    Welcome to the Ultimate Fighter, DFS Edition! We are live!

    General Rules:

    There will be a maximum of 25 fighters eligible to compete in this tournament. I rounded up some of RotoGrinders’ best MMA competitors, based on their proven interest in the sport and community. We are now full!

    The first episode will take place March 21, and regardless of how many fighters enter the Octagon that night, only the top 15 will advance onto the show. From there out, multiple fighters will be eliminated every episode, until we are left with our final two challengers May 23.

    Specific Rules

    Immunity
    The winners of episode 1, 2 and 3 will be granted immunity for the following episode. This means the winner of episode 1 will be safe from elimination during episode 2. The winner of episode 3 will be safe from elimination during episode 4. The last chance to earn an immunity is during episode 3. After episode 3, there will be no more immunities granted.
    If there is a tie for first place, immunity will not be granted. There must be an outright winner to earn immunity.

    Advancement
    There will be a specific number of fighters who may advance from one episode to the next, which is listed in the schedule. For clarification, the top 15 fighters will advance from episode 1. This means were will be 15 competitors entering the Octagon during episode 2, but only the top 12 will advance (as listed).

    Tiebreakers
    I reserve the right to change the rules of tiebreakers before any given episode, which will be announced to the competitors. There will always be someone eliminated each episode.
    IF TIED FOR LAST:
    If 4 people tie for last place during episode 2, those 4 will all be eliminated, leaving only the top 11 to advance. If 15th, 16th and 17th place are tied at the end of episode 1, all 3 will advance to episode 2.
    IF NO TIE FOR LAST:
    If there is one last place finisher during episode 2, but the next 5 competitors are tied, the top 14 will advance.
    IF ALL TIED:
    There are three competitors scheduled to compete for the final two spots on episode 7. If all three tie, all three will advance to the Finale.
    FINALE:
    If the final two competitors are tied during the finale, the winner will be the fighter with the highest collective finish position. For clarification: Competitor A finishes 3rd, 4th, and 4th=11; Competitor B finishes 2nd, 6th, 5th=13. Competitor A would win. AMENDED There will not be a second tiebreaker, we will continue to battle it out if needed in the following weeks until we have a winner.

    Prize
    I’m thinking this will be the choice for TUF 1, we can edit for TUF 2 depending on results and kinks Completely free, 100 percent for fun tournament. This is my preference because it will be easier to not deal with sending of money back and forth, and it will allow us to work out potential kinks in the tournament without any monetary concern.

    Results
    I will create a contest each week and invite the participants still alive in the tournament. I will make a blog post after each episode for viewing pleasure.

    If there is any confusion, questions or comments, please share them.
    HAVE FUN AND GOOD LUCK.

    Thanks guys. Here’s the recap of Episode 3:

    For Episode 3, our remaining 12 competitors took a trip to Poland, and all seemed happy to get out of the house for a few days.

    Huiticinq and xmiami2lbiza snuck out of the hotel Friday night in search of a nice drink, and ended up partying till the wee hours of Saturday morning. Still feeling it, huiticinq remembered he hadn’t set his lineup, and chose to “plug in” Gabriel Gonzaga instead of formulating his optimal lineup.
    He hung on for the ninth and final spot to advance to Episode 4, but others were not so lucky.

    Episode 3 Standings:

    Grimblegromble misses weight:

    The big story of the night was the missed weight cut of grimblegromble. On Thursday night, grimblegromble still had several pounds to cut, so he hit the sauna big time, dropped the needed weight and “went to bed.” Shockingly, when time came to weigh in, grimblegromble was 12 pounds overweight.
    Unable to make the needed poundage, he left his lineup blank, giving the other 11 members of the competition a huge advantage.

    Mpeacher23 grabs final immunity:

    After rysportsguy earned immunity week one, nobody earned immunity in Episode 2, as two competitors tied for first place. In Episode 3, that changed, as mpeacher23 slipped past the rest of the field to stay safe for Episode 4.
    It wasn’t an optimal lineup, but it was enough to get it done.

    Exposure:

    Unlike last week, people were all over the place as far as exposure. The highest scoring fighter, Leon Edwards, was only 25 percent owned. The second highest scoring fighter, Maryna Moroz, was only owned at 16.7 percent.
    Alexandra Albu, who skyrocketed up the Vegas odds toward the end of the week, was obviously noted by our competitors, as she was the highest owned fighter at 58.3 percent. Gabriel Gonzaga, the main event loser, was owned in 50 percent of rosters.

    Schedule:

    Episode 1: March 21, Maia vs. LaFlare (25 enter, top 15 fighters advance)-8 COMPLETED
    Episode 2: April 4, Mendes vs. Lamas (15 enter, top 12 fighters advance)- COMPLETED
    Episode 3: April 11, Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop (12 enter, top 9 fighters advance)- COMPLETED
    FINAL IMMUNITY ROUND ^
    Episode 4: April 18, Machida vs. Rockhold (9 enter, top 7 fighters advance)
    END IMMUNITY
    Episode 5: April 25, Dillashaw vs. Barao (7 enter, top 5 fighters advance)
    Episode 6: May 9, Miocic vs. Hunt (5 enter, top 3 fighters advance)
    Episode 7: May 16, Edgar vs. Faber (3 enter, top 2 fighters advance)
    Finale: May 23, Jones vs. Johnson (2 enter, winner is crowned)
    NOTE: If DK doesn’t offer the April 11 and May 9 card, I will replace the two events with the FS1 card May 30 and the finale will be UFC Fight Night: Cormier vs. Bader June 6.

    Next Time on The Ultimate Fighter:

    We got completely the opposite direction from Episode 3, where there plenty of no-name fighters in a 12-fight card. This Saturday, there are only eight fights to choose from, and almost every fighter is well-known.
    Nine fighters will enter, but only seven will leave, on the next episode of the The Ultimate Fighter- DFS Edition
