This card features a heavyweight clash between former champs Frank Mir and Mirko “Cro Cop”. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right?

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.
