You’re slightly mistaken in your understanding of the MMA Simulator used to determine the fight winners.

Each fighter consists of 17 different statistical categories that create an accurate portrait of a fighter's skill level, along with a number of different strategic percentages that effectively depict a fighter’s tendencies.

Here’s a comparison between Rich Franklin and Jason Thacker (Franklin is the first number, Thacker the second).

CONDITIONING – 7 - 6
EFFICIENCY – 7.5 - 5
STRENGTH – 7 - 6.5
SPEED – 7.5 - 6.5
AGGRESSIVENESS – 7.5 - 7

PUNCHING – 7 - 5.5
KICKING – 6 - 5
CLINCHING – 7 - 6
TAKEDOWNS – 6.5 - 6
SPRAWL – 7 - 6

GROUND POSITIONING – 6.5 - 5.5
GROUND STRIKING – 7 - 5.5
SUBMISSIONS – 6 - 5

KILLER INSTINCT – 7.5 - 7
INTELLIGENCE – 7.5 - 5
TOUGHNESS – 11.5 - 9
HEART – 7.5 - 6

OVERALL - 47 - 10

As you can see, Rich Franklin is in another class when compared to Jason Thacker. There is a microscopic chance that Thacker would win this fight.

Here's an example fight between Jason Thacker and Rick Franklin (this is the basic text; it will be much easier to follow in the full game).

In this case Rich Franklin wins quite easily, and he did all ten times I simulated the fight. While it’s true that upsets are possible, somebody like Nathan Marquardt is more likely to upset Rich Franklin then the lowly Jason Thacker.
