Seriously, UFC? Another back-to-back weekend of two fights? At least they are on two different days this time. Anyway, UFC 175 and The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale are coming up, and that means a whole lot of fights to pick from, so here’s a whole bunch of people to predict the outcomes! From the deep south and the land of the ROLL EAGLE WAR TIDE, Jessica “Lobster Mobster” Hudnall. The fanciest man in all the fancy lands, Ashley “Burnsy” Burns. Returning from his hiatus of being a swarthy man about town is our good friend New York Ric from MMAFighting.com, and with us once again is the wonderful Spilled Bag of Ice. And joining us for the first (and hopefully not only) time is Sydnie Jones of Women’s MMA.
It’s going to be a bloodbath of expertise this week, with the UFC 175 action beginning tonight at 7PM ET on UFC Fight Pass (Fox Sports 1 prelims at 8 PM ET and PPV at 10 PM ET as usual) and the TUF 19 Finale kicking off on Fight Pass tomorrow at 6 PM ET and then airing on FS1 at 7 PM ET.

Before the With Leather panel of experts weigh in on the fights, here’s Don “The Predator” Frye to offer his thoughts and picks. Will we do better than him? I hope so!
Middleweight – Luke Zachrich vs Guilherme “Bomba” Vasconcelos
Jessica: LZR has way too many first names, and I can’t abide by that. Vasconcelos wins by third round submission, taking an arm and a name home with him.
