IXFA 7 Pick Results: Media vs Fans

IXFA 7 is in the books, so let’s see how the fans and media did with their picks.  Our media panel, made up of local Houston MMA media folk, made their picks and gave you some reasons why. So, how did they do? Well let’s break it down.

Below is a chart showing how each media member fared.  For fun, we’ve added in the combined fan picks from ALL the submissions we received. We did this to see how the fans as a whole did versus our media experts.
