UFC on Fuel TV 7 Picks
LONDON, England (The Spread) – UFC on FUEL TV 7 takes place on Saturday afternoon and features a championship bout. Here are a few picks to consider for this card.
UFC on FUEL TV 7 will take place from the Wembley Arena in London, England with the main card bouts airing live on Fuel TV at 3PM ET. All odds are according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.
Barao seems like an unstoppable force at 135 pounds right now, especially with Dominick Cruz injured right now. McDonald has big power in his hands, but I think Barao will be able to avoid the big punch and control the fight with his mix of strikes and grappling. I ultimately see McDonald tiring from the constant pressure by Barao, and the champion getting McDonald to the ground and choking him out in the fourth round.

This should be an outstanding contest. Both men push a fast pace and like to be the aggressor. The fighter that is able to be the aggressor likely will win. I think Poirier is the better all-around fighter. I like his crisp striking and submission ability. Swanson has some good power and grappling, but I think Poirier is a little quicker and sharper with his movement. I look for Poirier to do enough to pull out a decision. UFC on FUEL TV 7 FREE PICK – Dustin Poirier +105
