***If you've never played before, you don't have to do anything to join except post your picks to this thread using the template. Please use the letter X.***

INSTRUCTIONS

Making your picks.
Copy the provided template for the event. Pick a single winner and method for every fight in the event by placing an “x” in the bracket. Post your filled out template to this thread.

Changing your picks. You can edit your picks until the event starts. Any picks or edits made after the start of a fight will result in a score of zero. This will be based on the post timestamp, not the content of the edit. (e.g. don’t edit a typo or something and change your timestamp)

If you want to edit your picks but the edit window on the post has ended, you can put your picks in a new post, and only your latest picks will count.

It is good practice when doing something unusual to announce what you’re doing by including a sentence or two about it in your post, or to ask first if you’re unsure. This can also save us time when tallying the scores.

Fight card changes. When there are late notice fight card changes, instructions will be posted at the time on how to handle them.

All players must maintain the same bout order for their picks, regardless of the actual fight card bout order, so our spreadsheet calculator can score your picks correctly.

If one fighter is switched out for another, a pick for the fighter that is out will be transferred automatically to a pick for the replacement fighter, so you need only edit your pick if the change causes you to want to change your pick/method.

A very late card change such as Werdum/Willis, which affected two different fights, may result in zero points awarded for all players for those fights to maintain fairness.

SCORING

2 points are awarded for every correct winning fighter.

1 bonus point is awarded if you also correctly predict the method of the win.

For our purposes, KO and TKO are treated as one.

If you miss a fight, or accidentally put x's for both fighters, you will get zero points for that fight. If you put two x's for the same fighter with different methods, you will not be eligible for the method bonus point.

Special Circumstances:

A draw results in five points.

A submission to strikes results in a bonus point for everyone who picked either KO or submission.

All points are awarded based on the outcome the night of the fight. Rulings that are later overturned on appeal do not affect the scores for this game.

WINNING

Standings and stats will be posted for each event, so you are welcome to play only part of a season if you like, and can jump in and out any time.

The championship is decided based on cumulative score for the whole season. Any other statistics provided are just informational, unless a tie-breaker is needed, in which case we will look to the percentage of correct fight winners chosen throughout the season. If you win, @

Splinty @Splinty will change your name to gold so everyone will know you're the current champ when you post in the forums, until the next champ takes your belt!

Let's get this started and end the reign of paper champ ConorMcGregorNutHugger @Lars
What was disappointing about last season was that former champ RaginCajun @RaginCajun nuraknu @nuraknu Shinkicker @Shinkicker and @Willthiswork couldn't muster the stones to finish the season. It says a lot about nurses, women and shake weight owners. It's no wonder why you broads earn 30% less than men. As for the rest of you, knuckle up you rotten motherfuckers.

Ha ha. I’m rewatching the Soprano’s from the start and I watched that episode yesterday. That was the exact scene I was thinking of.

If you would have told me 5 years ago, that we’d have a Jewish champ, and a fluidly gendered person running the tournament, I wouldn’t have believed you. This is growth.

This weeks template is a sorts of goofy. All sorts of changes in the card.
It’s the last time I’ll ever use the UFC’s own website.

Maybe they could start paying their webmasters too.
