    What are some of the fights you totally were sure about that didn't go down like you thought. Doesn't have to be championship fights. I've gotten MM wrong 2 times. I thought McCall 2nd fight and Dobson would beat him.

    When I pick, I pick every fight on the card and I'm at ~55 - 60%

    If I only had to pick the main event I would probably be in the 70-80% range.

    If somebody put a mic in front of my face for that one I would have said "no comment". I did think that was too tough of a fight to offer Dom after being out for 3 years, but went back and forth on who I thought would win.

    I still pick against my better judgement.
    Example: I won't pick against Hunt or Shogun.

    Hunt vs. Stampede of Rogue Elephants: Hunt Rd 1 KO.

    This is the first time I've favored Jones in his last 3 fights, in which I really thought Gus would beat him in their fight and wasn't sure if he would be back to himself in the Glover fight, but he proved me wrong and looked at his best, but did think there was that possibility. This fight I can't figure out at all but do favor Jones. So if my record keeps going, he'll lose.

    Well thats a for sure round 1 ko for hunt

    my heart made me pick shogun over bones...

    Me and my friends knew shogun had no chance.....But i still rooted for him and they laughed cause they knew...

    it was so bad i was saying "flying knee in the first 10 sec".....i was so butt hurt before that fight, and after i was prescribed Preparation H and a water bottle for my tears

    I really can't get into the mind of people who can't predict against their favourite.

    2014 was a bad year for me and the UFC both. I lost money on the following fights:

    -Phil Davis vs Anthony Johnson (smallest financial loss but most bitter memory, skipped watching the fights to go to a dance with my g/f and got dumped that night lol)

    -Johnny Eduardo vs Eddie Wineland (this one cost me big)

    -Will Brooks vs Michael Chandler I

    -Mitch Clarke vs Al Iaquinta

    -TJ Dillashaw vs Renan Barao (had a big parlay on this one and the Iaquinta fight)

    -Mike Wilkinson vs Niklas Backstrom (another big loss)
