Host Adam Burke got together with UFC expert handicapper Christian Pina for a quick look at UFC Fight Night 149 in St. Petersburg, Russia coming up this weekend. The main event features Alistair Overeem vs. Alexei Oleinik and the guys also jumped around the card to find some additional free picks and exciting matchups to share with our BangTheBook Radio listeners.
This is a tough fight card to handicap because there are a lot of unknown fighters and a lot of chalky matchups over in Russia. The main event features a couple of household names, but Islam Makhachev and Arman Tsarukyan is the lead-in to the main event. Marcelo Golm and Devin Clark are known names and so is Shevchenko, though Antonina is not nearly as well known as sister Valentina.
Adam and Christian worked their way through the card to find good betting picks and predictions for this one and also teased next week’s segment with a strong UFC on ESPN 3 card.
