UFC 214 Bones vs DC: Ring IQ vs Solid Game Planning

UFC 214 Bones vs DC: Ring IQ vs Solid Game Planning

UFC 214 was a not a night of upsets, but it was definitely a night that did not go to expectations on many accounts. Evinger surviving into the third round, Oezdemir’s prompt knock out of odds favourite Manuwa and the satisfyingly close, long awaited Cerrone vs Lawler war. But of course, the shocker and the curtain call for the night, Jon Jones’ knockout win of long time rival Daniel Cormier is the one that has people talking. Not only was this DC’s first time being finished, but against a long…

UFC 214 Sleeper Fight: Lawler vs. Cerrone

UFC 214 Sleeper Fight: Lawler vs. Cerrone

UFC 214 appears to be the most stacked card of 2017 with Jon “Bones” Jones’ highly anticipated return versus his archnemesis Daniel Cormier. However, before the main event we get two exciting title fights. Tyron Woodley defends his Welterweight title against perhaps the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner in MMA today, Demian Maia. But first the woman with one name, Cyborg, will tee off against the former Invicta bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger for the freshly abandoned women’s Featherweight Strap. Three belts are up for grabs tonight and none more contentious than…

UFC 211 Betting Picks: Brazilian Upsets

Big card tonight, we finally have some titles on the line and not to spoil my picks but I think we may see both of them change hands. Let’s first talk about JDS Miocic. Now I’m no MMA Analyst but I reckon if you are looking to predict the outcome of a rematch then a good place to start is the first fight. Junior Dos Santos won that first fight by unanimous decision; and statistics tell us that MMA rematches are, more often than not, won by the victor of…

UFC 208 Last Minute Picks

Terrible card for betters tonight. Absolute garbage. Therefore a perfect place to start our official Bum Picks. Despite the name, these Bum picks are guaranteed winners 100% of the time. I have been an accomplished MMA better for months and if Denzel wins the Oscar later this month I will have tripled my bank roll. (Full Disclosure my earnings came in-part or in whole because of a large early +550 bet on trump and a season of Patriots dominance.) But all that is irrelevant, let’s get into the picks. I’m not touching…

Woodley Ends the Lawler Era

Woodley Ends the Lawler Era

I dunno if there is anyone in MMA today more frightening in the first round than Woodley. He’s got an amazing wrestling base that leaves opponents no choice but to stand with him and pray he doesn’t banish them to the shadow realm in those first five minutes. He’s taken the Chuck Liddel recipe for success and added about 50 lbs of blacksposiveness to the mix. Fighting woodly is like trying to outrun a semi truck with a gallon of fuel, if you can just stay ahead of it for…
