Technically the only prizes of the tourney that were posted and used last time are title shot and limba's trophy (plus, you know, credits). If MK was still champ and got to the final, they could do the title shot there and not have to go twice in a row if they wanted. It would keep things moving, you know. But things are not always guaranteed to happen like you think, an early tourney exit or a loss in a title defense outside the tourney would change things up.

Glad you like the idea so much, we'll do more tourneys every once in a while as long as people stay interested. It will give everyone a chance, and later on some people who come on later might find it tough to the number of wins others have. And I don't assume to know myself how many shows someone has watched or how many fighters they recognize based on how many times they have competed in a pick 'em game.

The answer to the other question if you seriously need one, is no. The fights count on everyone's records.

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...



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)?
Don't worry.. I will win this thing anyway!

I doubt there is going to be an upset. But if he got upset it would end up putting MK in doubt. And I don't think UFC bought Strikeforce cause of their poor decision making, they bought them because Silicon Valley and Entertainment wanted to sell Strikeforce.

No, the fights count on everyone's record. You can't say not everyone cause that isn't correct. If it's a pro fight it goes on the record.
