It was an option to pick but if you try and do that now it's all been removed. You couldn't pick a fight with no winner and the draw option. You can only select Split Decision on here now. Some of us got really hosed because they decided to lump in draws with split decisions. I would've finished 3rd overall with those 22 points.

The decision was made months ago, when the site first went live.
From the FAQ:

" 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.

This rule has come into play 3 times so far. The Gomi/Diaz fight, the Maynard self-KO fight, and the Ortiz/Evans fight.
One counted for points, two did not.

I can understand that being in the rules but why have it as an option as well? Kind of contradicts the rules they've put up. No Contest wasn't a selectable option ever. The menu clearly stated "Split Decision/Draw" this fight ended in a draw. I think at the very worst people who had split decision in there should get the points for just the ending.

A mod (DoTheMMAth) has admitted in another thread that the draw option being included as a selectable option was an error on site admin's part. Apologies were offered, and a logical explanation was given as to why no points were/will be awarded.

The discussion should be over after his post.

yeah unfortunatly some of the mods on this site seem to be jokes like the one with the kermit the frog icon, DoTheMath at least offerd an apology the kermit mod or waht ever he calls himself decided to be a punk about it
