Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 108. “Evans vs. Silva” will air Saturday night via Pay-per-view (U.S.) beginning at 10:00 p.m. EST (under card at 7:30). This card features a main event between exciting light heavyweight contender seeking a rematch with champ Lyoto Machida. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right?

As a lead writer here, 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 188-118 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I, Gray D., see the action inside the cage going down from Vegas.
