    Johnson weighed in at 197 pounds, he can't weigh more than 205 pounds by tomorrow otherwise the fight is off. Hope he loses and gets cut, hate the guy.

    No reason given, but his camp have said that everything was going to plan before he flew to Brazil. So up for debate if somehow drastic happened in Brazil, or if he is just a disgraceful joke who should be cut. I'm definitely going for the latter. I'm 90% sure Rumble will just decide to weigh more than 205 pounds tomorrow so the fight is off, hopefully he gets cut if thats the case, I would much rather see Vitor kill him inside a round and then he gets cut though.

    Cool good work guys. Happy with my start.

    What's the deal with 2 trumps? Just for this round because it's massive? Or generally from now on?

    Just because it's such a big round.
    You can't use two trumps at one event though.

    Payne sorry for asking stupid questions but by reading the rules is this right... for Decisions you dont write UD or SD you just write Decision unless you want to pick MD or Draw?

    How many events per round? Just wondering about the Trump thing. Is it a Trump per Event.

    Cheers mate. Apologies if im asking something brought up before.

    No problems mate,You have to say what type of decision.

    If you had predicted say Tavares S/D,but he won by U/D.

    You'd have scored 10 points for the correct winner,5 points for the correct round[it went to a decision] but 0 points for the correct method of victory.giving you 15/20 points.

    If you predict M/D or draw,because they are so rare in the sport,instead of getting a max of 20 points,10 points winner,5 points for the correct round and 5 points for the correct method,you'll basically get 35 points for the method,giving you a total of 50 points for that correct prediction.

    There will be 3 seasons per year[Jan/April - June/Aug - Oct/Dec],so depending on how many worth while events happen during those months,will depend on how many rounds each season consists of.

    Usually there is only about one or two events per round,where you'll only have one Trump to use on any of the fights from either card[not including the red main event fights]but because this was a big round covering more than 3 events,I decided to let you have 2 Trumps this round,but you can't use more than one Trump at one event.

    If there are a couple of events at the beginning of a month,with a week or so gap before the next events,I'll seperate them and do them as seperate rounds,where you'll only have one Trump to use,but if there is say 3 or more events within say 3 consecutive weeks,I'll more than likely call that a big round and offer 2 trumps.

    I think this way is better than having short notice between events to get your picks in.


    We have four events this round 142,FX,Pro-Elite and Fox 2.
    You can't Trump your boy Minowa at the Pro-elite fight because that's a main event fight in Red,so you had the chioce of 2 out of the 3 events to use your trumps on.
    If you haven't used a Trump on the 142 card,you need to Trump a non main event fight from the FX and Fox card.

    Abit long winded,but I hope I answered you alright.

    If anyone has anymore questions or queries though,feel free to ask.
