    It was between Attraction, Jaws, and Mikkel, but Attraction's prediction seems closest to the actual outcome.

    Everyone agree?

    i agree, but claim victory on the premise that attraction is a floyd nuthugging troll.

    I think Jaws is closer...he predicting one knockdown...while Attraction predicted two.

    Their overall predictions are very close and similar...but in my eyes...the tie-breaker is the number of knockdowns.

    i saw the same fight that happened, I just thought there would be charity rounds given to marquez...so attraction was close to the actual score

    Wasn't this the official score?

    120-107, 119-108 and 118-109

    If that's really the score...Jaws wins.

    But he should get penalized by his two knockdown prediction.

    Nothing against Attraction...but I see your prediction closer than his.

    I just want someone to verify this as the final official score:

    120-107, 119-108 and 118-109

    If it is...no doubt about it...Jaws' final prediction was the closest.

    I have no agenda here...I really don't really know either Attraction or Jaws that much...I'm trying to be completely fair here.

    If I were Rebel...and I'm only speaking for myself...to be fair to all parties involved...since both Attraction and Jaws are both correct in slightly different ways...I would split the winnings...50-50.

    But that's just me.

    ...or to be super duper fair...Rebel should give each $100...and call it a day...that's what he gets for not covering all his bases effectively...

    :mex:

    I think Attraction was closer because he predicted a complete whitewash on all scorecards. Jaws' prediction held that JMM would win some rounds.

    That said, if Attraction has no issues, I'll split the prize.

    I personally saw the fight 120-107...my official cards thing was because i figured there'd be some closish rounds here and there (and there were 3 or so) where the judges would give them to Marquez and make the score look respectable.

    Attraction's prediction more accurately describes the fight.

    whatever people think is fair, I don't mind.

    Even Jaws agrees you were closer.

    Attraction, PM your PayPal info or a valid mailing address.

    You are the winner of this contest! Congrats! :clappy:
