Picking Fight of the Night?!
This is easy!
Give me Rothwell and Tybura for 50 units!
And for the life of me, I don’t know how this fight isn’t the least likely to win such honors.
That particular honor goes to Cortez vs Edgar and Silva vs Ulanbekov.
I don’t think either of those fights will be amazing but the Egger vs Cortez show could at least be back and forth.
We need a fight that doesn’t end in the first round.
We need one that isn’t dominated by one fighter.
Kelley vs Al Qaisi is a solid candidate.

I’m not sweating the main event.
There is a main event bias that should be noted for Fight of the Night.
This is normally when it’s a title fight and/or pay per view, though.
I think Morales and Kasanganay might push for the takedown if things get too Fight of the Night-ish on the feet.
The other bangers could end early on.
Give me the Moroccan Devil vs Ilian Topuria for (+800), Alex.
I like Topuria as an underdog pick here as well but I didn’t pull the trigger myself because, man, did we miss the boat!
Zalal opened at (-270) which is ludicrous even in a Mike Tyson voice.
This is more of a pick’em, in my opinion, with Topuria undefeated and dangerous everywhere.
Okay, I will take Ali Al Qaisi vs Tony Kelley.
These two get after it.
Tony put on a Fight of the Night level performance in his last outing.
His opponent this week, Al Qaisi, will be fighting close to his home country of Jordan.
You know he’s pumped for that.
This was the best staredown of the weigh-ins too, I think.
Al Qaisi looked Al-cuhrazy to me and Tony Kelley came out of it taken back.
I did just pick Tony Kelley but I will be honest, I didn’t like what I saw with the staredown.
I can definitely get too serious at times picking and betting these fights.
It is stressful knowing that others are relying on my work with their money.
That stress is motivation, though, and I rarely need it.
Get your bets in now and hopefully this experiment turns out to be fun.
We just can’t bet too much money on who wins Fight of the Night.
11 of the 13 fights we are hoping for boredom?
Let’s not back ourselves into that corner.
Throw a few beers worth of bucks on a couple of these fights and try to enjoy the whole show.
