Welcome back to the Sherdog Staff Pick ‘Em league, where this week
we will take our best shots at the first Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-view of
the year, UFC 257.

While the UFC 257 lineup is still loaded by any reasonable
standard, some chaos on the scale — and at the fighter hotel — led to several matchups
being rearranged at the last minute, and when the dust settled, 12
fights had become 11. The picks you see here represent the 10
fights that made it through fight week unscathed. Without further
ado, here are the Sherdog staff picks for UFC 257: Poirier vs.
McGregor 2.
