View Full Version : Dude's UFC dynasty
11-30-2011, 11:56 PM
Hi all. I am the Dude, or at the very least, a Dude. I wanted to start one of these, because I'm hooked on the game and it just seems like the thing to do. I did one before about 7 years ago for Ryland's EWRevenge series on a e-fed site, and that seemed to go over alright. I don't know how creative I plan on getting, it might just be making matches and posting them for the first couple of game months. People are more than welcome to make predictions if they want, but I can't guarantee anything if you win other than a sense of well being. Which is pretty special in its own right.
Game is starting with Modern Warriors 4.0 mod, May of 2011. I'm not recreating the cards that took place from then till now, but have made a few matches that took place. Also I fast tracked some signings that weren't made before May, such as Nick Diaz, Alistair Overeem, Siyar Bahadurzada and I placed John Dodson, TJ Dillashaw and Johnny Bedford in the Bantamweight division since I have no immediate plans on doing a TUF. Enjoy!

UFC Live 4: Guillard vs. Sherk
"The Young Assassin" Melvin Guillard vs. Sean "The Muscle Shark" Sherk
Melvin Guillard is on the role of his career, knocking out highly touted Evan Dunham in his last outing to move into contender status. Sherk's a former champion who's trying to prove that he still has what it takes to fight for the title again.
Rick "Horror" Story vs. Martin "Hitman" Kampmann
Story's on a five match winning streak, while Kampmann's coming off a two fight skid, including a highly questionable decision loss to Diego Sanchez. Story wants to get to the next level, and a convincing win over Kampmann could put him there.
Cheick Kongo vs. Pat "HD" Barry
A match up between two of the most feared strikers in the Heavyweight division. Barry's game is ever evolving, and Kongo has turned into a decent wrestler. Will that wrestling come into play or will they just stand and bang?
Jonathan Brookins vs. Leonard "Bad Boy" Garcia
TUF 12 winner Brookins makes the move down to Featherweight to take on the always exciting Leonard Garcia. Garcia will be a good litmus test for Brookins as we will see how Brookins reacts to being put in a proverbial 'dog fight'.
Kendall "Da Spyder" Grove vs. Riki Fukuda
The former TUF 3 winner is coming off a tough loss to Demian Maia, while Fukuda impressed all in his UFC debut, despite suffering a questionable decision loss. Both men need a win to turn it around, so look for them to take it to each other in the opening bout on the main card.
Joe "J-Lau" Lauzon vs. Paul "Sassangle" Sass
Cole "The Apache Kid" Escovedo vs. Renan Barao
Eliot "The Fire" Marshall vs. Yoel Romero Palacio
Chris Camozzi vs. Francis Carmont
Nam Phan vs. Jason Reinhardt
Yuri Villefort vs. Mark "Scanno" Scanlon
CARD WILL TAKE PLACE THURSDAY OF WEEK 4, MAY 2011

UFC 130: Night of Champions
UFC Heavyweight Championship
Cain Velasquez (c) vs. Junior 'Cigano' dos Santos
The two top Heavyweights in the UFC collide. Both men are undefeated in the UFC with 13 wins between them. Velasquez, the former All-American wrestler, has developed great boxing, but will it be enough to overcome dos Santos, who some say has the best striking in all the Heavyweight division. And can dos Santos stay upright if Velasquez turns this into a wrestling match?
UFC Bantamweight Championship
Dominick Cruz (c) vs. 'The California Kid' Urijah Faber
It's a rematch 4 years in the making, this time in the Bantamweight division. Faber got the better of Cruz the first time, but Cruz has looked dominant in his run as the WEC champion. There is real bad blood between the two, and coupled with the endless cardio that the two have, this fight should be a great one.
Chael Sonnen vs. Vitor 'The Phenom' Belfort
Both men's last fight came as losses against current Middleweight champ and Pound for Pound kingpin Anderson Silva. Sonnen was minutes away from upsetting the champ, while Belfort was brutally knocked out. Belfort asked for the match after hearing some of Sonnen's disparaging comments about Brazilian peoples, and Sonnen was more than happy to oblige. A win could put both men just a fight or two away from a rematch.
Brandon 'The Truth' Vera vs. Vladimir 'The Janitor' Matyushenko
Vera is on a 3 fight skid, including his last fight where he was dominated by, according to his urine, an inhuman Thiago Silva. While the decision was eventually turned into a no-contest, Vera desperately needs a win. He meets Matyushenko, who has looked like a completely different fighter following his loss to current Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones. Can Vera turn his fortunes around or will Matyushenko continue his late career resurgence?
'The Fireball Kid' Takanori Gomi vs. Yves Edwards
Former PRIDE legend Gomi has looked nothing short of schizophrenic thus far in his short UFC career. He knocked out Tyson Griffin then turned around to get out-boxed by Clay Guida before being submitted. Edwards has come back to the UFC and reeled off two straight solid wins. Both fighters were considered Top 10 Lightweights in 2005-2006 and both like to trade on the feet, which promises for an exciting fight.
Kurt 'Batman' Pellegrino vs. Spencer 'The King' Fisher
Carlos 'Ta Danado' Eduardo Rocha vs. Mike 'Quicksand' Pyle
Ricardo Lamas vs. Joe 'Daddy' Stevenson
'The Hippo' Anthony Perosh vs. Fabio Maldonado
Constantinos Philippou vs. Alexandre 'Cacareco' Ferreira
Guram Gugenshvili vs. Rob 'The Bear' Broughton
Ken Stone vs. John 'The Magician' Dodson
CARD IS SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY OF WEEK 4, MAY 2011
12-01-2011, 03:21 PM
The Ultimate Fighting Championship has officially announced the addition of Chris Latta to the company, effective immediately. Latta will takeover the matchmaking responsibility, as well as take the role of Dana White's unofficial understudy. The move comes with Joe Silva opting to take another unspecified role in the company, citing that his role as matchmaker became 'taxing and a dreadful experience over the past couple of months.
"Joe (Silva) is a consummate professional in whatever he does. His job was probably the most polarizing in the company and he faced public criticism and questioning for almost every card, but really was and still is a huge part of what makes the UFC a success. Chris Latta's gonna have huge shoes to fill but believe me, he's up for the task." said Dana White.
The move was a surprise, especially considering Latta's relative inexperience. He was the booker and co-owner of an independent wrestling company located out of New York, before getting a job as an assistant in the short-lived MMA company Combat Sports Organization, based out of New Jersey. It is said that he impressed Dana White during a conversation the two had before UFC 127.
"This kid's got some great ideas, and really knows and loves this business. He's had the job for a week and so far has gone above and beyond his duties. I honestly couldn't tell you whether or not he sleeps." said White.
Latta was unavailable for comment at press time.

Two Matches Announced for UFN 25
The main event has been set for the next UFC Ultimate Fight Night, as Blurcat learned that Tito Ortiz will be facing Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Both fighters were Top 10 Light Heavyweights five or six years ago, but now are trying to stay relevant in the UFC, as they have one win between them in their last six fights.
Also announced as the co-main event, Jason 'Mayhem' Miller will be returning to action in the UFC for the first time since 2005, as he will meet Brian Stann. Miller has found a measure of fame as the host of MTV's Bully Beatdown, while Stann has had a career resurgence since he moved to Middleweight.
More match announcements will follow.

Jason Reinhardt Released

White was quoted saying that, 'whoever loses is gonna get cut'. Reinhardt went winless in three UFC appearances, also getting submitted by Joe Lauzon and Tie Quan Zhang prior to last night's loss to Phan.
