WEC tonight!

The WEC has a show coming up tonight (yes, for reals), which would be a lot more exciting if Paulo Filho was fighting rather than rehabing. But what can you do? At the very least, the WEC has a rep for high intensity action packed matches. So even if you don’t know who half the guys fighting are, you’ll still have a good time.

Since one of our main sources of revenue here is referrals to BetUS, I’d normally break down the WEC card for betting. But that would be irresponsible … well, even more irresponsible than my betting tips for UFC events and other cards I actually know a little about. I can’t bullshit – I don’t know 80% of the guys fighting tonight, and pretending I do wouldn’t really help anyone.

So here’s the deal: You can go to the MMA Analyst for his insight, or check out what the BloodyElbow guys think. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can pay attention to what Frank Trigg says (although that’s almost as bad as listening to me). But if you’re going to bet, you should do it through BetUS and tell em Fightlinker sent you. I’m running low on ramen noodles and not looking forward to eating cat food!

Here’s the BetUS odds on this show:

Sergio Gomez +180 vs Richard Crunkilton -240
John Alessio +220 vs Brock Larson -280
Ed Ratcliff +110 vs Marcus Hicks -140
Steve Cantwell +120 vs Tim McKenzie -150
Blas Avena +135 vs Hiromitsu Miura -165
Bryan Baker +300 vs Chael Sonnen -380
Doug Marshall +150 vs Brian Stann -180

Okay, maybe I do have some picks of my own. Doug Marshall looks pretty good as an underdog, I think Stann’s more hype than substance. Past that you’ve got reliable bets on guys like Brock Larson and Chael Sonnen (although the odds make betting on them kinda pointless – perhaps some parlay action?). Miura also didn’t look too bad taking Jason Mayhem Miller to a decision, so there’s a gut feeling choice on him. But again, I’m basing this shit on memory and not research.

    Thanks for updating the links dickweed! To show my appreciation I’m going to and spread a grand around the picks you made so we’ll see how it goes.

  • fightlinker

    Yeah sorry for the delay there, we’ve been hella behind. I literally have over 20 posts to write in order to catch up, so i think we’ll be a little behind on a lot of stuff till sunday. But I’ll try to keep the links as up to date as possible from now on

  • twankydawg

    it’s kool dawg, I gotta fuck with you a little bit when you slackin! Besides, I’m working and trying to catch stuff when I get a chance and the links are the easiest way for me to do that. hope you’re picks are good or I’ll be bitching about that tomorrow! LOL

    tsn isn’t showing this till saturday apparently, and im so retarded with this stupid “feist” endorsed robot i’m lucky if i can even type this let alone watch a stream. fuck off stupid rainbow spinning beachball!

    Alessio is by far the best betting odds on the card. He’s a decent pick against Larson since he has very good takedown defense and some decent wrestling himself with power to get the KO/TKO.

    Avena was one of the picks I had in my preview, but it’s a ballsy pick at best. Miura has had problems from fighters coming out with good power, and Avena does have that in his arsenal.

    Cat food is more expensive than Ramen Noodles. You need to take an economics class, man.

  • fightlinker

    Yeah but I have a big bag of cat food in the house already. Re: Alessio, I’d never bet against my boy Brock

    I placed my first mma bet and gave props to FL whlie signing up with BetUS. I’m going against the odds for the big bargain payoff: Baker over Sonnen. Crossing my fingers that the Republican funnyname gets his ass handed to him.
