Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for Strikeforce. “Overeem vs. Werdum” will air Saturday night on Showtime, with two more fights continuing the heavyweight tournament. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right? Whether you agree or disagree, leave your thoughts by commenting.
As lead writer here, I do my best to make quality peeks into the future. That being said, anything can (and does) happen in mixed martial arts. With an overall 430-264 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Dallas.
