On how to pick fights:
The matchups will be posted next week.
Select the correct fighter: 10 points
Select the correct method of win: 5 points
Method includes Submission, KO/TKO and Decision.
Select the correct round of win: 3 points
If you select the fight to end by decision then you must choose either unanimous, split or majority instead of a round. If you want to predict a rare outcome such as a DQ or a draw you may do that as well. For the DQ, include the name of the winning fighter and the round it occurred, and for a draw include the type of draw the decision was (unanimous, split or majority).
In addition you can earn bonus points for EACH fight by putting the fights in order from your most confident pick to your least confident when you PM them. If there are 10 fights on the card then your most confident pick could earn you an extra 10 points if you get it correct.
