Re: MMA Thread

Adding a little Makhachev decision +200 to go w all my others

Probably done for the card now but action on 6 fights not bad and a lean I didn't get to that won. Would be nice if this is one of those scoop cards I have a good feeling about it

Re: MMA Thread

Aliev looking great; more power; better strength and wrestling. Probably would have finished if he disengaged to strike rather than go for a TD in r1

Not a lock or anything but clear 10-9 Aliev to start

Re: MMA Thread

Looks like a straightforward Aliev decision

Very promising, 2-0 start assuming nothing crazy and two legs on my parlay left as well (Evolev and Jotko)

Re: MMA Thread

Great segment there with Hardy and Felder demonstrating/explaining the ezekiel choke

They should do that with a grapplers 'signature' move on every card with some fighters explaining it in a minute segment for the casual fans

Dominick Cruz & Gilbert Melendez demonstrated OSP's Von Flue choke very well on one of the UFC's shows on ESPN, I think it was called Unlocking Victory.

Re: MMA Thread

Always nice to bink a 4 leg parlay as well as each leg individually

Well into freerolling the card with Reem (who i'm less and less confident in with every Russian win granted I bet on all the Russians) and Makhachev decision pending

Might find a small sweat on the others

no chance that fight goes to the judges, don't think there will be any home crowd advantage.

Re: MMA Thread

No bet here, obv think Shev wins but hoping Roxy does since everyone has to love Roxy. Kyrgystani-Peruvian is an unusual combination.

Can get about evens on it not going the distance, GL

I'm okay w/ losing that if I do as it's my smallest bet of the card but obv would be cool to scoop

Re: MMA Thread

Roxy's like the female Darren Elkins only not quite as good but still; no physical gifts but relentless pressure and the heart of a grinder

Hope she wins. Wonder if Shev's being overrated a bit because of who her sister is. Roxy is way better than she was a few years ago though but still gonna be a tough fight even though r1 went pretty well

Re: MMA Thread

Was thinking about selling my Reem bet but was just looking through his record and he hasn't been submitted since 2006 and that was by Fabricio Werdum who he beat twice since (granted in close fights)... how did I not know he's only been submitted once in 62 fights; granted with his chin going for subs probably isn't in most opponents gameplans

Roxy has got this somehow. Crazy.

So happy for Roxy. She was on a mission. That was the right decision.

Re: MMA Thread

All the Russians winning is making me scared for Overeem even though on paper no way he's supposed to lose this fight, of the ranked fighters this is literally his best MU

Re: MMA Thread

If Makhachev wins this Tsarukyan is going to be IMMENSE value in his next fight almost regardless of the price against whatever unlucky sub par sucker draws him next if he's 0-1 in the UFC

Seems like it could be 20-18 Makhachev or 19-19 in Russia, idk, you can tell the grappling levels here are just off the charts considering Makhachev is sort of a mid level name and i'd never heard of Tsarukyan before today any LW fighter who doesn't have elite TDD is going to get absolutely grapple****ed Khabib style by either of them

Re: MMA Thread

Makhachev too good in the end looks like I bink the decision prop too unless judges go crazy

Tsaryukan is gonna be a max bet in his next fight almost regardless of who he fights the market's going to underrate him for sure especially if the fight isn't for a while

Re: MMA Thread

5 in a row now

If Overeem can finish it off we get the elusive perfect card. Granted I only bet one underdog prop and a couple pickemish fights but i'll take it

I keep tossing up between Reem Dec or TKO being the value (obv TKO is way way way more common) so just sticking with the straight up I have. He's too short to whack it especially in Russia but as high as i've been on Oleinik, Overeem is basically the fighter you'd design to beat him, only with a better chin I guess. If you had limited skill points, you'd basically make an Overeem though. Hard to sub, good technical rangy standup, and Oleinik while yes, he has the power to put Reem out, he's way slower than Reem and has worse standup technique and doesn't exactly have Ngannou power.

Re: MMA Thread

Wow, Oleinik has a chin... and some terrible striking technique but still scary as hell when it's Reem absorbing shots

This is not the fight I expected really but it's wildly entertaining and it ended the way I thought it would roughly

6-0 card; woulda been 7-0 if I started watching soon enough for Abdurakhimov

Hope you all crushed it too and on to the next one!

Oleinik wading forward is actually not a bad move but his technique is just terrible it's like watching a low level women's fighter trying to throw punches at Overeem, but it sort of worked for a while until it turned out taking knees to the face is not a winning strategy

I think the odds may just have been about right with Reem at the -250 range given his chin though given what we saw but who knows

Very entertaining fight of fights overall, despite a lack of star power this card really delivered, would recommend a watch to anyone not watching due to weird hours.

Re: MMA Thread

Good call out of Volkov imo; JDS rematch is risky and does nothing for him and he 100% never wants any part of Ngannou or Blaydes ever again. Cain could work if Cain is shot which we don't know he is, but if he's not and Ngannou just caught him Cain would end Overeem's career

Volkov fight is winnable for both guys and they can set it up to main event the next Russia/Europe card if it's a fight night, or co-main it if it's a legit PPV with Khabib headlining in Russia

Very happy I stayed up to 5:30am for this one

I'd be surprised if Overeem ducked anyone.

Cain needs to be the one worried about his career. His is far closer to ending than Overeem's. Wait, does Cain even have a career anymore? He has just 1 win in over 5 years.

Roxy just exposed the Shevchenkos. Valentina better keep hiding out at 125lbs because Sarge will break her in half if and when she finally gets her man hands on her.

My thought exactly. Oleinik is a crafty veteran but Overeem is also and he is no slouch on the ground. On paper it was a terrible matchup but Oleinik fought a great fight.
