Bushido 48: The Kings of 205
Main & Co-Main Preview
 
1490999403bushido%2048.png
Main Event
Light-Heavyweight Title Eliminator
He "Shaolin" Mu (5-0-0, Bushido Debut) vs. Ryu "11th Planet" Aokison (8-1-0, Bushido Debut)
 
Since its conception, Bushido has been home to a number of great Light-Heavyweight fighters and tonight we will welcome two more as former DFC standouts He Mu and Ryu Aokison are set to face off in a title elimination bout. Fighting out of Tokyo by way of Hong Kong is the undefeated He Mu, a former Kickboxer and now rising star in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. Opposite him will stand the grappling sensation Ryu Aokison, a Fukushima native now living and training on the other side of the world in New York. As both men have a ton of hype behind them as well as the skills to back it up, this bout is being treated as an official title eliminator.
 
"Shaolin" is a Muay Thai specialist and up until now no fighter has come close to besting him on the feet. This is due to the Hong Kong native's deadly speed and accuracy coupled with his heavy handedness. Mu is not flawless however as he has been taken down before by better grapplers, although it is worth mentioning that he has managed to escape from their grasp quickly most of the time. A completely different fighter to that of his opponent is "11th Planet" Aokison, whose specialty lies in grappling. All of Aokison's wins (not counting a disqualification) have come by way of submission and this can be credited to his incredible wrestling and extensive Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu background. This main event is simply a classic striker vs. grappler fight and it's outcome will be decided by whichever man happens to impose his will and better execute his gameplan.
 
Co-Main Event
Light-Heavyweight Championship Bout
Sam McCullen (8-2-0, 6-2-0 Bushido) vs. Krystian "Polish Hooligan" Soszynski (6-2-0, 4-0-0 Bushido)
 
The Co-Main Event of the evening will welcome back the reigning, defending Light-Heavyweight Champion as he looks to earn his fourth total title defence with a win over the always-dangerous Krystian Soszynski. McCullen relinquished his title for a short while when he suffered a loss via TKO Cut to 5 to 1 underdog Osama Akharraz back on Bushido 37. Much to the "Polish Hooligan's" dismay, the pair would rematch soon after and the Scotsman was successful in reclaiming his strap. Now, Soszynski is finally being given his shot at the Champion and the fans can not wait to see how this one plays out.
 
The Glaswegian is a true blood-and-guts brawler that has never been afraid to come out swinging hard and heavy. The strongest aspect of Sam's technical abilities is his Boxing and we have seen those skills shine during his fights, where he has out-struck and knocked out almost all men that have come up against him. McCullen also has great Wrestling and BJJ which he mainly uses as defensive tools, to prevent grapplers and clinch-fighters from having their way with him. Unfortunately for the Champion, the so-called "Polish Hooligan" is one of the best Boxers in Bushido and he will be looking to beat Sam at his own game. The Poland native also has a similar level of grappling as the Scot, but he too uses it only in defense. Both men have incredible knockout power and gifted hands, so this will be a fantastic display of Boxing. Although the Challenger has the advantage when it comes to striking, it is worth noting that he has been knocked out before, twice, albeit a very long time ago. Can McCullen crack the chin of the terrifying challenger? or will the third man from Ganja Ninjas pick up a Bushido belt alongside his teammates Vilson and Aziz? Find out tomorrow, on Bushido 48: The Kings of 205.

7-2-0

Light-Heavyweight Champion

 

Clean, easy work, like I expected.
Let this be a lesson to all other 'champs' that builds their careers by picking easy opponents and avoiding true warriors—you can't run forever, bitches!

Now the division is free, best guys can get title shots. No need to thank me.

Changes to these rankings will occur after every event, and in the event of a departure from the organisation. They are not set in stone and hopefully not to be taken too seriously, and/or to heart. To qualify for a ranking, a fighter must have had at least one fight in the organisation, and must be currently signed to Bushido.

Cody Chalke (294143)

 

So it looks like i went into this fight with the wrong gameplan and the result is my first back-to-back loss of my career.

 

Time to reassess what went wrong and have a look at dropping down to Featherweight to see what happens there.

*Deep in the heart of Tokyo, the media gathers fresh from the conclusion of Bushido 48: The Kings of 205. Bushido owner Rei Rei is seen on the stage, but a man arrives on the stage*

 

1452400681BaA6ZLyCAAAcD5g.jpg

Grant Brophy steps onto the stage

 

GB: Good evening ladies and gentlemen. I understand you may not understand why I am here, but I feel this is the perfect time to make a hallmark announcement in Bushido history. Bushido is the premier organisation for 290k fighters in the world, and as such all fighters looking to prove they are the best should be arriving here. I have three such fighters currently under my management, all of whom have been called Champion. In fact, they are all current champions in the Amsterdam Fighting League organisation. Due to recent events in the org, I have decided to buy out their contracts with the org, meaning they are free to sign wherever they please.

 

I would like to announce the first of these fighters up to the stage now.

 

14621932508849.jpg

Zell Dincht

7-2-0

20170325123322belt2.jpg

 

Zell Dincht is a two time Middleweight champion with the Amsterdam Fighting League organisation, winning the title against King Phol back in October before successfully defending Jon Laston, King Phol again and Jack Brunson. He would lose the title to King Phol in their third encounter before winning the title against Iggy Steve when Phol left the org. Having defeated Steve and largely having no competition left in the org, Dincht left his contract and is pleased to announce he has signed a 4 fight contract with Bushido.

 

GB: I am delighted to have brought Dincht to Bushido and I expect great things from him as he develops as a fighter. I would like to now present the second fighter to the stage.

 

14612346177911.png

Seifer Almasy

6-1-0

20170325123322belt2.jpg

Seifer Almasy is the current AFL Heavyweight champion, and his path to the title was a story of redemption. He lost his debut fight in the org to Alexander Gruzdev, and a lot of doubts were made on his future following the loss. Victories over Raissa Fournier and Sergei Kharitonov would earn him a shot at the title, and a rematch with Gruzdev. Despite suffering some big shots in the first round, Almasy recovered in the second and landed some power shots that have come to define his fighting style and took the second round. He exploded in the third round, landing some big kicks, including a Spinning Back Kick which landed flush on Gruzdev’s abdomen before connecting clean with a head kick that Cro Cop would have been proud of that dropped Gruzdev. He allowed Gruzdev back to his feet before knocking him clean out with an uppercut to become the new Heavyweight champion. Wins over Frank Cash and Michael Conforti saw Almasy retain his title and with the division relatively cleaned out, Seifer is now looking for new challenges. Having already signed his contract earlier in the week due to his inactivity cause being used, he has already got his first fight in the organisation lined up against Elly Barnard at Bushido 50.

 

GB: I’m delighted to have signed Seifer to the organisation earlier in the week, and with his upcoming bout, he is training harder than ever to prove himself in his new home. Now, I would like to announce the final man to sign to Bushido tonight….

 

14621932403138.jpg

Irvine Kinneas

8-0-0

 

Irvine is an undefeated prospect in the MMA world, with an unblemished 8-0 professional record, with every win coming by way of (T)KO. Upon signing with AFL, under their old St Petersburg Fight Club name, he defeated Ilir Vrajoli in his debut match in the first round. Subsequent wins over Gobal Batra, Grister Charnstrom and Harold Nicolas would earn Kinneas a shot at the title, and another undefeated prospect in Shane Austin. Austin was coming into the bout on a 10 fight win streak, with Kinneas on a 5 fight win streak. Like Kinneas, Austin had won every fight via (T)KO, with the exception of one fight which was ruled a DQ due to his opponent testing positive for PED’s. Kinneas showed his maturity as a fighter on the night however, despite coming out of the first round slightly behind, he rallied in the second round and appeared to have just edged it. He had caused a cut on Austin, and Austin himself had opened a cut on Kinneas showing how close these two were in the cage. Kinneas managed to breakthrough in the third round however, opening up the cut more before knocking Austin down twice and rocking him. Despite being unable to secure the KO, he would eventually open the cut up to the point the referee was forced to stop the bout, but it was seen that Kinneas could have scored the KO while also being up on the scorecards. He would have a successful defence of his title by defeating Rob Pomper with a first round KO. He would sign off his AFL career with another TKO (Cut) victory over Shane Austin. With Kinneas feeling Austin was the best challenge in the division, and having defeated him twice, he now seeks other challenges and has arrived at Bushido to test himself against the very best. It has recently been announced that Kinneas will make his debut in the org on the 13th May against Ralph Gardner.

 

GB: There you have it ladies and gentlemen. All three of these men have signed to Bushido and you can expect to see them all in action soon, and to see them all wearing gold around their waists. I’ll hand you over to Bushido owner Rei Rei now and he’ll be taking a few questions.

 

1491682182reno.png

 

Report: Rei, you stand here having just signed 3 of Amsterdam Fighting League's current champions. In your mind, how does it reflect upon Bushido's stature in the MMA world that these fighters were willing to buy out their contracts in order to sign with your organisation?

 

Rei: You know, I've always considered Bushido to be the premier organisation for 290k+ fighters, and I feel like this just strengthens that thought. Since our conception we have striven to give home to the best and highest skilled fighters in the world, so naturally These men have been on my radar for quite some time - and I am happy to finally put pen to paper and get a deal done.

 

Reporter: Can you give us your thoughts of the three men you have just signed as individuals?

 

Rei: Irvine Kinneas comes into our organisation with an undefeated record and has won all of his fights via stoppage, this alone already puts him right up there in the title picture. I am excited to see how he matches up with the top dogs in the division and whether or not he can repeat his personal history by securing the belt.

 

With the reopening of our Middleweight division, we are looking to recruit the best 185ers in the world and I feel like Zell Dincht is the perfect man to get the weightclass rolling once more. Like you said, he's a former Champion and could very well become one again under our banner.

 

Last but not least, Seifer Almasy joins our Heavyweight division with already a string of incredible victories behind him. On Bushido 50 he is making his company debut against Elly Bernard, and we expect to see yet another great performance from the youngster. I feel that like his teammates, Almasy could quickly make a name for himself in one of our toughest divisions.

 

All three of these young stars have a bright future, and have already achieved so much despite their ages. I can't wait to announce fights for Irvine and Zell when the time comes, so keep your eyes peeled on that front. Thank you.

Ralph "Rage" Gardner (298336)

 

I've signed a multi fight deal and i can't wait to make my debut in Japan.

 

Much like my opponent Irvine Kinneas who left his previous org as a champ, i too left my last org as a champ.

 

This will be my toughest challenge to date so don't blink because this one will be a hard hitting affair.

Bushido 49: Superstardom

Main Card Preview

 

With two title fights and two huge Welterweight bouts on the main card, and an incredibly stacked undercard, this is possibly our biggest event yet!

 

1492331541b49.png

 

 
Main Event
Featured Featherweight Bout
Gil "Bipolar" Jacobson (10-0-0, Bushido Debut) vs. Tony Bunker (9-4-0, 9-4-0 Bushido)
 
Training out of fight capital of the world - Las Vegas - for the course of his remarkable trajectory, 22 year old Gil Jacobson will make his way to Tokyo Japan for the very first time, hungry to extend his streak of success. A world Champion before his twenty-first birthday, Jacobson has had a meteoric rise to the top in a career that has seen him not only win every fight he has been in, but every single round. Opposite him will stand one of Bushido's most experienced and well-adored Featherweights as former Champion and three-time contender Tony Bunker seeks redemption. This fight is between two of the Featherweight divisions best competitors, and it's result will no doubt be a deciding factor in the future title-picture.
 
Jacobson has shown no signs of slowing down at any point in his career and the emphatic winning streak he holds is indicative of such, as he has won 10 straight fights, finishing nine of them via KO or TKO. The secret to "Bipolar"'s success is in fact no secret at all, as the young American boasts an incredibly well-rounded skill-set -from his fantastic Boxing to his brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Whilst not the hardest hitter to step through the Bushido ropes, Jacobson is one of the most technical and accurate Boxers - having once landed 100 of an attempted 105 head strikes in one fight. The chances of Gil taking this fight to the mat are incredibly low, as he will no doubt look to piece his opponent up on the feet like he has done to the 10 men that opposed him in the past.
 
Capturing a Bushido world title is by no means an easy feat, and neither is earning five performance of the night bonuses in thirteen appearances, but Tony Bunker is a man that has managed to do both. Since beginning his career back on Bushido 10 where he would fight in the opening bout, Bunker rose to the top fast as he knocked out five men straight, earning him a shot at the Champion and a place as headliner - a fight in which he dominated. Since then, the Franklin native has had his fair share of ups and downs, and will no doubt be coming into this fight with nothing on his mind but redemption. Unlike his opponent this evening, Bunker fights in a very unorthodox and unpredictable style, as he seems to be comfortable in all areas of the game from close clinch exchanges to grappling on the mat. This is an interesting match up of styles and a bout that is sure to end the night with a bang.
 
20160419233025belto.png
Co-Main Event
Welterweight Championship Bout
Erick Darko (9-3-0, 8-2-0 Bushido) vs. "Crazy" Ira Wright (8-1-0, Bushido Debut)
 
Some say you are not truly a Champion until you defend the belt, and current Welterweight king Erick Darko hopes to make his first defence against company newcomer and training partner of the aforementioned Jacobson, Ira Wright. Since joining new management, Erick Darko has enjoyed a string of knockout victories, including one in which he dominated former Champion Amr Al As to snag the belt from his grasp. Ira Wright joins the promotion having already been a Champion in his previous one, and he is being given the opportunity to replicate history this evening.
 
Erick Darko began his career as a one dimensional grappler that would constantly search for submission openings even when they were not quite there. He has since evolved his game into not only becoming a a strong Wrestler, but has also developed great Boxing and overall striking capabilities. This diverse skill-set is what allowed Darko to defeat high level competition such as former Champions Jon Axe and Isaac Curtis as well as up-and-coming stars like Jose Carlos Luciano. I expect Darko to employ a varied gameplan this evening, mixing takedowns into the striking exchanges in order to exploit Ira Wright's weakest asset, his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It will be no easy task however, and the Champion accepts that this will be his toughest fight to date.
 
Fighting for a belt and not holding one for the first time since he was 19 years old, Los Angeles born Ira Wright steps onto Japanese soil with one goal in mind - to dethrone the king. Much like his teammate Jacobson, Gil is known for his very diverse set of skills, boasting expert Boxing as well as sound defensive grappling abilities. Wright always looks to his his heavy and scarily accurate hands to inflict a ton of accumulative damage to his opponents before eventually shutting their lights off, something he may be able to achieve against Darko who has suffered three TKO losses in the past. Will we see the successful defending of the Mexican's belt, or will a new name be added to the annals of Bushido history? Tune in and find out.
 
Main Card
Featured Welterweight Bout
Benson "Golden Lion" Whyte (9-1-0, 9-1-0 Bushido) vs. Marcus "Cold Storm" Vinicius II (14-5-0, 9-4-0 Bushido)
 
Two former Champions collide in this well-anticipated bout as the once undisputed king of Middleweight, Benson Whyte looks to continue building a name for himself in his new division as he faces the one-time defending former Welterweight strap-holder, Marcus Vinicius II. Having only lost in his MMA debut ten fights ago, Whyte has steadily risen to the top and in the process become both a dangerous and well-rounded fighter. Vinicius on the other hand has had a much longer career than his 7-year junior opponent and has experienced his fair share of setbacks, all of which shaping him into a resilient and driven combatant. 
 
Benson Whyte's roots lie in Boxing and because of such, he enjoys fighting at range as well as within the clinch. As of late, the young Jamaican has began mixing in kicks as well as knee strikes which shows that he has been developing a strong Muay Thai game. Whyte is considerably larger than his opponent this evening in terms of mass although he is slightly shorter, so it will be interesting to see how these factors aid either fighter in employing their gameplan. We know that because Vinicius is such a wizard on the mat, the "Golden Lion" will be looking to avoid taking the fight to the mat at all costs. It is important to note that although it was way back on the very first Bushido event, Benson Whyte's only career loss thus far has been by submission.
 
Brazilian grappling sensation Marcus Vinicius II once held the coveted Bushido Welterweight belt, and he is currently on the quest to retrieve it although he can not look past his opponent this evening. Vinicius is a submission specialist and has won the majority of his fights this way, having earned 9 career wins by way of submission as well as 4 performance of the night bonuses because of them. In all of his fights thus far, "Cold Storm" has continuously pushed for the takedown and once the fight moves to the mat, he begins to wear his opponent down with a constant chain of submission attempts. It is no secret what he aims to do in this fight, as he will need to suppress the striking of Benson Whyte and dictate where the fight takes place. 
 
20160419233025belto.png
Main Card
Lightweight Championship Bout
Jalaluddin "The Hashassin" Aziz (9-1-0, 9-1-0 Bushido) vs. "Chocolate Ganache" Atte Savitaipale (8-1-0, 3-0-0 Bushido)
 
The first of two title fights this evening will welcome back two-time Lightweight Champion and Road to Gold winner Jalaluddin Aziz as he looks to earn a third career title defence, as he faces off against the always-dangerous Atte Savitaipale. Since making his MMA debut in the Road to Gold tournament which he eventually won, Aziz has made a name for himself with a number of stellar performances including five that have earned him bonuses. Savitaipale has looked almost equally impressive in his career thus far, having earned three straight victories since joining the company as well as a number of finishes in his previous organisation.
 
The Afghani sensation is known for both his expert Boxing as well as his dangerous submission game and they are the skills that have earned him the belt not once but twice in his career thus far. "The Hashassin" enjoys piecing his opponents apart on the feet with his accurate and heavy hands before shooting a takedown and continuing to break them on the ground. In his only loss so far, Aziz found himself rocked and finished late in a round that he was considered to be winning which has caused some critics to question the durability of his chin. However, the young Champion has since avenged that loss and captured the title once more. 
 
The challenger this evening is Finland's Atte Savitaipale, an incredibly skilled Wrestler that has begun developing a striking game -although it remains the weakest aspect of his skill-set. "Chocolate Ganache" sets up his constant takedowns with strikes, although most of the shots he throws when standing do not hit their target. He will have to be careful about throwing lazy shots on the feet as Aziz will make him pay due to the vast difference in striking skill between the pair. It will be interesting to see how this pair match up as both have similar skill-sets and ways of fighting.
 
 
Thanks!

Bushido 49: Superstardom

Event Recap

 

1492331541b49.png

 

With a line-up as stacked as it had, Bushido 49 was sure to be success, and no surprise - it was! Not only was it our highest rated event with a rating of 290.52, but it also earned our highest ticket revenue yet, but beyond all, it allowed us to crack the global top 10 rankings, something I did not expect to achieve after not too long ago breaking into the top 20 for the first time. 

 

In the Main Event, company newcomer Gil Jacobson and long-time veteran Tony Bunker fought to a draw in a bout that earned them Fight of the Night credits. A new Champion was crowned in the Co-Main Event as Ira Wright impressed in his first appearance, putting away Erick Darko in the second round. A Welterweight clash between Benson Whyte and Marcus Vinicius II saw the youngster demonstrate his takedown defence as he dealt with Vinicius' expert grappling. Also, our Lightweight Champion Jalaluddin Aziz earned a third total career title defence with a win over Atte Savitaipale.

Also, I've been considering changing Bushido's round format to better suit the Japanese MMA feel that we try to go for (with the ring for example). In Rizin, Pride, and other organisations you'll often see 10 minute rounds, and although MMAT doesn't allow for a 1st round 10 minute and 2nd round 5 minute format that I'd prefer, there are still other options available. Obviously this can be a polarising subject so it will not be implemented unless there is enough feedback, and if changes were made, they would begin at a time where no fights are currently booked, like in the future at Bushido 55 or something. 

 

If you have an opinion, please share it, and if you have a fighter with us (or want to) then please vote on the poll below regarding round format

Just voted.... :)

 

Seems cool to have an endurance round and it does make it stand out a bit more with the 10 mins
