Gambling ain’t what it used to be in the city of Portland. The dogs don’t run at the old Multnomah Greyhound Track anymore, so you’ll have to find somewhere else to get stabbed with a pocketknife. The Oregon lottery just doesn’t give you that sweet, out-of-control feeling you crave. Even the place where I used to go and watch the occasional cockfight has closed its doors. Thankfully, UFC 102 is coming down this weekend and bringing plenty of action with it. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Absolutely Don’t Bet Against: Mike Russow. The UFC knows what they have in this guy, which is why they’re giving him an easy one against McCully first. Gonna be a quick one.
