MMA Opinion’s UFC 97 Contest!

March 10th, 2009 by Brandt DeLorenzo


It’s that time again! We are giving away a Round 5 Anderson Silva action figure, the Chuck Liddell book “My Fighting Life” in hardcover, and a KOTC DVD.

Rules: Select the winner, round and stoppage type for each of the five main even bouts at UFC 97. You will receive points only if your fighter wins his respective fight. If a fighter drops out or does not fight for any reason, that fight will not count in this contest. You can only enter once.

Bonus: Sign up for MMA Opinion and upload a picture of yourself (or your kid, favorite fighter, pet etc…) to receive 5 bonus points!

Scoring: You will receive 5 points if you guess the winner of the fight. You will receive 4 more points if you guess the correct round. You can also receive 3 additional points if you guess the correct stoppage type. Due to UFC 94, corner stoppage has been added to this contest(thanks BJ Penn!).

Tie Breaker: Guess the attendance number for the Montreal Bell Centre for UFC 97. The closest number, higher or lower, will win the tie breaker. The tie-breaker is worth 5 points.

Open to U.S. and Canada residents. All entries must be received before 10PM ET on April 18th. Items will ship within two weeks via media mail to the address you provide.
