Last night was a really good card of fights. Struve looked great with that finish, he just needs to prove himself against a top level opponent. The Johnson/Brennemann fight at the time I thought was possibly an OK call, but the replay made me think otherwise. The Wiman/Danzig fight was excellent too.

The main event was a really good, close fight. Not in the sense that the rounds were debatable, because Cruz was clearly winning, but Johnson always seemed like he was in the fight. If he had a bit more power to land some significant shots, it could have been a different fight on the scorecards. Johnson will be a beast at 125lbs next year.

Except DJ has said he's not dropping to 125.

From that article.

(Sources inform us that the Octagon Girls for the UFC Japan show will be Chandella Powell, Rachelle Leah, and Hard Gay.)

Ok.

MPH, why you being so silly and telling me Rachelle won ADCC?

The early stoppage sucks but that's MMA. It's a sport, not a fight to the unconsciousness. I haven't gotten a chance to watch the fight again but I remember Charlie was back peddling, turning away from Anthony before the head kick, then went right down and it looked like Rumble could have followed up and had him in a vulnerable position. It looked bad on scene and that's what mattered to the ref when he made the call. It happens. Unless you have the respect of the ref after earning some sort of reputation, he should stop it before he thinks its going to get ugly.

I agree. Rumble was kicking his arse. I don't think Charlie stood a chance and was being dominated. This wasn't a knock down where it was a lucky shot and he might have sprung up and knocked Rumble out, this was a knock down where he'd been dominated from the start pretty much. Plus the way he went down looked like he was out and woke up during the fall.

Cruz looked great. It looked like he changed the game plan on the fly and never missed a beat. It was a great fight for him in that he got the chance to show he isn't just a guy who can use fancy footwork to grind out a win. Just a shame he couldn't submit him. But I don't find him at all boring. He engages and throws loads of combos, it's just that he can't seem to generate the necessary power to knock someone out.

I still think he will due to UFC pressure when the division is launched. He probably gained as many fans as Cruz did from that fight, I'd be surprised if he isn't considered one of the main choices for the inaugural title fight. Unless they do some kind of tournament.

Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida for the stacked UFC 140 Toronto card. Poor Lyoto.

Machida? What the fuck?

He's going to make Jones look good by getting knocked the fuck out. For similar see Henderson, Dan vs Rua, Mauricio.

5 decisions so far, let's hope the main card isn't gonna be like that.

EDIT: Make that 6

EDIT 2: I can definitely see another 3 or 4 decisions on the main card.

Was that one of them?

Just because a fight goes to a decision, it doesn't mean it was a bad fight, look at Edgar-Maynard II.

No, that's the only fight I expected to finish, not so quickly however.

And I know it doesn't mean a bad fight, I wasn't predicting bad fights, just long fights. :P

Personally I feel like his shenanigans have crossed the line from being harmless fun with the media to being a cynical attempt at self-promotion. He's saying and doing anything he can to get himself the best deal. I genuinely like Koscheck a lot more than him :wacko:

      How to Replace Data (so please don't ask again in this thread)
      Notes for EWR 2020 updates:
      Shimmer and RISE has merged in the game.
      Joey Kaos Munoz will be a staff under the name Joey Munoz as of February. He is a trainer since he runs the Santino Bros school. Only worked a handful of matches since 2016.
      I am debating removing The CRASH. Like most lucha libre rosters, it is fairly fluid and it honestly is a little too filled with unknown workers. Plus it limits some workers having a bigger promotion like Bandido.
      I am also debating separating FIP from WWN. Yes, I know it is in the WWN family but it has the most different talent of say Evolve and Shine. Only a handful work both Evolve and FIP. Shine I am looking to keep with Evolve as they have run double shots. All they share really is announcers and referees.
      Eric Bugenhagen is Rik Bugez as he is working under that name on Evolve in a few weekends. I was awaiting his return and use on NXT under the name. I'm taking EVOLVE bookings as use under the name.

      Here is the update for January, the big stuff this month has mostly been sorting out AEW's roster, wanted to give their TV time before axing people and then adding in a few workers (full list HERE), I've still got some pics to add workers for but a lack of info makes it a little harder, mostly the new Chikara wrestlers. Adding to that I'd advise that you use the new graphics pack this month, I've completely overhauled the pack removing the underscores instead of spaces as a prep for TEW2020. Other than that it's been the usual stuff for the month, updating title changes and stuff, most stuff posted in last months thread has been added anything missing just remind me and I'll look into it.
      Enjoy

      Frequently Asked Questions
      Why is [Promotion] closed when they are active?
      Due to how slow the game runs with more promotions active, I have included active promotions but have them closed, to identify these they have their opening date and closed date the same. To activate the promotion simply remove the closed date. They may also have their titles histories included, if they do you need to go into "Title Lineages" and remove their most recent record (identified with a "= -" or "= - #" before their record name). You can then activate the title (all closed promotions titles are retired) and then set the champion if they are under contract.

      Here is the update for December, nothing much big happened this month, just the usual updates and additions, there has been some new workers added (full list HERE). For next month I'm going to go through and clean up the AEW's roster, I wanted to hold off until they got into a rhythm and I'll go through and sort out exclusive and non-exclusive contracts. As usual if there is anything thing forgotten or any changes feel free to post in the threads or in the discord. New pics of the WWE belts are included in the graphics packs and next month I'm going to tackle my picture backlog to get a new worker pack out for the new year.
      Enjoy

      Here is the update for November, had some personal business this month so this is a basic update, the National Wrestling Alliance is an active promotion now, all their titles are still under their alliance, this is to allow the option to revive the alliance and all titles are still available. To add to that Southside Wrestling Entertainment has been closed down. There has not been many additions, mostly those mentioned and those new to WWE (full list HERE), there is no news if Velasquez andd Fury are done post Crown Jewel but they both are on PPA deals that end in a month. Other than that it's just the usual updated that have been mentioned and updating titles and such. Anyway you know where to complain if something is wrong.
      Enjoy
