Bellator 44 Pick 'em

Saturday night May 14th, from Caesar's in Atlantic City, NJ, Bellator FC 44 takes place at 6:30 PM EDT for the preliminary and following 1 1/2 hours later the main card. If you want to compete against everybody else that signs up, just send me a pm to keep your picks on the downlow. Include who wins each listed fight (either fighter or a draw) and how they manage it (KO/Tko, Submission, Decision or DQ) by the time they start on Saturday night.



Whoever gets the most winners right on (picking both the right guy and the right method) will receive 500,000 credits. If there is a tie, they all get that same prize. If someone gets every fight right on, the prize is doubled to an even million.

Quote:
* Hector Lombard vs. Falaniko Vitale
* Michael Chandler vs. Patricky "Pitbull" Freire
* Brett Cooper vs. Alexander Shlemenko
* Bryan Goldsby vs. Anthony Morrison

PRELIMINARY CARD

* Giedrius Karavackas vs. Sam Oropeza

I'm down for my first pick'em.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

Thanks for playing everybody, the Hector Lombard show brought a record (so far) pick 'em crowd:

The Results

Right on: attention, SmackyBear

Jamall Johnson vs. Randy Smith

Right on: ...

Gemiyale Adkins vs. Jay Silva
Silva wins by decision

Right on: attention, Toroian

3 out of 7: attention, SmackyBear, Toroian
2 out of 7: St.Paul Guy, UFC_OWNS, Bknmax
1 out of 7: kantowrestler, dudeabides, limba

Bellator only lost one fight tonight! Goldsby vs Morrison scratched after weigh in troubles. But after adding up the totals... here we go! The winners tonight are in a 3 way tie between attention, SmackyBear & Toroian with 3/7 right on. Several people got one or the other (fighter/method) right but not both. Those three all win 500000 credits each for doing what they did. Nobody got the million by getting all of them right on by winning fighter and the method. The easiest fight to pick was obviously Lombard by KO/TKO, almost everybody saw that coming even if it took a few rounds. The hardest fight to pick was Johnson's amazing submission comeback. We might stop picking methods at a future event if Bellator keeps having this many fights that we knew about in advance, if you look at previous events you will see that their usual number is only 4 or 5. See you guys next week if you want to go at it again for the season finale!

Sweet. Thanks for the credits.

I didn't really get the appeal of a pick'em until I completely picked a card and found myself refreshing the play by play of a Bellator undercard... I may need to start doing more of these.

Congrats, nobody outdid you even if your first one. :thumbup: I only got both picks right for the easy main event myself. You can feel free to play more Bellator pick 'ems they won't all be as hard as this one, the DREAM pick 'em in Japanese MMA will be even easier. Those are just pick the card contests for credits though, if you want it real tough join Strikeforce's pick 'em league or you could go paid and join the league for UFC.

Well I hope next week takes Bellator into the summer with a bang. After this we won't see any Bellator for a month. Not until the summer series.
