Wow, the streak continues, as Will Brooks luckily edged Ross Pearson in a decision which could of gone either way. And also I get an extra point from Josh Stansbury winning, which was a complete shit in the dark. Anyways, if you don’t know what this post is all about, I’ll briefly fill you in. I can only select one fighter to be my lock of the week and that said fighter, can only be selected once this year (2016). I earn 1 point for a correct pick, however a wrong pick will reset me back to 0. I can add an additional 1 point to my total by picking an upset right, which does not reset my total if it’s wrong (That’s to make me look better). I will tweak this as we go!
Streak: 9 (Lock of the Day) + 6 (Upset of the Day) = 15
Lock of the Day: T.J. Dillashaw
Note: Tell me how the former Bantamweight Champion loses this fight? He’s going to get taken down? He’s going to get out struck? Umm no, his volume striking, speed and pace is going to crush Assuncao, who is coming into this after a long layoff.
Upset of the Day: Brock Lesnar
Note: Why the hell not… Either he will get knocked out or he will take Hunt down and ground-and-pound him into oblivion. I’m taking the latter.
