Weili’s opponent, Carla Esparza, is a strong wrestler who relies on her aggressive wrestling. Esparza says she only scored about two significant strikes a minute in a UFC fight. That’s about 1/3 of her Weili scoring about 6 critical strikes per minute. Weili needs to have a big edge in hitting in this matchup and Esparza needs to be successful in her grappling offensively to win this fight.
It could be a tough matchup for Weili’s physically strong Esparza. Weili is her one of the strongest fighters in the women’s division. UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou recently posted a video of Weili snatching one of her Ngannou’s legs and lifting him off the ground, showing her incredible strength compared to her division. I was.
If Esparza is unable to consistently defeat Weili, Weili is well positioned to take advantage of her superior striking to beat Esparza on her feet. , which is a red flag for her hitting metrics. Weili’s impressive volume enhances her score with her excellent fantasy.She’s also a safe play, reflected in the -340 moneyline DraftKings SportsbookSince this fight is 5 rounds, it may take an extra 10 minutes to generate your fantasy score.
Several factors make Dustin Poirier a compelling fantasy play at UFC 281. Poirier has about 5.6 significant strikes in his minute. Poirier also has pop, which could result in a quick finish against opponent Michael Chandler. Chandler has a stiff jaw and he has officially been beaten three times in his last three fights in the UFC. Chandler was also dropped by an aging Tony Ferguson in a recent fight, but Chandler can get back up fast enough to avoid being officially classified as a knockdown in official fight stats. I made it.
Poirier could very realistically win this fight with a first-round knockout, potentially earning over 100 DraftKings Fantasy Points (DKFP) as a result. Poirier has scored his 100 DKFP or more in 13 of his last 14 wins.
Adesanya is a tall, long kickboxer who enjoys a significant reach and range advantage over most of his middleweight opponents. Adesanya uses his length to position himself just outside his opponent’s hitting range, making it difficult to land his shots cleanly on Adesanya. Adesanya then punished his opponent with excellent striking from long range, his takedowns his defense and his defensive grappling was enough to fend off the grapplers he faced at middleweight.
Alex Pereira presents significant matchup issues for Adesanya, so Adesanya has more fantasy risks than usual. Pereira can match most of Adesanya’s advantages at middleweight. can’t position himself outside Pereira’s hitting range, as he has enjoyed in most middleweight bouts. This is dangerous against explosive opponents like Pereira. This could be his Adesanya’s biggest challenge so far in the middleweight division.
Adesanya has a huge advantage in UFC experience and UFC title fight experience. Adesanya said in the UFC that he has fought eight five-round title fights, something Pereira has yet to experience. Pereira has only seven MMA fights in total. His title fight experience and his five rounds of MMA fight experience could make the difference in this fight between his two fighters who are very evenly matched in terms of skill.
If Adesanya can secure safety early on and let Pereira down the pace before taking over the championship round, he could use his precision striking to position himself to win the second half of the fight. increase.
