Does anyone else feel as though Suga should have fought one more time before facing Aljamain Sterling for the title? 

The man won a close split decision in which he did better than people expected however I think one more top 5 win would have helped the hype for this fight. 
This feels more like an old marketing tool in which Dana would fast-track a potential star however this might be worse for Sean's development if he loses badly.

I think it would be better for the UFC to rather wait for Aljamain to move up in weight if he is looking to and then put Suga in the title picture as Aljamain is a nightmare match-up stylistically for Sean. 
If Aljamain isn't moving up then the idea goes out the window but if they could have had Aljamain face Cory in a rematch instead and have Sean fight Chito in a rematch then have the two winners and losses face each other. 

Either way, I feel if the UFC could wait a bit before having Sean in the title picture they could benefit greatly from it. 
I mean Cory vs Sean for the belt if Aljamain moves up seems way more entertaining.

@Byakuya Kuchiki 
idk if it will ever be the right time. Aljo is gonna hold him down and just drain him till he gets the sub. God I hope Suga's TDD translates well in this matchup, but it's not lookin good. Maybe Aljo really is injured??? Luck is about the only thing goin for the candy man in this one.

Damnit, had money on Garbrandt. One of the few good dog spots I can see on this one.

ITD Rodrigues / Tilulin is a safer bet. Rodrigues wins majority of the time but ITD saves you in case he somehow gets caught

Stop doing what?

Every week I list some dog bets here and they hit more often than the line would indicate giving me great +EV. Then we go to the next week and it's the same story. lol

It's all good though, I find it highly amusing at this point.

I've seen you talking about how Yair Rodriguez, Marcin Tybura and Trevin Giles were all good bets here recently.

Now Cody. Enough bro. Save your money.

That's some selective memory. Like I said, all good.

I understand what you're saying and I agree with the sentiment. Betting is a a zero sum game though so it's technically not possible. Either you believe someone is a profitable bettor or you don't and you could be right and you could be wrong.

Weidman vs. Tavares
Brad Tavares, DEC
Weidman has glass prosthetics, and I just don't see any world in which he can pull this off. His chin is suspect even on a lightweight, which is good considering Tavares has the finishing power of one. I think Weidman is too slow to close distance on tavares for a takedown, too wary of his legs to throw kicks, too weak and old to land anything significant to the chin, and probably too broke to just retire. I think Weidman has that American wrester heart that'll take him to the scorecards given he doesn't get smoked, however I just think its much more likely for Tavares to win by unanimous than a KO, which he hasn't done since his Jotko KO in April of 2018.

If your betting underdogs your going to look stupid time to time because usually they’re a reason they’re a +400 underdog , if you spam betting heavy favourites off corse your going to win more bets, that how it work, it just you have to win more bets to make profit 

But also, it don’t matter if you bet favourite or dog betting wise if you know how gambiling work, bookies line fight correctly and take 5-10% off the line to make profit

People want to act like they have the “secrets to gambling”, or they’re method is better, but that all ********,
