!NEW GAME! ANYONE CAN JOIN! Congratulations to Detroit Superstar for outlasting 21 others to win Tapology Survivor Game #35! 

IMPORTANT: I'm making a tiny bit of a rule change for this game. Each round, we will pick two or three fights as fall-back options. Only the first fight will count towards advancing onto the game. The other fights are simply buffers in case of a fight cancellation, be it an injury, a bad weight cut, a day-of illness, getting trapped in an elevator, crossing over to boxing, etc. I will clarify a bit further down.

To kick off Game #36, Detroit Superstar has elected to go with: Stefan Struve vs. Alexander Volkov. 
***Please also pick Francimar Barroso vs. Aleksander Rakic and Siyar Bahadurzada vs. Rob Wilkinson. So, to clarify, we will go down the order of those fights in case anything goes awry with the main event. So, if Struve hits his head on a door and can't fight, Barroso vs. Rakic becomes the fight, and I don't have to scramble to get your picks.

Without further ado...


vs.

@Cheese, please send in your other two picks in case the main event falls through. I guess as long as you get them in at some point if necessary, that's fine.

Note to all: As long as there's advanced notice on the back-up fights, there's no exceptions to not getting a pick in, even if a fight takes over at the last minute.
