After a brief hiatus for the TUF China Finale in Macao, it’s that time again where the staff of Talking Brawls MMA give you their main card picks for the latest installment of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
In this edition we look at UFN 37: Gustafsson vs. Manuwa.
Coming off the UFC 170 card headlined by Rousey vs. McMann, Keith Fitzpatrick extended his lead decent 4-1 result (Pyle, MacDonald, Cormier & Rousey) with Niall McGrath finishing the night with a struggling 2-3 result (Pyle & Cormier) and myself finishing the night an average 3-2 (Pyle, Cormier & Rousey).
Going into tonight’s event Keith is on top with a very impressive overall record of 13-2, I am a little behind with a record of 11-4, while Niall is really lagging behind with a record of 8-7. Will Keith keep marching ahead, can I catch up up with him, can Niall reverse his misfortunes?
Without further delay let’s get into tonight’s picks for the main card.
