Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC: “Fight Night 17”. The event will air Saturday evening via Spike TV (main card) beginning at 9 pm E.T. We’ll begin posting under card results around 7 pm E.T. FN17 includes a main event of Joe Lauzon fighting last minute replacement Jeremy Stephens (original opponent Franca tore ACL). 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. With an overall 34-27 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I, Gray D., see the action inside the Octagon going down on February 7.
Check back Saturday night for LIVE fight results!
