I know that. They dodnt give the weigh in results, but now the fighters don´t cut so they would be one weight class up. Here (http://www.onefc.com/about-one/weight-classes.html) they have their new weight classes.I think that with One, Tap. should keep the weighclass name, but put the new upper limit in pounds,since they are fighting the same guys that they would be fighting anyway but without cutting. For instance, Askren is gonna defend his welterweight title against another 170er, but they will be fighting at their "natural weight" and they would weigh in at 83,9kg(185). So put the weight, 185 in this example, but keep the weightclass name,welterweight. Then, I don´t know how that affects the rankings. If the Tap. system is flexible It would be great. Anyway, thank you for your response.

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
