    Official Rules:

    What you win:
    - $1000 for the Sportsbook/Betting for the highest score for each event.
    - $5250 for having the highest overall points for each season.
    - A Title below your name letting everyone know you're the "MMA Pick 'Ems World Champion".

    Timeline:


    - The Challenge is no longer a full year. Instead it restarts every 3 month. January thru March, April thru June, July thru September, and October thru December.

    Scoring:

    - Correct fighter = 1 point
    - Correct fighter and way of winning = 2 points (3 points total)
    - Correct fighter and round = 2 points (3 points total)
    - Correct fighter, way of winning, and round = 5 points
    - Correct fighter and Decision = 3 points
    - FOTN bonus and POTN bonus are now 4 Generic 'OTN bonuses. If any of your 4 picks are awarded POTN or FOTN you get 4 point for each. If a fighter gets POTN and FOTN you get 8 points.

    Fight Card Exceptions:

    - Some Fight Pass, ESPN+ exclusives 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.**

    Editing Picks:

    - Because the forum does not accurately show the edit times of a post, after it has been edited once, any changes or additions to picks must be made in a separate post.

    Copying Picks:

    - If you blatantly copy another person's picks, your picks will not be counted, and you will be barred from making picks for the next 2 events. Repeat offenders will be barred from the rest of the season, or from participating permanently.

    I say that no one has the title until the end of this season. If @ATJ-Lucko or I win, we get double the cash prize. Any objections or better ideas?
