      2018 DraftKings NFL KOTB Finalist

    I propose that DraftKings do a live final! MMA started January 18th of this year on DK and it’s time we get a live final. Out of all the sports MMA is one of the only sports that constantly has large amounts of ties for first place. So, you make it a survivor tournament over X amount of weeks for qualifiers. I was thinking they could lead up to the big one UFC 200 next year in July. (would rather it sooner though). Just a thought and figured some of you guys would like it too.

    I love this idea. I have little pull in the industry but if I come in contact with the powers that be at DraftKings next week at the DFS Players Conference, I will 100% bring this up.

    Awesome! I figured the general idea is there. I am trying to crack top 10 Rotogrinder MMA leaderboard by the end of the year. I’m sure they could have the live final at the actual fights too which would be fantastic.

    Stumbled onto this thread. Just emailed VIP team to get their thoughts.
    Love the idea of doing survivor that finishes at the actual event. Great idea.

    Nah, but I suspect it will come eventually, especially when NFL/NBA/NHL/CFB die down.

    Word I got back is that it’s 50/50 at this point but definitely being discussed.

    Just a thought, but maybe we can change the name of this thread to “Let’s Push For An MMA Live Final” and have people email support showing interest?

    Good idea I am going to do that.

    So the plan is just to email DK Support? I’d definitely be in for this.

    Yeah, I mean, we might as well right? Can’t hurt. I’ll send them an email this afternoon.

    I’m open to hearing other ideas that might help influence DK as well if anyone has them.

    I agree!!! We should flood DK with emails… MMA deserves a live final!!!

    Response I got was same as donk’s^^ It’s being discussed and it’s 50/50 as of now.

    This is one of the problems I could see with this live final. They won’t be able/willing to host it in Vegas, which potentially means a live final at a non-PPV card.

    YES! I was just saying that MMA would be the most intense/fun live final imaginable. It is such an underrated DFS sport and I think that a LIve Final would help drive some other DFS players to try and qualify and get interested in playing regularly. Make it happen DK!

    I love this idea. I actually pitched this to a senior executive at the UFC under the guise of building an audience for Fight Pass. I won the Hanging w/Frank Mir Contest that ran commensurate with Fight Night 80. It was an awesome experience (Frank was great).

    I actually gave started looking more forward to UFC DFS events over football. Having an annual tournament with satellites would be a great tribute to the sport and the players.
