Hey everyone I read DPOT711's post and it got me thinking. Since Tap isn't able to make the semis and the finals open for picks, we could do our own bracket style game. The two formats I could see are a more March Madness style, where you just pick who will win for every fight (quarters, semis, finals) and predict the score (or in this case method and round) for tie breakers. Or similar to Tapology's scoring; make predictions for every fight and have the winner based off of total points.

Bellator 142 is approaching, but a four-man tournament isn't that exciting for this, but could be good to gauge the interest level. I am aiming more for WSOF 25's eight-man tournament on November 20.

What is everyone's thoughts on this? I would be happy to organize it and record everyone's picks, but would like to have a minimum of 12 people playing to make it worthwhile - and competitive.

Sounds interesting.  I wish there were more tournaments.

I never gave it much thought @GreenHornet. If anyone thinks of something feel free to post it.

Put me down for a tentative yes for Bellator and a definite yes for WSOF. I might actually go to the Bellator show and if I do go, I know myself and I'll forget to make my second round picks lol.

@amp112, it would be too hard having everyone do their second round picks that night, so I am having everyone just do the five possible picks before the event.
