FreePool Results (TUF15 Finale)


The dreaded TUF Finale.

It has finally arrived, like an unloved mother in-law. For many, this is the single event when we collectively think, ''OH SHIT!''. It's the event of the season where we only know the headliners. When we draw names from a hat and pray for the best. Blindly making picks from records alone or doing a last minute research from hastily downloaded TUF episodes. It's a make or break event, one that need's to be capitalized on.

But for some...

It's a just reward. A rewarding ending for those who have followed it from the start. The final, the answer, the end. So those who have followed the whole season have another reward, knowledge. They know the fighters, the history, the inside story that many of us don't have. And that could be rewarded with big points!


TUF 15.

Tonight's event showcased a fair bit of talent, and a fair amount of piss poor fighters who wont be back. With an event that only produced two decisions in 10 fights, it just shows how much progress has been made in the mma world. Submission finishes and T/ko finishes were equal with 40% each. That's a huge improvement on overall finish percentages, thank fuck for that too. I'm talkin absolute shite now at this stage ffs.

Actually, make a point of telling me that I'm wrong, but I think that skeletal chick ref made the right call to stop that arm from breakin. Tap or snap I know, but maybe not anymore!?

The loser of this event can look forward to a sig of the winners choosing!

Let's just see how we all did bitches!!

In 3rd place we have:



With his previous best being joint 4th, Fulch takes down 3rd place with 50 points. Whoever comes 3rd with only 50% of his picks correct, is a lucky fucker. That's right, half his picks were wrong. Yet he took 3rd with only 2 perfect picks, (Hot-bout and Oliveira).

Gangster stole 3rd,

In the runner-up spot:



Making his debut in the top 3 of an event and securin 2nd spot was Stazza with 54 points. He managed this with a more respectable 8/10 correct. Of these correct picks, only one was perfect, and it wasn't the hot-bout. The perfect was the Lawrence fight and scored 10 in the hot-bout.

Undisputed winner:



(Insert fake name here) wins tonight event with a not so spectacular, but definitive, score of 59 points. With 6 out of 12 corrects predictions, 3 of those were perfect. With 11 points taken from Sicilia and Cruickshank, he also aced the hot bout to make sure of top spot and top 3 for the 3rd time in 4 events. That's the consistency of a champion.

Well done.

Shit picker!

This week's shit picker award goes to McRad. Deciding to pick only 3 bouts, he failed miserably, get absolutely fuck all points. None, zero, nil. 0/3 predictions = 0 points awarded, shit picker award, and a shity new sig from ??(the winner???


Generally, the hot scores were quite poor tonight lads, especially compared to last week. To realise the importance of the hot-bout just look at who finished 4th .With a score of 49 with 8/10 correct picks, IrishKev finished 4th, by a single point. Just 14 on this would have won the event for him. Aw well, tough shit Kev!

Season standings!

Tonight's biggest impovers were IrishKev and the event runner-up, Stazza. Both had moved up the chart by 7 places, but fail to make any difference on the top 3.

The biggest loser does not go to our shit picker, but instead, its goes to Larry who slid by 8 places!
