    ytd 22-25 -3.7

    Diaz/Masvidal GTD -140 1.4/1
    Luque -110 1.1/1
    Ivanov +100 1/1
    Gillespie -140 1.4/1
    Arce +110 1/1.1
    O6.5/12 GTD -140 1.4/1

    Notes:
    - Both Diaz and Masvidal are BMF's and hard to put away. The last time Masvidal lost ITD was 10+ years ago. It's been more than 6 for Nate.
    - The best thing about Luque here is his discipline to keeping a good high guard (keep your hand up, son). He needs to pressure WB and stay in boxing range and outside WB's kicking range, which he's very good at doing.
    - Ivanov is a patient, technical striker and I think he wins a scoring decision here on the feet.
    - Gillespie is the real deal. Unlimited gas tank and tremendous wrestling - my favorite type of fighter as that is my style as well.
    - I favor basically every fight to go the distance. Johnny Walker probably KO's 25/8 - but that's the most confident i am about a finish on this one. The rest of them I lean decision.

    Good luck, Cowboy, I agree with these for sure. Exact reasons why I'm playing Luque as well instead of Thompson.

    Enjoy the card brotha, I'm headed to a jitz tourney today until about 5, and then coming home for this action...Looking forward to it as my BJJ Coach is competing too (Thompson was actually my first kickboxing coach, but I'm on Luque too, lol)

    Nice bro - are you at Pitch Black? We have a guy competing tonight at a BJJ pro show (Fight 2 Win) at 5:50, but I'm not gonna make it. I teach a 5-9 yo kids class at 10am, then I'll come home at about noon, make a fat meal and get ready for this card. Good luck today to you and your team.

    Hell yea, gonna make fat meal after the comp too!

    I’m at Tom Deblass, and my buddy is a BB through Alliance and teaches at the UFC gym here in town, so I do classes/privates with him sometimes too...

    I love it, I may try to take on Masters Worlds next year...
