Here's hoping I'm doing this right...
WooHoo... I did do it right! The embedding I mean, the poster probably sucks... but hey... there's my effort.

I like it a lot and hopefully I do alright in this competition.
I would suggest duplicating your text making the bottom layer white and running a gaussian blur set to 1 pixel on it to make the Forrest/Liddell text really pop.

Couple tips, try adjusting the sizing of your renders so the fighters are the same size, also if you are gonna cut off on fighter the way you did Cain also do the same to the other fighter so it doesn't look off balance.
One last tip play with the blending mode on you C4D's in the back ground, try soft light and hard light. I think one of those would make it look better.

I really like this one my only real complaint is the selection of renders, try to select somewhat similar poses, it looks odd because Silva is in a relaxed position while Bones is hands up ready to go. Also Dos Santos arm sticking so far out makes it an awkward look render to work with because he crosses the center line. If your doing this style of poster they should be somewhat mirror images with the same size, similiar positioning and neither should cross into the others space.

i was thinking the same thing except i used brushes instead of c4ds. if it was a c4d i would've def added some blending modes to it to make it look nicer

Still should work or did you go onto the same layer as the black? Personally I always err on the side of to many layers.
