    Poirier or Muradov as the last one in with Conor already in MVP? RG reeeally like Poirier

    I mean probably Muradov since you’d be wanting a win and Poirier would be losing if Conor is the MVP.

    Play Poirier in the MVP and Muradov.

    Why are some of my DK entries red? I dont have any fighters that arent fighting in them?

    Not one LU with a KO win from Conor?

    Planting my flag on him not knocking out Poirier, that was my lean anyway and it seems the industry and public in general is looking at a McGregor win or KO. He’s +255 but i’m hearing chatter like he should be +850 or somethin. Even so, it’s MMA, Holm beat Rousey as a +830 underdog by the way, Rousey was -1400…..same as Agapova vs Dobson too lol.
    Anyway,
    It seems to me people are off on Poirier cause of his Hooker fight, and people are down on Hooker as well. Maybe i’m wrong, but it also looked to me like Khabib was way more willing to stand vs McGregor than he was against Poirier, in fact, he knocked him down if I remember correctly, and Khabib ain’t where he is cause of his exceptional stand up.

    Playing Poirier would be banking on the ME going 5 and Conor still getting the win, in which case Poirier could still clear 100 but obviously that’s not the most likely scenario. Muradov it is.

    I think it’s from having Tsarukyan or Frevola

    Actually stacking it might not be a bad idea if no underdogs win. I’m gonna have 1 lineup that has both instead of fading in 2

  • CityBoy410

    So far all remaining fights are good right?

    Yeah, I mean I like the stack idea… but not when you can also afford Muradov instead.

    I had a bunch of DK tickets and 6 FD ones

    spent so much time on DK I almost forgot I had FD. Tried RG optimizer, but the projections were awful. I tried to fix the obvious mistakes as quickly as I could (they had Poirier top projected score of night, Ribas low projection, etc.), then ran five lineups. Stuck those on and manually made one. Not pretty.

    edit: turns out RG has two sets of projections and their default set is awful. Now I know.

  • thevogaman

    Albazi at 40%+ in the Throwdown was a wee bit higher than I would have guessed.

  • joephoto

    I had 7-DK tickets for tonight. As always I made 7 different lineups manually.
    Wouldn’t know how to use any optimizer thingy.

    Arman Tsarukyan in all 7 lineups, 3 have the main fight stacked.

  • thevogaman

    I’m in that Survivor Rd. 3 and damn it’s amazing how many tickets ChipotleAddict, moklovin, & papagates have in there. … compared to my one.

  • marker0357

    Albazi

  • thevogaman

    I wonder what kind of control time Lentz gets for those guillotine attempts.

  • marker0357

    Evloev SD

    Didn’t know that until you mentioned it .. realized after I saw your post and the other projections the first set it defaulted to was probably their thoughts on most of their ceilings, oh well.

  • yisman

    a judge scored that fight for Lentz

    the incompetent judging never ends

    The first round could’ve gone either way but rounds 2 and 3 weren’t close.

  • mccoolio

    They gave him 50 seconds for round one and Evloev had almost 2:30 lmao

  • someclevername

    lol Evloev getting out of nasty spots vs Grundy & Lentz reminds me of Boris from Snatch “apparently it’s just impossible to kill the bastard”

    Agreed on how insane it is. Did they bring Cecil Peoples back? That guy, holy hell was he blind

  • thevogaman

    Don’t think either Albazi or Evloev will be optimal.

    Split decision was a joke.

    I’m convinced he could’ve fought another three rounds after that.

    Lentz, OTOH was not only beat up, he was extremely fatigued.

    In my opinion, that fight was not close. Lentz never did any damage. Yes, he tried several times to get the choke but contrary to what the announcers were screaming (HE’S GONNA TAP!!!!! IT’S TIGHT), it didn’t look like he was ever that close to getting a tap.
