Ok so heres the format. MMA never started really with Pride never starting or UFC. Its 2008 and we bring all the best of each style into a 16 man tournament. The only guy we really cheated of was Bruce Lee who is dead and Sabakura who did MMA but try to ignore him for his MMA fights and think of him purely as a catch wrestler.

Here is round one of the tournament

Sakuraba (Catch Wrestling) vs Superstar (Kung Fu)

Chuck Norris (Karate) vs. Bruce Lee (Jeet Kune Do)

Kimbo Slice (Pit Fighting) vs. Asashoryu Akinori (sumo)

Sambo- Igor Yakimov (Sambo) vs Remy Bojansky (Muay Thai)

Judo - Pawel Nastula (Judo) vs. Lamon Brewster

Brock Lesnar (Wrestling) vs Lateef Crowder (Capoeira)

Daba Modibo Keita (Taekwondo) vs. Jerome Lebanner (Kickboxing)

Mijail Lopez (Greco Roman) vs. Rickson Gracie (Brazilian JJ)

I will pick the winners based on your total votes (picks on who wins) and make the 2nd round once a number of choices are made.
Remember the rules are similar to UFC 1 as there really are no rules. The only thing that won't be allow is eye gouging which just isnt cool lol. Also, there are no rounds to any of these fights as its just discussion so the fight goes til someone is KO'ed, Subbed, or unable to fight.

Thanks for posting your picks

Sakuraba (Catch Wrestling) vs Superstar (Kung Fu)
Fight lacks entertainment as Sakuraba remains back avoiding any stikes. Superstar remains in his stance, slowly coming foward until Sakuraba goes in for a takedown. Superstar goes to throw a punch but Sakuraba is already in. Hugging Superstar, he throws him to the ground and has side control. Sakuraba then catches Superstar off guard by throwing knees into his side. Superstar looks to be in pain after minutes of being beat down. Sakuraba gets in full mount and ends the fight.
Winner Sakuraba by KO

Chuck Norris (Karate) vs. Bruce Lee (Jeet Kune Do)
Fight starts slow as both look to counter. Eventually Lee goes in with some leg kicks til one targets Norris in the crouch. Norris goes down and after a few kicks to the face, Norris is KO'ed with in 2 minutes of the fight
Winner- Bruce Lee KO

Kimbo Slice (Pit Fighting) vs. Asashoryu Akinori (sumo)
Akward looking fight. Slice comes in with haymakers as Akinori looks like he is a lot of pain. Eventually Akinori falls on his stomach when Kimbo backs away and Kimbo finishes him with a few more hits to the head.
Winner- Kimo Slice by KO

Sambo- Igor Yakimov (Sambo) vs Remy Bojansky (Muay Thai)
This fight turns into a clinch war for the first few minutes, Igor looks more dominate but Bohansky manages to remain standing while throwing a fews knees in the process while pressed against the cage. Eventually Igor losses control of Remy against the cage wall and eats a few punches and a flying knee which sends Igor to the his knees. Almost out, Igor manages to pull Bojansky down and gets side control. Hammer fists for the next few mintues leaves Bojansky bloody as he struggles to get back up. Bojansky eventually gets to his knees in a clinch with Igor and when going up, Remy lands a sweet Knee right on Igors jaw and ends the fight. FIGHT OF THE NIGHT
Winner- Remy Bojansky by KO

Judo - Pawel Nastula (Judo) vs. Lamon Brewster (Boxer)
Brewster comes into the fight smart and keeps distance while throwing some jabs. Nastula eventually takes advantage of Lamon being near the cage and pushes him against it. Eventually Pawel scores a sweet takedown, throwing Brewster over his back and gets side control. From there, Brewster in left in agony from the takedown and eats elbows and hammer fists. Pawel gets full mount and throws hooks until Lamon rolls over and takes a rear naked choke. Brewster stands up with the choke locked in attempting to punch Pawel from behind and eventually pull his arm out but fails. Brester losses energy and falls to the ground unconcious.
Winner- Pawel Nastula by Submission (Rear Naked Choke)

Brock Lesnar (Wrestling) vs Lateef Crowder (Capoeira)
Crowder gets no time to do any fancy moves as Brock charges in and full out tackles him into the ground. Crowder tries to escape but eats punches til Lesnar gets in full guard and eventually knocks him out.
Winner- Brock Lesnar by KO

Daba Modibo Keita (Taekwondo) vs. Jerome Lebanner (Kickboxing)
Fight starts slow, Jerome finds his range after a few hard leg kicks that send Keita limping almost. Lebanner lands a perfect kick to the head of Daba and sends him to the ground for the easy KO.
Winner- Jerome Lebanner

Mijail Lopez (Greco Roman) vs. Rickson Gracie (Brazilian JJ)
Fight starts with Lopez coming in and easily throwing Rickson to the ground. Immediately though, we find Rickson was waiting for the throwdown. He sinks an armbar in soon after and ends the fight.
Winner- Rickson Gracie by Submission (Armbar)

1. Saku charges Super, Running at full speed, only backwards.. when he gets there Super tries throwing strikes but they dont seem to be doing much damage to Sakus back.. Saku catches an arm, and sets up for a keylock, then uses the arm to spin super to the ground and finish the submission.. The ref calls off the fight but Super is protesting loudly becuase he didint tap, but its quite obvious that his arm is hanging strangly and is broken.

2. Chuck Norris begins by dominating Bruce.. Chuck blows are powerfull, and accurate, but bruce manages to start timing them.. with his speed, Bruce parries an entire combo thrown by Chuck, then Bruce side kicks Chuck into a giant pile of boxes. Bruce climbs ontop of chuck grabbing his chest hair, forcing chuck to tap out or pass out.

3. This fight ends quickly.. Akinori runs at Kimbo fullspeed throwing sumo slaps, but Akinori ends up on the ground. Kimbo kicks him in the face and Akinoris tooth goes flying twords the commentators.

4. Both fighters circle for a while, then Igor goes for the take down.. Remy catches him with a knee on the way in and knocks him out.

5. Lamon Brewster comes to the fight wearing one boxing glove on his left hand.. he circle and moves back throwing jabs into the air.. Pawel keeps his hands up and delivers some short kicks to Lamon's knee.. then suddenly Pawel shoots in and takes Lamon Brewster down.. Lamon taps out before any strikes or submissions were even thought of.

6.

We all saw bloodsport... Lateef does jumping monkey kicks, but he just bounces off of Brock.. Brock picks him up and strangles him to death.

7. Daba opens the match by doing some insane aerial quadruple kick.. He then lands in front of Jerome.. Daba throws some flicky leg kicks.. Jerome just stands there looking at him thinking "wtf?" Jerome then kicks Daba's head off.. Jerome looks around Frightened, and tries to put the head back on.

8. Lopez charges Rickson and grabs an easy takedown. Lopez comments.. "hahaha what are you gonna do now karate man? you gonna punch me from down there?" Rickson puts a traingle choke on Lopez, and mumbles something in Portuguese roughly translated to "eat my nuts"

This was all written considering the knowledge the fighters would have of each other at the time :)

Sakuraba, easily

Bruce lee, just a way better fighter than norris was. Out strikes him and takes him out with a series of rapid fire counter strikes

Kimbo takes out the sumo

Remy Bojansky, hes athletic enough to avoid the grappling and catch him with a huge shot that puts him down early

Brewster is a really big guy, but his complete lack of grappling period would kill his chances, all nastula would have to do is pull guard. And countering judo when you have nog rappling base at all is near impossible against someone of nastula's level.

Brock lesnar takes the guy down once he tries a handstand kick and it breaks the guys arm, quickest match of the night. Capoeira lol

Lebanner stands toe to toe with him and beats the life out of him

Rickson, tough match to get the guy on the ground but hes still in phenomenal shape and probably can, what clinches it is what does teh greco guy do to win? he cant take him down without danger... and holding him in the clicnh is just asking rickson to try to fall to the ground into guard.

We all picked exactly the same winners, I guess its time for the next round?

Sakuraba (Catch Wrestling) vs Bruce Lee (Jeet Kune Do)

Kimbo Slice (Pit Fighting) vs. Remy Bojansky (Muay Thai)

Pawel Nastula (Judo) vs. Brock Lesnar (Wrestling)

Rickson Gracie (Brazilian JJ) vs. Jerome Lebanner (Kickboxing)



1. Bruce starts out by throwing kick combos to Sakus legs and mid section. Saku doesnt like this so he moves in for the takedown. He is very surprised by Lee's takedown defense, and realises Lee must have some wrestling training.. however after a few minutes of struggling, Saku is able to use his size, and some fancy techniques to bring Bruce down. Once on the ground Saku goes for a over under choke, it seems to be succes full, until bruce starts hammering away at sakus balls with his infamous 1 inch punch. Saku clutchs his jewels and Lee stands up. He grabs saku by the hair, throws three punches to sakus mid section, then kicks him in the face for the k.o

Winner Bruce Lee


2. The fight lasts 10 minutes, with Remy on the out side picking his shots and backing up, with kimbo chasing, never getting in close enough to land some punches. Eventually Kimbo does get close enough to punch, but hes too slow and Remy grabs the clinch and starts hammering away with knees.. Kimbo taps out, probly more from exhuastions then the strikes.

Winner Remy Bojansky


3. Pawel seems to be overwhelemed.. none of his judo techniques seem to be helping him against the sheer power of Brock. On oone of Pawels takedown attempts, Brock reverses it, and lands on top, pounding out a victory.

Winner Brock Lesner

4. Jerome gives Rickson the hardest fight of his career.. Jerome seems very hard for Rickson to take down. He chases Rickson around the ring with leg kicks that tear Rickson apart. Eventually Rickson does get the fight to the mat. He pulls out an armbar for the victory. After the fight Rickson is seen limping away on his corners shoulders.. It is soon announced that Rickson has broken his ankle and cant continue. After a quick check of his bowels, Steven Seagal is called in as the alternate for the next match.

Winner Rickson Gracie, with Steven Seagal (Aikido) Fighting in his place for the next match up.

If you were gonna do this, you could've done it a lot better. Not a good setup you established. Not the right names, no year (or is it total dream where everyone is at their peak, which makes this less than useless). Make it realistic yet interesting, please.

It was the best I knew, we had a topic for people to tell the names and styles but it seemed mostly like me and pookies finding guys.
I am pretty much only into watching MMA so I don;t keep track of any of these style, even boxing I really didnt know to many big names. Its not to much to be taken realistic I guess since a lot of it is hugely hypothetical to happen and one of our guys is dead along with most of them prob past their prime.

Feel free through to give some names, we can always do another one of this better and more believable.

7/16/08 12:27:53AM
The names we have now are fien and like pit said he already had a whole topic to pick the fighters so if you missed out, sorry your late, after the tourny you can start a new one.

I say we move on to round 2, all 3 of us that made picks had exactly the same results.


MrSmiley... Lee beating Saku is not utter BS.. if you look at my favorite fighters list, Saku is my number one. What most people dont realise is Bruce Lee is extremely well rounded, He has a backround in Boxing, and wrestling, and trained Judo under Gene Labelle, widely considered to be one of the greatest grapplers of all time. Also Bruces conditioning was above most professional fighters. He did more training on a daily bases then some UFC fighters do before a title fight. Bruce is definatly out weighed by a big margin, but his power is phenominal, he could kick a heavy bag and have it arc up at a 90 angle. He could smash a wood block dangling froma rope. His biggest asset tho was his speed. When filiming the fight scenes, they had to slow the frame rate down x4 other wise Lee's punches wouldnt apear on film.

Now as for Saku.. remember the only training he has is catch wrestling.. he has never fought someone outside his sport, in our UFC1 storyline.

Now all this being said.. is it likely that lee would win?.. I give him about a 45% success rate, saku a 55%, and in my pick Lee just happened to win.

Lee also had virtualy no real combat experience.He also kicked Gene Lebell,and Lebelle said himself he was glad Lee wasn't a bigger guy because he "could" have knocked him out if he had weighed about 200lbs.That was on his website for a long time.Don't know about now.Lebell and Lee were very good friends though,and Lebell never says anything negative about him.Though I found that quote interesting.
If you watch,I believe "Kiss of the Dragon",when Chuck Norris is talking about Bruce creating Jeet Kune Do,Lee told Norris he was not going to include head kicks,because "headkicks could not be realisticly used in a fight".
Lee later included them because Norris told him if you have the ability to kick someone in the head,you should just leave it in anyway.
When Norris made that statement,that's all the proof anyone needs to realize Bruce Lee's actualy combat experience was very little.I've herd all of Lee's stories before and have seen his movies.Amazing physical feats doesn't mean your unbeatable,and still some of what I hear about Lee is hearsay.

Even if this is without MMA experience,Saku still wins based on the fact he "actualy" fights.Lee was a movie star who brought martial arts to America,and for that he will be a legend.But people have got to get realistic.

I say we move on to round 2, all 3 of us that made picks had exactly the same results.




I guess round 2 should begin, I wanted to give it a day to make sure everyone had a chance to pick.

Sakuraba (Catch Wrestling) vs Bruce Lee (Jeet Kune Do)
Fight begins with Sakuraba charging and Lee backing around the ring throwing some punches and low leg kicks, this continues for a fairly long time until Sakuraba tires and Lee begins throwing some kick ass combos. Sakuraba falls over and Lee gets his back. Right when you think Lee will sink in the choke, Sakuraba throws his chin down to guard. An evil look comes into Lee's eye as he then bites and rips Sakurabas ear off (mike tyson style) and then bites at his neck. Sakuraba screams in fear and taps as Lee has literally lost it.
Winner- Bruce Lee by being a savage killer

Kimbo Slice (Pit Fighting) vs. Remy Bojansky (Muay Thai)
Remy keeps distance and continues landing sick head kicks on Kimbo everytime he goes for a full out haymaker. Kimo appears out of it, but continues this until looking fatigued. Bojansky decides to clinch and knees Kimbo in the stomach and then crotch sending him down. Remy then dances around the ring until finally deciding to finish Kimbo with an axe kick.
Winner- Remy Bojansky

Pawel Nastula (Judo) vs. Brock Lesnar (Wrestling)
Lesnar once again goes to tackle his opponent but Pawel throws Lesnar over his back leaving him in pain on the mat. Pawel gets full mount and throws hammer fist but Lesnar appears to recover, pushes Pawel off, and controls the fight on the ground. Eventually, Brock gets full mount and beats Nastula out.
Winner- Brock Lesnar

Rickson Gracie (Brazilian JJ) vs. Jerome Lebanner (Kickboxing)
The best fight of the night as both these guys belong in the finals. Lebanner keeps distance and keeps his kicks low to avoid being taken down. Rickson continues to slowly move foward until taking advantage of a higher kick. With an arm around Lebanner's leg Rickson jumps in the air to wrap his legs and sink what seemed like a flying knee bar in and leaves Jerome in pain. Eventually Jerome's leg snaps but he doesn't tap. Rickson gives up on the leg and stands trying to move in for side control. Rickson is caught off guard by a sick up kick with Jerome's other leg and is KO'ed.
Winner- Jerome Lebanner but Rickson continues as Lebanner is unable to fight with a broken leg.


Friday we will do round 3
Pookie
7/16/08 9:52:36PM
Sakuraba vs. Bruce Lee - Bruce lee utilizes his foot work and evasiveness by trying to stick and move, quick side kicks and jabs. Sakuraba eventually fakes for a takedown goes for a double hand slap and at the last moment drops down and gets single leg before taking lee to the mat, from there the bigger more experienced fighter muscles into side control, grabs an arm and locks into a kimoura, lee's flexibility amazes the crowd as the arm is pushed back to the point where its touching the back of his head before he taps out.
Both fighters shake hands after the fight and Lee raises Sak's hand before the decision is announced.

Remy vs. Kimbo - From the first exchange kimbo is eating leg kicks, kimbo lumbers forward trying to land a powerful left hook, remy feign's a quick right, kimbo ducks and weaves and is hit by a flying knee that puts kimbo to sleep.

Nastula v. Brock - Brock powers for a takedown and gets it, but loses position and is quickly put to sleep via RNC by the legendary Judo practitioner.
(If hughes could easily get on his back when he first started mma training, imagine what nastula would do)

Lebanner v. Rickson - The fight goes exactly like Akiyama v. Lebanner, ending in a Knee KO to the smaller rickson.

The kick if I remember was a body kick, wich in most cases solid body kicks dont knock people out, they paralys them.

You cant exactly take what other celeberties say into account 100% either. There are also celeberties that say they witnessed Bruce Lee taking on legion after legion of extras who thought they could beat Bruce up, and he dispatched like 15 in a single day. I dont belive that either. I just belive what Lee wrote and drew pictures of himself. He has illustrations and comments on head kicks. Bruce didnt compete back then, because from what he said, most of that stars competed in point fighting karate match ups, or there was american kickboxing where Lee's entire aresenal of moves practically, were banned. He does however have several accounts of being forced to fight on the streets back in China. Lee did have fight experience, just not in the ring. Look, kimbo was a street fighter, and he had no problem stepping in the ring with a golden gloves boxing champion.. a guy that went the distance with lenox lewis, and evander holyfield. Bruce also did a ton of full contact sparring, its not like he was running a mcdojo.. if you look at the equpment he was using, they were using Kendo gloves, so they could go full on grappling and stricking at the same time. It dont really matter how big you are to knock someone out, you can go on youtube watch 90lb girls put 180lb men to sleep with a quick one on the chin.

The only thing diffrent from Kimbo and Bruce, is that Bruce had way more training, was way more well rounded, and had conditioning x1000. PLus Bruces apponent is also unexperienced in this style of fighting.

Im not saying Lee would dominate this fight, or even be in favor, im just saying he has a decent shot at victory, and in my pick him came out with the win.
