I have to admit I’m not used to this new world we’re living in. When I was asked to do a preview of the UFC fight card this Saturday night, I thought editor McKee had gone crazy (crazier?) – everyone knows that UFC 249 got cancelled, just like every other sporting event in the world.
Then he clued me in – it’s simulated fights that are going down on Saturday, run by MyBookie and – no surprise – you can bet on them. And it’s not UFC 249 – it’s UFC $49.
Here’s the scoop from My Bookie.
While the full fight card hasn’t been announced yet, we do know at least that Andrade and Namajunas will be having their much anticipated rematch (well, at least a virtual rematch).
In their first encounter at UFC 237 last May, former champ Namajunas looked perhaps the best she has ever looked in a fight. The thought going in was that Andrade would have the strength on the feet (as well as the physical strength edge), but that wasn’t the case as the champ Namajunas was lighting her up.
That is, for the first seven minutes or so of the fight, before she got herself knocked out via a vicious slam. This can truly be chalked up as a tactical mistake on her behalf, which her virtual self probably won’t allow to happen. Go with virtual Thug Rose in this one.
