It's called a prediction. A website isn't bs because it gets a prediction wrong. With that being said this website hasn't updated its numbers in a few years
Lol, 90% chance Cruz would win; yeah right. Well now we know this website is BS. Cody dominated Dominick Cruz tonight and is the new champ now.
