    You need to rewatch the fight with your blinders off. Anderson was landing nothing against Weidman, he landed a few leg kicks and that was all he could do. He tried for that front kick to the face and got denied, tried a knee and got denied, tried a crescent kick and was denied, tried throwing his hard straight punches and was also denied on all of them (none of them landed clean, Weidman was slipping them pretty easily). Weidman landed some hard GnP on him after taking him down immediately, then attempted two leg locks (which he won't do this time since they're low percentage moves and you lose top position). He then started decking Anderson with punches, hard ones. Weidman landed the first 2 punches before he even threw his finishing combination where his left hook ended it.

    The main thing though is that Anderson just wont be himself in striking as some people expect. As i said all you need to do is evaluate any similar example of a fight. People still think it will be AS that drops hands and laughs full of confidence doing matrix moves, nope. It will be a defensive AS

    He could have done so much more. He was just doing stupid, flashy stuff. He didn't throw any hard straight punches, he was just flicking them out there. I'd be concerned if Weidman didn't land any of the punches with Anderson just standing there totally flat footed. Jake Shields could have landed on him.

    Most people had him at that, even though I also realized the odds should have been closer to 3:1. But it seems bookies/people generally have huge favorites wrong, i.e. upsets happen more often than the implied chance suggests in those cases. The sample size isn't too big though, but the psychology of it makes sense.

    I think a coin toss is about right in this fight. We don't know what a fight with a "serious" Silva will look like, and even though Weidman won on the feet, he really didn't look all that good while doing it.

    Yea, just saw it. Kinda irrelevant though, expect for 'Sporting Bet' [Weidman +130, Anderson -175].
    I use 5dimes and I usually don't hedge, but I'll never regret hedging my 5 team parlay with Weidman. This way I was still able to make profit when Weidman won.

    Stupid post. GSP is on by far the safest fighting streak since his KO. It completely changed who he was as a fighter which is what the thread is about. Learn to read before calling a thread stupid.

    Haha, I totally agree. I heard Pinnacle is pretty solid too but I wouldn't know since Americans aren't allowed in.

    If there is a better offer you still bet there just because you think they are best?


    I am guessing its hard for a spastic with JoseAldoKiller nickname to understand concept of odd movements and psychology of the herd. It is sort of understandable that your mental resistance levels are getting drunk and writting shit on Sherdog
