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!

Crazy how I'm still here. Also yikes that Smith vs Ankalaev take aged like milk.

Nice to know the voices of Tapology! As for hard-to-pronounce fighter names, the ones that took me the longest to get were Joanna Jędrzejczyk, Jiří Procházka and Michał Oleksiejczuk.

@PriscillaMello

The ones I tend to struggle with the most are the Russian and Arabic ones. There are some other more common ones I say differently due to my accent. Take Dana White for example. Everyone calls him "Day-na" but I pronounce it as "Dar-na" as in Dana Rosemary Scallon for instance.

I haven't forgotten this week's video, I've just not got round to it yet. It should be up in an hour or so!

3rd Round Draw

Apologises about the video being very hastily made but I was trying to get it done quickly between the PFL fights.

I'll take Luque. Better not be the Luque that showed up last fight though.

@Hippie

I can't see myself ever doing a podcast tbh as whenever I speak for any length of time, I tend to start tripping over my words and dropping a lot of "ums" and "ers" in the middle of sentences, especially if it's about anything that requires a bit of thought. That's partly why I try not to ramble on too much in these videos and keep my sentences short and to the point.

So is Bronco eliminated? A new wrinkle; postponed or canceled fights.

I think he said because it's purely luck and cause he wants the game to be ***** that counts you as losing 
Bye bronco

Yeah, I didn't specify it last time when I spoke about NC's and draws but the same logic applies. Being drawn with a fighter who's fight gets cancelled is unlucky so bye bye!

Going forward, it'll probably be easier to specify that in order to go through to the next round, your assigned fighter HAS TO WIN!
