UFC Fight Night 133 is the final of three cards this weekend being counted towards our MMASucka staff picks. All the action begins this evening, July 14th, from the CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho, the first ever visit to the city and state. Heavyweight Junior dos Santos will make his return following a tainted supplement suspension to fight UFC debutant and former WSOF/PFL heavyweight champion Blagoy Ivanov in the night’s five-round main event.

Welterweights Sage Northcutt and Zak Ottow will battle in the night’s co-main event, while Chad Mendes returns after a two year suspension to fight #12-ranked featherweight Myles Jury. Idaho’s six-fight main card will begin live on Fox Sports 1 at 10:00pm ET (7:00pm PT).

The WINNER of staff picks will have a chance to receive a custom-made championship belt from ProAmBelts following completion of the 2018 calendar year! The 2017 winner was awarded to Wesley Riddle, compiling a record of 118-74 for main card fights. Staff picks compose of both Bellator and UFC fights taken place on the main card.
