MMAOddsBreaker Staff Picks – UFC Fight Night 87 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 one new staff member to the our special picks chart this time around. After 11 events thus far in 2016, Brian Hemminger is now alone in first place with a 88-47 overall record (65.2%). Nick Kalikas is in second place at 85-50. There were four unanimous picks out of the 13 fights on this card (Leon Edwards, Kyoji Horiguchi, Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Germaine de Randamie). The most contentious pick was Willie Gates vs Ulka Sasaki (Gates 4 – Sasaki 4). Without further ado: UFC Fight Night 87
