No it isn't linked to destiny. It's not coincidence either. If he was on PEDs first time around and didn't get totally clean before the second fight then he's liable to get busted because he's still cheating.

When you see the e-mail comes up regarding young prospects (19-23 typically with 3-0 to 6-0 records) how long does it take them to usually get signed with an organization if letting things develop organically? (I'm playing in just viewing mode (unemployed) and wonder when some of them may get picked up by XCC and other smaller groups.)

Thanks!

That can't be accurately answered as it depends entirely on how the game world is set up at that point in time. If there's only a few companies and they have stuffed rosters, they won't be hiring any time soon and so the chance of someone being signed is very low, for example.

Are there any media for low level regional or "new" companies?

Is there a way to have an active fighter be a guest on a broadcast team for an event? For example Dominick Cruz, Daniel Cormier in real life. Or do you have to wait for them to retire/give them a non fighting contract

Depends on how many people you have left over. Usually I can tell by having to scroll to see all my fighters on the match making screen. Usually if there's less than ten people in each division left, ROUGHLY, I'm pretty satisfied. However, I try really hard to stick to 30 people in each division, and I'm playing as GAMMA in the default data.

That said, I'm not a huge fan of running more than one show a month. Typically I'll deal with the spillover by running a TV show when I need it. One of the problems with this game is that it doesn't really simulate good TV cards that well (however that's both good and bad?), AND it's pretty hard to create great main events. So basically your popularity will, I would imagine, just stay the same by running both a good card and bad card every month, and might even go down.

Good stuff thanks!

Game editor: Edit database. Change the picture folder in Database Info.

Save Game: Go to settings, click Picture Folder on the left side.

It's actually just easier to put every picture in the Default folder on your computer, but make sure there's no folders in the Picture folder.

I try to have at least 2 a month. Sometimes I find myself having bigger gaps with no shows and then having a stacked card, because i'm TERRIBLE at booking the lower tier of fighters. I find myself most familiar with the ranked fighters and keep booking them over and over again as soon as they recuperate

What effects fighter retirements? I've been having a lot of fighters, especially female fighters retire early 30's. Even with decent records with high pop and high ranking
For example Holly Holm was on a 4 fight win streak and in line for a title shot should she had beaten Raquel Pennington. But she lost, despite being my most popular fighter at the time and still sitting top 15 in the female p4p and retired off of 1 loss in 5

I know Holm is a little older than other examples I could've given but I'm curious as if there are certain factors that impact why fighters retire on this game.

There are loads of factors. Their hidden Destiny value (unless that's been turned off by having the retirement age preset in the editor), gender, physical condition, recent form, employment status and the value of any contract they have, their position within the world rankings, and others all play a part.

Ah, perhaps it was the age/gender for Holm then, because like I said she had won 4/5 of her last 5, she was on a pretty lucrative contract for my most popular fighter, on around 8k more than she was valued at per fight with decent bonuses. Think she was #17 on the P4P and #5 on the Bantamweight rankings. She was 37 in my game though.

Just praying Zingano doesn't retire at 36 as she's in my top 3 fighters when it comes to name value and she's ranked #2 in the division
