    Same plays for me, but at prices a bit worse. Was hoping Sakara would open a dog, happy to see that

    I like a good dog. I put just under 1u on Bellurado at +600. Both guys are very young and undefeated. This will be a close fight I think. If Bellurado can weather the storm early in r1 then he has an okay shot.

    Yeah good call I shoulda waited. Also just finished watching some clips of both guys. Mckee looks really good and Danilo looks meh but I guess thats why thel ine is where it is.

    oh yeah my bad I didn't scroll down to see amateur fights. His records shows 5-0 which only includes pro fights.

    PS. I have no fucking clue if this will be a close fight....I just always tell myself that when betting a sizable dog :) I am pretty darn sure Mckee wins becuase he looks really smooth and comfortable in there.

    Aren't amateur fights in MMA essentially un-paid real fights? I see them in King of the Cage all the time on MavTV. Those guys and gals are really fighting and sometimes getting hurt. Exhibition makes it sound like they just playing around to amuse the audience without going 100%.

    Think every state is different. In NJ there are no elbows, no ground and pound to the head, and certain submissions are barred. You also used to have to use bigger gloves until a few years ago.

    Three minute rounds seems the main appreciable difference I see from KOTC fights in Nevada and many other states. They even go five rounds for amateur championship fights and you see people get knocked out cold and caught in all manner of crazy submissions at that level. It's no exhibition.

    Fighters treat them as real fights, though they are often grossly unprepared and don't realize it.

    I'm on Pitbull and convinced myself to play Rogers. I like his new game of mixing in takedowns.

    so 5d is showing the bellator fights as starting on their spike TV timeslot, but that would be like 4 am in italy... or later... so i've just been assuming all along that the fights will be saturday night in italy (which would mean saturday morning/early afternoon in the states)
