  1. I’m already sick of Askren. I hope Masvidal puts him out – for good.

  3. sorry, i mean 62% to lose. midpoint suggest Masvidal is 38% to win, allowing you to buy 45% from vegas bookmaker. I’d sell there too if i were a bookmaker

    • That’s true a very generous midpoint from the bookmakers here. We expect these opening lines to change dramatically as the fight approaches.
