The mountains heaved, heaved and heaved and produced a lackluster, calculated, unanimous decision.
Trust me on this: Every time a fight gets hyped to eternity, expect a unanimous decision to ensue. This was what happened when the much talked about and marketed fight between two former close friends turned out to be a dud.
This fight was like a girl promising the best sex of your life and then when you do her, it sucks.
But hey, this is not my personal blog so forgive me for my rants and let's proceed to the main thing, should we.

Interesting Facts From The Money Pool Camp and the Fight:
- Two hype trains were derailed tonight as the Max Murderer and Wonderboy both lost against their opponents. Only Seven (7) Maniacs picked Brown and only Eight (8) picked Brimage.
- Something is wrong with Mark Hominick guys. Being beaten by a guy who no one picked at the pool is ridiculous! 34-0 and 0 won.
- In another surprise, Miguel Angel Torres was knocked out by Mayday. I mean I wouldn't be surprised if Mayday wins this but to be knocked out in the first round? What happened to the guy who was once contending with Anderson Silva and GSP for the best pound for pound best fighter in the world?
- Who's next for Jon Jones? Hendo. I doubt if it will be competitive. Then Heavyweight
- Despite all the garbage that Joe Rogan is trying to spew about how legit Che Mills is, he showed that he is nothing but an overmatched opponent for Rory. Mills picked Zaromski's feet and then kicked him in the face? He's legit, he can't even stuff the telegraphed one leg takedown of Rory!
- In a bombshell, Mir is scheduled to be brutalized by JDS for UFC 146 and Fedor is scheduled to face one of the greatest fighter in the world (circa 1990s) in Pedro Rizzo. That was a true bombshell.
The Money Pool Result
- Taking first (1st) place for the last event of the very competitive Mania Money Pool is the sixteen-year old (16) brazilian jiu-jiutsu practitioner The Pride. He won the event by scoring a whopping seventy-eight (78) points by acing 9 out of 12 fights and getting perfect scores on Rothwell, Danzig, Njokuani and Brown. Congratulations Andrew! You made the DarkSide proud kid.
- Garnering second (2nd) is the MIA Dark Sith himself, DetroitDrew who scored seventy-two (72) points by also getting 9/12 correct picks and getting full scores for Rothwell, Danzig, and Njokuani. DarkSide domination once again Drewbaby.
- Taking third (3rd) place is two-time event winner BNF who scored danago's favorite position sixty-nine (69) by getting 8 out of 12 fights correct and getting full points on Danzig, Njokuani and Brown.
- Taking the place of sarah asthe worst picker of this event is Canadian rookie Scottidog who scored a miserable twenty-five (25) points. Rookie mistake? He called 3 out of 12 fights correct getting Brimage, Danzig and MacDonald (who doesn't get McDonald anyway?). I don't know what bit you Scotti but picking Mkdessi and Griggs should just be enough punishment for you. The Pride will give you your sig later.

End of season Results and Afterthoughts:
- Call him goatfucker, traitor, the Dark Sith, fag, emotional fag but DetroitDrew emerged as the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of this pool. After ten (10) events, the leader of the much-respected Darkside scored 674 points (averaging 67.4 points per game). There is actually no secret to Drew's victory. He picked consistently, having no scored below forty (40). What is amazing about Drew's run in the pool is that he never once won an event but he still managed to consistently be in the top five or ten. Congratulations Drew. I hope you come back to Mania soon. Your self-exile to the land of the FAGS called Bloody Elbow will not help you develop. Stinky was sorry and he meant it.
- This rabid Kyu and that garbage talentless hack Motmaire's number one fan ViolentMike gets to be this season's salutatorian. He scored 636 points. VM once won an event for this season but he also still managed to pick consistently and he was able to do some accurate picks: Siyar KOing Paulo Thiago. Perhaps Archangel Azrael and Maria's brother were assiting VM in his picks. That we have to find out.
- Coming in third is Rookie of the Year and Ricky Dooby's newest member of the Fingered Club ItalianStallion54. This alumni of the Free Pool gave hope to the thousands of lurkers on mania and the current roster of the free pool that even a rookie can manage to win in the pool. He scored 621 points and edged out Scottidog, Thorazine and Jido as the Mania Money Pool Rookie of the Year. Congratulations brother.
- Not only did Darth Drew captured 2nd overall in points for Playground, Shivan Tiger finished 3rd overall for wagers.. Good job shiv.. nice strategy you picked up during the season..

- Fuck you yagin! u lost me an event win, 20 dollars from that, and taking 3rd in the fucking pool FUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKK YOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUU--- The Pride
- Jones is going down! - d’locc
- These two are gonna hug it out when its all done Saturday night. - Two Words
- fuck schaub. He tried calling out past their prime legends and nog fisted his ass and face. Pussy chin goin down - The Pride
- This is the first exciting fight on the card. Both have superb standup and I expect this to be a very entertaining war. I also expect Makdessi to hurt Anthony big time. It seems he's the underdog, but that's only because he was choked out quickly by Dennis Hallman. Well sure, and so was Matt Hughes. Twice. The Canadian takes this. - unambig
- in that case, Im going with Wiesniewski...im desperate. - Two Words
This one is dedicated to DavidWS. Wherever you are man. We miss you. We hope you are okay.
That's a wrap Maniacs.
