    Don’t forget about the money. The money is the motivation. Don’t let these guys fool you.

    Time doesn't wait up for anyone. That is the one thing that should have anyone who's betting GSP really nervous. And even if he's physically fine, still mostly in his prime, etc. it still doesn't mean his timing will be anywhere near what it was. He was just a master at blending his striking and wrestling, and timing was a big part of that.

    That doesn't mean you're wrong. Elite guys like him are definitely capable of coming back off long layoffs and performing well. He could do it. But to just assume he will? Man, I think it's a complete unknown.

    I just don't think Bisping is elite in any aspect besides cardio. I'm hyped for this because GSP brought me to MMA. I remember him KO Matt Hughes in HS and from then i was hooked. I just think he has more ways to win this fight.

    GSP/Bisping
    TJ/Cody
    Mas/Wonderboy

    I think with the new rules all 3 of these are potential candidates to end in a draw. They are all +7500. I'm betting all of them.

    Also, because sometimes crazy ass weird shit happens, I'm putting these 3 in a RR at $.50. If any 2 hit, it's something like $2800. If by some crazy miracle all 3 end in a draw, it's like $230k. For a $2 bet. So...yeah.

    I agree about Bisping honestly. And if I absolutely KNEW we were getting at least 75% of what GSP used to be, I'd totally be on board betting him big. My issue is that I just don't know what his timing will look like. And while we can say Bisping doesn't hit hard enough to make GSP pay if GSP's timing IS off, the Rockhold fight showed us that's not true.

    I'm not saying GSP is a bad bet. I just can't see anyone going big on this fight.

    So, what’s the general consensus on Brown/Gall?

    Was looking at Ramos vs Zahabi fight there, favoured Ramos just but Zahabi should definitely not be 2.75, playing him.

    Cheers, that’s what I thought. Most of Twitter seems to be on Brown but I can definitely see a path to victory for Gall.

    Sharp plays

    Team Elite
    Masvidal (team elite captain)
    Anderson
    Duffy
    Randy Brown

    Looking to extend my streak, one way or another I'll come out on top, I don't accept losses. Confident my guys go out there and dominate.

    Bro I’m so with you, I don’t know why, I’m not huge on Randy Brown potential wise in the near future anyways, but I think Mickey is been a shot overrated here and this is a perfect spot to fight him. Best of luck for anyone that’s on Gall as I might completely wrong. But I do think Randy wins this fight
