Neo League 426 - #448: Katelynn vs Sagat

Description: The Swiss Alps become a battleground for Sagat and Katelynn. (Winner: Sagat)

Europe is a large place. A very large place, really. So where could the Neo League schedule an event? We'll say high in the alps. A section of the mountainous region has been leveled out with huge platforms to provide a flat fighting surface as well as an area for onlookers to gather. It is here that the Neo League has scheduled two fighters to arrive and put their records on the line. One of those fighters happens to be the Muay Thai Legend, Sagat. He's a long way from Thailand... but that's the life of the street fighting circuit! Sagat is dressed in his normal fighting attire; A set of striped shorts and wrappings around both his forearms and his lower legs. He has arrived on the fighting platform and is currently performing his pre-fight stretches.

The other fighter is an up-and-coming Shotokan Karate queen, Katie Molina, better known on the fighting circuit as Katelynn. She's dressed in her usual karate attire, and is also on the platform performing her warm-up stretches. The place is one that she's never fought in before, and it should serve as an interesting backdrop for the event. She notices that Sagat is a giant compared to her, but that doesn't faze her in the least bit. She cracks her knuckles as she finishes warming up and looks toward her opponent with a look that says, "I'm ready when you are!

The whole time he is stretching he's got his eye on the karate queen. When she looks up at him, Sagat turns away from her. The Muay Thai God looks towards the Neo League Coordinator. He gives him a nod and the coordinator picks up a microphone. The two fighters are quickly introduced after a brief oral fight history. The Mighty Thai shifts into his fighting stance and turns his attention back towards his opponent. He points to her and gestures for her to make the first move, "Come. Show me your strength and skill. Impress me with your art."

Katelynn looks to her opponent and bows formally. "I may look diminutive, but size does not matter in the fighting world. It is all about skill and how you use it." She smiles confidently. "I will be happy to show you my style." And with that, she assumes her fighting stance and readies herself for the fight.

An amused smirk crosses the older man's face at the response that he gets from her. He offers her a single stiff nod, "Indeed. Size does not matter. Skill and how you use that skill in situations such as this is what matters." Sagat raises his closed-fisted hands in a defensive stance. His feet slide underneath him as he rises up onto the balls of his feet. Sagat utters, "Than show me what you can do." He demands of her. As this is said, he focuses on pooling his chi, focus and strength... preparing for her initial technique.

COMBATSYS: Sagat gathers his will.

Enough waiting, it's time to get this show started. Katelynn takes a deep breath and blows it out, focusing her mental and physical energies on the fight at hand while blocking out other distractions. She then advances upon Sagat and, midway there, jumps up and towards him while bringing her right foot down aimed right at his torso.

COMBATSYS: Sagat endures Katelynn's Light Kick.

Sagat's massive torso takes the full brunt of Katelynn's leaping kick. She will slam right into him and Sagat will barely even budge backwards. In fact just after the kick, Sagat will lurch forward towards her. When she lands, the mighty Thai Tiger will launch into his own technique. It's rather basic as far as Muay Thai is concerned; An upward thrusting elbow strike meant to catch the woman in the chin!

The punch comes at Katelynn's chin, but she raises her arms to block it just in the nick of time, meaning that she's spared from what could easily have been a very bone jarring experience. As it is, she just finds her forearms in a bit of pain, but nothing too serious. She lowers her guard and gives a quick nod. "Not bad, I suppose." And right after that, she throws her left fist towards Sagat's stomach while letting out a yell of 'kiai!'

The woman is a bit quicker than the Thai Legend had anticipated. His rising elbow seems to have been effortlessly blocked. This brings about the slightest of smiles on the big man's lips. His elbow strike is followed up by Katelynn with a punch to his well defined midsection. Her fist collides with it and meets only the resistance of his tightened muscles. He exhales sharply after getting struck, but is not driven back again. To answer the punch, Sagat swiftly and fluidly performs a textbook roundhouse knee strike. The knee is lifted and directed towards Katelynn's own midsection.

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

Attempting to brace herself for impact, Katelynn finds herself timing her attempt very wrong, and ends up getting kicked rather hard, causing her to stagger backwards a little. She clutches her stomach and attempts to catch her breath before looking back up at the tall man that just managed to catch her off guard. She doesn't say anything, though. Instead, she pivots on her front foot and brings her rear foot up like she's going to kick Sagat, except she propels herself forward off her now-rear foot and flies at the giant with her foot still extended.

COMBATSYS: Katelynn successfully hits Sagat with Missile Kick.

The Missile Kick strikes its intended target. There is a collision between karate practicioner and Muay Thai Legend and Sagat is shoved back a step. He takes that step to steady himself against the sudden force against him. The amused smile remains on the large man's face. Sagat makes no comment on what he finds amusing, he just returns to his fighting stance. The Muay Thai Tiger launches forward again. This time the Legend performs another text-book move. He lunges forward with a flying knee strike. Due to Sagat's size, the knee is on a collision course with Katelynn's face!

COMBATSYS: Katelynn fails to counter Medium Kick from Sagat with Palm Blaster.

Katelynn decides now is a good time to attempt to show Sagat just who's boss, and attempts to hit him with a palm strike that has chi energy flowing through it. Unfortunately, her timing is very off, and not only does she miss, but she gets hit hard, and is sent staggering across the platform. She is very dazed and blood is streaming from her nose. She holds onto her head with one hand and tries to catch her breath.

However Sagat does't allow the woman too much time to catch her breath and recover. This is when Sagat really puts on the pressure. The Mighty Thai advances on Katelynn after she staggers back. She's got a grand total of half a dozen seconds before the Thai Tiger is on her. Sagat's got the amused look on his face as he lashes out at the woman once more. This time a simple downward arcing elbow aimed at Katelynn's head or shoulders is performed.

COMBATSYS: Sagat successfully hits Katelynn with Jab Punch.

Again attempting to brace for the attack, Katelynn fails, and is hit in the head. She is definitely hit hard and shows signs that she's definitely had enough, and in a moment will be dropping to the ground. But before she does, a sudden burst of energy comes from her, and she rushes at the fighter, attempting to deliver a swift barrage of punches and kicks in one of her last-ditch attacks. Whether or not it connects doesn't matter, because once she finishes, she'll be going down for sure.

COMBATSYS: Katelynn can no longer fight.

And it is definately a swift barrage of kicks and punches. An impressive display of skill and technique. The mighty Thai doesn't move a leg to dodge or an arm to block the various strikes made against him. Katelynn's feet and fists will collide with Sagat's tight flesh. His body absorbs the assault from the woman... and when all the strikes are performed, he takes a step back. He lifts a leg slightly preparing to perform another kick but he hesitates. Katelynn going down stops the big man. Apparently she's had enough and he will not be continueing. Sagat drops his leg and stays in a defensive stance. His eye rests steadily on his opponent.

COMBATSYS: Sagat takes no action.
