Re: MMA Thread

Well my first lean won but didn't bet it. Got a little Arlovski +130 but not a big bet might add some more although price is worse now. I hope he has enough left to beat Shamil. Good chance he loses a split via judging bias if its close tho

Re: MMA Thread

Added more Arlovski, diluted my price a bit, let's do it - i'm scared of a robbery in this one, but I think Arlovski should be a small fav not a small dog on skillset

Looks like the Krylov price has moved back a bit, still ahead of Pinny price but barely when it was a full arb a couple hours ago. Hopefully he gets it done.

Hunt price is too good to be real so i'm passing, +200 to a pickem is insane if it's not a hidden injury or 'something else' happening when Hunt's the bigger name

Re: MMA Thread

Close first round, Arlovski won on damage but I assume Abdurakhimov gets it for the TD and stall in Russia.

Re: MMA Thread

Arlovski forgot how to defend takedowns I feel like this is headed to an Abdurakhimov decision a lot

Re: MMA Thread

Arlovski stole that round. This is going to be a fun little card.

Re: MMA Thread

Abdurakhimov fading a bit. Ironically Abdurakhimov gets saved by the bell potentially but landed more damage in the round, but Arlovski with 2 late takedowns

Probably 2 to Adburakhimov in Russia but Arlovski should have a cardio edge I hope

Could be 1-1 hopefully both rounds very close

In before Arlovski wins r3 and loses a split decision because Russia

Re: MMA Thread

Adburakhimov via eye poke and gnee to groin

Arlovski should just not continue and take the draw because he's not winning the decision in Russia even though all 3 rounds close

Re: MMA Thread

Why did I stay up for this main card

I assume Adburakhimov wins? I feel like Arlovski may get r2 on some cards but I actually think he has a better case for winning r1. I have it 29-28 Abdurakhimov but expecting unanimous 30-27s. Robbery not out of the question in my favour. Terrible fight. Arlovski fights post-Browne just haven't been good for the most part

On what we saw Abdurakhimov small fav seems right, but he's a terrible fighter and it's embarrassing he's 'top 10'

Re: MMA Thread

Wow got wrecked by the late steam there. Guess i'm done with serious MMA betting other than big events, i'm in the red for the year despite being significantly in the green in almost every other sport I bet. At least one of my two bets was small, 0-2 for the card.

In theory Hunt should win here but I expect Oleinik to because of the wacky line movement but who knows, would enjoy seeing Hunt get a walk off KO.

Re: MMA Thread

lol glad I didn't bet Hunt, should have just blindly trusted the steam evidently on that one

Thoroughly disappointing card for me both to bet and as a fan hopefully 229 is better.

Pretty sure Johnson was the only guy to beat a Russian on the whole card today

Truly disgusting and like fighters refs should also be fined, suspended or even axed for such poor judgment.

Very hard to watch a man who has given 10 years of loyal service to the UFC be treated in such a manner.

Re: MMA Thread

Backed Barao at 1.8.
He has dropped off a cliff since USADA but he has been fighting top level competition the majority of the time.

Willing to back him against a newcomer who has a few losses on the regional circuits in recent years.
Plus the fight is in Brazil so if it goes to a decision then if its relatively close he gets the nod.

Re: MMA Thread

That Mark Hunt fight against Aleksei Oleinik was weird. Felt the sharps who were on Oleinik had done their money in but it seemed like Mark Hunt remembered he wasn't supposed to win in Russia or something like that.

I want to bet Khabib but get the feeling that he's not supposed to win. Feel it's possibly the sharps (Khabib) vs. public money (Conor).

Re: MMA Thread

Seriously how is Conor going to win? He already used his 1 time vs Aldo...

Mendez really ragdolled him, and Conor looked fatigued vs him, obv Mendez was even more tired but only because he didn't have a camp.

Khabib is twice as powerful, and a whole lot more of a pressure fighter. I really think Conor will get exposed in this fight, I mean Nate already exposed him in their first fight, and Nate is an average fighter with a great chin, that's all. So many fighters have dominated him and Conor could barely win the 2nd fight.

All this talk about how special Conor is, or Chael talking his bull****, on we just don't know how good Conor is blah blah, all this is to promote and keep up the appearance of the golden goose. He's the posterboy of the UFC, I wonder how far they'd go to keep this bull**** left hand of God up.

I wouldn't be surprised if both Eddy and Nate threw their matches, perhaps a bit far-fetched but both seem to just drop once he connected, and Nate for sure got hit a ton in that 1st fight and didn't drop once, yet in the 2nd he fell so often, yet never seemed dazed.

Eddy just didn't even throw any volume and didn't even attempt to wrestle.
Nate fought a very weird fight, the 2nd time, it really looked like he was holding back.

mmmm that's your choice buddy...
I won't bet the house on it...is't risky ,i dont think he can take a punch anymore!! i mean vs anybody that know the state of his chin loll they will go for it !
skill wise is far ahead...he's like a 8 degree black belt in mma lol
