There is some unrecorded bouts for Lithuanian fighter Mindaugas Verzbickas that I have found recently. One against against Dmitri Capmari when Verzbickas which was at King of Kings 2014 GP in Chisinau, Moldova on December 15, 2014; in which Verzbickas won by Guillotine Choke in Round 3 (which was an overtime round). The other was a bout between Verzbickas and Alik Tseiko at another King of Kings event, this time it was held in Tallin, Estonia on October 17, 2015; which resulted in a majority draw after a three round fight between the two. Here are links to the video of both fights for visual proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNlaprT3d2A - Tseiko vs Verzbickas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9z6nylKqVo - Capmari vs Verzbickas Here's links to info on the fight cards in question as well: http://www.fightsport.pl/newsy/7106-king-of-kings-world-gp-2014-in-chisinau-dennis-wosik-vs-stanislav-renita-pelna-karta-walk http://www.fightbox.com/en/news/item/9107-king-of-kings-live-october-17th-tallinn

Ah! no, that makes total sense. I apologize. My reasoning was 2 google hits on the subject led back to here, and while I am not an "active" discussion member, i DO love the site more than you know. I use it all the time for picks and fighter info. (I love the data and the lack of jouno-rumor-garbage stuff.) There's certainly no profit motivation, nor any intention to take traffic away from here, my project serves a different need. But I completely understand your stance, and were it my site, I'd probably feel the same. Actually quite rude of me. Again, I apologize. Thank you for the explanation.

Hey Skelli. Sorry to be a bother, but I was trying to pick Brace 40. It said the deadline was 2:00 EST before. But when I went to enter my picks just now, it had notified me that the event deadline had passed. Is there a reason for this?

Ah, my bad. I should have been more on top of my picks this weekend anyway. It's what I get for cutting it this close.

Can you tell WastelandWanderer to leave me alone? The guy is spamming my wall to death with insane nonsense that I "purposely downvote his posts", despite the fact I barely notice him at all when I go on the forums. It is becoming annoying and I think he is doing this on purpose because, according to talks I have had with other members about this such as Curt and Gunn, he used to do the same **** to Gunn's wall back in the day when he went under the alias of ElementDefeat. It is pissing me off and I am done with having to set this ****** straight all the time.

Definatly , 1 a day if even , I know there's more important matters that need focus , I noticed on the last 2 Fight pass events the commentators ( Robin Black , forget the other one ) referred to guys rankings via 'sherdog' and 'tapology'.... pat yourselves on the back !! Your business is on the up and up I think

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.
