if stipe manages to take francis down over and over again then the 9/2 stipe
pts will look huge

feel like I have to have a small bet on that rather than be kicking myself
tomorrow if it happens

I'd rather lose a small bet on stipe pts rather than the larger bet I had on the francis ko last time

it's funny my desire to see francis win was putting me off backing stipe

I've always thought stipe was the man to beat jones in the div though but the joy I'd get seeing francis ko jj would be up there with with bisping beating luke

I was all for backing Stipe, and most likely still will, but yesterday I saw that training footage of Francis and was blown away by his leg kicks. Fast and huge power. I wonder is this something new ? Not seen anything mentioned anywhere about his kicks, nor do I remember them in his previous fights.

Gone for a PP special, Francis to win by KO in round 2 or 3 7/2


I have huge respect for Stipe but if Ngannou makes the right adjustments it’s lights out for the HW Goat

The value on Chandler is gone now, was much bigger price when it opened.

Edwards at 2/7 or so seems v short v Nate, but I don't know how Edwards doesn't win.

Is Ferguson totally done? I like Dariush but levels etc and not sure he is close to the level of Justin and Oliviera aka the two guys who have just beaten Tony.

I know it's not MMA but Ben Askren is fighting Jake Paul in a boxing match next week. From what I have seen of Askren, particularly in his match with Maia, his boxing is atrocious. In contrast Paul is a tidy enough boxer. Paul is however around 1.8-1.9 on Betfair. Seems like a really good price unless I am missing something?

Early card today, first fight at 430pm. Best advice is to quickly pile into all my big priced picks without thinking:

Arnold Allen has a brillaint record, he can only beat what's put in front of him, so 2.2 looks value

John Makdessi is prob past it but maybe his experience will help here at 2.63

Surprised Mackensie Dern is not fav, took her on pts at 5.0

In the first fight I thought Palatnikov at 3.25 is worth a punt

Neither heavyweight looks great, Danho hasnt fought in 5 years but I don't think his opponent is super dooper, Danho at 3.4

Agree on Arnold Allen and Mackenzie Dern.
Was surprised both were slight underdogs.

I reckon dern gets her down and wins via sub or dern loses via decision.

Edit: I should have just edited my original comment above
