    This looks like an interesting fight card i might play a few lineups.
    There a number of live underdogs.

    9/13 by my count
    Goodbye bankroll

  • someclevername

    I’ve picked against Cejudo last 2 times out and it hasn’t ended well. Might be 3 after tomorrow lol cos I’m locking in Moraes & Suarez.

    Cowboy has looked phenomenal lately but a month turn around against Tony Ferguson? I don’t know about that.

    I dont have a lot of trust in Yan. I think this could be the UFC fight night where he makes the comeback. There also some fighters that could come back with a Fight Night Statement.

    50/50 Everyone says either you go with Cowboy or dont lol. We shall see. I will play light.

    Holy shiiiiiit, where do you even begin with this card? Loaded with potential explosive fights.

  • callmetouch

    101% Morales.

  • someclevername

    Cowboy makes my lineup look so much more appealing but actually taking him scares me bigly. Pretty sure my lineup is going to be chalky af.

  • thevogaman

    Yeah… Suarez, Cowboy/Tony , main event is where I’ve kept ending up…. and its going to be so chalk. Need to rethink this. I feel like one of those 3 is going to bust.

    Maybe Ansaroffs tdd is getting underrated here and she loses a decision where she doesn’t get completely grapple-fucked and Suarez only scores like 90.

    Maybe Cerrone/Ferguson is just a close exciting fight that makes it to the the 3rd and the winner scoring like 70.

    If Marlon doesnt get the finish by the 2nd… I dont think the main event scores well period.

    Still have so many lineups to make, but it looks like all of the 6.9k to 7.5k fighters have pretty decent paths to victory … so going Suarez/Val in the same lineup actually works pretty easily, too.

    Hell I’m flirting with using all 5 women’s fights in the same lineups too. Just all over the place on this card.

    Alot of that it seems is based on a bias since Moraes’ last decision was against Dodson who notoriously runs away. 5 Round decision is a lot of damn points
    I really don’t like the odds between Suarez and Ansaroff. Bullet getting the win is just going to happen but Suarez being that favored v Ansaroff doesn’t make sense.
    I like the price because she does have that high ceiling but I would not be shocked if Nina pulls an upset.
    Will be a sad panda if Stewart gets the KO on Lewis
    Popov, WIneland, Wineland, Popov, Popov is Wineland Finkle is Einhorn Einhorn is Finkle……….if one KOs the other likely have to have one of em

  • thevogaman

    Yeah, this card is weird cause there’s no line flip dog that will be chalk like Grant Dawson or Camacho was last week, but all of those 6.9 all the way to 7.7 guys have clear, good paths to victory.

    Maybe Darren Stewart is the guy we need… highest ceiling and lowest floor in that range. Maybe Lamas catches Kattar and submits him.

    I know I’ll be 0% Chookagian and that’s about all I can narrow down to. Just a really difficult but good card. I’m usually a WMMA hater but at least all of these women tonight belong in the UFC.

    Agree – also the first Assuncao fight before that. Those 2 guys (Assuncao & Dodson) are really hard to land on, as you said. Even Petr Yan only scored 80 vs Dodson and that guy is non stop, relentless pressure. I’m scared though, I’ve underestimated Henry twice now.

    That Popov / Wineland fight, ugh. Decisions, decisions.

    This card is just f’n nuts. Makes my head want to explode, but should be great entertainment (the card, not my head exploding).

  • someclevername

    Resisting the urge to tinker. I have concerns but I just can’t get away from Cerrone’s salary. If Tony does smash, I might have to throw a bet on Poirer cos the universe is simply not going to let Tony / Khabib happen.

    GL all – gonna be some serious violence up in this card (no jinx)!

    I was super confident on Munhoz and now i’m tinkering a bit

  • callmetouch

    If Stewart wins by KO and u don’t have him bye bye

    I’m on Munhoz so you’re prob correct tinkering him out lol. The only one I am confident in is Suarez and that worries me greatly as I feel like everyone I have been really high on lately has been rekt. Not you too, Tatiana. Not you!

    His fight vs Edmen gave me an ulcer.

  • yisman

    My ‘optimal’ lineup got stuck just short on salary (Shevchenko, Suarez, P.Yan, Hill, and Grasso forced me into either Eye or Ansaroff and I didn’t want that last piece, needed just a little more salary) so I have two lineups I’m not thrilled about.

  • Jordaneck

    Munhoz, Ivanov are my underdogs

    Im just here since DK deleted the wnba contests, I dont really follow the UFC and dont ever play any contests but I’m also 0% Chookagian but probably for different reasons. I read her name as “ChokeAgain” and said to myself “well I’m not using her” lol

  • thevogaman

    That’s a poor decision there. Sound effects win.

  • someclevername

    Didn’t pull the trigger on Eddie – that hurts. Fun fight though. “Power of the mustache” lol

  • thevogaman

    Yeah had basically no Popov so was getting worried at the beginning of the 2nd. Fun fight fo sho.
