UFC 162 Predictions Summary

The fights are just about to begin tonight, but I wanted to get a summary of my picks in one post, for easy reference.

Here they are, with each fighter’s FPR in parentheses:

  • Chris Weidman (+7.25*) over Anderson Silva (+6.96)
  • Frankie Edgar (+6.39) over Charles Oliveira (+1.95)
  • Tim Kennedy (+6.23) over Roger Gracie (+4.14*)
  • Tim Boetsch (+3.68) over Mark Munoz (+1.44)
  • Dennis Siver (+1.84) over Cub Swanson (+1.03)
  • Chris Leben (-0.40) over Andrew Craig (-3.40*)
  • Norman Parke (+1.48**) over Kazuki Tokudome (-1.76**)
  • Gabriel Gonzaga (+1.07) over Dave Herman (-2.94*)
  • Edson Barboza (+2.26*) over Rafaello Oliveira (-1.54)
  • Seth Baczynski (+0.14) over Brian Melancon (-1.97**)
  • Mike Pierce (+3.83) over David Mitchell (-3.40*)

*Denotes fighter with under 60 minutes of fight time scored by Fight Metric and a lower-confidence FPR.

**FPR supplemented by video scouting due to lack of Fight Metric data.
