    2 weeks gap and then this event is on a Sunday reminds me of the crying baby gif, but quick glance at the match ups very good should have some good back and forth action and live dogs with any luck.

    Donald will have a steep line vs the Brazilian cowboy though.

    So you didn't catch the, "stop typing to me, you idiot?" - Lets try again. Stop writing to me, as i consider you too stupid to communicate with, thanks.

    Again find it funny that absolutely no one has agreed with you, and told you to shut your mouth, while people has agreed with me. but nice statement though. Fucking idiot lol.

    I'm on Lineker as well, dude is basically the Tazmanien Devil and I doubt Garbrandt can deal with that at this point. He's been KO'ed before in the amateurs too.

    yea, shame

    but if he did break the rules with a totally voluntary action (i.e. weed) it's his own fault

    yea lineker-mccall was one of my TOP wins last year. was awesome.

    i'm on board w/that idea (lineker decision if the price is right) but i'm not sure if garbrandt can take this but one in maybe 3 or 4 tries. i appreciate the input, tho

    Just to touch on the legalization of P.E.D's. I genuinely do not understand how anyone can consider it "fair" to legalize them when you look at the whole picture. there is nothing fair about an unnaturally increased amount of brain trauma received , as a indirect result of using, It's not "fair" to the sport it's not "fair" for the future well being of the fighters, and it's not "fair" to their family, and their entire life after they retire.

    Is donald's replacement official? disappointed if it is Brazilian howboy, masvidal would be a sick fight, nelson would be interesting too.

    Heyyyy someone whos not me whos not afraid to share their opinion lol. Never even mind all of those valid consequences you pointed out, just the immediate public relations nightmare alone that it would cause would severely tarnish the sport, but some people can't be reasoned with.

    Yup Cowboy vs Cowboy is official. Trying to stay positive about it, it should be fireworks

    Yeah American Cowboy will probably be unplayable. Maybe his itd line will be okay. Probably not.

    There is honestly no point arguing with that guy vis a vis steroid legalization. It's beyond a retarded idea. Like you said just put any moral or health concerns aside.

    Here you have the UFC, desperate to become more mainstream. Scratching and clawing to get Sportscenter to cover it, etc. They are going to go in the direct opposite direction that the other major North American sports plus the olympics have gone when it comes to PED's? So they can get shoved farther into the "niche" category? The UFC's PR dept would literally FORBID them from ever publicly even hinting that it might be a decent idea.

    I was thinking the over/under is the way to go with this one, Lines should be out in a day or 2 anyway. pulling this out of my ass but cowboy 1.25ish?

    EDIT:forgot it'll be 5 rnds, o/u 1.5 at about evens?

    Oh if it's 1.5 at evens I will hammer the over. The tko loss to RDA aside, Cerrone is tough as hell but a slow starter. Hard to see him getting stopped early by Brazilian Cowboy. And I don't see him starting much faster than he normally does.

    yeah think i was being optimistic there, I'm rubbish at predicting props, much better at predicting line movement after they're released. o/u 2.5 seems more likely for somewhere around evens, maybe a bit lower even.

    That sounds more realistic. 2.5 at evens is a no play for me most likely. I can only see myself playing Cerrone itd if odds are good or Brazilian Cowboy ML if odds are just completely bonkers like he's +650 or something silly.

    It's fair, because it evens the playing field. Is it fair for someone to get his brain bashed in by somebody who is on drugs, while he has no ability to be.

    Ask Michael Bisping about that one.

    Worst part is I'm not even saying legalize it. NEVER said that in any post. I'm just staying that would be the only way to even the playing field, as people that are smart / has the money is going to be on either way, and this silly USADA shit isn't going to change anything. Ofcourse it can't practically happen in the real world either in any capacity, that much is obvious.

    there's so much wrong with this post, even if I take out the valid points against it, that others and I made that you have ignored, there's still a lot wrong here.

    You say it can't practically happen in the real world and that much is obvious. What world were you talking about before? Because I'm pretty sure everyone else isn't talking about make believe land.

    You say Michael bisping has no ability to be on drugs. what?

    Then you say "Worst part is I'm not even saying legalize it. NEVER said that in any post" when I never said otherwise. I'm insinuating that you believe it's fair to let everyone be on drugs. But what's to stop "people that are smart / has the money" (delicious irony :p) from getting better drugs than the rest?

    Then to imply these stringent new protocols aren't going to change anything, whilst flat out ignoring the numerous busts that have been made, and the frankly drastic changes in physique of many top fighters since the new testing was implemented, and the dire consequences it can have for a fighters reputation/confidence/career is straight up backward.

    But you said that you never said we Should legalize it? So then what's this?

    Ok but that's it for me. Maybe we should just leave this clown alone guys, he's probably trolling at this point
