I didn’t completely realize until I sat down to write this, but for all intents and purposes, this is the last EA MMA article on MiddleEasy.com. It feels strange and it hurts. This game has been a huge part of our lives here at MiddleEasy, especially for me personally. Back in 2009 the second article I ever wrote for the site was about a hypothetical EA MMA roster. The first time I met Zeus and Bauzen in person was immediately after the game was revealed at Fedor vs. Rogers, and I can tell you exactly where I was the moment I found out EA was going to put the MiddleEasy shirt and my name into the game (a scary bridge in Hawaii). Not to mention all the great times we had on the 37 Sunday Night Fights cards and post event Saturday nights. Hundreds of you guys joined up and played and I will be honest, I loved every minute of it. Yep, even with RushStPierre. I don’t mean to get sappy, but very real friendships were made and sustained because of this game and our community, and that transcends, man. That transcends.
Tonight is the final EA MMA Live Broadcast, one last time to go out there, put on a show, and most importantly, decide the winners of the Rise To Greatness tournament. Tonight the greatest EA MMA player will be crowned live.
MiddleEasy’s Sunday Night Fights is represented throughout the undercard by BrothaLynch (aka WhiteBoy Cnote, the only known Gerald Harris expert), Liquidswords who you guys may know lovingly in the comment section as “Jonesy”, SNF regular and master belt holder AghastEagle and of course Tha Premiere. Aghast and Jonesy will be resolving a long brooding feud on Sunday Night Fights at welterweight, Brotha Lynch is fighting a dude named “Bladeflyer” and Tha Premiere is getting a rematch against the former MiddleEasy champion RushStPierre. God please let Premiere win.
I was able to nab a couple quotes from Brotha Lynch regarding his fight.
“Since Sweetness59 was too scared to fight me, They have now thrown me in against my arch rival BladeFlyer94 for my last fight on the EA MMA live broadcast, I promise I will make this an epic fight, Win, Lose or Draw, I will be fighting with my Middleeasy spirit. I’m not here for the trash talk like that bum “Therushstpierre” because I respect Bladeflyer94, But I plan on putting him to sleep! I have done it before…”
Now, on to the finals. Mr NRG and Smoke em will determine the greatest EA MMA player ever on Xbox 360, and AzgaardWarrior and Toyooka will go at it on the PS3. Those fighters will be having a mini tournament throughout the Live Broadcast, fighting in each weight class once (or first to 3 wins).
But wait, there’s more.
In a surprise bout, Fritz and D**kerman, the goofy announcers who have talked our way though the last year of Live Broadcasts will finally be settling a matter of diction in the ring. Bungalows will be thrown. Scores will be settled.
So, this is it. Stop on by at 8pm est and watch the final EA MMA Live Broadcast because we are never doing this again. Click below to join the chat room, or if you don’t like other people you can just watch below if I figure out how to embed it in time.
The finale (live)
