What is this UFC of which you speak? But seriously, it's been forever since the last UFC card and we're excited to get to sit down and dive through another series of fight picks because of it. UFC Zagreb isn't much of a fan card, but Sunday mid-day MMA with a bunch of heavyweight fights offers a lot of entertainment for good times (even if they're just ugly-fight good times). We're talking about each and every matchup on the card including the main event between Ben Rothwell and Junior dos Santos and everything below it. We've got odds and picks for every fight along with our analysis as to why.
