Mania Money Pool 4: UFC 131 Results

Just Two_Good.

The UFC rolled into Van City last night with a less-than-stellar card on paper, but proved you can't always judge a book by its cover.  The talent pool is deep and you can't underestimate anyone, even the rookies.  The UFC scouts the world, just like any other major sport, and recruits guys like Jason Young, who can step in and compete against the top of the division.  Overall, it was a great card, but then again I might be just a little biased :)

This Oldboy is coming for revenge, and I'm bringing my trusted hammer.   

[tap on shoulder]  "Agar, like I said before, you're sitting in my seat!  Get the fuck out lurker!"


How'd I Do It?  I went 11 for 12 last night, grabbing perfect-11's on Florian, Elkins, The Polish Experiment, and calling 3rd round TKO for the Mexicutioner.  I also supersized my combo, grabbin 22pts on Munoz-Maia.  The only fight I missed, was an underdog pick with James Head.  I was already playing for free (thanks stink), and now I'm up $20!

ANS clouded the title picture by moving himself into contention with a solid performance, going 11 for 12.  Sunshine took home full points on Cerrone, Florian, Poirier, and also called a 1st round submission for Weidman.  The only fight ANS got wrong was the controversial decision that favored Darren Elkins. Well, thank-you incompetent judging.

Rounding out the top 3 is a tie between Dlocc and Cali.  Both guys called Florian, Elkins, and Cerrone right.  Both also made a great call with a Pee-Wee 2nd round TKO.  Cali double-downed on Munoz, while Dlocc added 11 for Poirier.    

UNDERDOG PICK OF THE NIGHT:  Darren Elkins - This wasn't a card for the underdog, as Elkins was only a slight underdog, favoring 45% of the picks (22 out of 49).  If you got this fight right, ya got lucky!

HOT BOUT OF THE NIGHT:  Mark Munoz vs. Damien Maia - This was one of the hardest fights to call.  I switched my picks a few times, but ended up sticking with Munoz by UD.  There were so many ways this fight could end, and making it a hot bout made it that much more important.  In the first round Maia surprised everyone with his always-improving stand-up, and nearly got a tko early on.  Even with a loss here, Maia looked good.

BASEMENT DWELLER(S) OF THE NIGHT:  NNR & newfie-  Scoring a measly 3 for 12, NNR's only decent pick was Weidman by submission.  newfie scored 5/12, gettin 7pts for callin Beltran by TKO.  [ passes you both the basement torch]  Welcome to the Hall of Shame boys.

The cream is rising.  Agar took the 17th spot this week, but it was enough to hold onto his belt, maintaining a 9-point lead from Dlocc, who is now in sole posession of the 2nd spot (I'll be there soon Dlocc).  Drew also moved up a few spots to get into money contention, but he's got someone sneakin up behind him.
