So we're just not gonna pick some fights? Atleast put TUF finals on there. This sucks

Same here. I thought it would be like 20-24 fights with all fights up for betting.

I think it's pretty obvious, now that people know fights would be dropped that no one wants them combined.

It's been 5-0 for keep them separate since people found out and keeping them separate is leading the vote.

Yeah hopefully we keep them separate events with only one betting if we have too... then lose 7-8 fights for UFC 147.

If we keep them the same - UFC 147 picks will be locked in before the UFC 147 weigh-ins which makes no sense.

picks separate, wages together

but since are combining them, get rid of 2 of Stone, Alcantara, Arantes, or Keith fights and have both TUF Brazil finals fights on there

It's obvious we can't please everyone, so I just went with the majority. Believe it or not all this stuff does take up my time.I will just make it 18 fights and add the tuf finals. That seems like a fair compromise.I am not going back through all that and adding/deleting the fights/cards again though.

18 is better than 16.
Still doesn't feel right only reason cause
Watching the Ufc 147 prelims won't have any meaning to it now since i have no picks for it. It feels weird

So the majority are saying keep the two events seperate and no wagers for UFC 147 yes?

So that is what is happening yes ?

Just for clarification.

No they added the two cards onto one with top 18 fights dropping 6 off the Ufc 147 card to do picks on
All 6 are prelims though from tuf Brazil

Thanks for that prozac.

My next question is why ?

If the popular consensus said otherwise...........?

I can't say i'm too bothered by this, but it would be nice to know.

When it was changed, the vote was like 20-19 to combine them at the time.

No one knew fights would be removed before the vote.

Since we combined them - it's been unanimous to keep them separate, thus the majority wants to pick all fights.

How does it make sense to be forced to pick UFC 147 fights before the UFC 147 weigh-ins? A weigh-in full of TUF: Brazil fighters and UFC debuts. (i.e: important)

Hopefully we can keep them separate and get to pick all the fights. Merge the betting or remove UFC 147 betting if need be... but please let us pick all the fights in separate events.

I voted before read the thread thinking all the fights would be combined.


However its crazy how a few of us voting influenced a major decision effecting EVERYONE on the site

That's what I was saying, we have like 40 people deciding for 2k users and some of the users don't log in everyday so I'm sure this will effect them as they might miss the picks because of the combining.

I wish no one would have ever brought this up, because it been a disaster.

[Edit] Thanks for the update hippysmacker - best of luck everyone with the mega-event.

This is the worst season ever for picks, everyone is doing terrible it seems. So I think we should combine this and the harder picks on both cards get dropped off.

Ok, kind of tired of being e-mailed about this either way.I have heard a LOT of arguments from too many sides if this thing. I know its a close vote.Right now combining is apparently ahead 29-26.I have been told it has been in favor of either side multiple times.I'm past worrying about it either way. Yes the people posting in this thread seem to be in the separation category. That doesn't mean the people who post more get more sway on the game. This is not about the forums. It's about the game. Most people on this site just play the game r post in there fight camp forums, if it all. Personally I am having a good season so the bigger ,and harder the card is the better it is for me. However it's not about me. Its about the majority of people playing the game. I have tried to compromise on this ,and make as many people happy as I could, but compromise does tend to piss off a lot of people too. So compromise it is. Be pissed ,or happy ,or whatever. Just please stop e-mailing me your opinions, or conspiracy theory's of whatever camp you blame collusion suspicions, and just accept that this is the way it is.

I hope this is only time for Ufc cards this happens.
I am okay about this. I know a lot of people on this site haven't watched tuf Brazil so the fighters they don't know about. But do your homework boys !!!

I kicked ass on secondary league and a lot of those fighters I didn't even know who they are. Look them up.

147 could have been a bad card in points for a majority of us but not me
