I got 7 points because I chose a 1st round TKO and it was called a 1st round sub on here, but the UFC called it a 1st round TKO for Cantwell. Sherdog said it was a technical submission. Just wondering if anybody else found this interesting...

It was a TKO. The guy didn't tap and the ref stopped the fight due to injury. That's a TKO.

I hope they change it to the correct result.

Thanks. Also here's the North Carolina rules:

On a related note, I could have swore I entered Cantwell to win but the results show I picked Al-Hassan? Has this happened to anyone else or did I just enter my pick incorrectly?

I thought this happened to me once on a secondary league fight, but who knows - I could have just messed it up.

A couple times I've noticed an outcome was different than I thought I had picked- like it said I picked tko instead of decision or something. This is the first time the actual fighter was different than I had intended...

Either I'm totally blind or there was some kind of glitch.

Ah well, at least I didn't drop out of the top 100 even with the mixup.

LOL - Cantwell just got submission of the night for his TKO win.

Frankly, the people who picked 1st round submission deserve the points more then people who picked 1st round TKO. We should be making predictions about what techniques a fighter will use to finish his opponent, not whether a guy is going to tap or make the ref stop it. It was a submission hold that won Cantwell the fight.

Even though I'd lose 2 points if it were done this way.

This has been argued about ad nauseum - as you might imagine. You can search for the thread but I think it was Svartorm that put the debate to rest by saying that there's logical arguments for both rulings, and it happens so infrequently that it's not worth changing the MMPG policy on it.

I've been on the other end of the spectrum a few times due to guys tapping out to strikes...so it's nice to have it go the other way for once .

After I read about the fight I immediatly went to Timmay's fight finder to see what the ruling was on his arm break against Mir. It's listed as a "Technical Submission". So naturally I was a little bummed since I picked TKO. All smiles over here now.

It has since been changed to a Technical Submission (Armbar)

It is NOT a TKO Link

I think Sherdog just has there own way of scoring things, as this is how Sherdog originally scored the bout a "technical submission". It really comes down to how the fight was scored at the event though, which was a TKO, and this is how the UFC scored the bout as well.

Sherdog fight finder is not the final arbiter of anything, is often wrong, and incomplete. The athletic commissions make the decisions , and the UFC reports them. We go by the way UFC reports their own results. Period.

This is what they have under results

Steve Cantwell Wins by Technical Knock Out at 4:04 in the 1st round .
