Now I know you may think this is the area where we breakdown every fighter and tell you their life story and all about their last 5 fights and all that other blah blah blah info, Buuuuuutttttt NO!! Sorry, we don’t need to fluff it up and leave you with 15 minutes worth of garbage to read to fill our page, instead we are going to give you our #1 lock of the night and then you are free to grab our Core Picks below!

Ok, so our #1 lock for this slate as far as DFS is concerned is going to be Niklas Stolze. Fans can expect an exciting scrap on Saturday night between Stolze and Emeev as both fighters are fast in their hand movements as well as on the ground. Stolze comes into this fight with a 12-3 record and he still hasn’t been finished. Each of his three losses has been by decision. Coming into this fight Stolze has won four fights in a row including his last fight against Omar Jesus Santana in April of 2019 and that win was by decision by Stolze. Stolze has won 12 fights, four by knockout, five by submission, and three decisions. I think Stolze has potential to land the more devastating strikes though and with being a huge underdog on this card according to Vegas for whatever reason, I think he is the perfect GPP play as ownership should be very low and I think Stolze can rack up a ton of points with significant strikes, advances and a few takedowns. Lock Niklas Stolze in as your first pick!!

Annnnddddd NOW! The moment you have been waiting for….
