MMA FightPicker Heads-Up: Make Your Picks for ‘Jones vs. Matyushenko’!


(John Howard: You’d be a fool to pick against hair like that.)

Watching MMA is a lot more exciting when you have something riding on the outcome. And while you may not be bold enough to throw actual money on all those tasty underdogs, you can still play along during Sunday’s UFC Live: Jones vs. Matyushenko broadcast (Versus, 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT) by casting your predictions in an MMA FightPicker pool. The game consists of 13 questions this week, covering all the marquee matchups as well as some specific questions on how the fights will play out. (Will there be a takedown within the first two minutes of the main event? Will James Irvin see the second round for the first time since 2006?) Check ‘em out after the jump, join FightPicker if you haven’t already, and feel free to share your predictions in the comments section.

My answers to the questions above:
1) Jon Jones winner
2) No take-down in the first 2 mins
3) Will Jones vs. Matyushenko end via KO/TKO before round 3?...Yes.
4) Mark Munoz, winner if he keeps his hands up.
5) John Howard vs. Jake Ellenberger: Who will win? Jake,....John Howard is the Prime Minister of Australia, and has no business being in an MMA fight....at 70 he"s too old.
6)Tyson Griffin vs. Takanori Gomi: Who will win?...Gomi wins but not that convincingly,...look for a decision.
7) See above.
8) Paul Kelly will beat Volkmann, provided he gets his passport in order and actually makes it to the fight.
9) James Irvin vs. Igor Pokrajac: Who will win? Irvin wins,...basing my decision on the fact that Irvin "has to win this.".....or go fight for Shark Fights.
10) Irvin KO's Pokrajac.
11)Brian Stann vs. Mike Massenzio: Who will win? Mike Massenzio wins by Submission.
12) More KO's/TKO's as per usual.

The term "custodial engineer" always gives me a craving for some abba zaba.

Gomi by decision, you heard it here first
Ballkick- July 29, 2010 at 2:56 pm
@2DaDeath

FYI......The PC moniker for that position is Custodial Engineer.
I was flabbergasted as well......I thought Bones was a trash talking Body Opponent Bag (lovingly referred to as "BOB") for Josh Koscheck to practice his shit talking yo' Mamma jokes on........go figure!

@ cecils_pupils

Anything is better than his current plan of having to fight Jon Jones when he should be writing angry letters to the local paper bemoaning the fact that the onion belt has gone out of style.



@2DaDeath

Okay, that was some funny shit. +1

Bones is gonna mop the floor with the Ja... Naaaa, too cheesy.

WAR Bones! Sugar Shad next up for the interim title. Sit out the year my ass.

No the black guy is the narc. Get your facts straight.
2DaDeath- July 29, 2010 at 1:14 pm
So the black guy isn't the janitor? Really???
cecils_pupils- July 29, 2010 at 12:56 pm
All that Old Man strength and janitorial duties will get you these days is a poorly funded pension plan and some free cleaning products.

LMAO

I know better than to do it, I just read the article before this one, hit the back button, and WA-LA, there was a freshly posted article. One and done. Now that I have checked that off my life accomplishments, (X) "Be the first to post "FIRST" on CP" I can move on to the bigger life goals, like jerking off a sea cucumber on camera.
LesnarsIntestine- July 29, 2010 at 12:34 pm
Yeah.. old man strength is like retard strength only you have to earn it.
El Famous Burrito- July 29, 2010 at 12:26 pm
CLOZER the CLOZERIAN... good evening. As a duly designated representative of CagePotato, I order you to cease any and all first-claiming activity and return forthwith to your place of origin or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.


I'm picking Bones in most pools, and Vlad for the upset in at least one.

He has old man strength, plus he's a janitor.
CLOZER- July 29, 2010 at 12:05 pm
FIRST BITCHES!!!! HA HA
CLOZER- July 29, 2010 at 12:05 pm
I had to do it. Sorry.

I have Jones, Munoz, Howard, Griffin, Kelly, Irvin, Johnson, Stann
