Just as a heads up, this August 1st, W.S.O.F. also has an event, I think it's 22, Palhares vs Shields. I love to watch Palhares fight, so when you are downloading, don't forget about that event too. 8pm EST. I love the leg lock specialists. :D

Here I am, knowing the champ will emerge victorious, gets less points then the guy who picks the loser facepalmtongue
I need to reassess my picking procedure drunk

Right? I picked every winner, and lost to three people who picked losers tongue

*ahem* Picking the winner is a 1 in 2 shot. Picking the way a fight finishes is a 1 in 3 shot. Picking when a fight finishes is a 1 in 6 shot. (Yes I realize it's a little more complicated than that as if you choose "decision" you are automatically choosing a round AND there are 3 round and 5 round fights :P)
.
HOWEVER if you whinerssweartongue want me to take the EASIESTtongue of the choices you have to make and WEIGH it more heavily, then that can be done. tonguetonguetonguechuckle (don't you guys feel small now? lol.titter)
.
As for you Herb Dean haters, I only have one thing to say to you....finger....oh wait, I have another hand fingerhuffy.
.
Was Gomi out? Probably, but that wasn't Lauzon's call to make. I often get on Mir about being TOO aggressive when it's obvious the fight is over, but the truth of the matter is that you fight until the ref calls it. Even Lauzon said that he thought "oh $h!t, I should have stayed on him" when he turned around after walking away, just before Dean called it off.
.
I have no doubt that within a few more punches on the ground, Dean would have called it. In my opinion, I think Dean has deserved the benefit of the doubt in all the classic matches he has reffed and reffed well. Including that infamous "you broke your arm. No I didn't" match. Even Rogan doubted him in that match until they saw the slo mo replay.
.
I will maintain that Herb wanted Gomi to get every last chance he could to fight on. That's my story and I am sticking to it.tonguetitter
.
Full props to Lauzon for not wanting to inflict any more damage on one of his heroes. Just realize that if Gomi had manage to collect himself quickly we would have had another Shamrock "tapped/didn't tap" on our hands.
.
While I remember, just a quick few comments. Bisping's "win" of Leites was uninspiring. No way he can really believe that with that caliber of a win he is in the running for a title shot.facepalm
.
Dillashaw dominated Barao. You could just see the difference in the confidence. Y'all know I don't care really about this weight class, but for whatever Barao was before, he isn't now. Dillashaw OWNS him.
.
Barboza/Felder. I got to admit, I like Felder. The switch kick and speed got the better of Felder I think. But he has the tools, and I LOVE the look on his face when he fights. Just so focused and determined. I don't think it changed either when he was hitting or getting hit. It was a close fight, and I am kinda surprised it wasn't a split decision.
.
I hate women's MMA. Appreciate the skill but it's not entertainment for me. I don't get that "YES" feeling watching them battle. At any rate, Tate has earned another loss shot to Rousey. As another one of our commenters mentioned, outside of Cyborg coming down in weight, there is going to be no challenge to Rousey. Tate hasn't gotten that much better in a year and a half to really challenge Rousey. She got subbed in 1st round, the first time, she got subbed in the 3rd round, the second time, now what...getting subbed in the 5th round? I guess you can call that an improvement?facepalm
.
And I know I am walking past Correia here...but so will Rousey. Rousey has said she wants to punish Correia and not make it quick. That is the ONLY reason this fight will go past the 1st round.
.
Correia has 2...TWO, KO wins in 9 fights. All the rest are decisions, including her UFC debut which was a split decision with Julia Kedzie. Julia Kedzie for crying out loud!?! How this is headlining a UFC event is way beyond me.facepalm
.
Anyway, way too long of a post, no one is going to read it, so let me just end by saying, get your picks in!!!

Lawlor/Villante
fight ended. I didn't watch the prelims and instead of taking the info directly from the UFC site I used bleacher report and they had it wrong, so I had to go back and correct the points. This was the site I used for the results, but next time I will use the UFC site directly!

My thanks to titovicanjoey353 for catching my error and my sincerest apologies to titovicanjoey353 and DarthChris3733 for they were the ones affected by my error. :(

Since Pringlescan23.24K is taking a time out, I thought I would keep the Pick 'Em going...or at least try to. :)
.
Rules are going to be basically the same: Pringlescan Pick 'Em Rules.
.
If you are too lazy to click over (like I am :D), then here is the basic, BASIC, rules:

 toggle spoiler
-5 points for picking the winner, round, and how they won
-3 points for picking two of the above three
-1 point for picking one of the above, above three.

EXAMPLE: If you choose Fighter X, Round 2, via Submission, and Fighter Y wins in Round 2 with a Sub, you get.....3 points.

.
Just a couple of slight changes which I think will make the game easier to play.
.
1) I think the choices and results possible are diverse enough, especially as we are including not only the main card, but the prelims as well, to not need to choose FOTN or the kind of sub.
.
2)This is more of a clarification, if someone choose fighter x over fighter y by decision, they get the full 5 points if correct, not just 3 for picking winner and how they won.
.
How to play is basically just copy and paste the fight card below, then signify your picks in one of two ways:

 toggle spoiler
BOLD your choice and add the round and the how at the end;
e.g. Ken Shamrock vs Kimbo Slice Rd 1, Sub
or
Type it in BOLD at the end of the fight line;
e.g. Ken Shamrock vs Kimbo Slice (Shamrock, Rd 1, Sub)

The important thing is to get your picks in BOLD. :)

.
Once you get your picks in, if you want to change them, just please edit your post. Also feel free to edit your posts up until fight time, but in the spirit of fairness, please try and make your edits at least an hour before the fights start, if not longer.
.
If for whatever reason a fighter has to be replaced at the last minute, that is the day of the fight, everyone will get a full 5 points for that fight regardless of whom they chose. If a fight needs to be canceled, well no one gets any points for a fight that never happened. ;-P
.
With that being said, let's get on to UFC 190 Rousey vs Correia! (The hyperlinked (i) is a link to the Wiki page of that person, unless I couldn't find it, in which case it is a link to their UFC Fighter page. Just in case you want a little more info before making your pick :))

Max Points = 40. Winners are in the spoiler, so if you haven't seen it yet....you've been warned! :)

Main Card
TJ Dillashaw vs Renan Barao (Dillashaw, KO, Rd 4)
Misha Tate vs Jessica Eye (Tate, Decision)
Edson Barboza vs Paul Felder (Barboza, Decision)
Joe Lauzon vs Takanori Gomi (Lauzon, KO, 1st)
.
Prelims
Gian Villante vs Tom Lawlor (Lawlor, KO, 1st2nd)
Jim Miller vs Danny Castillo (Miller, Decision)
Kenny Robertson vs Ben Saunders (Saunders, Decision)
Eddie Wineland vs Bryan Caraway (Caraway, Decision)

.
Breakdown of the points scored are as follows:
Name 0,0,0,0.....0,0,0,0
.
First zero is how many points "Name" scored on the first fight on our list, which in this case was Dillashaw vs Barao. Second zero is how many points "Name" scored on the second fight on our list which in this case was Tate vs Eye. Etcetera. The dots in between are just trying to separate the main card fight from the prelims and make the scores look easier to read.
.
I am listing in the order that the members posted on this thread. Ranking order I will put in the OP as well as update the cumulative points for those who have played in more than one Pick 'Em.

I did double check, but am not infallible so if there was an error made, either in addition or in assigning points, please PM me or comment here or on the MMA Thread Proper.
