    What was the biggest upset you predicted and you shocked all your friends? And if you remember the approximate odds on the fight. For me I would have to say Bigfoot whooping Overeem. The odds were close to 4-1 in favor of Overeem. I always felt Overeem was overrated and put $50 on it and won just under $200. Another notable upset was Randy over big Tim but that was somewhere around 2-1 in favor of Timmy. Those are a couple of mine. What about you?

    Shogun over Machida in the first fight but got screwed.

    Not that it was that huge but I felt pretty confident Seth Petruzelli was going to give Kimbo his first loss. Didn't think it would be by KO though.

    Won money on condit vs Diaz, kampmann vs ellenberger, Sanchez vs kampman and the biggest IMO weidman vs silva 1. Some dude on sherdog bet like 40 k on Weidman winning and he was paid off big time!!!

    Unfortunately it was Werdum > Fedor. Had a feeling about the early sub. Not awesome.

    Jonny Jones vs the champ Chogun Rua.

    I predicted Jones would smash Mauricio to pieces.

    Weidman Silva? I have to admit I thought Silva would smash Weidman. When I saw that live I almost choked on my drink. I was in utter disbelief

    I actually put money of Belfort over Jones by a flash finish. When he locked on that arm bar I almost had an aneurysm, but when Jones got out I knew my money was lost.

    He wasn't even a 3 to 1 dog.

    As for as a straight up pick I can't really remember but I put down 100$ on Sonnen to submit Shogun at 15 to 1.

    Remember he posted the bet slips from all casinos in Vegas he laid cash on Chris at? 40 k might be a little high but thousands of dollars were wagered and won.
