UFC Fight Night: Hamburg (Germany)

My favorite picks in the top range are Manny Bermudez, Nad Narimani, Marcin Tybura, and Glover Teixeira. My favorite options for cash games across the slate are Manny Bermudez, Bartosz Fabinski, Corey Anderson and Vitor Miranda. Lastly, my low-cost top tournament plays are Jeremy Kimball and David Zawada.

DraftKings contests for this event will lock on Sunday morning, July 21th, at 7:30 AM PST/ 10:30 AM EST so make sure you have your lineups set before then.

Top Tier Fighter
Manny Bermudez ($9,200)
Manny Bermudez is a great cash game play if he can get the finish against Davey Grant. Bermudez has a nearly 90% finish rate in 11 fights. Eight of his 9 wins have come by way of submission while Grant is 10-3 having lost all three of his professional fights by way of submission.

Bermudez looked stellar in his debut against a game Albert Morales. In that fight, he was able to secure a second-round submission win. Bermudez probably won't return value if this fight goes all three rounds, so if you do roster him in cash games you're hoping he gets the 1st or 2nd round sub win. (Cash & GPP)

Also, consider Marcin Tybura ($9,000) who's game log history may deter other players from rostering him while he still has huge upside for a 1st or 2nd round KO/TKO over Stefan Struve. (GPP)

Mid Tier Fighter
Justin Ledet ($8,300)
Justin Ledet makes his fourth Octagon appearance on Sunday and he's fighting a stout Aleksandar Rakic. Both of these men throw heavy leather so I think you have to have exposure to this fight in GPPs.

Ledet is the superior grappler and I expect him to have a solid advantage on the ground. Rakic showed really good takedown defense in his debut so it won't be easy for Ledet, however, I think he is the more dynamic fighter. (GPP)

Also, consider Corey Anderson ($7,800) for cash games due to his huge wrestling upside and Bartosz Fabinkski ($7,800) for the same reason. (Cash)

Low Tier Fighter
Mauricio Rua ($7,500)
Shogun Rua is fighting a tall glass of water in Anthony Smith, however, I think he's the more efficient fighter. This bout has the chance of ending at any time due to a big strike from either man.

Rua is riding a three-fight win streak against game opponents whereas Smith has been fighting lower level competition. I would recommend exposure to each because I don't expect it to go the full five rounds. My pick is Shogun to win in the 4th round after Smith gasses. (GPP)

Also, consider Vitor Miranda ($7,400) for cash games due to his durability (and KO upside) and David Zawada ($6,800) for tournament contests (11 KO/TKOs with a 16-3 record).
