OK, fellas, had a decent run at UFC 104, let's try to keep the drive alive! I'm basing these bets on my usual sportsbook
(click there for the odds)
I'm pretty set on:
RANDY COUTURE -120 over Brandon Vera: I just think Randy will outsmart Vera, get inside his range, pin him against the cage and do his Greco-Roman + dirty boxing like he did to Gonzaga.
MIKE SWICK -220 over Dan hardy: Nothing against Hardy but I just don't think he's in Swick's class. Swick can totally hang with him on the feet but has a longer reach and is better on the ground...all Hardy can do on the ground is "survive" like he did against Marcus Davis.
The one fight I'm really unsure about is...
Michael Bisping (-115) vs Denis Kang (-115)
I think people are giving up on Bisping too quickly based on the one knockout from Hendo...he's a bigger fighter, strong than Kang I think. But I also think Kang is a better finisher, more dangerous, underrated. I'm TORN! Any advice here?
Also -- I'm all over James Wilks in the upset. The guy impressed the hell outta me at the TUF finale.
