    Henderson by unanimous decision
    Okami by unanimous decision
    Leben by second round KO
    Herring by second round submission
    Halverson by second round TKO
    Hazelett by first round submission
    Arlovski by first round KO
    Fitch by split decision
    Sanchez by unanimous decision

    How much are you guys wagering on this card? I'm trying not to spiral out of control like I did with the last few cards and capping myself at $2K total for a while even though last year was great for me. It's the first time that almost half of my picks have been underdogs but all of their recent losses can be explained away; I'm still sweating it a little but that's gambling for you.

    I got a parlay 5 (Henderson/Herring/Hazelett/Halverson/Okami) with a $100 on it and stand to win $3K if it hits.

    What about you cacs?

    I doubt henderson/silva will go to decision. I think silva has the tools that rampage didn't, to end this fight.
    I hoper herring wins because I don't really like kongo.
    AA ftw

    If you're sweating, you should leave gambling to the cold-blooded folks like Humungus and I. j/k :)

    I'm a little worried about the Hazelett fight but the rest I'm not really all that worried about honestly. Losing money doesn't bother me as much anymore because I would fully justify in my mind why I wagered on a person but Hazelett is a wildcard that I'm betting on based on his BJJ skills alone.

    I mean shit, I lost around $4K on UFC 79 and it didn't bother me too much.

    i honestly am not too sure about the silva/henderson fight. I WANT silva to win, but who knows. Either way, it's not making it out of the 2nd round.

    agreed, but i think Kos is winning for sure, and Sanchez is gonna lose.

    also think Silva is coming out on top, but that fight is really as un-callable as it gets.

    I wish i was a baller i wish i was taller i wish.....

    question : do you just pick a winner for the fights or does it have to be a little more specific?
    and where/ how do you place your bets? i think i might try this for next ufc.

    HAHA I'm hardly a baller but just a guy who got a nice sum of money off of car accidents. :p

    I just have to pick the winner and that's it.

    Bodog is very respectable when it comes to online wagering so go there. I have a bookie for all of my MMA wagering though.
