Fundamentals as sound as the WNBA


After a needed break we are back! Season 20 of the Goonweight GP! Last season the most revolutionary athlete in sports picking history stunned us all. Dana White swore there would never be a woman in UFC pick 'ems, but LOBSTERMOBSTER proved him wrong.

This season we'll pick fights across TWO CALENDAR YEARS and 7 EVENTS! We'll begin this weekend as the greatest athlete in history faces off with Holly Holm for the strap.


About the Goonweight GP

Welcome to Season 20 of the Goonweight GP! Every week you'll see a new UFC card posted, you'll post your picks, then you'll watch the show and have more fun because some guy you've never heard of can net you an extra point if he can finish this before the end of the second round. You'll have even more fun when the judges rob someone and you get points for that.

A few days before every card, I'll post the fights on the main card with a FORM and a SPREADSHEET. Fill out the form (or post you picks in the thread), and then check the spreadsheet to make sure your picks are in there correctly. When the card is over and I sober up, I'll calculate the results and post standings.

CERTIFIED RULES OF THE GRAND PRIX

  • Picks can be submitted via the Form, or in the thread, though I prefer you do both.
  • Picks must be submitted before the start of the Main Card to be eligible. Picks submitted after that point are considered null and void. Please pay attention to time zones, especially for European cards.
  • Same goes if you edit a post with picks in it after the main card starts.
  • If you wish to change your picks before the main card starts, make a separate post in the thread and I'll update the Form for you.
  • Points for each match are scored as follows
    • 3 points for picking the winner correctly
    • If you picked the correct winner, 1 bonus point for calling the round the fight finished
    • If you picked the correct winner, 1 bonus point for calling the method of finish (KO or Sub or Decision)
    • A fight that end in decision is not considered ending in a round
    • "OTNs" are given out for correctly picking the Fight, and the two Performances of the Night. These award no points, but are used to break a tie at the end of the season
    • On each card you can pick two POTN. If you pick the same person twice, I'll manually delete one.
  • Commission reserves the right to award no points for a fight based on really weird situations
  • Whoever has the highest combined score at the end of the season wins!

Too confusing? Please consult this handy flowchart to determine your score for a fight:


Here is the current season lineup:

SEASON 18

Upcoming Cards
UFC 193: Rousey vs Holm 11/15
UFC Ultimate Fighter Latin America Finale 11/21
UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs Alves 11/28
UFC 194: McGregor vs Aldo 12/12
UFC on Fox: Cerrone vs Dos Anjos 12/19
UFC 195: Condit vs Lawler 1/2
UFC Fight Night: Cruz vs Dillashaw 1/17

That's right, another SEVEN CARD SEASON! A couple of these cards have a two week gap between them so the schedule won't be as awful as last season which seemed to burn everyone out.


UFC 193: Rousey vs Holm

pre:
Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm 		
Joanna Jędrzejczyk vs. Valérie Létourneau
