dos Santos vs. Rozenstruik
Jairzinho Rozenstruik
KO, Santos is Chinny, unless he can stick and run for 3 rounds he's going to sleep again.

Herrig vs. Jandiroba
Felice Herrig
Took a Prop bet +380 Herrig by Dec. If she can keep it standing she has a chance, that is if her knee holds up.

Kamaka III vs. Kelley
Kai Kamaka III
Probably by Decision. Kelley has fought one tomato can in 4 years. Kamaka recently fought, should have the edge.

Free. I shucked, cooked and prepared 200# of lobster in past two days. Bodies into soups/stocks/sauces. Some for lobster Mac n cheese, lobster lasagna, salad, soup (lobster bisque and gumbo) and more. I have a lot of herb trim/larf/leaf/stem from..like because if you plant it it grows. I was reading your post about pasta at work and thought I should’ve infused my ganja trim into the country club menus.

You probably smell a gross mixture of body sweat, lobster, whiskey and ganja.

Souza vs. Yoder
Livinha Souza
I laid -145 on the fav. Probably a decision. Yoder knows how to lose close fights.

Guys I like O’Malley I’m a fan, and I also like Vera so it sucks to know one of them will have to take an L and they are both bright prospects. But I think tomorrow will be a learning experience for O’Malley. Not everyone gets knocked out so easy, and not everyone will stand and bang. I’m expecting a close fight with O’Malley starting very strong, but Vera ending Very strong. Overall I see Vera as the more well rounded fighter and also more tools to finish. BUT I think this one is going split decision, I think Vera rightfully wins a close tough fight but judges giving it to O’Malley to keep the hype train rolling forward. Such a tough fight, and people are underestimating Vera so bad, which sometimes can push a fighter to really perform.

Guys there is no way I’m taking TJ brown, most of his losses are to guys with a losing record and most by finishes. Same with most the guys he’s beat just cans. I don’t even know Chavez, and not really impressed by him either. But TJ Brown has red flags all over, and for that I’m Gambling on Chavez.

Just the main card, care less about prelims its filler expect more you will likely be let down.
One of the first 3 should be fight of the year or at least a candidate, other ok fights.

Only 5 of TJ Browns opponents had winning records.. see what I mean? Under no circumstances can I be impressed by that.

I'm surprise about how many people think DC will win. When a guy talk about retirement as consistanly as DC, he probably should already have done it
