10/12 for me, the main card was pretty tough to pick.

I'd say probably half of the fights picked themselves but some of the main card ones were toss up's.

I am gutted I picked against Dan Hardy. I thought it would be a win/win for me because if he lost I'd have at least picked right. But he keeps stepping up and proving the doubters wrong so well done to him.

I also went 10/12 I think. But I reckon someone might have gone one better...

Alright fellas- was out of town this weekend so I'm playing catch up with a hangover after watch Texas beat Southern Mississippi last night so I'll try to get this updated and get the results out- if they aren't ready by today they will be by tomorrow at the latest. Gotta do that other real work and crap too.

Alright here yall go: Man this event was waaaay better, pick wise, than UFC 98 for this forum. We also came razor close to having not one but three members pick a perfect card only to be done in by one fight- that basically tripped up everyone as well. We'll get into that more but later. Also another few firsts in this series of contests- a 3-way tie for first place, no one sent in a card that averaged below 50% correct selections and we have our first back to back champion.

Your winners:

Big Congrats to:

mattandbenny
Simmi
Two-Three

All three of them picked 11 out of 12 fights correctly.

FINAL RESULTS:

(11-1) - mattandbenny, Simmi, Two-Three

(10-2) - BrFighter07, HrrcnsMc8, Couchwarrior, Rated, pipe, Baby Jay D., TheBrickhouse, BrianRClover, e-thug

(9-3) - Darkwraith, dudeabides, TeMpO, Evil Ira, Walker

(8-4) - Kimura_Korey, mihklo, attention, Dream-On-101, Rachmunas

(7-5) - HeavyRob, List

(6-6) - TERMINATOR(failed to turn 2 picks for 2 fights )


Random stats:Obviously most fights were picked correctly for everyone , except for 1 fight the average for correct picks on the fights was 20.5 out of 25 card submitted for a 82% average for correct picks on all fights. That's a damn high number. The 3 easiest fights to predict were Hathaway-Story where only 1 person picked incorrectly( and person was:
), only 2 people went with Al Turk over Cro Cop and only 3 people got the Etim/Buchholz, Kelly/Delgado and the Struve/Stojnic match-ups incorrectly. The 2 hardest fights to pick, other than the big one, was Franklin/Silva and Velasquez/Kongo match ups where 7 people each picked incorrectly. Most people can probably guess which fight caused the most trouble: Hardy/Davis. Obviously the uber-close Split decision cost a lot of people on this event because had that decision gone the other way all 3 of our champs in this event would have picked a perfect card. That fight tripped them all up as well as 19 other people for this event- only 3 people picked Hardy to win. Those 3 were: HrrcnsMc8, Dream-On-101 and TheBrickhouse. By far the toughest fight to call as overall that fight's correct to incorrect score for this event was 3-22.

So there you go- great job by everyone on this card- congrats on that.

One quick note there will not be a PTCC for the up coming US-UK TUF Finale- since it's less than a week away and the fight card is not yet set. This will start back up for the historic UFC 100 card so keep checking the UFC section for that thread. Also check out the WEC and Strikeforce sections for up coming events and PTTCs, as well as, the Japanese section for the DREAM 10 PTTC.

Thanks to everyone for participating and, once again, huge congrats to our PTCC #4 champs: mattandbenny, Simmi and Two-Three. Credits are on the way and the bonus points will be rolled over to the UFC 100 event.
