What Went Wrong at UFC Vegas 71?
Huh, this normally doesn’t take place up until, like, June. I’m being extremely effective this year.
In all severity, I’m sorry. I utilized to have the touch and now I don’t. I’ve been handling persistent sleeping disorders and sleep apnea considering that March of in 2015, which has to do with when things initially went off the rails, however I don’t believe I can blame that for my bad decision-making when my “Prelims” choices are doing fine for the many part.
As is American custom, I’ll be bailing myself out. That stated, if this one likewise folds, I believe I’m hanging up my visor and tones. I’m fed up with coming out of fight cards eliminated at finest or unpleasant at worst, of not having the ability to take pleasure in things like Brandon Royval kneeing Matheus Nicolau’s head into the upper deck since I selected Nicolau and “Number Going Down: is more stressful than the happiness of ape smashing ape can get rid of.
Aight, enough moping … back to the grind!
She controlled Brogan Walker all over, and while she might have had the ability to require the interruption with a bit more aggressiveness, she did her task and I can’t knock her for it.
The “No Contest” was the best call. Evander Holyfield would take pride in that head butt (watch it).
Well, she revealed the fumbling and striking required to subdue Dumont. She simply waited 8 minutes to do so, and winning the 3rd frame more decisively than the losing the very first 2 rounds just counts in Asian blended martial arts (MMA) promos.
I stated Mohammed Usman wouldn’t evaluate Tafa’s takedown defense and I was extremely, extremely incorrect. Tafa revealed less passion to get to his feet than he did against a journeyman in a podunk promo in 2015, and being available in a minimum of 15 pounds above his perfect weight didn’t assist. It was simply an exceptionally unfortunate efficiency.
Like Rosa, he showed the abilities required to win his fight just when it was far too late to matter. I stated Gomis’ kicks and motion would provide him concerns, however relied on Marshall’s aggressiveness and takedowns to smother “Jaguar’s” offense. Marshall didn’t dedicate to doing so up until he was currently in an 0-2 hole.
Semelsberger has actually constantly been simple to remove, however I can’t remember him ever being this material with being stuck on his back. The last time he battled a devoted grappler, he dragged A.J. Fletcher through hell after a rough preliminary. Here, he appeared completely content to simply while away rounds in his closed guard regardless of his corner yelling at him to do something — ANYTHING — to get up.
It actually simply makes Jake Matthews’ persistence on striking with him even more mysterious.
I seem like whatever cruel trickster god I upset in 2022 has one of the most enjoyable when I with confidence assert that somebody has the edge in resilience. Sergei Pavlovich ended up taking in some beast counters without flinching, then damaging Blaydes into submission where the similarity Mark Hunt and Alistair Overeem stopped working.
UFC Vegas 72 Odds For The Under Card:
Jake Collier (-115) vs. Martin Buday (-105)
I’d suggest a little bet on Buday. If he in fact follows his normal gameplan — particularly bullying Collier against the fence and destroying his day with knees — this is a really winnable match for him. He didn’t follow that gameplan against Lukasz Brzeski, however, so keep it modest.
Julian Erosa (-150) vs. Fernando Padilla (+130)
Padilla has actually been out considering that 2021 and both guys have the methods to end up the other in an immediate, so I’m leaving this one alone.
Charles Johnson (-150) vs. Cody Durden (+130)
Johnson is so painfully irregular that I’d rather not get cash included. I’d be all over that -150 line if this was 5 rounds, however Johnson can take so long to enter into equipment that buying a three-rounder is a bad concept unless the stylistic match up is remarkably uneven.
Stephanie Egger (-305) vs. Irina Alekseeva (+255)
Egger need to trample Alekseeva in the clinch. That stated, Alekseeva’s been out for some time, so avoid it.
Brian Kelleher (-140) vs. Journey Newson (+120)
Too near call. If you demand betting, however, rely on Kelleher’s aggressiveness to win.
Jamey-Lyn Horth (-135) vs. Hailey Cowan (+115)
Though I do prefer Horth’s striking and takedown defense to sink Cowan, the previous is going up in weight after a prolonged layoff, so there’s excessive unpredictability to require financial investment.

UFC Vegas 72 Odds For The Main Card:
Ricky Simon (-120) vs. Song Yadong (EVEN)
Between Simon’s periodic resilience concerns and Song’s periodic battles on the mat, each male has the methods to destroy the other, making this too unstable to bank on. Just relax and take pleasure in the carnage.
Caio Borralho (-350) vs. Michal Oleksieczjuk (+290)
Skip it. The odds are too uneven to warrant a bet on Borralho, and while Oleksieczjuk revealed against Cody Brundage that he can turn the script at a minute’s notification, he’s flawed enough that betting on him doesn’t appeal, either.
Rodolfo Vieira (-245) vs. Cody Brundage (+205)
Definitely provide me Vieira at these odds. Brundage’s defensive grappling has actually regularly shown an action behind his offense, permitting Nick Maximov to acquire takedowns and the similarity William Knight and Michal Oleksiejczuk to reverse bad positions. That’s not going to suffice against a submission artist of this quality.
Marcos Rogerio De Lima (-165) vs. Waldo Cortes-Acosta (+140)
Most of the time, Rogerio De Lima is such a mess that you shouldn’t bank on him. That stated, he normally implodes by attempting to require grappling exchanges in striking fights he’s winning, which won’t be a concern here. Not just is Cortes-Acosta a non-factor on the ground, he’s so minimal on the feet that “Pezao’s” punching need to pay dividends. I prefer the Brazilian all over, so put your faith in him.
Josh Quinlan (N/A) vs. Trey Waters (N/A)
Waters is making a two-week turn-around to change Ange Loosa on brief notification, so the odds aren’t out sometimes of composing.
