Champion Options – Renato Moicano (2.25x) and Yan Xiaonan (2.35x)
I’m really looking forward to this slate on SuperDraft and I think there are many viable Champion and Flex options this week.
I am likely going to prioritize the Co-Main Event in all formats, and I think both Renato Moicano and Rafael Dos Anjos make for excellent Champion and Flex options. Moicano is my preferred target at Champion at 2.25x considering his multiplier. He has five rounds to work with and averages more than 5 significant strikes landed per minute.
Plus, Dos Anjos also defends takedowns historically below 60 percent, which just gives Moicano multiple paths to producing offense. Even in a loss Moicano could put up a solid score, but in a win, I expect he’d be one of the highest scoring fighters on this entire slate. Dos Anjos at 1.8x is viable as well based on his floor and ceiling in a win.
One more risky Champion target is Yan Xiaonan at 2.35x against Marina Rodriguez, as I expect this to be a stand-up based fight. Rodriguez is a moderate favorite, however, Xiaonan has landed 150 significant strikes in a fight before, and will likely have to push pace and volume here to remain competitive.
Volume is rewarded on SD, and even in a close decision win, I think Xiaonan can put up a big score with that 2.35x multiplier.
Flex Options – Kennedy Nzechukwu (1.3x) and Maryna Moroz (1.5x)
I will be a bit more focused on the mid-range and value range for my Flex options, and two fighters I like are Kennedy Nzechukwu and Maryna Moroz.
Nzechukwu is very tough to trust, and tough to invest in across all fantasy sites. Here on SD, I’m more willing to use him considering his 1.3x multiplier. He has volume potential against Negumereanu, who only defends strikes at 29 percent. Plus, Nzechukwu has ITD potential as well at +145. The combination of the metrics and dynamic of the fight lead me to believe Nzechukwu has a high floor and ceiling in a victory.
I will also be rostering the opposite side of that fight in Negumereanu at 1.4x, who has some early knockout potential as well.
Maryna Moroz is another target of mine at 1.5x, who is taking on Mariya Agapova in a heated rivalry this weekend. She’s a risk as well, but just landed 139 significant strikes and two takedowns in her last decision victory.
Even if those numbers aren’t to be expected here, I expect a high paced fight, lots of volume, and some wrestling equity for Moroz as well. With the crowd behind her, I have a feeling this fight could play out competitively and I’m willing to take the risk at 1.5x.
