Here's how players earn their way to the playoffs: a win is worth 3 points, a draw is worth 1 and a loss is worth zero points. Fighters can earn bonus points for a stoppage based on the round. A first-round stoppage (knockout, submission, disqualification, injury) is worth 3 bonus points. A second-round stoppage is worth 2, and a third-round stoppage is worth 1. In the case of a tie in the standings, the fighter with faster finishes places higher.
