    I just dabble in MMA so im probably 100% wrong. The research I did (minimal though it may be) led me to play Niko Price. Is that a drastically bad move?

    If any fight ends up a no contest, my vote is for that one.

    But like you, i only dabble, so don’t listen to me.

    Thanks Clever …

    Haven’t been around much because I haven’t played much DFS lately.

    Doing okay, though ….

    Yourself?

    Not bad, just rolling along trying to figure out which fighter is going to stick me w/0.5 points lol

    No, think he’ll be the most popular underdog since he has high odds value and finish potential.

    Think he’s live – Niko has an uncanny ability to pull wins out of nowhere. It sort of depends on which Pereira shows up as vogaman mentioned earlier in the thread. This more calculated, technical Pereira can make this fight uninteresting for fantasy but if the crowd is going nuts and he reverts back to his crazy somersaulting ways… never know… something wacky could be on the horizon.

    What if I told you we might get a high paced calculated and technical Pereira vs Niko?

    Niko absolutely loves getting punched in the face so this would not surprise me. I am going to throw Pereira in there somewhere so let’s gooooo

    What really matters is do you think he can win by stoppage. Everything else is window dressing more or less in a 3 round fight.

  • thevogaman

    I’ve seen the world on Tuivasa and I’m on Hardy here (and underweight to the fight as a whole). I think Hardy’s going to win a decision with clinch and top control just by being the bigger, stronger man and he might slip onto the optimal by slightly outscoring another underdog.

    Yeah, I think he is the surprise guy with the quick 1st round win out of nowhere. At least I have some solace that noone is saying its a trash pick so far lol. But im pretty much totally new to MMA just playing for fun today.

    Probably cause he’s so hated. Why is he hated as hard as he is?

    The #UFC264 bout between Yu Haozong and Alen Amedovski is canceled due to COVID-19 protocols in Amedovski’s camp, UFC officials told ESPN. The card will go on with 12 fights.

    I literally just finished my five DK lineups and I have Yu in all.

    Time to start over…

    Lmao ya me too. I think they left out the literal translation tho.
    The #UFC264 bout between Yu Haozong and Alen Amedovski is canceled due to the large number of bets coming in on Yu and Vegas told the UFC they couldn’t fight be cause the line was off, UFC officials told ESPN. The card will go on with 12 fights :P

    Yu was the only guy 7,800 and down on DK that I was using. Not sure what to do now.

    Now we watch and see how much ownership remains on the canceled fight in the big DK GPP.

    Honestly (and anyone please argue)

    I think every underdog is incredibly live to win their fights EXCEPT for Moutinho.

    So to me it’s like:

    Live Underdogs

    Moutinho

    From what I’ve learned the two most important things to shoot for are 6-0 and ideally as many stoppages as possible. Even if you don’t flop the 6 best scores you’ll easily have a great night.

    I have a sneaky suspicion that O’Malley is going to show us a sub here. And at +1400 i’m taking it.

    My dog pick is Hall. Too many ways to roll a guy up in a pretzel for a 24 year old fighter to handle.

    Levels.

    Sounds like a 30 for 30 Doc.

    Gosh dang it Hu was one of my most favorite dogs

  • iron_tactics

    O’Malley odds are starting to give me Devonte Smith, Maria Agapova, and Ronda Rousey vibes.
