If you ever wonder what "shit picker" means or what "11 points" means in a live thread, this is how you participate and find out. This is The Mania Money Pool. Ever hear Unambig bitch about the "hot bout?" Join up and tell him to deal with it. This is what we do. It brings us together and makes us want to kill each other before the scores are read on any given card. Do you have the balls to pick a split decision and can you defend that decision as I unleash my biased judging on you?
I think you're ready so lets go.
This graphic was created by Ricky Doobie and he is getting his ass handed to him this season. Thanks Stinky. You are a great contributor to this pool. The upcoming season will be the 12th.
Now on to how you can join the most prestigious pool in Mixed Martial Arts history.
- If you're interested, please email JOBEN ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
- PLEASE, put the subject: MANIA MONEY POOL (username) in your email.
- Joben will give specific instructions on how you can pay your entry fee ($20 for 10 events)
- NEW SEASON WILL START WITH UFC Fight Night 33 (Hunt vs Bigfoot) on December 7, 2013 and will last until 9 more UFC events, whether pay-per-view of free TV.
- ALL PAYMENTS MUST BE MADE BEFORE THE SECOND EVENT OF SEASON
HOW DO I DO THIS
- Create an account at mmaplayground.com (PG)
- Email Joben and tell him your username at PG
- Joben will invite you to the MANIA1 Camp
- If some worthless piece of trash that has the initials B.E will invite you, DO NOT accept the invitation. Only accept invites from JOBEN.
- HOW DOES THIS WORK
- In a UFC event fight pick your winner, round and method of winning.
- Scoring is as follows: 5 points correct pick, 2 points correct round, 2 points correct method. 11 points if perfect.
IS THIS THING LEGIT? - Maybe. Depends on how you define legit. But yeah it is! Previous winner can confirm this.
HOW ABOUT IF I WIN AN EVENT? WILL I BE PAID?
- Yes. If you win an event, you win $20 which gains you free access to the next season.
WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?
- THIS WILL DEPEND ON HOW MANY PLAYERS WILL JOIN. I've never paid less than $650 to the winner. The top 3 players win a prize.
- You will not under ANY circumstances talk about how to pay in this thread. You WILL email our alcoholic commissioner Joben to discuss any such details. Do NOT talk about payment in the thread or anywhere else on Mania. EMAIL ONLY
You will quickly realize that Phasebook is my right hand man. He covers the fanposts and I couldn't have a successful pool without his help. Tap is the former Freepool commish that now runs the awesome Kountermove Tourney. See him for details, it's great. Stinky runs the brackets that everyone has come to love and is just another reason why we have so much fun with this thing. This is a great way to join the family.
The current season is still hotly contested with many in striking distance. There are still 2 events left and only 50 points separate the 1st and 12th players. That is close compared to past seasons. Anything can happen.

- Jonnyboy will be responsible for recruiting on BE and MMA Fighting. I really believe he will take care of his job and we will not laugh at his efforts.
