    Seeing a lot of easy picks here, but not the main.
    Some initial reads: – I’d like Krantz as a surprise scrapper on very short notice surprising against most fighters, but not against Luque. Yuck. – ACJ, Anderson, and possibly Ramos seem underpriced – Like Ladd to win but prefer Davi at the price, expecting same result as last time. Outside chance Sijara takes a decision – Pereira’s a can killer but lost to Todorovic who should be on the ufc radar. Bizarre athlete overall. Not a fan of Roberts but should win here. This fight doesn’t add up, need to look deeper. – Cummins/Herman is the epitome of decision material – Is Dawson clean? Remember waiting for him a few years back and he popped. Interesting matchup if all is clean.

    Now that my golf lineup is officially toast let me move on to another sport I’ve done terrible in the last month.

    Locking in Luque & Davi. I know anything can happen in MMA (boy, do I know – see below) but shouldn’t have to worry about these 2. Shouldn’t…

    I know Spencer has the BJJ but I am not sure she has the wrestling to get Meeegan down. Megan going to be, obviously, much bigger – she said she spent that fight camp before the Zingano fight drilling TDD but that one didn’t last long enough for us to know (was on Zingano – TOE to the EYE – see above). Now she’s had even more time to work on it but I really hate making assumptions about fighter improvements until I’ve seen it. That size difference though…also striking difference…

    Kevin f’ng Lee – again, will his cardio improve not cutting as much weight? Don’t know. I’m leaning RDA – I’m not sold that Lee can do what Usman & Colby did, but damn this is a tough fight to call.

    Danny Roberts has to survive the first round of flying, spinning, flipping attacks from Pereira before he gasses out – it takes a lot of energy to fly and spin and flip. Roberts not known for outstanding cardio either, or an iron chin for that matter, but I really don’t see him losing to this guy.Other than repeatedly going into the lion’s den against Silva (poor fight IQ) I thought he was winning that fight before the (maybe) verbal tap.

    I love playing Chucky Olives but I’m taking Luque & Davi so prob not going to get there.

    Someone please talk me out of considering Charles Jourdain cos I know he’s most likely going to get decisioned by Decision Des (Pearson fight doesn’t count lol).

    *Obligatory SHOEFACE (not an endorsement – just love saying SHOEFACE).

    Going Anderson just because of size/skill combo.
    Pereira was a dick in faceoff with Roberts, that was a mistake.
    Lee was a dick in faceoff with RDA, and RDA was surprised?
    Got a weird feeling about the Lentz fight today for some reason, think my gut is being a dick to me.

  • thevogaman

    Yeah, my gut is messing with me too for this card. I want the main event and 3 9k guys… so I’m convincing myself Eubanks, Lentz, even Krantz (as a salary punt) will score well enough in a loss or lucky win that GPP.

    Luque is, and Ramos seems like a free square… and I just don’t see the mid tier fighters scoring well for some reason.

  • callmetouch

    Not making any $15 lineups today. First time in a while! KEVIN LEE 100%

    It feels like RDA/Lee already fought before and Lee won that lol

  • GoldenWolf87

    2 lineups today as well. The June 1 fight card looks a bit better.
    I think RDA wins it. After two losses already. I think his in for the kill shot to grab the win with the experience.
    Lee has the youth alright. But does he have ground game?

    Mr.Lee has pretty solid ground game.

  • thevogaman

    I think the winner of RDA/Lee will be in the winning lineup and I went 50/50 on it. Does Lee have the gas to wrestle 5 rounds? Lee by decision or RDA by finish? I think Lee has the higher ceiling, but I just dont want him to win.

    At least RDA won’t quit; he just needs to force his own grappling instead of defensive wrestling. Tire Lee by making him defend the takedown instead of a counter kickboxing match.

  • callmetouch

    Such a weird card. Heavy favorites. Only 3 dogs I like is Lentz/Heinisch/Peirera

    same way more rda tho the line is swinging lee’s way and he has way more upside

    I actually really like my lineups and this card. That usually ends up in a total failure, but maybe not today! I haven’t seen much talk about Dawson, but I like him. Main event I’m split 55/45 Lee/RDA.

    Good luck everyone!

  • Cocomilk

    dawson will be massive chalk… a favored wrestler priced in the under 8k… if he scores a 100 im cooked

    Fully fading Dawson takes balls! I have him in 20/28 so if he flops, I’m likely f’d. I hope he gets knocked out if he loses as I do have a few of Trizano.

  • callmetouch

    100% Lee. 70% Heinisch 70% Lentz. ROOOOAR
