So I've been MIA for the last week or so absolutely killing real life. Got my CDL today and I've got a sick job lined up. Yeah, I'm gloating, do something about it
Anyway, I've recently discovered Sherdog Fantasy MMA. I've never been a big fan of fantasy anything, but my friends convinced me to fill a spot in their fantasy football league this year (currently 3-0 with $200 up for grabs. Yeah, I'm gloating again, DO SOMETHING), so I figured "GO BIG OR GO HOME" applied to the situation and thus, I joined Sherdog fantasy. Went 8-4 last week, which honestly was garbage due to the Brenneman and Dunham fights. Not sayin either of them should have won, obviously, but I expected more.
(16%) Jason Young vs (84%) Robert Peralta
Young - UD
Well, 84% of the Sherdog community is retarded, who woulda thunk? Jason Young via UD. That's a mortal lock too. Take your kids' college funds and bet on Young here. You're welcome.
You see Young doesn't get T/KO'd, and he wins decisions. Peralta only T/KO's people, for the most part, and if Peralta doesn't T/KO people, he punches himself out and loses a decision. I don't know if I'm a genius for figuring that out or something, but I can't deny that it sounds like a logical pick.
(23%) DaMarques Johnson vs (77%) Gunnar Nelson
Nelson - Submission, 1st
So the story here is that Gunnar Nelson loves to sub people and DaMJo (that's a catchy nick name, I know) loves to be subbed. Pretty simple pick.
(24%) Tom Watson vs (76%) Brad Tavares
Tavares - Submission, 2nd
You gotta respect Tom Watson (whom I will now refer too as T-Wat, I kill myself.) The guy is just here for the fight. He's well-rounded, kinda, sorta. I just think Tavares is too young, fast, and determined for the W. **** will give it a good go though.
(79%) Andy Ogle vs (21%) Akira Corassani
Corassani - UD
I honestly can't remember why I made this pick, but I know it was for a good reason. Just trust me here.
(58%) Kyle Kingsbury vs (42%) Jimi Manuwa
Manuwa - T/KO, 1st
Kingsbury is just bad. I think he's fighting for his job here and needs a good-looking finish to keep it. Unfortunately Jimi's going to put him down.
Also, you heard it here first, Manuwa's gonna be a star in the UFC.
(67%) Che Mills vs (33%) Duane Ludwig
Ludwig - T/KO, 1st
No rhyme or reason for this pick, I just think Ludwig finishes it quick.
(90%) John Hathaway vs (10%) John Maguire)
Hathaway - UD
Maguire likes submissions, but Hathaway will probably just keep it standing. Hath either wins by TKO or UD. I picked UD simply because... well.... I dunno.
(74%) Paul Sass vs (26%) Matt Wiman
Wiman - UD
I'm predicting a lot of UDs on this card because there are a lot of lower-weight fights. I know some people are big on Paul Sass, but Wiman doesn't get submitted, has more experience, and likes long fights.
Pickett will sub Yves in the 2nd. Not gonna waste anymore time talking about that fight.
Hardy will UD Sadollah
Struve will sub Miocic in the 2nd
