Quick fight picks and match up thoughts while watching the UFC weigh-ins live from Stockholm Sweden. I like to finalize my picks during weigh-ins. I get a better feel for relative stature, mood, intensity, and tonight see that Paul Redmond missed weight. Both fighters can still be drafted but Mirsak Bektic is an even bigger favorite and with a potential for a 1st round TKO probably well worth his $11,700 price tag. No real details in this post just my gut picks and outcome predictions.


Pesta vs Erokhin - Not included in the draft list at DraftKings.com. Too bad Pesta should crush it in round one.

Redmond vs Bektic - TKO R1 - Redmond missed weight and looked defeated already.

Taisumov vs Christodoulou  - Decision - Taisumov is the biggest favorite on the card, but in terms of outcome this match up may be too wrestly for big fantasy points.

Krylov vs Nedkov - TKO R3 - Should be a very good fight. Krylov has a better build for this match up, but Nedkov giant noggin and build will make him tough to finish.

Amirkhani vs Ogle - Decision - This is a do or die fight for Ogle

Aliev vs Robertson - TKO R2 - Let the wookie win! Aliev looks like a rock...a furry rock.

Musoke vs Tumenov - Submission R1 or I think the home town Musoke will pull out the finish but if it goes the other way Tumenov will get a TKO

Sicilia vs Corisonni - Decision - Corisonni is in his hometown, but he sucks a bit. This has major decision potential.

Davis vs Bader - Submission R2 - Davis has more to offer in all departments. Go away Bader.

Hendo vs Mousasi  Decision Mous looks good, if hendo wins will be KO in R1 or 2

Johnson vs Gustavason - TKO R2 - Tough call, I like both fighters and each has a few ways to win. I'll be drafting separate teams with each as an anchor.
