libranoelrose: the biggest redneck here: libranoelrose: the biggest redneck here: But I'm obviously biased, and willing to go back over any other picks from any other card.

I never said you don't make good picks, I just wonder why you always say others are idiots when their picks are wrong, yet when your picks are wrong it's the fighters fault.

Isn't that every gambler's nature? And I'm competitive. And dickish at times.

Fair enough.

Let's say that I wasn't a broke ass SOB and had bet 100 on every fight tonight. How much would I have won?

[www.tapology.com image 320x364]

And FYI, I ALWAYS blame the fighters when they don't win if I pick them. :P


No idea, I only paid attention to 3 fights tonight.

/lost $80 myself, didn't go crazy
//RJJ/Hopkins going to decision taught me that

downpaymentblues: Congratulations to libranoelrose for winning the UFC on FOX 4 Farkology title with an impressive 525 points.


I'm humbled just to be recognized. :D
 
2012-08-04 11:23:05 PM

downpaymentblues: Well Vera looks like he has all his teeth, so I guess I was wrong about that. Not sure what the whole mouthpiece thing was.

Vera is tearing up the press. Pretty funny.


That was a really heavy left. I'm pretty sure that put him back on his couch; he did the "what the fark is in my mouth" thing before eating a couple more nasties from Rua.

violentsalvation: libranoelrose: violentsalvation: lol way to be cocky Vera.

Went to smoke and missed it.

I'm recording it, but what did he say?

Reporter asked Shotgun what happened and why he got fatigued after the first round and what role his fatigue played in the fight, and Vera interrupted and was all B*TCH THAT WAS ME BEING BADASS NOT HIM BEING FATIGUED.


hahaha

He probably didn't watch the odds of the fights he didn't bet on.

He was messing with it in an earlier round too. I thought he lost a tooth or two. But yeah, he was doing the "who am I and what is this thing?" too, lol.

Nice picks


Thanks. I knew I should have stayed to watch the Miller fight, but this is the only day my GF and I have off at the same time. We try to spend as much of it together as we can.

Had I been watching, I'm SURE that my telepathy would have influenced the judges scores...

Vera said that in the past he thought he would scare people just because he was Brandon The Truth Vera, and that he got lazy in training because of it.

I "watched" the main card between being a dad and participating in this thread, will go back and watch the fights for visual cues for the future.

August looks like a really good month of MMA action. UFC, Strikeforce, and Bellator coming up.

That too. Sort of. I scan the odds for numbers that "jump out" and go from there.

Well here I thought I had about 2 hours until the Mars rover landing...

Boo! It's the 5th on Mars. I'm sure of it!

He didn't REALLY get his ass kicked, but he only attempted one take down and it failed, and he was outboxed for 3 rounds. He fought stupid.

Oh yeah, there were a LOT of regulars missing here tonight.

They sure missed out on a great night of fights, and an awesome thread.

NAAFS had a 14 fight card with a lot of people wiyh 0-0 records. Started at 6 Eastern though, so it's probably over.

Luckily they show them on Fox Sports Ohio here in one hour blocks each week, so I'll probably catch them over the next month.
 
2012-08-04 11:42:25 PM
I still have several beers left, is there anything else to watch? Or do I go back to Breaking Bad reruns?

Me too. But Machida got 3-5% of a Jones PPV, so Swick was an easy choice, given the circumstances.

They were both precision KO's, I would have been happy seeing either one get it.

Good. Even though I'm in Ohio, I've never liked the Indians. First became a baseball fan as a kid living in the suburbs of Detroit.

Yep. Plus my early baseball memories are pre-playoffs and divisions, when pennant races were insane. So the Tigers were HUGE deal in 1968, especially with McClain winning 31 games.
