Hey guys, I opened a side game similar to this in my camp and lets just say it didnt exactly take off. I like the idea since it seems constantly engaging..

Basically its a player v player betting challenge in which each member has 15 points to start and can post challenges or propositions of any kind prior to a ufc event and the first opposing player to accept the challenge is locked in. The value of the bet is negotiable within a 1 to 3 point range for each bet.

For example prior to UFC 142 I could post the following challenges:

- Johnson beats Belfort (3 points)
- Aldo vs Mendes ends in the 1st half of the fight (2 points)
- UFC 142 will include less than 6 decisions (2 points)
- etc

Then once posted any other player could accept a challenge or attempt to alter or renegotiate one of my challenges as well as post their own...

"Player A" posts:

"In response to trevail's post, Ill take Diaz over Cerrone for 3 points (*CONFIRMED) and would do less than 6 decisions for 3 points instead of 2?"


By adding the (*Confirmed) it will make it easier for me to track bets and keep score after each event. If you lose all your points you are eliminated and who ever has the most points at the end of the season is the champ. Also, I was thinking of adding one "pool bet" for each event which would be a question with multiple possible outcomes and each player willing to take a chance would commit one point with the winner taking it all.

Pool Bet Examples:
How and it what round will Etim v Barboza end? (no repeats)
- possible answers: Etim UD, Barboza 1 KO, Etim 2 SUB etc.....
With out going over, how long will the shortest fight of UFC 142 be?
- possible answers: 12 seconds, 1 minute 3 seconds etc..........

Depending on interest I was thinking about capping the game at approximately 12 players so that it doesnt become to difficult to track.

What do you guys think? Let me know if your in or if you have any recommendations.

I almost forgot that some camps struggled with finding Sidegame players, PjMy is the best camp for sidegames! Home of all the best sidegames in terms of quantity and quality! It'll be easy to find 12 gamers from the PjMy, myself included.

On that note! Sign me up!!!

Maybe it'll be the first time me and Ray go head to head on something

Final Points:

- Limit will be 12 players with 15 points each to start, players will be able to join in even after the challenges have started until we reach 12.
- In order, to give everyone a fair shake to find the game and enroll we will hold of posting/accepting challenges until the floor opens at 8 pm EST on Tuesday.
- All challenges will be locked in once confirmed, unless a fighter pulls out or a fight is cancelled.
- The floor will be open until 12 pm EST on Saturday the day of the fights.
- I will post 1-2 "pool" questions as close to the opening as I can.
- Good luck to all!

- Bubbles took 21 minutes 35 seconds

Bet 142B: Who will win the "KO of the Night" bonus? No repeat answers. (1 point to enter, winner takes all)

I'd like to set up a little pool, its 1 pt to enter and you have to pick the fight on the card you think will be the shortest.

The winner will be the shortest fight out of the fights selected.

I will pick Oliviera and Gonzaga

I'll enter that pool.

Palhares vs. Massenzio is my guess for shortest fight.

I'd also like to set up my own pool.

It's 1 point to enter and we'll guess what submission Palhares pulls off in his fight with Massenzio. If he doesn't win by submission all points will be returned. Points will also be returned if we don't guess the correct submission.

I'll take the obvious choice, which is by Heel Hook. Any takers?

I'll even put in 2 points instead of 1 since I got the first pick. Everyone else that enters only needs to put in 1 point.

This is getting good! Could you guys please edit your posts to show any confirmed bets and who took the challenge. It will help tremendously for score keeping.

Hey Budge Now about my 1 pt vs your 2 pt, you have Palhares via sub and I have any other way the fight ends?
