Maximov looked confident

Predictions: 7 of 11 Winners, 1 Perfect, 405 Points   |   Tied for 1550th

Maximov even locked in choke on hes knees looked calm and like he's not worried by situation at all, and then the most basic turn put him in game over mode, weird development but good on Petrovski

Hit on my Petroski finish prop and fight ending in the distance, I'll take it. Odds were too good not to throw money on

Well guys this is a great outcome for future fights whatever happend to your bets in this one. Maximov is still a skilled grappler and might be underrated in his next one. Petroski looked tense as **** and I'm not convinced he will be any better in late rounds than we've seen before if he tenses up and forgets to breathe so he might be overvalued in his next.

Potentially a double-whammy of value on future bets in other words.

The bad part about fights finishing quickly is we have to deal with 20 min of filler before the next fight

I've picked Candelario to win this next fight. Shoots real fast between strikes impressively. Think Taira will spend 15 minutes looking  for subs from his back and lose on points.

That said....

Yeah I agree with some of yall's statements, with the pace Petroski was putting in that first round we wold've seen a completely different fight in rounds 2 and 3, but that's what Maximov gets for taking it light and thinking he was going to run through Petroski. Very glad that Petroski humbled him.

Let go Taira, I want some Asian in the UFC to do good, they’re like 5 at the moment doing well so it be cool to see more 

Also, he’s 22 so he has tons of potential
