UFC FIGHT NIGHT: BRUNSON VS. HOLLAND FIGHT PICKS

UFC and the NCAA tournament! This is a ratings nightmare for your boy, I need all of the clicks that I can get! I’m going to make these picks with full understanding that no one will read this because no one will be watching anything but basketball tonight.

Regardless, you may have a bankroll from Friday, so maybe you’ll oblige me and take my UFC picks. The UFC has 10 fights coming at us tonight, all on FREE TV. Prelims kick off at 6:30 CT on ESPN2 and the Main Card flips over to ESPN at 9 PM. Kevin Holland looks to add another scalp to his resume. Brunson will be a tough test for Holland but I really think that Holland is fighting on another level than the guys he has faced as of late. I mean hell, this fight was built off of Holland talking shit about Derek Brunson’s striking abilities.“I want to beat Derek Brunson because I don’t like the way he strikes. It just looks awkward,” Holland quipped during an interview back in December with Ariel Helwani.“It’s like a disrespect to striking. It’s sad that he’s knocked out strikers before with that weird striking.” Needless to say, this should be a fun one, Holland is always good for some amusing shit talk in the octagon, in fact here’s a recent supercut of some of his best work.
