A Quick Breakdown of the Cocky Tattooed Fighter Getting Knocked Out at Nitro 11

Posted on March 5, 2015  in Writing

 

At an MMA event in Australia fighter Julian Rabaud acted like a douche during the weigh is and Ben Nguyen knocked him out in 25 seconds for his efforts.  Here’s a quick breakdown of the fight.

 

Right feint, left ready, Ben Nguyen sees the guard go up, shoves the left in there, follows it up a combo to make sure he can’t afford to put his guard down, right hook,  change it up, make your opponent frustrated and impatient.

 

Julian Rabaud (tattoo man) wants to look, he wants to peek, you don’t take six hits blind with nothing to show for it. Ben waits for the peek, and shoves another left in there, this time an uppercut, following with an opportune right hook to take advantage of the weakened guard as it moves inward, over compensating for the uppercut that was just received.

 

Tattoo man realizes his mistake, and solidifies his guard again.

 

Ben’s been building this guy up. Tattoo man hasn’t gotten a single SWING out, let alone a solid hit. Ben knows he’ll want to make a move soon, so he pauses, just for half a second. Where previously he had driven half a dozen punches in to make sure no room was given, he waits this time. Ben knows the timing perfectly. Tattoo dude takes the bait, there, the guard is dropping, right arm is swinging back, this is going to be big. Ben’s faster, he already sees how this will play out. Duck and weave, quick left disrupts the knock out hay-maker, veers it off course, and the motion he’s practiced thousands of times puts him under now-wild right. Julz hits air, can’t adjust his momentum, he’s vulnerable, he’s open! Boom, right hook straight into the jaw, lights out.  Julz regrets his decision of acting like a douche during a weigh in.

Machida is currently 13/2 (+650) to beat Weidman via KO/TKO.

Posted on May 27, 2014  in Uncategorized

Those are bad odds. I wouldn’t touch Machida by KO at +650 (13.3%). Maybe if it was +1500 or better.

Consider that Machida’s won 8 of his 21 victories by KO (38%), then consider his odds of winning as a whole. Even if you give Machida 33% odds of winning, that’s still only a 12.5% chance of winning via KO based on prior performance, meaning +650 is (roughly) the break-even if Machida has a one-third chance of winning and has a similar probability of winning via KO as he has vs. previous opponents.

Every match has it’s intricacies and stylistic matchups, but in order for this bet to be sound, you have to justify either:

  • Machida having a better chance to KO Weidman than his previous opponents OR
  • Machida having a very good (>33%) chance to win

Personally I don’t see either of those happening. I don’t think he has a better chance of KO-ing Weidman than he did his previous opponents, and I give him a ~25% chance of winning.
