i don't remember but it turns out that yes, Matt Hughes did indeed ask people to compare Biblical figures to him during a TUF season. the man truly is the living embodiment of the more rural parts of the 618 area code, which (along with small rural mid-Missouri towns) are the only places I've ever seen multiple people wear JESUS DIDN'T TAP shirts.

He told everyone that he's a lot like Queen Esther

We've made it to the next event, PRIDE 15, but first we had a slight issue.

Mikey Burnett got injured and is out of his fight with Brian Gassaway, but it was too short notice to find him a replacement for the card so we moved that Welterweight Championship title fight to PRIDE 16 and are pitting him versus Matt Hughes. DON'T WORRY, I HAVE A PLAN REGARDLESS OF IF HUGHES WINS.

So let's take a look at PRIDE 15 results:




We got a pretty decent show! Hendo won big, and he can face Wandy next if we want that.


It also made us a fair amount of money too.



We've grown a bit, mostly in Japan again.



And our credibility that took a hit has made a rebound





Now, we've also got a new player in town with the WEC forming and launching. But their new CEO is someone we all know...







Now we've also got to look at the new PRIDE 16 main card given Hughes is fighting Gassaway for the title.




PRIDE 16 is going to be a lot of debuting fighters and also help us get started towards our Bushido series (name TBD).

I refuse to believe that any era of Vitor would be alive after a 10 minute first round, let alone capable of defeating Coleman in the 2nd

I see that the plan to make sure Gary Goodridge develops CTE in this timeline is going along without a hitch

We must use all available resources to take the title away from Royler, as no Gracie is allowed to be successful

Vitor is actually the #2 contender and high enough to warrant a shot vs Couture for the HW title.

Gary is gonna be given CTE til he quits basically.

Royler has some potential challengers but we should wait until after PRIDE 16 to see who would get the best shot. Or make a 1 night tournament for his belt.

Sped ahead to the next event and there's not been too much of major news aside from one of our lords & saviors joining the MMA game...



I acted pretty fast on this one.



Anyway PRIDE 16 went off without a hitch and things turned out pretty sweet for us overall.




Got a nice result with Wandy going on an absolute KO spree lately that's set him up for a nice title fight with Hendo.

Matt Hughes is our new WW champion, but again I HAVE A PLAN FOR THIS, BEAR WITH ME.

Some of our newer division lads made some nice debuts like Big Frog Curran.

We grew a decent amount in popularity as well as making a boat load of cash because I'm underpaying these guys incredibly (which is still higher than the other orgs in this game).




A few days after this event a big mouth brash boy decided to talk about Fedor...




We also got some new highers thanks to DEEP shutting down their WW division, but also picked up this unknown lad that seems to be our CEO's buddy or something. Idk if you've heard of him.



And some dude who has the same name as some bubble gum company




We also sped up time a tad bit further and scheduled 2 more events, the 2nd of which I'll announce later but I want you to see this card and tell me if its as nice as I think it seems.




Sadly for Severn/Shamrock I can't make it a no time limit bout, but we already have a 10min 1st round, and 2 5min rounds after. Hopefully one of the geriatrics gasses out and his opponent wins.

I'm also keeping an eye on DEEP & RINGS to see which we can take over and make our feeder org later. We want their stability to be lower than these which presently are the two lowest in all the MMA orgs.

We can do incredibly long bouts. Like 1x10mins, then 5x5mins.

I am obviously pleased to see Takada get a win but Pride's biggest star, the main eventer of 6 of the first 7 shows being buried on the prelims is appalling disrespect.

Looking forward to him crushing that cop from Croatia. K1 level kickboxing will never beat Tokyo Dome headlining Nobuhiko Takada. UWF-I NEVER DIE

Stiebling was one of the first "success through uncomfortable racism" guys; he won an international vale tudo championship in a tournament that was themed around USA vs Brazil, so he named himself The Brazilian Killa and got picked up by Pride and promptly smashed Allan Goes and I think Wallid, so at that point basically every Brazilian fighter on the planet wanted to both fight and murder him and he almost talked his way into a main event title fight with Wanderlei, but instead wound up getting completely hosed up by his teammate, some 8-1 debuting dude no one had ever heard of named Anderson Silva, and that was pretty much the end of that overnight.

So progressed a lot of our talent that just fought have recovered, and we got a lot of signings from lighter weight divisions to make our own small man divisions bigger.

Hughes winning the WW title was a bummer, so I set up another 1 night tournament for the WW Title and am going to force Hughes to have to do 1 night tournaments until he loses. Sadly the WW division is a bit thin but this should be a good deal of fun.

We've also set up our own variant of UFC's Fight Night series called PRIDE Chiansa Senshi which Google Translate tells me means "PRIDE Small Warriors" and is going to be our tiny man fighting shows. I went ahead and made the card as you can see below.

Let's get started with some updates before revealing the results of PRIDE 17

First up, we got a retirement to announce.



We also got some new people spawning in the game world, some of whom I'm gonna try and sign right away. Frank Mir being one of them but I lost the screenshot.



With Ginele Marquez I'm going to start to form a women's division and get us early in on the WMMA evolution.



Also Ben Rothwell got in the news which helped our popularity and credibility!



OK now let's look at Pride 17




Hendo beating Wanderlei is pretty big news and gives him a lot of credibility. That's the top 2 guys in the division he has beaten, and an Openweight GP winner too.

Minowaman getting the win over Renzo is also good for us too, since all Gracies are cowards in this universe apparently (Renzo has been turning down fight offers left and right up to this point).

Fedor also put Overeem in his place, to the point I may move Alistair down to our 205lbs division for a spell.

Also Evangalista Santos pulled out of the fight with Paulo Filho with an injury, so I picked up a free agent in the form of Fryklund (his org shut down his division making him easy pickings).

Now...I've played World of MMA for a good while, and I've never seen a fight rated as "awful" like we see with Ken & Dan so let's take a look at how bad of a fight this was.

Here's a match breakdown.



100 combined punches for the whole fight...

Despite this atrocious fight we did grow in popularity.



We also made some good money off the card and Wandy became our first fighter to make over 100k in a single fight.



However, we took a bunch of hits to our credibility thanks to my questionable matchmaking.



Sadly though we had a retirement from one of our legendary fighters. (I should work on getting us a Hall of Fame).

So I progressed further and ran our "Small Warriors" debut card.

But before we get to that we got some new signees.




Also we reached the period where 9/11 did happen in-game and guess whose card is the first major MMA event since the attacks?



Now onto our event




Royler winning big is good for our title but we should probably work some people up to win the belt off him.

Hughes won the one-night tournament which means he's gonna have to defend his belt ASAP and constantly defend until he loses, then I'm gonna move him up to the next weight division.

For whatever reason the post-event screen either didn't show up or I somehow clicked past it without realizing. So this is our overall progress.



Each % means for that level, so if you look at USA we are ~40% of the way to making it to "High Level Regional", then we'll be able to get up to "National"

Our credibility took a big bump from this card despite the lackluster reviews, and we made some decent money off of it too.



Our stability remains high.




We've set up our next event and this time it's going to be in Brazil. Brazil is 100% lucrative, has no drug testing, and the public perception is high. For comparison, Tohuko, Japan (where we've ran all our events thus far) is 90% lucrative.

I've put together a pretty solid card which has a nice main event wherein we have a hometown hero taking on a gringo for the Pride HW belt.




I have also set up a Grand Prix for the HW Grand Prix belt since we have not put that on the line at all.



Simultaneously, we need to put the PRIDE Lightweight belt on the light so we put together a 4 man tournament we're gonna run as the main events of our next two "Chiansa Senshi" shows as well as put Royler's belt on the line for another Chiansa Senshi show once I get some more guys on the roster to fill out enough of these cards.
