Pick the winner

Postby Gurre » Tue May 27, 2008 9:06 am

Ok guys this is very easy. All you have to do is pick the winner.

You have to say in which mean and who wins the fight.

1 point - Correct winner of the bout.


2 points - Correct winner + method (KO, TKO, decision or DQ).

To "TKO" counts tapout, doctor stoppage, corner stoppage and ref stoppage.

You are supposed to write like this:

Bout 1: "Couture" - "KO"

Bout 2: "CroCop" - "TKO"


You may only pick the winners of the full card. Futher more you may only post once!

So good luck and let the picking begin!

Miguel Angel Torres Vs. Manny Tapia = Torres by Submission, if we see it....those little guys are so darn fast!
Brian Bowles Vs. Will Ribeiro = Bowles by sloppy ass TKO or Decision.
Waggney Fabiano Vs. Akitoshi Tamura = Fabiano by Submission
Joseph Benavidez Vs. Danny Martinez = Benavidez by Decision as he outwrestles the wrestler.
Johny Hendricks Vs. Justin Haskins = Close call, looks like Justin has a few more fights in and has a bit more of a well rounded record. I am calling Justin winner only because no one knows what he can and can not do.
Mark Munoz Vs. Ricardo Barros = Munoz by TKO, either way they will both get a new fight under their reletivly green belts.
Blas Avena Vs. Kevin Knabjian = Knabjian by TKO. Blas looked good against guys like Goshin and Dave Terell, but Knabjian is just more well rounded. Kevin by TKO or sub.
Diego Nunes Vs. Cole Province = Someone will win and we will get to see who they both are...as for right now Cole could be the guy packing my food in bags and Nunes could have put gas in my car for all I know!
Bart Palaszewski Vs. Alex Karalexis = Bartamus by TKO and brutal ass rape. Alex is a boxer with little else to offer. Bart is a great grappler with decent stand up and he has what it takes to turn it on Karalexis and win.
Hiroyuki Takaya Vs. Cub Swanson = after a strange loss to Pulver Cub still has something to show us and I think he will do it against Takaya. Cub by TKO or sub.
Shane Roller Vs. Mike Budnik = who knows...who cares! I think Budnik has more experience than Shane...but not by much.
