    What the fuck seriously? Iaquinta could have KO'd Clarke about 10 times in that time but what does he do? He risks it all to play around with a guy on the ground who's better at BJJ than him?? Clarke had no means whatsoever of ever getting that fight to the ground and Iaquinta is so much better on the feet. Since Iaquinta was my biggest bet of the night i'll end up 35 bucks on the minus even if the rest of my bets cash. Fk off Al with that horrid fight IQ.

    I love the backlash in here when a big favorite fucks up and loses.

    My Holdsworth/Iaquinta parlay went bye-bye but it was one of my smaller bets. Oh well.

    i agree with this, he was way too content sitting in his guard for round 1. floored him with the 1st punch he threw then just stayed their for the whole 1st round; although it sure looked like it was working well so who knows

    You have to give Shaun Shelby some credit here. All these matchmaking fights where the underdogs are winning.

    brush it off, guys. i lost $450 on it, too, it sucks. it absolutely sucks.

    i think that was like a 5-10% chance to happen. those happen sometimes.

    stay the course. no chasing.

    Seriously why grapple and risk it all when your opponent is a BJJ guy with poor wrestling and thus can't win unless you put him to the ground yourself. Al you fuckin Einstein you.

    Thankfully, I only did two parlays tonight, both busted. No more four or five parlays with favorite "locks" for me.

    Yea Al would have finished him quickly on the feet. Brutal fight IQ.

    I am fully on the Holdsworth bandwagon. Camus is getting subbed quick.

    Well Iaquinta lost twice in a row by submission just a few fights ago. This isn't that far out of the relm of possibility.
