UFC on FX 5 will take place from the Target Center with the main card bouts airing live on FX at 8PM ET. All picks are made from odds according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.

UFC Heavyweight Bout – Travis Browne (13-0-1) vs. Antonio Silva (16-4)

This fight is intriguing as each man seems to have a clear edge over the other in one area of MMA. Browne has the speed and quickness, as well as the striking edge. Silva is more of a mauler and does a good job with his grappling and submission fighting. Cardio could be an issue for both fighters as well, but probably more for Browne, who could be forced to carry Silva’s big frame throughout the fight. If the fight ends quickly, it should go to Browne. If it goes the distance, look for Silva to win. I am going to go with an upset here as I don’t see Browne getting the knockout. UFC FREE PICK – Antonio Silva +185

UFC Welterweight Bout – Jake Ellenberger (27-6) vs. Jay Hieron (23-5)

This fight should have plenty of fireworks, as Ellenberger is an explosive fighter that looks to start fast. Hieron is a good striker as well, but I don’t see him having the power to compete with Ellenberger. I also see him coming out timid, as this is his first fight in the UFC in a while. Look for Ellenberger to get the TKO victory in the first. UFC FREE PICK – Jake Ellenberger -365
