Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for WEC 53. “Henderson vs. Pettis” will air Thursday night on Versus. The fight card will be headlined by champ Ben Henderson taking on young, skilled Anthony Pettis. 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 346-221 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Glendale, Arizona.
