I get lucky once again with 30 points. God I hate Jones.

Scott makes a return with 26 points.

UH and Nerb with 24 points tie for 3rd.

Harry and the MML Yoda tie for 5th with 22 points.

C's strategy for picking all Pride fighters didn't work out so hot, but I'm sure he was pumped Hunt beat up a corpse. 20 pts C.

Pete comes in 8th with 18 points. We all know you know your MMA Pete, so don't sweat it.

DJ makes an appearance with 4 points. I give him creadit but he even admitted not knowing many of the fighters.

Good job to all.

Hell yeah!

Ben Rothwell set a new precedent of most exhausted fighter in UFC history, so step aside Mark Coleman.

Am I the only one who thought that was easily FOTN?

Man take away DJ only predicting like a third of the fights and I am back at the bottom after a couple brief moments in the upper half lol

Yes. You are definitely the only one.

They were awful and that fight was a disgrace to the UFC.
Slow fat low-to-mid tier heavyweights don't belong on the main card of PPVs.

Wow, I've never disagreed more with you Yoda.

And you can call Mark Hunt a lot of things, but slow? He is one of the most explosive strikers in the division, and his hand speed and combinations are probably the best that HW has to offer.

Yeah, JDS may throw as good combos, but not with anywhere near the power than Hunt has.

They weight 260 pounds and are fighting at over a mile high. What do you want from them? They both fought hard and never gave up.

I suppose they are "low-to-mid tier" compared to who; Rob Broughton, Stephan Struve and Matt Mitrione? Get real. HW is still very shallow in the UFC, and these two are top 15 in that division. That was a terrific matchup on paper that played out into an instant classic in my book.

That came off a little more dickish than I intended, sorry if it seemed a little disrespectful Green One.

C I think both fighters should be cut after seeing what they did. That was horrible! I couldn't imagine seeing either fighter compete with any of the top 10 guys in the HW division. Neither are up and coming fighters either.

Come on. At that kind of altitude I bet even Shaun T would be standing there with his hands on his knees after trying to control a guy as strong as Hunt for five minutes:)

Pre card killed me, I actually ranked higher than I thought.

I hope when he enters the cage for his next fight, Jon Jones hyper-extends his elbow doing his stupid one armed cartwheel and can't fight.
