Quick Picks – UFC Fight Night: Barboza vs Lee

Atlantic City, New York is the new look venue for the UFC’s latest fight night event this Saturday night. The card is a good one, with lightweight contenders Edson Barboza and Kevin Lee in the headlining spot, supported well by veterans Cub Swanson and Frankie Edgar meeting for the second time.

My picks for the card

Main Card

Lightweight – Edson Barboza vs. Kevin Lee: If Barboza can stop the takedown his striking should see him through
