Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 110. “Nogueira vs. Velasquez” will air Saturday night via pay-per-view. This card features a main event between heavyweight MMA legend Big Nog and newcomer Cain Velasquez. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right?

With an overall 200-126 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I, Gray D., see the action inside the cage going down from Sydney, Australia.
