drinklime declares peace with fishingtime

In one of the most shocking developments in MMA gaming history, Neil “drinklime” Pirelli has declared peace with fishingtime. gdfishingtime learned of these developments after receiving this information from an anonymous source, citing confidentiality. The anonymous source claims to have received a notarized statement from drinklime. The contents of the statement are presented below in their entirety:

 In 2009 THQ released UFC Undisputed 2009, developed by a small but dedicated group of Japanese developers at Yukes. I owned an Xbox 360 and discovered a demonstration version of this title on Xbox Live. The game featured Charles “Iceman” Liddell against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. I immediately fell in love with the game, as it was a near-perfect representation of the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.

Over the years, a community gathered around this and other MMA games. The leader of that community was known as fishingtime.

We immediately butted heads. We tried to settle our differences through several Mixed Martial Arts bouts, but the animosity continued for several years. I attempted to express my displeasure using several MMA message boards, but I was unfortunately censored by several short-sighted authorities.

I long suspected that these authorities were being directed through back channels by fishingtime himself. I developed a secret international network of spies that revealed the truth behind what was going on. The authorities in question continued to sully my name, accusing me of crimes I never committed.

I assumed that I would never be able to resolve my differences with fishingtime. Not unless something changed.

Recently I was informed that due to Electronic Arts’ recent destruction of the MMA community, fishingtime had parted ways with the very authorities that sought to destroy me.

In addition, fishingtime has turned his life around. He abandoned the thugs at Electronic Arts and started a motivational fitness program. He lost over 80 pounds and began living a healthy life while inspiring and helping others.

When I was a young man in Okinawa, I met a very wise master of karate. I learned not only about martial arts, but many other life lessons as well. Among the lessons he taught me was the following expression:

起死回生
“Wake from death and return to life”

I have decided that it is time to forgive fishingtime, and I hope that he will forgive me. We have nothing to gain from fighting against each other. It will only lead us towards death. Instead, we both have a renewed focus on life, and will continue to dedicate our lives to such pursuits.

The path of peace is preferable to the path of war. It is for the sake of the MMA community, including myself, fishingtime, our families, their children and their grandchildren, that we must put an end to these hostilities.

I officially declare peace with Damon “fishingtime” Gesell.

Operation Sports once again bans fishingtime

For the second time in 2017, Operation Sports has decided to ban fishingtime due to yet another incident of harassment. The list of fishingtime’s victims continues to grow. Perhaps inspired by the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Matt Lauer, several gamers publicly spoke out against fishingtime’s untoward behavior. As always, we at gdfishingtime will continue to report on the latest developments.

We encourage any other victims to come forward. We will not back down against these heinous crimes.

fishingtime shuts down r/EASPORTSUFC2

We have just received word that fishingtime has given up and shut down his underground subreddit, r/EASPORTSUFC2. This came after months of controversy that split the community apart. Fishingtime ruled with an iron fist, banning many members and locking threads within hours of their publication.

Meanwhile, with fishingtime’s absence, r/EASportsUFC has become a thriving community, with many helpful threads discussing the game. Hopefully there is still time for the MMA community to heal from the damage caused by fishingtime.

Users begin destroying physical copies of EA UFC 1 & 2

We’ve received a lot of questions recently about the new trend that has gone viral in the EA UFC community. More and more users, frustrated with the state of the game, have started to break their game discs in half. Unfortunately, this is not an option for those customers swindled into purchasing digital copies of the game.
