Shows more and more Bellator is a 2nd rate promotion.

facepalmThere aren't enough facepalm emoticons for me to use. It is so sad that they aren't confident enough in their product that they have to go and resurrect these "names" to allow their promotion to get some attention.facepalm
.
Also, in thread reminder for the Pick 'Em later on today, Hendricks vs Thompson
.
UFC Hendricks vs Thompson Pick 'Em (Feb 6th)
Oh wait a minute, you wanted us to put the winners in bold??lolfacepalm

The way you do it, is the way I do it, so it's fine. lol
.
My main concern is that it is CLEAR who you want to choose. Bolding the choice, or putting it at the end makes it clear, and also makes it easier for me to read and tally. biggrin
.
Again, the way you are choosing is just fine! :)

Wow Bendo get's an immediate title shot.

http://espn.go.com/mma/story...-bellator-welterweight-title
See to me that is what will kill Bellator. Coker is good but he's a moron. He did the same with SF where he pushed and paid more for UFC fighters than his own grown talent. Pushed them to main card and PPV headliners instead of his own fighters. That's exactly what's happening with Bellator now.

I agree with you 100%, but I don't see what else he could have done with Bendo.
.
Frankly I had to look up who the belt holder was for Bellator, that's how bad his name recognition is. If you don't give Bendo a title shot right away, you risk losing the fans his name pulls, especially right away from the UFC. What happens if Bendo has to fight a few other guys before a title shot....and loses? You lose a part of the Bendo draw and that's not good for business.
.
But, again, I totally agree with you....I just don't see what else Coker could have done to capitalize the most on Bendo's name. think
Johnson/Bader scores are up and the Hendricks/Thompson Pick 'Em as well!
Let's see how good we are at picking MMA fights!
.
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:


.
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:


.
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 Hendricks vs Thompson! (The hyperlinked (i) is a link to the fighter's Wikipedia page...unless I couldn't find one then it is a link to their UFC fighter page. Just in case you want some more info on the fighters before making your picks. :))
