#916056 Florida Fight Squad (16-19 Year Old Fighters Only)

Posted by BuffMinion on Yesterday, 05:24 AM

Florida Fight Squad "Of the Night" Awards Recap!

 

FFS 7: South Bay

 

Venue: Power Plant (Raining)

Fight of the Night

 

25w22.jpg VS 38w9.jpg

 

United_Kingdom.png Sergio Pizzorno (1-0) vs Germany.png Dudley "The Powerhouse" Dilbrandt (0-1)

Winner: United_Kingdom.png Sergio Pizzorno

Decision (Unanimous) / 3 minutes

Despite the pouring rain, intensity of the crowd, & the unnerving buzz of the nearby electrical machinery, these two 16-year old fighters were calm as a cucumber & ready to fight.

Dilbrandt, the taller, heavier fighter rushed forward aggressively trying to grab a hold of Pizzorno but the rain made it nearly impossible.

However, the poor visibility didn't seem to be a hindrance to Pizzorno as all of his punches hit their mark.

Pizzorno already having rocked Dilbrandt earlier in the fight sent his opponent crashing into the mud with a series of combos.

Pizzorno pursued him onto the ground looking for a finish.

Pizzorno tried all he could to finish the fight with a flurry of punches & elbows from the half guard but they either hit the air or the mud.

Dilbrandt hung in there on the defensive & even attempted a Guillotine that was easily escaped.

The fight ended shortly after that with a clear, concise winner. 

I see a rematch in the future for these young stars in the making.

 

Knockout of the Night

Russian_Federation.png Khizri Aliyev (1-1)

KO (punch) / 47 seconds

Aliyev's opponent attempted several takedowns at the start of the fight.

In these grappling exchanges, Aliyev was shoved right into the protective fencing mere feet away from the dangerous, electrical transformers.

Sensing the real danger he was in, Aliyev stepped on the gas & rocked his opponent with punches ending it with a massive overhand right leaving his Canadian opponent facedown in the mud.

 

Submission of the Night

Canada.png Isaiah "Filthy" Laughlin (3-2)

Kimura / 57 seconds

While the poor weather conditions didn't favor grappling much at this event somebody forgot to tell Isaiah Laughlin.

After getting hit with a body shot & a big left hand, Isaiah changed levels & drove  through with a really nice takedown into side control.

No so good for them was they managed to plow through & partially slide under the chain link security fence with both guys getting all cut to hell in the process.

Despite the slickness of the blood & rain water, Isaiah fished for armlocks until finally getting a good Kimura grip & finishing the hold tapping out his opponent.

Posted by BuffMinion on 25 May 2020 - 07:58 AM

Florida Fight Squad "Of the Night" Awards Recap!

 

FFS 6: Bunnell

 

Venue: Scrapyard

 

1587628895Hunts_point_scrapyard.jpg

 

Fight of the Night

 

12w5.jpg VS 32w18.jpg

 

United_Kingdom.png "Troublesome" Matthew Fritz (1-0) vs United_Kingdom.png Killian Hassan (1-1)

Winner: United_Kingdom.png "Troublesome" Matthew Fritz

TKO (strikes) / 2 minutes 51 seconds

The UK earned some respect from the locals here in Florida as both fighters showed us how the Brits throw down.

For the first minute, Fritz battered Hassan with punches.

Hassan, seemingly unphased, continued to move forward but showed virtually no offense & was content to eat shots showing off his durability.

Hassan eventually shot in & scored a takedown.

However, nothing was attempted from the advantageous position & shockingly Hassan stood back up.

This was perfectly okay with Fritz as he went back to work tenderizing Hassan's face.

After a succession of punches, Fritz rocked Hassan with a lunging uppercut & then planted his feet landing a really nice straight left hand that dropped Hassan.

Hassan had no idea where he was & tried to hang in there but the ref called it off shortly after.

The fans were treated to a great display of Fritz's boxing prowess & Hassan's durability.

 

Knockout of the Night

 

43w13.jpg

 

Russian_Federation.png Oleg "The Gator" Gazbinski (1-0)

KO (punch) / 21 seconds

Both fighters came out swingin' as soon as the ref said "FIGHT!".

Gazbinski knocked the Irishman down with a big right hand opening up a cut.

Gazbinski then waved for his opponent to get back to his feet.

The second Murphy was back up Gazbinski rushed in with the same punch knocking him back down to the ground.

This time however Murphy sprung right back to his feet albeit a little wobbly.

Still recovering his senses, Murphy got the wind knocked out of him with a big punch to the stomach.

Bloody, winded, & wobbled, Murphy circled right into Gazbinski's power side eating a beautiful right hook & fell face first into the dirt.

 

Submission of the Night

 

41a7.jpg

 

United_States_of_America.png Armie "Lightning" Aiden (1-1)

Triangle / 1 minute 39 seconds

Aiden damn near earned "Knockout of the Night" when he scored a big head kick that sent his Afghan opponent tumbling into the dirt opening a huge gash.

Aiden decided to let him back up which later in the fight we discovered he was being kind.

It turns out Aiden is very well versed on the ground.

Aiden clinched, pulled guard, & secured a textbook triangle choke showing off his versatile skills.

#914848 Synchronicity's Face/Off - Official Smack Talk Thread

Posted by BuffMinion on 21 May 2020 - 04:58 AM

Another week in the books for our Synchronicity faithful.  This announcement is in regards to our weekly fighter write up.  Please show some love for Latka Gravas-

 

 

Latka Gravas, A Warrior of Good;

I've always found it interesting what will lead a man to live a life that constantly puts him in a cage fighting another human with his bare hands.  The thought of that to almost every human is absolutely terrifying.  But a faithful few make the walk, time after time...why?  Some love fame, others love the money, some are just truly violent people.  Oftentimes it is the family business, fighting is their family tradition.  For Latka it was none of the above.  No, he didn't fight because his uncle was a legend, or because he got picked on in math class.  Latka fought for liberty, he fought for freedom and he fought for his country.

 

Growing up in wartorn Kosovo, Latka learned early that everyone had to fight. If you were good at fighting you would live, and if you were not, then you would die.  Either way you had to fight.  Luckily for Latka and the now sovereign nation of Kosovo, Latka had gifts unmatched by any other human.  Stories of him devastating war-fields are written throughout the texts of Kosovo’s history.  Yes he is lethal with his hands, but some say he is even more lethal with weapons.  His confirmed kill count is in the thousands,  many speculate it could easily be 20,000 plus.

 

He left that life behind after Kosovo gained diplomatic recognition from the United Nations. He said he wanted to retire to the “simple life of martial arts' '.  See, where Latka is from hand to hand combat is equivalent to us playing touch football.  It is considered a fun but safe pastime. Now, he has been competing at the highest levels of MMA for years.  Many fans and journalists call his hands bombs, these comments always make Latka chuckle, as his hands have literally detonated bombs before.  His composure in firefights has translated to him having years of success in Synchronicity.  President Alex Maniatakos commented, “First off you love to have a guy like that on your roster.  As a fight organization president I’m very comfortable knowing I have a small army of brutes who have my back.  When a guy like Latka is one of those brutes, I feel like I could take on a country if needed.  We love him here at Synchronicity, his legacy speaks for itself.  I will be cageside this weekend to see him defend his belt!”. Latka Gravas is the current 170lb champion for Synchronicity and will be defending his belt this upcoming weekend against Polliisi Partio.  During his career, Latka has fought at middleweight, welterweight and recently won an epic fight at lightweight vs. Kagekatsu Uesugi when he fished him in the third round via a devastating TKO.  

 

Truly a master of combat, Latka considers cage fighting an amazing pastime and a great way to provide for his family.  He is grateful his days of fighting (war) are over. He says he is very happy that he can enjoy himself and loves the "casual" lifestyle a cage fighter lives. 

Like i said, it truly is interesting what type of life paths lead people to walking into a cage and attempting to bash someone for a living.  For Latka, it was the fact he has been fighting his whole life and wanted to find a nice peaceful job.

Your war is over Latka, enjoy the nice calm relaxing life of a professional cagefighter… 

 

From everyone at Synchronicity thank you for reading and as usual...FIGHT ON!

 

This was a fun read! :)

#914715 MMA Trading Card Game (ISO: Graphic Designer/Artist)

Posted by BuffMinion on 20 May 2020 - 10:53 AM

Over the course of roughly 2 years, I've slowly been working on a MMA Trading Card Game in my spare time. In that time, I believe I've developed a diverse system that showcases all facets of MMA in a balanced, engaging, & diverse way.

 

Just as a fan of both MMA & TCGs, I've looked into other MMA related card games on the market such as Uncaged, Deckfighters, MMA Federation, etc. I found them all extremely sub-par for many reasons but mainly due to the lack of depth, strategy, & customization when compared to the big, mainstream card games (magic, yugioh, etc).

 

That being said, I think i've finally been able to accurately capture the art form in an accurate, fun way. I've already had all the cards professionally printed with placeholder images. I then had the game play tested with friends, family, & people at my local hobby/game shops. All with varying levels of knowledge & familiarity of strategy card games & MMA. I've worked out all the "bugs", exploits, & mechanics for a variety of play styles to be enjoyable & viable.

 

I'm making this post because i'm ready to move forward with the next phase of making this game a reality: official card artwork.

 

As of right now, their are 231 cards i'm in need of images for. I'm looking not only just for graphic artists but ones that are interested & decently knowledgeable of MMA. My vision for the art style is an anime aesthetic a la Hajime no Ippo, Teppu, etc. However, I'm open to other ideas, concepts, & styles!

 

With each card i can give a brief description about the fighter (nationality, size, expression, real life inspiration), techniques (source images for the real technique), events, etc which leaves a decent amount of artistic freedom.

 

This is a really big passion project of mine, which if i'm being honest, I'm nervously excited about moving forward with.

 

I have & know of multiple platforms & channels to contact artists with but this is the first place publicly i'm reaching out through.

 

So if you're interested or know someone that would possibly be interested, PM me in game & we can talk further details.

#914620 Florida Fight Squad (16-19 Year Old Fighters Only)

Posted by BuffMinion on 19 May 2020 - 08:37 AM

Florida Fight Squad "Of the Night" Awards Recaps!

 

FFS 4: Belle Glade

 

Venue: Backyard

 

15865089541500x1000.jpg

 

Fight of the Night

 

16w4.jpg VS 1b7.jpg

 

Richard "Lad" Wartime (1-0) vs Metal Lee (0-1)

Winner: Richard "Lad" Wartime

KO (strikes) / 42 seconds

Lee feinted a leg kick which no garnered no reaction from Wartime.

Soon after, Wartime went in for the takedown.

After Lee attempted to sprawl, they landed in the grass up against the house.

Wartime smashed his opponent with elbows & punches from the half guard until Lee was unconcious.

The crowd loved this one!

 

The homeowner however did not...

"Ay man ya'll chippin' my paint all up & shit muthafuckas!!!"

 

Knockout of the Night

 

1b17.jpg

 

Darren Williams (2-0)

TKO (strikes) / 28 seconds

Darren wasted no time showing the out-of-shape South African who the stronger man was, clinching up with him, & slamming him up against the house.

Williams fired off a variety of punches in the clinch until unloading a massive uppercut causing De Swardt to fall to his knees.

De Swardt, already out of it, took a few more blows until the ref jumped in.

 

The home owner commented "Damn I didn't think y'all be fightin' on my house & shit, fuck".

 

Submission of the Night

 

15w20.jpg

 

Frankie "Lickety Split" Fellatio (2-0)

Armbar / 2 minutes 24 seconds

After avoiding several clinch attempts from Archer, Fellatio shot in with a beautiful double leg & ended up in half guard.

You would think that after a minute or two of grappling outside in the Florida heat would make most submissions a little tricky but Fellatio decided to go for a risky armbar from mount.

The risk paid off as he forced Archer to tap.

 

After the fight the home owner shouted to the crowd "YOOO he took mans down right where my dog go boo boo!"

This was confirmed after the fight as Archer could be seen getting his back hosed down & cleaned up by an elderly neighbor. Gross.

 

 

 

FFS 5: Palatka

 

Venue: Construction Site

 

158701698920200416_020244.jpg

 

 

Fight of the Night

 

23w22.jpg VS 38b18.jpg

 

Callum Neenan (1-0) vs Pierre Mvarre (3-1)

Winner: Callum Neenan

KO (punch) / 1 minute 8 seconds

Callum Neenan came into this fight a big underdog as his opponent, Pierre Mvarre, had won 3 straight by KO on the local circuit & in a actual MMA organiziation.

Neenan, who was making his debut, showed no concern about his opponent's experience as they faced off.

Neenan completely outclassed the Nigerian in the boxing exchanges showing off his crisp, accurate technique.

Moments after knocking Mvarre down with an uppercut, Neenan finished the job with a big straight right hand ending Mvarre's unbeaten streak.

 

Word is Mvarre fell on a rusty nail & had to be treated for tetanus. Not good not good at all.

 

Knockout of the Night

 

15853680833425.jpg

 

Sturn Slugger (1-0)

KO (punch) / 17 seconds

When Sturn Slugger made his way through the crowd & squared off with Arkadiusz Burdon, everyone couldn't help but laugh.

Several audience members loudly ridiculed him with one man shouting "Who is this Mortal Kombat lookin' muthafucka *HAHAHA*"

17 seconds later, nobody was laughing...

After feeling each other out with a couple strikes, Slugger cracked Burdon with a big right hand knocking him down into the clay.

Bleeding & on wobbly legs, Burdon was beckoned back to his feet by Slugger.

Credit to Burdon as it didn't deter him from still throwing punches & attempting to fight back.

Unfortunately for Burdon he ducked a jab & got nailed with an uppercut straight from the Netherrealm.

If Burdon didn't get knocked out by the punch he certainly would have been from hitting his head on a cement mixer on the way down. Ouch.

No backgrounds checks. Age is based on your word. Real Cuban style!

#907415 Teenage Fight Org?

Posted by BuffMinion on 06 March 2020 - 06:02 AM

Definitely a cool concept, might be kind of hard to build hype with fighters only being eligible for the org for about 6 months. Plus, since most top managers prefer an average of 3 months or so before they fight, on top of wanting about 30 days between fights, seems like a lot of guys would only get 1-2 fights before theyre 20. Mentor had a good idea, would be a good feeder org. Along with what Barney said, CWC has been groovy so id definitely sign a guy or two

 

Not really super concerned about building hype or being an associated feeder org.

 

My plan is as follows:

-Low contracts (2 fights / 1k/1k/1k)

-Not having any champions (so no stripping the champ hype loss)

-Booking only at the 400-750 capacity arenas to minimize costs (though I assume i'll always be spending my own money for the duration that the org exists)

-Once a fighter turns 20, they'll be free to go wherever they please

 

I just wanted to do something a little different from the norm just for fun. Hopefully if my plan comes together, it'll be a consistent starting/low tier org that people will be familiar with much like when you think of high tier you think of GAMMA, PULSE, CEC (RIP), ICS, & SYN.

 

Thank you everyone for the feedback & interest, look forward to it somewhere in the near future! :)

16yo creations would have huuge advantage over 18yo creations

 

Yeah but as long as you pair them up properly it shouldn't be an issue & worse case it just get's declined with no harm done.
