Post tips here and ill keep a tab on all of them.

You should have to pick the outcome of the main event (knockout, submission, points) for a bonus point. That would be pretty fun!

Im def in for this!

EDIT:

Just seen the 2 points bit lol... fail.

Nice work Goo. I like the idea of tipping the main card, it's what I had in mind as well. I dislike the idea of tipping method of victory in the main event. Too much grey area. How did Anderson Silva stop Belfort? Front kick most would say, but he got a few punches in before the ref stopped it IIRC.

Also, what happens if fighters pullout, and they re-arrange it with another guy on the card? Shouldn't be too much of a problem, I just wouldn't be tipping too early though.

You don't have to predict "stoppage by left handed spinning back fist". Just t/ko, sub or decision.

I thought that after i put my tips in, l should have waited till the weigh ins incase someone comes in looking like shit but meh, cant win em all and at least Rumble should make weight at middleweight.

Just to clarify....there are only 3 options for choosing method of victory.....

TKO / KO
Submission
Decision

Correct?

If a bloke taps from strikes this should be classed as submission I guess.

Correct,

That would be a submission but it rarely happens. Forrest has done it twice and l can't remember many others... Oh and Shogun vs Jones but the Ref stopped it anyway.

Also outside of the UFC it is a lot more common. I've seen it a lot in pride, strike force etc
