forest griffinWelcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC: “Rio”. Silva vs. Okami will air Saturday via Facebook, Spike, and Pay-Per-View. Headlining this fight card will be middleweight champ Anderson Silva attempting to defend his belt against Yushin Okami. 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 458-296 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Brazil.
