Amscray is Yoel Romero a good underdog pick? Or is he going to shit himself again?

I'm also thinking Barboza is a little overrated and Cerrone is going to wrestle**** him. What do you think on that one? Odds are pretty much even on this fight

Tavares/Yoel is a very tough call.
Tavares has never been tested against top competition, however its yet to be seen whether Yoel Romero is or isn't top competition, although indicators suggest its possible. Also, I'm not educated enough on the library of Tavares fights to really make an insightful pick. I've seen them all, but I haven't watched them in the context of making a bet against Yoel Romero,

Intuitively, yes I like Yoel, if I had a gun to my head and had to pick one that's who I'd pick but I'm not betting on it.
Khabib v RDA is another one I'm not touching with a 10 foot pole.
I think Barboza is a bargain.

Motherf'er I forgot to record the main card. I hit Cerrone and Romero and missed both.

Yeah, I was debating going, but figured, free card is better than dropping $250 min on a couple of nosebleeds. They put 20k in the stands, so I think the UFC will be back.

Happy for Rice Cerrone. I know scram hates him but I like his style. RDA was soooo much faster but couldn't eat that jab

Outside of a possibility of a phantom knockout I don't really see Werdum even close to Velasquez in anything, but unfortunately nobody in the division seems to be near Velasquez

That Cerrone fight was the one parallel universe where he's up against a better fighter but gets off a shot that rings his bell and sinks in a choke.
Barboza was making him into a wife for that entire fight. Also, barring him getting fed a scrub to develop a marketable streak, I will be blind-shoving against Cerrone on whoever he gets next. Whoever it his next opponent is, I'll buy five to ten $100 pay units.

Very glad to see Alves v. Baczynsky get FOTN. That was a great fight.

I don't know if Pettis stops Khabib and at this point, Yoel may be unstoppable. Hes getting better with every fight, which is horrifying. I imagine Kennedy v Romero will be next.

Don't hate, Cerrone found a way to win.

Romero needs a gas tank to compete for a title.


Pettis is great off his back but isn't great at defending a takedown, re: Guida loss, so I fear that The Russian would smother him. And I love Pettis. His offense is so dynamic

I think Pettis is way better than he was when he fought Guida.

Dana probably hates that Khabib is so good because he is pretty boring. If Khabib ends up taking the title and holds it for awhile then it is pretty hypocritical of him to keep a guy like Askren out of the UFC.

He won and he deserves extra credit for slapping on the choke rather than monkeyfists which Barboza would've endured.
No hate for Cerrone but run that fight again, I'll take Barboza right now.

Thought of that too, however Khabib isn't as absolutely one-dimensional as Askren.

Yoel seems to have the right strategy for gas given his musclebound body type; ultra low activity then bursts, the edge being nobody is going to be able to handle his bursts. Since he's an insanely high intenrnational level athletic champion, he brings shit to the table that a lot of these guys don't, namely the ability to micromanage gas as he does. Also, chatter has it his Olympic wrestling background allows him to cut crazy weight. .

Yeah, the fact that he's an olympic level wrestler would make you think he has a gas tank. Weird he doesn't. But like you said, he can manage his matches, and also like you said, he's a monster that can cut weight. His bursts are so explosive.

It will be interesting to see what happens to him either a) in a 5 rounder or b) against someone with infinite gas who pushes, although the Top 10 @ MW doesn't have that Cain Velasquez / Clay Guida type jackrabbit.

He's getting either Kennedy or Jacare next for a contendership fight.

I watched the post fight conference and it sounds like Browne broke a rib and his hand in the first round which could be a reason for gassing

If its true (and not a BS excuse) that he broke a rib and hand in R1, that legitimately explains his shit performance but it unfortunately takes him out of the mix barring winning his next 3-4-5 fights and Werdum is not beating Cain, barring catching a chin.

Cormier vs Henderson.

For some reason, I want Henderson to KO him. Stop the hype train. Sadly, it doesn't seem likely. Decision finish for DC

They'd better have more than that if they expect that card to not be a PPV buy disaster.

One of the advantages of being a legit fan rather than a casual is often times, the undercards are more compelling.
Trinaldo v Chiesa, interested to see that fight. I'll probably buy some Iaquinta of he opens anything better than -250.
Same with a decent price on Ferguson.
