It was a slow weekend in MMA with no major cards headlining July 4th. Most of the build up is for this weekend’s UFC 100 which has garnered a significant amount of attention. After the weekend, here are my thoughts.
1. UFC 100 is getting the hype it deserves
UFC 100 is less than a week away and we are seeing great countdown previews, all the media outlets counting down their top moments and Spike TV is running the top 100 UFC fights of all time. This is the type of coverage that the UFC deserves and it’s fitting that it took them 100 Pay Pay View events to achieve it. I can’t wait to see what this week has in store for pre fight hype.
2. Alves, Mir and Bisping might be good bets
The betting line for these three continues to show them as overwhelming underdogs and while I think their opponents should be favoured, some of the lines show them at 2 to 3 to 1 underdogs. These fights are a lot closer than that, so if you are playing the line and not the actual fight, some of these underdogs are worth a play.
3. Having no MMA on the weekend is terrible
Lately we’ve become accustomed to a big MMA event every weekend with the UFC, improvements in Strikeforce, Affliction every few months. This weekend had very little in terms of regional shows and no major shows. Maybe we needed a break this past weekend, since this upcoming one will be legendary.
