2013 UFC On FOX 7 Free Picks for Henderson vs. Melendez
By Drew Sharper

SAN JOSE, CA (The Spread) – The UFC On FOX 7 takes place on Saturday night and features a solid card. Here are some free picks to consider for this event.

The UFC on FOX 7 will take place from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California with the main card bouts airing live on FOX at 8PM ET. All odds are according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.

UFC LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPIONHIP BOUT - Benson Henderson (18-2) vs. Gilbert Melendez (21-2).

This should be a competitive bout and I would be surprised if it didn’t go a full 25 minutes. Both men push a solid place and can take the fight to the ground or have success standing. I think the key to this fight will be the strength of Henderson and his experience in the UFC. This a lot for Melendez to deal with in his first UFC fight. Henderson is comfortable having a huge fight in the octagon and I think he is a little bit more of a bigger fighter compared to Melendez. His size and power should help him get the decision win. UFC FREE PICK – Benson Henderson -275


UFC HEAVYWEIGHT BOUT - Frank Mir (16-6) vs. Daniel Cormier (11-0)

Cormier is the heavy favorite and I think he will win, but Mir is a tough opponent. Mir poses a great challenge on the ground with his submission ability. Cormier should have the striking and wrestling edge, but he is not a real polished striker. I think Cormier will try to strike, but won’t have a ton of success, but do enough to get the decision victory. UFC FREE PICK – Daniel Cormier -420


UFC LIGHTWEIGHT BOUT – Josh Thomson (19-5) vs. Nate Diaz (16-8)

This should probably be fight of the night. Both men push a fast pace and aren’t afraid to slug it out. Both also are good in scrambles on the ground. The key to this fight will be Diaz’ length. He has a much larger reach than Thomson and that should allow him to work his jab and keep Thomson from getting in striking range. Diaz will be able to then dictate the fight and earn the decision victory. UFC FREE PICK – Nate Diaz -200
