MMAOddsBreaker Staff Picks – UFC Fight Night 76 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 32 events thus far in 2015, Vegas Matty is still alone in first place with a 221-131 record (63.4%), while Brad Taschuk trails in second place at 226-138. We had two unanimous picks out of the 10 overall bouts for this event (Bubba Bush, Steven Ray, Neil Seery). The most contentious picks were Darren Elkins vs Rob Whiteford (Elkins 5 – Whiteford 4) and Scott Askham vs Krzysztof Jotko (Askham 5 – Jotko 4) and Adriano Martins vs Islam Makhachev (Makhachev 6 – Martins 3).

*Gabe picked Holohan and Daly in his pre-fight articles, but changed his mind after viewing today’s weigh-ins Everyone also has a no contest and a draw on their record after the Kid Yamamoto vs Roman Salazar bout ended early due to an eye poke and when the Ishihara vs Hirota fight ended in a draw. Follow along in 2015 to see who wins!
