No Fear Earn Some Cred ContestHey, guess what today is? It’s our birthday. Since pretty much none of you knew this site existed when I launched it one year ago today, I figured we’d have to suck it up and be the poor lonely guy who has to remind everyone it’s his birthday. Anyways, now you know, and (hopefully) later tonight we’re going to unveil a pretty big surprise in honor of it. So if the site’s down for awhile, there’s a pretty good reason for it. But for now, since the UPS man isn’t knocking my door down with presents, we thought someone around here should get a gift, so we’re going to give one of you a little something.

Here’s the deal. No Fear is running their first-ever under the tab code promotion called Earn Some Cred, whose grand prize is a trip to a Mixed Martial Arts event. You crack open specially marked cans of No Fear Energy drink, find the code under the tab, enter that code at and start “earning cred” for No Fear gear. And if you’re really lucky, you could win tickets to an MMA event.

Here’s where we come in. To help kick start the promotion, No Fear is giving away a pretty sweet prize pack (see image) to one of our loyal readers. Since there’s only one to give, we’re running a good ole’ fashioned pick ’em contest for this weekend’s Strikeforce “Shamrock vs Diaz” card.

How it works
Leave a comment on this post or our staff preview and picks post we’ll publish on Friday with your picks of the five fights on the televised card. Specify the winner, how it ends, and what round it ends in.

  • 1 point for correctly picking the winner
  • 3 points for correctly picking the winner and how it ends (TKO/KO or Submission)
  • 5 points for correctly picking the winner, how it ends (TKO/KO or Submission) and what round it ends in
  • 4 points for correctly picking the winner by decision

Highest point total wins. For the tiebreaker, specify the exact time and round the Cyborg-Akano fight ends. Closest over or under wins the tiebreaker.

We’ll give you until 3PM ET on Saturday to get your picks in. Do not email them to us. Only comments left on this post or the staff picks post will be counted. Also, be sure to enter your real email address when you comment, otherwise we won’t be able to notify you if you win. The only catch is they can only ship to addresses in the United States, so if you’re in Canada or overseas, sorry, you’re out of luck, but you’re welcome to enter for bragging rights.

We’ll announce the winner on Monday. Good luck!
