MMAOddsBreaker Staff Picks – UFC 193 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 34 events thus far in 2015, Vegas Matty is still alone in first place with a 244-142 record (63.2%), while Brad Wharton trails in second place at 241-145. We had a whopping seven unanimous picks out of 13 fights on the card (James Moontasri, Richard Walsh, Gian Villante, Mark Hunt, Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Ronda Rousey). The most contentious picks were Danny Martinez vs Richie Vaculik (Vaculik 5 – Martinez 4) and Uriah Hall vs Robert Whittaker (Hall 5 – Whittaker 4). Without further ado: UFC 193 Staff Picks
