    Fear of handling USADA bottles?

    Damn, would have been a good scrap.

    Some pretty good underdogs on this card. I’m not one to actually place bets on fighters I usually just play dfs. But, for however good barber is she should never be a -1000+ favorite vs anyone. Roxanne is a pretty seasoned grappler who has decent size on barber. I still expect barber to win. But I’m very tempted to place a bet on Roxanne.

    Hearing some undercurrent of this being a retirement fight for Cowboy, win or lose.
    If he’s banging (which he claims hes going to and we know he wants to), im not playing him.

    Agree on the Barber/Roxie read.
    Really like Halloween Gastelum against Dober,.
    Kind of like Touchy against Yusuff.

    Also like Mo Green ko against Mr Ezekiel.

    It came from Gallagher and it’s speculation.
    Trying to decide who i’m going to go 100% on. Three lineups so i’m not some heavy lifter but still, that’s $75 dollars of confidence damnit.

    I’ll be so upset if he goes that route, his grappling is superb. His standup is good obviously but Mac will pick him apart on the feet. Really disappointed with this card, worst PPV card I’ve seen in a long time. Outside of Pettis/Ferriera, nothing interests me. Never thought I’d pass up on a PPV featuring Cowboy/Mac but here we are.

    Roxanne might have a chance because of size, i am tempted to give Roxanne a chance as a underdog as well. Ya know its going to be a crazy night full of twists and surprises. Conor might win for sure. But i feel a few underdogs might surprise everyone this sat.

    Looks like a difficult mma fight card.

    I just flew back from Vegas.
    Possibly the buffets, because I gained weight also.

    I’m sure we’ll find out

  • someclevername

    Looks like Kelleher/Ode gets the bump to the main card and not Fili/Yusuff

  • Kassdog

    They need them on the prelims to sell the ppv

  • GoldenWolf87

    In the end guys i still think Conor will win this not so great PPV.
    I am not sure if this is a good fight card where you have to put so many lineups, i will play light.

    Especially with 11 fights (10 really with Holm/Pennington). If all goes as expected (most times it does) gonna be a lot of ties.

    Locks: Conor, Barber, Oleinik
    Value: Elliot, Fili, Mazo, (Oleinik)
    Fades: Holm

  • Rift

    Ledet has been in matchmaker hell and is definitely not a lock, but if your running a parlay he’s a good fighter to throw in there. He should be a decent favorite yet is somehow an underdog, it doesn’t look like the oddsmakers took into consideration who he faced in those last two fights where he lost.

  • yisman

    DK didn’t make the contests big enough

    the 24.6 already filled

    others almost full

    this is a huge event but the contests don’t match that, unfortunately

  • joephoto

    Are these 3 rounds ? With only McGregor being possibly 5 rounds ?

    Yes, all fights other than title fights (which there are none tonight) and the main event are 3 rounds, so the McGregor-Cowboy fight is the only 5 round fight.
