Winner of Fight: 5pts
Method of Victory: 2pts
Round of Victory: 3pts
If you correctly pick the winner, method, and round for a given fight, you receive a 5pt bonus.
If a fight ends in a draw or no contest that fight will be scored as 0pts for all users.
In the instance of a DQ victory, the winner is worth 5pts and the round is 3pts. 5pt bonuses are not given for DQ victories.
So why is round worth more than method?
The way we see it, method can be "easy" to pick for some fighters. Derrick Lewis is looking to land bombs. Alexey Oleynik wants another Ezekiel choke. Round is less obvious, so we gave a bump in points to it.

Scoring system philosophy
Our goal is to create a scoring system that encourages users to predict the result they think will happen. With that in mind, we kept the point values for decision, KO/TKO, and submission the same to avoid favoring one outcome over the other. If you think the outcome will be decision, we want you to pick that. We don't want you to feel forced to pick 3rd Round submission just because it's worth X more points.
1. How are fights scored?

2. What happens with draws, no contests, and DQs?

Whoever has the most total points across all contests during that season. Tiebreaker will go down to who has the most total correct picks. If that's still a tie, we go down to most first place finishes. From there, Top 10 Finishes. If there still isn't a clear champion, I'm deleting FightPicks from the internet.

For Season Mode, winning a contest nets you a first place trophy.
