Yeah, lets. Which will probably be determined by the record and stuff. Not like the Strikeforce Grand Prix which wasn't steady.

No offense dude but this is bull allowing Machida to enter the GP with no belt on the line. That guarantees he won't lose the belt for the next 3 or 4 events which will be likely September...(2nd event doesn't look to be until July 30th...)

Machida Karate has already been gifted his UFC belt once already when he lost to Inkdot... Imo it looks bad when you stay the champion even if you lose and takes all the credibility in owning the belt away... Just like SF is going to look like a joke when Werdum beats Overeem and doesn't win his title...

If MK really wants to enter the tournament it should be done in one of two ways.

1) He abandons his title. If you want could give him an interim title that gives him the first shot after the GP winner gets his.

2) Put his belt on the line during the tournament. If this is done I think Hixxy or I should get the first shot at him depending on our UFC 130 match as previously discussed.

Just don't get why MK should be gifted his title while the top contenders get screwed.

To bad we already had a instant rematch right after that fight to see who is the champ because we had our fight planned BEFORE i won my belt.... And i won that RM so calling that a gifted belt is as sad as your complaint.

And obviously a lot of you have extreme confidence in me because you think im going to win the whole thing hence why your Crying *tear*

This whole thing was made for a fun side thing and were doing the exact same thing as SF is doing in there GP and your bitching? When its obvious you would want to join the GP for that trophy if you were in my shoes but cry when its someone else, is also sad.

Dudeabides makes the rules and your whole (Taking the Credibility away) speech is crap, and if you dont care about the belt or the credibility then stop playing before i challenge everyone other than the baby

This tournament might be fun for you and all the guys lightyears away from a title shot, but it sucks balls for the top contenders...

What are myself and Hixxy supposed to do now? Enter the grand prix and hope to win 3-4 straight matches over the next 4 months just in order to get to the same place we already are at? Avoid the GP and hope you lose early?

For a guy that has somehow managed to only really defend his UFC title once since acquiring it 7 events ago you sure do seem sure of your abilities... Too bad we can't all be gifted title rematches and fights that don't count towards the title. Taking a couple events off doesn't hurt either... You say that I don't care about the belt but that is bs, I do care about the belt and that is why I don't want it to be sidelined for up to a half a year just so you can go for a 3rd title...

During this rant I have come to think of another solution to this although I doubt you will agree as it would mean you would actually have to try and defend your title... Enter the GP. Face one GP contender per event as well as the top contender, make one set of predictions or two if you feel the need to modify them according to your competition. If you lose to the GP contender they move on and you keep your title. If you lose to the contender you stay in GP but lose your title. If you lose to both you lose your title and your position in GP.

I said if your bitching about the credibility of the belt then STFU and stop playing little cry baby, and you had the belt and lost it INSTANTLY and your trying to talk to me about anything...

i didnt read half of what u said because i know its prob mostly bitching and im not going to waste my time off work to hear a baby cry i dont get paid for it.

But Dude please stop the cry baby that cant even defend a belt and bitches and tries to get closer to a title fight by crying a river...

No worries 420 i know your garbage at picking fights so ill just challenge others besides your sad ass and watch you lose and start over in the list all over again and get my shits and giggles

I love guys that cant hold there belt and try to cry to get a shot at it, awwww its ok 420 one day you will be a Big Boy! YAY!

Keep running. Its the only way you will hold your titles...

Loving the criticism from a guy who has never defended his title more then once consecutively in either league... Guess you get that from your boy Machida...

Give me a chance and I will show you what a true champion can do...

You can't keep running forever. I'm sure he'll pull it together though and defend the titles. It is also the only way to keep them.

You guys know this is a sign up thread, right? If you see your name on the sign up list in the first post and don't intend to be in the GP let me know. Being in the GP is easy, I have to say. If you show up every event and send picks, it only requires you to do what you already do. But if people are coming on the sign up thread to ask questions or complain they might get put on the list I wouldn't be surprised if I did that.

Any more ?'s let me know, I told kantowrestler on pm that the first round matchups would be based on rankings. If there were 16 people playing, the highest ranked person (in this case Machida Karate) would be the #1 seed and go against the #16 seed (the lowest ranked person who signs up). When we played in the UFC CPL we had an odd number of tournament entries, and if that happens one or more people will get automatic byes in the first round. Those would go to the highest ranked people in the event, again Machida Karate. If he had a bye in the first round he could be free to face whoever he wanted in a regular title defense outside the tourney.
