I agree 100% with BillsNewAccount. There are many good televised fights on AXS TV that should
be on League 2. Most recently well known Matt "Danger" Schnell lost a good close decision with hometown Elias Garcia in the opening bout & the co-main of 2 undefeated fighters "The Alter Boy" vs "The Librarian" in Freeman-Lindsey. I suggested both to Fleek, neither made the cut.

This upcoming XFC card on Friday looks to have several good fights on it, but only the Main Event squash match & an untelevised prelim of John Cofer are on it. Bellator & WEC vetetan with 65 pro fights Luis Santos and the co-main with Reggie Pena, who finished UFC veteran John Salter in his last outing, would've been great additions to the L2 event.

To be fair, I personally don't know who he is and out of all the people that send me L2 updates and fight requests, you are the only one to request that the fight be added.

All I went by was his 2-0 record. I don't have the time to do extensive research on every single fighter that is suggested.

I don't think anyone here believes Fleek is picking the fights he feels most confident about but I don't think there should be a member picking fights based soley on whether or not the fighter had a name.

I'd rather be picking new talent than washed-up has-beens. It seems silly to me to still be picking Baroni fights when he hasn't been good in over a decade. The same goes for freak shows like Bob Lashley.

My guess is most people would like to pick fights they can watch and I don't think a 30 man vote is indicative of what the thousands of playgrounders want.

I understand why the league was setup the way it is now but I think it's time for a change.




So a vote isnt the way to go, but your guess is the way to go on what 'most' people feel?



Easy there Tiger, a vote on a thread most people don't know exists doesn't seem like a fair way of deciding policy. I don't know how everyone else feels but I'd think most casual playgrounders would prefer making picks of televised bouts. That's why I suggested moving the vote to the main page.



Sure thing Muffin, but most casual playgrounders do not play L2



Prolly because they don't care about bouts they can't watch or follow Sugar Lips ;)




Yea Im going to bet thats not the reason friendo



I think most everyone is making some good points, but on the last point Im going to say the reason a majority don't play the secondary league is because even though to us all of MMA is a huge thing, in all actuality most fans are UFC fans and not MMA fans.

to be fair, thats the way with most pro sports

most MLB fans don't watch the minor leagues, college or Japan league baseball
most NHL fans don't watch the AHL, KHL, CHL (which composes of OHL, QMJHL, WHL), or NCAA hockey
most NBA fans don't watch the D-league, WNBA or the Spanish or Chinese leagues
most NFL fans don't watch the CFL or the XFL or NFL Europe when both existed
most car racing fans in North America watch Nascar, not F1 or Indy or drag racing
