Fundamentals as sound as the WNBA


Do you love fake fighters doing fake fights? Then you'll love picking these events! Brock Lesnar! CM Punk! Conor McGregor! It's all on this season of the goonweight GP. 7 Big Events (ok some of them aren't big) and lots of RNG!

TheKingslayer won Season 21 because I suck and make bad picks and god I hate MMA/he was the better man than all of us. Can you defeat him?

About the Goonweight GP

Welcome to Season 22 of the Goonweight GP! Almost every week you'll see a new UFC card posted, you'll post your picks, then you'll watch the show and have more fun because some guy you've never heard of can net you an extra point if he can finish this before the end of the second round. You'll have even more fun when the judges rob someone and you get points for that. It's even better if everyone at your party hates the guy you need to win.

A few days before every card, I'll post the fights on the main card with a FORM and a SPREADSHEET. Fill out the form (or post you picks in the thread), and then check the spreadsheet to make sure your picks are in there correctly. When the card is over and I sober up, I'll calculate the results and post standings.

CERTIFIED RULES OF THE GRAND PRIX

  • Picks can be submitted via the Form, or in the thread, though I prefer you do both.
  • If a fight is called off after the form is posted no points will be awarded.
  • Picks must be submitted before the start of the Main Card to be eligible. Picks submitted after that point are considered null and void. Please pay attention to time zones, especially for European cards.
  • Same goes if you edit a post with picks in it after the main card starts.
  • If you wish to change your picks before the main card starts, make a separate post in the thread and I'll update the Form for you.
  • Points for each match are scored as follows
    • 3 points for picking the winner correctly
    • If you picked the correct winner, 1 bonus point for calling the round the fight finished
    • If you picked the correct winner, 1 bonus point for calling the method of finish (KO or Sub or Decision)
    • A fight that end in decision is not considered ending in a round
    • "OTNs" are given out for correctly picking the Fight, and the two Performances of the Night. These award no points, but are used to break a tie at the end of the season
    • On each card you can pick two POTN. If you pick the same person twice, I'll manually delete one.
  • Commission reserves the right to award no points for a fight based on really weird situations
  • Whoever has the highest combined score at the end of the season wins!

Too confusing? Please consult this handy flowchart to determine your score for a fight:


Here is the current season lineup:

SEASON 22

Upcoming Cards

UFC 200: 7/9
UFC on Fox 20: 7/23
UFC 201: 7/30
UFC Fight Night 92: 8/6
UFC 202: 8/20
UFC on Fox 21: 8/27
UFC 203: 9/10

That's right, another SEVEN CARD SEASON! I'm skipping two cards in that period because one is 4 days after 200 and one is a European fight night right before UFC 203. Plus it gives us a 2 week gap.

I've never got a dustman, but I was 2 minutes away in the vitor/bisping fight from the first coleman cup ever (I had vitor by first round KO got everything else 100% right) and that win carried me through to the belt. You only need one good night to win it all.

Also didn't see the news before I made this, so if you keep the Cormier votes in and he's fighting someone else change me to Knockout 2 (with him still winning) if the fight is 3 rounds. If it's 5 rounds you can keep me at knockout 4, though I think with how it's all gone down we ought to just toss out Cormier and whoever he fights, given the short notice and whatnot.

I always forget about doing this for WWE pay per views, maybe I'll get lucky and remember/win with UFC, which I barely follow at all!
