    Looking at the DK salaries, I think I’ll be targeting the mid range very heavily this week.

  • jki7p6

    Starting with Hall and Rodriguez.

    Thinking there is disrespect on GDR/Ladd pricing but thinking GDR pulls out with injury before fight anyways.
    Some other dogs I like here too.

  • BigDaddy326

    I am perplexed with the salaries of GDR and Ladd, most people i am seeing are picking Derandamie, am I missing something ? Is this gonna be a chalk GDR and contrarian Ladd lineup kind of week?

    really you like Hall? I just can’t get out of my mind what a little puss he looks like and his last wins have been against old done veterans, I think Elkins can smash him

  • thevogaman

    I’m finding this card very difficult to take any strong positions one way or the other. It’s almost the exact opposite of last weeks card.

    I think my only take is that I really don’t see Liu Pingyuan or Ricky Simon paying off their salaries.

    Also, I would guess that Rodriguez will be the highest owned fighter by a pretty large margin.

  • NewMike

    Because Hall beat the GOAT

    I don’t know that I can go against the single greatest tattoo in all of sports

    LOL. Somehow that tattoo suits him perfectly.

    That, sweet imanari rolls and heel hooks, and heavy respect from the Diaz bros (something they dont give out easy) even after beating him in a bjj competition…dont care what he looks like.

    lmao how have I never seen this video? Oh man choosing between this or the tattoo? I got a real dilemma on my hands here.

  • callmetouch

    Card is 15 minutes away from me yet i won’t be going >_< Pricing is odd (GDR,Faber) feels like winning LU will leave plenty on the table

    The line movement on Elkins (plus his price) has me thinking he’s going to be highly owned. Hall with that finish upside, but I’m thinking this fight will be crap.

    Lot of fights in this middle price range that could score poorly. I wouldn’t be shocked if Van Buren/Souza, Elkins/Hall, Moraes/Fili, Morales/Lopez, Pingyuan/Martinez, and Vettori/Ferreira all see the judges. Which means based on my track record that all 6 will end in the 1st and you’ll need 700+ to win.

    You’re willing to miss out on hearing Aspen Ladd shrieking like Monica Seles when she lands weak ground and pound live?

  • callmetouch

    Monica Seles

    You mean Arya Stark shrieking like Monica Seles?

    Haha he even sent me a picture. Apparently he was at a Starbucks by himself…..I think he has family or friends who lives here. Also congrats on your big win last week!!!!! How many lineups did you make? 2?

    Wild. “What did you do today?” “Oh nothing much. Ran into Khabib at Starbucks, you know, the uzh.”

    Thanks!!! That was a crazy night lol I didn’t even realize I had a shot til it was over. I only play 1 lineup.

  • someclevername

    Feel like Emmett is getting a lot of love – anyone like Bektic?

    Tough one. Elkins already fought him so I’m sure they studied the game plan and are well prepared. Interesting that all TAM fighters are underdogs besides ping

  • Kevin

    Am I wrong to like most of the Alpha Male guys, except Emmett? Someone said it earlier here, that it’s hard to take a huge stance in one direction or the other, on this card. I really like Aspen Ladd, as well, and two of the bigger underdogs in Turman and Allan. A guy like Allan is tough, and has that “puncher’s chance”. He just has to get by the reach. Turman is also a tough kid that looks to me like a good submission fighter, and if he gets Roberson, an ex kickboxer with almost no ground game down, he’s toast! I don’t think salary will be an issue at all this week. What are you guys getting behind?

  • someclevername

    I seem to recall Ping breaking his hand vs Martin Day and winning a sketchy decision on the Beijing card. Think I’m gonna have to take another shot on Martinez. Me and many others I’m sure lol.

    I hope their gameplan isn’t to get completely destroyed for 14+ minutes again… but I think that’s Emmett’s path to victory. Weather the storm and hope Bektic is gassed out and helpless by the 3rd. Though, that probably means Emmett wouldn’t score very well for DK.

    The fight has decent ITD compared to a lot on this card.
