i hadn't read about the feet. damn. if he keeps getting injured like this in the middle of fights, maybe he'd better reconsider his career.


and werdum is NOT the guy i wanted to face cain... because i think vai cavalo has the tools to pull the upset.

plenty of people also seem to think that werdum could upset JDS in a rematch. considering how much better he's gotten the last few years, it's hard to argue that too much.

I just don't think Werdum has the athletic ability to compete with Cain or JDS and both can KO him fairly easy imo while absorbing most his improved stand up striking he's just to slow imo. Massive props to him for improving as a fighter but his striking has come a long way.

Travis Browne needs to use his energy more effectively, even the way he moves he wastes a lot of energy than combine it with his size/throwing everything into punches he's never going to be effective for more than 1 round. I would not mind seeing Browne vs Nelson next.

China chin, synonymous to glass jaw. Meaning weak chin / jaw.

Ex.

Edson Barboza's glass jaw was shattered by a jab. His chin must be made in China.

I've been watching combat sports for so long I still don't know what the number on vegas odds mean. I know if the fighter has negative number, he is the favorite to win. Positive means underdog but what does those numbers mean?

For example:

Using UFC 126 as reference

Anderson Silva: - 220 (favorite)
Vitor Belfort: +175 (underdog)

what does -220 and + 175 mean?
