Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 145. “Jones vs. Evans” will air via FX and pay-per-view on Saturday night. The evening’s action will be headlined by sworn enemies Jon “Bones” Jones and “Suga” Rashad Evans. 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 533-345 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Georgia.
