I think it's time we shake up the scene a tiny bit.
Hello! I'm Zeke Williams, owner of Honolulu-Hilo MMA, and it's my proud pleasure to announce to you:
The First Ever Amateur Olympics!
For those that wish to participate, this is how it will work:
- Your job, as a manager, is to "sponsor" a rising fighter from his country. However, with limited spots in the tourney, and possible double-ups that I don't want, the country list will be pre-determined.
- A certain date will be decided to "sponsor" your fighter, as this will be a creation tourney.
- Depending on how much appeal this gets, there will be either 16 or 32 fighters, in groups of 4. Half of the fighters will move onto the double elimination bracket after the round robin group stage.
- Just to emphasize, each fighter will fight the other fighters in their group twice, and it takes two losses in the elimination bracket to be eliminated all together.
- Probably one of the more controversial points, rounds will be separated by one week each. This might irk some, for training and healing purposes, but it's the best way to keep the ball rolling. Alternatively, you can forfeit matches for your fighters if you feel it is necessary.
- The prize pool size will be determined by the total revenue of all of the cards, plus any donations, and will be split up as shown:
- 1st: 40% of the prize pool
- 2nd: 20% of the prize pool
- 3rd/4th: 10% of the prize pool
- 5th/16th: splits the remaining 20% of the prize pool
- 17th/32nd (if needed): nothing
Lastly, here are the possible countries you can sponsor from.
Once they're taken up by a manager, they're gone for good.
