MadLab’s UFC 246 Breakdown and Predictions!!! Here is what Twitter is saying…
UFC 246 MAIN CARD
Donald Cerrone $6800 vs. Conor McGregor $9400
You often wonder how a man will handle defeat, coming back from injuries, and in this case, coming off a long lay-off in which has spiraled into a mentally taxing and image tarnishing one. When you are a mid-tier combatant who is expected to do as good as you are labeled, the pressure to keep your spot on the roster may be the hardest pressure you have. Not saying that’s not a lot of pressure, but in the grand scheme of it all, if you’re good enough, there shouldn’t be a problem. However, Conor faces a career-changing one. This can go so far north to solidify his spot as one of the most decorated and dominant fighters of our time, or it can go completely south and tarnish a legacy as well as stir the swirling questions of “Was he really as good as advertised?”
You see, there is really no middle ground here in this fight. He either wins in spectacular fashion and the money train gets oiled and fired up again, or he has a lackluster performance and maybe even gets caught in the process. All the pressure is on Conor here, and to be quite honest, I’m not sure what to expect from him. There is something to be said about the competitive nature of a human that allows them to believe they are still the man or woman they were 5-6 years ago. You really don’t know until your in the speed of the fight. Sparring is a completely different animal than going real time, and I am expecting to see a little cage rust. It’s normal.
However, how much and for how long you can never be too certain. There are a lot of factors involved. Fighting is all about adjusting, and even tho Cerrone is a guy who can be tailor-made in the perfect world for someone like Conor, he does have enough experience to throw different looks at him in which can throw his ability to really get comfortable into a pocket. The fight will also be at 170, and there are many variations involved far beyond just the weight. You have to wonder who it hurts and helps more here because it can be a blessing and a curse for both men.
On McGregor’s end, a 170 bump could help him in the crisp power department, but his speed and accuracy may lack a bit. Also, you have to be a bit concerned about how his cardio will fare, given he has been very inactive in live time. He had 2 fights at 170 and is split 1-1. There are a lot of rumors swirling that he is looking better than he has ever before. Well, that’s all great and good, but keep in mind, selling the fight is the main objective here. We really have no idea what he is going to look like once the curtains draw and the first exchange is thrown. However, you can only imagine mentally I’m sure he believes he’s ready.
On Cowboy’s corner, what can you really say? The guy is a free-floating fighter who lives on the edge, both inside and outside the cage. From crazy hobbies to accepting fights on last minutes notice, the guy is always up for a challenge. Cowboy’s career wasn’t always this free-flowing and easy. Early on in his career, he needed to seek counseling for his uncontrollable nature with adrenaline dumps due to nerves. Since then, he has become a very different man mentally, however, your body has other things to say as you get older. He has shown flashes of greatness as well as flashes of age and deterioration. In our own minds, we know Cowboy has the skill, experience and the tools to beat McGregor, but how can he achieve this if his body doesn’t follow suit. The weight cut, which will not be an issue here, can only help him, but in his outside the cage lifestyle, you wonder if he is luxury training or completely dialed in.
This is a fight where he really doesn’t have all that much to lose, yet so much to gain. His legacy is written for him with all his accolades and records, but a win against McGregor will solidify him as something much more special. Something Cowboy will be ready for is a scrap. It seems that McGregor has his eye on some very big things outside of fighting. One is to become a billionaire by the time he reaches the age of 35. There is nothing wrong with that at all, but it makes you wonder where his motives are. In the fight game, you fight for prize money which is obvious, but you need a desire to be there as well. He knows fighting is a clear path for him to reach his financial goals but is he the hungry McGregorwe once knew? Not too certain about this.
This is a fight with many question marks looming around it, however, it is a fight Conor really should win. We have seen Cowboy backed up in fights on the feet, and you can actually see in his face that he feels he’s in trouble. Conor brings that style and speed in which would without a doubt make Cowboy back up. Am I certain it happens? No. I haven’t seen him active in quite some time so there can be a bit of caution in his step. With that said, it’s really what you want to buy into in the most important aspect of it all. Do you buy into the sincerity that Conor is a changed man? The drinking, the partying, and the apparent lackluster camps. I will sit here and say that he seems to be pretty sincere in his approach, but to be quite honest, he has no reason to trash talk Cerrone so he may just be taking the fight as it comes. This fight kind of sells itself. McGregor is the type of guy who is extremely calculated in his preflight approaches, and everybody loves Cowboy. So there isn’t much animosity here to be sold.
With that said, there are crucial elements to this fight that concern me on both ends. Conor is walking about around 8 pounds under the 170 limit without any weight cutting attempt. A weight class where Cerrone has been calling home ever since he felt brittle at 155. Keep in mind, McGregor is a natural 145er. So the size difference should show itself clearly along with a pretty large height differential Cowboy will own by about 4 inches. The weight can all play a role and impact Conor negatively or positively, but that all really depends on where in the fight they are. On the front end of the fight where Conor will be sharp, fast and strong, he will most likely look to find his boxing range early. But if he doesn’t and Cowboy can play the right game, the cardio can start to make him a bit sloppy where Cerrone has many veteran tricks in his bag that can help build his confidence further as the fight goes on. A confident Cerrone is a dangerous one. Cerrone needs to start hot out of the Gate. He should be looking to utilize his kicking game to keep Conor honest and create that space just clear enough for McGregor to feel like he’s reaching and make him fear the head kick. That coupled with bluffing with a few takedown attempts will trigger Conor to bounce in and out of the pocket with a little bit more caution and thought. However, we all know the scripture on Cerrone. He mentally is his own worst enemy.
Outside of all his accolades, he has been also vocally worked by fans and the media for never being able to reel in that big stage fight when the lights are bright. He seems to lose the fight mentally before the fight ensues, and that’s why owning the first round or two is crucial to how this fight plays out. His chin is a very big issue for me, and Cerrone doesn’t have a very good poker face when he is hurt or feels like he’s trouble. He shows clear indications that his frustration is mounting when he starts to back peddle and his facial expressions speak volumes. So it’s imperative for DC to come sharp and fast never letting Conor catch his stroke. With that said, this is all easier said than done. A fight that in the perfect world is tailored for Conor, and Cerrone having some chin issues down the stretch of his career is probably the scariest element here. I will be rooting for Cowboy and I hope he wins, but the smart decision is on Conor here. I will tell you this. I wouldn’t bet Conor at these odds unless there was a really good prop that made sense. This is by no means a fight where I will lay that wood on a fight that is much much more dangerous than many of you think. I’ll take Conor for the win, but you have been warned if you decide to lay those odds on Conor.
The Pick: Conor
Holly Holm $8900 vs. Raquel Pennington $7300
Not a fight that I would say is co-main event worthy. Holm is still a freak athlete and her KOing Rhonda will always be stapled to her star. Great boxing, solid kicking game, very long and athletic and so very durable is what really makes her special in her own way. The preacher’s daughter does have ways you can beat and bully her but many women just aren’t willing to get dirty taking the chances of getting their wings clipped in the process. Pennington fits the mold when it comes to being a party crasher in the pocket. She is not afraid to jump into a Fox hole and make you work for every minute. Dropping 2 straight to Nunes and GDR, Pennington bounced back with a big win over Irene Aldana, another long and rangy fighter that posses a less athletic but similar approach to Holm. So the ability to win a fight like this is in fact there for Pennington, but Holm is just too polished on the feet for her. Her athletic ability will keep her safe, keep her nimble, and keep her guessing. I think holm wins this one at range giving rocky fits trying to find her way into the pocket. I have to go Holm here.
The Pick: Holm
Aleksei Oleinik $7800 vs. Maurice Greene $8400
This fight’s really all on Greene here. We know what Greene can do and we know what he is very very pedestrian in. We also know what Oleinik can do and what he is extremely pedestrian in and that is striking. As dangerous as he is on the ground and quite honestly there aren’t many people more dangerous than him there. His striking is so bad that getting into range on a longer man that can strike is a clear issue. As much as I really want to pick Oleinik here I just have an issue with picking him in spots where a man has a clear reach and striking advantage against him. It just seems he’s getting to an age now where he can really just be hurt unless he opens up early where he can take this to his world. Outside of that, it’s been very difficult to watch such a respected fighter get clipped on his feet so much partially because his body is just so torn down that he can’t really move fluently striking at all anymore, not that he ever needed to be with 45 submissions in 57 fights. With his credentials, if he wasn’t 42 years of age and broken down a bit, I wouldn’t even bat an eyelash here. So yes this fight scares me for him but also yes I’m taking a flyer here and picking him to win. The guys he lost to as of late were far better fighters than Maurice Greene, and if Greene thinks that his mediocre grappling ability will have any effect on his older counterpart, then he is mistaken. When you’re getting the aging yet much more experienced submission ace at a discount dog price, it’s hard not to call for a very real upset. One I’m not banking on him to do but one that is very real and possible. He’s live.
The Pick: Oleinik
Claudia Gadelha $8300 vs. Alexa Grasso $7900
Claudia is one of those fighters that has loads of potential and she has shown it numerous times, but sometimes she really plays the Jekyll and Hyde role where it looks like she just never shows up. Great athlete, powerful, and never afraid to get physical, she has all the markings for elite level status. She has been there, she has fought the best, but it seems as if when the fight starts dragging its way to later rounds she tends to start falling off the ledge. Backing up, losing steam and just fighting unhinged. Everything else is there from big-time fights, star-studded resume in her division and some big wins. She takes on a woman that is still trying to make her mark in the division and this would be a huge feather in her cap if she did win. There is something about Grasso that just doesn’t appeal to me. I feel like she’s missing something and I am not quite sure I’m able to pinpoint it yet. It seems like she has one gear. Bringing the tempo and pace up or down is something that she can’t gauge or she hasn’t been able to get due to her age. In any event, she just really never did anything for me. Good striking, not afraid to engage in the pocket and will trade with you anywhere. All good attributes. However, her Achilles heel is her grappling and if she gets caught up in Claudia’s aggressive grappling or takedowns then it’s going to be a major issue for her. Even if she keeps this upright, I just think Claudia is too polished and too well versed in this one where eventually the going Grasso may not break fully, but see the fight slipping out of her hands. The way Grasso responds after round one will be a telltale sign. I’m expecting Claudia to bring heat quick and look for her hips. If she gets her down, it may stay there for a while and how Grasso responds when she either gets back to her feet or the round begins. Her biggest saving grace would be to keep this standing, drag it out, and hope Claudia’s has tank starts to dwindle. However, in a fight Claudia needs I don’t think she allows this girl to make a name off her.
The Pick: Gadelha
Anthony Pettis $7200 vs. Diego Ferreira $9000
If this fight was about 5 years ago, then this would probably be main event worthy. This is a really really good fight, but as the old saying goes, “Time stops for no one.” Pettis, despite his numerical age, has been around these woods for quite some time. At 32 years of age, he has been wrapping his hands and slinging leather for 13 years. Pettis is known for bringing that matrix language into the game and best known for his mind-bending running the cage kick in which sent Ben Henderson into orbit for a brief moment until he kicked off the dust. It was an instant highlight reel and a star would be born. Known as “showtime,” Pettis made his way to UFC Gold along with a Wheaties box. After a nice 5 fight win streak in the UFC, Pettis began declining at a rapid pace. Losing 3 straight followed by a rotating door of wins and losses. It seemed that his little brother Sergio began picking up steam and I really believe it put a fire back under him. He began to look like he cares again and he doesn’t look washed up anymore. He seems like he has more fire behind him despite still dropping a few fights. He is fighting competitively by nature again. His dance partner across the cage is Diego Ferreira and even tho he is 2 years his elder, I think it’s fair to say he doesn’t have as much cage time as Pettis has and that’s where fighting age is different than numerical age. Diego is a BJJ savant with a 3rd-degree black belt in BJJ and a well-decorated player in tournament play. There is something about Diego that is extremely silent and dangerously underrated. He flies under the radar and that is something that is a blessing and a curse in today’s MMA market. With that said Pettis is KO slouch on the ground. A black belt himself, he has an extremely slippery and creative back game. However, all black belts are not created equal and Diego is far and away the better grappler. Pettis is going to want to really bring his dynamic striking into Diego’s face making him hesitate and backup before he takes a shot. Keep the fight moving forward and Diego moving backward. It would be wise that showtime stays showtime on his feet and not on the ground because if he tests the chops of this BJJ Ace, it could be a long flight back to Wisconsin.
The Pick: Ferreira
UFC 246 PRELIMS
Maycee Barber $9500 vs. Roxanne Modafferi $6700
Modafferi is such an odd fighter to watch. Her slow, sloth-like style and her uncoordinated ability make it so hard to pick her in fights, yet she defies many odds with her sheer grit and toughness. Her standup game is extremely scary to watch but underneath all her knee supports and stiff movements, Modafferi is one slick grappler when you decide to enter her playground. The only issue, the woman across the cage from her has no desire to play that game. Barber has a different idea and plan for this fight. Bring heat, aggression, speed and a boatload of volume to smother Modafferi with a war of leather. There is no way that Modafferi can keep up with this youngster’s aggression. However, what Modafferi has that Barber doesn’t is a boatload of experience that if she’s smart, can bait barber to the ground somehow. You’re not going to just walk over Modafferi. She won’t allow and she isn’t wired to just lay down and die even if she’s getting completely worked over. She is the type of fighter that will throw up Hail Mary attempts if they are there. She will show desperation at times but when you lack her athleticism, sometimes you need to show desperation earlier in fights rather than later. I like Modafferi. I really do. It’s hard not to. She takes what is given to her and she makes the best of it. With that said Barber is just too going and throws way too much volume for Modafferi to handle. Barber’s enemy here can be throwing too much heat early looking for the finish and then realize that Modafferi is still walking forward. The gas tank may start dwindling and that is Modafferi can slowly but surely start taking over. However, I can’t bank on that. The stars are aligning for barber and I need to ride her until she proves me otherwise.
The Pick: Barber
Andre Fili $7700 vs. Sodiq Yusuff $8500
This to me is the fight of the night. Well, the potential of being fight of the night at least. Both of these guys have extremely high skill sets but they bring a slightly different style which makes for a very good fight. Yusuff has hellashish power and is literally a one-hitter quitter away from sparking his opposition out cold. With a 10-1 record, he has 6 by way of KO. The issue with his style is that he isn’t extremely dynamic with his approach. He is powerful, he knows he’s powerful and everything he throws is in the attempt to set you up for a grenade at some point. Against Mike Davis, you can hear Davis talk about powerful he was in his corner. To the point where his corner was telling him that they knew it sucked but you need to dig deep. Mike Davis did dig deep bit just not as deep as Yusuff that night. Yusuf will be facing someone that may not have his power but does have speed, a wiry frame that can cause some issues for a stationary fighter and also has a very good wrestling and grappling game that he can lean on. In a normal pedigree fighter with power and hands that they so heavily rely on, it’s hard to believe that they would have a takedown defense to keep it there. Yusuff has great takedown defense and normally where Fili would like to take it there, he may have his hands full getting it into his yard and if he can’t then he will find himself playing a very dangerous game on the feet with Yusuff. If he is stranded on the feet, he will need to use his length and speed to keep Yusuff at bay and out of power range. I think he will for the most part but the more damaging strikes will be landed by Yusuff and that could sway the judges in what I am expecting to be a very, very good fight. Yusuff convinces the judges with a couple of bigger more damaging spots.
The Pick: Yusuff
Drew Dober $6900 vs. Nasrat Haqparast $9300
Another really good fight. Drew Dober is someone that I always had my antennas on. Solid all-around game with a concentration in striking. As time travels on his career, he has proven the ability to adapt and create more avenues and paths to win. He showed wrestling and good hip entries in his last couple fights, and training in elevation has certainly helped his cause. There aren’t many fighters out there that are flying under the radar but it seems like this card has quite a few and Dober to me is def one of them. However, there is another major prospect standing across from him in Haqparast. A guy who literally looks like he has the tools to be something special and who Really looks like the stunt double of Kelvin Gastelum. An almost groomed assassin from the wings of Zahabi and Tri-Star, Haqparast makes certain senses of mine really jump off the sensory board. The extremely technical striker has 11 wins with 9 by way of KO. In his 2 losses, he has only lost once inside the horn by way of submission in his very first fight. If anyone can mold the angles and smooth the corners, it is the brilliant combative mind of Faris Zahabi. Zahabi’s philosophy is really only understood by the creative minds that can really think outside of the walls of common and simplistic laws of thinking. He believes in patients, creating offense through defense and defense through offense. He doesn’t look at them as two separate commodities. He looks at them as one entity that plays in concert with each other to formulate even flow. He is one of my favorite trainers by far due to his innate ability to use the mind and its creative loopholes to create a style that can be seamless if used by the right student. However, I say the word student because this young man is still a work in progress and Drew Dober is much more seasoned and polished. This by far is his biggest test to date, and I am looking forward to seeing if Dober decides to stand and trade with Haqparast since they both come from similar minefields, or will Dober look to implore some newly found toys in the attic to see what Hap can play with and what he can’t. Such a super tough fight for me to call here and I think it’s actually disgusting and insulting that Dober is this heavy of a dog in this fight. This fight should be much much closer from an odds perspective. I am picking Haqparast here but this should be a really close scrap and I’m here to tell you that Vegas without a doubt got this one very wrong.
The Pick: Haqparast
Justin Ledet $7400 vs. Aleksa Camur $8800
So every once in a while even I have a cold take on fighters. Lol. Justin Ledet held a special place with me due to his boxing pedigree. The guy looked like he had extremely slick boxing with a killer jab that showed some dictation in MMA as Larry Holmes has in boxing. Don’t get it twisted, I’m not saying he is anything like Larry Holmes but he did utilize his jab as a very big building block to his overall attack which you don’t see often in MMA. A good jab game is a lost art in all ends of the spectrum and Ledet seemed to bring it with him like an old school fighter using the foot stomp technique. That coupled with an extremely slick grappling game, it seemed as Ledet was on to something. However, sometimes we do run into some mirages and it seems that Ledet looked better than he is from afar. However, people are really piling on him because he dropped two in a row, but can we look at who they were against? Two red hot fighters at the time in Johnny Walker and Alexander Rakic who seemed to look like the future of the division until recently. Before that, Ledet’s record has been flawless outside of one no contest. I get it, he has not fought anyone, but this doesn’t take away that the guy does have some skill that has been on the wrong end of the win/loss column as of late. I wouldn’t consider him something to be excited about but if he finds his confidence and his way out of the woods, then Ledet can be a decent fighter. He takes on a young contender series fighter at 5-0 that has 4 by way of TKO and 1 by way of submission. Camur can make heavyweight easily. You can tell by his legs. The kid is a big kid. Powerful puncher, aggressive, and has a decent kicking game when he used it. However, he is very raw and he does throw a bit unchained. We also have no idea what would happen if he ended up on his back or in a situation where he had to really roll around a bit. Majority of his handy work is on the feet. I feel that they are bringing Ledet in here to be a slaughtered lamb in a sense and I think this one may backfire a bit. All the people that Camur fought could never dictate terms of the fight. They didn’t have the ability to play matador and use the jab to keep him honest. He also was never really tested on the ground, somewhere that Ledet has no issues going with 5 submissions under his belt. Camur holds the eraser in his power but he’s going to need to get by the smooth jab of Ledet if he plans on using it. Give me the dog and his mullet one last time here but he’s going to need to start checking leg kicks to do so.
The Pick: Ledet
Askar Askarov $8700 vs. Tim Elliott $7500
Close fight here, but I think it’s black or white with how it needs to go down for both men. Elliott is the better wrestler when it comes to explosion for takedowns and igniting top control. However, he is a little loose and unchained and keeping the position isn’t always something that happens for him. At the end of the day, you can have 5 takedowns, but if you can’t pin a position with control, then it really doesn’t matter that much. He will fight a guy in Askarov who may not have the explosion looking for the hips but when he is on the ground he is an extremely tight and educated grappler. Methodical and understands control very well. I can see Elliott secure some takedowns, but losing control on the ground, giving up the lead of the dance to Askarov where he will not lose that control. It’s a very close fight but Askarov wins the control battle here and wins a tough fought fight.
The Pick: Askarov
Brian Kelleher $7600 vs. Ode Osbourne $8600
This fight is really premised on what Kelleher is willing to give us. Kelleher is the prototypical fighter that really can give you some high moments and give you some very low moments. But if you look at his major path to victory here, it’s quite simple. He needs to choose a lane and stay in it. The main mane for him here, in my opinion, is securing takedowns and using his experience to really stay within the accessible trigger points of this fight, because he is giving up a huge reach advantage here in which Osbourne has some game on the feet. So Kelleher is going to really have to keep this close to Osbourne’s weakness which is takedown defense. Once he gets it there, he needs to really be patient and use his black belt in BJJ to chain some resourceful situations. However, my biggest gripe with him is that for a guy that has a lot to say about analyzing fights, you would think he had very cage IQ, but that’s not the case. He tends to get baited in and he tends to give other fighters what they want. With that said, Osbourne may be a smidge lower level in every aspect in this game but if Kelleher gives him what he wants then that can be an issue for Kelleher. Kelleher should absolutely win this fight and I am choosing him but my confidence in him is at a very low level at this point. I would not be shocked if he blows this fight which he really should win.
The Pick: Kelleher
JJ Aldrich $8200 vs. Sabina Mazo $8000
Aldrich is the type of fighter who I never have interest in. She is like a robot when she fights. You know what you are getting from her from opening bell to closing bell. She is going to give you that traditional point style stand up fighter and that’s fine and good but if you face someone that is a little more dynamic than her with a little more pressure and isn’t afraid to engage the Aldrich can really start to look like she’s stuck in the mud. She starts early, keeps her exact game plan and all you really need to do is adjust and pace her. If you do that then there is no reason you can’t beat her. She isn’t a power puncher and getting a finish is not something that is very common with Aldrich. Mazo isn’t very good but she does have the kicking game that can neutralize Aldrich’s traditional boxing style. This boils down to Mazo and if she is comfortable enough to tie things together making Aldrich look stationary to the judges. Aldrich is tough and will be there most likely for the duration but I think the judges see Mazo as the more busy, diverse, and more effective striker in this one giving her the nod.
The Pick: Mazo
UFC 246 DRAFTKINGS
At his price, there is no way I don’t take some swings here. I’m not expecting him to win, but the price is right. And while the field of the common fan will be all over McGregor, if Cerrone pulls off the upset, you could leapfrog quite a big chunk of players. I would not fade him totally. Have a few pints here.
I’m honestly not crazy about his price here. If he wins, it most likely will be early. You’re not getting takedowns, transitions or anything like that. So if he finishes early, he can hover around his price tag. I’m not fading him totally, but I don’t see him as being a dude piece of the puzzle.
Holm $8900 / Pennington $7300
This fight in a whole is a fade for me. Holm is too expensive and I just don’t see Pennington braying Holm. Scratch it.
Very very small. I have zero confidence here, but my confidence lies if he can hit the floor at some point. I’m not expecting anything from this man so I will play him very very small. But the window is there if he finds it.
I mean, he can technically win this fight. He’s long, rangy, and has the ability to keep his opposition at range. However, he really doesn’t have power and he really isn’t that good. I wouldn’t hate you if you tried a small plug, but I’m personally off it.
Yes, I know people lost all faith in her and think she is a shell of who she was. Maybe so, but at $8300, I’m willing to find out. I’ll have some.
Never liked this girl. Always thought she was highly overrated until she fought KK and had a very impressive performance. With that said, I don’t see her keeping up with this pace unless CG gasses, which is very possible. I think Grasso gets love in this spot, and I’m passing.
$7200 for Pettis. You have to take a small swing. It’s criminal not to. He’s not a sacrificial lamb in this fight even though I expect him to lose.
A bit pricey here, but I can see a lot of even flow with these two. I’m not afraid of Diego here. I’ll have some.
Super expensive here, but she should really put in work. This is the way I’m playing this. I will have her in some lineups for sure, but please avoid her in others. She is going to be the chalk, and remember, she is young. Very young. Roxy is extremely experienced and may be able to drag this affair out. So play this one smart. Get a taste but don’t get out of control.
I just don’t see her beating Barber. I see her making it to the horn, but I don’t see her winning. I’m off her here.
I will indeed have some of Fili in this spot. He has a tough ask in front of him, but he is a legit live dog here.
Pricey here, but he wins and most likely covers. I’ll have some.
This is actually criminal that he is this cheap. I’m picking Haqparast to win the fight, but there isn’t a shot in hell I’m not giving Dober some love here. In actual reality, this is a very good fight. He’s the farthest thing from a $6900 punt. Get a few shares.
Pricey, but the kid is a talent. I’m not sure how I feel about this tag tho. Light. Don’t overdo it here.
$7400 is usually around where Ledet will hover in wins. He’s not going to give you slate breaking points. He jabs his way to victory, and if you are lucky enough to grab a submission, then you’re probably set. I am very hesitant to say very, very small and not fade, but I think everyone is off him here so I may have only 1 or 2 in play with him. But I won’t fade many dogs who I think can win the fight, and I think he can win this fight. Very, very. very small.
Askarov $8700 / Elliott $7500
Despite the pricing, I will be playing both sides of this exciting fight.
I know he can’t be trusted, but he’s worth a look at $7600. Without a doubt, a live dog.
I’m fading him here. I have enough high-mids who I like better.
Aldrich $8200 / Mazo $8000
Mazo or fade totally for me. I’m not showing interest here unless I really have no choice in some lineups.
