Just in case you missed it. Italians are not good at fighting.

This is a card where you really can't feel bad for having picks wrong. A lot of these fights leaned one way, and just ended up going the other. I don't think any well-informed fan would have argued that Cannonier CAN'T beat Hermansson, it just could have gone either way. It was a great card for gambling, as I picked up a bunch of those underdogs, including OSP and Cannonier at +220, and Lansberg at +350!!!

I'll admit that I've been wrong about Brandon Davis, though. I genuinely thought he was a good fighter. He is not. I can't blame anyone for that one but me.
