UFC on FX 8 Free Picks
CATARINA, Brazil (The Spread) – UFC on FX 8 takes place on Saturday night in Brazil. Here are a few picks to consider from this event.
The UFC on FX 8 will take place from Arena Jaragua in Santa Catarina, Brazil with the main card bouts airing live on FX at 9PM ET on Saturday. All odds are according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.
This should be a very competitive fight, but I ultimately like Belfort to win in his home country. Rockhold is a grinder and tough to beat, but Belfort has lightning-quick hands and tremendous punching power. In the first two rounds of this fight, he will find a way to land one explosive punch, which will set up the TKO finish. Belfort has only struggled in the 185-pound division against Anderson Silva, who was faster and just as powerful. Rockhold can’t say that about himself. UFC FREE PICK – Vitor Belfort -105
I am going to go with the underdog in this one. Dos Anjos is the slight favorite, and I think that is largely due to having the crowd on his side. Dos Anjos has struggled in past fights with grapplers and Dunham is solid in that department. I think Dunham will avoid the striking game with Dos Anjos and use his size and strength to control the skinnier fighter on the ground. UFC FREE PICK – Evan Dunham +155
