Here are Sports Untapped’s free picks for UFC 131.

Donald Cerrone -400 vs. Vagner Rocha +300 I’d personally rather see this on the prelims and not on the PPV, but Donald “The Cowboy” Cerrone is a bit of a character and marketable. The line doesn’t lie here. Cerrone seems back to form after losses to his nemesis Ben Henderson. This is also Rocha’s first fight in the UFC, and Cerrone is just better in all areas. Take Cerrone -400.

Demian Maia -105 vs. Mark Munoz -125 I’m already calling this to be the fight of the night. I expect there will be standup exchanges, serious grappling and plenty of scrambles. I’ve been impressed with the progress from Maia since his defeat to Anderson Silva. his striking is much improved and his ground game is obviously second to none. I just don’t see Munoz knocking out Maia, and if it goes to the ground he loses there. Take Maia -105.

Jon Olav Einemo +160 vs. Dave Herman -200 Einemo is the former Shooto and one-time Pride fighter making his first fight in the UFC and his first fight in almost 5 years. Herman has fought just about everywhere: Shark Fights, Bellator, EliteXC and on and on. He has power plus ground skills and I think he will be too much for Einemo. Take Herman -200.

Kenny Florian -300 vs. Diego Nunes +225

Florian makes his first foray into the featherweight division, and while he may choke in big fights (according to Dana White), but he certainly dominates the rest of them. Nunes is a fine fighter, but Florian is way too heady and experienced for Nunes to do anything Florian hasn’t see before. Take Florian -300.

Junior dos Santos -165 vs. Shane Carwin +135

Tread carefully, because one punch could — and will likely — end this fight. But if you are going strictly on the matchup, you have to like dos Santos. Carwin has had a long layoff and dos Santos has a deadly combination of speed and power. I won’t be the least surprised if Carwin KOs Junior, but my money is on the younger, quicker fighter. Take dos Santos -165.

Prelim Quick Picks:

Beltran over Rosa

Poirier over Young

Elkins over Omigawa

Soszynski over Massenzio

Ring over Head

Weidman over Bongfeldt

Stout over Edwards
