UFC 187: Cormier vs. Johnson Kountermove Fantasy MMA Preview


As always when the big UFC events come around, Kountermove Fantasy MMA gets even more interesting because of the familiar names, close match-ups and unpredictability. UFC 187 embodies that more than any as probably the most stacked card of the year.

When picking your team this week Donald Cerrone is a no-brainer. The Cowboy is in huge form of late and at 4500 against late replacement John Makdessi he must be the first time on everyone’s team sheet.

After that, Travis Browne will probably be next. At 5200 Browne gives you large output and a high chance of a KO against the often weak chinned Andrei Arlovski. Then the hard choices come. Anthony Johnson looks well priced at 4800 in the main event against Daniel Cormier (5400) but Chris Weidman (5400) is pretty steep against Vitor Belfort (5000).

Apart from Donald Cerrone, my pick of the week this time around must be newcomer Islam Makhachev who has a high finishing rate while my one to avoid is Dong Hyun Kim who takes on the iron-chinned Josh Burkmann.
