UFC 277 DraftKings Picks, Fantasy UFC

UFC London DraftKings Picks, Fantasy UFC

Last week’s UFC London was not fun to watch, nor was it kind to our DraftKings lineup. Luckily the UFC is back again this weekend with another pay-per-view offering – UFC 277 from Dallas, Texas. Here is a UFC 277 DraftKings lineup that will hopefully get us back into the cash this week. Let’s go!

UFC 277 DraftKings Roster, Fantasy UFC

Michael Morales – $9,500

UFC 277 DraftKings Picks, Fantasy UFC

The big addition to my UFC 277 DraftKings roster this week is welterweight prospect, Michael Morales. In his UFC debut, he posted 117.8 fantasy points in his first-round dismantling of Trevin Giles. This week he gets a fighter 10 years his senior, Adam Fugitt, who is making his UFC debut on short notice. Morales should be good for another triple-digit performance for us, making him worth his hefty price.

Alexandre Pantoja – $8,700

I’ll drop down to the flyweight rank next and pick up veteran Alexandre Pantoja. He’s been an elite 125-pounder for years now and has turned back all prospects the UFC have fed to him. This week he gets Alex Perez, a man who has been on the shelf since November of 2020 and who struggles to cut down to flyweight. I like Pantoja to win this fight in the best of circumstances – even more with Perez being rusty.

Matthew Semelsberger – $8,600

Matthew Semelsberger has had some massive fantasy point fights in his young UFC career thus far. In three out of his first four fights, he posted 103, 126, and 126 points. That’s the type of production I’m looking for from him this week against Alex Morono, who ‘Semi the Jedi’ should probably have an advantage over in every aspect of the fight. Use the Force, Matthew.

Derrick Lewis – $8,000

UFC 277 DraftKings Picks, Fantasy UFC

I’m not ready to write off Derrick Lewis yet. He may be the gatekeeper of the UFC heavyweight division, but he’s very good at that job. And I don’t think Sergei Pavlovich is good enough to get past that gate. Lewis is a boom or bust pick, but when he lands his big boom he lands big fantasy points for those who have him rostered. Which will be us this weekend.

Blood Diamond – $7,400

I’m willing to take a flyer on Mike Mathetha, aka Blood Diamond, this week in the curtain jerker against Orion Cosce. He’s still extremely young in his MMA career and earned 0.5 points in his UFC debut (oof), but he’s a talented kickboxer from a great camp. I think he could have what it takes to handle Cosce this week, who also is 0-1 in the UFC.

Kai Kara-France – $7,300

Finally, I love the price tag attached to Kai Kara-France this week for his interim flyweight championship fight against Brandon Moreno. Sure, Moreno beat him when they fought each other in December of 2019, but KKF’s grappling has really improved since that fight. And Kara-France is one of the hardest hitters in the 125-pound division, capable of big fantasy point performances – he put up 107 and 119 points three and two fights ago, respectively.
