Betting Results For TUF Nations – 14.50 Units Lost

[adrotate group=”25″]Olivier Aubin-Mercier and Sheldon Westcott failed to show up in shape and that caused us to make a loss of 14.50 units on this event.

This was an extremely frustrating event to watch. I was forecasting a big profit from our bets but Aubin-Mercier and Westcott gassed badly in the first round and that cost us.

I’m not trying to make excuses for the loss. But if you can’t fight in the Octagon for 15 minutes without gassing, you shouldn’t be in the UFC. There’s no way we could have accounted for their lack of cardio and I feel very let down with their performances.

Had either of them won, we would’ve turned a profit for the night.

It was very a very frustrating event. Sorry guys. We’re confident we can make it up to you by turning a strong profit at this weekend’s UFC on Fox 11 card.

Here’s how each of our betting tips played out…

LESLIE SMITH vs SARAH KAUFMAN

OUR BET: 10.00 Units on the fight to go over 2.5 rounds at odds of 1.47 | -212 | 47/100
OUR PROFIT / LOSS: 4.70 Units Profit

This fight played out exactly how we said it would. Both girls stood toe to toe and punched each other in the face for 15 minutes.

Sarah Kaufman looked great in this fight. Maybe she should fight the winner of the Miesha Tate vs Liz Carmouche match up at UFC on Fox 11?

KJ NOONS vs SAM STOUT

OUR BET: 10.00 Units on the fight to go over 2.5 rounds at odds of 1.55 | -181 | 11/20
OUR PROFIT / LOSS: 10.00 Units Lost

We bet on this fight going over 2.5 rounds because…

– Both these guys are strikers.
– KJ Noons hasn’t been knocked out for 7 years.
– Sam Stout hasn’t been knocked out for 11 years.
– 9 out of KJ Noon’s last 10 fights have gone to a decision.
– 14 out of Sam Stout’s last 16 fights have gone to a decision.
– KJ Noons hasn’t knocked anyone out in the last 4 years.
– Sam Stout hasn’t knocked anyone out in the last 3 years.

Despite all these factors indicating that this fight would go to a decision, KJ Noons blasted Sam Stout with a big punch and knocked him out in 30 seconds.

The outcome of this fight was surprising to say the least…

I definitely feel like we made a good bet here, we just got unlucky. I’d place the same bet in the same situation with the same information 100 times over!

AKIRA CORASSANI vs DUSTIN POIRIER

OUR FIRST BET: 5.00 Units on Dustin Poirier to win by knock out or TKO at odds of 2.10 | +110 | 11/10
OUR SECOND BET: 2.00 Units on Dustin Poirier to win by submission at odds of 10.00 | +900 | 9/1
OUR FIRST BET: 10.00 Units on this fight not to go the distance at odds of 1.73 | -137 | 73/100
OUR PROFIT / LOSS: 10.80 Units Profit

This fight was vintage Dustin Poirier. He went out and fought his ass off until he earned the win.

He pushed the pace of the fight from the opening second and broke Corassani’s spirit at the end of the first round. Poirier then went onto finish Corassani with strikes at the beginning of the second round.

This was a great performance from a future UFC Champion. Poirier looked great…

CHAD LAPRISE vs OLIVIER AUBIN-MERCIER

OUR FIRST BET: 10.00 Units on Olivier Aubin-Mercier at odds of 2.10 | +110 | 11/10
OUR PROFIT / LOSS: 10.00 Units lost

Olivier Aubin-Mercier started this fight strong and looked really good right up until Chad Laprise stuffed his first take down. From there Olivier gassed pretty fast and he couldn’t match Laprise’s pace after the first round.

This was a tough fight to watch if you had money on Olivier, because there is no doubting that he could’ve won this fight. His problem was his lack of cardio and his lack of a Plan B.

It was a very disappointing performance from Olivier because he had all the tools necessary to win this fight.

ELIAS THEODOROU vs SHELDON WESTCOTT

OUR BET: 10.00 Units on Sheldon Westcott to win at odds of 2.30 | +130 | 13/10
OUR PROFIT / LOSS: 10.00 Units lost

I’m so pissed off with Sheldon Westcott. He doesn’t deserve a place in the UFC and he should be cut immediately.

Westcott gassed out within 2 minutes of the 1st round and looked terrible in this fight.

This was the biggest fight of his life and he showed up out of shape. There’s just no excuse for it. He should be disgusted with himself.

I don’t even know if this was a bad betting pick, because Sheldon Westcott didn’t show up and fight anywhere near his full potential.

I know guys that smoke 20 cigarettes a day that could’ve lasted longer than him.

He should be ashamed of himself…
