UFC FIGHT NIGHT: BLAYDES VS. LEWIS

ufc

Well, folks, I wrote almost 1500 words about the fights last week.. and then proceeded to go 3-7 on the night. Hopefully, you were fading me and made money regardless of my misfortune. I said last week, 2021 has not been my year for picking fights. Weaker men would’ve quit while they were ahead, I simply am not cut from such fragile cloth. I will make even more picks and you will begin to praise me again for my money-making powers. Water always finds its level and because I am a little superstitious, we are changing the approach with the picks…time for a SPEED ROUND!

Here are the extended fight odds:
