Simply make your picks that you consider "locks" to win or lose. The one who gets the most points will win an event. Method of victory is also added on to make more points available. There's an underdog bonus, which will be any fighter with a pick percentage of 20% or less going into a fight and a heavy favorite is the opposite, with an 80% pick rate or higher. 

You will also lose points for incorrect locks. Pick as many fights on the card you want. We'll go for 10 UFC events, winner at the end of 10 events with the most points win's the first MMA Locks Game. Let's get at least 10+ people to play as well and I'll make a separate thread when we start. Let's shoot for the next UFC event at UFC 220 in 10 days or the next one if we don't get enough people. Let me know if you're in, down below.

Here's the scoring structure...


Event Win: +5 points
Last Place: -5 points

Regular Lock to Win: +4 Points
Regular Lock to Lose: +4 Points
Regular Lock to Win (loss): -2 points
Regular Lock to Lose (loss): -2 points

Heavy Underdog Lock to Win: +10 Points

Heavy Favorite Lock to Lose (loss): -5 points

Heavy Favorite Lock to Win: +2 Points
Heavy Underdog Lock to Lose: +2 points
Heavy Underdog Lock to Lose (loss): -1 point
