Now, McClure has set his sights on UFC Fight Night 152 and locked in his picks. You can only see them at SportsLine
For UFC Fight Night 152 on Saturday, we can tell you McClure is high on Vicente Luque ($9,400 on DraftKings) as he takes on Derrick Krantz in a welterweight bought. Luque, known as "The Silent Assasin," has a huge striking edge that gives him early knockout capability.
Luque lands 5.13 significant strikes per minute at a 57 percent clip. He's also proven that he's capable of stopping a fight from the ground. Of his 15 career victories so far, eight have come by knockout and six have come by submission.
McClure's optimal MMA DFS optimal strategy also involves rostering Danny Roberts ($8,900 on DraftKings) as he takes on Michel Pereira in another welterweight battle. "Hot Chocolate" is 16-4, while his opponent is making his UFC debut on Saturday after compiling a 21-9 record fighting for other organizations. Roberts' eight fights of UFC experience against higher-quality competition should give him an advantage over Pereira on Saturday.
Roberts has had seven career knockouts and five career submissions, while Pereira was knocked out in the first round in Serbian Battle Championship 19 by Vladimir Badrljica. There's plenty of potential for Roberts to earn another knockout on Saturday against the 25-year-old Brazilian.
McClure is also targeting a value fighter who is a must-play because his fight is a huge mismatch. This pick could be the difference between cashing huge in DFS or going home with nothing.
