@PlusMoney re: reason for dog pick

For me, looking at their records, both were dangerous. But even on paper, Ihor was the more well rounded fighter given his ground strengths. Also, the activity was key, Ihor had double the wins and was a finisher also. Suldolski had not really been tested and didn’t seem to have alternative strengths should things get shaky.

Blackbet25 the 19-2 vs 8-0 stood out to me too but that was too easy of a reason and I usually fall for stuff like that so I didn't pick. 

Scared money don't make money as they say. Great pick by you

I was hoping Almeida would win.  That was a great first round.
