No.

Wiman is in the interesting position of being a fighter who's good enough that if he was in any division other than 155 he'd be top ten, but he's a lightweight so he's barely top 20.

it wasnt enough to handle tavares

but wimans hail mary KO was better than rashads on chuck and wiman got screwed out of recognition for having the most brutal one punch knock out that year

On the other hand he looks like he improved his offensive wrestling substantially and his power will likely be more than enough against a guy like Siver. I like Wiman largely because he is aggressive as hell, and fights from the opening bell until the fight is completely over. His past few fights have been extremely impressive.

Siver hasn't been taken down in a long time (at least not that I can remember), but he hasn't been facing world class wrestlers either. Siver also is still gassing in his fights because he is large despite being a relatively small LW. Combined with Matt Wiman looking better each time he fights, and this is a very winnable fight for Wiman.

So with the US shutting down some of the big time poker sites I guess it would be smart to cash out with my online books.

(and yes, it probably would be safe to cash out, although there are probably tons of people also doing that right now)

Government isn't going after Bodog (again/yet), and the non-American side should be fine regardless except for cash flow issues.

Feel kinda bad for the people who have their livelihoods tied up, a lot of people prepped for a day like this by keeping money spread between the sites and welp that didn't really work.

I would rewatch Couture/Vera before making that bet. Age was already catching up to him by that fight, and it was nearly 2 years ago
