Jake Matthews is an experienced and well-rounded fighter with a complete skillset. He showed in his last bout significant strides on the feet with an impressive second-round knockout over Andre Fialho.

Mid-Priced Pick: Drew Dober | DraftKings: $8,600, FanDuel: $17

Drew Dober will be facing off against Bobby Green and this fight has the potential to be Fight of the Night. We can expect a battle between two stingy veteran strikers with high-volume and both can damage one another. Dober has a stone chin and has showed he can take damage and keep pushing forward looking for the finish.

Green has solid striking defense, but Dober’s power could easily fine the chin and put Green’s lights out late in this bout. According to Stokastic’s projections, Dober has a 58.5% win odds with a 30.9% chance for a knockout.

Value Pick: Jared Cannonier | DraftKings: $7,700, FanDuel: $18

Jared Cannonier will be looking to bounce back from a loss to Israel Adesanya. He will look to slow Sean Strickland down with his heavy leg kicks and dynamite in his hands. Before his title shot, Cannonier was coming off back-to-back wins over Kelvin Gastelum and a spectacular knockout over Derek Brunson.

Round one should be close but expect Strickland to take it over Cannonier. However, expect Cannonier to come out in round two pushing the pace and landing a power shot that puts Strickland’s lights out. The Top Fighters Tool gives Cannonier 49.3% win odds and a 33.2% chance of being the top-6 fighter.
