    Yea, no shit. IDK why Runmaker is so high on Masvidal, always has been. I like him too, he's from a great camp, street fighter background, however, with those attributes, the guy lacks killer instinct, somehow. Takes rounds off and never tries to get the fight to move to his strengths. With that said, where tf is he? He's been stale and not even talked about since the Wonderboy fight, and that was over 10 months ago...

    I don't like Masvidal... but I would love to see him get popped by other fighters.

    So many fantasy matchups I'd like to see, but not one out of a hundred will ever happen. Would've loved to see Gastelum vs Mousasi (not possible). Or Gastelum vs Rockhold.

    Would love seeing Khabib fight at 170.

    Bla bla bla.

    I'm hoping there is a violent ending in the Till/Woodley match. For some reason I can't see Woodley getting crushed. I think only one time he was KO.... Marquardt?

    Found the finish.



    Woodley built so solid he can withstand lots of bombs.

    Can't wait for it. And can't wait for the Woodley fight. I'm hoping for massive fireworks in that one and to see somebody get finished.
    Khabib ITD
    Welchers are the worst.

    Sounds logical.... but Khabib hasn't "finished" the majority of his UFC fights ITD. And now he's facing a higher caliber opponent.


    Anyways, getting back to Till.... if we know go by history in boxing/UFC, there will likely be some rigging on the scorecards. If Woodley doesn't finish Till, then I don't think the cards will be favorable to him.... especially since Till will likely outstrike him.

    If it goes the distance, Woodley will likely get a screw job unless he was above and beyond the winner in the fight... and if Till wins by decision, Woodley be on social media complaining like a housewife at a shopping mall.


    Hell, I'd like to see Khabib vs Till at 170....

    No take down attempt until after 2 minutes in. Trading with Johnson.



    If he does that with McG, he will get wobbled.

    Leaning more and more McG.

    Power comes with a price. It's a burden. It demands sacrifice, Michael Johnson gas tank was empty by the end of the first round. Al Iaquinta was very calm when the fight was on the ground and did not burn himself out and went 5 rounds. Iaquinta was able to maintain wrist control when they were in close quarter fighting against the fence. I'm hoping McGregor will use the same. Odds on Coner down to +130 . Rounds start on the feet , that gives a maximum of 5 times for McGregor to get the TKO.

    Bib has no power, lacks speed, and non striker....his only chance is on the ground and he has fought no one of caliber yet
    She acts like everythings normal, while in her mind, she's already gone.

    Damn Khabib's only chance to win is his wrestling? Shit, I never thought of that.

    I know Joshua/Wilder aren't gonna fight for a while, but I think Wilder's only chance is his boxing really.

    This analysis is absurd.

    Anybody see doubt in Conor at the pc? Something looked off. And no crowd? Like having a championship game in front of two people..... weird.

    Conor acted like a mental patient. This isn't the same McGregor from a couple years ago

    Conor has gone completely mad and has lost the plot.

    Praying Khabib mops the floor with him and humbles him.

    i'm debating hedging a little bit with laflare by decision - there is no way he's getting a finish. maybe i'll let it ride since i'm only 1u on martin.

    No hedging from me, it’s not my style, nor am I big on Laflare to begin with...

    Good Luck on whatever you decide...

    Khabib imo. Conor hasn't fought in 2 years and his cardio is suspect. Khabib gets it to the the 3rd round and u will see Conor fade fast. i will be in Vegas for the fight

    I think Pettis at +268 is amazing value. No doubt Ferguson is better but Pettis style and the price is great. Ferguson isn't gonna straight pressure and then wrestle Pettis. That is how you beat him. And if you are gonna stand it has to be pressure and good boxing. That really isn't Fergusons style. I really want Tony to win though
