    Uriah Faber's claims that TJ looks like a prepubescent teenager since USADA came in don't concern you? ;)

    Holy f*cking shit I just realized July has 6 UFC events.

    I just booked a party house on airbnb for the entire week for the 3 card extravaganza on July 8-10th leading up to UFC 200.

    It's going to feel like christmas in July O_O

    I've already bet TJ but I still kinda agree with you lol. I think TJ will reach -250 or something.

    Raphael is a well rounded fighter with vicious leg kicks. However, he has the attributes that TJ tends to exploit, flat footed and easy to back up against the cage. To win this I think he will have to find TJs legs over and over enough to severely hinder his movement. Raphael has good counters (esp. knees) but thats against stationary targets. I think its a great matchup for TJ on the feet and even though its likely gonna go to a dec i see TJ hurting him bad.

    Also, long layoff, 34 years old and first fight post USADA for Raphael. He was/is very muscular for the weight class.

    TJ decisions Assunciao with ease, sadly.

    His legkicks will not work, Tj's style of keeping his feet under him and jumping in and out while switching stances, makes it basically impossible to catch his legs with kicks, Baraos kicks is sharper and quicker, and he had no success.

    Tj is too quick for him.

    Mayhem apparently weighed in 24lbs over. If anyone is on him, buy out I think.

    Does Bisping have any realistic path to victory here? He throws more volume for sure but is there any way he can do this and win 3 rounds? Have parlayed the shit out of Rockhold at around -500.

    Stays on his bike and uses his patented pitter patter point sparring technique that has served him so well over the years? That or Cockhold suffers some freak mishap in the cage. There is no other way.

    Well Bisping has had a few 5 rounders in recent times, he is always known to push the pace and never tire. We know his cardio is his greatest asset, granted he hasn't had much prep for this one but let's give him the benefit of the doubt and say he is still fit as fook like. Sure it's possible for him to fight smart and keep his distance for the first couple of rounds, then if he's lucky Rockhold may start to tire more than him and he can pick up the pace and steal the last 3 with volume. Highly unlikely scenario yes but not completely unthinkable. Too unlikely to risk a lot but perhaps a little just for "a laugh".

    I think debuting in the UFC in 2016 is a good bet, if they sign him he can be on the UFC Hamburg card (3rd September).

    TJ is +400 to hold the bantamweight title at the end of 2016 with 888/Unibet. Seems a good price if he is likely to get the rematch this year?

    Just noticed that the euro final is also the same weekend as ufc 200

    So there's the euro from June 10-July 10 ,plus all the ufcs between now and then, then there's a card on July 7, 8, 9, and I think the 13th or 14th with the euro final on July 10

    Damn! Think I'm gonna deposit a little $$ lol

    Awesome interview, as always with the Diaz's

    Should be epic in Cleveland, great fight. Will predict even odds I guess?
