To quickly sum up last week’s MMA FightPicker action: Manny Pacquiao won by decision but wasn’t able to put Joshua Clottey on the canvas, King of the Cage: Uprising II late replacement Gavin Neil choked out Charlie Zak to become the new KOTC Canadian lightweight champ, some stuff went down at Sportfight 27, and Aaron Rampey is still your father. Ladies and gentlemen, FightPicker’s current top 5:
Our sincere thanks to those hardcore FightPickers who kept playing even when the week’s only action was regional cards and boxing. Now it’s time for the rest of you to get back in the game. There are five (or possibly six) major MMA events going down in the next five weeks, beginning with UFC Live: Vera vs. Jones this Sunday on Versus. And to sweeten the pot this week, MMAWarehouse.com has hooked us up with gear packages featuring Hayabusa fight gloves, TapouT mouthguards, Sprawl Fusion-S fight shorts, and Manto rash guards. Total street value of each package: About $200.
To win one of these kickass kits, head over to MMA FightPicker and choose one of the prize pools at the top. For just 250 chips, you can enter the "Unlimited" pool — but your odds of winning decrease with every entry. If you’re a high-roller, you’ll want to join the "10" pool, which will be capped at every 10 players. The buy-in is a stiff 1,200 PotatoChips, but remember, you can always buy some chips if you need to. Sound good? Thanks to MMA Warehouse for hooking this up, and if you have any questions, please let your voice be heard in the comments section. Questions for this week are after the jump…
