    Just wanted to comment that Meerschaert and Cannetti look like the exact same person on the DK app.

    Even though he’s a one trick pony and seems like he’s finished as a fighter… I can’t help myself from taking Alhassan at $7300.

    Very on brand for me to play him 3 losses in a row for $9k+ and then pass when he’s dirt cheap. Can’t wait for him to ko Di Chirico in 30 seconds flat.

    lol I’m gonna play Sam Alvey – think he’s gonna knock Turman out. If he throws some punches, I mean. Real “convincing myself to play Woodley” vibes in this one, but going for it.

    It always does that on my phone for some reason. Every card there’s about 5 different fighters.

    No, I mean they’re different pictures. They just look that much alike.

    I’ll play some of both, but that’s my lean, too.

    Turman can’t take a punch after that beating Sanchez put on him and I wouldn’t be shocked if Alvey is completely shot. I don’t think it’s a popular fight ownership-wise and I just can’t see it going to a decision, so I’ll chase the leverage.

    It makes no sense, but I’m going to try to go over the field on Aldrich too. She’s going to be significantly bigger than her opponent and nobody is going to play her. There’s always a wmma fight I’m underweight to that kills me… and since this is the only one on the card… I’m going for it.

    some of these guys need to win or receive their walking papers. sam alvey is one.as we well know no locks in ufc-mma.my money says this is close to it.mana martinez by rd.1 k.o vs. canetti.

  • someclevername

    “Mana Martinez is 4 pounds over and he weighed in pretty early” per @aaronbronsteter

    *Bout will proceed as scheduled also per Aaron.

    Don’t like it – need every possible resource to help protect the chin.

  • CityBoy410

    Hey fellas, if you had to choose between Sabatini and Alvey. Who would you choose?

    Alvey in GPP; Sabatini in cash.

    I think you’ll need at least 1 and max 2 of the winners from the Lee/Rodriguez, Emmers/Sabatini, and Alvey/Turman fights to win… and the latter are the least owned

    (or sorry… least “rostered”)

    Anyone find any tape of Gillmore defending takedowns?

    I’m on him. DC pointed it out against Trevor Smith, Muradov has a bad reset stepback that a camp like Roufus picked up on. Opens for shoots if timed right. Its a risky play but there is a flaw to exposed. The longer this fight goes the less confident I’ll feel in this scenario tbh. No way Gerald is winning a decision.

  • someclevername

    I have Lee here also for his wrestling upside & Drod has given up his back to get up before & you do not want Kevin Lee on your back, buuuut he is also coming off a layoff, two knee surgeries & possesses a questionable gas tank. My kind of play! He’s also fought the much better competition, but man 7 units lol boy howdy. I hope Lee comes through for him (and me)!
