The history of WMMA
Early Vale Tudo
In 1949 the higly skilled Brazilian Jiu Jitsu clan Feitosa starts the Feitosa Challenge, where Ricardo Feitosa Sr did fight against loads of Boxers, Luta Livre practioners, Capoeira fighters and generic toughguys in Rio de Janeiro's martial arts dojos and small gymnasiums. There were no promotions, weight classes or championships, and fighters represented their styles and their schools.
The Birth of Shootfighting
Kien Shih was a former Judo champion, who had visions of creating a hybrid between Professional Wrestling and his sport. In May 1974, Kien Shih founded Combat Fighting Arts, a promotion centered around the concept of CFA presenting its matches as legitimate fights between two competitors, instead of the traditional ideals of Japanese Pro Wrestling. The matches were actually booked to ensure popular winners. The concept, seen as a huge gamble to begin with, was an immediate and total flop, leaving Shih scrambling to repair the damage done to his finances. Combat Fighting Arts closed in the summer of 1975 and Kien Shih opened Tokyo City Championship Combat to promote regular Pro Wrestling.
In december of 1974 young martial artist Hito Ichihara entered the world of Pro Wrestling and signed with Burning Hammer of the Wrestling Gods. Ichihara is seen as the japanese pioneer of cross-training and combined Kyukushin Karate, Judo, Catch Wrestling and Pro Wrestling in a unique style. He stayed loyal to BHOTWG during his Pro Wrestling career and got respected for his fighting spirit and his devastating martial arts kicks. Besides competing in BHOTWG, Hito Ichihara began to challenge other Pro Wrestlers and legitimate martial artists to face him in shootfights.
World Freestyle Fighting Tournament 1975
In december 1975 Hito Ichihara held the World Freestyle Fighting Tournament. The WFFT was a freestyle single-elimination fighting tournament, where some of the world's finest martial artists were invited. In the quarter-finals Dutch Kyukushin Karate expert and Kickboxer ”Dirty” Danny Berteling knocked out former Sumo Wrestler Kuruma with a devastating headkick. ”The Iranian Madman”Suleyman that had fought in several underground no-holds-barred competitions in Hock Kong and had a background in Freestyle Wrestling and Amateur Boxing defeated the American truckdriver and powerlifter John Gehring by strikes. Besides working as a truckdriver, Gehring had experience from underground bare-knuckle prizefighting. In the third match Japanese Jiu Jitsu master Masaki Sakurai submitting American Pro Boxer Jefferson Brown. The fourth and last quarterfinal saw Hito Ichihara defeat Kyukushin Karate blackbelt Nobuo
Wakabayashi by submission.

In the last quarterfinal two time tournament winner Hito Ichihara won by submission against French Savate fighter Bernard Mennessier. In the semifinals Ricardo Feitosa Sr submitted Bart Jones, while Hito Ichihara did the same with Danny Berteling. Meeting his most difficult opponent in his career, Ichihara finally managed to knock out the BJJ expert with a knee strike to the head.
World Freestyle Fighting Tournament 1978
Undefeated Hito Ichihara decided to focus on his BHOTWG career and did not compete. The first quartfinal saw Brazilian BJJ practioner Ricardo Feitosa Jr against Kuruma. Feitosa Jr managed to get down the Sumo on the ground and could apply a submission hold. French Savate fighter Bernard Mennessier used his patented headkick knock out against Bulgarian strongman Boris Anguelov.

In the final Ricardo Feitosa Jr fought a great battle against the bigger Suleyman, but finally managed to submit his opponent and was declared the last World Freestyle Tournament winner.
The United Shootfighting Federation era
In december 1979 three times WFFT winner and Shootfighting pioneer Hito Ichihara met in BJJ expert Ricardo Feitosa Jr in a Feitosa Challenge event. The fight was declared a draw after 30 minutes had past. After the fight Ichihara retired from the world of Shootfighting to fully focus on ”Strong Style” Wrestling. While various gyms held local Shootfighting events around the globe, it was not until april 1984 when a group of former Pro Wrestlers formed the USF (United Shootfighting Federation) that the sport took it's first step from local to regional level. The promotion was based in Japan and was set up to promote ”true” shootfights. It's roots were Hito Ichihara's Hybrid Wrestling style.
The Japanese MMA war
The first boom period of Shootfighting came in 1989 when CFAi (Combat Fighting Arts international) opened it's doors. In the 1990 the promotion PANKRATION followed. With a limited market for Shootfighting and stiff competion, the USF closed it's doors in november 1990. CFAi and PANKRATION took over the market, but what happened once also happened twice when ALPHA-1 opened in 1992 and CFAi couldn't handle the competition. ALPHA-1 introduced more weightclasses and rules that allowed more martial arts options for the competitors. The brutal and fast pacened ALPHA-1 shows were a hugh hit and the promotion dominated the market and left the openweight promotion PANKRATION far behind in the shadows.

List of reported issues with the 2.4 version of CV EXPANDED
Emanuel Almeida - Missing picture
Geoff Taggart and Joachim Orvik - Using the same render
Feitosa family - Three more members will be created and added
Various relatives - Some of Afroducks are finished but needs to be imported
Billy Graham's short name is still set at Default
Classic Cage Combat - Edit so that they use a cage instead of a ring
Legends of Caged Combat - Edit so that they use a cage instead of a ring
Reputation needs to be balanced - I've tweaked down a lot of the higher ones, but there need to some major work to balance all created, imported and default workers.
Jason Rodriguez and Linton Berry are currently using the same pictures.
Miroslav Randova has no biography.
I've been putting off a new WMMA game for this mod. Very much looking forward to giving it a good look...
Ok download links are active!:cool:
I'll upload an optional picture pack in the weekend that contains the ones that are 'missing'. Most are actually pictures that were used in previous installments of the game and replaced for some reason. If you prefer not to play with those because they might remind you of a certain someone, just don't download the pack. Or delete the fighters in question if you don't want faceless fighters.
edit: due to some misunderstandings in data sharing, my data has been reverted back to a past (way outdated and slightly faulty) state. I'll upload a never version of the database saturday. Apologies. Of course it's perfectly playable as it is, especially if you don't care about the women fighters as that's the only thing I tampered with. :)
Dude I appreciate all the time this must have taken you guys!
I'm firing this one up as soon as I can.
I'm currently playing the Default database in a 9 year game and the bantamweight division is a whopping 30 fights. Ha.
I'm noticing many BJJ fighters have no background.
Just a quick, inconsequential note: Both CCC (Classic Cage Combat) and LOCC (Legends of Caged Combat) are set to use a ring instead of a cage in their rules.
For the male fighters i've tried to tweak all backgrounds so that fighters with skills in the 40's and below don't have any set level, fighters between 50-79 should be high level and fighters above 80 should be at world level.
