    Was one of those literal jump off the couch moments for me watching this.

    Yep.

    I'm probably alone in this, but one of the last times I was jump off the couch excited was when Amanda KO'd Cyborg. I am not even really sure why.

    They’re both weird. I think she’s naturally a little awkward but he’s got the CTE.

    Hey MMA dudes, who’s winning between Poirier and Hooker tonight? Draft Kings offering another one of those tasty promos.

    I forget the details but wasn't Pay Berry like 29 and Rose was 14-16 when they got together? Definitely a weird situation.

    The promo has Poirier at +500. Too good to pass up?
     
  15. Manny

    Manny I love lamp.

    Can Poirier protect his legs? Because Hooker loves the calf kick and Dustin has been susceptible to getting his legs chewed up in the past

    Key question of the fight imo.

    Pulling for Poirier but Hooker is a beast and I’d definitely take him and the odds.

    It’s a $1 max bet right?
    If I had access to FD SportsBook id take that then also put some on Hooker at +185 through a different Sportsbook. It’s what us in the #biz call arbitrage.

    Yep.

    • Zalal/Griffin are pretty evenly matched. I think Zalal manages a few takedowns (4-5) and wins by decision (maybe gets a choke in, both guys have a ton of wins by sub)
    • Passing on the women, Hansen by decision.
    • Sato by KO, he swings for the fences. Finished his last 6 wins, all by KO. Did lose a decision to Bilal Muhammad in that span, but there's no shame in that, and there's a giant gap between Bilal and Jason Witt (on short notice to boot).
    • Worthy is a boom or bust guy, had a hell of a knockout vs Devonte Smith as a big dog in his UFC debut (also on short notice). The smaller cage will force Pena to engage more, and he's on record as saying they're meeting in the middle and slugging it out. I'll take Worthy +380 ITD here, because I don't love a lot of dogs on this card and he has the ability to crack him.
    • Woodson by KO. Erosa is the worst male fighter on this card by a decent margin.
    • Boser vs Lins I'm expecting a pretty boring heavyweight decision. I was high on Lins going into the Arlovski fight and he never let his hands go. That's the exact type of fight Boser likes. Also, Boser's never been knocked out so I expect him to be in and out and never put himself in real danger. I don't have a pick here, and I'm passing on DK. Just think it makes it to a decision.
    • Allen is a stud, I expect him to get the back and the sub in the 1st.
    • Villante looked terrible on the scales, moving up a weight class to fight a guy fighting for his UFC career with KO power. Greene by 1st round KO.
    • Gall vs Perry is weird. Perry's a wild man and I expect Gall to get it to the ground as quickly as possible. If he can survive the initial flurry, he can catch him in a sub. Gall ITD as another dog.
    • Poirier should piece Hooker up nicely and win by TKO sometime in the 3rd or 4th. Should be a hell of a fight.
