What a card last weekend….wow. I had an excellent weekend personally and hoped you all did the same. Brendon Allen and a few of our dogs came through…happy with the outcome. The unfortunate result for Chris Weidman, and I hope he has a speedy recovery; you hate to see it. As far as Usman is concerned, the guy is only getting better, and it will be a long time before someone takes the title from him.
On to this weekend. It’s not the most stacked card, and the number of lineups will be significantly smaller than usual. I can’t go in-depth with any of the fighters I like due to time constraints, but let’s take a quick look at some fighters to target.
There’s no fighter above 9k that I’m interested in, but Gabriel Benitez at $8900 will be a fighter I’ll have in a good chunk of lineups. Jonathan Pierce might be a popular underdog, and people also might overreact to Benitez missing weight by 4.5 pounds. Give me Benitez here. He’s the better all-around guy and is very capable of winning this fight early.
Jiri Prochazka $8300 – I feel many will be on Reyes, but I think Prochazka is the better mixed martial artist with a super awkward style and power that can put anyone’s lights out. He just finds openings, and he’ll have a tremendous reach advantage. Dominick Reyes is skilled, but I think Prochazka finds a way to end the fight In the second round.
Cody Stamann $7200 – I genuinely think Stamann is a live dog on Saturday. Merab Dvalishvilli’s guys have faced the past don’t have the solid wrestling pedigree that Cody Stamann has. Dvalishvilli is the better wrestler but an all-around mixed martial artist? I think it’s Stamann. Dvalishvili will be extremely high-owned due to his past performances, but in the DFS game, you have to be different. I’m taking a shot on Stamann here.
KB Bhullar $7100 – People remember what they last saw from Bhullar. He’s much better than that. I’ll have him in a small amount of lineup, but he can get the job done.
Best of luck this weekend with your lineups; enjoy the fights!
