Berlin was not a good week! Despite picking 3 out of 5 fights I went 1-1 and 2-1 in both my bets! Who let me down? Well Niklas Backstrom and Alan Omer were the culprits. My new pal Arnold Alan with the upset over Omer and Noad Lahat picking up a decision victory over Backstrom. We were unlucky last week but it’s about time to get back on form.
Here’s what I got for you for UFC Fight Night 70 Florida …
Week 12 Opening Balance
Bet #1 – 7.50 units … Lyoto Machida by KO or on Points… wins +12.50 units
Bet #2 – 2.50 units … Dias, Ponzinibbio and Carlos Junior to win … wins +15.50 units
2 bets again this week and as always, one I think sure-fire and the other I take some risk on.
Quite why everyone is writing off Lyoto Machida after just one rough day at the office against Rockhold is very puzzling. Romero is coming in off a big streak of wins but many of them have been fortuitous and it’s about time his luck came to an end. Machida is a world class striker who can end a fight with a single calculated strike. I don’t think he will win by submission so I’ve improved my odd on him by putting a with a by KO or points in the mix. He either starches him on the feet or outlasts Romero (who gasses easily!) over 5 rounds.
The other bet is nothing more than a bet on two deserved favorites and an underdog who I think has a great chance of winning. Ponzinibbio is facing Larkin who before his last fight was on a big 3 fight skid and looking like he was going nowhere. Ponzinibbio should never be the odds he is for such a good talent. There is value in him so check out his line closer to the fight as it’s like to drift further out.

Ladies Fight Night 7: “Double Trouble” Preview
Polish women’s federation Ladies Fight Night is going to celebrate their second birthday this year on the 15th to 17th of December. Two days, two events with a lot of great bouts.
LFN in Poland is being titled the new Invicta FC. The Polish owners created this federation to give European women a chance to fight on a big platform.
Hosting their first ever event in December 2015, LFN will hold two great cards next week, that will feature women who have fought under many prestigious promotions, such as the UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Glory, and Kunlun.
Two days of fantastic fights, intensified by a double dose of sports impressions. The name is not accidental, LFN 7 / LFN 8 combines two events, during which the best Polish fighters will be shown, as well as the best fighters from Europe (including France, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic and Romania)
The stakes are high, and we are electrified by the clashes between warriors such as Żaneta Cieśla vs Silvia La Notte and Patricia Axling vs. Cindy Silvestri. Mainly due to their vastness of their experience in the cage.
In the fight of the evening, the talented Romanian Cristina Stanciu will face Magdaléna Šormovádo. Stanciu fought twice in the UFC, but she was unfortunately cut from the promotion after suffering consecutive losses to Cortney Casey and Maryna Moroz.
Judyta Rymarzak vs Marta Waliczek is an amazing fight between two experienced kickboxers. Both making their pro MMA debuts on the night, we will witness a one-of-a-kind duel between two kickboxing perfectionists, as they look to transcend their skills into the MMA world.
