20 days to go and already got the odds, bizarre
but i like it...
Damn Gonzalez is always getting under rated. I'll take him here. He can walk himself into a big shot but hes so tough and if he can survive first few mins hard to see him not grinding away on Ward
gonz +100 the only one i considered.. (besides some o/u's, but meh)
didn't bet a thing yet. think the lines are pretty well set otherwise? i guess? tho arteaga not really justified to be that big of a favorite, i guess
i wanna hit the mckee u1.5, but he's burned me on a couple unders and tugman is fairly durable if nothing else...
Who the fook is Blair Tugman? I feel like maybe I've seen him fight once, the name maybe rings a bell? But I can't remember a damn thing about him. I get that he's just cannon fodder for McKee, but is he tough? Can he hang in there awhile? His 10-6 record doesn't breed optimism, esp since he probably hasn't been fighting elite guys...
Edit: EZ says he'd "durable if nothing else". Hmm...
This fight card is really good. It's got depth I like it, wish we had odds for a few more fights.
Edit:: Hold on 17 fights? Lol what
It will absurd if we don't get lines on Georgi vs pineda, Lahat vs corrales,
Honeycutt vs casey...
^^^ please take note, bookies! We want to bet these!
Other damned interesting matchups on prelims yet again... Good Russians... Fairly well known dudes and dudettes...
Pfl and Bellator keep burying them on undercards... We need to start getting lines...
all i have so far is a small bet on mckee U1.5 +150, and it's burned me when i've bet that the last couple mckee fights...
I thought it was Tugg Speedman.
Kinda want to throw some money on Chidi. I don't think he has that bad of a chance here.
Honeycutt also. Casey is just awful
Gonna parlay all my bets with Kastriot Xhema. If I heard that was my opponent's name I'd dip out.
Ward vs. Gonzalez is a catchweight at 178 pounds. It was decided on since the fight was originally put together.
Ward is fysical similarl to Fernandos last opponent Brandon Gritz, Ward looks to evolve for each fight and Fernando have age against him and seems to start fading. Fernando have the better cardio but Ward have shown good fight IQ and that he can pace himself in his fight in Rizin newyear 2015. I think ward is to strong for Fernando he can win by tko or get the takedowns and grind out a dessision. I got 3u on ward at 1,87
Looks to evolve? Rofl, he's been fighting the exact same way for his whole career. Good fight IQ? hahahhahhahhhaha
Alright please stop. Ward is quite possible the stupidest fighter in ALL of the MMA game, and that includes Meisha Tate and Martin Kampmann.
I know you want a better number on Gonzales, but c'mon mate... At least make it believable.
^^^^Yeah I was scratching my head about that too LOL. Evolving, fight IQ, etc. are umm...not the first things I think when I think of Brennan Ward.
I think about a guy who will stand directly in front of anyone and throw absolute bombs until he either gets a KO or gets KO'd.
Does Tugman really deserve to be +885 vs McKee? I mean, McKee has looked ever improving in his young career, but that seems excessive.
all down to conor.
more eyes on mma fights as a result of this fight.
more ppl betting on mma
books offer more mma odds
I think it's more likely that because there are a dearth of MMA cards in August, the handicappers had time on their hands to set lines for Bellator well in advance instead of waiting until the week of.
