These rules are the same for both nights.
Existing MMA Subs: All existing MMA Subs will be automatically eligible for both nights.
For New Subs: Weekend Pass makes you eligible for Friday ONLY.
Hedge Weight: Make sure you read the Hedge Weight. Just cause I predict fighter (A) to win doesn’t mean Fighter (B) does not have a chance to win. It is a fight and hedge weight will show you how close of a fight I am calling it to be. Hedge Weight is geared towards me having to choose one fighter of the fighters in 10 lineups. However, keep in mind I will not have full exposure to any of these in 10 lineups. It is merely a scale for you to shoot from.
Michael Chiesa $8,000 vs. Kevin Lee $8,200
This fight is as close as splitting hairs! But hey, main events should be close right? Now for all you boxing historians out there...
Well, Welcome to Singapore! This is probably going to be a fight that is not high on the viewing scale considering it is starting at 4:30am EST. and is only on Fight Pass to boot. So I am sure this will be a card you will either wake and see your lines blow up or you will wake up in the green. I am going to bed very early that night and setting my alarm to see what’s brewing in Singapore, but it will not be an easy task pulling an all nighter into daylight. Lol. However, tricky card but manageable. One thing I can’t preach enough to you is the power of playing multiple lineups… Give yourself the best option to win by mixing and matching.

guys the DK site didnt update... so make a note when setting lineups
I am not crazy about any of the dogs this week, so I am gauging this on who really has more shots to last, possibly pull of something slick and sneak a win to save space/cap room. Let's get it.
*Hedge Weight is based on 10 lineups if I am forced to play them in all ten.

Let me start off with this and listen closely
Ok guys look, here is the deal. I am going out on a heavy limb here. I am going so contrarian on this card that it is borderline disturbing. We are in Brazil tomorrow, and for those of you that haven’t experienced fights in Brazil, let me give you a brief description. YOU WILL NEVER SEE SHADIER JUDGING IN YOUR LIFE.
They love their hometown kids in Brazil, and by all means, will give them the benefit of the doubt in a decision unless it is decisive. It actually is pretty scary fighting in Brazil. You have the fan base screaming Uh Vai Morrer (You are going to Die) and the judges already having the Brazilian fighters up a point before the fight even starts. So it is a very, very scary place to fight, even for us on a picking perspective.

Ok lets get started
This week the straight bets are so out of whack that I would look like a fool pushing you guys on -400 favorites. So I am staying away from the obvious here. You guys can figure out those lines on your own. I am going to drag out some not so obvious plays that you may be interested in.
