UFC ON FX 1 will have its main card air live on FX at 9PM ET. Here are three picks to consider for tonight’s card.

UFC Lightweight Bout – Jim Miller (20-3) vs. Melvin Guillard (29-9-2)

This main event contest has two of the top lightweights in the world. Guillard is an explosive striker that likes to end fights quickly and he can do so with his feet and hands. Where he struggles is on the ground against submission fighters. Miller’s strengths are wrestling and he has a solid submission game, as 11 of his 20 wins are by submission. In this fight, I see Miller surviving the early storm from Guillard and eventually getting him down and submitting him with a choke in the second round. FREE PICK – Jim Miller -180

UFC Heavyweight Bout – Christian Morecraft (7-2) vs. Pat Barry (6-4)

Pat Barry seems to be the kind of fighter that should have a lot of success, but he keeps finding ways to lose. A great kickboxer, Barry has the ability to finish Morecraft, but I see the bigger Morecraft being able to win the grappling battle in this one. Both guys struggle with conditioning, so this fight could get sloppy if it goes into the late rounds, but I see Morecraft winning by third round TKO with his grappling. FREE PICK – Christian Morecraft +135

UFC Welterweight Bout – Duane Ludwig (21-11) vs. Josh Neer (32-10-1)

Both of these guys are veterans to the UFC, with Neer currently riding a 5-fight win streak. Ludwig has won his last two fights and he holds some powerful hands, as he has a 4-second knockout to his credit. Neer is a well-rounded fighter that just lets the fight play out. He likes to swarm opponents by staying in their face, but in this fight, I think that will hurt his chances to win. Ludwig should be able to land his strikes and avoid any big punches from Neer. I see this one going the distance, with Ludwig getting the win with superior striking. FREE PICK – Duane Ludwig -130
