Featured Nugget: PPV Predictions: UFC 122
Along with the results of Saturday's UFC 122 event comes the latest standings of Wrestling Nugget's very own Prediction League...
Nate Marquardt vs. Yushin Okami (No.1 Contender Middleweight Title Fight)
Result: Yushin Okami def. Nate Marquardt via unanimous decision
Wrestling Nuggets' pick: Yushin Okami +1
Steven Money's pick: Nate Marquardt
Corey Santiago's pick: Yushin Okami +1
Don Owen's pick: Yushin Okami +1
Okami earned himself a future shot at the UFC Middleweight title against the winner of UFC 126's match up between Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort, and didn't even need to use his wrestling skills to do it as he beat Nate in a mainly stand up fight.
This main event was a disappointment, especially to the Psychic Lizard who agreed with Dana White's opinion that Nate Marquardt "choked". Biggest news coming from this fight result though is that Don Owens actually picked up his first points in the Prediction league!!!! Whoa!
That'll teach Nate for being any part of a diss towards Jay-Z...
Jorge Rivera vs. Alessio Sakara
Result: Fight Cancelled due to Alessio Sakara suffering a pre fight illness.
WN's pick: Jorge 'El Conquistador' Rivera
SM's pick: Alessio Sakara
CS's pick: Alessio Sakara
DO's pick: Jorge Rivera
Dennis Siver vs. Andre Winner
Result: Dennis SIver wins via submission (Rd 1)
As predicted Dennis Siver made the home town fans very happy with a quick submission victory over the English man, Andre Winner.
WN's pick: Dennis Siver +1
SM's pick: Dennis Siver +1
CS's pick: Dennis Siver +1
DO's pick: Andre Winner
Amir Sadollah vs. Peter Sobotta
Result: Amir Sadollah wins by via unanimous decision
Saddolah got back to winning ways with a convincing performance leading to his unanimous decision victory.
WN's pick: Amir Sadollah +1
SM's pick: Amir Sadollah +1
CS's pick: Amir Sadollah +1
DO's pick: Peter Sobotta
Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Goran Reljic
Result: Krzysztof Soszynski wins by unanimous decision
WN's pick: Krzysztof Soszynski +1
SM's pick: Krzysztof Soszynski +1
CS's pick: Krzysztof Soszynski +1
DO's pick: Goran Reljic
with the latest results taken into account, here's how the Wrestling Nuggets' Prediction League now looks:
1) Steven Money: (6,3)
2) Wrestling Nuggets: (6,3)
3) Corey Santiago: (5,4)
4) Don Owens: (1,8)
as noted earlier the main event result came as a huge disappointment to at least one fight predicting reptile. The Psychic Lizard now has a 50/50 record with her UFC predictions but will be looking to get back on winning ways by picking winners for both the UFC 123 main event of Lyoto Machida vs. 'Rampage' Jackson & the BJ Penn vs. Matt Hughes fight. Little hint for you all, i've gotta think she's gonna be siding with the fellow 'Dragon' in the main event...
UFC 123 Fight Predictions will be coming soon to Wrestling Nuggets, be sure to check back.
