Thanks to everybody who entered our UFC on FX 8 fight-picking contest, brought to you by It’s Time! My 360° View of the UFC. Though nobody specifically predicted that Belfort vs. Rockhold would be decided by a spinning hook kick halfway through the first round, there were a bunch of CP fight-pickers who correctly guessed that Vitor Belfort would make short work of the the former Strikeforce champ. The two closest entries were…
fulltimekilla: Belfort via TKO at 3:12 of Round 1 (40 seconds away from actual time of stoppage)
kuckleup101.2: Belfort def. Rockhold via TKO, 3:31 of round 1 (59 seconds away from actual time of stoppage)
If your name has been called, please send your real names and mailing addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll send out your autographed copies of Bruce Buffer’s new book right away. As for the rest of you, feel free to actually buy a copy of the book right here.
And hey, we also have some other contest business to discuss. Last week, we promised a t-shirt to the person who could come up with the best fake rule for Nick Diaz’s new MMA promotion. The competition was fast and furious, and after sifting through the entries, we’ve decided to hand out CagePotato t-shirts to three winners. They are…
cman: Losing fighters will have 24 hours to change their mind and declare themselves the winner.
johnny6pack: No spinning shit. Unless it’s asked for by the opponent throwing his hands wide and specifically stating “we’re throwing spinning shit now.”
Grandmas Nutmeg: If at anytime you are visibly outmatched, the referee will allow 1-6 of your cornermen to join the fight, this number will be determined by a game of dice in between rounds.
Brilliant. Please send your names and addresses to email@example.com, and as usual, expect your t-shirt to arrive anywhere from two weeks to never.
