Ok, so my previous source that provided me with every card instantly streaming is no more. So my new strategy is a little different.
Through different means, I am acquiring EVERY televised event from 2011. Starting November 1, I will be watching, literally, thousands of fights to assemble at Top-100 fights of a year, which has never been done.
Here's where I need you gents. Those that have contributed to my Top-100 site, I love and appreciate it, but we're gonna go a little different route now.
Due to a paperwork mixup, I have nothing but time on my hands until probably the first of the year. That gives me lots of time to literally view every MMA card that was broadcasted this year.
That, you need not worry, what I need is a grading system.
If I am viewing thousands of fights, I need a definitive ranking system rather then "this fight was more awesome than this one". My mental state, often influenced by whiskey, can vary from day to day.
So, this is my question for you, gents (and ladies): Grading a Fight:
What I have so far is:
Striking (1-5): 5 is Diaz vs. Daley
Grappling (1-5): 5 is Lentz vs. Oliveira
Drama (1-5): 5 is Evans vs. Ortiz
So please help, my friends, I'm trying to put together something that's never been done and I want you motherfuckers with me! What other criteria can you think of?
When I say drama, I don't mean UFC main-event. A prelim on Tachi Palace can be far more dramatic than a UFC main-event, Rashad vs. Tito just happened to be awesome.
