It's that time of year again!  The 10th Annual UG Secret Santa!
Here's how participate:

1. Send an email to me at: UGSecretSanta@gmail.com

2. In that email I'll need your REAL NAME, ADDRESS, and UG Screen Name.

3. I will then randomly select from the final list who will be a Secret Santa for whom.

4. There will not be a spending limit but in the past most people sent gifts in the $30 range. Popular gift ideas are Fight Team or MMA themed shirts, Fight DVDs, hats, books, etc.

5. THIS IS MOST IMPORTANT! Once you've signed up and sent me an email, come back to this thread and post your wish list along with your SHIRT / HAT / and SHORT SIZES and if there is a DVD or something you'd like to have. That way each Secret Santa can have an idea of what to get for their recipient. This will make it a little less hard to buy for a stranger.  DO NOT EMAIL ME YOUR SIZES AND WISH LIST.  POST THEM HERE ON THIS THREAD.  If you don't post your wish list and sizes, it's  your own fault if you get a gift that doesn't fit, etc.  Also, posting here will let everyone see who's playing this year. Note: This is a very simple format. You sign up, you get a name and address, you purchase a gift and mail it or have it sent via the online company you purchased from. The entire process from the minute you get your recipient's info to the time of purchase could take as little as 15 minutes - if you do everything online. THERE'S NO NEED TO TAKE THREE WEEKS OR THREE MONTHS TO GET THIS DONE.  There is no need for anyone to wait beyond Christmas to receive their gift. So, if this is not that simple for you, for any reason, please don't register.

Again, if you sign up, Please - Please - Please honor your recipient and do your part. NO EXCUSES, NO MISHAPS. We are all adults... if you sign up, play right. I don't care about personal issues, work related drama, travel issues or other "life" problems. If you're dealing with any of these things, DON'T PLAY.  IF YOU REGISTER YOU ARE SAYING THAT YOU ARE WILLING AND ABLE TO DO THIS TASK WITHIN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.  We had over 80 people last year and this is our 10th year, so let's keep the positive vibes going.  ONLY REGISTER IF YOU ARE ABLE TO PURCHASE AND SEND A GIFT, WITH NO PROBLEMS.  

*A quick thank you to those players from last year who stepped up and gave gifts to more than one recipient. You really helped a lot by picking up the slack of those who did not commit to their giving.  I would prefer that this be a non-issue this year. 


REGISTRATION: November 21st - November 29th.  It's a bit shorter than last year but this is plenty of time to get registered and it will give me time to get everyone their recipient info in time for you take advantage of holiday sales. It also leaves a lot of time to get your gifts purchased and sent so that EVERY PERSON GETS THEIR GIFT ON TIME FOR CHRISTMAS. 

EXTRAS:
I love doing this but it takes a crazy amount of time to organize and keep running smoothly.  With that, I'm not going to take the time to babysit this event this year like I've done in previous years. This is a very easy process and with the right focus, you can be done with it quickly and enjoy being a part of UG holiday tradition. So here are some reminders:
1. Post your sizes and wish list on this thread so your Santa will know what to send. If you have a person who does not list these things, buy them a book, a blue name or a gift card to the UG store. Keep it simple.
2. Once you get your recipient's info, make your purchase immediately, send it, and be done with it.
3. Please be sure that UGSecretSanta@Gmail.com is in your address book to prevent the spam filter getting it.
4. Secret Santa is an International event and last year we had 8 countries represented.  To keep shipping costs and timing down to a minimum I'm keeping countries together this year as best as possible.  So, as best as I can manage it, all players will be shipping to other players within their own country.  Hopefully that helps smooth things out a bit, internationally.   
5.  I'll post more notes, tid-bits and info as I think of it.

That's it! Thanks for playing and have fun. Happy Holidays, in advance.

Registration will close on the 29th.  You will have your email with your recipient's info by Wednesday, December 4th.  Then you can shop and ship away! 

Again, the rules are simple.  Once you get your email from me, just do the deal.  I will not be replying to emails unless there is a specific emergency.  I hope you all understand.  I am extremely busy and this process is super time consuming.  So help me by keeping it simple and most of all HAVE FUN!!!

Thanks, everyone!

10 years!!! This is a special year.  

A decade of UG Secret Santa

For me this is a great feeling.  Thank you to those of you who have done it every year, or at least several years in a row.  And, welcome, to those of you who are new.

Whoever gets me, DO NOT get me anything expensive. i need some cheap focus mitts or thai pads... Fuck it doesn't even have to be MMA related. Just do your thing.

IN!

Shirt Size: XL
Shorts Size: 36
Favorite Fighters: Ian McCall, Ricardo Arona, Thiago Tavares, Carlos Condit, Eddie Alvarez, Hector Lombard
Favorite Brands: ClinchGear, Jaco, RVCA

With all of that said, I have 2 boys, 6 & 9(Small/Medium/Large Youth) that would really love something, as I have really all I could ask for…except for

http://www.mmawarehouse.com/elevation_training_mask_2.0_mustache_sleeve/etm-1029.html

The 6 year old is starting his 2nd year of wrestling, and needs shoes(Size 13)

http://www.eastbay.com/product/model:198396/sku:33790990/asics-matflex-4-boys-grade-school/black/tan/?cm=GLOBAL%20SEARCH%3A%20KEYWORD%20SEARCH&size=13%2E0

The 9 year old trains grappling & karate, and would probably like shirts or rash guards, or board shorts. He would also like a killer pro style mouthguard, with some design a kid would like.

http://www.mmawarehouse.com/shock_doctor_youth_ultra_compression_short_with_ultra_carbon_flex_cup/shk-1078.html?start=8&cgid=youth-mma-gear

They are great boys. And just suggestions for what they would like. They would probably want candy if they could have anything--but I'm not sure I would trust candy from a UG'er.

The last year has been particularly tough with the divorce, but the US Secret Santa is something I always look forward to every year--and something I did that the ex was always particularly cunty about. I'm glad that bitch is gone.

This has been my favorite thing to do for Christmas the past 5 years. Really looking forward to brightening someone's Holiday!

By the way, last year I received a really cool gift with 100= vote ups…I've always been hooked up!

With that being said, I'm more than happy to step up for any Christmas bitched that welch on the event, though I would prefer to not see it happen.

Props to Fera for doing this again!

Big Anderson Silva fan. Pretty much anything to do with him is good.

Also UFC gear is always good too.

I collect pocket knives and I like cool Multi tools.   

It would be hard for me to not like something so bring it!

I'm in again, thanks for running it again!

 

XXXL shirt and jacket

40" waist

7 5/8 hat

 

Anything Pride related would be cool

Posters from Bellators 35 and 85 would be awesome (I was at them)!

Favorite fighters: Fedor, Igor, Sakuraba, Weidman, Cro Cop, Gomi, Bendo, Pettis, Cowboy, Condit, Shogun, Wanderlei, Creepy, Hendo, Chael, Hunt, Coleman, Renzo

Favorite brands: Tri coasta, 6 deuce, nothing too gawdy

If you have a black belt in computers, I'd love a Dream DVD set

I'd like any old, non-UFC MMA tapes or DVDs

 I also like kickboxing, any old K-1 stuff would be cool

I also love scotch, cigars, and beer (not IPAs)

 

My address will be changing soon, but I'm not sure when. It should be the same through the end of the year, I'll contact FERA BRABA if it'll change any sooner. Phone Post 3.0

Fera, I want to sign up and will do so but I will be moving to my new residence on December 11 and will not find out the actual addy until then. Is there a way I can still register?

In, I'd love to get MMA themed books most of all. Or some Classic DVDs such as Pride stuff. (I absolutely loved the Pride era of MMA) The only book I have a physical copy of is Gary Goodridge's so any other ones would be great.

I'm a big fat bastard so unless you can find 5xl clothing please don't bother. Phone Post 3.0

No problem.  As long as you get your gift sent out on time, that's the most important thing.  Whom ever I choose to be your Santa, I'll just let them know that they'll have a little extra time to shop until you give me your new addy that I can forward to them.  Thanks for the heads up.  Send that email over and register.  We'll take it from there.
