UFC 161 Free Picks
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (The Spread) – UFC 161 takes place tonight. Here is a look at a few picks to consider for this card.
UFC 161 will take place from the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET. All odds are according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.
This fight should be very interesting. I see Henderson starting out strong, but fading as the fight progresses. Evans has the better conditioning for a five-round fight, but he tends to fight tentative. I think Evans will pick up the pace once he survives the early storm from Henderson and earn a decision victory. UFC 161 FREE PICK – Rashad Evans -125
This fight should be pretty simple for Nelson, in my opinion. I don’t see Miocic having the strength and power to get him to the ground and Miocic certainly can’t contend with Nelson’s punching power. Once Nelson lands one of his big overhand punches, the fight will end soon after. UFC 161 FREE PICK – Roy Nelson -250
This fight will be a slugfest and likely end with a knockout of some sort. Barry is the more dynamic striker of the two, but Jordan can take a punch much better. Barry has struggled against powerful strikers, because he relies on his striking to win fights. Once Jordan is able to show he can take Barry’s best, I think he will open up his striking and finish Barry. UFC 161 FREE PICK – Shawn Jordan -105
