Placing $200 on volk (& maybe another $100 on "draw"). The odds makers are fukkin WRONG.

i don't know bro, Ortega was seconds from submitting volk at 145. makachev will prob toss em.

I don't really know either...but I don't think it'll be as lopsided as the odds folks seem to think. Same for burns & masvidal.

Agreed with Jimbo, even Volk said he was ready to tap during that Ortega fight. Always a bold move betting against a Dagestani fighter, but Volkanovski's as tough as they come, so it should be a good scrap.

It's funny, I wouldn't make the bet if the odds were more tepid (as they should be). To bet on the Dagestani in this instance is to risk a lot for a little. They have similar records/experience & dissimilar styles.

Conversely, the odds for Pereira v adesanya & Jones v gane are appropriately tepid.

Who are you banking on for Pereira v. Adesanya 2? I'm rooting for Pereira, but that last fight was close and Adesanya almost had him. My money's on Gane over Jones, only because Jones has been out of the game for awhile and hasn't fought at Heavyweight. With that being said, I'm rooting for Jones.

I am not putting money on either of those, rooting for Pereira, he's local & fukkin good. Made a couple dollars on their last fight, that was good enough for me. Jones & Gane is especially difficult to call. I wanna say Gane, but won't underestimate Jones.

If masvidal loses, his career is over lol

His fight with Covington was the worst. Hopefully he bounces back after that trainwreck.

Burns is a tough match up for Masvidal, he's basically a stronger Colby and Masvidal ain't getting any younger

Colby made Jorge so fukkin mad that Jorge smashed him on the street. I'd be pissed too...that leaning & dragging is really the cheesiest way to win (but I kinda get it against masvidal, dude is explosive, you gotta slow him down somehow). I kinda wish they didn't grant points for that, but I get it...it is "controlling" the fight, just cheesy...

Khabib always did the same thing. I guess it's still a win, but it's lame.

Tomorrow, my dudes. I decided to cut my wagers in half since the odds are so handsome (this way when i lose, it only hurts half as bad).

Fortune favors the bold man!
