The $100 Experiment: UFC 88 Results

Ugh, I got slammed here by a combination of bad lucks and bad picks.  Here's how the night went:

Liddell vs. Evans, $9 on Liddell @ -260.  Lost $9.  This was the killer.  I was so sure Liddell would win this fight, and I was absolutely shocked to see him get KTFO'd.  Is Chuck getting old?  Is Rashad getting better?  Either way, it sucks, and it lost me nine bucks.

Marquardt vs. Kampmann, $5 Marquardt @ -125.  Won $4.  I felt pretty good here, as I wasn't that impressed with Kampmann, even in his wins against McFedries and Rivera.  I felt Marquardt deserved to be more of a favorite, and the bet here paid off.

MacDonald vs. Lambert, $2 on Lambert @ +155.  Lost $2.  This was a stupid bet.  I thought Lambert would perform better at 185, and he sure as hell looked a lot better at these weigh-ins than he has in the past.  I also thought maybe MacDonald hadn't had enough time to prepare, since he fought Maia so recently.  For whatever reason, I neglected the simple fact that MacDonald is just the better fighter.

2-way parlay on Kim and Boetsch, $4 to win $1.98.  Won $1.98.  Thought they were both in a different league than their opponents.  True of Boetsch, not as true of Kim.

Another huge disappointment here was the cancellation of Parisyan vs. Yoshida.  I had money on Yoshida at +190, and thought he had at LEAST a 50% chance to win there.

Overall, I ended the night down $5.02.  Rather disappointing, but there will be plenty of opportunities to recuperate, with UFC 89 and 90 so close around the corner.
