TUF Nations Finale – MMAOddsBreaker Staff Picks

Something new we at MMAOddsBreaker.com decided to do for 2014 is to keep a running tally of our fight picks for all major mixed martial arts (MMA) events. It all began with UFC Fight Night 34 at the beginning of the year and it continues with The Ultimate Fighter Nations today (April 16, 2014) which features a middleweight battle between Michael Bisping and Tim Kennedy. After nine events,  Brad Taschuk has now overtaken James Lynch for first place, picking fights correctly at a 66.1% clip thus far this year, although everyone’s stats took a nosedive after UFC Fight Night 38’s historic underdog-heavy event. With six unanimous picks across the board on this 13-fight card, the standings could be in store for a shake-up. Without further ado:
