Yes, every weekend contest has a random, pointless theme! It will be selected by the prior contest's winner if they so choose. This weekend's reigning champion WishIsHere decides to remind us all that once upon a time, Wanderlei and Coleman starred in perhaps the most epic MMA commercial of all time.




WE'VE GOT 12 EVENTS LINED UP THIS WEEKEND. Get all those picks in!!! Make 'em carefully and make 'em count.  Look out for the prediction deadlines in the right column of the website.


PA Cage Fight 10 is Friday from Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania




LFC 51 is Friday from Indianapolis, Indiana




Ring of Combat 39 is Friday from Atlantic City, New Jersey




XFC 16 is Friday from Knoxville, Tennessee



Legend FC 7 is Saturday from Macau




One FC 2 is Saturday from Jakarta, Indonesia




Cage Warriors Fight Night 3 is Saturday from Beirut, Lebanon




HFC 10 is Saturday from Valparaiso, Indiana




NEF Fight Night 1 is Saturday from Lewiston, Maine




Spartan FC 12 is Saturday from Morehead, Kentucky




BFL 13 is Saturday from Vernon, British Columbia



Aggression MMA 9 is Saturday from Edmonton, Alberta




Scoring:
Contest scoring uses regular Tapology scoring. You get 50 points for every fight you pick correctly, and extra points if you perfectly call the fight via decision or the method+round combination.  To score high and have a chance at winning the contest you'll need to pick as many of the fights as possible. Tapology is filled with fight-picking savages, so you'll need to bring your A-game.

How to enter:
Just pick the fights and you'll be automatically entered. No need to do anything else.

GOOD LUCK!

I'm in the top 40, and I didn't make a few picks because of work and having a shitty laptop. I will be getting a new laptop next week, if my finances permit it. Still, I did pretty good. My pick percentage is getting better all the time, or maybe I should say................my guess percentage. LOL

As long as the Fight Night results don't change I finished with 5500 for the weekend.  Pretty happy with that!

I just calculated my points for the weekend, I believe I was @ 5,300?  There are so many events this weekend!  I only watched the ones on HDNET and I SUCKED on that card!

If I'm counting right and there's no changes to the last two unofficial events then I finished with 5475. btw I also only watched XFC and most of my picks on the main card got beaten and beaten bad.
