Yeah, he already had a flukey injury fighting Coleman, so thats probably a safe bet.

Honestly though, if you're that far down in the money rankings, you have nothing to gain by betting on sure things because you won't make money. I've got my whooping $60 bankroll on Jardine, because at least if that goes down I've got a little more money to play with.

Well that's the reason why your not winning bets. The underdog wins maybe once out of nine fights, if that. The chances of you picking the underdog win, are slim. When I had a lot of money, I would put all of it on one guy, and win double the money I put in. Then I went with Naoyuki Kotani thinking like most people that he was going to beat Dennis Siver, and when he didn't, I lost all my money. Since then i've just been randomly betting hoping to get some money back. Anyway, yeah, don't bet on underdogs unless your willing to pick that same underdog in your picks. Even then really think about what your doing.

Well, even though that sucks, no sane person (it was insane to think that Jardine and Forrest could've won both their fights) could've predicted that both Liddell and Shogun would've lost to their opponents. Some people picked Jardine, and picked Shogun, and some picked Griffin and Chuck.. I think 77 will be right down the line and except for the Belcher/Starnes, and Silva/Franklin fights, all the others look like you could tell who's going to win it.

Hey, next time you make a bet, can you tell me what it is so I can pick the other guy? I think you're bad luck.

Seriously though, that sucks bro. Hopefully next season you can rake in the big bucks.

The DIn injury made no difference tbh, Kenny was always going to beat him

But unlucky with Shogun, i lost $350 on him which was painfull enough

I was bankrolling at about $600 after the 1st few events so its very possible with smart wagers to get back on top, UFC 77 looks to have good wager possibilities, Belcher is a dog when he should be a fave, you can clean up with him Jamie!
