Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC on FX 8. “Rockhold vs. Belfort” will air on Facebook+Fuel (prelims) and FX (main card) Saturday night. The evening’s action will be headlined by a middleweight contender battle. 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 606–390 (61% correct) record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Brazil.
