Pretty sure that was the joke.
We're gonna have more empathy for our EurAsia Brothers.
I usually watch beginning to end, but I don't think I can stay up all night or get up at 4:30 am to start watching. I'm probably going to get up just before 8 am for the main card live and then watch the prelims after that.
How dare you. I want you to feel our pain.
Problem for you euro guys is, you have to do that shit all the time. I actually have fun with these rare weird start times for UFC lol
I'm not watching until normal start time on Saturday.
I'm gonna switch back and forth on sleeping and staying up. When the first fight starts I'll fall asleep and miss the whole card.
Every damn Sunday I see the first prelims, put the alarm at 3.30 or so and then watches the main card. It's brutal and I LOVE THIS CARDS TIME.
I'm gonna force myself to try to fall asleep by 9 or 10.. and wake up at 4... This is gonna end badly
Guys, how the hell do you European freaks do it? I'm in California and I just don't know if i can wake up at 1:45am for this card, let alone stay up til 1:45am! Contemplating maybe waking up at 3am to start watching. Probably will miss maybe the first 3-4 fights.
I'm exhausted even thinking about it. I admire all your dedication to the game
Well I barely know any other way. I tried watching fights later but I need it live. I followed this for so long and it's always been like this so I can't imagine having it "normal" time every day. It's just a sacrifice I'm willing to make.
WI's and MU's
RDA looked far better than I expected. Seems to be carrying the weight well.
Generic Filipino stand in for Inoue to smash looked terribly out of shape, ,
Inoue looked awesome as anticipated. Another Korean killer set for stardom.
Harris big and thick. Very athletic individual improving rapidly,
Asker was soft as usual. Has a LHW frame.
BLR long and lean looking very fit. He should wax Dy.
The aforementioned Dy was meh at best. A small FW. Out gunned everywhere.
Walt is a huge heavyweight fighter. Excellent timing, a ramrod jab and brutal rear leg kick to the midsection. Also has a Harris throws a long left that flies perpendicular across his man's frame directly to the tip of their chin. Jared Canonnier used similar shots to dismantle Asker and in their fight and I anticipate this one playing out very similar. It just appears that Asker is one of those fighters who are going to have a ton of trouble with southpaws in their career. With his stance to his his chosen shot selection, everything he does is like shooting fish in a barrel for a lefty.
Harris throws in vicious combinations and strings all of his strikes together with a purpose. Keep an eye on the jab > left cross > uppercut combo. This particular sequence could be money all night. So should the left kick to the body and head.
Harris has shored up his once vulnerable TDD which is Askers only real chance to get the win. I expect Harris to shut down any of the French fighters TDA's before using him as canon fodder. Target practice.
Harris is not a tremendously great fighter as of yet, but the potential is there. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Asker.
Prediction Walt Harris X HHK
BET: Harris ITD -180
Bit of analysis and so forth.
145lbs- ALEX CACERES (12-10-0 1NC) vs ROLANDO DY (8-4-1 1NC)
Creative. Flows well.
Good striking and BJJ skills.
Has trouble vs. physically stronger men or submission aces. Dy is neither.
Undersized. Negative 2" reach.
Not a sub threat. Just 2-sub wins.
Average Muay-Thai striking with decent pop.
Very limited athlete who lacks speed, explosiveness, power.
Rodriguez and Knight are in a different stratosphere than Dy.
Very experienced in the octagon. Always calm.
Comes from great camp MMA Lab. Great sparring partners
Small camp. Making his debut. Octagon jitters.
Dy in on super short notice. 3-weeks approximately.
BET: under 2.5
125lbs- JUSTIN SCOGGINS (11-3-0) vs ULKA SASAKI (19-4-2)
Made weight easily.
Could be undefeated. Makes silly mistakes.
Has high level wrestling and submission skills.
Believe he's matured after reading/listening to interviews.
Has the diversity and skins potential to be future FLW champion.
Long rangy Karate stylist. Very similar to Wonderboy but more aggressive.
Unless an ACME falls on his head Wile E. Coyote style, Scoggins a virtual lock.
3 inches taller. Minus 5″ reach
Mediocre wrestling and serviceable striking but wax real pop.
Very gangly sure of her 125 pound fighter. Excellent back takes.
BET: Scoggins +700 decision prop. Scogg ITD
170lbs- LI JINGLIANG (12-4-0) vs FRANK CAMACHO (20-4-0)
Great chin. Takes too many shots however.
Big power in his hands but defense is a bit lackluster.
Fast, athletic, great wrestling and submissions, and crisp boxing
15 of his 20 wins via knockout.
A serviceable pugilist but easy to find.
Very small welterweight. Natural weight class.
Leech never KOd.
Short notice for FC and up a division
Leech 1 inch taller and 3 inch reach advantage.
BET : Under 2.5
I like that line a lot, will take some of that as well
I like Camacho/Jingliang ends in KO/TKO -115 on Unibet
waking up before mid day is the struggle for me. i'm likely going to miss a good portion of this card.
The concensus(sp?) seems to believe Tuck will win via first round sub, but that's a juicy line.
Inoue is a Japanese name.
also: would appreciate your thoughts on Scoggins/Sasaki. I've been watching so much tape on them and think that somebody who leaves their stance wide and neck open is just a perfect matchup for young Ulka, considering the odds. Not to mention Ulka will have the reach advantage, which might neutralize some of the Karate (which Ulka might be familiar with himself as a Japanese fighter).
Didn't realise it was a well early card, I'll have to get my bets on now. Hopefully wake up in time to watch the event if its on BT Sport.
A morning.of fights and getting to enjoy the sun afterwards, will make a change from going to sleep at 6am Sunday morning after staying up for an event then losing most of Sunday afternoon to sleep and being a zombie in work trying to readjust my sleeping pattern before doing it all again the next weekend.
Holm-Correia GTD 1.73
Holm-Correia o2.5 1.57
Whoa, it's 9 hours from now? That's around 11:00 for me, won't get off work till 17:00. Means I'm pretty much going to miss the whole event, still barely have any bets...
Yep. 9 hours.
Going to (try to go to) bed soon
