    Ya know, I was on the fence how this whole league and points format would actually work, but after a few weeks, I'll say it's actually kind coool.. Different for sure, but the way the points are dished out, I think it kinda gives the fighters more incentive to put on AMAZING shows, which is extremely fan friendly... Sooo id even say that it's successful... Atleast from what I've seen
