UFC 191 Betting Predictions

UFC 191 Betting Predictions

UFC 191 is going down on Labor Day Weekend and it is going to be a fun card. Personally I am a fan of the little guys and this event is headlined by the two best in the flyweight division. Then you back that up with a surprisingly great heavyweight fight, and what should be a knockout finish in light heavyweight and you have a good night of fights. Let’s get on to the predictions.

Chris Vettel – Running Should Be Fun

Chris Vettel – Running Should Be Fun

One of the best things about running is the community that runners feel as a whole. I know that I personally love this classification, runner, and that it has inspired other people I know to lace up their shoes and go for a run. What is amazing to me about the sport is that it doesn’t discriminate at all, and no matter what your age, you can start today.

Ultimate Fight Night 74 Predictions

Ultimate Fight Night 74 Predictions

Ok we are back at it again with UFN 74. Before we get into our pick for this card, we are going to take a quick look at how we did on the last card. At UFN 73 I suggested betting big on Uriah Hall even though he was a big favorite to win. The bet was risk $300 to win $80 and and it paid. As for Draft Kings, well that didn’t go so well due to a couple of upsets and a split decision loss on my end. Onto the betting advice.

Nailing A Training Workout

Nailing A Training Workout

Lately I have been feeling a bit of a funk when it comes to my training.  It could be a bit of burn out, it could be a bit of the summer time heat and how that affects the training, it could be because I have my next race in less than three weeks and mentally I’m building in an excuse for under performing without even realizing I’m sabotaging myself.  Whatever the issue is, it has left training to not be so much fun.
