Made by a company called Round5 these are the prototype photos of their upcoming Randy Couture and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson figures. They will be solid vinyl and about 6" or 7" tall.

I know of other figures being planned, but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to leak the information just yet (although a Matt Hughes figure is rumored).

Should be in stores by Christmas.

I think the head and hands might be a little out of scale.

No, they're perfect sized, the bodies are just too small.:D

They were going for a stylized look and I think it turned out great.

If you think the UFC is fake, then you really don't have a clue about the sport.

There's nothing fake about it.

Yeah right. The sport lol. If it were real they'd get severely injured, obviously they don't so therefore it's fake.

Heh, your response has been the most civilized thats for sure. I've questioned UFC before but the other responses were from trash talking idiot highschool dropouts. That was on the spawn forum.

I can speak from my experiences from watching these guys train and hanging out with them in the hotel rooms before and after the fights. No one knows the outcome in advance and there is nothing staged about the fights. There's no way the UFC could have paid Matt Hughes enough money to take those two groin shots in UFC 65 (his payday for that fight was only $75,000).

But in the end, I'm just a voice on the internet, you can choose to believe me or not.

LOL Caeser hit the bullseye as well, it's also boring. I just don't get what people see in that thing it's a couple of dudes hitting each other with mixed moves from different martial arts. Pick one and stick with it. It's the thai kickboxing thats the most boring.

The wrestling side of it is my favorite, I like the big slams. The stand up gets pretty boring to me.

I do kind of understand what you are both saying. Unless there is just some spectacular knock-out, I only find myself interested in fights where I actually like one of the fighters. Without any kind of emotional involvement, it becomes tedious quickly.

Yep and from a comparison the battles between Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow were pretty epic. Unrealistic at times but stil thrilling.

Well scripted and choreographed fights will always be better. Just like a scripted football game that's edited into a movie will always be more interesting than 90% of the football games that you will watch live on TV.

Sports, in general, usually require some technical knowledge of the sport itself before you can truly appreciate them and enjoy watching them. For instance, I don't know anything about basketball or soccer and I hate those sports. I do know quite a bit about baseball, so I can watch a baseball game on TV and be reasonably entertained.

The same would seem to apply to MMA. The more I learn about the sport, the more interesting I find the fights.

Here's the Matt Hughes figure:
http://www.round5mma.com/mainwebsite_html/Images/matthughes.jpg

I actually had to play dumb earlier when talking about this figure, because I wasn't sure if I was allowed to say that I knew they were making a Matt Hughes figure or not. But I've known for weeks because I was the guy who actually took all the sculptor's reference photos.

I got permission from Round5 to "leak" this photo today and we should be making a big announcement on Matt's website really soon.

This is clearly a rough sculpt still (if you look around the shoulder area), but I have a photo of the painted prototype, I'm just not allowed to show that one to anyone yet.

Also in the works, Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell.

Well Matt made an announcement today about his figure in his weekly blog. The images are attached.

http://www.matt-hughes.com/blog/2007/10/22/ufc-77hostile-territoryround5-action-figures/

I think they look pretty good, considering the style. I just think they might have made Matt's eyebrows a little too thick. Maybe the paint apps on the actual figure will make them look a little less bushy.

Last week I had a dream I was Snake Eyes and every time one of the ufc fighters messed with me I kicked the monkey f-ck out of them. They kept messing with me and I kept beating the dog**** out of them. Then proceeded in my dream to very loudly show my disgust for ufc itself. I have weird dreams all of the time though, like the one where a orange or red pickup truck goes over a waterfall multiple times and a camera is dangled over the side so I get a very uncomfortable view of a thousand+ foot drop. It's a video game dream so for some reason I restart the level multiple times so the truck goes over multiple times and the camera dangles different ways each time.

I'm beginning to think that you might have an unhealthy negative-obsession with the UFC. I could say all kinds of really nasty things about NASCAR, but I won't because I know you're a fan of the sport and I think that would be in bad taste.

And no way Snake-Eyes could beat up Matt Hughes. Hughes is the most dominant champion in the history of the UFC and arguably the strongest fighter in the world. Snake-Eyes is a Saturday morning cartoon character.

Matt Hughes by reality.:p

It was just some random dumbassed dream of mine, right now I'm wide awake I have no opinion of the UFC even though I severely dislike it because it reminds me of the WWE. People say negative things about Nascar all of the time I don't really care what they say. Freedom of speech they can say it and I ignore it. The thing is GI Joe when it originally came out was based on real military stuff, even the 80's cartoons were real military but sigma 6 isn't. I bet there is a real life snake eyes like soldier somewhere.

But Snake-Eyes never talked, how are you going to deal with that?:D

Anyways, if you do plan to join the Special Forces when you grow up, then it'd be in your best interest to familiarize yourself with MMA/UFC fighting tactics, because Army and Marine Special Forces are starting to incorporate more and more of it into their training programs.

I'm already grown up, less talk would be fairly easy. He's also not a mouth breather that might be tough since I have allergies. I don't know who told you that the military is using that ufc mixed martial arts stuff but they are severely wrong. The military has always use traditional martial arts and probably will continue to do so forever. If they really start using that mess they are in a world of trouble. No offense but to me that ufc stuff is fake just like the wwe and so on. Stealth and zero hesitation are key to surviving a battlefield. Another thing that some soldiers do that might get them killed is going on tv giving their names.

I really don't like NASCAR, so I wouldn't waste a minute of time talking about how much I hate it in a NASCAR thread. So why do you spend so much time in here if you hate the UFC so much? I've heard your uninformed opinion and it's been noted, why do you continue to waste your time?

And what exactly is your military experience that you can state definitely what military training does and does not encompass? What combat experience do you have that makes you such an expert on what it takes to survive the battlefield?

We get lots of requests for Matt to give training seminars for the military because they know how useful MMA would be in hand to hand combat.

Yep, he's considered short by UFC standards, but he's not the shortest UFC fighter around. As far as weight, he usually walks around at about 192 but cuts to 170 before each fight.

Alot of people think 5'9" is short, most of these people are 6 feet or taller. I have my suspicions on why alot of people around here are taller than I am. 1 they moved from up north and their parents went to a DNA specialist. I've seen that crap on tv where wishful parent get to pick how tall their kids are and so on. I'm 5'9, there are times I wouldn't mind being six feet though.

The average male height in the US is 5'8". Worldwide it's 5'6" (all those Chinese men bringing down the average :D ).

So you're actually above average height. I'm 5'9" also.

The funny thing about Matt is that he looks really small in real life. I noticed it and most people are kind of taken aback by that.

That is a plus for him, he's shorter than ortiz and company but can still kick their asses.

Well, Ortiz is two weight classes heavier than Matt, so the Athletic Commission would never let them fight unless Matt just gained a whole bunch of weight. Seeing Matt at his most muscular, I don't see him reaching 205 pounds without just doing some serious bodybuilding, which would actualy become more of a detriment for a professional-fighter.

Matt's still the most dominant fighter in UFC history, and probably the strongest pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

For anyone who is even remotely interested, we will be getting about 250 of Matt's figure in our online store, so we'll be offering the option to have them autographed by Matt himself for an extra $20 (a portion of that will go to Matt's charity, the Rancho3M Orphanage in Mexico). We're only getting 250 though so they'll be first come, first served.

We should have them up on the store by the first week of December. I'll post a link here once they're available.

These figures were delayed because of production problems back in China (plus new inspection laws over there), so they've just started shipping in the last week.

Matt of course got an early figure sent directly from Round5 and he brought it over so I could photograph it for his next blog. It actually turned out pretty good and, of course, everyone here locally is really excited about this figure. I guess winning 9 UFC Championships, owning your own gym and having two cable networks fighting over TV rights means nothing. You're only truly famous when you have your own action figure.:D

I'm pretty sure they'll get to a BJ Penn figure pretty quick. I know that there was a Chuck Liddell prototype that was quickly replaced with Rampage very early on. So I would guess that series 2 will include Chuck and possibly BJ, GSP and maybe Rich Franklin or someone like that.

I've heard of people finding the Tito figure in stores, but I've never seen one on the shelf.

Anyways, the UFC just signed a deal with Jakks Pacific, the ones who make the WWE figures, so it looks like we'll be getting realistic, articulated figures of UFC fighters with an Octagon and everything:
