UFC returns to ‘The Land Down Under’ this Saturday night (Sunday 10th May, 5:15 PM, IST ) live from the Adelaide Entertainment Center in Adelaide, Australia with UFC Fight Night 65 on UFC Fight Pass, featuring a main event bout between two top five heavyweights including Stipe Miocic against Mark Hunt along with many closely contested fights as well. While like most of the UFC card, which are quite entertaining affairs, with some Fantasy MMA Kountermove, you could make this card even more fun.
“What is Kountermove? -> is currently the world’s leading Fantasy MMA community. Kountermove is like fantasy Cricket, football or baseball, but for Combat sports.

How it works


So let’s break down the UFC Fight Night 65 for fantasy MMA:-

MVP Pick:

Bec Rawlings

KounterMove Price $5300

I never had much faith on Rawlings abilities as a fighter, but I have selected her as an MVP pick just on the basis of how poor her competition is this week. The 32-year-old Ellis has lost six times via submission in her MMA career. Simply put when going gets tough she has the tendency to quit. while With three submission victories under her belt, Rawlings has chance to get one more submission victory in front of her home crowd in Australia & collect many Kountermove points in the process.


Underdog Picks:

Stipe Miocic (12-2)

KounterMove Price $5200

Stipe Miocic is a TOP 5 Heavyweight UFC fighter who is one of the best boxers in the division. His speciality is to outbox and outland his opponents with good movement & better cardio for a Heavey weight fighter.

He is coming from the back of a loss yet he put on a great performance against former UFC HW champion Dos Santos in which he went toe-to-toe with him & won many exchanges and at least two rounds out of five. I think he will get a finish against the very tough Mark hunt all he has to do is avoid Hunts devastating overhand right. 

Sean O'Connell (16-6)

KounterMove Price $4500

O’Connell is a decent fighter with good stand up. He uses good combinations to effectively out land his opponent. He has enough power to rock his opponents with those combinations & he must be high on confidence from his last TKO victory over Matt van Buren. On top of that he is fighting a 42-year-old that has been knocked out five times in eight losses.


Fighter to avoid:

Dylan Andrews

KounterMove Price $5200

The Ultimate Fighter 17 alum Dylan Andrews is a decent fighter but is coming of two back-to-back losses in which he got knocked out. He is 35 years of age & fighting a much younger fighter. His opponent Brad Scott is no world beater but With his age and suspect chin I m not at all confident in Andrews as a pick & certainly I’ll avoid him at this price.

That’s it Happy picking and Good luck!
