The Lyoto Machida “Karate for MMA” Pick-Off Contest: Round 2

With MMA Madness reporting that Frank Lester vs. Nick Osipczak will be added to the TUF 9 finale, and the Grant/Markham scrap taken off the card, we have a pretty solid idea of what Saturday’s show will look like, barring any last-minute surprises. Here’s the lineup:

Diego Sanchez vs. Clay Guida (LW)
DaMarques Johnson vs. James Wilks (TUF 9 welterweight finals)
Ross Pearson vs. Andre Winner (TUF 9 lightweight finals)
Joe Stevenson vs. Nate Diaz (LW)
Chris Lytle vs. Kevin Burns (WW)

Melvin Guillard vs. Gleison Tibau (LW)
Mike Ciesnolevicz vs. Tomasz Drwal (LHW)
Brad Blackburn vs. Edgar Garcia (WW)
Cameron Dollar vs. Jason Dent (LW)
Frank Lester vs. Nick Osipczak (WW)

So if you participated in round 1 of our pick-off contest and you still want the Lyoto Machida "Karate for Mixed Martial Arts" DVD set, read on…

Enter your picks in this forum thread by noon PT on Saturday, and be sure to include a quickest-finish prediction in case we have a tie-breaker. For a refresher on how you should format your picks and tally your score, go here. Please don’t edit your picks after you’ve made them, or you’ll be disqualified. Correctly predicting a decision victory earns you three points, not two.

You are responsible for counting up your total point score from UFC 99 and the TUF 9 finale. The picker with the highest combined score wins the DVD set. If you did well, come back Monday and let us know your score so we can verify the winner. If you have any questions, fire away in the comments section below. Good luck!

ALSO: If any other fights are added to the card between now and Saturday’s show, please disregard them for the purposes of this contest. Only submit predictions for the ten fights listed above.

Fuck, i knew I should have made picks for 99. What a jip.

Yeah, Shotzy. Matt Brown was a good find on the Rampage/Forrest season. He's been consistent and staying busy. Seems like he's fought more times than Dollaway and Sadollah put together.

 @ Judo:You'll get another chance for UFC 100. Stay tuned.

No shit, but on most previous TUF finales, most of the card was cast members. Look at the TUF 8 finale, 8 of the 10 fights were cast members... this time only 4 of the 10 fights are cast members, and that's including the two finals matches.

can we get anything if we didn't post picks for UFC 99? ...??? no .. damnit ok ....

agentsmith, this always happens in the ultimate finale. Dana always brings back a few fighters from the show that lost.
agentsmith- June 18, 2009 at 9:01 am
Haha, notice how few of this season's cast got invited back for a fight on the finale? Could it be because most of them just plain suck?

I normally enter these things but this one seems like too much trouble. Next time Bens, you guys do the work...KTHNXBIA!
Tall White and Working- June 18, 2009 at 8:00 am
Oh Bens now you did it. As much as you tried not to spoil last nights episode in the recap, you went ahead and spoiled it anyways. I think it's funny, but do you realize the backlash of anger and hatred these small and pathetic men will wage upon you now that you've robbed them of suspense and surprise? May the Lord have mercy on your comment section.
