Mauney's last name is pronounced "Mooh nee," but he might want to change it to money after his clutch performance at the Professional Bull Riders World Finals at the Thomas Center.

The only rider in PBR history to stay on all of his bulls for eight seconds at the Finals where he went 8 for 8 en route to the event title in 2009 Mauney went 6 for 6 this year to overtake two time defending world champion Silvano Alves for the first world title of his eight year career.

"Finally," said Mauney, who had previously finished second twice and third twice in the world standings. "It was a dogfight right down to the very last bull.

"I take my hat off to Silvano. He tried his guts out."

Due to an illegal slap of his bull on Saturday night, Alves left the building without his unprecedented third straight gold buckle.

The Brazilian settled for second place in the event and second in the world standings, 977.5 points behind Mauney who is the first American to win the world title since 2009, when he finished 594 points behind Kody Lostroh in the closest championship race in PBR history.

In a back and forth battle, Mauney who entered the Finals trailing Alves by 538.5 points took a narrow lead (by 30.75 points) for the first time this season Thursday before again falling behind Alves (by 19.75) on Friday.
