    I wonder, though, how big of a deal Shamrock now is in the context of the larger sports universe. Like, he went from regular reality "Human cockfighting champion" to "Guy who choked the shit out of Mike Tyson, the baddest dude who ever lived", making Shamrock the baddest dude who ever lived by the transitive property. Does this make him a huge star in WWF if he signs with them in the late 90s, swinging the pendulum of the Monday Night War early? Does this affect Tyson's getting signed and bringing in the numbers for Mania 14, since a regular dude on your roster has already beaten him? I don't know why *that* is the thing I'm fixating on, but it is.

    Breaking News....


    Associated Press, December 5th 1995 the report is in that UFC Undisputed World Champion Ken Shamrock has vacated his title and signed a contract with Ted Turner's World Championship Wrestling. The announcement came as a shock due to the way the news broke. Shamrock appeared unannounced and unadvertised on WCW's flagship Monday night prime time cable show on TNT entitled WCW Monday Nitro. Rumors are that Shamrock's contract is for 2 years and is in the high six figures. Further rumors on AOL chat rooms is that Shamrock could be working with Hulk Hogan in an angle that sees Shamrock double cross Hogan and join the Four Horsemen, leading to a major Shamrock vs Hogan pay per view match sometime next Spring.


    Ken Shamrock's victory over Mike Tyson this past Summer sold over 1 million pay per views and generated over $50 million in revenue. Shamrock's rematch against Dan Severn in September failed to achieve the same level of success on pay per view but it was still a major financial success for the UFC as they sold out the 17,000+ seat Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale New York, drawing an estimated live gate of over $780,000. Shamrock was taken to a time limit draw by Dan Severn and many fans feel like Severn would have won if there were judges. Shamrock issued a statement Tuesday morning at a press conference held with Ted Turner by his side. Shamrock stated that he felt like he had climbed the mountain the UFC and that there was no more challenge and that uncle Ted made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Shamrock closed the press conference saying that WCW is where the big boys play. The UFC was in negotiations with Shamrock about a long term contract and a third fight against Dan Severn. No word yet on the UFC's plans now for their vacant World Title, many speculate that it could be on the line in the upcoming Ultimate Ultimate 95 pay per view scheduled for later this month.

    UFC Ultimate Ultimate '95
    Press Conference/Weigh Ins



    December 15th, 1995
    Mammoth Gardens
    Denver, CO



    The UFC returns to the building where it all started tomorrow night for the special 2 year anniversary special, the McNichols Arena in Denver Colorado. Many late minute changes were made to the show in the aftermath of Ken Shamrock's vacating the Undisputed UFC World Championship and leaving the Octagon to enter the Pro Wrestling world just weeks ago. Originally there was a tournament scheduled with all of the best fighters in the UFC past events up to this point. First former 2 time tournament champion Rickson Gracie turned down an invitation to enter the tournament. Just days after negotiations with Rickson Gracie fell apart, Ken Shamrock dropped his title and left the UFC. Now the format has been changed. The Undisputed Title is on the line in the main event in a fight between Dan Severn and Marco Ruas. The tournament has been changed to a standard single match format, we will have a traditional "card" with 7 matches featuring some of the best talent we've seen in the UFC so far.

    Dan Severn failed to capture the Undisputed Championship in his fight with Ken Shamrock at UFC 7 but many fans feel like Severn dominated Shamrock and would have won the fight if there were judges. Due to the controversy of the fight the UFC has set up a judging system, three judges will determine a winner if a fight goes the time limit from now on. Before drawing with Shamrock at UFC 7, Severn was on a tear, winning back-to-back tournaments at UFC 5 and 6 with brutal domination. Some fans feel like Shamrock left the UFC because he was running from The Beast. Severn's opponent in the main event will be "The King of the Streets", Marco Ruas, undefeated Brazilian that ran the table in the tournament at UFC 7 in spectacular fashion. Ruas defeated Paul Varelans in the first round even though he gave up nearly 100 pounds to him. Ruas scored a quick submission over the alternate Mark Hall in the second round before stopping Minoru Suzuki in the finals. Ruas and Severn are at the top of the food chain in The Octagon, tomorrow night they will hook it up and we will have a new UFC Undisputed World Champion.

    Tank Abbott made a strong impression in his UFC debut back at UFC 6, quickly becoming a fan favorite not only for his brutal fighting style but also for his brash attitude. Tank came up short in his fight against Dan Severn in the finals of the UFC 6 tournament but he returns at the Ultimate Ultimate 95. Tank's opponent Dave Beneteau was an alternate for the Canadian wrestling team in the 1988 Olympics and was also a finalist in the UFC 5 tournament. Beneteau made a splash at UFC 5 with his barbaric stoppage of Asbel Cancio in the first round. The tough Canadian made it to the finals of the tournament where he was defeated by Dan Severn. Beneteau returned for the UFC 6 tournament where he lost in the first round via submission to Oleg Taktarov.

    Minoru Suzuki holds 2 submission victories over Ken Shamrock in Japan and proved to be one of the most dynamic submission artists in the UFC in the UFC 7 tournament when he broke Remco Pardoel's arm in the first round. Suzuki advanced to the finals after defeating Volk Han in a fight that many of the hardcore fans hail as one of the best, most technical fights in UFC history so far. Fatigue played a major factor when Suzuki lost in the finals to Marco Ruas later in the evening. Suzuki returns to The Octagon to face "The Russian Bear" Oleg Taktarov. Oleg is a master of Russian Sambo and put his skills on display at UFC 6 when he defeated the much bigger Dave Beneteau with an impressive rolling kneebar submission. Oleg lost in the second round of the UFC 6 tournament to Dan Severn in a brutal, bloody fight. Oleg won the respect of the UFC fans by refusing to give up in his loss against Severn even though he was badly beaten.

    One man in the UFC has won over the fans with his look, his intensity, and his outrageous character inside and outside The Octagon, and that man goes by one name; Kimo. Kimo is back by popular demand after he made Rickson Gracie look human back at UFC 3 in a losing effort. Kimo returned for UFC 4 and lost again in the first round to Volk Han in another thrilling and violent fight. Kimo scored one of the most brutal stoppages at UFC 7 when he took out the very big, very dangerous Bart Vale in the first round, finally earning his first victory inside The Octagon. Kimo broke a bone in his hand during the fight and was forced to withdraw from the tournament. Kimo returns to The Octagon at the Ultimate Ultimate to take on "The Ghetto Man" Joe Charles, a veteran that took on Dan Severn in the opening round of UFC 5.

    Masakatsu Funaki is one of the founding fathers of the Pancrase fighting league in Japan and is widely regarded as one of the most advanced submission experts in the world. Funaki made his UFC debut back at UFC 2 where he lost to eventual tournament champion Rickson Gracie in the second round. Funaki finally returns to the UFC to face Steve Jennum, a Ninjitsu expert that was a semi-finalist in both UFC 3 and 5. Jennum made his name when he upset Oleg Taktarov in the first round of UFC 5 where Oleg was one of the odds on favorites to win. The only two losses on Jennum's record are against two of the best ever, Rickson Gracie and Dan Severn.

    Bas Rutten is a product of the Japanese Pancrase association where he used his Dutch Kickboxing background and an improved grappling game to dominate recently. Rutten failed in both of his bids to capture UFC tournament gold back at UFC 2 and 4. Rutten defeated Remco Pardoel in the first round of UFC 2 only to lose to Volk Han by submission in the second round. Rutten returned at UFC 4 with an impressive TKO over Minoru Suzuki. Bas would lose to eventual champion Dan Severn in the second round after Severn was able to ground him and negate his lethal striking skills. Now Rutten returns for one more run at UFC gold and he takes on one of the students from Ken Shamrock's Lions Den training team, the debuting Scott Bessac.

    Mark Hall is one of the smallest competitors in UFC history so far but he has one of the biggest hearts when the deadbolt locks on the door of The Octagon. Hall defeated the bigger Harold Howard in a dark alternate match before the PPV went on air at UFC 7. Hall would get his chance to enter the tournament in the second round as a replacement for the injured Kimo. Hall fearlessly took on Marco Ruas but was quickly dispatched with a submission. Hall's opponent Trent Jenkins is a freestyle fighter making his UFC debut.

    Denver Colorado






    The Ultimate Fighting Championship....





    Over the past 2 years nothing in the sports world has generated as much controversy or as much violence....





    Now, just as much controversy burns inside The Octagon as it does outside of it...





    Just weeks ago Ken Shamrock shocked the martial arts world when he vacated his title and stepped down from his throne as the King of the Octagon.





    Now, the vacant title is on the line in a fight between the two most dangerous warriors on the planet...





    The man that pushed Shamrock to his limits in his final fight, Dan "The Beast" Severn...











    Undefeated UFC 7 tournament champion, "The King of the Streets" Marco Ruas...











    A new Champion will be crowned and 12 of the UFC's big boys return to the ultimate proving ground in reality combat, and they aren't here to play...





    There are no rules...





    Two men enter... only one man walks away as the new Undisputed King of the UFC. The time has come to open up the gates...





    If it's not in the Octagon.... It's not real....






    Bruce Beck, Olympic Gold Medalist wrestler Jeff Blatnick and Kickboxing legend Don "The Dragon" Wilson open up the show on the commentary booth. We are live in the Mcnichols Sports Arena, the home of the Denver Nuggets and the site where the very first UFC event hit the martial arts world like a tornado 2 years ago. The arena is sold out and the fans are ready to open up the gates of The Octagon. The camera shot showcases the ominous 8 sided structure before focusing in on one of the fans signs in the crowd...




    The commentators go over the rules as a computer graphic flashes across the screen. Bruce Beck speaks in a very serious and ominous tone as he gives a disclaimer saying that what you are about to witness is for mature audiences only, saying that this is not an exhibition, what you are about to see is live combat. "This is real, this is brutal."



    The Rules of The Octagon


    • No Biting.

    • No eye gouging.

    • Undercard matches will have a 20 minute time limit, the main event will have a 30 minute time limit.

    • Fights are won by knockout, submission, referee stoppage, or if a fighter's corner throws in the towel. If the fight goes the time limit three judges will declare a winner.

    • Referee Big John Mccarthy has the right to stand the fight up if there is a stalemate on the ground.


    Ring announcer Michael Buffer brings the arena to it's feet with his opening "LETS GET READY FOR THE ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHAAAAAP!" introduction. The commentators put the spotlight on the referee for a moment saying that there have been 0 serious injuries inside The Octagon so far, and the credit for that goes to former Los Angeles police officer and black belt martial artist Big John Mccarthy, our referee for tonight's show. John Mccarthy gets the opening fight underway with his trademark statement...




    Are you ready?!----->




    <-----Are you ready?!





    WELL LETS GET IT ON!

    Ultimate Ultimate Match
    Oleg Taktarov(Russian Sambo) vs Minoru Suzuki(Hybrid Wrestling)

Oleg stays conservative and lands punches to the body as the final minute expires. Big John steps in and stops it after the 20 minute time limit expires.

    ||||Intermission||||



    During the intermission Don Wilson conducted an interview with the owner of Semaphore Entertainment Group, or SEG, the owners of the UFC. Head of SEG Robert Meyrowitz speaks during the interview about the situation regarding Ken Shamrock and his sudden and unannounced departure for the scripted pro wrestling world. Meyrowitz says that Shamrock's decision came as a shock to them because they believed they were close to signing Shamrock to a long term deal that would have made him one of the highest paid fighters in combat sports. Meyrowitz says that Shamrock vacated his title and stepped away from The Octagon but that the door will always be open for him to come back. Meyrowitz sends his best wishes to Ken Shamrock and says that he will go down in history as one of the all time greats and one of the true pioneers for the UFC.

    Meyrowitz goes on about the plans for the UFC from here on out. Politicians in the US want the UFC banned and taken off of pay per view. The UFC is currently in court with a major lawsuit against the state of New York and regulations are being formed nationwide to outlaw the UFC from holding live events. Due to the current situation the UFC has set UFC 8 to be in Puerto Rico. UFC 8 will see the return of the one night 8 man tournament and this tournament will have the theme of "Davis vs Goliath", featuring 4 Davids and 4 Goliaths in a one night tournament. Meyrowitz says that the tournament format will continue through 1996 and that we have some amazing athletes lined up and ready to bring in. The owner finally thanks all of the fans for their hardcore support.

Severn is wearing the 4 oz. fingerless gloves again, Ruas has bare fists. The crowd is electric for this fight. Nothing happens for a solid minute as both men stay away from each other. Ruas keeps his distance and counters Severn's movements but Severn is intent on fighting a counter style as well, the result is both men circling each other and the crowd grows impatient. Finally Severn shows some initiative and lunges in with a wild jab attempt that misses by a mile. Ruas circles out and BLASTS Severn with a kick to the stomach! Ruas quickly backs out of range as Severn gets angry and begins stalking him down across the Octagon. Severn backs Ruas up against the cage but backs off just as he has him cornered. Ruas plants his feet and readies himself for a striking combo but Severn hesitates to engage. Ruas unleashes a HIGH ROUNDHOUSE KICK! Severn ducks under the kick and shoots in for the takedown. Ruas spins around on the missed kick and pulls guard on Severn as he takes him down.

    Severn grounds Ruas up against the fence and systematically destroys him with strikes, carefully picking his shots as he controls Ruas and avoids his submission attempts. Ruas begins bleeding from a cut under his right eye. Severn sees the blood and unloads with a ferocious flurry of punches! Ruas clings onto Severn and ties him up in his guard. Severn punches Ruas' body over and over again until Big John steps in to stand the men up. Ruas has blood running from his cut under his eye down to his chest. Big John brings in the doctor to check the cut. Ruas tells the doctor he can still go and the doctor allows it. The crowd swells with cheers as Big John restarts the fight!

    Both men show signs of fatigue as they cautiously come out towards each other and begin circling. Ruas feints a punch and connects with a HARD leg kick to Severn's right thigh! Severn winces and backs out of range limping on the leg! Ruas smells blood and quickly closes in on him! Ruas unleashes a leg kick from hell but Severn shoots in for a takedown as soon as he throws it! Severn takes Ruas down and lands in his full guard! The crowd begins swelling with cheers as Severn picks his shots and dominates Ruas on the ground with strikes. Ruas toughs it out and manages to pull Severn down into his guard to tie him up. Ruas works his legs up high on Severn's back to go for a submission but he fails to hook anything due to the sweat and blood. Severn avoids Ruas' submissions and controls him on the ground for the duration of the fight. The clock expires and Severn gets up and celebrates with his trademark intensity, further getting the crowd fired up. Ruas' cornermen swarm him and work his cut as the doctors check on him.

    The three judges reveal their decision and all three rule the fight unanimously for Dan Severn! NEW UFC UNDISPUTED WORLD CHAMPION.... THE BEAST!


    Dan Severn has finally captured the UFC title. The show closes with The Beast celebrating the win, hoisting up the UFC and NWA titles and posing for pictures with his cornermen... .

    Love that Kimo is getting into serious business, love that Severn unanimously crushed the homo Brazilian, and actually kinda love that Tank got upset... give this a real "anything can happen" feel (especially in conjuction with Shamrock signing with WCW).

    Also, you got me finally checking out real UFC results... and WHAT DA HAYLL!?!? Kimo actually took Shamrock on in a title match!? Now my marking is outta control!

    I'm loving your markage for Kimo. That fight with Shamrock was fun. I am actually taking all feedback into consideration as far as what fighters I push. I am going to strike while the kettle is hot with Kimo and give him a title shot against Severn at UFC 8. Will he win? Man, I don't know. He's got a chance, it could happen. Anything can happen here. My original hope was to do Kimo vs Tank for the Superfight of UFC 8 and to give Severn the show off to build up his next challenger. Tank let me down big time. Back to the drawing board with him. I can't stress enough how much fun I'm having with this thread right now. My ECW fed just got to the point where it was like work, it got to the point where I was overanalyzing every segment and somewhere in there the fun was lost for me. I may go back to it in a much more trimmed down format in the future, as it is right now I'm fully committed to this fed as it is a blast to write. When I write these shows it feels like I'm just writing a review of what I see in my head, the words just flow onto the screen.

    The dice roll for Severn vs Ruas was an interesting one because their stats cancelled each other out. It was a 1 die roll and Severn came out on top 3-1.

    Old school UFC was the shit. It was a lot different than MMA today. It is a very romatic period to me because this was the era I grew up with. Nothing grinds my gears more than hearing some big wig modern day MMA journalist or even Dana White himself shit on the old school stuff. Let Dana White tell the story and he'll tell you that they started the UFC in 2001, FUCK that. Ain't nothing like the old school. The original owners of the UFC sacrificed far more and had much more of an uphill struggle than Zuffa ever had. Zuffa basically came in after all the hard work was done and just took credit for a lot of it.

    I chalked that up to Tank just getting gassed and needing better lungs.

    Just read up on Kimo on his Wikipedia page... and HOLY FUCK! He took Severn to a draw, and beat Bam Bam Bigelow!?!?! PLEASE, PLEASE do that crossover dream match if Kimo takes the title off Severn! And it looks like he beat Tank down the line too anyway? Plus, Kimo's full tats are off the hook. Love those Hawaiian islands across his abs. Such a bad ass. Makes having no Shamrock easy.

    EDIT: Do you have any other links to vids like the one you posted in the Fed Thread to hype this? I love those 5-minute or less little glimpses into the real thing. I feel like I've been missing out on so much.

    Man, Kimo really was a boss there for a very short period of time. He lost his first fight to Royce Gracie but at the time of the fight Royce was like Ronda Rousey with a dick and some balls, Kimo was the first guy to make him look like a mortal human being and even though he lost he was instantly made into a main eventer. It was crazy.

    He also has a tattoo of Wolverine from X-Men on his leg. I thought about doing Kimo vs Bam Bam in the first round of UFC 7 but I figured it would be pushing things a little too far.

    That clip was from the documentary "Fighting for a Generation", it is a phenomenal documentary that I can't recommend enough. UFC was the ultimate outlaw promotion. If you liked The Rise and Fall of ECW, you will love Fighting for a Generation. Another companion to this would be Emperor's thread in the MMA forum where he reviews all of these shows with some fantastic reviews and commentary from other posters: http://forums.prowrestling.com/showthread.php?t=122171

    Something else special about the old UFC's that I've only recently truly realized was that there was this whole other world of context on the pro wrestling side of things, all of this basically evolved out of pro wrestling. It's fucking crazy.

    I do think it would do a lot for UFC if, in a time where most combat sports champions (WWF, WCW, probably boxing?) are just these WASPy white motherfuckers, UFC's Champ is just this big, tatted-up Samoan motherfucker. It would expand their brand appeal and stuff.

    Also, I've been thinking about Shamrock in WCW, and I don't know how well he fits. Like, Shamrock with the Horsemen, fine. But I don't know if Shamrock works as a Hogan opponent, even WCW Hogan, who's slightly more of a wrestler. Hogan needs a mountain to move, a dragon to slay. Shamrock would be better served, I think, feuding with the Horsemen. "You guys party and drink all night and you think you're still the best, but I'm the best fighter in the world, and I'm taking this seriously." "WOOOOO! I'm the Naitcha Boy! You take things so serious, your heart's gonna explode, but you'll never be better on your best day than I am on my worst, because this is the symbol of excellence!" It would just fit Shamrock's style better, rather than taking a Big Boot and an a Creative Control leg drop.

    That said, if Shamrock does a shoot on Hogan and wins the WCW title when he isn't supposed to, that would be amazing.

    I was thinking about this, and at first I too disliked Shamrock in WCW... but then, after reading some of Shin's posts and thinking on this further, I really REALLY like the idea of Shamrock (especially THIS version, who's arguably bigger than the real one) being in WCW vs. WWF, as it creates a HUGE "What If?" as mentioned in someone else's post above... does Tyson have the same drawing power still to give the WWF a ratings bump later on? It creates this whole massive universe beyond just the UFC galaxy presented here. It adds a sophisticated layer of complexity to this project, IMO.

    I'm going to leave a lot to the imagination as far as how these changes effect pro wrestling. Feel free to speculate, I'll join in. I do think Shamrock would have been a better Horsemen than Mongo though. Shamrock, Arn, Flair, and Pillman, that's a pretty good unit. Pillman goes rogue and they replace him with Benoit. Benoit/Shamrock tag team, Benoit gets a rub, Money. Shamrock vs Hogan? 1 million buys!!! Shaq as special guest ref, Mr. T as time keeper.

    Even better, Hogan & Mike Tyson vs Shamrock & Flair. Tyson and Hogan together(two of the most iconic figures of the 80's), Flair and Tyson one on one in the ring, the image of Flair backing down from Tyson/face flopping is solid gold. Somebody needs to book a spin off WCW fed.

    Shamrock's WCW career I can see going something like this. First of all the whole Dungeon of Doom thing should have been blown off at Halloween Havoc 95. Then Shamrock shows up out of nowhere and backs Hogan up in a staredown with the Horsemen. Big match with Hogan vs Flair the next week with Shamrock as ref, Shamrock turns on Hogan and joins the Horsemen. He squashes some Japanese wrestler in his debut at Starrcade 95. The big Hogan vs Shamrock match goes down at Uncensored 96, Shaq as the ref, Mr. T as timekeeper, a bunch of run ins and Shamrock wins. Hogan brings in Tyson and we built up to Shamrock/Flair vs Hogan/Tyson at Slamboree, Tyson pins Flair. From there Shamrock and Benoit win the tag titles and feud with Harlem Heat and The Steiners until the NWO angle gets going. Outsiders vs Steiners vs Shamrock/Benoit triangle match at Starrcade 96. Shamrock and the Horsemen feud with the NWO in 97, Shamrock vs Scott Norton at Souled Out, Shamrock vs Scott Hall at Superbrawl, then he gets a big push in the three team match at Uncensored 97. Shamrock vs the wannabe Horsemen Jeff Jarrett, Shamrock vs Savage vs DDP triple threat in the Summer of 97, Shamrock vs Jericho, Eddie, Malenko, Luger, Hennig, and then his contract runs out in December 1997. I actually think Shamrock would have been a better fit in WCW, especially in 96-97. With Shamrock in the Horsemen it would have been perfect because it would have given them an edge in the WCW vs NWO war, plus Shamrock's weaknesses would have been hidden well with mouthpieces like Flair and Arn putting him over and cutting the bulk of his promos for him. Plus teaming with Benoit would have helped mask any deficiencies he had in the ring. Having him come in and go strait for Hogan would have given him an anti-hero babyface vibe because the fans were turning on Hogan by late 95/early 96.

    Pretty excited to see Gary Goodridge, Don Frye and Mark Coleman all coming in shortly. Frye/Severn needs to happen in a Battle of the Moustaches. I'm sure we will see Mark Schultz make an appearance and who knows, maybe you'll have him pop up a couple times instead of just the once. Lots of fun possibilities for sure... how about having The Boz or LT come in for a fight?

    Screw all that... I'm waiting for Shin to pull off what ECW failed to do, and get Kurt Angle... fresh off winning an Olympic Gold Medal with a broken FRICKIN' neck... into the Octagon.

    EDIT: I just jizzed imaging Angle coming in, dominate until Shamrock's return, and then finally getting the ankle lock vs. ankle lock dream match... just in UFC instead... before both men head off for the WWF.

    PI, the possibilities are endless. Now I want a Steve Blackman appearance. Jerry Flynn, Ray Lloyd (Glacier), etc. from WCW with legit MMA backgrounds can come in for a fight or two.

    UFC VIII: David vs Goliath
    February 16th, 1996
    Ruben Rodriguez Auditorium
    Bayamon, Puerto Rico





    What happens when Skill meets Size?...





    Bulk vs Bravado...





    Technique vs Tonnage...





    Tonight 4 Davids and 4 Goliaths will test their might in the toughest tournament in sports, and it's strictly pass/fail...





    It's time to open up the gates of The Octagon for the David vs Goliath tournament!





    Plus....










    The Beast returns to defend his title against one of the most popular and dangerous martial artists on the planet, the Hawaiian Fighting Legend... Kimo.










    This is the ultimate proving ground in reality combat... this is the Ultimate Fighting Championship... part EIGHT!!"





    Bruce Beck, Don "The Dragon" Wilson, and Jeff Blatnick open up the show sweating bullets in the sweltering Ruben Rodriguez Auditorium. A crowd of over 10,000 fans has packed into the Auditorium where the temperature has risen to a breath taking 100 degrees on this hot night in Puerto Rico. The commentators go over the rules as a computer graphic flashes across the screen. Bruce Beck does his disclaimer monologue with a very grim and serious tone, telling the television audience that what they are about to witness is for mature audiences only, saying that this is not an exhibition, what you are about to see is live combat. "This is real, this is brutal."



    The Rules of The Octagon


    • No Biting.

    • No eye gouging.

    • The first and second round of the tournament will have a 20 minute time limit, the finals and the Superfight will have a 30 minute time limit.

    • Fights are won by knockout, submission, referee stoppage, or if a fighter's corner throws in the towel. If the fight goes the time limit three judges will declare a winner.

    • Referee Big John Mccarthy has the right to stand the fight up if there is a stalemate on the ground.


    Ring announcer Michael Buffer goes through his traditional opening routine before passing the spotlight on to referee Big John McCarthy, who gets the first match started with his "LETS GET IT ON!"...






    ||||Quarterfinal Round||||






    Quarterfinal Match
    Don Frye(Wrestling) vs Sam Adkins(Freestyle)


    vs


    Frye comes out with 4 oz. fingerless gloves, giving up roughly 70 pounds to Sam Adkins the bare knuckle amateur boxer. Frye comes out bobbing and weaving, keeping his distance from the big man at first. Frye steps in with a jab and immediately drops down for a single leg takedown as Adkins reacts, sweeping his legs out from under him. Don pins Adkins up against the fence and unloads with hard punches as Adkins scrambles in a futile effort to get back up. Blood begins pouring from a cut opened up on Adkins forehead as Frye continuously hammers down on him with brutal punches. Big John steps in and calls it off after 48 SECONDS! Adkins is helped to his feet dripping blood everywhere as he kicks the cage wall out of frustration. Frye gets the crowd fired up with his intense celebration! Adkins finally calms down and shakes hands with Frye out of respect.



    Quarterfinal Match
    Keith Hackney(White Tiger Kenpo Karate) vs Paul Varelans(Freestyle)


    vs


    Hackney tries to keep his distance but he's stormed by Varelans right at the bell in a mad dash of furry. Hackney immediately trips to the ground and gets smothered by the bigger man. Varelans takes Hackney's back and starts hitting him in the back of the head with headbutts. Hackney tries to cover up but Varelans postures up and begins dropping elbows to the back of the neck until Big John steps in and frantically calls it off after just 26 seconds! Varelans reveals a massive knot on his forehead during his postmatch celebration.



    Quarterfinal Match
    Jerry Bohlander(Hybrid Wrestling) vs Scott Ferrozo(Freestyle)


    vs


    Bohlander comes out with the Lions Den training team with him, including Ken's little brother Frank Shamrock. Ferrozo outweights Bohlander by a full 130 pounds! Ferrozo locks up with Bohlander and ragdolls him at the start, flinging him around with a German Suplex! Bohlander survives and manages to cut Ferrozo over the eye with a backwards elbow. Ferrozo slams Bohlander again but Bohlander keeps a solid wrestling base and survives on the ground. Ferrozo gets tired as he goes for a choke. Bohlander defends the choke and gets back to his feet! Ferrozo bulldozes Bohlander up into the fence and holds him there. Bohlander works his arm around Ferrozo's rotund neck and goes for a guillotine but Ferrozo flings him around into the canvas. Bohlander locks Ferrozo up in the full guard and ties the big man up. Bruce Beck and Don Wilson note the evolution of the sport on commentary during the stalemate...

    Don Wilson: "I'm very impressed with these first timers here Jeff. They look like they know what they are doing. The UFC has been here two years now? And these guys are training.

    Jeff Blatnick: One hundred percent accurate there Don, this is what the future holds for martial arts, this hybrid form, this UFC form of fighting. And still allows for the freedom of individuality where you can excel with your own body type, or your own particular skills.

    Bohlander stays calm on his back with the monster on top of him. Ferrozo gasps for oxygen and struggles to do anything in the neutral position in the guard. Finally Big John stops the fight and stands them up for a restart, calling for a doctor to check on the cut over Ferrozo's eye. The doctor cleans up the cut and clears the fighter to continue. Jerry Bohlander is shown bleeding from the ear as Big John restarts the fight. Bohlander courageously fires a hard kick and a strait right hand at Ferrozo! The big man charges in and pins him up against the cage! The two men clinch up against the fence and Bohlander uses Ferrozo's own singlet straps to choke him! Both men remain deadlocked in the position for an extended period until Big John separates them and restarts the fight. Frank Shamrock leans over the wall of The Octagon and shouts instructions to Jerry Bohlander as he gasps for air. Ferrozo charges in and pins Bohlander up against the cage wall again in the same position. This time Bohlander works his arms around Ferrozo's neck and locks on a guillotine choke! Ferrozo struggles in the choke for a moment before tapping out! Bohlander wins after 9:03! Crowd goes crazy!




    Quarterfinal Match
    Paul Herrera(Wrestling) vs Gary Goodridge(Kuk Sool Wan)


    vs


    Paul Herrera runs across the cage and immediately shoots in for a double leg takedown as soon as the fight starts! Goodridge locks Herrera in a crucifix position and DESTROYS him with a flurry of elbows!


    Herrera is brutally knocked out after only 13 seconds. Goodridge pounds on his chest and screams with intensity after the stoppage. Herrera stays down and out for several minutes before finally being revived and removed from The Octagon.





    ||||Semi-Final Round||||






    Semi-Final Match
    Don Frye(Wrestling) vs Paul Varelans(Freestyle)

    UFC Undisputed World Championship
    Dan Severn(Wrestling) vs Kimo(Freestyle)





    vs



    Ring announcer Michael Buffer introduces both men and gets the audience riled up with his "LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE" intro. Big John brings Kimo and Severn to the center of The Octagon and goes over his final instructions before backing them up and getting the match started. Kimo races across The Octagon and stops short just as Severn fires away with a sloppy jab. Kimo lunges in and lands a grazing right hand on Severn's chin! Severn flinches and instinctively shoots in for a takedown! Kimo backs away and connects with right hands over and over again! Severn fights through Kimo's shots and grabs one of his legs but Kimo spins out of his grip and escapes away from him! Severn regains his composure and keeps his hands up as Kimo keeps his distance. Both men keep their distance from each other for several minutes with nothing happening. The crowd gets restless and starts booing after minutes of stalling from both men. Big John stops the fight and tells both men to engage before restarting it again. Both men resume circling around each other. Kimo keeps safe distance from Severn as he throws light jabs. Severn uses crafty footwork and manages to connect with a stiff jab that backs Kimo up. Kimo stays cautious and conservative for several minutes.

    Both men show signs of fatigue after nearly 8 minutes passes. Kimo finally gets close enough to Severn to engage but The Beast shoots on him as soon as he sets his feet for a punch. Severn bullrushes Kimo up against the fence and fights for a takedown but Kimo holds the fence to stay up! Kimo drives downward elbows into the side of Severn's head as he keeps fighting to take him down! Severn eats multiple vicious elbows to the side of the head and ear before he finally manages to put Kimo on his butt. Kimo gasps for air as he tries to get back up. Severn keeps his cool and grounds Kimo against the fence. Kimo struggles and manages to get his legs around Severn to put him in the closed guard. Severn tries to rip his hands loose and posture up to pound on Kimo but the Hawaiian Fighting Legend keeps him tied up in the guard. Kimo tries to sweep Severn over but Severn keeps his base solid to stuff it. Severn makes Kimo pay with a stiff headbutt to the ear! Kimo works his arm around Severn's arm and blocks his head to prevent any headbutts. The two men lay in the same position for an extended period as fatigue sets in. The crowd gets restless again and Big John steps in for a restart. Kimo and Severn are stood up and both men fight for air, completely exhausted as they stand across the cage from each other. Big John restarts the match and the two men circle around each other completely worn out. Kimo manages to work his way in and out of range to land light grazing jabs. Severn stays conservative and stays away for the final minute. Kimo follows Severn and corners him against the cage and lands a hard leg kick! Severn tries to tie up in a clinch but Kimo connects with a hard right hand and backs out of range! The fans begin cheering as the clock winds down. Kimo connects with another leg kick just as the clock expires! It's over. The fight goes the distance and we will get a judges ruling!





    The first judge holds up his dry eraser board and it reads..... SEVERN






    The second judge holds up his board and reveals...... KIMO

    YEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!

    EDIT: Rematch needed, for sure, though. Gotta settle this dispute conclusively.

    ...

    EDIT2: Posted the above before evening finishing the show... that's how excited I was. Anyway, love the huge Frye push realizing he beat 3 goliaths in one night. That ought to give him some pretty serious momentum. Maybe Frye vs. Severn to prove which Dan is really the man, and to determine who should get next shot at Kimo? Maybe even add a stip that the loser has to shave off his mustache? Regardless, we need a Severn/Kimo II to settle things.

    Default Re: The Ultimate Fighting Championship

    Time for some bookerman's notes. The Kimo vs Severn roll was an interesting one because Severn had a 3 dice roll and Kimo only had 2, but they both rolled 8! I did a tiebreaker roll with 1 die a piece and Kimo won it. My favorite part of this project is going into writing a show and not knowing what is going to happen. I don't roll the match until I'm ready to write it, then I'll visualize the fight and write down what I see. Writing these shows is a lot of fun for me.

    With UFC 8 it was another show that I just did not want to change. The only thing I changed was the Superfight and I replaced Joe Morreira with Keith Hackney. I also replaced the jobber that Frye knocked out in the first round with the alternate from that tournament Sam Adkins. Frye's performance in that tournament in real life was unreal. The big changes for this universe start with the next show. UFC 9 in reality took place in Detroit and the show was almost shut down by police all the way up until the start. The police forced them to change the rules to where the fighters couldn't punch with a closed fist, they threatened to arrest any fighters that did. It was a huge mess. In this alternate universe the UFC goes to Japan much sooner than they actually did. In reality they didn't go to Japan until the end of 1997. By that time they were just about broke and the show ended up being a huge flop. In this alternate universe we go to Japan in May of 1996 and we bring out the big money to sign Maeda vs Rickson Gracie, a fight I'm sure would have sold out the Tokyo Dome.

    The move to unite Rings, Shooto, UWFI, and Pancrase for a co-promoted UFC show in the Tokyo Dome is pretty unrealistic. Those four promotions all broke off from the UWF wresting promotion:



    These four promotions were rivals in the 90's. All of them competed with each other. Is it really that unrealistic to conceive that money could bring them together? They were all together at one time back in the UWF days. This move basically would have reunited the UWF in the Tokyo Dome essentially. That was basically what Pride FC was in Japan, what the UWF would have become had it not died in 1990. I've also always felt like Pride became what the UFC should have been in the late 90's/early 2000's. So that's what I'm aiming for with this move. Everything full circle.

    UWFI was on it's death bed by this time in 1996 after being exposed in the invasion angle of New Japan. I'm sure they would have jumped at the chance to send someone to a UFC tournament to try to prove their legitimacy again, especially if the price was right. Pancrase was already working with the parent company that owned the UFC, SEG, who was producing Pancrase pay per views in the USA for a short period of time and also fighters were already going back and forth and working UFC and Pancrase shows. So money talks, and after the Shamrock vs Tyson pay per view UFC had plenty of it to spend. Pulling out all the stops to put together a huge Japanese mega show probably would have been a wise investment.

    UFC IX: Battle of the Rising Sun
    Press Conference/Weigh Ins


    May 16th, 1996
    Korakuen Hall
    Tokyo, Japan


    The Ultimate Fighting Championship will make it's debut in Japan with a huge spectacular co-promoted super show in the Tokyo Dome. The show will unite the four main shoot fighting and mixed style promotions in Japan for the first time. Shooto, UWFI, Fighting Network Rings, and Pancrase all share the same roots in the UWF promotion in the 1980's.

    Shooto was launched by Satoru Sayama after the demise of the original UWF in 1985. Sayama helped develop the dojo system that bred the Shooto hybrid style of full contact martial arts. Sayama's Shooto held the first ever UFC style tournaments in Japan with the Vale Tudo Japan tournament in 1994 and 1995. Both tournaments were won by former UFC Champion Rickson Gracie's cousin Royce Gracie.

    Fighting Network Rings was launched by Akira Maeda after the demise of the UWF Reborn promotion in the early 90's. Rings scours the globe for martial artists to compete in their mixed style competition.

    UWFI was launched by Nobuhiko Takada after the demise of UWF Reborn. UWFI launched at the same time that Rings did in 1991 and featured a very similar mixed style combat. Pancrase was founded by former UWF wrestlers Masakatsu Funaki and Minoru Suzuki after they split off from the Pro Wrestling Fujiwara group in 1993. Together Shooto, UWFI, Rings, and Pancrase have developed the foundation for what the Ultimate Fighting Championship is. Each of the four promotions predates the UFC and many of the UFC's fighters have passed through one of the four leagues before they came to the UFC, including Dan Severn who competed in UWFI in 1992. UFC II vet Gerrard Gordeaux competed in Rings in 1991 as well as the original UWF in the late 80's. UFC II and VII vet Remco Pardoel passed through the Shooto dojo system and multiple Pancrase fighters have found success in The Octagon, including Funaki, Suzuki, Bas Rutten, and Ken Shamrock. Now the UFC has united the four founding promotions for a co-promoted super show in the Tokyo Dome. Each of the four promotions of Japan have sent 1 fighter into the UFC 9 tournament. Plus we will have 3 superfights!

    Dan Severn and Kimo battled back and forth in their championship fight in Puerto Rico at UFC 8. When it was over the judges declared a new champion, and his name was Kimo. The Hawaiian fighting sensation took Severn the distance and came out of Puerto Rico wearing UFC gold. Severn, his managers, and his fans all felt like they were robbed by the decision. Both fighters have agreed to the rematch and they will pick up right where they left off in Puerto Rico, only this time the score will be settled. Only 1 man can be the Undisputed World Champion of The Octagon!

    Rickson Gracie is the UFC II and III tournament champion, the only man to ever win a 16 man tournament back when he defeated 4 martial artists in 1 night at UFC II. Gracie also holds the distinction of being the only man in the world to ever defeat Ken Shamrock in the UFC, forcing him to submit in the finals of the UFC III tournament. Rickson's win over Shamrock was revenge for his knockout loss in the semi finals to Shamrock in the very first tournament at UFC 1 when Shamrock knocked him unconscious with headbutts. Shamrock and Gracie fought their third and final match in the very first ever UFC superfight for the Undisputed Championship. Shamrock defeated Rickson after a grueling fight that lasted well over an hour. In the end Rickson's family threw in the towel as their champion had been battered. Rickson Gracie finally returns to the UFC almost a full 1 year after his devastating loss to Ken Shamrock at UFC V and he will be taking on one of Japan's heroes. Akira Maeda is the Rings 1995 Mega Battle Tournament champion and one of the most popular and recognizable martial arts figures in Japan. Maeda is a Karate master with deadly kicks and is well versed in submissions due to his background training with shooters such as Karl Gotch and Yoshiaki Fujiwara.

Ruas lost a decision to Dan Severn at the Ultimate Ultimate last December for the UFC World Title. Ruas hopes to get revenge by defeated Severn's friend and training partner Don Frye en route to another shot at UFC gold. Frye will be knocking at the door of a title shot as well if he can stay undefeated with a win over Ruas.

    The Tokyo Dome
    Tokyo, Japan





    Japan... The Land of the Rising Sun.... The birthplace of modern martial arts....





    Over 100 years ago a man named Jigaro Kano revolutionized the martial arts world.











    Kano's vision of the battlefield arts went beyond just self defense, it was a way of life...





    A lifestyle of honor... discipline... and respect...





    Now, over a century later, Kano's vision of the martial arts lifestyle has produced the ultimate modern day warrior...










    Over 100 years of martial arts evolution has led to this, the ultimate proving ground in hand to hand combat...





    The Ultimate Fighting Championship...





    Tonight, Rings, Shooto, Pancrase, and UWFI all converge on the Olympics of the martial arts world, the UFC





    Three Superfights.... and.... The Battle of the Rising Sun TOURNAMENT!





    It's time to open up the gates.... OF THE OCTAGON!"



    The show opens up with a big elaborate ceremony in the cage with the four figureheads standing on the four opposite sides of The Octagon. Satoru Sayama of Shooto, Nobuhiko Takada of UWFI, Masakatsu Funaki of Pancrase, and Akira Maeda of Rings. The lights in the Tokyo Dome go out and four spotlights kick on to highlight the four figureheads in the cage A voice comes over the speakers in Japanese saying that tonight the UFC has brought together Shooto, Rings, Pancrase, and UWFI to unite and celebrate the shared lineage that goes back to the UWF, where the mixed style martial arts competition has strong roots, strikers vs grapplers, Kickboxers vs Wrestlers, Judo vs Boxing, Ali vs Inoki. The spirit of UWF lives on through Pancrase, UWFI, Shooto, and Rings, each of the four have carried the legacy on in different directions but tonight they unite under the same direction, the spirit of the UWF lives on tonight in the UFC, in The Octagon. The speech is translated in English for the pay per view broadcast as the owner of the UFC enters the cage and gives flowers to each of the four figureheads before shaking their hands and bowing. Each of the four men salute the fans and shake each other's hands to end the opening ceremony.

    Bruce Beck, Jeff Blatnick, and Don "The Dragon" Wilson take over the show at the English commentary table. The Tokyo Dome is packed with roughly 48,000 people. The commentary crew breaks the news that Dave Beneteau has withdrawn from the tournament after doctors found a broken bone in his hand at the physical exam last night. Beneteau was trying to hide the injury and fight through it but the doctors caught it and refused to clear him to compete. So we will have a late minute replacement. Dave Beneteau's training partner Mark Shultz will enter the tournament with just 24 hours notice!


    Mark Shultz will enter the tournament at 5'10" and weighing in at 210 pounds. Mark along with his brother Dave Shultz are two of the most decorated American wrestlers. Both Mark and Dave won gold medals in the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. The wrestling community was rocked just 4 months ago when Dave Shultz was tragically shot down by John duPont, the owner of the Foxcatcher wrestling team where Dave was coaching. Now after the loss of his brother just 4 months ago Mark Shultz will enter the UFC 9 tournament with just 24 hours notice as a replacement for the injured Dave Beneteau. Shultz was training with Beneteau for his preparation for tonight's event and Shultz also crossed paths with Rickson Gracie along with his brother Dave, where they learned about Brazilian Jujitsu back at BYU University in the early 90's

    The trio of commentators go over the rest of the card briefly before Bruce Beck goes over his usual disclaimer about the seriousness of what you are about to see. Bruce Beck tells the fans that this is not an exhibition, this is not scripted entertainment ladies and gentleman, this is live, this is real, this is brutal. The team goes over the rules as they flash across the screen on a computer graphic...


    The Rules of The Octagon


    • No Biting.

    • No eye gouging.

    • The first and second round of the tournament will have a 20 minute time limit, the finals and the Superfight will have a 30 minute time limit.

    • Fights are won by knockout, submission, referee stoppage, or if a fighter's corner throws in the towel. If the fight goes the time limit three judges will declare a winner.

    • Referee Big John Mccarthy has the right to stand the fight up if there is a stalemate on the ground.


    The Japanese ring announcer gets the show under way and passes it along to referee Big John Mccarthy, who gets the first fight started with his intense, "LETS GET IT ON!" opening!...

    Tank and Hans converge on each other in the center of the cage and Hans fires with a front push kick that hits Tank in the gut! Tank barrels in with haymakers but Hans circles away and covers up. Tank rushes up against Hans and pins him against the fence. Both men tie up in a clinch against the cage. Hans hits Tank with a light headbutt but Tank digs in with sickening body shots.

Tank stands over Hans' unconscious body and flips him off as he lays lifelessly on the canvas. Hans cornermen swarm the cage and a scuffle breaks out as they try to back Tank away from Nijman!

    Mark Hall(Moo Yae Do) vs Yuki Nakai(Judo)


    vs


    Mark Hall rushes across the cage and immediately shoots in to tie up with Yuki Nakai in a mad dash! Nakai tries to throw Hall during the scramble but Hall manages to lift him up off of his feet and slam him hard on his back! Nakai immediately locks Hall into a closed guard with overhooks tying up both of his arms. Hall struggles and fights to break out of Nakai's guard but he's stuck. The two men lay deadlocked in the same position for a while. Hall hits Nakai with occasional headbutts but Nakai holds on and keeps him tied up in the guard. Hall digs his chin into Nakai's eye until referee Big John McCarthy warns him for eye gouging. Nakai works his legs into a Butterfly Guard position and suddenly sweeps Mark Hall over to his back out of nowhere with a quick burst! Hall scrambles around like a fish out of water, rolling over and giving up his back! Nakai stays clung to Hall's back as Hall turns back over to face him. Nakai slowly works his legs up high and slips one of them around Hall's shoulder in the full mount. Nakai begins locking his legs around Hall's neck and shoulder from the top mount position. Mark Hall gradually goes limp and stops moving. Nakai motions to the referee that Hall is unconscious. Big John reaches in and checks Hall's arm then immediately stops the fight! It's over!
