I went 7-4 with 61 pts. That's a decent event for me points wise and average wins wise. All my losses were on the undercard, which was ok considering they were all guesses.

I hit my parlay as well so I consider this one of the better UFC events I've had.

This is definitely one of the better events I've ever had. Maybe not points-wise, but overall, for sure.

8-2 w/63 points

For the 2nd consecutive event, I hit my parlay (Maia, McCrory, Florian). I also won $3900 on Jones. Prior to these last 2 events, I had pretty much broken even or lost money on 8 consecutive events.

I ended up winning over $15,000 overall.

I had a good event; It'd be my pleasure to share my strategy with my fellow playgrounders.

First I take a look at the matchups.

Next I flip a coin.

Then I disregard if it's heads or tails and I simply pick the winners.

You went 6-4...there were only 10 fights.

72 points... I went 9-1, so yeah, there were only 10 fights.

Manny blew it for me though, I had (3) 11's too.

I honestly gave that a 95%-5% for Emerson, and most of that 5% was that Mannys shoulder would dislocate again.

I thought the exact same thing. I saw Manny grinding out a hard fought decision, but I in no way thought Emerson TKO in less than a minute. Props to Emerson for taking advantage of Manny's super sloppy stand up.

Yeah nothing that I've ever seen from Emerson would lead me to believe he could have much to offer Gamburyan, but he did what he needed to, it was brutal.

man i went 5-5. i wasn't a member to this site, but since UFC 83 i picked almost perfectly.

Startin at UFC 83 I've actually kept track of my record, cuz me and my friends make bets and stuff, and I only bet on the televised card for those too, but my record was 28-5, and that includes both TUF finale, and UFN, but excludes UFC 87
