What do you want to bet?
lol

Thanks man...

I've been around long enough (since late 90s) to know a few things which I will leave in this thread.

#1. Never bet on HWTs unless you absolutely have to. The higher the weight class the more likely you get a freak KO like you did with Walter Harris today.

#2. Never bet on girls fights until you really understand both competitors. So you can bet on someone like Ronda because we have seen her fight her whole career. If you have someone you only seen 1 or 2 times, you don't really understand their game so don't risk it regardless of odds.

#3. Never bet on someone in their first UFC fight or second for same reasons as #2.

#4. Look up things like how long someone had for a camp and avoid those where one person was a late replacement. A lot of times odds makers put someone who is coming in as a late replacement as a big dog when they shouldn't be. I just avoid those fights for the most part.

Sure their are other ones but thats all I can think of at this time of night.

Good call

Congrats Dutch, we had a good run, i dont think the next tourney there will be somebody able to beat your record.
24 consecutive correct picks are no joke.
And you can increase that in the next tourney.

If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much - I told everyone I was gonna win and I did.

Midway through the tourny I purchased a blue name because I wanted to do a search on the forum, so I don't really need the blue name. I was torn on who to give it to between Pidgey and LMBB and decided to give it to LMBB because he has done a lot of work on the tourny and this way he gets something for his hard work.

Congrats LMBB and good job to Pidgey who made me earn it.

Look fwd to beating all of you again in the second tourny. Once I win it, I will retire from picking fights and let someone else with the third tourny.

thanx bro appreciate it. well see if this fukcin chip cre lies and dont give no blue name but it all good either way

great post on how to pick fights too. see u next touranmnent

Yeah that was some interesting tidbits there Dutch.

Not that you needed credability, going as far as you did speaks for itself. But breaking it down like that tells me you took this competition more serious than I did.

 

And for the record, both finalist at least once picked a girl fight to advance them in the tournament, so take that OP, you chip!  lol

ShowtimeKnee - Dutch is a conqueror? No! He's no Alexander! I'm Alexander! I'm the best ever. I'm Sonny Liston. I'm Jack Dempsey. There's never been anyone like me. I'm from their cloth. There is no one who can match me. My style is impetuous, my defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious. I want his heart! I want to eat his children! Praise be to Allah. I'm coming for you Dutch.

OK you are only 24 behind my record, no pressure or anything. Good luck in the 2nd tourny, you are gonna need it to beat me.

Thanks man... I live in Vegas so I look at betting odds all the time and try to find dogs to bet on so I think that may of helped me a bit. Should be fun to see how people pick in the second tournament.

7 years ago was the year of the upsets. Upsets GALORE.

 

I understand going by the odds, but all it takes is one upset. Solid logic though regarding the heavyweights.

 

I have to say I am actually Shocked that neither you or Pidgey picked Cerrone. I thought he was a lock for sure.
