Yo ya people, just wonder what is the very best predictions percentage here. 


I got :
  • Picks: 203 127  61.5%
  • So are there any with more than 300 picks and above 70%?

Yes, there are plenty. Here are the people with the highest percentage with a minimum of 300 picks:

I imagine many of these people carefully choose which specific fights they want to pick.   If you pick every UFC fight including the prelims, it would be extraordinary to achieve 70% over the long term.

I honestly didn't think my pick %% was that great, untila few guys broke it down for me. I was comparing my % to the top % ... But apparently some ppl ONLY pick fights that they'll know they'll win. And once you start picking entire cards, of more than just Bellator or UFC, boxing included.... It's extremely hard to hover around 70%
