The MMA Vivisection - UFC Fortaleza: Belfort vs. Gastelum picks, odds, & analysis

Zane Simon and Connor Ruebusch give you all the ins, outs, ups, and downs of this weekend's UFC card. We'll have picks and odds for everything from Vitor Belfort vs. Kelvin Gastelum down to Garreth McLellan vs. Paulo Borrachinha.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

UFC 209 may have been a bit of a last minute disaster (although most of the card was actually still really fun), but for those who feel like they got less than they bargained for, hopefully this week’s event will fill the void. The card features veteran legends Vitor Belfort taking on Kelvin Gastelum and Shogun Rua taking on Gian Villante, to go along with a bunch of top 15 matchups. Edson Barboza fights Beneil Dariush, Jussier Formiga fights Ray Borg, and Bethe Correia fights Marion Reneau. It should be a fun night of action fights top to bottom.
