UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs Hooker Preview: Odds and Picks for Every Fight

Saturday is sort of upon us, which implies time for some extra UFC motion! This week the UFC brings us a mediocre card topped with a really not mediocre fundamental occasion – UFC Combat Night time: Poirier vs Hooker. The primary occasion options prime light-weight contenders – and heavy hitters – Dustin Poirier and Dan Hooker. Ought to be hearth.

Now to the matter at hand – drafting ourselves a profitable workforce on Draft Kings for this occasion. You may see my playing recommendation for each combat on the cardboard proper right here – now for my fantasy picks.

 

Khama Worthy – $7,300

‘The Loss of life Star’ is the highest common fantasy level earner on this card, pulling in 110.5 factors in his UFC debut knockout of Devonte Smith. I like Worthy in his matchup this Saturday towards ‘Violent Bob Ross’ Luis Pena, additionally. Whereas Pena could have a measurement and attain benefit, and is a greater wrestler, he vows to face within the center and commerce photographs with Worthy, which most likely isn’t his finest technique. Worthy is worthy (ha) of the worth play right here.

 

Brendan Allen – $9,200

We’re going all in on ‘All In” Brendan Allen (I’m filled with the puns immediately – look out). Allen averages the second-most fantasy factors per outing at 108. He’s obtained a submission and a TKO in his two UFC fights, and has completed 13 of his 14 vanquished opponents (5 KOs plus eight submissions). This well-roundedness will serve him nicely towards final minute alternative (and UFC newcomer) Kyle Daukaus, who’s strictly a submission specialist (9-Zero report with eight submissions).

 

Sean Woodson – $8,800

Someway the 6’2″ Woodson cuts all the way down to 145 kilos for his fights, so the primary motive he’s price selecting up is his immense measurement benefit in each combat. He’ll have 4 inches of attain on Saturday’s opponent, Julian Erosa. Moreover, Erosa simply took this combat earlier this week, and is a journeyman who has been lower from the UFC twice beforehand. Search for ‘The Sniper’ to earn you good fantasy factors with a stoppage by way of strikes.

 

Youssef Zalal – $8,000

‘The Moroccan Satan’ had a really spectacular UFC debut, beating prime prospect Austin Lingo on solely every week’s discover. In that combat he took down Lingo six occasions. His opponent on Saturday, Jordan Griffin, has poor takedown protection, so Zalal shouldn’t have any drawback getting the combat to the mat if he chooses. And if as a substitute he chooses to maintain it standing, his putting numbers are far superior to Saturday’s opponent.

 

Philipe Lins – $8,300

Lins had a tough UFC debut, dropping to Andrei Arlovski. However his resume exhibits he’s able to way more, which I believe he’ll present this weekend towards Tanner Boser. 12 of his 14 wins have come by way of stoppage (eight KOs, 4 submissions), so he has the abilities to get us some large factors towards Boser.

 

Takashi Sato – $8,400

Sato can be dealing with a UFC newcomer – Ramiz Brahimaj – who hasn’t fought in over a yr, so he’ll have the sting there. Whereas Brahimaj appears for submissions to earn his wins, Sato has stable wrestling protection and dynamite in his fingers. Potential for an enormous KO win right here – and massive factors for us.
