Your best picks ever
I was bored clicking through links on the playground when an idea came to me for a thread.
What is your best event ever? Whether secondary league or the UFC/Pride FC league which is your best event? How many points did you score and what rank were you? How much cash flow did you rake in? Also, what do you feel is the best upset pick or hotbout pick you ever made?
My best score- Strikeforce, Four Men Enter, One Man Survives- 67 points and 2nd place overall.
My best wager- EliteXC on CBS Parley wager for $500 to make $6,608
My best upset/hotbout pick ever- Picking Frank Mir by Submission in rd 1 against Brock Lesnar. People were buying into the Lesnar hype so much the boards around here were ridiculous. It was probably one of the happiest moments of my life (no joke, actually) seeing Frank Mir tap out Brock Lesnar by leg submission in rd 1 just like I had told a million people would happen. It's tooting my own horn, sure, but I was smiling like I ate a whole bag of shit for the next week straight.

DREAM 3 -> 80 Points, got second in that event
Never been great in wagers, always avarage a bankroll of around 4k (all three seasons)...so i always go up gradually, never actually hit a big parlay, highest i've made at one time was like 3k.
Best upset picks-> Irvin over Alexander
$79,211 is what I got at UFC 86 where I placed 3rd and ended the season ranked 7th and winning a free shirt was nice vary vary nice
Best Picks for point was Cage Rage 25-69 points
<------------Look over here and you can see
Best Score- Dream 1. i got 93 points and went 8-0. i came in first (obviously) and had every single fight perfect (including the hot bout) except for 1 in which i only got 5.
Best Wager- UFC 84 $660 parlay on Carwin, Kim, Palhares and Thiago for $4,586.
Best Upset/Hot Bout pick- i'll go with Mir/Lesnar as well. got 22 points off of it. i wasn't really concerned about the outcome since i was fairly confident but it felt really good to shut everyone up.
Oh, and i called Aoki winning his last fight by gogo...just not a mounted gogo lol
Best income was at ufc 84, ill will. I got like 10,000 off a 500 parlay on Carwin, Palhares, silva and yoshida.
Highest finish was 262 on the ultimate fighter 6 finale. Funnily enough my second highest finish was the ultimate fighter 7 finale. I think i must be a tuf noob after all.
Highest points was ufc 84 with 75.
UFC 75: 67 pts and ranked #47
My wagers are terrible
The greatest pick / bet ever was picking Rampage to beat Chuck again at UFC 71, most of the idiots watching with me were all confident to the point of arrogant that Chuck would win and they denied that Rampage beat him until I showed them the video, I laughed and made 100$ from 3 people, some of the easiest money I've ever made next to the Sylvia / Nog fight or poker.
Ultimate Fight night 7, went 9-1 and scored 70 points. Very very tough. So many and you have to scroll through time to give an honest productive answer. Some that come to mind, Randy over Sylvia, Congo over Cro Cop, Machida over Soko, great idea for subject. Spot on. True.

both helped me into the top 10 for season 3

My most dramatic wager had to be putting my last $90 on Jardine vs. Liddell.
most money off one wager was putting a grand on Thiago Silva vs. Houston Alexander... +275 for Thiago was ridiculous
best pick was probably Aoki in his rematch with JZ... got the underdog bonus on that.

Crazy, I did not notice that the two most recent events have been my best for both picks and wagers for the primary league!
Picking Jardine to beat Liddell or Rivera and Cote to beat Grove
Or the whole cards of UFC 65, 72, 77, 80, 82 and 84
I assume Pride picks dont count anymore so I wont go there.
