    We actually agree on few things I picked Lara yesterday and thought he was a bit unlucky not to get the nod. I'll get back to you on Askren who I think does match up pretty well with both those guys especially against Covington and Usman is a bit better then I thought.

    I'm not a fan of how any of them fight and can see some boring fights coming up if Askren did come into the title mix,I think it's just a shame Wonderboy didn't get the decisions he deserved against Woodley but I'd love to see someone like Ponzinibio or even Masvidal come thru and win the title

    I thought wonderboy beat Woodley twice and clearly beat till.
    I think till if off his rocks thinking past masvidal and talking stuff to askren.
    I will say I am a lil bias toward masvidal because I know him personally but I think other then lawler, masvidal has the best chance of beating askren. I think it was an absolutes stupid move matching masvidal with till if what the ufc wants was till askren in England. That would be the big money matchup. To me till is big and has a good straight left hand but very average otherwise. If Masvidal is right they are gonna have to rob him.
    Till is an easy match for askren anyway.
    Those guys in the forum that thought castano won musta been wasted or super high. The guy punched a lot of glove and did nothing in the middle rounds. They rushed him. He needed to use his jab and work the body more. I think Lara’s body work slowed dow castano and enabled him to win that fight.

    Woodley and Lara both failed to win.

    I had
    Askren, magosharipov 2300 to win 2000
    Askren, magosharipov, Walker, 500to win 1000
    Askren, magosharipov, Lara 500 to win 700
    Pushed on lara won about 300

    Lost a 5 fight parlay with Woodley for 500

    No big deal
    Win some you lose some

    A very tiny minority scored for Lara.

    A lot of people get swayed by the announcers that gushed everytime the guy threw a flurry to gloves.
    Watched the fight 5 x
    I got 7-5 Lara giving anything near close to castano. He slowed down in the mid rounds from Lara’s body attack. The guy was young and still green. Prob should have 2-3 more fights then have the rematch. He was lucky to get a draw.

    I'll stick with the majority opinion over yours.
