has returned for 2015 and just like last year, we’re keeping a running tally of our staff’s fight picks for all major mixed martial arts (MMA) events. Everyone has a clean slate with the new year, and we’ve added three new staff members to the our special picks chart this time around. After 25 events thus far in 2015, Vegas Matty and Adam Martin are now tied for first place with a 180-102 record (63.8%), while Brad Wharton trails in third place at 178-104. There were four unanimous picks for this UFC on Fox 16 event out of 12 fights (Zak Cummings, Ramsey Nijem, Daron Cruickshank and Gian Villante). The most contentious picks for this event were Jessamyn Duke vs Elizabeth Phillips (Phillips 4 – Duke 5), Jim Miller vs Danny Castillo (Miller 5 – Castillo 4) and Edson Barboza vs Paul Felder (Felder 5 – Barboza 4).
