I once again continued a ridiculous streak, as Tim Means absolutely dominated promotional newcomer Sabbah Homasi. It wasnt even fair! My upset pick Glover Teixeira got KO’d in 13 seconds, so let’s not talk about it. 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: 15 (Lock of the Day) + 8 (Upset of the Day) = 23
Lock of the Day: Chad Laprise
Note: Laprise has so much talent and more tools to win this bout. And despite Gouti dropping two straight, that makes him even more dangerous. Anyways, I’m confident Laprise will walk away the victor!
Upset of the Day: Jim Miller
Note: Now, I think Lauzon has a better shot at winning the fight this time around, but Miller’s wrestling here is key. If he can smother Lauzon again, which could very well happen – then this id the bag. However Miller’s on his last legs with tons of miles – so we’ll see.
