Welcome back to the Sherdog Staff Pick 'Em league, where this week
we will take our best shots at UFC 254.
Last week was not a great one for the group, as we collectively
picked up a Big Whiff Award for unanimously
Gamrot to defeat fellow debutant Guram
Kutateladze. There was a Super Cojones Award
as well, awarded to Mike Sloan for being the only one to correctly
Martinez to spoil the Octagon return of Thomas
This week, the most obvious surprise is that a majority of the
staff is going with Justin
Gaethje to stop Khabib
Nurmagomedov from being just the fourth man to successfully
defend the UFC lightweight title three times. The group is also
heavily in favor of former middleweight champ Robert
Whittaker continuing his march back to the title at the expense
Cannonier, despite Cannonier being the slight betting favorite.
Only time will tell if we're out of our minds. Here are the Sherdog
staff picks for UFC 254: Khabib vs. Gaethje.
