Default Building The DaveVerse (A Fictional Database Diary)

Hello, welcome to a diary that, to be honest, probably won't interest many people but seems I cannot commit to writing my TEW diary right now (formatting takes way too much time, especially with the limited time that I have to myself these days) I've decided that with no pictures, little formatting and more analysis/reaction than creative storylines needed, I can use this to satisfy my need to write, at least for the moment I hope to get back to TEW soon.

So, what is the DaveVerse? The DaveVerse is a fictional universe shared between TEW and WMMA where I have created fictional characters in each game to play a fresh game. Basically, its my version of the C-Verse default database in both games. The WMMA version starts in 2000.

Yeah but whats the diary about? Basically, I am building fighters and companies for the universe and I want to bring you through the history of the universe through the events of each company. So, I will be making events for companies and using the versus feature in the menu to play out these fights, then entering the results into the database and telling what these results mean for future fights. Yes, it sounds extremely confusing and I get that but once I get started, you'll pick up the idea pretty quickly. I will bring you through each company one by one, event by event. Each event will bring you new fighters, new stories, etc and then I'll write a brief description about what the result means so it should be pretty fun.

We will be starting with a company called HONOR that is based in Japan and I'll write some context on the promotion in the next post.

Oh, and another thing, this database probably will not be released, unless there comes a point where I could release it, this is more for my enjoyment than to create a new universe to release to the forums, but if you want to see how this universe's mma world shapes and the lore around it snd you're interested in that, then come along for the ride.

Anyway, thanks for reading and the first post will be about HONOR.

HONOR
HONOR is a Japanese MMA company that began operations in 1988. Trying to find the baddest man on the planet, they held a no holds barred tournament called the HONOR Supershow in September of that year to find out who really was the baddest man. The first event was so successful, that they decided to make it a yearly show.

After three years of tournaments, HONOR announced in 1991 that their next tournament would be their last as they would create weight classes and they would make the fights themselves as a way to be more lucrative. The initial idea was to have three weight classes, Lightweight (100-160 lbs) Middleweight (161-220 lbs) and Heavyweight (221-280 lbs). This however, was completely changed as many big name fighters from the tournament days such as Seiho Kitamura and Liang Kang stated that they were sick of fighting fighters 40 plus pounds heavier than them, so HONOR decided on five weight classes, Lightweight, Welterweight, Middleweight, Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight, the norm when it comes to weight classes today and in March of 1992, HONOR held their first show with the new weight classes integrated and crowned their first ever champion in a weight class.

Since then, they have been the biggest company and a trend setter in the industry not just with the weight classes but also creating the 3 five minute rounds format and the 5 five minute format for the title fights but most importantly getting PPV introduced to the sport in 1996 with their event HONOR 17: Hojo v Enoki. However, it wasn't until HONOR 20: Hanabusa v Godo, that the sport exploded into the main stream. Although the main event between Keiji Hanabusa and Shirai Godo wasn't anything to write home about, the result was what got the attention, a split draw. An MMA bout had never ended like this on a stage such as this and thanks to fans and the media, HONOR had hit the big time.

Since then, HONOR as solidified itself as the biggest company in the world and has a pick of the best talent from it. They make the biggest stars, the best fights and have made the sport of MMA a part of the combat sports conversation, like no other company has. Sure it has it's competitors, but right now, HONOR is at the top of the tree.

HONOR SUPERSHOW 1
It's September 1988 and eight competitors have signed up for a no holds barred tournament to find out who was the baddest man on the planet was, with 1 thirty minute round but what would happen if that time limit would hit, well, that would be something they would have to figure out on the fly.

1st Round
David Duberry def. Naizen Nakadan by Submission (Kneebar) at 3:42 of Round 1
Seiho Kitamura def. Hogai Kawakami by Submission (Armbar) at 3:18 of Round 1
Markov Piotrowski def. Tomiji Satoh by Unanimous Decision at 30:00 of Round 1
Masahiro Kawasaki def. Toshiaki Takaoka by Unanimous Decision at 30:00 of Round 1

In the first ever match in HONOR history, Japanese boxer, Naizan Nakadan faced an unknown grappler David Duberry from California, US. Now, we know that Duberry is a catch wrestler, something he learned from his British father when he was young, but then, we knew nothing of the young American. Many expected Nakadan to KO the American, but with Duberry being bigger, stronger and a very talented wrestler, Duberry took down Nakadan and locked in a kneebar, a submission most people in the crowd had not seen previously and Nakadan quickly tapped, allowing Duberry to move onto the next round.

In the next 1st round bout, wrestler Hogai Kawakami faced grappler Seiho Kitamura. The much bigger Kawakami was expected to have his way with Kitamura, and did, taking down the smaller fighter with ease but from there, Kitamura showed just how dangerous technique can be as he was also a submission fighter, and from the bottom, transitioned into an armbar and locked it in for the win, another match where the live crowd were in shock.

The third match also created a talking point, as although there were no grapplers in this fight as Croatia's kick boxer Markov Piotrowski, faced Japanese brawler Tomihi Satoh. This was the first fight of the night that got the crowd going with the striking exchanges. Piotrowski used his reach and size to his advantage as he battered the much smaller fighter in Satoh for about twenty minutes. However, despite looking dead in the water numerous times, Satoh survived the onslaught and with Piotrowski gassed, Satoh started to throw his own strikes. Although, he did dominate the final ten minutes or so, Satoh never really troubled Piotrowski and to the shock of everybody, we had no clear winner after thirty minutes. Many people at the event didn't know what to do but Razan Sakai (now HONOR owner), the organiser of the event, who was sitting backstage with two of his friends, Shukishi Yamahata (now HONOR CEO) and Ikemoto Ushiba (now HONOR announcer) said that he would choose who wins and he shockingly picked Markov Piotrowski. Although many agreed with this decision, seems Piotrowski had nearly finished the fight on numerous occassions, he picked against his fellow countrymen in Satoh, which many didn't expect. Regardless, Piotrowski was through to the next round.

The fourth and final 1st round fight placed huge Japanese brawler Toshiaki Takaoka against kung fu specialist Masahiro Kawasaki. Takaoka went for it all in the opening few minutes doing his best to put away the smaller Kawasaki, however, he failed and due to fatigue, Kawasaki was able to put on the pressure. using a mixture of striking and grappling Kawasaki dominated the fight for the next twenty five minutes, but couldn't put away the massive Takaoka. The choice was Sakai's again and he chose Kawasaki to go through, a choice that was welcomed with a cheer from the live crowd.

Semi Finals
David Duberry def. Seiho Kitamura by split decision in 30:00 of Round 1
Masahiro Kawasaki def. Markov Piotrowski by TKO (Strikes) in 4:20 of Round 1

The semi finals begot more controversy as grapplers Duberry and Kitamura faced off against each other. Not exactly an exciting fight and one that was really close, both men traded top position on numerous occassions, tried to lock in submissions but failed, defended each others takedowns well and again after 30 minutes, we had no clear winner. Sakai was asked to announce the winner and famously changed his mind from Seiho Kitamura and announced David Duberry as the winner. This was due to the fact that Sakai believed that Kitamura had won, however, his friends that were backstage with him, believed Duberry had won. Despite the fact that he believed differently, he announced Duberry as the winner as he didn't want to choose the wrong fighter. Although Duberry was announced as the "unanimous winner" on the night, this has since been officially changed to a split decision win, seems Sakai, Yamahat and Ushiba were technically the judges that night. Since then, most believe that Duberry deserved to win, he held control for longer than Kitamura, defended Kitamura's submissions with ease and never seemed to be out of his depth, however, this is one of the most infamous moments in HONOR history and will live long in the memories of fight fans.

The other semi final was a lot more clear cut. Although, Piotrowski's clear advantage on the feet, it never really came into play as Kawasaki took down the striker and battered him for four plus minutes before the TKO stoppage. Many people thought that Piotrowski was still gassed from his earlier fight and that is why Kawasaki gained such an easy victory. That aside, it was a pretty decent performance and we now had our finals.

Final
David Duberry def. Masahiro Kawasaki by Submission (Arm Triangle) in 2:14 of Round 1

The baddest man on the planet moniker was given to David Duberry after submitting him in just over two minutes. Due to Kawasaki's size, he was able to takedown the smaller Duberry, however, that was the American's plan. Having gone thirty minutes in the previous round and knowing Kawasaki was not going to be able to defend against submissions, Duberry had the gameplan of letting the kung fu practitioner do the work for him and that's exactly what happened. Leaving him in his guard, Duberry quickly transitioned to top position and locked in the Arm Triangle to win the tournament, the moniker and the money. This event set the groundwork for the biggest company in the world and in just one year, the event would take place again to see who was the baddest man on the planet.

HONOR SUPERSHOW 2
A year later, the HONOR Supershow returned and David Duberry was back to defend his title as baddest man on the planet, but everybody except Tomiji Satoh from the year before returned also but this time, there were 12 fighters in the tournament, the semi finalists from the previous year would go straight through to the quarter finals. This time, three unbiased judges were hired to score the bouts.

1st Round
Akira Nishio def. Matthew Bruce by Unanimous Decision at 30:00 of Round 1
Toshiaki Takaoka def. Atasuke Iriye by TKO (Strikes) at 1:53 of Round 1
Hogai Kawakami def. Haru Iwahashi by Submission (Armbar) at 1:29 of Round 1
Naizan Nakadan def. Liang Kang by TKO(Strikes) at 6:22 of Round 1

Two newcomers went one on one in the first fight of the show as Judo practitioner, Akira Nishio faced Canadian wrestler Matthew Bruce. Despite the domination by Nishio, he couldn't put the wrestler away who showed good submission defense all fight. Both men were active throughout the thirty minutes but there was no doubt that Nishio was the winner and he would go on to the next round.

Japanese brawler Takaoka's return to HONOR would start with a win as the near 300 pound behemoth faced a fighter over 100 pounds lighter than him in Japanese wrestler Atasuke Iriye. As you can imagine, Takaoka was too big, too strong for Iriye to wrestle with and one big punch followed by a few more resulted in a TKO victory for the big man but Iriye earned a lot of respect for facing a man much bigger than himself.

Another returner in wrestler Hogai Kawakami as he faced tall, long striker in Haru Iwahaski. However, this was never even close, it was obvious the strong wrestler Hogai Kawakami saw the effect that submissions had the year before as the strong wrestler showed he had been training in them as he submitted Iwahashi with an armbar in a minute and a half.

And Naizan Nakadan end the HONOR Supershow 1 sweep as he got the TKO victory over Chinese Karate fighter, Liang Kang. Two strikers that wanted to finish it and they stood toe to toe and threw fists, even if Kang was more looking for counter punches. In the end, the aggressor in Nakadan got the victory but Kang certainly put on a show

Quarter Finals
Akira Nishio def. Masahiro Kawasaki by Submission (Rear Naked Choke) in 1:47 of Round 1
Seiho Kitamura def. Toshiaki Takaoka by Technical Submission in 3:15 of Round 1
Hogai Kawakami def. Markov Piotrowski by Submission (Arm Triangle) in 1:41 of Round 1
David Duberry def. Naizan Nakadan by Submission (Kneebar) in 0:57 of Round 1

Last years finalist, Masahiro Kawasaki was back again and he would go up against newcomer, Akira Nishio in a fight where we would see if Kawasaki could defend submissions. Well, he couldn't and Nishio wasted no time in getting Kawasaki to the ground, setting up and locking in a rear naked choke and Kawasaki had no choice but to tap.

Seiho Kitamura returned to as well and Takaoka got through the first round. Kitamura was apart of the controversial semi final decision last year and he would get to there again as he was able to choke Takaoka out on the ground. However, the man refused to tap and was knocked unconscious until the ref stepped in, signalling Kitamura was the winner as it would be a fight of submission in the semi final once again this time though, Kitamura would face newcomer Akira Nishio.

Submission number three for the quarter finals as the new catch wrestling type style of Hogai Kawakami was paying dividends this time against dangerous striker Markov Piotrowski. It was pretty obvious how to beat the one-dimensional Polish fighter and that was to put him on his back and Kawakami would do that and submit him with an arm triangle in les than two minutes.

The first ever match HONOR would showcase would repeat itself in the quarter finals of the second show as Naizan Nakadan would try and get retribution over the man who beat him last year and last years winner in David Duberry, however, it was not to be. Duberry was just too good, same winner, same submission as the year previous, the only difference was that this time it only took 57 seconds to round out the submission sweep of the quarter finals.

Semi-Finals
Akira Nishio def. Seiho Kitamura by Unanimous Decision in 30:00 of Round 1
David Duberry def. Hogai Kawakami by Submission (Guillotine) in 10:20 of Round 1

Always the bridesmaid never the bride for Seiho Kitamura as history would repeat itself, being knocked out of the tournament after going thirty minutes with another grappler only for the judges to chose the other man. Akira Nishio was the only newcomer to make it to the quarter finals and then the semi-finals before booking his place in the finals thanks to a pretty good display against the man who put submissions on the map with Duberry a year ago. There was no doubt Nishio was the victor here, he was more aggressive with many Judo throws throughout the fight and many submission attempted but couldn't put the smaller man away, Kitamura was never out of the fight, but was clearly the loser in this exchange unlike a year ago when he arguably could have been declared the winner, however, it was not to be and the fans would have the newcomer Akira Nishio, the underdog, the home country fighter to cheer for in the final.

And the man he would face would be the man who was defending his title, David Duberry. Kawakami had shown an understanding for submissions throughout the tournament, getting two submission wins but they were against strikers who nothing about submissions and now he was facing, arguably, the best submission fighter in the world. Of course, the difference in class shone through as Duberry was able to lock in a guillotine choke, but not after many failed attempts beforehand. Kawakami lasted almost ten and a half minutes against the champ but in the end, Duberry was declared the winner.

Finals
David Duberry def. Akira Nishio by Submission (Kneebar) in 1:54 of Round 1

Here it was, the champion back in the final to defend his win from last year against a newcomer. The favourite gaijin against the underdog from Iwaki. A David versus Goliath battle where David was the actual Goliath, with the home crowd in attendance cheering for the underdog, a cinderella story for the ages could have been written, but it was not to be. David Duberry against showed he was the baddest man on the planet, as Nishio who had shown his proficiency and talent in submissions throughout the night was submitted in under two minutes. This showed just how far ahead of the game the man from Los Angelos, California was and as a two time winner of the tournament, the storyline for next years tournament was could anybody beat him?

HONOR SUPERSHOW 3
A year past by and with a huge announcement promised before the main event and 16 competitors, HONOR SUPERSHOW 3, was the biggest yet. New faces galore and a lot of returning ones, fans flocked to the event with only two questions on their lips, what was this huge announcement and can anybody beat David Duberry?

1st Round
Hogai Kawakami def. Tomiji Satoh by TKO (Strikes) at 1:12 of Round 1
Shinichi Hama def. Joel Yang by Unanimous Decision at 30:00 of Round 1
Akira Nishio def. Masahiro Kawasaki by Submission (Rear Naked Crank) at 1:37 of Round 1
Toshasugi Sarumara def. Toshiaki Takaoka by TKO (Strikes) at 2:34 of Round 1
David Duberry def. Takeshi Someya by Submission (Kimura) at 1:34 in Round 1
Markov Piotrowski def. Liang Kang by Unanimous Decision at 30:00 in Round 1
Seiho Kitamura def. Curtis Long by Submission (Armbar) at 3:39 in Round 1
Matthew Bruce def. Atasuke Iriye by Unanimous Decision at 30:00 in Round 1

The first match was between two returning fighters Hogai Kawakami who reached the semi-final last year and Tomiji Satoh who participated in HONOR SUPERSHOW 1. As one would imagine, the bigger, stronger, wrestler Kawakami was able to pick up the win when Satoh tried to brawl with Kawakami and got caught with a nasty punch that dropped him before Kawakami swarmed him for the TKO finish.

Two new guns squared off in fight two, as wrestler Shinichi Hama faced off against Singapore's own Muay Thai fighter, Joel Yang. Yang impressed early with his striking but when Hama was able to get a grip on him and put him to the ground, things changed. Though despite the ground and pound that went on for about twenty minutes, Yang never gave up and tried his best to get back to standing, but to no avail. Hama was unable to finish Yang, but he did get the decision finish after thirty minutes.

Next was the last two runners up of the tournament facing off as Akira Nishio faced Masahiro Kawasaki. Although the fight was probably one of the most anticipated of the first round, it ended in less than two minutes as the smaller Nishio took down Kawasaki got the Rear Naked Crank and locked it in and Kawasaki tapped.

Newcomer and sumo fighter Toshasugi Sarumara faced off against HONOR vet Toshiaki Takaoka in the next fight in the battle of massive behemoths. It started particularly crazy as the big men threw haymakers at each other hoping one would knock the other one unconscious. That was until Sarumara was rocked and used his sumo background to grab onto Takaoka and swiftly took him down. Easily able to position himself and unleash punches, Sarumara laid the boom on Takaoka with vicious ground and pound and the ref stepped in to stop it.

Next in came the two time champ, David Duberry as he faced newcomer, Takeshi Someya who was a wing chun fighter. With his weight disadvantage and poor grappling game, Duberry easily took Someya down and submitted him with a kimura. The fans knew that was coming, but can anybody stop him?

Next was a fight with two strikers, the returning Markov Piotrowski and Liang Kang, both of whom had lost in their first fight of the tournament last time out. With the striking power and technique in this fight, many expected a finish, but it never came. After thirty minutes of striking battles, it went to the judges and they gave it to Piotrowski, based purely on the fact he landed more strikes and knocked Kang down twice while he was only knocked down once.

Two time semi finalist Seiho Kitamura faced off against newcomer, Curtis Long. Long was an out and out brawler and was determined to get that one big punch to finish Kitamura, however, that failed to happen and after three and a half minutes plus, Kitamura finally sank in the armbar for the win.

Next was a thirty minute grappling match between two returning wrestlers, Matthew Bruce and Atasuke Iriye both of which had been beaten in the first round of last years tournament. This time they allowed the fans to go to the toilet and get some snacks as they put on a fairly poor wrestling exchange for thirty minutes. The bigger Bruce would prevail, not that the crowd cared, but they were happy to be able to move onto the quarter finals.

Quarter Finals
Hogai Kawakami def. Shinichi Hama by Submission (Armbar) in 2:58 of Round 1
Toshasugi Sarumara def. Akira Nishio by Submission (Armbar) in 1:55 of Round 1
David Duberry def. Markov Piotrowski by Submission (Heel Hook) in 2:24 of Round 1
Seiho Kitamura def. Matthew Bruce by Submission (Armbar) in 2:16 of Round 1

The wrestler Shinichi Hama faced catch wrestler Hogai Kawakami as the first match in the quarter finals and Kawakami came in with the perfect startegy, knowing the wrestler would want to take him down he allowed Hama to do so before he began working on the submission from the bottom, eventually locking in an armbar for the win in just under three minutes.

Next came the shock of the night as last years finalist, Akira Nishio was submitted by newcomer and sumo wrestler, Toshasugi Sarumara. Having been taking down by the sumo wrestler, Nishio worked for the submission from the bottom, but due to the sheer weight of Sarumara, it took a lot out of the much smaller Nishio and he gassed out, allowing Sarumara to lock in a submission of his own and get the win in under two minutes. This was the match where the crowd got behind Sarumara, having beaten last years finalist, he could be the home crowd best hope.

Duberry continues the run of submissions in the quarter finals as he was able to take down much famed striker Markov Piotrowski and lock in a heel hook. It was also the first time a strike had ever been countered into a submission as Piotrowski throw a head kick and Duberry caught it and transitioned it into the heel hook, Duberry was again looking unstoppable and the Japanese crowd knew it.

For the second year in a row, the quarter finals would be a sweep of submissions as Seiho Kitamura also joined the armbar party as he was able to finish Matthew Bruce with one. Kitamura was the aggressor from the outset and quickly dismantled of Bruce, as his eyes were on his next match up, a rematch with David Duberry. The man that was given the win over him at HONOR SUPERSHOW 1. Not only had Kitamura been the closest to beating him, he had also never gotten passed the semi finals at a SUPERSHOW before and he was going to have to take on his old enemy to get over that hump and the buzz picked up, the crowd were behind him, but could... he... do it?

Semi-Finals
Toshasugi Sarumara def. Hogai Kawakami by TKO (Strikes) in 12:58 of Round 1
David Duberry def. Seiho Kitamura by Unanimous Decision in 30:00 of Round 1

Another semi final loss for Kawakami as the "Akira Nishio Award" (coming into their first Supershow and make the finals) goes to Toshasugi Sarumara, who had not only shown grappling prowess all night, but also serious power as well and it was the power that got Kawakami as Sarumara was eventually able to take down Kawakami, defend the submissions form the catch wrestler and pound his face into oblivion. It took over ten minutes and despite an exhausted crowd they were still able to enjoy the fight. Sarumara had booked his place in the finals and for once, there was an heir of, we could have a new winner here. Sarumara was big, could grapple and had power in his hands to boot, surely, surely this year there would be a new champion.

Maybe there will, but Sarumara would have to beat the king to do it. Seiho Kitamura would have history would repeat itself again, being knocked out of the tournament after going thirty minutes in the semi finals, which made it three years in a row. That and the fact that he couldn't get redemtion for what happened two years ago as Duberry was dominant. He took Kitamura down and battered him for thirty minutes. He couldn't put him away but it was a dominant performance. Duberry had gone another thirty minute semi final and he had a much bigger fighter waiting for him in the finals, if Duberry was ever going to lose it was going to be now, the stars had aligned, everything that fans had said needed to happen for Duberry to lose in the finals had happened, this was it, he was gonna lose, right?

However, before that there was the big announcement as Razan Sakai stood centre stage. He announced that next years HONOR Supershow would be the last as HONOR would be introducing divisions. He also announced that there would be rounds next year, to the delight of the absolutely knackered crowd. Although not all the details were released at this moment, nobody knew how important this announcement would be for the sport of MMA.

Finals
David Duberry def. Toshasugi Sarumara by Unanimous Decision in 30:00 of Round 1

Many thought Sarumara was the guy, but alas he was not as Duberry quickly silenced the crowd by taking down Sarumara and dominating him early. The crowd were rendered silent as Duberry ground and pounded on the bigger man, maintaining control and trying a submission now and again to no avail, but dominated for thirty minutes nonetheless and Duberry earned his third HONOR SUPERSHOW title. Could anybody beat him, could anybody pry the title of Baddest man on the planet away from Duberry, well, MMA fans would have to wait a year to find out, or at least that what they thought anyway, as over the next two years, the sport of MMA would change, forever.

I find this quite interesting, seeing your own world play out. Duberry obviously is this universe's Royce Gracie so far, obviously, but I just have a feeling someone will pop up and beat him sooner or later.

Thank you, glad someone has an interest. Honestly, I didnt create Duberry or anybody else with a real world counter part in mind but I can see where you are getting the connection.

Well, that you'll have to wait and see. No spoilers here

This is interesting and well written, I'm following.

I've always toyed with the idea of making my own fictional WMMA universe and dabbled with it but haven't quite found the mustard to actually finish one. So I'm fascinated with the concept to begin with.

Wow, Paatero, your BCF run back a few years ago was one of the reasons why i decided to put this as a diary.

Glad you are interested, I've quite the amount of HONOR shows to go through, so it might take a while before we get to a good way imto the Verse.

Nice idea this and I am enjoying the read. Keep up the good work, my friend.

Fictional database work is very much a labour of love.

Duberry is unstoppable.

Do you plan on releasing the DaveVerse? I'd love to get it.

HONOR SUPERSHOW 4
The year? 1991. The place? Tokyo, Japan. The Event? The final HONOR SUPERSHOW ever. This event was the last of the openweight tournaments and with this year including three five minute rounds instead of the thirty minute format, things were becoming a lot more regulated. Despite it being the last SUPERSHOW ever, a few big names were missing. Last years finalist Toshasugi Sarumara announced he would miss the event due to him having a contract already for the HW division. Two time semi finalist, Seiho Kitamura was injured a month out from the event and was replaced by unknown fighter, Atshushi Yamawaki. However, the big one was David Duberry, who was not participating in the event. Rumours began circling that he decided to not participate in the tournament as, like Sarumara, he had already gotten a contract. Others stated he refused to compete in at the event due to the lack of comepetition. However, none of these reports were ever reported to be true, all we knew was that Duberry wasn't showing up which meant one thing, we were going to have a new HONOR SUPERSHOW champion.

The first match of the final ever Supershow was between two returning fighters as Canadian wrestler Matthew Bruce who had been in the last two SUPERSHOW's and kick boxer Markov Piotrowski, who had been at all three previous SUPERSHOWs and boy, this one was a barnstormer. Bruce started the bout really well taking down Piotrowski and hitting him with vicious ground and pound while also maintaining top control. Piotrowski got it back to the feet though and landed a vicious right hand to knock Bruce down before the bell rang for the end of round one, as the crowd were already on their feet. Piotrowski started round two viciously charging out of the block hitting Bruce with a nasty one two combination before he got the knockdown with a head kick, but Bruce survived the onslaught. Unfortunately, after a failed takedown attempt Piotrowski landed a nasty punch on Bruce as he was getting back to his feet and Bruce was out cold. The first ever fight with rounds cetainly had the crowd excited. Unfortunately for Bruce, this performance wasn't enough to get him a contract as his previous fights in HONOR ranged from poorly rated wins to him getting easily submitted.

The old tackled the new in the second bout as HONOR SUPERSHOW 1 finalist Mashiro Kawasaki faced newcomer Eichi Kurmochi. Kurmochi and Kawasaki stood on the feet and traded in the first round, Kawasaki getting the better of Kurmochi with an early knockdown. Kurmochi came back in the second though, rocking Kawasaki with a counter right, but Kawasaki recovered well to knock Kurmochi down late in the round with a head kick. In the final round, both men swung for the fences as a Kurmochi right hand was countered by a Kawasaki elbow that knocked down Kurmochi, but Kurmochi got up. Kawasaki rocked Kurmochi again, this time with a left hook but Kurmoshi survived again. Then another knockdown for Kawasaki with a combination but he couldn't finish the karate fighter. Kawasaki was given the decision and Kurmochi a contract as he would slot into the MW division.

The old and new faced off again in fight three as brawler Takeshi Takaoka faced newcomer Haru Iwashashi. Iwahashi was a Muay Thai fighter and this looked like it was going to be good. However, that wasn't the case as it wasn't good or bad just okay as Takaoka was much more aggressive in his search for that one punch KO, while Iwahashi did a lot of dodging and counter punches but none that ever put Takaoka in trouble. Takaoka landed a few shots but no big bombs as Iwahashi's hit and run startegy seemed to work as he had many more significant strikes, though no power was behind them. Iwahashi was given the decision due to the amount of strikes he landed. Takaoka was given a contract for the HW division despite his poor performances in all of the HONOR SUPERSHOWs, however, the fans love for him and his willingness to go out there and throw bomb might have something to do with it.

First round participant in HONOR SUPERSHOW 2 and 3, Liang Kang was next on the card against American newcomer, Douglas Summers. Kang's karate faced off against Summers' kickboxing and it was a pretty good fight. Kang was dominant early with a swift combination and counter right but Summers hit a nice head kick just after that. AS they exchanged again, Kang landed with a counter left and Summers went down. Kang pounced on the much smaller Summers and finished him off with strikes. Summers was not offered a contract due to him being knocked out quickly and Summers being considered "too small" for LW.

Akira Nishio proved his dominance once again, as the HONOR SUPERSHOW 2 finalist who neutralise Seiho Kitamura's replacement, Atshushi Yamiwaki. Yamiwaki who was a kung fu specialist, really showed Nishio early with a nasty head kick but from that moment on Nishio dominated the match, taking him down, hitting him with punches and trying to open a chance at a submission. However, Yamawaki did well to defend against the submission and Nishio couldn't finish him but his dominant grappling and strikes on the ground was able to grab him a win by unanimous decision. Yamawaki was given a contract after this fight, to compete at WW, with HONOR hoping that against fighter his own size, he'd be dangerous as his striking early on troubled Nishio, who was bigger.

Newcomer Sadaharu Shirai showed that he'd watched HONOR SUPERSHOW 3 against the returning Shinichi Hama. Shirai allowed the bigger Hama to take him down much like Hogai Kawakami did last year and once again Hama got caught with an armbar in the first few minutes of the fight. Shirai did struggled with the power of Hama but he finally was able to get the win with the armbar. Hama was signed for the HW division, mostly due to his wrestling ability.

Two veteran HONOR fighters as Naizan Nakadan returned after being absent from HONOR SUPERSHOW 3 to face Tomiji Satoh who had returned at HONOR SUPERSHOW 3 after being absent at HONOR SUPERSHOW 2. A very good striking exchange was had between the two with Nakadan landing more often and more powerfully as Satoh's creative kicks were able to catch the eyes of the judges, having evolved from the pure brawler he had been at HONOR SUPERSHOW 1. Nakadan landed heavy early with a nice combination, but Satoh survived to hit a spinning kick to the body which hurt Nakadan. Nakadan then dropped Satoh just before the bell rung, but Satoh was able to continue. Round two started with Satoh landing a jumping head kick that rocked Nakadan, but Nakadan got a counter when Satoh went in for the kill and rocked him right back. Nakadan kept Satoh at a distance for the rest of the round, with both men musing when they came into exchange. Round three started slowly again as Nakadan was happy to pick up some counters when Satoh tried to close the distance but after a beauty counter left by Nakadan rocked Satoh, that was enough for Nakadan to take advantage and wrap it up with strikes. Satoh would get a contract for the LW division despite his three fight losses in the first round in his three SUPERSHOW appearences, though many believe it was more for how entertaining his fights were than his actual talent.

Back to the banging with an incredible match between newcomer, Juro Joshuyo and seasoned HONOR vet and highly talented catch wrestler, Hogai Kawakami. Kawakami failed early with his takedown attempts, as Joshuyo shrugged them off landing nasty punches on the much favoured Kawakami. He landed combination after combination as Kawakami could not take him down. Then Joshuyo knocked Kawakami down with a vicious right and Joshuyo went in for the kill. However, it would be to his detriment as Kawakami would survive the onslaught and lock in a neck crank and that was enough to get the win, shocking the crowd with the comeback. Joshuyo was given a HW contract after this fight, I don't think I need to explain why.

Quarter Finals
Markov Piotrowski def. Masahiro Kawasaki by KO (Punch) in 0:22 of Round 2
Liang Kang def. Haru Iwahashi by Unanimous Decision in 5:00 of Round 3
Akira Nishio def. Sadaharu Shirai by Unanimous Decision in 5:00 of Round 3
Hogai Kawakami def. Naizan Nakadan by Submission (Armbar) in 1:31 of Round 1

Markov Piotrowski saved his best performance at HONOR SUPERSHOW for last as we got a rematch from the first SUPERSHOW's semi final. Kawasaki, who won the first fight, was outclassed here, as Piotrwski caused him all kind of problems in the first round, without ever really looking like he'd finish him. Of course, twenty two seconds into the second round, Piotrowski would get KO number two of the night after landing a vicious straight right that knocked Kawasaki unconscious. Kawasaki would be signed up by HONOR for the LHW division.

Despite a height, reach and weight advantage for Haru Iwahashi, he struggled to do anything against his opponent, Liang Kang. Kang, who was about eight inches smaller and about a hundred pounds lighter lit up Iwahashi with hit an run tactics from pillar to post as Iwahashi never even came close to doing much damage as the elusive Kang could come in, land a few strikes and get out again. Despite the fact Iwahashi was never in any trouble of being KO'd he didn't do anywhere near enough and Kang was rightfully declared the winner. Despite the showing, Iwahashi was signed up for HONOR's HW division.

A submission battle was next after the previous two striking battles. Shirai and Nishio were constantly trying to maneuver to get the best position and although it was a good contest, it was pretty obvious Nishio was not only the superior grappler, but also deserved the win in the fight and the judges felt the same. Shirai was picked up for HONOR's MW division.

Hogai Kawakami decided he'd submit another dangerous fighter in the quarter finals as boxer Naizan Nakadan would have no answer for the grappler. Nakadan couldn't stop the takedown early and it took Kawakami no time in getting position and locking in the armbar for the win. Nakadan was picked up by HONOR for the WW division.

Semi-Finals
Liang Kang def. Markov Piotrowski by TKO (Strikes) in 4:13 of Round 1
Akira Nishio def. Hogai Kawakami by Submission (Triangle with Armbar) in 4:11 of Round 1

It seemed this year we would have the best striker facing off against the best grappler as the semis pitted striker v striker and grappler v grappler with a place in the final on the line. Kang's night of beating fighters bigger than him continued as he was able to pepper Piotrowski with nasty counter strikes, even if Piotrwski was also landing. Amazingly, kang was able to get the finish by taking a right by Piotrowski but returning a quick combination that dropped Piotrowski, before Kang swarmed in to finish Piotrowski. Piotrowski was signed for HONOR's LHW division.

The grappling side pitted two really impressive fighters against each other, who had been in this situation before. However, we got a repeat finalist as Nishio was able to sub,it Kawakami in the first round. Kawakami was able to take down Nishio early and worked hard to get a submission, but Nishio was able to shrug off the three attempts Kawakami had and then Kawakami dropped his guard and Nishio sprung into action, getting the triangle with armbar and that was enough. Kawakami was signed up for HONOR's HW division.

Finals
Liang Kang def. Akira Nishio by TKO (Strikes) in 1:13 of Round 1

Kang would continue his run in beating up fighter bigger than him, but this time it wouldn't take long. Knowing he'd have to put the pressure on Nishio Kang attacked from the off and was aggressive in his approach and Nishio missed two takedown attempts before the head kick followed by strikes finished his night. Kang won the fight and the tournament, with Kang being the first non-American and person not named David Duberry to win a SUPERSHOW, but whats a little more astonishing is that with the Chinese Kang winning, HONOR were never able to promote a Japanese champion, meaning the home crowd never went home happy. That's the way MMA goes I guess. Both men were signed by HONOR, Kang for the LW division and NIshio for the MW division.

Of course Kang winning the tournament was a huge achievement and it pushed the Chinese fighter to the top of the line for a chance at the belt, but the big story was no David Duberry, all the rumours were declared false as Duberry wasn't at the event as HONOR and Duberry were in contract negotiations and before the first HONOR show out of the tournament format, it was announced David Duberry was not going to be an HONOR fighter. The news broke that Duberry had signed with an American company that was going to open in the next twelve to eighteen months. It just so happened that Duberry's wife was expecting a child and with that in mind he wanted to fight closer to home. This was a big shock to the Japanese MMA fans but it opened a new can of worms, if Duberry wasn't going to rule over HONOR, who would?

Thank you good sir. Right now, it's not quite a labour which is great, but I'm sure it'll turn into that soon enough. This is really something for me to sink my teeth into until other things are released but I'm having a ball with it right now.

The short answer is yes and no, but that just creates more questions. I started this because i wanted something new and fresh and that was it's only purpose, but if there ever came a time where I felt like the game could be released, I would certainly think about it.

That though brings new problems as I don't think I'd release a mod with no graphics and renders and I don't have the talent or the time to really get into making these. The mod itself is one of the three things I'm doing in my spare time and it's quite quick getting new fighters in and ready to fight. However, graphics and renders are not on my mind nor should they be, but if I was to ever release this, I'd think it would be without those and would probably be more of an "add on" for other databases instead of it's stand alone verse.

That being said, never say never and if I did decide to go that route, i'd let you guys know.

Okay, with that explained, something I'd like to talk about is the format will change slightly in the way that I won't be giving the results before I explain what happens, mainly cause it makes more sense. I will also briefly talk about what is next for each of the fighters involved also, in terms of next opponents, if they are cut etc. I will also post the next show at the end of them so you guys can predict if ye want though it might take awhile before you get in the groove of this as some fights will be between two new fighters, so they'll be 0-0 and there'll be nothing to denote who'll win, oh and the records with be the records they have in HONOR only, I haven't done out proper records yet as I'll do that once I'm done with all the shows.

HONOR 1: Kitamura v Nakadan

HONOR Welterweight Title Fight: Seiho Kitamura (4-3) v Naizan Nakadan (2-3)
The classic grappler versus striker match up as three time HONOR SUPERSHOW semi finalist Seiho Kitamura faces off against another SUPERSHOW vet Naizan Nakadan. Kitamura has shown his proficiency in the submission game, finishing all of his fights with submission and he's also proven incredibly tough to finish as all of his losses have gone the distance. Nakadan has also won all his fights by finishes with two TKO's but he's also been finished in all of his losses, and even worse, it was all by submission in which he lost the by. Who can become the first welterweight champion?

Heavyweight Fight: Juro Joshuyo (0-1) v Takeshi Takaoka (1-4)

Twp fairly poor records go one on here but one has to admit this should end with a finish. A boxer versus brawler as Joshuyo's boxing will try to beat teh brawler Takaoka. Takaoka has a lot more experience in the sport, fighting at all of the SUPERSHOWs, but didn't exactly light the world on fire, losing in three of the four first round matched he had. Joshuyo is a little bit more unknown, but had a good showing against Hogai Kawakami at SUPERSHOW 4 before getting submitted.

Lightweight Fight: Atasuke Iriye (0-2) v Kaoru Maita (0-0)

Iriye's wrestling didn't do much for him in his two SUPERSHOW appearances at 2 and 3, though they were against much bigger foes, maybe he'll do better in a weight class. Not much is known about Maita, except he is considered to be a brawler.

Middleweight Fight: Sadaharu Shirai (1-1) v Sanjiro Horigoshi (0-0)

Shirai showed he's a pretty decent submission artist at the last SUPERSHOW, getting past the much bigger Shinichi Hama, maybe he can show he could be a contender against Horigoshi who is apparently a folk wrestler and that's all we know.

Light Heavyweight Fight: Okitsugu Kanesaka (0-0) v Yozo Okazawaya (0-0)

Two strikers go one on one here as Kickboxer Kanesaka faced muay thai fighter Okazawaya. This is very much a pick your poison match as we don't know much about these guys.

Quick Picks
Kitamura v Nakadan
Joshuyo v Takaoka
Iriye v Maita
Shirai v Horigoshi
Kanesaka v Okazawaya

HONOR 1: Kitamura v Nakadan
Light Heavyweight Fight: Okitsugu Kanesaka (0-0) v Yozo Okazawaya (0-0)

Kanesaka gets an early knockdown in the first but Okazawaya gets a nice combination for himself after he recovers. However, that's the most Okazawaya gets this round as Kanesaka keeps him at a distance with some body kicks and precision jabs. That's a 10-9 to Kanesaka if you ask me.

Round two is where it picks up as Okazawaya gets a big right hand to connect only for Kanesaka's left hook to drop Okazawaya but he survives again. Okazawaya then gets his own knockdown after the two minute mark, but Kanesaka does really well to survive. Okazawaya tries a head kick but misses and Kanesaka lands another big hit but Okazawaya survives as the two seem to spend next two minutes regaining their strength going into the final round as they just stood around circling each other throwing a jab every so often. Probably 10-9 to Okazawaya on the judges scorecard but I'd give that a 10-10.

Round three is pretty boring to be honest, neither man real took any action and any exchanges they did have ended in them not landing, except a big right by Kanesaka that hurt Okazawaya but he didn't put him away. There was only 7 strikes landed throughout the third round. Tough round to score but I give it to Kanesaka due to his knockdown, 10-9. So my scorecard says 30-28 to Kanesaka, lets see what the judges say.

Judge 1: 30-27
Judge 2; 30-27
Judge 3: 29-28

Okitsugu Kanesaka (1-0) def. Yozo Okazawaya (0-1) by Unianimous Decision at 5:00 in Round 3. (Decent)

Too early to look at future opponents, half of the division isn't even made yet.


Middleweight Fight: Sadaharu Shirai (1-1) v Sanjiro Horigoshi (0-0)

Shirai is completely outclassed in the first by Horigoshi's folk wrestling. He really couldn't do anything, even on the ground as Horigoshi gave him ground and pound for pretty much the whole round, nothing particularly powerful, but still dominating. 10-9 Horigoshi, for sure.

Ugh, this is kinda boring, Horigoshi is really dominating this but isn't doing much, but defending submissions and landing short jabs like punches on the ground. sure it's dominating, but it isn't fun to watch. 10-9 Horigoshi again.

It's a dominating performance by Horigoshi. Shirai can literally do nothing but get taken down and try submission, that aren't working, he's had 7 in the last two rounds, all that failed. Horigoshi dominated here, from pillar to post, but sadly didn't finish the job. A win is a win however.

Sanjiro Horigoshi (1-0) def. Sadaharu Shirai (1-2) by Unianimous Decision at 5:00 in Round 3. (Average)


Lightweight Fight: Atasuke Iriye (0-2) v Kaoru Maita (0-0)

Iriye was knocked down early by Maita, but once Maita went in for the kill, Iriye survived and turned it around as he was able to get on top ad dominate Maita, before they got up at the end of the round and Iriye backed Maita up against the cage and started the dirty boxing, for the rest of the round landing nasty shots. I'll give it to Iriye 10-9, Maia started well though

Maita got taken down early but was able to escape before Iriye forced Maita against the cage and Iriye controlled the fight for the rest of the round, but really laid into Maita with dirty boxing. 10-9 to Iriye again, but I will say this has been by far the funnest fight so far, at least in my opinion

Maita came storming out of the blocks in round three, connecting with some shots as Iriye tried to close the distance. Iriye hit a nice slam when he got the clinch on Maita but it didn't last long, Maita was back on his feet soon. Iriye hit a nice punch but got a one two for his trouble. This is a really good round for both fighters. Maita comes forward again, but misses and Iriye gets to clinch with him, Maita hit a nice few punches, but Iriye also does. When they separate, Maita misses a punch only for Iriye to hit a really nice combination. Maita hits a jab as Iriye comes in for the clinch again but still gets grabbed. Iriye tries his dirty boxing again and lands a lot of good shots but Maita hit an uppercut while against the fence that makes Iriye back up. Maita then charges again but gets starched by Iriye, but recovers. The last minute of the round is Maita pushing and Iriye making sure he doesn't land any. What a final round. This is a 10-9 for Iriye due to landing more punches. The judges agree, with all 30-27's.

Atasuke Iriye (1-2) def. Kaoru Maita (0-1) by Unianimous Decision at 5:00 in Round 3. (Great)

Heavyweight Fight: Juro Joshuyo (0-1) v Takeshi Takaoka (1-4)

Joshuyo and Takaoka spend the entire round coming in to exchange and landing very little. They are both trying to land that big punch and neither are landing it. That is until with thirty seconds to go Joshuyo gets one to land and boom another and Takaoka is down and Joshuyo gets another big shot and the ref steps in. That's enough.

Heavyweight Fight: Juro Joshuyo (1-1) def. Takeshi Takaoka (1-5) by TKO (Strikes) in Round 1.

HONOR Welterweight Title Fight: Seiho Kitamura (4-3) v Naizan Nakadan (2-3)

This is a five round fight, seems it's for a belt. Meant to say that. Anyway, round one is pretty decent, Nakadan does really well to keep Kitamura at bay landing numerous jabs, Kitamura also hits some, but not as much, Nakadan is forcing Kitamura to strike, how odd. Nakadan won that 10-9

Oh man, fifteen seconds in and Kitamura is on his butt after a beautiful three punch combination by Nakadan. Nakadan doesn't want to jump in on Kitamura so he's a little tentative to go after him and Kitamura knows that. On the ground, Kitamura has the advantage and when it goes there after the knockdown, Kitamura grabs a limb and Nakadan gets the hell out of dodge and stands up. Kitamura is back up and Nakadan goes to work again with combination after combination, it's very impressive and really fun to watch. 10-9 to Nakadan again.

Kitamura gets the clinch early and gets Nakadan to the ground but Nakadan just tries to grab onto him, it works pretty well as Kitamura can't lock anything in. Nakadan is able to get back to his feet. Good god, Nakadan goes back to work again, hitting three jabs in a row. Before a nice combination and a body punch. Kitamura is getting smoked. He can't keep Nakadan grounded. Uh, 10-9 to Nakadan, though Kitamura kept control for the first half of the round.

Kitamura was better this round, he got Nakadan to the ground but the three attempts he had at submissions were failures. He did dominate this round though with good ground and pound and very good control. Kitamura wins this 10-9, this could be even in the judges eyes, it's a fascinating watch.

Nakadan is on his back early again but can survive the onslaught of submissions and strikes, but he gets up and lands some really nice strikes before knocking Kitamura down again for the second time in the fight. Nakadan refuses to engage and Kitamura stands up. Kitamura shoots and scores with Nakadan and a few punches get in before Nakadan gets back to the feet. Kitamura then starches Nakadan with a one punch knockdown but he recovers quickly. Nakadan then gets back to work with some solid boxing again, Kitamura seemed to look for that big one punch KO here in between his grappling tries that were failing. And that's it. To me, it's a 49-46 fight to Nakadan but Kitamura did really well in the last two rounds and Kitamura might have won round three in another's eyes. We'll see.

Judge 1: 48-47
Judge 2: 49-46
Judge 3: 49-46

AND NEW HONOR WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION
Naizan Nakadan (3-3) def. Seiho Kitamura (4-4) by Unanimous Decision in 5:00 of Round 5 (Great)

FOTN: Nakadan v Kitamura
KOTN: Joshuyo
SOTN: N/A

Could have seen Kitamura win that fight but Nakadan defended the submissions well and outlanded Kitamura as well as knocking him down twice, never knew Kitamura had hands but he seems to be actually a decent boxer especially after knocking Nakadan down in the final round. That being said, Nakadan won and I agree with that. The other fights were fairly straight forward, we'll be able to discuss future fights as we get to more events. Think I'll do two events next post, just cause that's 10 fights instead of just five.
