I thought it might be cool to work out some kind of MMA Fantasy League similiar to Fantasy Football...etc. and just do it here in the forums.

The Rules I was thinking is:
a roster of 10 fighters/no more then 3 per weightclass (UFC Fighters only...that way each fighter will have around the same amount of fights)
points will be
10 for a win
5 for a KO/SUB (extra 3 for round 1, 2 for round 2, and 1 for round 1)
2 for a Decision
-6 for a loss

we will keep track of each "Team" and roster in this thread/post, and after an event I will update each teams fighters that fought.

The first 5 people to sign up on here will have a team (and myself)
making 6 teams (60 fighters) total.

each member will have 24 hrs to make a pick, if 24hr pass, they will be skipped and have to wait until next time around to make thier pick.

2 spots left, and we have to figure out how to determine the draft order
ohiostate1016
12/23/07 10:29:46PM
Here's an idea. Why don't we determine the draft order by the percentages of picks from each member? The person with the top career percentage on picks would get the first pick, the second highest would get the second pick, and so on and so forth. After we determine the first round, we could have a snaking order. Or, we could do it by number of posts. But I like the first idea better.
Mayhem13
12/23/07 10:34:28PM
yeah I like that idea, percentage is probably the most fair way to determine it.

and we could do a snake order or whatever its called (thats 1-5 and then 5-1, right?) .. or we could do just regular draft....we will decide that once we get the last 2 members
ohiostate1016
12/23/07 10:36:09PM
Yeah, a snake order means that the person that picked first in the first round will pick last in the second round. The person that picked last in the first round will pick first in the second round. Basically, you're right. 1-5, then 5-1. That's really the only way to do a fantasy draft.
Mayhem13
12/23/07 10:42:14PM
yeah thats sounds good to me....we will do it that way.

are we going by career % or season % for draft order?
ohiostate1016
12/23/07 10:44:04PM
I think career % would be the best way to determine. I mean, others can chime in if they want, but that's what I think.

How about we add some rules? I don't think we should start the draft until we have a full list of rules. There are some I'd like to add:

+5 bonus for a title fight win
+5 bonus for a main event win
+1 for Fight/Sub/KO of the Night (determined from official UFC payouts)
No penalty for injury loss

i don't think the bonus pts for title fight or main event fight are a good idea.

i like the original pts distribution.
the only think is to add extra pts up to 5 rounds fight.
so 5pts for a KO or a SUB , plus ( extra 3 for rd 1, extra 2.5 for rd 2, extra 2 for rd 3, extra 1.5 for rd 4, extra 1 for rd 5 )

and an injuree lost is a real lost so minus 6 pts should apply.

ha, i use to do this with some friends in 6th grade with WWE. I think it worked better with that since there was a show each week.

This is a great idea though, I think there should be a site for this

Where is the guy that started this thread? Is he really up for this? It'll be a big task if he takes on organizing the league.

sorry about the delay there, I was gone for a couplke days because of the holidays.

but we can start this drat whenever you guys are ready, as longs as its completed in time..haha

Hot is up first, and then the rest of the order is the same as listed in the original post.

I like the +5 for KO/Sub/Fight of the night, and the +5 for a title win...but I dont think we should use the main event bonus...but thats just me, so if the rest want it then its in..

but the draft is on!!!!

Hot is up!
good luck
ohiostate1016
12/27/07 4:20:17PM
Yeah...let's not do the main event thing. The fight/sub/Ko of the night is good, but maybe it should be +3. And +5 for the title fights.
ohiostate1016
12/27/07 4:30:44PM
OK, here's the draft order (I'll try to PM the next person up if I can remember to):

hotroddttt
Tuvok500
Ohiostate1016

Mayhem13
John-Jobber

then the second round will be the reverse order:

John-Jobber
Mayhem13
gspfan
ohiostate1016
tuvok500
hotrodttt

and the third round will be the same as the first. get the idea? snake draft.
