With the next UFC event having a whirlwind of features, this makes for a cannot miss event. There are three title fights, more than enough stacked fights, and the event is taking place on an island.
For a DraftKings fantasy lineup, there are many picks of fighters to choose from. Some are more valuable than others, but you can definitely find some value here.
Top Picks To Watch
The lineup to make will differ for everyone. However, this makes for a competitive one as any. Below are some of the most bang for your buck fantasy lineup:
- Karol Rosa $9200
- Zhalgas Zhumagulov $7500
- Davey Grant $7700
- Kamaru Usman $8,900
- Makwan Amirkhani $8,600
- Jiri Prochazka $7,800
The price tag for Rosa is fairly high. In fact, it is the highest on the list and it is in the early prelims. The reason it is so high is partly due to her UFC debut having over 170 significant strikes and a takedown. These are great for fantasy points.
Zhumagulov is probably one of the more interesting picks for this lineup. His price tag does not really suit him well but it ultimately helps us out here with it being cheaper. As an underdog, his opponent better not think of him in the octagon because this guy means business.
Grant is another underdog to like here and nearly the same price as Zhumagulov here. He knows how to rack up points for fantasy lineups. His last fight he had 6 takedowns in addition to the victory.
According to his fantasy sports numbers, he has averaged 113.1 fantasy points per fight. Usman has an all around game that can ultimately dictate how the night goes against Masvidal. I look for Usman to rack up tons of points throughout the night.
This submission king is a force to be reckoned with. I do not want to say that he is a guaranteed win here, but his odds are very nice. I look for him to continue doing the dirty work of takedowns and submission attempts to claim victory.
Prochazka seems to just touch his opponents and they go to sleep. He has an impressive 23 wins in a knockout format. With his power and significant strikes, you can have a great opportunity to dial in some points with this pick.
