Who You Got? Sherdog Staff Pick 'Em: UFC on ESPN 16

We, the writers, editors and forum staff of Sherdog.com, need to eat some crow.

Ahead of the co-main event of UFC 253 last weekend, the Pick 'Em league unanimously favored Dominick Reyes to defeat Jan Blachowicz and win the vacant light heavyweight title. We were dead wrong, we earn a rare—but well deserved—Big Whiff Award, and unlike previous Big Whiffs, there was no freakish disqualification or injury at play. We simply underestimated what the new champ terms his "legendary Polish Power." Congratulations, Mr. Blachowicz.

With that out of the way, we appear not to have learned our lesson, as this week's UFC on ESPN 16 card features an unprecedented three unanimous picks, in the form of heavy favorites Yorgan de Castro, Kyler Phillips and Dusko Todorovic, and the only fight approaching parity is the main event between Holly Holm and Irene Aldana. Only time will tell whether we're back for another generous helping of corvid surprise next week.

Without further ado, here are the Sherdog staff picks for UFC on ESPN 16: Holm vs. Aldana.
