Two ranked welterweights get in the cage for the co-main event of UFC Fight Night Saturday when #13 Robbie Lawler takes on #14 Neil Magny at 170 lbs. live on ESPN+ from Las Vegas.
Robbie Lawler goes by “Ruthless” and is 28-14-1 in MMA. Now at age 38, he made his UFC debut in May of 2002 at UFC 37, and has lost his last three fights to Colby Covington, Ben Askren, and Rafael Dos Anjos. His last win is a unanimous decision over Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in July of 2017. Despite his ranking, he might be on the cut line for his UFC future depending on tonight’s outcome. He lands 3.57 strikes per minute and 0.71 takedowns per 15 minutes.
“The Hatian Sensation” Magny is 23-8 as a pro, and has won four of his last five. Unanimous decisions over Jingliang Li and Anthony Rocco Martin means he’s looking for his third win of 2020. Tthe 33-year-old averages 3.95 strikes a minute and 2.55 takedowns per full fight, but he does tend to go the distance with just seven knockouts and three submissions in his 23 career victories.

Here are the DraftKings DFS salaries for Robbie Lawler vs. Neil Magny tonight:
Robbie Lawler: $7,600
Neil Magny: $8,600
Magny is favored here, but not a fantasy favorite. He’s only averaged 75.5 DFS points in his last two fights, and those were both wins. Lawler can also give him a hard enough time where it can be tough to score. The short odds on Magny winning by KO or TKO here are indicative that it’s a longshot for him to get a stoppage. We’ll stay away here.
