UFC on Fuel TV 5 will take place from the Capital FM Arena with the main card bouts airing live on Fuel TV at 4PM ET. All picks are made from odds according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.

UFC Heavyweight Bout – Stefan Struve (24-5) vs. Stipe Miocic (9-0)

Struve is a tough fighter and he poses a threat on the ground, but I think Miocic is the better of the two. He has great striking and respectable grappling skills. Struve lacks the ability to get the fight to the ground with wrestling, so his only hope is to pull guard. I expect Miocic to avoid that and pepeer Struve with big punches and kicks. Look for a second round TKO for the Croatian. FREE PICK – Stipe Miocic -225

UFC Welterweight Bout – Dan Hardy (24-1) vs. Amir Sadollah (6-3)

This fight is in Hardy’s backyard and it should be a fight that plays into his favor. Sadollah is a complex muay thai striker, but he lacks a lot of KO power. Hardy is a very technical boxer with one-punch knockout power. The key for Hardy will be to stay off his back, which I think he can do against Sadollah. I look for a quick first round KO for Hardy, as he catches Sadollah on a counter punch. FREE PICK – Dan Hardy -200

UFC Lightweight Bout – Paul Sass (13-0) vs. Matt Wiman (14-6)

Wiman is a grinding fighter that has only lost to some of the best in the UFC at 155 pounds. All his losses have also come by decision, as he makes his opponents have to really work to win. Sass is impressive, with 12 of his 13 wins coming by submission, but this is a big step up in competition for him. I see Sass getting overwhelmed by Wiman’s pressure and Wiman controlling the fight for 15 minutes to earn a decision. FREE PICK – Matt Wiman -115
