UFC Fight Night 43 and 44: Main Card Staff Picks

It's another UFC doubleheader this weekend, with Fight Night 43 and Fight Night 44 coming at you from opposite corners of the globe. In New Zealand, we've got James Te Huna vs. Nate Marquardt, while San Antonio hosts Cub Swanson vs. Jeremy Stephens.

Because of the gap in time zones, UFC Fight Night 43 will start in the wee hours of Saturday morning on Fight Pass—2:30 a.m. ET for those of us residing in the Americas. UFC Fight Night 44 will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET with one prelim fight on Fight Pass and the rest of the card on Fox Sports 1.

As per usual, Bleacher Report's staff is excited to present our main card picks. We'll be making calls for both events, but so as not to strain your focus, we'll whip through the Fight Night 43 forecast, simply stating our choices, before providing some analysis for Fight Night 44.

Got it? Assuming you do, it's time to move on and get down to the picks. 

Riley "Renaissance" Kontek, James "Medieval Times" MacDonald, Scott "Second Ice Age" Harris, Sean "Stone Age" Smith and I, Craig "Cold War" Amos, will now bless thou with our main card predictions.
