MMAOddsBreaker Staff Picks – UFC 195

New Year, new contest! has returned for 2016 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 two new staff members to the our special picks chart this time around. The winner this year will take home a cool $300. After 41 events in 2015, Brad Taschuk finished standing alone in first place, picking fights correctly at a 63.4% clip. Here are the staff members who will be participating this year along with what they do to help our site: Gabe Killian – MMAOB staff writer Mike James – MMAOB staff writer and MMAOB Premium member James Lynch – MMAOB lead staff writer and host of The Parting Shot Podcast Brad Taschuk – MMAOB staff writer and co-host of The MMA Analysis podcast Brian Hemminger – MMAOB managing editor and co-host of The Premium Oddscast Nick Kalikas – Professional Oddsmaker, owner of and co-host of The Premium Oddscast Jay Primetown – MMAOB staff writer and co-host of The MMA Analysis podcast Brad Wharton – MMAOB feature writer Robert Doxtater – MMAOB feature writer Let’s see what the new year brings. There were only three unanimous picks for this event out of 12 fights (Justine Kish, Kyle Noke and Michael McDonald). The most contentious picks were Joe Duffy vs Dustin Poirier (Duffy 5 – Poirier 4),  Diego Brandao vs Brian Ortega (Ortega 5 – Brandao 4) and Robbie Lawler vs Carlos Condit (Lawler 5 – Condit 4). Without further ado: UFC 195
