Two middleweights from Pennsylvania looking for their first UFC main roster victory square off at UFC 255 when Kyle Daukaus faces Dustin Stoltzfus on ESPN+ Saturday evening.
Daukaus is the brother of heavyweight Chris Daukaus, and the Philadelphia-born fighter is 9-1 career in MMA. His only loss was in his UFC debut via unanimous decision to Brendan Allen last June, and he looks to get on the board here. The 27-year-old has a much different style than his brother, with eight submissions in his nine career wins.
Stoltzfus is 13-1 career, and his first-round stoppage of Joseph Pyfer at Dana White’s Contender Series in August is why he’s here. The 29-year-old from Lancaster, PA has 10 career stoppages, five by KO and five by submission. Before coming to Las Vegas, Stoltzfus fought in the German MMA Championship and We Love MMA promotions.
Here are the odds and betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook for Kyle Daukaus vs. Dustin Stoltzfus at UFC 255 on November 21st.

Kyle Daukaus: -315, (83% of action, 77% of bets)

Daukaus has two decisions that didn’t score a ton of points between his DWCS win and main roster loss, but he should have the best of it here. If he can get Stoltzfus on the mat, it should be smooth sailing for a fighter that’s generally faced a better level of competition in his career.
