Necessity forces me to post the Verdict without first posting Judges' Comments. Due to extreme emergencies in my life, today, and the late scores (understandable) from a few Judges, I just don't have the time to go through all the comments and reformat them for publication here, right now. If the Judges wish to post them on their sites, great. If they choose to email them to all interested parties, wonderful. I can't do them right now.
This Battle was very impressive on both sides - my Iron Blogger had a very strong debut against a Challenger who is, arguably, our toughest, yet (sorry, Dan).
And now, the Verdict.
A hard-fought Battle to the very end, both Combatants making powerful cases for their respective side. Challenger Bryan S bringing the heat, but new Iron Blogger Green shows she's more than capable of filling her position.
Who takes it? Whose spleen vents supreme?

It's The Challenger! Let's take a look at the scores.
Judge Pineapple Girl scores it 65-56 for the Iron Blogger
Judge Patton scores it 62-56 for the Iron Blogger
Judge Jheka scores it 75-62 for The Challenger
And Judge CDT Michael scores it 82-69 for The Challenger
A split decision on part lines 2 Left to 2 Right, The Challenger sqeaks it out on an 11 point difference. Down to the wire, another tight Battle! Congratulations to our second Challenger to get the win against an Iron Blogger!
