cant wait for the oleivera/miller fight. i dont know why they arent the co-main event instead of struve/mccorkle. alves/doomsday should be exciting as long as alves is hungry.

Could still be, the order the sites list the fights in is not always the exact fight order.

Especially true in Canada, and when facing a guy who calls himself "Awesomely Awesome".

Audinwood-Makdessi is up first. Arena already at least 2/3 full.

Hopefully nobody else took this advice. 2 30-27s and 1 30-26, Makdessi. I see an Awesomely Awesome cut next week.

No way. If ever in doubt, you should pick the hometown hero. Pick the germans in germany, australians in australia, canadians in canada. That's my system for any undercarders I have little to no information on and it's incredibly successful lol.

Only pick against the canadians if they're fighting in the states.

Well, there are several Canadians on the card tonight, so we'll see how it shakes out. I feel that local (and often lesser) talent is sometimes brought in locally to sell tickets though.

I find that any time there's a card outside of the states you will be guaranteed that there will be a minimum of 1-2 undercard fights where an unknown but talented hometown fighter is set up with someone he's expected to beat. I think it's a strategy they use not only to get ticket sales, but also to get the crowd pumped up early for the main card.

I'm only talking about the undercard fights between virtually unknown fighters though. The rule doesn't apply if the fighters are remotely well known or on the main card.

First Canadian loss tonight. 3 30-27s, Almeida. Run, Ricardo, Run.

Canada now 2-1 as Pierson solves the Riddle. 3 30-27s. Junkie had it 30-26 Pierson via a 10-8 round 1.

0-3 with a blown parlay is not how I like to start the night
Aether

2-1 16 points

Riddle got dominated according to the writeups. It also doesn't sound like he even tried to use his wrestling. Kind of interested to see this fight.

That sucks mind you looking back on my parlay i don't even know why i bothered: Event Parlay Wager on D. Hazelett, R. Almeida, J. Stevenson Potential Earnings: $1,235
Potential Loss: $1,000... If only I double checked it before hand...

Picks wise 1-2 so far....

apparently I didn't switch my pick back to Natal. I bet money on him, but my pick says bongfelt....

oops. Go water bong.

majority draw 30-30, 30-30, 30-30- not sure I've ever seen that!
Aether
12/11/10 9:04:16PM
I thought that might happen by reading the description. Sounds like Natal won rounds 1 and 2 then gassed and got dominated in the third.

I have no clue how the judges get 30-30 though, that makes no sense at all unless every round was 10-10 which is ridiculous.

12/11/10 9:04:37PM
For realz? 10-10 for all three rounds by all three judges!? The fight was that close? What is this, Shooto?
Aether
12/11/10 9:06:13PM
if you read the play-by-plays it sounds like the scores should be 28-28 across the board. I have no clue how they got 30-30s.... really weird.
Aether
12/11/10 9:07:32PM
yeah they're saying now that the scores were read incorrectly and they're waiting for an update. I'm guessing it's going to be 28-28 x2 and a 29-28.

As they say in horse racing, HOLD ALL TICKETS! Junkie says the wrong scores were announced. Correct scores when they become available.

At the top of the site there's a banner that has changing messages. There's a little arrow on the right edge of that banner that lets you cycle through the messages, look for the one that says watch the prelims live and click it.

Yeah they hid it really really well.

ugh. Good thing I've got to go to work soon. Rough night of picks so far.

Nice moves by Bocek. I didn't expect him to sub Hazelett.

It's working for me. Go to the main page and lcick on the banner that takes you to ufclive.com or go to modules.ufc.com/live and find the "Free UFC 124 Prelims Show" button and click on it.

3-1-1 and half of my parlay clear. 21 points. I wish Bocek-Hazelett was the hot bout because I have no clue who's going to win that one, heh.

Heh. They're playing "War Pigs" in the arena.
