Re: MMA Thread

30-27 and ellenberger officially never gets a title shot ever for being tentative and not even trying to do anything but coast to three narrow 10-9 rounds

Re: MMA Thread

Reminiscent of his coast against Rocha. Just no urgency for a finish, at least that was understandable because he was scared to get tied up and tapped.

Re: MMA Thread

Hieron looked like an idiot in 1st round, dancing like he was winning the battle, what an idiot.

Re: MMA Thread

Hieron just had no urgency there at all when he was clearly losing. Honestly, I think Hieron deserves to be cut after that even though losing to Ellenberger in itself isn't that bad an offence. If he got KO'd, sure, but he was clearly losing a decision and didn't even try to take risks to win.

Re: MMA Thread

1.5u on browne plus 1u on the under at evens which has since been bet to -160ish

Also if browne wins I get an extra unit due to my 0.1u +919 parlay coming through

Nah, he doesn't deserve to get cut ffs. There are worse fighters than Hieron. He should be given 2 more chances imo. I mean, Ellenberger was at the top of the contender list(was 2 fights from title). Especially since this is his first fight in, let him settle down and take it from there.

Re: MMA Thread

Ya line was too high, I considered betting Silva but then figured eh if I just go with Browne ITD, which is how he's almost always gonna win, I'm gettin about the right price. Gah.

Luckily I tailed Chris' Bellator bets so despite breaking about even here I made some units.

Re: MMA Thread

These fighters with unbeaten records should be given more thought.

Re: MMA Thread

Going to finish the card +3u or so

Roll back to sitting on 53u, with my high point being 62ish a few weeks ago and a starting point of 15u *of my current units* about 14 months ago

Why b/c an extremely coordinated 5'9 HW knocked him out? Cain is cut from the same clothe too. They are the 2 modern day Fedor type guys. Elite HW's who could be LHW's

I know knee injury but after they sized up that first few mins I felt very good and thought it looked like at worst a flip for Silva

Re: MMA Thread

Yeah, nowhere did Browne show prior to the knee thingy that he was going to take this easily.

He lost to kongo but got a draw because of a point deduction.

I did say his flash KO of struve wouldn't happen too often, but meh.

I'd like to see Struve vs Bigfoot if they can't give him Werdum, I can see Struve picking him apart at range or tapping him on the ground, only problem is if Bigfoot gets ahold of him... it'll be lights out. Could be a fun fight and they're both down at the bottom of the top 10 atm so ranking wise it works

Yah went well. Just waiting to see what happens in this last fight. Our guy was crushing then got axe kicked in the dick while in guard, lol. Fight is getting stopped, apparently Prindle was warned not to groin kick, so waiting to see whether it's a DQ or a NC.

Would be a nice fight for sure, only problem for struve, at least in his 2 last fights, he's a slow starter and doesn't really find his range that well in the 1st round.

Re: MMA Thread

Good and appropriate MU Swoop

I'd rather see that than Werdum. Give him Werdum after that
