UFC Fight Night 145: Prague
Mike Alexander breaks down each fight on Saturday's UFC card and gives you his example lineups for DraftKings DFS MMA slate.
We’re back overseas this week with UFC Prague. Things are far less predictable for cards like this. Fighters often have fewer fights, therefore fewer stats, Vegas isn’t as dialed in, and things can get weird with so many fighters traveling. Make sure to note that lineups lock at 11:00 AM ET Saturday.
Thiago Santos is violence incarnate. He’s a high paced striker that is solely focused on ending his opponents night quickly. It’s kind of crazy that he’s fighting on an overseas card while a guy he beat, Anthony Smith, is getting a title shot.It’s hard to know what to make of Jan Blachowicz’s 6-4 UFC record. He’s on a solid four-fight win streak, but anytime he’s fought top competition he’s come up short. Blachowicz is solid striker despite a low output. In my opinion, he could lean on his wrestling more, as well.
What a banger this should be. Santos always brings the heat and Blackowicz is no cupcake. I actually think the guy that wins is the first to mix in some wrestling....
