Welcome to the Playground!

Just an FYI - I've gone ahead and moved this to the appropriate forum (Introduce Yourself).

No problem. I am just finding my way around this playground. It is a maze in here.

Welcome KFM. Good luck with the picks and wagers. So let's hear who your favorite fighters are. I'm more of a Andy Wang, Kalib Starnes guy myself

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

This has been the only MMA site that I haven't been disappointed in, and I've been through 5-6 different sites. All I can say is check it out for yourself for a week or so and see how your feeling it. Be warned, though. There are very intelligent posters here, and if you look for a fight about certain MMA subjects I'm sure someone would be happy to oblige and give you a run for your money.


Welcome to The Playground.



I am not worried. I am how would you say it ...- well rounded hehe. I have been following the sport ever since the days of Shamrock and Gracie. What I do not know, I make up for it with my wit and intelligence and google helps a lot too.

To be honest, I can play in the roughest of all playgrounds and in the most prestigious of playgrounds. I have posted all over the internet boards and there is nothing I will not be prepared for...

My main concern is I would like decent traffic and overall good and intelligent posters who will be good sparring partners.



Pretty sure you've found yourself a good home then. This site has everything. I've been all over the mma forums, mmajunkie, mmamania, sherdog, bloodyelbow, hell, everywhere and this is by far the best site for discussions. Not much trolling going on here, which is great. But don't take my word for it, search around and I'm sure you'll see it for yourself.

I don't see you leaving anytime soon friend so welcome to the Playground and enjoy the stay. Also, I ask this to almost all the new guys, who is your favourite fighter?

LOL

A few of my favorites are Fedor, Couture, Mir, Sakuraba, Faber, Big Nog and Machida.

Fighters who are growing on me at the moment are Overeem, Cain, Hominick, Bones, and Pacquiao.

Even-though I do have favorites, I try to remain objective when discussing upcoming matches. For example, I predict Nelson to prevail over Mir due to two reasons.

1. Mir has minimal take down abilities.
2. Cardio may be the biggest factor in this fight which will definitely favor Nelson.

I hope this is the site. I am tired of moving around. Everywhere I have been to I am well received, but things just turn out sour after a while.

As far as my favorite of all time, I do not think I have one. It is difficult to choose one and leave another behind. I'll give you three names:

Fedor, Couture, and Sakuraba

Those are three pretty powerful names in mma right there, good stuff. I agree with you. I actually spent almost a year just using the bloodyelbow forums until I realized it was not the place for me (being banned helped that, lol.) Once you get yourself involved with the side games, the forums and the fight camps you'll be hooked.

I just recently gave cameldog a try. That place is filled with scums. I like humor and fun and sometimes flame wars , but there needs to be some sort of balance which cameldog did not have.

But anyway, I hope this site meets my requirements.

One more thing: I finished making my picks for the entire lists of fights. How do I submit it or do I just leave it alone?

Just leave them alone. Your picks don't actually lock in until the day of the fight. You can check who gave you props by looking at the my props tab in the header. It's in yellow.

Thanks...

You guys have been very helpful and accepting of new members. I am sure I will have more questions in the coming days and or weeks.
