MMA: Inside the Cage #88 – “A Dose of Reality”


[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. I’M YOUR HOST CYRUS FEES. HE’S CASEY OXENDINE AND AS
WE’RE KNOWN ON THE INTERNET NOW, WE ARE THE SUIT
AND THE BEARD. YOU COOL WITH THAT PARTNER? (CASEY) WELL I DON’T KNOW MAN,
YOU KNOW BECAUSE I WORKED REALLY, REALLY HARD IN
THIS SPORT AND ON THIS SHOW TO CREATE A REAL NON
CONFORMANCE WAY OF APPROACHING THIS. (CYRUS) OKAY (CASEY) AND TO BE
CALLED A SUIT AFTER EVERYTHING THAT I’VE BEEN
THROUGH AND EVERYTHING I’VE DONE SORT OF CONFUSES ME
(CYRUS) YEAH (CASEY) AND INSULTS ME SOMEWHAT. (CYRUS) YEAH, SO YOU DON’T
THINK I WOULD BE THE SUIT AND YOU WOULD BE THE BEARD
MAYBE. (CASEY) (LAUGHTER) WELL THAT
CERTAINLY MAKES A LOT MORE SENSE. (CYRUS) IT SURE DOES. TONIGHT WE’RE GOING TO GIVE
YOU ANOTHER HOMETOWN THROWDOWN, THIS TIME
COMING OUT OF CONNECTICUT WITH REALITY FIGHTING. WE’RE ALSO GOING TO CHECK OUT
SOME HOMETOWN COOKING FROM THE 3FC, AND IRIS GARCIA HAS
HELLBOY JOACHIM HANSEN AS WELL AS WEC VET CHAD GEORGE A GUY THAT IS STILL ON THE RISE. (CYRUS) LET’S GO TO A LITTLE BIT LATER. NOW LET’S GO TO THE NEWS WIRE
AND BREAK DOWN A LITTLE MMA NEWS FLURRY. LAST WEEK WE FEATURED DARE IN
OUR MAIN EVENT OF THE WEEK AND IT LOOKS LIKE NOW THAT
EVENT IN THAILAND MAYBE THE LAST ONE IN THE COUNTRY
FOR A WHILE. NEWS HAS COME DOWN TO THE
COUNTRY IS BANNING MIXED MARTIAL ARTS IMMEDIATELY
CITING THAT IT’S TOO BRUTAL. NOW WE’VE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH
JUSSI SALORANTA, THE OWNER OF DARE AND THIS IS THE
COMPANY’S STATEMENT. YOU CAN SEE IT HERE ON THE
SCREEN. NOW CASEY THIS SEEMS TO BE A
LITTLE FISHY, YOU KNOW THIS IS KIND OF LIKE HOW BOXING
PROMOTERS KIND OF PUT PRESSURE ON MMS IN RECENT YEARS. WHAT’S YOUR TAKE ON IT? (CASEY) WELL THAT CAN
DEFINITELY BE PART OF IT. THAILAND IS A HUGE AMOUNT OF
REVENUE FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE THERE IN THAILAND YOU
KNOW IT’S THE NATIONAL SPORT. BUT YOU’VE GOT TO LOOK AT THE
FLIP SIDE TOO, YOU KNOW THE WAY MMA IS BROUGHT IN AND
THE WAY MAUY THAI IS PRESENTED, YOU KNOW MUAY
THAI IS EVERY BIT AS BRUTAL AND VIOLENT AS MIXED
MARTIAL ARTS. BUT THEY’RE VERY CEREMONIAL,
MUCH LIKE SUMO WRESTLING IN JAPAN. YOU KNOW THEY HAVE A CEREMONY. IT’S VERY RESPECTFUL. YOU KNOW THEY PLAY MUSIC
DURING THE FIGHTS. IT’S JUST A WHOLE DIFFERENT
KIND OF APPROACH AND I THINK IT’S GOING TO TAKE SOME
TIME NOW FOR THAT COUNTRY AND THE COMMISSIONS AND
EVERYTHING TO ACCEPT MIXED MARTIAL ARTS. (CYRUS) WELL I THINK YOU KNOW
DARE IS FAR FROM OVER. YOU KNOW IF WORSE COMES TO
WORSE THE COMPANY HAS ASSURED ME THAT THEY HAVE
OPTIONS OUTSIDE OF THAILAND. SO DARES NOT GOING ANYWHERE
THAT MILLION-DOLLAR PURSE IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE. DAREFIGHTSPORTS DOT COM GO
CHECK IT OUT FOR ANY UPCOMING UPDATES. NOW IT WAS QUITE THE WEEK FOR
KING MO MUHAMMED LAWAL, AS HE WAS FINED 30,000 DOLLARS. HE WAS SUSPENDED FOR NINE
MONTHS, CRITICIZED YOU KNOW HE CRITICIZED IN THE NEVADA
STATE ATHLETIC COMMISSION AND THEN HE WAS FIRED FROM
ZUFFA. A LOT OF STUFF GOING ON HERE,
NOW HE SAYS HE’S LOOKING INTO PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS WHOLE
SITUATION WITH KING MO CASEY? (CASEY) WELL CALLED THE
COMMISSION RACIST IS WHAT HE DID. (CYRUS) YEAH, RIGHT A LITTLE
ROUGH. (CASEY) STRAIGHT UP AND BUT
YOU’VE GOT TO LOOK AT IT, KING MO HAS HAD A ROUGH FEW
MONTHS, YOU KNOW LAST FEW MONTHS OF COURSE HE HAD
THE KNEE SURGERY. HE HAD THAT HORRIBLE STAFF
INFECTION, POSSIBLY THE WORST STAFF INFECTION
ANYBODY’S (CYRUS) SCARY STUFF (CASEY) EVER HAD. YOU KNOW HE HAD A HEART STINT. THEY DIDN’T KNOW IF HE WAS
GOING TO MAKE IT ALL, YOU KNOW AND THAT’S A LOT OF
PRESSURE. YOU KNOW AND WHEN YOU THINK
THERE’S A POSSIBILITY YOU’RE JUST NOT GOING TO MAKE
IT AT ALL, YOU KNOW THERE’S A LOT OF STRESS INVOLVED AND
HE GOES TO THE HEARING WITH THE COMMISSION AND YOU
KNOW HE FEELS LIKE THAT THEY WOULDN’T LISTEN TO HIM. YOU KNOW HE FELT LIKE HE
BROUGHT A STRONG ARGUMENT AND THEY PUT HIM ON THE
CHOPPING BLOCK. SO I CAN UNDERSTAND HIS
FRUSTRATION. UNFORTUNATELY WHEN YOU MAKE
THOSE KIND OF COMMENTS TO A COMMISSION LIKE THAT YOU CAN
BE IN TROUBLE, PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING I DON’T
KNOW MAN. (CYRUS) I CAN SEE IT. I CAN SEE IT. (CASEY) KING MO YOU KNOW JUST
LIKE RAMPAGE AND YOU KNOW WHAT RAMPAGE MIGHT SHOW UP
DOWN THERE AND THEY MAY HAVE THAT FEUD THEY WERE
TALKING ABOUT IN THE BEGINNING. KING MO AND (CYRUS) THIS IS
TRUE, I CAN SEE, I DON’T SEE THEM GOING STRAIGHT TO THE
WWE BUT I CAN SEE TNA FOR SURE THAT WOULD BE A GOOD
OPTION FOR HIM TO GET STARTED. WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. OUR BREAKING STORY OF THE WEEK
WELL THAT COMES FROM KEARNEY NEBRASKA YOU KNOW WHEN
NEWS CAME DOWN THAT FORMER UFC GREAT, MAURICE SMITH WAS
GETTING BACK INTO THE CAGE. I THINK QUITE A FEW PEOPLE,
INCLUDING MYSELF WERE A LITTLE LEARY OF A 50 YEAR OLD
FIGHTING ONCE AGAIN. WELL LAST WEEKEND THAT
RESURRECTION FIGHTING ALLIANCE’S SECOND
CARD, SMITH TOOK ON A MAN 22 YEARS YOUNGER THAN HIM, A 1
AND 0 FIGHTER JORGE CORDOBA. NOW THIS FIGHT WENT INTO THE
THIRD ROUND CASEY, VERY COMPETITIVE BUT SURE
ENOUGH, MAURICE SMITH GETS THE NASTY HIGHLIGHT REEL HEAD
KICK VICTORY, TALK ABOUT THIS COMEBACK STORY CASEY,
CAUSE IT’S A BIG ONE. IT’S ONE FOR THE AGES. (CASEY) WELL YOU KNOW MAURICE
SMITH IS A LEGEND IN THE SPORT YOU KNOW. HE WAS SINGLE HANDILY
RESPONSIBLE FOR BRINGING STRIKING BACK INTO
RELEVANCE IN THE UFC. YOU KNOW I MEAN THIS IS A GUY
WHO YOU KNOW EVEN AT 50 YEARS OLD HAS RETAINED HIS
POWER, WHICH YOU KNOW THE POWERS THE LAST THING TO
LEAVE YOU. HE COMES BACK AND HE GETS A
BIG WIN, WHICH IS AWESOME. I’M GLAD TO SEE. I AM CONCERNED YOU KNOW THAT
IF ANYTIME A 50 YEAR OLD FIGHTER TRIES TO MAKE THAT
STEP BACK IN YOU KNOW, THE GUY IS ONLY 1 AND 0 THAT HE
FACED. IF HE WERE TO TRY TO MAKE
ANOTHER STEP IN CONTINUING THIS CAREER, IT
COULD BE YOU KNOW BAD NEWS FOR MAURICE SMITH. YOU KNOW BUT FOR WHAT HE DID
AND THIS PUSH BACK YOU KNOW I GIVE HUGE CONGRATS TO
MAURICE SMITH AND I’M ALWAYS HAPPEN TO SEE THE
LEGENDS GO DOWN AND DO BIG THINGS. (CYRUS) IT WAS IMPRESSIVE; YOU
KNOW WE’LL SEE WHAT’S NEXT FOR MO. MAKE SURE YOU GO TO THE
RFAFIGHTING DOT COM THAT’S THE OFFICIAL SITE FOR
RESURRECTION FIGHTING FIGHTS. AS WELL AS WEC VET CHAD GEORGE A GUY THAT IS STILL ON THE RISE. (CYRUS) LET’S GO TO FIGHTING A LITTLE BIT LATER. BUT HERE IT IS IT’S YOUR MMA
INSIDE THE CAGE PUNCH OF THE WEEK. [FIGHT SOUNDS AND CROWD NOISE] [MUSIC] [COMMERCIALS] [MUSIC] (VOICEOVER) MMA INSIDE THE
CAGE BROUGHT TO YOU BY… (CYRUS) WELCOME BACK ROUND TWO
OF MMA INSIDE THE CAGE. YOU KNOW WE’VE TRAVELED THE
COUNTRY FOR THE HOMETOWN THROWDOWN EACH WEEK
AND SOMETIMES WE EVEN GO WORLD WIDE FOR OUR FOOTAGE. BUT THIS TIME WE’RE STAYING
RIGHT HERE IN THE DEEP SOUTH. 3FC 9 WAS LAST WEEKEND AND IT
PROVIDED A BUNCH OF EXCITING FIGHTS INCLUDING YOUR
PUNCH OF THE WEEK WHICH YOU JUST SAW. NOW NOT ONLY DID YOU GET
FIGHTS WITH SOME GUYS THAT ARE GOING PRO, GUYS LIKE CRAIG
JOHNSON, ERIC ROBISON AND THEN OF COURSE YOUR MAIN EVENT
WINNER PRIME TIME ADAM TOWNSEND, BUT THE

HUGE. (CYRUS) IT’S A LOT OF GOOD
STUFF THERE, THAT WAS ACTUALLY THE FIRST MMA SHOW
THAT’S EVER BEEN IN GATLINBURG, WHICH THEY
CONSIDER WHAT LIKE THE VEGAS STRIP OF THE SMOKEY
MOUNTAINS RIGHT? (CASEY) I WAS A LITTLE
CONCERNED ABOUT THE VEGAS STRIP OF THE SMOKEY
MOUNTAINS WHEN I FIRST GOT THERE YOU KNOW BECAUSE I
WAS WALKING THERE AND SEEING ALL THESE FAMILIES AND
I DIDN’T KNOW HOW THEY WERE GOING TO ACCEPT IT. BUT MAN BY FIGHT NIGHT I
LOOKED OUT THERE AND I SAW BAD STREET USA WHEN I LOOKED
(CYRUS) OH YEAH MAN, THERE WAS A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE
YOU KNOW. THIS IS A AMATEUR ORGANIZATION
PRIMARILY CASEY. BUT I’LL TELL YOU WHAT MAN,
ANYONE THAT THINKS THAT AMATEUR MMA CAN’T BE DONE
RIGHT, THAT YOU KNOW THAT IT’S BACK WOODS THAT IT CAN’T
BE DONE RIGHT 3FC IS ONE OF THEM PROMOTIONS THAT WILL
CHANGE YOUR MIND, BECAUSE IT’S DONE WELL AND IT’S DONE
GOOD. (CASEY) TIM AND GENE BOTH PUT
ON AN EXCELLENT SHOW. THEY DO THEIR PART OF COURSE
TIM LOY IS THE MATCHMAKER AND HE PUTS TOGETHER
EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT FIGHTS ALL THE WAY AROUND. YOU KNOW HE MATCHES FOR A LOT
OF PLACES. BUT 3FC IS HIS LIKE MAIN HOME
BASE AND WHEN HE DOES IT YOU KNOW HE TAKES IT VERY,
VERY SERIOUSLY AND YOU KNOW THAT’S HIS BRAGGING RIGHT
THAT SHOW IS IT. (CYRUS) THAT’S TRUE. GENE CLICK’S GREAT AND OF
COURSE THEY HAVE A FANTASTIC RING ANNOUNCER THIS
GUY RIGHT HERE, CYRUS FEES, THAT’S RIGHT. HIRE ME; I’M THE ONE YOU NEED. 3FC THEIR TAKING THE NEXT SHOW

GREAT INTERVIEWS. THIS TIME ITS MIKE THE JOKER

WE’LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE. (MUSIC) (IRIS) I’M HERE WITH CHAD
GEORGE CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR VICTORY TODAY. TELL US YOUR GAME PLAN COMING
IN. I NOTICED YOU STARTED OFF A
LITTLE SLOW, LIKE YOU WERE FEELING OUT THEN YOU GOT
REALLY AGGRESSIVE. HOW WAS IT? WAS THAT PART OF YOUR GAME
PLAN OR YOU JUST ADAPTED? (CHAD) YOU KNOW I KIND OF WAS
JUST KIND OF GOING WITH THE MOMENTUM OF THE FIGHT. WE KNEW HE WAS AN AGGRESSIVE
FIGHTER. HE, WE ACTUALLY THOUGHT HE WAS
GOING TO COME STRAIGHT AT ME. SO I WAS WAITING FOR THAT. SO WHEN WE REALIZED HE WASN’T
DOING EXACTLY WHAT WE THOUGHT THAT WAS MY
OPPORTUNITY TO PICK UP THE PACE AND DO WHAT I DO
BEST, FINISH FIGHTS. (IRIS) YEAH WE DID NOTICE THAT
AND ALSO IT OBVIOUS YOU’RE A FAN FAVORITE. DOES THAT MOTIVATE YOU MORE
WHEN YOUR IN THE FIGHT OR YOU JUST SO CONCENTRATED THAT
YOU DON’T EVEN HEAR THEM CHEERING FOR YOU. (CHAD) OH, ABSOLUTELY, I LOVE
THE FANS. YOU KNOW I’VE BEEN FIGHTING IN
LA SINCE I STARTED AND EVEN THOUGH I’M FROM
SACRAMENTO ORIGINALLY MY FAN BASE HAS BEEN GROWING HERE
IN LA FOR SO LONG AND I TRULY FIGHT FOR THEM; AND I
FEEL THEIR ENERGY WHEN I’M IN THERE. (IRIS) SO WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU? WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT? (CHAD) YOU KNOW I’M DOING
WHATEVER MY MANAGEMENT TELLS ME TO DO. BUT WE’RE REALLY HOPING THAT
THERE’S AN UFC HERE IN AUGUST. YOU KNOW I’VE GOT THREE WINS
IN A ROW. I DON’T THINK THERE’S A BETTER
FIT FOR SOMEBODY TO REPRESENT LA THEN ME WHEN IT
COMES HERE. (IRIS) THERE YOU GO. SO IDEALLY IF YOU COULD CHOOSE
WHO WOULD YOU WANT TO FIGHT NEXT? (CHAD) I DON’T CARE. THE BANTAM WEIGHT DIVISION IS
SO STACKED. ANYONE THAT THEY GIVE ME IS
GOING TO BE ONE **** OF A FIGHT. SO THIS IS WAS ONE FIGHT THAT
I DID AT 145. MY NEXT FIGHT AND EVERYTHING
AFTER WILL BE BACK DOWN AT 135 SO. (IRIS) ALL RIGHT WELL THANK
YOU, AND CONGRATULATIONS. (CHAD) THANK YOU VERY MUCH. (MUSIC) (IRIS) I’M HERE WITH MIKE

KICKS, COMING INTO THE SECOND ROUND YOU JUST TOOK HIM

CLINCH AND WE CAN BREAK HIM THERE AND HE GOES YOU’RE

THERE WE GO. JUST LISTEN TO YOUR CORNER MEN. IF YOU HAVE A VERY GOOD GROUP,
CAMP AND YOU KNOW EACH OTHER IT’S JUST SIMPLE LITTLE
WORDING AND JUST LISTEN AND YOU’LL GET THE JOB DONE SO. (IRIS) YOU KNOW I NOTICED LIKE

YOU’RE GOING TO FIGHT THAT WEIGHT YOU MAKE THE
SACRIFICES TO DO YOUR JOB THAT’S PART OF YOUR JOB. I TAKE IT VERY SERIOUSLY AND I

OR NAGA ARE STILL GOING STRONG WITH REALITY FIGHTING. CASEY THEY PUT TOGETHER A NICE
PRODUCT YOU KNOW THESE GUYS REAL WELL. (CASEY) I DO. I’VE KNOWN JOE AND KIP FOR A
LOT OF YEARS, SOMETHING THEY GOT GOING ON THAT MAKES
REALITY FIGHTING SO SPECIAL IS THAT OF COURSE LIKE YOU
MENTIONED NAGA IS PROBABLY THE BIGGEST GRAPPLING COMPANY
IN THE UNITED STATES DEFINITELY AND WHAT
THEY DO IS THEY POP A LOT OF THOSE GUYS INTO THESE MMA
EVENTS. SO YOU GET GUYS THAT ARE VERY
EXPERIENCED THEY’RE GOOD ATHLETES. THEY’RE SKILLED. IT’S NOT JUST A LOT OF BUMS
OFF THE STREET. (CYRUS) MMM-HMM, WELL JUST A

THE WEEK. (COM1) NO, LET’S SEE WHO GETS
IT DONE TONIGHT, MIKE DEXTER AND PARKER PORTER FOR
THE TITLE. (COM2) IT’S ON NOW. DEXTER LOOKS REALLY CONFIDENT
AND RELAXED. (COM1) KEEPING THOSE HANDS
HIGH GOT THE REACH OVER DEXTER. (COM2) GOOD INSIDE KICK. (COM1) GREAT, GREAT RIGHT BY
PARKER, GOT DEXTER LOOKING FOR THE SHOT RIGHT OFF THE RIP. (COM2) DEXTER’S ALREADY IN
TROUBLE AND HE’S ACTUALLY GRABBING THE WRONG LEG. PARKER PORTER’S GOING TO GO
RIGHT TO THE BACK AND OUT. (COM1) ALRIGHT DEXTER’S GOING
TO TRY, DEXTER HAS NOWHERE TO ROLL. HE’S GOT NOWHERE TO ROLL. HE DID TUCK TIGHT ON THE ARM
BUT HE’S GOT NOWHERE TO ROLL HERE. WHAT DO YOU DOING IF YOUR
DEXTER JOHN? (COM2) OH, YOU GOT TO START TO
TURN YOU GOT TO PLAY SOME GUARD. YOU’VE GOT TO STOP THESE
PUNCHES. (COM1) PARKER SEEMS TO BE THE
BIGGER FIGHTER IN THIS MATCHUP, WHICH I DID NOT
EXPECT TELLING YOU THE TRUTH GOING INTO IT. (COM2) WITHOUT A DOUBT
PARKER’S PRETTY ACTIVE, MOVING AROUND. DEXTER’S JUST GOT NOTHING FOR
HIM RIGHT NOW. (COM1) YOU KNOW THIS IS
SURPRISING SINCE PARKER ALSO FOUGHT AT 205. WOW. (COM2) I WOULD NOT WANT TO BE
IN THERE WITH HIM AT 205. THIS IS IN DANGER OF GETTING
STOPPED, IF DEXTER DOESN’T START TO MOVE. HE’S JUST HOLDING ON. (COM1) I’LL TELL YOU WHAT MIKE
DEXTER IS INTELLIGIBLY DEFENDING AT THIS
POINT. BIG DAN IS A VERY GOOD REFUING. HE DOES KNOW, HE DOES KNOW
WHAT HE’S DOING HERE. BUT YOU’VE GOT A GREAT POINT
THERE JOHN. IF DEXTER DOESN’T START MOVING
AND TRYING TO GET SOMETHING GOING HE’S AT A
CHANCE OF HAVING A HUGE GUY LIKE PARKER STOP HIM. THAT’S A TAP! (COM2) THAT IS A WRAP! (COM1) THAT IS A TAP! (COM2) LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT
THIS. BIG RIGHT HANDS COMING DOWN BY
PORTER. HE DOESN’T HAVE A HOOK SECURED. DEXTER NOT ACTIVE FROM THE
BOTTOM, NOT DEFENDING HIMSELF. I MEAN THERE WAS NOTHING TO DO
BUT STOP THIS. (COM1) IT LOOKED LIKE DEXTER
WANTED OUT OF THERE A LOT QUICKER THAN THAT. (ANNOUNCER) LADIES AND
GENTLEMEN YOUR WINNER BY TKO AND NEW HEAVYWEIGHT
CHAMPION PARKER PORTER! (CROWD CHEERING) (COM1) LET’S

HERE TODAY. WELL YOU KNOW THIS IS BLUE NOT
BLACK BUT LET’S BRING IT ALL HOME CASEY. LET’S GET YOUR CURTAIN CALL
AND SEE WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY. (CASEY) ALL RIGHT, WELL I WAS
READING IN THE HEADLINES THAT RASHAD EVANS WAS RECENTLY
APPROACHED BY A FAN AT AN AUTOGRAPH SIGNING WITH A
LESS THAN SAVORY PHOTO OF HIM BEING KNOCKED OUT BY LYOTO
MACHIDA, NOW OF COURSE HE PROMPTLY WADDED UP THE
PAPER THREW IT AWAY AND SENT THE FAN ON HIS WAY. YOU KNOW WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT
IT, RASHAD EVANS REALLY HANDLED THIS MUCH MORE
PROFESSIONALLY THAN A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD HAVE. YOU KNOW THIS FANS; THEY BY
PAY PER VIEWS AND THEY BUY TICKETS AND THEY PUT THE
SPORT ON THE MAP. BUT REALLY IT’S THE FIGHTERS
THAT BRING THE ACTION TO YOU. THEY WORK HARD. THEY TRAIN HARD AND EVEN WHEN
THEY LOSE THEY PUT IT ALL OUT THERE. SO REMEMBER WHEN YOU’RE OUR
THERE AND YOU SEE THESE GUYS, SHOW A LITTLE BIT OF
RESPECT. BECAUSE PERHAPS THESE FIGHTERS
WHEN YOU APPROACH THEM IN THAT MANNER, WON’T BE QUITE AS
PROFESSIONAL AS RASHAD EVANS WAS ON THAT DAY. (CYRUS) WELL LIKE US ON
