I was just about to submit one of these, but this headline is much better than mine. We missed the chance for a Legacy thread last night, by the time I realized it was too late to matter. A couple of the fights were good. Hopefully psychicdeath is ok.

And if Overeem loses he's got to be one of the biggest busts in UFC history.  Either way, the loser of that fight is probably getting cut.  Both of them make a lot of money and haven't won much lately.

Just getting around to submitting a thread, but i always check first (especially when I'm this late).  Spent a few days in the hospital, feeling slightly better but far from 100%.  Hopefully the problem is resolved and it's just a matter of getting my strength back. About to try my first solid food since a bit over a week ago.  Clear liquids suck, especially when they come back up an hour later.

I'd go back before they close and make sure they were all picked, then click again to finalize them.  Hopefully that fixes the glitch.  Then wait a few and try to repost.

As far as I know.  Since I signed up for the free Fight Pass trial, I haven't looked for alternate means, but I thought the plan was that early prelims will be fight pass exclusive.

That is weird.  It shows you making all the picks (and what they are) when I click on your picks, but then only shows a few in the graphic here.  Hopefully resubmitting them witl fix it for you.

The picks take time to process especially right before they lock because they get a ton of volume at that time. The image will update when the picks have been fully processed.

Overeem was training in Thailand for this fight. Thailand is the land of milk and honey for steroid users.

Although the obvious steroid use was against Lesnar, not at UFC FN 26, where there is noticable difference:

10-9 Magomedov, but close.  19-19

Mir, on the other hand, is publicly on TRT for this fight.

He's not Vitor, though, so no one cares.
 
2014-02-01 07:25:18 PM  
10-9 Magomedov.  29-28 Magomedov.

10-9 Hester.  Thought he had him early, but Enz recovered and made a round of it.

Did that come from Dana in the last 48 hours? Cruz's manager said a few days ago that nothing was promised and they had no idea what to expect.

I would tend to believe that at least a part of that decision will hinge on how tonight's fight goes, as well as Aldo's potential move to 55.
