The UFC is back in Canada this week for UFC Fight Night 105, which takes place on a rare Sunday.

UFC Fight Night 105 takes place Sunday at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The card airs on FS1 after early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

In the main event, Travis Browne (18-5-1 MMA, 9-5-1 UFC) gets ready to do battle against Derrick Lewis (17-4 MMA, 8-2 UFC). Lewis has been on a tear at heavyweight, and it shows. He’s a 10-0 unanimous pick from our MMAjunkie editors, writers and radio hosts.

The co-main event is Johny Hendricks’ (17-6 MMA, 12-6 UFC) debut at welterweight against Hector Lombard (34-6-1 MMA, 3-4 UFC), another former 170-pounder. Hendricks, a former UFC 170-pound champ, is a 7-3 pick against the slight favorite and former Bellator champ.

Also on the main card, Sam Sicilia (15-7 MMA, 5-6 UFC) takes on the unbeaten Gavin Tucker (9-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) in a featherweight fight. And the unbeaten newcomer Tucker is our pick at a 7-3 clip. In a fight between “TUF” winners, Cezar Ferreira (11-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC) takes on Elias Theodorou (12-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC). Theodorou is an overwhelming 9-1 pick. Another unbeaten newcomer, Gina Mazany (4-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), takes on former title challenger Sara McMann (10-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) in a women’s bantamweight bout.

Given her short-notice acceptance of the fight, and McMann’s 5-1 favorite status, she’s a unanimous pick form our staff. And to open the main card, Paul Felder (12-3 MMA, 4-2 UFC) meets Alessandro Ricci (10-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at lightweight. Felder is a fairly significant favorite and is a 7-3 pick from our staff.

In the MMAjunkie reader consensus picks, Lewis, Lombard, Tucker, Theodorou, McMann and Felder are the choices.

Check out all the picks above.
