I guess you can sign me up also...even though i'm still in a blur regarding my personal/professional life for the near future.

I'm entering this and picks will come in a while.
Not a hard card to pick tbh.

PS: not voting for the trophies since they're all *my babies* - you must show your kids the same love, don't you?!

.



BELIEVE!

Heh, my 2 favs of your trophies are tied for 2nd. People can vote on that whether or not they want in the GP, they just need to have played in one of the pick 'em events before so they know what it is all about.

And... limba! Rock on, signed you up. I know you will be busy, if you can prognosticate your picks early go ahead and send them! It will be the same deal as in the usual events, pick every main card fight and choose two from the prelims. Don't worry if they change which you know S'force like to do, any change to any single fight on the card and your picks can be resent. Just the one or all of them, however you feel about doing it.

Guys I don't really see a Problem here..

If the Champ wants to participate in the GP then thats his choice, cause he's the champ.

If MK wins the tourney then he wins the trophy and the prestige of holding 2 belts and 1 GP throphy!

If MK loses, then he gets eliminated from the tourney and the winner of that tourney will challenge him for the belt and wins the tournament trophy.

just like it's done in Strikeforce right now with Overeem.



But I would personally include the upcoming Dream event into this GP. Otherwise it would really take a while.. thoughts?

There is going to be a straight up pick 'em, just the winners, in DREAM for the next show bank on it. It will be easier than this or the one in Bellator (where you can win a million credits a week but only 5 people sign up, heh). If enough people like picking Japanese fights like they used to, maybe we could turn it into a real pick 'em league like this one for the next show they put on.

And it's like Bobby says, the champ has earned his choice of whether or not to compete in the tourney. If he wins 3 or 4 in a row (only hope we get that kind of turnout signed up) and that keeps the belt from being possibly taken, that is just a benefit the champ will also deserve. Being able to pull off a streak like that would make it hard to see him losing his title in most any defense that would've happened anyway.

My thoughts exactly..

Yeah facing the lowest ranked SF pickers that probably don't even know half the fighters on the cards is really going to show what kind of champion MK is... Really makes it obvious whether or not MK would stay champion if he were to actually fight the best opponents...

Yeah, cause everyone should follow in the joke of MMA's footsteps... The UFC ended up buying SF because of SF's poor decision making ability...

What is funny is that MK actually agrees with me and knows it but is too scared to put his own belt on the line...

But whatever.... All good fights... It would just be truly annoying if Fedor beats Overeem in the tourney and loses the title fight lol
Maybe it is just because he has gotten used to losing title fights and then getting another shot to keep his belt...

Edit: If MK's record isn't on the line in this tournament, if myself or Hixxy enter are we safe as well(ie don't lose top contender status if we lose in GP)?

Is this going to have the same format as the actual Strikeforce Grand Prix where if the champion is in the final the title will be on the line as well?
