Dream's hosted 5 events now. Is there any chance we'll be seeing it as part of the Primary league anytime soon?

Please? I love you.

I pretty much agree...

The only problem I see is that the cards have been pretty unstable. A lot of fights scratched/switched... a lot of fights added practically during weigh ins. I think the main thing the site is looking for is stable cards for the primary league. As of right now, it would be hard to keep up with all of the changes.

I have to disagree. Every show they put on seems to have at least 2 late editions which the mods dont have to time to put on the card, and even if they did to many people would miss picks becouse of the short notice. That usually leaves us with like 6-7 picks to make which hardly seems worth it.

Id rather see the WEC in the primary league than dream.

I'd be okay with that, too. The Primary league needs SOMETHING, though.

So, I take it I'm not the only one who failed to make picks for all of the DREAM fights? I think I picked 7 fights and when I was reading the results, I was like, "What the hell? That fight wasn't listed when I made my picks!"

I think they should be, and about the late additions, they're no worse than Pride was, the mods just gotta be on their toes

but i agree, the primary league needs something besides the UFC, we need another org to be included so that us that watch other orgs have our times to shine, not just people that watch UFC only.

Yeah i only made 7 picks, but one of the mods said earlier they didnt put the other 2 fights up becouse they where made after the cut off point which is like 12 hours before the event. I agree with the princible though, itd be nice to have something else to pick.

Like npayant said though, dream just seems to be a little to unstable. I guess pride was kind of the same deal though sometimes so who knows.


Edit - Ha, second time somebodies just beat me to the post

I'd like to say yes, but given what happened in the couple weeks leading up to today's card, no.

I've said it before about this and I'll say it again...WEC.

yep WEC should be the one added and think it has a bigger audience than dream.

If Affliction plans to keep their Fight Organization up and running, i think that'll be the first org to be moved from secondary to primary. everything seemed a little off with affliction though...like the weigh-ins, those were a mess. But the fights and the fighters were top notch.


and it would be ridiculous if Dream AND Affliction were kept in the secondary league and seeing the likes of Fedor, Barnett, Aleks, CroCop, Lindland, Rizzo, Sylvia and Aoki in the Secondaries...

They won't be kept in the Secondary League if they run like a professional league. It's just crazy to announce fights the day of the weigh in. Sorry, but that's not professional.


Affliction has to keep it up and not say, "We'll do 3 fights and go from there." If they're in it for the long haul something might happen. We dropped Cage Rage because it was just getting to crazy with them.

Some good points on either side. Personally I'd like to see Dream in the primary league. Right now it might as well be called the UFC league.

Then again, it's just a game so it really doesn't matter

Dream definitely needs to lay off the late additions and scraped fights before they're added.

If Affliction consistantly puts on cards of that quality, I'm sure they'll be there in no time. They had one fight not go down because of something out of their control, and they found a decent replacement to boot.
