Mouse is still the man. He should enjoy retirement and not worry about fighting again, he’s already cemented himself as one of the greats at MW

The $10 hail mary parlay died an ugly death.

$5 on Law o1.5/Nallo ML/Jeffery ML for $13
$5 on Magomedov ML/Ward u1.5 for $11
$10 on Eblen ML for $17.5

To end with a $31 profit isn't too shabby tho.

Ya 50-45 across the board. Eblen dominated him. Mousasi looked slow and not that great. I don’t think his heart was fully in this one

Tbh, Midsasi  was never that good, he left the UFC because he scared of Good middleweight 

He the best at beating welterweights and old people by split decsions

everyone talking about the loser and not the fact that Eblen literally dominated the supposed best Middleweight ever. Boy it sucks being white in this sport lmao.
Stipe doubles everyone in defenses at heavyweight yet everyone runs to jock on Cains nuts.
GSP has the most accomplished and well rounded resume with no steroid infractions yet the casual sheep would rather jock on Jon Jones' steroid using **** and call him GOAT.
Everyone talked about Glover like he didn't fight well after jiri subbed him as well. LOL What is this ****? What is wrong with you people?!?!

naw, his heart was in it. Eblens takedowns were too strong, evidently his striking was too. Eblen was better everywhere. Mousasi's heart was in it, Eblen is just better. That's why he dominated every minute of the 5 round fight.
Logic isn't your strong suit, is it?

Not really, he looked like he didn’t wanna be there and all week he talked about how he was just there for the paycheck and saying how he was lazy with the weight cut; he didn’t care, he was just fighting for the money. Nice try tho

Can't take anything away from Eblen though. I think he'd have beat Gegard even if the best version of Mousasi got in there. His wrestling pedigree alone makes him a tough matchup, and now it turns out he's got the cardio to go 5 rounds and what looks to be a solid chin to go along with his power. It's a shame we'll never see him in the UFC since he's been one of the better prospects to rise through the MW ranks.

People were saying earlier that Mousasi was severely underrated and perhaps the best middleweight in the world. After seeing what Eblen did to Mousasi, I think it's fair to say now that Eblen is severely underrated and perhaps the best middleweight in the world.

Eblen said on live TV that he's the best in the world. Who are we to think differently? Do you think he would go out there and lie that he's the best in the world when he's not? No. People don't do that and I'm the greatest predictor in the world.

BOOOOOOOOOOO! ******* BOOOOOOOOOO!!!! WHY DO ALL THE GOD DAMN WORST UPSETS HAPPEN?! NOBODY WANTED TO SEE MOUSASI LOSE! Why can’t we ever have any good upsets like Zombie beating Volk??? This was gonna supposed to be Gegards 50th win and he showed up like old dog****. Johnny Eblens not even that good. I’ll give him credit for his much improved striking, and obviously great wrestling which he’s always had, but a guy like that should NOT be beating Gegard. At least he’ll probably lose his first title defense to Tokov, but ffs

Also side note but how tf did I get 25th place with 11/14 winners. That seems kinda high for Bellator card not named 281 where not a single person got every pick right
