1) NEW FEATURE - My Wager Finder If are having trouble finding enough people to place wagers with either on the MMA Fantasy Game Talk forum or from within your fight camp then perhaps this new feature is for you. With it, you can search for people who are open to wagers on the fight you're lookin' to make some e-dough on How can I get myself on that list? There is a new option on the My Upcoming Events page right below where you make a pick for a fight that says "I'm open to wagers on this fight". Simply click this box and you will automatically come up when your pick matches what people are looking for Make sure you go back in and check off the fights you're willing to accept wagers on!

Four blockbuster matchups officially added to Pride 33! Frank Trigg, Nick Diaz, Takanori Gomi, Kazuhiro Nakamura and more!
Four blockbuster matchups officially added to Pride 33! Frank Trigg, Nick Diaz, Takanori Gomi, Kazuhiro Nakamura and more! Four blockbuster matchups have been announced for Pride FC's next show, Pride 33: The Second Coming. The show scheduled for February 24th in Las Vegas, Nevada is already headlined with the "Champion vs. Champion" showdown between Pride Middleweight Champion, Wanderlei Silva and Pride Welterweight Champion, Dan Henderson. Added to the line up is a bout between already scheduled Pride Lightweight Champion Takanori Gomi, taking on UFC standout Nick Diaz. Gomi, who is making his debut on American soil. Gomi is in for a tough fight as Diaz is a fighter regularly competing at 170 pounds, rather then 160 pounds. Thus, Diaz has the distinct size advantage going into the fight. Gomi's Lightweight Championship will not be on the line, however if Diaz can get the win, you can expect to see a title match between the two some time down the line. Diaz who has recently signed a two fight deal with Pride(and a different contract with EliteXC) will be debuting in the Japan based organization. Expect for fireworks, as both fighters are very exciting! Former UFC Welterweight Number One Contendar, and current ICON Sport Middleweight Champion Frank Trigg, will be making his return to Pride as he takes on Pride Welterweight Grand Prix winner Kazuo Misaki. Both men are coming off huge wins, with Trigg winning the ICON Sport Championship from Jason "Mayhem" Miller, and Misaki coming off the Grand Prix Championship win over Denis Kang. Trigg, who is a current Pride colour commentator has recently come out of retirement and he hopes to further himself with a win over a Top 5 ranked contendar. Trigg recently commented on coming out of retirement. “I wanted out. They wouldn’t let me out. It’s like the mob,” says Trigg. “I was done. I just wanted to be a broadcaster and help the sport any way I could. But then for like 2 months I got offers every day.” Kazuhiro Nakamura will be returning to the U.S to face off against UFC and IFL standout Travis Wiuff. Nakamura, who recently defeated Travis Galbraith in the U.S during Pride 32, will be hoping to rack up another win infront of the American audience. Wiuff is a seasoned vet with a MMA record of 42-9. He is coming off two straight wins, and hopes to advance him career by getting a win over the Top Ten ranked young judoka. This is a big fight for both men. As previously reported throughout the week, Pride Lightweight standout, Hayato "Mach" Sakurai will be taking on former King of the Cage Lightweight Champion, Mac Danzig. Danzig couldn't be in for a tougher debut in Pride, as he is taking on the #2 ranked Lightweight in MMA. Sakurai's most recent win was over Luciano Azevedo at Bushido 12. "Mach" is 0-1 on American soil with his loss thanks to former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes. Sakurai hopes to make an impression on the American fans, and he wants to show them why he is the #2 ranked Lightweight in the world. Other names that have been off and on for the event are former Pride Heavyweight Champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria, his kid brother Antonio Rogerio Nogueria, Ricardo Arona, Kazuyuki Fujita, Cung Le, Josh Neer, Joe Doerkson and Wes Sims. Pride 33 will take place on February 24th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas and will air live on pay-per-view in the United States. These four matches, along with the Silva vs Henderson main event, are five confirmed matches for the American show.

Kevin Randleman Hopitalized!
Kevin Randleman Hospitalized! - Article by: Bal K. Things just seem to keep going down hill for Kevin "The Monster" Randleman. Internet forums were on fire today, with rumors of "The Monster" being hospitalized. Sadly for Randleman, these rumors turned out to be true. Randleman's training partner and friend Wes Sims was able to verify that Randleman is infact in the hospital. "He's in the hospital, but I haven't even been able to talk to him yet." Sims did verify that it was a severe problem with his kidneys including some degree of failure. The degree of severity of this injury is still unknown. Ken Pishna, of MMAWeekly, did some research on Kidney failures and and according toWebMD.com, "....the kidneys have an amazing capacity to heal themselves. This means most patients who survive acute kidney failure can enjoy a complete recovery within one to two months. Some patients, however, need a year or so before their kidneys are fully functional again. Others, whose kidneys have been severely damaged, may go on to chronic kidney failure." The former UFC Heavyweight Champion's career has been a course for the worst as of late. With his most recent loss coming thanks to Pride Middleweight Grand Prix Champion, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, Randleman's record has been pushed to a lackluster 16-12. Randleman has been looked highly upon for having an endless amount of potential, however he has not lived up to the hype. He has had five straight losses in Pride, with his last win in Pride being what many consider a "lucky punch" knockout over Open Weight Grand Prix Winner Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic. "Cro Cop" soon avenged that loss with a 0:41 second submission victory. His total Pride record has been 4-7. A younger Randleman had an average career in the UFC, going 4-3 over a two year span. We wish Kevin all the best in recovery and hope he can make a speedy return to the MMA world!

Website updates yet again!
If you noticed that the website was down for a few minutes today, here's why! The fantasy wager system has undergone an overhaul as per numerous feedback requests from our members. You may now propose wager deals using different amounts per wagerer. For example, you may want to bet me 10 of your fantasy dollars for 100 of my fantasy dollars that underdog Eddie Sanchez will beat CroCop in their upcoming fight at UFC 67. For wagers that involve a fight result, the person proposing the wager will now set result parameters when sending the wager proposition rather than the recipient having the option to make their fight result selection. We've also added a notes field for the "Decline Wager" procedure which gives the wager recipient the option to give a brief explanation and/or comment regarding his action. The Fight Camp Directory page now will order by win percentage, then by total wins, then by camp name, with camps having only 1 member being at the bottom of the list regardless. A big thank you to all who gave us feedback on all the aforementioned, keep the improvement suggestions coming! Our website navigation has been slightly re-organized, so don't get confused! Everything is still here, just ordered and separated a little differently In other website news, Pride has confirmed 4 more fights to the upcoming Pride 33 card: Takanori Gomi vs Nick Diaz, Kazuhiro Nakamura vs Travis Wiuff, Hayato Sakurai vs Mac Danzig, and Kazuo Misaki vs Frank Trigg. Matt Hughes as also confirmed via his personal website that he'll be fighting TUF4 runner-up Chris Lytle at UFC 68. All these upcoming bouts have been posted, so make your picks and wagers! Thank you to all who contacted us regarding the open forum moderator positions. For now (until we outgrow things) we are set in this department, but still could use a couple more passionate, talented, knowledgeable MMA writers to join newly appointed writer brownpimp88 in keeping us all up to date on MMA news and happenings. If this sounds like your bag, then contact the site admin for details. We've been up and running for a week and a half now and are approaching the 1,000 member mark. A big thank you to all those who helped spread the word and invited your friends!

Just a few updates...
We have 2 more confirmed fights for the season opening UFC 67 event: Hoger vs Lyoto and Frankie Edgar vs Tyson Griffin. Make sure you get your picks in before fight night on the My Upcoming Events page. We're also getting close to having enough confirmed bouts taking place in the upcoming Pride 33 and UFC 68 to add them to the events list as well. In other site news, we've had quite a few new member signups in the last few days which is great to see. A big thank you to all who have helped spread the word! Make sure stop by the Introduce Yourself forum to let us know who you are and how you came to be a mixed martial arts aficionado. We'd also like to announce the welcome addition of 4 more moderators (in alpha order): MMA, nate22, Omega, and zephead. Thanks also to all who have submitted feedback in helping us come up with ways to improve the site functionality, suggesting useful features to make things easier around here, and pointing out bugs to get fixed. In the upcoming weeks we'll be adding more features and improvements, so stay tuned and keep the suggestions coming! One final note: Lots of folks have been asking about having the upcoming Ultimate Fight Night being included for picks and wagers. While we understand that those who have found the site already would love to have an event a little sooner than February 3rd to score some points and place some wagers on, please bear with us for just a week and a half longer! /beg. The website hasn't even been online for a full week yet, and we'd like to give as many people as possible the chance to get in on the action from the season's start. Don't worry, all future Fight Night events will be featured as fair game, I promise! UPDATE ADDENDUMS We've added the confirmed matchups for both Pride 33 and UFC 68 to the table to get the picking and wagering rolling. Our own nate22 has secured an upcoming interview with none other than the Vanilla Gorilla himself, Lodune Sincaid. Please post your questions and suggestions for the interview here. If you'd like to see a fight camp ranking system implemented then we'd like to hear your input on how you'd like to see it done, forum topic here.

()
Greetings and welcome Pride and UFC MMA fans! MMAPlayground.com's first fight season is about to begin! This inaugural season will kick off with UFC 67 and will span through the next 9 Pride or UFC events after that.
