There's free money available by backing Myles Jury @ 1.25 
Very often the UFC will throw in a sacrificial lamb to give a fighter a W. That's what they are doing with Jury giving him De La Torre.
De La Torre didn't look like he wanted to be there at the weigh-in. Jury is a solid fighter albeit he's had 2 Ls in a row. This should be straightforward.

I also like Weidman to beat Mousasi @ 2.08
better wrestler, more experienced. Mousasi is a very good fighter but has a limited game compared to Weidman who's been in title fights. Weidman looked up for it at weigh-ins, meanwhile Mousasi looked his usual casual self. Mousasi is a vg fighter but I give the edge to the All-American.

I see some value in Rosa over Burgos but it's small stakes material as I've not seen Rosa fight. All I know is he took Yair Rodriguez to a split decision who is a very good fighter and he looked pretty good at weigh-ins. Burgos also looked up for it. Both men were chatting at each other so it could be a good fight.
Rosa @ 3.00

I also think Cormier has the advantage over Rumble. Rumble has got KO power but Cormier beat him before and is a better wrestler and has good stand up. Cormier also dominated the face-off at weigh-ins and I think Rumble knows he's up against a better fighter.

boring picks but there you go

Cormer is 2.18
it's always worth looking to take the underdogs in UFC as they often win

ok so I called the Rosa fight badly wrong. Burgos beat him quite easily

WOOW I was counting my money on Weidman there. TKO from a Legal knee after much confusion. Mousasi wins.

Didn't see it live but seen the footage now. DC fight very strange. Rumble game plan was very odd. Was always going to end up the way it did. Four losses on the spin now for Weidmann. Will be very concerning for him.

I legitimately think rumble would of won that fight if he didn't try to grapple DC, i think it's a mental weakness that was expose makes me wonder how much time rumble spent training jiu jitsu and being on the bottom, he smashed DC's face when he did strike but I was impressed with how DC weathered the storm, he's very underrated at this point in his career, I think he could beat jones when he returns, ring rust could give DC the edge there, balances out the age discrepancy a little at least.

moose fight was great while it lasted, the grappling exchanges were great to watch, and moose did an excellent job standing up from all those takedowns and gassing weidman out. weidman looked a fair size bigger and stronger too, and landed some great punches of his own, but once moose opened up with his jab, and that big flurry weidman knew he had his work cut out.

as for knee gate I haven't rewatched it yet, but I think at least one knee was illegal, it's just in the angles I saw it's hard to determine the moment when the knee makes contact with weidmans face, his fingers did leave the canvas but im not 100% sure it was before the knee landed. don't really care anyway, weidman was stupid to play that game considering the rule change. yet another questionable fight IQ choice from him along with the kick he threw that shortened his life by years.
