They always lock 2 hours before start time which would've been a half hour ago. Did they lock before then or something?

Why would they lock 2 hrs before start time? 15 mins before should be plenty of time to click a button and lock the event.

It's not like you had all week or half the day today to get them locked in. They always lock a bit early on this site.

I'm just guessing, as I'm not a mod or have anything to do with running the site, but a programmer sets the lock time, no mods just hop on and lock it and I remember years back where a lock time was about 15 minutes from start time and the event started early and some people took the opportunity to change their picks on the first few fights so 2 hours prevents cheating. Thats my best guess man, sorry you couldn't switch, but sometimes last minute switches are killers

Sorry...next time we'll make an exception just for you. Unless you want to start another thread to bash the mods, in which case, there will be no next time.

I believe it was locked when I got up and on here. Which was like 12-12:30 Central time.

I'm pretty sure it's really because the UFC has been starting events quite a bit earlier so the 2 hour lock time seems like it's locking earlier when it's the UFC starting the fights earlier because I've noticed it too.

Just a good idea to keep in mind 2 hours before the UFC has the first prelim scheduled.

Yeah, having a month or two to make your picks simply is not enough time. C'mon Mods! WTF mate?
