The MMA Vivisection - UFC Copenhagen: Hermansson vs. Cannonier picks, odds, & analysis

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch return to breakdown this week’s UFC event in Copenhagen, Denmark. With picks and odds for every fight on the card. From Jack Hermansson vs. Jared Cannonier in the main event, down to Jack Shore vs. Nohelin Hernandez in the opening prelims.

UFC Copenhagen is one of the promotion’s better small-card efforts in a while. Not blessed with a high-profile main event, it none the less promises interest and action from top to bottom. Very much the kind of show the UFC became known for in its early-2010s heyday. And that’s not to say the main event is bad, Jack Hermansson vs. Jared Cannonier is an intriguing middleweight fight, it’s just not a big cut above Gunnar Nelson vs. Gilbert Burns or Nicolas Dalby vs. Alex Oliveira, or Lando Vannata vs. Marc Diakiese. And that’s a good thing.
