For some dum reason I thought 4-10 in the secondary league got a T-shirt

But I guess its just for the top guys 1st in each class....

I know I'm not in the top ten but I had big plans to finish strong in the money...

My question is will this ever change??? How long will the secondary be considered to be BETA???

as long as secondary is in the name lol

the reason is there is less of a competition field, it is optional and was solely designed to get smaller orgs and fighters more recognition. it only came about after the forums started to demand it.

but hey, i agree with the point about the shirts. i'm 4th in points and was previously 1st. i'll just take the badge should i be lucky enough to finish in the top 10 at the end of the season.

The funny thing is...the only "Secondary" promotion that I watch is the WEC...and I'm ranked #99, which to me, is pretty damn good.

I watch the UFC religiously and suck mad ass at making picks. Go figure.

I think it's becuase the fights are more predictable (I'm a master of the obvious)

I'm with you though, sometimes I watch the IFL, but I don't go out of my way. Dream 1 had a decent card but don't know if they can keep it up.

That could be...BUT...it'd be one thing if I knew most of the fighters. And I don't. I know of very few of them.

I usually make my picks based on a few things...

- Overall record
- Previous Opponents (and outcomes, obviously)
- What promotion the fighter fought in.
- # of wins by Sub/TKO/KO/Decision
- Gut feeling and/or coin flip.

well in secondary league MMAth tends to work actually. in the UFC this is not the case. it is also more objective. you don't have any biases towards any fighters for the most part and you can make more logical statistical picks. this is my opinion anyway

The secondary league prizes go like this:
Top Score/Earner in event: Badge
Top Score/Earner overall at end of season: Badge and $250
Top Score/earner overall at end of season, 2nd-10th place: Badge (like my badge)

It's good to know others have come to the same conclusions about how to pick lesser known fighters. I'm doing exactly what you're doing.

I pretty much do the same, although I've done less research since the feature was added that brings up the fighters' records when you highlight their links while making picks. Not sure if that's a bad thing, I really like that new feature.

I'm guilty of not researching as much now. Though it seems to have worked out in my favor so far...

Same here, at least in the last 2 events. My scores haven't been ranked this high since my very first event here.
