UFC 189 Betting - Jose Aldo vs Conor McGregor
I survived the partying of a century. I ALMOST thought I was getting too old for this shit. Almost 😉
Hugo, you're trippin'... that is all, no Irish Whiskey for you ;). I do think Conor had some kind of health issue though..something was not right.
I did see some friendly rivalry between Irish and Brazilians but it was all in good fun.
The Rory/Lawler fight was fucking insane.. I actually thought Robbie's speech was perfect; that's just how he plays it. Rory cannot beat him. The end of that round was close, but that's the best you'll see from Rory in that match up.
JESSE and Allsop...hell yeah I was stoked when Pendred lost.. and even the Irish dudes behind me thought his striking looked like ASS and was in perpetual slow-motion. I was LIVID when he actually won a judge?? He did exactly fuck-all .. that had to be a joke lol.
Stephens was a great bet too WOW thx man
Cloud... Great job man.. Conor brought it home for us as expected... He was "stabbing him in the gas tank" with those body shots..I do think that had a lot to do with it...great game plan... was so great
Cheers to you all
P.S... Pendred is a douche bag and proves that they aren't only made in America.
Dana White re: Pendred fight
The only thing worse than that fight was the score!!! Split decision????

I gotta hand it to connor though, when i listen to him speak , like at the post fight press conference, dude is so smart, its like watching the reincarnation of bruce lee
The Swede bet against the Icelander interesting.
@DivMuzza Yeah for sure I don´t care about nationalities when handicapping fights, at least not in the way that I would favor someone because they are from the same country as me or close to it. I like Gunnar a lot, I just have not been impressed with his stand up game or his take downs in comparison to Thatch. Getting Thatch down the way he did, didn´t see that coming, my bad…
I had a small loosing night with Cody ITD & Rory being the worst losses. Thatch was close to break even as I bet on the fight to not go the distance big as well.
I saved myself with Stevens by KO +400 and the best one is I tailed McGregor himself on the win in RD2 for +550. If he was prepared to bet Dana 3,5M usd then I feel I can put 1/2 a unit on it :yahoo:
It´s a grind, on to the next one, we will get back on track soon.. #hardworkpaysoff #TGIF (TheGrindIncludesFridays)
Smart way to to bet. I still can't bet against my heart sometimes which is my I never took the Means tip. Luckily paid off for me this time.
Yeah never would have saw Neslon drop Thatch with punches, if Nelson can improve his stand up he could be a real contender especially when he always has the option to drop to lightweight.
As for the Aldo fight I think he was right to pull out if he is injured. We seen Conor slow Mendes with kicks to the body and Aldo made injuries fair game when he fought KZ. I think his days are numbered at the top. He doesnt have the stopping power that Mendes has and Mendes couldn't hurt McGregor, Aldo throws less kicks every fight and his gas tank is not the best. If McGregor doesn't get him I think Edgar will.
after last night i take back what i said about edgar loosing to chad, edgars taken some damage but he could take connor down at will for 5 rounds and cub swanson him if connor doesnt get him on the feet
@chuck good to hear you survived the night bro. Must have been a hell of a party. Looking forward to the title defence against aldo in ireland. I will def be there!
@hugo mcgregor landed 2x more strikes than mendes both rounds. http://www.fightmetric.com:8081/events/fight-info/5354/
Most judges would give conor the first round based on that and forward pressure.
What I learned was that his takedown is pretty good for the style that he fights. It will only get better from here on out. He also has a good guard with elbows and punches from the bottom. Conor won a lot of fans after this fight and aldo lost a lot.
I just dont see a possibly off juice and mentally weak Aldo beat conor.
Watch the fight again. Mendes did not gas. Mendes got destroyed with body shots.

Built up to be a champ and gets his face plastered by the old school champ for $60k.
I got 50+ units net with Conor tho,so who gives a shit!
Now to resist going on tilt with random high risk bets 😉
50 UNITS !!! fuck yeh ! what is a unit for you chuck ? :yahoo:
I've been following Allsops tips for over 10 months and I started out with over $10k in bitcoin. Not sure how much I paid in total for it, but way less than $10k as I got in early.. I think like $2500
Followed the tips, but also made some good and bad bets of my own.
Good bets including Robbie Lawler for the belt and Rory by finish vs Saffidine when I was drunk and chasing, and my man Ross Pearson
Bad bets on chick fights and on fucking Jamie Varners leg, and Bobby Green despite Yads clear warnings.
It's all been building up to me putting it all on McGregor, which got me .65 on nearly the whole roll
The bitcoin betting lines aren't great, but it's anonymous and there was actually a casino in Vegas that let me convert a shit ton to cash for a hefty fee
I've been milking the bitcoin out of exchanges too steady for cash so it's hard to tell but I think my unit would have been up to like $250 before McG. As it were, he made me like $7800
I plan to buy a Ford Fusion titanium Energi thanks to McGregor and I still have room to play.. $30 or so per unit
Money on MMA indeed.
the man Chuck!
I fucken love this site.
Allsop, you have done well my friend! Hard to find a good tipster site
aldo mcgregor will probably happen in january
I cant beleive Aldo is the betting underdog now. How can the nr1 pound for pound fighter be the underdog? I was hoping for better odds to bet on connor.
