Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 112. “Invincible” will air Saturday night via pay-per-view (U.S.) beginning at 1 and 10 p.m. EST (under card at 7:30/10:30). This card features a main event between dominant champ Silva and elite BJJ player Maia. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right? Whether you agree or disagree, leave your thoughts by commenting.
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.
