The new season has finally arrived.
Okay, it was only 2 weeks, but that's long enough. Last season the scores were quite competetive with some respectable scoring against the moneypool scores, so lets keep it up ffs. There is no defending champ this season, as MrGrapplefan decided to fuck off and try his luck in the Moneypool. Well, good luck to him. So now we search for a new champ, who can then decide to fuck off and try their luck next season elsewhere.
UFC on Fox had a line-up that had excitement written all over it. And despite the fact that 50% of all the fights tonight went to decision, it most certainly did not disappoint. The biggest disappointment tonight definitely was the crowd. Lavar Johnson, Puhlease, they were not ''Awesome' FFS. It has to be said, they let New Jersey down.
Speaking of disappointment, Nick Denis, shit the fuckin bed bad style. Seriously, I believe that there should have been more t/ko finishes. If you have a fighter rocked, please don't stand there and admire your handy work. Maybe it's just me, but I believe there could have been a minimum of 2 more t/ko's tonight.
Oh, and Paul Harris, that's what you call a motha fuckin reality check!
Despite his loss, Miller is nowhere near to bein a gate-keeper. Yes, someone actually mentioned that. Doubts destroyed, Diaz is fuckin legit! No doubt now he is a future champ.

Introducing some new members of the Freepool:
Cocky, confident and a cheat? Whatever, he's here to give us all a lesson. Oh, look at meee, I come from the moneypool and I'm reservin 1st place. We shall see!
A fuckin lurker, will read this and say nothin. Mind you, Agar was also a lurker...
Fuck you too!
This man has got ''skills'' and is Phase's pick to win. Enough said.
One of three Paddy's here. Finishes bottom half!
Claims to be a dick and will finish top 5. Most probably is a dick and will finish, umm, 14th
There will probably be a couple of more or some more to join us soon enough. Anyway, enough of this bullshit, time to get down to the all important results.
Here are the top 3
In reverse order comin in third is:
Scoring 65 points with 8/12 correct picks including 3 perfect. Despite not scoring any Bonus points, Raymondo just closed out the top 3 by just two points. Raymondo mentioned to me, '' I didn't know half of the fighters tonight''. Well,he's cracked to three for the 1st time ever. Congrats.
First runner-up of the season goes to:
Scoring a very impressive 91 points 10/12 picks right including 5 perfect picks. With that he also takes 4 bonus points for correctly picking the two underdogs.
Much respect for that score, which also puts you 6th overall on Playground. Damn Good Job!
And finally, in 1st place and winner of the first event is:
Scoring 93 points with a very impressive 10 picks right including a crazy 5 perfect picks. Included with that was14 points in the hot bout and an impressive 4 points Bonus tally with two correct underdog picks.
Deja vu much!
As the only person to score 14 on the Hot-bout, it secured top spot!
With that impressive pickin form, he is now also in the top 3 of all of playground, joint 3rd. Much much respect!
1st and 2nd almost exactly the same, freaky or what? You two have done the Free pool proud. money poolers, how many ye got in the top 10 overall on Playground????
And the Shit Picker award for tonights event goes to the pitiful
With only 3 picks correct, he scored a miserable 19 points. Pot of shit more like ffs.
The hot bout tonight just so happened to be the main event. For those who don't know, the Hot-bout doubles your score. Scoring on the hot-bout can make the difference from 1st place or 5th, scoring a poor 40, or a respectable 62, it's that important. Here is how the Hot points were spread for the night:
No perfect hot bouts tonight, but the only person to hit 14 points, hit top spot tonight!!
