Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 129. “St-Pierre vs. Shields” will air Saturday night via Facebook, Spike (prelims) and pay-per-view. The event will be headlined by the current, reigning welterweight champ facing ground expert Jake Shields. 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 398-249 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Toronto.
