‘Overeem vs. Werdum’ Fight-Picking Contest: And the Winner Is…

(Book cover via Victory Belt)

Out of nearly 100 entries in last week’s fight-picking contest, only one reader had the foresight to suggest that Alistair Overeem would dominate Fabricio Werdum but not finish him. That man was Potato Nation Hall of Famer Viva Hate. His predictions were:

- Alistair Overeem def. Fabricio Werdum by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27 — two scores correct)
- Josh Barnett def. Brett Rogers by TKO, 2:58 of round 2 (winner/round correct)

VH, please send your current address to and we’ll send you a copy of Anderson Silva‘s MMA Instruction Manual: The Muay Thai Clinch, Takedowns, Takedown Defense, and Ground Fighting.

Honorable mention goes out to…

…”steveno_3,” who specifically predicted that Barnett would win by arm-triangle choke in the second round. (Like many others, he also predicted that Overeem would smash Werdum in round 1.) Steveno, e-mail with your address and shirt size, and we’ll get a CagePotato t-shirt to you for your troubles. Thanks to everybody who played; come back Thursday to flex your pickin’ abilities for Marquardt vs. Story.

Nice job, Viva! And your coworkers should just get used to your Monday routine.

I think I am scaring my co workers as I run around the office making fire engine noises, maybe it is because I am also waving my shirt over my head, maybe it is the fact that I am cursing like a truck driver, maybe it because it is my second week. Oh well I guess, thanks CP!
