In a rematch of the last fight for both combatants, Alexander Volkanovski faces Max Holloway for the featherweight championship at UFC 251 from Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. It’s the co-main event of the biggest card of the year, but is there DFS value to be found?
Alexander Volkanovski: $9,100
Max Holloway: $7,100
Volkanovski is a -210 favorite, while Holloway comes in as the +170 underog.
This seems like a stay away as you’re caught right in the middle if you take Volkanovski: He’s very much good enough to win with an 8-0 record in the UFC and 21-1 overall in MMA, including a victory of his current opponent just seven months ago. But four of his last six wins are by decision, and the other two were late-second round KO’s.
This should be a heckuva fight between two outstanding competitors, but barring a finish neither has shown much of lately (Holloway has gone the distance in his last three, and lost two of them), you just can’t find a stoppage. Great to watch, but not great for DFS points.
