Shields has done some grappling things in mma that are kind of insane if unspectacular, but hes also capable of being terrible so I dont know what tot hink of him

I think most people try to convince themselves that not only did Jake survive the H-Bomb, but also soundly beat everyone's favorite Old Man

IIRC there was a UFC fighter (can't remember who) who said on an AMA that Shields was one of the most weirdly strong people he had ever rolled with. I don't think he's physically weak at all.

hmm i did forget about that. Well... I still stand by my statement for some reason

Shields is tapping into his inner serial killer for this fight. I just couldn't bet against someone with dem crazy eyes.
(Although he could just be really hungry and scanning the crowd for tofu and/or hay.)

No.

even though I put a lot of money on Ronda winning within the first few rounds, I hope jase1 wins his bet. And enjoy your birthday dude.

And Atom too but he has significantly less money on the line.

Does DraftKings bullshit count in this thread as well?

My lineup for tonight:

Rousey
Aguilar
Vitor Miranda
Soa Palelei
N E I L M A G N Y

I know Rousey is a bit of a trap but it seems like way too many guaranteed points and insurance against Struve or someone making GBS threads the bed.

Was thinking of dropping some money on Correira to win but I just can't see any way of her winning so instead I'm wasting my money on a $1 parlay on Rafael Cavalcante/Nordine Taleb/Jessica Aguilar/Neil Magny/Big Foot/Little Nog/Big Nog to win $1652

I find your lack of faith... disturbing

Ronda by sub is only -165, which seems good to me, if not very exciting

I put $50 on that and have $50 from earlier on Ronda having the fastest sub of the night +125

Yep, I've got $10 on that trio but I only get $270 if they win. Worth it imo, we'll see how they pan out.

No.

The greatest moment in my life was realizing that I didn't need a belt to be happy.


I lost on Feijao, Magny, and Big Nog but covered most of that on Bigfoot and betting heavy on Rousey finishing in round 1. The thing is if I had to redo those picks over I still would have picked Big Nog and Feijao, those fights were decently close where as Magny was on defense the entire fight and then got submitted.

he got his brain scrambled but he tagged Cummins a lot in the first 2 rounds. Cummins could barely see at the end of the fight. I thought Magny was going to be the best bet for an upset out of the four but he did the worst. he got controlled the entire match.

Anyways I doubt I'll be betting on anything next weekend. It's a bad card.

I bet on Magny solely on the basis of your post. How dare you mislead me. I should have put all my money on Bigfoot like I originally planned, but honestly I probably would've backed out like the coward I am. Also, how the gently caress did Jakes Shields lose to Paul Harris? I thought his vaunted legacy of American Jiu Jitsu could withstand a one trick pony, but I guess I was mistaken.

Is there seriously no one who can contend with Rousey or is the UFC feeding her tomato cans. Eventually she has to lose right or is she really that good?

She really is that good and everyone else in her division is worse than you'd think. She is the best striker and grappler at W135 by huge margins.

Alvey is tempting but it feels like a fight where you're waiting all 15 minutes for Alvey to finally land the shot to put Brunson away and it never happens.

I'd love if it did though.
