It's a weak week but we must carry on. Sorry for the late notice for the Thursday fights, but you still have about 8 hours to get your picks in.

We already missed what will probably the best fight of the weekend over in Thailand, but perhaps you guys can find something of value in the three picks below. Just pick one to get your 10 point participation bonus and then let's just forget this week ever happen, m'kay?

Check last week's standings, including how many doubles and triples you have left, here.

Oh, and did you miss the POY standings I posted the other day? See those 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).
