I dont agree with moving UFC fights or cards to the Best Of The Rest game.

Seems like it is more of a way to gain better scores than to actually "lessen" the load


IMO if its a UFC fight or event than it should stay with the rest of them in The Big Show.

Its not like high profile fights/events that are in organizations other than the UFC get to make their way into The Big Show Game.


There has to be some sort of consistency. If it goes one way then it should go the other.

BUT with that being said, I again think that this has more to do with members trying to get better scores by putting lesser known fights/events in a whole different league .

This is the nature of the beast if you want to play a fantasy game soley dedicated to one organization (i.e. UFC)

I say deal with it or play the casual league

Don't mean to sound harsh, definitely not trying to be

No way

If its a UFC event it should be in the main game

For the "Casual League" it should just be UFC numbered events & Fox network main cards. For the "Big Show" it should remain all UFC cards because many Fight Pass cards are actually better then FS1 Fight Nights. If you start changing the rules with the constantly changing UFC structure then you're going to have to keep drawing lines in the sand which may end up running off many of the few of us left on here,

I like it the way it is. All non- UFC fighters try and make it to the Big Show/UFC weather they should be there or not is a different issue.

Like mentioned there's a Casual League. If the members don't know who those Main Card fighters are well they should find a different hobby. Try Fantasy Football or something.

If it's a UFC event, it belongs in the Big Show and Casual league.

I voted "no" and KOpower and LooseCannon make some very good points.

Since I'm cool with whatever, do I still need to vote?

Ahh fuck it. I went with no so I could see the results. I think it has to be yes or no. Picking and choosing fights will open a whole can of worms.

Ever since the Fox deal it's a UFC world and we're just livin in it. It is disappointing when the UFC is putting on regional fight cards with a UFC main and co-main. Even more disappointing is that "UFC caliber fighter" is alot broader than it really should be.

It's seems like I hear "It is what it is" alot when it comes to MMA. So, you know, it is what is, I guess.

I don't mind either way. I just think the UFC watering down their cards doesn't have to water down this game any further since it's currently tiered in a structure that would make sense for all of the actual big fights, regardless of promotion, to be part of a what's called the Big Show here and all of the regional level small fights, like the vast majority of UFC fights Saturday, to be in a group that is the rest. UFc could have a turd fight a puddle of piss, that doesn't make it big to me. Fights that are a noteworthy or significant are a big deal.

I went with no, and it appears my vote was overkill. 20-4. The tribe has spoken.

It is obvious that Bottom Of The Rung is in desperate need of enhancements. To me its kinda funny that the Big Show is the same league where you pick fighters from Jon Jones all the way to Pat Schilling. I had ideas in the past, but I'm at the point now where I don't really care. The site structure was/is split by organizations, your users are conditioned to such and will never accept major changes to the structure.

Well I must be in the minority because there is definitely over saturation & it's becoming a bit of a chore to be honest, having a Primary event where no one has heard of 60% of the fighters is a joke! there is only so much research you can do with fighters who have only had a couple of fights against other equally unknown fighters with no tape on either, doing well in most events these days is definitely more luck than skill I would even go as far as advocate only PPV's as primary events & all these crappy Fight Pass type events put into the Secondary.
