Welcome fight fans, to my picks and predictions for UFC 177. “Dillashaw vs. Soto” will air on FOX Sports 1 (prelims) and Pay-Per-View (main card), Saturday evening (U.S.). The card’s action will be headlined by 135 lbs. champ T.J. defending his 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 693–414 (63% correct) record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Sacramento.
