THE DUCKING DOUBLE STANDARD

You scout and recruit fighters from a pool of amateurs who come to train at your gym – it’s up to you to decide who to mold into championship material. Build their careers up in regional events until they are ready to make the leap onto the world stage and fight for world titles. To get an idea of what happens in the game outside of the ring, I’m going to describe the process of matchmaking. Posted by Aggroblakh on Sep 29th, Matchmaking To get an idea of what happens in the game outside of the ring, I’m going to describe the process of matchmaking. Selecting a Weight Class The matchmaking screen defaults to whatever weight class your currently selected fighter typically fights at. It is possible to set up matches at different weight classes, but there are stat penalties that are incurred when you do so. You are able to move up in weight or move down in weight.

The International Fight League was an American mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion billed as the world’s first MMA was founded on January 7, and closed on July 31, Instead of the established norm for MMA events, where matchups are strictly one-on-one affairs, each IFL card was a showdown between two camps of at least three fighters, each fighter fighting one match against.

By Zach Arnold May 3, This is a long article. Grab a cup of coffee and take your time. Read it in full. This has been a rough year so far for Scott Coker in terms of matchmaking with Strikeforce. Most of the heat directed at Mr. Coker has been about the CBS Nashville event on April 17th, which featured three title fights that on paper had a good chance of going the distance and they all ended up going the full five rounds each.

The spotlight and fallout from the main event featuring natural pounder Jake Shields defending a Strikeforce pound title against natural pounder Dan Henderson fighting at was the proverbial icing-on-the-cake. Going into the fight, it was well-known that Shields could possibly be on his way out of the promotion. So, naturally, he got booked in a main event slot on CBS. His opponent was Dan Henderson, the incoming hero from UFC who had taken out Michael Bisping — but that was nine months ago, a distant amount of time period in the mind of most casual fight fans.

Strikeforce and Showtime invested serious money into bringing Dan Henderson into the fold. UFC President Dana White claimed in the media that he was happy that Strikeforce signed Dan Henderson because it meant that they would have to eat a big contract. The show drew a lousy rating and to top it all off, there was a melee afterwards between Mayhem Miller and the Cesar Gracie camp.

Halo 3

It started with Ino’s plan to get Shikamaru and Sakura together. Naruto, in a spirit of competitiveness, was adamant that his two best friends were a match made in heaven. In which Sakura was exasperated, Sasuke was emotionally stunted, and Naruto was a bad planner. I do not own Naruto. I must say that it has been fun attempting to write this fic.

UFC Love him or hate him, Conor McGregor is the bad-ass fighter that MMA fans crave Despite his actions that resulted in an arrest, McGregor deserves praise for taking on his biggest challenge.

We saw everything from multiple groin strikes, upsets, taunting, and a restless crowd booing the most entertaining fight of the night: John Lineker Just beat: John Dodson Should next fight: Dillashaw This was a hard choice. I leaned towards Dillashaw with this pick, as there seems to be some animosity built up between Cruz and Garbrandt that could lead to their scheduling. I believe the most logical fight to schedule for John Lineker would be a title eliminator bout, and a dancing partner like TJ Dillashaw would be a good choice for it.

Bryan Caraway, Raphael Assuncao, and Jimmie Rivera feel a slight step behind when discussing title eliminator talk. He now sits at since returning to the bantamweight division in September of The winner, I am Alex Oliveira , 1 NC Just beat: Will Brooks Should next fight:

Matchmaking: post Fight Night

Sunday, January 23, Unintelligent Matchmaking: Fight For The Troops 2 Welcome to an idea I thought of while watching the fights last night at around 3: I Matthew Parker the self-proclaimed Unintelligent Matchmaker will attempt to suggest what should be next for the winners and losers at UFC events. A trip to the unemployment line he clearly isn’t UFC caliber. Kind of hard to judge where a guy’s at having never seen him fight and knowing so little about the Bantamweight division.

Same with Campuzano a trip to the unemployment line, the loss to Brenneman was his second straight in the UFC.

Oct 17,  · Team Shuffle > Do Nothing > ‘EOR Matchmaking’ 6. Old_fella_ posts Member. I’ve been in matches where both rounds ended in a close fight on phase two, couldn’t get more balanced, then it kicks you into a new half empty lobby. Im not a fan of the forced extra time between matches. Still getting a good amount of steamrolls.

Early battle of Spain starter airplanes, mostly BR 2: Immediate postwar period before Korea, including both propellers and jets BR Korea war BR spread is 0. With this it becomes hard to pick a plane which will always be the best performer. So a matchup of Tempest V or P D on octane [both logically 7. For the people who do play SB, they very well know that even the present 67" Hg P Ds [realistically – a 7BR plane] are capable of shooting down Me s, and the even faster and deadlier Tempest V doesn’t really fret too much about the Me I personally shot a number of them in a Tempest V in SB.

This would most likely not be possible in RB, though.

For a card that looked really fun on paper, UFC Boise was a lot more uneven than hoped. However, it still provided a lot of meaningful results.

Here is the best way to understand it and move on with your lives: One of the reasons MMA fans become frustrated with the UFC is that sports fans expect sport to be based on a certain meritocracy i. This is what happens in most sports and we believe this is the right way to go about things. However, the UFC is a promotion, not a sport. The UFC makes decisions based on what will make them the most money. Will this ever change? However, there is some hope in the form of the Ali Act. If you go here https: Of course, if the act were introduced there would also be less chance fights like McGregor vs Diaz would be made.

So if you enjoyed those fights, you should also be willing to put up with bullshit matchmaking like McGregor vs Alvarez.

What I meant was that some opponent were obviously bad so that the Matchmaking was clearly not taking a “right” opponent for him and his rank. By the way, a matchmaking system goal should be to drive you to Only the top players should manage a higher winrate depending on their “position”. The matchmaking’s goal should be to give you an even fight, regardless of win streak or ratio. If it did, then depending on how hard it tried to do so, it could easily throw average players against a newcomer one game for an easy win, and then against a pro player next game to even it out.

Another tricky thing about matchmaking systems is that absolutely every new entry into the system needs calibration, which depending on your system can take basically anywhere from games, maybe more.

Apr 23,  · Matchmaking to build Brook vs. Khan It will make Brook vs. Khan a better fight in the long run IMO. So, my question is, who would you match them with next, with a view to them fighting each other after that? Say at a lbs catchweight for talking’s sake. So think like a promoter rather than a fan. Somebody relatively risk free but not a.

On first sight, Ballas looks to be well up to the job. Quietly confident, charismatic and promising to be tough but fair, Ballas added that she’d be hot on footwork and stricter than panto villain judge Craig Revel Horwood.

There were also three new female professionals to meet. They were handily colour-coded – one blonde, one brunette, one redhead – and replace the likes of Natalie Lowe, the popular Aussie pro who will be much missed, and Joanne Clifton, who lifted the glitterball trophy last year with Ore Oduba but has now foxtrotted off to pastures new.

Welsh pro Amy Dowden was paired with comedian Brian Conley. It was flicky, kicky, full of attack, bounce and retraction, and just as impressive as 11 months ago. My dance boyfriend is keviclifton. Strictly is a dream come true. But can’t wait to find out! Expect to see them in the final. Anton Du Beke and Ruth Langsford look another loveable pairing – the “Anton effect” could take her far. I predict a grumpy Kiwi come October.

November 21, created by Jeff Kunkle Since the announcement of the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix was made, the particulars have been discussed in great detail. And the most hotly debated topic surrounding the tournament is, of course, the match-ups for the first round. Rumors have been bandied about but no solid reports have been made.

But, with the end of the year coming, we should see some fight announcements soon.

A great fight is a perfect storm. Put two fighters together and you never know what you’ll get, but when both have the intention of making a statement against each other and the styles mesh, it.

Contributing writer to Complex Media. It was their season’s home opener at the L. Memorial Coliseum, and you would think that Rams fans would be more than happy to have the team back in Los Angeles after 22 years away in St. But it wasn’t all smiles in the stands during the game. A Seahawks fan and a Rams fan got in each other’s faces. One wearing a Russell Wilson jersey approached two others, and began talking smack.

Neither party backed down and a fight eventually broke out. Everyone who was surrounding the Wilson jersey guy gave him a universal beatdown. The brawl that started on the staircase led to an older man screaming “HELP! No word on what caused the brawl to begin. And this isn’t the first time that the Rams had a fight in the stands within the past few weeks.

The event is now behind us, having produced a night of fun and interesting fights, so now let’s take a look at some potential match-ups featuring a few of the competitors from the evening I think the two match up well and would produce a fun fight in the UFC’s middleweight division; one that will almost certainly play out on the feet for it’s entirety, potentially ending in a knockout, as both middleweights are known to hit hard.

I’d like to see this fight booked for a future card, and I think it would work as part of the preliminary card for February’s UFC Fight Night 83 in London. Yoshihiro Akiyama vs Mike Pyle “Sexiyama” is not sure if he will fight again following a somewhat controversial split decision loss to still undefeated Alberto Mina at yesterday’s UFC Fight Night 79 in Seoul, but I think he is mostly saying that because he feels saddened and robbed. He looked the best he has ever looked in this fight, with his striking specifically, so I would personally like to see if in action at least once more, and I think fellow 40 year old veteran Mike Pyle make sense as the next match-up for him.

Golovkin vs Charlo is certainly a quality fight next up as well, a dangerous one for both guys and not a foregone conclusion. Golovkin could be slightly out of his prime at this point with Charlo.

Our reporters, columnists, radio hosts and editors will chime in with their answers and thoughts, so keep the emails coming. This week, we witness the diversity and nuance of opinions over what will be one of the biggest bouts of next year, with each voice expressing a different pitch and tone. Could Jones-Sonnen be a last stand for the reality franchise?

In addition, many of you have not forgotten about Lyoto Machida and Dan Henderson and remain curious about their situations. Speaking of curiosity, others wonder just how White is going to try to sell this fight once he starts the media blitz, since most see Sonnen as a prohibitive underdog. However, so too was Stephan Bonnar , and some onlookers were willing to make a case for him against Anderson Silva. That behavior has some of you asking another question: Pierre and Matt Serra forever screw up how we understand mismatches?

Then again, who thought that onetime journeyman Sonnen would have his third UFC title shot in a second weight class when he screaming in the clutches of Renato Sobral? Bonnar is barely in the grave and now White is lining up Jones-Sonnen?

Battle Rating BR is used to balance out planes based on how well they fight, or how dangerous they are. In realistic battles, you have only one plane and it’s BR is used to match you with approximately equal enemies. Usually you should not be put up against planes that are more than 1BR higher or lower than you.
