Hey!

What's up with not getting double points for the Ellenburger vs Pile fight? That was the Hot Event for UFC 108 and now there is no indication of that.

Did you guys miss that?

The hot bout switched from Ellenberger/Pyle to Oliveriera/Grunderson in the final few hours.

The hot bout is determined by the picks from playground members as a whole and not by one particular person. The fight with the closest similarity in votes is always the hot bout.

this^^^

sometimes a lot of people get their picks in late and it can change the hot bout.

54.76 chose Oliveira, 55.00 chose Ellenberger, therefore the Oliveira fight was the Hot Bout as it was a closer margin by the thousands of Playground members picking the event.

Thanks for the info - didn't know that at all. So basically, labelling a fight "Hot event" doesn't really mean much, It should say "Current Hot Event"

I think that should be made a bit more obvious (or maybe it is and I missed it).
