UFC Live 5 places from the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The main card airs live on Versus at 9PM ET. Here are three picks to consider for tonight’s card.

UFC Welterweight Bout – Dan Hardy (23-9) vs. Chris Lytle (30-18-5)

This main event should be a very entertaining bout. Both men are scrappers that like to slug it out, but when you have to good strikers, the fight tends to come down to grappling. Lytle has the clear grappling edge in this contest. Hardy has lost two of his last three fights due to a lack of wrestling ability and been taken down by much worse grapplers than Lylte. Look for Lytle to win this fight by decision. FREE PICK – Chris Lytle +100

UFC Lightweight Bout - Jim Miller (20-2) Ben Henderson (13-2)

This is a contest of two of the top lightweights in the UFC. Miller has the potential to secure a title fight with a win. He has been on a role over the past few years. He has been able to out-grapple all of his opponents. Henderson is an accomplished wrestler and submission fighter as well. As good as Henderson is, I think Miller is just a little bit better. I look for this fight to be very close, but my pick is with Miller by decision. FREE PICK – Jim Miller -170

UFC Lightweight Bout – Charles Oliveira (14-1) vs. Donald Cerrone (15-3)

This should be another exciting lightweight clash. Both men have good submission skills but Cerrone has the better striking. Oliveira may think he can strike, but he can’t, and that tends to be a losing formula for a fighter. Cerrone should be able to pick Oliveria apart on their feet and stay out of any submissions in order to get a decision victory. FREE PICK – Donald Cerrone +110
