Alexander Volkanovski (DK: $9,200): As we have stated in the past, takedowns are DraftKings gold and Volkanovski has some of the best takedowns in the UFC. Volkanovski comes into this fight against Darren Elkins with a 17-1 record (4-0 in the UFC). Volkanovski comes in with a 76.5% finish rate with 10 wins by KO/TKO and three wins by submission. He is also the biggest betting favorite coming in at -245. Volkanovski is an all-around good fighter with crisp boxing and striking at a high 5.91 significant strikes per minute. His takedown and wrestling are top notch averaging 4.46 takedowns per three rounds. When he has you on the mat, he is very suffocating and always looking to advance to either get a submission or to get on top and use his ground and pound. His opponent, Darren Elkins, only has 50% takedown defense and we anticipate Volkanovski getting takedowns at will. We don’t see any paths to victory for his opponent and this will be the fight that Elkins finally doesn’t come back from the dead to get a win as Volkanovski’s cardio won’t let that happen. Alexander Volkanovski wins by easy decision or a ground and pound TKO.
