Fresno Fight Club Rankings Update – July 28th

The USA Today/SB Nation consensus rankings have been updated, and can be viewed here: http://www.bloodyelbow.com/rankings

The big winner this month (probably much to the dismay of most teams in the league) is Darryl Howerton’s Wisdom & Might! This is primarily due to lightweight Melvin Guillard, who extended his winning streak by defeating Shane Roller at UFC 132, gaining 16 points in the process. Check out what happened to your team here: https://fantasyfights.wordpress.com/2011-fresno-fight-club-standings-and-rosters/

TRADE DEADLINE AND FREE AGENT DEADLINE BOTH UPCOMING

The deadline for all trades in the FFC takes place on August 14th. This means that any owner that wishes to make a trade must notify me before 12:00 AM on August 15th. Keep in mind that there is a limit of two trades per month.

The deadline for all free agent pickups in the FFC will take place on September 14th. This is not specifically mentioned on the rules and guidelines page. However, there is a very good reason that I’m imposing this deadline. Ultimately, I want this league to be won by the owner that had the best strategy and chose the best fighters. One huge upset could potentially lead to a “rush” to pick up a fighter, and I don’t want the question of who wins to be answered by “the person who picked up Fighter X first.” Again, I want the winner to be the owner that truly displayed the best strategy.
