UFC 139 in San Jose features a tremendous card with plenty of opportunities to make some money. Here are our UFC 139 free picks.

Stephan Bonnar +120 vs. Kyle Kingsbury -150

Bonnar has had a rebirth since losing to Jon Jones and Mark Coleman by decision. He was in a war with Krzysztof Soszynski that ended in a loss due to a cut. But he came back in the rematch and KO’d Soszynski in the 2nd round, and looked impressive in a unanimous decision win. Kingsbury has looked good in rattling off wins since his stint on The Ultimate Fighter. But Bonnar is a step up in competition, and he’ll take the win here. Take Bonnar +120.

Rick Story -145 vs. Martin Kampmann +115

Story’s star was on the rise after defeating Thiago Alves in May, but he came back a month later and lost to Charlie Brenneman. Kampmann is coming off two losses, one to Diego Sanchez and one to Jake Shields. And a matchup with Story will not be the fight to get him back in the win column. Kampmann has trouble with wrestlers and Story will smother him. It might not be pretty but, Story will get it done. Take Story -145.

Urijah Faber -250 vs. Brian Bowles +195

The darling of the UFC, so to speak, is Urijah Faber. This bugs some observers, but no one gets love and publicity for losing fights. Faber is a winner and former champion. Brian Bowles is also a former champion and known for his heavy hands, but he is excellent at submissions too. But to me this fight will be decided by Faber’s wrestling and scramble ability. His quickness and creativity allow him to win most scrambles, and his wrestling could potentially nullify –or at least temper — Bowles’ power right hand. Take Faber -250.

Cung Le -145 vs. Wanderlei Silva +115

Is it silly to bet money on a 35-year old fighter that is just 2-4 in the UFC and has lost 6 of his last 8 fights dating back to 2006? That is what you’d be doing if you put money on Wanderlei Silva. But here’s the catch: his opponent is Cung Le. While Le is an excellent fighter, he is a part-time fighter at best, has never fought in the UFC, has never fought anyone like Silva and hasn’t fought in a year and a half. Silva will come out fast and furious and knock Le out. Take Silva +115.

Dan Henderson +110 vs. Shogun Rua -140

I believe it to be as simple as this: do you think Henderson will be able that patented, thunderous overhand right on Rua’s chin? Then you bet on Hendo. If you think Rua can kickbox Hendo and keep him at distance, then Rua may score a KO and he’s your man. As for me, I’m not ready to bet against Henderson’s right-hand, and I don’t trust Rua in big fights. Take Henderson +110.
