    IDK, Archuleta has looked good but against way inferior competition. I mean, for sure I favor him. Maybe -300 or -350ish. But -700? No way. I'll risk a tiny amount on Peralta +500 here, thanks.

    This Letourneau fight is interesting. On paper Valerie has a clear path to win, but what Kristina Williams has done, especially to an underrated (and yet undersized) fighter like Emily Ducote is damn impressive. If Valerie takes a couple good punches, will she freeze up like she did against Pereira? Dunno.

    I bet Williams in her last fight at nice dog odds and cashed, and the thing that stood out most was how freaking calm she looked. She was literally like Fedor in how she just looked like she was out for a leisurely walk and not in a cage fight.

    That said, Val should have a serious grappling edge here. If she can force grappling exchanges, she should win (and possibly finish via sub). If she can't...Williams has a good shot to win a decision imo.

    Yeah, that number is nutso. Granted, Archuleta should destroy this man - on top of his athleticism edge, he fights smart. His competition level is also pretty solid for what it is. Yeah, a lot of Gladiator Challenge, but Juan's beaten some solid guys along the way, namely Mark Dickman and Jordan Griffin.

    Yeah I didn't mean it's been all cans, but Peralta is probably better than any of those guys and...he's +500. If he was +280 or something...no way.

    I missed most of the Archuleta fight, but what I saw was, he was aggro as fuck and showed some good wrestling and striking skills.

    I guess he is legit, but has only fought bums. Essentially taking the Mexican boxing approach, which I respect.

    R1: Letourneau 10-9 (Williams could've won the round if she got into Valerie's guard after tripping her)

    Speed edge for Val is significant. Somewhat neutralized by the length of Williams, but not totally.

    Always back the dog in wMMA. Thankfully Letournau is fighting with a typical wMMA fight IQ and will lose a decision. She doesn't have the IQ to take it to the ground.

    Rd 2 flip a coin. Both had their moments. Maybe a VERY slight lean to Williams? IDK...
