usman-yakovlev better be on the main card.. watch it be some 'featured fight pass' fight..
Yhis is the weakest card of all time to
it's not that bad
sub par for FOX cards, maybe
Holm dec right, 4th/5th rd hedge, all in agreement say, I.
Yep, got unan too +190.
I was going play that but both the unanimous dec and dec were at the same price, +120, so I just played the dec.
Anyone else on V. bullet?
The striking between her and Holm is even in my books.
The grappling might actually be the deciding factor. Valentína has been grappling more and more. She has good trips. And is strong in the clinch.
The only thing I give Holly a clear advantage on is her size. It says their reach is the same but Hollys a few inches taller and probably will outweigh her by 10 pounds in the ring.
Holly has been a PED user and I will be taking a hard close look at her at the weigh ins.
Big value on VS. 1.5 u at +290.
I laid a small amount on her opening line (+350). Mostly a fade of Holm. I agree with all your points.
300 unitz on Shevchenko @ +300;
By no means am I laying the juice on holm, but I am struggling to see how VS navigates the size differential ... I also have not been impressed by her kickboxing game..
Size I agree with.
Have you watched her Muay Thai fights? Watch a few of those before dismissing her striking. I think she's been working on grappling in her UFC fights and hasn't shown her striking skills yet.
Home will out angle and out maneuver her all night. Their striking aren't compareable, Shenko is way too stationary and linear.
Does anyone see this not going Dec? VS sub possibly?
haven't, no, just her mma
super doubtful shev sub imo. just looked, pays +1300
decision is probable
If you want to see her striking skills -- watch some of her Muay Thai fight. There's a reason she's a 16 time world champion.
is it even relevant at this point? doesn't seem to have translated into mma
I think it is because this fight will primarily be striking.
I also think she's been consciously using more grappling in her MMA fights to work on it as we saw in the Kaufman and Nunes (R3) fight.
If you haven't seen what she can do striking wise, you're missing a key piece of capping IMO.
Muay Thai fights is fought way way differently than MMA striking fights are fought, and especially against a striker such as Holm. Different angles, different ranges, different everything. There won't be any thai clinching, knee striking, body clinch tripping business here.
