UFC 141 “Lesnar vs. Overeem” on Friday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas represents the final chance to preview the public beta of Sherdog MMA Pick’Em, the site’s new MMA fantasy game, which officially launches in January. Registration is available through Sherdog.com and Facebook.

UFC 141 features a heavyweight title eliminator between former UFC champion Brock Lesnar and onetime Strikeforce titleholder Alistair Overeem. Lesnar, 34, has not fought since surrendering his heavyweight crown to Cain Velasquez 14 months ago. Overeem will carry a seven-fight winning streak into his promotional debut.

Within Sherdog MMA Pick’Em, players will earn points based on correct match-by-match predictions for a given event. A maximum of 210 points can be picked up in a single match.

Players are awarded 50 points for each correct pick, along with 30 additional points if they choose the correct method: decision, knockout/technical knockout or submission. If the method involves a finish, 30 additional points will be awarded to players who choose the correct round in which the finish occurs. Players are also allowed five boosts per event through which they can notch an additional 100 points for outcomes about which they feel particularly certain. However, any incorrect selections involving boosts will cost the player 50 points.
