I think you guys should stick to events that most everyone has the opportunity to watch live (or almost Live). It takes the luster out of the game when you are unable to watch and follow the fighters that you have chosen. I'm down with live IFL events for example, but an IFL event that is not show live, should not be included.

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



YES....too many toss ups for up and comers eliminating accuracy from skill and making a bunch of educated guess choices. but i would still like to be able to bet on people like ben rothwell, etc.

Bodog, srikeforce and other little shows that have no backbone to stay in existance should not be on here, however cage rage, k1 hero's and the ifl would be a good idea. Make sure cage rage is added as us brits are america's closest allies. Our version of the ufc needs to be included.

For sure the WEC should be in the next one! I really enjoyed the WEC free fight on VS and think that would be the perfect one to add.

I think adding more orgs will do more harm to this site,than do good....


For people that want more orgs,and they get it,its just icing on the cake,But....for those that didnt want more orgs,and you go ahead and add more you are just sticking your finger on the cake and spitting on it........so why not just give everyone the same piece of cake so we can all enjoy.


so in other words....why fix something if its not broken?

Would you like to see fights from other MMA organizations (IFL for example) on the site for season 2?

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



I absolutely think other promotions should be included..... or this is only a Zuffa game. There's already great talent in orgs like EliteXC, Bodog, K1, Shooto, ect.... It could be a great opportunity for casual fans, or UFC only fans to learn more about the sport by causing them to research fighters that they have never heard of. Of course this will give savvy fans the edge, but isn't that what fantasy sports are all about?

the bigger shows, not wec and maybe ifl..

i vote for BODOG, K-1, and the ELITEXC corps.. (i'd actually want to see betting on baroni-shamrock!!)



Bodog K-1 and EliteXC would be nice.

If you're gonna make events available going by the fact that they can "be viewed by everyone" just take note that you have members here from outside the USandA.
I'm in Japan, and I don't have TV access to any event outside Japan. Gotta DL it.
I can see Shooto and HERO's no problem.

For what it counts, I'd like to see some of the larger orgs be included.
Cage Rage for example.

With the new System in place for season 2. I see adding more orgs being a little bit of a mess. I think if you were to add new orgs you would have to leave the prizes to the UFC and Pride(if it returns).

I think the best org to add would be WEC as it seems as it has the most legs to stick around.

I think the site if good how it is now. The other MMA organizations are still too small, not enough skill (that i know of)....The main problem is that i haven't really seen any of the fighters from WEC of IFL, i wouldn't know who to bet on. Other people might know a lot about the alternative MMA leagues but i can only see UFC because i can rent it on DVD.
