UFC is back in action tonight as we have UFC Fight Night 172 at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas that starts at 7:00 PM tonight.
Let’s take a look at our DraftKings lineup!
Kicking off our lineup, we are going to be paying up for both Julia Avila & Merab Dvalishvili who both come in as heavy favorites in their fights.
I’m not expecting either fighter to end their fight early, but I think both will be able to gather up some solid points with significant strikes and both will soon get KO’s by the end of the 2nd round.
We’re also going to pay up for Mariya Agapova who will be up against Hannah Cifers who will be fighting for the 2nd time in just a few weeks after suffering a submission loss to Mackenzie Dern in late May. Agapova is going to have a huge height and reach advantage over Cifers who is stepping up in weight class to take this fight and I think she will be able physically dominate this fight and will get a KO.
The rest of the lineup is going to be some value picks, but I believe Cynthia Calvillo is going to be a popular option as the main fight on this card vs. Jessica Eye. I think this fight is going to go the distance and be close, but I think Calvillo will be able to get a few takedowns and will pile up points over five rounds with solid significant strike numbers.
Rounding out our lineup, we’re going to go with Zarrukh Adashev & Christian Aguilera.
Adashev is taking his fight agianst Tyson Nam on short notice, but I think that plays into our advantage her as he is solid fighter against Nam, who in my opinion is nothing more than average. Adashev comes from a kickboxing background and as I’m not overly concerned about Nam’s ability to do a lot of damage, I think Adashev at worse piles up some points and wins this one by decision.
Christian Aguilera comes into his UFC debut against as an underdog, however, I think he has some of the best value on the slate in his match-up agianst Anthony Ivy who also will be making his UFC debut tonight. Ivy has some great knock-out power, however, Aguilera is more of a technical fighter who also has some power himself as 9 of his 13 professional fights have come by KO. Aguilera will need to avoid what I imagine will be an aggressive Anthony Ivy coming out of the gates, however, I think Aguilera has a decent chance to pull the upset in this one and is worth the chance at this price point.
