The plays went 5-4, but I lost -6.75 units, thanks to losing my big play which included Volkmann and Barboza.  However, I am feeling a bit more confident, as most of the fights did play out as I expected. 

The biggest difference for me this year seems to be my inability to win my big bets.  I do not think I have won a single 10 unit wager since the UFC returned from their March Madness hiatus. 

I really should have hammered one or more of Struve, Brown, or Hardy, as I was the most confident on these plays, rather than trying to "play it safe" by hammering a high favourite parlay.

Here is the recap:

1.  Parlay of Dos Santos , Volkmann  and Barboza

2.  Stefan Struve

3.  Mike Brown

4.  Parlay of Roy Nelson , Velasquez and Brandao   Who would have thought that a Team Jackson fighter would have such poor cardio!!! 

5.  Dan Hardy

6.  CB Dollaway

7.  Dollaway - Miller over 2.5 rounds

8.  Chase parlay of Dos Santos , Velasquez , Barboza  and Brandao

9.  Shane Del Rosario

Happy to help, with MMA! 

...but the Celtics, that must have come from someone else.  I don't think I have posted an NBA play in years!!!

I should have never played that "chase parlay".  Who would have thought Jamie Varner would pull a Tito vs Bader on us?

...and Brandao's cardio!!!  OMG WTF!?! 

That Dollaway - Miller fight was even more uglier than I was expecting.  Dollaway's chin is almost at the washed up Arlovski/Liddel phase!!!

Despite cashing that bet, I don't think I am ever going to wager on Dollaway again...

Winslow, Mazzagatti, Yves Lavigne, Mark Matheney and Mario Yamasaki's brother are definitely top ballot hall of famers for worst referees of all time!!!

I feel your pain. decent fight winners picked/leaned. poor bets. loadin up on the wrong guy.

 Very entertaining card - loved all the finishes. Have a good week. Another card in a few days, which is nice

I'm sure you heard about barao at -160. If I'm not mistaken we both may have figured Faber to b the fav. I'm a little surprused

I am not really looking forward to Friday's card.  With TUF being live this year, it is going to be really hard to cap IMO.  With past shows, there is normally a few months between when the show wrapped up and when the finale took place, so we could learn a little bit more about where the guys had trained to shore up on their deficiencies from the show.  We won't have that advantage this time around.  Basically, what we have seen (or not seen in my case) is what we are likely going to get with these fighters...

I am a little surprised by the Barao - Faber line.  I would assume that it is a 5 round fight since it is for a title.  We have seen Faber in plenty of 5 round fights.  I wonder if Barao will gas if he cannot get an early finish...

i'm sure it didn't dent the books nothing does but for example the year Efrain won TUF, everyone here knew he was gonna be in the finals right in the middle of the show, so for people that could get him at +500 or so at the time, they were getting him +500 against Nover, wow looking back not much came out of that year
