UFC 210 Fantasy Picks
UFC 210 Fantasy Picks
Here we go! Here are your UFC 210 Fantasy Picks! UFC 210 will be the biggest Light Heavyweight championship fight that doesn’t feature Jon Jones. UFC 210 is a high-talent card stacked from top to bottom with a lot of interesting matchups. This is a great card to kick off the second quarter of the year. Weidman vs. Mousasi has fireworks written all over it, Team Alpha Male is showing up with a few strong prospects, and there are numerous newcomers that are chomping at the bit to prove their mettle on the biggest stage MMA has to offer.
Here are some fighters we like
$9,200 Kamaru Usman “The Nigerian Nightmare”
He is a tough, durable, high-volume fighter. He has outstanding endurance and conditioning even as the fight goes on. He’s always looking for a takedown and is slightly above average with his accuracy in getting them. His strikes aren’t showstoppers but he does look for the finish. He’s expensive, but he will be worth the price.
$8,200 Jan Blachowicz
Jan is a powerful striker with good endurance for his weight class. He has devastating leg kicks that can render his opponents limping within a round. Upside: Endurance and volume. Downside: Can be susceptible to very strong wrestlers.
$8,800 Josh Emmett
A relatively new addition to the UFC but not wet behind the ears by any means. Josh fights out of Team Alpha Male, home of current bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt. Josh trains day in, day out with some of the best coaches and talent that any camp has access to. In his debut fight he showcased his toughness by fighting through a broken toe, winning the fight, and fighting shortly thereafter. He can take his opponent down and rain continuous punches on them. Definitely worth adding.
$8,100 Anthony “Rumble” Johnson
Big man can punch. Known as one of the, if not the, hardest punchers in the UFC organization, Anthony can turn your lights out with a single strike. In his first fight against Daniel Cormier he rocked DC with an overhead that sent DC stumbling backwards on wobbly legs. Johnson has been training extensively to sharpen his wrestling and submission defense, trying to keep the fight where he is most comfortable. The only variable that has yet to be made known is if he can continue to perform at a high level in the championship rounds.
$7,200 Charles “Da Bronx” Oliveira
Top 8 best submission grapplers in the UFC, and he’s jumping up a weight class. He isn’t cutting much weight, will be able to remain hydrated and healthy, and he’s STILL coming in as a bigger fighter than Will Brooks. He is great at transition submissions, which means rolling from one submission attempt to the next if one is blocked. His downside is he doesn’t have a granite chin, but his opponent isn’t known for having cement fists.
$7,900 Chris “The All-American” Weidman
Weidman is the blue-collar worker of the middleweight division. Goes in, grinds, and comes out on top. He’s on a two-fight losing streak against top-3 opponents (Luke Rockhold and Yoel Romero) but has a great chance to rebound here. His durability and conditioning are second to none. He can keep up a frenetic pace, gun for takedowns, but has power to stop an opponent with a single strike. His workman-like approach will keep the action going and rack up strikes/takedowns.
$8,500 Patrick “The Predator” Cote
Patrick Cote has shown a re-emergence that most 37-year old mixed martial artists aren’t able to do without PED’s. He is 3-1 in his last four fights, two of his wins coming via knockout, and matched up against a generally ill-conditioned Thiago Alves that does not look like the same Alves that fought GSP for the title. Cote can keep up a great pace in later rounds, securing points and possibly even a stoppage.
$9,100 Cynthia Calvillo
Another Team Alpha Male killer, Calvillo excelled in her UFC debut just a short while ago. The thing TAM is best at is demolishing everyone outside of the top-5 of a division. Calvillo is going against a newcomer to the UFC on the main card. Calvillo has the jitters out of the way, is gunning to make a good main card debut impression, and has a serious set of skills to back her up.
$9,400 Miles “Fury“ Jury
Miles is a winner, but not at this price. He has shown he can get beaten up by someone that’s flat-out more aggressive than he is (fight against Donald Cerrone). He hasn’t fought much in the last year, and against an up and comer like de la Torre, Miles has too big of a question mark over his head to justify dropping $9,400 on him. No. Thank. You.
