Welcome back to the Sherdog Staff Pick ‘Em, where this week we will
attempt to pick the winners and losers for UFC
261
.

First off, a bit of housekeeping: We collectively picked up a
Big Whiff Award last week, as we unanimously
picked Abdul
Razak Alhassan
to defeat Jacob
Malkoun
and were proven wrong. We’ll do better. This week, the
staff picks heavily favor defending champs Kamaru
Usman
, Weili Zhang
and Valentina
Shevchenko
to retain their belts on Saturday, but there’s
plenty of dissension, and quite a few upset picks, below that title
tripleheader. Sherdog Radio Network executive producer Keith
Shillan is up for a Super Cojones Award as the
only one out of 18 pickers to go with Karl
Roberson
over Brendan
Allen
. Time will tell whether he’s crazy or brilliant.

Without further ado, here are the Sherdog staff picks for UFC 261:
Usman vs. Masvidal 2.
