Ya, how about this. Be a Rabid fan of MMA for 5yrs, know not only UFC and pride fighters, but 75% of the secondary league fighters inside and out, then spend 3 days before the event studying tape, records, and fighters to make your pick...
Then coming out 3-7
you studied the tape and still thought Eastman would beat mccfedries? really? what was your rationale?
I didn't study anything and honestly thought Eastman would pull it out. I thought he would be able to back up and avoid his bombs and wait for him to gas out and then pick him apart when he didn't have to get worried about the KO. I honestly think McFedries is the hardest puncher in his weight class...if not the whole organization. Plus, he was coming off that brutal staph infection. Anyways, I put too much thought into it and didn;t give McFedries enough credit...but it wasn't THAT dumb of a pick.
PS - this question wasn't directed towards me, but that was my thinking going into it..I assume his was similar.
Moral: Overthinking is usually bad. Go with instinct.
