The fix is in. Kimbo vs Dada 5000 is a fixed fight and the bookies have spoiled all the fun. From ESPN’s Brett Okamoto:
Spoke to manager at LV Sportsbook in Vegas, betting line for Kimbo Slice moved from -360 to pick today. According to book manager, ‘three to four guys’ walked in and bet the limit about 20 times. ‘Just kept firing on the dog over and over.’ For a Bellator fight, LV Sportsbook has taken in ‘an unheard of amount of money’ according to the manager. Another round of bets on Dada5000 by same 3-4 individuals at LV Superbook takes the Slice line back to a pick-em right now. Wow.”
I’m sure those guys were all 250 black dudes with chains who never took off their sunglasses.
Lines don’t shift this dramatically for no reason – not hours before a fight. If ever there was gonna be a worked fight, it would be this stupid ass fucking garbage fight. Do I think Bellator is in on it? FUCK NO. (Though they share blame for even booking this thing.)
This seems like the exact kinda scam cooked up by two guys who are thugs. And I don’t mean thugs like the media usually does when they want to subtly be racist against black athletes: they’re out and out thugs. These are guys who became famous for having jacked up physiques and beating up idiots in backyards. You really think them getting together to make money off a dive is out of the question?
They aren’t even being subtle about it. Tonight is going to be such a fucking joke of epic proportions.
Update: rumor has it that the guys who dropped all the cash are from the porn site BANGBROS!!! I take back everything ever said: tonight is gonna be awesome.
