I searced but couldnt really find my answer. Are the Bodog, Elite, and other smaller orgs evens going to be up for picks or just Pride and UFC? The more fight the better is my motto.

Right now it looks like picks will only be for UFC/PRIDE but maybe in the future other organizations will be added. I would also love to have picks for smaller orgs.

i agree that the more fights the better, but for a prolonged competition, it's hard to have everyone get their picks in for smaller shows. Pride and the UFC are tops for now.

I love IFL and Bodog, but the logistics of 2-4 more events per month would make particpation dwindle.

Bodog PPVs happen fairly infrequently, I don't see a good reason not to include them. The fights are also available for free on the website, so even people who don't plan on watching the PPV have good information to go on for their predictions.

Cage Rage would also be nice to get in.

Pride is the big one in Asia, UFC is big in North America, Cage Rage is big in Europe. I think considering the next Cage Rage will be shown on free TV in Europe, it's reasonable to include. That means there's about 15 million people who have better exposure to Cage Rage than to UFC.

Elite definitely shouldn't be in there, only people in Western Canada really care about it.

Bodog and Cage Rage should definitely be added though.

Bodog has more exposure than any show out there - anyone with an internet connection can watch it. On this website it's perfectly reasonable to include Bodog because anyone who would play here obviously has access to Bodog, moreso than UFC and Pride. I don't have TV, so I can't legitimately watch UFC or Pride (not that it stops me, but I'm just saying...)

Why not add Bodog and the IFL for now and then WEC when it debuts on Versus? More stuff to pick and bet on means MORE AKSHUN!!!
