MMAOddsBreaker Staff Picks – UFC Fight Night 80 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 37 events thus far in 2015, Brad Taschuk has taken control of first place with a 266-157 record (63.0%), while Brad Wharton trails in second place at 265-158. There were five unanimous picks out of the 12 bouts for tonight’s card (Kailin Curran, Zobaira Tukhugov, Aljamain Sterling, Tim Means and Sage Northcutt). The most contentious picks were Santiago Ponzinibbio vs Andreas Stahl (Stahl – 4, Ponzinibbio-5) and Paige VanZant vs Rose Namajunas (VanZant 5 – Namajunas 4).
