Hey Guys,

Just introducing myself as a female fan... not a groupie! (ok, well, if I am... I'll never admit to it publicly). lol

I've watched every UFC since 129 after I made a bet with a guy that I could never pick the winners. Turned out that I picked 11 out of 12 winners on that card and right away my overconfident ego decided that I must be the new holy grail of MMA predictions. OK, so I haven't done *that* well on a card since then, but not bad considering I went from total novice (ie. clueless) to being able to debate the best fighters and styles with guys that consider themselves 'in the know'.

About me: I'm a petite blonde, write erotica, professional dancer (not stripper). Yeah I know, both fighters and fans tend to love me right away. Shhh...

I'm not sure what the 'typical female fan' is like... but I'm happy to be one.

Found mmaplayground only recently so playing around with the site and enjoying it.

Any questions... just ask! :)

Cheers boys!

I've always wondered how Chael picked up women. Now I know.

Some how I think that KPro'ing doesn't involve any such motions, Kyle. I picture this as a more appropriate avatar for Kpro'ing

KPro's prop to my picture said "Just another Saturday night!"

Did that involve Big Game Hunter?

I was actually meaning to try and find my user manual this week.. Not sure if my Cabela's Big Game Hunter rifle is supposed to leak and burn when I pull the trigger to take down a moose.

Are you sure that's your rifle that's leaking and burning? Something tells me that you're not divulging the whole truth.

Considering there's a laser sight attached, I'm pretty sure that classifies it as a rifle.

Red discharge doesn't mean that it's a "laser"

I am pretty sure that they're only referring your "laser" in that definition.

Hey Dancing Doll! I have several questions:

1) Are you prepared for people to assume and insinuate that you are a man pretending to be a woman? If so, you're ready for the forums! I am sure you can appreciate some skepticism.

2) Your record is kick ass, for sure. And you appear to make picks for every fight on the card. However there appears to be a gap of events in your record. What's that all about!? You think this is a game? Some sort of Fantasy predictions and wagers game?

Welcome to the site.

A couple things...

1 - Utilize the forums. We have some of the most knowledgeable members of the sport that post here.

2 - Make sure you check out the podcast. If you're easily offended, I would recommend skipping last night's podcast!

3 - How'd you find us?

4 - Follow us on Twitter! @mmaplayground on @MMA_at_WORK

Welcome to MMA Playground



Thanks for some actual questions! :)

To answer the first... yeah, skepticism is fair. I'm actually a relatively well known personality in my "Non-PG" field. If you google "Ashleigh Lake" or "Dancing_Doll" in terms of "author" or "erotica" you'll see that I'm all over the place (twitter, LinkedIn, facebook, multiple sites, published in a female-writers-only book by a publishing house that confirms my gender cause I get the royalty cheques in my name etc). Sure I guess I "could" still be a dude, but it seems like an awful lot of work over the past couple of years to still be faking it, no? lol

And for the second Q: Yes, there was a gap. I watched the fights but missed the cut-off for making picks. I had some personal tragedy stuff going on in my life (you can find the details on my twitter but if I post it here it will probably just get the eye rolls).

And do I think this is a game? Uhm... yeah. I haven't started betting real money just yet, so I'm still in my learning curve. I make private bets with another member here (who first told me about the site) so it pushes me to research the fighters I'm not that familiar with yet, check betting-odds and make my picks. Since the girls I know IRL that are vaguely familiar with MMA tend to base their picks on "which guy is the hottest", I think I'm doing pretty good with my system so far! lol

I'll be first to admit, I'm a UFC-girl so far. I'm just starting to get to know the Strikeforce guys that are filtering over, but didn't really watch that or Bellator etc. I still have lots to learn but I have some strong opinions and favourites about who and what I've seen so far.

Thanks!

I just followed both on Twitter. I follow a lot of MMA-related things on Twitter already and a lot of follow-backs too. Gotta love Twitter...

I'm not easily offended... at all... lol.... so I'll be checking the podcast for sure.

And I found this site because it was recommended to me by another member (the guy who originally got me into everything). I definitely like the set-up!

I'll be checking the forums more often now for sure.

Awesome. I think you'll enjoy last night's podcast then! If you need info on how to listen to the archives or where you can listen live, visit THIS thread. Everything you need to know about it is there.

Don't forget to get your picks and wagers in for UFC 141 by 5pm. Good luck!

Well it's good to have you aboard! It would appear your system is working fairly well! I believe there are a couple other female members of the site who are active too.
