Saturday night brings another UFC card headlined by a Heavyweight main event, this time with Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Ciryl Gane capping off the night.

Here's a look at the top FanDuel UFC picks for UFC Vegas 20 on Saturday.

UFC Fantasy Picks for FanDuel: UFC Vegas 20

Ciryl Gane ($22): You're generally going to want to play someone from any 5-round fight, but that's especially true here. A Heavyweight with finishing ability like Gane gives you plenty of upside from a potential first-round finish, but his high output (5.61 significant strikes landed per minute) also means if this happens to go to a decision, he should rack up plenty of fantasy points across the 25 minutes.

Angela Hill ($21): At -400, Angela Hill is the biggest favorite on the card by a solid margin. Hill has landed over 100 significant strikes in five separate UFC fights, which is tied for the third-most for anyone in UFC history. She's averaged 5.70 landed per minute across her UFC career. Being such a huge favorite with such strong output gives her the highest floor on the slate.

Nikita Krylov ($8): Nikita Krylov is a big +285 underdog, but sitting tied for the lowest salary on the card it becomes really tough to ignore his upside — especially when we're paying up for both Gane and Hill. The salary prices in that ugly betting line, but if he does pull off the upset it won't likely be in a fight that goes to the judges. Krylov has 27 pro MMA wins, and just 1 came by decision, while 11 were by KO/TKO and 15 were by submission. On the flip side, Magomed Ankalaev's lone loss also came by submission.
