They announced Villante-Safarov as the first fight of the Main Card therefore Trevor Smith - Andrew Sanchez as a prelim should be ineligible for the "Hot Bout" as it is currently shown.

Changed "Hot Bout" to another prelim of Gigliotti that was even lower on the card? Who is running this event? Rule is "Hot Bout" must be a MAIN CARD fight.

Furthermore, if remember correctly, "Hot Bout" is supposed to be locked at 48 hours out. Seriously, whatever unpaid "MOD" is running this event needs to man up, admit your mistake, and fix it. Some of the 500 of us left still care about this game & website.

I whole heartedly agree with you but only because I picked Gigliotti


Also so dissapointed Corey Anderson changed his nickname. ' Beastin 25/8 ' was so bad that it was good ! Now he's just 'Overtime'

Mods have no control over what the hotbout is.

It's locked automatically.

I just checked, and Gigliotti v Meerschart isn't listed as being part of the main card on the admin side of things so I have no idea how the site selected it as the hot bout.

I'll ask DotheMMAth and see what the issue is.

I just looked at the numbers, "Hot Bout" as closely % picked on site of MAIN CARD between both is clearly hands down Choi-Swanson. Link

You know what Lewis really needs to try if he wants to win this fight.

Another Headkick.

Probably the worst fight of the night.

Completely disagree with Mirgliotta giving Abdurahkimov a warning for not engaging..he was consistently landing takedowns and avoiding danger.

Derrick Lewis " that was some bullshit "

Hot Bout being main card only was changed over 3 years ago & now you're just gonna make up new rules as you go...just as long as they benefit you & your camp. The opener of a Fight Pass which is a combo to a PPV is ridiculous to have ever been confused as main cadd "Hot Bout" eligible. The only other main card fight even close to % of Choi-Swanson was Kennedy-Gastelem and don't try & bs like this can't be fixed.

Everyone voted & agreed MAIN CARD ONLY, here's the quote from DoTheMMAth on 10/13/2016


Posted by DoTheMMAth

Thanks for all the feedback. If the voting keeps going this way it looks like we won't be changing it.

Because it was already done, I copied the job that sets the hot bouts from the dev server as that version stops updating which fight is the hot bout at 48 hours away from lockout. So in

summary:
- hot bout for UFC cards now limited to main card fights
- most likely not changing main card UFC fight point values
- hot bout now locked in place 48 hours before

Can't be perfect. There's always going to be errors now and then.

The hot bout got stuck on that prelim because the casual league wasn't up until less than 48 hrs to lock time, that's why Swanson/Choi never got noticed. If the casual league was up, then the site would have recognized the main card and Swanson/Choi would have been recognized as the closest fight on the main card. Without the Casual League up, the site just recognizes what the closest fight on the entire card is and that was Gigliotti v Meerschart.

If you picked Gigliotti I understand your frustration, but this is a minor error that I haven't seen occur before and there's no real money or anything on the line so I don't really think it's a big deal if it's a one and done error. Just need to make sure the Casual League is up ahead of time and everything will be all good.

It's not like this is the first mistake by the new MODs. Not that long ago event #10 of the main league (Evans-Teixeira) was scrapped after the numbers were ran & erased from all history of this site.

It's not about getting the pick wrong, it's the principle of this game getting even more tainted. IMO the "Hot Bout" needs to just go ahead & be scrapped from the game altogether. The place UFC is at nowadays with so many events the only thing fair is for every fight to just be scored the same.

Furthermore, I've heard about entire camps picking 1 way then all changing just to scew with the "Hot Bout" and the betting odds; which btw why is it so hard for someone to just go to BestFightOdds and manually punch in the real betting lines at least as they open?
