I dont agree but I can understand people have different tastes. I think Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis are both meh, just ok nothing special, but people flip out over them.

Exactly, Just because i think she's not all that great in the face doesn't make me any less of a human...yes i would stick the lap rocket in her gut locker no doubt, But since i'm not a teenager i don't fantasize over chicks i'll never have........I do the adult thing and creep on girls i know facebook pics.

I think I have an outstanding win ratio in the ufc fantasy but others probably think my ratio is only "good."

You need to join Kpro's Van Club. Ask him for an invitation.

I have an ex that looks just like Mila Kunis, so everytime that I see her, I want to get up in there.

Well I cant speak for other people but ill give you my view on the banning thing.



Imo yes, there is fear mongering to an extent. The only reason i have come to that conclusion, is because of the drop in post numbers. Sure other factors have attributed to that, but I know of atleast one member who doesnt post hardly ever anymore (Aether) and he was banned. Now i dont know hisbl story, and tbh dont really know if it had to do with the banning. But from personal experience, when you get banned you dont really want to post anymore when your allowed back. I was banned a looong time ago for saying roy nelson punches like a girl. And at the time i thought that was so uncool. When i was allowed back i layed low and even took a hiatus from the site. I felt betrayed by the site that i had been apart of from the beginning. In the end i came back. And im glad i did. Ita really cool to still see members from back in the day. From when a time you werent known at all and didn't post much. I feel known now here. george112. not a very memorable username but an OG nonetheless!

all stuck around and i remember so clearly of a time when alot of them were relatively unknown


I dont frequent any other mma site. I love this site. I mean come on, what other public forum would I put my first and last names!!?? haha NOT ONE is the answer. And i do it because i genuinely feel like im apart of something here.



lol damn didnt mean to sound like a sentimental girlfriend but thats just how i feel about the PG



I haven't looked at the forums for a while, other than the spoilers thread to get updates, kind of crazy to see all of this has gone on while I wasn't paying attention.

My ban was well deserved. I felt the site was on a decline, a lot of the people I really liked from years ago had disappeared, and I did not like a lot of the new people coming in to replace them. Eventually I just started being an asshole, because I would rather get banned for talking shit to people like KFM than pretend to like him.

I also got more or less just talked a bunch of shit to by Kpro for saying "I don't see how anyone scored the fight in his favour" about his homeboy Diaz after the Condit fight, which greatly increased an already growing desire to stop following the rules and participating on the site.

As far as Rabi. I've read the two official posts, and frankly, competition or not, that guy probably provided more traffic for the site with his games alone than he could possibly take away, probably won't be a great move IMO. I don't have access to the actual numbers, but I can't imagine that his games didn't provide a large chunk of the traffic, lately in particular.

Maybe a couple of people will pick up a game or two, but consistently running even 1-2 of those is a massive time drain for basically no reward. Anyone who picks up his games will think it's a great idea until 3 weeks in when people are not replying, not logging on, people are complaining when you don't update the thing 25 minutes after the event is over, bitching about any mistake you make and you think "fuck this shit, not worth my time."

I only realized all of this was going on because he wasn't updating a game I follow, and when I checked his account said invalid ID.

You basically just said what I wanted to say but in a lot smarter way than I could ever say.

I gotta say .. while I am watching Ufc 126 on tv and Ufc Brazil tuf episode on the computer at the same time
The only fantasy I do is on this site

Tapology does intrigue me. And believe me I get quite a lot of offers from the Ufc fantasy games on Ufc fight club from members trying to recruit me for their camps

I'm pretty loyal and I only have time for one fantasy site
I do think this is the best site for it
