The undercard doesn't start for another four hours (7:45 est). Could we have it unlocked for last-minute changes?

The greatest mind to ever select a MMA fight on the playground needs more time?

No. It always locks several hours in advance.

Just out of curiosity, why does it lock so early? Wouldn't an hour (or even two hours) before prelims suffice?

Have to defer to the higher-ups on that one, but we're not the only ones. UFC locks their fantasy game several hours before the event begins (usually 3-4 hours).

The UFC usually cuts their picks off at exactly start time...at 7 for today's event. Of coarse I wouldn't expect that to happen here, but having a little more breathing room would always be a bonus.

ufc.com's game doesn't lock out for another 2 hours, 15 minutes.

I don't think an event held in the US has ever been locked out over four hours before the undercard. It's happened with Japanese events.

Here's your more detailed answer...sorry, but it's still no:

As always if you have a question. Just ask me. i will tell you all what i told our favorite vigilante.Sorry but the system is locked for good ( once locked now) since the one time i unlocked it some people took advantage of it. The programmer put safeguards in after that. 4-6hours before is also standard for us .These cards are always up weeks (and with the UFC months) in advance. We all have plenty of time to make our picks. Also, everyone needs to click fight companion after you make your selections or any time they make changes. That way they can make sure they actually made the picks they think. Drop down menus can cause mistakes if your not vigilant. I always click fight companion , even if I am just looking at my picks. About every other card someone e-mails me to to tell me they swear they made a different pick on something. This never has happened with folks who always check their fight companion. The programmers ran some sort diagnostic sweep and ( I really have no idea what they are talking about when they speak computer) and checked the code. There is NO GLITCH. It is just simple human error. So please always click your fight companion anytime you even look at your picks.
