its pretty pointless betting on torres, you have to bet ALOT to get anything in return. on the slight chance tapia gets the upset you'll have more cash than you know what to do with.

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!

Tapia isn't a slouch. He could very well win this...

Torres has been through a lot of fights and is constantly overtraining. The way I see it he's a ticking time bomb for an injury.

Well I see it pretty pointless throwing your points away as I dont see Tapia winning at all. At least I get some points back this way, and it aint like there are any other fights to bet on.

If you think Tapia is goin to win then power to ya, just that when you placed your bet your saying that your not only rooting for Torres but you expect him to win. Seems dumb.

I'm not sure you understand gambling as well as you're trying to put on.

Betting on sure things is a real bad move.

Small bets on long shots who actually have a chance of winning is normally a pretty good move.

Torres is on a hell of a streak and is starting to get "undefeatable" odds. At 4:1 if I bet every time he's going to have to win 4 times in a row before I'm really at a long term loss at Vbookie odds.

Oh how I understand, I bet on the NFL every week and by the end of the year im in the green.

I also have been to the tracks and betting on the long shots all the time your gonna be in the red by the end of the day.

Hey man if you think the long shot has a chance of winning then thats cool I respect your bet, however you specifically said in your post that you expect Torres to win. Your post just didnt make any sense.

If you look at the favourites for every UFC ppv main event over this last year you will see that the favourite wins 75% of the time.

I bet mostly on coinflips and am very selective about long shots.

I've never been in the red betting on sports. Just keep me out of the casino.
