    Anyone think Mendes can win? Looking to bet on McGregor -175 right now.

    I'm very OK with taking Mendes +140, +145...

    Also, I am very OK with Almeida U1.5rds for +130.:ssst:

    I have McGregor by ko and also took Mendes to win it all. McGregor cuts too much weight so if he can't get it done in first couple of rounds, he's going to get subbed/ko'd in the late rounds. Atleast that's the way I see the fight going.

    Do Vegas books have props like McGregor by KO, etc?

    This is my first trip with a major UFC event going on so I can't wait either. Definitely going to the weigh-ins on Friday just to soak up the energy.

    They are usually at 5pm the day before the fight. Its a fun time, usually free, but I head they may start doing a $10 donation to charity or something.

    Weigh-ins are at MGM Garden Arena and start at 4pm. It's going to be mental, they're opening the whole arena for it... I've heard upwards of 10K people are going. Lotta irish ;)

    That was a crazy fight. The Lawler fight was also nuts. I took McGregor straight up at -195, McGregor RD4 10/1 and McGregor RD3 6/1. Missed round 3 by seconds. I thought McGregor was going to lose. Mendes had him on the ground for a while. Aldo vs. McGregor in Vegas next. Probably in that new hockey arena. The sports books didn't play the fight. I had to go to Diablo's at Monte Carlo and spent $25 to stand by a wall. Not ideal.

    The sports books never deal, they can't legally. UFC has all kinds of rules about the area it can be played in. We watched it at the Tilted Kilt, we learned a lot about McGregor that night, he has wicked stand up, but needs to work on his wrestling. What a fight!! He took some hits and still came thru!
