Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions forUFC 152. “Jones vs. Belfort” will air via FX (prelims) and pay-per-view (main card) Saturday night. The evening’s action will be headlined by a rematch between now-hated Jon Jones against legend Vitor Belfort, for the LHW strap. 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 559-348 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Canada.
