I usually enjoy making my bets/picks etc on this website. So far I have visited the page 3 times to select winners etc and lost interest due to the sheer weight of mediocrity to choose from.

This is one of the hardest cars to pick I can remember. So I completely disagree.

I have to agree with everyone else. I think theres only one fight that should be a for sure ( Gonzaga/Tuscherer ). Otherwise these are very close. Nog/Randy, Duffee/Hague, Maia/Marquardt hell even the Leben fight may be very close. I wouldnt doubt it if I just go .500 on this one.

Bored? Hardly. Trying to make informed picks made me realize how close these matchups are. I've second-guessed myself so many times, I probably won't remember who I actually picked, come Saturday.

This is definitely the toughest card in a while. I had a rough time with 101 but that was NOTHING compared to this one.

At first I thought this was an easy card. After a week and really breaking it down, I've found myself going back and forth on numerous fights. I'm more frustrated than bored

For anyone having trouble choosing a winner, just follow my easy to use strategy.

Assign one fighter to be "heads" and one fighter to be "tails"

Flip a coin.

Then disregard the coinflip and just pick the winner.

Never fails.

This is a card that we could see three of the best fights of the the year. Crazy sub's, fight of the year and highlight KO's, all on one card. I think its crazy not to be excited about these fights even though its not a true superfight card.

i dont think ive ever been bored with picking for an event. You dont find mediocrity in the UFC, they are all respectable fighters whom i would pick against almost every other fighter out there. Plus for once im confident in my picks haha

This card was one of the hardest for me to make picks for.
