    Sat 1/17

    UFC 93 - Welterweight 3 rounds - The O2 - Dublin, Ireland - PPV

    Alan Belcher vs Denis Kang

    My pick is Denis Kang to win

    Odds : - 245

    Where : bookmaker

    6.12 units to win 2.5 units



    This is top price I would go on this one , at - 300 I see on some other sites I wouldn't make this play probably but I think Kang has more overall MMA skills . No disrespect to Belcher but if Kang doesn't win this fight he can most likely forget dreaming about successive career in the UFC .

    getting into the range where Kang would be the play for me as well. I took Belcher at +300 just because i thought that was way too high. Belcher has great stand up imo, but he is one dimensional. Kang is more well rounded but if he gets caught exchanging i like my +300. plus ufc debuts are sometimes interesting.

    bol anyhow, we are on many of the same plays again.

    leaning twards franklin, or go the distance at +105, would like to get a +120 on franklin, dont know if that is going to happen.

    I will be rooting for Rich that being said it should be a damn close fight .

    Don't forget that undercard fights start in 1 hour 40 minutes .

    And I was just talking to my buddy how Kang has to avoid that sub and he has the win in the bag ... same ole mistakes by Kang .
    Sad way to get caught with 24 seconds to go , why the hell would Kang try a takedown with so less time to go , he clearly was winning the round , not like Belcher would KO him in 25 seconds .
    Hopefully Palhares and Shogun win to make it a profitable event , if Palhares wins this now I will add a play on the main event fight .

    joe rogan is the best mma comentator, hands down imo. he has great knowledge of bjj and the ground game and has a great understanding of what needs to be implemented at any given time in a fight. not to mention he clearly always does his homework and as a mma bettor you should always be listening to what he has to say about who has been training where and what they have been working b/c you pick up some good tidbits you dont find doin your regular research.

    lastly, he is euthusiastic about the sport.

    i dont really understand why people complain about him.

    And when you walk out the cage with a win bonus as a +300 underdog it is great. whats wrong with getting beatin up by a superior opponent only to show enough heart to perservere and lock in a slick choke.

    rogan is not the idiot

    Remember that as commentator Rogan's job is to inform and excite & he does both. Yes he makes some outrageous statements at times but that's part of the job

    I like how he was screaming for a standup while Palhares was in Horn's guard.

    I remember during the Couture/Sylvia fight where he went on a minute long rant about how there should never be stand-ups in MMA.

    He was also horribly biased in his commentating of the Gono/McRory fight.

    Kang got caught dominating whole fight .
    Thought there was some value with Franklin , got close in the end but Hendo had 1 takedown too many .

    UFC 93 : 3-2 + 2.08 units


    Boxing RTD : 15-4 + 94.4 units
    MMA YTD : 53-24 + 65.35 units



    Now to AFFLICTION event this weekend .

    I don't understand those odds on Lil Nog fight at all , if anybody disagree please feel free to give your arguments against this bet .
    My fair line would be around - 150 on Lil Nogueira if not higher that this .

    This is what Nogueira says about their fight 6 years ago .

    You fought him at 2002... What’s the plan for this fight now?

    He’s from wrestling, I fought with him and lost, but I’ll get a rematch now. I didn’t train for that fight, they called me one week before it and didn’t even knew who he was… He kept me on the ground on top of me the whole time, I tried an arm-lock but he got out, and today I’m a lot better trained and I’m a complete different end better fighter, I’m more confident and will be different.


    After his brutal KO loss to Andrei Arlovski Matuyshenko took 2 years off and after his comeback is riding a 8-0 win streak , over not such a great competition I must say tho . Last time he fought 8 monthes ago and I think a little bit better skilled opponent would finish him but decide for yourself :

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/pi80PUi_LEg&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/pi80PUi_LEg&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    After Lil Nogueira's upset KO loss to Sokoudjou he has fought 3 times about same level competition opponents Vladdy has had and beat them all , last fight was 2 monthes ago in Japan . Nothing special but Nogueira looked in solid form , more or less crisp on his feet against a bulky opponent , got few takedowns and pretty much dominated the whole fight .

    <div><object width="420" height="339"><param name="movie" value="http://www.dailymotion.com/swf/x79u6g" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://www.dailymotion.com/swf/x79u6g" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="339" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always"></embed></object><br /><b><a href="http://www.dailymotion.com/swf/x79u6g">Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Moise Rimbon Sengoku 6</a></b><br /><i>by <a href="http://www.dailymotion.com/louloute23">louloute23</a></i></div>

    As I wasn't able to find their first fight video I cant say much about it but I guess as Noguiera said he was controlled on the ground by Matuyshenko's wrestling .
    It was 6 years ago and Nogueira improved a lot in this time . He should have very solid edge in stand up and his ground game should be better as well other than Matuyshenko will have the edge in wrestling however I think Nogueira's sprawl will be good enough to defend some early takedowns . Score points on their feet , maybe rock Matuyshenko or KO him as we have seen in Matuyshenko's previous fight he will probably eat some punches .
    Even if Noguiera gets taken down I cant see him getting GnP'ed by Vladdy , don't have to mention how dangerous Nogueira brothers are off their back .

    Rogan is no different then many other GOOD announcers out there. They all know their stuff. He is redundant and overdoes it. I don't need to listen to Joe Rogan to learn about a sport I've been watching for going on 12years now.

    He's completely biased and disrespectful. He picks his favorite fighters in fights and virtually roots for them. He did it in the Rua-Coleman fight as well as Liddell-Wandy fight. He might as well put a cheerleading skirt on the way he was broadcasting. Those are just a couple of the many fights.

    Try something. Just listen to the audio of him and Goldberg do a fight and I gurantee you that eventually, you'll rather watch the fights on mute.

    The fact that he said "amazing performance" in a fight where Belcher in all likelyhood was losing 20-18(I thought 20-17), is pretty idiotic. There was nothing amazing about his performance. He caught a gassed Kang go for a sloppy(unecessary) takedown at the end of the round and caught him in a lucky guillotine.

    Initially I liked Vlad but after doing more research & watching a couple fights I think I have to agree with you on this. My only 2 concerns are that Rogerio decisioned Moise Rimbon and didn't finish him in his last fight and I worry that Vlad gets some takedowns and executes a little lay & pray for a decision.
    Lil Nog is one of 3 guys to sub Hendo (the other 2 were Big Nog & Anderson Silva) so we know he has the skills to work off his back if he shows up.
