I'm too new to know any of these guys so I'm picking at random. In only watched 77 on spike's website a few days ago but I think having names picked will make this more fun.

Nice picking by the winner, OHKO with a record score I am sure. You got some credits coming your way. Hibernaculum and SmackyBear were right up there in 2nd place with one less. I had stinking work tonight and couldn't watch it but it sounds like a great event to go back to. Sorry Blattman let most of you guys down

Should have factored in that Blattman was a late minute replacement.

Seems like more and more people are joining this competition, which is good. I didn't bother to watch Bellator before the Bellator 76 picking contest. Now I try to keep myself updated with the Bellator fight cards and actually watch them. Good idea by dudeabides!

Thanks, I wish more people were into Bellator it's a good show if you can handle more than one MMA company. But you guys that play sure know what is going on and how to pick the winners.
