    Default The Ultimate Fighting Championship


    This is a revision history project, starting with UFC 1 in November of 1993. I'm going to re-book the UFC as I see fit. The challenge with booking an MMA promotion is that you have no control over the outcomes of the matches. I wanted to incorporate this challenge by using a dice roll system to determine the winners of the fights(Random.org's dice roll). Each fighter will be assigned a number of dice based on their strengths or weaknesses depending on the matchup.


    • Die 1: The "Punchers Chance" die. Every fighter always at least has a punchers chance in every fight, so most fighters will get at least 1 guaranteed die roll for each fight. There are special cases however. In some cases, a fighter will lose his punchers chance die if his striking background is grossly limited and he's up against another fighter with an extensive striking background. Royce Gracie vs Mike Tyson for example. Gracie would lose his punchers chance die in this particular matchup.

    • Die 2: The next 3 die will represent the 3 different phases of combat, the free movement(stand-up) phase, the clinch phase, and the ground phase. This particular die will be for the free movement phase of combat. If a fighter has an advantage over his opponent in the free movement phase of combat, he will be awarded this die. This will be a matter of opinion as to which fighter has the advantage, and this opinion will be based on a fighter's background.

    • Die 3: This die will represent the clinch phase of combat. If a fighter has an advantage over his opponent in the clinch, he will be awarded this die for the fight.

    • Die 4: This die will represent the ground phase of combat. If a fighter has an advantage over his opponent on the ground, he will be awarded this die for the fight.

    • Example: Royce Gracie vs Mike Tyson. In my educated opinion, the chances of Gracie knocking Tyson out on a fluke punch are virtually non-existent, so he would lose his "punchers chance" die. Gracie would get the ground and clinch die, but Tyson would get the free movement die(along with his punchers chance die). So the roll would be 2 vs 2. Whoever comes out of that roll with the higher score will be the winner. I'll factor in the score and come up with the time and finish on my own based on the margin of victory in the numbers. This process will evolve through the course of the project and I'm open to any suggestions to make it better, so feel free to chime in if you have any better ideas. There are some fights that I don't want to touch. Those fights will go down just as they did in reality without any dice rolling.



    Disclaimer: This will be a fairly strait forward format. Unfortunately I will not be writing out the full fights. If you want fully written matchups you will have to go read my ECW fed. This will be just results, with a press conference before each show hyping up the field of competitors.

    Some things will change. Some dream guys will be brought in and some reality will be bent slightly here and there. A lot of the injuries or political problems that stopped certain fights or fighters through history will disappear for the sake of interest. If you are curious about the way things really went down, you can check out my History of MMA project in Fight Club, there is a link in my sig.

    UFC I Press Conference

    November 11th, 1993
    Denver Colorado YMCA

    SEG Sports will proudly present the inaugural Ultimate Fighting Championship event tomorrow night from the Mcnichols Sports Arena in Denver Colorado. We will hold a 1 night single elimination tournament with 8 of the most dangerous martial artists from around the world. Eight high level fighters skilled in everything from Tae Kwon Do to Wrestling to Boxing will battle it out until only 1 man remains. That one man will win a $50,000 prize and the title of The Ultimate Fighting Champion.

    This tournament will be held under rules that are designed to resemble street combat as much as possible. Biting and eye gauging is illegal, but everything else goes. The fights will be held in an octagon shaped cage with a referee presiding over the action. Fights can be won by submission, knockout, or his corner throwing in the towel. The tournament will not have any time limits or rounds, and will be open to fighters of all weight classes.

    Ladies and gentleman, introducing the fighters...

    Introducing first...





    Branko Cikatić(6'1", 220)
    Croatia, Yuguslavia
    Kickboxing

    Branko is a seasoned kickboxer that won the K-1 Grand Prix earlier this year in Japan by defeating all 3 of his opponents via KO, including Ernesto Hoost in the finals.


    Branko's first round opponent is set to be...






    Hidehiko Yoshida(5'11", 225)
    Japan
    Judo

    Yoshida is the Gold Medalist in Judo from the 1992 Olympic Games and will represent his nations' martial art against Branko Cikitic in the opening round of tomorrow night's tournament.


    Our second quarterfinal fight will feature:






    Aleksandr Karelin(6'4", 286)
    Russia
    Greco-Roman Wrestling

    Karelin is a heavy favorite in the tournament due to his immense size, intensity, and his two Gold Medals from the 1988 and 1992 Summer Games.


    Karelin's first round opponent will be...






    Gerard Gordeau(6'5", 216)
    Amsterdam, Netherlands
    Karate

    Gordeau is a grizzled veteran of the rough and ready European Full Contact Karate circuit, and is the 1991 Savate World Champion.


    Our third opening round matchup will feature...






    Pat Smith(6'2", 225)
    USA
    Kickboxing

    Pat Smith is currently ranked #1 in the United States as a heavyweight kickboxer and #5 internationally.


    Smith squares off against...






    Ken Shamrock(6', 230)

    Our final, and marquee matchup of the opening round of the tournament, ladies and gentleman....






    Shannon Briggs(6'4", 260)
    USA
    Boxing

    Shannon is an undefeated Teddy Atlas trained heavyweight boxer that is on a fast track to the top of the sport. Briggs is currently 15-0 as a boxer and was a former Golden Gloves and Silver Medal winner as an amateur. Shannon was penned as the odds on favorite to win the tournament by both the USA Today and the NY Times, citing that Boxing is the world's premier martial art and nobody else stands a chance.


    Briggs will square off in the first round against....






    Rickson Gracie(5'10", 185)
    Brazil
    Brazilian Ju-Jitsu

    Rickson Gracie is the crown jewel of the Gracie family, a family that modified traditional Japanese Jiu Jitsu into their own tailor made martial art that has yet to be proven on the large scale. Gracie claims to be undefeated in over 400 no rules fights, but as the smallest man in this field of competitors, he's going to be in for an uphill struggle if he wants to be the Ultimate Fighter.


    These are your 8 martial artists. Tomorrow night, they will fight it out until only 1 man is left standing as the Ultimate Fighting Champion!

    UFC I
    November 12th, 1993
    Mcnichols Arena
    Denver Colorado


    Legendary Tae Kwon Do master Bill "Superfoot" Wallace opens up the show on commentary as the cameras roll for our very first ever Ultimate Fighting Championship. Nearly 3,000 fans are packed into the smoky McNichols Arena in Denver Colorado for tonight's program. Brian Kilmeade, Kathy Long, and NFL Hall of Fame tough guy Jim Brown are here with us on commentary. Everything is awkward and everybody has funny hair and weird clothes because it's 1993!

    Nobody knows what to expect here. The best martial arts in the public mainstream eye are generally perceived to be striking arts like Karate and Tae Kwon Do, you know, the stuff you see in the movies. Nobody even knows if this is really going to be real. Is this a pro wrestling show? Is this a karate match? What's the deal?



    Quarterfinal Round



    vs

    Quarterfinal Round: Gerrard Gordeau vs Aleksandr Karelin

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Everybody finds out really quick what the show is all about when Karelin charges in with intensity and ties up with Gordeau right at the opening bell. Karelin was able to get the takedown rather easily, but he seemed a bit lost once he got it. The two men scrambled around briefly before Karelin folded Gordeau up with some pretty gruesome "Karelin Lift" slams. The massive Russian took Gordeau's back and drove some downward elbows into the spine/neck region to force the submission(as the towel flew into the ring) at 1:46.


    vs

    Quarterfinal Match: Branko Cikitic vs Hidehiko Yoshida

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Both men opened the fight cautiously. Cikitic caught Yoshida with a low kick early on, but Yoshida forced a tieup and tossed him end over end with a textbook Judo throw. Cikitic was completely lost on the ground, panicking around frantically as Yoshida smothered him with his gi and forced a choke submission with his sleeve at the 2 minute mark.


    vs

    Quarterfinal Match: Ken Shamrock vs Pat Smith

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Smith gets the hometown cheers that turn Shamrock into the instant heel of the tourny, and he really kind of lives up to it with his performance. Shamrock lured the striker to the clinch and took the fight to the ground. Smith was quickly caught in an impressive Heel Hook submission at just 1:49. Shamrock got some pretty good heat from the fans after the fight due to his attitude.



    vs

    Quarterfinal Match: Shannon Briggs vs Rickson Gracie

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    This was the first round fight that had the fans and the ringside press buzzing. Shannon came out dancing around Rickson throwing jabs. As soon as Briggs set his feet and unleashed his strait right hand, Rickson shot in and tied up. Briggs struggle to break free, but Rickson tripped him to the ground and forced the rear naked choke submission within the 2 minute mark. Briggs' boxing gloves rendered him pretty much helpless on the ground.

    The quarterfinal round breezed by with a fast and furious pace. The Karelin fight was very brutal, but the other 3 quarterfinal bouts all ended in clean submissions. It's interesting to note that all 4 of the strikers in the tournament were defeated quickly and rather easily by the grapplers in the tournament.



    Semi-Final Round



    vs

    Semi-Final Match: Alexandre Karelin vs Hidehiko Yoshida

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter


    This was a historic fight between two Olympic Gold Medalist grapplers, both representing completely different styles. The two men cautiously tied up early in the fight with Yoshida attempting a throw, but Karelin powered him into the fence and to the ground. Yoshida was able to amazingly scramble free and catch Karelin in a choke with the sleeve of his Gi, but Karelin powered his way out of the choke and returned to his feet. The two men tied up in another clinch, this time with Yoshida flipping Karelin over into the mat face first with a Judo throw. Karelin was able to fight his way to the top position on the ground and completely devastate Yoshida with headbutts, opening up a cut and closing his right eye with swelling. The bleeding was really bad. Karelin worked Yoshida up against the fence and drove his head down into his chin with all of his weight, forcing Yoshida to tapout after 5 of the most intense minutes of combat I've ever seen. Both men hugged and shook hands after the fight. Yoshida received a pretty good ovation from the fans for what he was able to do against one of the most powerful, intimidating athletes in the world.

    vs

    Semi-Final Match: Rickson Gracie vs Ken Shamrock

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Gracie came out for the opening fight and this fight with a train of family members in front of and behind him. His father Helio Gracie accompanied them to the cage along with several of his brothers and cousins. Rickson wears a gi to the ring, but he fights without the top portion of it for some reason.

    The two men tied up pretty quickly and took it strait to the ground. Ken Shamrock attempted to fall backwards into the same heel hook that he won the first fight with, but Rickson followed him up and took a top position. Shamrock scrambled and got hooked in a rear naked choke, but somehow he managed to slip out of it. I think this is where the gi top could have helped Rickson because this choke was very deep at one point and the fight looked to be over. Shamrock was able to break one of Rickson's arms loose and slip out of the choke possibly due to the sweat.

    From there this fight remained on the ground in a very strategic, cautious fight that really bored the fans to tears. Shamrock postured up at times to land light strikes, but every time he did he would nearly get swept over or caught in a submission. Both men fought like this for nearly 47 minutes. The Gracie family frantically scrambled around the cage during the fight, shouting instructions to Rickson. Shamrock was able to land a really hard headbutt that knocked Rickson for a loop at the 50 minute mark. Shamrock followed it up with several more headbutts before the referee finally realized that Rickson was out cold. The Gracie family stormed the cage and had some heated words with Shamrock and his corner after the fight. Very dramatic scene. Shamrock moves into the finals with what a lot of journalists and insiders are considering a pretty big upset.


    Tournament Finals


    vs

    Tournament Finals: Ken Shamrock vs Alexandre Karelin

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    After a really long intermission that seen Relio Gracie presented with a Martial Arts Lifetime Achievement Award, we finally got a really fantastic final match that brought the fans back to life. Shamrock was slammed early on with Karelin's trademark "Karelin Lift". Shamrock was completely overwhelmed and overpowered for the first 3 minutes of the fight. Karelin wore himself out by wailing away with sloppy punches from the top. Shamrock was holding him off until Karelin landed a ruthless headbutt that bounced Shamrock's head off of the canvas and nearly knocked him unconscious. Shamrock set the crowd off when he transitioned down low and caught Karelin in a heel hook from his back, forcing the submission at just 5:23.

    Shamrock closes the show celebrating with his massive cardboard check for $50,000 as Karelin limps out of the cage on the shoulders of his trainers. Ken Shamrock is the Ultimate Fighting Champion.

    Bookerman's notes:

    I was hoping to push Rickson as my man for the first couple of tournaments similar to how Royce did it in reality, but Shamrock scored the upset on the roll(even though Rickson had more dice) and completely changes everything. Rickson was going to be my superstar, and now he may be finished. It really isn't that far of a stretch to believe that Shamrock could have beaten Rickson here. Royce choked Shamrock out in the real UFC 1, but he was wearing a gi, and Rickson never really proved himself the way Royce did, so we really don't know how he would have done against a top level guy like Shamrock.

    The one fight I didn't change was Ken's debut against Pat Smith. That was one of the most brutal submissions in UFC history and the perfect debut for Shamrock.

    I wish I could think of some type of betting system to go along with my Dungeons and Dragons setup. I got nothing. I am open to ideas though.

    I'll be expanding my dice roll finish system to be closer to that of a pen and paper roll playing game combat system. I don't know if it gets any nerdier than that.

    ++++Preliminary Round++++




    vs

    Preliminary Round Match: Don "The Dragon" Wilson(Kickboxing) vs Ray Stevens(Judo)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    The opening matchup was a thrilling fight between two very evenly matched up guys. Don Wilson chose to wear Boxing gloves for the fight. This was a back and forth battle with Wilson coming out and landing some nice kicks and punching combos before the British Judoka tied up with him and managed to take him down to the mat. Stevens aggressively went for a choke with the sleeve of his gi until Wilson managed to use the cage to get back up to his feet. Steven clinched up with Wilson and rolled him backwards into a Judo throw that kicked Wilson end over end into the mat. The two scrambled to their feet where Wilson landed some pretty brutal punches and a really hard leg kick that almost buckled Stevens. Wilson threw another leg kick that caused Stevens to back up out of range, but he charged right into a Spinning Back Fist that Wilson traditionally throws in his kickboxing matches whenever he misses a low kick. Ray Stevens was hit right on the button and knocked out cold at 3:23.


    vs

    Preliminary Round Match: Minoru Suzuki(Hybrid Wrestling) vs Jorge Paez(Boxing)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Paez, a boxer, chose not to wear boxing gloves for this fight. Suzuki shot in for a takedown immediately as Paez set his feet for a right hand. Paez managed to avoid the takedown and pivot Suzuki around into the fence for some really fast punches that opened up a cut on his forehead. Suzuki frantically tied up with the smaller man and managed to take him down. Paez rolled over and exposed his back and was promptly caught in Rear Naked Choke. Suzuki wins via submission after just 1:45, but he suffered a pretty bad cut in the process.


    vs

    Preliminary Round Match: Rickson Gracie(Brazilian Ju Jitsu) vs Jean Theriault(Kickboxing)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Rickson Gracie came out very focused and determined with the rest of his family with him. Theriault came out cautiously throwing jabs(wearing boxing gloves) and keeping his distance from the grappler at first. As soon as he unloaded with a vicious low kick Rickson shot in and tied up in a clinch. Theriault defended the takedown at first, but Rickson quickly transitioned around to his back and tripped him down to the canvas where he sunk in a Rear Naked Choke. In a pretty dramatic, scary scene, Theriault was choked unconscious before he even had the chance to tapout. Theriault remained unconscious for what seemed like an eternity after the fight as paramedics eventually just carted him out of the cage on a stretcher.


    vs

    Preliminary Round Match: Masakatsu Funaki(Hybrid Wrestling) vs Kim Kyoung(Tae Kwon Do)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Kyoung was caught like a deer in the headlights here and just looked really out of place against Funaki. Funaki was cautious until Kyoung threw a spinning crescent kick. Funaki shot in very low and took him down to the ground, where he promptly ended the fight with a Keylock(Hammerlock) after just 1 minute.
    vs

    Preliminary Round Match: Bas Rutten(Hybrid Fighting) vs Remco Pardoel(Jiu Jitsu)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Bas Rutten picked Remco Pardoel off with some pretty vicious leg kicks for the opening minutes. Pardoel was able to get a takedown against the fence, but Rutten was able to survive his onslaught and use the fence to pull himself up. Pardoel tried to trip Rutten to the mat again, but Rutten pivoted out of the corner and landed a series of vicious knees from the Thai clinch. Rutten broke the clinch and finished Pardoel off with punches as he stumbled to the mat, winning via towel thrown in after 3:56.
    vs

    Preliminary Round Match: Volk Han(Sambo) vs Ramon Dekkers(Muay Thai)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Both men collided in the center of the Octagon as soon as the bell rang. Han ate a jab-cross combo to the face as he tied up with Dekkers and tried to score the takedown. Dekkers managed to keep the fight in the clinch and land a hard knee to the body before locking on the Thai clinch. Han forced Dekkers back towards the cage and forced the fight to the ground. Dekkers was like a fish out of water and was caught with a Kimura lock that was impossible to defend with the boxing gloves he was wearing. Han wins via submission after just :45 seconds.
    vs

    Preliminary Round Match: Hidehiko Yoshida(Judo) vs Jason Delucia(Kung Fu)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Delucia came out throwing a fancy Kung Fu axe kick type of maneuver. Yoshida closed the distance on him and tossed him end over end with a classic Ushiro Guruma Judo throw. Delucia was flipped all the way over and landed awkwardly on his right leg, causing a grizzly fracture of both bones. The towel was immediately thrown in after just :16 seconds. Delucia suffers a pretty nasty broken leg.
    vs

    Preliminary Round Match: Sam Greco(Karate) vs Pat Smith(Kickboxing)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    This was a brutal 9 minute slug fest with both guys taking a ridiculous amount of damage. Greco put together some nice kickboxing combinations, but Pat Smith seemed to do more damage, especially when the fight went to the ground. Smith finished Greco off in a brutal, bloody, violent fight with a series of elbows on the ground. Greco's corner threw in the towel at the 9:03 mark. Best fight of the night.




    ++++Quarterfinal Round++++





    vs

    Quarterfinal Round Match: Don "The Dragon" Wilson(Kickboxing) vs Minoru Suzuki(Hybrid Wrestling)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Don Wilson came out without the boxing gloves that he wore in the opening round and was able to use some really crafty footwork to set up some leg kicks and boxing combos that opened up Suzuki's doctored cut. Suzuki bled like a stuck pig as Don blasted him with strikes from around the outer edges of the cage. Suzuke finally caught up with Wilson against the cage as the aging Wilson grew tired. Suzuki scored a slam takedown and followed it up with some pretty hard punches before catching Wilson with a Guillotine Choke during the scramble. Suzuki advances with a submission over the favorite of the tournament after just 4 minutes.

    vs

    Quarterfinal Round Match: Rickson Gracie(Brazilian Ju Jitsu) vs Masakatsu Funaki(Hybrid Wrestling)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    This was the most technical matchup of the evening, with Rickson going after Funaki with non stop submissions. Funaki displayed some good heart and technique with some of his escapes, but he eventually got caught with Rickson's Rear Naked Choke at 12:49. Funaki tapped out, but Rickson refused to release the choke until Funaki was unconscious.

    vs

    Quarterfinal Round Match: Bas Rutten(Hybrid Wrestling) vs Volk Han(Sambo)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Han came out very aggressive with the takedown attempts, swarming Rutten at the bell. Rutten managed to defend the takedowns and land some brutal palm strikes to the face. Han was knocked to the ground. Rutten pounced on him for the finish, but Han quickly recovered and locked on a heel hook from his back, forcing the submission after just 2 minutes.

    vs

    Quarterfinal Round Match: Hidehiko Yoshida(Judo) vs Pat Smith(Kickboxing)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Pat Smith was swarmed and completely overwhelmed by Yoshida. Yoshida forced a clinch and ate a few knees to the body before tossing Smith over into the mat with a Judo throw. Smith recovered and landed some more knees to the body as Yoshida kept the distance close. Yoshida ate multiple uppercuts in the clinch as Pat Smith used his gi against him. The two stalled up against the cage as fatigue set in. Yoshida set the crowd off when he just exploded out of nowhere with a beautiful Hane Goshi Judo throw. Yoshido quickly pounced on Smith and caught him with a lapel choke for the submission victory at 7:45.



    ++++Semi-Final Round++++




    vs

    Semi-Final Round Match: Minoru Suzuki(Hybrid Wrestling) vs Rickson Gracie(Brazilian Ju Jitsu)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Suzuki and Rickson cautiously circled each other for several minutes. The crowd grew very restless as both guys pawed out at each other and circled the cage. Suzuki finally initiated the action and paid the price by getting tied up in a clinch and tripped over to the mat. Suzuki scrambled on the mat and was caught in a fully extended arm bar, but somehow he miraculously managed to escape. Suzuki's cut eventually began bleeding profusely again as he laid in Rickson's guard with his head down in a conservative stalemate. Suzuki throws very cautious punches to the body, but Rickson very slowly, very patiently works his arms up around his neck into an Arm Triangle Choke. Suzuki fights to break free of the hold, but Rickson slowly tightens his grip like a python with his prey. Minoru Suzuki refuses to tap out and is choked unconscious with an Arm Triangle Choke from the guard at 17:31. Blood everywhere.

    vs

    Semi-Final Round Match: Hidehiko Yoshida(Judo) vs Volk Han(Sambo)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Han charges his opponent at the bell again, with both men colliding in the center of the ring in a violent clinch. The two men spin each other around in the clinch as Yoshida goes for Judo throws, but Han has no part of them, defending them by dropping his weight and forcing Yoshida down into the fence with a violent collision. Han cautiously keeps in tight and works for superior position. Yoshida works his way into the guard position from his back, but Han quickly seizes a leg and drops back for an Achilles Lock. Yoshida rolls up on top of Han and rains down bare fisted punches! Han scrambes out and works his way to all fours. Yoshida works to keep Han down from side control and sneaks in a lapel choke! Volk had violently thrashes around in an attempt to escape the hold, but he's forced to tapout after 3 minutes of thrilling action. Checkmate.


    ++++Intermission++++



    The announcers plug our next event, UFC 3: The American Dream, to be held in North Carolina in September of this year(1994). One of the announcers is shown with the defending Ultimate Fighting Champion Ken Shamrock at ringside for a special interview. Shamrock gives props and respect to the fighters and says that he's been impressed with what he's seen.

    Shamrock officially announces that he will be entering the UFC 3 tournament in September to defend his title as the Ultimate Fighting Champion!





    ++++Tournament Finals++++



    vs

    Tournament Final Match: Rickson Gracie(Brazilian Ju Jitsu) vs Hidehiko Yoshida(Judo)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    The two men that fell one fight short of the finals in UFC 1 both ran roughshod through this field of competitors in order to restore their legacies and obtain the title that eluded them this past November. Gracie and Yoshida very cautiously circled each other here for a solid 2 minutes. Gracie threw hard jab kicks to the knee, but Yoshida would land the occasional jab or cross through Gracie's defense. The two men finally tied up in the clinch and Gracie landed some pretty good knees to the body before trying for a trip takedown. Yoshida transitioned during the fall and landed on top of Rickson in his half guard. The Olympic Gold Medalist from the 1992 games was able to land some pretty effective punches from the position, but Rickson managed to transition into a full guard, where he constantly shifted around and kept Yoshida totally off balance. Yoshida smothered Rickson with his gi on and off as the two men played a cat and mouse game with submissions. Rickson came very close at sinking in the same Arm Triangle Choke that he used in the previous fight, but Yoshida also came close with an Arm Triangle of his own at times.

    Yoshida gradually worked Rickson up against the fence and started landing more punches. Rickson tried to use a hip heist sweep to roll Yoshida to his back, but Yoshida used the cage wall to prevent it. Rickson broke his guard and kicked out to his feet, transitioning around to take Yoshida's back as the two men stood up in the clinch. Gracie jumped up onto Yoshida's back and wrapped his legs around is waist with a body triangle as he fought for a Rear Naked Choke. Yoshida stayed on his feet with Rickson on his back, fighting off the choke as he leaned up against the fence. Rickson finally snuck an arm through Yoshida's defense and very slowly and patiently worked his way into a Rear Naked Choke. Yoshida's face turned colors as he clutched the fence to stay on his feet. Rickson squeezed the life out of him and forced him to fall backwards, slamming Rickson into the canvas as he lost consciousness. Rickson Gracie wins with another Rear Naked Choke after 11:31.

    The Gracie family storms the Octagon and sweeps Rickson up into the air for a dramatic celebration. Rickson Gracie has made history. The crown jewel of the family has restored the honor to their name by choking 4 men unconscious in one evening to become the Ultimate Fighting Champion! Ken Shamrock is shown looking up into the cage with an intense look in his eyes as Rickson and the Gracie family is presented the huge cardboard check for $100,000.

    Huh. So it's Rickson who brings Brazillian Jiu Jitsu to the world in this universe, not Royce. Which is funny, 'cause I was just playing UFC Undisputed 3 last night, Gracie vs. GSP, and Rogan brought up that Royce was picked specifically over his brother Rickson for...some reason.

    So, will we see any other historical changes?

    Spoiler
    Royce was originally chosen over Rickson because he was smaller and less intimidating and they wanted to emphasize how Ju Jitsu was designed to help those types in real fighting as much as possible. That, and I think it's always been an unspoken thing in the family that Royce was really the best out of all of them. Rickson was more athletic and aggressive, where as Royce frail and skinny and was more cautious and defensive. The Gracie's originally spelled Jiu Jitsu without the I just in case anyone is wondering why I keep spelling it differently. That's not a type-o. The original Japanese Jiu Jitsu was spelled with the I and I think it's become the common way to spell it. I like Ju Jitsu better.

    And yes, we will examine the possibilities and what if's of a Kurt Angle MMA career. We will also see 5 total Gracie's in the UFC by the time it's all said and done. I'm probably not going to bother with Pride though. I'll have to find a way to work those guys into the UFC roster through those years. I have to say, going into writing a show without having a clue of the outcomes of the matches you are going to write makes for a pretty interesting fan fic experience. I modified my dice system with a deeper attribute system like this:

    Stand Up
    Footwork
    Head Movement
    Defense
    Striking

    Ground
    Submissions
    Control
    Defense
    Striking

    Clinch
    Takedowns
    Takedown defense
    Striking
    Control

    Physical
    Stamina
    Speed
    Strength
    Chin

    Each fighter will be rated from 1-10 in each of those categories with a total score determining who wins the die. Even if a fighter loses out on all die he will at least get 1 punchers chance die. I feel like this is a pretty accurate way to translate the unpredictable nature of the events and the challenge associated with booking them. A 4 die guy is more likely to beat a 1 die guy, but there's always that chance that something can go wrong. This is all inspired by my love of Pen and Paper roll playing games(Dungeons and Dragons, Shadowrun, Star Wars) back in the day.

    This is actually so much more entertaining and intriguing than I ever would've imagined. Easily one of the most unique concepts to ever grace Fan Fiction. Like seriously... Top 10, IMO... if not Top 5 or Top 3.

    I'm curios to see how you handle there being two Ultimate Fighting Champions now. What if, by the dice, they don't clash in the next tournament to decide an undisputed Ultimate Fighting Champion? What if you end up with a third "interim" champ? Oh my god... it just hit me... a real life triple threat fight would be so cool!



    This thread is definitely a must-read for me, and I've never even been that into UFC. Although I must admit... after reading the latest show, I did end up spending part of tonight researching on Wikipedia the Rear Naked Choke, the Gracie Family, and the belt/degree ranking system of BJJ. So, you're clearly opening my mind to new stuff too. This fed is clearly winning on so many levels.

    EDIT: Just out of curiosity, I'd be interested in seeing the dice tally totals for match-ups for a numeric quantification of squashes, etc.

    Quarterfinal Round



    vs

    Quarterfinal Round: Kieth Hackney(Kenpo) vs Emmanuel Yarborough(Sumo)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Emmanuel Yarborough used his tremendous size, strength, and Sumo background to push Kieth Hackney through the door of the Octagon, breaking the deadbolt! Hackney came back into the cage in a really intense moment. The crowd was going nuts. Hackney eventually dropped Yarborough with an overhand palm strike to the face in an image that will live on in UFC lore forever...


    Hackney would finish the job with a barrage of strikes after Yarborough tumbled to the canvas. Referee John Mccarthy stepped in to stop it at 1:45.


    vs

    Quarterfinal Match: Ken Shamrock(Hybrid Wrestling) vs Christoph Leinenger(Judo)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Leinenger was out-muscled and outclassed by Shamrock, who came in absolutely shredded with muscles on top of muscles. The fight hit the ground and Shamrock was all over Leinenger with amateur wrestling style transitions, eventually breaking him down up against the fence and forcing the tapout after several brutal punches at the 4:49 mark.


    vs

    Quarterfinal Match: Steve Jennum(Ninjitsu) vs Harold Howard(Karate)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Harold Howard cut a pretty interesting interview last night at the press conference, bringing out his entourage for a brick breaking exhibition:


    He followed it up by opening this fight up with a kick that will be remembered forever...


    Jennum eventually mounts him and forces him to submit with punches after only 1:29. The Ninja police officer from Omaha Nebraska moves on!


    vs

    Quarterfinal Match: Rickson Gracie(Brazilian Ju Jitsu) vs Kimo(Street Fighting)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Rickson came out to the cage with his entire family with him. Kimo came out carrying a huge wooden cross on his back in a scene strait out of a pro wrestling show.


    Kimo pushed Rickson in a dramatic battle that was easily the best UFC fight up to this point. Rickson's family scrambled around the cage screaming advice at him, while also arguing with Kimo's cornerman who was doing the same right in front of them. Kimo had Rickson in legit trouble, landing a really hard right hand from the top position. Rickson used multiple knee's to the groin, headbutts, and pulled Kimo's ponytail relentlessly to overcome his size advantage and eventually force a tapout via armbar at 4:29.



    Semi-Final Round



    vs

    Semi-Final Match: Ken Shamrock(Hybrid Wrestling) vs Kieth Hackney(Kenpo)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter


    Hackney's unique striking style threw Shamrock off early on. Hackney was able to keep the fight standing and land a few light kicks. The two engaged in a heated exchange of palm strikes up against the fence, but Hackney seemed to be favoring his right hand, which could have been injured in the last fight. Shamrock took Hackney down in the scramble and slowly took his back, flattening him out with a Rear Naked Choke for the tapout at 4:34.

    vs

    Semi-Final Match: Rickson Gracie(Brazilian Ju Jitsu) vs Steve Jennum(Ninjitsu)

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    Rickson came out very aggressive in this fight, backing Jennum up into the cage with a steady march forward in his trademark grappling stance. Jennum took a wild swing at Rickson, but Rickson shot in on him and tied up in the clinch. Jennum fought Rickson off in the clinch for a solid minute up against the cage, using the fence to keep the fight from going to the ground. Rickson jumped up wrapped his legs around Jennum's body, catching him with a Guillotine Choke in the standing position, with one of his arms trapped by Rickson's legs. Jennum immediately taps out at the 3 minute mark. Rickson keeps the hold locked on until Jennum falls over to the mat. The referee has to fight to get him to release it. Steve Jennum's American Dream has been cut down by Rickson Gracie...

    vs

    Tournament Finals: Ken Shamrock vs Rickson Gracie II

    Wrestling Observer Newsletter

    The two winners of the first two UFC tournaments square off in a rematch to find an undisputed champion and both guys come into this fight completely exhausted and beaten, showing wear from their 2 previous fights in the tournament. Both guys cautiously circle around each other for several minutes before taking it to the ground. Rickson locked Shamrock in his guard and patiently weathered his conservative ground and pound strategy that helped him win their first encounter last November. Shamrock lands a few light grazing headbutts, some body-body-head punching combos, and some knees to the tailbone as Gracie patiently rides it out on his back for over 20 minutes. Shamrock gradually works Rickson up against the fence and lands a really heavy shot. Rickson pushes off of the fence as Shamrock begins getting impatient and really intense with his strikes. Rickson slowly works his arms up around Shamrock's neck into the very same Arm Triangle Choke that he beat Minoru Suzuki with at the last tournament. Shamrock violently tries to push up out of the hold, but Gracie keeps him locked in a tight guard and keeps him off balance. Ken slowly goes limp and Big John stops the fight! Shamrock has been choked out after 22 minutes!

    The Gracie family flies over the cage wall, pouring in and mobbing Rickson in the Octagon. Rickson Gracie is now the undisputed Ultimate Fighting Champion after defeating the only man to ever beat him.


    Rickson Gracie has turned the American Dream into the American Nightmare for 3 U.S. fighters tonight, defeating all 3 of them by submission on their own U.S. soil to win tonight's tournament. Rickson poses with the giant cardboard check for $60,000 and the Brazilian flag draped proudly over his shoulders. Rickson has brought his total winnings to $160,000 for the year of 1994 and has won the UFC II & III tournament titles, improving his record to 8-1 overall, all 8 wins by submission. Gracie Ju Jitsu has emerged as the dominant martial art... so far...

    As for Shamrock, he's revived and taken to the back on the shoulders of his trainers, completely exhausted after three grueling fights in one night. Shamrock drops to 5-1, and has fallen short of a repeat of his "American Dream" performance at UFC 1 when he defeated the Russian monster Alexandre Karelin in the epic USA vs Russia finals. Shamrock and Rickson have split their series with one win a piece...


    Bookerman's notes:

    UFC 3 is one of those shows that I didn't want to change much. This show was a big influence on Paul Heyman's direction for ECW at the time as far as his booking because it was all about the "No Rules" spectacle, and the way it unfolded in reality was like an ECW show, where everything was so unpredictable(seriously all that's missing is New Jack coming out at the end and attacking the winner with a trash can of weapons, it totally would have fit with how this show went down. ), and you had these wild characters that added some sort of comedic value(Harold Howard, his promos need to be seen). Old school UFC was really fun during this point. Among all the madness and violence spectacle, you had two absolute pure technique martial artists in Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie pioneering the sport into what it is today. I highly advice you to at least check out my review for this show in Fight Club, and/or Emperor's review in his thread down there.

    UFC IV: Revenge Of The Warriors
    Press Conference/Weigh Ins


    December 15th, 1994
    Bobs BBQ Road House
    Tulsa, Oklahoma


    One year ago the UFC opened up the gates of the Octagon to answer one question...


    Who is the Ultimate Fighter?


    The questions would be answered through the first 3 Ultimate Fighting Championship tournaments, where reputations where built and destroyed, martial arts were measured, tested, and found wanting...


    Through the first three tournaments one man emerged as this planet's Ultimate Fighting Champion. Second generation Brazilian Ju Jitsu master Rickson Gracie choked 4 men unconscious in the UFC II tournament before going on and running the table again at UFC III. Rickson defeated Ken Shamrock in the finals to avenge his only loss in the Octagon and sits firmly at the top of the UFC food chain.


    Tomorrow night on pay per view 5 of the worlds toughest warriors will return to the Ultimate proving ground, The Octagon! Three new challengers will enter a field of 8 World Warriors, in a one night tournament to determine a #1 contender to Rickson Gracie's Ultimate Fighting Championship! The winner of this tournament will be awarded a $50,000 prize, and will go on to face Rickson Gracie for the very first ever UFC Undisputed World Championship match at UFC V next April!


    Ladies and gentleman, introducing the Warriors...







    Ken Shamrock(6', 230)
    UFC Record: 5-1
    USA/Hybrid Wrestling

    Ken Shamrock won the hearts of martial arts fans worldwide when he won the very first UFC tournament last November, defeating Pat Smith in the opening round before going almost a full hour in a strategic chess match with Rickson Gracie. Shamrock clipped Rickson with a headbutt to render him unconscious, moving on to the finals to face the Russian wrestling monster, Alexandre Karelin. Shamrock caught Karelin in a heel-hook and won the first tournament with a submission. Ken would miss the UFC II tournament with a hand injury and was forced to sit and watch as Rickson Gracie choked out all 4 of his opponents to win the prize. The two Ultimate Fighting Champions would work their way through the UFC III tournament three months ago for an epic rematch in the finals. Rickson slipped on an Arm Triangle Choke to force Shamrock unconscious and win the title of Ultimate Fighting Champion. Shamrock returns tonight for revenge, in hopes of moving on and facing Rickson in a third fight for the very first ever UFC Undisputed World Championship belt at UFC V next April.






    Minoru Suzuki(5'10", 212)
    UFC Record: 2-1
    Japan/Hybrid Wrestling

    Minoru Suzuki is a pioneer of the young sport in Japan as one of the founding fathers of the Pancrase promotion. A master catch wrestler, Suzuki holds a submission victory over Ken Shamrock in Japan. Suzuki made his UFC debut in the UFC II tournament, making a name for himself when he defeated Don "The Dragon" Wilson in a thrilling fight. A cut over Suzuki's eyebrow eventually cost him in the third round of the tournament, with the blood loss contributing to the fatigue that helped Rickson Gracie sink in a choke to move on to the finals. Suzuki would go on to lose a fight against Bas Rutten in Japan in the Pancrase promotion in July of this year. Suzuki enters tomorrow night's tournament with hopes to avenge his loss to Rutten and move on to UFC V next April to face Rickson Gracie for the title and his revenge!






    Kimo(6'2", 250)
    UFC Record: 0-1
    USA/Street Fighting

    Even though he lost his only fight in the UFC, Kimo made a strong impression with his look, his attitude, and the way he pushed Rickson Gracie to his limits more so than anyone else Gracie has ever fought. Kimo was the first person other than Ken Shamrock to make Rickson look human, with their first round fight at UFC III generating a massive amount of buzz among the martial arts tape traders/collectors. Kimo has recently been featured in an article about "Mixed Fighting" in a recent issue of Black Belt Magazine. Tonight Kimo hopes to prove himself and move on to a rematch with Rickson at UFC V for the title!






    Volk Han(6'3", 235)
    UFC Record: 2-1
    Russia/Sambo

    Volk Han defeated acclaimed Thai-Boxer Ramon Dekkers, and Bas Rutten in the first two rounds of the UFC II tournament before losing to Hidehiko Yoshida in the semi-finals. Han returns tonight to make a run for the title that eluded him at UFC II.






    Bas Rutten(6'1", 205)
    UFC Record: 1-1
    Netherlands/Hybrid Wrestling

    Rutten's entertaining fighting style and his charismatic personality has won over the Japanese fans. Bas lost to Volk Han in the quarterfinals of UFC II before losing again in a fight against Ken Shamrock in Japan in the Pancrase promotion. Bas returns tonight to seek revenge against Shamrock and Volk Han on his way to a date with Rickson Gracie at UFC V!


    The five returning Warriors will enter the tournament with three new Challengers!....






    Dan Severn(6'2", 260)
    UFC Record: Debut
    USA/Wrestling

    Dan Severn is a journeyman amateur and professional wrestler from Coldwater Michigan, making his UFC debut.






    Melton Bowen(6', 225)
    UFC Record: Debut
    USA/Boxing

    Bowen is a ranked heavyweight boxer making his debut, and has chosen to compete with fingerless 8 oz. gloves(the first fighter to ever do so) to protect his hands instead of boxing gloves.






    Anthony Macias(5'10", 185)
    UFC Record: Debut
    USA/Kickboxing

    Macias is an accomplished amateur and pro kickboxer from Oklahoma. Macias is making his UFC debut tonight, and is the smallest man in the tournament.




    These are your 8 martial artists. Tomorrow night, they will fight it out until only 1 man is left standing as the Ultimate Fighting Champion!



    There can be only one!





    The first round match-ups have been set!

    Ken Shamrock vs Melton Bowen
    Volk Han vs Kimo
    Minoru Suzuki vs Bas Rutten
    Dan Severn vs Anthony Macias

    Shamrock, Rutten and Severn... damn. Although you've been treating Rutten not so well so I think I can take him out of the equation here and I figure Shamrock/Severn will be the main frontrunners. Go Beast!

    I'm becoming more and more of a fan of this Kimo guy. He's got a bad ass look, and did he legit carry a cross the the octagon? Almost to bad ass to fathom. I kinda hope he wrecks some fools, or is at least booked to be protected and kept strong in defeat. Maybe first-ever DQ in UFC history? Have him attack the ref?



    I love the uniqueness of this fed.
