Well, another UFC card concludes as does another BECW5 event. The fights were fun for the most part, but I'm sure you've heard plenty about them since Saturday night. If you haven't watched the Matt Grice vs. Dennis Bermudez fight though, drop what you're doing immediately and get on that. 68.5 points on average separated winning and losing teams, with the closest match being decided by 24 points, and the usual slaughtering of a team occurred where the victors had 154 more points than their opponent. There's only two more regular season matches left, so the pressure should be on from here on out for teams to try to snag one of the eight spots in the BECW Grand Prix. Let's just go ahead and jump into the individual stats.

Ben finished in 1st? Really? He was 19th overall on Playground as well, as he chose five fights perfectly including the hot bout, and a few 7's that would have been 11's as well if it weren't for all the damned split decisions on this card. BECW veteran manch1ld slides into second for the BECW and #30 on PG as he turned in four perfect picks including the hot bout as well. Yet neither guy got any points for the Schaub or Lawler wins. Fourth-round draft pick Pat Tzu and failing captain Josh Hall each tied to round out the top 3 for the event. Congratulations to all of you. Actually, congratulations to all 131 of you who suffered through the exhausting process of making picks for the event, as it was clearly too much of a burden for UndrCovrBrah. This is why we can't have nice things, people.

Individual Season Rankings

(Scores are only tallied for events you were competing in the BECW, so replacement players will have to manually compare their season point totals from PG to the players' scores on the chart. It doesn't calculate week-by-week rank change for you either. Sorry.)

Body Triangle is still set out to do the impossible, and be the first player drafted last to finish first for the season. However, with Ben's impressive first-place finish for this event, he finds himself now in second place and only a point behind Body Triangle. Ben Bauman, memitim, and Mookie are all within striking distance as well, though. CatchNJ687 really needs to get things on track as he's trailing the pack so far, even below the guy who just turned in a 0 for this event.

Individual Performance Evaluation

(How you're performing for the season-to-date based on the difference between your individual season ranking and your draft number. Negative numbers are bad. Replacement players are excluded, as they were not drafted.)

Body Triangle is obviously still the over-performer of the season, followed by memitim (+114) and then three rookies in Careful-Icarus (+104), Gator Rolled (+102), and Garret Turpin (+95). Burke is still on his way to becoming underachiever of the season with a -108, followed by Tats and Sweet Scientist who are both performing 101 spots below their draft position.

Week 5 Matches Recap

Bisping Division - 2544 Points

H4axlko_medium

Despite We Came To Pick, They Came To Grapple's new replacement player scoring below average for the event, lanky's squad cruised to a victory and improved to 4-1 on the season. Leonard Garcia's Picking Accuracy only had two players above average, and picked a terrible time to turn in an underwhelming performance after the bad luck they had earlier in the season. The Bjorn Ultimatum did just enough to pull off the win against the Legion of Lurkers, keeping their playoff hopes alive for the moment. Scorecard's team is now back to the drawing board when it comes to finding a way to sneak into the Grand Prix.

Fitch Division - 2592 Points

Jlckvcm_medium

In the highest scoring division of the evening, I Can't Believe It's Not Horsemeat! came up short against The Fukers, and even though Andy Davis had a pick-misser on his roster, the guy would have to have had a record-setting performance in order to make a difference on the final W/L category. POW's team had only 5 players below average and put together one of the top 3 team point totals for the night. Being the first team mentioned so far who got revenge for a Week 2 loss, Dana White's Bail Bonds did enough to beat an inconsistent TACO COWS team, and gxc's bad season individually is not doing his squad any favors, despite KatGirl scoring above average for every event so far.

Bones Division - 2519 Points

P0cqtst_medium

In the least-scoring division of the night, and season in general for that matter, Bob Sapp's Bushido Spirit tore through the Tim Kennedy Thread Survivors, winning their match and becoming one of two teams that have taken first in team points for an event on multiple occasions. When they're on the same page, they're unstoppable, it just doesn't seem to happen often. In the other match, we saw Bloody Elbe finally get what they deserve, as they lose their first match of the season to the Birds of War, who had one of the lowest point totals of the night themselves. Lot of interesting stuff to look at in the division standings and playoff picture below now that these matches are wrapped up.

Division Standings/Playoff Picture

Oxmo0yp_medium

In the Bisping Division, We Came To Pick, They Came To Grapple holds a one-win lead against Bjorn Ultimatum, but none of the teams are officially incapable of reaching a top two spot; although Leonard Garcia's Picking Accuracy would not only have to win their matches but get a little help from the other teams around the league as well. The Fitch Division continues to be a mirror image of the Bisping one. The Bail Bonds are safe for now, and would clinch the playoffs with a win over The Fukers next week. The TACO COWS have to hope for a meltdown from the middle teams in the division. The Bones Division features two 4-1 teams at the top separated by points. Bob Sapp's Bushido Spirit could sneak into a top two spot if the Birds Of War and/or Bloody Elbe were to lose the last two games of the season, Josh's squad won both, and finished with a higher point total than the other two teams. Newt's Tim Kennedy Thread Survivors are officially fucked when it comes to earning a top six seed for the Grand Prix, and will have to make up a lot of ground in points if they even want a wildcard.

Pmktes9_medium

Since Bloody Elbe was given their first loss of the season by the Birds of War, but Sugel's squad was one of the lowest scoring teams on Saturday, Dana White's Bail Bonds sneaked into the #1 seed as I mentioned they could in the live discussion. A lot of the current seeds will most likely shift around by the next event, but it's important to point out that the difference in points between the #7 wildcard seed and last place is 132, less than the amount between the top and bottom scoring teams for UFC 157. What I'm saying is that it's still possible for any of you who are stuck at the bottom to make a last minute push. After holding down a wildcard spot all season, Leonard Garcia's Picking Accuracy has been kicked down to 9th based on a single bad performance, so remember how important these last two games are!

Ok, then. Andy Davis, if you want a replacement player, you'll have to email Spam or I about what you need to do to find one. Letting us know before I post the recap would have been a huge help to you, as it was for lanky last week.

We have another event this coming Saturday, UFC on Fuel TV 8: Silva vs. Stann, so go make your picks now. Read the live discussion I make for it, where I breakdown what's at stake for each team, or I'll start getting lazy with them like these recaps.

Follow me on Twitter where I make fun of you all behind your backs.

After this next set of matches, we'll be at Week 7, the last regular season event. In Week 7, the #1 and #4 teams in a division will compete, as well as the #2 and #3 teams, in order to end the regular season with as much drama as possible.

Pretty sure that's it for now, lanky leads the all-time leaderboards so I didn't feel like posting it. Soldiers dismissed.
