William Knight and Aleksa Camur will meet in a light heavyweight bout on the preliminary card of UFC 253 on Fight Island on September 26th. But what are the DFS implications here?

DraftKings DFS Values

William Knight: $7,600
Aleksa Camur: $8,600

Knight is 8-1 and coming off a first round KO at Dana White’s Contender Series against Cody Brundage just 26 days ago. With a 100% knockout rate in his wins, we should expect big swings from the newcomer and underdog.

Camur is 6-0 with five knockouts before reaching the UFC, and earned a unanimous decision win over Justin Ledet in his promotion debut. With a style that can endear him to the fans and a powerful stand up game, look for this fight to end before a decision.

If you’re playing multiple rosters, this might be a bout you’ll want to be on both sides of, as the unknown factor is high, but so is the chance to score DFS points.
