Haha ya I`m glad I didn`t put anything on those picks, because I think I went 3/10.
I've been studying all day so I have only kept up through twitter, but it seems like a pretty good night of fights all together. I'm quite interested in the Paige fight, because I hear that was a beating. Also I am excited for Hollaway, I'm always happy to see new talent breaking through the old guard of divisions.
This Card is a gamblers dream tonight, I think I saw one guy that had 100 dollars down to get 20K on a parlay, with the only risky bet imo being Max Holloway. You got Machida at underdog, Felcia at underdog, and Mizugaki as well.
Disappointed that Romero had to pull out, but I guess we get to see Jacare put on a show (or look silly).
My picks are:
Machida-Souza-Cub-Felice-Miller-Preux-Mizugaki-Means-Brandao (But I wanna hettes to win, hope he can grind Brandao down)-Gordon.
I heard this was the illest place to describe vaping culture.
2008 I started listening to the bombcast, and in 09 I realized that there was a whole website of shenanigans. Actually. I can tell you the exact date I made my account because it was the day the last episode of the Persona 4 endurance run went up, Sept 18th, 2009.
Did anyone else laugh a little bit when Reem had a perfect fight, and then went on to almost get finished in the last 30 seconds or so. His fights always leave me on the edge of my seat because they can end at any moment, EconoReem and Maynard are two cases of great skills but terrible chins.
Those fight pass prelims were pretty freakin good. Duffy looked slick, wasn't up against the best competition, but still you can't fake that hand speed, and those combinations. Germaine didn't even seem tested which is kind of disappointing, I cannot wait for WMMA to progress to a point where you have those Cyborg-esc slaughters. In addition what can you say about that Pettis fight, my gosh.
Most MMA fans get there kicks and shit on Sherdog (I post there despite it being garbage 90% of the time), and the UG (white background is terrible). MMA on giant bomb is like League of legends, there is something posters and the staff care about more (DOTA and wrestling). Like when they played that japense wrestling game on UPF all I could think about was all the famous MMA personalities on the roster like Funaki, Sakuraba and Takada.But if this thread shows growth I'd love to participatE, but adding onto current events I love discussing MMA history, etc.
Anyone else think Ken is gonna pull out of the Kimbo fight? He has a history of taking up front payment and then dropping out due to "injury".
