Am i a fish for loving this Barboza line at -129?
I assume the line is so close because GJ is getting the vick KO rub but also because Barboza has never done well going backwards (EG - MJ Fight ).
I dont think GJ can pull off the same game plan as MJ. He is just not fast enough.
Disclaimer - I am always on the wrong side of the Edson Line.
I made money with Edson last time and he's very difficult to beat without a wrestling advantage and takedown game plan, not just pressure striking like Gaethje has, so I'm on him as a small favorite too at -125.
Gaethje said he's not looking to go for tds but would be dumb to not think about it. Fwiw.
Interesting statements from gaethje in this interview (from April 2018)

.@Justin_Gaethje says "something" stopped him from going for takedowns/wrestling in the fight even when it would be advantageous. #TheMMAHour https://t.co/ZdWo3jvvbs
UFC Philadelphia official weigh-in live, started at 9 am ET:
I like Barboza/Gaethje Over 1½ at -169 and Branch/Hermansson Under 2½ at -124.
Rayborg looks real different than last time out. Anyone know anything about Casey ?
He's very good
Also fwiw, he was at 125 in that video so should be more cut at a lower weight but conversely he hasn’t fought for a significant amount of time so it’s feasible to expect him to put on more muscle during that time so he can cut down to 135 which doesn’t seem to have happened.
Ariel's preview show live now:
Casey hits, nice start to the card.
I was pleasantly surprised that Kenney got that one.
Didnt Watch it, Sherdog had it split. So looks like a close one.
I think pearson is shot but he looked decent at weighins and @ +450 is too tempting. 1u Pearson +450.
damn, thought barzola would get a couple of tds.
Barb is -115 now...... If i knew for sure this movement was because of the vick rub id love to add more but cant help to think im missing an angle with this line movement.
People just like Gaethje's style.
