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 Catalogger did NOT submit a contest theme, and therefore I've had to dig deep with another of my own. This week we simply need to have a little Japanese flair, and therefore it's time for the aforementioned Kill Bill gang.




WE'VE GOT 16 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.

Cage Warriors 46 is Thursday from Kiev, Ukraine




Showdown Fights - Breakout is Friday from Orem, Utah




CFA 5 is Friday from Miami, Florida




Battlefield Fight League 14 is Friday from Vancouver, British Columbia



Hardrock MMA 44 is Friday from Louisville, Kentucky




Mardi Gras Brawl is Friday from Denver, Colorado



Hard Knocks 20 is Friday from Medicine Hat, Alberta




Legacy FC 10 is Friday from Houston, Texas



On Top 4 is Saturday from Glasgow, Scotland



Fight UK 6 is Saturday from Leicestshire, England




Cage Contender 12 is Saturday from Dublin, Ireland



KSW 18 is Saturday from Plock, Poland



Complete Devastation 3 is Saturday from Altoona, Pennsylvania




Canadian Cage Rage is Saturday from Moncton, New Brunswick



Reality Fighting is Saturday from Unvasville, Connecticut




UFC 144 is Saturday from Saitama, Japan




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!

kill bill vol 2 is in my top 5 favorite movies ever, did you know he plans on making a 3rd one around 10 years after the 2nd movie came out, don't know how badass Uma will still be with her age, but it's supposed to focus around Vernetta Green's daughter and her crusade to kill Beatrix and I think that her daughter is supposed to be the main character, sounds a little iffy but I'm sure if anyone can do it, it's Tarantino.

Yeah there are so many movies from Tarentino that I love so much.  Seriously probably 5 of his movies are in my top 30 favorite of all time (Kill Bill I/II, Pulp Fiction, Hostel, Res. Dogs)

Deceiver is one of his best performances ever, also Chris Penn does one hell of a job as well.
