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!

@****les

Just to clarify, were you just asking about the game or are you interested in taking part? Just asking as I don't want to have to say "****les" out loud only to find you weren't interested anyway lol!

OK, so I'll hopefully have the video made and uploaded in an hour or so. I'd have liked to have got it done earlier but **** hit the fan today and I know I'll have even less time tomorrow. Also had problems logging into my YouTube channel so I'll probably make a new one for that and as for the video itself, I'm just letting you know it will be a really **** quality one as I haven't had a chance to do a trial run so I'll be recording it unscripted, in one take at about 2am while trying not to wake my parents so it's not exactly gonna be top notch stuff lol!

1st Round Draw

OK, here it is! Like I said, it's very poor quality but it serves it purpose. The only downside is that I had all your names written in an excel sheet and I typed the fighters name next to them while making the video and I thought it would pick that up on the screen but it didn't unfortunately but by listening to the commentary you can still hear when your name comes up and you still get the joy of seeing the wheel of fighter names spin so you'll still be able to work out who your matched with! Obviously, I'll post a written out post with all the match ups so it's easier to check but I'll post the video first.

I'll take Marc Diakaise! He looked pretty good in his last fight against a tough opponent.

Definitely looking forward to more uploads from Pink MMA. 

As far as my pick is considered, I now have to root for Mokaev for my pick % and InnerG for this game. This is the kind of chaos that I'm here for.

@Those two little marks above the O in Brohm is called an Umlaut. Or sometimes a diuresis. It means you pronounce the vowel as a standalone sound. So the O in Brohm would be pronounced like the O in the surname O'Neil.

Heard it called Umlaut before but never diuresis, the more you know.
