    Hey everybody,

    For those who weren’t around earlier this year, I ran Season 1 of the The Ultimate Fighter- DFS Edition, which was a Daily Fantasy MMA survivor tournament loosely based around the reality show “The Ultimate Fighter.” That tournament was very successful and I received enough feedback to warrant running it for a second time. If you’d like to read the thread from the first season, click here.

    Unlike last time, which was FREE, I’ve decided to make this contest $20 to enter. I will hold all payments in PayPal throughout the competition and will pay out to the winners at the completion of the tournament. Right now, I’m thinking we should make this a top-heavy tournament, with payouts awarded to the top three finishers who make the finale. I’m open to suggestions on this.

    Contest Structure:

    This is a seven-week survivor tournament that eliminates a small number of entrants each time. Currently, we are at 24 entries, which means there is a prize pool of $480. Here is the payout:

    1st- $240
    2nd- $160
    3rd- $80

    Please review the schedule and advancement section to see how many players advance past each week.

    Tiebreaking Procedure

    In the schedule, I’ve listed the number of people who enter and advance each week. IF YOU TIE for the place of advancement, you will advance. That means in Episode 1, even though 20 people are scheduled to advance, if 3 players happen to tie for 20th place, they will all advance and enter Episode 2.

    If there is a tie in the finale, we will continue to play a h2h or 3-man game until a winner is determined. If there is a tie for 2nd and 3rd place in the finale, I will award them a split of 2nd and 3rd place money, which is $120 per person.

    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 2 will be safe from elimination during episode 3, and so on. The last chance to earn immunity is during episode 3, in which that winner will be safe during episode 4.

    If there is a tie for first place, immunity will not be granted. There must be an outright winner to earn immunity.

    Schedule and Advancement:

    Episode 1: November 14, Rousey vs. Holm (24 enter, 20 advance) COMPLETED

    Episode 2: November 21, Brown vs. Gastelum (20 enter, 16 advance) COMPLETED

    Episode 3: November 28, Henderson vs. Alves (16 enter, 12 advance) COMPLETED

    Episode 4: December 10, Namajunas vs. VanZant (12 enter, 8 advance) COMPLETED

    Episode 5: December 12, Aldo vs. McGregor (8 enter, 5 advance) COMPLETED

    Episode 6: December 19, Dos Anjos vs. Cerrone (5 enter, 3 advances)

    FINALE- Episode 7: January 2, Lawler vs. Condit (3 enter, 1 winner)

    Do we have a group sharing lineups or is it coincidence that 5 players have the same lineup?

    No group sharing lol, but lots of highly owned fighters…few obvious plays. When fighters are 60, 50, 75% owned, overlap happens. Plus I’m sure most people read my blog so that could direct traffic in one direction, considering this is an RG tourney..

  • tcottrill

    I tried to be a little contrarian and I didn’t put in the work this week… and I got exactly what I deserved. Good luck all.

  • DontThrowPick6

    I’m not sure if henderson vs alves DK contest will happen since the prelims start at 4:45…..in the morning. You may want to e-mail DK support showing your interest.

    DraftKings is the official sponsor of the UFC… How could they not run a contest for a UFC event!!! They’ve got an exclusive partnership… I mean think about ALLL the rake DraftKing’s makes off of UFC events… They’re going to forgoe all the tens of thousands of dollars they can make off of rake because the start time is too early?? Yeah right!!! They’re find a way to make that money… Fights have started at like 6 before… That hasn’t held an event up…

  • DontThrowPick6

    Sorry, I should clarify.

    I don’t see a contest in the DK lobby for this weekend’s MMA event yet.

    I hope I didn’t sounds condescending DTP6…. I was worried too for a sec… But then I thought about it… There aren’t any odds out on the fight really… Henderson Masvidal was made late…… Hopefully that’s why there’s no MMA section… Hopefully the start time doesn’t discourage DK from making thousands of dollars this weekend lol… What’s the diff between 8 am and 4:45am?? Plus after the UFC 192 debacle… Can they afford to f up another MMA event and keep their customers?? I don’t think so… They better never miss an event again… Especially with their logo plastered all over the Octogan..

  • DontThrowPick6

    Nah, I didnt take it you were condescending at all. I just didn’t want to make the impression i was sending out mis-information. Usually DK post a $3 lineup to reserve a spot for the next ufc event, i did not see this in this case.

  • LeRoiStephon

    True dat… I hope it’s just the fact that there are no odds on the fight, the strange start time, and the late additions to the card recently….

    I’d be surprised if DK doesn’t have MMA for the next event. Even if contests are small they will still make money.

    UPDATE

    I will be removing Mendes vs. Edgar from the contest and adding in the Jan. 2 event Lawler vs. Condit as the Finale.

    I feel that we might not know until tomorrow morning whether DraftKings will run a contest for Mendes vs. Edgar and I’d rather be safe than sorry.

    Let me know if you have any questions!
