JAG Organization is proud to present: Gladitorius Maximus II
Hello JAGsters, I'm your host for the evening, Ebay, and we're going to speak with four of the top stars in the very deep 205lb division. We'll also have our special guest, the owner of JAG himself, Mr. Nate Baker! But first, on to our first and exclusive interviews with our weekend's warriors.
Thay Budo v Gunna Win
Ebay- Hi Gunna. It's great to have you here and like everyone I'm looking forward to this fight. You're going up against a beast. Thay Budo is considered by most to be one of the pound for pound best fighters in the JAG. Six and oh and all by KO. You are five and oh and all by KO. Is this fight about who lands the first big punch or is there something else that separates you two great fighters?
Gunna- Hey there Ebay. First things first, id like to give a big FUCK YOU to my manager for taking time off right before my best friend Punch Drunk's big fight. Not only costing him his fight but his title as well. Also costing me days of important training. Back on topic though, this fight is gunna be a big one and honestly it could go either way. We both got deadly hands standing up and he might have me when it comes to wrestling but i dont think either one of us wanna go that route. Its going to be about who's got the better chin, not who can throw the hardest punch. So ill say this. That is my title and im GUNNA WIN.
Ebay- Excellent story Gunna. I'm sure the fans are really enjoying the controversy in your camp. That's what sells my friend. Good job! Your next opponent can fight on his feet. He's shown that already but he's also got a very impressive wrestling game. Do you think you can survive his ground and pound should the fight go there?
Gunna- If he wants to go to the ground then bring it but like i said already i bet neither one of us wanna go that route so its gunna be a slug fest.
Ebay- Hahahahahaha. I'm sorry, please excuse me, but every time I hear the words, slug fest, I just immagine two giant slugs, hahahaha, SLUGGING it out! Hahahahahahah! haha, ha, haaaaa. Okay, I'm back into professional mode again ladies and gentlemen. Now, back to Gunna. Tell us, why should fans place their bets on you at the bookies for this Saturday's fight and not on the champ, Thay Budo?
Gunna- They should place their bets on me because im GUNNA WIN!!!
That seems familiar to me. Perhaps you and your best friend should spend a little LESS time together moving forward. Just saying.
Ebay- Hi Thay. You are considered by many to be one of the best pound for pound fighters in the JAG. Yet, this Saturday at Galditorious Maximus II!!!, you will be facing an equally impressive opponent coming off five straight, first round knock outs in Gunna Win. In your opinion, what separates you two fighters? Is it you strength? Toughness? Wrestling skills?
Thay- Hey Ebay what's up bro ? Yeah a lot of people tell this but everyone knows me I'm not looking at the ranking and making a huge noise about it I just like to fight and knock people out. As for Gunna Win this man is a beast, there is nothing else to say but I am another kind of monster, and I can tell you this fight won't go to the distance. He said he will kick my ass but I don't think he is really ready for what it's going to happen this Saturday.
Ebay- Yes!!! What he said. I just like to fight and knock people out. That's great! Classic!!! My next question is two-part yet simple and to the point. Does the match go beyond the first round and is it better for you if it does?
Thay- Like I just said before, I don't think we will go to the distance, we are both powerful guys and we never went to the second round excepted for my last fight against Bobby Dee which was also undefeated before facing me.
Ebay- Hmm, that's true but I think most everyone would agree that Punch is a very different kind of fighter. I for one can't wait to see who wins it. Eleven fights between the two of you and eleven KOs. I suspect this fight to end the same way. If you were a betting man, whom would you bet on to continue their streak?
Thay- Did you really ask this question???!
Thank you everybody see you all on Saturday for the show
Ebay- Yeah I guess I did ask that question and in retrospect I kind of regret it. I was tired when I wrote it and it sounded better in my head.
Anywayyyyyyy, let's move on to our next fight, shall we?
Bobby Dee v Taavi Mottus
Ebay- Hi Bobby. You're coming off of a heartbreaking defeat at JBL 3 where you lost the belt to Budo by TKO in the second round. Do you think that defeat has made you a better fighter and if so, how?
Bobby- Hello Ebay, sorry it took so long to answer your questions but I was really busy grinding each day ever since I lost the title shot at JBL 3. I treat each fight seriously and it doesn't matter who my opponent is.
Ebay- That's good to hear Bobby. I like to see a fighter that can bounce back from a tough defeat. It shows character. Your opponent in this fight, Taavi Mottus, Has very good Muay Thai skills and is a decent wrestler but he has zero BJJ skills. That would lead many to believe that your advantage in this fight would be there but your six wins all came by either KO or TKO. Will this be the fight where we finally witness your BJJ?
Bobby- I always go for the KO and make my opponents kneel before the Sovereign.
Ebay- Trump? Putin? Ohhhh, youuu, I mean ahhh, Do you have anything you'd like to say to your opponent or you fans before the fight?
Bobby- This time I go to the match with more rage, knowing I got humiliated during my last fight.
Ebay- I understand and humility is a trait I respect in a fighter. Well done Bobby and good luck.
Ebay- Hi Taavi. So, after only three fights you're facing the former champ Bobby Dee at Gladitorius Maximus II. How are you feeling heading into the fight and do you feel you're ready to face the more experienced fighter?
Taavi- Hi Ebay, good to see you. Firstly, I'd like to say thanks to Nate and the JAG staff for giving me this opportunity to fight in the JAG League. My previous fights have all been in the QFC, so I cant wait to get started in this org and hope to replicate the form of my colleagues from Andreas' team. It's true that I haven't fought much competition up to now, and I undoubtedly have much to learn, but I am looking forward to trying to prove myself against Bobby. I have spoken at length with Andreas and the other guys and hope i have enough to come through this one too.
Ebay- Well all the Jagsters and myself welcome you here but yeah, the difference in the level of competition is huge but you look like the type of fighter who can make the leap. It all depends on your game plan and execution. You're obviously more of a stand up fighter, though your wrestling skills are respectable, his are better and he has very good BJJ even if we've only heard about it and have never seen it. Does this threat make you hesitate about moving into a clinch where he could potentially take you to the mat?
Taavi- I have to be worried about his ground game, and obviously don't want to get involved in that sort of fight. The clinch could be interesting, but i have to back my power and hope that will give me the edge to slow him down and let me get close enough to take him out.
Ebay- Do you have anything you'd like to say to your opponent or you fans before the fight?
Taavi- I don't know Bobby, but I hope he fights well, just not as well as me... Whatever happens, I am looking forward to the fight, and am confident in securing the result i want.
I'm sure you do Taavi and we all wish you the best and good luck in the fight. Next, we have our special guest, Nate Baker!!!
Ebay- Hi Boss. It's good to see you again. Here's your coffee liked you asked and I assure you my shoes are clean. So, big night coming up at Galditorius Maximus II. This is and incredible card as we have three title fights. That's huge and there is the big big fight between the two undefeated beasts, Budo versus Win. What are your thoughts on this match?
Nate- Hey bro, I'd like to start by saying thanks for the opportunity for my fighters and myself to voice our opinions and thoughts. This next event is going to be a big one. Huge implications on rankings and contenders. Now, let's cut to the chase. Budo and Win are two alpha males. I can't wait for this fight. These two had a little history going back and forth in the forums. I don't know who is going to win or in what round. I just know that somebody's getting knocked the fuck out.
Ebay- FOR SURE!!! The next fight is another good one with Dee facing off against Mottus. Dee is the former champ looking to get back on top and Mottus is a strong up and comer, hungry for his own shot. What do you think about this match and will the winner face the winner of the first fight?
Nate- Well, Mottus came into the league highly touted. He going to have a tough night. I said in an interview before, that transition between QFC and fighting in a league is tough. But, so is Mottus. We all know what kind of beast Bobby is. He just so happened to go up against our current champion. So, we will see if he can bounce back, or move further down into those deep waters of 205.
Will the winner get a crack at the title? I can't say at the moment. Not that it's a secret. 205 is just so deep, anything can happen.
Ebay- There are many other great fights on the card which brings me to the third title fight of the evening, Arnoldas Sireika v Marcel Dikoume. Unfortunately we weren't able to speak with them for this fight but we'd all love to hear your take on this fight.
Nate- Arnoldas is a monster, Dikoume is underrated. And that's what makes him so dangerous. Arnoldas, of course, is favored in this. BUT, he was the underdog against Takashi...if you catch my drift.
Thanks, wonderful questions. Can't wait to see what the guys said. Thanks for having me, beers on me next time.
Ebay- And thank you Nate, cheers to everyone and good luck too. You all can't win at Gladitorius Maximus II next Saturday night but you're all winners compared to me. Thank you and goodnight from JAG!!!
