Boys and Girls, MMA is BACK and we couldn’t be anymore excited for this weekend as we have a full slate of great match-ups!!
UFC Fight Night will take place at the brand new UFC Apex facility inside a 25-foot Octagon that’s five feet smaller than the standard 30-foot cage and hopefully this means more hitting and less dancing.
The 12-bout card is scheduled to begin with prelims at 5 p.m. ET and the main card beginning at 8 p.m. Now let’s get into the Odds for the slate and our CORE picks!!
- Jim Miller vs. Roosevelt Roberts
- Belal Muhammad vs. Lyman Good
- Raquel Pennington vs. Marion Reneau
- Josh Emmett vs. Shane Burgos
- Curtis Blaydes vs. Alexander Volkov – MAIN EVENT
- Austin Hubbard vs. Max Rohskopf
- Roxanne Modafferi vs. Lauren Murphy
- Frank Camacho vs. Justin Jaynes
- Cortney Casey vs. Gillian Robertson
- Marc-Andre Barriault vs. Oskar Piechota
- Tecia Torres vs. Brianna Van Buren
- Bobby Green vs. Clay Guida – FEATURE FIGHT
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 Lyman Good. Fans can expect an exciting scrap on Saturday night between Good and Muhammad as both fighters are fast in their hand movements as well as on the ground. Good lands 5.32 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.46 significant strikes per minute. I think Good has potential to land the more devastating strikes though and with being a slight underdog on this card according to Vegas for whatever reason, I think he is the perfect GPP play as ownership should be a little lower and I think Good can rack up a ton of points with significant strikes, advances and a few takedowns. Lock Lyman Good in as your first pick!!
Annnnddddd NOW! The moment you have been waiting for….
