I'll be in the saddle for this one tonight. Refreshed myself on the PFL rule set. I like it. Solid first two events of the season, and this one looks pretty great as well. 

Looks like we'll get prelims on FB around 530pm ET before main card action at 9pm on NBC Sports.

Let's do this!

I’m ready myself!!No elbows takes some getting used to, but it’s ok if it keeps the matches going without the tourney having a bunch of fill-ins come playoff fights...

I'm still not really sold on the whole points gimmick thing, but the card does look solid.

Actually unless the user has his/her picks "hidden" you can see them at anytime. But yea pretty cool right? 

That fight wasn't very good and really nobody won. Interviewing Lobato? Why?

lol the glasses are really just another way to watch the fight but you're right..it also helps commissions see what refs see.

So I'm guessing Tapology will change the result  to a Rex Harris  win?
