MMA DFS Playbook: UFC Fight Night Apex
Mike Alexander brings you his top plays and fight breakdowns for Saturday's UFC Fight Night DFS slate.
The UFC is burning through it’s available talent after an initial boon of fighters raring to get in the cage in May. This card is the result of that. Still, DFS doesn’t care about fighter quality and there’s money on the line. We have three late replacements (Cifers, Adashev, Lopez). That only adds to a dearth of desirable underdogs. It’s just a hard week to build lineups. Come off the top range and get as many mid-priced fighters in as you can. Update: Jordan Griffin vs. Darrick Minner has been pulled off the card. Minner pulled out due to health concerns over cutting weight.
