The SciFighting staff made their first ever event picks for the UFC Fight Night 36: Machida vs. Mousasi card. Yours truly went perfect on my picks at 5-0 for the main card, establishing an early lead for the year’s picks.

There is a very talented and knowledgable staff nipping at my heels, however, and they will look for redemption at UFC 170.

You can check out our results from UFC Fight Night 36 here.

UFC 170 takes place Saturday, February 22nd from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas Nevada. The main event is a women’s bantamweight title fight between Ronda Rousey (8-0) and Sara McMann (7-0).

A heated press conference ‘staredown’ between the co-main eventers led to a brief scuffle as Daniel Cormier (13-0) pushed opponent and very real rival, Patrick Cummins (4-0) as soon as he was close enough to make contact.
