MMAOddsBreaker Staff Picks – UFC 187 has returned for 2015 and just like last year, we’re keeping a running tally of our staff’s fight picks for all major mixed martial arts (MMA) events. Everyone has a clean slate with the new year, and we’ve added three new staff members to the our special picks chart this time around. After 15 events thus far in 2015, Vegas Matty still has a stranglehold on first place with an 114-56 record (67.1%), while Brad Wharton trails in second place at 105-65. There were a whopping seven unanimous picks for this UFC 187 event out of 12 fights (Justin Scoggins, Islam Makhachev, Rose Namajunas, John Dodson, Travis Browne, Donald Cerrone and Chris Weidman). There was only one really contentious pick for this event and it was the preliminary card bout between Josh Burkman and Dong Hyun Kim (Burkman 5 – Kim 4). Without further ado: UFC 187
