Tony Gravely is a former college wrestler who’s very athletic and has some very strong ground and pound, and he tries to use those strengths against his opponents. On the regional scene before making it to the UFC, he fought many UFC-level fighters in Manny Bermudez, Ricky Bandejas, Merab Dvalishvilli and Patchy Mix. Now, he’s taking on a 34-year-old Anthony Birchak who’s making his 2nd run in the UFC. In his return to the UFC, he was submitted in the 1st round to Gustavo Lopez. In that fight Lopez was able to take him down on 2 of 3 attempts. Lopez is nowhere near as good of a wrestler as Gravely as he averages 5.60 takedowns per 15 minutes. Gravely can take down Birchak with ease and work that ground and pound. Vegas likes Gravely to finish this fight inside the distances and the staff at DFI believe has a good shot to do that. Even in a decision win, we’ve seen Gravely score over 100 DraftKings points. Lock Tony Gravely into all formats for DraftKings.
