Just an idea, but isn't there a way to re-do the rankings so it bases it on your recent form (last 5 fights for example). The way they are, theoretically you could have someone who is 8-24 ranked higher than someone thats 7-0. I could be champ next week yet not ranked in the top 30 ;D

Yea I'm with you bud, should be the person with the best form in their last five matches gets the next shot.

At the moment it's always the same people challenging and unless you go something like 6-0 at the start you wont ever be a title challenger.

I mean ( obviously my record isnt great this is just an example) I have beaten people who then go on to have a title shot? Doesn't make much sense if we are basing it on rankings. Another thing (I think Dude tends to do this) is that if some people have won 3/4 outta five recently they should be matched up together ( just like top ten fighters get matched up together in real life). Similarly people who haven't won recently (0-5, 1-5) should be matched up together.

Another rule could be that if you lose a title shot you can't have another shot until you have like 2 more matches? Because obviously a champ who then loses could have a record of 4-1 outta five which is likely going to be the highest. Just keeps the title picture a bit more interesting and gives the new guys ( and just everyone in general (i.e. old vets who are like 14-18 or whatever)) a better chance of glory .

Still, making match-ups and giving title shots based on recent form makes more sense when you think about rankings + its more fair to everyone

I fully agree, and think mattandbennys 'formula' is great, as you can clearly see who is on form and who isn't!

I remember my first title shot. I beat one of the top togs, he was in the top 5 and then a former champion who was ranked somewhere in the top 3. At least i think that's how it was. It was pretty much how things work in the real life.

And i'm the real life Tito Ortiz of this league.

How does this work and how do I sign up? If it's blatantly obvious and in front of my face, I suppose you may need to get used to my ignorance. Much obliged

Basically you just pick the whole card. Sign up and send dudes a PM containing all the winners, round and method. Start the list with your most confident pick and go down to your least confident one. It would look sth like this:

gsp-tko-1st
bisping-dec-ud
etc.

That's really all that there is to it. You get matched up another member. You'll get the scoring from another thread.
