UFC Fight Night 64 goes down from Krakow, Poland on Saturday.
UFC Fight Night 64 DraftKings Preview
A long-anticipated rematch between heavyweight’s Gabriel Gonzaga and Mirko Cro Cop is set for the main event. The rest of the card is filled with names that many might not know.
Check out our DraftKings picks below.
Joanne Calderwood ($11,700) – Calderwood is the most expensive fighter on the lineup, but for good reason. There is no reason for her to lose against Maryna Moroz or even go past the first round. After a significant victory in Poland, JoJo should solidify her status as number one contender in the UFC’s strawweight division. She may cost a lot, but expect a lot of points out of her as well.
Sergio Moraes ($11,300) – Another expensive fighter is Moraes, however he is such a favorite that I think he is well worth it. The Brazilian is 2-1 inside the Octagon, with his two most recent outings being submission victories. His opponent is a newcomer and “The Panther” should be able to have his way to earn a victory inside the 15-minute time frame.
Pawl Pawlak ($9,000) – Pawlak lost his UFC debut by unanimous decision last May, but looked very promising coming into the fight. He was riding a 10-fight winning streak, with nine of those coming via stoppage. He is facing a very tough Sheldon Westcott, who also lost his UFC debut in the TUF Nations Finale against Elias Theodorou. Westcott is a grinder with a good overall game, but if you need to choose an underdog, Pawlak seems to be the guy to take.
Mirko Cro Cop ($9,200) – Being a PRIDE fan, this one is sort of a fanboy pick. Cro Cop got lit up in his first outing against Gonzaga with his own trademark high kick. He has never lost a rematch in his entire career and could see this one going well in his favor as well. He has seemed very eager to get back in the Octagon against Gonzaga and wipe the original loss from his memory.
