The UFC returns to Poland this week with a fun welterweight scdrap in the main event.

UFC Fight Night 118 takes place Saturday at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland, and the entire card streams on UFC Fight Pass.

(Click here to open a PDF of the staff picks grid in a separate window.)

In the main event, former lightweight title challenger Donald Cerrone (32-9 MMA, 19-6 UFC) continues his run at welterweight against unbeaten British up-and-comer Darren Till (15-0-1 MMA, 3-0-1 UFC). Cerrone is a slight betting favorite and is trying to snap the first two-fight losing skid of his career. He’s the pick of seven of our 10 MMAjunkie editors, writers and radio hosts.

In the co-feature, former women’s strawweight title challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz (10-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) fights for her home fans in Poland against Jodie Esquibel (6-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who will be making her UFC debut. Kowalkiewicz is the biggest favorite on the card at more than 4-1, and to little surprise she’s a unanimous pick from our staff members.

Also on the main card, Jan Blachowicz (19-7 MMA, 2-4 UFC) fights in front of his home fans in a light heavyweight bout against Devin Clark (8-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC). But it’s Clark who has the nod from eight of our 10 pickers. And unbeaten promotional newcomer Oskar Piechota (9-0-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will try to thrill his home fans when he takes on Jonathan Wilson (7-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at middleweight. Piechota is a 2-1 favorite and is our second unanimous pick on the card.

In the MMAjunkie reader consensus picks, Cerrone, Kowalkiewicz, Blachowicz and Piechota are the choices.

Check out all the picks above.
