Mania Money Pool Season 10 Event 1 Results: UFC 159 (Bones vs American Gangster)



Too easy. No surprises there. Should Johnny be proud of beating a middleweight who talked his way to this fight? Bones is the best 205er out there and he proved it tonight without breaking a sweat (toe notwithstanding). Bis proved that he only loses to guys on TRT and Roy Nelson, boy, that fatty boom boom has power. Everything delivered on this card-- upsets, technical decisons, eyepokes, nut shots, name it this card delivered -- even a Bruce Buffer boo boo. And you know what? Cody just beat Zombie Garcia via decision. Who expected that?

In our own Money Pool, Season 9 Champion Snake_Pliskan's momentum just got derailed but another newcomer to the camp -- TripPilch won this event and has announced his arrival to the pool ready to have his name etched to the most coveted Scottidog Shrive Award. Another newcomer -- 777 placed second and regular kimuraalloverurface placed third. It's still too early though to pronounce winners to this pool.

By the way, thanks to Joben's efforts this season has the largest number of players in the camp at 80. Only 67 picked but I hope everyone that picked will be able to pay so we will have the largest turnout. Don't be lazy Maniacs.

  • SEPENOOB was the only one who picked Chael against the 65 people that picked Bones. Worse, he lived up to his username and picked a UD for the American gangster.
  • DILDON, SABUDHABISNDWICH, DLOCC, AUSSIE, and GOLDMOUTH picked Cheick Kongo. Unfortunately, having an Adonis physique doesn't translate to victory especially if your chin cannot hold up against power strikers.
  • SCARNON, MRBRUTALITY, FREENOW82, GURTHEE, WISETOAD, BIGGCASTLE, and WYLDEMAN99 picked Vinny counting on the fact that Vinny will either KO or sub Davis who isn't so wonderful with the law and his girlfriend nowadays.
  • DONNMCSLICK, 209STK, THATSTANKY, DRPOTATO623, and JORGEHERNANDEZ3 went against the majority and picked Bam Bam to win against Jimmy Miller. NOD made a good point that Healy might have been KOed in the last 5 seconds of the 1st round, rewatch it guys.Nevertheless Healy impressed in his debut sans the controversy.
  • 52 people (78%) picked Bis to be more talented than Belcher. As I have said, Bis only loses to guys on TRT and he schooled Allan Belcher last night. Heck, he even pulledout a page out of Jake Shields. Oops. I do hope Belcher is okay.
  • SEPENOOB, PABLOXL, THATSTANKY and SHIVAN TIGER picked Yancy and he disappointed them after injuring his thumb.
  • 55 people (85%) picked OSP to win against the wrestling of Villante. All I know is this event is mired by the eye poke and the result might be controversial.
  • DOCTORMMA must have thought that by picking Sheila, he is bringing to life the memories of his love for Adolf Hitler. Whatever his reason is, we are interested as he is the ONLY ONE to pick the German.
  • Oh My God, Cody McKenzie won not by a guillotine choke! God, what a disappointment Lenard Garcia is in this fight. Did he even train for Cody? DALESDEADBUG, 209KING, SCARNON, ROY1, THATSTANKY, OILCHECK, 777 and TRIPPILCH would be more than happy to take those points for Cody.
  • 44 people (68%) picked the Pit Fighter Siler against the Strikeforce import. Boy, this fight was a barn burner and was only decided in the 3rd round. This is one of those fights that you would want someone new to MMA should watch.
  • 39 people (60%) picked Belford to avoid the lightning subs of Brian Caraway. This is on Belford here. He is fighting a guy who had less than 1 week to train and prepare for him and Belford succumbed to the familiarity of being subbed.
