Can they add a section for us to predict who gets bonuses for fight of the night/submission of the night / & knockout of the night for all UFC events...so we can have an added dimension to earn points?

I believe there is actually a side game that does this. I'm sure someone who plays it could elaborate.

I like that idea, it could also be used for tie breakers

Meh, I don't know if I'm too keen on the idea. I like trying to predict the bonuses in other threads, but I don't think it should factor in to official Playground scoring or ranking. Picking a fight night bonus winner is not the same as predicting a fight. Less factors go into it in my opinion and I feel they are easier to guess.

Also, I'd just like to reiterate that for my money, the MMA Playground scoring system is the best around. The fantasy wagers game is in a league of it's own. I don't want MMAPG to become Kountermove or some other game. The PG scoring is as complex as it is simple, and that's part of the charm for me.

I would be doing this ^^^

Also as stated earlier, they do seem to always be giving bonuses to the wrong people.

With everything you said here P$. Plus there is a side game that is really fun that Rabi runs. Poor_Franklin has the link.
The side game started 2 events ago at UFC 150. But I'm sure you could still get in it.
PM Rabi. He will probably allow you to get in.

I don't know, sometime it seems pretty random who they end up giving the bonuses to.
