Pride Memorial King of the Mountain Tournament



Seeing as I haven’t had time to do any podcasting, I have been thinking and I am strongly considering a rebrand of Pride in January. Same structure and style org but with my own logo and belt scheme and such. Along with that thought process, I feel the best way to memorialize the Pride Naming scheme is to conduct a best on best grand tournament. I have reached out privately prior to posting this to several orgs and all framework is tentative at this stage.  


Rules:

  • 8 or 16 Man 185+ Open ID Tourney (depending on interest and participation)

  • Round of 16 and/or Round of 8 3 x 5 minutes

  • Final 4 and Finals 5 x 5

  • Minimum weight: 185 LBS and up

  • Open to all eligible fighters and Orgs

  • Orgs have the right to decline participation or choose fighters themselves for selection (with manager approval to participate). See Org List below.

  • Alternate Slots may be required in case of manager inactivity 

  • Minimum 300 P4P or better required on date of entry (best on best tournament, The highest 8 ranked participants will be chosen to begin)

  • All Contracts will be 4 fights 1/1/1 265+

  • All participating non-Pride fighters will be released after 1 tournament loss

  • 3 week period between rounds

  • Planned Start Date 8th January 2020 

  • Signup Deadline December 22nd 2019 (participating fighters must be available for loan by this date)


Prizes (MINIMUM VALUE) 

  • 1st Prize: 1.5 million direct manager transfer + 750k to the winning fighters org + TBD Sponsor Swag

  • 2nd prize: 750k + 300k + Swag

  • 25k fight bonuses for quickest finish each round 


Values above assume a 3 round 8 fighter setup, the more fighter participation and Company sponsorship we receive, the bigger the planned payouts at all levels. 


Participating Orgs

  • Pride

  • Empyrean

  • CEC

  • Syn (tentatively) 


Both GAMMA and Pulse were consulted and politely declined tournament participation for their fighters. 


Participating Managers

  • BillyA (likely Akoni Gray)

  • Camara (Chris Steve)

  • Rei (Benson Whyte)

  • TJMitchell (Likely Luc Gagnon)

  • Action Jackson (TBD)

  • Power Shark (Rick Piano)

  • Jax Stark (Corban Storm)

  • Louie Depalma (Latka Gravas)

  • Alternates?



Current Tournament Sponsors

  • Dark Knight Nutrition

  • Condemned

  • Others (TBA)

FYI my fighter will most likely be Akoni Gray. So if people fancy their chances at some hefty hype stealing get amongst it.
