MMAOddsBreaker Staff Picks – UFC 179

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 179 tomorrow (October 25, 2014) in Brazil. After 35 events, James Lynch is alone in first place, picking fights correctly at a 67.0% clip thus far this year. With six unanimous picks across the board on these 11 fights in total, the standings could be in for a decent shake-up following this event. Without further ado: UFC 179
