This week has been a great one for MMA fans as we witnessed a great card and great battles at UFC Fight Night Live 19. Following the program we were treated to the latest installment of The Ultimate Fighter, with legendary internet sensation Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson. The week is not yet over as we have UFC 103 ‘Franklin vs. Belfort’ live from Dallas in the great state of Texas. Franklin will face against the returning ‘Phenom’ Vitor Belfort in tonights main event. Also returning to the octagon is contending middle weight fighter Frank ‘Twinkle Toes’ Trigg taking on the talented Josh Koshcheck. And finally, tonight we will see the long awaited return of Mirko Filipovic, known to fans simply as CroCop.

After recent dismal showings for my picks I was able to kick it up a notch during UFC Fight Night Live 19 and came away with 8-1 as my prediction. I’m currently at at 68-55 which isnt too great but after tonight I’ll be doing even better.

Update: 8-5 outcome
