See who the Bloody Elbow staff is picking for Sunday's TUF 19 Finale at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Alas, the record stands as 2-0 and the 2nd fight made it abundantly clear how much better Edgar has become compared to Penn. Unless Edgar has hit a sharp decline or Penn really is rejuvenated on the 19 more
