You probably saw the episode of the MMA Hour in which Abi Abdel-Aziz, match maker for the World Series of Fighting (WSOF), shared with the world his idea for a WSOF VS Bellator pay per view event.
Crazy as it may be it also started me thinking just how good would a UK version of an MMA super card be? We are treated to shows nearly every week in the UK/Europe and with such a bucket of talent I came up with the crazy idea of fantasy match making. Took me a while to come up with a list of fighters across the various promotions but I think I have finally come up with a card which will excite you ever so slightly (well that’s the plan anyway).
Now this is all fantasy stuff and will need your guys input to really make it work. Although in the spirit of keeping things simple all I am asking for you to do is tweet using the relevant hashtag’s to tell me who you would like to win the below listed bouts. Very scientifically I have made sure that even if you pick the fighters with the longest surnames throughout the card they all still fall within twitters 140 character restriction. For example the tweet below is how to structure your tweet;
#WHOATVFantasyIsland #quinn #menga #sutherland #fletcher #pendred #vemola #grimshaw #wilkinson
Be sure to use the hashtag #WHOATVFantasyIsland before all your tweets
Depending on how much support we get on this there could certainly be future events and I could even work out Title belts etc. Hopefully the above is pretty straight forward (just like me) but if anyone has any questions/tips/suggestions let me know.
So here is the card as it stands. Let’s get voting and try and make this as fun as it can be!
