~ Plus grappling
~ 5 finishes in 7 wins

Jinh Yu Frey – Height: 5’3″ – Reach: 65″ – Southpaw
~ Low quantity
~ Plus wrestling
~ 3 finishes in 11 wins

DFS Perspective: Demopoulos is harmful on the mat and can possible be seeking to get it there early. She tends to battle together with her wrestling, so getting it down will probably be a difficulty. Frey has good wrestling however could be clever to maintain it on the toes the place she’s going to maintain a substantial benefit. Without an early end, I don’t count on a excessive rating and would keep away from each for DFS functions.

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Frey

Brian Kelleher – Height: 5’6″ – Reach: 66″ – Switch

~ Plus wrestling/grappling
~ 18 finishes in 24 wins

~ Plus wrestling
~ 6 finishes in 9 wins

DFS Perspective: Bautista may have the sting in quantity whereas Kelleher will maintain a bonus in energy and grappling. I count on the battle to happen totally on the toes, however Kelleher could be clever to get the battle down. If Bautista avoids the bullrush and might hold the battle on the toes and at vary, he ought to be capable of decide Kelleher aside and take a call. The odds for the battle must be nearer, possibly even flipped. I like Kelleher as a GPP punt for DFS. Bautista may battle to hit worth in a call win and may solely be utilized in GPP as properly. 

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Kelleher

JP Buys (9-4-0) v. Cody Durden (12-4-1)

JP Buys – Height: 5’5″ – Reach: 67″ – Orthodox

~ 8 finishes in 9 wins

Cody Durden – Height: 5’7″ – Reach: 67″ – Southpaw
~ Moderate quantity
~ Plus wrestling/grappling
~ 10 finishes in 12 wins

DFS Perspective: Buys has struggled in his two UFC fights, getting knocked down seven occasions and failing to get something happening the mat. His finest likelihood to win is getting the battle to the mat and discovering management, then on the lookout for a chance to submit. Durden may have a big benefit on the toes however prefers to make use of his wrestling to regulate opponents to win rounds. Durden has an opportunity to smash worth with takedown and management or a knockout, so I like him for money and GPP contests.

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Durden

Raulian Paiva (21-4-0) v. Sergey Morozov (17-5-0)

Raulian Paiva – Height: 5’8″ – Reach: 69″ – Orthodox

~ 7 finishes in 21 wins

Sergey Morozov – Height: 5’6″ – Reach: 67″ – Orthodox
~ Low quantity
~ Plus wrestling/grappling
~ 11 finishes in 17 wins

DFS Perspective: I don’t see Paiva placing a lot of a battle up on this one, and the one approach he wins is by a fortunate crack or mistake from Morozov. Morozov must be higher all over the place this goes and might chain takedowns for management time or search for an early end. As such, he makes for a wonderful money and GPP play. 

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Morozov

Shayilan Nuerdanbieke (37-10-0) v. TJ Brown (16-8-0)

Shayilan Nuerdanbieke – Height: 5’8″ – Reach: 69″ – Orthodox
~ Low quantity

~ 28 finishes in 37 wins

 TJ Brown – Height: 5’9″ – Reach: 72″ – Switch
~ Moderate quantity
~ Plus wrestling/grappling
~ 13 finishes in 16 wins

DFS Perspective: Both guys come from a wrestling background and will discover themselves battling for takedowns. Brown may have a big benefit on the toes and may look to maintain the battle there. I count on this to be a 15-minute hanging battle, yielding a low rating for DFS functions. Either man can be utilized in GPP contests, as a end is all the time potential, however I’d keep away from money contests.

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Brown

Carlos Ulberg (6-1-0) v. Tafon Nchukwi (6-2-0)

Carlos Ulberg – Height: 6’4″ – Reach: 77″ – Orthodox
~ High quantity
~ Decent wrestling
~ 2 finishes in 4 wins

Tafon Nchukwi – Height: 6’0″ – Reach: 77″ – Orthodox
~ High quantity
~ Decent wrestling
~ 4 finishes in 6 wins

DFS Perspective: This battle ought to primarily happen on the toes for so long as it lasts. Both guys throw a ton of quantity and are hittable at occasions. So lengthy as they don’t play it overly cautious, I count on one in all them to get knocked out early. I aspect with Ulberg only a tad, as he throws a bit extra quantity, however both man may swing this battle, and each ought to solely be used for GPP contests. A choice would virtually actually yield a low rating. 

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Ulberg

Chris Curtis (28-8-0) v. Rodolfo Vieira (8-1-0)

Chris Curtis – Height: 5’10” – Reach: 75″ – Orthodox
~ High quantity
~ Minimal wrestling/grappling
~ 17 finishes in 28 wins

Rodolfo Vieira – Height: 6’0″ – Reach: 73″ – Orthodox
~ Low quantity
~ Elite wrestling/grappling
~ 8 finishes in 8 wins

DFS Perspective: Curtis has wowed in two consecutive fights, scoring enormous knockouts as a average to massive canine. He has distinctive energy and cardio and will simply discover one other early knockout right here. Vieria doesn’t provide quite a bit on the toes however is a world-class BJJ specialist and all the time a risk when the battle hits the mat. He will look early for takedowns, and if he will get Curtis down, the battle will possible finish shortly after. Both guys make glorious performs in GPP contests, as this battle will end early. I like Vieira for money contests as properly.

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Vieira

Nate Maness (14-1-0) v. Umar Nurmagomedov (14-0-0)

Nate Maness – Height: 5’10” – Reach: 72″ – Orthodox
~ Low quantity
~ Plus wrestling/grappling
~ 8 finishes in 14 wins

Umar Nurmagomedov – Height: 5’8″ – Reach: 69″ – Orthodox
~ Low quantity
~ Elite wrestling/grappling
~ 8 finishes in 14 wins

DFS Perspective: Nurmagomedov is the cardboard’s largest favourite, however I don’t assume this battle will come as straightforward because the oddsmakers assume. He is a vicious wrestler and has seemed phenomenal in his two UFC fights, successful by submission in each. However, Maness is as powerful as they arrive and may have the benefit on the toes. If he can hold it there, he can pile up quantity or catch Nurmagomedov as he makes an attempt a takedown. On paper and in most individuals’s minds, Nurmagomedov has already gained this battle. It is predicted that he chains takedowns after which finds one other submission. However, Maness is a reliable wrestler and grappler in his personal proper and will put up a terrific battle and doubtlessly rating the upset. Nurmagomedov is secure for money contests and could be blended into GPP. Maness is my favourite GPP dart throw on the slate. 

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Maness

Thiago Moises (15-6-0) v. Christos Giagos (19-9-0)

Thiago Moises – Height: 5’9″ – Reach: 70″ – Orthodox

~ 9 finishes in 15 wins

Christos Giagos – Height: 5’10” – Reach: 71″ – Orthodox
~ Low quantity
~ Plus wrestling/grappling
~ 11 finishes in 19 wins

DFS Perspective: I count on a whole lot of this battle to put on the mat, as each guys favor to grapple. Moises may have a bonus anyplace the battle goes. Giagos must get the battle to the mat and management, or he’ll discover himself in large bother. Look for Moises to get again into the win column with an early end and choice with management time and quantity. He is a secure play for money and GPP. Giagos could be sprinkled into GPP contests.

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Moises

Josh Parisian (14-5-0) v. Alan Baudot (8-4-0)

Josh Parisian – Height: 6’4″ – Reach: 79″ – Orthodox

~ 12 finishes in 14 wins

Alan Baudot – Height: 6’3″ – Reach: 79″ – Orthodox

~ Minimal wrestling/grappling
~ 7 finishes in 8 wins

DFS Perspective: I count on this battle to remain on the toes for so long as it lasts. Parisian throws excessive quantity however leaves himself hittable. Baudot is analogous however tends to protect excessive a bit extra. Both guys want a win, however extra so for Baudot, and I feel he lastly will get it. He ought to be capable of catch Parisian as he walks ahead together with his immense energy and finish it early. Both guys are arduous to belief, so GPP is the higher play.

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Baudot

Neil Magny (26-9-0) v. Shavkat Rakhmonov (15-0-0)

Neil Magny – Height: 6’3″ – Reach: 80″ – Orthodox

DFS Perspective: Magny has been round a very long time and has been a little bit of a gatekeeper to the highest 10 within the Welterweight division. He has a strong all-around sport and can want each little bit of it on this one. Rakhmonov continues to smash by way of fighters, and I count on this to be no totally different. He has an exceptionally well-rounded sport and has completed each battle he has taken. He will strain ahead and may overwhelm Magny on the toes or the mat early and discover one other end. Magny can be utilized as a GPP dart because the skilled veteran, however Rakhmonov ought to win this handily and is secure for money and GPP contests.

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Rahkmonov

Arman Tsarukyan (18-2-0) v. Mateusz Gamrot (20-1-0, 1NC)

DFS Perspective: This must be an unimaginable battle with two highly-touted prospects going at it for 25 minutes. Both guys have related preventing types with wrestling backgrounds, and I count on a great mixture of hanging and grappling. Tsarukyan is the higher total fighter, and I count on him to get his hand raised. This is a type of fights you would stack for money contests, however I’d decide one or the opposite for GPPs.

UFC Vegas 57 Pick: Tsarukyan
