(Don’t worry, it’s not all words. There are even some pictures!)
The good news in the Affliction Pick-em Contest is that a few of you even managed to follow instructions, both by counting up your own scores and by not editing your posts after the deadline and disqualifying your own dumb ass. Kudos for that.
The bad news is that plenty of you failed to realize when tallying your scores that a) we scratched the Lauzon/Green fight, which you would have known if you actually read this site, so no one got any points for that, and b) Josh Barnett’s victory was officially ruled a submission, not a TKO. That’s what happens when someone taps to strikes. That, and they get called a bitch by B.J. Penn.
If you’re curious how we scored in this one, I beat Goldstein for the second straight event, this time by a comfortable 16-11 score. Despite this magnificent triumph, I still fell short of our winner (though I would have gotten closer if “Baby Fedor” could have lasted another forty-two seconds in order to lose by decision. Freaking ringside doctors think they’re so smart).
But you don’t care about us. You just want to know who won the autographed copy of L. Jon Wertheim’s Blood in the Cage, right?
With 19 points, our big winner this time is GanghisCON. Congrats, buddy. You’re not the Genghis Con, are you? Naw, he’d probably know how to spell his own internet moniker.
Coming in second, third, and fourth, and receiving for their trouble a non-autographed, but still totally free copy of the book are (in order of awesomeness):
