FiveOuncesOfPain.com is celebrating the unveiling of its first-ever t-shirt by giving our loyal readers the opportunity to play fantasy matchmaker and a chance to win your very own 5 Oz. t-shirt.
Starting this Monday morning we will make a contest page live where you can nominate a matchup that you would like to see replace the Matt Serra vs. Matt Hughes UFC welterweight title match scheduled for UFC 79 on Dec. 29.
Myself, Matt Cava, and Adam Morgan will all serve as judges and we will vote on the best fantasy matchmaker suggestion. If none of the nominations record at least two out of three votes, a fourth judge will be asked to rule on the three matches that each received an individual vote from the three-man panel.
The rules are you can only suggest one match. Also, match nominations go on a first come, first serve basis. For example, if Jack Johnson nominates Joe Smith vs. John Doe, Jack Johnson gets that match.
But the most important rule of all is that the match has to have a realistic possibility of being booked. We’re not going to recognize nominations that include fighters who have just fought, or are already slated to fight, or are injured and unable to compete. You can also use names not on the UFC roster, but they must not be contracted to another promotion. For example, Fedor vs. Randy Couture sounds great but that has no chance of happening on Dec. 29.
I know the terms of this contest will make things hard, but that’s the idea! Do you really think we’d be giving away something as illustrious as a 5 Oz. t-shirt without making you put a little thought into things?
While leaving commentary with your nomination is not mandatory please remember that a judging panel will be voting on the nominations. The more compelling your argument is, the better your chances of getting your nomination a vote.
This contest will not be open until Monday. Any post in this thread will not be considered a valid entry.
5 Oz. t-shirts are only available in medium, large, extra large, and double-extra large.
