This was an excellent game. Is there a way to play again or would we find that most of the results would end up the same?

Ive enjoyed running it, I will defo set up a new version and probably add a little twist so its not as predictable.

Would a tournament style make sense? That might take too long but as styles make fights, it might add some surprise and also might give more credit to some fighters who had unlucky first match ups or something like that. Just an idea.

Round robin style and then tally up the wins to find the winner. Ties would be broken with a fight against each other. That would do away with unlucky draws for some fighters, like a striker who happens to get a power wrestler like Fitch. Or maybe double elimination with all fights being determined at random (like the current version). This system would take less time than a round robin and some interesting results might follow.

Ive been thinking of a few different idea's< i like the idea of a 16 man grand prix, but what I thought I could do to make it a little bit different is.

1. Add the flyweight division
2. introduce UFC champions
3. Make it so that when we do our picks each player can only pick 1 fighter from any once country (place of birth).

That way we would get some different fighters in the Grand Prix
