Update: My apologies — Penn vs. Diaz is a three-rounder, not a five-rounder as I originally implied. Please re-submit your predictions if necessary.
Halloween weekend is coming up, and we have a bag full of treats to give out to all the neighborhood kids in the Potato Nation. You’re damn right it’s fight-picking time.
To win, you’ll have to correctly predict the results of the top three fights on the UFC 137 card: BJ Penn vs. Nick Diaz, Cheick Kongo vs. Matt Mitrione, and Mirko Cro Cop vs. Roy Nelson. Submit your predictions for the fights in the comments section below, including the winner’s name, the method of victory, and the time/round of stoppage, if any. The most accurate prediction wins this Gameness Premium Cage Rash Guard (retail value: $35), courtesy of our friends at BJJHQ.com.
And as an added bonus, the first ten entries that get all three fight-winners right will score a free download of Break Media’s new iPhone game, Zombie Parkour Runner (retail value: $0.99). The 11th correct entry will get an apple with a razor in it. Hey, it happens.
Your fight-picking entry must be in this format:
- Nick Diaz def. BJ Penn via TKO, 3:47 of round 3.
- Matt Mitrione def. Cheick Kongo via unanimous decision (29-27 x 3; Kongo deducted one point for eye-gouging)
- Roy Nelson def. Mirko Cro Cop via submision (armbar), 4:01 of round 2.
Please include the judges’ scores if you think a fight will end in a decision, in case we need them for a tie-breaker. Entries must be in by Saturday at noon ET, and we’ll announce the winner on Monday. One entry per person, please. Any other questions, let us know in the comments section.
