UFC on Fuel TV Free Picks
OMAHA, NE – UFC on Fuel TV takes place on Wednesday night and features a number of competitive bouts. Here are some picks to consider for the night.
UFC on Fuel TV will have its main card air live on Fuel TV at 8PM ET. The bouts will be held in the Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha. Preliminary bouts air live on Facebook starting at 6PM ET.
This fight should be explosive as Sanchez tends to leave it all in the cage and he can take quite a beating. Ellenberger is for technical with his striking and he packs a powerful punch. In this fight, Ellenberger will need to be able to keep pace with Sanchez, but Sanchez can’t make the mistake of slugging it out with Ellenberger. I see Ellenberger eventually being able to land the power blow and finishing off Sanchez in the second round. FREE PICK – Jake Ellenberger -345
This fight features a contrast of styles with Herman, the striker, taking on Struve, the submission specialist. Struve has struggled to really beat the top level of talent in the UFC and I see Herman being able to control this fight with his striking and finishing off Struve in the second round with a flurry of fists. FREE PICK – Dave Herman -150
This fight should be very competitive with both men being able to strike and grapple. The difference in this one should be the experience of Simpson, as he has faced much tougher competition in his career. I see him being able to do enough to dictate the fight. Markes will have some good moments, but I look for Simpson to pick up a decision victory. FREE PICK – Aaron Simpson -130
