We had a tricky card to navigate last week and this card is even trickier. The top of the card has two heavyweight fights favored to finish so they are obvious GPP fights. I am not a huge fan of the top four fighters on this card at these prices because I don’t see many finishes there. Three of the top four highest priced fighters are women not favored to finish their fights.

The Main Event: Curtis Blaydes $8.7K vs Francis Ngannou $7.5K

This is a rematch, and I expect it to end with Curtis Blaydes as the winner. Ngannou won the 1st fight via a 2nd round doctor stoppage, as Blaydes’ eye was closed shut. Ngannou is coming off back to back loses and is a GPP play for his punching power. This time around I expect Blaydes to rely heavily on his wrestling and put Ngannou on his back as soon as possible, then work his ground and pound. Blaydes has very good elbows from top control and is very good at earning DK points by advancing his position in addition to the takedowns I expect. Blaydes previous UFC wins have scored very well on Draftkings and if this goes five rounds, we can see a score in the 120s or 130s if he dominates with top control. I highly recommend him in GPPs of all types and would be comfortable with him in cash.
