Welcome Brown Stars! As you may have noticed, MMAmania.com has undergone this wonderful revamp in aesthetics as well as functionality - So what better way to celebrate than to revamp our league!? I spent a little time last week playing with some ideas for colours and everything else - They seemed to be well received. I will continue on with this sleeker look, bringing the Brown Star right into the 21st century(remember when that sounded futursitic?! not that long ago...) but not only that I would like to take this opportunity to welcome some members to the fanpost....
There was a bunch of Assholes who started this whole fantasy league idea, until ONE asshole decided to just fuck off and ignore it - never to be seen again. Magicmike - dont worry I wouldnt blame you at all - in fact I blame Greg Jackson but I'm not going to get into that. The UFC 151 thing fucked up my fanposts for Brown Star and it became hard to find the motivation to keep it going but here it is, we're 5 events in and the tables are starting to take place so from now on, with all of your acceptance of course, this league will be known as the Brown Ass League and will contain BOTH the Brownstar and Asshole Squads playing side by side - I'll try keep up the fanposts as often as possible but now I have all the scoring worked out it shouldnt be too much extra work to include 10 assholes.
So here we have it - The Brown Ass update beginning with BrownStars and moving onto Assholes:
Wow... not a great day for the two Brownest stars in the league. The Scarnon Collective were dealt a sharp blow when Michael Johnson knocked Danny Castillo's lights out - Dont get me wrong I know Johnson has that boxing there but... I was just soooo sure on Castillo for this one!
Sanabria had a nerve wrecking round or two in the main event as Silva and Browne traded kicks and punches around the cage - A great affair that could have stopped at any time and Silva capitolises on Browne's shaky legs to put him away for good. Another 5 points lost for another Brown Star this week. Results:
And the teams as they currently stand:
And as for the Assholes, here you will find the team list as transcribed from your last two fanposts for the now defunct "A League":
You will find some text in a weirdish purply colour(it looked alright in excel lol) with a star next to their name. This indicates this fighter has changed weight class and in order to retain them and for them to be eligible for their next fight you will have to drop a fighter from the corresponding weight class and pick another up... Sounds convoluted? For example, Wisetoad had both Igor Pokrajac and Vitor Belfort at UFC 152 and had to drop to just one LHW and choose a free MW before the event. He chose to keep Belfort and drop Pokrajac. With Bubbles' points I have counted Vitor as LHW as there was no clash with Pokrajac but the rule will remain the same in the future.
And results... These Assholes have really been putting a dent on our scores... Well no - ONE asshole is taking us to shame! ShivanTiger sitting pretty at the top of all the assholes!!! UFC on FX 5 was dominated for points by the stinkman with Ellenburger coming to a casually cool earned victory by decision against the ever boring Jay Heiron. The main event was where it was really at though with poor Kimura suffering from Travis Browne's first loss due to a bone shattering knockout straight to the jaw from the Big Foot himself. Just gotta say I really enjoyed that KO!
As for each and every event I'm not sure how the fanposts will go - there may be one post per two events or something but we'll run with it and see how it goes. Oh the scoring is a little different... I have added in a -1 to losing a title fight instead of -1 for being finished in a title fight. THIS is how we have scored the BrownStar the whole time - a loss is a loss... And dont fucking argue about it anymore it's how I'm scoring it - its fair and its even and I dont see anyone else bothering to keep this shit going!
One thing I would like to be respected though; ANY substitutions will need to be declared on these fanposts. They will need to be made on the most recent fanpost and more than 24 hours prior to the next event(up until weigh ins is good for me). They will not be immediately reflected in the team lists but will be in the following fanpost. After all Im just a normal working guy who spends half of his working day on Mania - I cant spend the other half of it on here too!
Sound off you stinky Brown Ass Motherfuckers!
