Not wanting to get all nerdy on you, but...

40% of voters giving Chris 25% chance or more is not an even spread at all. If 40% of voters gave him a 50% chance or more, then you would have a point. But we are talking 25% - a one in 4 chance.

I'll accept its not as wonky as most Silva fights. Kinda looks like a similar spread to the Belfort fight, which funny enough was the last time Silvas opponent had odds under -300.

Look at it this way, if it was even then you would see close to 20% next to each option. But you dont. The first two options have well over half the vote. Come on breh. Thats what those percentage numbers next to each option are for. And clearly they say this is a lop sided vote.

I cant believe im debating this rubbish. Kind of fun though... although, I swear, my knob is shrinking with every minute im involved. I might need to back away slowly and switch my brain back into silly-mode.
