    I was thinking that if enough people are game, we could do a rewind discussion of an old event. I know some of you don't have FightPass but there are other means to acquire an old event. Maybe we can all pick an event one of these weekends and start it during normal fight time 9-10 ET and sticky the discussion thread.

    Any interest?

    Absolutely. I go into depression when there's little activity here, and there's only so much news available to post, without becoming TMZ. So heck yeah, I am down. Pick an event and let's get it started. Sticky the thread at the top.

    I'm game, especially if it's pre-100 UFC, any Pride events, or some of the great Strikeforce stuff......if it's going to be anything UFC from 2013 or 2014, not enough time has past yet for me to have any interest. lol


    Great Idea!

    My nomination for the inaugural event......

    I would be in. Hell, I might even be willing to make bets for these events.

    PRIDE in chronological order? Starting at 1 of course. This could keep us busy until summer.

    This could be pretty cool if we had a dozen at least to go through with this. I've watched 1-4 in the last month with this idea in mind but never thought it could be a group thing. Id be happy to start over if we could pick a time and hit play in FP or something.

    I'm all for this. Some early ufc's would be cool. Like ufc 1-10 and UU96.

    We've got 5 in here right now. Let's try to get to 15 and set a day & time for Event #1.

    Nice! I'm down for anything but would love to do old events in order or in blocks. My vote is to start PRIDE from the beginning. To start at normal PPV times as UFC now might be easy as its pretty accessible for many but to have Sunday afternoons could work too. It'll be tough to get everyone on board for every fight but that's expected. It would be cool to make a sticky the week leading up for throw back events and for those who have FP set it up so we agree to all "hit play" at 7:00 sharp or whatever time is set. Fuck this could be sweet, good idea OP. Could ve a good way to get my biddies who dropped off interested again or even my wife. Doing UFC by sets of 10 or something is great too. Then DREAM, Bushido's tourneys, Metamoris....

    Someone's going to have to give me the Fightpass account info, because there's no way I'm buying it :)

    ^^^ My pleasure. I think I can have 3 devices? Maybe 2? I'll cover whoever needs it no problem. I'm lazy but if somebody can confirm that then we only need half the subscribers per members who watch or whatever it is.

    I'm going to have to get FP again. I used to have quite the library but I've moved so many times , that I've losta bunch. I think the only prides I have is 12-15.

    Still have about 15 or so old UFC'S on VHS. I have like I think UFC 42-80 on DVD a some random ones mixed in.

    Yeah that's my issue too bud. Exciting idea though! We could call them something like "Throwdown Throwback 1" etc. and sticky them a week in advance as someone mentioned, with a firm date and start time. Could be a blast!

    Um excuse me sir, but you will do this. Sometimes you have to make sacrifices for the good of the forum, and this would be one of those times. Quit being a puss and drink a couple of Monster Energy drinks or something for Christ's sake :)

    I'm sure I can "facilitate" getting the event to people without FightPass. I'm confident we can get 15 people on board for the first event. Hopefully the idea will grow and more people will jump on the bandwagon.

    Absolutely this, bluesville is too good of a poster to not be participating. Sometimes you have to suck it up and put the well being of your bro's ahead of your personal comfort.


    You're our boy Blue!!!!
