I was looking for the Ken Shamrock/ Rich Franklin fight online and did a Yahoo search on it. The playgrounds video section came up with it. I lurked for a few months before I actually joined, and within a few weeks was recruited by Cornish and the MMA Army.

I was also looking for MMA videos. I believe I was looking for a Hughes video. I found a video on the Playground. From there I stumbled to the forums. I didn't agree with anything anyone was saying on the forums so I knew I had to join the site right away. I started my own fight camp but that didn't go well so I looked for a new fight camp. I also landed with Cornish in the MMA Army.

BSB got me to join after we were bullshitting on twitter on how bad the MMA section in a pro wrestling forum we both were active in started to die out.

Either a poster on ufcmania.com linked me to it or they had an ad for it. I can't remember exactly. I entered in the middle of the first season.

It must have been google or something, but I can't remember how I found it. It had be that, b/c I was checking mma news sites before here.

After the UFC took a break from their Fantasy Game the first time, I got tired of waiting for it to return, so I did a Google search. The rest is history.

I honestly can't remember.

I think it had something to do with with sherdog though. I lurked there for atleast a year without joining . Almost did until somehow I landed here

My buddies & I play a lot of fantasy football & baseball games.. one night we were all discussing the lack of good MMA/UFC online pick em games. The next day I googled "MMA fantasy games" & the playground caught my eye.. It was love at first sight. I told all my friends & they joined but eventually they all returned to the football & baseball games. Being the most MMA oriented of the crew I eventually dropped the football & baseball from my schedule & am now a PG junkie full time
haha

Googled Fantasy MMA, and got here.

I believe Rampage v. Chuck 2 was the first set of picks available.

I was searching for a new MMA fantasy game and MMAPG came up. Loved the forums so I packed up from Sherdog and migrated here.

when i was still in the military i had nobody intelligent to talk to about MMA. everybody was the kind of MMA fans where they just want to see somebody die in the cage. a fellow marine sent me here. i don't think he's even on here anymore, if so i haven't heard from him since '09.

Someone mentioned it in a forum for competitive gaming that I used to be a part of, believe it or not. I actually knew about it a month or two before I signed up, regret not signing up immediately now.
