Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 130. “Rampage vs. Hamill” will air Saturday night via Facebook, Spike TV (prelims) and Pay-Per-View, set to be headlined by two light heavyweights seeking title contention. 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 410-254 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Las Vegas.
