That loss put me at -17k for the month on my gambling. I have been getting my rear end handed to me at the poker table too. Wife shut me down for the month because she knows I will chase like a motherfucker and she is right. So we decided to go on vacation for 2 weeks until football starts. As long as Disney and Universal studios don't have things to gamble on I should be okay. I feel like overall in MMA I am still ahead but it can't be by much. At one point I know I was up to 30k profit from MMA gambling but since I changed bookies I lost most of my info on that. Awesome fight either way and I was going nuts went Diaz made that comeback at the end of the 2nd and all of the third. I thought with the takedown at the end of the fight it would have sealed it for Diaz but I guess I don't know poo poo about scoring because every where I have read says the scoring was pretty spot on.

Each round is scored individually so the takedown at the end of the fight only really secured the 5th round for Diaz. He still lost 3 other rounds.

I'm putting $20 on Cody Walker/AJ McKee to last under 1.5 rounds at -125 since 12/15 of the fights both guys have had lasted less than 1.5 rounds vOv

If you had 10k on the fight you might find a way to see more of those rounds for your guy. No offense jase1!

The best thing about betting on Carlos in this fight is that you're guaranteed to be spending at least 2 rounds making GBS threads your pants.

No.

Will be in Vegas the weekend of the 10th just in time to bet on UFC 203. Is Caesar's Sportbook better or worse then any of the others within easy walking distance? Hoping to get some decent action for 203 and then Week 1 of the NFL on Sunday.

Clapping Larry

Uriah Faber is a slight underdog against Rivera and I honestly think he takes it, so I'm on him for a 20 at +110. I've got Gall by KO in the first round for the same to win a hundred.

He'll submit Punk just so I lose my money I'm sure.

I put a few shekels on Overeem, Faber, and Werdum single bets. Was tempted to do Overeem by KO at +180 but it's possible Stipe survives a few rounds, wins a few rounds, and Overeem barely gets by with a decision win. Same goes for Stipe. So I felt the straight up +115 bet was a little safer for about the same return. there's my analysis

20 on calderwood, i think she's got this and she's the slight underdog
20 on werdum to beat the poo poo out of travis
10 on CM PUNK because i said i would in another thread before i saw him sparring a couple of weeks ago. and i sorta want to see him win.
10 on the reem because i think it's a coin flip and he's paying a bit over 2:1

I know what you meant but this tripped me out, if Reem was a 2:1 dog that would be an insane bet, as it is i think the odds are more or less accurate

Sorry I occasionally try to convert it to something you guys can easily understand and it's really not that hard but, yeah.

"So I was playing COD yesterday, and some flankenstein came up from behind and shot me."

Just got home from my 2 week sabbatical where 1 week was no drinking, no smoking pot and most important no gambling. Wife is happy with her Harry Potter poo poo and Disney Princess stuff from Universal and Disneyworld. Trip cost me more than what I am betting tonight so I have free reign to do what I want. My account is at 0 and my bookie is itching for action so. I put 5k on mickey gall to win by tko at +250 and 10k on Stipe @-115 just for the fact that he is repping Cleveland. Football betting starts tomorrow for me so this is just the beginning. I will be down the street from the event playing poker and drinking everything in sight.
