Neo League 476 - #486: Birdie vs Maki

Description: Birdie takes on Maki in the Neo League in South America! It's a close fight, but Maki pulls out a victory! (Winner: Maki)

Welcome to Mexico, a nice resort place that's full of unique cultural attractions to see and things to do. The locals are always friendly, and there's always neat dishes to try. Especially if you like your food hot and spicy! There's pretty much a lot to see and do here in Mexico. Especially if you're a fan of the Neo League fights.

In a town square in one part of Mexico, a Neo League fighting ring has been set up with all the equipment needed to broadcast everything live. Plenty of seating is available, and vendors are selling concessions at great prices. Many people are gathered here to see the exhibition that is about to take place here.

"Ladies and gentlemen," A voice says over an intercom, "Welcome to today's Neo League Match. Introducing first, from Metro City, USA, the heroine of Metro City herself, Maki Genryusai!" At that, the crowd begins cheering as Maki waves to them from her corner of the ring. She then resumes her warmup, waiting for her opponent.

Birdie's not a very known thug. Lately though, he's been going out and getting a name for himself. Joining Saturday Night Fights and even participated in his first Neo League fight against Rugal, you think he would stop while he's ahead. But no, the big ogre of a black man is here, and in anther ring again. And he's coming out from the opposite side.

The announcer pipes up again, "And next, the brawler, Birdie from Bristol, England!" The crowd goes wild, at least, a few of them. The some that saw his match against Rugal and the tenacity he had to stay in the fight so many rounds, ever against his strongest strikes.

Cracking his neck, Birdie unravels his chain and just looks towards Maki. Grasping his chain in his right hand, Birdie makes sure to lick the heavy links up and down, looking up towards the girl intently as he does. He stops only to grin after he's finished. He's got nice, pearly teeth.

COMBATSYS: Birdie has started a fight here on the right meter side.

Is Birdie actually _licking_ his chain? Blech! Maki can only turn away and shake her head in disgust. Apparently, this guy has some rather unusual fighting traditions, but that's not what she's here for. She's here to fight, and she'll have to let that be trivial for now.

"Fighters ready. FIGHT!" And with that, the bell rings, and Maki turns to face her opponent. She sizes him up, noticing that he really is a huge guy, but the bigger they are, the harder they fall. And a challenge is more fun for Maki. She approaches her opponent carefully, keeping a steady eye on him as she does so.

COMBATSYS: Maki focuses on her next action.

Maki             0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0           Birdie

Birdie watches as Maki actually sit there when the bell rings. She focuses on him, sizing him up. But Birdie? He's just waiting for that bell, and when it rings, Birdie's rushing out, and right towards Maki. With his chain back around his left arm, it's easier to run.

Each foot step against the concrete seems bring him closer towards Maki as she begins to access Birdie. For a man his size, he's moving rather fast. Still, looks can be deceiving, now and then.

But that's about then when Birdie rears back his right fist, looking towards the girl infront of her. "Just don't bloody stand there! FIGHT!" Birdie calls rather loudly.

COMBATSYS: Maki blocks Birdie's Jab Punch.

Of course Maki's not gonna just stand there! She's gonna fight like she means it! And she's gonna prove that by raising her arms to block the incoming punch coming right at her. It barely fazes her, but it shows that Birdie is serious about this, and so is Maki.

"I came for a fight and it's a fight you're going to get," Maki replies as she swings her tonfa sideways towards Birdie.

COMBATSYS: Birdie endures Maki's Medium Strike.

Birdie lets the tonfa crack into his chest. It cracks nicely, the impact leaving a nice and heavy thud. But Birdie doesn't fall over, or break under the strike. Instead, lets it soak in, absorbs the blow, and works through the pain. The next thing Maki sees is not Birdie begin driven backwards, that's for sure.

"Yeah? Haha. Good. Because here I was thinking this would be over too damn quick." The man grins, a real big grin too as he reaches forward, aiming to grab Maki's arm which the tonfa struck with, trying to get his hands around her smaller arm, and pretty much man handle her with a much finesse as he possibly can.

Attempting to lift her up, he'd just turn, and literally try to hurl the girl into the ground next to him, using his own movement to aid in the 'throw'. Of course, Maki might be faster than Birdie is.

Yes, Maki is a swift young woman. Very quick on her feet actually. But that doesn't mean she can always get out of the way of things like this in the nick of time. In fact, sometimes it backfires on her. Such is the case when Birdie comes at her and attempts to toss her onto the canvas. She attempts to step out of the way, but her timing is way off, and she's flung onto the canvas. Hard.

"Unngh!" Maki grunts as she hits the canvas, before getting up via a kippup. She rubs her shoulder to make sure that nothing's dislocated or anything, and then turns to Birdie. "I'm done playing around," She says without cracking a hint of a smile as she jumps backwards onto the ropes and then rebounds off of them while flying directly at Birdie, attempting to deliver a flying kick directly at him!

Maki             0/-------/---====|====---\-------\0           Birdie

As Maki's on the canvas, Birdie takes his chance to get some distance. A little distance never hurt anyone, right? And the more distance you have, the more you can maneuver when your opponent gets back up. They have to, after all. But that's when Maki kicks up, before jumping back against the ropes, and literally propelling herself towards Birdie, legs extended for a flying kick.

And she impacts, the kick striking Birdie straight on. The larger man topples backwards, almost doubling backwards as he finds his footing. She's strong, but Birdie, he seems like he can keep up with whatever she can dish out at the moment.

"Good. I thought this would be too easy!" Birdie answers as he presses himself backwards against the ropes, trying to bound off, and literally snag Maki as he rushes across the canvas, head down, horn out as he tries to catch her as he passes.

Come on Toro! Maki's ready to play matador with you!

Erm, check that. She's not ready to play matador with Birdie. She's caught by Birdie and is hit by his attack, which leaves her a bit dazed and confused, meaning she's a little out of it for a moment before regaining her senses.

Without wasting a beat, Maki quickly drops onto her side so that she's balancing on the tip of her tonfa(!) and then spins around quickly with her leg outstretched!

Maki             1/------=/=======|=======\-------\1           Birdie

Birdie's too busy playing bull to actually play with Maki. And that's where he gets slammed, or at least, hit harder. It's a good feeling. At least sometimes. Here, well, pretty decently good anyways.

As she spins around, leg outstretched and spinning with energy, Birdie falls for it, going into the 'blender' of sorts, and coming out the other end all screwed up. The blows don't hurt so much, but the energy wrecks him. The chi makes notable marks on his skin that just can't be healthy.

And then he just watches her, as she spins like a top. So what does he do? He just watches.

She's kind of hypnotic, as he waits back, watching. "Haha. You'd be bloody good in a circus, lady."

COMBATSYS: Birdie focuses on his next action.

"Oh really?" Maki says as she gets back to her feet. "Unfortunately, I have a bit of a fear of heights, and I never was big on handling large animals. Sorry," She says with a grin before she steps back a little and leans against the turnbuckle. She takes the opportunity to catch her breath while she still has the time.

COMBATSYS: Maki gains composure.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Maki             0/-------/=======|=======\-------\1           Birdie

Birdie doesn't continue with the small talk. Not so quickly anyways. As she begins to speak, Birdie begins to charge once again. "What the hell's the difference anyways? You're just a quitter, right? Haha! I think I nailed you!" Birdie smirks as he doesn't stop there. No no.

Instead, Birdie literally tries to grab Maki mid rush, and crush her against the turn buckle, smashing her back into it, that is, if he even gets a hold of her. He's a large battering ram though. It could possibly happen.

Maki             1/------=/=======|=======\-------\1           Birdie

Maki sees the throw coming at her, and she realizes that she doesn't have the time to get out of the way. So she does the next best thing instead, which is attempt to take the fall.

As soon as she's grabbed by Birdie, she senses where she's being thrown, and braces her body for the impact. She lands a little harder than expected, but in return, she's got a bit of an adrenaline rush going within her system. She intends to prove that as she jumps back up and throws a kick aimed right at Birdie.

Maki             1/--=====/=======|=======\==-----\1           Birdie

The kick makes it there, but not before Birdie's spun a terrible web with chains. Heavy chain links, to be more precise. As she bolts at him, the chain is wrapped around the leg, stopping it from fully striking him in the chest. "Hahahaha... Catcha' my pet." Birdie grins as he tightens the chains. In doing so, Birdie begins too heave her up and over him, into the canvas. "EYYYYYaaaaaaaaah!" He calls, bashing her into it once.

But he doesn't stop there, actually pulling Maki up and over his figure, all the way towards the other side before dropping her on that side of the campus. "Eyyaahhh!" And then, he does it once more, actually bringing her up and over again, but this time, the chain unravels, sending her flying towards the side of the net, the chain link laying against the ground with a heavy 'thump'. Birdie's happy with that. Maki, probably not so much.

How humiliating. Being called someone's pet? Now that's just not right. But that's the least of Maki's worries right now. The worst thing is that she was wrapped up by Birdie's chain and then slammed around several times, leaving her very battered and bruised, sad to say. She's not too thrilled about it either. In fact, she's starting to turn very angry. Looks bad for Birdie.

Oh sure, he could probably laugh it off, but will he want to? Because Maki is rushing at him with the intent of delivering a swift flurry of tonfa strikes and kicks in rapid succession!

Maki             0/-------/-------|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2           Birdie

The energy slams into him. It's terrible, horrible, a very bad thing indeed! But Birdie survives to tell the tale of the Bushin Gou Rai Ha, with the multiple tonfa strikes to the chest, body, and every other part imaginable. Kicks and other strikes hit clean on, but he's too busy being battered backwards to notice. Now with a sliver of consciousness left, Birdie makes use of it.

"HEY! YOU!" Birdie calls as he presses once more against the ropes, lowering his head before literally charging himself back at Maki, even as she stands, trying to gut her once more, but this time, take her outside the ropes, and tackle her towards the ground.

Once there, if there, he'll unload with punch after punch after punch. One after another.

"Bloody get down and stay down!" This was Birdie. Pure strength over technique anyday.

Maki             0/-------/--=====|====---\-------\0           Birdie

Looks like Birdie's got his wish, as Maki's hit hard by each successive punch, and when the whole thing finishes, Maki's staggering around, her eyes barely able to stay open, and her legs feeling like jelly. She staggers forward to land facefirst on the mat. But Birdie had best watch out, since on the way down, Maki's tonfa will make a strike against him if he's not careful, since Maki's taking one last shot before she passes out!

COMBATSYS: Maki has reached second wind!

The tonfa connects with its target, and Maki hits the canvas too... But is she out?

Hold everything! Maki suddenly rolls forward and turns to face her opponent, full of fight once again, albeit a small amount of it...

Well, as the Tonfa strike reaches out to tag Birdie, Birdie sure as heck gets tagged. And he begins to fall back, even watching Maki get back up again. He's not damn letting that happen so easily, so quickly. Oh heck no.

So in his final charge, Birdie lurches towards Maki, trying to connect with his head once more, and take her down FOR GOOD.


COMBATSYS: Birdie can no longer fight.

Maki             1/------=/=======|

A valiant effort on Birdie's part, but given that he's heading down for the count, Maki's sure to help him to the canvas. She uses her signature attack once again, and it sends him down onto the canvas again. She's still hit hard, but that tiny bit of fight remaining within her keeps her from going down as well. She's battered, bloodied, and bruised, but still conscious.

The referee rushes over to check on Birdie, and then signals for the end of the match. "Ladies and gentlemen, the winner by knockout is Maki Genryusai!" Cheering can be heard, although some booing too as Maki waves to the crowd weakly and smiling a little, before stepping through the ropes and off to seek medical treatment.

COMBATSYS: Maki has ended the fight here.
