New, comments

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch take a look at all the fights on this Sunday's UFC card. We'll have picks and odds for everything from BJ Penn vs. Yair Rodriguez down to Dmitri Smoliakov vs. Cyril Asker.

It’s fight time again. Which means it’s time for more fight picks and analysis than you can shake a stick at (please don’t shake a stick at me). This week, we’re talking about UFC Phoenix and a mostly meaningless, but potentially fun and sloppy UFC card for a Sunday night. In the main event, BJ Penn returns to take on Yair Rodriguez, while Joe Lauzon fights a mirror match against Marcin Held in the co main. Throw Killa-B on there taking on Court McGee and you’ve got some violence potential.
