Sorry, only dream . We can only wager on the most current event. That is Dream.Also, without a 24 hour period in between cards, the wagers for dream will not be valid There needs to be at least 24 hours in between cards in the 2ndary league for us to give people time to update the wagers.. Without that the points are still relevant, but the few people who actually do make time for WEC wagers will be wasting their time. Sorry. but we feel this is the fairest way for all.

Thanks for letting us know and for deciding fairly. I can't complain about having too much mma for the system to work, although this situation might be a valid point in an argument about promoting either WEC or DREAM to the main league.

It definitely would have been much worse for everyone if they found out by accident... so props to you for seeing the problem before it happened.

WEC should move to Saturday or Friday night.

Agreed, maybe its time for one to be moved to the main league

I would love to see the WEC get added to the primary league, or even Affliction if it lasts. It seems like those two organizations get more people playing than Sengoku, Dream, or Strikeforce.

Now that the WEC is into their 40th show, I think it's high-time to move them into the primary league.

thanks for the info/heads up.

and I would be down for WEC in the primary. with Torres and Urijah becoming stars..they have been getting a lot of exposure..and are on 40 events..without many last minute changes or drama.

Sorry to say that we are having trouble filling out the secondary league with enough decent card as it is. So both leagues will stay as they are for now guys.

I think WEC should stay in the secondary league. We dont get WEC in the UK. So idefo think the Primary league should just be the UFC for now.

Is it possible for the next time this happens to open up the betting for both simultaneously? Make it one big wager event.

Why did the WEC 40 card lock so fast. There are still like 6 hours before it goes on.

More like 3-4. Remember the card actually will start sometime in the 6 PM hour with the prelims.
