I enjoy watching it for the various techniques - both stand-up and when they go to ground.i cant watch UFC. I just cant stomach it. And this coming from someone who can watch boxing.
I enjoy watching it for the various techniques - both stand-up and when they go to ground.
But I also have a tough time stomaching how badly some people get beat up.
Unfortunately, the latter overcomes the former and I really don't watch it anymore...
That is not true...in fact much more technique required for MMA than for boxing...boxing is single-side punching only...MMA is both sides with different types of hand strikes, kicks, elbows, knees, combos and that is just the stand up side...then there is the whole BJJ set of techniques that are used in ground fighting...I really dont see much in it. boxing i see, this just looks like organized brawl..
Been burned many times in very similar scenarios, usually college ball ... Last three minutes both teams hit a half dozen threes and a dozen foul shots as they drag out the finishIf you're not a degen you can skip this story:
Nothing like sweating the under in a NBA game. SA/NO this afternoon Under 237. Check the game and its 81-77 after 3. Think it's in the bag since there would need to be a 80 pt. quarter for me to lose. They scored 77. NO fouls SA down 120-113 with 10 seconds left. I can see the future here. The Euro from SA with hit both FT's and NO will hit the last second three for a 238 total and a loss for me. Part one goes as scheduled, but the Pelicans miss that last three and thankfully SA gets the rebound to run out the last 3 seconds. Spurs 122 Pelicans 113
He had a wicked unlucky lip out on 14. That saved your arse skur!!!Hit probably the sickest bet of my life.
40x my normal fun bets. Tiger over 72.5 (par 70)
I've been tracking the leaderboard at work. He was at +2 twice but managed to bring it to -1 at one point with 3 straight birdies. He finishes 16 at E. I give up and go to lunch. Come back to check how he finished. Bogey on 17. Double bogey on 18. Ship it.
some interesting stuff coming out of the futures betting world.. A suit being filed in vegas because some sites are not paying out on futures tickets due to re-scheduling of events.. Many have vague rules and some claim events must take plays within 8 days of scheduled dates... It effects things like the French open which took place much later but many people have futures bets on the masters and dont know the tickets are worthless and will likely throw them away when their bet loses not even knowing they are due a refund already?
