    Hello everyone, the original creator of these threads ( @f1ght3rz ) has been missing for a while, so I'll just copy-paste his words from the 2022 thread. Hopefully, we can get this thread pinned too.

    Rules are pretty easy to understand.

    we've got a weekly schedule of fights (all fights of every ufc event) and YOU have to pick the outcome.

    what do i mean by OUTCOME? well...i give you an example:

    Francis Ngannou vs. Jon Jones is the hypothetical fight.

    You have to pick the WINNER AND METHOD which means the name of the fighter you predict to win the fighter and the method you think he wins by.
    KO = Knockout / Technical Knockout
    UD = Unanimous Decision
    SD = Split Decision
    MD = Majority Decision
    SUB = Submission / Technical Submission

    You could also pick a draw if you want to but that's pretty rare in MMA as we know and usually needs either a point deduction at some point or some big rounds scored 10-8 by the judges so it's a bigger risk to do that obviously.

    If a fight ends in a No Contest due to some eye pokes or whatever, the fight will be scratched and doesn't count for the league.

    Another important rule is: You can make your picks or change your picks until the first horn. So if you miss a fight or two you can still make picks for the rest of the card. You don't have to pick all the fights, you can pick the fights you want to predict but i guess if you really want to compete for the W you need to pick all the fights.

    Please DO NOT EDIT your postings if you want to change your picks. Just make a new post with the changed pick and post something like "changing from XXX to XXX".

    That's all....

    If you want to get a feeling what to expect just take a look at the 2023 league which you can find here:

    Do you guys want the prediction league to last the whole year or just 3 months or 6 months ?

    I think 3 months might not be long enough but I'm ok with either 6 months or the full year. Previously we have always done the full year.

    I'd say the full year is better.
