UFC Fight Night 96 – October 1, 2016 – Post-Fight Summary

Overall ended the night down $535 or ~25%, losing ~8% of my bankroll on the night. Largest detractor was $700 lost on John Dodson’s split decision loss. I thought Dodson won, landing the bigger shots, far more accurate, out-striking Lineker in every single round & getting the only take-down of the fight, but oh well… part of this game and reminder of partial reasoning of why it makes sense to favour the dog in many circumstances.

Blind underdog strategy would have driven a 97% return on the night, largest potential gain for this approach since UFC 196. I’m picking only a few fights per card to overweight, so it’s no surprise my results are much different. Since starting The Open Roll I’ve outperformed this strategy (withing a reasonable range of per fight weightings) and last nights results don’t change this.

Overall, no big takeaways from my perspective. I think I’ll have more time for next weekends card, which will be a nice change.
