MassMMA Fantasy Football

by Bonnell ~ August 1st, 2012

Cage Titans: Mayhem – Ready For Predictions

by greg saks ~ January 24th, 2011

Cage Titans: Mayhem is this Friday night, January 28th at Lombardo’s in Randolph, MA.  Featuring a main event of Barrington Douse vs Christian Rivera, plus a monster 17-fight undercard that includes many of the best amateur prospects around, make sure you check this card out.

The card is posted and ready for everyone to begin entering picks.  The event page is here:

http://www.tapology.com/fightcenter/events/cage-titans-mayhem

You can get your picks in all the way up until 7:00 on Friday night, and the fights are set to start at 7:30.  Worth mentioning is that fighting on this card is Ruben “Rukus” Rey, currently 4-1 with a monster KO over his last opponent at CES in December.  Rey also crushed the pre-fight predictions for that card, going 7 of 8 and topping the entire leaderboard.  He also went 9 of 13 at the last AFO card and is looking like one of the local fight-pickers to beat.
