    You need punching power and a good overhand to KO Vick, all Felder has is knees and elbows which he should never come close to a 6ft 3in guy like Vick with.

    Munhoz 21% td accuracy, Dodson 30% and Faber was on the downslide. If memory serves me right at that point he was struggling to take down Francisco Rivera and Alex Caceres.

    Yea, totally agree with this point and I said the same thing in a Discord earlier today. People are blowing that 100% TDD figure out of proportion. I do think Rivera’s line is accurate now, but the +170 Aljo line a week or so ago was close to if not on the EV side imo.

    If you read what i said i said i dont think Aljo gets takedowns. My point is lets not act like Rivera cannot be taken down when hes never fought a decent wrestler.

    The Weight cut is the reason why he lost to Gaethje. He looked quite bad when he was fighting Gaethje. There was a reason i went with Gaethje, vick looked like crap on the Octagon.

    Lets hope it doesn't happen again. If Vick was on weight on FF135 he would probably won a decent decision win.

    Watched a couple fights each of Albu and Whitmire. Whitmire looks like she has some decent skills and a good idea of what she wants to do in the cage. As has been noted in this thread, Albu is pretty much pure physicality. The strength difference is going to be huge, but if Whitmire can keep from getting run over in the first, I think she'll have a good chance of getting a decision in this one.

    I watched a 2015 fight of Albu's, and her latest, and I don't see any improvement. Actually looked better in the older fight, although it's hard to tell as she was up against canon fodder. Whitmire has shown improvement. I put 2u Whitmire at +150, and probably will hedge that with 1u on Albu wins in the first, if the odds look decent.

    Fair enough.

    You think Aljo can win a striking battle if they stay standing?

    I won a few units on that fight with being big on Justin and I'd happily do the same in a rematch. Weight cut helped but I think Justin would beat Vick regardless. I went over it at length at the time of the fight but he's just a bad match up for Vick, still can't believe I got him at + odds.

    I'm undecided for this one, certainly think Felder can get a win here. I'll likely looked to play the overs, underdog if either drift and maybe a decision prop if there's anything juicy.

    Jury sometimes comes to my gym to train and saw him rolling a couple months ago and looked sharp on the ground. I sprinkled a few units on him

    That's a pretty big assumption. If that happens it's pretty much saying it will go in Cains favour. And this fight is 50/50 in my opinion.

    Hey, Ngannou vs Lewis went 5 rounds without going in anybody's favor!

    Think it was some meme akin to 'That wasn't the real me in there'.

    Spot on. He has his mojo back now. Good footwork and in no rush to land the Ko. The Blaydes rematch was scary
