An absolutely stacked card is upon us on Saturday night. We will dive into our UFC 255 DraftKings fantasy picks in this new series.
There are two titles on the line, with both champions coming in as big favorites. One of those two titleholders will be on our lock list.
There are plenty of fighters to choose from, but with DraftKings, you have to be strategic. We will give you two locks and one underdog pick.
Deiveson Figueiredo ($9,000)
The flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo comes into the bout against Alex Perez as a -270 favorite. This sits him fairly high up in terms of cost, however, he has shown no reason to not pick him. Of his 19 victories, “Daico” has only seen the judges scorecards three times. All of his stoppage victories have either come in the first or second round, which means his point total would be an outstanding value.
Mike Perry ($8,200)
This one is a close fight on paper. Mike Perry sits at a -150 favorite, while Tim Means is a +130 underdog. With everything going on in Perry’s personal life, he will likely step inside the Octagon with a point to prove. He throws absolute bombs, so if he does get the job done, then it’s a complete lock for points.
Ariane Lipski ($7,800)
Ariane Lipski is riding a two-fight winning streak, with a nasty kneebar victory in her last outing. Her ground game has proven to be second to none, that, along with her six knockout victories makes her a serious underdog pick. Her opponent, Antonina Shevchenko, will be fighting in her sister Valentina’s shadow, which could be a make or break mental battle.
After making these three picks your remaining salary would be $25,000, which means an average of $8,333 for each fighter.
UFC 255 goes down on November 21 from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
