  1. Middleweight Playoff's round 1 result's and round 2 preview (Part 1) Middleweight had an epic first round Saturday Evening at the Hayashi's Lounge Arena. Although there weren't too many big upsets there was some fun fights, and a lot of Statements were made. Round two for the 185ers will still only be the Quarter Finals so quite a way to go. Now let's take a look at the winners from the 16-fighter field and a sneak peek at the Round 2 matchups that are scheduled for an awesome 4/20 weekend! #1 Jake Walton vs #16 Declan McCoy To say Jake Walton dominated the League phase of MILF is quit the understatement as he finished each of his 4 fights with first round finishes earning the perfect score of 24. He did have a couple hiccups in his career though from his debut TKO loss to the phenomenal Wu Hu (Who only has that 1 win to his career) to his big fight between the top dogs at Middleweight at the time in Lawson Serrano. Declan McCoy finished the league 2-2 but his losses were against two of the better Middleweights this Island season in Scott Potter and Lawson Serrano. McCoy just made the field and got the unfortunate task of fighting the #1 seed and yet another one of the Big 3 in the Division. As the Bell rings McCoy, a Muay Thai Specialist took the BJJ Brown Blet Walton to the clinch immediately. On paper this may have been a bad move as I'm sure Walton had no problem heading there but the Irishman was doing very well in the clinch. For the first couple minutes at least, as he peppered Walton with Head and Body punches. Declan opened up a cut on the Brits face early on and managed to stuff 4 straight guard pulls and looked in full control. Only the rabbit hole finally opened for Jake just before the 2-minute mark as he dragged McCoy to his wild and wacky world. Jake was working a few submissions from the bottom position of his guard failing to lock one in proper. But as we hit the 2:30 mark Walton to cinch in a Triangle choke but McCoy manages to escape and keep himself out of range of it. Only this also set up Waltons next move in this game of chess, which was a perfectly timed Guillotine choke that Jake applied forcing the tap at the 2:43 mark of round 1. #8 Alien Invasion vs #9 Osvaldo Leandro Alien Invasion only had three fights in the MILF league but took a perfect 3-0 record which earned him a nice 8 spot in the playoff rounds. He managed to pick up finishes in his first two fights and had an awesome "FOTN" Victory in his final League fight. On the other side of things Osvaldo Leandro from Brazil put together a nice 3-1 record with two finishes of his own. His sole loss was to Scott Potter so no big shame there either. This bout opens with The Brazilian pushing the pace with punches and kicks landed at will against the Wrestler in Invasion. Just prior to the 1-minute mark Alien gets his first Takedown attempt in and it's a success as he takes the Muay Thai specialist to the mat. Invasion finishes out the next 3 minutes with relentless Ground and Pound strikes only not much power behind them as he earns a dominant first round nod. Rounds two and three were pretty similar only Invasion locked in his Takedowns early and we also saw both fighters drained out quickly which enabled Leandro to stuff a few of his opposition's takedowns. Leandro on the other hand was fully drained by the end of the fight the takedowns that AI did land just took the life out of the striker and there were no big surprises when the scorecards were read. All three judges scored it 30-27 in favor of the winner Alien Invasion. Quarter Finals Matchup #1 Jake Walton vs #8 Alien Invasion Well, are first Quarter final matchup pits a pure grappler in Invasion against the top dog who has shown to do well in both grappling and Standup at times a master of the MMA craft if you will. Jake seems to be developing his skills very well, but he did struggle his last fight against a top-notch wrestler in Serrano. As for Invasion he hasn't quite fought the level of opponent s in the caliber of Walton, so this one is a very tough one to call. #4 Scott Potter vs #13 Romeo Alfa Scott Potter established himself as the head honcho of the Stacked Middleweight division early with big wins over Serrano, McCoy, and Leandro. He then had his first and only curveball thrown at him in his showdown with#1 seed Walton. Potter bounced back nicely just prior to the Seedings came out as he beat a game David Snake in a bit of a sneak pit Super Fight as he went up to LHW for 1 fight. Romeo Alfa's MILF league started off horrible as he dropped his first two fights. The "Trooper" in Mr. Alfa then shined his pretty lil face as he snagged back-to-back first round Submission victories to clinch his spot in the Playoff. This fight was quite the pleasant surprise as Romeo who surely was the better grappler must have forgotten what got him here and abandon the ground game so he can have himself a slugfest with probably the best KO Artist in the division. Realistically it may have been his best option though as Potter is known for his Clinch work and to get this fight to the mat Alfa typically uses his clinch to get the fight to the ground. Alfa found himself in an uphill battle as he prayed heavily on his High Kick abilities while potter simply pieced him up with a nice combo of head and body punches. The fight ended with very over played moment were Romeo decided to take a peek at the time clock and Mr. Potter took full advantage unloading a right hand that turned his lights off instantly. #5 Danilo Zoric vs #12 Jimar Kinkead Danillo Zoric paved himself a bloody trail through his MILF league going 3-1 overall. His three wins were all first round finishes giving him 18 points to clinch the #5 seed. Meanwhile Jimar Kinkead broke out as an early favorite with two very impressive first round victories. Grenadian Grappler then went on to struggle in his next two fights ending with a 2-2 record. Kinkead's final fight in the League competition was known other than Zoric who handed him a first round TKO loss that night. So, the rematch was set as the "Right Hand from Hell" Danilo Zoric looked to duplicate his previous performance. Kinkead shot for a takedown right out the gate and the Serbian born fighter quickly shoves it off and begins showcasing his superior striking skills drawing blood instantly. Jimar would go on to miss 4 more takedown attempts as hid desperately looked to get the fight to his world. Zoric would go on to switch up his Strikes using half his punches on the counter but was focusing on the headshots. The final blow would come 1:07 in round one with and equally impressive Left hand from Hell that drops Jimar. Zoric would drop a few more bombs before the ref steps in, to halt the bout. Quarter Final Fight #4 Scott Potter vs #5 Danilo Zoric This is the kind of the fight the fans have been waiting for as the Londoner Scott Potter well known for his Clinch Striking faces off with a pure striker from Serbia in Danilo Zoric. Both are 6-1 and both have finished all there wins via (T)KO. This one May make it two the 2nd round, but I just don't see it going to a third and surely not a decision. I would give this one a 55/45 for who wins with a slight edge for Potter. A potential "KOTN" is at about 90% though fo SHO! Yes, there is more which I will be here tomorrow to finish up this Middleweight Playoff Bracket! Stay tuned MILF fans

  3. Saturday, we concluded our first rounds of the Bantamweight and Featherweight classes and now have the round 2 matchups booked. Below are the results for that event from Yesterday and a preview of the round 2 Semi Finals matchups. Bantamweight Playoff round 1 results (Continued) #2 Giancarlo Zuniga vs #7 Eja Igwe Suriname native Giancarlo Zuniga earned himself the #2 seed with his stellar run in the League going 3-1 overall. He made quick work of each of his opponents he beat as well, ending the fights with 1rst round Submission victories. The Nigerian Eja Igwe on the other hand found himself in a dire spot, dropping his first two fights as he noticed his chances of making the playoff looking grim. However, he took out his next two opponents with first round TKO wins earning himself 12 points and clinching his playoff spot. This fight was not much different from either of the two's previous bouts as Zuniga looked to instigate the clinch and get the fight to the mat at all costs, Igwe would look to break out of that clinch and keep his distance. Igwe did his best to avoid the clinch for long periods but eventually the relentless pace of Zuniga enabled the Guard pull, and once he got the Nigerian down it was just a matter of seconds before Igwe was tapping out from a Triangle. Semi Finals Matchup #2 Giancarlo Zuniga vs #6 Pope Callixtus This matchup will no doubt go to the ground, one would think. Zuniga may have the edge in the BJJ but Pope has shown with his most recent fight he has learned to avoid the threat of submissions. Pope does seem to have a slight edge in the Boxing Cat too, so this could very well work to his advantage if he can shut down the ground game enough to keep the fight standing. #4 Jorge Baroza vs #5 Swinzey Mckinney Jorge calls Lima, Peru his home and has proven to be one of the better strikers in the Bantamweight class. Jorge advanced to the Playoff with a 3-1 record and earned himself two first round TKO finishes in the process. McKinney was also a striker-based fighter with wonderful boxing, and he looked very good out the gate winning his first three fights. Swinzey finished his league fights with a respectable 3-1 record and 1 first round TKO finish. The fight between these two strikers was pretty competitive as McKinney the Boxer tried to utilize his fist against the more traditional Muay Tai fighter in Baroza who mixed his punches and kicks. Baroza opened up Swinzey before the minute mark of the first round with a perfectly timed High Kick. This may have very well played a big factor in the rest of the fight. Swinzey failed to keep the fight in the clinch as Baroza had no problems breaking free time after time. Round two saw Jorge rock Swinzey early and eventually finish him off with a vicious Hook at the 2:40 mark. Semi Finals Matchup #1 Landin Durham vs #4 Jorge Baroza This fight is quite possibly the best Grappler vs the best Striker at 135 going head-to-head. Got to give a slight edge to Durham here based off his pure dominance up to this date. This is however a fresh matchup for both fighters and though Durham has yet to have his chin really put in jeopardy the question is will this Peruvian striker be the one? Or will it just be another day in the office for Mr Durham? Featherweight Round 1 Results (Continued) #4 Maciej Galecki vs #5 Josh Jordan Polish submission specialist Maciej Galecki spilt his league fights going 2-2 but managed to capitalize on his points, ending with 11 points total to capture the #4 seed. The American Boxer Josh Jordan also went 2-2 and finished just behind Galecki with 10 points. This was arguably the most dominant 3 round fight of the Playoffs so far, most definitely at 145. Galecki really struggled in every aspect going 0 for 19 on his strikes and only getting 2 of his 12 Takedown Attempts. Maciej did however go 50/50 on clinch attempts only Jordan had no problem getting himself out of the clinch when he was put there. As for Josh he did enough with his Punches to win each and every round in route to a dominant Unanimous Decision verdict and advancing to round 2. Semi Finals Matchup #1 Dragon Kingdad vs #5 Josh Jordan In the first Featherweight semi final we will see two rapidly improving Strikers. The #1 seed Kingdad mixes his strikes with Kicks and Punches, while the #5 seed is mostly known for his Boxing and Punches. Dragon Kingdad was taking out of the first round only once and that was his most recent fight so I expect him to continue his aggressive style here while Jordan may try to be a counter threat here or even keep the fight in the clinch to wear down his opponent's attack. #2 Malcolm Young vs #7 Freaky Trevor Malcolm Young was very impressive throughout the League process going a perfect 4-0. After winning his first two fights by decision he started to find his grove in striking winning back-to-back bouts via TKO. BJJ Brown belt Freaky Trevor on the other hand had mixed results going 2-2. He came up with his best result though when he needed it gaining 5 points in his final League fight, winning via 2nd round Submission. This was a breakout performance for Malcolm Young in this one, who had Freaky Trevor in all sorts of trouble from start to Finish. Props to Freaky for sticking it out, his heart was proven in this fight as he found himself on the wrong side of 5 knockdowns but managed to clear the cobwebs each time. Late in round three though a visibly tired Trevor got put to rest with a counter over hand right with just two minutes remaining in the fight. Semi Finals Matchup #2 Malcolm Young vs #3 Ross Morrow The Rowdy Scotsman, Young is now 6-1 as a pro only dropping his debut QFC fight to Dragon Kingdad. He will now rematch The English brawler Ross Morrow. Their first fight was indeed a brawl that the Scot won with just 6 seconds left on the clock in round 1. Ross will need to make some big changes if he wants to avenge this loss, his aggressive style did not suit him very well. Young has a very good chin, but it has been cracked by Kingdad and if he wants to get that fight back, he will first need to put away Ross one more time. More to Come as I will recap The Welterweight, Middleweight and Heavyweight Playoffs for round 1!

  5. **Retiring with a Bang: The Legacy of Jerry "The Officer" Short (379233)** In the electrifying world of mixed martial arts, few figures stand out like Jerry "The Officer" Short. Hailing from the streets of Chicago, Illinois, Jerry's journey from a fearless police officer to a renowned fighter has been nothing short of legendary. Standing at a compact 151 cm and weighing in at 135 lbs, Jerry may not have had the physical stature of a typical fighter, but what he lacked in size, he more than made up for in heart, determination, and an unparalleled grappling prowess. From an early age, Jerry exhibited a natural talent for wrestling and grappling. His childhood days were spent honing his skills on the mats, laying the foundation for what would become a formidable career in the cage. At the age of 25, he took the plunge into the world of professional mixed martial arts, marking the beginning of an exhilarating journey filled with triumphs, setbacks, and everything in between. Throughout his career, Jerry showcased exceptional skills on the ground, earning himself a prestigious red belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. His grappling wizardry became the stuff of legend, as he executed seamless submissions with precision and finesse. With a record of 22 wins, 17 losses, and 0 draws, Jerry's fights were always a spectacle, whether he emerged victorious or faced defeat. Crazy wins and lightning-fast submissions became Jerry's trademark, earning him a reputation as one of the most unpredictable fighters in the game. From stunning victories over opponents like Robbie Hall and Maro Pjetlic to jaw-dropping submissions that left audiences in awe, Jerry's unorthodox style kept fans on the edge of their seats. However, Jerry's journey was also marked by swift and unexpected losses, reminding everyone of the unpredictable nature of the sport. Despite his undeniable talent and ferocious determination, he experienced defeats at the hands of adversaries like Leandro Narloch and Antonio Tarver, each loss serving as a humbling reminder of the unforgiving realities of professional fighting. But perhaps what truly set Jerry apart was not just his skills inside the cage, but his larger-than-life personality outside of it. Known for his unapologetic trash talk and irreverent antics, Jerry was as entertaining as he was formidable. Whether he was hyping up his next fight or engaging in colorful banter with fellow fighters, Jerry always kept fans on the edge of their seats. And then there were the anecdotes that became part of Jerry's legend. One such story involved his insatiable love for donuts. It was rumored that just an hour before one of his fights, Jerry devoured an astonishing 15 donuts, much to the shock and amusement of his teammates and fans alike. It was just one example of Jerry's larger-than-life persona and his ability to keep things interesting both inside and outside the cage. As his career drew to a close, Jerry bid farewell to the sport with characteristic flair. In a series of candid social media posts, he expressed gratitude to his fans, sponsors, and the entire MMA community. With a mix of humor and humility, he reflected on his journey, acknowledging both the highs and lows that had defined his career. In his final announcement, Jerry declared his retirement from professional fighting, signifying the end of an era. As he hung up his gloves for the last time, he left behind a legacy that will be remembered for years to come. Though his days inside the cage may be over, Jerry "The Officer" Short will forever remain a larger-than-life figure in the annals of mixed martial arts history. And as he embarks on the next chapter of his life, one thing is certain: the legend of Jerry Short will live on, inspiring future generations of fighters to chase their dreams with unwavering passion and determination.

  6. Tournaments are a way to increase activity in this game. We’ve all experienced a tournament go off the rails when either the Organizer or Participants go inactive. Not sure how to handle it if the Org Owner disappears, but in the case of participants, are we able to add a failsafe where there is an auto-accept for fights? Pros: - fighters/managers who are still invested in the experience continue to enjoy themselves. Cons: - none that I can think of.

  7. Middleweight Playoff Bracket and Preview The Final piece of the Playoff Puzzle is the bread and the butta of the MILF promotion. I have said it since day 1 this division is stacked and highly competitive. Definitely not taking anything away from other divisions or the other fighters especially but 185 is loaded with MADNESS if you will. Lets look at the field of 16 that will be slimmed down to 8 after Saturday's event. MILF Middleweight Fightoff - Challonge #1 Seed Jake Walton will collide with UK rivaly the brash Irishman Declan McCoy who finds himself to play the Darkhorse role comming in at the final seed of 16. #8 seed vs #9 seed will pit two guys who were obviosly switched at birth as for Alien Invasion well this may explaing his odd name. He will meet his long lost twin Brazilian Osvaldo Leandro. Another one of our English lads #4 seed Scott Potter will face the Italian born Romeo Alfa. #5 Seed Danilo Zoric of Serbia, finds himself in a rematch with the Grenadian Jimar Kinkhead.

  8. Heavyweight Playoffs round 1 results #1 Janne Virtanen vs #8 Frane Vinkovic Janne Virtanen stormed through his League fights with an impressive 3-1 record. The native of Espoo, Finland took full advantage of all of his victories earning himself 18 points via three first round (T)KO's including his debut win over #2 seed Aleki Veainu. Frane Vinkovic went 2-2 in his league fights but much like his opponent he put the nail in his victims coffins with round 1 finishes. This fight opened with both men swinging wildly, but the Big Fin was the aggressor. The problem for him is he was aggressively missing though. Both fighters drew blood with their first landed strikes but Vinkovic was surely in the driver seat early with his ability to counter punch. Frane scored a knockdown just 35 seconds or so into the first round. It wasn't very long after that, the still weary Virtanen found himself getting countered again with the fight ending strike. Frane's killer Instinct then set in as he began to pummel his falling opponent until the ref peeled him off. Frane Is the first and Only #8 seed to take out a #1 seed of the Playoffs. #4 George Pogie vs #5 Galen Fisherman George Pogie is a dangerous opponent if the fight hits the mat, a dual threat if you will with the ability to get the finish via TKO or Submission. Pogie was only able to get 3 fights in for the League but he made a statement in those fights winning all three. Should also be noted the reason why he only got 3 fights in is because there was a point where he was in between fight teams as his first manager just disappeared (What happens on the Island stays on the Island). Galen Fisherman finished his league fights with a 3-1 record and all of his victories ended in finishes. Galen being one of the younger fighters in the division proved age really don't mean shit when you got the goods. This fight was a rematch, as George managed to secure the win in their previous outing via Submission. Fisherman has indeed become a more skilled fighter since their first battle and with Pogie now under new Management this fight was not a guarantee for Mr Pogie. With that said Pogie had no problems reading his blue print that he laid out in the first fight and made this fight look identical. George did change things up a bit which could have sealed the fate for young Galen as he decided to use a counter Takedown this time to get the fight down. He also went with a different hold this fight from side control as he finished him with a arm Triangle opposed to his Kimura in the first fight. Semi Finals Matchup #8 Frane Vinkovic vs #4 George Pogie Our first Semi Final match-up we will see the American Grappler George Pogie challenge the Croatian Striker Frane Vinkovic. Vinkovic will be looking to pull yet another upset in terms of seedings, but after seeing him drop the #1 seed he wont be slept on again. The key to this fight I expect will be decided early and that will be if Pogie can secure the early takedown. Pogie was only finished once which was his debut fight but a big part of his last four fights was in fact his ability to get those early takedowns. #2 Aleki Veainu vs #7 Judo Dan Aleki Veainu aka the Zombie Finished 3-1 in league fights, winning his last three with very quick KO finishes. His only hiccup was his debut fight against Virtanen which saw him get TKO'd. That fight was a bit of a mystery though some say he was drugged just prior to the fight and may have turned him into a legit zombie as we saw him oddly go for 5 horrible takedown attempts without even trying to use his lethal weapons in his fists. Judo Dan went 2-1 in his league fights and found himself in a opportunity to advance via the Wild Card spot. He won that Wild Card over Jesse Kid in devastating fashion to earn his playoff spot. Heading into this fight both fighters have shown to have fists of dynamite as all their fights ended in round 1 or 2. Both fighters looked tentative at the start as it looks to be a feeling out process for them. That is until Judo misses with a wild right hand that Aleki took advantage of by countering with a quick right of his own that drew blood from the Las Vegas native. As we hit the 1 minute mark The Tongan has found his stride and lands a nicely timed uppercut that crumbles his foe but decides to be a gentleman and waves him to his feet where plants him with yet another painful uppercut instantly. At this point Dan knew hew was Fooked and said screw it and desperately throws a couple wild punches that are countered with a massive hook from Aleki and Judo Dan is completely obliterated. #3 Louie Lopez vs #6 King Hippo Louie Lopez went a perfect 3-0 during his league fights winning all three with finshes. Lopez a Mexican born fighter has used his Impressive wrestling background to pick up his wins but has also shown to have the ability to use Submissions and Ground and Pound to finish fights. Meanwhile King Hippo was very destructive out the gate winning three straight and earning himself two performance bonuses in the process. Hippo found himself in an all out war in his final League fights with Bobby Bayou but unfortunately was forced out via TKO Cut Stoppage. Still and impressive 3-1 record for the big Samoan who earned his playoff spot. This fight on paper looked like it was going to be highly competitive, unfortunately the Samoan King Hippo seemed to be the only one who showed up. After drawing blood early on Lopez seemed unsure what he wanted to do after getting cut as he half commits with his first Takedown attempt. Hippos confidence was on another level as he looked to tear his opponents head clean off with his punches and after a Hook stumbles his foe to the canvas the hard hitting Samoan went for the kill! Low and behold Lopez proved that he didn't want a fight that night at least as he taps out due to strikes. Semi Finals Match-up #2 Aleki Veainu vs #6 King Hippo This fight looks like the makings of some real MADNESS! Who doesn't love some good ol Polynesian Heavyweight Violence? In one corner we got a Hard hitting Tongan with an Island Bloodline. In the other corner we have Samoan who looks to be the product of a cross bread between Butter bean and Mark Hunt. I honestly hope this gets out of the second round but I would be shocked. I can not wait to see who advances to the final and Crown our first Island Heavyweight champ, this division is looking stacked to so we should have a fun season yet to go.

  9. Suggestion: Allow more awards to be handed out post events Suggestions Description: I'd love to be able to hand out more awards after an event. The Sub of the night is obviously no good to me being a KT org, so i'm limited to just a KO and fight of the night. In particular i'd love a Performance of the Night award to be able to hand out, and maybe even the option to hand out multiple KO awards Pros: Fighters get rewarded for putting on a great/dominant performance (performance award)- not just KO's getting rewarded More fighters getting rewarded for KO's/great performances Cons: I dont make as much profit 😀

  10. Also make sure he has rested and is at high energy before a fight. Low energy affects how much weight can be cut. You want to keep energy over 90% when training for the best gains.

  15. Middleweight Playoff's Round 1 results (Part 2) #2 Antti Kokko vs #15 Saul Jackson Apart from his only MMA loss of his career, Anti Kokko has been astonishing inside the MILF cage with a League record of 3-1 as he managed to snag the #2 seed. The product of Oulu, Finland, Kokko has recorded two first round TKO's and one stellar second round KO via Spinning backfist, the Highlight of his career thus far. Myanmar's very own "Super Freak" Saul Jackson got his MILF career off on the wrong foot but managed back-to-back KOs in his next two fights. Luck would have it those two fights were just enough to get him a spot in the field of 16 at Middleweight as he clocks in at the #15 seed. This fight starts off with a Missed right hand from Saul and Kokko avoids is with ease then moves right into the clinch with the Muay Thai specialist. Standing at a mere 7feet + Jackson wanted nothing to do with the clinch as he relentlessly attempted to break free of the fins clinch lock. Saul would prove to be the much more aggressive fighter as the two would go onto to slugging it out from the distance. One more clinch from Antti around the halfway point but Saul immediately broke free and would quickly launch a hook that misses the mark. Kokko saw it coming a mile away and after avoiding it he would land a brutal Uppercut of his own moments later, that would rock the roots loose from this giant Beanstalk. Timberrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....Down goes Jackson! #7 Lawson Serrano vs #10 Samir Reid A native of Texas, USA, Lawson "The Lawman" Serrano went a respectable 3-1 in his League fights, only dropping one fight to Scott Potter via KO. Serrano though would go on to get a huge feather under his cap just prior to the Playoffs by beating the #1 seed Jake Walton with some vicious Ground and Pound in just under 4 minutes. Samir Reed had a phenomenal start here at MILF winning his first two bouts with first round (T)KO's. He would go on to drop his next bought to Saul Jackson, but with the previous two performances and the 12 points he earned was enough to send him into the playoffs. This fight would get started with Reid landing a counter, right on the kisser of "The Lawman". Serrano though immediately said Fook this and shot in for a quick trip takedown putting the boxer on his back. Lawson would go on to dominate Samir on the mat for the remainder of round 1. Round two starts and yet again Bammmm, Reid lands a nice counter, this time cutting up the heavy favorite with an uppercut. Serrano though, the wise wrestler he is, trips his way into another takedown and jumps right into the guard of his foe. Serrano would mix his Submission attempts very well with his GnP but ultimately it was the GnP that was more effective as he would go on to rock and finish Samir in Round 2 at the mark of 2:59 for the TKO Finish. Quarter Final Matchup #2 Antti Kokko vs #7 Lawson Serrano This fight looks to be very predictable, but the question is who will have the goods to prevail. Kokko is going to look to use his wrestling abilities defensively, to keep this fight on the feet. He went more with a clinch attack in his last bout, but he may need to rethink that process against Lawson. Serrano on the other hand is going to stick to what got him here and that is his superior wrestling and his solid mix of Submissions and vigorous Ground and Pound. Serrano may be the #7 seed but with his win over Walton and the fact that he is currently the #7 P4P fighter on the Island he has to be a strong favorite even against the #2 seed here. #3 Jean Arlin vs #14 Brennan Calhoun Jean Arlin started his young career here at MILF against Jake Walton who proved to be a step above him at the time, putting him at 0-1 in the League. He would then go on a tear winning his next three League fights, all by finishes with in 2 rounds or better, and would go on to take the #3 seed. Brennan Calhoun would go on to a 2-2 League record with one of his losses coming at the hands of Arlin. Calhoun's wins were impressive enough though, as he snagged 12 points with two first round finishes to gain his Playoff entrance. This rematch would start with the Muay Thai fighter in Jean Arlin going to work with his Counter strikes and drawing blood on his rival early. Calhoun though remembered his first meeting and he knew he had a chance as he takes down his opponent with ease and gets in some solid groundwork for the remainder of Round 1. Arlin would once again begin to tee off on Brennan, but Calhoun would have none of it and scores with a beautiful takedown once again. Calhoun's ground and pound seemed to get more dangerous as the fight continued, he would go on to land a perfect 34/34 of his ground strikes, and at the 3-minute mark of round 2 Jean Arlin was looking ready to tap and indeed did. Normally I would violently berate a man who tapes to strikes but it's really not fun when you're stuck and getting plastered with rabbit punches. Calhoun has now evened the score with Arlin as its now 1-1. #6 Francis Brooks vs #11 Adrian Ortiz Francis Brooks had a nice run in the MILF MW league going 3-1 with three Finishes. Two of those finishes were in the first round but his final fight was well earned, as he took out Nick Santorino in round three earning himself "FOTN" honors as well. Adrian Ortiz would get a mere 2-2 record, in the league phase, but those two wins were paved with destruction as he would collect two first round stoppages. "Big Papi" would then go on to challenge Brooks himself in a non-league fight which he would win in dominating fashion. This could be a prime example of just terrible luck as Brooks who had a very good run would get matched up with a guy, he just lost to in a fight just for bragging rights prior to the playoffs. In the rematch it almost felt like it was over before the fight even started as Brooks struggled to mount any offense as he looked to try and counter Adrian's attacks. Ortiz would go on to land just 4 out of his 9 strikes attempted. He would also shoot for an ill-fated takedown attempt which I'm sure was just a diversion, but this fight would be halted with a devasting Left Hook that sent Brooks into Lalaa land. Adrian would follow up with some punches from mount until referee Dick twister intervened. Quarter Finals Matchup #14 Brennan Calhoun vs #11 Adrian Ortiz The final piece of this Quater finals puzzle at Middleweight are two guys coming off of rematch victories. For Calhoun it was sweet revenge and for Ortiz it was just icing on the cake. In this contest we got a deadly Muay Thai specialist in the Dominican Republic's Adrian Ortiz and standing across the cage is the 19-year-old native of Toledo who will look to use his wrestling abilities to bring this one to his world. Calhoun has only been finished once by his Rival Arlin, and he's been in there with JCVD so you know he can take a shot from a god level striker. Ortiz though has some very frightful power so this one will be interesting as the two lowest seeds to prevail look to continue their underdog stories.

LEVEL SUMMIT SERIES - KT Level Round 3 Highlights Tokyo, Japan FOTN - Hung Young Wang vs Summit Panda Wang has been a swinging dick in this Series so far but Panda was jacked for this match up and wasn’t prepared to go down without a fight. Wang brought volume striking to his opponent, who handled the pressure very well. Panda couldn’t wait to get his hands on Wang and dominated in the clinch and worked well in the pocket, beating Wang to the floor. The second knockdown was a glimpse at the imminent finish. Wang was hard as fuck until he went limp. KOTN - Tinashe Chukwuma Chukwuma found himself in an even match up, so he decided to hit his opponent harder. HONOURABLE MENTIONS Young Blood wins!

  18. Would suck if you had a major surgery I suppose, but really if the current inactive clauses counted off properly 100% of the time everyone would be free after the agreed upon clause in the original contract. Where this becomes a problem is when the bug strikes leaving it at zero days inactive no matter when the last fight was. Solve that, and no issues for Orgs going under.

  24. So now calling out the scammer is a problem? This person intended to cheat from the very beginning. For weeks, I've been gathering evidence, tracking his movements, and over two weeks ago, I notified the administration about it. Now it turns out that both the community and the administration don't care about multi-accounts. I personally traced over 22 accounts he used. When I confronted him with my findings yesterday, he admitted to having over 100 accounts, many of which were installed in my organization to lower the rating. He revealed that he regularly returns to the game to sow chaos using multiple accounts until he gets bored or someone catches him. Additionally, he claimed he can generate VIP Memberships and cash. I don't know if all of this is true. What I do know is that everyone seems not to care about it at all. I notified the administration about it and haven't received any response. All of this does not reflect well on this game and its community.

  37. I think this thread is a perfect example of everything that has gone wrong with the game and the community in recent years. You have someone pointing out an obvious issue/inconsistency within the game that has been brought up numerous times and never once addressed. There is an overwhelming consensus within the thread the no one truly understands what the current criteria is that should be met to get an avatar approved. You have at least two long standing graphics artists who in my opinion (feel free to disagree) have made substantial contributions to the game and community with their work that are saying they cant be bothered to continue those contributions due to the lack of consistency above. Noting has ever been said that gives any indication that any of this will ever be addressed or a proper set of standards will be revamped and adhered to moving forward. Not saying this specific concern in relation to avatars is anywhere close to the biggest issue in the game but I think the points made above can be applied to 99% of all concerns that the community has brought forward regarding any issues they see within the game.

  40. We are all filled up now, but we are still accepting reserves in case someone drops out. Please contact me if you are interested in becoming a reserve. It’s pretty likely we’ll need one because I’d expect at least 1 person to not be able to do it.

  41. The Playoffs will hit the Island this weekend and I want to start by thinking Fireballer for his writing previews. It's a fucking lot (with 8 tournaments of at least 8 fighters per tournament) to keep up with and to do so you would have to be really fucking MAD! That said I have a little time away from Real Life and wanted to do a little something for the big festivities, so below is the Brackets and as seen in some of Fireballers previews above some images of the MILF Playoff Combatants. I will finish the rest of the Weight classes slowly but surely but for now here are the 135-to-170-pound Playoff brackets!

  43. As someone who has experimented with the whole franchising scenario I can say that yes it can happen organically but it is a nightmare to try and manage and involves an insane amount of trust with the person you enter business with. As is today you end up having to chase franchisees to determine what payment is owed and actually getting them to pay. It be a great feature added to the business side of the game if you could setup an agreement that company XYZ owns 20% of the business in exchange for $X and then the game transfer 20% of any sales/income automatically similar to being on staff. In terms of trust you are also leaving yourself very open to your brand falling into the wrong hands. For example I enter an agreement with manager XYZ to open a franchise clothing shop using my business name and my product designs in exchange for X% of all sales. That franchisee then goes and sells that franchise shop next week and the new person chooses not to honor your handshake agreement and continues on selling your product using your name with no recourse available. I just found without a feature set in-game to manage payment automatically and no in-game re-course available like a partnership or a block on franchisees selling a franchise without the approval or all partners made it not worth the effort.

  46. MILF Welterweight Playoff Preview Jovinovich vs Couture About Fighters: Jovonovich may be the 1 seed in this tournament, but he’s a very underrated fighter. 4-0 in MILF, every win a first round submission. He looks unstoppable. He looks eerily like Keanu Reaves, I wonder what the connection is there. He’s brutal with his submissions, from an arm bending Americana to a guillotine that knocked his opponent out cold. On the other hand, Couture barely squeaked into this playoff. After his first two league fights were wins, he appeared to have his spot in the playoffs but two straight losses barely kept him in the playoffs as the 8 seed. Couture is an island legacy, so he looks to continue his families success. Gameplan: Jovonovich would like to get this into the ground where he his incredible skills and will probably win. Couture has a bit of skill on his feet so he might want to utilize that but since Jovonovich has such good takedowns it might be tough to stay up for long. Prediction: Jovonovich gets a quick submission like all his other fights and continues his dominant run. Other Predictions: Aden Parker vs Elix Juarez Parker’s only loss came from Jovonovich, he’s been very dominant the rest of the time, I think he knocks out Juarez, who has been KO’d before. Ferriera vs Kokko Ferriera already got a first round sub of Kokko in the league stage, and I don’t see why it should be any different now against the 22 year old who may develop to be a good fighter, but currently is just not ready for the older guys. Andolini vs Hutchinson Andolini has faced and beaten much better competition than Hutchinson, but Hutchinson will try to prove that he can beat tough competition in this fight. They actually have the same amount of points, but Hutchinson lost to a decision last fight and Andolini could try the same strategy. Andolini by decision.
