The UFC is back in Florida this week for another show on the big FOX network.

UFC on FOX 28 takes place Saturday at Amway Center in Orlando. The card airs on FOX following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

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

In the main event, Jeremy Stephens (27-14 MMA, 14-13 UFC) headlines his second show so far in 2018 when he meets fellow featherweight Josh Emmett (13-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC). Stephens is the slight betting favorite, but it’s Emmett who is the leader among our 14 MMAjunkie editors, writers, radio hosts and videographers. The Team Alpha Male product has a 10-4 edge in the picks.

In the co-feature, Jessica Andrade (17-6 MMA, 8-4 UFC) meets Tecia Torres (10-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) in a women’s strawweight fight that could set the pecking order for title contention in the division. Andrade is a 3-1 favorite in the fight, and a heavy 12-2 pick from our staff members.

Also on the main card, Ilir Latifi (13-5 MMA, 6-3 UFC) takes on Ovince Saint Preux (22-10 MMA, 10-5 UFC) at light heavyweight. Florida native Saint Preux is a heavy 11-3 pick. And to open the main card, Max Griffin (13-4 MMA, 1-2 UFC) is the card’s biggest underdog against Orlando’s own Mike Perry (11-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC). Only one person is picking Griffin to pull off the upset, leaving Perry a 13-1 pick.

In the MMAjunkie reader consensus picks, Stephens, Andrade, Saint Preux and Perry are the choices.

Check out all the picks above.
