Fight IQ: UFC 282 Preview, Blachowicz vs Ankalaev

Fight IQ: UFC 282 Preview, Blachowicz vs Ankalaev

This article is part of our Fight IQ series.

Mark your calendar FRIDAY, 8 PM ET for the LIVE Fight IQ UFC 282 Preview! The MMA Monk and Drake Burden join Chris for an in-depth breakdown of the event on the RotoWire MMA YouTube channel. The crew will discuss the best DFS value plays, cash locks, and GPP darts to give players the best chance at a profitable night. It may not be the main event we expected, but if it wasn't for a (literal) last-second submission loss in his UFC debut, Magomed Ankalaev would be an undefeated fighter with 10 consecutive wins. He will put that dominance to the ultimate test when he takes on former champion Jan Blachowicz for the vacant light heavyweight title. The boys will cover every bout on the slate so make sure to join the LIVE CHAT to have all your questions answered.
