROYLES LOOKS TO GO UNDEAFTED
AGAINST BRANDON GRIMMETT. NOW BROYLES LOOKS REALLY TUFF
GENE, MAN HES REALLY BUILT IT
JUST LOOKS LIKE HE HAS ALOT OF
SKILLS COMING OUT OF D-EVIL. (TIM) YEAH AT THE X SERIES SHOW,
ALEX CAME OUT, I MEAN HES A
SPECIMEN AT THE WEIGHT DIVISION,
AS HIS SKILLS CONTINUE TO EVOLVE HES GONA BE A CONTENDER
FOR SURE IN THE DIVISION. HE IS
ONE OF THE TRUE GUYS IN THE
SOUTHEAST RIGHT NOW THATS REALLY BIG FOR THEIR WEIGHT.
(CYRUS) ITS KIND OF LIKE SCOTT
HOLTZMAN? (TIM) EXACTLY. AND
COMING OUT OF D-EVIL, HES GONA BRING THE GOODS. SO WERE
EXPECTING BIG THINGS. (CYRUS)
HOW ABOUT ROBOCOP TURNING INTO
THE CAGE, AFTER HIS LAST WIN AT
X SERIES AT 40 YEARS OLD, HES NOT
EVEN 40 IS HE? (CASEY) HE JUST
TURNED 42 (CYRUS) 42? (CASEY) HE
TURNED 42 THE NIGHT OF WEIGHINS AT THE LAST FIGHT.
(CYRUS) TALK ABOUT ANOTHER
PHYSICAL SPECIMEN.. (CASEY) YEAH
HE LOOKS GREAT AND HES FIGHTING ANOTHER GUY IN HIS 40S
ITS GONA BE A GOOD EVENLY
MATCHED FIGHT SO WERE EXCITED.
(CYRUS) AND HE HAS A ROWDY CROWD THAT COMES WITH HIM.
(CASEY) HE DOES MAN THIS GUY IS
OUT OF CONTROL. (CYRUS) ITS GONA
BE AWESOME. WE’LL SEE HOW THEY FILL UP THE ITALIAN WORLD
CENTER. UH BRANDON BULLINGTON
THERES ANOTHER FIGHT, GIB FRYE
UH GIB FRYE DIDNT GET TO FIGHT ON THE LAST EVENT BECAUSE HIS
OPPONENT COULDNT MAKE IT BUT I
KNOW HES RAREN TO GO,
BULLINGTONS GONA HAVE A REAL
GOOD FIGHT ON HIS HANDS. (TIM) YEAH
BULLINGTON VS. FRYE, THATS A
GOOD FIGHT, WE LIKE THAT ITS 2
REALLY TOP TEAMS GOING AGAINST
EACH OTHER. I THINK ITS THE FIRST
TIME WE SEE ANYONE FROM CHAOS
TAE ON A GUY FROM ABSOLUTE. SO
THATS ONE OF KNOXVILLES BEST TEAMS AGAINST ONE OF THE
TRICITIES BEST TEAMS GOING AT IT
FOR 155 BELTS. (CYRUS) NOW
ANOTHER BIG FIGHT IS THE DUSTIN
LONG FIGHT NOW HES FIGHTING SAM BURNS
AND DUSTIN LONG JUST TOOK THAT
LOSS AT THE LAST EVENT AND YOU
KNOW ITS PROBABLY EATING HIM UP INSIDE. IT WAS A MEDICAL
INJURY. HES NOT INJURED, THANK
GOODNESS, BUT YOU KNOW HES GONA
BE COMING BACK WITH AVENGANCE. (CASEY) YEAH I KNOW
MAN. IM SO GLAD HE WASNT INJURED
SERIOUSLY BUT IT IS TEARING HIM
UP AND HE IS EXCITED TO GET BACK IN THE THERE AND YOU
KNOW SAM BURNS IS GONA BE AN
INCREDIBLE GATE KEEPER FOR HIM.
(CYRUS) HES GOT THAT HAIR KIND OF LIKE YOU. (CASEY) HE
DOES, HE COMES TO FIGHT
EVERYTIME. (CYRUS) ITS GONA BE A
VERY GOOD FIGHT. BILLY WHITE/DAVID MILES FOR THE
BANTAMWEIGHT TITLE, YOU GOT ALOT
OF TITLE FIGHTS ON THIS. TALK
ABOUT THAT FIGHT MAN IT SHOULD
BE VERY COMPETITIVE. (GENE) YOU
KNOW BOTH THESE GUYS ARE SHOWING
THAT THEIR 2 GUYS TO KEEP A
LOOKOUT FOR. EARLY ON WE HAD MET BILLY MILES AND HES KIND OF GOT
THE JOE LOZON LOOK TO HIM, HES
NOT REALLY ATHLETIC PERSAY BUT
THEN HE GETS IN THERE AND HES SUPER COMPETITIVE AND SUPER
SKILLED AND DAVID MILES IS COMING OFF 2 HUGE WINS RECENTLY.
SO WERE VERY EXCITED BECAUSE ITS
2 VERY YOUNG GUYS, THEIR BOTH
COMING OUT OF GOOD CAMPS, AND BOTH DESPERATE FOR THE BELT.
SO I KNOW WERE GONA GET A GOOD
FIGHT OUT OF THAT ONE. (CYRUS)
ABSOLUTLEY. GOOD STUFF. AND FINALLY THE CO-MAIN EVENT
STEVE THOMAS,CRAIG JOHNSON NOW
GENTLEMEN, BEFORE WE SEE STEVE
THOMAS’S LAST WAR, WHAT FIGHT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT? OFF
THIS WHOLE CARD, WHATS THE ONE
FIGHT THATS GOT YOU REALLY GOING
AS A FAN? (TIM) AS A FAN, I THINK THE FIGHT THATS
GONA DELIVER THE MOST IS GONA BE
DUSTIN LONG VS. SAM BURNS. I
THINK WE’LL GET 3 GOOD HARD HITTING ROUNDS FROM BOTH THOSE
GUYS. I DONT THINK EITHER ONE’S
GOT ANY QUIT IN HIM. (CYRUS)
ABSOLUTLEY.AND YOU? (GENE) SAME. SAME HERE, I THINK YOUR
GONA GET 2 GUYS THAT BOTH ARE
LOOKING AT THE OPPORTUNITY, OF
COURSE DUSTIN IS LOOKING TO GET THE BAD TASTE OUT OF HIS
MOUTH, SAM HAS SHOWN THAT HE
COMES TO FIGHT, HE LOVES
FIGHTING, I THINK HE WOULD DO IT
IN THE PARKING LOT. SO YOU GOT 2
GUYS, NEITHER ONE OF THEM ARE
TRAINED TO LOSS, SO I THINK THAT
FIGHT, LIKE TIM SAID, IS GOING TO BE THE ONE THAT
DELIVERS. (CYRUS) AND CASEY, YOU
WENT UNDEAFTED AT THE LAST
CROSSROADS EVENT RIGHT? I KNOW YOUR WANTING TO GO 4-0, 3-0 AT
THIS EVENT AREN’T YA? (CASEY) OH
YEAH. WERE ALWAYS HOPING TO TAKE
HOME THE WINS AND IM REALLY ANXIOUS TO SEE STEVE AND
CRAIG GO AT IT. I BELIEVE ITS
GOING TO BE BLOODY AND A REALLY
TUFF GRUELING BATTLE BECAUSE THEY BOTH HAVE THEIR ATTRIBUTES
