What's going on in YOUR game?

Recommended Posts

So far my champion's are as follows for the promotion I created.


Heavyweight - Marcin Tybura who beat Junior Dos Santos by Unanimous Decision. He then called out Brock Lesnar who accepted. So they'll to fight soon on PPV for the belt.


Light Heavyweight- Alexander Gustafsson who just defended his belt for the first time against Corey Anderson, after he won the belt by beating Maurico Rua who surprisingly for once didn't pop for TRT.


Middleweight - Israel Adesanya who is just running rampart through the division. He has wins over David Branch & Kevin Gastelum & is set to defend again against Yushin Okami.


Welterweight- Rory MacDonald who knocked out Nick Diaz with a knee to win the belt. Ben Askren called him out so he defended his belt against Askren and beat Askren via arm bar.


Lightweight- Dan Hooker. Just beat Justin Gaethje via round 1 TKO. Was actually pretty surprised with this. Gaethje had won the belt against Williamy Freire & that division is pretty decent but I thought Gaethje would hold on for a couple defenses.


Women's Featherweight- Cyborg. Beat Gina Carano for the belt. My women's divisions right now definitely lacks name value. I missed out on signing Holly Holms & Amanda Nunes so don't see this changing anytime soon.


Featherweight- Patricio Friere who beat Pat Curran via arm bar to win the belt. He's set to defend against Gilbert Melendez at the upcoming PPV.


Women's Bantamweight- Ronda Rousey. Beat Tate for the belt via sub. Same reason as Women's Featherweight it's not a deep division.


Bantamweight- Henry Cejudo. So far undefeated and beat Rani Yahya for the belt. He's set to defend against Marlon Moraes who technically should be the champ but when he fought Bryan Caraway to decide the first champion Caraway didn't make weight so the Championship wasn't on the line. Moraes is back now & they're fighting soon.


Women's Flyweight- Aisling Daly. You might remember her from being from the same gym as the Notorious One & TUF. She's the current champion after beating Maycee Barber for the belt and is set to defend against Joanee Calderwood at a upcoming PPV.


Women's Strawweight- Claudia Gadelha. Won the belt after beating Mizuki Inoue and is set to defend against Inoue again in a rematch.



In other news.



Forest Griffin is now 2-0.


Michael Bisping can't win a fight.


GSP just got crushed 30 seconds into the first round by TKO by a potentially really unknown.

Doing a Local to Global in the GlobalVerse mod and currently in 2002.


-Trying to Build Lamont Banner as the biggest star in MMA

-Trying to milk the the popularity of Matthew Dean as I build up Monroe

-Asanovic got busted twice for PEDs so that dream of a Light Heavyweight War with Katou got flushed down the toliet.


The Biggest disappointment for me has been probably the middleweights, I get Dean is amazing but everyone seems to just fall so far of actually being a threat.

Now that I'm looking back through and see that people like to talk about Fezzik Vs. Foster. I was building up a fight between these two, but Carter Potter then KO'd Fezzik in 2:28 of the first round.


So I set up a fight between Foster and Potter thinking surely Potter would lose to Foster.... WRONG. He oustruck Foster, stopped his takedowns, and even outgrappled Foster in the clinch on his way to a UD.


At this point I'm like "Potter must have been blessed with a high destiny."


So I give him his well earned title shot against then champion Hiro Arai. Turns out Potter wasn't ready for Hiro Arai. A flurry of punches followed by a headkick led to Potter getting put to sleep.


LMAO that's such a typical scenario in this game I feel. Although yours is even crazier because I've never seen Potter really make it that high up in the rankings in mine.


But I had a similar situation where I was trying to use Rav Kapur to set up a fight between Fezzik and Foster... couple years later, Kapur is still the undefeated champ with 10 defenses. With 2x first round kos of Foster, Fezzik and Kabal. Clearly the undisputed best of the era. Also defeated a surging Murilo Santinho and Kanezane Fujii.... all in the first round. My Kapur has become an absolute savage haha

First, I love this game. I keep coming back to it.


Booking GAMMA, I'm in March 2006. We're the number 1 company with ALPHA hot on our heels. The problem is, I don't have a dominate champion in any weight division.


In the middleweight division, I thought it was going to be Adam White, but after his 3rd title defense, he tested positive for TRT, so I stripped him of the title.


Speaking of, it seems like all my big name fighters are popping on the drug tests. Helio and Jake Keane both popped twice in a row, so I'm having them fight and if they pop, I'm cutting both of them. I run a clean organization here.


The Super Heavyweights aren't built up yet but we're getting there with Teddy Glossop and Kel Ryan basically trading the belt to each other. I'm triyng to add a women's featherweight (heavyweight) division but building their pop is difficult and there aren't too many women in my game. Thinking of doing a reality show to spawn a bunch.

<p>I'm in 2000 on the Cverse1993 DB, with my company Omega FC, now risen from 0 pop to low level national in the States and regional pop in Canada, Mexico and UK.</p><p> </p><p>

Jake Keane just won his second FOTY in a row, and is 20-0 and our lightweight champion. He just defended against Philip Ziskie (14-4) who is also one of our most popular fighters, and will probably next face either Sukarno (12-1) in a rematch as he's climbed back to #2 rank, or Sean Morrison (14-4), who's on a 7 match win streak but just can't seem to grow in popularity or rise higher in the rankings, as he's still just at #5 despite the streak.</p><p> </p><p>

Julio Regueiro (14-5) is set to defend his welterweight title against Alan Kendall in their fifth (5!) match against each other, after finally managing to beat Kendall in their last match for the title, losing the first three. After Kendall was 3-0 against him I was through with Regueiro getting a shot against him, but he managed to climb back to #2 rank, so I had them do ONE LAST MATCH, but of course then the spaniard finally manages to win one, so I can't give him 3 rematches and not give Kendall at least one. Who ever wins the fifth match (the final one for real, I swear. Maybe...) will probably face Nathan Chambers (10-0) next.</p><p> </p><p>

Matthew Dean (15-1) is our middleweight division. He's had a stranglehold on the division (quite literally most of the matches) for a few years now. He's also the company's only person to win a championship in two weight classes so far, as he was the company's first openweight champion back in '93. He's next victim will be Tora Mizwar (12-3-1) who is nowhere near Dean's level, but they have a vicious rivalry going on, so he gets to lose in a main event of a smaller show. His next proper challenger will be decided in a match between Thorbjorn Rekdal (9-1) and Braulio Moura (11-1-1).</p><p> </p><p>

At the top of the light heavyweights is Spencer Rubenstein, who's undefeated at 10-0. He's being chased by the man he toppled as champ, Niko Soldo (10-2) at #2, Jin Katou (23-0) at #3 who's only fought for us once at this point, making his career in Japan and Nicolai Mickiewicz (16-2) at #4 who's a boring af decision machine, who I've tried my best to feed to my top fighters so he'd drop in the rankings so that I could better justify to myself of just cutting his boring ass, but he keeps beating them again and again. I can't put him in a title match (what if he won!?), but I can't not use him either, as he has wins over some of my best fighters. Help me Obi-Jin, you're my only hope...</p><p> </p><p>

Hassan Fezzik (18-2) is at the top of the heavyweights. He won the title from Matthew Dean when I started to introduce weight limits, but lost it in a bit of a shock to Palmer Lette almost immediately after. Lette then went on to hold the belt for just over three years, also winning FOTY in the process, but then finally dropped the belt back to Fezzik at OFC 50: Lette vs. Fezzik II, one of the biggest shows in the company's history. Like in the light heavy division, there is a japanese fighter that has jumped ship to the US and has gold in his eyes. Hiro Arai is 23-0, and in his latest match defeated the former champ Lette via KO. However before Arai can get a title shot Fezzik has to try and cope with another up and coming machine, the #2 ranked Rav Kapur (10-0).</p><p> </p><p>

One mention outside of the title pictures: Jeff Carlton (13-9) has done a HOF worthy career for us, even if he has lost every time it has really counted. At 37 and with two losses to much lesser talent in his latest matches, he's career is winding down, but he's been a true constant for Omega, as he's always been one of our most popular fighters, even though he has literally never won when main eventing, but also in a sense that he's been with the company since OFC 1. He's still popular enough to be main eventing, so I'll probably try and find him one or two jobbers to get a few more wins in, and then let him go out in a blaze of glory losing to the rising young lions of the heavyweight division.</p>

<p>As I stated in the Dynasty section of the site, I'm back in the WMMA bubble once again after a long and dusty journey following the loss of my recent dynasty save. I'm once again playing with UFC with my own updated real world database which features over 3000 changes to fighter, teams, companies, fight history and much, much more. To make the game a little more challenging and a lot more fun to play, I've came up with some stipulations to my game as well as a few changes to the settings. These include:</p><p> </p><p>

- Very aggressive AI hirings</p><p>

- High Random Training Injury (to replicate the real world element of fight pullouts)</p><p>

- Fast Training effectiveness (to replicate the real life progress for fighters joining highly touted teams)</p><p>

- More saturated events for AI organizations to progress fighters records.</p><p> </p><p>

- One retirement talk per year, i.e. I can only try to convince one retired fighter to comeback per year. And of course, it's gotta be somewhat realistic considering the circumstances (therefor, no Brendan Schaub or Ronda Rousey). In the first year, I convinced Anthony 'Rumble' Johnson to make his Heavyweight debut after a few years away from the sport and during my second year, I talked Ben Askren into one final run following his successful kayfabe hip replacement, in hopes of redeeming his catastrophic UFC run.</p><p>

- No signing of fighter with less than 4 straight wins, and no signings that wouldn't make sense out of a business perspective.</p><p> </p><p>

I started the game right before UFC 251. My plan was to book all the Fight Island fights in Southeast Asia as well as the announced Apex Center cards to date. Jorge Masvidal shocked the world when he knocked out Kamaru Usman in the third round to become the UFC Welterweight Champion of the world while Volkanovski and Yan defeated Max and Aldo respectively. One week later, Joseph Benavidez realized his dream and became the UFC Flyweight Champion of the world after a Unanimous Decision victory over Deiveson Figueiredo.</p><p> </p><p>

For the other Championship fights during my one year (July 2020 to July 2021), the following bouts has taken place:</p><p> </p><p>

HW: Stipe defended the title against DC in a Split Decision victory. He faces Francis for the title up next.</p><p>

LHW: Jones defended the title against Blachowicz with a Guillotine in Round 2. He faces Reyes for the title up next.</p><p>

MW: Adesanya defended the title against Costa with a KO in Round 5. He faces Whittaker for the title up next.</p><p>

WW: Masvidal won the title against Usman with a KO in Round 3 as well as defeated Leon Edwards with a KO in Round 1. He faces Colby Covington up next.</p><p>

LW: Khabib defended the title against Gaethje in a UD. He faces Tony Ferguson up next.</p><p>

FW: Volkanovski defended the title against Max with a RNC in Round 5 as well as against Zabit with a RNC in Round 4. He faces Brian Ortega up next.</p><p>

BW: Yan first won the title against Aldo with a KO in Round 3, but he lost it to Marlon Moraes in his first title defense in his native Russia with a KO in Round 2. Moraes faces the winner of Cory Sandhagen and Dominick Cruz up next.</p><p>

FLW: Benavidez first won the title against Figueiredo with a UD, but lost the title against Alexandre Pantoja in his first title defense with a KO in Round 1. Pantoja faces Brandon Moreno up next.</p><p> </p><p>

WFW: The title was made dormant after UFC decided the Women's Featherweight division was too weak and shallow. Nunes didn't defend her title before it being made inactive.</p><p>

WBW: Nunes hasn't defended her title yet but will face Valentina Shevchenko in a champ vs. champ fight up next.</p><p>

WFLW: Shevchenko defended her title against JoJo Calderwood with a KO in Round 1. She moves up one division to face Nunes for the Women's Bantamweight title and to become the second ever female double champ.</p><p>

WSW: Zhang defended her title against Rose Namajunas with a KO in Round 1. She faces Tatiana Suarez for the title up next.</p><p> </p><p>

During the save, we have also witnessed the trilogy fight between Conor and Nate, ending in a KO victory for Conor in the second round, a retirements for Daniel Cormier, following two straight losses to Stipe and Curtis Blaydes, and for Carlos Condit, following his sixth straight loss against former TUF winner Court McGee. Both DC and Condit was later inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.</p><p> </p><p>

Other notable things around the MMA world:</p><p>

- Demetrious Johnson lost against Adriano Moraes in ONE Championship despite being a -900 favorite. Moraes is now regarded as the best Flyweight in the world while DJ has teased the idea of returning to the UFC one more time before retiring. The other highly talked about ex-UFC champ in ONE, Eddie Alvarez, lost against Shinya Aoki in the Japanese fighter retirement bout. </p><p>

- Michael Chandler shocked Bellator when he opted to not sign a new deal with the company. The American instead choose to sign with Polish organization KSW for a enormous contract. Chandler lost a Split Decision in his KSW debut for the Lightweight title against champion Norman Parke. Chandler was a -550 favorite in the bout. Another one of KSW big stars, Mateusz Gamrot, lost his last bout with the company against the extremely talented Salahdine Parnasse before leaving for rival company FNG. This was Gamrot's first defeat in his professional MMA career. KSW Featherweight champ Parnasse on the other hand is still undefeated.</p><p>

- Siblings Angela and Christian Lee, former ONE Championship champions, has both signed big deals with the UFC. The pair is thought to be the company's attempt to create new stars in the lucrative Asian market. Neither fighter has yet debuted.</p>

<span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">"Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen, I am Tom Belfort and you join me at this time for a retrospective look at the career of 'The King of Ground and Pound', James Foster.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

Foster ruled the GAMMA Heavyweight division with an iron fist and a strong chokehold for almost 7 full years after becoming the second-ever Heavyweight champion. Foster suffered the first loss of his MMA career in the main event of GAMMA 50 where he was KO'd in the 3rd round of his fight against Rav Kapur allowing Kapur to become the new champion of the division. A 9-month hiatus then occurred before he returned to the octagon and defeated Tony McCall in a 1st round submission victory at GAMMA 58 and he was immediately back in the title picture. </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

February 2003 and we had the rematch, 1 year since their last bout, as Kapur vs Foster for the Heavyweight title main event GAMMA 61. For the better part of four rounds, Rav Kapur was making the former champion look silly. Foster opted for trying to take down the big fella and succeeded more often than not but once they got to the ground, Kapur took control and began pounding away as Foster simply endured and survived. In the dying seconds of the fourth round, it was looking like Foster was going to need a miracle to win and it seemed to come in the form of a rare mistake from Kapur. Kapur was caught clean with an uppercut that immediately floored him, Foster capitalised and began pounding away as the ref called off the fight with only 1 second of the fourth round left. Controversial? Probably. But Foster didn't care and he became the first-ever two-time Heavyweight champion in GAMMA history. </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

His first defence didn't occur until November of that year where he faced Terron Cabal in only the Frenchman's second fight in the company. The fight was fairly even and reached the 5th round but Foster didn't seem to have the killer instinct he'd had years before and Cabal KO'd Foster to take the Heavyweight title and give James only the second loss of his career but it was his second loss in 3 fights. Were Foster's best days behind him?</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

8 months later, we'd begin to find out. Hassan Fezzik, arguably the biggest named heavyweight fighter in the world alongside Foster had recently retired from MMA after leaving Alpha-1, The retirement lasted all of a month before he would return to the fight world now fighting for GAMMA and the match was made official. Foster vs Fezzik. Icon vs Icon at GAMMA 73. Sure, both fighters may have been past their best and so it was a few years later than fans would've liked, but still. Finally, fans would get to see who the true Greatest of All-Time Heavyweight would be. It seemed the answer was Fezzik. 25 seconds into the second round, Fezzik connected with a crushing hook that floored Foster and he followed up with heavy shots that forced the referee to call it off. Fezzik showed he still had some gas in the tank and proved to the world that: Yes, he was better than James Foster. Foster had now lost 3 times. From being seemingly invincible to now beatable. What next for The King of Ground and Pound?</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

Another 9-month hiatus, of course. As talk of potential retirement swirled around the rumour mill, Foster remained tight lipped on the subject. He returned to the octagon in February of 2005 at GAMMA 78 to fight the Russian Bear, Aleksander Ivanov. Ivanov's record in GAMMA at this stage was 5-2 and he was coming fresh off of a KO victory against Lefter Oktay. It may have seemed like a big hill for Foster at his current stage but the man always wanted to try and fight and prove himself against the best. He had spent his career seemingly ignoring critics who had claimed he wasn't as good as he seemed due to a weak Heavyweight division. Well, now, the Heavyweight division in GAMMA was stacked with some tremendous fighters and Foster would now prove that he was all the hype he'd been thought of in years previous. However, he was now 38 and it was beginning to show.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

He lost in the 3rd round vs Ivanov. The punch that knocked out Foster cold was so vicious and powerful that Ivanov broke his fingers in the process and didn't fight for another 9 months. So what now for our MMA legend? You've lost your last 3 fights and you don't have the same aura you used to. Do you ride off into the sunset and avoid the risk of tainting your legacy anymore? Or do you stay and fight and prove that you've still got what it takes? James Foster chose option #2.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

7 months after losing to Ivanov, Foster lined up to face Mason Archer. The former Alpha-1 fighter was fresh off defeating Pai Cheng but had lost his first two fights and so sat with a record of 1-2. 'The Merchant of Menace' was still a formidable task for Foster and at GAMMA Fight Night 10, the two met in a fight that lasted 6 minutes and 5 seconds. The first round was exhilarating action and the crowd were on their feet in what was proving to be a fantastic main event. At the minute mark of round 2, Archer landed a quick-fire combination that had Foster reeling and a few more heavy shots was all it took for the ref to intervene. A career boosting win for Archer. Another potential nail in the coffin of the fight career that belonged to James Foster.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

Now, they say that all fighters, no matter their stage of life, have one last great fight left in them. Foster had gone from being on top of the world and the biggest name in MMA to seemingly a shell of his former impervious self. The decision to retire from something you truly love is never an easy one and for a lot of fighters, it can be all they've ever known so to give it up isn't an easy task. This would prove to be the case for Foster. Despite suffering four losses in a row after having only lost once in his previous twelve, James Foster was not ready to walk away from the sport yet. 7 months after his loss to Archer he stood in the octagon opposite Sylvester Collins. Collins had a GAMMA record of 2-3 at this stage and was on the lower end of the Heavyweight division rankings but a fight against one of the all-time greats would surely fire him up as it could catapult his career.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

Remember earlier when I said all fighters have one, last great fight left in them? Well for James Foster, this was certainly it. It was the shortest fight of the legends illustrious career at only 43 seconds, but it was a brief 43 second glimpse into the glory days of Foster. He seemed lighter on his feet, he seemed more concentrated than before and he got the first straight Knock Out victory of his career with as clean an uppercut as anyone's ever seen. The arena erupted in cheers and Foster had his first win in over 3 years. Was this the optimum time to retire? To go out on a victory, with the adulation and adoration of the fans behind you? Or... would this be the time, at 40 years old, to call out the biggest name in the MMA world and a man who had recently just gone on an 10 fight winning streak? You know where this is going. Of course, seemingly against all sound logic, James Foster extended a challenge to Lars-Gunnar Ekberg. Go big or go home, right?!</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

On the back of an 10 fight winning streak, Ekberg had become the biggest and most notorious name in the Mixed Martial Arts world. He had taken down Archer, Ivanov and Cabal (all names that Foster had recently lost to) on his way to challenging Rav Kapur for the Heavyweight title and attempting to end the Englishman's second reign as champion, Ekberg had won 8 of those 10 fight via submission and his ground submission game was something to truly be feared. But, he couldn't seem to lock in a submission on the massive 'Beast from Birmingham' and a jaw-shattering roundhouse kick KO'd the Swede</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

Foster and Ekbrerg would be the main event of GAMMA 90 in August 2006 The match lasted the better part of 4 rounds and, to many, it was surprising it lasted that long. That's not to disrespect the competitors in any way but Ekberg wasn't known for hanging about with only one of his previous 11 fights reaching the decision stage. Ekberg was absolutely determined to make the legend submit, something that Foster had never done in his career. The two grappled violently on the ground and, it was counted, Foster managed to slip and counter 11 different submission attempts from the Swede. A true measure of the ground game of Foster. However, 3 quick transitions in succession proved too much for Foster to manage and on the 12th attempt, Ekberg managed to lock in a Kimura and force Foster to submit for the first time in his career. Was this the sign that Foster had been waiting for? It seemed so. Grabbing the microphone after the main event, James Foster officially announced his retirement from MMA and would walk away from the sport. </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

In the days after his retirement, it was announced by GAMMA president, Matt Tripp, that James Foster would be the inaugural inductee into the GAMMA Hall of Fame. A 2-time Heavyweight Champion. The former #1 Heavyweight fighter in the world and one of the main men who carried GAMMA into the modern era and cemented them as, arguably, the biggest MMA organisation in the world. Many fighters will come and go as the world spins round but there will forever be only one, James Foster."</span></span></p><p> </p><p>

I am currently sitting at June 2005 as the CEO of WEFF with the default rosters.


Featherweight: 29yo Piper Evergood (1 defence, 18-4 overall)

She’s been dominant, sitting on a 10-win streak. She took the title from an un-retired 35yo Hester Maclean, whom she knocked out in 2 punches. Until her recent title defence the belt had a streak of 7 bouts that ended up with new champions.


Bantamweight: 30yo Pamela O’Neill (10 defences, 23-1 overall)

If Evergood has been dominant, O’Neill has been otherworldly. Her last championship match gave her the worst odds I’ve seen in a long time at -580. 2-time Fighter of the Year, with the other and most recent going to Honey Due.


Flyweight: 30yo Daniela Sadorra (0 defences, 16-1 overall)

She won it in a one-night tournament after it was vacated due to the former champion Honey Due retiring at age 32 after 3 title defenses.


Other notables:

28yo Dajit Samir: 15-4-1 record, very talented but she never won a title due to being decimated on takedowns. Literally felt like a 100% rate against her. Former #4 pound for pound fighter. Currently unemployed because she was suspended for PEDs. She is finally improving her takedown defense though.


21yo Shanaugh Stoltman: 12-5 record. Former Rookie Fighter of the Year, starting off her career 8-0 and a featherweight title win over Alyson Arroway (former #2 pound for pound) at 19 years old. Hasn’t found her groove since, going 1-2 over her last 3 bouts (all against former champions).


22yo Erin Distefano: 9-3 record. Probably my best prospect fighter who is sitting at #16 pound for pound. Her last fight was a loss to champion Piper Evergood. Has a 98.4% boxing power rating. Mhmm.


27yo Katy-Jayne Paulson (13-5) and 27yo Natalie Rogers (13-4): My two best fighters who have never held a championship. Paulson has been blocked by O’Neill, going 0-2 against her in title bouts. Rogers just has never had an opportunity, pulling out of the aforementioned title tournament due to “not feeling good enough” or something like that.

My favourite thing about playing real world mods is fantasy booking guys like Ninja into real competitors at their weight class instead of fodder for heavyweights. This was also my first UFC card in Brazil and it was a smashing success. Silva just lost the title by wrestling to Filho, who wrestled Marquardt in the main event to defend it. I'm really hoping Ninja beats him up.</p>

I am now sitting at March of 2008 still as WEFF with the default rosters.




Featherweight: 25yo Erin Distefano (6 defences, 19-3)

I mentioned her in my last post as my best prospect, and now she’s probably my 2nd best fighter having gone 10-0 since. She took the belt from Shaunaugh Stoltman who had beaten Piper Evergood. She’s currently my most popular fighter at max Canadian popularity and one of two fighters at high level international (Canada, the other being Pamela O’Neil).


Bantamweight: 25yo KT ‘The Flash’ McManamara (0 defences, 15-6)

McManamara really the main reason for the update, as she unseated 33yo Pamela O’Neill after 19 title defences. She really hasn’t been overly successful in the company otherwise (7-4 in WEFF), but she’s quickly improved and is currently on a 5-win streak.


Flyweight: 29yo Natalie ‘Rocky’ Rogers (6 defences, 21-4)

Rogers was also mentioned earlier as a strong fighter who never held the belt. Fortunately for her, she achieved that milestone and has held on to it dominantly through 5 KOs/TKOs and a 49-46,50-45,50-45 unanimous decision. She’s my best overall fighter without a doubt.


Strawweight: 25yo ‘Alley Cat’ Lissette Mercier (6 defences, 18-1)

The Strawweight division was added after my previous post, and Mercier has been the only fighter to hold the belt after winning the introduction tournament. She’s a one-dimensional fighter that relies on using her strength to out-wrestle her opponent. Despite her strong takedown, ground striking, and submission skills, Mercier is content on smothering her opponents against the cage, with all 6 of her defences being 5-round decisions. I do wish the control time was tracked, because it literally is all she does.


Other notables:


33yo Pamela ‘The Truth’ O’Neill (32-2): Obviously O’Neill is worth mentioning. She was the Bantamweight champion from February 2002 to February 2008. Unfortunately, her age means her skills are on a quick decline and she’s no longer able to continue her dominance. Who knows, maybe she has another run in her.


24yo ‘The Natural Born Killer’ Shaunaugh Stoltman (17-7): Stoltman has consistently been top 3 in the division. While she can beat any other fighter, current champion Distefano has currently been insurmountable in their two previous matchups. Their last bout ended only 39 seconds into the fight when Stoltman was TKO’d.


24yo Idina Mickelwhite (13-6): The last to round out the top 3 of the featherweights, Mickelwhite and Stoltman are often trading #2 and #3. And much like Stoltman, Mickelwhite currently sits 0-2 against the current champion Distefano. I don’t usually like giving fighters more than 2 fights against a champion in a short period, but these two are clearly the top challengers and so it’s difficult to justify doing otherwise.


22yo Elisa ‘The Main Man’ Gosselin (8-0, 3-0 in WEFF): Pretty much a pure boxer, Gosselin is who I’d pick for my best prospect. Although she has quickly risen in the ranks and sits at #4 in the weak Strawweight division, she is far from a complete, rounded fighter and will need to improve to truly be a highlight of the division.


29yo ‘Glamourous G.’ Gianna Russo (14-8), 30yo ‘Wild Thing’ Katy-Jayne Paulson (19-6), and 33yo Rennaya Rives (22-2): These are the fighters I’m highlighting as the best fighters to never hold a belt. Russo and Paulson are #2 and #3 respectively in the Bantamweight division and O’Neill’s reign of terror is over, so they both have the opportunity to be at the top. Rives has won every fight of hers in the company except her two title bouts. Both of those bouts were TKO losses, one to Honey Due and one to current champion Natalie Rogers (Roger’s most recent defence).

I’m in the Spring of 2022 in a UFC mod, here are my title holders and some interesting things happening:


Heavyweight: Francis Ngannou is the champ after beating Derrick Lewis for the title who had previously beaten Stipe. Ngannou defended once against Tuivasa who was on a roll. He’s not about to fight Jon Jones who was stripped of the LHW belt after testing positive and came back as a heavyweight where he wrecked Walt Harris. Derrick Lewis is fighting Justin Willis in a #1 contender fight and Cyril Gane is closing in on a title shot too.


Light Heavyweight: After Jones tastes poaitive Volkan Oezdemir won the title against Blachowicz. Eventually Volkan lost it in a match with Shogun in Brazil. Shogun was unbeatable for some reason, but then lost his first defense to Ion Cutelaba who is about to face Dominick Reyes for his first defense. The division needs fresh blood and I have Cory Hendricks, Punahele Soriano and Jiri all on a roll and closing in on the top 10.


Middleweight: Paulo Costa beat Adesanya and defended the belt several times before losing the belt to Rafael Lovatl Jr. Adesanya missed a year after dropping the belt because of legal problems. Lot of contenders here with Whittaker, Moustakas, Weidman, Adesanya and Costa all vying for a title shot. Gastelum and Brendan Allan are moving up the rankings too.


Welterweight: Another old man resurgence, Robbie Lawler is a wrecking machine and ended Kamaru Usman’s title run after a lot of guys lost to Usman. Lawler is set to defend against Warlley Alves who is red hot. I’m trying to avoid giving Covington a third title shot cause his fights are boring in the game, but he beats everyone unless it’s for a title.


Super Lightweight: Created this division and Vicente Luque and Justin Gaethje are about to fight for the title after a Tournament To crown a champion. I’ve also been running a TUF season with guys in this division which includes Jordan. Burroughs.


Lightweight: This is the real shocker...the champ is Gregor Gillespie. Gaethje best Khabib and then lost to Conor and Conor won a few fights before losing to Gillespie. The top contenders right now are Donald Cerrone, Kevin Lee and Renato Carneiro.


Featherweight: The champion here is Mirsad Bektic who beat Kattar who had beat Volkanovski. Bektic just best Volkanovski in his first defense after Volkanovski. beat Cejudo. Now Bektic is facing Zabit. A.J. McKee and Lance Palmer are next in line right now.


Bantamweight: Another one that has changed hands a lot, but Petr Yan just beat Jose Aldo to take the title. Dillashaw and Moralez have also held the title. Yan is now on hiatus so I likely have to do an interim title which looks like it might be Aldo vs Garbrandt.


Flyweight: Joseph Benavidez is unbeatable. He’s also like my most popular fighter now. He’s beaten a bunch of dudes, and now is getting ready to fight Ben Nguyen. Trying to build up Tagir Ulbakenov for a second title shot cause his first fight with Benavidez was wild.


Women’s Featherweight: Amanda Nunes has been dominating here and just beat Ketlen Vieira. Macy Chiasson and Kayla Harrison are fighting for the next title shot and Felicia Spencer is probably close to earning another shot.


Women’s Bantamweight: Aspen Ladd shocked the world and best Amanda Nunes to take this belt. She defended it once and then got seriously hurt and is out for a year. The interim title is between Sarah Moras and Pannie Kianzad. I don’t think I have to tell you this is my worst division. I may move Schevchenko up just for the star power.


Women’s Flyweight: Montana de La Rosa bear Schevchenko after The Bullet had defended a ton of times and was one of my biggest draws. The two women are now coaches for TUF and about to rematch. Waiting in the wings is Maycee Barber, Gillian Robertson, Ariana Lipski, Joanna and Mackenzie Dern. This division has been a lot of fun.


Women’s Strawweight: Rose Namajunas best Welli Zhang and is cleaning out this division. She’s about to face Esparza in a trilogy fight and then hopefully a rematch with Virna Jandiroba which was a fight of the year winner. This division has had a lot of fun fights, but needs fresh faces.

What mod are you using for this?


Dawn of MMA - it starts in 1993 so my game has been going on for about 14 years now. Ninja did smash Filho, first by decision and then he knocked him out with an intercepting knee in the first round of the rematch. It was pretty sweet.

How would you guys handle it?


Playing Global-Verse, which is GREAT! Foster was on a tear early on, making numerous title defenses. Then, I signed Fezzik, and once he worked his way up, he has beaten Foster twice. 1st fight, where Fezzik won the title, was the best I've ever seen on the game. Rematch, Fezzik KO'd Foster in the 2nd round. 2 years later, Foster & Fezzik are still #1 and #2, however, Kurt has made his way up to #3, which hasn't been easy for him. He has also developed a small beef with Foster along the way.


My year-end December fight card is here. Would you have a 3rd fight between Fezzik-Foster now, with Kurt getting the winner or would you have Foster fight Kurt and then the winner fight champion Fezzik? If it helps, Fezzik vs Foster is a great main event and Foster vs Kurt is a great main event, but, Fezzik vs Kurt is only a strong main event so that fight is basically out of the 3-fight triangle right now. Another quick thought, my predication is that either Foster or Fezzik will crush Kurt so it will ultimately end up Fezzik vs Foster III.
