WHAT IS IT?

In short, it works similar to the Tapology Survivor game in the sense that it continues every week until there's a winner (or in some cases in this game no winner) but instead of picking your fighters, get assigned a random fighter from the upcoming UFC card and hope they win. 

FORMAT:

1) To enter, simply say that you want to enter at the start of a new game. The length of the games depend entirely on how long it takes to either find a winner or eliminate everyone.


2) Then, you will randomly be assigned a fighter from the upcoming UFC card. This will be decided by me using this site I found wheeldecide.com and putting all the fighters names on a wheel and going through the list of players one by one and spinning the wheel to decide which fighter they get. I'll make a very low quality video of the draw and post it here to show I'm not deliberately messing with anyone in particular. It might mean that some people end up with the same fighter but that doesn't affect the game as it's more of an everybody fighting for themselves kinda game rather than a head to head game.


3) If your randomly assigned fighter wins their fight then you're through to the next round. This happens every week until there is only one left and they will be the winner. In a unique twist to make the game as stupid as possible, if everyone eventually goes out, then nobody wins the game and the game will be marked in the record books as "nobody ******* won" or something like that. For example, if there are 2 or 3 people left and they all have losing fighters then nobody wins the game. I feel this also adds weight to the game as you have to be REALLY lucky to be a winner as you literally have to be luckier than every other competitor to be the only one left standing!


WHAT DOES THE WINNER GET?

A place on the list of winners that will be displayed on the opening post of every new thread and their current AV put on the new game poster (see below) in the middle of the horseshow so they effectively become the poster boy/girl/other for the new game!

Any questions, just ask! And remember, please don't take this game too seriously! I mean, it's practically a satire of the Survivor Game when you think about it lol!

I'm ready to get screwed over by the MMA gods. Hopefully I get Chris Curtis though.

So basically this game requires absolutely no skill or input to win in any way at all? It's completely random?

Yep, it's pure dumb luck! No skill at all! Even someone who knows literally nothing about the sport could win!

You want in?

@Cheeseball

I probably won't have the time on Friday night so it'll probably be tomorrow night. I was thinking of doing it as a video where I've got your names written down on on Excel sheet and I'll have the wheel open in a tab and go though the list and spin it and then type in what fighter they get. It'll be a fairly **** quality video but I thought lt'd be more transparent doing it that way and slightly more interesting as well. Kinda like the FA Cup draws. I'll also make a post that's a list of the matchups to make it easier for you guys to check but I'll post the video here first.

I'm ******* dreading the thought of trying to pronounce some of your usernames and fighter names lol!
