    Week 13 Hall of Fame Ceremony

    This past Saturday, RapMusic's very own MMA Prediction League hit a VERY big stride,
    with 5 members predicting perfectly, and nearly all members earning a 3-1 minimum.
    The last time the league came close to this was UFC 146, when 3 members entered the Hall of Fame.


    UFC 146 marked the first time anyone entered the Hall of Fame and
    Sir Bustalot was the only member to snag an HOF entry after it, for
    TUF Live Finale, June 1st 2012.


    Now, a little more then 2 months has passed, and a new wave of Perfect Predictions has come.
    Congratulations are in order for the following members:


    FarooqHakim* 8th Place
    With only one Perfect Prediction to his name,
    this seems to be the bright point in Hakim's short season.
    Is this a sign of things to come?


    Jay Bee* 4th Place
    One of the few members to stick with the RPML since day 1,
    Jay finally earned his first Perfect Prediction and with it an HOF nod.
    He holds the highest position he has in awhile,
    here's hoping he improves it.


    zyclon B gas* Tied for 5th place (with 4 others)
    Another veteran member, zyclon finally earned his HOF spot.
    Though his trust in Lungzzz isn't quite where it needs to be,
    he has always been around the Top 5 of the league.


    LungZzZ* 1st Place
    Starting in last place (which wasn't a good look for the League Founder),
    I have finally snagged the Top spot, even if it's just for awhile.
    Here's hoping Mumsy let's Bustalot predict next week ;)


    J.Keeper* Tied for 5th place (4)
    Self proclaimed Jedi,
    Keeper had long been atop the leaderboard here in the RMPL.
    Recently he has taken a stumble,
    but this HOF nod seems to say different.


    Feel free to offer your Congratulations their way!!!

    Yup, this Saturday UFC is BACK, and on PAY-PER-VIEW.
    Rousimar Palhares was FORCED out of a YUSHIN OKAMI fight,
    Buddy Roberts replaces him. The event will take place in Denver, Colorado.


    5-Fight Maincard Includes:
    Champion Benson Henderson vs. Challenger Frank Edgar 4 The UFC Lightweight World Title.
    Donald Cerrone vs. Melvin Guillard @ Lightweight.
    Jake Shields vs. Ed Herman @ Middleweight.
    Yushin Okami vs. Buddy Roberts @ Middleweight.
    Justin Lawrence vs. Max Holloway @ Featherweight.

    (Good news folks only 1 fight under 155!!! :p jks)

    Though not the most STACKED card this Summer, UFC 150 in Denver still looks to impress. The Benson/Edgar rematch alone is enough to intrigue the hardcore MMA fan, Donald Cerrone vs Melvin Guillard is there for the casual fan that loves a good barn-burner, and Yushin Okami vs Buddy Roberts is that wtf fight you have no idea what is going to happen in.

    As always make your predictions easy to read, and think long and hard about these ones.
    With a little effort, you could be the next Hall of Fame entry.

    Week 13 Picks!

    Champion Benson Henderson vs. Challenger Frank Edgar 4 The UFC Lightweight World Title.
    Funny people hate on GSP for not finishing fights.
    Edgar rarely does. That being said I am a big fan of both GSP and Edgar,
    Sad that I have to go against him here.

    Donald Cerrone vs. Melvin Guillard @ Lightweight.
    Fuck. I wanted to pick Melvin so bad.
    Same age, both have great talent...Submission of the night here?

    Jake Shields vs. Ed Herman @ Middleweight.
    Jake has done great things,
    against middle of the road comp. but great things none the less.
    If he loses here mark my words I will never pick him again
    (probably won't have to worry, he'll be cut if so).
    I'm expecting a fight of the night here though, Ed is the smart pick,
    better stand-up, but here's hoping Jake gets it to the ground.

    Yushin Okami vs. Buddy Roberts @ Middleweight.
    At one point Yushin was one of the best Japanese fighters in the UFC.
    If he loses here, I will never say that again. And if it is by KO,
    my chin theory is proven correct yet again.

    Justin Lawrence vs. Max Holloway @ Featherweight.



    Picks as always. FOTN Cerrone vs Melvin, Sub Jake vs Herman, Jake gettting it, and KO of the night....No one I wish to say.

    Bendo in a different thread i said i felt edgar would win, he has a good chance but i feel bendo has a better chance to win taking the first fight convincinly in my eyes

    Donald i do want melvin to win but i dont see cerrone getting kod and he could possibly pull off a sub

    Ed he has been subbed before but he has more submission wins then sheilds and sheilds hasnt subbed anyone lately and only once since entering strikeforce against robbie lawlor. herman has power in his hands and i think the ability to keep the fight on the feet and sheilds doesnt have as solid standup

    Yushin i almost picked buddy because he has a chance to pull of an upset and hes with Greg jacksons mma so i assume he will have a smart way of approaching the fight with that said Yushin brings experience to the table having been in there with champions and former champions and you cant teach cage experience without having been in there yourself, also i wish i had seen buddy fight before making this pick

    Justin

    Fight of the night Edgar vs Henderson
    Sub of the night Cerrone
    KO of the night Herman

    Henderson. I have a tough time calling this one. I've watched the first fight a couple times and feel Edgar was doing very well before the upkick in the first fight. Henderson was starting to get in the groove of countering Edgar's striking/knee tap offense by meeting his with big shots and knees. For the second meeting, I feel Henderson will still capitalize on that as well as use his size advantage a little bit more. I feel we saw Edgar through and through in the first fight, but we'll see. Henderson by rocking Edgar and then subbing.

    Cerrone. Will be a kick-heavy performance, followed by a possible submission.

    Herman. I think Shields is about through. we'll see if MW rejuvenates his career. It is certainly less wrestling heavy.

    Okami. I don't really know who Roberts is, and Okami's good enough to almost be a safe bet.

    Lawrence. I think. I forget these guys.

    When ever you want basically before the main-card starts @ 10pm, JUST don't cheat, and it is all good. Make a note in your picks that you edited , that would make it easier.

    Honestly you should check that out, because you guys always say I do one thing, I check and it is totally different.

    TBH I would rather you got your picks right the first time, like the PMs and threads say, I want yall to get perfect and think about your picks before selecting/making them.

    Edit how you see fit before 10pm e/s/t the day of. I just have to check all the edit-times under the posts to make sure no one edited, which is a little unconvenient
