Well here we are with a very interesting event. We are going to watch Anderson “The Spider” Silva come back from a year suspension to face Michael “The Count” Bisping in his home country of England. Silva was forced to take a year off after testing positive for multiple banned substances. Silva at one point blamed it on male enhancement drugs which has given Michael Bisping a lot of ammo for his trash talk. The entire event will only be available on FightPass, so if you don’t have a subscription I’d recommend starting a trial right before the fight takes place. Plus there is so much content available on UFC Fight Pass now that any fan of combat sports should be subscribed. An impressive with could earn Silva a title shot this year, which is something many fans would like to see. Another interesting bout between two top ten middleweight will be Gegard Mousasi vs Thales Leites. I am also excited to see Tome Breese take on Keita Nakamura in a welterweight bout. This has been a pretty good year for UFC DraftKings, who recently Kountermove Fantasy MMA. I hope this year will give us many more DraftKings Fantasy MMA contests and other combat sports. UFC Fight Night 84 will feature 13 bouts, and the entire card will only be available on UFC FightPass. Draft your UFC London DraftKings lineup now!
UFC London DraftKings: Silva vs Bisping
Many have called “The Spider” the greatest fighter in the world. Anderson Silva has been in the cage with some of the best mixed martial artists in the world. The 40 year old Silva will be looking to make a comeback after his 1 year suspension. Michael Bisping has been ruthless in taunting the former champion, bringing up his steroid use. During the weigh ins, “The Count” went in for a handshake with Silva and pulled his hand away last second. It seems like Bisping wants to make Silva mad any way he can. I believe this ignites a fire under Silva and will cause him to look for the finish, which I think he will get.
Thales Leites ($8,400)
This should be an interesting fight between the number 9 and 10 middleweights. Thales Leites who is coming off a loss to Bisping will take on Gegard Mousasi who recently lost to Uriah Hall. Both fighters have a similar height and reach, however Leites has a much lower DraftKings salary. I believe Leites has what it takes to win the fight and is an excellent low cost pick.
Makwan Amirkhani ($10,200)
Makwan “Mr. Finland” Amirkhani already has a couple impressive finishes in the UFC. He will be taking on fellow featherweight Mike Wilkinson who hasn’t fought since 2014. Amirkhani has a slight height and reach advantage over Wilkinson which I believe will help him out a lot. Amirkhani has 9 wins by submission and I believe he will be able to submit Wilkinson. Makwan isn’t too expensive and should make a great addition to your UFC London DraftKings lineup.
Arnold Allen ($10,900)
Arnold “Almighty” Allen is one of my favorite featherweights to watch. The dude has some killer elbows and has put away some very tough opponents. Allen will be taking on Yaotzin Meza who has a 4 inch reach advantage going into the fight. The 22 year old Arnold Allen is 13 years younger than his opponent and has only lost once by way of decision. I believe Allen has a better chance at finishing the fight. Allen is the 3rd most expensive fighter for this UFC London DraftKings game. I see Arnold Allen finishing this fight in the first or second round.
Daniel Omielanczuk ($9,600)
Daniel will be taking on Jarjis “Man Mountain” Danho who will be making his UFC appearance. Omielanczuk has a KO and a TKO victory in the UFC, however has lost twice by way of decision. Daniel has never been knocked out or submitted in his professional career. I believe Omielanczuk will have an experience advantage and has a good chance of finishing the fight.
