man, 5-4 after starting out 4-0. it happens every event.



4 wins, 5 losses tonight for me. What the hell is with these upsets? I think the oddsmakers know less about MMA than I do. I have to trust my insticts from now on...

You should always go with your instincts and not the odds in MMA.

7-2 for me, didn't gain any cash though really.


This was a way better card for me then Pride 34 and UFC 70.

hey does anyone else think that the salaverry-martin fight was bullshit? Premature stoppage and hammerstrikes to _the back of the head_.

I didn't see the fight but the written record of it sounded (or read) like Ivan got knocked out from the slam.

edit

ok saw the fight and I can't tell because the ref was in the way.

From MMA:

UFC 71: Liddel vs. Jackson
May 26, 2007 @ Las Vegas, Nevada

Chuck Liddell vs. Quinton Jackson
Karo Parisyan vs. Josh Burkman
Ivan Salaverry vs. Terry Martin
Keith Jardine vs. Houston Alexander
Chris Leben vs. Kalib Starnes
Din Thomas vs. Jeremy Stephens
James Irvin vs. Thiago Silva
Eric Schafer vs. Sean Salmon
Wilson Gouveia vs. Carmelo Marrero
--------------------------------------------------

C'mon Chris Leben and Kalib Starnes, both guys no one gives a shit about. Sean Salmon tried a friggin Karate Kid Jump kick on Rashad Evens. Karo Parisyan = overrated.

What the hell is wrong with Dana, putting on a crap show like this.



i love how it turns out to be a great card with crazy shit going down. everyfight was off the hook great card ufc i hope 72 has some great fights so ppl don't cry to hard for paying for it.

People always complain about a weak fight card, and it usually turns out to be just a bunch of whining. Great looking fight cards (UFC 68) sometimes turn out to be totally lame, and lame fight cards (Pride 33) sometimes turn out to be fantastic.

As too all the "upset" talk, the only upset I saw was the Jardine fight. But Houston was a total unknown, and you gotta expect the unexpected in a situation like that.

First event predictions for me.....and what an event to start with. Ended up with 4 wins & 5 losses.

Don't know about anyone else but i enjoyed UFC 71 more than quite a few recent events and i'm loving the recent amount of upsets there has been.

Don't worry, most people went 5/4 or 4/5 (I went 4/5 and moved back about 50 places). I would be enjoying the upsets more if I wasn't making these fantasy picks, lol.

I signed up with 3/10 events remaining, so I'm not at all worried about this season.
