Neo League 101 - #113: Sagat vs Kyoko

Description: Sagat and Kyoko have a fight in the forest with an unexpectedly close finish! (Draw Match)

A forest shrine, a place of peace and tranquility under most circumstances, but theses were not most circumstances. These were bizarre circumstances, these where a league fight! And having been set up, the official league fight commentator, or at least one of them, Naerose was here too, amongst the other people, stands with food and fans of the big fella. Oh yeah, Kyoko got some big fan service points too no doubt, but what was driving this event? Commercialism .

"Alright Folks, we've got quite the match up today, remember when you were younger and you asked your friends who would win in a fight between the monsterous Sagat or the alluring Kyoko? Well here is your chance to find out! This matchup is truly beauty versus the beast, but can she tame him like King Kong? Mmm.. He's got the height, but he's missing the air."

"IIiiiin this corner, we have the dainty nurse Kyoko Minazuki from Justice High School.. and in this corner.. the 'Emperor of Muay Thai,' Sagat Sagat! I've personally never heard of that country, but he represents them well.."

Now, why can't Sagat be the Beauty? Why does he always have to be the monster or the beast? The Mighty Thai doesn't care. He just shows up in the Shrine's vacinity, ready to fight. His overcoat has been discarded some time ago. He's wearing his standard shorts and well known ankle and wrist wrappings. The God of Muay Thai just stands there, stretching out his shoulders and legs, while waiting for the match to begin. This is the first time he's had a commentator for one of these League matches. Here's to hoping he ignores the color commentating.

The crowd's torn in two -- there are those who are here to see Sagat's fighting prowess; unlike Kyoko, he's quite a reknown fighter and his skills and feats with Muay Thay are fearsome. What does that leave Kyoko with? Well there are those pre-teen boys and the folks who'll never get laid who are here to see some legs. Mind you, that's not all of Kyoko's fanclubs, but you know that if they're there just for that, odds are they might fall in this category. Kyoko isn't a bad fighter overall, however, she definately doesn't fall in the 'titan' class.

Arriving within the shrine's vacinity about the same time than Sagat does, Kyoko's lips curl into a smile and she idly stretches as well. Clad in her usual outfit, with only her labcoat to shield her from the chill, Kyoko holds what appears to be a clipboard in one of her hands. Her lips curl into a cocky confident smile and she bows gently to her opponent, not minding the commentator, in fact, she likes it, "An honor to fight a fighter with such fame, let's see if Lady Luck's smiling on me today," Kyoko says as she puts herself in her combat stance.

"Alright, the fighters appear ready, lets hope that fortune smiles today on both competitors and we see a good match, Are you ready, Triumph or Die!" Naerose cries into the loud speaker before rummaging around in her deck of collectable fighter cards. You can hear her commenting even while she's clearly talking to herself.

"Lets see.. Ugh, there are so many Sagat cards, seems like every deck has like six.. Could of sworn I got a Kyoko card around here somewhere. . . No, no, Mai, no, no... Ah -hah! Kyoko!" She holds up a trading card happily.

COMBATSYS: Kyoko has started a fight here.

Kyoko            0/-------/-------|

The Mighty Muay Thai God stands there, looking towards the fighter he is to face in this match. He just grunts at her in response to what she states. His feet slide underneath him and he rises onto the balls of his feet. His fists raise in front of him as he prepares himself mentally for the bout with Kyoko, "Lady Luck." He says almost to himself, "Leave her out of this. It's you and I. Come." He offers for her to initiate.

COMBATSYS: Sagat has joined the fight here.

Sagat            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Kyoko

"We'll see, maybe she'll decide to interfer, there's not much I can do about her. She's a cruel Mistress after all.." Kyoko states with a slow nod of her head. Her smile widens a bit at Sagat's gesture and she plants her heel a bit in the ground, "How sweet... Ladies' first.." She nods to Sagat though, her playful expression shifting to a more serious and focused one. She figures Sagat isn't quite the talkative one during fights and it's not like Kyoko can affort to split her attention any.

Taking the offer to be the first one to hit the other, Kyoko kneels slightly and she rushes over the taller fighter. A reckless and daring tentative as Kyoko tries to get a hold of Sagat. Considering his height, it may be a little difficult but with her knowledge of joint manipulation, she may be able to just pain him long enough for him to stay in place while she delivers him a few good kneeshots in his side.

COMBATSYS: Sagat blocks Kyoko's Shokushin.

Sagat            0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0            Kyoko

" And here we have it, Kyoko seems to be trying to throw that thing around, but he's a mountain, a wall of muscle, so far the nurse doesn't seem to have budging the mammoth, but just now she might have other problems to contend with, he looks ready to strike back.. And that ladies and gentlemen is something to avoid,

It's hard to paiN Sagat into doing anything! The Mighty Thai is ready for the Nurse. Her manuever is cleanly blocked with a few movements of his heavily muscled arms and legs. He hops backwards to get a foot or two of distance between the two. He grits his teeth and narrows his eye, deciding quickly how best to deal with this woman. He puts his weight on one leg and swings a rather swift kick towards the woman's side... probing her defenses!

COMBATSYS: Sagat successfully hits Kyoko with Light Kick.

Sagat            0/-------/------=|====---\-------\0            Kyoko

Her defense doesn't seem all that strong. Kyoko raises her arms up to block the incoming kick, however, unfortunately, it seems that Sagat's swift and rapid kick is enough to burst its way through her guard and get her right in her side. Kyoko groans a little in pain and she staggers slightly. The nurse bites her lips and she shakes her her, trying to shrug off the pain from the impact. At least, there's one thing that's certain, if she allows him to touch her too much things aren't going to look well for her.

And so it leaves her with one option. The best one she has. Submission. Might as well hope this one will work. And so, Kyoko attempts to close back the distance and get a hold of one of Sagat's arm. If she can, she'll merely try to twist it about into a rather painful position and force the Muay Thay fighter around into an armlock.

Sagat            0/-------/-----==|====---\-------\0            Kyoko

The Tiger's kick hit home, just the way he intended it to. The defenses he wanted to probe, nearly non-existant. This match will be over pretty soon for the Tiger and the Nurse. This does not bring him satisfaction, instead he's disappointed. The Thai Warrior rushes towards Kyoko again and bends down low, "TI-GER UPP-" But he's cutoff! He's attempting to interrupt her attack, but the Nurse proves to be a little quicker than the Veteran anticipated! He's brought down to the ground, his monsterous size flattening a nice section of earth underneath him. His arm remains in the submission hold after falling!

"And Kyoko is unrazzled, though knocked directly by that foot of Sagat's, I might bring to your attention he does not currently have a shoe deal, as shown by his lack of foot wear, How Kyoko feels about that. . . " *smack*

"Goooaaaaaal! Kyoko manages to nail the mammoth opponent. It's really nothing personal, but this is clearly an underdog match."

"Sorry dear, not if I can help it.." Kyoko says, lips curling into a wide grin as she actually controls the situation. Let's say that she's pretty glad she managed to be fast enough not to get nailed by that Uppercut because that would have hurt a great deal. Kyoko had the experience with just one kick and she doesn't particulary look foward to it.

Holding Sagat down in her armlock, Kyoko simply waits for the Muay Thay to attempt to break the hold. At least she's ready for him to try.

COMBATSYS: Kyoko focuses on her next action.

[      \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////       ]
Sagat            0/-------/-----==|====---\-------\0            Kyoko

It doesn't take long for the Tiger to want to break the hold, in fact the Nurse doesn't have much time to focus on him and the situation they are both in. The Tiger reaches out with his other arm and attempts to grasp her arm. With both his arms, he pulls and his upperbody attempts to rise. As he does this he tries to shoulder toss the woman away from him, "RAAAH!" Shouts the man while he makes this effort.

COMBATSYS: Kyoko fails to counter Quick Throw from Sagat with One Wing Stance.

Sagat            0/-------/----===|=======\-------\1            Kyoko

Despite her best attempt to hold down the Muay Thay fighter, her strength is no match against his and the Nurse soon finds herself hitching a ride on Sagat's back. Though it's only for a few seconds as she gets tossed off his shoulders and right to the ground with a loud thud. The Nurse groans a bit in pain as well as the fact she failed to prevent this from happening. She squirms a bit on the ground and she slowly forces herself back to her feet.

It looks like the Tiger manages to free himself from the submission hold of the Nurse. Once that is done, it does not take that much time for him to get back up onto his feet and into a fighting stance. The Tiger's eye narrows as he takes a quick second to collect himself and ponder his mistakes. How did he end up in that most unsavory of positions? His head shakes once, pushing those thoughts into the back of his mind for the time being. There's a fight at hand. The Tiger rushes forward and is ready to pounce, "TIGER CRUSH!" He shouts as he leaps into the air. His knee is thrust out in front of him and the big man careens towards the nurse!

Sagat            0/-------/---====|=======\-------\1            Kyoko

"Here we have a battle of strength ending in the Tiger God smashing the Nurse against the ground like she were some kind of ant! And if that wasn't enough, he's going to end her with one blow if he can, ladies and gentlemen, if this hits, Kyoko may be cramed so hard into the ground that there won't be much of a match left.. But look at that! She's gotten out of the way! Just the last moment! I can't wait to see what is in store next."

One thing is certain -- Lady Luck is at the very least smiling a bit at Kyoko right now. This parry comes mostly from luck more than actually skill, but it's quite enough to actually leave the crowd breathless as the nurse avoids Sagat's knee.

Lips curling into a wide grin, Kyoko attempts to use this as an opportunity to get to trip Sagat... And if she suceeds, the Nurse will then actually force Sagat through a series of submission, using her knowledge of joint pressure to actually give a lot of pain to Sagat's arms and legs.

COMBATSYS: Sagat endures Kyoko's Final Prescription!

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////              ]
Sagat            0/-------/-======|-------\-------\0            Kyoko

The Mighty Thai's taking it like a man, oh yea. She's a bit too quick for the Tiger, and just tenses his body and focuses on Kyoko's actions. After he's tripped, Sagat endures the submissions. He grunts and grumbles as each submission is placed on the big man. All the while he continues to focus on the woman, looking for an opening. He rolls when an arm is free and attempts to slam a powerful elbow into the woman's upper torso, be it a back or a chest.

COMBATSYS: Kyoko blocks Sagat's Fierce Punch.

[            \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////                 ]
Sagat            0/-------/=======|===----\-------\0            Kyoko

About just as effective as she expected it to be on a legend like the Muay Thay Emperor. Kyoko doesn't allow much of an opening, and the elbow shot he delivers her is swiftly blocked -- though it's enough to make Kyoko groan and for him to get her off from his back. She staggers back and she rubs her arm a little. That hurt so much she doubts she'll ever try to block another of his attack. Too dangerous, she might end up breaking her forearm or something.

Lips curling into a smile, not wanting to give Sagat much of a time to recover she rushes over him and attempts to get a hold of Sagat's arm. If she suceeds, she quickly turns around and presses her back to him, forcing him off the ground and throwing him off over her shoulder, slamming him down to the ground.

COMBATSYS: Sagat fails to interrupt Strong Throw from Kyoko with Tiger Crush.

Sagat            1/-----==/=======|====---\-------\0            Kyoko

"And the Tiger and the nurse are going blow for blow, I'm pretty impressed if I do say so myself, we have a rather painful looking throw from Kyoko, followed by a really nasty looking punch.. right as the Tiger goes down, and Kyoko brings Sagat down and somehow guards that bone crushing hit! She's still on her feet and now the Nurse is trying to pick Sagat up, he's rising with a Tiger Crush, a crazy knee toward the gut and and.."

"Oooh my! She's rolling with it, taking his knee and sending him back to the ground!" Naerose exclaims, on her feet.

The Mighty Thai felt the woman's defenses hold true against his powerful elbow. And he wants to capitalize on this turn of events! The Muay Thai God rolls and gets up. When she's rushing at him, he's prepared to perform his powerful Tiger Crush once more. He's about to leap when he's caught by the swift footed Nurse. The Tiger is hurled over her shoulder and, indeed, slams hard against the ground.

Yeah, Lady Luck is really on her side. She's enough on her side that the supporters of the Muay Thay fighter can't believe their eyes at what's going on. Impossible! This simply cannot be. Impossible. In fact, Kyoko's quite surprised that she managed to hit Sagat's weak spots. Not the time to get cocky though, since she seems to have been able to keep up so far, but she's not in a good position either.

With a grunt, Kyoko uses the opportunity of Sagat being into the ground to try and pin him down with a leglock, barring his legs and forcing him into another yet uncomfortable and painful position, but with her legs this time.

COMBATSYS: Sagat blocks Kyoko's Leg Bar.

Sagat            1/-----==/=======|=====--\-------\0            Kyoko

It takes a lot to bring down Sagat with a leg submission. Have you seen those legs? They're tree trunks! Though it hasn't stopped Kyoko before, the Tiger is focusing a bit more on her strategy. The Tiger grunts as he pulls his leg away from her. She grasped him and wrenched his leg a bit, but he freed himself. The Mighty Thai then grunts as he puts that leg down, spins on the ball of his foot and then lashes out with a powerful heel kick towards the Nurse, "GRAH!" he shouts to help focus his strike against her!

COMBATSYS: Kyoko dodges Sagat's Light Kick.

[                   \\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////                  ]
Sagat            1/-----==/=======|=====--\-------\0            Kyoko

They might be tree trunks and quite a challenge but Kyoko's not giving up. It's her best chance to suceed and not to actually get hurt in all of this. Unfortunately for Sagat, Kyoko happens to be able to spin around on the ground and avoid the heel kick that's meant on her. "Dear God.." Kyoko mutters under her breath, sweating a bit. She's really thankful she hasn't been hit too hard yet to be able to move in time not to get it. Definately, after her blocks, she really has to avoid getting hit by those shots.

And so Kyoko doesn't run away from Sagat. Nope, instead she leaps at him and she tries to lurk in his back and leap on his back to wrap her arms around his neck to hold him into a sleeper hold!

"This time Saga comes back with another kick like before, except Kyoko is on FIRE! she's managed to avoid certain doom with a speedy finishing blow from Sagat, but this fight is NOT over, he's not considered a top fighter for noting, this is a rare battle where we see two obviously skilled opponents. .And lets see some stats, that throw used before by Kyoko is called 'Final Prescription', which apparently has a low hitting rate, we're not sure why she chose that name, but we'll find out with our post fight interview. . That is if she's still conscious, here she comes and here comes the Tiger!" Naerose exclaims.

COMBATSYS: Kyoko successfully hits Sagat with Quick Throw.

Sagat            1/---====/=======|=====--\-------\0            Kyoko

The big man doesn't appear to get out of the woman's way. He tries to deflect her, but he's unable to. The swiftness of the attack really makes the Legend seem slow. She starts to choke him in this hold, but it does not last long. The Mighty Thai shakes the woman off of him, "TIGER-" He shouts as he launches into a Tiger Crush. Upon landing from that attempt, he will immediately go into a series of punches, "GEN-O-CIDE!" He shouts in utter anger. The series of punches get stronger and swifter as rage begins to over take the Thai Legend. He finishes his series of combinations with a pair of powerful Tiger Uppercuts!

COMBATSYS: Kyoko dodges Sagat's Tiger Genocide.

Sagat            0/-------/-------|=====--\-------\0            Kyoko

The woman should have seen this coming. She has already enough trouble to actually hold on to Sagat's back. She groans a little as he finally manages to shake her off and Kyoko's eyes widen as she finds herself caught right in front of the towering mass of muscles. Things don't look back, especially as he seems just that angry. Kyoko grunts a bit and she staggers back a little, letting out a few screams here and then as she believes she'll get hit but no... She barely manages to dodge it, "Urg, arg!"

And against all odds... She comes intact and in one piece, having avoided the onslaught of fists and those uppercut. Being in no position to actually give him another submission though, Kyoko simply tries to give Sagat a quick few punches into his abdomen, where she sees a little opening.

COMBATSYS: Sagat blocks Kyoko's Quick Punch.

Sagat            0/-------/------=|=====--\-------\0            Kyoko

The Mighty Thai is not looking so mighty against this school nurse. Kyoko has managed to win the favor of Lady Luck during this League match. She's hit all the right spots and was just too quick for Sagat through the majority of this fight. Or perhaps the Legend underestimated the woman's abilities? In any case as the woman lashes out at him, the Thai man raises an arm to block the incoming strike. He grumbles and raises his opposite leg. He attempts to slam his knee into the woman and then follow it up by extending his leg and sweep kick her to the ground!

COMBATSYS: Kyoko blocks Sagat's Medium Kick.

Sagat            0/-------/------=|=======\-------\1            Kyoko

In any case, this is turning out in a way that nobody would have ever expected it to. Kyoko grunts and, not wanting to tempt Lady Luck again, merely lifts her arm up to block the incoming knee shot and her other arm goes up to block his other kick. Her arms hurt so much, she's definately not going to use them to hit the Muay Thay fighter.

So what is Kyoko left with? One of her best asesset. Her legs. Definately. With a grunt, Kyoko just leaps up and she attempts to give Sagat a series of ascending kicks, shouting along with it. If she manages to connect her kicks, odds are she might be able to lift Sagat off the ground a little as she brings him up higher with her series of ascending kicks.

COMBATSYS: Sagat blocks Kyoko's Stairway to the Sky.

Sagat            0/-------/------=|-------\-------\0            Kyoko

The Thai's defenses are mighty! He holds them up even as he ascends and kicks are bounced off his mighty muscles! When he lands, he looks tired and winded, however, "Ugh..." He mutters. His mind is awash with the mistakes that he made in this fight. He grumbles as he recalls trying to interrupt her attack with his Tiger Uppercut, but only finding out she's faster than expected. The big man will have plenty of time to beat himself up over this. He stands there for a moment, in his fighting stance. He starts to move forward, slowed by his fatigue and pain, "Good match." He states before shouting, "TIGER CRUSH!" he suddenly launches into his Tiger Crush attack, in a last ditch effort to land a worthwhile blow against his opponent.

COMBATSYS: Sagat can no longer fight.

Kyoko            0/-------/--=====|

"We're in the final moments folks, this exchange of blows have mainly seen not a single clean hit! But these fighters are tired, they're running low on energy and I think any blow from either side could be enough to bring either fighter down, I'll tell you, this was a shocking display of skill from both competitors. .. Here it comes, the tiger is starting to ease up, but not without giving Kyoko one final show of might! The TIGER CRUSH,
this move is very common and popular among fans, a no joke knee which in this case looks like.. oh that's gotta hurt.. I believe we have a tie.."

The second successful hit landed by Sagat. And that's a reminder of Kyoko why she didn't want to get hit by the Muay Thay fighter. The woman lets out a grunt of pain as she gets hit right in the stomach by his attack. The woman winces and she growls, staggering back a bit and falling to her knees. She pants loudly and she glances up to Sagat, wincing, "Huh... Yeah... I never thought... I would have done this well against you..."

She coughs a few times and she trembles a bit, "Guess... Guess Lady Luck was with me after all... eh?"

The Thai lands from his flying knee, and is just in a kneeling position. He grumbles a bit and nods his head at the woman, "Indeed. I am rather surprised as well. Our next meeting will have different results...." He mutters and falls forward, resting against the palms of his hands. He says this with anger in his voice. Anger at Kyoko... anger at himself.

"... Yeah, well don'T break me in half next time?" Kyoko says with a soft chuckle, trying to get back to her feet. Though that's rather hard. She coughs and she glances up at him, "Are you alright?" She asks. "If you need medical assistance, I can provide it... If you give me... A few seconds to recuperate from this.."

"No." He states firmly as he shoves himself back into a standing position. He's limping slightly, but quite determined to leave under his own power. The big man glances towards the woman and nods to her. As he steps away slowly, he looks towards the commentator and nods before trying to make his escape. He's got things to ponder and beat himself up over.

" Well folks, that raps up today's match, an exciting match if I do say so myself! This unbiased commentating was by Naerose Delphine, and now we go to the post fight interview," Naerose says and steps toward the fighters, she looks over at Sagat and shudders with a moment of fear. Nope, not going to talk to him, he's scary,

"Miss Kyoko, exciting match! How do you think you would fair today, was there any big surprises?"

Kyoko barely has the time to recover herself that she already gets questions? No wonder considering how well this whole battle went. Kyoko winces and she groans a bit, "Heheh... I'm glad I didn't get broken in two, that's one thing... And I definately think I've used all my luck for a whole year..."
