PKC's UFC 146 Picks and Predictions

Main card
Heavyweight Championship bout: Junior dos Santos vs. Frank Mir
Pick: Dos Santos
Mir's been talking a lot about submitting JDS, even going so far as to say he is going to pull guard on him. I'm not sure if it's just blowing smoke or a mental tactic to catch Cigano off base, but I still think JDS will come out on top.

Heavyweight bout: Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva
Pick: Velasquez

Heavyweight bout: Roy Nelson vs. Dave Herman
Pick: Nelson

Heavyweight bout: Stipe Miočić vs. Shane del Rosario
Pick: Miočić
Two great strikers, but Miocic is the better grappler.

Heavyweight bout: Stefan Struve vs. Lavar Johnson
Pick: Struve
I'm not sure about this one, because Struve might be outgunned, but I am still going with the lanky giant.

Preliminary card
Featherweight bout: Diego Brandao vs. Darren Elkins
Pick: Brandao

Lightweight bout: Edson Barboza vs. Jamie Varner
Pick: Barboza

Middleweight bout: Jason Miller vs. C.B. Dollaway
Pick: Mayhem Miller

Welterweight bout: Dan Hardy vs. Duane Ludwig
Pick: Hardy

Lightweight bout: Jacob Volkmann vs. Paul Sass
Pick: Volkmann

Light Heavyweight bout: Kyle Kingsbury vs. Glover Teixeira
Pick: Kingsbury

Featherweight bout: Mike Brown vs. Daniel Pineda
