Strikeforce Pick 'em: Overeem vs Werdum
 
This is a signup thread for the next Strikeforce event which takes place in two weeks, Saturday Jun. 18th at 8:00 PM EST. The main event is the HW GP fight between Alistair Overeem and Fabricio Werdum from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX, 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. Send a pick for every fight on the main card, and for two of the fights on the preliminary card.

The scheduled fights include:

Quote:


MAIN CARD (Showtime)

* Alistair Overeem vs. Fabricio Werdum (heavyweight grand-prix opening round)
* Josh Barnett vs. Brett Rogers (heavyweight grand-prix opening round)
* Daniel Cormier vs. Jeff Monson
* Chad Griggs vs. Valentijn Overeem
* Jorge Masvidal vs. K.J. Noons

PRELIMINARY CARD (HDNet)

* Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante vs. Justin Wilcox
* Magno Almeida vs. Conor Heun
* Nah-Shon Burrell vs. Joe Ray
* Mike Bronzoulis vs. Todd Moore
* Brian Melancon vs. Isaac Vallie-Flagg

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:

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.

Thanks man, you can call out anybody else who signs up besides the 4 people that already have matchups. And good luck against the Ruckus/Tyson winner at the Fedor vs Hendo show.

Too late for me to join the GP?

dudeabides 06-07-2011 01:42 AM

Yeah, the sign up thread for the GP was up for a whole month, and unless somebody pulls out that is all until the next one. You can sign up for the event though and take on somebody else who signs up in a normal matchup.
