View Full Version : MMA Draft

Seems like we have a lot of new MMA fans on here and I dont think a draft has been done for a while. I am looking for between 6 and 8. Spots will be held for people I deem very knowledgeable if they want to participate.

It will be 2 fighters per weight class HW down to FW.

Dont yet know how it will be judged.

Fighter selection should be based on how talented u feel a fighter is and who is most likely to win, not only current form necessarily. For example, if u think Rampage is a better than Forrest, just because Forrest beat him he isnt necessarily the better pick.

Will hold spots for: Myself, CCB, Ravens, Fenkiz, JF4, and UK and I may be forgetting some people as well. If one of those people posts here I will tell them they are in right away. So there are 2 spots left provided all the people above accept their position. Have at it!

ROUND 1
Jay-Anderson Silva MW
UK-Fedor HW
Rob-GSP WW
Tampa-BJ Penn LW
Fenik-Faber FW
Ravens-Big Nog HW

ROUND 2
Ravens-Forrest Griffin LHW
Fenikz-Kid Yamamoto FW
Tampa-Lyoto Machida LHW
Rob- Dan Henderson MW

This will be good with the mess of the LHW division now. I would love to see earlier MMA drafts to see how it compares. Will the grading be affected if some crazy upsets happen on SAT?

yeah i would say it has to be. If u would rather hold off to start thats fine.....but I would still take Fedor even if we started before sat. haha

Rob S
07-16-2008, 08:49 PM
and i want this to move fast.....my NBA draft has been dragging. I am going to say no clock for now because i think everyone here is reliable and I know most of u pretty well, but i reserve the right to put a clock into effect whenever. Also....in the interest of moving this along....I will dangle rep. You pick on time and the draft flies, rep for everyone haha

Ravens1991
07-16-2008, 09:57 PM
yea I want it fast to. I dont care when we start. I was JW because Fedor will be a top 3 pick and Sylvia will last and be a mid rounder. But a lucky cut will screw everything up.

Rob S
07-16-2008, 10:24 PM
maybe we will hold off till sunday then....thats fine by me

I am sure Leben will enjoy going all the way to England to show Bisping what a real ass kicking feels like. I hate Bisping, I just said that to mess w/ UK who loves him.


Hey Rob can we get a draft order up and all that stuff.

Bisping is the man I don't see how anyone can't like that guy.

I will do an order soon. I just donno about JF. And I am far too tired now haha

Ravens1991
07-18-2008, 11:10 AM
Bisping is the man I don't see how anyone can't like that guy.

He has overrated cocky d-bag plastered on his forehead. Plus the way he ran his mouth after he got his ass kicked by Hammil makes me cant wait to see him demolished. Plus he just isnt funny at all, and he has a bad british accent. Not to mention the UFC kisses this guys ass so much for him being an above average fighter at best.

I view it as confidence, what do you expect him to come out and say, "I got my ass kicked give Matt Hammil the win" He'd be a sucker if he did something like that. If you are a fighter you should go in thinking you are better than everyone, why else would you fight someone if you thought you weren't the better fighter. I think he's funny as hell, and hte UFC is right to market him, he's big in the UK where they are trying to establish their brand. I guess you don't like Rampage either, he has that same cockiness. I think he is one of the best MW prospects out there.

Ravens1991
07-18-2008, 03:47 PM
If Bisping said "That was a real close fight, I would love to fight him again." Then it would be different. But since he called him **** pre-fight and told him to go back to wrestling after he got out struck by a wrestler jus makes me want to see his blood gushing over the mat. He is a decent prospect, but the way he prances around thinking he is hot sh!t after demolishing some scrub just bothers me.
I like Rampage, he isnt my favorite LHW.

Stuff said pre-fight is hardly ever the fighters true feelings, its all babble to hype the fight up and get people angry (like yourself) or excited to watch the fight. When people think fighters have heat with each other that makes them want to watch their fights more (you wanting to watch his fights to see him get crushed) Also I'd hardly call Jason Day "some scrub" and Bisping pwned him.

Ravens1991
07-19-2008, 12:50 PM
Good point about Day he is decent at best, he isnt as big of a scrub as that freak show McCarthy screaming at him. Day does have a nice win over the Crow, but he did take the fight on short notice. I just want Bisping to fight a top 15 fighter w/ all the hype he is getting.

Rob S
07-19-2008, 02:51 PM
cant wait to actually get this started haha. I am somewhere in the middle on Bisping. I like confidence in a fighter and I would never even go into a sparring session thinking I am going to lose (actually that fighter's mentality sums up my life perfectly because I think I will beat anyone in anything even if I know I am going to get owned), however....I like a quiet confidence. As far as talent, I think Bisping is a very good prospect, but i think he does have flaws. I cant see him being a top 5 fighter at 185, but top 10....yes.

Rob S
07-20-2008, 09:14 AM
Figured I would miss out on both, but luckily I think there is a clear #3 right now (altho I bet CCB disagrees haha....and I love his guy too).

I will take GSP....I think he is clearly the best WW out there with nobody really coming close. He is probably also the 2nd most talented fighter in the world with greater potential than anyone but Fedor imo. And yes, even more than ur man crush CCB....even tho its close GSP's athleticism puts him over the top imo.

07-20-2008, 05:36 PM
Big Nog
http://www.ultimate-fighter.net/uploads/BigNog/bignog.jpg

Arguably a top 5 MMA artist, just cant beat the un human Fedor.


Forrest "Pride Killer" Griffin
http://myspace-479.vo.llnwd.net/00849/97/44/849514479_l.jpg

Despite what people feel, he has knocked off the last 2 LHW ranked #1. With his resume he is the #1 LHW now.

hahahaha couldnt pass on him here tho. I actually thought u would have gone for him at 6 or 7. He is a monster at 185.

Ravens1991
07-20-2008, 11:21 PM
yea but Nog is arguably top 5-7 P4P but so is Hendo. It is just that Nog is the unanimous #2 HW and Hendo isnt unanimous top 3 MW (i have seen him ranked as low as 8th) Plus Griffin w/ his recent resume deserved the spot there. I was also hoping everybody would have forgotten about him and he slid down to my 3rd pick.

Cant argue with ur picks. Personally I think Hendo would have an easier time cleaning out 185 (minus Silva) than Nog would at HW (Sylvia gave him problems, him vs Barnett is a pick em, etc). I see why u picked him tho, he is and probably should be higher ranked.

Ravens1991
07-20-2008, 11:31 PM
I am never nervous w/ Nog, in a 5 round war he can submit anybody on this planet except for Fedor and Barnett. He doesnt have an ounce of quit in his body. I love him. But then again it would be hard to make a bad pick at this spot in the draft. But looking back at it I kind of wish I got a FW because that is preety thin.

Matt Lindland MW

Could be considered a reach, but "The Law" is the second best MW out there IMO, and MW is a really weak division in comparison to most others.

07-21-2008, 11:54 AM

Fabricio Werdum......all the HW still out there kinda suck imo (and I loathe Sylvia) and Werdum is one of my personal favorites. His BJJ is elite and he outstruck Vera. Him vs Nog would be one of the most aesthetically pleasing fights in the sport imo. I see big things coming for him in the UFC with a title reign not out of the question. AND I took both him and Arlovski which means they wont fight each other again which means I automatically win haha!

Fabricio Werdum......all the HW still out there kinda suck imo (and I loathe Sylvia) and Werdum is one of my personal favorites. His BJJ is elite and he outstruck Vera. Him vs Nog would be one of the most aesthetically pleasing fights in the sport imo. I see big things coming for him in the UFC with a title reign not out of the question. AND I took both him and Arlovski which means they wont fight each other again which means I automatically win haha!


My Team

FW:
LW: Takanori Gomi
WW: Georges St.Pierre
MW: Dan Henderson
LHW: Chuck Liddell
HW: Andrei Arlovski, Fabricio Werdum

Shane Carwin is out there and the guy is a beast with a ton of potential.
