If you're never tried this league before this is a good time to start.

This is a good opportunity to get to see and pick fights with future UFC fighters and former UFC fighters. In addition to some of the other Top Non-UFC organizations such as Bellator, Rizin, LFA, WSOF, Titan FC, One Championship, Absolute Championship Berkut, Cage Warriors, BAMMA, Pancrase, the list goes on and on.

This first week is stacked. Here's the names and times of the Promotions on this combo card.

Bellator 177 (Friday, April 14 - 4pm ET)
Victory FC 56 (Friday, April 14 - 6pm ET)
Road FC 38 (Saturday, April 15 - 3am ET)
ACB 57 (Saturday, April 15 - 10am ET)
RIZIN 2017 in Yokohama: Sakura (Sunday, April 16 - 12am ET

Just click on the link below or Click on Best of The Rest in The Pick'em Leagues section.

And the beauty of this league is it has no effect on camp rankings for the Primary league.

In addition to what was said a very good % of these fights are very easy to watch live. For example this week. Bellator will be on Spike TV, Victory FC is on Fight Pass, ACB always has an easy to find Youtube steam, and generally speaking there are Rizin streams out there.

I really wanted to get off to a good start.. Fucking sucks that the site was down for an hour and a half before, until about 5 mins after the picks had officially closed... Pretty stupid timing that was.

That was a boatload of work that you put in too JLS :/ If anyone should be pissed, it should be you. What happened? It obviously wasn't your fault, but what was the reasoning of the site to shit itself like that. Urg. What a great card to start on too. Almost like old Pride days. So does it start next week now?

You dont get the cred that you deserve for L2. It really fucking sucks that this happened.

Could not get any picks made today, site just would not load.



The event will indeed be scrapped.

The site was loading so slow that it was not what I would consider functional to the members. It was caused by some undesirable traffic hitting the server, but the programmer was able to nip it in the bud. Unfortunately, functionality was restored too late for folks to get their picks in.



Unfortunately it's just one of those things that were out of our control. Terrible timing for sure

It's a real shame too because like you said Stone, it was a great card to start the season off. Rizin cards are a ton of fun and every fight was viewable. VFC is on fight pass tonight, Bellator on Spike, ACB and Road FC always have Youtube streams and Rizin isn't too hard to find. It's disappointing to lose this card to say the least.

Weichel lost, John Teixeira won rounds 1 + 2, I don't see how you can give that fight to Weichel.
