Mania Free Pool Results (UFC FN53 and UFC FN54)


What's up Maniacs. We are back with another Free Pool results post. This past weekend we had another double header from the UFC with UFC FN 53 Story vs Nelson and UFC FN54 MacDonald vs Saffiedine. We had some sick finishes on these cards.

The day started off with the Sweden card and with two awesome ko's right away, followed by a few decisions but not all were boring especially when Siver and Rosa put on a hell of a fight. Then when the main card started we had ourselves 3 first round ko's in a row including two of the favorites falling in Blackstrom and Latiffi. It was great seeing Corassani get fucking destroyed the way he did. Honestly I wish the ref would have let Holloway keep landing for about 10 more seconds cause fuck Corassani. Also one of Europe's rising stars in Nelson got the shit beat out of him for almost all 5 rounds. I mean I thought it could happen but I believed all the hype. Story looked great in the fight and he puts himself in a spot for some great fights.

Our second card of the day this time in Canada also started off with two first round finishes a sub and ko. Followed by two decisions. The Holohan and Kelades fight was pretty exciting but I can't say the same for the next one as Saggo was trying his hardest to hug and cuddle. I don't ever want to see that guy fight again he was fucking terrible but at least Felder got the win. Gagnon got a quick sub and all of the TUF guys from Canada picked up wins. The main event was pretty awesome. Rory finally got another finish when he ktfo of Saffiedine in the third putting himself in line for a shot at the title.

Alright guys enough of my recap (please Unambig come back with the recaps!) and on to the results.

Alright guys we have a nice little break until the next event, 3 weeks until UFC 179 Aldo vs Mendes 2. Since we have a nice break I encourage you basterds to do some research and make this next event super competitive. Aldo vs Mendes 2 is on October 25th so do your best to get ALL of your picks in. It is not the most stacked card so if any of you guys watched the Invicta card a few weeks back and got one of those codes for 10 percent off because of the streaming fail I would use it on this event. I am anyway. Ok guys that is it for me tonight. Good luck on the next event.

Sorry about the huge ass poster this time lol.
