Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 100. The biggest event in MMA history will air Saturday night via pay-per-view (in the US) beginning at 10 p.m. EST. This weekend’s UFC event features both the heavyweight and welterweight belts on the line as well as top middleweight contenders vying for a title shot. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right? Whether you agree or disagree, leave your thoughts by commenting.
