    The odds you posted before are what counts? If so I'll take another gamble and go with Aldo, if we go by current odds I'm taking Teymur

    It's the Lock challenge. The aim is to make the longest streak of picking winners regardless of odds. If you feel you have to pick the overwhelming favourite some of the events in order to move forward, it's completely OK. The odds are more of an aftertought.

    Kyle is right, the main goal is to pick a 'lock' to hopefully move on to the next event.
    The odds are secondary.
    You can still take anybody on the card as your pick, if you don't post again in this thread before the event starts I will give you Teymur (to me it sounded like you are more confident in him than Aldo).

    And yes, the odds that I posted before will count.
    The odds for Freitas v Colares were not out back then, the odds will be Freitas (1.80) and Colares (2.00) if you choose one of those two.

    But you had the last "seasons" leaders determined by units, so if you pick fighters with higher odds you can get up to a higher total of units even if you get eliminated earlier than others just picking heavy favorits, no?
    Aldo it is

    I didn't really follow the thread last time, but I think it's whoever has the longest streak wins. If you are eliminated in the same event as someone else, the odds matter at that point to rank between those players. So in theory, the guy that wins this challenge can actually have won less money than someone that got out a few events prior. At least that was my interpretation of how this works.

    It is not possible to enter after the 1st event, BUT the current event has started now and there was just one guy not stating his next pick (BarArm).
    His first pick was Gillespie with those shitty 1.18 odds so I will make an exception for you - you can replace BarArm.
    No further exceptions will be made!

    After your last two picks I'm taking this as a nice confidence boost in my Ishihara bet.
