I’ve watched that Smith fight over and over and i dont give a **** who you are that **** was rigged so they can place bets on worthy who was a HUGE underdog and make bank laughing back home.

Either way pretty good night for myself and so many of my friends. Sandhagen, Diaz vs Pettis over 2.5 Rds, Yusuff and Costa parlay, and betting on underdog Stipe. Great night of profits. 

Next card I got betting on is Zhang to win by being the more technical, smarter, and quicker fighter. Zhang will outstrike Andrade in her home country! 💰🦈

Hey i'll always admit when i don't have that great of event and 241 wasn't great for me.... couple unlucky breaks tho..... I switched my pick from kenney to bermudez once the UFC & commission cheated for bermudez by making it a catch weight and i felt Romero deserved the W and Devonte smith losing was a fluke and quite honestly looked like the fix could have been in there and that DC loss was flukey too up 3-0 gets caught but it is what it is this is the fight game **** happens.
