Been a while since a UFC card, this one is up against some great college football matchups tonight. It will have half my attention with Nebraska/MSU going on.
Chas Skelly defeated Kevin Souza with a second round rear naked choke in an entertaining fight. Skelly is someone to look out for. +2 Units
Thiago Tavares tapped out Clay Guida with the fastest submission in UFC Featherweight history at 39 seconds. Shocking Guida doesn’t lose more often like this with his reckless takedowns. A bet I was more than happy to lose. -1.15 Units
Yan Cabral vs. Johnny Case went to a decision. Johnny Case won an entertaining enough fight. +2 Units
Gleison Tibau’s hairline is absolutely ridiculous
Abel Trujillo showed absolutely nothing early and the fight was stopped after a rear naked choke. For sure an early stoppage but Trujillo was on his way out anyways, he protested but Tibau got the win after 1:45. Awful performance by Trujillo -3 Units
John Anik lets us know that we are going to “Two ranked light heavyweight fighters” and we’re on to Corey Anderson vs Fabio Maldonado, pray for the 205 division. -1 Unit
Gilbert Burns vs. Rashid Magomedov, I bet Magomedov by decision and was way too wrapped up in the Nebraska game to pay any attention here. I cashed the ticket. +1.3 Units
Oliviera absolutely crushed Hallman in the third round with a right hand and won by knockout.
The Bantamweights got put on notice by Thomas Almeida. Absolutely crushed Anthony Birchak in the first round. Made him do the stanky leg, his knees may be worse off than Seth Rollins, like he got pumped with a shotgun! -1 Unit
Glover made light work of Cummins in the second round, Herb Dean stepped in to stop the fight by TKO. Glover looked good, top guys like Jones, Cormier and Rumble are levels ahead of Glover but the rest of the division Glover will play gatekeeper to. -2 units
Vitor got the TKO victory over Henderson in a couple of minutes of literally nothing after the first flurry of strikes was exchanged two minutes in. Awful stoppage, bad fight, whatever I won. +5 Units
4-5 & +2.15 Units on the night
7-6 and +3.35 overall, back next week with the chick fights
