UFC 270: Ngannou  vs. Gane | DraftKings + FanDuel MMA DFS Picks

Top-End Picks 

Jack Della Maddalena | DraftKings: $9,200, FanDuel: $22

Maddalena has 12 professional fights in his career, in which he has a 10-2 record. He tasted both of his defeats early on in his career and is coming off a decision victory over Ange Loosa in September. Maddalena is an extremely talented prospect, with solid striking skills and big power in his hands. In fact,  Maddalena has ended nine fights in less than two rounds each, eight of them via knockout. For MMA DFS today, Maddalena is a strong GPP play due to his finishing abilities. Awesemo’s projections give Maddalena 74% win odds with a 50% chance for a knockout.

Mid-Priced Picks

Ciryl Gane | DraftKings: $8,400, FanDuel: $18

Gane is certainly a different breed of heavyweight. He made his UFC debut in August 2019 and has been dominant over the past two years, with seven consecutive wins over the likes of Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Alexander Volkov and Derrick Lewis. Gane has four wins via knockout, three via submission and three via decision. For UFC DFS purposes today, Gane is a good play due to his price tag, which he could pay off handily with an early finish. Awesemo’s projections give Gane 59% win odds with a 36% chance for a knockout.

Value Picks

Deiveson Figueiredo | DraftKings: $7,700, FanDuel: $14

Figueiredo was on a tear, winning four fights in a row and successfully defended the belt against Alex Perez, before the meetings with Brando Moreno. Figueiredo has nine wins via knockout, eight via submission and three via decision. The quick turnaround in the first fight could have played a role in both fighters not being completely prepared. In their second fight, I expect Figueiredo’s weight cut was a huge factor in the outcome. I picked Moreno to win in the UFC 270 Fight Preview. However, Figueiredo looked awesome at weigh-ins and taking a few shots on him in your DFS lineups today could pay off nicely at $7,700. Awesemo’s projections give Figueiredo 38% win odds.

Andre Fialho | DraftKings: $7,100, FanDuel: $10

Fialho is an exciting fighter, with solid boxing skills and nasty combinations that can cause problems for his opponents. He will walk his opponents down, with sharp combinations and looks for the knockout shot with precise accuracy. That said, this is a risky play considering he is facing Michel Pereira. However, at $7,100 and given Fialho’s skillset and power, it could pay off nicely for DFS and give you some leverage over the field if Fialho’s ownership is low. Awesemo’s projections Fialho give 28% win odds.
