I don't remember when I became a fan but I used to watch every single major MMA event available (including prelims if I could get them) since around the end of the Pride days. I lost interest with Dream/Senkogu, I had a problem with those and I thought Dream had some corruption, and the UFC became pretty watered down IMO so I slowly lost interest. But for a while now I've regained some interest and I've at least been watching highlights again of the big fights.
It's interesting to see the OG himself, Chael "The Undefeated" Sonnen has 750K followers and still hasn't lost a single round, and even Bisping has a podcast now. LOL, two new channels to subscribe to.
Adesanya is moving up from welterweight to light-heavyweight to take on the Polish hammer in a few weeks, also looking forwards to Darren Till vs The Italian nightmare Vetorri.
I've been into it a few years now and sure Chael is undisputed GOAT and Bisping's a great laugh too.
I'm not a betting man, but these odds are imho favoring Adesanya too much:
Adesanya is a -265 favorite (risk $265 to win $100), while Blachowicz is a +225 underdog (risk $100 to win $225) in the latest.
-265 favorite converts to implied odds of 72.6%
Which is equivalent of expectation that Adesanya should win (almost) 3 out of 4 of their fights.
I started believing in the Polish power after Yan defeated Reyes in the fashion he did.
I got Yan in this one but if Izzy can pull it off waw! Gonna be a barnburner!
Yan could easily compete in Heavy while Israel is thoroughly middle. What happens if Jan wins: he defeated someone half his size?
It's a weird fight. Dunno why either of them accepted. Well other than money
Seems like I am complaining, but not really. After Khabib went UFC ... YAAWN so sleepy.
Izzy has his eyes on heavy-weight belt too.
I can't get enough of UFC these days i even enjoyed the last bare-knuckle show. The more you follow it the more you get to know all the fighters, it's a great online-community too.
I'd love to see Dan back in the octagon. Dana make it happen!
