(Edited)

My previous record was:

Current ROI is negative: -19.76% (AWFUL)
MMA record keeping started on: Mar 2, 2019
Total units risked so far (always flat 1 unit): 41
Total units won or loss so far: -8.102 units
Current record and negative ROI: (22-18-1), -19.76% (AWFUL)

However, I forgot to update it with some previous picks I made

6 months ago:

Jack Hermansson (1.85) vs Kelvin Gastelum (2.02) (I chose Hermansson which was right)
Deiveson Figueiredo (1.46) vs Joseph Benavidez (2.85) (I chose Figueiredo which was right)

last month:

Ciryl Gane (1.24) vs Junior Dos Santos (4.25) (I chose Gane which was right)
Tony Ferguson (1.64) vs Charles Oliveira (2.35) (I chose Ferguson which was WRONG)
Deiveson Figueiredo (1.29) Brandon Moreno (3.70) (I chose Figueiredo which was a PUSH because the fight was a draw)

My new updated record is:

Current ROI is negative: -16.42% (AWFUL)
MMA record keeping started on: Mar 2, 2019
Total units risked so far (always flat 1 unit): 46
Total units won or loss so far: -7.552 units
Current record and negative ROI: (25-19-2), -16.42% (AWFUL)

My record is still bad but I don't really have a doubt that I will break even eventually. Where this false confidence comes from I don't know, lol...

=======================================================

I only have 2 picks for this Saturday's UFC (Jan 23, 2021)

Conor McGregor (1.345) vs Dustin Poirier (3.60)
MMA Props Fighting McGregor wins by TKO/KO (1.556) vs Any other result

I like Poirier. Excellent stand-up. Tough as nails. But... McGregor is his kryptonite. Poirier's specialty is striking which is bad for him because McGregor's the best MMA counter puncher in lightweight/featherweight history. Khabib managed to knock down McGregor but that's only because McGregor was constantly worried about Khabib's takedowns. He won't have that worry here. I think this fight ends up like the first fight. McGregor via TKO. Maybe secound round this time.

My picks are the McGregor moneyline at 1.345 odds and the McGregor wins by TKO/KO prop at 1.556 odds.

Nope. My record got worse. The opposite of what I expected happened. Poirier knocked out McGregor in the second round. The McGregor magic is gone.
