Fundamentals as sound as the WNBA


After over a year THE GOONWEIGHT GP IS BACK!

The last two seasons kind of sucked since fights got cancelled every week, and mostly at the last minute. So people lost interest and I can't blame them. It feels like less fights are going down at the last minute (but some still are) and there's some big fights in the next few months (well, a few) so let's bring it back!

Last season the RNG almost won, ending up in 4th. Nystral actually won. It has been awhile so I'm not sure where the belt is, but that doesn't matter. I have another belt, and more importantly there will be a plaque. So I am asking a favor of you all:

If someone has a high res version of the PRO POSTING CHAMPIONSHIP logo please link to it here or post the best quality one you've got. Thanks!

About the Goonweight GP

Welcome to Season 24 of the Goonweight GP! Every other week or so 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 stop being lazy, I'll calculate the results and post standings. The coolest people post picks in the thread and spreadsheet. Of the Night Awards serve as Tie Breakers.

As with previous seasons, there will also be RNG picks.

CERTIFIED RULES OF THE GOONWEIGHT GP


quote:

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!



If you pick a fight right, you get 3 points! If you get it wrong, no points! Pick the round, get another point! Pick the finish and you get another! Five Points if you get all of em!

We will not be picking every show because some of these shows suck and happen on the same day as other shows so instead we are tentatively doing:

Tentative Schedule
UFC 229: 10/6
UFC 230: 11/3
UFC Fight Night Zombie vs Edgar: 11/10
UFC Fight Night Blaydes vs Ngannou 2: 11/24
UFC 231: 12/8
UFC on Fox: 12/15
UFC 232: 12/29


The TUF Finale or the Dos Santos card could get subbed in for the 11/24 card if one of those looks better, or more hilarious in the case of the TUF finale.

OUR FIRST EVENT:

quote:

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor
Tony Ferguson vs. Anthony Pettis
Ovince Saint Preux vs. Dominick Reyes
Derrick Lewis vs. Alexander Volkov
Michelle Waterson vs. Felice Herrig

Form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1...orm?usp=sf_link
Responses: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...dit?usp=sharing

You can now view responses in the form. Google made a bunch of changes since we last played so I'm hoping nothing broke and the sheets still work. If not it'll be a lot more fun to calculate the winners!

Most everyone beat the RNG despite the RNG doing relatively well, so good job! There's plenty of season for everything to go nuts so I'll see you in MSG for whatever the hell is left on that card.

UFC 230! I spent so much time waiting for something else to fall apart that I got too busy to post this until now.

quote:

Daniel Cormier vs. Derrick Lewis
Chris Weidman vs. Ronaldo Souza
David Branch vs. Jared Cannonier
Karl Roberson vs. Jack Marshman
Derek Brunson vs. Israel Adesanya

A weird card like this almost ensures a bunch of finishes so there's plenty of time to get in the game even if you missed the first event!

On a mostly unrelated note I cloned this form from UFC 204, the main and semi main eventers are all either retired or in other companies.
