Potato's gay little Fantasy MMA Experiment

Alright maniacs, I decided to make my own version of Fantasy MMA, sort of like Kounterleague; but with a different set of rules. Rather than take the traditional approach of picking fighters by events, I want to take fighters over a course of events like any other system and have a draft.

The events included that are available for the draft are fighters fighting in events between UFC 168-UFC 169 which are UFC 168, UFC Singapore, UFC Atlanta, UFC Fox 10, and UFC 169.

How’s it Work: In this league, there will be 8 or 10 teams. Each team will have to choose their fighters in a draft of eligible talent. The team with the highest amount points scored in the 5-game season wins.

The Draft/Lineup: The draft will be in snake-order, and there will be a total of 8 rounds. In the draft, teams must select to the accordance of the lineup listed below.

Lineup:

HW/LHW 1

MW 1

WW 1

LW: 1

FW 1

BW/WBW/FLW

Utility:2

Utility position can be any fighter from any division.

Takedowns: 11(55 pts)

TDD: 1(2.5 pts)

KD: 1(5 pts)

Reversals: 0

Total Points: 191

Scoring isn’t always that nuts haha, Cain’s just a beast!

So who’s in, I wanna try and get 7 other people to try this experiment.

If people are interested, I’ll take first come first serve and I’ll make a thread about the draft with a ranked list of eligible fighters and we’ll draft on that mania fanpost. Also going to make a shitty website to keep track of the standings

If you want to tweek the scoring I’m open to opinions.
