MMAOddsBreaker Staff Picks – UFC 198 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 12 events thus far in 2016, Brian Hemminger and Nick Kalikas are now tied for first place with 96-52 overall records (64.9%). Jay Primetown is in second place at 94-54. There were seven unanimous picks out of the 12 fights on this card (Jacare Souza, Cris Cyborg, Warlley Alves, Demian Maia, Thiago Santos, Francisco Trinaldo and Patrick Cummins). The most contentious picks were Zubaira Tukhugov vs Renato Moicano (Tukhugov 3 – Moicano 5) and John Lineker vs Rob Font (Lineker 3 – Font 5). Without further ado: UFC 198
