    Welcome to Sherdog!

    It is our hope that this forum will be your consolidated source for all mixed martial arts news, and your unified community.

    This is a private forum - so posting is a privilege, not a right. All rules are subjective to administrative interpretation.

    Forum Rules
    • No Fighter Bashing - Criticism is fine, but flaming is not. Please note that an unsubstantiated accusation of steroids and PEDs is fighter bashing. In regards to female fighters, posting inappropriate, sexual or graphic comments is considered trolling and fighter bashing.
    • No Flaming Comments - Do not go over the top with your fellow posters. Any graphic attack or comment that is deemed over the line will be met with an infraction worthy of the offense.
    • No Empty Posting - Do not make empty posts which do not contribute to the forums (e.g. "too long/didn't read," "Rickson by armbar," "huge if true," irrelevant pictures, etc.). Do not make any tape trading, selling, or spamming posts.
    • No Graphic Posting - Do not post, quote, or solicit anything that is sexually graphic (including pedophilia and incest) or excessively gross. Posting pornography will result in a ban. Dead bodies, Street Fighting Videos, and visible urls to porn/nude sites are not allowed. Encouraging, promoting, celebrating, and responding to a pornographic thread is discouraged and could result in an infraction if deemed appropriate.
    • No Copyrighted Material - Do not copy and paste an entire article; and do not post, nor request, illegal streams. Avoid posting/soliciting video clips of events recently shown on PPV.
    • No Profanity in Thread Titles - Do not use profanity in thread titles. Do not circumvent the word filter by using alternative letters, numbers, symbols, spaces, fonts, etc., in a word to prevent it from being censored. Posting pictures with banned words on them also counts as circumventing the word filter.
    • Do Not Make Multiple Accounts - Registering or using an alternate account will result in an infraction or ban.
    • No Trolling - Do not make posts that are deliberately offensive or provocative with the aim of upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them. This includes making accusations of fixed fights and race-baiting posts. Orchestrating forum raids is also considered trolling and can result in a ban.
    Violating any of these rules can result in a ban, depending upon its severity, the history of the poster, and the moderator's discretion.
    • Posting someone's personal information, porn/nudity, racism/racial and nonracial slurs are considered severe violations, which will result in a ban.
    • We're only interested in what happens regarding this website. So if your brother, ex-girlfriend, or roommate gets into your account and posts infractions, the account will take the bullet regardless.
    • Avatar and signature bets should be handled via PM. If a person bails on a sig/av bet, it is not a moderator's/admin's responsibility to fix the problem. Account bets are not permitted.
    • Please read threads stuck at the top of the subforums before posting in them. Rules are occasionally updated, so please pay attention to any stickies, and check this thread for updates.
    • Once you're banned, do not try to re-register by purchasing a Platinum account; the account will be banned and the money will be forfeited.
    • Use the report function or message a moderator if you see a poster violating any of these rules.
    • All threads will be closed after 1,000 posts. If it is a reoccurring thread, link the previous thread(s) in the new one.
    • If you have any questions, please contact a moderator or administrator for assistance.
    Thank you, and enjoy the forums!

    The Wasteland Hand Guide

    MMA threads that are not suitable for the main fight subforums, will be redirected to The Wasteland for further discussion. Please note that this is not a demotion, but rather a more appropriate forum.

    Here are some of the type of threads that get moved to The Wasteland..
    • Personal Ranking Threads (e.g. Here is my top 10 pound-for-pound rankings)
    • Betting Threads (e.g. I just put $100 on Anderson Silva) - There will be a thread for these.
    • Joke threads (e.g. Chuck Liddell with that look in his eyes vs. Motivated B.J. Penn)
    • Rehashed Topic Threads (e.g. Nick Diaz 1,3,5)
    • Chat threads (e.g. Which fighter would you want to go drinking with?)
    Although these are the typical threads that get moved to The Wasteland, a thread may redirected there at a moderator's discretion for other reasons.
    • If a poster makes numerous joke threads, or has repeatedly made threads in the wrong forum, he may receive an infraction.
    • If you have a question, please direct your query to the support forum thread. Note that the support thread is for questions and explanations only, so please be civil when inquiring about a moved or deleted thread.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works.


    How do I embed YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and Dailymotion?
    For all of these websites, you only need to insert the URL.

    For example, if you put a URL like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0

    You'll get this:


    How do I mention a poster in a post?
    To mention a poster, use the @ symbol, followed by the poster's username whom you want to mention.

    For example, if you put @Augustus Caesar

    You'll get this: @Augustus Caesar
    How do I add or change my avatar?
    If you look at the top right corner of the forum page, you'll see your username listed. When you click on your username, you'll see a dropbox filled with several options - choose the one listed as avatar. Then click on the choose file button, and upload a picture. Make sure you click save changes when you are finished.

    What is the follow feature, and how does it work?
    The follow feature allows for posters to stay connected with each other in the forum community. In order to follow a poster, you need to go on his/her profile page and click on the follow button. Once you are following a poster, you will be able to see his/her activity in Your News Feed, which is located in the right top corner, under your username, in the dropbox selection. You'll also be able to see when the members whom you follow are online by checking the forum homepage: http://forums.sherdog.com/ on the right-hand side.
