TUF 9 Finale Pick-Off: Our Turn


(Hey buddy, if it gets tough in there just remind that limey about how we saved their asses in WW II.  Works every time.)

After one of us floundered and one of us totally fucking ruled with our UFC 99 picks, we’re giving it another shot for tomorrow night’s “Ultimate Fighter” 9 Finale, just to make sure last week wasn’t some fluke.  Obviously, we’re ineligible to win Lyoto Machida’s “Karate for MMA” DVD set, which explains why our footsweeps haven’t been coming along like we’d hoped, but you can still get your picks in to our forums for round two of the first phase of this contest.  

In the meantime, take a glance at how we see it going down.  And while we’re on the subject of fight predictions, one of us is now all alone in first place atop at the CBS Sports Head-to-Head panel of MMA writers.  So take that, high school guidance counselor who advised me to “marry well.”

Jason Dent def. Cameron Dollar via submission, R2

Well, looks like this Ben vs. Ben pick-off is going to be decided by the slimmest of margins.  Dammit.  There’s nothing we hate more than mostly agreeing with each other.

fuck Belgium....AND Luxembourg. Bunch of chocolate selling queers. And you, Montecarlo, you think youre some badass quasi city-state??? I could run around Montenegro in like two hours. Monaco's mom is a whore. All these countries could fit in the county I live in.

And fuck you anti-xenophobic pussies. Our nationalism will win out. /S

Who cares where a fighter is from, if they suck, they suck.


Don't brag on Wolfslair buddy, it is a gym of 1 diminsional fighters who will never hold belts in anything but local promotions. Kongo just got tooled the same way he always does (and I picked him, foolish me). Rampage is going to lose to Rashad, likely by getting outwrestled, and Bisping...................... lol, I am sad for that kid having to fight Hendo.
Bulldog- June 20, 2009 at 7:36 am
Nick Osipczak was the hungriest brit on the show, I became an instant fan after his WAR.

'kids got talent and a shit load of heart.

Even though he lost, I knew it wouldn't be the last time we see him.

Sometimes I swear I'm ashamed to be American, so many xenophobic retards comment here. It's pretty embarassing.
USA! USA! USA! Woo! These colors don't run!
Why not keep your ignorant, yankee doodle, flag-waving bullshit confined to your trailer?

...fucking meathead douchebags.

Goldstein will win the pick off.

Firstly, if it wasn't for the Britsh you'd all be speaking french and eating baguets, yeah horrible right?

Secondly to say the lightweight class had a conspiracy theory against the yanks is possibly the dumbest thing i've heard, our lightweights are just as uncordinated and had just as bad stamina as the yanks but we still pulled through despite Dana doing his darndest to have a UK vs USA finale.

And I agree with bulldog, Hardy is way more relevant than boring Bisping.

Thing is you call me ignorant, and you insult British MMA without even thinking twice that there might be Brits out there 10x better than whoever the UFC book that are fighting predominantly in the UK, but then if you didn't assume dumb crap like that you wouldn't be American. Land of the free n all that.
Bulldog- June 20, 2009 at 12:28 am
Dan Hardy for me is a more relevant fighter to represent us brits, because he's awesome to watch.

Bisping is a fucking bore, and I wish Hendo would kick his ass already.
Bulldog- June 20, 2009 at 12:27 am
i lol'd
just some dong- June 19, 2009 at 10:50 pm
dude bisping is not even all that relevant. he'll never hold a belt I fuckin guarantee
Than- June 19, 2009 at 5:39 pm
Hey Sheps don't get all high and mighty now, there is only 1 relevant Brit in the entire UFC right now, and that's Bisping. Hardy isn't relevant yet, and neither are any of the fighters from TUF (American or British). And in response to your first comment, the vast majority of Americans are not of English decent...ya ignorant Brit.
NateGetsIrate- June 19, 2009 at 5:38 pm
Yeah that or he was escaping from the criminal charges against him here in the states.

No Yanks in the lightweights is a reflection of the UFC's decision not to cast American fighters that would have been far too superior to the UK's supposed best.

Don't kid yourself.

War Sheps!

"Good point necrophyte, so to answer cool guy sheps awesome comment, if it wasn't for the insane talent of the American's sharing their knowledge with this douche bag he'd just be another shitty Brit."

I guess thats why Rampage moved his training camp to Britain and there's no yanks in the lightweight finals right?

Yeah I thought so.
NateGetsIrate- June 19, 2009 at 4:35 pm
I think it's been more like 10 years. Could you blame him? London weather sucks balls. And the weather in OC is nice year round, which is why there's a lot of MMA stars out here. I hear Dana White lives in Dana Point. Maybe that's how Wilks ended up on the UK team to begin with.

"You need a photo of Wilks with the caption "hey buddy if it gets tough in there with the yank, remind him how if it wasn't for us, he wouldn't even exist"

Yeah you totally need a picture of Wilks saying that, it totally wouldn't be fucking retarded.
NECROPHYTE- June 19, 2009 at 4:26 pm
Fuck Wilkes. Hasn't he been living in Orange County, CA (USA) for the last 5 years!? Fake ass Englishman.
portland mma- June 19, 2009 at 4:24 pm
I wouldn't be suprised if Guillard won with a coked out superman punch.
NateGetsIrate- June 19, 2009 at 4:14 pm
Anyone been to Wilks' gym yet?

If Tomasz Drwal beats Mike Ciesnolevicz, he should get an extra bonus of being able to scoop some vowels out of Ciesnolevicz for his own name.
Dakyn- June 19, 2009 at 4:07 pm
I think Lester will beat Nick. Other than that i'd say you're pretty much on the money.

Ya American pricks.

Most of those picks look solid, except for Cameron Dollar man. If that fight hits the ground I will be amazed if Jason Dent can hold onto him.
