Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 125. “Resolution” will air Saturday night on Ion TV and pay-per-view. The fight card will be headlined by lightweight champ Frankie Edgar taking on Gray Maynard. 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 352-226 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Las Vegas.
