    Only real bright spot of the night for me as a better and fan was TJ. I've thought for years that he's one of the top 3 fighters in the world along with DJ and Jones, and am just a huge fan, snake shit aside. Such a gritty performance by him to pull out the win, so that was great to watch. So badly hope they match him up with DJ now.

    On the other hand seeing GSP win and Hendricks lose to Borrachina really sucked for me, along with a lot of shitty NYMMA things. Please make MMA illegal in New York again.

    Bisping choked unconscious
    Cody knocked silly
    Joanna flatlined

    The question is....
    how do they top this??

    14% profit, decent night. Pissed that I took GSP Sub 1, Sub 2 and fight not to start round 3 pre-fight, but oh well. Shocked by the JJ loss, but everything else was fairly reasonable.

    Glad to see GSP come back, he won't stay at MW though. I give it 12 hrs max until there's rumours circulating regarding Conor v GSP and at the most 24 hrs before there's actual posts being made from Conor's camp about it.

    Conor has far to good a business sense to not do it, it's by far (and i mean BY FAR) the biggest payday he'll ever be able to grab in MMA period. So Ferguson might be waiting for a while.

    Decided to fly to NYC for the fight when I realized I had strong leans on all 4 main card fights.

    I doubt I will ever go to a fight where I bet all 4 main fights let alone win all of them

    Went HUGE on Rose. She is the WMMA GOAT

    Can't remember what Dana said at the post fight presser
    But I'm 99% sure it was GSP/Bisping

    Legendary card. Easily the best ever.

    Went with friends who don't really follow the sport but who joined me for 196 and 205 before. Maybe should never go with them again, they probably think 205 was a fairly boring event when it was well above average. No way the next event could match this or 196.

    I mean I fell asleep,

    But holy shit. TJ @ +155 lands, Wonderboy decision lands, Thug Rose lands?!! I seem to have fallen asleep for the most chaotic card ever.

    Didn’t end up doing too badly, considering I picked 90% wrong on the prelims. Think I may be up a u or broken even.

    Edit: Up 0.2u. Live to fight another day!!

    haha i know that feel bro.

    went $150 multi down for Thompson to win, Joanna to win and GSP by UD. Return would have been around $900.

    i thought I was lucky when TAB had some deal and i had a $110 bonus free credit to use so I thought only way I'll lose is if Bisping TKO's GSP so put the $110 for Bisping to win by KO for return of $418.

    HOWEVER, after joanna lost I went for my final risky safety bet and being a huge fan of tj and ludwig as well as seeing gsp's conditioning in weigh in i put $100 multi for TJ and GSP to win for a return of $4.86. So all in all came home with a $230 profit or so though would have loved the $900!

    Yeah got to be close to best card ever.

    The cherry on top for me was hearing Georges say fuck on the mic in his interview with Joe at the end. Special moment that.

    Congratulations to everyone who came out of this crazy card in profit tonight! I didn't bet, but it was fun to watch.

    I was impressed by GSP's performance.
