For this UFC card, I highlighted the ‘Top Play’ to begin building your lineups around and a key value play that will free up a little bit of cash. There is a lot of unknown and little-known fighters that Steve and I discussed at length on our podcast, so please do yourself a favor and check out our podcast as well as Steveâ€™s article. We will also be in the Discord chat throughout the weekend, so feel free to run some ideas by us.
Steve and I broke down each fight in great detail on the podcast Wednesday night and gave some insight on what to look for in our articles going forward. Steve and I seemed to be on the same page on a majority of these fights on Saturday morning so it would be beneficial to hear our breakdowns prior to constructing your lineups before the early morning fight card.
If you have any questions or ideas that you would like to see on the podcast or in the article contact me on twitter: @tyslice23.
SONG YADONG ($9100)
Coming into this fight as one of the top prospects in the Asian market, the UFC offered up a meatball for Yadong to get a relatively easy win against on Saturday morning. Yadong is currently 2-0 in the UFC with both wins coming by way of stoppage, both scoring over 100 points on DraftKings. I see no reason that anything would change given the fact that Yadong is taking a pretty significant step down in competition by fighting Morales. Morales, who is taking this fight on short notice, comes into this fight fresh off a win to a 3-4 fighter in Belabor but prior to that he lost on the Dana White Contenderâ€™s series by submission in a fight that he was -320 to win. I personally feel that Yadong is the better fighter standing and on the mat but he has a relatively easy path to victory taking this fight to the ground and submitting Morales.
