    may as well just close my eyes and click buttons on any event in NY, bunch of fucking bums in every aspect. Judges and refs are complete jokes. He was willing to let holm eat another after the bell shot to take a POINT instead of DQing that stupid bitch's ass.

    Terrible event for me overall. Would've ended up in the black if Brunson had gotten the nod. Other than that I pretty much lost money on all fights I played except Belal, Jacaré and GDR. It's actually kind of amazing I'm not down more than 5.7u.

    Before tonight I had profited 3/3 events this year so it's not a terrible setback, it just feels disheartening to lose on the card where you spend the most time actually deciding on your bets. I think I'll go back to a more livebetting heavy approach for the next card or two.

    Grats to whoever came out on top tonight, I think we all deserved to get payed sitting through that shitty event.

    I'm saying that because I think it was obvious. I would be saying the same thing if Holm was the won landing the effective strikes for 20 minutes while GDR hit air and struggled to take her down. Just looked on MMAdecisions, surprised the media is so bad at scoring fights. This is honestly weird to me, I don't understand why people think Holm even won 2 rounds.

    +4 units for this event. unfortunately my one unit freeroll got cancelled with mccall but i'll take it. put 0.2 units on silva after the fight +600 because well judges.... I feel sorry for the people that got screwed on that.

    Had a killer night! Know most of the thread was on Holm so hope everyone ended the night positive. You group of guys and gals have really helped me make a lot of money lately.

    Turned my BR of $500 into $4300 this 2017 so far

    Edit - Would have been up another $430 if my over 7.5 decision bets didn't void cause of Ian...

    I am so glad that Holm lost. She is one of the most annoying & least entertaining fighters in MMA. I hope the buy rate for this card is god awful for the UFC pulling this shit in NYC.

    Overall good betting night. Brunson decision hurt, but not as much as my confidence in Brown did. He didn't land nearly as forcefully as I thought he would, and got schooled overall MMA wise. Other then that nothing to complain about solid going into next Sunday.

    2u Belal @ + 100 - Win
    2u Jacare + GT @ +105 - WIn
    1u Nover @ +175 - Loss
    0.5u Silva + Belal @ + 330 - Win
    2u Holly @ EVS - Loss
    1u Glover sub + Belal + Holly @ +3000 - Loss

    LB Play -

    2u Belal @ +130 - Win
    1u Holly @ + 330 - Loss

    All in all, up 2u. Not great, but not bad either.

    Surprised people are saying Brunson won, i bet on him and thought for sure he lost, how did he win rounds 1 or 2?
    He may have been landing good shots but was backing up all the time and looked really bad with his failed tds.

    All the big favourites came through.
    Glover + Jacare ITD was free money IMO.

    My only real hiccup tonight was Brown. I had a little on Silva TKO but oh well I'm just happy that he won.

    I really wonder where Holly will go from here, only thing I am certain is that there will be no more main events for her

    Fuck the fuck off

    upload_2017-2-12_1-24-32.png

    That was placed prior to McCall backing out. I technically do not know if it would have hit or not, but FUCK 9/10 decisions and you damn well know the most likely result in the McCall fight would have been a decision. Fuck McCall so bad, I hope to never see him fight again


    upload_2017-2-12_1-26-7.png

    Who the FOOK was that ref?? Why was he the main event... If he took a point which should have 100% been taken away this would have hit also



    Oh and I'm not saying he was a clear cut winner or anything, but in the end I had 3 units on Jim Miller at about +350 and that fight could have gone either way, IMO. I also had the draw in that fight to win $500...


    What could have been one of my best nights ever, of course did not happen. No, not even close... I lost 0.86u overall...

    Hope you guys did good at least... I wasn't reading the thread
