    I might put down a $100 on Lewis and try my luck

    Seems about right. Not worse than a puncher's chance actually.

    So Gane by decision or Lewis by KO is the safest prediction at this point right?

    Sounds about right...Lewis - amazingly - seems to find a way to win a lot of fights though.

    Those odds do not really indicate no chance, but Lewis isn’t getting much respect. Especially for a HW fight.


    He’s probably going to lose though.

    Gane is a bad match up for Lewis. He is a more skilled striker. He doesn't take a lot of risks, and he doesn't make a lot of mistakes. I think Lewis is going to have a hard time finding openings.

    I expect Gane to win, but Lewis has that power that he's worth a bet. I threw a hundred on him in the off chance he lands a bomb

    If you're gonna put money on Lewis, might as well make it to win by knockout. Win even more, and it's the only way he wins.

    Odds were around the same for the Blaydes fight

    A classic puncher’s chance. That seems very fair to me.

    If you have a feeling and the funds. Put a bet down on Lewis, because he definitely has a “chance”. A better chance than most puncher’s chances, actually. 25 whole minutes worth of puncher’s chances. That’s a lot of time.

    Break a leg, metaphorically speaking, of course. It would be a great story.

    Odds are fair given the stylistic match up woukd seem to favor Gane. But betting on Lewis isn’t a bad bet with those odds. Lewis has significantly more experience in mma, has legit power he carries late into the fight, and has a penchant for finding a way to win.

    The 2 most likely. Followed by a late finish by Gane, imo.

    1. Gane by decision.
    2. Lewis by KO/TKO.
    3. Gane by KO/TKO.

    Yea it's really gane vs rozenstruik 2.

    Just depends if black beast is willing to take a risk because we all know gane won't.

    Gane is not 'chasing after it' tho in Rozenstruik fight, knowing that Rozenstruik have knockout power

    Although he is little more aggressive with Volkov

    To be fair, Blaydes was -380 when the two fought.

    It’s not even necessarily about taking a risk. It’s more a matter of can he land against a better all around fighter?
