Must Have Favourites
1. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza – How can you not pick this man when his salary is just $11,900. His opponent, Chris Camozzi is a late replacement for Yoel Romero, but this fight already happened once before. In the first encounter, Jacare got the first round stoppage and we honestly find it hard to believe their second match-up goes any differently. We just hope Camozzi was guaranteed more than one fight for stepping in as a late replacement here!
2. Cub Swanson – Swanson is a pretty decent sized betting favourite and he was also a leg of our free betting tip. You can read that post for more info as to why we think Swanson will win, but the additional factor that makes him even better for fantasy is he finishes a lot of his fights! At $10,300, you have to have Swanson on many of your Draft Kings teams!
1. Takeya Mizugaki – We think the betting line is off on this fight. Not that we necessarily think Mizugaki wins more than he loses against Aljamin Sterling, but we do think surviving to a decision is the most likely outcome for him in this fight. Surviving to a decision with a salary of $8,500 is really not too bad in a fight that likely stays on the feet. Use Mizugaki as your “salary relief” guy and hope for a huge upset!
2. Ovince St Preux – We lean ever so slightly towards St Preux in his fight against Pat Cummins. He is a very slight underdog on the betting boards, but consider also the fact that 13 of his 17 fights have been won inside the distance and he begins to look like a great choice for your fantasy team. At $9,400, he comes at a decent price tag too!
That’s it for our UFC on Fox 15: Machida vs Rockhold fantasy preview! We’ll leave it up to you to pick your last fantasy team member for your Draft Kings teams.
