    I think we all have slight leans and then 1-2 fights that we feel really confident about so the posts are mixed about it could go either way and a fight where we are shouting from the heavens on. Since he doesn't have any low key fights he posts about, you feel he comes across as cocky.

    I think you should give him a break as he usually is only is talking about his most confident bet, he IS real confident. If he was saying that about 8 fights then I could see why people are mad. Anyway I hope this just drops and we can start from a new beginning.

    Still trying to shake off the UFC 200 hangover boys...

    Best card of the year followed by a couple of losing events. Looking to get back on track tonight. Feel like there are some decent spots tonight....

    Perez
    Herman(Value)
    Pearson(Value)
    Hamilton
    Arzamendia

    Possible live bet on Lawler if Woodley has success early but cannot stop him.


    Let's do it.

    I was the one giving him a break. I sympathize, when I first saw this thread before we had our own forum, I thought it would be like most things UFC section, filled with trolls and dumb shit. So I was brash about the picks I was very confident in (Bisping over Leites, specifically). ive told him numerous times he can be knowledgeable, and in a much friendlier way tried to tell him he's going about the way he acts wrong. But he gets worse and worse with his ego, as evidenced by how he treated everyone and what he posted after UFC on FOX was over.

    Trust me, as I've told Robbie himself, I enjoyed our discussions before UFC on fox. I would like to see him stay productive instead of acting superior to everyone, but if that's the route he wants to go, so be it.

    But anyways, before EZ reminds us to just leave it alone lol I've said my peace. See you guys in an hour :)

    How have I treated everyone? I've gave winning picks. Not insulted anyone. Even after I won and had no bets left each time (both of my bets were early on in the card) I've said good luck to everyone for the rest of the card. I've been confident but not treated anyone badly

    ^^^Robbie knows his stuff. Joe B is right, he just needs to tone it down a little with his delivery. It doesn't even need to be a huge change. Just a slight tweak imo. The thing about this forum is that there's gonna be a lot of different personality types. Joe B and Oblivian have gotten into it here. I like both, and I know for damn sure my BR would be smaller if either weren't posting here. I'm pretty confident Robbie is gonna be a really good contributor here if he can just dial back the way he delivers his picks. I know it's because he's very confident in how he's capped them and that's great (and he's hit two nice dogs with very good analysis in his short time here let's be honest).

    Maybe I'm just the old guy, speeding toward 40 and without a TRT exemption LOL. I think everyone here is more than capable of getting along and sharing the shitload of knowledge we obviously have.

    I think there is some value in D Brown.

    Arzamendia has decent striking but no chin and is sloppy with his grappling. He smashed a can in his first fight on TUF but as soon as he faced adversity against Fuerte he wilted. Same thing happened with Polo. D Brown is nothing special, but he is a durable, experienced vet with finishing ability.

    Looking at cesar's record before TUF, his only win over a positive fighter is against Gasparzinho. He has a loss vs a 15-10 fighter and a split vs a 3-5 fighter.

    Alves is a tough matchup on 8 days notice and brown obv gassed, but Brown has had a 12 week camp for this fight, getting 2 months off from work to train full time. Brown doesn't have the best record either but has wins and loses to legit opponents.

    1 unit D brown straight, + a flyer on d brown itd in a parlay

    Like I said earlier man, it's dumbfounding you don't see why you would rub people the wrong way. When you decided to stroke your ego after last week, how many people quoted you and told you to chill in their own way? Whatever man, act how you want, it's all good
