We have an incredible DraftKings slate to look through! First, before we get into the plays, let's ensure we lock in the event details so we don't miss out on any action. This event occurs Saturday, August 12th, 2023, at the Apex, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The prelims will kick things off at 7 pm Eastern and the main card at 10 pm Eastern. Here are the core plays that I plan to use with my DraftKings lineups;
Terrance McKinney vs. Mike Breeden
A lightweight fight and we have McKinney where he was submitted two weeks ago. Breeden is looking for a UFC win after his first two fights. McKinney is a massive favorite. McKinney has massive power and he can grapple. The cardio is the downfall for McKinney. We haven't seen Breeden in a year. The hands are nice for Breeden and have some pop. McKinney is going to need to wrestle but cardio is always an issue for McKinney. McKinney will need to rush Breeden quickly like in his old ways to win this fight and $9,200 on DraftKings I am taking the risk based on our spend-up options.
Francis Marshall vs. Isaac Dulgarian
Featherweight fight! Marshall is coming off a loss while Dulgarian is making his UFC debut. Marshall likes to push the pace and has nice takedowns. The striking is okay for Marshall but he has some pop. Dulgarian is a great prospect and has fantastic striking. The wrestling is quick for him and this is going to be a wrestling affair. Marshall nows the UFC game though compared to Dulgarian. This is a close fight and we need a cheap option in Dulgarian despite with this being split. I am taking Dulgarian at $7,700 on DraftKings.
Juliana Miller vs. Luana Santos
Flyweight fight on our hands! Miller is coming off a loss but she is the Ultimate Fighter champion. Santos is coming off a couple of wins out of LFA making her UFC debut. Miller is all over the place striking but she has wrestling. Miller is still trying to learn in the fighting aspect. Miller is learning as time goes coming off a massive loss. Santos has grappling and is okay on the feet. Santos has the better game plan and knows how to come into this fight handling business at the DraftKings price tag of $8,300.
Vicente Luque vs. Rafael dos Anjos
The main event! Welterweight fight! Luque is coming off a knockout loss while Anjos is coming off a submission win. Luque is a good striker and has amazing takedown defense. Anjos has the experience edge and is a former champion. Anjos has grappling and the striking is nice for him. Grappling is the key for Anjos in this fight. I am loving Anjos in this fight at the DraftKings price tag of $8,200.
