Quick Picks: UFC Fight Night – Stephens vs Choi

St. Louis, Missouri is the location for this week’s big MMA event as the UFC visits with a pretty good fight night card this Sunday. Fan favourites Doo Ho Choi and Jeremy Stephens headline the show with a strong support from the likes of Vitor Belfort, Darren Elkins, Kamaru Usman and Paige VanZant.

Here are my picks for the event.

Featherweight – Jeremy Stephens vs. Doo Ho Choi – This really is a pick ’em fight but I’m taking the power of Stephens to tell.

Middleweight – Uriah Hall vs. Vitor Belfort – Hall can be flaky but he should be a well past it Belfort.

Women’s Flyweight – Paige VanZant vs. Jessica-Rose Clark – I’m taking PVZ here.

Welterweight – Kamaru Usman vs. Emil Weber Meek – Usman is the real deal and he should win this.

Featherweight – Darren Elkins vs. Michael Johnson – Elkins

Lightweight – James Krause vs. Alex White – Krause

Lightweight – Matt Frevola vs. Marco Polo Reyes – Reyes

Welterweight – Thiago Alves vs. Zak Cummings – Alves
