    Anyone else just now recovering from Jorge Smesh-crowdsurfing into what used to be a person?

  • yisman

    well that was odd

    fight went the distance despite Santos clearly having a severe issue with his left leg

    disappointing performance from Jones

  • Kassdog

    Am I crazy giving Santos 1, 2, 5 for the win. But we all know judges.

    I knew I should have clarified this when I said it, but I didn’t – so that is my fault. I included that part to give benefit of the doubt for the greasy Miami born comments that you did not make.

    Ah gotcha. Yeah that wasn’t a good comment to make either.
    aaaaaaaaand it did go to decision
    Decision!!!!!!!!!!

  • yisman

    decision could’ve easily gone to Santos

    Not a robbery but I would’ve given it to him

    I had Santos in my other lineups so I had it scored six million to 0 Santos

  • yisman

    the “greasy” comment was his last post

  • iron_tactics

    Man, looks like I got 11th place here. Play was to drop from Vera to Edmen but oh well thems the breaks. Not bad for 5 lineups. Getting much better at analyzing these.

    Congrats! This was only my 2nd time playing MMA DFS due to my unwillingness to re-open a DK account, still figuring out roster construction. Got really lucky with contest selection. Somehow won my $10 5man & scratched by in my 50/50 with a 327.5 lol. Not even close to cashing in GPPs obviously

  • scott33

    Just saw the judges scorecards, baffled by the round by round scoring as usual

    Thanks man. And welcome to the party that is MMA DFS

    Might have to wait for Johnny Walker to see Jones lose. And that isn’t even a confident might, just a slightly higher chance then Santos

    I thought Santos was gonna win by decision once the fight ended, super close fight, reminds me of when Mayweather fought Maidana for the first time. Judges easily could have scored it the other way around. Wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a rematch.

    And Johnny Walker versus Jones would be interesting, especially after tonight, showed the human side of Jones more so than any other fight. Had Santos gone in for the kill a few times I think he mighta knocked Jones out, but Santos kept stepping back to avoid Jones counters. He needed to just go for broke, even if it meant eating a counter punch.

  • someclevername

    Holy shit – just checked DK and I think that I tied for 1st w/Awesemo in the $15 contest for $7500 – I am not even sure it is real! And this is a lineup that I tinkered last minute lol please be real! Oh man, I needed this so bad!

    That was a good stoppage by Goddard on 2nd watch. Damn. Nunes in the last 3 yrs has taken out Tate, Rousey, Valentina (2x), Cyborg, Holm. I remember watching her get stopped by Alexis Davis in Cincy like 8 years ago. Never would’ve thought she’d become the female GOAT. After the Cyborg rematch if it happens I just don’t see anyone who can threaten her. Maybe GDR but idk

    Amanda Ribas could probably submit her if the fight somehow got taken to the ground, that is if Nunes don’t knock her out like everyone else.
