    If you're gonna say that then you should just name and shame because I can't see anybody that has identical picks to anyone else. Plus it's not like there is a lot of choices. There is 2 fighters to choose from and there is usually a favourite in a fight therefore a lot of these picks are gonna be the same. So who is it? and we'll see what they have to say?

    Also is everyone aware that it's zak jensen fighting at bellator and not Santos?

    Yeah Payne has removed that fight now anyway because not a lot of people knew.

    And i'm not going to name and shame them because I can't be bothered with a repeat of the other weeks argument between Payne and SP. I didn't see they had copied the picks identically, I said they had copied/been influenced by other peoples picks, it's quite clear to me that they've made their picks based on other peoples picks, but who knows, it might just be me being pety.

    No probs, i can't really see it happening to be honest. I know personally that I don't even look at the other posters picks until after I pick mine.

    I've just realised that you're top and i'm 2nd so you might have thought I meant you about the copying picks, don't worry mate I wasn't talking about you. Yeah same with me, most of the time I only find out other peoples picks when people are watching the event on the chat box Razz

    Just had a run down to see if anyone had Trumped any of the scrapped fights.

    Pete has Trumped Ivanov
    Efils has Trumped Easton
    Cowboy has forgot Trump
    and even though it's his game,Gin has as well Laughing

    If you don't make the changes needed,I'll randomly choose another Trump for you all(basically ask my kids for numbers between 26 and 40 excluding #28,#30,#36 and #37)


    oh also Mryryz,I added your Wiman Trump to your main picks,just so Gin doesn't miss it when he comes to adding up the scores.

    He's just the one I want to win really.

    I think it's a bit of a coin toss fight really,Struve has a weakness standing with heavy handed strikers,which is exactly what barry is,and Barry is likely to get choked out by anyone with half a submission game,Struve has a solid submission game.

    I'm just hoping that Barry has learned enough from Cole Konrad and the rest of the deathclutch boys,to be able to stuff any attempts Struve makes at getting the fight to the ground,then hopefully he can take him apart standing.

    Struve's takedowns aren't that good really,but if the fight does hit the deck,Barry's in trouble.

    Barry is going to get front kicked in the face, the size and reach advantage is way too much. Struve is much better on the ground and on the feet Struve has huge advantage with reach. If Struve even lets Barry land a punch he needs to give up MMA.

    Me and Sheldan are going to score some easy points tonight Cool

    Surely nobody takes the league THAT seriously though? I would rather finish bottom (normally hovering around there anyway) than to finish near the top with someone elses picks. Doesn't make any sense. Think it's only fair that accusations should be out in the open though.
