It's back!
After taking the year off I'm bringing the Grand Prix back. Getting some extra time to myself I'll be able to run this effecively unlike I did in 2021. For anyone interested just reply to this thread saying "I'm in" and please include your Twitter handle. If you don't have a Twitter consider making one since I will have a group chat there. Sign-ups are closed December 28th at 6:00 PM Est. Then I will randomize the draft order. The draft will start December 29th at 12:00 PM Est.

Here are the rules:


  • Highest score at the end of the year wins
  • Can't drop and add another fighter until they are on a 2-fight losing skid. Any other reason is a no-go
  • Once your prospect makes it to the UFC/Bellator and makes his/her debut you will take another prospect as a replacement
  • No drafting/replacing a prospect rumored to sign with the UFC/Bellator by a credible source
  • I will allow trades but both competitors must confirm with me before it's official
  • No former or current UFC/Bellator fighters
  • Once you are issued a replacement (two-fight skid/UFC or Bellator debut) you have a week from the fight to make your replacement to avoid stalling. If you fail to do that you will be eliminated
  • You will receive the full 25 points if your prospect gets signed to the UFC/Bellator during the draft.
  • Each competitor will draft six prospects. The last pick for each player has to draft a prospect with three pro fights or less
  • You will have a five hour deadline to draft. If you miss that you have to wait your next go around and pick two fighters. If you miss the deadline twice in a row you will be eliminated
  • The draft will be snake style
  • May 1st I will cut the players with the three lowest scores
  • October 1st I will cut the players with the five lowest scores


I will post the scoring criteria before the end of the week.
