Spin & Win live event inside our studio in Amsterdam

 

MMA Hype decided to play around with the new MMA Tycoon addiction, Spin & Win. In our studio in Amsterdam, Brett and Jared invited a few managers and business owners to try it out, just to see how well they react to the wins and losses.

 

Spin & Win is a game where you can only win, so basically, Mike Tycoon found a way to addict everyone even more to the game, and we thank him for that!

 

Let’s go live with Brett and Jared, along with our last 2 contestants for the night.

 

-- -- --

 

Brett Clarke: Welcome to MMA Hype’s Amsterdam studio, we are live, in front of something I like to call “Tycooners’ new addiction machine”. Oh yes, you know what I’m talking about, it’s the Spin & Win slot machine!

 

Jared Asante: I have to admit, I sure am glad I’m not a manager and that I’m not allowed to use this machine, because I would go crazy about it.

 

Brett: You don’t need the machine to be crazy Jared, trust me. We have a few managers and business owners with us tonight, who brought their credits for two spins, and they will spin for a chance to win big!

 

Jared: Let’s go right ahead with our first contestant!

 

Jared: We have Roger Kint with us, the owner of Kaiser Fightwear, and leader of the Amsterdam Alliance, Evolution Fightwear. Mr. Kint, before you spin, is there anything you would like to say to the audience or to the viewers watching right now?

 

Roger Kint: Show me the money, Jarred, shooow me the moooney... WOOHOOO!!! I also would like to add: buy KAISER and get all the girls and the dubs, you fine people here in the attendence and sitting at home, eating microwave maccaroni and cheese!

 

Jared: Here goes the first spin of the night! Wow, I feel like I’m hosting “Wheel of fortune” right now, this is so exciting!

First slot stops on Lottery Tickets, second on Lottery Tickets, third on Cash. Aw, nothing for your first spin Mr. Kint. Spin it again!

 

Roger Kint: Not good, Mr. Woolery, not good... i'm a simple man, i like my girls brunette, my binary cagefights bloody and my beer german, but good lord, i prefer my anticaptcha non-existing. See this grey hair here on the left side? Anticaptcha! I hear you laughing at me, Mike Tycoon, at the fireplace, swiveling some old and expensive cognac - which certainly both was financed by my project fighter research addiction.... *shakes his fist*

 

Jared: Now the first slot 1 and 3 stopped on Super Quality Supplements, while the second slot is still active. It just stopped, on the Super Quality Supplement!! Congratulations to Roger Kint, who just won 2x Super Quality Supplements! How do you feel about that?

 

Roger Kint: The fraud 170s? I feel awesome, Mr. Sajak, JUST... AWESOME!!! It's like the warm feeling in the tummy on christmas morning when you unwrap your present and this lovely knit jersey pops out... you know... with the elks... and stuff.

 

Jared: And how is your experience in general with Spin & Win?

 

Roger Kint: It's a wonderful addiction, Mr. Hasselhoff, just wonderful... but let me express and summarize my experience with just two words - lottery tickets. They better get me that goddamn million, i swear, this is gonna be ugly at some point! And now excuse me, i have to make some quadruple posts in Tycoon forum that even will make the original "Spin Doctor" Chris Garcia look like an amateur!

 

 

Brett Clarke: What a character that Roger Kint! Now on to our last contestant, Scooby Jr!

Scooby owner of BEEF in Montreal, came to visit us all the way from New York, let’s hope he wins at least a little cash to pay for his flight!

Hello Scooby, anything you want to say to the audience and viewers at home before your first spin?

 

Scooby Jr: Of course I hope MMA Hype is just the rabbits foot I need to help me win something big here, im sure whatever it is will get recycled into BEEF which is in turn my satisfaction.

 

Brett: Alright, with that said, let’s go with the first spin!

First slot stops on Cash, second on Lottety Tickets, and the third one.. on a Jet. Wow, not even close! How does it feel to be so far off?

 

Scooby Jr: Ah man I couldnt even get my hopes up, whenever a jet shows its face here I get glossy eyed. No worries, I guess il take another whack at it...

 

Brett: Another spin for you, let’s hope it’s going to be a better one this time!

First slot stops on Free Agent, second stops on Free Agent! Looking good! Third one stops on… oooh, stops on Lottery Tickets. No luck this time either. Nothing for you. How does that feel?

 

Scooby Jr: Hahaha that sucks even more! Mystery Machine Fight Team is always looking for worthy free agents and the idea of having the ability to choose the one who fits our mold the best is fascinating, I cant wait to get that opportunity.

 

Brett: And how is your experience so far with Spin & Win? Do you like it? Did you win interesting stuff?

 

Scooby Jr: Its been excellent so far, I havent really won much aside from lottery tickets and a couple thousand dollars recently but im confident my lucky day will come soon and just having the opportunity to win so frequently is a pleasure I will enjoy.

 

Please note that no managers were harmed and the prizes won, were only fictional. This was only a dramatization. No prizes were given away, and Spin & Win was not really in our studio. It was a reproduction of the slot machine.

 

Hope you liked this edition of MMA Hype!

If you would like an interview with one of your fighter, or yourself as a manager, send me a message and we can work something out. As long as we can make something interesting out of it!

Ascension: Europa opens in St Petes, Brett meets with owners Jax and Meat


Tonight on MMA Hype, Brett Clarke went over to St Petersburg, to visit owners of newly formed organization, Ascension: Europa, in their new offices still under construction.


Here is Brett with co-owner Matthew "Jax” Rostenkowski.


Brett Clarke: Hey there Jax, the new office is starting to look good, how are you today?


Jax Rostenkowski: The office is great, I have my big comfy chair, great view from the window and the secretary is one hot momma. So, yeah I am good.


Brett: It looks like Ascension is expanding and everything is going well for them. What exactly will Ascension: Europa represent towards Ascension? Will it be a feeder for the bigger league?


Jax: Hell no. We aren't no feeder org. We're a European partner. Fighters are located all over the world, up and coming fighters, world class fighters. We want them all. Some fighters don't like to travel too much, so we're another solution for these type of fighters as well as offering what the industry calls "super fights" between cities. We will make this happen with numerous luxarious private jets for the fighters, top match ups that the fans want to see and of course, brilliant pay.


Brett: You, along with Meat, will be owners of the expansion. Are you guys going to be both equally involved?


Jax: Yes, Meat will be with me 100%. We don't make any decisions without speaking to each other first. We also hired Sam for another pair of hands to help out.  


Brett: Who’s idea was it to expand over to Europe, and why St Petersburg exactly?


Jax: Talks had been around for a little while between myself and Scott before we decided to set up shop. We choose St. Petes because I don't think they have a truly world class org based in the city. It hasn't been the same since Blitzrieg Russian Combat decided to close. I enjoy working from Europe too, so it was a no brainer really.


-- -- --

(Meat steps inside Jax’s office.)

-- -- --


Brett: Oh hello there Meat, I guess you’re done with the medias?


Meat850 Lee: Yes Sir just finished up.


Brett: I was having a chat with Jax about the organization, we’re pretty much done here, so I can head to your office to get your side of the story. Thanks for you time Jax, I’ll let you finish whatever you were doing.


-- -- --

(Meat enters his office and sits down at his desk. Brett takes a seat in front of him.)

-- -- --


Brett: So, how’s the new St Petes office treating you?


Meat: This is just the beginning of things to come. I still have a ton of boxes to unpack but outside of that the office is perfect.


Brett: Jax told me about the orientation of the organization, that it should be as big as Ascension, and that you hired a certain Sam Redovian to help out. How’s the contract signing process going?


Meat: The contract process is the slowest process of them all. With us being a newly established org, guys are hesitant to come in with us having no prior history of running a org together. But patience is the key, and in time I believe we will have a stacked roster.


Brett: What’s the relationship between you, Jax and Sam? Have you dealt with each other in the past?


Meat: We actually all came from CBK together and before that i had sort of mentored Sam, and Jax and I are best of buds and assure to agree on something before we make a official decision.


Brett: Back to Ascension: Europa, I’m sure it will take time to build a decent roster. When will the first event be, and do you plan on having events twice a week, or keep a roster to accommodate events once a week?


Meat: Our first event is already confirmed for the 28th of December and as far as the consistency of the rate we hold events at is sort of an unknown at this point. We are still in process of promoting ourselves and selling our brand.


Brett: Will you guys be working directly with the Ascension staff?


Meat:  We won't be working directly with them but we will keep in touch and discuss plenty of business matters in the future. But as far as events and contracts go, thats all our doings.


Brett: I know that with jets nowadays, it’s easier to manage businesses all around the globe. You have a gym in Las Vegas, and you currently reside in Montreal. With the expansion over here in St Petes, do you find it hard at times to move around?


Meat:  In this line of business you can't be thinking about what could hold you back, you can only think about what moves you forward.

Brett: Well, it pretty much sums it up. I don’t have any more boring questions, so I’ll leave you with this. Looking forward to see Ascension: Europe rise to the top!

New org in Tokyo, Jared meets the owner Floris Maljers of Flocorp Fight Club

 

Tonight on MMA Hype, Jared Asante receives owner of the night organization, Flocorp Fight Club in Tokyo, Floris Maljers.

 

After a little over 2 weeks, the org already has over 150 fighters signed, and the first event is already in the books. It’s one of the fastest start for a fight organization in MMA Tycoon, and we’re looking forward to see it rise to the top!

 

Here is Jared with the owner, Floris Maljers.

 

-- -- --

 

Jared Asante: Hi there Floris, it’s a pleasure to have you with us in our studio, how are you doing today?

 

Floris Maljers: Hi Jared it's a pleasure to be here, though I am a bit nervous for my first actual live interview.

 

Jared: First of all, congratulations for the great job you’ve been doing with the org since it’s creation. A little over 2 weeks in, and you already signed over 150 fighters. How hard a job was it to get the attention of all those fighters?

 

Floris: Thanks mate. Well it wasn't that difficult mate, just making sure you sleep no more than 5/6 hours per night and right after you wake up start contacting all new managers around the globe. Sending them a warm welcome message and requesting them to find a new tokyo talent which i would be happy to sign.

 

Jared: You’ve been working closely with Skap Omdahl, the Technical Director for Flocorp FC. Have you guys known each other before?

 

Floris: I've known Skappy for just under a week before we decided to go in business together. We were and are both wet behind the ears but with the combination of our energy and dynamics we make an excellent team.

 

Jared: Tokyo has a lot of history with MMA, and it’s a great place to run an organization. Was Tokyo your definite choice when you started, or did you look around to see what was the best location for new fighters?

 

Floris: Tokyo was one of the three options I considered starting my business. Hawaii and London were the other two. London because that was where my gym was at the time I found out it was my calling to start a fight club for new players. There were a lot of companies who were recruiting promising talent which was why this place was the first one i scrapped.

 

The Hilo climate is very appealing, but thinking of the heat there and me working 18-20 hours a day made me reconsider that place too, especially when I discovered there weren't many clubs that were actively recruiting new talent.

 

Another reason for Tokyo is that its advanced technology allowed us to setup a much better and easier network

 

Jared: Your first event was a success. Are you happy with the outcome, and did you have different expectations with the way it went?

 

Floris:My first event was great despite of several mistakes I made there, over advertising, booking a club thats oversize and several more like that. My expectations of the fights were more than met, but I did expect to fill all the seats which as you probably noticed weren't even half filled.

 

Jared: You seem to have a low roster of Openweight fighters, which is not a surprise since most fighters want to fight in a specified weight class. Do you have any intentions with the openweight, or will you just keep recruiting until the roster becomes more stable?

 

Floris: My openweight class is one that's hardly coming off the ground so far. If I don't manage to sign at least 12 fighters by the end of the month I'll definitely consider a change there. I've always dreamt of an openweight KT roster and will pursue that in case openweight remains difficult to fill out

 

Jared: We were talking earlier, me and the MMA Hype crew, and we have a little something for you. MMA Hype will be giving the amount of $50,000 to Flocorp, to help with the contracts and events. How does that sound?

 

Floris: That would be awesome Jared, this means I'll be able to sign 15-20 fighters that are eager to make their debut at the FNPFC. On behalf of them, and of course myself, I thank you and your crew.

 

Jared: Well, it’s all the questions I had for you. Is there anything you would like to add, to the fans, or any fighters and managers around the world?

 

Floris: Yes I would, First I'd like to thank all the managers and fighters who have joined my brand new club for having the faith in me to help their careers. Secondly I'd like to ask the managers around the world who signed talented fighters in  Tokyo to check out my organisation and contact me if they are interested in signing their talent to my organisation and last but definitely not least a massive thanks to my TD Skap "Skappy" Omdahl and my mentor Dark Soul who helped me out in the turbulent first weeks of my career.

Thanks Jared, It was a great talking to you.

 

Hope you liked this edition of MMA Hype!

If you would like an interview with one of your fighter, or yourself as a manager, send me a message and we can work something out. As long as we can make something interesting out of it!

Brett Clarke tests the new MMA Hype Jet, goes to Hilo to meet with owner of Fallen Champions

 

Tonight on MMA Hype, Brett Clarke traveled to Hilo, Hawaii, to meet with owner of the fight organization Fallen Champions, Jonah King.

 

Fallen Champions has been around for almost a year, they have grown into something big, and should become even bigger in 2014 if they keep going that way. Hilo is a great place to fight, not only for the weather, but for the history of MMA Tycoon.

 

As soon as the plane landed in Hilo, Brett was already full of energy, since he’s a sucker for great weather. Here he is, with Jonah King.

 

-- -- --

 

Brett Clarke: Hello guys, I’m here today inside Jonah King’s office, to talk his organization, Fallen Champions.

Weather is freaking great here, how are you today Jonah?

 

Jonah King: I'm great Brett, and indeed the weather is great here. My family is from back in the states and right now they are covered in ice and snow so I'm pretty happy with 70 degrees and the sun shining.

 

Brett: When you first started the org, was Hilo the first choice of location, or did you have different thoughts back then?

 

Jonah: Actually it was Brett, Hilo is rich with tycoon heritage. I mean when I first started playing back in late 2009 early 2010 you had some of the games greats based in Hilo, like Blitz, Reach, EFC, Ring of Fire, Hilowars, and Cage Wars. It seems like as of late that glory has passed, but I want to try to put HIlo back on everybodies map.

 

Brett: The org’s been around for quite a while, and the fighters seem to love it there, just by looking at the satisfaction rating or 98%. What do you think makes the org so loveable?

 

Jonah: Not to toot my own horn Brett, but I think its the management. I go out of my way to try to make everybodies experience at Fallen Champions the best that it can be, and I have a passion for the game that I think that shows through with how I handle the business. I think that the managers can see that and most of them can relate to it, plus I have heard that the pay isn't too bad either. Haha

 

Brett: With Mr Crisse as the VIP of Operations, it must help a lot. Have you dealt with him before and outside of the org, and how long has he been involved with Fallen Champions?

 

Jonah: Well its actually funny that you ask that, as that just recently happened. Mr Crisse is a hell of a guy, and he has experience working with some top orgs in the game so I think that his knowledge will be a great asset to me. Due to time restraints though it will be some time before Crisse actually gets involved with the day to day operations, but I are just glad to have him as a member of the team. I would like to give a shout out to Meat850 Lee, who has been a great help to me, he goes out of his way to lend his guidance and knowledge of org running.

 

Brett: Around 3 months after the first event of the org, you decided to split into 2 different type of events. You now have the regular Fallen Champions, along with Lost Legends. What is the difference between the two of them exactly?

 

Jonah: Well I actually did that to help bring fighters in, as each event added something a little different to appeal to the different genres of managers. I mean it wasn't easy getting good managers to bring their fighters to Hilo, so I had to offer them something different. I played around a lot with the number of rounds and time, but now it seems like everybody just likes the tradition 3 5 minute rounds so thats what way we are heading now. As of right now the only real difference is the Lost Legends events are held in a cage and the Fallen Champions take plus in the trademark FC ring.

 

Brett: The org’s events are a different setup than most typical orgs, by that I mean, all fights are inside a ring, and the judging system is 2x10 minutes rounds. Has it always been that way, and is there a reason you went with that setup?

 

Jonah: I actually set up the events like that because of our Medieval theme, I mean back in those days they just fought until one man couldn't go any longer and if you look at our event history there wasn't a whole lot of decision. We are actually converting over to just the tradition 3 5 minute rounds now, and the reason for that is the 10 minute rounds just takes too much out of the fighters. I mean they are usually wore out before the end of the first round, and usually when you get two wore out fighters it makes for a pretty boring fight for the fans. Also it can result in injuries and a bigger loss of training time, so I just felt like it was the best direction to go in not only for the fans but the fighters

 

Brett: You have a nice roster of up and coming stars. Some of them are surely the future of the sport, and may have to part ways to move on the bigger things soon. I’m sure you’ve dealt with this in the past. Is it hard to see someone like that go, or is it more an accomplishment on your side?

 

Jonah: Well that is a kinda ironic Brett, as my first big let down was when we were still young and I signed Petro Farantini's Kickboxing beast Tarik Gibson, he fought for me 3 times and I just didn't have the competition to match him so he moved on. Well 7 months has went by and Tarik has actually came back to fight for us, which I think is a great tribute to how far we have come in the last 6 months or so. Other than that I haven't really had to deal too much with people leaving, I mean I know its going to happen but I'm trying to do everything that I can to slow down the process. I'm constantly bigger in new talent to all the division, and if I noticed that one division is getting pretty slim then I try to stay on top of it before it becomes too big of problem.

 

Brett: Fallen Champions sure is a great org, and I’m sure it will grow out to be bigger than what it already is right now. Must be really easy to get fighters to sign in Hilo, even myself, I think I’ll stay over here for a few days just to cool off and get a little sun.

I won’t take anymore of your time, so is there anything you’d like to add before I go?

 

Jonah: We have been nominated for New Org of the Year, and it will be an honor if we could bring home such a prestigious award. We have came a long way since we opened the doors in January, and I hope that 2014 will be an even bigger year for us as we are going to be moving into the Pipeline Arena at the end of the year, we just signed a new partnership with TFP-Graphics, and the addition of Mr Crisse things are already looking pretty good . I have to say though I would be no where if it wasn't for all the fighters and their great managers, this group of guys are some of the best in the tycoon world. Thanks for coming all the way here to talk with me Brett, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your visit. If you want I can have my secretary email you a list of some hot spots around town?

 

Brett: I was just about to beg for that haha. Here is my email, I’m going to stick for a couple days for sure, weather forecast is looking really good so I’ll enjoy the time here until my boss brings me back to Amsterdam.

Have a good one!
