I'm very excited/nervous for the main event for other reasons than the other fun fights. I have had a rough go gambling lately, (not UFC, but NHL playoff hockey has absolutely killed me) and for awhile have felt like Rashad had a better than 5:1 chance at this fight. I'm still being offered +410 odds on Rashad and despite JBJ being one of my fave 3 fighters, I just feel like I have to make the value play and eat the crow if Rashad gets dominated. If it's close, it won't make it easier to kiss the $ goodbye, but I'll know it was the right play (as far as value vs. quality of competition is concerned).
Already have $20 on Rashad, and heavily debating putting down another $100 on him. Been battling all week with this idea. Hmm...I love Rashad's ability to adapt and like someone said - turning a bit into GSP after the Machida fight (despite the weak 3rd rounds vs. T. Silva, and Rampage)...I fully expect a JBJ win, but Evans winning and me not capitalizing after all this thought...haha, time to bet.
