Contract said 3 rounds only

Not sure about 2 judges giving the 2nd round to Israel but clearly deserving winner

Big ufc card this weekend.

Cain making his return vs Ngannou. Yes he has been inactive, and I expect some ring rust, but after seeing how Francis could not defend a takedown against Stipe cannot see how he does it here. Cain won’t be dumb and stand and risk getting caught w a huge uppercut. Takedowns early and often and either ground n pound or decision for Cain.

Askren making his long awaited ufc debut against the always tough Lawler. This could be great, on the feet clear adv to Robbie, on the ground, clear adv Askren. Whoever can implement their will wins. Curious to see what happens should Askren win and TWood retain, bc aren’t they teammates? Would they fight each other?

Woodley vs Usman. Really looking fwd to this one. Both are great wrestlers. Both are explosive strikers. Woodley obv has been in w the stiffer competition, but Usman looked really good vs RDA. If they both engage this should be FOTN material.

First thoughts, only as devil's advocate and not to disparage anything but perspective

Stipe 80" reach, Cain 77" reach. 3" is huge when grasping and I can't imagine that Francis hasn't made that the focal point in training. As always, the past rarely explains the future, and if it does, Francis is an idiot. I would bet there will be more standing and fighting in this than most I'm sure.

Other matches aren't for a couple weeks but prefer over in Askren/Lawler (my FOTN pre) and TWood, quite frankly I think that's a non-event. Should make quick work of Usman.

Anyone have an idea about the huge continuing price drop on Cain? Now down to 160... crazy.
Prob bc he hasn’t fought in 2.5 years and had had a variety of injuries. Anytime someone talks about not being able to stand more than 15 min without excruciating pain prob scares ppl but if he can get this to the floor he can win in his sleep

Yeah the uncertainty of Cain is what's driving the line down. He already says if he can't perfom well he's gonna call it quits. He should do what others have to beat Ngannou. Get it to the late rounds and watch Ngannou's power disappear.

With all the injuries and the long layoff I’m not sure Cain can go 25 minutes. Best bet might be on the under. He either gets Ngannou down early and finishes him or gets caught w w huge punch imo

Interested in sat nights bellator card. They need a good event after tonight’s shitfest of a main event between Mitrione and Kharitonov. Don’t think I’ve ever seen a fighter be carried out on a stretcher following an accidental kick to the groin and being unable to get up after 5 minutes timeout much less fight.

They are really building up MVP vs Daley. Personally MVP should destroy him. Daley has power, but MVP does too, is younger, way quicker, and Daley still has zero ground game. Only question is MVPs mindset following the loss of his father.

Kongo has been a terror on bellator and is a 4/1 underdog. Cro cop/Nelson could be fun, but someone should get dropped.

Real close. Daley fucked up when he let MVP get up off the mat in the 5th and take him down to end the round.

  • 1009 Velasquez wins inside distance -120
Thinking I'm gonna pund the fuck outta this tonight, because if he wins there is no way Francis can go the distance with the pace Cain will bring. There's always the chance he gets caught by a power shot but I will bank on his experience, defense and wrestling. Once it goes to the ground, Ngannou is in a world of shit. If you wantred to hedge, Ngannou +165 may be the way to go or even +175 Francis inside distance. I just cannot see this fight going 5 rounds

Also the card has a few live dogs, could see Caceres getting a boring decision, Fili beating an overrated Jury, and even though I don't know much about Barao's opponent...the old guard has been representing recently.

So did MVP win? Didn't see any of that card... Also, how about Kongo; he win?

For tonight, really have no clue what to expect out of Cain.. prior to all of his issues, he would KILL Francis, but have no clue about his physical shape and what to expect.. anyone have any information or leans either way? Francis has power but is SO 1 dimensional. Thinking it's either Francis by TKO/KO in rnds 1 or 2, or Cain winning via TKO or decision in the later rounds...

just looked at the results. looks like the mvp/daley fight could have gone either way

for tonight, so far am on A Sterling as my fav dog play.. really like his chances
also on Bermudez fairly big.

I'm on Felder and Francis on out

Everything about me should be on Cain too, Iowa Central CC (like the GOAT) then ASU, like he followed me around the country but I'm more of the thought if Francis doesn't catch him early this becomes a really awful shit show

I just can’t get those fights out of my head. Lewis vs ngannou, Stipe vs ngannou. He did virtually nothing. Cain will pressure him and get the fight to the ground. As you said unless Francis catches him early, which I doubt happens.

Like felder tho
