Silva 3rd round TKO,...ref stoppage.

Fitch 3 round decision via lay and pray, Lots of blood and bumps on Fitch's face.

Rafael dos Anjos over Guida, look for this to be a barn burner....all 3 rounds.

Almeida, KTFO Hughs, Matt Huggies is done, Don't you have a crop to bring in
anyways?

Junior dos Santos puts an end to Roy's lucky string of wins, much to Dana's delight.....Ko 2nd round.

Hazelette by Sub 2nd round.

Davis wins by TKO, Wallace has lost his last two fights and everything comes in three's.

Todd Brown KO's Boetsch by headkick.....I'm really going out on a limb here.

Brenneman, Morecraft, & Hallman all win.

As much as I`d like to see someone beat the fuck out of Anderson ,I don`t think Chael is the man for the job,I hope his triangle defence is much improved otherwise ,good night Irene [see you in my dreams] although if he cops a knee on the way in like he did gainst Nate ooh dear ,be waiting a couple days to "pass" the teeth he looses.Btw you peeps know most dentists in Oz are members of the Masonic order.Calling all conspiricy theorists.
keep on rockin in the free world

Glad they put this up 'cause it reminded me to check my last Fightpicker, which was still frozen/busted as of yesterday. And sure enough, first place!! I'd like to thank a few people. First, The Fireball Kid for K'ing his opponent TFO. Also, to those 29 other brave souls who entered the pool. And lastly to my sponsor, CP, for making this all possible. Thank You.
