What a non competitive card to start with, everyone's picks should be very similar, oh well.

Alex and my picks where the favorites across the board, I'll bet we are not the last ones to go this way, so I propose a tiebreaker - Pick your most likely to upset fighter. We will just edit that into our previous post.
Now I see that Alex picked Martin, but the tiebreaker proposal still stands. If you don't pick one, no chance of an extra point.
This is a work in progress, anyone have any format suggestions, **** OFF!!!!
Some people around here, I'm not naming names , are known to frequently edit their posts, don't try it after the bell, I'll catch you by saving this page before the event goes off.

Cote - sub
Jackson - KO
Filipovic - KO
Halverson - KO
Silva - KO
Don't know much about Halverson or Huerta. I'll pick Halv to be different.
How about we pick each of the televised fights as TKO/KO, sub, or decision (TKO, KO, submission due to strikes and ref stoppage are all the same thing)?

What do you think, one point for the winner and another point for the method? instead of the least likely to upset?
One for either, or have to get both for one point?
I like the latter, winner and method for a point on the scheduled televised, winner only needed on the not,no upset pick.
We need to finalize this format by tommorow night, or else people will get PO'd by rule changes.

Duh, dumb me.
It's just occured to me that I won't be watching this live, I won't probably see it until late Sunday.
I'm willing to do this, but not until after I watch it, Sunday or Monday, or else we can use this thread to hash out the rules, then I'll delete it and someone else can be the judge by putting up their own thread.

Alright, the proposal is two points for all fights, 1 point for the method on the scheduled televised.
Who agrees, who disagrees?
Me to do the results on Monday, or someone else to run this thing?

Cool. So the official system is:
*Pick all fights on card
*2 points per correct pick
*Pick way of victory(KO, Sub, Dec)for all scheduled televised bouts
*1 point per correct way of victory pick
*Picks are due by 9PM EST Saturday
A couple more things to clear up. The losers must rep the winner. How exactly will that be done? Anyone have any ideas for a tiebreaker? Maybe pick what time you think the Main Event bout will end. So for UFC 67 It would be Silva/Lutter, and I'd hypothetically go with 3:20 into the first round?

It's good to be the King, I'll grant you a stay of execution.
Do we really need a tiebreaker?, if we have multiple winners, reps from all to them.
This is getting too complicated.

Does it matter if we put KO or TKO? I've noticed that some clear KO's go down in the books as TKOs, and some TKO's go down as KO's.
02-01-2007, 07:51 PM
Judge's discretion, if I like you, either pick covers both, if not, too bad.
KO or TKO are, for the sake of this, the same.

With all the KOs and subs being predicted here, this will be one of the most action filled UFC card ever. I guess we are all hopeful.
- Hazelett via Decision
- Griffin via KO
- Rivera via KO
- Hoger via Decision
- Cote via Submission
- Jackson via KO
- CroCop via KO
- Huerta via Decision
- Lutter via Submission

I'm been asked by a few people to not let you participate in this contest, because of some of the posts you've made and because you are a company rep.
We'll see if we can work this out for next time.
Better sit this one out, sorry.

Sherdog has a video interview with Sanchez on their front page, his
"special" gamplan and "heavy" hands have him sort of predicting a 2nd round KO on the "suspect" chin of Cro Cop.
Me thinks that "La Raza" Ed's going to get a nasty bite of the K-1 and OWGP Apple.
