UFC 200 CONTESTS: Prediction and Betting Game Results

By Tom Strong, MMATorch UK Contributor

Sadly UFC 200 wasn’t the event we’d all hoped for, and certainly won’t be remembered as a night of epic bouts. It’ll be remembered more for the saga surrounding the event than the action we saw, or the lack of action for that matter.

It wasn’t all bad; the preliminary UFC Fight Pass card had three straight first round TKO’s. Cain Velasquez looked back to his best with a first round TKO victory over Travis Browne, whilst Jose Aldo put on a masterclass in defeating Frankie Edgar via unanimous decision to win the Interim UFC Featherweight Title.

While we try to erase Cormier vs. Silva and Brock vs. Hunt from our memories, Amanda Nunes was a highlight, becoming the new UFC Bantamweight Champion by submitting Miesha Tate inside the first round..

Lets see how you all go on, along with the anticipated World Cup Semi-Final results!


28 people submitted an entry for this card. Here’s a combined breakdown of how many confidence points you placed on each fighter (Winner in bold):

Amanda Nunes -11

Miesha Tate -148

Brock Lesnar -22

Mark Hunt -100

Daniel Cormier -185

Anderson Silva -6

Jose Aldo -49

Frankie Edgar -48

Cain Velasquez -163

Travis Browne -6

Julianna Pena -27

Cat Zingano -71

Kelvin Gastelum -54

Johny Hendricks -32

T.J Dillashaw -191

Gegard Mousasi -198

Thaigo Santos -3

Jim Miller -113

Takanori Gomi -9



Jaymon1002 (65 points) beats Dan Moore (53 points) to remain the MMATorch Confidence Picks Champion.

Jaymon1002 made a successful first defence of his title by beating an out of form Daniel Moore who only manage to return 53 points. Despite both players having similar picks and scores throughout the card, victory was sealed for Jaymon1002 when Jose Aldo and Brock Lesnar were both victorious.

Next up for Jaymon1002 will be Scott Pipher (73 points) who had a fantastic night predicting 10/12 fights correctly and only dropping 5 points in the process. Surprisingly the two fights he dropped points on were both heavy favourites in Gegard Mousasi and Cain Velasquez. Haven taken a break at UFC 199, Mac Kinder returned to the action, scoring (69 points) and securing second place in the pool.

The man from Philly is on a roll, will Scott Pipher be able to stop him at UFC 201?..

Here are the results of the Confidence Picks pool:

73- Scott Pipher

69- Mac Kinder

66- Tommy Strong

66- Sean Simpson

65- Jaymon1002

64- Eugene Kim

63- Richard Race

63- Jon Evans

63- Joel Wielenga

61- Mark Sacchetti

61- Michael Douglas

60- John Lewish

57- David Little

57- Charles Mickael

56- Blake Whorton

55- Norman Price

55- David Lindahn

53- Dan Moore

53- Sam Martin

51- Brian Foe

49- Ben S

49- Anthony Sinnott

49- Malcolm Piper

34- Neal Hollic

Note: Should either champion, or challenger fail to submit picks for UFC 201 (Lawler vs. Woodley) Mac Kinder would step up as a challengers and so on. Everyone else will be fighting for the No 1 contender slot on the night, and the right to face off against either Jaymon1002 or Scott Pipher at UFC 202.


David Lindahn ($413.21) beats Dan Moore ($0) to retain his MMATorch Betting Title.

David Lindahn: $413.21

$300 on Mousasi for $413.21

Dan Moore: $0

That’s three in a row for David Lindahn who now has one foot inside the the hall of fame door. David’s sole returning bet on Mousasi was enough to remain champion. His victory was made a lot easier by the fact every bet placed by Dan, went up in smoke! Great job David.

Next up for David will be myself! Yes, you did read that correctly, I did in fact top the pool with a total of $3613.33. Scott Piper ran me a close second with $3044.50, if only he’d placed a 3 fight parlay instead of 2 the outcome would’ve been different. I look forward to the battle at UFC 201, David.

World Cup Semi-Final Result:

Scott Pipher (73) def. Ben S (49)

Richard Race (63) def. Mark Sacchetti (61)

Congraulations Scott and Richard, the Final will take place at UFC 201.

Performance Of The Night: None other than Scott Pipher for scoring an highly impressive 73 points on a card that was very hard to predict, and by coming a close second in the betting pool. Well done Scott!

GOAT: Having failed in both title challenges Dan Moore was close to getting this award. But luckily for Dan, Neal Hollic’s performance didn’t go unnoticed. Scoring only 33 points and predicting 3/12 correctly, there was only one winner for this award.
