    What’s up fella’s? I’m here to announce something really cool that a handful of us have been working on over the past few weeks. Thanks to bbbomb, SunTszu, LeRoiStephon, and GravyCakes for helping out and getting this league off the ground.

    What we thought would be a cool concept is to have a year long DFS MMA league where the standings would be determined by an accumulation of points throughout the ongoing season, and a champion would be crowned at the end of the season. The season will run the entire UFC MMA year of 2017 starting with the UFC Fight Night 103 event on 1/15/17, and ending with the New Years Eve card at the end of 2017.

    We are now looking at taking on members for the league, so if you have interest in joining this league that will crown the best of the best over the course of a year, then please respond to this thread, and also email me at Info@TheMMAEdge.com.

    The league will be a $100 entry fee for the entire season, which will need to be paid via PayPal (Info@TheMMAEdge.com) before the first event of the season.

    The number of places that are paid out at the end of the year will be determined by how many league members that we get (most likely 2-3).

    The league will be hosted on http://TheMMAEdge.com, but will be operated through the DraftKings League area. DK doesn’t have the capability to track cumulative points throughout the season, so this will be tracked manually on an Excel spreadsheet by the League Commissioner.

    The idea of this league is to get the best of the best in one league, and have everyone duke it out over the course of an entire UFC calendar season. This will truly be a battle of wits, and will allow the cream to rise to the top. If you are crowned the inaugural Champion of the Grinders Elite MMA Championship League, then not only will you win the Champion’s prize pool, but you’ll also receive a trophy or plaque with your name engraved on it. You’ll also have bragging rights until the next year’s champion is crowned, and this is probably the biggest prize paid out in the league! The pride and bragging rights that come with winning this league will be 2nd to none within the DFS MMA world, and will be a league that grows in numbers and prestige over time.

    Please let me know if you have any questions on the league, or what it consists of, then please reach out to me, and I’ll be more than happy to help. We are in the final stages of finalizing the constitution for the league, and as soon as this is completed we will be sure to post here, as well as at the hosting site – http://TheMMAEdge.com.

    Let’s get some serious participation, and see how many people we can get in this new concept that we think is a great alternative to what is currently offered in the DFS MMA world now. The members will make this league thrive, so please pass along the word about this league, and please reach out to me if you’re interested in being a part of it. As mentioned, in order to be entered in the league, you’ll need to send the $100 entry fee via PayPal to Info@TheMMAEdge.com.

    Cheers,
    Jonathan Conrad

    Hey Brett can you make sure I registered properly

    As long as you sent payment to paypal to Info@TheMMAEdge.com and joined the dk league you should be good. I don’t see who’s paid but you can always message Jon too.

    I can’t see who has officially paid on my end, but I can see there’s been 31 people who’ve joined the DK league mentioned at the top of the rules: http://themmaedge.com/grinders-elite-mma-championship

    So we should have close to 2k to first place when all is said and done, very exciting!

    Alright, alright, alright…….we are less than a week away before the inaugural MMA Edge Championship kicks off with the UFC event this Saturday (1/15)! We have 40 entrants paid up so far! I wouldn’t be surprised if we get to 60+, and for our first year…..not bad at all!

    You need to pay the entry fee and join the league before the event starts this weekend. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Below is an email I sent to interested parties. Please feel free to forward along, and get as many people as possible.

    Hi All,

    You are receiving this email because you have expressed interest in joining the year long DFS MMA season that we are running through http://themmaedge.com/. The first event of the season is this Saturday, January 15th, 2017. If you have not paid the entry fee and joined the league by the start of the card on Saturday night, then you will not be able to join the league for 2017. Below are the links that you need to join. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me at Info@TheMMAEdge.com.

    We already have about 45 people paid and entered, and I’m hoping to get this up over 60 by Saturday, making the pot pretty sweet, and the bragging rights UNREAL! Don’t miss out!

    - The league constitution is posted within the link below, as well as all of the other info you’ll need in order to enter the league, including a link to pay the link via PayPal. http://themmaedge.com/grinders-elite-mma-championship

    — Please make sure that you pay as “friend or family member” in order to avoid the PP fees.

    — You’ll also need to send me your DK name within the PayPal transaction so I know who you are.

    — Once paid, you can then join the league through this link: https://dkn.gs/r/TdXmUuw-N0GVGcg6eQ3psg

    Please let as many of your MMA friends know about this league as possible, as we want the most participation as possible. This will be a lot of fun, and the start of a pretty awesome tradition!

    Please let me know if you have any questions whatsoever.

    Thanks,
    Jonathan Conrad

    What’s your PayPal email address? Just need to connect the PP email with the DK name. Did you send entry to Info@TheMMAEdge.com?

    Thanks

    There are 55 people registered for this tournament so far which is great, hopefully all pay. There’s also a lot of big names in here, headchopper and tommy g for example..

    And we have a large majority of who I consider to be the best mma players in the game. Representatives from RG, FanVice, DailyRoto, FantasyGuru.

    This really is going to be a great event, anyone looking to test themselves, this is a great chance at a reasonable price.

  • zelda3024

    Mine went to TheMMAEdge.com
    https://www.TheMMAEdge.com Through Paypal. Same place I sent you money before. I think I am good to go but if you need any other info just let me know:)

    Like Brett said this will be a great way to test ourselves. This will be a fun and exciting season.

  • afcangelo

  • sgaffney

    I am in 2-other MMA Tournaments, though this is the only one that is based on Draft Kings scoring! Being a season-long contest, strategy will be extremely important. I know that i am curious to see if it the Tortoise or the Hare that ends up as winner!

    *One correction. I am happy to be donating a Trophy/Plaque to go to the annual winner and will even cover the cost of shipping to the inaugural winner, however, arrangements will have to be made to cover the cost of shipping from the one year’s winner to the next. Perhaps a small hold back in the prize pool?

  • jrgum3

    Hey guys looking forward to this league. I just paid the entry fee to TheMMAedge.com but like others have said there’s no place to include my Draftkings username. It is BigBlue25. Thanks again I’m looking forward to testing myself against the best the game has to offer!

  • Jonny_Conrad

    Thanks for the quick response guys.

    Zelda – what’s your name and email address, so I can make sure I have your info listed correctly. If you’d rather PM me that info, feel free, or you can email me at Info@TheMMAEdge.com.

    Gaffney, Marley —-> You guys are all set. I have your entry fees, and you are within the DK league as well.
    Gaffney – Need you to send an additional $3.20 to offset the PP fee, and to get you to an even $100 entry. Please send when you have a minute.

    EricF —> Not seeing a PayPal entry from you for the $100 year long league. Did you send it? If so, to who? When you send, make sure you check the “Friends and Family” box to avoid the PP fee.

    We have a league created on DraftKings which you can find here: http://themmaedge.com/grinders-elite-mma-championship. Each week there will be a contest created for those specifically in that league, and scores will be tracked on Google Docs.

  • eric42

    I’m all set there. Paid and in the league. Has this week’s contest just not been created yet? Sorry, this is my first League on DK.

    Correct. It will be created in the coming days. You should receive an email or notification when it is, and we’ll be emailing out a google spreadsheet as well once we can finalize numbers.

    Brett if the option on DK to not accept invites is engaged, will that need to be turned off, even if it is a league that you have joined? I seem to remember some issue that you had during the TUF Contest

    I’m not positive whether that was an issue before but I doubt it. Plus I am not the one sending invites to the contest.

  • bbbomb

    The first contest has been created so you all can join if you have paid…

    Adam Thompson, Casey Boyer, Jonathan Dearing, Chris Cash please send me your DK names if you can, cross-referencing PayPal emails with a few unknown DK names.

    Thanks!

    You might be right but I sort of see it the opposite way, it’s such a long tournament I expect the more experienced players to have an edge.
