Zuffa Editorial Director Thomas Gerbasi has just given us a stack of his upcoming book UFC Encyclopedia, a slick and meticulously detailed reference guide to the promotion’s 18-year history — perfect for your coffee table or the crapper. And we want to give away three copies to the savviest fight-pickers in the Potato Nation.
This Saturday, UFC 136: Edgar vs. Maynard III goes down at the Toyota Center in Houston, featuring the conclusion (we hope) of MMA’s grittiest lightweight rivalry, Jose Aldo‘s latest title featherweight defense against Kenny Florian, and Chael Sonnen‘s love-fest with Brian Stann. Submit your predictions for these three fights in the comments section below, including the winner’s name, the method of victory, and the time/round of stoppage, if any. Your entry should be in this format:
- Gray Maynard def. Frankie via split decision (48-47, 47-48, 48-47)
- Jose Aldo def. Kenny Florian via TKO, 4:10 of round 4
- Chael Sonnen def. Brian Stann via submission (brabo choke), 0:13 of round 1
Please include the judges’ scores if you think a fight will end in a decision, in case we need them for a tie-breaker. The three most accurate predictions win a copy of the book. 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. Good luck.
