Old man strength and power of the butt chinHow is 40 year old Faber going to beat Ricky Simon? It's not like Simon is some foreign striker with limited wrestling who Faber could grind out or maybe submit. Simon is a more dynamic scrambler who could potentially out wrestle Faber and be an even more busy striker as well as pose a submission threat of his own. Faber hasn't fought in two and a half years while Simon is on an eight fight win streak and just beat a BJJ master in Rani Yahya, a large bantamweight striker in Montel Jackson and a great wrestler in Merab Dvalishvili in the UFC in a row. This is an awful matchup for Faber even if he looked as good as he did before he retired. -275 is a little steep, and I wish I bet it sooner, but it would be quite extraordinary if Faber could pull this off. I have to bet Simon even at this price.
Im going to have to start watching more tape again. Ive been lazy lately and its showing.Lost a bundle on Pingyuan, but at least my live bet hit at +250.
