    Lazzez out already. Stolze free square maybe?

    Edit: Nm… Jared Gooden.

  • mnstone14

    barbarena at 9600 is insane

  • jki7p6

    Nicco well never make it to fight day, hope they have a backup.

    Early lines has Stolze at -200, he might end up being the free square this week. Not sure if I’ll have him in my lineup, though.

  • thevogaman

    The Ronnie Lawrence/Trevin Jones matchup seems like the fight to target. I think I’ll be 65% Lawrence and 30% Jones.

    Hard for me to trust a $9300 Strickland to make the optimal with a boxing-based decision against a good counter-striker that starts slow. I’ll probably keep my exposure low for both of them.

    Knockout Kings – Put in your best lineup this week.
    Only pays 1st and 2nd place.

    I’m right there with you on the Lawrence vs Jones matchup.

    So is the UFC 265 card headlined by a interim heavyweight tittle fight and if so, how should Amanda Nunes feel about that?

    It’s a good card, but nobody is paying to see Nunes squash Pena. I don’t think we’ll see Nunes as a PPV headliner again unless it’s a rematch with Valentina. Is what it is.

    Yeah, the line has pretty much held up, too. It seems like more of a pick ‘em to me. Curious what salary Gooden gets. They might both end up being free squares…. or like 2 50% Off-squares.

    Yeah I know that fight can’t be the main PPV fight, it’s just crazy the the Female Goat of MMA can’t get a PPV headliner. I’m sure she’s getting paid well enough to satisfy her I guess.

    Nunes has headlined 4 PPVs as champ, but only 1 did the numbers UFC are looking for (vs Rousey). Very few people can sell a PPV alone. Shev remains her only real competition, but those 2 fights weren’t terribly exciting. A rematch vs Cyborg could have been interesting, but oh well.

    Not breaking news, but it really is remarkable how many times you see McGregor at the top of this list

    Well Nunes is out of the fight now so I guess it’s a good thing she wasn’t headlining this card.

    Stolze 7k & Gooden 6.8k :0

    I have Montano in a few of my lineups but that weigh in got me thinking about swapping her out.

    two fights just got pulled from the card

    Nicco Montaño vs Wu Yanan
    Trevin Jones vs Ronnie Lawrence

    She only missed by 7 pounds, what’s the big deal?

    Et tu, Ronnie? Damn it!

    You seen her when she got on the scales? I knew it was a wrap then.

    Yeah, she looked like a zombie. Not great! Seven pounds is ludicrous – will be shocked if she doesn’t get cut.

    I didn’t get to watch them live, but when I saw the mma junkie headline of 2 fights off it was like ok Nicco and who? Thought maybe Benoit or Gooden, definitely wasn’t expecting it to be Ronnie Lawrence. Major bummer. I’m going to end up playing Buys or something now.

  • TomBradyBlueMamba

    Where is Garcia on DK? They have his opponent Greutchenzuzjkdk whatever but no Garcia.

    Edit: Ha. Found him, in my lineup.
