Bad News, You Guys: MMA FightPicker Is Dead

MMA FightPicker CagePotato betting online Aaron Rampey
(Remember them.)

It’s true. Our year-old MMA FightPicker game — which was played so passionately by so few of you — has just become too costly to keep around, and we’re taking it to live on a farm upstate where it’ll be cared for by a nice man. So if you’ve had problems lately joining pools or getting your PotatoChips paid out, that’s why. Sincere apologies to everyone who grew to love the poor thing, and congrats to those who actually did well on it (Rampey, finland, et al.).

It’s a sad day, to be sure, but this doesn’t have to be the end of CagePotato’s foray into gaming. If you have ideas for other MMA-related games you’d like to see on CP, please let us know in the comments section. Thanks for understanding.

This seriously blows!!! Couldn't you just cut down on costs by not providing prizes (other than imaginary potato chips)? It's one thing that kept me coming back to cagepotato... now not so much. Truly a bad decision on your part to stop providing the Fightpicker.

LAME!!!!!!!!!

Seriously fight picker was really all cagepotato had. Cagepotato only adds like 3 or 4 stories a day. Usually copied and pasted from other sites. No real news updates ever and now no fight picker. Goodbye cagepotato.com/

No more Ben.. No more Fight Picker... so what is the reason to come to the site anymore...
ToothGuy- December 14, 2010 at 1:10 am
I'm okay with that. I remember when it first came out and I was in the screenshot of the top 10 rankings on one of the articles. Made my day. Also stopped playing the game.

My thoughts -

I started playing the FightPicker things to win the cool prizes. I actually signed up for BlockBuster's promotion and have paid $12 a month since for movie rental crap.

Immediately after I signed up I had 2 weeks worth of problems receiving my chips, and missed out on the iPad and other promotions. Then when I finally got my chips there were no promotions anymore.

I stopped playing immediately : )

If I were going to try to put a game together I would try to be the first site to successfully put together a *good* MMA fantasy picker that didn't try to mimic football or something.

Thank you CP my stranglehold on 10th place "Top Pools Winners" will live in infamy....and maybe everyone on the leader boards will get a CP a t-shirt or something?

FightPicker was cool while it lasted but our true talent seems to be the caption of the week writing, so more of those please

Nooooooooo! I was definatley heading to the leader boards soon!
I've only been playing since June, but it has been great! Sad to see it go
Mdot50- December 13, 2010 at 3:53 pm
I've got 2,000 chips left from playing, i enjoyed the game its a bummer your taking it down.... what can I do with the chips?!?
nickyroose- December 13, 2010 at 3:17 pm
Damnit! I talked like 6 of my friends into playing and now all for naught. Oh well, my 1,057 chips down the old shitter. How about some T-shirts fro anyone over 1,000?
DazedNConfused- December 13, 2010 at 2:29 pm
Well that's retarded. What else am I going to come here for? the trolling comments? the gay jokes? Jake Sheilds bashing? ahhh okay, you convinced me, I'm here to stay.

Make a game guessing who will be the next person on a fight card to get vagineyed. And which MMA fighter/personality will come out gay and try to fuck that eye. I've got Rashad Evans eye turning into an Optic-cunt, and Dana White finally coming out, cutting Arianny, Creating Ring Boys, and going interracial on "Suga's" eye cooter.

^^^ Or a desert survival game with Evan Tanner. Find the water!

What...? Too far?

Okay, how about a game like GTA, but you play as Joe Son. Okay, that went too far.

I'm just going to keep clicking that Fightpicker link until you guys update it. I thought I was going to do awesome in both pools I joined. I'm crushed. Like a can put in front of Hershel Walker.
KINGMADE- December 13, 2010 at 1:45 pm
You guys should make a Street Racing with Mask game. Avoid the drunks! Classless I know.
RwilsonR- December 13, 2010 at 1:33 pm
That would be awesome if it did happen! I'd pay $0.99 for that from the app store.
Viva Hate- December 13, 2010 at 1:11 pm
Just make sure there is an iPad version as well.

Just rewrite Angry Birds using MMA fighters instead of birds and pigs. That should make money!
ben- December 13, 2010 at 12:53 pm
 @ RWilsonR : I seriously love that idea.  We'll see if we can make it happen.
RwilsonR- December 13, 2010 at 12:35 pm
As far as other CP/MMA related games, I think you guys need to create the official CP punch machine online time waster game. The player could choose between controlling that tall dude who scored like 990 on it, or Pat Barry with his shorts rolled up into a makeshift thong. You could have a little bobblehead of Rex13 in the background that would taunt you as you played. You could even offer it as an iPhone app. It could be the next Angry Birds.

Speaking of rumors, Sudos, I just heard Nick Diaz disguised himself as an mma journalist(I know, WTF is that, right?) and went to Mayhem's gym to get an interview over the weekend and Mayhem found out who he really was and shot Nick dead and then Nick's family pressed charges but the got dropped because Nick caught the bullet with his teeth like Bruce Lee and is actually alive and well the judge declared a catchweight so they'll fight sometime next year when Mayhem gets out of jail for he breaching his Bully Beatdown contract! Crazy

Excuse me while I poor a little bit of my Old English 800 40oz out for my dead homie. RIP FightPicker, we will miss you man!
Sudos KFC- December 13, 2010 at 12:20 pm
should have just given everyone who signed up like 1000 chips to play with instead of nickel and diming imaginary money.

that being said, hopefully fight picker meets "the rumor shithole" or whatever they call it on that farm upstate.
FlashinLeather- December 13, 2010 at 12:13 pm
Yea I quit after all that weird TV stuff went down and CP wanted me to buy potato chips
rearnakedchickenchoke- December 13, 2010 at 12:13 pm
So what happened to make it blow up? As a web developer, I'm curious to know what actually went wrong.
