Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 156. “Aldo vs. Edgar” will air on FX (prelims) and pay-per-view (main card) Saturday night. The evening’s action will be headlined by a featherweight title fight. 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 593-370 (62% correct) record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Chicago.
