Bellator 50 Pick 'em



Anyone who likes picking fights may sign up for this event. The only people who are already signed up were the ones who advanced in the tournament at last week's show. But we can have as many non-tourney matches as we have participants. The Bellator event takes place on September 17th, and that is when your picks will be due by the time the fights start at 5 PM Eastern time. The winner of the tourney get this belt, made by limba like the tourney brackets:


How to Pick

We are picking every fight from the main card of Bellator 49, and whichever 2 prelim fights you choose, and send them to me in a private message:

Quote:
MAIN CARD (Pick All of these)

* Bryan Baker vs. Jared Hess
* Zelg Galesic vs. Alexander Shlemenko
* Sam Alvey vs. Vitor Vianna
* Victor O'Donnell vs. Brian Rogers

PRELIMINARY CARD (Pick 2 of these)

* Rad Martinez vs. Brian Van Hoven
* Ailton Barbosa vs. Ryan Keenan
* John Kelly vs. Cristiano Souza
* Shah Bobonis vs. Marcos da Matta
* Valdir Araujo vs. Brett Cooper
* Marcelo Goncalves vs. Dietter Navarro
* JP Reese vs. Martin Brown

Quote:
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.
If anyone has any questions, post them here or send me a pm. The rest of the matchups will be posted before the event.

They are sorta hyping one of their prelim fighters at this show, hard to tell which one will let you know when I find out!

According to Bellator's own official website, Brett Cooper is facing Valdir Araujo. So that preliminary card got a boost. I checked out last weekend's stream and enjoyed it thoroughly after the first couple of fights. So I'm going to tune it beginning at that point this weekend. It looks like there are six fights with legitimate fighters involved on the 150 prelims, beginning at Da Matta-Babonis.

As far as the main card, I'm really looking forward to it. You should know every fighter but maybe Rogers if you watch Bellator regularly and look at prospect lists. If you haven't heard of Shlemenko, Baker, Hess, and Galesic then you really must not watch much Bellator or other major orgs outside of Zuffa. Vianna is the most likely to provide a test to Lombard, but I'll be rooting for the hometown kid Smilin' Sam. The 185-pound class is respectable, and just got a boost from the signing of Bruno Santos, but I think it really makes a jump after an imminent move to Spike, which will allow them to seize the established veterans like Marquardt and Khalidov.
