I know it's been too long. Been busy with the move and all. Here's a quick 10 question quiz.

- Feel free to comment or TTT, but PM the answers to me, don't post them in the thread!

- Props go to anyone who gets all 10 or whoever gets the most correct.

- NO FIGHTFINDER or Wikipedia, just your melon! ..on the honor system

Here goes:
1. At PRIDE 21, Fedor made his PRIDE debut. What did Bas Rutten and Quadros think Fedor might have trouble with? (BE SPECIFIC)
Striking on the ground (RINGS didn't allow striking on the ground) Kind of funny now since he's known for vicious GnP now. I also accepted Shilts reach since they did mentioned it in the broadcast

2. How much of the UFC does Dana White actually own?
10%

3. Before the UFC, Which Gracie made a public claim in Playboy that he was the baddest man alive and would beat anyone in a NHB match.
Rorion (1989 Playboy article) He's Rickson and Royce's oldest brother and co-founder of the UFC

4. Frye / Takayama, was one of PRIDE's most memorable fights, was never supposed to happen. Who was Frye supposed to fight?
Mark Coleman, who had to pull out with an injury

5. Who currently holds the best MMA record (statistically) of all active fighters? (Not the biggest record, the best)
Jason Reinhardt, Lauzon's next opponent. Filho has 16 and Bisping has 14

6. Name at least 2 fighters who have over 20 career (T)KO's
Travis Fulton (56)
Gilbert Yvel (27)
Igor Vovchanyn (25)
Wanderlei Silva (21)
Some of the most common answers were J. Horn (19), Cro Cop (15) and Liddell (13). Big Tim also has 16


7. Hayato Sakurai went undefeated for his first 20 fights. Who gave him his first loss?
Anderson Silva, via un. dec. in Shooto

8. All 3 of Quinton Jackson's sons have something in common (besides his DNA), what is it? (nothing to do with race)
They all have the middle name of Rampage (His daughter's middle name is Page)

9. Who sued the U.S. Olympic Committee in order to compete in the 2000 games.
Matt "the Law" Lindland Got a lot of Yoshida answers. Not sure if he sued the Japanese commission, but pretty sure he didn't sue the US!

10. Which fighter said, "My diet is just like Atkins, only with carbs"
BJ Penn

Thanks for trying everyone. The point of these trivias I've been doing isn't to make anyone feel like a "noob" or feel bad. I have to look up a lot of these myself. It's just for fun and to hopefully expand the knowledge of all you dumb ass TUF noobs.

There are some of the older ones at the bottom under "Related Topics" for those of you who joined the playground recently.

I think you should forget the honour system for these though and "allow" people to use the web.

I personally have fun hunting down the answers. Just a thought.

Not a bad idea. Maybe for next time.

Then hunt down the answers after you send the questions, but before you get the results. Its fun to try and pull obscure crap out of your head I think.

this quiz proved to me that i know too much useless mma facts. i guess after a solid year of watching old pride fights and soaking in everything about mma you could in a short time to catch up with the older fans pays off somewhere haha

I guess I don't have enough faith in society to believe the honour system is followed by 100% of all participants.

You have a point but what's the reward? Props, big deal. Also I try to make a few questions from videos or documentaries (like #1, 3 and 4) for example
Rush

True enough, but then again I just don't like the thought of people cheating even if the reward is trivial.

...using google.


I got 4/10 and I seem to be one of the better scorers of this trivia so I guess it was pretty hard.
I got the reach one, the KOs, A.Silva and the Law question.

Keep it coming with those trivias though. I don't care if others are using google. I just want to test myself and learn some obscure MMA facts.

i found it ridiculously challenging and i mostly took educated guesses on my answers. i swear i didn't use google, as last summer, to keep up with all of the pride fans, i had to watch every single pride fight. it took a while but i got through a good 80 percent of them. that is probably the only reason i got so many right, i actually completely guessed on the gracie question and i guessed rorian because the other gracies i knew didn't make sense and i had recently don a report about BJJ and he was one of only a few with a 9th degree black belt. i personally can't wait for the next one, as i a msure that i won't get this many right ever again haha
