Strikeforce Pick 'em: HW Grand Prix Finale

This is a signup thread for the next Strikeforce event which takes place in twelve days at 8:00 PM EDT or 1 AM GMT. The main event is a HW Grand Prix finale between Josh Barnett and Daniel Cormier from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA, USA.

Anybody who likes Strikeforce can sign up, even if they have not played so far. Details on how to pick are below, same format used for UFC events in CPL. Except for one thing... you send a pick for every fight on the main card, but only for two of the fights on the preliminary card. If Machida Karate signs up he'll be defending this belt:

The scheduled fights include:

MAIN CARD (Pick All)

Josh Barnett vs. Daniel Cormier
Gilbert Melendez vs. Josh Thomson
Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante vs. Mike Kyle
Naj-Shon Burrell vs. Chris Spang


Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante vs. Isaac Vallie-Flagg
Virgil Zwicker vs. Guto Inocente
Derrick Mehmen vs. Gian Villante
Quinn Mulhern vs. Yuri Villefort
Bobby Green vs. James Terry
You can send picks whenever confident with the fights. The picks should only be pm'd once unless they add, drop or change a fight on the main card. The offcial card can be seen HERE. If someone signs up and fails to send their picks, they lose their matchup and won't be cleared to fight at the next event. The deadline to send picks is when the Strikeforce event begins, approx. 8:00 PM EST in the US.

On how to pick fights:

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.
Main Event

hixxy (9-2) vs Bknmax (7-4)

Main Card

pipe (6-4) vs kantowrestler (4-6)
dudeabides (7-4) vs Couchwarrior (5-6)
Ruckus (3-4) vs Big_Charm (3-5)
