COACHING ME AND HELPING ME
WITH IT. SO I THOUGHT YOU KNOW FOR THIS
EPISODE I’D BE ABLE TO KICK
THAT ONE OUT. (CYRUS) OKAY, THAT WAS TRASH. THIS WEEK WE TOOK FULL PREVIEW

FIRST PRO-EVENT EVER TO HIT
KINGSPORT YOU KNOW, HEADLINE BY LEN COOK, DANIEL
CROCKETT, TYLER MINTON AND
JOSH BOOHER, THIS IS GOING TO BE A GREAT SHOW. OF COURSE A GREAT UNDERCARD

GUY IS A CLASS ACT, OUR SECOND
HALL OF FAMER FOR AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW MAN. I’M SO EXCITED TO GET THIS
THING ON AIR. (CYRUS) IT’S GOING TO BE GREAT. NOW BEFORE WE GET INTO CAGE
BRAWL AND DAN SEVERN. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE BIG
NEWS OF THIS WEEK; AND THAT OF
COURSE IS CRIS “CYBORG” SANTOS THE STRIKEFORCE 145
POUND CHAMPION TESTING
POSITIVE FOR A PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUG. THE DRUG IS WINDSTROL. IT’S AN OVER THE COUNTER DRUG
IN MOST COUNTRIES, BUT IT IS
AN ANABOLIC STEROID. NOW CASEY YOU’VE BEEN IN THE
BUSINESS FOR A WHILE, YOU’VE
BEEN A TRAINER, YOU’VE BEEN ALL THIS, WHAT EXACTLY IS
WINDSTROL, WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS? (CASEY) WELL I MEAN IT’S NO
SURPRISE THAT ATHLETES ACROSS
THE WORLD HAVE BEEN USING THIS DRUG FOR MANY, MANY
YEARS. IT IS ANABOLIC, YOU KNOW
TYPICALLY SPEAKING IT IS ONE
OF THOSE AGENTS THAT HELPS YOU TO MAINTAIN
YOURE CARDIOVASCULAR, YOU
KNOW IT’S NOT A BODY BUILDING DRUG. BUT IT IS A PERFORMANCE
ENHANCING DRUG, NO LESS AND IT
IS YOU KNOW ILLEGAL IN THE UNITED STATES
AND IN THE UFC IN MIXED
MARTIAL ARTS; AND IT JUST VERY UNFORTUNATE THAT SHE GOT
POPPED WITH IT BECAUSE IT’S
GOING TO CHANGE THE FACE OF WOMEN’S MIXED MARTIAL
ARTS. (CYRUS) THIS IS TRUE. WHILE DANA WHITE WASTED NO
TIME IN STRIPPING CYBORG OF
THE TITLE, NOW HE’S SAYING THAT WHOLE 145 POUND
DIVISION WHICH PRETTY MUCH
CONSISTED OF CYBORG IS GOING TO BE OUT. NOW HOW FAR DOES THIS SET BACK
THE SPORT OF MMA FOR WOMEN? (CASEY) WELL YOU KNOW, ONE
MIGHT SAY THAT YOU KNOW IT’S A
STEAK IN THE HEART; BUT FOR ME, I MEAN YOU KNOW
YOU’VE GOT RONDA ROUSEY. YOU’VE GOT MIESHA TATE. YOU’VE GOT GINA CARANO STILL
LULLING AROUND. YOU KNOW DANA WHITE SAID HE
WOULD TAKE HER BACK IN A NEW
YORK MINUTE. SO YOU KNOW IT DEFINITELY,
WOMEN’S MMA IS DEFINITELY
STILL ON THE RISE. (CYRUS) SURE (CASEY) AND SO
YOU KNOW I HAVE FAITH IN IT. (CYRUS) OKAY AND NOT TO
MENTION YOU KNOW INVICTA
FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP IS ON THE HORIZON
AND THAT’S ANOTHER ONE THAT
CAN MAKE SOME REALLY BIG WAVES, JANET MARTIN. (CASEY) OH ABSOLUTELY MAN. OF COURSE JANET WAS IN TALKS
WITH MARLOES COENEN AND HAD
HER SIGN BEFORE, YOU KNOW. SO YOU MIGHT SEE THAT AND HEY
YOU MIGHT EVEN SEE THAT FREE
AGENT IN CYBORG SANTOS COME ABOARD WITH INVICTA. (CYRUS) COULD YOU IMAGINE HOW
BIG OF A SPLASH THAT WOULD
MAKE, IF SHE PICKED UP CYBORG. WELL I’LL TELL YOU WHAT THAT’S
BIG NEWS AND WE GOT SOME BIG
STUFF GOING ON THIS EPISODE. WE’RE GOING TO GET INTO THE
VALLEY FIGHT LEAGUE SHOW,
WHERE YOUR GUY HAD A VERY GOOD SHOWING, NATE JOLLY WE
ALSO GOT THE INTERVIEW WITH
DAN “THE BEAST” SEVERN. WE’RE ALSO GOING TO TALK ABOUT
CAGE BRAWL NUMBER 8 THAT GOES
DOWN FRIDAY JANUARY 27TH IN KINGSPORT TENNESSEE. BUT RIGHT NOW LET’S GET TO IT
IT’S YOUR MMA INSIDE THE CAGE
PUNCH OF THE WEEK. [FIGHT] [CROWD CHEERS] [MUSIC] [COMMERCIALS] [COMMERCIALS] [COMMERCIALS] [MUSIC] (VOICE OVER) MMA INSIDE THE
CAGE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY… (CYRUS) WELCOME BACK TO MMA
INSIDE THE CAGE–CYRUS FEES ALONGSIDE CASEY OXENDINE, AND
OF COURSE WE’LL BE PREVIEWING
CAGE BRAWL 8 THAT’S GOING DOWN FRIDAY JANUARY 27TH IN
KINGSPORT TENNESSEE. WE GOT A FULL PREVIEW COMING
UP NEXT ROUND. BUT RIGHT NOW WE WANT TO TALK
ABOUT THE FIRST MMA EVENT THAT
WENT DOWN IN WEST VIRGINIA. YOU WERE THERE, VALLEY FIGHT
LEAGUE THE BEGINNING, LIONELL
ROYER WAS THERE PUTTING THAT ON. BUTCH HILES WHO HAS BUTCH
HILES MMA AND WAS A GREAT
EVENT, A LOT OF BIG FIGHTS. CASEY YOU HAVE ONE OF YOUR
GUYS OUT THERE, “LADIES LOVE”
NATE JOLLY AND HE GOT BACK ON THE WINNING TRACK TALK
ABOUT THAT FIGHT A LITTLE BIT. (CASEY) WELL MAN YOU KNOW HE
FACED ADAM MAYS WHO IS A VERY,
VERY TOUGH GUY. YOU KNOW THEY HAD BILLED HIM
AS THE BEST FIGHTER YOU’VE
NEVER HEARD OF. YOU KNOW AND HE DID IT MAN. HE LASTED THREE ROUNDS WITH
NATE. NATE PICKED UP THE UNANIMOUS
DECISION. WE WERE HAPPY TO GET HIM BACK
ON THE WINNING TRACK. HE LOOKED FANTASTIC AND WE’RE
READY FOR BIG AND BETTER YOU
KNOW BIG AND BETTER THINGS. (CYRUS) LET’S TALK ABOUT,
ABOUT THE EVENT, VALLEY FIGHT
LEAGUE. YOU KNOW THEY WENT OUT THERE,
WENT OUT ON A LIMB AND DID THE
FIRST EVENT IN WEST VIRGINIA. HOW DID IT ALL GO AND HOW DID
EVERYTHING COME THROUGH? (CASEY) WELL THIS IS IT, YOU
KNOW I SPOKE WITH, WITH BUTCH
HILES AND LIONELL BOTH; AND THEY WERE, THEY WERE SO
ADAMANT ABOUT HOW DIFFICULT IT
WAS TO PUT IT TOGETHER, YOU KNOW CAUSE IT’S
THE FIRST ONE. SO YOU KNOW THERE WERE A LOT
OF RULES PUT IN PLACE. ONE THEY HAD TO HAVE ALL OF
THE HUGE SCREENS. THEY HAD TO HAVE A, YOU KNOW
AT LEAST 1500 CAPACITY YOU
KNOW TO GET THIS THING OFF THE GROUND. THE STATE REQUIRED IT; AND I
THINK WHAT THEIR WANTING IS
YOU KNOW THEY’RE MAKING THIS TRANSITION FROM BOXING
AND TOUGH MAN INTO MMA. THEY WANT TO SEE MMA SUCCEED
ON A GRAND SCALE. SO THEY’RE NOT GOING TO ALLOW
YOU TO PUT ON A, YOU KNOW HALF
WAY LEVEL SHOW. (CYRUS) SURE (CASEY) SO THESE
ARE GOING TO BE VERY, VERY
GOOD QUALITY EVENTS AND I THINK THERE’S GOING TO BE A
LOT GOING ON IN THE FUTURE FOR
WEST VIRGINIA AS FAR AS THE CARD IT WAS AN ALL
PRO-EVENT, THEIR, THEY, THIS
IS ANOTHER STIPULATION THAT WEST VIRGINIA
SAYS THAT THERE WOULD BE NO
AMATEUR FIGHT. IT WOULD BE ALL PRO AND IT WAS
EXCITING. YOU KNOW WE GOT TO SEE THE
RETURN OF ADAM SEPULVEDA, GREG
MAYNARD, A BELLATOR VET SHOW BACK UP THERE AND OF
COURSE FORMER KING OF THE CAGE
CHAMPION BILLY AYASH WAS ON HAND. (CYRUS) WOW THAT’S FANTASTIC. NOW SO VIP’S WERE IN THE HOUSE
FOR THAT, YOU HAD DUSTIN
HAZELETT WAS THERE, THAT WAS A
BIG MOVE. JORGE GURGEL WAS THERE
FROM STRIKEFORCE AND THEN OF COURSE THERE WAS ONE
VIP THAT YOU HAD TO GET THE INTERVIEW FROM AND
THAT IS DAN “THE BEAST” SEVERN. TALK ABOUT THAT INTERVIEW IT
WAS PRETTY FANTASTIC. (CASEY) YEAH THE BEAST WAS
THERE MAN. HE WAS JUST A GENTLEMAN; YOU
KNOW ALL AROUND NICE GUY, IS
WHAT HE SAID AND YOU KNOW IT WAS A LOT OF FUN MAN. YOU KNOW I WAS SHAKING LIKE A
LEAF BEFORE I WENT IN THERE
BECAUSE HE’S A GUY I’VE BEEN WATCHING SINCE THE VERY START. (CYRUS) COME ON MAN, YOU GOT
SHAMROCK NOW, RANDLEMAN; YOU
WERE SHAKING FOR DAN SEVERN. (CASEY) THAT’S TWO HALL OF
FAMERS MAN AND I JUST (CYRUS)
LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT IT RIGHT NOW. WE DON’T HAVE A SECOND FIGHT
FOR YOU BUT LET’S GO AHEAD AND
GIVE YOU A TASTE OF WHAT YOU CAN SEE ON THIS DAN SEVERN
INTERVIEW WHICH WE’RE GOING TO
HAVE THE FULL VERSION AVAILABLE ON OUR YOUTUBE PAGE. HERE IT IS THIS IS MMA INSIDE
THE CAGE. (CASEY) ALRIGHT CASEY OXENDINE
WITH MMA INSIDE THE CAGE RIGHT
HERE WITH THE HALL OF FAMER. WE’RE TALKING TO UFC HALL OF
FAMER, ALSO ARIZONA STATE
WRESTLING HALL OF FAMER AND A FORMER WORLD CHAMPION. HOW ARE YOU DOING TODAY DAN? (DAN) DOING GOOD HERE CASEY,
AND YOURSELF? (CASEY) ABSOLUTELY. WELL I’M DOING GREAT. IT’S GREAT TO BE ABLE TO SIT
HERE AND PICK YOUR BRAIN A
LITTLE BIT. YOU KNOW I WANT TO GO BACK TO
THE VERY FIRST UFC, WHAT I
CALL THE GOLDEN YEARS AND DURING THAT TIME THERE WERE
VERY, VERY COLORFUL GROUP OF
GUYS, YOU KNOW? YOU KNOW ROYCE GRACIE; HE WAS
THE JIU JITSU GUY AND THE GEA. YOU KNOW YOU HAD KEN SHAMROCK
WHO WAS THE SHOE FIGHTER. YOU HAD THE PIT FIGHTER, TANK
ABBOTT, THE RUSSIAN OLEG
TAKTAROV, AND THEN YOU HAD THE GRECO ALL AMERICAN IT WAS DAN
SEVERN. SO WHAT I’D LIKE TO DO IS KIND
OF FIND OUT WHAT WAS IN YOUR
HEAD WAY BACK THEN, YOU KNOW WHEN YOU WERE ABOUT TO STEP
INTO THE CAGE, THE FIRST TIME
IN 1994 WITH ANTHONY MACIAS. YOU KNOW NO GLOVES, HARDLY ANY
RULES, WHAT WAS IT LIKE? (DAN) WELL I GUESS MAYBE TO
EDUCATE SOME OF THE VIEWERS
RIGHT NOW, FROM WHAT, WHAT THEY’VE WATCHED ON
TELEVISION TODAY, MIXED
MARTIAL ARTS IT HAS APPROXIMATELY37 RULES. PART OF THOSE 37 RULES ARE
WEIGHT CLASSES. THEY ARE TIME PERIODS AND THEY
FACE ONE OPPONENT IN A GIVEN
EVENING. BACK WHEN I FIRST BEGAN IT WAS
KNOWN AS A NO HOLDS BARRED ERA. NO HOLDS BARRED ERA, YOU HAD
TWO RULES THAT YOU HAD TO
ABIDE BY; AND THOSE RULES BEING DO NOT BITE YOUR OPPONENT. DO NOT STICK YOUR FINGERS IN
THE EYE SOCKETS, END OF THE
RULES. ANYTHING THAT YOU COULD
POSSIBLY THINK OF, YOU WERE
GOOD TO GO AND LET YOUR IMAGINATION GO WILD
AS TO WHAT THAT ALL MEANS. NOW KEN SHAMROCK WAS VERY
ADAMANT, THAT HE ACTUALLY FELT
THAT PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUGS, STEROIDS
SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN
PROFESSIONAL SPORTS AS LONG AS MONITORED BY A PHYSICIAN. SO WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO IS
GET YOUR TAKE ON THE PED’S AND
THE SITUATION. (DAN) A LOT OF TIMES, A LOT OF
PEOPLE BRING UP A LOT OF
QUESTIONS ABOUT KEN AND MYSELF, YOU KNOW WE HAD A FEW MATCHES
AND IT WAS ACTUALLY THE
ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP THAT PROBABLY BROUGHT THOUGHT
THERE WAS THIS ON GOING FEUD. I MEAN HONESTLY I REALLY DON’T
EVEN KNOW KEN. I’VE NEVER HAD THIS TYPE OF
ONE ON ONE TYPE OF A
CONVERSATION WITH HIM BEFORE. WHATEVER TIME WE SPENT WAS
INSIDE OF A CAGE AND YOU
WEREN’T EXACTLY EXCHANGING PLEASANTRIES AT THE TIME, HOW
IS THE WIFE AND KIDS, OHH! PRETTY GOOD, NO HOW WAS NAH,
NOPE SO. I THINK THAT’S ONE REASON WHY
I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ONE MORE
MATCH MAYBE WITH ROYCE, MARK COLEMAN, AND KEN SHAMROCK. I HAVE VERY FEW LOSES BUT WHEN
YOU LOOK AT THE TIME ERA WHEN
MOST OF MY LOSSES OCCURRED IT WAS PRIOR TO THE DRUG TESTING. I CREDIT MYSELF A GREAT DEAL
THAT ALL OF MY, ALL OF MY
SUCCESS THAT I’VE HAD I’VE ACHIEVED ON MY OWN ABILITY. I DID NOT HAVE TO TAKE A PILL. I DID NOT HAVE TO TAKE A SHOT. I KNOW THAT I’M A TRUE
CHAMPION; AND IN SO MANY
DIFFERENT WAYS. AS I SAID I WOULDN’T MIND
DOING A COUPLE MORE MATCHES. ONE MORE WITH KEN SHAMROCK
ONLY BECAUSE I THINK IT’S
MARKETABLE IN THE SENSE THAT HE WON A MATCH, I WON A
MATCH, LET’S DO THE OLD RUBBER
MATCH RIGHT NOW. YOU KNOW AND I HAVE NO PROBLEM
BEING TESTED. THE ONLY SAUCE YOU WILL EVER
FIND ON ME, YOU MIGHT FIND A
LITTLE SPAGHETTI SAUCE OVER HERE OR SOMETHING LIKE
THAT UP IN THE STASH, BUT THAT
WILL BE ABOUT THE ONLY KIND OF SAUCE YOU’LL FIND EVER
IN MY SYSTEM AND I WOULD
ACTUALLY LIKE TO YOU KNOW JUST
TO DO THAT ONE LAST HURRAH WITH
HIM, NO AX TO THE GRIND LIKE I
STATED EARLIER. I STARTED OFF REALLY STRONG IN
THIS SPORT. I’VE HAD A VERY LONG CAREER
WITH IT. I JUST WANT TO FINISH IT OFF
WITH A STRONG FASHION AND THEN
MORE OR LESS BE DONE WITH THAT PHASE OF LIFE AND
MOVE ON TO THE NEXT PHASE. [MUSIC] [COMMERCIALS] [COMMERCIALS] [MUSIC] (VOICE OVER) MMA INSIDE THE
CAGE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY… (CYRUS) WELCOME BACK, IT’S THIRD ROUND ACTION AND WE’RE
PREVIEWING THE BIG CAGE BRAWL
8 CARD ON FRIDAY JANUARY 27TH FROM THE
MEADOWVIEW CONVENTION CENTER
IN KINGSPORT. LET’S TALK ABOUT CAGE BRAWL 8
CASEY. THIS IS A BIG TIME EVENT FOR
THE CITY OF KINGSPORT. I MEAN BRISTOL HAD THEIR PRO
EVENT, JOHNSON CITY’S HAD
THEIRS. YOU PUT THAT ONE ON AND THIS
IS A BIG DEAL FOR THE CITY. (CASEY) YEAH, YOU KNOW
EVERYBODYS COMING TOGETHER
FOR THIS TO PUSH THE PRO EVENTS. YOU KNOW IT’S EVERYONE’S
RESPONSIBILITY TO GET
TOGETHER, MAKE SURE THAT THE TICKETS GET SOLD BECAUSE
IT’S NOT CHEAP. YOU KNOW CAGE BRAWL’S REALLY
GOING OUT ON A LIMB TO PROMOTE
THIS EVENT AND I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE FANTASTIC. (CYRUS) WELL IT’S JUST THAT
THEY’VE BEEN AROUND SO LONG,
THAT HAS TO SPEAK TO SOMETHING. I MEAN EIGHT OF THEIR CAGE
BRAWL SHOWS PLUS THE ONE THEY
DO IN APPALACHIA, THAT’S NINE EVENTS THAT’S
PRETTY IMPRESSIVE FOR ANY MMA
EVENT TO BE AROUND THAT LONG. (CASEY) YEAH, IT’S NOT EASY
MAN AND KNOWING FROM PERSONAL
EXPERIENCE EVERY TIME YOU PROMOTE AN EVENT YOU GO
OUT ON A LIMB, WHEN YOU START
ADDING PRO-SANCTIONING, PRO-INSURANCE YOU KNOW IT ADDS
SO MUCH TO IT; AND SO I’M
VERY, VERY HAPPY TO SEE PRO-FIGHTING YOU KNOW HERE IN
KINGSPORT. (CYRUS) SURE, NOW WE KNOW
ABOUT ALL THESE BIG FIGHTS,
I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU THE CARD RIGHT HERE. IT’S UP ON THE SCREEN. BIG TIME LOADED CARD HERE AS
FAR AS THE PROS. YOU’RE LOOKING AT YOUR GUY
MAIN EVENT, THAT’S TYLER
MINTON AGAINST AMAECHI OSELUKWUE, I KNOW HOW TO SAY
HIS NAME NOW I’VE PRONOUNCED
IT A COUPLE OF TIMES. (CASEY) AKA THE NOTORIOUS AO. (CYRUS) THAT’S GOING TO BE A
GOOD FIGHT. YOU GOT DANIEL CROCKETT, SHANE
MATCHETTE THAT’S GOING TO BE
GOOD. LEN COOK, BRANDON MCMAHAN
THAT’S GOING TO BE ANOTHER ONE
AND THEN JOSH BOOHER AND JAY MENEGHELLO. TALK ABOUT THESE FIGHTS, WHAT
FIGHT IS LIKE STICKING OUT TO
YOU? OF COURSE YOU KNOW TYLER’S IS
CAUSE YOU’RE HIS COACH. BUT WHAT FIGHTS REALLY
STICKING OUT TO YOU MAYBE THE
SLEEPER FIGHT AND THAT TAKES IT ALL. (CASEY) WELL LEN COOK, MCMAHAN
IS GOING TO BE BETTER THAN
WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK. YOU KNOW LEN IS DEFINITELY THE
FAVORITE IN THAT FIGHT. BUT MCMAHAN IS A VERY SCRAPPY
TOUGH DUDE AND THE WORD IS
THAT HE REALLY WANTS THIS FIGHT. HE’S TAKING IT VERY SERIOUSLY. HE’S COMING TO FIGHT. I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE A
FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE BY BOTH
GUYS. BUT YOU KNOW THE MENEGHELLO,
JOSH BOOHER FIGHT IS ANOTHER
ONE MAN. JOSH BOOHER IS AN INCREDIBLE
ATHLETE. ONCE AGAIN HE IS PICKED TO WIN
THIS FIGHT, BUT MENEGHELLO HAS
PROVEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN THAT HE HAS STAYING POWER. YOU KNOW A TOUGH, STRONG GUY
AND HE’S BEATEN SOME REALLY
GOOD GUYS. GUYS THAT HE SHOULDNT BEAT. SO THAT’S ANOTHER ONE THAT I’M
VERY EXCITED ABOUT. (CYRUS) WELL I KNOW WITH THIS
FIGHT YOU KNOW YOU GOT KIND OF
THE XFC LOOMING HERE IN JUST LIKE A MONTH OR SO AND
YOURE TALKING ABOUT LEN COOK
GOING AGAINST CHRIS WRIGHT. SO HE HAD TO GET READY FOR
THAT AND THEN OF COURSE YOU’VE
GOT TYLER MINTON TAKING ON SHANE MATCHETTE,
WHICH HE’S GOING TO BE ABLE TO
SEE HIM FIRST HAND AND SEE WHAT HE’S ALL ABOUT,
SEE WHAT KIND OF SHAPE HE’S IN. DO YOU THINK THAT’S GOING TO
BE A PROBLEM THESE GUYS
GETTING READY FOR THOSE FIGHTS COMING UP, MAYBE GETTING TOO
EXCITED ABOUT THAT MAYBE
OVERLOOKING THEIR OPPONENTS? (CASEY) WELL YOU KNOW WE WERE
JUST TALKING ABOUT THAT AND
IT’S VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU LOOK DIRECTLY AHEAD OF YOU. YOU KNOW IF YOU’RE ON A 100
MILE TRIP YOU KNOW YOU’VE
STILL GOT LOOK 40 FEET AHEAD OF YOU BECAUSE THAT’S
ALL THE ROAD THAT YOU HAVE IN
FRONT, YOU KNOW. SO YOU CAN’T GO YOU KNOW
THINKING ABOUT THE XFC OR
ANYTHING LIKE THAT, YOU’VE GOT TO SEE WHAT’S IN
FRONT OF YOU AND TAKE THAT
CHALLENGE AS IT COMES AND I THINK THAT’S WHAT THESE GUYS
ARE GOING TO DO. THEY’RE ALL PROFESSIONALS AND
I THINK THAT THEY’RE GOING TO
GO INTO CAGE BRAWL AND THEY’RE GOING TO YOU KNOW PUT
THEIR WHOLE HEART AND SOUL
INTO IT. (CYRUS) SURE, I THINK IT’S
GOING TO BE GREAT. OF COURSE YOU HAVE SOME GREAT
STUFF ON THE UNDERCARD AS

KNOXVILLE. HE’S A VERY WELL ROUNDED
FIGHTER, REAL TOUGH; AND FROM
WHAT I HEAR HE’S REAL HUNGARY. HE’S BEEN TRAINING HARD. HE’S BEEN SCOUTING ME FOR A
WHILE. APPARENTLY HE’S BEEN WANTING

SOMEBODY WHO REALLY WANTS TO
BRING IT TO ME AND CHALLENGE ME. SO I’M EXCITED. (CYRUS) NOW YOU WERE IN HIS
SHOES NOT TO LONG AGO, MAKING

THAT PRO-DEBUT TO MAKE THAT
NEXT STEP. DO YOU FEEL LIKE THAT’S GOING
TO BE SOMETHING TO WORRY ABOUT
WITH HIM COMING OUT TRYING TO YOU KNOW GET THAT FIRST PRO
WIN? (LEN) WELL I DON’T THINK SO
BECAUSE WHEN I DID MY PRO
DEBUT IT DIDN’T FEEL ANY DIFFERENT. IT WAS TAKING THE NEXT STEP UP
BUT IT STILL FELT LIKE A FIGHT. I MEAN THIS IS SOMETHING I
ENJOY DOING. I LOVE DOING IT AND I WON’T TO
PROGRESS IN THE SPORT BUT
BOTTOM LINE IS THIS IS SOMETHING I WANT TO DO. SO IT DIDN’T REALLY FEEL VERY
MUCH DIFFERENT. HE WILL BE FACING AMAECHI

PRETTY TOUGH GUY. WE WERE SUPPOSED TO FIGHT
BEFORE MY FIRST PROFESSIONAL
FIGHT AND HE BACKED OUT AND I HAD TO FIND A
REPLACEMENT. HE’S A REAL TOUGH GUY, I DON’T
KNOW WHAT THE SITUATION WAS
BACK THEN BUT I CAN’T WAIT. (CYRUS) WELL IT’S A BIG STEP
UP IN COMPETITION. I’M TALKING ABOUT A GUY THAT
CAN JUST GRIND IT OUT. IT SEEMS LIKE EVERY WIN HE HAS
THE BRAWLER. HE GRINDS OUT HIS WINS, PRETTY
TOUGH WRESTLING, HOW DO YOU
FEEL LIKE YOUR SKILL SET GOES AGAINST HIS? (JOSH) I THINK I DEFIANTLY
HAVE A LITTLE BIT MORE SKILL,
ABOVE ALL I KNOW I HAVE MORE HEART. BUT THEN IT JUST GOES TO WHO
WANTS IT THE MOST AND WHO’S
PUT THE TIME IN TO GET IT. [MUSIC] [COMMERCIALS] [MUSIC] (VOICE OVER) MMA INSIDE THE
CAGE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY… (CYRUS) WELL IT’S TIME TO
CLOSE THIS ONE OUT. ONCE AGAIN GO TO
CAGEBRAWLFIGHTS DOT COM AND PICK UP YOU’RE TICKETS FOR
CAGE BRAWL 8, ON FRIDAY
JANUARY 27TH FROM THE MEADOWVIEW CONVENTION CENTER
IN KINGSPORT TENNESSEE. WELL TO CLOSE OUT AN EPISODE
WE GOT TO HAVE YOUR CURTAIN
CALL CASEY, TAKE IT AWAY. (CASEY) ALRIGHT THANK YOU CYRUS. YOU KNOW WHILE I WAS OUT IN
VEGAS A COUPLE OF WEEKS BACK,
YOU KNOW I WAS STUDYING UP AND I WAS TRYING TO SEE
WHAT MADE THE LAS VEGAS FIGHT
SEEM SO SUCCESSFUL MAN. IT SEEMS LIKE A HOT BED FOR
MMA FIGHTING AND BESIDES THE
UFC BEING ON LOCATION, WHAT I NOTICED WAS IS THAT ALL
OF THE TEAMS ARE TRAINING
TOGETHER, OKAY UNIFIED. SO YOU HAD TEAM VON, YOU HAD
TAPOUT. YOU HAD XTREME COUTURE, AND
EVEN THE ROBERT DRYSDALE GUYS
ALL CROSS TRAINING WITH EACH OTHER. OF COURSE WHEN THEY WENT TO
FIGHT THEY WRAPPED THEIR HOME
TEAM BUT WHAT THEY GOT WAS A LOT OF EXPERIENCE AND A
LOT OF TRAINING WITH GUYS THAT
THEY NORMALLY DON’T GET TO WORK OUT WITH, WITH THAT BEING
SAID I THINK IT’S A GREAT IDEA
FOR ALL THE SMALLER GYMS ACROSS AMERICA TO COME
TOGETHER IN YOUR LOCAL REGIONS. GET THAT TRAINING TOGETHER AND
THEN TAKE IT TO A NATIONAL
LEVEL. I THINK IF YOU DO THAT WE’RE
GOING TO SEE A LOT OF GROWTH
AND YOU CAN EVEN SEE WORLD CHAMPIONS FROM THE SMALLEST
REGIONS IN AMERICA MAKE IT BIG
TIME. (CYRUS) A VERY GOOD POINT
CASEY AND IT’S TIME TO CLOSE
THIS ONE OUT AND WE WANT TO TELL YOU TO GO TO
FACEBOOK DOT COM, FIND US, AND
LIKE US. FOLLOW US AT MMAITC, SUBSCRIBE
