I am starting a Prediction Fantasy Game on MMAForum! Make a little fun into predictions by adding a prize! I have a store on EBay and use PayPal frequently! For now, the winner gets a irresistible prize is 25$ and 10,000.00 Credits! Well maybe not irresistible, BUT IT'S SOMETHING!

Object of the Game:
Make predictions according to every upcoming event,
achieve the most correct predictions throughout all
the events from UFC105-UFC110, Winner receives 25$!

RULES:
Please when you post your predictions, post that you will
be competing for all the events from UFC105-UFC110, After
110, we will start a new game.. I will edit my post after
each event and update who is in the lead with how many
points.. I will post my predictions underneath the rules.

Each UFC event starts at 9:00PM for the introduction to the
event and continues the fights afterwards. At 9:00, when
the pre-show starts, I will come into the thread and write
down whatever your predictions say at 9:00PM, so every
prediction that you have at 9:00PM will be yours, so make
sure of your choices BEFOREHAND!

WE WILL ONLY BE PREDICTION THE PAY-PER-VIEW CARD! NO PRELIMS!!!

Scoring:
You have to choose the winner, round, and win-type/move.
Winner - 2Points
Round - 1Point
Win-Type - Varies -
--Submission/Submission Move: Submission is 1Point/Submission Move is 1Point
Therefore, you can achieve 2 points by choosing submission.

--Decision: You get 2Points for choosing Decision because you cannot choose what round a decision will end in because, depending on the fight being a title fight or not, the round will end in round 3 or round 5, therefore, if you choose decision, you automatically get the free point for round, making the total points you receive for choosing decision 2Points!

--TKO/KO: You receive 1Point for choosing TKO/KO because you still have to choose the correct round, and you have a possible chance at another point by choosing the correct round the fight will finish in.

WIN BY SUBMISSION/WIN BY SUBMISSION MOVE: 1Point/1Point
If you predict Submission as the "Win-Type",
U can choose how, for an extra point!
You get 1 point for the fight ending in a submission,
Also, you get a point if you choose the correct
submission moved used to win by submission.

Example: UFC105 - Vera vs. Couture
Prediction: Round 2 - Submission by Arm-Bar - Randy Couture
You get 1 point for the round, 1 point for submission,
1 point for the arm-bar, and 1 point for choosing Randy.

----------------------------------------------------------------

WIN BY DECISION: 2Points
If you choose decision, you get 2 points, because you
cannot choose the round, decisions always goto round 3
or 5, therefore, you get 2 points by choosing decision.

Example: UFC105 - Vera vs. Couture
Prediction: Round 5 - Decision - Randy Couture
*Because choosing Decision means you cannot pick a
round, you automatically receive 2points.**You should
remember to write down what round it is, even if you
choose decision *BECAUSE* if it ends as a Submission
a TKO/KO and it ends in the 3rd/5th round, you get the
point for the round.. SO REMEMBER TO CHOOSE THE ROUND!

----------------------------------------------------------------

WIN BY TKO/KO: 1Point
No matter what you choose, win by knockout, win by a
damaged cut - caused doctor's stoppage, win by strikes.
You choose what round, and then just by TKO/KO in that
round.

Example: UFC105 - Vera vs. Couture
Prediction: Round 2 - TKO/KO - Randy Couture
*Because you chose Round2, there is only 1 other way it
could possibly end in Round2, besides Submission.*
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

**THIS IS MORE FOR FUN, DONT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE PRIZE OR
PREDICTION OR ANYTHING! IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, JUST DON'T
COMPETE!**

*When you post, let me know you are competing so I can add you, Whoever leaves predictions, I will add you to the list, if you do not make a prediction the following week, I will take you off the standings list, unless you tell me otherwise and let me know you will compete on the following event.**

Light Heavyweight bout: Randy Couture vs. Brandon Vera
My Prediction: Randy Couture - Round 5 Decision
I'm pretty sure its impossible to have a 5 round decision win in a 3 round fight.

iBrockoli's Picks

Couture - Rd.3 - Decision
Swick - Rd.1 - Submission by Rear-Naked Choke
Bisping - Rd.1 - TKO/KO
Wilks - Rd.3 - Decision
Pearson - Rd.1 - TKO/KO

I think we should have secondary picks, for half-points, because in the Wilks fight, I think Wilks is going to win by Decision OR Browns gunna knock him out in the first round.. It's just a suggestion for future contests!
GO ITAL! REP+1

I'm pretty sure its impossible to have a 5 round decision win in a 3 round fight.
Heh, I was editing a post from the instructions post up-top.. and Clearly I wrote 5rounds because of a mix-up with a title fight.. Don't really gotta tell me my mistake..

As stated above in my instructions post...




WIN BY DECISION: 2Points
If you choose decision, you get 2 points, because you
cannot choose the round, decisions always goto round 3
or 5, therefore, you get 2 points by choosing decision.

Example: UFC105 - Vera vs. Couture
Prediction: Round 5 - Decision - Randy Couture
*Because choosing Decision means you cannot pick a
round, you automatically receive 2points, you can
write down what round the decision ends in, depending
on a title fight or non-title fight, but it doesn't
matter if you do...



So thank you very much for stating such a big mistake that might change the outcome of my picks....heh

I'm just foolin' around mate.. Why don't you make your picks and join my contest!!! Instead of fixin my mistakes:thumb02:

Fair enough.

Randy Couture vs. Brandon Vera
Prediction: Randy Couture - Round 3 Decision

Mike Swick vs. Dan Hardy
Prediction: Dan Hardy - Round 1 TKO/KO (Probably a bad pick. Just have a feeling Swick is due a (T)KO loss because of his crappy stand-up defence)

Michael Bisping vs. Denis Kang
Prediction: Denis Kang - Round 3 Decision

James Wilks vs. Matt Brown
Prediction: Matt Brown - Round 3 Decision

Ross Pearson vs. Aaron Riley
Prediction: Aaron Riley - Round 3 Decision

I like all your picks man besides Dennis Kang and Aaron Riley. Bisping lost to Hendo, But Hendo is a dominant fighter and obviously would dominate Bisping.. On that note, Dennis Kang is nowhere near a good enough fighter to dominant a fighter like "The Count." Also with Aaron Riley, he is not a stand-up type of fighter that is good enough to win his fight, he is stand-up, but not as good Pearson.. If you watched the Ultimate Fighter, you'll know that Pearson is a ******* animal and is going to rip Riley apart...
