This is a fantastic question.

According to the rules, you only get points for the fight if you pick the correct winner. In a draw situation, it is impossible to pick the winner. Therefore, why is there a split decision/draw option available?

This didn't affect me, but I'm still curious as to why the "split decision/draw" option includes "draw", when it is impossible to score any points that way.

They should just give 11 points to everybody who picked Tito/Rashad by split decision/draw. Mabye some people actually thought it was gonig to be a draw.

I think it was just a typo or mistake nobody caught until now but it would only be fair if they gave anybody who picked Tito/Rashad by split decision/draw the 11 points.

lets be honest here guys... NONE of you chose Draw, you all chose split decision. Still, I hear you, your point is valid.... But lets not run around saying you called it! You guys got lucky!

To all of you saying you picked Draw; Did you all leave the 'Winner' option blank?
If you picked a winner, then you didn't pick Draw, you picked Split Dec.

Nobody who picked a winner in this fight should get points. The correct way to pick a draw would be to leave the winner choice option blank, take judges and then split/draw. You choose a winner you do not get points for a draw.

i wish a mod or something would explain what the deal is, it appears that they are just acting like the fight never happened, it isnt even listed in picks history

It's pretty clear cut in the rules that draws arn't counted at all. Here is what it says.

"How are fights that end in draws or no contest handled? "

"Draw and no contest fights are just simply not calculated into the points, ranking, or earnings. The result and scoring from a fight that is overturned at a later date (steroids, etc) will remain on the website. "
