CFC, Art of Fighting, UCUK, Alliance Fights, and DEEP Picks

Last week was bittersweet for me. In my first weekend picking fights for PRO MMA (promma.info) I went 14-5 with 2 no contests, which is a rate of 74%. However, my 3-2 performance on the Strikeforce main card was not good enough to take first place in the PRO MMA Staff Picks. That honor was held by my fellow colleagues Dusty Adams, Tim Thompson, and Jack Bratcher.

This weekend there are a few quality match-ups including the finals of a light heavyweight tournament and a featherweight title fight, but most of the fights are tune-ups. That means that come Monday there will be no excuse for a bad picking percentage. So, here are this weekends picks, and as always if you think you know better, let me know in the comments section.
