MMA Mania Money Pool: Week 8 UFC 139 results

Wanderlei-silva-ufc-84_medium

via cdn3.sbnation.com

UFC 139 is behind us and this was a night that was dominated by Pride alumuni.  Whilst everybody is going to be discussing the 5 round war between Dan Henderson and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua for years to come I have to admit that the highlight of the night for me was without a doubt the return of the Axe Murderer as Wanderlei Silva knocked out the former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion (apparently beating Frank Shamrock for a title you refuse to defend is a big deal now) Cung Le in the second round.  Whilst the nature of the stoppage may be questionable what can't be disputed is that Le was hurt badly by the vicious knees and hooks of Silva and after the devastating KO loss to Chris Leben it must feel like redemption tonight both for Wanderlei and his MMA family.  Congratulations Wand.

 

For years Henderson-Shogun has been the dream fight that never happened in Pride.  The former MW champion and 2005 MW GP winner have faced a who's who of legendary 205lb fighters and finally we got to see who the better man was.  And boy it didn't disappoint, this was a war from the start as Hendo battered Shogun with overhooks and uppercuts bloodying up the former UFC LHW champion but Shogun came back and attacked with his own uppercuts and even took down the Greco-Roman wrestler.  I don't know how he survived the 3rd round but not only did he survive Shogun came back and won the final 2 rounds taking advantage of a tired Hendo and almost  finished with a rear naked choke in the 4th before winning a lopsided final round as the fight went to the distance.  Ultimately it was Hendo who went away with the victory and whilst it wasn't the Fight of the Century that some are claiming it to be it was an all-time classic and both men gave absolutely everything that they had.

 

Oh and Faber is going to fight Cruz again in his 4th title fight in 9 matches but nobody outside of California cares about that.  

 

Now onto the statistics from this event and whilst it lacked the big number of upsets from last week it did still produce some gamechanging scores as The Greg fell from 2nd to 8th and sarah fell from 4th to 6th (and after I forgot about sarah last week she's going to be even more annoyed at me for pointing this out), with The Pride moving into the top 3 and our resident OG loudmouth trio of experts NNR (2nd), Ricky Dooby (4th) and Violent Mike (5th) all being in contention to take our money.  Agar slightly increased his lead at the top by a point but it's still razor thin at the top, the silent assassin strikes again.  Can he do what Mike couldn't and retain his crown as money pool champion?  It's looking likely.

Event winner (The Dan Henderson/Mauricio Rua award of excellence)

 

Just as I predicted during the event thread it was our resident OG lottery winner himself Ricky Dooby aka Stinky Fingers who came out with the victory to earn himself another $20.  My 3rd favourite person from the 209 produced some excellent picks to earn 88 points, including 22 points on the hot fight after picking Stephan Bonnar by UD and 11 points each on Miguel Torres by UD, Baczynski by 2nd round submission and Ryan Bader by 1st round KO.  Unfortunately for Stinky that money is going straight into Violent Mike's bank account after their bet on Henderson-Shogun so despite finishing 3rd (79 points) I guess Mike is the real winner afterall.  As for our last event winner, 2nd Words once again lived up to his name as he goes away with nothing despite scoring 83.  Good but not good enough this time mate.

 

Biggest loser (The Alex Soto award of mediocrity)

 

The whipping boy of the MMA Mania Fantasy Football B League himself PHISH NATION once again produced abysmal numbers, scoring only 10 points after once again failing to lock in all of his picks.  PHISH only managed to pick 4 fights, with only 1 including the method, earning 5 points each by picking Bader and Faber.  Speaking of failing to lock in all of your picks, Ain't No Sunshine let himself down scoring 25 from just 3 picks including 11 from Faber by 2nd round submission.  If this was a 3 fight event then ANS would have been in contention to win it, unfortunately for him this show wasn't on FOX.

 

As for everyone who bothered to lock in their picks, the wooden spoon is shared by BNF and in a shocking twist The Greg, who loses his runners up spot after only scoring 29 points.  Greg's only correct picks were Castillo, Baczynski by 2nd round finish, Weidman, McDonald and Kampmann by decision.  I don't know what you were thinking picking Nick Pace, clearly somebody missed the weigh-ins or was paid to lose (I'm looking at you NNR).  As for BNF he went 1 better than me and scored 0 on the main card.  His points came from Castillo by TKO, Torres, Weidman, McDonald by TKO and Bader.  Remember when BNF was good at picking fights?  Now those days look as distant as BJ Penn's championship run.

 

Underdog pick (The Wanderlei Silva award of underappreciation)

 

Only 8 other people believed in the Axe Murderer and their faith was rewarded following Wanderlei's 2nd round TKO victory over Marshall Law from Tekken.  Whilst it was far from a vintage performance from Silva and it highlighted Le's limitations more than anything else it was still great to see the former Pride Middleweight Champion earn another KO victory especially in a fight that he was expected to lose by the alleged experts of the MMA community including 29 money pool players and Joe Rogan.  Out of the 9 of us that picked Wand, congratulations go to Wand's #1 fan D*Locc for scoring full points and an honourary mention for the event champion as Stinky's Wand TKO pick earnt him 7 points helping him win money that he lost to Mike 30 minutes later.  Unfortunately for me the 7 points that I picked up (I had Wand by 1st round KO) were the only points that I managed to earn from the main card so my score was awful again but who cares, for 1 night at least the Axe Murderer is back.
