MMAHQ.com/UFC 134 Fight-Picking Contest: And the Winner Is…


(Props: MMAHQ)

We were pleased to see that over 100 of you conquered our captcha system and submitted entries in last week’s UFC 134 fight-picking contest with MMAHQ.com. In retrospect, I guess it wasn’t that hard to figure out that both Anderson Silva and Mauricio Rua would win by knockout. But most of you thought Silva would finish Okami faster than Shogun would finish Griffin, which wasn’t the case. The closest picks were made by Potato Nation rookie “hroobarb,” who put it down like this:

- Anderson Silva def. Yushin Okami via KO, 2:00 of round 2 (four seconds off actual time of stoppage)
- Mauricio Rua def. Forrest Griffin via TKO 3:34 of round 1 (1:41 off actual time of stoppage)

hroobarb, please send your real name and current address to contest@cagepotato.com and we’ll send you those Everlast Pro Competition MMA Gloves ASAP. Thanks to everybody who played, and please visit MMAHQ.com for daily deals on MMA gear and apparel!

The Okami/Anderson mysticism you used to culminate on round 2 seemed to worked work fine on Saturday. As for the Rua/Griffin....you called that on the money.

Congratulations.

Out of curiosity did you (or anyone) bet some hard cash, and what was the return based in your wager?

If anyone is interested in why i picked the way i did:

I figured Okami's wrestling would save him from being knocked out early, so i put in round two instead. As for Rua/Griffin, i figured that Forrest would get overwhelmed by the aggressive and faster striking of Rua, much like was by Anderson.

Look Todd, if we were to rape one of our commenters tonight, it wouldn't be hroobarb. It would be XENOPHON, obviously.
