    Disagree, but I do agree with y’alls play on Pettis, although I’m not playing it at all. You described Tony’s style to a T. He’s known for pressure with the jab, and being aggressive with elbows and the infamous D’Arce choke. He’s also known for his wrestling, although he likes to fight off his back more than most, so why wouldn’t he be content doing this...Overall, Tony is known as an aggressive pressure fighter who believes in his cardio and style of fighting. It does leave openings (drops his front hand a lot, etc), though, and Tony is coming off a layoff, so that’s why I see the value in Pettis, but I’m gonna just enjoy this one.

    Tony finishes the fight way easier than Pettis does, and I think that’s what happens, but I’m fine just watching this one...

    Thoughts on this parlay:

    Patrick+Ferguson
    Welchers are the worst.

    For me its Khabib or nothing.

    McGregor is a good striker and gives fighters very unorthodox angles. For those saying he is the best striker.....nope sorry Every joe out there is saying Mcgregor is going to KO Khabib in the 1st round. While it certainly could happen as anything can if it was that easy in MMA "the best strikers" would be calling thier KO's all the time.

    Khabib is a world class wrestler who works opponents down and is a machine at doing so. He knows what mcgregor is about and will be ready for Conner trying to tag him. He has a solid chin and can take some punches so Im not worried about him taking some shots. The way i see it is its just a matter of time before Khabib gets ahold of Mcgregor and works him over. Conner can then focus on selling his whiskey and counting his $

    Oct 06 TOTAL u2½-135 (DERRICK LEWIS vrs ALEXANDER VOLKOV)

    Derrick Lewis back problems have been long documented and he has talk about it openly. Derrick Lewis has now is claiming the he has fixed his back with the help of Tiger Woods’ doctor. A back that’s forced him out of fights. A back that has seized up on him in the cage with killers like Mark Hunt and Francis Ngannou. Derrick Lewis and Alexander Volkov nearly brawl during ceremonial weigh in, there is bad blood between them since Lewis previously called out by Alexander Volkov for a fight at UFC Russia . Derrick Lewis is comming off the hidiouse Francis Ngannou clusterfuck. Derrick Lewis can not afford another boring fight if he wants a title shot. Volkov has been tagged up before and has average take down defense . Generally, he relies on conditioning and toughness to outlast his opponent, but he does have KO power. Alexander Volkov has a sick side kick to the head that could end this fight or lewis could capitalize on it and use it as a take down where lewis gets most of his wins. Its rare you get under 2 1/2 on a heavy weight fight.

    And this is exactly what should've happened had it not be for Volkov's stupidity.

    What are you talking about weirdo? You posted 4 quotes from Khabib and that’s your way of telling us Khabib was going to going to win the fight easily? Come on man.

    I posted Khabib ITD. Very clear and unequivocal and at better odds than the ML.

    I'm just wondering what the hell posting four quotes from a fighter says to anyone that follows this MMA Forum?
