MMA FightPicker Recap: Nurse Your UFC 113 Wounds and Prepare for ‘Heavy Artillery’


(Heavyweights and generic metal-riffs, baby. If this doesn’t get you amped up, then YOU’RE A PUSSY! YEAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!! Props: shosports)

Though he made a valiant effort in his FightPicker Head-to-Head debut — correctly predicting that Shogun would win by stoppage, Joe Doerksen would score an upset over Tom Lawlor, and Sam Stout would pick up another Fight of the Night bonus — Mike Russell’s excessive love of his Canadian countrymen (and Paul Daley for some reason) proved to be his undoing, as he was edged out by BG, 8-6. Not that getting eight out 13 pool-questions right is anything to brag about. (Aaron Rampey is LOL’ing at our sorry asses right now.) But hey, it was a tough card to predict, with some very surprising outcomes. Did any of you run the table and get every question right?

If you came out ahead this week, why not take your PotatoChip surplus and go extra-big for the current pools, which focus on Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery. Featuring the heavyweight championship fight between Alistair Overeem and Brett Rogers, the event goes down this Saturday at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, and will be broadcast live on Showtime starting at 9 p.m. ET. We’ve also included a few questions related to Shine III: Worlds Collide, which is headlined by former boxing champ Ricardo Mayorga taking on Din Thomas. Check out the questions after the jump and pick well, my friends


– Alistair Overeem vs. Brett Rogers @ Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery — Who will win?

– Will Overeem vs. Rogers end in a KO/TKO before round 3?

Andrei Arlovski vs. Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva: Who will win?

– Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza vs. Joey Villasenor: Who will win?

– Roger Gracie vs. Kevin Randleman: Who will win?

– Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante vs. Antwain Britt: Who will win?

– Vitor "Shaolin" Riberio vs. Lyle "Fancy Pants" Beerbohm: Who will win?

– Of the fights listed above, how many stoppages: 0-4 or 5-6?

– Ricardo Mayorga vs. Din Thomas @ Shine III: Worlds Collide — Who will win?

– Murilo "Ninja" Rua vs. Travis Galbraith: Who will win?

Nick Thompson vs. Eduardo Pamplona: Who will win?

– Braulio Estima vs. Rick Hawn: Who will win?

Dammit... new... job... can't... post... at... work... yet. Gotta figure out what's what first... sux, I get into all the shit when everyone's goin' to bed now... lame!

Okay. I just gotta say becuz it doesnt happen very often...
But Aaron Rampey was in both the pools I was in, and I bet him in both!!
Ha! Suck it! LoL
One of them I got first with 210 points and Mr. Rampey came in a distant second with 180.... Not trying to brag or anything(yes I am).
The other I think I got 5th, but it was okay cuz my name was still above Rampeys.
So even if I lose, as long as I beat the man at fightpicker I am happy!

@Rex,
Hiring guest contributors? Hmmmmm sounds like someone is hinting. Well, I am starting a facebook group/petition to get you hired, if it can work for Betty White it can work for you.

Everyone sign up and support -facebook.com/get_this_potential_sociopath_hired

I know you guys know that ads are an important source of revenue for our boys Ben&Mike. Why, if they made enough dough, they could probably afford to hire some of us as bodyguards/gophers/body doubles/guest contributors...there's just no telling what could happen. So c'mon, click a link every now and then. Not just when you're drunk after the last PPV and you're wondering what happened to your last pair of good pants.

We're all in this together, fellas. (And ladies. I know we have at least one here now.)

I think I've clicked the link with that fake survival show guy on it about 45 times.

@Almost North

I think I can guarantee you some quick and violent fights on this one. Grab yer girl, grab yer pole, let's take a little trip to the ol' fishin' hole.... rrroll em'!

Could somebody explain to my semi-down syndrome ass how this Fightpicker shit works? I killed it on the last one but apparently posting your picks in the comments is not the way to validate your success.
Almost North- May 10, 2010 at 12:48 pm
^ get adblock plus for firefox if you can....I've never even seen/heard any of the ads but I still accidentally click the black spaces where they used to be and get redirected to some stupid stupid sites.

Oh and FUCK TALKING WEB BANNERS

Fuck you CP for having that Cuervo Games autoplay vid on the side of every page. That annoying pile of excrement has played about 50 times (loud as fuck) in my office recently. If you're not making good money on it you can all fuck yourselves in the earhole.

That fake music is incredibly familiar...
Almost North- May 10, 2010 at 12:21 pm
Oh and everyone in my pool please vote highest percentage like you always do, I want to win another one.
El Guapo- May 10, 2010 at 12:17 pm
Will Mayorga get his arm broken or get put to sleep??

Mumbles is getting most of the boxer-crossing-over pub(thank his hype/yes men.."Yeeeah-Yeeeah"), but El Matador is a couple screws loose his damn self. He was always more of a streetfighter than a boxer and one of the toughest in the game. Throw in his penchant for eating chicken wings at the weigh in and smoking cigs in the ring and all I gotta say is... Who's got the stream?!?
ReX13- May 10, 2010 at 12:15 pm
Rampey won't even talk to us anymore. Which is sad, cause that fool OWNED this week; he obviously knows what he's talking about.
Strife- May 10, 2010 at 12:11 pm
After all the fun I made about strikeforce and their waste of a heavyweight champion. Overeem is finally gonna fight, about F***ING TIME!!!!!
Almost North- May 10, 2010 at 12:10 pm
So my lady friend is starting to get into watching MMA, should I even bother showing her this event?

I think had she seen the last strikeforce card it might well have been the end of any interest in the sport.
overeems_needle- May 10, 2010 at 12:09 pm
Looks like im gonna see some action on May 15th!!!
Sagat and Son- May 10, 2010 at 12:09 pm
Hopefully Grim takes the belt from Overeem, and Arloski gets his career back on track with a KO of Antonio "My chin makes Jay Leno's look undeveloped in comparison" Silva.
