WEC: The Path Of The Legends


Recommended Posts

I'm using the TapOrSnapV2 #3 database for this one.

 

World Extreme Cagefighting

 

The year is 2011, and it's a good year to be an MMA fan.

 

WEC is now synonymous with fast paced, technical battles, and are now sporting some of the best 135'ers, 145'ers and 155'ers of the world. Under the wing of the UFC, growth is inevitable.

 

The Background Story

 

->The Lightweight Division

 

Right now, the WEC 155 division is on fire. Gilbert Melendez (hired after the ultimate bidding war with Strikeforce) is now the 155 king, after an hard fought UD against Ben Henderson back in WEC 49. He capitalized on that win to get himself a 4 fight win streak, stopping Yves Edwards (TKO in the 1st), Shalorus (Submission in the 1st) and Hermes França (TKO in the 1st).

There are some very tough challenges coming his way, though. Gunnar Nelson (an undefeated submission grappler, coming off great victories over Darabedyan, Masvidal and Casimir), Neer (dropped by the UFC, rebounded with 2 fantastic wins over Cerrone and Varner, both top 5 at that time), and the recently hired Japanese star Hirota, guarantee that 155 won't run out of exciting fights so soon.

 

->The Featherweight Division

 

WEC's flagship division, without a question. With a monster disguised as a tiny Brazilian for champion, 145 keeps producing some of the top fights in the world right now. Jose Aldo is still undefeated in WEC, and after the hugely publicized fight with Faber, he defended his belt 3 more times, KO'ing Chad Mendes, Mike Brown and Bibiano Fernandes.

There are some stars on the rise, tough. Names like Joachim Hensen, Leonard Garcia and Mackens Semerzier all pose interesting challenges for the Brazilian.

 

->The Bantamweight Division

 

Brian Bowles recently avenged his loss to Dominick Cruz, retaking the 135 belt home in the process and winning Fighter Of The Year in 2010. Coming up strong and looking for his rematch, Miguel Torres dispatched Tapia, Valencia and Page (every one of them in the 1st round) and is one win away from the belt.

But there's more to this division than these 2 monsters. Will Campuzano (rumored to be the next on the line for the title shot) has displayed his incredible skills inside the cage, and is a star on the rise. Fighters like Kojima, Mizukagi and Fabiano are also piling up impressive win after impressive win, and are surely on the mix as well.

 

The next scheduled card is WEC.60, and the fights will soon be publicized.

 

Feedback is important guys. I'm very green on this and would love some tips. Of course, predictions are welcome and appreciated.

Oh, and I'm basing my diary on London's, so I hope he doesn't mind.

THE BREAKDOWN

 

MAIN EVENT: Brian Bowles (11-1) © vs Will Campuzano (10-1) for the WEC Bantamweight Championship

Bowles is one of the shiniest stars at 135. A solid wrestler with dynamite in his fists, he's the no. 1 bantamweight of the world right now, and one could make an argument for top 5 Pound-for-Pound.

However, Will Campuzano is no slouch. Equally dangerous both on the ground and on his feet, he's running on a solid and well deserved 4 fight win streak that gave him this opportunity. He will certainly try to make the most of it.

 

CO-MAIN EVENT: Gunnar Nelson (9-0-1) vs Ricardo Lamas (11-1) (Lightweight)

A fantastic fight between 2 rising stars at 155. It's an incredibly hard match to predict; Gunnar Nelson will come into this fight looking to use his superb submission skills to retain his undefeated record, while Lamas is surely going to rely in his great wrestling background to snatch up a victory. A fight with huge implications for the Lightweight Division.

 

Dave Jensen (15-2) vs Duane Ludwig (20-12) (Lightweight)

With both fighters coming into this fight after snapping losing streaks, both of them will try to come and dispatch the other, in order to make a serious run at the crown. Duane "Bang" Ludwig will come in with his regular "punch you in the face" gameplan, and will try to turn this into an all out slugfest; Jensen is a much more technical fighter, and will try to get in close, take Ludwig down, and work some ground and pound or a submission. Whoever manages to implement his gameplan will probably leave with the W.

 

John Franchi (6-4) vs Urijah Faber (24-6) (Featherweight)

On paper, a lopsided fight. But "The California Kid" is on a bad slump (lost in his last outing against LC Davis by UD) and showed terrible finishing instincts. Still, one of the best at 145, a fantastic wrestler who's incredibly hard to finish. Franchi is coming off a win over Roop, and will again take on a better known fighter with his good wrestling skills.

 

Joachim Hansen (21-9-1) vs Chan Sung Jung (13-3) (Featherweight)

Hansen vs Sung Jung is one of the highlights of the night, definitely. Both are incredibly durable, and have solid standup skills. This can turn into a nasty one, fast. On paper, "The Korean Zombie" is the best grappler, but he rarely uses his Judo background anyway.

This one will be the ultimate test for both fighters.

 

Brandon Visher (14-3) vs Rolando Perez (5-4-1) (Featherweight)

With both fighters coming off losses, the headliner of the preliminary card is probably a loser-leaves-town match. Perez will surely take advantage of his good technical striking skills to keep Visher at jab distance, avoiding the big power of his fists. Visher has the heart of a lion, and will keep coming forward until one of the 2 drops.

 

Danny Batten (12-6) vs Tyler Toner (11-2) (Featherweight)

Batten is a submission grappler, a dangerous one at that, and his gameplan will probably involve taking the fight to the ground at some point. Toner is a good submission artist himself, but his striking is one step above Batten's, and that's where his advantage will be.

 

Brad Pickett (21-6) vs Shinishi Kojima (12-4-5) (Bantamweight)

This one will hit the ground fast. Pickett is a fine Jiu Jitsu fighter, currently on a winning streak (Banuelos and Wheeler, both by submission).

Kojima is on a win streak himself (with wins over Dikun by UD and Wineland by submission). A great grappler on his own.

A fight that will determine who goes up to fight the big boys and who drops a few steps in the ladder.

 

Marcus Aurelio (21-10) vs Kamal Shalorus (7-1-1) (Lightweight)

In a classic ground matchup, the Jiu Jitsu fighter (Aurelio) fights the wrestler who employs GnP techniques (Shalorus). While Kamal is trying to rebound from a nasty Submission defeat to the champion Melendez, Marcus is looking to erase the effects of the TKO loss to Ed Ratcliff.

 

Seth Dikun (8-5) vs Dominick Cruz (16-2) (Bantamweight)

The former champion Dominick Cruz is coming off a dominating loss to Brian Bowles, where he was submitted in the 2nd round. His loss made him drop a little in his category, and he will try to correct that as fast as he can.

Dikun is a dangerous fighter both on his feet and on the ground, and after a slick submission victory in his last fight, he's taking on a bottom top 10 to get some of his thunder.

Of course I don't mind. I will give a little bit of advice for you: Don't get disheartened if people don't start predicting and commenting right away, it usually takes time. As long as you are enjoying what you are doing and write in a cohesive manner the readers will soon come and join in. Best of luck and I will be reading.

Thanks a lot mate. But I'm always tentative in things like this; my 1st language isn't english, and I'm unsure about the product quality.

 

But I really enjoy writing, so...

Had you not said that English wasn't your first language I would never have guessed. You write fluently.

Couture: That was a very good win for Kojima! Finishing a Jiu Jitsu fighter by submission. Very nice.

Rutten: Kojima entered this one with the sole purpose of ripping one of Pickett's limbs, and he did it. I expect big things of this young man.

Thanks a lot mate. But I'm always tentative in things like this; my 1st language isn't english, and I'm unsure about the product quality.

 

But I really enjoy writing, so...

 

Don't worry about it, English is my first language and I butcher it all of the time. I think you are doing just fine with the language. Keep up the great work.

I'm starting to wonder if my style of booking makes it easier for you guys.

 

BHK: 7/10 It's scary that this score isn't nearly enough to win this round.

 

London: 7/10 Same thing. Still, very nice prediction skills.

 

Gladiator: 9/10 I promise I didn't gave him the results beforehand. Close to perfect, my friend.

 

Rankings:

 

BHK = 1

Gladiator = 1

London = 0

Our first fight will pit Jesse Moreng against Cole Provence; two solid wrestlers incredibly hard to finish.</span></p><p> </p><p> <span style="color:#0000FF;">Couture: And if history serves us right, this can become a standup war.</span></p><p> </p><p> <span style="color:#008000;">Rutten: We'll see.</span></p><p> </p><p><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="color:#0000FF;"> Couture: In our preliminary match, Cole Province fights Jesse 'Arturo' Moreng.</span></span> </p><p> </p><p> >The fight begins!</p><p> >Province waits out a flurry of punches and then hits a clean jab.</p><p> >Moreng throws a couple of jabs as a set up, then shoots in for a takedown.</p><p> >Province attempts to avoid Moreng as he shoots in.</p><p> >The takedown doesn't work, Province saw it coming and got out of range.</p><p> >An exchange of strikes doesn't really lead to anything.</p><p> >Moreng avoids a quick jab and hits a nice jab.</p><p> >Moreng comes in, looking for a quick takedown.</p><p> >Province stuffs the takedown, so Moreng has to settle for pushing him up against the cage.</p><p> >Province uses his wrestling skills to prevent Moreng from attacking with dirty boxing.</p><p> >We are now at the halfway point of the round.</p><p> >With Province stuck against the cage, Moreng tries to complete a takedown.</p><p> >Moreng gets the takedown, but Province was ready and pulled guard.</p><p> >Moreng attempts to pass guard and gain a better position.</p><p> >Province comfortably blocks the attempt and keeps Moreng in guard.</p><p> >Province tries to pull Moreng in close and pepper him with short strikes, but can't.</p><p> >Moreng tries to pass the guard.</p><p> >After a struggle, he gets to half guard.</p><p> >The end of the round is coming quick, there's under a minute left.</p><p> >Moreng attempts to pass half guard.</p><p> >Province doesn't let Moreng get his leg free, and so half guard remains in place.</p><p> >The time is up, and that's the end of round one.</p><p> </p><p> <span style="color:#008000;">Rutten: Solid first round for Moreng. He seems confident, and getting the takedown against a fellow wrestler will do wonders for his confidence.</span></p><p> </p><p> <span style="color:#0000FF;">Couture: Province has to find a way to negate it, if he wants anything out of this fight.</span></p><p><span style="color:#0000FF;"> </span></p><p><span style="color:#008000;"> Rutten: And here we go, round two!</span></p><p><span style="color:#008000;"> </span></p><p> >Province uses a combination of three punches to get Moreng to cover up, then shoots in looking for a takedown.</p><p> >Province finds his takedown countered, and Moreng ends up with side control.</p><p> >In side control, Moreng throws a couple of punches designed to keep Province guessing.</p><p> >Province tries a sweep from the bottom of side control, but doesn't budge Moreng.</p><p> >Moreng looks to get a mount.</p><p> >He is too good for Province, and has mount.</p><p> >Moreng pounds away on Province with elbows, but few of the shots lands clean.</p><p> >Moreng unloads with big elbows from the mount, but Province is able to deal with most of them.</p><p> >We go past the halfway point of this round.</p><p> >Moreng fires away with punches, but Province deals with them fairly well.</p><p> >Moreng pounds away with punches from the mount, but doesn't really do a great deal of damage.</p><p> >Moreng unloads with big punches from the mount, but Province is able to deal with most of them.</p><p> >Moreng tries to pound on Province, but all the blows are comfortably dealt with.</p><p> >Moreng takes the back as Province tries to sweep him!</p><p> >We have one minute of the round remaining.</p><p> >Moreng fires away with big elbows, but Province covers up and doesn't take any undue damage.</p><p> >Moreng blocks Province as he tries to roll over.</p><p> >Moreng pounds away, but Province covers up and defends them well.</p><p> >The time is up, and that's the end of round two.</p><p> </p><p> <span style="color:#0000FF;">Couture: Another round for Moreng, and Provence needs to go into desperation mode.</span></p><p> </p><p> <span style="color:#008000;">Rutten: I'm sure his corner realizes it too. He'll come out in the third, with the sole intention of finishing.</span></p><p> </p><p><span style="color:#0000FF;"> Couture: Round three begins!</span></p><p> </p><p> >Province fires off a looping punch, but Moreng avoids it.</p><p> >Not letting Province settle at all, Moreng comes in closer.</p><p> >Moreng avoids a jab.</p><p> >Province shoots in, looking for a takedown.</p><p> >Moreng attempts to avoid Province as he shoots in.</p><p> >The takedown is unsuccessful, Moreng avoided Province.</p><p> >Province is looking to turn this into a wrestling match, and is getting in closer to Moreng.</p><p> >Province grabs Moreng and pulls him into a grapple.</p><p> >Province tries to take Moreng down from the grapple.</p><p> >Province can't get the takedown, Moreng defended it well.</p><p> >Jesse Moreng looks very tired out there.</p><p> >Province, controlling the grapple with Moreng, goes for a takedown.</p><p> >Moreng stops the takedown attempt, then uses his wrestling to take control of the grapple.</p><p> >We've now passed the halfway mark in this round.</p><p> >Moreng, controlling the grapple with Province, goes for a takedown.</p><p> >Moreng gets the takedown, but Province was ready and pulled guard.</p><p> >Province tries a sweep from the bottom of the guard, but doesn't budge Moreng.</p><p> >Moreng looks to pass guard and get side control.</p><p> >He can't quite manage to get past guard on this attempt.</p><p> >Province tries to sweep Moreng but can't do it.</p><p> >In guard, Moreng begins working to pass to side control.</p><p> >Moreng isn't able to pass guard on this attempt.</p><p> >Province tries to get double underhooks on Moreng so that he can get some control, but can't get them.</p><p> >We have one minute of the round remaining.</p><p> >Moreng attempts to pass guard.</p><p> >Province is ready for the attempt though, and keeps Moreng firmly in guard.</p><p> >From the looks of things, I don't think Jesse Moreng has much energy left.</p><p> >The time runs out and that round is over, and so is the fight.</p><p> </p><p> >The judges' scores are now being announced.</p><p> >Judge #1 has scored it 30-27 Moreng.</p><p> >Judge #2: 30-27 Moreng.</p><p> >Judge #3 scores the match as 29-28 to Moreng.</p><p> >Making Jesse 'Arturo' Moreng the winner by unanimous decision!</p><p> </p><p> >Official Result: Jesse 'Arturo' Moreng defeats Cole Province by Unanimous Decision.</p><p> </p><p><span style="color:#0000FF;"> Couture: Province was outgrappled all night, and couldn't do anything about it. Solid win for Moreng, he'll go up in the ladder for it.</span></p><p> </p><p><span style="color:#008000;"> Rutten: Province really needs to take a fresh approach to his game. I hope he learns from this.</span></p><p> </p><p> <span style="color:#0000FF;">Couture: And now, to the Main Card!</span></p><p> </p><p> <span style="color:#008000;">Rutten: In our first televised bout, we'll see a clash between David Faulkner against Jorge Masvidal.</span></p><p> </p><p> <span style="color:#0000FF;">Couture: To the interviews!</span></p><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="28273" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div>Faulkner: The losses end tonight.
