I like Poirier but that's a helluva close fight, as you've got two young and ever-evolving FWs who have contrasting tools, but I like Poirier's aggression and groudgame..
Taking a variety of Poirier/Tibau/Couture/Vera/Gaudinot/Krylov/Cedenblad. I've moved from Camus to Kang, but again that's a really fucking close bout. Putting some money down on Bendo, but I don't want that to be putting too much down on what might be a really close decision fight....All of the bets on these fights are smaller than usual and spread across several tickets, so not to bomb. I do $5 parlays with nice payouts, so I'm not too concerned, also since the Brazil card on Wednesday should have a bunch of gimmes.
My solid parlays involve Mendes/Benny/Tex/Jones/Barnett/Barao coupled with various fighters listed above.
Not touching Jacare/Okami outside of biting on Okami on a few riskier bets, because while I'm a massive Jacare fan, Okami is just such a tricky fighter.
Barnett has a good chin and solid cardio and striking, a suffocating clinch and superior grappling. I think Mir could get a TKO win, but I don't think he matches up too well against a very similar Barnett, whom I think is also much stronger.
