Umar Nurmagomedov is coming off a solid 2022 campaign with a nasty rear-naked choke victory over Brian Kelleher and a unanimous decision over Nate Maness in June. Prior too Nurmagomedov had not stepped inside the octagon in over a year. He has strong grappling, and his striking is continuing to improve in every fight. He will be facing a strong grappler in Raoni Barcelos, however expect Nurmagomedov’s suffocating pressure to seal the decision.

Value Pick: Claudio Ribeiro| DraftKings: $7,900, FanDuel: $15

Claudio Ribeiro is currently riding a six-fight winning streak with all coming via knockout and one not coming in the first-round. He secured his UFC contract with a 25 second knockout over Ivan Valenzuela on Dana White’s Contender Series in August. Ribeiro will boast a four-inch reach and three-inch height advantage over Abdul Razak Alhassan. Alhassan has all the skills to get the job done. However, Ribeiro is dangerous from range and with the current slump of Alhassan, we can see Ribeiro getting another early finish. Stokastic’s projections give him 49.7% win odds with a 43.2% chance for a knockout.

Value Pick: Nick Aguirre  | DraftKings: $7,300, FanDuel: $9

Nick Aguirre is a talented fighter and is on a fantastic 7-0 start in his career. This is a big step-up competition, concerning that his previous opponents combined record being 8-9. There are a couple of obstacles facing Aguirre in this fight, first is taking this step-up on short notice and second fighting up in weight when he tends to fight at 135lbs. That said, there is a lot of risk rostering him in your DFS lineups, however with a victory could paid off nicely at a mere $7,300. If Dan Argueta comes out with his pressing style that could work against him especially if his cardio was to waver, giving Aguirre opportunities to secure a victory. Aguirre has three wins via knockout and four via submission. Stokastic’s projections give him 17.3% win odds.
