This is a signup thread for the next Strikeforce event which takes place in three weeks, Saturday Jul. 30th at 7:30 PM EDT. The main event is a HW battle between Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson from the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, IL, 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.
The scheduled fights include:
* Dan Henderson vs. Fedor Emelianenko
* Marloes Coenen vs. Miesha Tate
* Tim Kennedy vs. Robbie Lawler
* Paul Daley vs. Tyron Woodley
* Tarec Saffiedine vs. Scott Smith
* Gesias Cavalcante vs. Bobby Green
* Eduardo Pamplona vs. Tyler Stinson
* Alexis Davis vs. Julie Kedzie
* Derek Brunson vs. Lumumba Sayers
* Bryan Humes vs. Gabriel Salinas-Jones
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. 7:30 PM EDT 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.
