Mania Money Pool Season 15 Event 5 Results: UFC Doubleheader Sunday - UFC Fight Night 53 (Story vs Nelson) and UFC Fight Night 54 (Ares vs Saffiedine)

Two events, two continents, two exciting welterweight main events in one night. Expect this to be the trend nowadays as the UFC has already undertaken an expansion strategy that will hopefully increase the global popularity of MMA. But since these are just baby steps so far, what we have are 25 fights with 75% of the fights comprising of fighters we barely know. But hey, let's look at the bright side of this. Ares impressed with a TKO over Tarec and Story derailed the Nelson train with his improved striking. 13 decisions and 10 finishes, not bad for a lot of fights!

The scores were off-the-roof this event but when the smoke cleared, Phasebook emerged as the event winner scoring 173 points, going 18 out of 23 correct picks and 11 perfect picks. I am sure Jonny, Trip and G Smith were not happy.
