Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: January - Week 2 of 2

New, comments
Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Week 2 of 2! (I know i said there would be 3 weeks in the January game, but i was not aware of how abysmal last week's line-up was. I made the executive decision to skip it. Puts more weight on this second and final week of the month) This week is loaded with a bunch of high-level fights with some pretty even odds.

This week's action includes: Vargas vs Berchelt, Miura vs Roman, Zlaticanin vs Garcia, Selby vs Barros, Frampton vs Santa Cruz and more!

last chance to use those doubles and triples!

Huge fights with equally huge point values to be had, this month is still wide open for anyone to win!.

Week 2 of 2! "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.
