Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 141. “Lesnar vs. Overeem” will air via Facebook+Spike (prelims) and pay-per-view this Friday night. The evening’s action will be headlined by massive heavyweights Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem. 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 501-327 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Vegas.
