Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 136. “Edgar vs. Maynard 3” will air via pay-per-view on Saturday night. The evening’s action will be headlined by lightweight champ Frankie Edgar facing off for a third time against GRay Maynard. 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 485-317 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Houston.
