UFC on Versus 6 Picks
WASHINGTON, DC (TheSpread) – UFC On Versus 6 will take place this Saturday night and we have a few free picks to consider for this card.
UFC On Versus 6 places from the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.. The main card airs live on Versus at 9PM ET. Here are three picks to consider for tonight’s card.
Cruz is the long-reigning bantamweight champion and I see him being able to win this fight with some ease. He has the advantage on feet and in the grappling. Johnson is a small and squatty fighter, and I see that being a disadvantage for him when tries to use his grappling against the taller Cruz. I see Cruz using his striking and wrestling combination to win a decision. FREE PICK – Dominick Cruz -435
This fight features a major height and reach difference as Struve stands 6-11 and Barry is 5-11. Still, the shorter Barry has the striking edge in this one. He has tremendous power in his leg kicks and knockout power in his fists. Struve will have to get the fight to the ground to win, and I don’t see that happening as his frail frame keeps him being able to take guys down. Look for Barry to win this fight by TKO in round two. FREE PICK – Pat Barry -200
Johnson has big-time power in his hands and is an explosive striker, but he struggles against superior grapplers, which Brenneman is. All the underdog, Brenneman, has to do is avoid the big power from Johnson early, and he should be able to control this fight on the ground. Look for Brenneman to score takedowns and keep Johnson on his back in order to get a decision victory. FREE PICK – Charlie Brenneman +160
