  1. Pride 33 Picks Contest!


    Get your picks in by Saturday at 9pm. The rules have been tweaked slightly. Pick all fights and pick method for all fights. 2 points per correct pick and 1 point for each correct method pick. In addition, for the main event pick a stoppage time, this is for the tie-breaker if necessary. Example would be RD2 4:05, which to clear any confusion means 5:55 sec into the fight. Method is either KO, Submission, or Decision. Reps are due from all the losers to the winner.

    Hmmm, I can't remember is that what Fedor/Coleman II was? 3 5 minute rounds? I think you're correct.

    I believe he is fighting, but they have not found a replacement for Nak yet so I decided to leave Wiuff's fight out of the mix. I added that up top once I edited my post.

    I'm thinking another KO festival. I'll probably go with KO's straight down the line.

    But this is a title fight and Fedor/Coleman was non-title.

    Oh really, I thought that was a title fight for some reason. Honestly, I don't know what 2+2 is right now. I'm gonna go and try and figure out if the main event is 5x5 or what.

  12. Good point, Rodja. Sherdoggers are saying 5 5-minute rounds according to NSAC rules.

  13. Wandy via decision
    Mauricio Rua via TKO
    Nick Diaz via decision
    Hayato Sakurai via TKO
    Frank Trigg via decision
    Rogerio Nog via submission
    Joachim Hansen via TKO
    Sergei Kharitonov via TKO

  14. Thanks fellas, for getting the time on the main event squared away.

  15. Wandy-KO RD2 2:00min
    Rua-KO
    Gomi-KO
    Sakurai-KO
    Misaki-Dec
    Nog-Sub
    Hansen-KO
    Kharitonov-KO

    I *****ed out on my all KO policy.

  16. I have until Saturday @ 9pm to edit, right? I'm torn on Diaz. I think he could do it either by decision or submission.

    Yep, 9pm saturday is the deadline. Gomi/Diaz is tough to pick, anything could happen in that fight, although a Gomi sub is not likely.

  18. If you go with sub, everyone will know you just copied my pick.
    Again, Gomi does'nt have his belt on the line, WTF is with Pride?

    If the Hendo_Silva fight had a ten minute round, I'd go with TKO for Wandy, the shorter round(s) should help Hendo survive for a decision loss.

    The latest Sherdog scuttlebutt is that Gomi is going to pull out and be replaced by Josh Neer, just Sherdog talk, as of now.

    And Hendo thinks Wandy is a Steroid Superman.

  19. Rogue, if you'd like to win I recommend waiting til the last minute and copying my picks and then doing a price is right style 1 sec over or under on my main event time. For the record, if anyone does anything like that they will pay dearly.

  20. I agree with the last second sniper strategy, I use software that does that to win Ebay auctions, but I don't think you'll be the person I'll copy,

    If I "faded" your picks, did the opposite, that might work well.

    I'll stick with what I wrote, they were copied from an analyst's piece anyway, there's a bunch of fighters here I don't know anything about.

    UFC 68 will be all me, as I fail miserably, aka "Savaging" it.

  21. I may start "fading" my own picks, is that even possible? I'm actually liking your picks, but I think the 25 minute main event may end up costing you, mind games.

    I'm wondering if we should do some mild recruiting for this picks contest. I may recruit a few people as the event nears.

  22. Who do you have in mind, Alex? who's into MMA around here that does'nt currently play the picks?

    SS, you should recruit some of the regulars at the M & M MMA subforum to play here, where the fight Brainiacs are at.

    I'm gonna recruit my cat, Smitty, he has a nose for talent, when he's not screaming at me to give him a belly rub and a pile of treats, spoiled rotten little bastard.

    I'll do that. But y'all gotta' start coming around there more often, too.

    Not necessarily the MMA forum, but the whole shindig.

    And if I may say so, the Inner Circle is tiiiiight. I love it- access to the industry's biggest ballers.

    There's a couple guys that post once or twice a month that could be interested. Maybe some of Mullett's boys aka snugglers.

    I too have a cat that owns me. She will sqwuak at me until I feed her or pet her. She also wants to be fed every 20 minutes, and I feel bad cause she's getting older and I know it can't be good for her health to be eating so much, but she will f*ck me up if I don't feed her.

  26. BTW, M & M might start having relatively more MMA focus than it does now if I have my way. There's talk of bringing in members of a well-known MMA family for different things, etc.

    I have very little to do with M & M because AL operates completely independently from M & M now (even though they are both under the same corp) but I'm discussing some interesting things with other companies and people that could happen in the not to distant future.

    They may be available, but are frowned upon.

    I'll make my way over their asap. Looking forward to chatting with the MMA brainiacs, as Rogue says.

  29. Why are people picking Diaz over Gomi? Nick has a bad attitude and he'll try to stand with Gomi and it's going to cost him.

    So is anyone else going to be at the actual event?

  30. Have you ever been there, Alex? It's a great place. A nice variety is there.

    If you want to shoot the sh*t and goof around, you can do that. And of course, if you want hardcore science on just about any subject but especially supplements, physiology, etc., the place is legendary for that.
