Whoa, those are some ridiculous odds. Mitrione is quickly becoming one of the most overrated fighters in the UFC.
It's not so much Mitrione as it is his opponent. Mitrione is on his way to being a solid B level fighter. Morecraft has not impressed me in the slightest bit. I only bet big when I feel safe. I think it's pretty damn safe to say Mitrione will dominate this fight. If I'm wrong I'll be right here after the fight to weep about my 110K being lost.
Edit: Also, put your money where you mouth is
RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.
