I googled the word "greatness" and two topics came up.

1) Chael Sonnen
2) MMAPlayground.com

The rest is what they say CHAELhistory

Someone mentioned fantasy mma on another website like, mmaweekly or something like that, looked up the playground, and have been here ever since.

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.

when it first started up I think I google'd online MMA game and this came up. I've been here ever since. But that was with my first account.

I believe I found it through mmamania.
But I waited like a month or so to start the fantasy game.
Very first event I went 9-0. Over a hundred events later I have only gone undefeated a few other times

The year was 2007, it was a time of sexual exploration and experimental drugs....ok not really but it was 07'. I think I searched MMA news and the PG came up, stayed for the news, eventually got into the forums, and sucked royal ass at fantasy picks. Something happened, we will call it a full circle of organized crime and I went into hiding like Jimmy Hoffa. When the dust settled, Adrenaline rose from the ashes like a retarded bird of prey.


True story.

I was a poster on Bravo's MMA forum (Bravo is a now defunct TV channel here in the UK which used to show UFC events) with the likes of Rabi and CornishMMA, among others.

I think somebody mentioned it on there one day, i joined up and i'm still here today.

PS: My memory is shocking, is anybody else still around who was a member on the Bravo forums ?

I'm pretty sure I saw someone mention it on Sherdog. I was intrigued.

A guy that I bet on UFC with regularly got me to join (just as another way to bet, using the points).

I didn't check out the forums until a few months later though, when I had some time on my hands and major insomnia after some 'bad life stuff' went down.

During one of many username switches and IP bans from Sherdog,while I was posting midget porn and tranny pictures in my OT forum hangout, someone posted a link here and within a few months I had left Sherdog altogether. Never really intended to talk MMA; I've always been an OT forum poster.

Googled fantasy MMA, really liked the place but DC ruined my comfort zone so I've never fully gotten back into the site since his ridiculous threats of banishment.

I like MMAcca found this site through the Bravo forum and the joined the Bravo Fight Camp.

To answer MMAcca's question, there are a few members from the old Bravo fight camp in my camp, the ones that come to mind are, trollking, tattflash and Lucas.

Cheers Rabi, still quite a few Bravo forumers about then
