Hey Skelli, the result is entered wrong in this fight: http://www.tapology.com/fightcenter/bouts/262158-final-fight-championship-24-danillo-indio-villefort-vs-thiago-rela Villefort was the winner. It was on CBSSN with Rico Rodriguez doing color. I'll get you the pbp announcers name and any other relevant info that's missing when I rewatch it tomorrow.

Ok, for FFC 24 the main play by play guy was Rich Keunas or Kimunas, they never actually showed his name so I'm not sure of the spelling, with Rico Rodriguez doing color and Jane Parker-Smith sitting in on a few bouts. Peter Linka was the ring announcer. Didn't catch the referee assignments and didn't recognize them either. And FFC 25 is on CBSSN next Friday as well.

Hey Skelliher, would it be possible to unlock Berkut for me to make picks for BLC? I lost power last night as did over 100k people in my area. :( If it's already started I understand that you can't, but if it hasn't I would greatly appreciate it.

Can I create a new users thread so that more new members can post and get comfortable with being in the forums?

Is there a way to edit the UFC 203 discussion thread so that it looks like the other UFC discussion threads? I kind of ****** it up by forgetting to create it as a part of the UFC 203 forum section.

Hey Skelli, just a heads up, I noticed that Meerschaert's win over Waldon last night at RFA is entered as a triangle, it was actually an arm triangle.

Hi Skelli, just a heads up, in the Bellator 165 card the Keri Melendez-Padilla fight is a straweight fight (115). Melendez weighed in at 116 and Padilla at 115,1 I think being a straweight fight could play factor in picking the fight for the extra 10 pounds that the bigger Melendez has cut. In the same card, the prelim between Cacdac-Gruber is a 132 catchweight. It was announced that way in the weigh in ceremony.

My apologies. I have a list of excuses longer than probably that of any Brazilian. I'll take care of that all tomorrow, by that time all the events should be sorted out too.

Can you please erase the spam that I'm getting on my comment wall on my page? I reported it but nothing happened with it, thanks in advance.
