Tried this about a month ago but got very little interest, but i would still like to do it so i will try it again.

This draft is to make the best PPV event, you will be making one match from each weight class(LW, WW, MW, LHW, & HW) and a wild card match(anything you want) so we will be drafting 12 fighters total. More than likely I will find a few judges to rank the PPV's, the object of the PPV's is to night only have fights of significance but also exciting fights. looking for 4-10 people

My fight card so far in no order.

Tim Sylvia VS. CC
Robbie Lawler VS.
GSP VS. Matt Serra

Ravens1991
02-15-2008, 04:01 PM
They are still on the board I couldnt get them, but I think everyone would enjoy Hammill kicking Bisping ass again.

UKfan
02-15-2008, 05:13 PM
Since none of you guys have taken a FW, I'm just going to make my final pick, FW Urijah Faber.

HW Fedor Emelianenko vs Randy Couture
LHW Wanderlei Silva vs Houston Alexander
MW Rich Franklin vs Matt Lindland
WW Matt Hughes vs Jon Fitch
LW BJ Penn vs Gesias Calvancante
FW Kid Yamamoto vs Urijah Faber

I'm an idiot and I took 3 LW's AND 3 WW's, so I want to get rid of Guida and Shields, and I need to take 2 MW's. I'll take them after you guys are done, since it's only fair I do so, since it was my mistake.

Ravens1991
02-15-2008, 05:28 PM
u can make those changes I did w/ Hammill and Bisping.

UKfan
02-15-2008, 05:29 PM

Fenikz, you appear to be a match short? You haven't put Diaz vs Gomi on, which would be a great match lol.

and I think Ravens has one fighter left to select? Once we get them all done we should post them in the MMA thread and see what people think.

We need to get these judged.

fenikz
02-17-2008, 10:31 PM
all right i sent out some PM's and made a post in the MMA thread, try make these events in the format i did so they can be judged evenly

ccB
02-18-2008, 01:46 PM
First Place: UKFan
Second Place: Fenikz
Third Place: Ravens 1991

Reasoning:

UKFan: Pretty easy decision for me. IMO UKFan has the top 2 matches all MMA fans dream about in Couture vs Fedor and Kid vs Uriah. Even looking past the 2 main events he has a solid card through out. BJ Penn vs JZ would be a top 5 dream match for me (2 of my favorite fighters) The match up between Wandy and Houston adds excitement to the card. Lindland vs Franklin could be better but for MW being a weak division in general its a solid choice. I am also impressed with the Fitch vs Hughes match up, interesting choice. Fitch reminds me of a young Matt Hughes though I feel he is further developed than Hughes was at the same age, so this is a nice Old School vs New School match up.

Fenikz: Silva vs Filho/Hendo/Lindland would be the number 3 anticipated match available, so major points for putting Filho and Silva together. Chuck vs Rampage is solid, but we've already witnessed Page own Chuck twice so its not as thrilling as other possible matchups. If Chuck were to beat Shogun that match would jump up a few notches. The most underrated matchup on your list is easily the Nog vs Barnett rubber match. I'd love to see this match, the first 2 fights were two of my favorites of all time. A final resolution to what was my favorite fight of all time in a Gomi vs Diaz rematch also got you points with me. Very underrated card, if not for UKFan having the top 2 dream matches in my eyes your card could defintely compete for 1st place.

3rd Place: Ravens 1991

Some intriguing match ups for sure, but Fenikz' s and UK's cards are pretty far ahead of yours IMO. I like the GSP vs Serra match up as a head liner. Two solid LHW battles but I am thinking I might rather see shogun vs hendo and Lyoto vs Arona. Give Shogun a chance to avenge his brothers loss to Hendo. Also pitting two of the most technical and cerebral fighters against each other in Arona vs Machida. Some may look at that as a snoozefest but I think it would prove to be a very intriguing match up. Lawler vs Kang adds excitement but would have been a much better match up had Kang still had momentum in his corner. CC vs Sylvia IMO would be a bad fight, I think Sylvia would control CC with sprawl and take downs rendering CC defenseless.




Hope this is what you were looking for in terms of judging. To be honest, id love to see any of these ppv's.

I'm surprised you didn't mention Huerta vs Griffin, that would probably be the best fight I would ever see in my life if they both fight like they usually do.

I tend to think Roger Huerta gets over hyped a bit but put any of that group of UFC LW's (Edgar,Griffin, Huerta, Lauzon, Florian, Guida) together and you are bound to get a fight of the night candidate.
