Mania Money Pool Results: UFC on FX 6/TUF 16 Finale Combo



2 awesome events and they're free! If you're not impressed by these two free`cards then I don't know what will please you. Two KOs in both the main event and a bevy of submissions, knock outs and exciting fights. In our won money pool, the boys are now being separated from the men as we have seen Pride able to hold on to the top spot while BNF is just 9 points away. Consistency as my weapon, I have slowly crept up and is now on third. With one more event to go, this will be a free-for-all royal rumble with money on the bank ramifications. With these, let's keep the ball rolling.

  • 17 people (55%) in our camp picked the Aussie to beat Pearson who was chosen by 14 people (45%) in our camp. After three rounds and 3 servings of china wares later from G-Sot's chin, 14 people won.
  • 8 people in our camp (26%) picked Meathead and boy did they pay heavily as Roy KTFO Matt in the first round.
  • 6 people (19%) in our camp were probably, up to this point, astounded by the limb-crushing powers of Toquinho. In fact, when I look at the names of these six: ViolentMike, goldmouth, Yan117, Ulf_Murphy, ricky-dooby, and ohmamadoes, except for ohmamadoes, the previous five used to be good pickers and may have lost their touch this season.
  • 23 people (74%) picked TJ Waldburger and boy did he deliver with that slick submission.
  • 21 people picked Tiger against TUF scrub Pinchel and after one punch, it proved the decision to be right.
  • 20 people (65%) picked Diamond to cut through Brookins and he roughed up the TUF season winner with a slick choke.
  • 19 people (61%) picked Wolverine and he won but not through the grinder this time.
  • 17 people (55%) picked Pyle to win and most of us picked a decision win. 2 finishes in a row now for Pyle, something to take heed of.
  • Only 12 people (39%) picked Bedford and the other 19 people were "brutalized" by their decision not to pick the TUFer.
  • 17 people (55%) picked Tim Eliott and he grinded the chances of the 14 people who picked Papazian.
  • ONLY 6 PEOPLE picked Brain Fart Barry to win. Can't believe this but Pat didn't self-destruct tonight and actually put SDR to sleep. Props to Pride, kg12, VicDundee, CDSMid, Aussie and ohmamadoes for taking risk and picking Pat to win.
  • If there's one advise I could give to letstalkmma and scarnon, it is the fact that Mike Pierce almost always win by either unanimous decision or split decision. Even if Seth is on a great winning streak, nothing can stop the decision train.
  • 21 people (68%) picked Wolverine and the X-Men slashed Coffer's breathing forcing him to tap out.
  • unambig, dlocc, wyldeman99, ricky-dooby picked Beltran because they want to hit the jackpot and boy DID they hit the jackpot. Igor probably underestimated Beltran and Joey forgot he was supposed to be the human punching bag for Igor. Well, I guess sometimes roles do change and Igor was dumb tonight.
  • 22 people picked the Karate guy to win the Smashes and he blitzed through Mr. Diary to the dismay of the 9 people who picked him.
  • 20 people picked the guy with a Wikipedia page to beat Cody. Hey unambig, sometimes a guy named Cody and who has no Wikipedia page can pull out a surprise.
  • 19 people picked Parke to put a stop to the Freakshow down under and he did that by showing how weak Collin is when clinched and thrown to the mat.
  • 20 people hoped that Alloway can put the douche to sleep and boy did he knocked Chalate's face down the mat.
  • I can't understand why Rolandando, dlocc, wyldeman99, Aussie, and u_had_me_at_kimura picked Loughnane. I just can't.
  • Once again, unambig and letstalkmma decided to be adventurous and picked the fighter that almost no one picked in Colton Smith. Hey, the former Marines might pull a rabbit out of a hat and actually win. The trick proved good for Colton as he wrestlefucked Ricci. Unambig even got perfect score for picking a soldier rape a Canadian.I would have enjoyed if Chrsitina Ricci was the one wrestlefucked but the sight of Martian being raped in the ground is just not pleasing to my eye.


  • Unambig hit the jackpot in this high scoring combo as he led the Mania pack with 122 points. Good job for a man who would't want his awesome fan post to be rec'd by the community. unambig only went 14/21 correct picks but got perfect scores for Nelson, Lombard, TJ, Tim, Pierce, Wilkinson, Colton Smith and Mendes. Congrats unambig.
  • Our 17 year old boy AJ Sanabriaman notched second place this event as he scored two points fewer than unambig. AJ scored 119 points going 15/21 with 7 perfect picks.
  • Yours truly got the third place for this event scoring 116 points, going 16/21 correct picks but only getting 5 perfect picks. Watch out everyone, Phase is creeping up.
  • kimuraalloveryourface will face the wrath of unambig this event as he just managed to score 64 points on a very high scoring game. He went 8/21 and got only three picks perfect.
