The overall percentage is headed back in the right direction again. Last week I went 10-1 (1NC), which raised my overall picking rcord to 45-9 (7NC). With the great weekend my percentage jumps from 81% to 83%. Like last weekend there is no big headlining show, but there is still tons of MMA.
Shark Fights 6 – Stars and Stripes
Dave Herman (14-1) vs. Don Frye (20-7-1)
The label “natural athlete” gets thrown around a lot in sports journalism. It is correctly applied to Dave Herman. The man walked on to the University of Indiana wrestling team after not wrestling at all in high school. In 2006, he actually qualified for the NCAA tournament. Herman has criticism for not taking MMA seriously, but here that is not an issue. Pure athleticism will carry him to victory. Don Frye is still the apple of the hardcore fans’ collective eye, but he is also three years older than he was when he drew with Ruben “Warpath” Villareal.
Pick = Dave Herman
