A last minute change at UFC Vegas 10 pairs lightweights Roosevelt Roberts and Kevin Croom in the octagon Saturday for UFC Vegas 10 on ESPN+.

“The Predator” Roberts enters with a 10-2 record, and the 26-year-old is considered one of the up-and-coming stars in the lightweight division. He’s been active with six bouts in the last two years, but is just 2-2 in his last four. including a loss to the always-fighting Jim Miller. He started his career 8-0, and he’ll look to get back to those winning ways on Saturday.

Croom is known as “The Hard-Hitting Hillbilly,” and makes his UFC debut with a 21-12 at age 33. He’s won his last three in the Fighting Alliance Championship as well as Bellator. Fighting out of Columbia, Missouri, he has 16 stoppages in his 21 wins, 10 by submission.

Free space alert! Roberts DFS price was set when he was still competing against Matt Frevola. He was -112 to win that bout, but has moved to the biggest money line favorite on the card against Croom. Take the DFS points bargain on offer, even if you’ll be parroting everyone else. Just too much value here to pass on having Roberts at this salary.
