Fight Night Live 8 Predictions Recap

I'm going to be brief with this one as I'm pretty tired.

Well, Fight Night Live is in the books, so lets see how we did.

Match 1: Rich Clementi Def. Ross Pointon
In this fight, everyone but Euan and myself picked Clementi and everyone but Euan and myself was correct.

Match 2: Din Thomas Def. Clay Guida
Ric, Wade and myself picked Thomas to win and the rest picked Clay Guida and we were correct.

Match 3: Ed Herman Def. Chris Price
It was unanimous, we all picked Ed Herman to win, and he did so thumbs up for that.

Match 4: Josh Burkman Def. Chad Reiner
Art and Marcus picked Reiner to win and the rest of us had Burkman and were correct.

Match 5: Nate Marquardt Def. Dean Lister
Marcus and myself picked lister and we were humbled right along with young Dean.

Match 6: Hermes Franca Def. Spencer Fisher
Ric and Wade picked Franca and they were the only members of the party to get it right.

Match 7: Jake O’Brien Humbled Heath Herring
Unanimous pick going in was Heath Herring, and unanimous getting it wrong.

Match 8: Rashad Evans Def. Sean Salmon
This is the third fight that got a unanimous selection. The first 2 were split with us all getting Herman right and Herring wrong. The final fight was ended emphatically by Rashad giving us all the win.
