The major sports are starting to put together their gradual plans to return to action, but the UFC continues with business as usual. Following a fun night of fights at UFC Vegas 3, they're back on Saturday with a fight night card headlined by Dustin Poirier vs Dan Hooker.
The return of sports also means the return of fantasy sports, so let's look at the top fantasy picks for this week's UFC card.
UFC Fantasy Picks
Brendan Allen (vs. Kyle Daukaus)
Brendan Allen is 2-0 in the UFC, with both of those wins coming inside two rounds. Overall, 13 of his 14 pro MMA wins have been by either KO/TKO or submission, and he's a huge favorite this week against Kyle Daukaus, who is making his UFC debut while taking this fight on short notice.
Miranda Maverick (vs. Mara Romero Borella)
FanDuel Sportsbook has Miranda Maverick as the biggest favorite on this entire card at -350. Despite this, there are nine fighters with higher salaries on FanDuel, leaving Maverick heavily under-priced for her UFC debut. She is also coming off of back-to-back wins over former UFC fighters (Pearl Gonzalez and DeAnna Bennett), so this shouldn't be too much of a step up in competition.
Khama Worthy (vs. Luis Pena)
Khama Worthy is tied for the lowest salary on the slate on FanDuel, and his upside could make him a steal. You'll need to play an underdog or two in your lineup, so his being +230 isn't too concerning, and if he pulls off the upset it should come with a ton of fantasy scoring. Worthy has scored 9 of his 15 wins by KO/TKO, including his UFC debut, which he won by first-round TKO, landing 21 significant strikes in a little over four minutes against Devonte Smith.
