Posted by motsuji on December 11, 2009 at 10:00am UFC 107 is right around the corner. This Saturday Hilo's BJ Penn defends his title against Diego Sanchez. Hilo's Shane Nelson is also on the card.
Da-Planet is celebrating this event with a FREE contest. Email us the picks for the following fights. You must list the winner, what round it ends in, and how the fight ends (either decision or stoppage). The person with the most accurate picks will get a FREE Silver Star Tshirt. In the event of a tie we will have a random drawing.
We will give THREE prizes away per store so there will be a winner for Honolulu and one for Hilo.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and state whether you are on Oahu or the Big Island. You MUST come into the store to pick up your prize and thus the contest is limited to Hawaii residents only.

Matt Wiman vs Shane Nelson
Comment by motsuji on December 13, 2009 at 7:50am Well the contest is over. The top picker was Team HK's Chris Templo who picked all the fights correctly, He narrowly defeated Brad Freitas who also picked all the fights correctly. Chris won on the tie breakers 4-3 where he called how the fight would end correctly 4 times to Brad's 3.
Only three people picked how a fight would end EXACTLY.
Da-Planets Yasuharu Iwashita said Ken Flo would stop Guida in the second round. The funny part is that Yasu has no idea who these people are. Goes to show he is the luckiest guy at Da-Planet.
The Big Island Ben Soares had the most exact picks as he picked Mir in 1 and Fitch by decision.
