Fan Fiction Rules & Guidelines

THE RULES & GUIDELINES OF FAN FICTION


-There will be no flaming (insulting), spamming (making stupid, inane posts) and flame-baiting (luring someone into flaming you).

-You can't use deceased wrestlers. The only exception to this rule is if you're doing a federation that takes place in the 80s or something similar.

-Keep everything regarding your federation in one thread.

-There are three places where you can advertise a federation: in the thread of that federation, in your signature and in the Fed Thread. Nowhere else, if we find any advertising elsewhere, you will receive a warning for SPAM.

-Don't expect to get reviews from other people if you don't give reviews yourself. If you don't want any feedback to your shows, fine.

-Don't give feedback in the middle of a show. Posting in the middle of a show will result in deletion of your post and a warning for spam.

-You are not expected to leave a full on review of the show (though you can if you like). All you are required to do is to write a few comments with some substance behind them. This in no way shape or form means you can post one line reviews, they will be deleted and warned. So don’t post something like "Wow, great show! 9/10!".

-Even though it is creative writing, due to board rules we cannot allow racial and/or homophobic slurs/insults/etc. in your feds. This type of language will be warned immediately. And please note - racism is an automatic ban.

-Don't get mad when someone rips your show to pieces. Use the criticism in a positive way and use it to increase the quality of your federation. When someone insults you instead of giving good feedback, report that post to the Moderators.

-Don't bump your thread to the top if you've written nothing new in days. It just pushes other threads that are active down.

-If you're going to write a federation, put some effort in it. Stuff with horrendous grammar and spelling and no punctuation will be deleted. So will posts that only have ten or so sentences. They are regarded as spam. If you don't put effort into writing, don't even bother.

-If you're tired of your current federation and want to start a new one or return to an older federation, your current one must have at least four regular shows and a Pay-Per-View. This is done to prevent threads that have one or two posts in it. If you don't follow this rule, you'll be forbidden to start a new federation or return to an old federation for two weeks. If you make a fed within two weeks of the first one closing or return to an old fed, will we lock your thread, and it will not be opened for ANOTHER two weeks. For example, if you leave your thread on the 1st of the month and then make another one on the 10th, we will lock your new thread until the 24th. Two weeks from the opening of your new thread, remember that folks! For those whos fed follow the 'DVD Format' your fed must have contained at least four chapters in order to bypass the two week rule.

- Posters are now allowed a second fed, providing they have proven their commitment to their first fed. Permission to start a second fed will be granted from the moderating team. We will not consider anyone whose fed has not lasted at least two pay-per-views, however, this does not guarantee we will say yes.

- Two feds at a time Max.

- If you have two running at the same time, both must be updated a minimum of every 30 days. If this is not maintained without valid reason, one will be closed (poster's choice as to which is closed).

- If you abandon a fed/fed gets closed/etc., then you must wait until gaining permission again to start another second fed.

-You can also have one additional non-Fed related story in addition to your federation. This non-Fed has a two week rule, meaning you wait two weeks from the last post to post a new one.

-You do not need to contact WMS or RT to close a thread for you if you're moving on to a new project. Just let it drop to the bottom. We will also no longer be cleaning old threads for you -- start a new thread. Also, we do NOT delete threads. We keep them around for historical value.

-Spotlight of the Month: this is currently decided by the Power 10 Rankings. The winner is given the dubious honor of being the Spotlight of the Month. That Fed will be stickied for the entire month with the added extension “Spotlight of the Month” added to the end of their Fed Title.

-No more "I'll be starting a fed soon" or "more to come soon". Start your fed with substance or it will be deleted. And then you’ll have to wait two weeks to start another one.

-Plagiarizing is a serious offence and anyone caught doing so will be banned without warning.

-Multi-Participation Threads are banned for the time being, they descend into chaos too quick and quite frankly too much time is spent modding them.

-DO NOT post reviews of reviews, arguing with every person who reviews you. If you would like, after a substantial period of time, to reply to all reviews together, fine. Mindless bumps will not be accepted.

-Please note that all your shows and PPVs must take place in your thread not on a website elsewhere. Everybody else can write it here, so can you.

- The 20 Questions thread is a Question and Answer interview-like thread for the members of Fan Fiction. The “next” person to participate in the thread is chosen by the current person being interviewed. Please do not post asking to be next. The person before you makes that decision.

- Please do not post "get on AIM/MSN/Yahoo." If you want them to do so, send them a Private Message or Rep asking so. There is no need to waste a post doing so.

- General Discussion is banned from Fan Fiction. It was great while it lasted, but it was abused too many times.

-NO EROTIC LITERATURE!

Finally, a harsh reality for people: WMS and RT are the last word on a subject in FF. If we ask you, or tell you, to do something, it isn't a debate. At least not on the forum. If you have a problem, IM or PM one of us, and we will gladly sort it out.

Thank you.
The Fan Fiction Moderating Team,
WMS & RT

    See, now all I can picture is you playing DnD with some friends and rolling a 20 to put a Dragon in a Guillotine with its own tail.

      Re: The Ultimate Fighting Championship

      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.

                  Charlotte, North Carolina


                  Brian Kilmeade and Jim Brown welcome the pay per view audience to the Grady Cole Center, where a crowd of 3,000 have gathered to witness the Ultimate tournament in combat sports today... The Ultimate Fighting Championship.

                  Tonight, eight men will slug it out in an open-weight tournament for a purse of $60,000 and the title of The Ultimate Fighting Champion.

                  There are no rules.

                  No gloves...

                  No time limit...


                  Two men enter... only one walks away... one step closer to martial arts immortality...

                  It's time to open up the gates of the Octagon!

                  We get a brief introduction with our doctors on hand, cutmen, commissioners, and our referee Big John Mccarthy.


                  +++ LET'S GET IT ON! +++


                  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...

                  Tournament Finals


                  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...

                    UFC III: The American Dream
                    September 9th, 1994
                    Grady Cole Center
                    Charlotte, North Carolina


                    Brian Kilmeade and Jim Brown welcome the pay per view audience to the Grady Cole Center, where a crowd of 3,000 have gathered to witness the Ultimate tournament in combat sports today... The Ultimate Fighting Championship.

                    Tonight, eight men will slug it out in an open-weight tournament for a purse of $60,000 and the title of The Ultimate Fighting Champion.

                    There are no rules.

                    No gloves...

                    No time limit...


                    Two men enter... only one walks away... one step closer to martial arts immortality...

                    It's time to open up the gates of the Octagon!

                    We get a brief introduction with our doctors on hand, cutmen, commissioners, and our referee Big John Mccarthy.


                    +++ LET'S GET IT ON! +++


                    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...

                    Tournament Finals


                    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.

                      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!....

                      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!

                              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!
