Saturday’s fight night was not a profitable night. We dropped a couple close decisions, lost on a couple of non-competitive fights and the only positive of the card was a play against a fighter missing weight by 3 pounds released via Twitter at weigh-ins. Let’s discuss a couple of things. We are active on twitter and release positions if the opportunity for advantage is in our favor or if we believe there is advantage to the move. When Gonzalez a fighter making his debut in the UFC tipped the scales three pounds overweight we released a position on Silva -145. The facts are that fighters missing weight have a 40% disadvantage in their bouts*. Lately we have been aggressive on fading fighters missing weight but remember Enthusiasts this is not an automatic. 40% disadvantage does not mean 100% fade so if you’re making these moves on your own please be wary. We only move if we feel there is advantage!
One guffaw we made was not following through on Yoel Romero as a dog in his fight with Lyoto Machida. As that fight got closer we had doubts regarding that fight and it ended up costing us bottom line. We learn daily in this business Enthusiasts whether we profit or not as our goal is to be excellent and self-improvement is a daily mandate.
The next UFC fight card takes place in Las Vegas which is UFC 189. We’ll be in Las Vegas for the weekend networking and meeting with the fighters, writers and contacts we have met over the last several years covering the UFC. The UFC community overall is a super group of individuals and we are proud to have made so many friends within the industry. We’ll have a full write up for UFC 189 On July 11 and we’ll be poised for profit.
