For those that are not aware, last week we interviewed Ed Carpenter (Pro fighter from Midwest Training Center) regarding his fight with Maurice Greene (from Emerald Smoke). In the interview Ed mentioned several things pointed not necessarily toward Maurice, but more toward Emerald Smoke (you can read our interview with Ed here). After the interview, Michael Bodziach (manager for Maurice Greene and coach at Emerald Smoke) contacted me requesting a rebuttal interview. Last week we received the story from one side. Now we will tell you the tale from the other side. Here is my interview with Michael.
Tony Based on what I've seen on Facebook, it seems apparent that you guys have read my last interview with Ed.
Michael Oh yea. I read that the same day. I definitely want to tell our side of the story.
Tony Well lets get this started. The first question that comes to mind is how you ended up with Maurice Greene. I remember when he was an amateur, he wasn't with Emerald Smoke.
Michael Maurice and I met a little over a year ago. I met him at a Ruckus show at Alhambra. He came and he checked out our gym. At the time we were just getting the ball rolling about 5 months into being open. We didn't have a lot as far as a fight team. We were just getting the ball rolling. That day I just left it open for him if he wanted to come back to get any workout or training in to let me know. With that, Maurice's job moves nearby (3 blocks away). He then stopped in the gym just to say hi; not necessarily sold on coming to the gym. He told me of him not being able to get a pro fight within 7 months. Sometimes entry level pro fights aren't as easy to find. I simply told him I'll see what I can do. I made a couple phone calls. At the time Flawless was coming up. I came back to Maurice and told him to give me a week. I'll get him a fight. Three days later, the Flawless fight came about and that's how it went down (I still had 4 days to spare).
Tony It's funny that you bring it up like that, because when I interviewed Maurice Greene that's mainly what he said, but without as much detail. Let's talk about the fight real quick. Were you happy with his performance given it was a debut fight for him?
Michael I was definitely happy with his performance considering he was fighting a roughly established guy. I don't want to be the least bit disrespectful to Ed in this interview other than rebutting some of his accusations. He's obviously an established fighter. He's 5-2, and brings a good game. A lot of people thought we were crazy taking that fight. That's what we were offered and we had to roll with it. Either don't fight or fight a 5-2 guy. Maurice has been dying to make a debut so we took the fight. In Ed's interview, he said he didn't follow his game plan. Maurice didn't follow his game plan either. He (Maurice) was throwing one strike at a time, kind of popping his jab out there; he wasn't really following it up. He knew he was against a wrestler so he knew not to move backwards so the takedown wasn't there. Yet that's what he did. He's got a lot of work to do, but at the same time he was pushing the pace. It's not often that you see a guy winning the fight off his back. Sure Ed landed the takedowns (which obviously we'll work on takedown defense), but he did nothing with them, and Maurice was beating the crap out of him with elbows and punches off his back. I'm proud of him, but we just have to tighten his game up.
Tony So what's your thoughts on Ed wanting to do a rematch?
Michael We're 100% on board. My question to Ed is if that's really what he wants. First Flawless approached me about doing it which is fine. Let's do it. Then I heard it through the grapevine that Ed was campaigning for a fight elsewhere. Then I also hear that Colosseum Combat out in Kokomo was putting him on the card looking for an opponent. I immediately contacted their matchmaker and promoter and left a message. I never hear back and a day later he's fighting a guy named Ron Carter. No disrespect to him, I don't know him from anybody walking down the street, but he's 6-12 listed on mixedmartialarts.com as a 205er. I question everything he said in the interview, because there is polar opposites of actions. He says he NEEDS this rematch. He doesn't want the decision in the Maurice's Greene's fight to pad his record. Which is it? That's what you say, but your actions are clearly stating something else. You're taking a fight against a can basically when we offer ourselves up. Which is it. If you just want to fight somebody where you know you're going to win, that's fine Ed. I fought before. I get it. Sometimes you just want that. But you know what, at least take ownership of it. Don't sit there and call Maurice out on paper then go elsewhere. We will sign the contract anywhere. If he doesn't want to fight in Illinois, we could have done it in Kokomo. Bellator has a show October 5th in Hammond. We can do it there. Maurice and I don't give a shit. We're fine with it.
Tony Well from my talk with both you and Ed, it sounds like Ed wants it and you guys are already on board. It just looks like we need someone to pick this fight up. Going back to my interview with Ed, he mentioned some things about Emerald Smoke as a whole. Is there anything you would like to clarify on your end?
Michael Oh I would love to. One of his things is that he said one of the members of the Illinois Athletic State Commission is a member at Emerald Smoke. First of all, I already know who he's talking about. I'm not going to mention his name; If he wants to get into this he can fight his own battles. First of all he is NOT on the Illinois Athletic State Commission. He is a licensed referee and that's where it ends in the eyes of the commission. He literally has never done one thing in the gym with Maurice. Our gym, when we started off, tried to bridge the gap between how mixed martial artists train and your average 9-5er looking for a good workout. This official in question comes in after work (due to his 9-5 job) and does our group classes. The fighters at Emerald Smoke (about 7-8) literally do not do the classes. They show up and I run practices at around 2 in the afternoon when no one else is there, because I don't want the fighters taking away from our paying members. They literally have never even been on the mat on the same time. I'll sure Maurice couldn't even pick this alleged member out of a lineup. So as far as saying that this guy was heavily involved at the show, he was asked to officiate Flawless. But because of being at classes at Emerald Smoke and Maurice fighting, it would be conflict of interest. Bottom line is that they literally never trained together.
Tony That solves a portion of what was mentioned. Can you explain how Emerald Smoke became the location where the weigh ins took place?
Michael We basically did Flawless a favor. They were supposed to have their weigh ins at Tilted Kilt and that fell through a few days before. Obviously they had enough stress going on running their first show, so I offered the gym. A lot of the fighters were staying in Chicago. They were coming from overseas and out of town. The fights were at the UIC Forum which is an 8 minute drive from the gym. Having the weigh ins were only for convenience and that's where it ends.
Tony The last thing that was mentioned were T-shirts being worn by the cage crew with Emerald Smoke and Maurice Greene on them.
Michael There is no such thing as a Maurice Greene T-shirt. I'm his manager and his coach. Maurice doens't have one. He IS Maurice. There is no such thing as Maurice Greene T-Shirts. Those members (the cage crew) are members of my gym and the moment they walked in they were given Flawless T-Shirts. Let's take this a step further. What are we really talking about? How far is Ed trying to reach to make excuses? I have some facts of my own. But I'm going to end this with the greatest fighter of all time. Chael Sonnen. Let's not make this more than this is. It's nothing more than a fist fight on Saturday night. I don't care who was outside the cage. It's two people locked in the cage. Honestly, you lost the fight. If you think you didn't lose the fight, you didn't do enough in the judges eyes to win it. We have one way to figure this out and that's to do it again. I'm drawing a line in the sand right now.
Tony Based on the decision of the fight, were you upset to the fact that it was changed twice throughout the show?
Michael It's very difficult NOT to even though we walked away with the win. Everyone we know, know that I just started my management company and Maurice is my first pro fighter. It's our first pro fighter out of the gym. It me and Maurice's first pro fight, so everyone's asking me what happened. I had to reply with Yea... he won, but this happened. Obviously Maurice is happy with a W, but in his own mind there's an asterisk next to it. He's not thrilled by that and I'm not thrilled by that. There's literally one way to settle this. If he doesn't want to do it in Illinois that's fine, let's do it somewhere else but let's get this done. The ball is in his court now. We 100% legitimately want it. I'm not sure if he wants it, or if he wants people to believe he wants it. At the end of the day, let's not make excuses here. It was a close fight. Whatever happened with the judges, whatever happened with the commission, it was close enough (and I'll agree with him on this one) that it needs to be done again. Let's get it done sooner rather than later.
Tony Heck I'm sure the fans want to see this one again. Not only to settle everything, but just because it was a good fight. I'm fairly certain we will get to see another match between Ed and Maurice, but time and place will have to still be determined. Thank you for taking time to sit down with me and give everyone the other half of this story. We really do appreciate it, and I'm sure everyone who saw the fight (or read my interviews) appreciates it.
Cutthroat MMA Invasion Chicago: Redemption 8/25/12
Allow me to give a little bit of a background of this experience. When I get to the Congress Theater, I’m told by the sign on the front door to enter through the side. So I do. When I enter, I get my wristband. I look in the theater and it’s empty. Mind you, this was already at 7 PM. The doors opened at 6:30 PM according to the advertisement. I’m a little upset at this point because I was thinking I would have to wait a few hours. Later on I hear music. I follow the music and it leads me to the lobby of the Congress Theater. In there is where the cage is set up. Chairs are lined up as best as they could be around the cage and fans were sitting on the giant stairs that lead up to the balcony. It was cramped and it was hot from all of the body heat.
***I was informed that the theater hosted a paint party the night before. Cutthroat did not find it safe for the fighters and audience to freely inhale the lingering paint fumes, so this is why the event was held in the lobby.***
7:30 PM, when the fights were advertised to start, and nothing was happening. Tech is still setting up and fighters were walking around with unwrapped hands. 8:30 PM comes and I hear that the fighters just now started with the rules meeting. I, along with all the fans, was getting antsy. And then 9 PM rolls around and we get the announcement that the fights were about to start.
Luckily though, this is a Cutthroat card, which has never failed to deliver exciting fights since I’ve covered fights for Chi-Town MMAniacs, and deliver it did. Thanks to all the hard work of the fighters and the match-makers. This card did not disappoint. There were eight exciting fights, which had six exciting finishes. The frustration of the crowd quickly turned into excitement as the fighters put everything they had in the cage.
So here are the results of the eight fights for Cutthroat MMA’s Invasion Chicago: Redemption. Enjoy!
