Wow. Just wow. Totally unexpected. The UFC went out with a bang in its debut in the Chinese market as it produced a good card.

Mania1 camp:

  • I admire NNR and CDS Mid for going against the tide and picking Cung Le to win against the favorite pick to win. NNR also got the best score for the fight as he got 9 points after picking the Tekken star to win by 3rd round KO. CDSMid, meanwhile chose Le to pick up a decision. Unfortunately, NNR and CDSMid have the same chance as Derrick Rose playing in Chicago's next game than actually cracking the top 10 of the money pool.
  • 3 people went against the tide once again and picked Paulo Thiago to win against DHK. Unfortunately, lightning won't strike twice this time and we gave 0 praise to wyldeman99, Yan117 and Aussie who picked the Brazilian SWAT.
  • 26 people (84%) picked Fukuda and he did FUK DeblASS's.
  • 5 people picked Hellhound to beat Mizugaki. Come on Shiv and the rest of your crew, better study player's experiences before picking.
  • 21 people picked Lineker to beat Urushitani and that's what happened.
  • 7 people picked Nedkov to win against Silva and after 2 rounds of hanging in there, the 7 people succumbed to the arm triangle that costs 0 points.
  • Only five people picked Gomi here and the rest (21 people) were fucked by the judges.
  • Only 3 people picked the Mongolian Wolf to beat Super Saiyan. Aside from Tuck's unbearable smile, he is a good fighter as he showed in his domination of the hometown boy.
  • 5 people picked Mr. Tezuka but Bruce Leroy gave them the 0 points as he won by split decision.

The scores:

  • Yours truly won this event by scoring a camp high 76 points getting 7 out of 9 points and getting perfect scores for 5 of them including the Hot Bout. This might be the momentum I have been waiting for to crack the top 5 next event.WATCH OUT!
  • scarnon and Scottidog, my twitter buddies, won the bridesmaids award this event by scoring 6 fewer than me.
  • GSP's General Yan got the basement dweller award this event scoring a miserable 22 points getting 2/9 correct picks. Your ass is mine Yan. Here is your sig which you will wear till the next event.

Yan117, staying in a hotel in Edmonton phoned room service for some pepper.

"Black pepper, or white pepper?" asked the concierge.

"Toilette pepper!"
