All I've got on my boy Ricardo.

I like Cote a lot, but I don't see him winning this fight.

He's got to catch Big Dog with a Big Punch quickly, or he will be subbed quickly.

I just don't see him doing it though.

this is a very tough one for me to pick. All Cote needs is one punch and Delagrotte in his corner is an advantage. I'm not touching this one

Yet again a 1/2 Favourite who is despised by the punters.

Here is a simple formula for what the odds would be in a real world totalizator format:
Total betting pool / Amount bet on winning fighter
= Return per dollar on winning bet.

Therefore a winning return on Almeida = approx 1.25 = 1/4 Fav.
Also a winning return on Cote = approx 5.5 = 5/1 underdog.

Wouldn't this be a much better way to run the vBookie at little to no extra effort?

At the moment the vbookie stands to win 600000 if Cote wins or lose 1300000 if Almeida wins. This is so unrealistic it isn't even funny.
