Well, it’s over. We’ve gone through the entries and found who we believe to be the winners of The Great Cage Potato UFC 93 Pick-em Contest, although there’s a very good chance we screwed up the math, so check your own scores just to be sure. There were a lot of solid efforts. Plenty of 15’s and 16’s, and even one 2 (Perennial). Come on, man. You’re better than that. Same goes for those of you who forgot to add tie-breakers. It even cost some of you dearly. What a shame.
There were two people to hit 20 and 21 points (Tharris6 and Criminally Negligent, respectively), although forum records show you two edited your posts after the entry deadline. Now, maybe you were really just adding the fastest-finish tiebreaker, as you claim. But unless you can prove that (and if you want to make your case, we’re listening, so drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org), you two gents are disqualified. Sorry.
But speaking of that fastest-finish tiebreaker, that’s what it came down to. Msinon and M7cky both scored 19 points. But Msinon edged out M7cky by 34 seconds to claim first place. Congrats, Msinon. Those Round 5 figures will look great in that MMA diorama you’re working on.
Runners-up are after the jump. If you didn’t win, don’t despair. We’ll be running another contest this week for Affliction: DoR, with all new prizes up for grabs. Check back tomorrow for details.
These three blokes all get Hall of Fame t-shirts, so drop us a line and give us your address and shirt size.
Congratulations. We here at the Potato salute you. Everyone else, we wouldn’t be so disappointed in you except that we know you can do better.
