Donny "The Bear Jew" Donowitz vs Jameson "Guinness" Connemara


On April 8th 2016, two of the greatest fighters of all time will face off for the CEC Lightweight Title. Currently they are number 1 and number 2 in the pound for pound rankings and this will determine who is the best fighter to currently grace MMATycoon. Recent history will show both fighters have been unbeaten in the CEC cage since their arrival late last year when CEC and Ascension merged. Each won the title they hold in their debut bouts here when Donowitz earned a decision over Victor Zsasz and Connemara outpointed Jupiter Jones but after a few wins their paths have taken a slightly different route. Donowitz went on to dominate in the Olympics and took home the Gold medal while Connemara suffered a loss at EVO in the tournament opener, seen by most as a shock defeat to James Robertson, a man he had beaten twice before. Jameson has since returned to CEC and went on a five fight win streak while improving his record here to 8-0. Donowitz meanwhile was involving himself in a quick fire trilogy at EVO with Olympics Featherweight Gold medalist, Tuomari Hurmio. Having lost the initial fight by rear naked choke, Donny returned to us to notch up a further 2 wins here and take his CEC record to 9-0 before heading back to avenge the loss to Hurmio. He did so by split decision which left it at a win apiece so the third fight had to happen. Donny took it, this time by unanimous decision. This brings us to where we are now, a fight to decide who truly is the number 1 fighter at the moment, maybe even of all time.

It's hard to say who the favourite in this fight actually is, it will probably divide the population. Donny has spoke of retirement, his age would suggest that day will be sooner rather than later but the fact is he is still fighting, still winning, still the top dog in the rankings. He also goes the full 5 rounds in most of his fights these days and wins, which really does show that his age is not something that can be regarded as a negative factor. He may be 42 but his conditioning is up there with the best of them. Connemara is 8 years younger at 34, he is also the slightly smaller, slightly lighter fighter, will this make him the quicker fighter? Safe money would be on a full 5 rounds ending with a judges decision when you look at Donowitz winning 62% that way and Connemara 57% while Donny has never been knocked out and Jameson has only a single stoppage loss. We can all speculate how this fight will go and we could argue it all day and night and still not come up with a definitive answer as to who will win. The one thing we can guarantee is that come April 8th we are going to witness one of the greatest fights of all time. Who you got?

This is probably the biggest fight I've seen in a while in MMA Tycoon. Two MMA Tycoon legends and I'm surprised it's taken this long for them two to meet in the cage. I just looked at Donny's fights and his first fight was in October 2010, that's 1 month after I joined, that's over 6 1/2 years. To see him last as long as he did is truly absurd and remarkable. I hope someone will take the time to honour this fight with a video preview.

 

I'm in two minds about who I want to win this one. Being from Northern Ireland has made me a fan of every Northern Irish and Irish fighter in the game and Jameson Connemara has been the fighting pride of Ireland in MMA Tycoon for quite some time. On the other hand Donny Donowitz is a truly amazing fighter and I don't think we'll ever see a fighter as dominant as him for as long as he has been. I'd love for him to win this last fight and then retire because then he's essentially done it all, he's beaten all the big names, there's nothing else for him to prove.

 

This is one fight I wanted to see a while ago when both were kicking ass, Jameson getting beat in the Olympics put this back for a while and that actually might have improved his chances of winning this fight. I can imagine that Donny is getting more and more rusty every day that passes and it's only a matter of time where his age gets the better of him and it leads to his defeat.

 

It's a complete honour to have a fighter fighting on the same card as this fight, I'll be making sure this one is on my spoiler list! 

 

Regardless of what happens, both fighters deserve their place in the MMA Tycoon Hall of Fame.  :notworthy:

 

 

Edit: I've added pictures of both fighters and edited the topic title. I want to pin the topic as I feel it deserves a lot of discussion both before and afterwards, plus I think it'd be good for new users to come see the discussion for a top fight in MMA Tycoon.

The bookies fav at the moment is Jameson Connemara merely due to his age.Me thinks Donowitz should have retire with his last fight being pound for pound number one at the  tender age of 42 which i cant see any fighter repeating ever

Far too close to call in my opinion. Bjorn and Mickey seem to be leaning towards Connemara but I'm 100% sitting on the fence. Can't wait though!

I think Donny takes it by split decision and then retires; don't know how a 42 year old fighter has stayed atop the rankings this long; but it can't last forever and will most likely never happen again

I think if Donny wins this one tonight, he's secured his place in the top 3 MMA Tycoon GOAT list. Tonal and Womba would be the other 2 for me.

Donnie's longevity and overall body of work are unmatched. I could see making an argument for GOAT.

I would've thought Santiago Colon would've been up there for GOAT; as he retired as #1 P4P. Can't be too many others who've done that

I guess you missed out the Hurmio vs Donowitz fights then. Good luck to both guys, neither are hindered by the engine in this fight.
