    Who have you guys got in this match-up and how?

    I'll be attending UFC 155 and putting down a good amount of money on a parlay with Junior, Boetsch, Belcher. I want to include this fight in my parlay, but it seems risky to me for some reason.

    J-Lau never goes the distance while Miller goes the distance fairly regularly - should i factor that into my decision? Stylistically I think it's a good match-up for Jim, but I'm not 100% confident.

    Thoughts?

    seems like you are answering your own question, leave it out of the parlay?

    I want J-Lau, but I'd bet on Miller. This could be a replay of the Miller-Tibau fight


    he asking for other people's opinions as well

    unless he adds a lot of bank to your parlay, leave any lauzon fight out of things...

    seriously? who the fuck knows with this guy...he's perfectly capable of shitrocking and subbing bendo if given the chance or he could get blasted in the first round...it's hard telling with ol' lauzon

    however he will always be one of my favorite fighters because of his killer instinct and his heart...his fight with varner was fucking amazing

    I think your parlay will already be shot with Boetsch and probably Belcher, regardless of Miller/Lauzon.

    However, I'm picking Miller, hoping for Lauzon, and think that Lauzon edging close to +200 is hard to pass up. I wouldn't do it in a parlay as my only bet of the night, though.

    Your parlay was dead the second you included Boetsch

    Why is everyone hating on Boetsch? Did you pick him to beat Okami and Lombard?

    Lauzon. Joe has improved immensely since the loss to G. Sot. He's gone 3-1 since that fight, and after watching his last fight against Varner, it looks like his cardio isn't an issue anymore like it used to be.

    If you compare their recent fights against Guillard, they're two different performances. Miller was in trouble and almost got finished, while Lauzon never seemed like he was in any real danger.

    I don't think Joe finishes him, but he'll outwork him to a UD.

    I think Miller grinds it out, great fight though.

    Because Okami absolutely outclassed Boetsch for two rounds. Boetsch's win in the third was legit, but was also a fluke and he would be quite an underdog to Okami if they fought again.

    Boetsch won an extremely close decision against Lombard, who perplexed everyone by being uncharacteristally tentative and barely engaging. Lombard was debuting in the UFC, was possibly injured, and many people still scored the fight in his favor.

    Horrible fight to bet on a winner.
    You might get a good look at a line on this fight not going the distance. If there is value there, let that be your bet on this fight.
