Road To UFC Singapore: Semi-Finals Preview

That week off was both brutal and refreshing, but we are back for the layover card that is UFC Vegas 61. This event takes place at the Apex Center, but is rumored to be privately rented out by Mark Zuckerburg and friends, so no media or fans will be allowed in the...

Vegas baby here we come! Apex central!

Mayra Bueno Silva vs Stephanie Egger

First fight and here we go into the Apex! This is going to be a close fight to be honest. The grappling is there for Egger and her favorite style to fight. DraftKings priced this fight right in the middle of the $8,000 range. Silva on the other hand is a powerful boxing fighter. Silva will be fast on the feet and have amazing volume. This is going to be a style fight. Egger has put in the work and I think the $8,000 price tag is sneaky in large field tournaments. 

Cory McKenna vs Miranda Granger

Interesting fight. Granger has not fought in over a year and Yoder took Granger down multiple times. Granger is all over the place and now fighting a highly touted prospect in McKenna. The UFC is trying to give McKenna a lay up fight in my opinion. The price tag of McKenna is high and just okay to me.

Jason Witt vs Josh Quinlan

The Vanilla Gorilla against a DWCS fight winner. Quinlan has massive power in his hands and quick on his feet. That’s the reason why I am all over Quinlan here with the knockout upside against Witt who is known to be knocked out a ton. Witt has low upside and don’t like his chances here. I am loving the Quinlan price tag at $8,600 to get the job done in this fight. 

Terrance McKinney vs Erik Gonzalez

This fight is going to be a battle! Erik is coming off a bad loss against Jim Miller. McKinney is the massive favorite and he’s been a highlight reel every fight. Erik is a dynamic fighter with pop in his hands. McKinney has hands but is a great grappler to get the fight down to the ground. McKinney is going to want to come back in a huge way after losing the last fight. McKinney is the massive favorite and comes in at a $9,500 price tag which worries me because of the battle this can be. McKinney needs a finish to get pay off the price tag.

Bryan Battle vs Takashi Sato

Ultimate Fighter Battle is rising up in the ranks. Battle is physically a fighter that has the tools to win this fight. Sato is coming off of two losses despite having knockout wins under his name. I like the price tag of Battle but rather pay $100 less for Quinlan. I do like Battle to get the job done though overall. 

Ariane Lipski vs Priscila Cachoeira

Both fighters are coming off a win so here we go. Cachoeira is a decent fighter who has nice power with volume. Lipski has the grappling skills and can hang on the feet overall. Lipski should be able to get the job done on the feet and a nice middle of the range option on DraftKings.

Sam Alvey vs Michael Oleksiejczuk

Someone please tell me how Sam Alvey is still in the UFC? I’m waiting. Alvey is on a 7 fight losing streak, repeating 7 fight losing streak. Alvey is a wild fighter that is prime to lose a fight by the way he plays defense. Michael should handle this fight with ease and he’s the massive favorite. The price tag on DraftKings is well worth it with his fighting style and can get the finish. 

Brogan Walker vs Julianna Miller

Ultimate Fighter Championship! This is going to be a nice fight. Miller is a beast on the ground and steaming with confidence. Walker has nice fights on her record. Miller will want to take this to the ground and attempt to get a submission win. I think Miller can take this fight and at $8,300 it is not my favorite option. 

Mohammed Usman vs Zac Pauga

The rematch from Tuff Enough! This was a battle on the show and there will be blood! Usman has great power and at a $7,900 price tag is rather interesting. Pauga is a powerful fighter and has better accuracy on the feet compared to Usman. Pauga is better on the feet and has the volume to land his strikes rather than Usman. 

Augusto Sakai vs Serghei Spivac

Big boy fight! Spivac is coming off a good win. Sakai is on a three fight losing streak by getting knocked out. The chin worries me with Sakai’s defense. Spivac has the upside to knock out Sakai and can even grapple. The confidence and defense is the biggest worry for Sakai which is why Spivac can take this fight. I like Spivak as a GPP option that is a nice fill in for lineups. 

Vincete Luque vs Geoff Neal

The CO Main Event! Neal is coming off a win while Luque just took a loss. Neal has been all over the place though with his record. Neal is known for his striker and has the striking to handle any fight. Luque is going to come in extremely motivated, wanting a win. Luque and Neal will want to fight on their feet while keeping it there. This fight will be going back and forth which is why I like the DraftKings upside out of both fighters. I am liking Luque if he can handle the knockout power and handle it from Neal. Luque will have to push the pace but I am liking both sides of this fight. 

Thiago Santos vs Jamahal Hill

The Main Event! Santos is coming off a loss but he has power to knockout anyone in the cage. Santos is all over the place now since coming back from surgery which is worrisome. Santos with his defense is sketchy at times. Hill is a fighter that is full of confidence wanting to fight anyone. The DraftKings price is high for Hill but is beyond worth it to me. The defense will be lacking for Santos and HIll can pursue any striking output in this fight. Hill will push the pace so quickly that Santos will not be able to hang. 


Core four picks for the DK slate!

  • Oleksiejczuk 
  • Quinlan 
  • Luque
  • Hill
