I have been inspired by Rabi's many draft style side games and decided to take a swing at it (with Rabi's blessing and help). The game will feature 6 (to 10) players and plays out similarly to Rabi's "Draft Project" side games with a little twist. I will run the game but not compete. More information will be available as we get going.

There are 3 main rounds in the game, each round 10 new fighters per weightclass will be introduced, flyweight will be introduced in groups of 6 and will not be heavily featured until later in the game. Players will proceed to bid on the fighters (10 in the first round of bids, then 9, then 8 and so on) with the highest bidder landing the chosen fighter. Players can stop bidding as soon as they are satisfied with their rosters. There will be maximums placed on total bid amounts per round. (I took the top 30 from fight matrix and replaced lesser know fighters with more relevant fighters)

Round 1 will consist of 5 cards of 11 fights each. The card will consist of predetermined fights in specific weightclasses. Players will submit a list of 5 fighters and the slot that they hope to fill on the card as well as a bid (bribe) for the slot if they think there will be competition for that spot. The two highest bidders will land the 2 slots in that respective fight. Additional rounds of bribes will continue until all slots are filled. The higher profile the slot is the better the payout will be. Both fighters will be paid the posted "show" money with the winner doubling up with a win bonus. Every player starts with $300k and will need to acquire fighters and slots with this money.

Here is an example:

Card 1 (slots will always pay based on the same percentage of what the main event pays, shown in brackets below)
Main Event - HW Matchup - $50k to show
Co-Main - LHW Matchup - $40k to show (80%)
PPV Slot 3 - MW Matchup - $30k to show (60%)
PPV Slot 2 - WW Matchup - $30k to show (60%)
PPV Opener - LW Matchup - $25k to show (50%)
etc, etc, etc

Example Bids:
MainEvent - Pat Barry w/ $11k Bribe
PPV Slot 3 - Jacare Souza w/$6k Bribe
etc, etc....

If my "bribe" was one of the top two I would then land my fighter a slot in the fight, obviously you wouldnt know who your fighter would be up against and you must try to leverage your bribe vs the possible payout since making the most profit is the aim of the game.

Fighter Rules:
-Fighters may only fight in the division they are introduced in (no weightclass changes)
-Fighters are cut from the game after 3 consecutive losses including if you get bounced from a GP (therefore taking a lower profile fight might be good after a loss)
-Fighters must rest for 2 events before returning in rounds 2 and 3, and rest for 1 card in the first round. (So in Rd2 if you fight on card #1, you may return on card #4)
-As the game progresses fights slots may have stipulations such as "fighter must be on 2 fight win streak" for a main event slot or "fighter must be coming off a loss" for a loser leaves town prelim. In the final round entire cards may have themes such as "Brazil v USA"
-I will attempt to keep the possible money won for each weightclass as even as possible in each round.

After the card is filled, all players will vote on every fight even if their fighter is fighting and once I determine the results we will then vote on FOTN, KOTN and SOTN which will be worth 60% of the main event show money. In the first round we would complete all 5 cards like this, before introducing the next batch of fighters. Round 2 will be 9 cards and round 3 will consist of 13 cards.

Grand Prix Tourneys
In addition to the previously mentioned cards, rounds 1 and 2 will include 2 randomly chosen 8 man tournaments and round 3 will house 3 tourneys. This will make for one tournament for each weightclass (HW, LHW, MW, WW, LW, FW and BW) with the exception of flyweight.
Payouts for tourneys will be based of the previous cards main event show money. You will make 100% of the amount for winning an opening round fight, 200% the amount for winning a semi-final and 400% for winning the GP title. (example: if the previous main event paid $50k to show and you won the entire tourney then your three payout would be $50k, $100k for semis and $200k for winning the final for a $350k payday) Slots will be randomly chosen and I will explain this process later. If we have 10 players then slots will be bid on with the two lowest bidders missing out on the tourney but landing a prelim fight (like an injury replacement match)
Fighters that compete in a GP will be benched for 1 card for every round of the tournament that they fight in. So, that's a three card rest for a fighter in the final and only one card if you don't make it past the first round.

Current UFC Champs are not eligible to enter tournaments, my hope is that this keeps the tourneys more interesting and on a level playing field. (Let's face it Anderson Silva wins every MW tourney ever, period.)
Aside from the payday, the winning fighters manager will also be given the choice of 2-3 additional bonuses (ranging from getting a fighter that otherwise would not be in the game like Couture or Hughes, a teammate being guaranteed a slot on the next card, getting to play match maker for a highly contested spot on a future card or whatever else I can dream up)

ALL VOTING AND BIDDING WILL BE HELD TO A STRICT 48 HOUR TIME LIMIT. However, everyone will get one free pass for going over or if you get it in before I am able to do an update you will go unpenalized. Missing the time limit results in missing that round of bidding or voting but will not result in a monetary penalty of any kind. Any stat holiday will double the time limit and I will be open to any discussions anyone wants to have regarding postponements or wanting to send in your info ahead of time. We can make this easy and fast paced.


Let me know if you're in and if you have any questions post them here rather than PM'ing them since the info could help others. This is new to me but I have attempted to eliminate any holes in the game before posting this.

I'm gonna need to ask questions as well so although PF's reply isn't helpful to you at all. I'm in the same boat. Although I'm off to Ireland and won't be back till Monday so you can drop me out if that's too late etc

This is a little disheartening, I definitely hoped for more interest. At this rate jjeans we probably wouldn't be starting until Monday at the earliest anyways. Feel free to post your questions and we will get it all nailed down.

you gotta remember, a lot of guys are already in a few games & might not be able to handle the work load of an extra game. if i was in school this semester, i would have had to pass.

PM guys in other games or maybe even post the link in other games just to see if it'll pick up an extra person or 2.

Ok we have 4 players which I could scale the game down to if necessary, but I think we will wait until after this weekends OneFC and UFC events. I'll revamp rankings based on these events and hopefully we can land 4-6 more players by then.

Just a heads up, I made a few changes to the rules post regarding:

-Layoffs after a GP are representative of how far you make it in the tourney (I card layoff for every fight you enter in the GP)
-A fighter must now lose 3 fights in a row to be eliminated from the game (GP fights included)

We have 6 players now, hopefully a couple more before we start
