Quick Picks – UFC Fight Night: Jacare vs. Brunson 2

Charlotte, North Carolina is the host city for this week’s main MMA fare as the Octagon stops off on the seemingly unending world tour. Middleweight veteran Jacare Souza returns to main event the night against Derek Brunson while uber prospect Mirsad Bektic is the most exciting part of the rest of a pretty average card.

Here are my picks for the card

Middleweight – Ronaldo Souza vs. Derek Brunson: I think this will be closer than people think but the Jacare jiu-jitsu should get him a win.

Featherweight – Dennis Bermudez vs. Andre Fili: I like Bermudez over three rounds here.

Lightweight – Jordan Rinaldi vs. Gregor Gillespie: Gillespie

Welterweight – Drew Dober vs. Frank Camacho: Dober

Lightweight – Bobby Green vs. Erik Koch: Koch

Featherweight – Mirsad Bektić vs. Godofredo Pepey: Bektic

Women’s Flyweight – Katlyn Chookagian vs. Mara Romero Borella: Chookagian

Women’s Strawweight – Randa Markos vs. Juliana Lima: Markos

Women’s Flyweight – Justine Kish vs. Ji Yeon Kim: Kish

Lightweight – Vinc Pichel vs. Joaquim Silva: Pichel

Welterweight – Niko Price vs. George Sullivan: Sullivan

Featherweight – Austin Arnett vs. Cory Sandhagen: Arnett


Jacare via submission at 2/1
