    Man.. A few years ago, I would’ve picked the Super Samoan for sure, but the Black Beast seems kind of like he’s got that special mojo about him, and he’s the better quicker athlete.. Is Derek Brunson where the feel good Dan Kelly story gets derailed? It sure seems like it should be, but Dan Kelly has been unstopppable.. If Louis Smolka outwrestled Ben Ngyuen… Won’t Tim Elliot be able to do the same or has Ngyuen gotten better since then? Cutelaba over Henrique Da Silva all day.. Volkanovski over Hirota all day.. The rest of these fights.. I dunno.. What are your thoughts..

    Kim was already scheduled to fight in UFC 111 next week.

    He was going to fight consecutive weeks had Gouti not pulled out?

    Aw yeah, I was wondering why I saw Kim on DK lineup for today (wasn’t tracking this card until today).

    Got excited watching the fights then saw the lineups I made, do not drink and make lineups.

    Except for Tim Elliot, would have done that sober 100% even knowing how he lost so damn quick to Ben but i’m happy to see Ben get the win.

    Cutelaba was like

    I had a feeling that Ben would Win no pun. But I went 70-30 for Ben. Where I sort just hooked myself was with Frankenstein I was hoping for an upset and if that happened I’m pretty sure I would have won with 600 plus points. I am live in many others will have to see how the next fights play out.

    Wow that was laying out anyone what a knee Hooker… Pearson is tough as hell but that was a shot from hell.

    Lewis just totally quitting ruined my night.

    Apparently he didn’t train to go more than one round.

    Lewis totally comes across as a sore loser… Just not long ago he was talking about fighting Ngannou after he gets past Hunt. He talks about Overreem and Werdum and how if you blow on there chins they drop.

    He just thought that after he wins he should get the next title shot and get big bucks because that is what he needs. Now he comes out and talks retirement but needs money lol… What he did not expect is having to put in hard work to earn big bucks and a lose would seriously set him back big time to a title shot. Like maybe years.

    He looked so lazy he complains all the time about traveling or how weak other opponents are and he totally just quit because he has no gas tank… I really liked the Black Beast but last night he showed his true fighting colors. All he was after is the money and in MMA if you don’t put in the work to move to the top level your going to get exposed and that is just what happened to Derrick Lewis.

    Well it felt like he had already contemplated retiring from the way he was talking. If so, that’s never a good person to put your money on…someone with one foot out the door dreaming about their wedding next week. Wish I had known

    Same.

    He talked after the fight about how supposedly his back had been bothering him all week and he claimed that was why he couldn’t move.

    Based on the information I had, Lewis was value, but if he actually had a back problem and was contemplating retirement, then he was a terrible play.

    I managed to min cash, but it would’ve been quite a bit better had Lewis shown up.

    We’re on to next week

    I guess we all could have read in between the lines a bit better but conflicting reports prior to fight time threw many people off. For one if he had back issues prior and was evaluated by medical doctors and they just let him fight that is serious. They Pulled Cain from fighting and many others as well.

    I had more Hunt cards than Lewis but if I would have thought about it better I should have pulled all cards with Lewis.

    Where I went wrong is having faith in Non stop ass packed Dom Steele. If we put that much Faith in Hooker instead who was cheaper my cards would have been way better. Like said on to this weeks card that starts at 3:30 am my time. Get a nap early…
