Amir just proved, again, that he is the most overrated fighter in the UFC.

How he was such a heavy favorite against Ludwig is beyond me (-400, I believe). Vegas bookies still don't know **** about MMA.

I missed out on making a LOT of money on the expense of Amir again. FML. FML. F. M. L. I ended up making a few hundred on the Stun Gun fight. Really should have bet on this fight, but I was in the prices of a move and completely forgot.

I like Amir as a person, making him a likable fighter, but that doesn't necessarily make him a good fighter. I don't think he belongs or deserves to be fighting those top 10 guys.

I was really shocked seeing how many people picked Amir. I thought the fight was going to be a very, very easy win for Ludwig. Amir is a bit tricky on the ground, but his takedowns are below average and Ludwig is on another planet when it comes to striking. Amir's only chance was BANG gassing out (which happens). But Amir gassed, as well.

I don't think Amir is overrated by people in general, but he'll just always be overrated in betting lines because of his name recognition.

I picked Amir anyway since it felt like a pick-em. Neither guy is that great, no top ten potential either way IMO. Wouldn't suprise me to see Amir drop a weight class.

Because Vegas is ********. They had Amir as a HEAVY favorite against Stun Gun (like I said, I made a lot of money off of that ******** line). Thought Ludwig should have been a pretty heavy favorite here (or at least a moderate one -- around -200 or so at the minimum). Nice job with the $$$, though. How much did you end up winning? Like $100 or something like that?

This speech would be more impressive if it was posted before the fight.

That's my point. Everyone remembers him from TUF, so he's favored on the lines on people who should be favored over him. But most experts out there also picked Amir, for some reason. I just never bought into his hype.

I had Amir. I thought he could get it to the ground and finish it from there.
I know his takedowns suck but I didn't think Ludwig's TDD would be that good.

Nice, man. I think the odds ended up around +275. Not sure, but that was what I just saw a second ago from searching. I think I got Stun Gun at like +250 or something. The odds swung a bit slightly, but enough that I put down even more money on Stun Gun when it was like +150 or 175.

It was a close call for me. The line was way out of whack. I thought Amir could get it to the ground and submit Ludwig, who isnt very good on the ground.

Kudos to you all the same.

Atta boy Cowboy. Worked him with ease. YES!!!!!

Oliveira is gonna be good one but he's young with a lot to learn and as Joe said he belongs at 145.

Perhaps another hype train ending? Still young and not ready for the big guns.
