    6 Degrees of Separation with MMA

    I have an idea for a game. What we do is connect two fighters together through their records using no more than six connections. The more improbable the connection the better.

    I'll give an example to start off with. I want to link Fred Ettish with Muhammad Ali:

    1. Fred Ettish fought Johnny Rhodes

    2. Johnny Rhodes fought Patrick Smith

    3. Patrick Smith fought Ken Shamrock

    4. Ken Shamrock fought Dutch boxer Andre van den Oetelaar in Pancrase

    5. Andre van den Oetelaar fought Alfredo Evangelista in a boxing match

    6. Alfredo Evangelista fought Muhammad Ali to a 15-round decision

    Does this sound like it would be amusing or is it just retarded? If you like it, give one of your own.

    sounds interesting, but more work than i'm willing to do right now.

    if anyone wants to, connect Lyoto Machida to PBF.

    The only way to make this game fair is to outlaw Travis Fulton.

    Agreed.

    And just to keep the momentum going, I'll connect Kimbo Slice to Mike Tyson: Kimbo Slice fought Tank Abbott who fought Gary Turner who fought Julius Francis who fought Mike Tyson.

    Argh, this is hard!

    The closest I can get is by blatant cheating:
    Machida -> BJ Penn -> Din Thomas (totally almost nearly fought and did get punched at the weigh in by)-> Ricardo Mayorga -> Shane Mosley -> PBF

    An easy one, but this needs to be done: Royce Gracie to Brock Lesnar

    Roye Gracie fought Ken Shamrock
    who fought Mark Coleman
    who fought Randy Couture
    who fought Brock Lesnar

    It would also be interesting to make a lost-to-chain to "prove" that a champion is weaker than a guy with more losses than wins.
    Example:

    Anderson Silva lost to Daiju Takase
    Daiju Takase lost to Jeremy Horn
    Jeremy Horn lost to Jason Godsey
    Jason Godsey lost to Ryushi Janagisawa
    Ryushi Janagisawa lost to Jason Delucia
    Jason Delucia lost to Katsuhisa Fujii that has a 12 to 18 record and lost his last 6 fights.

    But Daiju Takase already has more losses than wins.
