UFC 137: Out-Predict the BJPENN.COM Chief Editor and win FREE “The Hammer” movie memorabilia


Alright Penn Nation, you have until the start of the UFC 137 Spike TV Prelim Special to put down your predictions for this Saturdays UFC pay-per-view event and out-predict, me, Pedro Carrasco.

All you have to do is put down your predictions in the same exact format as I have done and if you pick more winners than myself I will ship you off your prize. (Be sure to include your email at the end of your post so I can contact the winners.) If I beat our entire community than the first five people to post the closest results to my own will get the prize pack donated by the good guys from “The Hammer”.

Please Note: if submissions are not in the exact format that I have done they will be ignored. Submissions after the Spike Prelims Special of UFC 137 starts will also be ignored.

As you can see at the end of this entry I have laid out my predictions for the main card of UFC 137 and the first five-posters to submit more accurate results than myself will win a free gift pack provided by the guys behind the Matt Hamill biographical movie coming out in theaters on October 27th.

On October 27 the film will be released theatrically nationwide. Additionally, ARC Entertainment will be heading VOD/DVD/BluRay distribution and Archstone Distribution will be heading international distribution of the film. TapouT and Purple Communications have joined as marketing partners.

Based on the life of UFC fighter Matt Hamill, The Hammer is a coming-of-age drama about the first deaf wrestler’s journey to win a National Collegiate Championship. Raised among those with the ability to hear, Matt finds himself no less an outsider amidst the Deaf community. But through sheer determination, he turns what could be a disability into an asset, and in the process, serves as an inspiration for both those who can hear and those who cannot.

“The Hammer is sure to enlighten every movie-goer, from sports fanatics to romantics to viewers looking for a feel-good movie,” said Doug Kluthe and Evan Saxon, Partners
at D & E. “It is a story that is sure to open up the eyes and hearts of audience members with its against-all-odds spirit.”

“Following in the footsteps of movies such as Rudy and Rocky, we’re thrilled to finally share Matt’s remarkable underdog story with the world,” said Eben Kostbar and Joseph McKelheer, writers and producers of the film.

The film stars deaf actors Russell Harvard (There Will Be Blood) and Shoshannah Stern (Lie to Me, Weeds, Jericho) as Matt Hamill and Kristi Hamill, and Raymond J. Barry (Justified, Walk Hard) as Matt’s grandfather. Written and produced by Joseph McKelheer (Godspeed) and Eben Kostbar, The Hammer was the recipient of The AFI Film Festival’s Breakthrough Audience Award, the Cleveland Film Festival’s American Independent Award and the Heartland Film Festival’s Crystal Heart Award. It has swept its festival run, receiving awards at 8 of 8 festivals, including the Audience Awards at Newport Beach, Florida, Miami, and Maui Film Festivals. The film’s score was composed by iZLER (Shameless, Revenge) and has been nominated for the Discovery of the Year Award at the World Soundtrack Awards in Ghent.

The director of the film is Oren Kaplan, who has been working for Disney as a web and TV series director since 2008. Oren’s recent projects include an online prequel to the Disney movie Prom, an Xbox 360 commercial campaign with Selena Gomez, and an original animated show for Disney.com about a paper family living in Los Angeles. His online work has amassed tens of millions of views across the web and is regularly featured on MTV, Comedy Central, ABC Family, and others. The Hammer is Oren Kaplan’s feature directorial debut.
