Welcome fight Enthusiasts to the second to last UFC fight card of 2017.
We’re tickled to see time tick away on ’17 as we have a distaste for the flavor of fanciful Favorites as Fav’s are firing at a 66.4% clip this past year running a breezy 281-119-23. The numbers speak for themselves, and those chalk results reinforce to us that we must remain selective and hone in on fighters we feel are prepared to offer their best effort on fight night. In tonight’s card, here are the mutts we find potentially mangy in Manitoba. We have five releases for tonight's card and they're avaialble for a modest fee. If we lay and egg all clients will get thier fee returned which is a policy we employ for all fight cards. 'Swing it Easy'

Dos Anjos -115 vs. Lawler +105
We released Lawler +110 yesterday soon after the weigh-ins. This is another line that has flipped with Lawler opening -155. We’re always learning in this racket and tonight we’ll surely learn something for we believe the flow of hay on RDA is misplaced. Lawler is the much larger man with advantage in power, experience, chin and all-day cardio. While RDA has looked magnificent in the Welterweight division since he moved up from 155 the fact remains that he’ll be giving away advantage in height and length (both legs and arms) against a competent striker with dynamic wrestling ability and take down defense.
Those feeling Robbie has lost his edge may be correct, but he has not shown that to be the case. In fact, we believe quite the opposite that RDA is made for Robbie and that he’ll come forward to press Lawler and smother him which is a plan of attack Lawler has defended in many prior victims. Lawler at plus money is a value
Ponzinibbio -165 vs. Perry +155
Potentially a pure punch fest between Ponzi and Perry here makes us all anticipate this one. Perry is regarded by we at GambLou World HQ as a barroom brawler that is learning the mixed martial arts game and for that reason we view him as a reasonable underdog in this spot. Ponzi has a more developed mixed martial arts arsenal in every category (except for pure power punching and the capacity of the chin) and he’ll surely embrace the plan laid out earlier by Alan Jouban when he painted Perry from distance and forced the brawler to eat loads of leather. Perry is tough and determined but must fight from inside the pocket to mask his lack of footwork and tactic. The cat and mouse in this match-up lies in whether Perry can get Ponzi to brawl while the Brazilian will need to use his legs and keep distance which will allow him to batter the bull on his way inside to brawl. We like Ponzi here as the more complete fighter, but we do recognize Perry’s potential power, so we must work to minimize exposure here. We see the winner of this fight stopping the opponent, so we’ll press down the price on Ponzi in this fashion
Ponzinibbio pts. Handicap -3.5 -120
Cirkunov -160 vs. Teixeira +150
We believed the original line set for this fight was correct with Glover -155 based on his experience, body of work, boxing ability and floor capability. Teixeira has been in wars and is 37 years of age, but we feel he is still a top five fighter in the division. Cirkunov is raw, overly hyped and in for a huge test tonight for he steps way up in class off a brutal early KO in his last outing. Cirkunov has mucho to prove to himself coming off that KO while Glover is aware that if he simply takes this kid down for a maul on the mat he can effectively drain him of his energy and then eventually paint him into submission via ground and pound, wrestling or striking. This fight will demonstrate that Cirkunov is not quite ready and Glover is not quite gone.
LaPrise -145 vs. Bofando +135
After Bofando’s last performance we chiseled a ‘fade’ in our memory bank moving forward into future match-ups based on his mediocre level of competition and the raw manner which he fought. While fast, athletic and powerful he is also raw and untested by firm competition. He steps up into at least firm competition when he tangles with LaPrise a Canadian fighter who is more experienced, more precise in striking and offers a solid ground game which in our view we will witness tonight. LaPrise will need to weather the furious onslaught that the banger Bofando will bring but once these two get into the meat of the fight we’ll see that the prey is Bofando.
Di Chirico -120 vs. Bamgbose +110
These fighters have underachieved to this point. Tonight, we feel it is Di Chirico whose hand get raised based on his more developed fight arsenal both offensively and defensively. Bamgbose has a four-minute window where he can inflict serious damage before he slows to a crawl and loses the slim amount of precision punching he possesses. Provided the taller, younger Italian kid can weather that early storm we feel he’ll eventually immerse the imposter with elbows and perhaps even finish Bamgbose. Bamgbose needs more time.
Di Chirico -120 (half)
