Who You Drafting?
If I could pick one fighter for each match on the main card and build a team for that night to compete on DraftKings, these fighters would be selected:
Why Those Picks
Kevin Lee – Both of those fighters are excellent on the ground. Oliveira has been somewhat wishy washy and not looked like himself in past fights. Lee may develop more points for you with knockdowns and an early round finish.
Demian Maia – Maia has had a long career of steady wins. The two of them are similar fighters, but you could argue that Maia has more experience here. Should get decent points for the decision win and his takedowns.
Renato Moicano – Carneiro (Moicano) should have the upper hand here. I look for him to win a solid decision for this one. He should earn you points for his significant strikes and the decision victory.
Nikita Krylov – Is there such a thing as “smart reckless?” Krylov tends to let loose and when he does, watch out. He should get you points in significant strikes and maybe a first round submission. I look for Krylov to be very aggressive.
Francisco Trinaldo – This fight could be taken in a few different ways. Trinaldo will be able to hit hard and deliver better significant strikes. The fight may go to decision but it is still possible to have a knockout too.
With a limit on the drafting allowance of $50,000 for six fighters, you may not be able to draft every player due to the costs of your lineup. You will be able to enter the fantasy MMA contest once you select your method.
Overall, this UFC Fight Night event is going to be one that a lot of fans remember. If your fighters fail you this time around, then you can select new ones on the next Fight Night. You can also compete against your friends or other MMA fans alike once you get into the system.
With DraftKings you will have non-stop excitement with the MMA sections because they mix it up all the time. There is also no commitment on seasons. Just in case you win with these picks, you are definitely going to have to share the glory.
In addition, we are publishing this article early in the morning and as we are releasing it, FanDuel has now introduced UFC DFS. Give it a try. With the UFC making a statement and saying they will not cancel any events, it looks like we will at least have some MMA for betting and DFS!
