    Remember that story where if you bet on every main card fight underdog in 2007 you would be up a bunch of money?

    I don't think it's a bad deal.

    Betting against the higher rank isn't as risky in MMA compared to doing it to say college football or something.
     
  7. yeah, underdogs have a great record in UFC title fights
     
  8. That said, I don't think +191 is worth it. For that to be fair odds, sherk has to win about 35% of the time. Now, 5 rounds, plus how hard it is to stop sherk, and maybe BJ gasses, maybe he hurts himself, maybe he quits and fishes for gogoplatas for 2 rounds like he did vs. GSP. I don't think that adds up to 35%

    I'll wait for now.

    I cant see how Sherk wins this fight. But I have thought that alot in the last 18 months and been proven wrong quite alot.
     
  10. Penn has NOT fought more 5 round fights than sherk. You were corrected on that in the last thread.

    Sherk:

    Franca
    Florian
    Hughes

    Penn:

    Uno
    Pulver
     
  11. Also of note: BJ didn't win either of his 5 rounders.

    BJ is a monster, but Sherk is VERY hard to finish. He's only been stopped once in all his long career, and he takes fights LONG. It's not like he's anderson silva just murdering everyone in 1 minute. He's in there scrapping for 2 or 3 rounds, and not getting finished.

    I will be betting on Sherk.

    Either I see a murderous, bloody finish or win some money on a 5 round decision.

    Win-win.

    I just dont see how Sherk gets finished by Penn....He will fight cautious, take Penn down and lay and pray his way to a 5 round victory

    Take the 1000 that you would loose making this bet and just invest it in blow and hookers leading up to the fight

    Those are bad odds imo. If he was on steroids then expect to see a weaker Sherk. BJ was stronger than him when they fought the same opponents at 170 and I think he'll be stronger at 155.
