Leaning Maverick, Barber, Burns. And the under 2.5 for Pitillo vs Marquez.

Kelleher over Simon? I’d like to hear your thought process on that.

These two were supposed to fight a few different times, but it keeps getting postponed.

Most people are expecting Ricky Simon to use his wrestling and spam take downs, but I like Kelleher's progression with his overall MMA skill set. I don't think Kelleher should be favored, but I do like him as the dog and give him a decent shot to win, which is the opposite mindset of most other people.

Kelleher has the better striking and betting subs, while Simon has the better wrestling. I am hoping Kelleher can keep this on the feet long enough to win a decision, or even catch Simon with his sneaky power in his hooks.

Man Usman is the worst champion ever lol

You don't care if he wins or loses. Woodley was at least annoying in a Mayweather sense

Usman is just super solid

I think Usman should be favored, but I don't know how much.

If Usman can't hold Burns against the cage to wall-n-stall, then how does he win? That being said, Usman trains his striking with Trevor Whitman, and Whitman does wonders for people who need to upgrade their boxing. I wouldn't be surprised to see a new and improved striker in Usman.

I already made my bet on Burns +236 for $200.

I think that's the question that applies to any of his fights, but your bet makes sense imo.

Usman understands that he'll eventually meet someone he can't hold and that's why he's been working on his stand-up game.

I was so sad about Colby Covington's performance against Usman. Colby only threw a few kicks early in the fight, but the kicks were part of what was going to set him apart with his striking. He basically just boxed the entire time and managed to keep it close (2-2) until the final round when he got clipped. If he used kicks in rounds 3, 4, 5, he would've won, imo.

Colby being the better striker is why I bet on him in that fight, but then he turned into a pure boxer and made the fight a coin flip that he eventually lost.

Colby's fighting IQ is so poor

Vieira just got submitted by the biggest underdog on the card, but at least my U1.5 bet cashed.

Barber is super overrated. Honestly surprised at how many people had her to win.

She was trying some new shit she learned in the gym during Rounds 1 and 2, and then went back to her usual style in Round 3 and won that round.

She's still super young, but it is annoying that she is making these mistakes. I'm not mad at betting her opening line at +156. She closed at -103.

R1: Burns (Even odds after R1. Usman closed at -139.)

Gilbert was already slowing down in Round 2 after doing well in Round 1. He was getting dropped by jabs once he slowed down (2-3 times before he got finished).

I liked my bet on Burns +236 originally, but after seeing that his cardio looked worse than usual, I don't know what to say.

Oh well.
