I found it really hard to vote as the cards all seem really close.

Ive gone for gspfan.

I cast my prestigous vote for Achillesheel

JZ v. Diego is a sick match-up and i honestly can say i never have seen that paired up in the dozen or so drafts ive been apart of.
Many great Lower weight match-ups drove this card.

Mayhem13 would get my second place vote.

Since this isn't a secret ballot, I don't think it's cheating to re-post my card, with the trimmings.

Gotta go for gspfan. Mayhem's card is a close second, but I think gspfan's ability to make stylistically exciting matchups edges out Mayhem's "fights we all want to see" approach. (AchillesHeel was third based on the main event alone.)

Its funny watcing you guys make your draft selections I was certain I'd be voting for either Rabi or Mayhem and I found myself puzzled at some of GSPfans choices.

Now that I've seen the final cards I owe an apology to GSPfan, thats one awesome card.

He gets my vote.

thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i thought for sure johnson vs alves and bisping vs marquardt would be enough to secure a few votes! not to mention jackson vs hendo 2 and vera vs crocop at heavyweight!!

Wow. Great cards by everyone. In the end, I'm gonna go with gspfan. There are some really, really interesting matchups on that card. I'm not too excited about the main event, but the rest of the card looks unbelievable.

Varner vs. Thompson would be a great war between two well rounded fighters.

Barry vs. Yvel would prove to be an amazing standup war.

Hazelett vs. Diaz is like a grappler's dream

Mousasi vs. Franklin is a fight I'd kill to see!!


Like I said- you guys all put on some awesome cards, but I gotta say gspfan's is incredible

Achilles gets the vote for sure, his card would answer the most questions on top ten rankings in weight classes 155 and under...

Yeah, I had wanted to do a "DREAM vs. the UFC" card after the Bantamweight championship, but wasn't able to pull it off. I spaced out on Penn, and Mousasi and Overeem went sooner than I expected them to, so I went after the Lightweights. Then at the end I noticed that Faber and Brown were still hanging around, but I think the Japanese featherweights might have hurt my card. They're well-regarded in rankings, but I don't think they're big enough names.

I am now gonna officially close the voting.

Thankyou to everyone who took part in the draft and thankyou to everyone who voted.

gspfan was a clear winner with 12 votes and was 6 clear of Mayhem13 and Achillesheel.

East Coast Pitbulls scored a combined vote of 5. Me and Mkiv were just leading you into a false sence of security, next time we will both hustle you.

Congrats and props to gspfan, Could the remaining 3 people pls prop gspfan as mentioned in the rules when we started the draft.
