Hey everyone,

I just saw mmajunkie writing about this site and I thought it would be fun to try this out. I've never been a part of fantasy anything so I have no idea how it all works.

I love MMA, I'm between a casual and hardcore fan lol, because I mainly focus on UFC Cards and Strikeforce. I do watch some smaller events sometimes but I always catch the big fights :)

If anyone can provide me with any tips or places to learn more about this fantasy stuff, I would really appreciate it.

Looking forward to meeting some of you guys and talking about MMA stuff

welcome to the PG! tis a great place for news, podcasts, side games, off topic threads, and trying to get more than 5 points on your picks (which i sadly did once).

fight camps are a good way to talk with some people and discuss each upcoming card. joining one can really help your pick % (i hit at a 71% rate last season while only being a career 62%)... head over to the fight camp central subforum and make a want ad

on the left side are the links to where you can make your fantasy picks and wages, among other useful things.

the home page is always updated with the latest MMA news around the world. dont hesitate to make a post in there....but please refrain from fighter bashing, member bashing, and posting plain stupidity.

browse all the forums the PG has to offer. engage in discussions of all sorts. this site is a great way to kill time at work or at home

thats all i feel like contributing atm, but welcome and enjoy your stay

Why was MMAJunkie writing about the Playground? Are you able to provide a link to what was said/written?

Welcome!

You started just in time to get picks in for tomorrow's event. You can read the game rules here. If you have any questions after reading that, feel free to ask...there's some good people here that are always willing to help.

Welcome aboard

I believe OP is referring to a forum post.

I was half expecting a link to your own website. Welcome and good luck with the picks and wagers.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome

I can't find the original link...I was in the news section on google looking for updates on MMA for the week and then I saw a link to MMAJUNKIE speaking about this site.
