Joanna Jedrzejczyk (Dave Mandel/Sherdog)UFC Fight Night 69: Fantasy MMA Guide Scott Bond June 17, 2015 Events, News, Spotlight DraftKings.com is one of the largest and most recognizable fantasy sports sites on the web. Every day, DraftKings offers a slew of daily fantasy sports games for real money and now that MMA is part of action fight fans have been flocking to the site to try their hand at fantasy MMA. We here at The MMA Corner want to help our readers finish in the money, so every fight week we will offer up tips and advice for putting together your DraftKings Fantasy MMA contest lineups. Before we get into this week’s guide, let’s review the basics of Fantasy MMA. For each contest, participants will be given a $50,000 salary cap to select a five-fighter lineup. The fighter pool will consist of all fighters expected to be competing in the upcoming event. Fighter salaries are determined by their past performances and they have nothing to do with what fighters are actually making. Fighters score points in two ways. First there is move scoring; +0.5 for significant strikes, +1 for advancing position, +2 for takedowns, +2 for reversals or sweeps and +3 for knockdowns. Then there are fight conclusion bonuses; +100 for a first round win, +70 for a second round win, +50 for a third round win, +40 for a fourth round win, +40 for a fifth-round win and +25 for a decision win. Fight scoring will be based on FightMetric statistical data. Winning/placing is based on the total score of your five-fight lineup. UFC Fight Night 69: Jedrzejczyk vs. Penne This Saturday, the Octagon is once again heading back to Germany and it will settle in Berlin this time for UFC Fight Night 69, which will see the Women’s Strawweight Championship being defended when Joanna Jedrzejczyk takes on Jessica Penne in the main event. This event is full of close, tightly contested fights and hopefully these tips will help you pick a winning team this weekend on DraftKings. Value Pick Finding value picks on this card was much harder than recent UFC cards. There are many fights that I think could prove to be upsets when you look at the dollar value of the fighters, so I dug a bit deeper and looked at who I think will stop the fight in the early rounds and not go to a decision. Getting a stoppage is the difference between 100+ points from your pick or only getting 75 points. So taking all of that into consideration, my value pick of the week is Alan Patrick at the price of $9,300. Looking back at his previous fights, it is easy to see Patrick’s striking prowess and power, which is a huge factor in selecting him as well as his opponent, Mairbeck Taisumov. Both of these men are warriors, they like to stand and trade, and I see Patrick being able to stop Taisumov in the first or second round, which will be a big points payout on the undercard for all those who select Patrick. Lock of the Week This week is special and my “Lock of the Week” will be two fighters in the main event. I have Joanna Jedrzejczyk, and on the last fight of the UFC Fight Pass prelims, I have Makwan Amirkhani. After Jedrzejczyk completely dismantled Carla Esparza earlier this year to win the Women’s Strawweight Championship, I see her continuing that domination over Jessica Penne. The striking that Jedrzejczyk possess may be the best in all of the UFC, she is a multiple time Muay Thai World Champion and she has transferred those skills into the Octagon, as seen in her last fight. In her last fight, she won in the second round by KO/TKO but the fight could have been stopped much sooner. I believe that this weekend we will see much of the same with Jedrzejczyk overwhelming her opponent on the feet and getting an early stoppage in the first or second round. When it comes to Makwan Amirkhani’s UFC debut you might call it perfect; he defeated Andy Ogle in the first round by KO/TKO, which was set up by a beautiful flying knee at the start of the round. Amirkhani showed solid striking, finishing ability and no fear of the big stage. Amirkhani will be showcased as he is closing out the UFC Fight Pass prelims, and I think he will want to show the UFC he should be on the main card next time. I foresee Amirkhani standing and trading with Fullen at the beginning of the fight and moving to the ground where he can utilize his Greco-Roman wrestling skills. After getting the quick KO/TKO win in his last outing, I believe that Amirkhani will pick up a submission victory in the first round this Saturday. Good luck with your picks for UFC Fight Night 69 this weekend and let me know what you think about my picks in the comments below or through Twitter @realscottbond.
