If Benavidez fights like how he did against Pettis, very winnable fight for Borg.
My favorite bet on this card is Ashley Yoder at -140 vs Amanda Bobby Cooper. Yoder is much taller, more athletic imho, has a much better ground game, also did much better against Mackenzie Dern their common opponent. Cooper has a losing professional record and lost to any decent opponents with no notable wins on her record and has a susceptibility to submissions, while Yoder has multiple submissions on her record. Even on a three fight losing streak, to Mackenzie Dern, Angela Hill & Justine Kish, competitive decisions mind you, I think Yoder should be a clear favorite.
Borg out. What a year he's having
Dern fought yoder in her ufc debut in usa, and dern cut all the way to 115. Cooper fought dern in brazil, dern didnt cut weight, landed a big lucky punch. Cooper is much more athletic than Yoder. Yoder is more well rounded, better ground game. 50 50 fight in my eyes.
I don't know how you figure Cooper is much (!) more athletic than Yoder, but with a big size advantage, more well rounded and better ground game on Yoder's side, what else do you think Cooper has over Yoder to make up for those elements and make this a 50/50 toss up?
I do give the slight edge to yoder because of the ground edge which is massive in wmma. I just think the dern bouts can be misleading. I think Cooper is going to win the striking and yoders wrestling isn't that good. Just cautioning that its no sure thing.
Cooper has also been submitted 4 times in 7 pro fights via four different methods including once by armbar, while Yoder has 4 submission victories in 9 fights, all by armbar for what that is worth.
Ya i've been watching tape on this fight. I'm coming around on Yoder.
Good, I made a gigantic bet on Yoder, I need all the reassurance I can get, lol.
Cowboy looks old and weathered. Pretty much alluded to being injured still in interviews. Said he promises to stand and bang. Surely gonna get TKO'd
Crazy how he cruised past Lil Heathen despite what happened fight week
Sad but most likely true
Huge on GDR moneyline at -175 and -180. Pennington looked awful on the scale, took a beating last fight. She was suffering from thyroid issues, blew up in weight. This is in Denver at elevation. Also took GDR -3½ points at +125, under 2½ at +248 as well as GDR KO/TKO +365 and GDR round 2 at +850 & GDR round 3 at +1450.
I thought physically he looked good at weighins.
I wouldnt be surprised if she pulls out. That body language was horrible.
yeah he did actually look a lot better than thought he would
Oh, huge value, betonline has Korean Zombie by submission at +1000 while it's +360 elsewhere. This is a guy who submitted Dustin Poirier and has the only twister submission in UFC history.
KZ sub +1000 cancelled. Oh well.
