MonkeyPicks: You know how we do it.  5 picks.  Never wrong.  Lets go.  

Reminder: The weekend starts on Thursday night this week – because momma said knock you out.


  1. MAIN EVENT – Gaethje, because when Tony ordered his wins he asked for a Dozen in a row and not Baker’s Dozen (semi pro move).  So he is out of wins.  The extra three weeks gave Gaethje the preparation he needed if you care about facts and stuff.
  2. Cerrone vs. Pettis – Cerone,  because he wants back into Dan Bilzerian’s parties.  I mean who doesn’t.  Time to Cowboy UP.
  3. Carla vs. Michelle – Carla, because in isolation I’ve eaten a lot of cookies.  So I’m going with the Cookie Monster.  There is all that other stuff like stats and wins…who cares.  GIVE ME COOKIES.
  4. Hardy vs. Castro – Castro, tough choice because I love my Dallas Cowboys. And, to be clear HARDY is a beast and I think it will be close (kissing up in case I run into him).  I think Castro is going to come in more prepared and is able to handle the distractions and delay better so forth and so on…  
  5. Mitchell vs. Rosa – Mitchell, social media pressure.  I just want people to like me.

Tip for the Week –   Remember online betting is the same as betting live just without the hookers acting like they really like you for who you are.  Go online…less drama.
