Welcome to The Takedown, UFC fans. Today, we are at the T-Mobile Arena with the final chapter in the trilogy between Dustin Poirier vs Conor McGregor. Here I offer some of my favorite UFC DFS picks for DraftKings and FanDuel UFC lineups with the help Awesemo’s expert UFC DFS projections. So, let’s dig into some MMA DFS picks and analysis for UFC 264: Poirier vs. McGregor III.
MMA DFS Picks: Dustin Poirier vs Conor McGregor
Tai Tuivasa | DraftKings: $8,400, FanDuel: $17
Tai Tuivasa is currently riding a two-fight winning streak, both coming via knockout. I expect his confidence and momentum will help carry Tuivasa to another knockout victory. Both Greg Hardy and Tuivasa will be exchanging heavy bombs until one of them hits the mat. With a price tag of $8,400, Tuivasa is a solid core play due to his knockout ability and high ceiling. Awesemo’s UFC DFS DraftKings and FanDuel Projections give Tuivasa 56% win odds and 36% chance for a knockout.

Stephen Thompson | DraftKings: $8,500, FanDuel: $18
Thompson is a phenomenal striker that uses distance and nasty kicks to pick his opponents apart. I expect his karate-style approach will give Gilbert Burns issues finding his rhythm. That said, Thompson’s elite striking and solid takedown defense should outclass Burns and seal a decision victory. However, do not sleep on Burns if building multiple lineups, he does have paths to seal a victory. Awesemo’s UFC DFS projections 59% win odds.
Dricus Du Plessis | DraftKings: $8,200, FanDuel: $15
Du Plessis claimed titles in both EFC and KSW on his way to the octagon. He is aggressive and will come forward with heavy pressure blitzing his opponents with punches. Du Plessis is coming off of a memorable debut with a spinning backfist knockout over Markus Perez. He has killer instinct with a 100% finish rate, six wins via knockout and nine wins via submission. Awesemo’s UFC DFS projections give Du Plessis 52% win odds with a 37% chance for a knockout.

Yana Kunitskaya | DraftKings: $7,400, FanDuel: $14
Kunitskaya, a former Invicta bantamweight champion, enters the octagon on a two-fight winning streak. She is a well-rounded fighter with her background in Taekwondo and Muay Thai. Kunitskaya is dangerous on the mat, and once she’s in top control, Kunitskaya will advance position and unleash vicious ground and pound. She has seven wins via knockout, one via submission and six via decision. Kunitskaya is a solid value play due to her ceiling and low-price tag. Awesemo’s UFC DFS projections give 47% win odds.
