    You should have a points system for the power rankings where if people choose what round and by what the stoppage is gonna be by, they get points. I think it'll make it more interesting...

    I do something like that in the smackdown forum, and it works great, but I'm not totally sure how to approach it for this one. I kinda like the record stuff, because it's very MMA, but a point system would be far more accurate.

    Like award 5 points to every correct winner and 5 points for every correct way the fight stops.

    ionno, tell me what you all think. I'll start doing the real thing for UFC 93 and just a short thing for Sengoku.

    Yeah, I think it makes more sense to have yearly or maybe even quarterly ranks. It's still in trial and error mode, but we're all watching the events anyway so we might as well pick em.

    I think you should do it like hockey point system. For every prediction you get right, you get 2 points. For every correct stoppage prediction you get right (round and via) you should get one point. Just my opinion, but I think it would make it a lot more interesting...

    i could be wrong, but i think every event i had predictions for and that counted in the scores i came in 1st place. never 2nd place for any single event. am i right?

    To make it even more interesting.... The points we get for the correct predictions, we should be able to bet the points off with other people if two people disagree on predictions. Gamble 'em off...

    Maybe main events can be like the last ball on the rack in the NBA 3 point shooting contest and count as an extra point? I dunno... Just try to make it interesting....

    Making wagers on fights with points? Cool idea, especially since this past month we had quite a few debates on who would win. I like it as long as I can keep up with all of the wagers. Seperate thread or something.

    Points will vary depending on the fight. Most likely title fights will be worth more, but who knows, maybe in the future I could even look at the betting odds and people that pick heavy underdogs get more points. I could be a bookie but with points instead of money.

    ^^^ That would be sick... I was thinkin' that too but I wasn't gonna ask of that of you cuz that's too much work.

    You should talk to RM's owners to throw in a Tapout Tee-shirt or somethin' at the end of it because this is gonna probably bring more views to the site... haha... That would be dope...

    Yeah, the too much work part is why I said maybe in the future. Shouldn't be too bad though once I get all the kinks worked out. I'm actually really liking the possibilities of this betting idea.

    I might ask jeff if he could throw in a free shirt and cd to quarterly or yearly winners if the thing was successful enough.
