    forget the lunging, colby punches are slow, telegraphed and lack power.

    this isnt even taking into consideration setting traps or proper footwork, which is completely out of his skill set.

    Sure, I can understand that but I still favour Covington to get it done. Woodley also willingly puts his back to the fence in every fight which would be great for Covington to cage push or shoot, Covington is a great cage wrestler.

    Covington also says he made Woodley quit in the gym. They were meant to go 5 rounds and Woodley could only go 3, couldn't handle the pace.

    Bottom line, if Woodley doesn't get an early KO, he's in deep water, he can not match the pace and pressure of Covington.

    And LOL at all the people that are acting like Covington is a striker and he needs to strike to beat Woodley. If your name isn't Damien Maia, Colby Covington is taking you down.

    You left out the most deserving man. The one who’s always overlooked. “The Problem” AKA “The Nigerian nightmare“ Kamaru “Mo’fuckin” Usman!

    If he runs through EWM like I expect in December and Woodley still doesn’t have a flight scheduled, there is no way you can deny a fighter with EIGHT straight victories his title shot. At least you should have Usman vs. Covington for the number one contender match.

    I think the Nigerian is the most dangerous man in the division right now. Only getting better.

    Congrats on the CC win though. I know we were in the minority on that one.

    By the way, not sure if anyone noticed but Maia it actually ended up closing as the favorite. I put an extra hundred dollars or Colby directly before the fight started and he was -101 (IIRC)

    Yeah thanks, good win, fight went exactly how I thought it would too, just a great event for betting.

    Usman is a problem for everyone but why in the hell is he fighting Meek? that fight makes no sense. Usman should be getting a step up in competition, he's on a good win streak but he's not beating high level fighters so I don't think he deserves to be in the title conversation right now. I wanna see him beat a top 10 or top 5 first.

    Usman vs Meek is a joke, Usman will probably open -500 or -600

    Yep, Usman fighting Meek is fucking goonish. But totally expected with new mgt. But all of the top welterweights are tied up with other fights or injured as we speak so there’s that. Plus the Nightmare doesn’t like waiting around and wants to remain active. Ergo, the brass gave him another warm body to feast on.

    Re: his record/resume — it’s not just who he’s been beating but rather it’s HOW he’s been been beating them. Until Maia last night, Colby hadn’t beaten a big name either and was much less impressive IMO. Additionally, he actually got choked out by Warley Alves who Usman just tuned up In a one-sided drubbing from pillar to post recently..Then he went out and fucking dusted Sergio Moraes in the first frame while looking every bit of a part of a killer. So you can only beat who they put in front of you and right now he’s doing that without even losing rounds.

    But I think I’ll be coming at 10 versus the Nigerian would be a fucking born brother of a match and great title eliminator mu. In my opinion they should scrap the Meek. MU and give Covington and Usman the tilt now.

    At the end of the day though my goal is to make sure that nobody forgets the Nigerian Nightmare.

    There is footage of his uncle online the DNA has broke always in those veins. Lol

    LOL, I'm not usually a big fan of any fighters in particular but I am becoming a huge Colby Covington fan, best heel in MMA, hilarious stuff.

    The Brazilians are mad af too, Covington going to need police escort to the airport.

    I think he would use his wrestling more against Woodley.

    Nah, it's possible there are 5 fighters who could beat Woodley but that doesn't mean he isn't top 5. There's probably nobody at welterweight who beats everyone else but someone still has to be the champion. Wins over Lawler, Wonderboy and Maia and undefeated in over three years is a better record than anyone else.

    I'm TnT ie. explosive like dynamite baby. Listening to "Thunderstruck" to get amped like you wouldn't believe because I keep going & going & going like the Energizer bunny. I got AC-DC current running through my body shocking the bookies with electricity *Zap* This ain't Mortal Combat, but you can call me Raiden from now on!!

    So let's recap:

    -3 for 3 on my picks for team Barry.
    -Styles make fights
    -Name recognition is more often than not -EV
    -Pick your spots (too many plays = suicide)
    -Value is the only way to win in the long run
    -Crushing my plays something like 24-7 on UFC picks

    - Barry

    I knew something was up with him. He looked terrible, I thought he had a bad cut and/or gassed himself going for the early finish or injured something during the fight. That's how bad he looked. Hopefully his stock goes down a bit and we get him at a better price in the future when healthy.

    Why do you only win when you don't post your plays before hand?

    nothing compared to when bernard hopkins literally had to jump down a floor fleeing 1000 angry puerto ricans

    difference between chael and colby is sonnen was a natural as opposed to covington clearly being manufactured

    I just cannot get behind this at all. I think Woodley wins pretty handily against all of those guys, with RDA probably being the most difficult matchup. Woodley is honestly a nightmare matchup for Condit and Colby especially
