We are being treated to a rather random assortment of violence this weekend. I've cobbled together some bits from around the globe and we'll call it Week 8.

Check the standings and see how many doubles and triples you have left here.

Alrighty ... Let's get it get it get it!

For those that haven't played before, welcome to the best pick'em game going. Please join right in and start playing (just make sure to check out the rules - we promise they are very simple).

The numbers in your selections are binding, not the names which you can leave out. The numbers will suffice.

Please follow the instructions at the bottom of this post - it makes it easier for me to tabulate the results each week.

Please fill out your selections as follows:

Enter the LETTER of the fight first, then whether it’s a single (1), double (2) or triple (3) followed by the NUMBER of your pick. (The name of the fighter and method of victory are optional).
