Mania Money Pool 4: UFC 130 Results

 Wow, this pool has blown up!  A year ago we had about 10 people, now there's over 50!  Good work to Kevin and Jay for getting this thing started last year and keeping up with it.  And especially this year, Jay spearheaded the push for more contestants, and now we're battling for a nice big pot. Thanks Jay. 

Just a little history on the previous season Champs:

Season #1: Violent Mike

Season #2: BNF

Season #3: Violent Mike

Who will be the Season #4 title-holder? Will Violent Mike be able to pull off a remarkable feat and win another season to hold onto his belt? The competition is alot thicker now and it seems like there's one guy who just proved his practice swing wasn't just luck...Ulf Murphy.

Ulf Murphy walked into town last night like Clint Eastwood in a Western, makin his name known in the Season 3 Finale (which did not count), and then following it up last night. He told us he was coming.  Most disregarded it to luck, and reminded Ulf that it doesn't count yet, and lets see how you do when moneys on the line.  Well, like Frankie did to BJ, he just proved it and pocketed a cool $20.

How'd He Do It? Ulf managed to go 10/10 in his picks, picking 2 clear underdogs in Mighty Mouse Johnson and Rick Story, and snatching that 2 point dog bonus.  Good call on both guys.  He also maxed out on points in the Mir-Nelson clash, winning 22 points.  Another good call was the Browne first round KO. 

Rounding out the top 3 are two other guys who also picked Browne by 1st Rd KO and filled up on the Heavyweight daily-double...Hairybumcrack (what a name!) and PHISH NATION.  Hairy went 9/10, taking dogs like Story and Johnson, also gettin full points on the main event.  PHISH went 8/10, also gettin a perfect-11 on Page and calling Boetsch and Stann right for the 11.

BASEMENT DWELLER OF THE NIGHT:  Kevjack115 - If Ulf is a tobacco-chewin Clint Eastwood, Kev would be William H. Macy in The Cooler.  If he can bet on losing, he'd be rich.  Kev picked 4/10, getting the minimum 5 on Page, Stann, MacDonald, and Tibau (he earned an extra 2pts for choosing submission).      

HOT BOUT OF THE NIGHT: Frank Mir vs. Roy Nelson - Since this fight counts for double-points, it made a large impact in the standings since the picks were almost split down the middle.  27 out of the 50 managed to pick that fight correctly, and alot of those managed to get the full 22 points.   

UNDERDOG PICK OF THE NIGHT:  Rick Story  - Picked by only 13/50 (27%) of Maniacs.  Picking Rick Story would've also gained you the extra 2point bonus.

I know someone mentioned having the winner of each event pick the last place's new sig.  Well, looks like we have a familiar face in last, but as you all know Kev doesn't live here anymore.  But you can check him out at www.mondaymorningblackbelt.com where he and Worby have some really good write-ups, just don't take his picks to the bank.

Alright Maniacs, there you have it! The NEW Mania Money Pool Season #4 is underway and the race is on!  Discuss!

UPDATES:  -A new contestant (Griffinfan05) paid his money and made his picks on-time, but didn't accept the league invite on time.  Jay and I are discussing this. 

-PML did not pay up, so he will be removed from this season.

-Ulf Murphy finished tied for 5th best score on ALL of mmaplayground.com.
