4. The Unpredictability Of MMA
Who would have thought that three champions would be dethroned in one night? Especially Jędrzejczyk and Garbrandt, who had an iron grip on their respective weight classes.
UFC 217 is one of those painful reminders that nothing is a given in this sport and that a sizable betting favorite is not a seal of guarantee for victory.
For those who bet on UFC 217, unless you had a parlay with Namajunas, Dillashaw, and GSP winning, you probably would have lost a lot of cash.
Nothing is sacred or constant in MMA. Just when we’ve gotten comfortable with a particular champion, an event like UFC 217 comes along and shatters that fragile comfortability.
