I’m short on time this week, so here are the fighters I’ll be targeting for this Saturday’s UFC card.
Curtis Blaydes $9400 – Blaydes’ wrestling is going to be the difference here. I think he’ll score well with takedowns and control time and eventually end it with ground and pound late in the 3rd round. I WILL have one lineup with Derrick Lewis because crazy shit sometimes happens with heavyweights. Blaydes will be highly owned, but he should score 120+ fpts.
Ketlen Vieira $9300 – Due to her last two performances, I don’t see many paying up for her. Vieira’s skills on the mat will overwhelm Kunitskaya. Her BJJ and Judo credentials can’t be ignored. Many see this going to a decision, but I think Ketlen puts forth a solid performance and gets a submission in the 2nd round.
Phil Hawes $8200 – Hawes is probably my favorite play on the card at this price. Hawes has improved with every fight and trains at a gym that produces a lot of quality fighters. Hawes can end this in round 1, and I think he will. If he doesn’t, he has his wrestling to fall back on. He’s the better guy here by far.
Just a few dogs I’m looking at, Darrick Minner, Jared Gordon, and Alexei Olynyk. All three guys are live, in my opinion, and I honestly think the betting line with Gordon is a bit ridiculous.
That’s it for me fellas, sorry I couldn’t provide more insight, just a busy week for me.
Best of luck with your lineups, and enjoy the fights!!!
