Yo, 

I've posted similar things in random topics over the last few months, but I wanted to start a thread to keep it somewhat organized. I'm always on the lookout for new events to enter into the database for you guys to make picks on, as long as I can get reasonably accurate fight cards/updates as well as reasonably prompt results. 

Wake, R1zia, and Soccerkick are constantly commenting on my profile page with updates to upcoming regional cards, which is awesome. Feel free to hit me up there as well, but try to keep comments on my profile page related to changes or updates you've found to cards we've already got in the system. This thread is the spot for suggestions for events we don't currently have in the system. 

General Rules:

1) Post any upcoming fight cards you're interested in making picks for, excluding Asian events like Deep, Shooto, and Pancrase. We're still figuring out the logistics of covering that market in greater depth. 

2) Try to keep suggestions to regional cards coming up within the next month, so suggestions in December should concentrate on regional December and January cards. 

3) Don't bother posting events you've seen on the Sherdog and MMA.com databases, as I've likely seen them as well and they're either in the planner or aren't being considered. This thread is for the events that might fall through the crack. Maybe you found it on a site with good regional coverage or on a specific regional promotion's website. 

4) If possible, post as much info as you can find on the card, including links to where you found the info.

Let's see what you guys can dig up to make my job easier (or harder, depending on how you look at it.)

it surprises me that there isn't an exhastive database for this. It is strange how mma organizations operate independantly of one another

This card has some fighters we have picked in the past (Bryan Baker, Jason Lee, Josh Goldberger and Tito Solis)

Excellent find, SoccerKick. Can't believe I didn't come across info for that card. It's definitely a solid one. 

Everyone else, SK has just set the bar. Apparently people with the initials SK (even if they aren't their real initials) have a leg up in this field.

Sherdog hasn't updated the full card yet but they have it in the link below, it's pretty easy to figure everything out.

We've been staying away from Deep, Shooto, and Pancrase, but it looks like Pancrase has easier cards and results to come by. I'll probably start covering it with this 2012 Progress Tour season. 

Strange that the round structures are so inconsistent on the Pancrase cards. They seem to fluctuate between 2 and 3 rounders.

Usually title fights are 3 rounds but it says it on the top left corner how many rounds it will be. Will be looking forward to you guys adding them. Thanks.

@SK: Yes, I'll hopefully be adding that later this week. Results would be awesome, as always.

@Legz is all about the Japanese shows. Good stuff but tricky logistically-speaking. I'm going to get that Pancrase Progress Tour card in at the end of the month and I'm also going to get this Shooto card in, since Sherdog seems pretty consistent about getting results for them. 

@SK: There are some decent regional names on that card. I sent an Email to the promoter asking for more info, and if we can get the fight card by next week I'll certainly put it in there. Keep your eyes peeled for any news. 

As always, thanks a lot for the research guys and I'll try to get everything in that you post here.

Not sure if this is legit but just saw a fighter tweet about fighting on this card and found this website, haven't really heard of any of the fighters on the card but here is the info if you want to try and add it for next week
