I have keep my heart out of this one. I want Usman to stomp Colby’s face in, but this thing is going the distance. I was going to take Usman by Dec (+150), but Fight Goes the Distance is +110. It’s not worth the risk for 40 points
Pick: Fight goes the distance
This is going to be a repeat of their last fight. Zhang has apparently been putting a bunch of work into her ground game…. And I don’t fucking care. She might land a few takedowns that Rose will easily escape in route to her KO’ing Zhang before the end of the 3rd Round.
Pick: Rose by KO/TKO/Sub (+175)
What a fun way to start the PPV. I can see this fight going 2 drastically different ways. Chandler is a live dog and I mean really live. +175 feels disrespectful and if you want to just bet that I don’t blame you. That said I’m going a different route. Before Chandler’s loss to Oliver’a his last 3 fights were won by 1st round KO’s. His last 6 KO’s all occurred in the 1st round. If Chandler is going to win this fight I think he knows he can’t put score Gaethje. If this fight gets out of the 1st round I strongly prefer Gaethje playing it smart and out pointing Chandler the rest of the way.
Picks: Chandler Round 1 (+550) & Gaethje By 3 Round Dec (+415)
