Quick Picks: UFC Fight Night – Lawler vs. Dos Anjos


With winter well and truly set in, the UFC heads to snowy Winnipeg, Canada this Saturday night for their latest FOX broadcast. Former champions Robbie Lawler and Rafael Dos Anjos meet in an exciting main event while the rest of the fairly well put together card features great fights like Santiago Ponzinibbio vs. Mike Perry and Glover Teixeira vs. Misha Cirkunov. Here are my picks for the event.
