First off, I am absolutely pissed drunk and it's about 4am here so don't expect anything special. Just be glad us free-poolers don' have to wait til next week to comment, bitch, complain or brag, so here fkn goes!
UFC from Sydney Australia is in the books!
Last weekend, UFC was, BIG in Japan. This weekend however, it just turned up in Australia. Sorry Oz, I can see a trend here already, and I cannot see it changing anytime soon, so ye better get used to havin 'small' cards. In saying that, these type of events usually come up trumps against many ppv events for exciting quality fights. Tonight was no exception. As with Japan's card, upsets were also on the agenda.
This event almost really had everything,
- Slick submissions.
- Plenty of Tko's.
- End to end stand up wars.
- Snatching victory from jaws of defeat.
- Historic bouts.
- Raucous crowd.
- A heavyweight somersault ffs.
- A result bein awarded wrongly.
Lots of love for Herb Dean by the Aussie crowd!
A quick results recap:
The main event was some great match making by Joe Silva. It was a very hard fight to call, and it just so happened to be the Hot Bout pick also. So close to call it was in fact split 50/50 between us. However, it wasn't as close as we figured, yet ended in dramatic fashion.
Speaking of close....
The top 2 in our free pool were separated by only 1 point, here is the event's top 3:
In 1st place with 65 points...............Karpentero.
Karpentero scores with 8/11 correct picks with Waldburger and the Te Huna his 2 perfect bouts. This moves him from 9th overall to 6th back in contention for a possible top 3 finish.
In 2nd place with 64 points..........Letstalkmma.
Letstalkmma scores with 7/10 correct picks with 3 perfect picks. One of these perfect picks was an inspired underdog pick for Andrew Craig rewarded with 2 bonus points.
In 3rd place with 55 points.......tr8k.
tr8k scores with 6/10 correct picks with 3 perfect scores with Te Huna,Shawn Jordan and only the 2nd person to score perfect with Andrew Craig.
Prokk27, as he was the only person to pick Steven Siler earning a very nice 9 points for that.
And the salad at the barbeque is CDSmid who picked just 2/10 scoring a very paltry 12 points.
