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!

Through the 2nd round

Of the 15 entrants, the MMA Gods deemed 8 of you to be unworthy! This leaves the following 7 lucky bastards in the game:

  • Bronco
  • Casual008
  • Stephen Terry
  • Cheeseball
  • TARTARA
  • Baron Von Rattus
  • kushycake


Say a prayer, kiss your lucky charms, make a questionably legal animal sacrifice to the MMA Gods, or whatever you did to get through and I'll see you in the next round!

Draws and No Contests

After a few people have started screaming "No contest!" about the Curtis Blaydes VS Tom Aspinall fight (For the record, I don't agree with those guys. I picked and was routing for Aspinall and I'm slightly pissed off but these things happen in MMA sometimes) it occurred to me that I didn't mention in the original rules what what happen in the event of a draw or no contest involving a participant's fighter so I've decided that it will count as a loss for the purpose of the game. The logic behind it being that only the lucky should win and having your fighter involved in a draw or no contest would certainly be considered unlucky so out you go.

I don't know about that. I wouldn't be surprised if Smith knocked out Ankalaev. Btw @Stephen Terry its pronounced Anka-li-ev.
