Ok, here's the simple rules breakdown. Hopefully we get more players!
1) A Draft order is initiated between all players. A fantasy MMA “Draft” then ensues, with each player picking a roster of fighters. The fighters come from the broad range of MMA history, both structured or unsanctioned. IE: Mitsuyo Maeda, Bruce Lee & Dan Severn co-mingle with GSP (2010), Anderson Silva (2011) & Jon Jones (2012) on the same plateau of fantasy combat.
2) Each fighter is assumed to be in their physical prime – and given a full, uninterrupted training camp to acclimate themselves with modern day MMA (just to alleviate arguments about varied knowledge of skills over the last 100 years – so assume John L. Sullivan has had some takedown training before his big fantasy fight you book).
3) Once drafting is done – and your roster is complete – the goal of the game is to compete with other players to book the freshest, must-see card of all. Wins, losses or results are inconsequential; it’s meant to spark the imagination and wonder “what if?’ Sports fans and messageboard posters of all genres have wondered about these great sports hypothetical’s. Jordan vs Bird, Ali vs Tyson, etc… now’s your chance to do that from an MMA perspective.
Here’s a few examples of some match-ups that have come from this tourney:
• Dominick Cruz (2011) versus Mitsuyo Maeda (1904) for the Bantamweight championship
• Royce Gracie (1993) versus BJ Penn (2009), Welterweight #1 Contender match
• Brock Lesnar (2010) versus Dan Severn (1995), Heavyweight Grand Prix match-up
• Dan Henderson (2011) versus Tank Abbot (1996)
• Frankie Edgar (2010) versus Helio Gracie (1934) for the Lightweight championship
Any other interested players? It’s a very simple game to grasp…
