Go join tapolgy.com, make an account, and it will give you an image code after you make your picks. It might be too late for this event though. You might have 10 minutes or something if you hurry.

I just made this, and I hope it doesn't jinx Jones.

CSB

I absolutely love Fedor, and have for years, and then what do you know, he was coming to fight a couple hours away from me. I went into a sporting goods store and found a Fedor shirt to wear to the fight and turned to my brother and said 'man, I hope I'm not jinxing him with this.' That fight was Fabricio Werdum and it was over in barely over a minute. His first loss (well legitimate. He had another one via doctor stoppage 17 seconds into the fight, due to a cut over his eyebrow) goddammitsomuch!

Jones should take this fight without much trouble. Rashad will struggle to get this to the ground to negate the reach. His wrestling is excellent, but Jones is an excellent greco roman wrestler, so he will do everything to make sure it doesn't get to the ground except to slice his head open with an elbow.

Jones: Second round KO

For some reason Jones seems too smug for me almost like a faux humility, so despite the fact that I think Evans is a cocky mofo I really hope he puts Jones to work in this fight.

Winner: Evans (hopefully in a reserved fashion).

Also I honestly hope there's gonna be a Evans/Jones 2 no matter what the outcome of this match may be.

Glad Alvarez won, would be happy if he goes over to the UFC. Rebney will have to fork over some major cash to keep him.

Hahaha, I didn't notice the Belta. Jones put this pic on his twitter the other day, and someone on sherdog posted it, but must've changed the Delta to Belta(my source pic for the caption), as in they think he's a Beta male. Hardy har-herpty derp. That wasn't mine. I fail.

Lorenzo Fertitta congratulated Alvares on his twitter. Alvarez only has one more fight on his Bellator contract. hmmmmm. I called that one though. Aoki and a lot of the other Japanese fighters seem to struggle with other fighters when it isn't in a Japanese promotion. Gomi, Akiyama, Okami...

I'm generally a fan of stopping a fight too early rather than too late. Based on what he's done to others, I wish the ref had let Alvarez bounce Aoki's head off the canvas a few more times.

I think I'll be going to Bdubs to watch the fights tonight. Excited to see Matt Brown fight. He's one of my favorites, and while I know hes an underdog here he can pull it off if he can get inside on Wonderboy, and stay there. Considering how awesome of a kickboxer Thomis is if he maintains a distance it's not going to be a good night for Brown...

Blanco vs Brimmage


Round 1

Blanco starts things off witha couple of kicks, getting blocked but doing some damage as Brimage looks to connect with punches. He starts with a low kick and tries a head kick Brimmage moves forward with a punch combination and then barely backs away from the head kick attempt. Brimmage follows that up with aleg kick and a good couple of straight puncehs that connect as Blanco is moving back. Brimmage repeats the punches and they circle. Blanco continues to kick and has a low kick caught by Brimmage, who can't do anything with it. Blanco puts out a counter hook as Brimmage tries to connect with the two punch combo he's been throwing consistently. While Brimmage keeps throwing htose same puncehs, they are connecting. Blanco fails with his counter this time. Brimmage continues with is attack of choice and Blanco ducks and takes Brimmage down for a moment, the two springing back to the feet quickly. Brimmage switches to a few jabs, ranging them more than anything. Brimmage tries a 1-2 and eats a right hand counter after it. Brimmage still the one that is putting out more shots and taking less damage for now. Blanco puts out a leg kick and Brimages comes back with one of his own, both more glancing blows than anything. Brimmage tries some hooks and eats a good right hand counter form Blanco. They exchange a couple more and reset. Both try the leg kick and Brimmage follows with some punches and another leg kick that have him coming out on top in this exchange. The two circle to the end of the round

10/9 BRimmage. Blanco had some good counters but not enough to win the round.

A bunch of the guys I was friends with as a little kid are friends with Thompson. It would be nice to see him be successful and add an MMA guy to the list of famous athletes from the upstate SC area in the same age group (Garnett, Ray Allen, Lucas Glover).

Blanco vs BRimmage

Round 2

Brimmage continues where he left off, pumping the jab for range. He feints a couple of kicks but its all range and misses for now. Blanco tries a front kick that barely misses. He follows that with a jumpkick and continues with abody kick while Brimmage tries to counter with punches. Blanco tries it againand connects but it just seems to piss brimmage off as Brimmage bull rushes him with a fast and hard straight that knocks Blanco off balance. Brimmage tries to score with some ground shots while Blanco is down and scrambling to get back to the feet. HE eventually does and they reset in the center, both waiting for the right moment to continue striking. Blanco tries a low kick and eats a right hand for hte trouble. He tries again and Brimmage puts a few punches out on Blanco. They circle and Brimage ranges the jab. Blanco connects witha low kick and they circle. He follows up with a jumping kick that can't be dinished as Brimmage moves in with punches that are mostly blocked. brimmage continues to put out punches, missing with an overhand and getting counter punched for it. Blanco is putting out a lot of kic feints, seeming to be his weapon of choice, and not the best weapon it seems as Brimmage is scoring more punches and more connections in striking in general. The round setting a pace now as they continue to circle and exchange shots. Brimmage moves in with punches and tries aleg kick, getting tripped up as Blanco scores a good counter during it. Brimmage blocks a head kick as he's trying a leg kick. They flurry a couple more shots at each other as the round closes.

10/9 Brimmage. It's all strike count now, although I believe Blanco is a good counter punch away from putting brimmage in some trouble.

He moves forward with some jabs, missing as Blanco is out of range. Brimmage moves in with a leg kick and follows through as Blanco tries a head kick, triping blanco down. That will score some points. Blanco tries a couple punches while he's out of range. Brimmage continues to range the jab as they circle.

Brimmage tries to counter but misses as the round starts to close. They paw a couple more punches and Blanco tries a kick, having to back up after the miss as BRimmage puts out a flurry of punches to close the round.

10/9 Brimmage I have him in a shut out. the two start pullong off some gymnastics after the fight is over. If only they put that kind of energy into the fight it could have been a little more exciting

Judges score it 29/28 blanco 29/28 brimmage and 29/28 for Brimmage by split decision

Wisniewski vs Clements

TOTT has Wisniewski with two inches in height. I'll be calling Wisniewski as Wis and Vlements as Clements.

Round 1

Clements starts thing off with a good leg kick. Wis tries to come back with a jab that is blocked. Clements fires off a 1-2 and then follows it with a few more puncehs that backs Wis up. Wis is the one moving forward though. he tries a couple of punches and clinches up, looking for a trip takedown. Clements keeps the cage to his back for a moment before Clements can turn him down, winding up in side control. Wis works around, putting himself between Clements and the cage before looking for some ground and pound.. He gets a good elbow in that has blood flowing but can't see where. Wis continues to put out elbows but they're few and far between. Ref doesn't like dominant position and slow action and stands them up. On the stand up its wis that is cut, must have eaten an elbow from Clements form the bottom somewhere in there. Tehy exchange a couple of strikes before Clements wings an overhand Clements tries it again before switching to a couple of low kicks. Wis tries a couple punches of his own and clements returns, both missing Wis tries a 1-2 and walks into a heavy counter form clements. Clements follows that with a glancing body shot. Clements sets up a spinning back kick that connects perfectly. Wis delays on the reaction, going down after realizing hwe was hit well. Clements goes down but winds up in dangerous position as Wis is aware enough to look for a sub. Clements stands and hunts for that body where he hurt him as the round closes.

10-9 Clements, stole the round with that kick and striking. The cut helps matters too.
