UFC 168 Free Picks
LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – UFC 168 is set to take place on Saturday night. Here are a few picks to consider from this card.
UFC 168 will take place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET. All odds are according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.
Weidman shocked the world by knocking out Silva in the first meeting, but I think Silva beat himself more than Weidman did. Silva seemed to have the fight in his control, but he started to taunt and get careless, then got caught. This time, I think Silva will be focused on taking care of business. His punching power and accuracy is on a level nobody can compete with. Look for him to take out Weidman quickly in this rematch. UFC 168 FREE PICK – Anderson Silva -170
Rousey is the clear favorite, and for good reason. There isn’t much value in betting on her, but you really can’t bet on Tate either. Rousey is dominant in ground grappling, and Tate relies on her wrestling to win fights. That is basically playing right into Rousey’s hands. In order to beat Rousey, someone has to knock her out, and Tate isn’t going to be the one to do that. UFC 168 FREE PICK – Ronda Rousey -750
This fight is a battle of two good heavyweight contenders. Browne has the muay thai striking, while Barnett is a great grinder with a relentless pursuit. Brown has KO ability, but Barnett is going to be tough for him. Barnett will make Browne work from the start and Browne will fatigue quickly. Look for Barnett to score a submission on a tired Browne in the third round. UFC 168 FREE PICK – Josh Barnett -205
