MMA FightPicker Update: UFC 115 Pools Open for Two Weeks

(Liddell vs. Franklin hype reel, courtesy of 13berhanus.)

We don’t want you guys to panic or anything, but this coming weekend is utterly dead in terms of mixed martial arts competition. Seriously, even Bellator is taking a bye week. So, instead of wasting your time by asking you to enter MMA FightPicker pools for Triumph Fighter, Inferno!, we’re just going to have a two-week entry period for UFC 115 (June 12th, Vancouver). The question list for "Liddell vs. Franklin" is after the jump — study hard, make your predictions, and make us proud. No, you’ll never catch up with the Aaron Rampeys and surf_finlands of the world, but hey, if you’re doing it for the glory, you’re doing it for the wrong reasons.

As for UFC 114‘s pools, the less said about them the better. Mike Russow, John Hathaway, and Dong Hyun Kim pretty much shot my picks to shit. Men make parlay bets, and God laughs…

Chuck Liddell vs. Rich Franklin at UFC 115: Who will win?

– How will Liddell vs. Franklin end: Stoppage or decision?

– Mirko Cro Cop vs. Pat Barry: Who will win?

– Will Cro Cop vs. Barry contain any knockdowns via kicks?

Paulo Thiago vs. Martin Kampmann: Who will win?

Ben Rothwell vs. Gilbert Yvel: Who will win?

Carlos Condit vs. Rory MacDonald: Who will win?

Remember when Rich Franklin was just too strong and technical to take the belt from? I do but it's a little fuzzy cuz it was a long time ago. I like Rich but his pitty pat striking and slowing defense is extremely unlikely to make it to the end of round 3. The only question I have is whether Liddel really truly got back into fighting shape after his time off and time . . . aging.

If I was Nate Quarry I`d be looking for royalty payments .Fuck me , the number of times I`ve seen him ktfo its not even funny anymore .Every promo for Richie features poor ole Nate takin` a nap. Only decent punch Rich has ever thrown? Farq.
Anyways I`ve got Rich takin this on points.
PS greetings from Oz.

Permashiner...haha... he's so old those things don't even heal anymore.

how many times did they show the nate quarry KO? I stopped counting at 4, or did i doze off?

tired of sitting, awkwardly waiting for something exciting to happen.

Looking forward to Cro Cop v Barry and Thiago v Kampmann, two good matchups right thur. The main event? Not so much, but I guess two ageing former champs are better fighting each other than getting stomped by young bloods, more competitive.
justscrappin- June 1, 2010 at 8:32 am
Yeah...other then wanting to see if Barry or Mirko can hopefully break one another's femurs, I would like to see Dunham vs. Griffin...or at least I did until I found out they are good friends and training partners. The rest of the card is the sexual equivalent of Whoopi Goldberg banging Ben Goldstein. Love you BG!

Word up. Go Korea. (but only the Korea we like, you know the one)


Actually I'd be hard pressed to find a contender on this entire card. Going to watch anyway cause I'm a ho for any MMA event and some of these fights are bound to actually finish.
HotPotato- June 1, 2010 at 8:02 am
I might get flamed for this but I think the UFC115 card is weak. And come on, two old guys who aren't even contenders in the main event? Yawn.
Viva Hate- June 1, 2010 at 8:00 am
Woohoo! Two weeks for me to make the wrong decisions! Thank you CP.

Also, by popular request we have a new name over at FB join up Potato Nation Army- Special Ops.

Come wear the CP Army uniform with pride.
