The time has come for TC Engel, BVandDietPepsi, and myself to step into the big show and actually judge a live event for BloodyElbow's personal amusement. To everyone who followed us earlier this week as we worked out the kinks in post-judging UFC 143, we thank you. There were definitely some hiccups but we made it through. Tonight, we'll score the action from Fuel to FX as the event builds to the Flyweight tournament where Mighty Mouse and Uncle Creepy will finally settle the score and determine the final combatants for the first ever UFC 125 lb. Champion.
Special thanks to Tim Bernier, who will be filling in for me as I slave away at work during the prelims. I expect you all to recognize him as the unofficial Brenda throughout his contribution.
UPDATE: Apologies to everyone, apparently this turned into an all around clusterfuck while I was at work. It really sucks because we were all really excited to get this going as the inaugural event for We Three Judges. It's not all a loss though, as I think we worked out a lot of the kinks with the mock live judging of UFC 143.
