After every UFC event, I go hop online to check my fantasy picks on the UFC's Fantasy site. I always do quite well, never finishing out of the top 1%. So, when I found BE's fight picks on MMAPlayground.com, I thought that I would do well, even against people who know MMA very well. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
In the UFC Fantasy for UFN 18, I finished 88th out of 16639. I was happy with this. I thought, "Damn, I picked 10/11 fights, I must have dominated on MMAPlayground." Then, I logged on and looked. Not only did I not dominate, I didn't even compete with the top ranking members.
Out of 87 participants, I finished 28th, 29 points below the winner. I picked 10/11 fights correctly and didn't even break the top 10. If anything, this just shows what a knowledgeable fan base that reads and participates at BE. 'Grats to everyone who did well, and I wish more people would participate in the picks for the fights. Too bad I thought Jorge Rivera wasn't that good.
