    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

    If I remember correctly yours was one of the many that tied for 2nd overall. There are 72 players I believe in the tournament, John should be sending out the full payout structure today or as soon as he can, along with a spreadsheet of the standings.

    Update: That email with standings and payout structure was sent out. Mojo I think you were in 13th. 1st gets 3k, 2nd 1k, top 15 paid out. You can see full list on the email and I tweeted it out.
