Added. Welcome!

I've not slept much last few nights and have also am having a few so I hope I don't pass out. If I suddenly go silent you guys are most likely on your own, but I'm really going to try to go the distance.

Faber is going to get his ass kicked. I like Urijah, but he is no match for this guy

Aldo will crush his opponent. These Brazilians are really good fighters.

Thought Varner had it. He is former WEC LW champ. Oh well, at least it didn't go to decision like all the rest so far.

Good fight.

Classic grappler vs striker match up. Advantage grappler.

I would not know how to wager on FR. But let me ask you, what do you see in Faber over Barao? This guy is as good as Aldo in his weight class. Faber is good, but he lack skill in Mui Tai. Faber is good on the ground. Faber is not near as good as Barao in striking. Faber is OK in submission, mostly due to his strength and endurance, but still not as good as Barao. I do not see any weakness in Barao.

Truth be told I just really like Faber. Almost every time he fights I see something I've never seen before.

As far as wagers, your word is your bond. If you agree to terms just say so and bet is on.

OK. I will wager a heartfelt mea culpa if Faber wins. You do likewise if my man wins.

I do agree with you when Faber was in the WEC , he was the man. But this is the ultimate fighting organization. Faber, to be sure is great athlete and apparently works hard. But he has been beaten by Brown, crushed by Aldo, even beaten by the previous holder of the 135 lb division. (can't remember his name). And Barao is better than all of those guys.

You are correct, but more lamentation would be nice on your part. My greatness is not in question. Your self-deprecation and sack-cloth and ashes is what we need to hear.

I am just teasing you. Faber’s day, like Mir’s has passed. These young guns are just better trained….and youth is a great equalizer.

I’m curious to know if a person could make money by always betting on the favorites or if there are enough upsets to make it actually risky. Joe what’s-his-name seems to be a good matchmaker in most cases.

Very possible. Lots of people make lots of cash. Many upsets making big profits possible.
