    ytd 5-5 -.7

    Gaethje -180 over Cowboy 1.8/1
    Azure +140 over Katona 1/1.4
    Skelly +140 over Griffin 1/1.4
    Hughes -120 over Duffee 1.2/1
    U4.5/12 Decisions +140 1/1.4

    Notes:
    -- Gaethje is really good at working the body and Cowboy has been dropped by body shots a lot. Cowboy doesn't like pressure forward fighters and Justin is constantly pressure forward.
    -- Azure is a newcomer from DWTNCS. He's a 4-time state champ wrestler from Montana and is an unlimited gas tank-type fighter. Katona's last loss against Dvalishvilli laid the same type of blueprint and showed Katona's biggest weakness - wrestlers with a good tank.
    -- I just like Skelly's craftiness and experience in this one. This will be a good fight, but Skelly is the type of guy that finds ways to win.
    -- Mostly fading Duffee's long lay off of 4+ years and his chin, which has taken some huuuuge fuckin' shots over the years. He's also an impatient brawler which is a fun style but I'll take the guy that sits down on his combos a little more.

    Good luck, Cowboy. I agree with the reasoning behind all of these, especially Gaethje and Hughes...

    As much as I'd love to see Cowboy win, I too said I think the body shots break him and Gaethje can take some damage...

    That's awesome - same story for me. I'm 10 years in and starting training is definitely one of the best decisions I've ever made.
