Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC on FUEL 7. “Barao vs. McDonald” will air on Facebook (prelims) and Fuel TV (main card) Saturday afternoon (US E.T.). The evening’s action will be headlined by a title fight for the interim 145 lbs. 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 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 the UK.
