While we were aware of the tremendous work ethic Jaime Varner brought into his training camp for his farewell fight (we did not know it was going to be his last fight) we were also aware upon our first glance at the fighter that Varner broke his right big toe five/six weeks prior to this fight. When we first saw him train 3 weeks out from the fight he was limping noticeably. He was unable to really utilize his back foot (Varner is a conventional right handed fighter) for any power not to mention how important one’s feet are when wrestling/grappling. We did discuss that taking this young bull (Dober) to the mat would be a sound tactic for Varner but it soon became quite clear to us that Varner’s plan was to go in and stand with Dober in an attempt to take the kid out….and early. There was going to be no grappling or mauling on the mat with that toe issue!
Two weeks out from the fight Varner was doing a better job of hiding the injury but for a guy that prides himself on being well rounded it became clear to us that with a recently broken left ankle (his last fight)….and now a busted right big toe that there was enough evidence for us to question why he would forge forward with such an injury. This was about the only question we did not ask Jaime as we attended his training sessions for we did not feel we could question that as we were there to observe and learn.
We realize how important it is for a fighter to be healthy when a fight night rolls around. We understand also that few fighters when training properly will actually enter the octagon 110% healthy! We have much respect for the warrior Jaime Varner and the way he forged forward in this situation rather than take the easy way out. Our respect for Varner is comprehensive.
We did agree not to write about this big toe issue when I told Jaime what I did and why I was attending his camp. Honor is an important thing Enthusiasts and one either has it or does not. We could never have broken our promise to him and mention this situation yet we felt a responsibility to Profitable Sports Gaming to be able to convert our information into profit. Taking this fight not to last the full 3 rounds was like stealing with the information we had…..we just could not rant about the angle because we were unable to express why until today in order to honor our word to Varner.
The UFC fight game is a tricky wager Enthusiasts….make sure you are doing your Due Diligence eh? I can tell you we will approach these fights more diligently ourselves as we move forward in our UFC gaming career.
So in 2014 we own a 64-63 UFC result for a NET PROFIT of +$3,853.00. At $100 per play that’s pretty damn acceptable for we here at GambLou.com World HQ.
In the NFL Sunday we went 2-1. Since week 11 when we took a week off we are 11-2 in the NFL. It does not hurt to take a week off in order to reset the gyroscope Enthusiasts. It’s worked for us before and it worked this year based on recent results.
NFL 2014: 40-30 +700.00
(based on the standard 100 per position discussed here ad nauseum)
