MMAOddsBreaker Staff Picks – UFC Fight Night 51

Something has 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 Fight Night 51 tomorrow night (September 13, 2014). After 30 events, Brian Hemminger has retaken a slim one-fight lead over James Lynch, picking fights correctly at a 65.6% clip thus far this year. With just one unanimous pick across the board on these 11 fights in total, the standings could be in for a large shake-up following this event. Without further ado: UFC Fight Night 51
