A lock of the day streak of 17 in a row, barely! Overall, I’m at streak of 26.
So, my streak barely hung on, as Alexander Gustafsson in my eyes squeaked by. On the feet, he got out classed for the most part and it was his wrestling that won him the bout. My upset of the day Ilir Latifi had his moments, but Ryan Bader put him away with a knee from hell. Anyways, if you don’t know what this post is all about, I’ll briefly fill you in. I can only select one fighter to be my lock of the week and that said fighter, can only be selected once this year (2016). I earn 1 point for a correct pick, however a wrong pick will reset me back to 0. I can add an additional 1 point to my total by picking an upset right, which does not reset my total if it’s wrong (That’s to make me look better). I will tweak this as we go!
