Cage Potato’s Affliction: Day of Reckoning Pick-em Contest

(Fedor’s greatest enemy: nothingness)

We were so pleased with how many of you participated in our UFC 93 Pick-em Contest – despite the fact that most of you tasted bitter, humiliating defeat – that we’ve decided to run it back this weekend for “Affliction: Day of Reckoning.” 

Once again you get your chance to predict the results and win a prize, and once again you have to get your picks in to this forum thread by Saturday (1/24) at noon EST, or else you’re dead to us (for the purposes of this contest anyway).

But we learned a thing or two about how to do these bad boys after last time, so pay attention to our guidelines:

1) Just as before, pick the winner, method, and round in each scheduled fight.  One point for each, and you can only get points for method and round if you get the correct winner.  And yes, if you pick someone to win by decision and they win by TKO or submission in the third round, you still get a point for getting the round right.

2) Don’t forget to answer the tie-breaker!!!!  You don’t even have to say which fight you think will end fastest, just put down a time and the closest without going over wins.  It’s that simple, and yet so many of you managed to screw it up last time.  If you go back and edit your post, for any reason, after the noon EST deadline on Saturday, you’ll be disqualified.  So just do it right the first time, and don’t wait until the last minute to finish your entry.  This isn’t the freaking SAT’s, you know.

3) When the event is over, come on back to the forum thread and tally your own damn score.  Not that we didn’t enjoy wasting our time counting all five of your points, Smartbloke (ironic choice of username, no?), but if we’re going to be running these things regularly we’re going to need some help.  Just let us know in the forums if you think you have one of the high scores, and we’ll verify the winners.

4) Speaking of winners, what do they get this time around?  Glad you asked, Chachi.  

The first-place winner will receive an autographed copy of L. Jon Wertheim’s Blood in the Cage, also known as the best book about MMA in existence.  

Top three runners up receive non-autographed, but still undeniably awesome copies of the book.  

Consider this contest your shot at feeding both your ego and your mind.  But first you have to win.  Good luck, and God’s speed.

Its funny that Fedor doesn't look his opponent in the eye in many staredowns. He looks down at the ground, like he feels bad for what is about to happen. I feel sorry for the other guy too. They should just let Fedor fight 2 guys at once to make it fair.

Anyone having trouble getting their new account verified? I signed up last week and still haven't received my confirmation email to activate my forum account.

Seriously, don't forget to put the tie-breaker like I moronically did last time and definitely don't try to edit your posts. I was benevolently forgiven but I was assured that the next guy to do it gets snapped like Corey Hill's leg.

Ryan, after you signed up and verified your account....................

When you go to a thread, and want to reply to a thread, you need to click the "quick reply" button on the bottom of any one elses post. If you want to quote them, click "quote", but to just reply to the thread, for some reason, I haven't seem it like that anywhere. you have to activate th equick reply box by hitting that button.
