That's right Maniacs. I have been publishing this post like 100 times since Sunday and that's always the message. I don't know what to do with it hence the late post.
It might just be the end of a legend folks. Getting submitted in your last two fights just won't cut it for Big Nog. He is one of the greatest to compete in MMA but Father time has been calling him out since that time he put Brendan Schaub on La-La Land. If this is his last fight, thank you Big Nog and you surely should be in the UFC Hall of Fame.
Unambig was having a heyday on the comments section about how this event was just to highlight how good the Brazilians are as they are matched with overmatched opponents. Well, it was a good event that featured a lot of submissions and the return of Thiago Silva's beast mode.
3 people did not pick for this event: bitemyjacket, donkeypunch81 and 777s.
The rose among the thorns Ella showed her picking prowess this event as she top scored the camp scoring 92 points. Not to be outdone and willing to prove that he is not a washout, DetroitDrew came in second (2nd) scoring 83 points. Andrew's pride went high this event as he notched third place scoring 80 points.
In our own money pool camp scores update, Season 8 Champion the Pride has slowly crept up the rankings and is now the top scorer of this camp after five (5) events. AJ Sanabriaman and swiftman are not giving up though as they are still in the mix to show who is the rea; "man" in the camp. To be honest, no one is safe to claim he is winning this season as all the scores until the top 25 still have their chances.
Enough of my big mouth.

- SWEDISH-CHEF, BIGGER LEBOWSKI, BIGGCASTLE, PABLOXL, FREENOW82, MURPH0706, RICKY DOOBY and LETSTALKMMA formed the 15% that picked Big Nog over Vai Cavalho. I don't know man, could be the 2006 fight, could be the distrust on Werdum's chin.
31 PEOPLE ( 58%) picked Leo Santos to beat
Melvin GuillardWilliam Macario. Frankly, I do not know anything about these two but the fact that 22 PEOPLE still picked Macario goes to show you the competitiveness of this fight.
- ONLY 14 PEOPLE (26%) picked Thiago Silva to rudely welcome Feljao to the Octagon. Turned out Feljao may have experienced adrenaline dump as he succumbed to the pressure of Thiago Silva. Here's praying Thiago did not use any steroids.
- SWEDISH-CHEF, BIGGER LEBOWSKI, RGIII, PHINSALLDAY, ROY1 and ELLA formed the 11%that picked Eddie Mendez to beat TUFer Sarafian. Mendez wins the no glove touching or best titts award but does not have anything against the grappling of Sarafian.
- It must be the cool nickname that led to AFROTIKIMAN and DALESDEADBUG to pick Jason High here. I mean how can you not pick the " Kansas City Bandit?" Unfortunately, it was Erick Silva that took away High's elbow come fight time.
- BIGGER LEBOWSKI might be so enamored with Mike here. With only one picking him, Lebowski stood his ground, went ahead and picked the Warrior and lose points in the process.
- SCARNON, DILDON and DALESDEADBUG went against the tide and picked Vaughan Lee against the resurging Assuncao. Bad move as Lee has shown in the past that he is prone to submissions.
- In the HOT BOUT of the evening, it was really dead close. 28 people (52%) Arantes and 26 people (48%) Pepey. It was a chess match in the beginning until Arantes capitalized on a mistake and took home the W.
- LIONHEART livedon for RGIII, TRIPPILCH, SCARNON, FREENOW82 and LETSTALKMMA.Unfortunately for them, 91% of the people in the camp and Braga-Neto teared the heart and the knees of Smitty.
- In another close picking, only 22 people (41%) picked Damm over Hirota who was picked by 32 people ( 59%). Split decision? Home brewing? Be the judge.
- ONLY 13 PEOPLE (24%) picked Vinny's brother to beat the Polish Vemola. The 41 people (76%) were exuberant in the first round and might have gone mad at Vemola not finishing. Caio pulled a slight upset and beat the gassed Polish.
- DETROIT DREW, DEUCE02 and ROLANDANDO must have seen something from Buscape that we have not seen. 94% of the Camp picked Ildemar and the three still stood their grounds. No rewards this time for that risk. Perhaps next time.
