I think that this game was made to play, if you dont know very much about a fighter just do a little research. If you pick the cards out in full your bound to lose, but thats the way it was intended to be played. Cherry pickers usually end up in jail, dont be a cherry picker.

Well , obviously not everybody has their imagination very much developed, but check this out. Some can have a record 16 : 8 and be the icon of the MMA :))) Some people just do not get the math I guess. :))

They have a scroll bar next to the fighter's pictures which lists the winner options, the round options, and the fight result options. You should be able to just click on it, it'll scroll down and then you choose an option.



Thats the scroll bars for you to use to pick your winner..

(Yes, that's who I picked for that event.)

Are you comparing Randy Couture's fight record with cherry pickers?

Yeah, I pick EVERY FIGHT on EVERY card and I'm 29-5 this season and ranked #386. Not the best by far, but I'll take it when there's over #9000 players. All the cherry pickers are doing is exposing themselves as people who don't know anything about MMA. I can't stand it when people look at my picks for an upcoming event and pretty much steal all of my picks and details for the outcome..GRR!

You have to pick the whole card to have street cred.

How are they looking at your picks? You can't view a persons picks until after the event, so unless you're posting them somewhere, this shouldn't be a concern.

I usually pick 1 fight per event and wager everything I have on it. It's worked out for me

Tonight I have about 6k on Shogun, he's a steal at -280.

Yea I got my money "stolen" on that fight too... horrible payout odds even if shogun would have won, but like you I thought it was a lock.

i kinda dont like to play the secondary league. mainly because i dont care for k-1 heros and i dont like to pick IFL. strikeforce is cool so is elite xc, but it gets difficult because theres so many fights. but i pick every fight for the main league.
