TONIGHT - we'll be putting some of the UFC's toughest competitors to the test in Verdansk in our very first Barstool Sports x MMA Warzone Grand Prix from 7-10pm ET LIVE on Twitch!
It'll feature former champions, future title contenders, amazing prospects, and tons of bloggers, so I'm stoked about it!
Here's how it'll all go down....
-Tournament will last 3 hours, 7pm-10pm EST (Team can drop until 10pm EST)
- Top 3 games will count to the team's score
- 1 Point for each elimination
- Placement points are as follows:
Win = +5
Top 2 = +5
Top 3 = +5
Top 4 = +3
Top 7 = +3
Top 10 = +2
Top 15 = +1
Top 20 = +1
Therefore a win is worth 25 placement points plus 1 point for each elimination
Meet the teams....
Team Holloway x Honk
Fresh off another incredibly controversial split decision loss to UFC Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski, former 145lb King Max Holloway has a lot to prove tonight - and I wouldn't wanna be on the other side of this guy's scope.
Team Reyes x General
Another fighter coming off a controversial split decision loss here, but one who already has his eyes set on his next shot at gold a month from today - one has to think his hand/eye is stronger than ever before and he's in the shape of his life.
Team Anderson x Balls
Dominick Reyes isn't the only fighter with a title shot to look forward to - Megan Anderson (pronounced MEA-gan) just signed her name to fight Amanda Nunes for the UFC Women's Featherweight Championship last week; she'll be coming into this tournament feeling untouchable as a fighter and as a gamer.
Team Hill x WSD
Jamahal Hill is the biggest prospect in this tournament and brings a scrappiness to the table like none other because of it - he's also got the most recent win on his record out of all of our competitors tonight, and appears to have already built a little team chemistry with White Sox Dave....
Fighters were instructed to choose their own cornermen/other teammates, so you'll meet them as we go live.
