UFC 252 is in the books and besides the Dodson loss it was a good night for me in DK and I hope you cashed as well. As great of a card that was, UFC Vegas 7 is pretty fuckin bad. 9 guys on the card making their UFC debut and a lot of unknowns. I won’t have many lineups this weekend as this card is looking to me like a lot of chalk, but hopefully a dog or two can come through. On another note, I’m glad DK has made the MMA captain available, it’s a nice change and if you can get a nice underdog as a captain that does well you can do well. Anyways, let’s look at some fighters to target.
Mariya Agapova $9300 – I’ll have Agapova in pretty much every lineup. She should have her way with Dobson and will more than likely get a 1st round finish. She’ll be super popular, but she’ll score over 100.
Dwight Grant 8800 – Grant was supposed to take on UFC debutante Jared Gooden, but Gooden pulled out due to injury. Grant now takes on Calen Born, who has fought in Shamrock FC and under the LFA banner. Born is 7-1 but he’s taking a huge step up in competition. Grant is a finisher, and I think he has a good shot to get a 1st or 2nd round KO. I’m on Grant, some may take a shot on the dog but I’ll pass.
Ovince Saint Preux $7900 – OSP opened a favorite, and some money has come in on Menifield, and now OSP is the dog. Ok then, what the hell has Menifield done to justify this line move? Is it the loss to Devin Clark? OSP has too much experience, and although his standup is awkward, he has way more paths to victory. Menifield has a legit shot at getting a KO in the first half of the round, afterwards it will be OSP grinding against the cage and wearing Menifield down. I think OSP can get a late 2nd round sub and I can see another Von Preux choke coming as well. OSP is one of those guys that when you count him out he comes up big.
Munhoz/Edgar – The winner scores well here so I’ll have either one in a lineup. Munhoz is capable of knocking Edgar out but I’m not counting out a vet like Frankie, he’s too talented. It wouldn’t shock me one bit to see Frankie take Munhoz into the deep waters and get a win. Should be a fun fight.
