    - A Title below your name letting everyone know you're the "MMA Pick 'Ems World Champion".

    Timeline:

    Fight Card Exceptions:

    - Some Fight Pass exclusive or TUF events might not be counted. Or the main card might be only counted. Or the main event might be only counted. *Vote is usually in either the past event's thread or a new thread.* **Usually only occurs during multi-event weekends.**

    Congrats to @ATJ-Lucko for winning Season 1!!! After winning 5 out of 9 events, it wasn't really a surprise.



    Season 2 start in 3 weeks, plenty of time for MMASADA (MMASpot Anti-Doping Agency) to pay ATJ-Lucko a visit and get his test results back.

    Well now that you mention it. I'm pretty sure my personal scoring was done incorrectly, and I was 32 points off in fact (or however many extra points throws off suspicion of me rigging this shit last minute.) *cough* *cough* Brutal cough this time of year, I tell ya. I'm sure it has nothing to do with my body subconsciously trying to expel any lies that I just wrote. *cough*

    Shit, I guess it doesn't work when I just tied for the lowest score in the last event. Whatever... I still got the last half of '16 to remember :(

    No guff, I haven't gone this long without hitting on a substantial parlay in years either.

    But still, I called that 'Zeke choke again, which should just like, automatically win me the season lol.
