Everyone please note the one and only new rule for this year.

Nicknames: Posts should be made using the actual name of the fighter. Please avoid using nicknames of fighters to ensure there is no confusion for your pick. (NEW) Abbreviated names, shorthand, or initials will not be accepted.

Vert you can do me this one solid, buddy, to make my data entry easier.

Just fyi as well I'll be putting a copy of the most recent update and current fight card in the OP if people don't want to search through the thread.

And since this was a pretty short registration period I'm also going to leave a late registration open for January. Anyone who joins in after this weekend's card won't be penalized for a missed event but will be starting from scratch, thereafter.

huh?

He's referring to the infamous Finish_Him who used to wait until after weigh ins in the prediction tournaments to make picks. Totally acceptable in the league but it's a huge quiff move in the tournaments.

I’ll do my best but I always end up missing 2 events. Thanks for stepping up @Decompoze.  If I miss an event can @-idyb- flip the coin and make my picks?

 

Putting Greasy at the bottom makes Greasy a Sad Panda.

i was thinking about putting my name in the hat for my shot at redemption, except for the fact that from march until at least the end of the summer theres gonna be an event like every god damn weekend  and its gonna be too much for me to keep up with it all. and most of the events are gonna be a cabbage festival that im probably not too interested in anyways so i might have to pass.

and by the way im rooting for juice this year.  he's like the dark horse in this division.  last year he may have been the fire hydrant, but this year he will be the dog. so long as he doesnt take any pointers from vert.

ahh **** it what the hell. put me in.  im gonna try something different after everybody else let me down last year

i used a list randomizer. whoevers name comes up ahead of their opponents is the guy who i'm picking.  i couldnt find a truly better randomizer that would pick winners of pairs all at once, so i had to go with this.  i definately dont think i'll be going all the way with this method,  but i have more faith in a random generator than i do in vert's top 10 university level of insight and guidance.

UHRKv0o.jpg

so here we go. without even looking at the odds or anybody elses picks heres who im going with. i have more trust in a computer than i do in any of you guys when it comes to making accurate predictions.

Donald Cerrone
TJ Dillashaw
Gregor Gillespie
Ariane Lipski
Cory Sandhagen
Te Edwards
Vincius Moreira
Greg Hardy
Glover Texeira
Chance Rencountre
Joseph Benevidez
Geoff Neal
Paige VanZant

I saw your wall of text post before you edited it. Don't worry dog, I won't be wrapping that belt around your waist with this strat.

I hope you keep up with it though just to see what kind of record you come out with. Maybe you'll end up selling it as idyb's hot take betting system when it's all said and done.

next time ill just post the image with the losers names crossed off, instead of putting the winners down again and making the post extra long

i'm literally just gonna play the RNG simulator all year long.

im seriously going to go with this all year. i was well prepared to sit this one out, but i thought it would be an interesting experiment to determine how many people end up getting outsmarted by a random number generator that knows absolutely NOTHING about MMA.

so i guess i have to stick to it. means i cant be copying anyone else this year, or making my own picks if i want this thing to be legit.  so its not really idyb who is playing,  it's RNG

i at least expect it to do better than vert and that other 50% guy.  even though it doesnt differentiate between fight records, opponents, title defenses, height and weight and reach advantage,  prior opponents, skin color,   steroid infractions, etc.  it simply just picks a number

so ask yourself this my fellow forum felchers.   Are You Smarter Than A List Randomizer?   I'm sitting this year out, but fortunately for you all, the machine doesnt take weeks off.

Just type the names out of your picks and leave the image out. I'll take your word for it you randomized lol.

nope, sorry. i dont want anybody questioning the integrity or authenticy of my newfangled list generator.  we dont want to get the impression that random is not random, but moreso biased in favour of idyb playing favorites and changing out picks or anything.

  i will be spitting out screenshots. remember,  these picks arent coming from me. theyre coming from a computer.  so we have to at least try to honor that a little. the computer has feelings too you know? dont you try to shut it down by saying it cant play ball like that

or if you really insist ill just insert a plain text link to the imgur image at the bottom.      or if you're down for a livestream lol.

Fine, you can post all the screenshots you want but you will have to type out the picks as well (like you did above - I'd recommend in a second post so you can freely edit the image post). I copy and paste the text picks into my spreadsheet.
