>> ARE YOU READY?

ARE YOU READY?

FIGHT!

SEAN: THE BELL AND ROUND

NUMBER ONE.

JIMMY: YOU SEE THE CONTRAST

THE WAY THEY HOLD THEIR

HANDS.

SHAHBULAT RELYING ON SPEED.

SEAN: THE WINNER SHAMHALAEV

IS FROM RUSSIA.

HE'S IN THE BLACK TRUNKS.

AMERICAN PAT CURRAN IS IN

THE WHITE TRUNKS.

JIMMY: BOTH SIDES

COUNTERPUNCHERS.

I ASKED BOTH GUYS, IF YOU

GUYS ARE STANDING THERE

LOOKING AT EACH OTHER, WHO

IS GOING TO BE THE

INITIATOR.

THAT'S A BIG QUESTION, WHO

IS GOING TO OPEN UP.

SEAN: FIRST KICK TO THE

STOMACH BY CURRAN.

JIMMY: BOTH SIDES ARE

AGGRESSIVE BOXING, BUT

THEY'RE GENERALLY

COUNTERPUNCHES.

SEAN: QUICK INSIDE KICK FROM

SHAMHALAEV.

JIMMY: IF THERE'S A WEAKNESS,

HE TENDS TO BE A SLOW

STARTER.

HE FOUGHT EDDIE ALVAREZ AND

WAS DOWN THREE ROUNDS TO ONE

AND REALLY DIDN'T CHANGE HIS

STYLE.

DIDN'T OPEN UP.

STILL STAYED TIME LOST THE

DECISION.

TIGHT ALMOST TO A FAULT.

SEAN: NOT THROUGH.

JIMMY: BOTH GUYS ARE LOOKING

AT EACH OTHER.

HE'S GOING TO GET OFF A

PUNCH.

SEAN: NICE HEAD KICK.

JIMMY:.

JIMMY: HAVEN'T SEEN A LOT OF

OFFENSIVE TAKEDOWNS FROM

HIM.

SEAN: SHAMHALAEV STAYING

TIGHT WITH HIS HANDS.

JIMMY: THERE IT IS, GREAT

TIMING GOING HARD FOR THE

GUILLOTINE.

CLOSED DOOR GUILLOTINE.

SEAN: THAT IS TIGHT.

JIMMY: HE'S OUT.

SEAN: THAT IS IT!

A TECHNICAL SUBMISSION WIN!

SHAHBULAT SHAMHALAEV WITH

THE CHAMPION PAT CURRAN.

JIMMY: WOULD WE SEE THE

WRESTLING?

WOULD WE SEE THE SUBMISSION?

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE SAW

WITH PAT CURRAN.

MAN, THAT IS BREAD AND

BUTTER, GREAT CHOKES, GREAT

GUILLOTINE, HE USED IT.

SEAN: SHAHBULAT SHAMHALAEV

IS FURIOUS.

REPORTER: THEY CAN SHOW HIM

THE VIDEO IF HE WANTS.

HE WAS OUT.

NO CONTROVERSY THERE.

HE WENT OUT.

HE DOESN'T REMEMBER IT, AND

HE'S UPSET, BUT TAKE A LOOK

AT IT AGAIN.

SHOW THIS REPLAY TO

SHAMHALAEV.

HE'S UPSET.

YOU SEE THERE, GUILLOTINE.

WE GOT THE ARM CAUGHT IN.

THAT'S WHY HE WASN'T ABLE TO

PUT WEIGHT ON IT, NOT ABLE

TO ESCAPE.

LOOK AT THE TORQUE ON THIS

GUILLOTINE.

TRIED TO PUNCH HIS WAY OUT.

JUST MADE HIM PASS OUT

QUICKER.

SEAN: WATCH REFEREE KEITH

PETERSON.

HE'S LOOKING AT THE ARMS OF

SHAMHALAEV.

GREAT JOB BY THE CHAMP, PAT

CURRAN AGAINST HIS TOUGHEST

CHALLENGE.

HE FINISHES HIM IN THE FIRST

ROUND.
