You mean send a fight invitation to an email address of someone who isn't a member yet? No, but that's a good idea We'll see if we can make it happen within the next day or two.

Will we be able to make picks for UFC fight night on 1/25? Or are you planning on UFC 67 being your first event and that's why Fight Night hasn't been added?

The reason that the upcoming UFN isn't being featured is because this website has only been online since Friday night and it wouldn't give enough people a chance to sign up in time to win the $500 prize. Hopefully that extra week and a half between the events will result in a larger number of folks being able to join at this season's beginning thus being able to score points from all 10 events to have a shot at coming out on top of the point total.

Have you considered adding a search feature where you can find the friends you may have invited?

Nice job on the site so far. Good response for it being up for such a short time. It is going to get crazy here I will bet.

We're making a list of features and things that people have requested for the site so far and one of the items is to be able to invite someone to your fight camp via an email address (someone that hasn't signed up yet). Do you think that this would cover your concern or is there something more specific you'd like to see done? We're open to suggestions on ways to improve usability and/or to build out features that would make game and community more enjoyable.

In building the site our goal was to make something that most any mainstream MMA fan can easily play (thus easy "make your picks" type game, the very simple betting system for those who may not be used to odds +/- style wagers, etc). Even though you or I may love watching the fights that go on in IFL, K-1, or elsewhere, the fighters and events in those organizations aren't as widely recognized. If the IFL or someone else continues to up their stock in the future however, we would deffinitely put the option out there and ask all the members in a private vote or something like that if they would like these events to be included in the game. So for now, no IFL, in the future? Quite possibly.

Thanks for the positive feedback If the trend continues hopefully this site will grow into something special.

I think we should be allowed to pick occasional "super fights" that are not part of UFC or Pride cards, if both fighters are well known. For example, the Frank Shamrock/Renzo Gracie fight on Elite XC, Frank Shamrock/Phil Baroni on Strikeforce, and Fedor/Jeff Monson on Bodog. Comments?
