Or would you just like us to continue coverage of the ever-growing UFC and (hopefully, depending on the Fertita's) Pride?

There are benifits and handicaps to this.

Benifit: More Events and therefore theres less downtime between events. Defitely a plus. This also makes the Season Leaders event more dynamic as the tide can change quicker.

Handicap: I really dont know much of the lower level talent coming up, and these would be toss up fights. Eliminating any possibility of doing well in the season leader situation next season. Also most dont have vid's on the internet yet for research. The IFL may be the exception just because it will be easier to familiarize the fighters as i can see them regularly.

i guess the 2 logical choices stateside are WEC and IFL, but i dont know that those are available to the people in other countries which wouldnt be fair to those living elsewhere. im for it, but only if the guys in the UK, Canada, and elsewhere in Europe and Asia have access to them. sorry if i left anywhere out of this but i cant remember seeing anyone from south america, africa, or australia on here.

I think this is a good idea because it would determine who truly knows the most about mma. And it will also force the one dimensional fans to expand on their mma knowleadge in orer to compete with the true mma fans.

Not until they are a bit more mainstream (if I dare use that word). I now have a shot at getting to know the IFL fighters from TV, but the WEC is only just starting.

I don't think most MMA fans know about the lower-level shows.

THe wait between UFC 70 to 71 killed me, anything to fill that time is greatly needed, especially if Pride stops doing shows.

If they stop doing Pride, I think you should definitely start with another org, but like cowcatcher said, it should be an org everyone can watch. As of right now, I think the best bet would be the Elite XC/Strikeforce/K-1 alliance.

An idea I had which kind of fits in here is having "bonus" fights that don't count as an event themselves, but would be available for wagering fantasy $ on. A lot of people want to put fantasy $ on Baroni-Shamrock for instance, so why not make it an available fight to bet on, but not have it count for points? This would be cool for the big IFL fights as well, like Mo Smith vs. Ruas for example.

Right, don't have it count towards the actual score, but have it available to wager fantasy dollars on.

I like Svartorm's idea. Something that I always thought would be cool would be two different divisions. The first division would only consist of major events like UFC and PRIDE (if there is another PRIDE event) and the second division would combine your points for the major events and small events. Other organizations I'd like to see are: WEC, BODOG PPV's, and IFL.
