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.

1. I suck at martial arts.
2. You suck at martial arts.
3. We all suck at martials.

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

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.
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.
