Why are we not allowed to poll who really won on saturday?
 
Who really won out of Machida and Rampage is the biggest question in MMA right now.

My poll was up for 12 hours, had around 100 votes and got deleted.

Its qualitively different data than both the discussion of the fight and the pre fight (closed) poll as to who would win.

Even my post saying what the poll results were got deleted.

Why is this.

One or more of the members/mods probably thought it was not needed. Nothing personal but the pre/post fight thread is for that reason

it dont cover the ground and deleting the whole poll when over 100 ppl voted in it seemed a bit short sighted.

thats all.

Did he/she delete the whole thread or merge it? I understand what you are saying just trying to ease the tension

The whole thread/poll got deleted? I wonder why.

The thread was probably just merged into the main fight discussion thread. The poll kinda gets lost once that happens.

The official fight thread is for discussion before, during, and after the fight, so that s probably why it was merged. Members can post in there who they thought won or didn't win the fight. :thumbsup:

its your website not ours. i get that.

i just wanted to find out what people thought, not cause an argument.

i had suspicions that the gen public thought rampage won and the media had portrayed it differently.

i still think its a shame its impossible to poll it as its by far the biggest question in MMA this week, but like i said its your website. i get that.

thanks for replying.

It's not my website or the Mods' website. It is our website. I was a regular member before becoming part of the staff as well.

The only reason it was merged was for organizational purposes. You can still fully debate who you think one in the official Pre/Post discussion thread.

This is everyone's site and we are just here to try and make everyone's experience enjoyable. :thumbsup:

Is this guy trying to pick a fight? Hit never said anything about you not being able to discuss who won. It clearly says in the pre/post fight thread ALL discussion about the fight will be directed there. Now if you just wanted your voice herd there are other ways of going about it

Cause it's obvious that Machida did!
