    Welcome to the new 2012 season of the Armbar prediction league.
    Hope you all had a great year.

    Well done to Sheldan for winning the league and cup last season.

    2011 Winners
    League Cup Saucer
    Season 1 Winner = Redmeanie77. Runner up = payneNglory1 Winner = 2brutal. Runner up = superman_punch Winner payneNglory1. Runner up = efils_god
    Season 2 Winner = superman_punch. Runner up = payneNglory1 Winner = Sheldan. Runner up = superman_punch Winner = payneNglory1. Runner up = manschesthair_utd
    Season 3 Winner = Sheldan. Runner up = payneNglory1 Winner = Sheldan. Runner up = efils_god Winner = 2brutal. Runner up = p4pnumber_1


    I hope to see all the regulars playing again and it would be cool to see some of the former players return[I promise no drunken rants and stupid pettiness about cheating Wink ]
    Also all new players are more than welcome to join in the fun.

    To register for this competition,simply enter your picks for Round 1.

    Rules


    The rules will stay exactly the same,the only change this season,will be the length of the seasons,instead of trying to make each season close to 150 fights,I'll be breaking them down into months.

    Season 1 - Jan/April
    Season 2 - May/August
    season 3 - Sept/December

    Also at some stage,Sheldan will start the Armbar cup,you don't have to do anything differant for this,just keep posting your predictions and you will be randomly matched up with another player for the cup,unless of coarse you want to call another player out,then that match up can be made,no problem.

    Also to add abit of fun,feel free to challenge people to Avatar or User name bets

    We will have a winner at the end of each season,also your points for each season will be kept and an end of the year winner will be announced,Ginginho,they guy responsible for starting this,will keep scores and post updates.

    Any questions feel free to ask Gin or myself.

    OK lets get started.

    This round will be covering UFC 142,UFC on FX and UFC on Fox,Evans vs Davis and I'll be allowing two Trumps,only one Trump per event.

    Don't forget your Trump picks and remember you can't Trump main event fights,they will be in Red writing,good luck everyone.

    Was it Superman_Punch that won the second season? I could be wrong though.

    No problems,the full rules are above.

    basically,copy and paste the predictions above,then next to them,post the name of your chosen winner,the rd you think it'll happen in and the method(sub or stoppage),(all KO's,TKO,ref stoppages etc come under the stoppage category)you think he'll finish the fight.
    If you think it'll be a decision,forget the method,just pick what type of decision you think it'll be,UD,SD,MD or even a draw)

    examples

    Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes - Aldo UD
    Vitor Belfort vs. Anthony Johnson - Vitor 2nd rd stoppage
    Mike Massenzio vs. Rousimar Palhares - Palhares 1st rd sub

    Cheers for that payne, look forward to seeing if I can be competitive this season! Ive changed that to the 2nd round.

    I also Changed Bardoza from SD to UD because I dont think you get extra points for calling a SD as far as I remember and Its in Brazil so reckon the judges will favor him in a close fight.
