UFC 169 will take place from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET. All odds are according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.

UFC BANTAMWEIGHT BOUT - Renan Barao (31-1) vs. Urijah Faber (30-6)

Barao owns a solid win over Faber already and the challenger is taking this bout on short notice after fighting just a few months ago. Barao seems too skilled for what Faber brings to the table. Everything that Faber tends to use to his advantage appears to be an edge for Barao in this fight. Faber just doesn’t seem to be in the right spot to win his first UFC title on Saturday. UFC 169 FREE PICK – Renan Baro -280

UFC HEAVYWEIGHT BOUTFrank Mir (16-8) vs. Alistair Overeem (36-13)

Overeem should be able to win this fight with a KO. Mir has struggled in his career with big, powerful strikers. Mir is a great ground fighter, but he doesn’t have the wrestling to get these strong opponents to the ground. Look for Overeem to keep the fight standing and pepper Mir with some big punches to lead to a KO victory. UFC 169 FREE PICK – Alistair Overeem -325

UFC LIGHTWEIGHT BOUTJamie Varner (21-8-1) vs. Abel Trujillo (11-5)

Varner may be the experienced fighter of the two, but Trujillo has had some impressive performances in his short time in the UFC. He is well-rounded and dynamic and his energy should overwhelm Varner as the fight goes on. Varner is nearing the end of his career and is someone that starts fast, but ends slow. Look for that to be his downfall as Trujillo gets the minor upset. UFC 169 FREE PICK – Abel Trujillo +125
