    I'm on all the favorites again.... Parlay'd in 2's probably..

    Pitbull has a shot but I think he gets out worked again if he doesn't get the KO or Sub finish at some point. I'll be taking Straus by Decision myself if the props pop up..

    I mean your right JIBBERS.....BUT I just cant stand laying -465 on a guy that will most likely take it to decision...Mazzotta is game and will do down fighting.....-465 might cash but it will be close and 465 pays a hundo? no thanks....McKee by decision if you like that bet...

    Agreed on Mckee probably by decision... Would take Mazzotta by sub as a hedge is offered.. Dude is game on the ground but I think McKee is better and stays undefeated.. http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Dominic-Mazzotta-95933

    Very true....McKee has been point fighting lately as well....he could find himself in the middle of a war......if it turns into a point game McKee will cruise into decision like you said...

    I might try $50 on Mazzotta at those odds as well.. Those odds are just so high... Even though I think he probably loses by decision it's worth a shot..

    I might end up playing Pitbull for $75 as well as they always fight close fights which go one way or the other...

    I will be parlay'ing up McFairaine and Awad for $150 to help cover the Mazzotta and Pitbull losses if they happen...

    Likely going to ride with JIBBYs approach on this one and parlay all of the faves, has worked out for me in the past. JIBBY - do you have any idea of how successful(record) you have been when you do parlay all of the faves on these bellator cards?

    Only lost one Bellator card this year betting favorites... Bellator has always treated me right...

    Has anyone seen Ryan Quinn fight recently?

    Seems like he's mostly a ground fighter. Wondering if his wrestling is any good.

    This card seems like it may be setup to give underdogs better than normal chances of winning.

    Decent with his wrestling and takedowns.. Not a gimmie fight for Awad.. He is ready for it though and expects it.. Awad has decent TD defense on the flip.. I think the fight stays standing and Awad wins on points.. Well I'm hoping it goes that way...

    Ryan Quinn's last opponent was Matt McGrath.

    I see McGrath has wins over Jesse Ronson who fought in the UFC and Michael Hill who was on the ultimate fighter.

    Quinn also trains out of american top team.

    It makes me wonder if Quinn is better than I'm giving him credit for being.

    I just saw AJ McKee on a popular livestream playing paintball in Cali, he just happened to be there. Didn't realize it was him and he has an 8-0 record as well. Maybe UFC caliber fighter one day.
