So I wrote this last week “Once again, I nailed my lock of the day and flaked hard on the upset of the day.” I think this applies to picking Belal Muhhammad as my lock and Uriah Hall as my underdog. 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!
Streak: 19 (Lock of the Day) + 9 (Upset of the Day) = 28
Lock of the Day: Cyborg Santos
Note: I’m not passing this…
Upset of the Day: Paul Felder
Note: A former lock of the day, Felder now joins the ranks of my upsets of the day. With his dynamic striking, maybe he can catch Trinaldo…maybe
