Having watched the video, it's clear that this was rigged - and who can blame our competitors for wanting to knock one of the two mightiest predictors the game has ever seen out in the first round.

 

Let battle commence.

1. Using a nickname that the UFC site doesn't even recognize

2. Making a pick with an edit stamp

3. Claiming my video was rigged 

 

I've learned my corruption from the finest :)

 

Nice progress boys. Knew I'd have nothing to worry about here.

I'm going to wait until the weigh-ins to make my final pick....oh wait, i'm a hetrosexual.

 

I'll take Bearjew (Paul Craig for those who haven't recently had to look up who the fook is that guy on Sherdog)

 

Last pick to you mate.  Good luck, shame this wasn't the final, pleasure as ever doing business with you.

Unfortunately for him, my boy Bubba is torched in the tiebreaker match. So he needs seven, and I only need five other fights. 
   
For once in my life, I have the advantage in this match. lol

Yeah, first pick is not always an advantage, never know why people have made such a big deal of it, especially when there's a load of close fights.

 

But yeah, Bektic is not losing....neither is Lando so I guess that would have been your first pick and TB if i'd gone Bektic.

Completely agree. And the odd card that gets busted down to 10 fights really gives the advantage to second pick (if he's competent).

 

The choice of first pick/tiebreaker was a great way to do things last tourney, but that was granted as a reward for round robin. This tourney is pretty short so it's best left as is I suppose, where it's somewhat balanced.

 

I think for the most part people are cool with the tiebreaker fight but one alternative could be this:

 

The poster who has the first wrong pick in their order of confidence. An example below where bold are correct picks.

 

Poster A - Pick 1, Pick 2, Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5, Pick 6

Poster B - Pick 1, Pick 2, Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5, Pick 6

 

Winner - Poster A for getting their third pick correct where Poster B got their third pick wrong.

 

Anyway, just a thought.

I have no complaints.  Plus there are some scenarios where first pick is a big advantage - if there is only 1, or 3 really one-sided fights then it's a massive advantage.  The whole first pick thing is also somewhat enshrined in prediction tournament history.

 

That new format you mention is almost a cross between the prediction tournament and survivor series....interesting!

I agree! I have no complaints as well. I saw for a while they made the tiebreaker fight as the main event which was interesting too.

Lol. I assume you won anyway but we both got our first picks wrong, which is kinda embarrassing!
