Default UFC 93 pick

Not doing the whole preview of the card thing this time, but let me say that I really like Rousimar Palhares over Jeremy Horn - and I haven't steered you wrong in this forum yet (yet). I know Palhares will be at least -350, but Jeremy Horn is done. His day is past and he simply isn't up to the level of strength and conditioning of the modern MMA athlete. He doesn't have a win over a half way legitimate opponent since 2006, and he's been through too many fights. I am mildly concerned about Palhares' lack of a standup game, but Horn is first and foremost a grappler, and if this goes to the ground Palhares will submit him. This match looks like the UFC trying to promote Palhares by feeding him a seemingly credible opponent with a "name" but no chance of beating him.
