    Cutting to 145lbs for the first time in a decade and a half, testing positive for PEDs the fight before last, tail-end of his career... I would've definitely picked him to beat Stephens a few years back, but now I'm not so sure. I'm passing on this one for now .

    Good points...I've been looking at his career...he pretty much has fought once per year, for the last three years.

    How has Jeremy Stephens looked?

    Stephens has looked decent, despite dropping 4 of his last 7. He still carries lots of power and is hard to take down. I expect it to be a close one that plays out on the feet for the most part, but it's hard to say what Gilbert has left in the tank and how he'll react to the weight cut. Depending on line movement, playing either side as a decent sized underdog wouldn't be a bad play, IMO.

    What @chemmy said. I'm happily on stephens near evens. Also stabbed at stephens rd3.

    Very much a fade of Melendez.

    That's what I meant fwiw, that RDA is probably going to take this so people who back the likelier-fighter-to-win should wait until after weigh ins.

    Just coming in here to say again Magny is going to stomp RDA, and that this card sucks.

    Yea. I think Gil is the type of fighter that can beat Stephens if he's in shape

    Went somewhat heavy on schevy. Her line will get blown up. Just like last time, will be looking to live bet her as nunes is a front runner. Schevy tko +644 hit that small rds3-5 small

    Small play on johnson itd -102. Borg is tough but johnson has been finishing just about everybody. Pretty drastic step up in competition here for him. On the under 4.5 at -105. Probably will do rds 3-5 as well

    Parlay Johnson itd with schevy itd. Hard to see nunes lasting 5 rounds with her cardio, I mean, sinus issues

    Going to have to think a bit in these other fights. Cejudo is definitely not worth the juice but probably controls the fight while avoiding the submission. Favor the over

    Stephens has been more active but I could see Melendez taking a decision here. Moderately heavy on the over

    Magny could give rda problems with his volume and length. Pretty significant size advantage here. On magny by decision at +274

    Mcmann will probably be -300 here. Parlay fodder

    Curious to see what Tyson Pedro's line is

    Kajan getting fed to Adriano Martins has gotta be WME's way of thanking him for shooting off at the mouth about fighter pay at the athlete's retreat, right? Kajan Johnson may very well get murdered here.

    I like Magny here straight off the page,

    Size difference should be massive and I just see this being a Magny jab and run battle

    People on Reddit and in general are stupid. Antibiotics are for bacterial infections. Most sinus problems are from viruses.

    In short, antibiotics don't work for sinus infections.

    I've had them my whole life. I don't think nunes is bsing about not being able to train 100%

    yeah antibiotics never did a damn thing to help my chronic sinusitus. just made me feel sick.

    there is no way you can train 100% with bad sinuses. not even 80%.
