Umm thats my whole point... Its not a pure guessing game because u can at least see how they perform, making shit like the under card stupid and 100% luck, we already voted on this because its obviously stupid to just guess most of your fights off there score, and no Video coverage

That is why like I've said we only vote on the undercard guys we know about. We do that and we aren't just guessing. If we do it that way we know who we are voting for!

I like that idea, but to choose sometimes the under card sometimes not because some will be unknown some wont, i guess like you said we can give the ultimate decision to Dude on what under card fights that will count, but idk i see problems in the future with that lol.

I think its not such a bad idea because it will only be a couple under card guys and it will give higher chances of people not choosing the same things.

But for people to choose ALL the same rounds, have them all in the same order, and pick the same winners/how they will win, are pretty high odds.

Mainly i just dont want more undercard picks then main card, and its just pure luck who wins, one or two wouldn't be TO BAD

Well like I said we pick whichever undercard fights we would like to vote on. We nominate which fights we would like and dude determines what fights we actually vote on. Good system I think!

I hear you guys on both sides of the prelim picking situation. Main card not enough, yet some prelim fighters are unknown. I wouldn't want it to be up to me which to choose if only some were picked. I'd want everybody to pick their own 3 or so undercard fights if we compromised on it. At the next card where Hendo fights Feijao, the prelims are featuring Jorge Gurgel & Roger Bowling just from what they've announced so far. Just something to think about between shows I guess.

Well we could try the pick four fights option. Another option is that in the next card we experiment with this and just go with the Jorge Gurgel & Roger Bowling prelim. Personally I would go with the later cause it's just what I'm talking about!

How about each user can pick the winners of any of the undercard fights..
Not round or method, just winner.. For each one they get right they get 5 points to add to their main card score.. BUT for each one they get wrong, they lose five points from their main card score.. That way it is down to each user if they want to take the risk..
