    I'd like to get involved, if that's cool.

    I'm willing to do the scorekeeping and posting.

    I'm think at least for now we should only do UFC/Bellator/WSOF. Maybe KSW, One FC or M-1 if there's big fights. It'll be pretty hectic otherwise.

    I say we go with the Kirks rules more or else. Winner along with the method of victory(sub, ko, decision)

    Just off the top of my head:

    Rules for the MMa League:

    1. To join the league simply make a post with the guys/gals names that you are picking to win from the monthly fight list.

    2. With the fighters name, post in what method the fight will end: ko/tko, ud, or sub.

    Example:

    This is what a fight list would look like (rough approximate):

    B.J Penn vs Yair Rodriguzez January 15, 2017
    Joe Lauzon vs Marcin Held January 15, 2017
    Court McGee vs Ben Saunders January 15, 2017
    John Moraga vs Sergio Pettis January 15, 2017
    Frankie Saenz vs Augusto Mendes January 15, 2017



    to enter your picks you would simply make a post that would look something like this:

    Rodriguez tko, Lauzon sub, Mcgee ud, Pettis tko, Mendes sub






    Feel free to scrap and re-word both of those rules.

    I don't know anything about Bellator and would be more comfortable with just UFC, but I'm not overly bothered if they're included.

    You have a point. Bellators undercards can be pretty low level, but the main card is definitely good enough to be included. So I think we'll scrap that.

    Sounds good to me. We'll scrap the prelims for Bellator cards for now(unless something stands out) because the prelims can have some pretty low level regional stuff. Might put the thread up tonight. I'm going to ask Kirk if we can copy/paste his format(slight changes will be made obviously) I don't want to shamelessly rip off his thread without asking -but it's the same site so there shouldn't be an issue. This weeks UFC card shouldn't count since it's only 3 days away and the official thread hasn't been put up yet.
