Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks for UFC Fight Night 18. “Condit vs. Kampmann” will air Wednesday evening via Spike TV, beginning at 8 p.m. EST.

The event includes a main event with contender implications as former WEC welterweight champ Carlos Condit takes on hard-hitting Martin “Hitman” Kampmann. 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.
