    in MMA

    We have a very special guest on this week's edition of Carson's Corner - one of two men to appear in the first LIVE fight of the very first UFC event!   Sumo wrestler, fighter and now successful actor Teila Tuli - now known by his real name of Taylor Wily - brings his formidable size and personality to join "The Thriller" Bob Carson for the definitive interview of his career to date thanks to MMA insider Jeremy Couball.   This interview covers almost every Tuli topic imaginable, including (but definitely not limited to) the following:   His background as a Samoan in Hawaii and whether he was known for being a tough guy before his stint in sumo and the UFC   Rumors of match fixing in sumo after analysis in the book "Freakonomics" and whether he experienced that side of the sport   His entry into the first ever UFC event, the intense backstage atmosphere and "the moment the UFC became real" according to Ken Shamrock, when his teeth were knocked out by a kick from Dutch rule infraction machine Gerard Gordeau   What happened to his teeth that were kicked into the front row(s)   Whether he ever wanted a rematch with Gordeau and how that fight might be different the second time around   The hypothetical Tuli/Royce Gracie matchup which never happened - was he really more focused on a fight with Royce?   Appearing in Hawaii Five-0 on CBS, playing a police informant and the "no snitching" culture of the streets
