    I do. Because I don't have any proof, she's never failed a test, I don't have insider information on her camp, etc. It's all speculation. I'm also not a scientist or doctor and despite what I think I know off of my university education and the "eye test", I still don't really know.

    I should only hope I get called out more often for shitty analysis. It's happened before and it'll happen again. Happy to have those around who can keep dumb thoughts from growing out of control.

    Askarov bettors aren't worried about his bottom game in what he likely needs to be a grappling heavy fight given he will be getting outvolumed standing? Only have a small bet on Elliot, but may have to add if this car accident shit keeps juicing Askarov's line.

    The amount of non-style matchup and skill related content that seems to effect peoples bets on here is scary. Pertinent info should account for 95%+ of your capping. Minor injuries that we know nothing about, how jacked someone looks at weigh-ins, age with no sign of a decline, etc. should not be such big factors gents.

    Do you know anything about physiology and the long term effects of taking blunt force trauma to the brain? Do you know or have read any peer reviewed journals on hormones and concussions? Serious question. This is why I keep referencing her long combat career.

    No one ever overlooked Holly's skill level in these discussions . But how can you just ignore age + damage? Especially accumulative damage and being 38 in a combat sport?

    The forum is here to keep wild ideas in check and keep these circle jerks from happening on the wrong fighters.

    someone has to be the bad guy

    Because I don’t personally think it’s going to matter in this fight.

    It’s wmma and we are not talking about girls like Amanda nunes. How many girls has Pennington knocked out?

    what evidence do you have that her being 38 is somehow going to Magically decline her skills enough to where you have a perceived betting edge? What examples do you have?

    Wmma is highly unpredictable itself. But you can't fluke out on physiology. I don't know the # off my head if any at all of Raquels KO wins. But the fact that you keep asking that shows me you have zero knowledge of brain trauma and age and the effect it has on every human body, female or male.

    Holly has had a boxing, kickboxing and MMA career. A long one.

    It doesn't mean Raquel is going to KO Holly at all, Im amazed that you're so focused on that. I can't give 4 years of university education on physiology over sherdog. I give up lol.

    you also can’t give 25 years of mma history lessons. I don’t need to be a doctor to know you don’t have an edge on rocky with these lines.

    I don't know if you're trolling or not, but this is really silly. There is no comparison between the amount of head trauma women take in combat sports versus what men do. Across her boxing, kickboxing, AND MMA careers, Holm has been knocked out a whopping 4 times. Moreover, a great many of her fights feature her receiving little to no damage whatsoever.

    Anywho, there are (genuine) points to be made for both fighters in this rematch, and I'm not risking a huge amount with my bet, but yeah, a lot of these narratives are irrelevant or misleading.

    Damn! There goes my 0.2u bet on a draw at +5500, the first such prop bet I've ever placed.

    Yeah big call on the eye test.
    That said she is a decade older than me with two less testicles and I'd be willing to bet a higher testosterone than me.
    I'm no mma fighter so either I need to step my workouts up or get with her "conditioning coach"
    Well that and training at Jackson Wink I know she is very close with Johnny "Picograms" Jones.

    so because you've watched 25 years of mma = holly is impervious to the physiological effects of age and head trauma, both having a strong documented correlation with the decline in an athlete's most basic motor functions and neurological pathways to give Raquel a good chance at beating her in an mma fight. okay.

    Rocky might be up there with Holly in terms of damage what with a debilitating injury outside the octagon plus a couple of wars and a recent ass whooping by Nunes.

    I’ll take my 25 years over your 4 years of schooling and conjecture, thx Alex

    why don’t you see if you can do an mri and study holly’s brain so you can more effectively cap the fight, professor?

    I had a good price on Dawson and a good price on Grasso, such a shame.
