    ALL PICKS MUST BE SUBMITTED BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF THE FIRST FIGHT ON FIGHT NIGHT. ONCE THE FIGHTS HAVE BEGUN WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT ANY ENTRIES.
    PLEASE, ONCE PICKS ARE MADE, NO EDITING OR CHANGING OF THE PICKS

    Just a reminder about the new scoring:

    Picks must include fighter, ending method and round. 6 points for picking the fighter correctly 2 each for round and method.

    Designate ONE (1) fight with a *** and if correct you will receive an additional 2 points.

    Pick a winner , round and method for the ALTERNATE BOUT.......this will only be used in case of a late or last minute change to the main card in which a fight has been removed or altered.

    Good luck

    Watched the main card this morning....my thoughts:

    Shevchenko is a fricken beast, very strong, well rounded champion. My only "complaint" would be at times she lacks volume and tends to sit back just a little too much, that has cost her in the past, but kudos to her, she's a beast and should be 125 champion for a long time. JJ did fairly decent but was just overwhelmed early by the strength an power....I don't see her ever beating bullet though so a return to 115 may be in her best interest.

    Holloway and Ortega....man what a scrap. Max is da man for sure, dominated the first 2 rounds, lost the 3rd IMO and got wobbled a little just to come back and have one of the most dominant rounds in MMA history in the 4th. Hats off to Ortega, the man is tough as nails and has the heart of a lion, no quit in that kid, but Holloway is on a different level to him and the whole division.....a rematch with the paper champ would be nice because I see a very different outcome as the 1st fight, but I don't think Conor ever makes 145 again.
    Great fight and FOTY worthy for sure.

    Nelson/Oliveira.......I'll say I had Nelson winning this fight going into it and changed my mind quickly after the 1st round. I didn't think there was any way Gunnar was going to win that fight after 5 minutes, but tenacity and a couple well placed elbows changed that fight on a dime. I'm not sure I've seen anyone leak that much blood at once as Oliveira did. Nice job and good win for a perennial 7-15 ranked Gunnar....he's good, just won't hit the top I'm afraid.

    Santos vs. Manuwa was pretty much what everyone expected, just a tad bit longer lol. One of those old fashioned rock 'em sock 'em fun FUN fights.

    If those scores are accurate, Blue will have moved to within 2 points of the lead in the season with 3 events to go
