Top MMA DFS Picks and Lineup for UFC Fight Night 207

| April 22, 2022 10:54 am PDT

In many ways, this weekend is no different from any other. Top lineups are on my mind, and I’m trying to get my hands on the best MMA DFS picks for UFC Fight Night 207 (also known as UFC Vegas 52).

As usual, I have built my free DFS lineup for the UFC this Saturday, April 23 with DraftKings and will be hoping for success. As you might already be aware, it’s tough to get a perfect combination of winners but far from impossible. 

So, this week’s free UFC Fight Night 207 DFS lineup is looking good. I’ve got some sweet picks locked in and I’m fairly confident of getting what I’m after. If you’re looking to bet on the fights, take your pick of the top bookies from this list of sports betting sites to use. 

I’ll be getting into the gambling side of things later. First, let’s start the daily fantasy sports stuff with the first pick of what I hope is a winning DFS MMA lineup for UFC Vegas 52.

Best MMA DFS Picks for UFC Fight Night 207

It’s not the most exciting card of all time, is it? While some are focusing on that, I’m concentrating on making winning DFS picks for the UFC this weekend.

The first choice comes in the main event between Amanda Lemos and Jessica Andrade. For some, this is a toss-up. Not me though. I’m especially confident of getting this one right. 

Jessica Andrade $8,900 

Andrade all day. Although Lemos has a record of 11-1, she has never faced anyone as good as her compatriot.

The former strawweight champion walks into my free DFS lineup for UFC Vegas 52 because she is the better fighter. Not only does she have a better resume, but “Bate Estaca” also provides us with a rare commodity in this division — tried and tested finishing power.

Lemos is no dud, of course. But I don’t see how she can contain the powerful 30-year-old.

I’m feeling the powerful former queen of the division at this price. She is, on the balance of things, arguably the best of the best MMA DFS picks for UFC Fight Night: Lemos vs. Andrade.

Convinced? You could say that.

Alexander Romanov $9,600

Is there room for an absolute stud in my UFC Fight Night 207 DFS lineup? As you can see, there is.

Moldovan heavyweight Alexander Romanov is being touted as a potential, future champion. While the unbeaten, former freestyle wrestling standout has some way to go before he can be considered among the elite heavyweights of the promotion, he’s building up a solid UFC record.

  • Win Over Jared Vanderaa by TKO – UFC Fight Night: Dern vs. Rodriguez – October 9, 2021
  • Win Over Juan Espino by Technical Decision – UFC on ESPN: Whittaker vs. Gastelum – April 17, 2021 
  • Win Over M. Rogerio de Lima by Submission – UFC on ESPN: Santos vs. Teixeira – November 7, 2020 
  • Win Over Roque Martinez by Submission – UFC Fight Night: Waterson vs. Hill – September 12, 2020

If you’re looking to build a top-winning MMA daily fantasy sports lineup for UFC Vegas 52, I’d recommend adding this guy to your picks. 

Especially as his opponent, Chase Sherman, is a last-minute stand-in with a record of 0-3 from his last three fights in the promotion. Dropped by the UFC, he was only drafted back in for his willingness to take this fight.

Claudio Puelles $8,000

Puelles is a surprisingly decent value MMA DFS pick for UFC Fight Night: Lemos vs. Andrade.

The Peruvian is not the most dangerous fighter on planet earth. He is, however, younger and fresher than fan-favorite Clay Guida. Guida, who turned 40 in December. A dangerous submission artist, Puelles offers a real threat to “The Carpenter,” and this could be a good reason to add him to your lineup.

Guida will have to be hot on taking the younger man down. One mistake, and it could be lights.

That’s my top three UFC Fight Night: Lemos vs. Andrade DFS picks in the books.

What about the other fighters to look out for? Here’s my full, free DFS lineup for the UFC this Saturday, April 23. 

  • Jessica Andrade $8,900 
  • Alexander Romanov $9,600
  • Claudio Puelles $8,000
  • Charles Jourdain $8,500
  • Montana De La Rosa – $7,200

Alongside my main picks, I’m going for Charles Jourdain to overcome Lando Vannata in the opening fight of the main card.

Both Jourdain and Vannata are up and down like see-saws. But I fancy the Canadian to get a grip of the fight and take it by decision.

Montana De La Rosa is the best UFC Fight Night 207 MMA DFS sleeper/value pick of the evening.

Maycee Barber is hella overrated and is fortunate not to be 0-3 from her last few visits to the Octagon.

At $7,200, De La Rosa is a low-risk play that could very well complement any UFC Vegas DFS winning lineups.

Best Betting Tips for UFC Fight Night 207

I mentioned earlier that I would cover betting picks for UFC Fight Night: Lemos vs. Andrade.

In case you missed it, I have provided a full and comprehensive preview for betting on the fights. Here are the top three betting picks for UFC Fight Night 207 that I recommend.

  • Andrade to Win by KO/TKO (+225)
  • Pedro to Win by KO/TKO (-110)
  • Puelles to Win (-110)

If you’re placing wagers on UFC Fight Night 207, you can find my top three picks, above.
