After what seemed like a small eternity to me, Season 12 begins Friday. The fight card is stacked, and I can't wait to watch it. I am experiencing a good deal of anxiety over it though!

Every season, I try to get top score, top wagers, top camp, top everything! So there is that self imposed pressure. In addition, my real life wagers have really been taking off, in spite of losing on UFC 140. I'm up about 1500-1600%, which is roughly the average percentage of increase in my fantasy bankroll the last two seasons. Needless to say, I want to keep it going. So there is more pressure...

Anyone else get the pre-UFC jitters?

I know how you feel, P$. I'm the same way. The week leading into the event, it's all that's on my mind for the most part. Thinking about the match-ups, my picks/wagers, side games, etc. Constantly going over it in my head. MMA fantasy and betting is one of my favorite past times, so I try to do the best I can. At the same time I'm trying to cram all the new information that week concering the event such as fighter interviews, predictions, statistics, etc.

This sums up how I feel before an event.

No anxiety here. Just pure excitement.

My main goal in any season is to be in the top 100 for points. I'm ok with top 150, but anything less and I am severely disappointed with myself lol. I've never really cared about wagers, I really only started wagering once I joined this camp because wagers obviously count towards camp ranking.

I am incredibly immune to irritability, and stress. But Anxiety.... i'm in that boat with you most of the time.

This event though, easy money. Brock and Cerreone is going to tank everybody's but my event score.
