UFC London: Volkov vs. Aspinall | DraftKings & FanDuel MMA DFS Picks

Top-End UFC Picks

Paddy Pimblett | DraftKings: $9,400 , FanDuel: $23

Pimblett has a ton of hype coming into this fight, but it is hard to tell how much of it is really proven. That said, his striking defense is in question, after showing how hittable he was in his UFC debut. Pimblett is the former Cage Warriors champion, and had a shaky start in his UFC debut, until catching Luigi Vendramini with a nasty combination putting him to sleep. This fight with Kazula Vargas is not a step up in competition and I fully expect Pimblett will drag Vargas to the mat and finish him early. For UFC DFS, there is some risk playing Pimblett, but the power in his hands and his ability to get this fight to mat should pay off nicely. Awesemo’s MMA projections give Pimblett 81% win odds with a 58% chance for a knockout.

Pimblett was one of the top fighters popping in the Awesemo MMA DFS optimizer projections today. He’s a top UFC Pick for this slate. Check out all of our free fantasy MMA DFS Picks and projections in our DraftKings UFC DFS Cheat Sheet and FanDuel UFC DFS Cheat Sheet.

Ilia Topuria | DraftKings: $9,300 , FanDuel: $22

Topuria has big knockout power in his hands, but throws low volume. He does not want to stand and trade with Jai Herbert in this fight, due to Herbert power and he will have a clear striking advantage. However, Topuria is a strong grappler, although he has not showcased that part of his game due to both finishes in the UFC have coming via knockout. In this fight, I fully expect we see the strong grappling game of Topuria, which leads to an early submission victory over Herbert. For MMA DFS lineups, Topuria is a solid play in all formats. Awesemo’s UFC projections give Topuria 80% win odds with a 58% chance for a knockout.

Mid-Range UFC Picks

Tom Aspinall | DraftKings: $8,300, FanDuel: $18

Aspinall gave high praise to Tyson Fury during UFC London media day, stating that sparring with Fury helped him most mentally and improved his skillset, boxing, and outlook on his career. He will have a speed advantage over Alexander Volkov, but the big question is Aspinall’s cardio. How will he fair if this fight gets out of the second round? All four of Aspinall’s fights have not gone beyond Round 2, and three ended early in the first round. That said, I expect Aspinall’s cardio will be on point, and his preparation for this fight against a veteran of the sport will be top notch. For UFC DFS lineups, Aspinall is a strong play due to his finishing abilities and low price tag on DraftKings. Awesemo’s MMA fantasy projections give Aspinall 54% win odds with a 37% chance for a knockout.

UFC Value Picks

Jack Shore | DraftKings: $7,600, FanDuel: $15

Shore will be a popular MMA DFS play on this slate, due to him coming in on a four-fight winning streak. Timur Valiev will be the Welshman’s toughest challenge of his UFC professional career. Shore is technically sound kickboxer and will need to utilize his kickboxing to slow down Valiev’s attack. He has the higher finishing rate over his career 79%. In contrast, Valiev has a 37% finishing rate.  For MMA DFS, Shore is a risky play, due to the Valiev’s footwork, speed, and dangerous combinations. However, Shore could pay-off nicely with a submission victory at his low-price tag. For MMA DFS, Shore is a risky play, due to the Valiev’s footwork, speed, and dangerous combinations.

Paul Craig | DraftKings: $7,500, FanDuel: $13

Craig is coming into this matchup on a three-fight winning streak, with two knockout wins over Jamahal Hill, Mauricio Rua, and submission over Gadzhimurad Antigulov. He is the underdog in this fight, but a win via submission is not out of the question. Especially, since Nikita Krylov has five losses via submission in his professional career. This will be the toughest opponent Craig has faced in sometime. For MMA Fantasy lineups, Craig is a solid value play, due to his dangerous submission arsenal. Awesemo’s UFC projections give Craig 37% win odds.
