Hello MMA fans! We have 12 fights this weekend! From Nashville! The main GPP is a $15 buy-in 25K to 1st with total of 120K being paid out! Let’s dig in!
Eric Shelton $8,700 vs Jordan Espinosa $7,500
Preferred play is Shelton. This should be a fun one with both men offering strong striking and dangerous submission.
Pick- Eric Shelton via Unanimous Decision
Ryan Macdonald $7,900 vs Chris Gutierrez $8,300
Cash- Gutierrez is playable. Preferred play Gutierrez.
I’m not impressed with Macdonald, but he does have good striking and combinations. He has no defense at all. Gutierrez is to good of a striker, heavy low kicks will set up a fight ending KO.
PICK- Chris Gutierrez via 1st round KO
Randa Markos $8,000 vs Angela Hill $8,200
Preferred play is Hill.. This fight I don’t have much interest in. Hill is faster and a better striker. Possible fade all together.
Pick- Angela Hill via Unanimous Decision
Alexis Davis $8,600 vs Jennifer Maia $7,600
Cash- Both are playable (Good floors)
Preferred play is Davis. No interest in this fight.
Pick- Alexis Davis via Unanimous Decision
Marlon Vera $8,300 vs Frankie Saenz $ 7,800
Preferred play is Saenz. I don’t have a lot of interest in this fight. Vera has Submission skill, so if you want to take a few shots I a GPP that is fine.
Pick- Frankie Saenz via Unanimous Decision
Bobby Moffett $8,800 vs Bryce Mitchell $7,400
Cash- Moffett is playable
Preferred play is Moffett. I think he has good wrestling skills and likely to shoot for takedowns. If making 20+ lineups I would take a couple of shots on Mitchell could get a finish.
Pick- Bobby Moffett via Unanimous Decision
Maycee Barber $8,900 vs JJ Aldrich $7,300
Cash- Barber is playable.
Preferred play is Barber. She is one of my favorite plays. I think she will score well in a win. Very nasty in the clinch solid knees and nasty elbows.
Pick- Maycee Barber via Unanimous Decision
Luis Pena $9200 vs Steven Peterson $7,000
Cash- Peterson is playable (all formats)
Preferred play is Peterson is a live dog probably will be pretty chalky. Reason for picking him high striker 5 sig strikes per minute. Pena GPP play will need a finish to pay off his salary. ( I think is very possible.)
Pick-Luis Pena via 3rd round Submission
Deiveson Figueiredo $8,500 vs Jussier Formiga $7,700
Preferred play is Figueiredo. Not a big fan of this fight, but I think Figueiredo can get a finish.
Pick- Deiveson Figueiredo via 2nd round TKO
John Makdessi $9,100 vs Jesus Pinedo $ 7,100
Preferred play is Pinedo. The reason is I feel Makdessi needs a finish to pay off his salary. Which is possible, but not sure it happens. I feel like Pinedo is a good GPP play, I would have some exposure to Makdessi in case of the KO. 15% is what I would do.
Pick- John Makdessi via Unanimous Decision
Curtis Blaydes $9,000 vs Justin Willis $7,200
Cash- Curtis Blaydes is playable
Preferred play is Blaydes. One of my favorite fights to target. I think someone is getting knocked out. I would have a few Willis lineups as well more of a hedge play.
Pick- Curtis Blaydes via 2nd round KO
Stephen Thompson $9,300 vs Anthony Pettis $6,900
Cash- Thompson is playable
Preferred play is Thompson. Thompson will need a finish to pay his salary which I do think happens. You could take a few shots on Pettis in GPP, but don’t get crazy maybe 2 if making 50 lineups.
Pick- Stephen Thompson via 2nd round TKO
Thanks for reading hope this TAKEDOWN helps with your lineup building! Good luck! Let’s takedown a GPP!
