Here are my picks for tomorrow’s fights, in order from my most confident pick to my least confident:
This is my attempt to convey how strongly I feel about each particular fight. I’ll be absolutely shocked if either Daniel Cormier or Ronda Rousey loses, while it won’t surprise me at all if T.J. Waldburger or Josh Sampo score an upset.
I’m also picking all chalk, which is a rarity for me. Usually I end up picking at least one underdog but that’s not the case this time. Don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll be back to making ill-advised upset picks very soon.
Last Event Picks: 9-3 (75%)

DEGENERATE GAMBLER’S CORNER
So apparently I never actually placed a bet on Gegard Mousasi. Last time, I said I placed bets on Mousasi ($1.00 to win $1.95) and Nicholas Musoke ($1.00 to win $1.10). Mousasi lost to Lyoto Machida by unanimous decision while Musoke defeated Viscardi Andrade, also by unanimous decision, so I should have made a profit of a whole ten cents. That would have put my bankroll at $50.68 but instead my bankroll was listed as $51.68. I’m going to go with the bankroll I actually have to avoid confusing myself; if you want to know where I should be based on the bets I’ve publicized on this blog, then just subtract a dollar from whatever I have.

Best of luck and enjoy the fights!
