You act as if Barboza would be even close to even money vs Holloway. Barboza definitely had his moments. Going into the 3rd I did not feel good about my wager and was shocked Giga was the one showing signs of fatigue before Edson who is known to have his cardio struggles. Outstriking him is impressive but lets not act like Edson is even top 5 in a stacked 145lb division.I think Chikadze at this point is better than Holloway. His striking is elite. He punches and kicks right through people. Now that he's gained experience he'd be a tough out for anyone in the division.
-200 seems a little much given it was probably 1-1. Assuming most of the pricing adjustment was based on Chikadze slowingI was watching the live price for the Chikadze-Barbosa fight.
After round one, Chikadze -200.
After round two, Barbosa -200.
Did Barbosa dominate the second round enough to justify the price swing?
Commentators did reference Chikadze's tempo slowed in the second round.
