UFC 172 – 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 UFC 172 today (April 26, 2014) which features a light heavyweight title bout between champion Jon Jones and challenger Glover Texeira. After 11 events,  James Lynch has again overtaken first place, picking fights correctly at a 67.4% clip thus far this year. With five unanimous picks across the board on this 10-fight card, the standings might not get shaken up as much as usual this time around. Without further ado:
