fedor prideWelcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for Strikeforce. “Fedor vs. Silva” will air Saturday night via Showtime. The fight card will be headlined by MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko going up against Bigfoot Silva as part of the heavyweight tourney opening round. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right? Whether you agree or disagree, leave your thoughts by commenting.

As lead writer here, seems there’s a certain responsibility for making quality peeks into the future. That being said, anything can (and does) happen in mixed martial arts. With an overall 369-235 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from New Jersey.
