Table for Nikita Krylov?[edit]

Not sure if someone regularly watches new MMA pages to do this, but if someone enjoys (or tolerates) making record tables, Nikita Krylov could use one. I started, but got very bored. InedibleHulk (talk) 00:08, January 27, 2014 (UTC)

Strikeforce GP mess[edit]

An IP has fiddled with a bunch of stuff today, largely related to the Strikeforce Heavyweight tournament. Apparently, it didn't happen. I've reverted on Silva, someone else may want the rest. InedibleHulk (talk) 18:07, February 18, 2014 (UTC)

"Total gate" field for event articles[edit]

Is there some sort of partial or subgate I'm missing that makes the "total" part necessary? If so, should we list those, too? If not, any reason not to change it to simply "Gate"? InedibleHulk (talk) 10:37, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

How to handle Bellator MMA going forward?[edit]

From what was said yesterday, the company will apparently be abandoning the season idea in favor of a year-round status with fewer (but bigger) individual events. So obviously a grouping under season 11 would be wrong. Here is the problem - at one point Bellator events had individual pages and Wikipedia mods struck down that idea and the resolution was to have the season pages. Any suggestions on what we do now with it seeming they are going to focus more on individual events? Udar55 (talk) 16:17, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Do it like the UFC (2014 in UFC), with yearly or half-yearly lists if it gets too long. Poison Whiskey 19:28, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
I think Poison Whiskey has it right. Papaursa (talk) 19:22, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
Okay, with four matches announced for Bellator 123, I went ahead and started the Bellator MMA in 2014. With no weekly shows/season, the rest of 2014 can go here. Udar55 (talk) 17:58, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, if you weren't totally confused, you should be now. Scott Coker announced that this fall section will continue the weekly events and they have referred to it as Season 11 in official Bellator press releases. So, the page has been changed to Bellator MMA: Season Eleven. Udar55 (talk) 16:10, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Should Joanna Jedrzejczyk get an article?[edit]

Joanna Jedrzejczyk apparently was also a Muay Thai world champion also as well as being an UFC entrant. Dwanyewest (talk) 05:48, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

UFC entrant isn't enough. She needs three fights in a top-tier promotion, by the rules. If you could clarify and verify what this apparent Muay Thai world championship was about, that might help her notability case. In any event, she won and looked alright doing it. UFC is building toward a Poland show and their new weight class. She'll have her significant coverage (and next two fights) sooner than later. InedibleHulk (talk) 01:00, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

Mixed martial arts[edit]

An IP keeps adding the following to the lead of Mixed martial arts:

The greatest MMA fighter of all time (G.O.A.T) is considered by experts, fighters and fans to be either heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko (fan favorite) or middleweight Anderson Silva. UFC color commentator Joe Rogan responded to a fan's question: "Joe, is Fedor the Greatest Of All Time? It's him or Anderson, and I could see the argument going either way honestly. Both guys have had truly magical moments in competition against some of the best in the world."

This clearly doesn't belong in the lead, no other sport lists anything like it in the lead.--Phospheros (talk) 20:26, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, this isn't Sherdopedia. Besides, Dan Severn's the goat. InedibleHulk (talk) 01:02, July 30, 2014 (UTC)
I agree and reverted yet another attempt to put it back. Its clearly a supported POV which would have a hard time being in any part of the article. Definitely not the lead. The best place to discuss this is the article talk page.Peter Rehse (talk) 14:00, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
