I guess we will have to agree to disagree because Phil outstruck Yoel R1, stole round 2 on the feet and dominated the 3rd (1 judge gave him a 10-8. In that round.)

@tokengg nope I can see very well actually.. if you watched his last fights you could see he’s a trash can who doesn’t know how to throw a punch and has no control after he gets someone down. You could probably beat him up tbh and your a skinny fat kid whose never played a sport so.. ya

There are two lines that make no sense this week at a Pick Em

Predictions: 7 of 13 Winners, 0 Perfect, 395 Points   |   Tied for 623rd

One of them is Roberts vs Trinaldo in the UFC.  I think that Roberts is a steal at -105.  Trinaldo is 43 and looked career worst last time out against Dwight Grant.  Meanwhile moving to Sanford with Hooft, Hot Chocolate has made some key improvements.  Last time him he probably got a gifted Split Decision but this is a step down in competition with Trinaldo @ 43 years old.

And the other is Lewis Long at -110 or -115.  I know they list him as -145... This is currently a pick em on most books.  I think he subs Gouti ITD.  Gouti has a forgettable UFC run and has been facing mediocre comp.  He is moving up to 170 lbs for this fight and is 35 years old now.  I get he is at home in France... But that is really the only reason he is on this card.  I am going to be heavily invested in Long.

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 9 of 13 Winners, 3 Perfect, 590 Points   |   Tied for 52nd

Bader vs. Kongo II
Ryan Bader, DEC
Idk who wins this. Way closer than odds should be

Romero vs. Polizzi
Alex Polizzi, DEC
I really like this fight but unfortunately it’s very tough for yoel to win. I mean, we did so Polizzi hurt about 5000 different times in his last fight, and yoel does hit like a truck. But he’s also old and throws about 2 sig strikes per 3 minutes and despite being an Olympic wrestler he never uses it. There’s literally 0 quit in Polizzi so as long as he avoids bombs I think he’s just gonna overwhelm him

Larkin vs. Stewart
Lorenz Larkin, DEC
Actually pissed about this because Larkin vs Khalid/adams was gonna be good. I mean this could be ok but Stewart has panned out to be not that great

Shipman vs. Babene
Gregory Babene, SUB, R1
Babene deceptive record

Carvalho vs. Niedzielski
Pedro Carvalho, DEC
Tough one to pick

Bak vs. Leary
Soren Bak, SUB, R1
Wouldn’t be a Bellator card without a blatant mismatch.

Unpopular pick: Lucie Bertaud 

Sadura currently a 89% pick on here but watching any tape I could of her, I find her to look far too timid with her stand-up and I'm not overly impressed with her ground-work either. Can see Bertaud out striking her on way to a UD.

Most Confident Pick: Lorenz Larkin 

Lorenz Larkin does very little wrong anywhere and has faced a handful of higher caliber fighters and won. I think this is a mismatch. Larkin by UD.

Now is the time to bet Sadura!

Predictions: 2 of 4 Winners, 1 Perfect, 150 Points   |   Tied for 1086th

She has fallen from a -200 favorite to a +145 underdog. She has the age, height, and reach advantages, has fought and beaten better competition, and has some finishes to her name. Sadura is my favorite bet on this card.

Yeah I think I’m gonna put a bet on Polizzi as well, the only thing I’m afraid of is that when Alex gets hit he literally takes the hardest shots of the match, and if Yoel lands one of those shots on you I don’t care who you are you’re going to sleep, so hopefully Alex can avoid them because I don’t think he’s going to be able to control Yoel on the ground like Phil Davis was able to do either so it’s going to be interesting seeing what kind of game plan Polizzi comes out with.

They do this to fighters who win when they are not supposed to in Bellator events.  Leary was not given permission to beat Kiefer Crosbie and now he is being told as much by being fed to Davy Gallon and Soren Bak, lol... Sort of kidding.

I don't know the reason for the line movement on Bertaud. I'm hammering Sadura and have placed an additional wager on her.
