    Ha Conor dedicating the fight to his "Ma"
    I'm dead xD, that's a script flip if I've seen it.
    Any of you Bovada players those Masvidal possibly Usman call out props looking really good. If he gets the win he just called out the WW division. For the media or not, you know the Irishman likes belts. Maybe the UFC buys him some gold suspenders eventually, might help with that funny walk.

    Mazo is a giant, much bigger than JJ.

    Conor seems a lot more hyped up now, definitely in fight mode, he's going to come out very fast, under 1.5 is looking safe.

    For anyone in the UK, or who has access to Unibet, you can get Conor to win in round 1 or 2 at 1.80

    I'm not usually a conspiracy guy but the director zoomed in to Cowboy's torso when he walked onto the stage at the ceremonial weigh-in and then abruptly cut away to a crowd shot when he picked up the pace of his stride as he approached the scale. Hashtag# Limpgate

    Moment of silence for you fellows who bet Gladelha she looked ready to do work, seemed like a good call

    Couple dropped fights, PED failure, huge weight miss, more injury questions around the card.
    Still don't hate the opening price for the ME

    Holm was noticeably slower and past her prime during their first fight too, as she was 34 years old then. You know who else is noticeably slower and past her physical prime for this rematch? Raquel Pennington.

    For the record, I think your bet of Pennington by decision at +172 isn't bad; I cap it as roughly break-even in terms of EV.

    Haqparast, CDF and Conor are all big favorites. No value at the moment for any of them though.

    IMO Pennington's the side as a dog. It's going to be a close split, since Holm rarely puts together the volume to put stamps on anything, and I kinda think Pennington will have the upside in strikes attempted, aggression and possible TDs to actually cleanly take rounds.

    Couldn't help but put 5 bucks on Oleinik win round 1 via KO at +2500. Guy throws fists with everything he's got, it wasn't too long ago that he rocked Mark Hunt and Reem looked to respect the power coming his way for a bit too. In comparison Greene's defense is shit and I question his durability tbh. Maybe one of the haymakers that lands KO's greene and no submission is required.

    Ledet looks soft. I'm probably going to throw 5u on Camur.

    u really think the ufc wants to promote pennington? shes so dull and no one cares about her fights... if its a close decision i think its always going to go to holm because they think she is their cash cow and can sell big fights. they always put her fights high up on the main card

    So what are you saying? That the judges, who are assigned by the athletic commission and who don't work for the UFC, are going to score rounds for the fighter that popular consensus supposedly says the UFC wants to win? How does that happen exactly? Does Dana text them, call them and slip them an envelope of cash on the sly?

    if u dont think ufc is able to influence the refs then i dont know what to tell u... I dont think it happens in every fight but their are so many questionable decisions like look at romero vs borrachina as a recent one... i gave bor 1st round, romero second and the third couldve easily been scored 10-8 since he completely ran out of gas and it was all romero... but since they wanna make the big money fight and they know romero doesnt get big ppv numbers they wanted the young star

    They are judges, not refs, and thinking the UFC would fix a fight for 38 year old, 2 - 5 in her last 7 Holly Holm is some straight up tin foil hat shit. It was also a clear win for Costa. Yoel's activity is too low, and it costs him rounds in the judges eyes.

    lololol all i said if its a close fight i definitely think they will give it to holm. lets see what happens :)

    also your point about romero is bullshit since he landed more strikes in the second and third also got a takedown. was throwing full power while costa just stood back and threw kicks once he was gassed.

    While I consider potential judge favoritism for certain fighters, it should be noted that Holm was never a "cash cow". The UFC hoped she would become one after defeating Rousey, but it didn't happen.

    She's got some public recognition, but yeah a combination of the Rousey fight being a massive outlier from the entertainment level of the rest of Holm's career and her lacking a personality's kinda curtailed that.
