Welcome fight fans, to my picks and predictions for UFC 169. “Barao vs. Faber” will air Fox Sports 1 and Pay-Per-View Saturday evening. The card’s action will be headlined by bantamweights fighting for the 135 lbs title. 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 639-400 (62% correct) record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from New Jersey.
